phreemessen:

Who could distinguish the truth among all those wraith-like forms, among all those shadowy notions which present themselves to us?  Who is able to see through all that pretense, all that delusion, all that nefariousness?  How could one possibly make sense of all that immeasurable chaos?  Who could remain standing in the midst of these wildly proliferating dangers?  Surely it’s just not possible?

Yes, it is possible!
