“The secret to success is to create confusion. Therefore if l write something that confuses the reader – do not attack it or question it – leave it be. Do not feel the need to comment or try to understand it if you do not understand it already. To understand my confusion is like trying to tell me you know what it is l am thinking. It is you who may be confused by my written word, only you. For l am not confused – l wrote it and l was not confused at the time, only you were.”
This was a response to someone who wrote to me a few years ago, who was trying to get into my head, but said they couldn’t because l confused them.
“Don’t be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused. Anything is possible. Stay open, forever, so open it hurts, and then open up some more, until the day you die, world without end, amen.”
