This is a scenario we all faced once atleast. Either you were the sender or the reciever.

People who are fast, people who sing well, people who are book smart, people who are good at talking, and people who can use psychic powers… You can’t put one over the other.

Migi’s truth just makes your skin crawl. But we can’t cease to be who we really are eh?

“Maybe nothing in this world happens by accident. As everything happens for a reason, our destiny slowly takes form.”

“When some things contradict each other, you should look at the opposite side of everything. And when the meanings behind the seemingly unnatural actions are made clear, a completely different answer might be reached… Justice can become evil. Reality can become an illusion. Meaning can be found in something that appears meaningless. Think. And find the answer for yourselves. A human ceases to be once he or she stops thinking.”
