I, Oracle tool of eternal, placid in mental state.
High-intellect mortal, dropping parables to educate.
Special emotional properties, concepts of four elements.
Fire; earth; wind; water, mind on matter transcendents.
Fire akin to blood, therein lies real passion.
Air present in yellow bile, links of wrathful emotion.
Water manifest in phlegm, too much produce laziness.
Earth found in black bile, associates of sadness.
Telepathic capabilities, enhancement of perception.
Supernatural abilities, sheer mind submission.
Mixed cause and effect, experimental backward mask.
Image shown to subject, tenth of a second the task.
First picture displayed, ultrasensory perception.
Second subliminal image, recalling jiffy forgotten.
Utilize the enhanced, nothing but natural.
Subconscious skill possessed, to absorb more subtle signal.
Desire overriding reason, inner darkness of humanity.
Nature and nurture function, sexually obsessed mentality.
Attempts to explain marvels, visible through naked eyes.
Ubiquitous superpower, shattering inquiring minds.
Head and facial movements, most info' effective.
Eminent emotions expressed, all but instinctive.
Familial body language, few employ it consciously.
Nonverbal communication, many exercise it subconsciously.
