Mozart Is Dead. Papageno Isn't.

I heard him last night.

Think about that, my fellow memory-binding bipeds. An imaginary creation, over 200 years old, still lives.

We are richer than emperors. If given a chance to trade places with Hadrian or Trajan, I'd refuse without hesitation, because I'd need to give up The Magic Flute. And other things.

It's a great life if you don't weaken. Or destroy the world.

So let's not do that.
