I do not know. We live in a world in which the only utopian visions arrive in commercial breaks: magical visions of an impossibly hospitable world, peopled by bright-eyed attractive men, women, children… Where nobody dies… Where all it takes is cheap, easily available product - a packet of salted peanuts or a new type of carpet cleaner to bring immediate, undiluted joy… And I thought that was honest. I thought I was being honest. In my worlds people died. I thought I was telling the truth, I thought… They were actors.

A man, two thousand years ago, predicting credit cards. But he wasn’t a mere man.
