Update for those who are interested: I received a very nice letter from the people I was negotiating with, stating that the man described above had
been under tremendous pressure due to the death of his daughter recently and some simultaneous financial trouble. So, perhaps the cause is within the
range of normal human experience rather than evil mind rays, cosmic radiation, or supernatural causes.
Even so, I think the tale is still indicative of something wrong in society. When people are not allowed to express their emotions properly, these
things happen. There is a tension between our natural human lives and feelings on one hand, and the stresses and strains of business on the other. I
feel a lot of sympathy for this person, and all like him. Some thrive in the modern world, but most do not. We all have our coping mecanisms, some
healthier than others. Clearly this man needed a little more balance in his life. Time to greive properly and a humane society that would provide more
stablility would be a start to help him and others like him.
Hopefully someday society will come to a better understanding of these kinds of stresses, and the ways to deal with them.
Thanks for reading.
