man — well, there we have it.  man.  manipulation.

it is the way that one is supposed to create the reality in which one lives.

a writer is a manipulator of words to most closely communicate a thought, but its manipulation is not over once these words are put down to be read.  the manipulation of the reader of the same words, giving a manipulated voice to the author’s story is something that every writer must consider, but it is not necessary for A Story to be told.

so, unless you are The Manipulator how do you know what anything means?
