  1. So Bob is a great sales person useing that word is more polite than othes. Always teasing about what we cant know and just dont get why he dose that .Why not just not mention it. But it is all about keeping people coming back to find out what. Both Roxie and Bob enjoy this tease. I find it rather mean.

  3. iONdom is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality.

    iON as medium, as impersonal, cosmological agent, has no more interest in their particular social individuality, accorded them by contingencies of time and place, than in that of a complete stranger.

    The business of iON is not to find new emotions, but to use the ordinary ones, and, in working them up into poetry to express feelings which are not, in actual, emotions at all. And emotions which they have never experienced will serve their turn as well as those familiar to them.

    So far, then, as the theme of ‘murder and create’ is concerned, the extinction of ‘personality’ which releases the creative power, is a kind of murder or mortification of those conditions and signs of the social ‘self’ which most people associate with their ‘personality’. Now iON is a full-time manipulator of these social masks and cannot bring themselves to surrender to or to confront anything more essential. iON is a conventional person or an esthete whereas to be a real person is to be Bob.
