I was a Solitary Wiccan for 6 years and this book speaks the truth. I almost went insane until I had a spiritual experience with Jesus Christ. All those saying they do not worship Satan do not realize that they are... I was like them. God has forgiven me and he saved me from killing myself.

One little thing - doesn't the story allude to the mother also being artifical a la Stepford wives? After David talks to Teddy about what is real "Nobody knows what "real" really means" says Teddy David then plucks an artificial rose that has a softness and beauty that reminds him of Mummy. Unknown, Just what are you referring to? Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

The mother vs David because the mother knows that David is not real but David does not know that he is a robot, even though he acts kind of.
