A lot rides on the validity and reliability of introspection. For starters, one’s self-image and self-respect depend on the view from inside-in, not to mention the view from inside out. And it goes on from there. Knowing who’s speaking when it’s your mouth doing the talking is key to holding onto one’s grip on reality. It’s confusing from the outset and it just gets more complex and convoluted from there.

It’s only after being trapped in the current circling the drain that the gravity of the situation becomes clear. The options are limited: grab the slippery rope and climb out of the sink or hope for a break in the p-trap. I’d opt for the rope; worst case, if it doesn’t work, it can become a noose.
