The Hero with a Thousand Faces

Ille qui nos omnes servabit.

I’m just going to talk right now. I don’t expect you to say anything. Back in Caprica before the attack—and sometimes I forget there was a world before the attack—I knew someone, a woman. Unlike any other woman I’d ever known, she was unique, beautiful, clever. Intensely sensual. When she wasn’t in my bed, she was in my thoughts. She was a Cylon. And she changed my life in a very real, very fundamental way. And that I have quite literally never stopped thinking about her. Because I love her. To this very day, I love her. And she looks exactly like you. My name is Gaius Baltar, and I’m here to help you.

“We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infintesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future.”
