The fiery man enjoyed rejecting wisdom. Belief, science, and norms, he turned from proudly. Then Truth leapt up and bound him with a rope.
“I won’t let go until you look me in the eye,” it said. The man twisted and cursed, but Truth held its grip.
Hard-pressed, the man could no longer rail, so he faced Truth directly.
“Now you understand?” Truth asked, face compassionate.
“I do,” the man said, his eyes gaining focus. “I was reckless. Now I see your worth.”
The rope eased. The man realized that Truth had set him free. And he proved so.
