"On either shore the gibbons' chatter sounds without pause, while my light
boat skims past thousands of crags."1 (Loud applause) The evil has exhausted
its tricks, and the Dafa disciples have matured through the tempering. We're not afraid of any other
tricks it might use. The persecution of Dafa and Dafa disciples has now lasted for over three years,
and in no time it'll be four years. During this period a lot of our Dafa disciples, especially the
Dafa disciples in Mainland China, have been subjected to evil persecution that's just unprecedented.
In the midst of the terror that was created by lies and deceit, they've held up under the
persecution, which is just evil to the extreme, and they've made it through these three years.
That's outstanding! Ordinary people couldn't do that.
You know, in Mainland China if they want to destroy someone's name, or if they
want to suppress someone, and this includes even the country's Chairman, it doesn't take more than
three days and that person's a goner. Of course, it's not that I'm saying Dafa disciples' physical
bodies are made of diamond or steel. Rather, the reason is, the evil people have absolutely no way
to understand cultivators, and all the tricks they've acquired from history and that they're using
to attack people can only work on ordinary people. They're totally useless on cultivators--cultivators
who let go of worldly attachments.
Of course, while they're cultivating a lot of students still have everyday
people's thinking to some degree or other, and there are folks who've always been slack about
studying the Fa, as well as a lot of new students who've just started to practice. So when suddenly
faced with this evil terror, an attack and suppression that's just overwhelming, it really is
terrifying for the students who have strong human thoughts. Those human thoughts made these students
confused for a moment and they couldn't tell what was really going on. But after a period of time,
after they calmly thought things over for themselves--"Why am I studying Dafa?" "Now,
is Falun Dafa really a good thing?" "Just what kind of person is Li Hongzhi really?"--a
lot of people thought these things over in a calm way and with a level head. And the result of that
calm thinking was, as they all became even clearer, "What we're studying is an upright
practice, and there's nothing wrong with the Zhen, Shan, Ren that we're cultivating." And
you've been able to see better and better that all the methods the evil people have used in this
persecution are lies and slander, and see that they've used all the evil methods out there, that not
a single thing is true, and that they're all just schemes.
So what was the goal of this evil persecution? Was it to protect the regime? Not
at all, really. Saying that Falun Gong poses a threat to China's regime is just a huge lie that's
spread by the evil. A lot of people have asked me, and a lot of people have asked my disciples this
too: what's the true reason for this persecution? Just a buffoon's jealousy. Since it has power it's
able to do something like this. That might sound pretty ridiculous, or maybe hard to believe--how could
something like this happen to mankind, right? But it really has happened. This persecution has
happened, as absurd as it may be, due to that buffoon being driven by its twisted jealousy. That's
exactly the reason. That's the real cause we see here in human society.
But, from another perspective, human beings don't actually have the ability to do
anything significant. What usually happens is that a person's bad thoughts correlate with evil
beings in other dimensions, and then those evil beings capitalize on his bad thoughts to go and do
bad things, and this way those evil beings achieve their goals and his bad thoughts' desires are
satisfied. And where do people's thoughts really come from? Scientists have now realized that man's
brain isn't really where his thoughts originate. So where do people's thoughts come from? Everybody
thinks they come from what they've learned in the ordinary society and from their own reasoning. But
that's not how it works. When an everyday person has a thought about doing something, his brain
actually hasn't gone through some long process of reflection. A lot of things just instantly pop up,
and a lot of words just roll right out off the tongue. So then just where exactly do those thoughts
come from? We cultivators all know that there are actually connections between a person's mind and
factors in a lot of different dimensions, and when it comes to major things, man is just doing
things under the control of other beings. He's just acting things out here in the human world,
that's all. The surface of the human body, the postnatally formed body, is really nothing.
So while we're on the subject of the human body, I've told you some things about
it in a few select settings. But I haven't talked about it in a larger forum. The reason is, the Fa
I'm teaching today is the Fa of the cosmos, Fa-rectification is rectifying the cosmos, and Dafa
disciples co-exist with the Fa-rectification, so I can't talk about those specific things or
particular situations in society that are too specific, or too low-level, or that are only in the
Three Realms. Those things can't be written into the Fa of the cosmos. That's why I haven't talked
about them. I've only talked about those things in a few select settings.
Of course, a human being has three souls, seven spirits, and so on, and he's also
got a human True Skin, along with the two factors provided postnatally by his parents, and these
factors that make up a human being exist in dimensions that the human eye can't see. Some of the
matter that he gets from human food makes his human body gradually enlarge on the surface. People
call that "growth." This human body is formed postnatally in the material dimension of
everyday people, and late in his years it will age and die out, and it'll decompose back into
matter. So in other words, an everyday person's postnatally formed body is just a vessel, and the
only thing that can exist in the brain of a human body, those so-called thoughts, are actually the
surface concepts that have formed in his head with the experiences he's accumulated in the human
growth process. That's really just what the human body's thoughts are. But concepts alone don't
constitute rationality. They're incomplete, they aren't organized, and they're incoherent. That's
why when a person lets his main consciousness go he'll turn irrational--one minute he'll be talking
about one thing, the next minute it's something else, he'll jump to this, he'll jump to that, and
it's all over the place. He doesn't know what he's saying or what point he's trying to make. That
happens because he doesn't have a main theme that ties it all together, and it's those things that
he's formed postnatally that are manifesting. Also, when a person lets go of his main consciousness
it's not just those concepts that can interfere with him, but any external messages, and that's why
people will say he's got mental problems.
So, this means that in this persecution what's manifest here in the human world
is that the malicious bad person's jealousy of Dafa is being manipulated by evil beings in other
dimensions who are using that buffoon's evilness to create such a huge, unparalleled, shameful event--the
evil, ludicrous persecution of Dafa students. All of the excuses it's used to suppress us are
fabricated lies. The society's propaganda machines are all directed by it through its power, and
they've spread a lot of huge and outrageous lies among the Chinese people and the rest of the
world's people. Although this has been evil, Dafa disciples have matured through the tempering and
have come to see all of this for what it is, so now they're becoming more and more clearheaded, and
more and more rational. Initially, some students hadn't gotten rid of some of their human
attachments yet, and that resulted in them not being able to recognize the true nature of the evil,
and because their proper, righteous thoughts weren't adequate they were driven by their attachments
and thus developed some human thoughts, and they also revealed the side of them that lacked a sober
rationality. But through this persecution Dafa disciples have come to understand the solemn nature
of cultivation, and this has allowed you to really see the evil for what it is, and eventually you
did well. This especially goes for the Dafa disciples in Mainland China, who've become more and more
mature through this tempering. Now when these Dafa disciples are arrested in the evil's persecution,
it's not easy anymore like it was back then to do that absurd, so-called "transformation"
of them. What "repentance"? What "transformation"? "Transform" into
what? They're all being good people, they're being the best people in the world--they're good people
that surpass everyday people--so what are you trying to "transform" them into? What
"transformation"? The evil has really done all sorts of revolting things. Like I said a
long time ago: whoever attacks goodness is definitely evil.
So all things aside, in this persecution the evil beings have the worst goal,
while the old forces that have manipulated the evil also have their goal. And what's their goal? It
appears that they're using those evil beings to do evil to Dafa disciples and Dafa in order to have
Dafa disciples be supposedly "matured through tempering" and to weed out those who don't
deserve to be Dafa disciples, and along with this to use the sins that the evil beings have
committed against Dafa disciples to destroy them and purify the cosmos. That's what the old forces
have arranged. Sounds so noble, doesn't it? But it's not! Their real goal is to get what they
want out of this. This isn't cultivation with a small reach--it's the cosmos going through Fa-rectification.
Everything is just too trivial to even mention next to the Fa-rectification--nothing begins to
compare. You can't compare things that occur in personal cultivation with the Fa-rectification. It
doesn't matter how high an old-force being's level is, if it can't place itself properly in this
balance of things it's in danger and will be weeded out during the cosmos's Fa-rectification; all
the countless beings who've been knocked down because of this were from very high levels. What's
most horrifying is that while they're participating in this, the layers upon layers of old forces
have arranged at each level the elimination of the old forces that are one level right below them.
They did that because they knew that the beings that have directly done bad things can't possibly
pay for the sins committed against Dafa during this evil drama.
The truth becomes higher with each successive level, and when you look at things
from a higher level, what's arranged at the next level down to supposedly "help Dafa" is a
sin, so what they intend is to have even those who are doing the manipulating be weeded out in the
Fa-rectification, since they've sinned against Dafa, too, when measured with higher truths. But they
don't know that those at a level higher than them will look at them the same way and knock them
down, too, in the same way. So, the old forces are successively eliminating the old forces, at each
level eliminating the ones at the level right below them. But that's not what I want. None of the
beings are worthy of participating in this. Yet they have participated, and with their own motives.
But I've taught them the Fa constantly and told them about these things. I treat all the different
sentient beings the same. Of course, these old forces are attached to what they want to do and to
what they want to achieve, they're doing these things callously and won't change their ways no
matter what, and they're doing these things while being manipulated by the beings above them. So
ultimately, the entire old forces are weeding themselves out until they're no more.
What I wanted was to have no sentient being interfere with the Fa-rectification,
or even participate in it. With the Fa-rectification, when it proceeds from the most basic point,
from the lowest point, and goes all the way up, for all beings, no matter how bad you are or how
much you may have sinned in history, I don't hold your past faults against you, and I purify you
from the most microcosmic point to the surface of your being, and this even includes any thoughts a
being may have. I rectify from the bottom up, all the way through. That would have been the best
kind of benevolent solution, and not a single being would have fallen, not a single being would have
sinned against Dafa and this Fa-rectification. Wouldn't that have been wonderful? But no, they
insisted on doing this, and it's brought on this disaster in human society.
As Dafa disciples, we're against this persecution. And as your Master I don't
acknowledge this thing, and I don't acknowledge the whole arrangement the old forces made. This has
made the old forces go even more mad. So sometimes it's not just the evil beings who are taking part
in the persecution, but even some high-level beings of the old forces. During the Fa-rectification
all beings are choosing for themselves what path they will go down. What every being is truly faced
with is choosing his own future.
As you've seen, they've exhausted all of their tricks in the persecution, and
Dafa disciples have matured through the tempering. Whether it's inside or outside China, all the
same, although there are still a lot of beings who've been misled by the evil's propaganda, overall,
in other dimensions the strength of the evil and the strength of the righteous are no longer in
balance. The strength of the righteous has tipped the scales in its favor as far as they go. Those
evil beings can't hold up now. The wicked people in the world might seem so evil, but that's
actually just arranged by the old forces. I've said before that the evil won't stop persecuting even
right up until the very end. Even if it's going to end tomorrow, today that evil will still do evil
just the same. That's the way things are in the cosmos before the Fa-rectification is done
rectifying it. Without going through Fa-rectification it won't become good on its own--how could it
turn good without Fa-rectification? Poison is just poisonous, and if you want it to stop being
poisonous it can't do that. So when you look at it that way, we shouldn't have any fantasies about
the evil forces and those evil people who are persecuting Dafa.
A little while back a lot of students were thinking: "The CCP is going to hold its 16th Congress soon. If that head demon in China, that wretch
of the earth, steps down, then won't our Dafa's good name be restored? Who'd want to inherit that
burden, and who'd be as stupid as it is?" That kind of thinking isn't wrong in the
ordinary society, but it's not right for a cultivator. With a Dafa like this, how could so many
magnificent future Gods, magnificent Dafa disciples, who've been forged through Dafa cultivation put
their hope in some ordinary person? Aren't we insulting ourselves? Could human beings control Gods?
But a lot of our Dafa disciples were thinking that way. It's not a big deal if one person thinks
that way, and it's not a big deal if two people think that way--that's just their personal
cultivation issue. But if everybody thinks that way, then what kind of situation will there be among
the larger group of Dafa disciples? It'll be a major disruption, a strong attachment, and that can't
be allowed. I saw it, and the old forces saw it, too. The old forces thought, "Wait a minute,
what's this?" So they made the outcome of the CCP's 16th
As I've said, everything that happens today in the ordinary society is the result
of Dafa disciples' thoughts. Even though the old forces do exist, if you don't have those thoughts
they can't do anything. When your righteous thoughts are strong enough the old forces can't do a
thing. If someone in ordinary society really did restore our Dafa's name, think about it, maybe
human beings will do this, but have you thought about this: how high would I have to position that
person? Isn't that right? You're cultivators, and all changes come from your cultivation and the Fa-rectification;
everything that you yourselves validate and enlighten to, and everything that you'll receive, all
this comes from what you have done on your path. Absolutely don't think about any favors the
old forces might do for us, or about how the ordinary society might help us. You are the ones
saving the ordinary people's society, and you are the ones saving sentient beings!
When you've been persecuted or been under pressure in the ordinary society, it's
hard to prevent your human thoughts from having an effect, so some ordinary people's thoughts might
surface, but don't think too much of it. Fa-rectification disciples, the persecution has already
come to this stage, and Dafa has already come to this stage in the Fa-rectification: what's there
for us to still be afraid of? Haven't you already seen your future very well? So when it comes to
those evil beings and their arrangements, as long as your righteous thoughts are strong enough you
can reject them, repel them, and make them helpless. But being among ordinary people and facing
these things, although you've had different takes on things, and there might even be more of us
who've had different understandings and who've displayed some human thoughts, it's not all that
surprising. That's because while you're improving yourself in cultivation, your path of validating
Dafa, of saving sentient beings, and of moving towards the final Consummation is going to be
a bumpy one. What's key is that you take every step well after you come to realize something.
As I've said, if no beings had persecuted Dafa they could all have a benevolent
solution. But I knew that if all beings in the cosmos were that good then there wouldn't be a need
for Fa-rectification. They were sure to surface, it was just a question of what form it would take.
So that created a test for our Dafa disciples. That's all. This is a kind of natural manifestation,
but, this type of arrangement by the old forces, this careful arrangement, this really systematic
arrangement that goes from top to bottom, that's a first-ever. And this massive tribulation is
really enormous. What you experience and perceive is just the manifestation in man's society, but
what I see is utterly shocking to even the beings of the greater cosmos. Maybe mankind can't
understand what I'm saying. But when mankind sees the display of the cosmos's planets going through
re-creation arrive at the surface of our Milky Way, then they'll believe everything. (Applause)
Like I just said, during the whole Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples have
done really well overall, and Dafa disciples have become more and more mature through the tempering.
While validating the Fa, no matter what form Dafa disciples use to save sentient beings, and no
matter how you contribute, or what methods you use, you are validating the Fa, and you are forging
ahead on the path of clarifying the facts. You're doing better and better, too, and you're becoming
more and more rational. And you're cooperating better and better with each other as Dafa disciples.
Maybe a lot of students have had the experience before, where our Dafa disciples have arguments when
they do something together, and they look pretty heated sometimes, and after your human thoughts
come out it even affects your grand task of validating the Fa. However, as your understandings of
the Fa have improved and your human thoughts have been whittled away, these things and these
manifestations have become less and less intense. So why do arguments happen? It's in fact exactly
because that little bit of your not-yet-removed stuff at your human surface is at work. But when
your righteous thoughts are strong enough it's powerless. You all know the Fa is good, that you
should safeguard the Fa, that you have to do certain things, and that you have to go save sentient
beings and validate the Fa, then when your righteous thoughts aren't up to par your human thoughts
get mixed in. Then this makes you agitated like an ordinary person gets, and some people even feel
like they've just got to insist on their own ideas, and this, combined with some other factors, has
resulted in some situations that shouldn't happen among Dafa disciples. You've done fairly well
recently, and that's because you are becoming more and more mature.
Actually, did you know that those Great Enlightened Beings have a lot of things
in the heavens that they too need to coordinate and discuss with each other? Buddha Sakyamuni said
that there are as many Tathagatas as there are grains of sand in the Ganges River. Or to put it
another way, of the Fa Kings in the heavens, the Buddha type of Gods alone are as many as the grains
of sand in the Ganges. And that's just a small number--what he talked about was just what he could
see from his realm. Then what about other Gods? Buddhas are only one type of God in the cosmos, and
they don't number that many. And, there are countless Gods of all different types, there are so many
of them that it's impossible to count them, there's an infinite number of beings. Now, if they were
to argue when they do something, that'd be big trouble, since every Enlightened Being has his own
set of truths that he has validated and enlightened to from the Fa-truths of the cosmos, and he's
formed a set of his own things with his understanding of the cosmos. For example, Buddha Sakyamuni's
own set of things is called "Precept, Concentration, Wisdom." So, since each Great
Enlightened Being and each being in the cosmos has his own set of understandings of the cosmos like
that, if they were to start arguing wouldn't that be disastrous? That kind of thing doesn't exist
where they are.
So what's their state of mind? It's tolerance, an extremely immense tolerance,
being able to accept other beings, and being able to truly think from other beings' perspectives.
This is something a lot of you haven't achieved yet in your cultivation, but you're gradually
catching on and achieving it. When another God proposes an idea, they aren't eager to reject it, and
they aren't eager to express their own ideas and they don't believe that their own ideas are good.
Instead, they look at what the end result of the other God's proposed approach will be. The paths
are different--everyone's path is different--and the truths that beings validate and enlighten to in
the Fa are different, too, but the results might very well be the same. That's why they look at the
results, and if the result of a God's idea can achieve the goal, if it can truly achieve it, then
all of them will go along with it. That's how Gods think. Also, if there's something lacking in it
they'll unconditionally and quietly supplement it to make things more complete and perfect. That's
how they handle things.
Dafa disciples, in your cultivation in the ordinary human world you all have
understood something clearly that's based on the Fa's principles, namely, not to be attached to the
"gain and loss" of ordinary people. So when things related to validating the Fa are
involved, there too you shouldn't insist on voicing "my ideas" or on having things done
"my way." It's not like only then can you establish mighty virtue in the cosmos. If you've
got a good idea, well, you came up with it, you're being responsible to the Fa, and it's not
important whether your idea is adopted or whether your approach is used. If another person's idea
can achieve the same effect and you aren't attached to your own idea and instead you go along with
his, then whether you've shared your approach or not, Gods will all see this and think, "Look,
he isn't attached, and he's able to be so tolerant and broadminded." What do Gods look at?
Isn't this what they look at? When you're attached to emphasizing your things you are too
caught up in it and the Gods watching above can't stand it. Even though you keep claiming it's for
the good of Dafa, and that "my approach is good" and can reach such and such goal--and
maybe that really is the case--still, we shouldn't have attachments that are too much like ordinary
people. If you can really do that, all the Gods will say, "This person is truly
remarkable." It's not like Gods see that your idea worked and then they raise your level.
Instead, they only raise your level when they see that your understanding of it has improved. This
is a truth in the Righteous Fa. If you're thinking, "I'll have XYZ happen to me if I've gained
such and such amount of merit," well, yes, that's how it works for an ordinary person, and it
might be what's looked at as far as certain facets of the cosmos's Fa-truths go or in a particular
situation. But true improvements come from letting go, not from gaining. (Loud applause)
We have a lot of students who've really been improving fast as they continue to
cultivate themselves. And as a whole you've especially done better and better in improving together,
and in cooperating with each other. Now it's a matter of how you can do even better and in a more
refined way the things that now need to be done. Since you're Dafa disciples, you shouldn't put your
hopes in so-called "natural" changes, external changes, changes in the ordinary society,
or in some favors that someone might do for us. You are Gods, and you are the future
rulers of different cosmoses, so who would you count on? All the beings are counting on you!
(Applause) That's truly how it is. The cosmos's reality will manifest in the near future, and
at that time whether we have done well or poorly will be set--however things went will be set. As
long as this affair hasn't ended there's still an opportunity. Each one of us is walking his own
path, and consummating his own Attainment Status. In the future the Dafa disciples will be able to
see whether they've done well on this path of validating the Fa and saving sentient beings. You'll
even see vividly the little things that happened somewhere during your process of Fa-rectification.
Of course, the evil and the bad beings can't see the future. The sentient beings that you've saved,
and those sentient beings who are able to realize what's going on as you clarify the facts, they too
will soon witness the magnificent scene of your Consummation. (Applause) And that will
definitely be open and dignified.
Of course, recently some things have happened to our Dafa disciples. There are a
lot of things Master can't really tell you about--especially when it's during that time. The reason
being, the old forces think that if I tell you, they'll have to make things even harder for you.
That's why I didn't tell you until now about even the issue of your cooperating with each other. I
talked about it because you've already started to do well with it, and now you're able to handle it
well, you've gradually realized it.
Some students say with their lips, "I reject the old forces'
arrangements." In key situations they can handle themselves quite well, but under normal
circumstances they're likely to ease up their righteous thoughts, and when their righteous thoughts
aren't adequate they're likely to have problems. Of course, I'm not talking about everyone. I'm
talking about an extremely small number of folks--there are very few of them. So why does that
happen? In history the old forces arranged many, many things, and they made extremely thorough and
intricate arrangements. And to make sure that nothing would go wrong with what they arranged they
did a practice run with the previous earth. Think about it--how could they not be attached to it?
Could they possibly let go of what they wanted to do? But even so, if our righteous thoughts are
very strong, then we're in line with a law in the cosmos, and this law holds in both the old cosmos
and the new one: a being's choice is up to him, even if he made some kind of vow in history. At
critical moments it's still up to him what he wants to do. And this goes for things that are
positive and negative--it's the case for both.
During the course of their cultivation in the past, a lot of disciples were
assigned by the old forces to come interfere with things or play a negative role. But, they rejected
that, they developed righteous thoughts through cultivating, they no longer want to do that, and
they've become true Dafa disciples. Some, however, have acted a bit poorly, and so they've been led
by the old forces and have caused a lot of unexpected things to happen. What I want to talk about
here isn't that group of people. What I'm going to talk about are some incidents that have happened
recently to our true Dafa disciples. Of course, those are isolated cases, but you all know about
them and you've been thinking about them. The truth is that some of you have reincarnated time and
time again over the course of history, and while you were in human society, lost in delusion, you
might very well have signed some kind of pact with the old forces, like for example, "During
the Fa-rectification I will do such and such or take such and such path on a certain day." At
that time, within the laws of the old Fa it seemed absolutely correct, so a few of you students have
signed that type of pact, and that's why from time to time some things happen among our Dafa
disciples. The goal behind those problems is this: the old forces think that some students believe
that once they cultivate Dafa they have nothing to worry about, "As long as I'm a Dafa disciple
I won't be in any kind of danger." So they saw this and thought: "We can't allow this.
Isn't this like getting some kind of insurance? Once they learn Dafa they're not worried about
anything. Isn't that a huge attachment in and of itself?" So those old forces caused trouble in
Dafa. That's how these things came about. But when they caused trouble why didn't Master's countless
Law Bodies and the countless righteous Gods who safeguard the Fa do anything about it? It's because
some of our Dafa disciples signed some sort of pact with the old forces back in history, and so the
old forces have latched onto this fact with a death grip and won't let go.
But it's not that you can't get rid of it. As I just said, even if sometime in
history you did sign some kind of pact, if today your righteous thoughts are very strong, you don't
recognize it, and you insist on not taking part in it, then you can in fact reject it. But this is a
bit hard for you to handle in a case like this. What's hard is that the old forces won't let you go
that easily, they'll try to take advantage of your gaps, and when you're just a little bit off
they'll seize the opportunity. So when your righteous thoughts are very strong they can't take
advantage of you, and this is because in Fa-rectification Dafa doesn't acknowledge the old forces'
arrangements, and I, as your Master, don't acknowledge them either. Of course, each one of our Dafa
disciples says that we don't recognize the old forces' arrangements, but that's not something you
just say--you have to follow the requirements of Dafa and the Fa-rectification. "I absolutely
will not acknowledge any of those things you arranged in the past, old forces. I don't even
acknowledge you." When your righteous thoughts are very strong you can purge it and you can
reject their arrangements. (Applause) And that's because we absolutely cannot acknowledge
How could the beings in the cosmos arrange their own futures? That's absolutely
not allowed. You'll become aware of this law in the future. How was the cosmos created? It was
created just by a Great Fa Enlightened Being's one thought. (Applause) The single thoughts of
the Great Enlightened Beings at different levels created cosmoses at different levels. Imagine if
after that one thought created the cosmos the beings inside it were to say, "Don't create me in
this way, you should create me in such and such way." Is it up to them? It's not. Those beings
are really insignificant in the eyes of that God whose one thought created them. But those Great
Enlightened Beings, those Gods who created the beings, they absolutely must meet the standard for a
God and meet the Fa's standard, and they have to have great mercy and compassion. So the cosmoses
they created are bound to be wonderful; the thoughts they produce are pure and wonderful. That's why
it's considered just extremely crucial that a being meet the standard for the cosmos's beings at
certain levels. So in other words, we can't acknowledge the arrangements that the old forces made
for us, no matter what they did, because they, too, are candidates for being saved, only they've
chosen to be weeded out. How could someone who's to be saved choose how he's saved? It's like he
falls into water and someone tries to save him, but he says: "You can't save me directly with
your hands. You have to save me with a boat that I like." How could that be?
Some of the things that happened recently were due to historic reasons. I didn't
