A hastily assembled parable

After class, the students would gather at the professor’s apartment. They loved to hear him talk about these amazing ideas of his. After all, he had written all those books, and to be able to be that close to him, to hear him speak, was always a highlight of the week.

“It’s all about the mind! The flesh is nothing.” he was saying. “Develop your mind, transcend the body, and you will succeed at whatever you do.” The students all smiled and nudged each other, enthralled.

The professor paused. “You’ll have to excuse me. I have to use the bathroom.” He stepped out of the room.

“Isn’t he the best?” one of the students whispered to another.
