I might have seemed a bit like a whale that leaps to the surface of the water disturbing it momentarily with a tiny jet of spray and lets it be believed, or pretends to believe, or wants to believe, or himself does in fact indeed believe, that down in the depths where no one sees him anymore, where he is no longer witnessed nor controlled by anyone, he follows a more profound, coherent and reasoned trajectory.
