Your paranoia: Being told to keep it to yourself. But do me (and yourself) a favor, and keep it to yourself. It’s not anyone else’s business if you have an invisible Friend. My paranoia: Your subjective “value in the eye of the beholder” could really permit you to do anything. It did with Ahmed Ressam. Or cite “freedom of expression” and have done with pretending that there is anything out there for us to consider.
There is a cure for both kinds of paranoia - more lunches with Pinot Noir and the entree of choice. I can keep it to myself, and you will eventually see that my subjective “value in the eye of the beholder” does not permit me to do just anything.
