Looks like I would be turning to page 72.

So much for a comforting illusion. My copy of this book is missing page 72. Who stole my ticket to oblivion?

Someone elsewhere pointed out this news item:

This seems relevant to this subject, but I'm still working on why it is.

Maybe it's just my mistrusting nature, but the first thing that came to my mind was what is this old man trying to get? I would turn to page 75 because I wouldn't assume that the old man was being honest. I would ask myself what was his motive for telling me this statement. Since I was a little boy I have been intrigued by the discrepancy between what people say and what they really mean. Also, what is the writer getting at?

Do puppets have motives aside from the wiggling of their strings? Does the mind of the puppet master have motives other than "wiggling" of it's neurons?

This is one of those books you hope have hundreds of pages, even if they all cycle back to Page 72. What would you call it? I might go with The Grand Illusions of Choice.

Who knows? Maybe you turn to page 72 and see the old man hit directly in the back of his skull with a pebble-sized meteor. Then your choices could be something along the lines of:

Turn to page 83 to move along in your journey

Turn to page 79 to wash the blood off of your face.
