I knowingly left you under the impression that you've managed to infringe me. It helped me escape sooner. The truth is, it would be a delusional overstatement of your power to claim that you had anything more than a physical hold of me. It's obvious the weaker submits to the stronger, and when in my position, you will do the same, because there exist plenty of people stronger than you.

I don't think the settlement is surprising nor upsetting, and likewise, it would be just as delusional to wish for people to stop striving for superiority as it is delusional to think you can infringe their perception of their own superiority.

All I really have to say is that I'm no better than you. I stand leveled with you. We're both humans.

Physically, we're just as frail.

Mentally, we're just as indestructible.
