“The mask of self-deception was not longer a mask for me, it was a part of me. Night lifted it, laying bare the stifled truth below; but there was no one to see except myself, and when day broke the mask fell back again of its own accord.”
Robert W. Chambers, The King in Yellow

Through all time and beyond reason exists the city.
