I am the master of the world.
That is to say, the magic I perform is beyond imagination.
This is said in reference to my master at the temple in the old days of the Japanese samurai. He’s one of the very few people whose name has ever come up in the world over the ages. At that time there was a large-scale ritual, in which he would take his followers into an imaginary world that had been created by his own hand. There would be beautiful flowers and all kinds of animals who would give him special food. He’d talk with them, listen to their stories, and then, with his own fingers, he would carve them up.

In one instance, I was riding at a high rate of speed on a horse and ran full-tilt down a dirt road. Suddenly the ground was covered in red, blue, white, and black. It was not a natural phenomenon, just because I was driving along that stretch of road. It was such intense colors I thought I might have been hallucinating. It was only when I reached a very steep drop
