I have so far not contributed to this tread, it has been unpleasant in my opinion. However, I was struck by the resemblance of the above passages to the writing of Franz Kafka.

Viz. while from an objective viewpoint it seems to refer to a abnormal world, in a strange way it does resonate strongly at other levels.

Mr. Corley, have you tried to write for publication? I honestly think it might lead somewhere positive.

Dick Jackson (serious for a change and expecting to get beaten up)
