There’s the correct answer, and then there are the group of answers we’d like to hear.

    “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God”

    “…So it’s very difficult?”

    “Ma’am, if you somehow have the power to force a dromedary through a 3 millimeter aperture, you shouldn’t.”

    Thing is, what Choan REALLY owns that’s ACTUALLY valuable, is her intellect.
    And giving that to others is making tech that makes other’s life’s better, either for free or for cheap…
    Which WOULD help with her thinking she’s becoming evil, in the end XD

    Most of the answers to the Great Questions of Life are actually quite simple.

    The complexity happens when the answers aren’t the answers people want to hear.

    One example: “Eat less and exercise more.”

    Choan entirely missed the main point Werjimond left for her to discern, to wit: Choan’s arrogance is her main obstacle to being wiser. Not to mention more compassionate, more sympathetic, more empathetic, easier to get along with, more capable of doing more with her gifts and, of course, capable of discerning this one Goddamn simple point.

    Knocking the high-tech props on which Choan rests would be a simple response to such willful, indeed pride-cursed arrogance. But I sense Werjimond isn’t going to do that, not least because it isn’t effective, satisfying as it may be. The better recourse is to lead Choan into a situation of her own making that her usual means of defeating and escaping the circumstances won’t work. She’ll have to come up with better. Failing that, she’ll fail… and may learn from that. If she somehow finds the strength or the way not to be a cheap amateur cock-knocker about it.

    The ball’s in Werjimond’s court. Let’s see how she spins it.
