"Then again the great artist, besides aiming at perfection of form searches for truth. He never, in any of his works, allows what he knows to be false to remain. If he believes a work to be false in any part he will change, destroy or abandon it. The longer he works the more exacting he becomes in the demand for what is true. This insistence upon truth is of great importance today. The invention of atomic weapons is a far less sinister threat to human happiness than the discovery of the power of untruth. The realisation this it is possible to influence millions by the deliberately told lie is one of the most dreadful threats that civilisation has ever been compelled to face. The atomic bomb in itself is harmless. But the untruth, or the deliberately fostered ignorance, that inflame a nation may, at any moment, cause it to be dropped. Only truth can combat falsehood, and the artist is a champion of truth".
"Without truth there can be no freedom. Art honors the spirit of man, his intellect and his feelings, and would have them free".

Still following Mind Games right through to what must be a third of the way into the first third by now.... Will all the parts be this long? Will the next two 'books' of the first novel each be as long the first? Will the next two novels in the trilogy be even longer? Will it stay a trilogy? Can our hero possibly survive the sheer ennui, should it all really go on that long? Could he survive the adrenalised paranoia if his story started moving faster again? You won't find out till I've finished Part Thirty everything stops Four tea! I'm having a little difficulty finding a proper tea house...
