|2 Like go see Harry in ajail,
3 Or testify at his btrial,
4 Especially the follower who managed to grab Harry's bag of white stuff on his way out to the car,
5 Which lasted for weeks,
6 All through the arraignment chearing,
7 And the dtrial,
8 And the esentencing,
9 fAnd the day they carted Harry off to prison,
10 For life.
CHAPTER 701 But probably not all the followers felt bad about it afterwards,
2 Although some of them did,
3 Because some of them really did kind of like Harry,
4 gAnd thought that maybe they had let him down or something,
5 Until they remembered some things Harry had said on the Learjet one night,
6 During a weekend away from Philadelphia,
7 On the way to Harry's place in Malibu.
8 It was while they were flying along at thirty-some thousand feet that Harry said, No one has ever really asked me how you're supposed to live without thinking about anything at all;
9 Does that strike any of you as strange?
10 Then one of the followers said, yes, it did seem strange now that Harry had mentioned it,
11 And funny he hadn't thought of it before himself.
||12 Thereupon Harry poured himself another three fingers of hJack Daniel's,
13 And began to talk, saying,
14 I know that it seems like a iparadox,
15 But it is much jsimpler than a paradox,
16 Like most things.
17 kTruly, people will never think that they have stopped thinking,
18 lBecause how can you see the darkness by shining a light on darkness?
19 In truth, they will stop thinking without ever knowing that they have done so,
20 And they will be better off.
21 mAnd from their point of view, they will think that they are thinking,
22 And they will volunteer the nopinions they have arrived at from their thinking,
23 And when people nod in agreement, they will say, "What a good thinker am I, that so many people nod in agreement with me,"
24 oAnd they will never think about how they nod in unthinking agreement with the opinions expressed by other people,
25 pWho also think they are thinking,
26 And everybody will be better off.
CHAPTER 711 And why will they be better off?
2 qBecause they will have truly stopped thinking about anything at all,
3 rExcept their own personal desires,
