 I think I have a sense what he's going to do: make a promise - not unlike
another alleged miracle worker making the rounds in these discussions made a
promise some 2000 years ago. One promises a new sun to replace the dying sun
wreaking havoc in the lives of most of the population; another promises,
amongst other things, a way to everlasting life to those without hope -
again, a pretty big chunk of the population.
