Arthur's Craziness Recipe

  1. Learn French and Spanish (optional)
  2. Use hallucinogens (also optional)
  3. Take Borges' collected fiction and Le Petit Prince, or translations if necessary, to a remote Moroccan oasis village (Algeria or Libya will also do).
  4. Read the Borges in total seclusion.
  5. Take date syrup and water into the desert, and read Le Petit Prince over the course of three days.
  6. You have now realized that you probably don't really exist, consider this your subconscious' first hint.
