Tad, while we are making analogies:

C comes into the sandbox
T and R are busy building their castles
"I think" says T to R, "there is someone else in our presence"
"Who do you think?" Asks R, adding to the sand heap?

T says something to the effect: her sandbox is not in this
playground; why is she wanting to have fun here?

Is C paranoid or was it coincidental that in an "off line"
discussion with T she said that she followed Christ and that his "kingdom
was not of this world".

I don't have the direct quote in front of me, Tad, but it went
something like this:

"There are priests coming into our level whose kingdom is not of this world who are
sneaking in to have their fun?" What is a 'paranoid' girl to think?
