Overview

The two entities in our society that I believe are taken for granted are our ALTER EG0, -- Another aspect of oneself -- and our belief in KARMA -- The law of cause and effect that regulating one's future life.

One thing that remains resolute concerning the ALTER EGO, which I believe is universally misunderstood, is that people should never accept what it relates to them as gospel; an axiom well respected throughout the ages. Even during the era of the Mythical Greek gods, the god Athlios warned that the mortals who believed in the righteousness of their ALTER EGO, and constantly spoke with it and sought its advice, should be mindful that it's not always a trusted friend, but, through unforeseen circumstances, may have become a mortal enemy.

The other entity that I believe is also misunderstood is the Universal Energy called KARMA. But what is KARMA exactly, and how does it affect our lives? The best western authorities who have attempted to interpret what it is, and tried to explain it, have practically given up in despair. In its more literal interpretation, however, it's the cause and effect of any act regulating one's future life and its inevitable retribution; that everything one does, each separate deed of one's life, weighed along with every other deed, determines man's destiny.

However, one must keep in mind that when cogitating about Karma that there is no judge and no judgment, no punishment, no repentance or amends, no remission of sins by divine clemency...that it's just the inexorable casual nexus of the Eternal Universe itself ; that KARMA, simply put, is a Brahmanic IDEA developed by the Buddhists.

The situation that confronts our protagonists in the story that follows is their hapless association with their ALTER EGO and their KARMA. The alter ego that inveigles them into a life of crime, and Karma that makes them pay for it.

CHAPTER ONE:

Dr. Sidney Freud, Psychiatrist,
3015 S. Greenfield Road, Unit #10, Mesa, Arizona

All of Dr. Sidney Freud's offices were ostentatious in design except for the room where he treated his patients. That compartment appeared as if it had been completely ignored: There were no windows in the place; the walls were of a lavender color with no paintings on them; the lighting was indirect and subdued, and there were only three pieces of furniture in the room: a captain's armchair, a small, narrow table alongside it, and a studio couch. The doctor felt that its decor was perfect for there was nothing in the place to distract his patients, and, from experience, he knew it was where they could relax and get the most out of their treatment.

Mrs. Edith Rabinowitz, an attractive, wealthy, anomalistic woman, and one of Dr. Freud's most vainglorious patients, was lying on the studio couch in the 'Lavender Room’ bemoaning her fate to the psychiatrist with whom she has had a professional love/hate relationship for years. However, during their relatedness, the doctor, feeling that he had not been able to successfully restore her neurosis to a healthy condition, often suggested that she seek another psychiatrist's shoulder to cry on, offering to give her the names of several of his colleagues that he believed could better assist her in finding a solution to the problem she was having. But Mrs. Rabinowitz refused to leave him; saying that he was the only psychiatrist in the world who understood her well enough to cope with her despondent situation. Nonetheless, that was not the only reason that she militated against leaving him, the other was his appearance for he resembled, almost to the nth degree, her beloved son who had been killed in an unfathomable bank robbery.

"I just can't go on like this, Doctor," Mrs. Rabinowitz said. "I tell you all Marvin thinks about is sex, and it's driving me crazy."

"I understand how you feel, Mrs. Rabinowitz," Dr Freud said, "but if all he does is think about it…1 don't understand why it should bother you...unless you're concerned that he doesn't put his thoughts into action."

"You know better than that, doctor, so stop trying to be facetious. I tell you he not only thinks about sex all the time but acts on it every time he does."

"Mrs. Rabinowitz you've been complaining about your sex life with your husband, Marvin, for years now, -- almost from our very first session together, and as I've repeatedly told you, your complaints are groundless; they have no merit, none whatsoever. In fact, from what you've said to me over the years, your sex life is to be envied. However, with that assessment aside, have you ever spurned Marvin's advances? Have you ever said no to him? Told him loud and clear that you won't have sex with him any longer?"

"No. Of course not.”
