And when I finally found the Oracle, and asked him to advice me, he, without even looking at me, said this:
“There are three rules of advice that you should know:
One: Never ask Oracle for advice, for the omniscient is impotent to change the course of future.
Two: Never base any decisions in your life on anyone’s advice
Three: Never trust anything that an Oracle says, for if he is indeed an Oracle, he won’t care for what he tells you, for he knows future won’t change no matter what he tells you. And if he isn’t, why are you even asking him?”
But, this is so contradictory, I said.
“And you think life isn’t? ” asked he, waving his hand in a gesture of dismissal. When Oracles ask questions, they’re rhetorical by definition.
