In this visit to Don Everts's head, you'll meet The Fingerless Lady. She's rather attractive, very popular and always smiling, giving everybody the thumbs-up. She loves to tell her inspiring story of climbing a mountain, a beautiful mountain that might look different from different sides but is still all the same mountain. But despite her warm affirmations and sugary voice, she's also a little creepy, with stubs where her fingers used to be. . . .

The Fingerless Lady has many friends, of course, like Conflict Is Always Horrible and All Religions Are The Same. But other ideas like Existentialism and Tragedy have some sharp questions for her. Can her philosophy withstand the scrutiny?
