My original name is Carl Smith but my friends call me CS. I’m 23 years old, I’m from Virginia and during the last years I have been traveling around the 13 colonies to fight the British soldiers. The reason why I joined the American Army over 6 Months ago is because I’m single, and I also was unable to get a job that I wanted was unable to receive my diploma, because I was unable to afford the stamp to be stamped on the certificate. I also joined the army because I was tired of all these decisions the British government took for us because we had no authority for example I was tired of the Kings’ unacceptable taxes over some items for example the stamp act. Soldiers are not professionals in modern English, for they might well first enter a military school or buy a commission... The stamp act was a tax put it to every official document, the list included Contracts, newspapers, and playing cards. Important people to colonies had to purchase these stamps.

In consequence I decided to join the American Army, I have participated in The Stamp Act, The Boston Massacre, The army of

Perry Smith is perhaps the nicest, most gentle-hearted man I've ever met in my life. If he and I were to have met under different circumstances, I would never have hazarded a guess that this kind man could be a cold-blooded killer. He's such a gentle man that it startles me to think that a man such as he would ever so much as touch a hair on a human head.

Built up emotions of hatred and rejection have been bottled up inside of him for so long, that he sometimes explodes with little cause. Although he appears soft on the outside, it is the build up of emotion

The debate in the academic study of mysticism between Steven Katz and Robert Forman primarily refers to the origins and essence of mystical experiences. Katz’s argues that, “There are NO pure (i.e. unmediated) mystical experiences” (Katz, 26). Additionally, Katz articulates the problem of interpreting and verifying mystical experiences, thus alluding to the issue of whether or not mystical experiences can be classified. Comparatively, Robert Forman argues for the existence of what he refers to as Pure Consciousness Events (PCEs), whereby mystical experiences extend beyond language and culture. Each argument has its merits, however, I contend that Forman’s argument is the most articulate and accurate.
