"The great fool shows his true face as the FOOL, the first card in

 

the tarot deck. He is the master of ceremonies, smiling and

 

welcoming to the show, the Grand Illusion, the parade of

 

archetypal characters to follow.The FOOL announces that what we

 

are about to see is only a melodrama, and that we should not take

 

these masks or matters too seriously. Our personalities are just

 

put-ons, personae, roles we are given to play. We just read the

 

lines and flesh out scenes; there's really not much about we can do

 

about the plot. Our destiny is, after all, written in the cards."
