On Pedestals

What is the difference between fact and opinion? The only truth to truth is belief, and belief is born from the seduction of authority.

Or is it fear of authority, of authorship - the claim to creation and instillment? Is seduction successful only because one fears what happens if passed up, no matter the flattery or attire or setting involved?

The inner mechanics of attraction might include making sure that everything else in your subject's life add up to less than what you bring to the metaphorical table - and is it round or long? It is not a feast, nor a buffet, but a prix fixe last supper ad nauseam that never ends until you do; and past then, as tableaux media.
