Fractions of the Soul invites the reader to eavesdrop on the wisdom communicated within the boundaries of the sacred master-apprentice relationship. The first oration begins in a nightclub after the master, sensing his inevitable death, directs his student’s attention to a couple engaged in a seemingly mundane mating ritual. This scene, the teacher muses, is the story of Adam and Eve retold with different characters playing the part and more is at work here than what first meets the eye. Topics explored between the whetstone and his blade range from identifying flaws in perception, feminine manipulation techniques, unavoidable loneliness and solitude, and the nature of his love for her. Offering his unique understanding and interpretation of the world to his student, his wisdom imbued with his passion, demonstrates his secret love for her in an attempt to reaffirm life before death. He desires to pass on his life’s work to her in order that she move closer to heaven after allowing him to run her blade, her spirit, across the whetstone of his passion.
