[Comic for Monday, January 5, 2015]


[[Socrates and Fred continue their discussion in the small room where Fred is isolating himself]]
Socrates: Fred, I understand how much this must be affecting you...
Fred: Do you? REALLY?

Fred: Everything I have ever known about myself is apparently a LIE! My origins, my life on earth... How could you POSSIBLY know how that feels?
[[Socrates is at a loss for words]]

Fred: I've spent my entire life as I know it trying to understand what I am. From that first PBS special on slime molds, I've had to guess about where I came from. NONE of that was real.

Socrates: [raising two "arms" enthusiastically] That's right! You're part of something greater!
Fred: Only if "greater" means an invasion force poised to conquer the only home I've ever known!
