The original letter
Dear Father Christmas,
Do you ever think you might be a gateway entity? I mean, the more we learn about neurology, the more we understand that neural pathways developed in our childhoods govern the way we process information in adulthood. So does the story of You prime us for acceptance of more complex (equally ephemeral, but not necessarily as benign) entities later in life?
In short: are you grooming my kids?
Also, I want a bike.
Ta. Love, Tim.
