Niven's defense - I do go to the Raves here in Halifax. In my younger days -
those mind 'altering' drugs do indeed take you to a different level. Much like
the 60's I am sure with places like Woodstock. Raves induce several levels of
visual plains heightened by lazers; pulsing rhythums and you can sense in the
room when everyone is affected by the 'trance' affect. But; I have found when

things I could vision and see in my mind or try to describe to my friends. In
sincerity and self-belief; I saw these things; but they all aclaimed not

never be driven out of the blood".
Our genes make us what we are. The nature/nurture argument has always
but I know, at a level far beneath the foundations of reasons
and experience, that we
Sinclairs have always had a special role to play
in the affairs of our fellow men. Many
have performed this role -
others, for fear of failure, have opted out because they haven't
(and, therefore, haven't released) the true talents which lie within them.
