mara is the omega to the alpha. Agent Smith to Neo. Mr. Nobody the busybody. The serpent seducing you to eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The tail of the Ouroboros that has to be consumed to complete the circle of life.
mara is always at hand when you need him and when you don’t. He has handy easy-to-understand low negentropic answers to every question you have thought of, and to those you haven’t yet thought of.
He speaks of random walks in the dance of rationality. Of destinations the bridges to where have long been burnt.
Your refusal to commune with him is what he wants. Or maybe not. Call him in for a tete-e-tete and ask Ananda to make some tea.
