Because I try to share the results of my mystical philosophical researches with fellow students, nobody is entitled to sneer that I set myself up as a pretended little saviour. I have not yet so lost all sense of humour as to call my activity a redemptive one. On the contrary, I must confess to getting a little fun out of it. I leave to others the solemn illusion that they can change mankind overnight or even by next Wednesday. I have to do something on this planet, anyway, and writing being about the only activity I seem to be fit for at all, I might as well write about the things which interest me and a few like-minded people, as write about the places, the people, and the goods which so many publishers, governments, and advertising organizations have unsuccessfully tried with fat fees to cajole me into doing.
