It's at this point, in the flow of the narrative, that I'm tasked with the honor of introducing this curious and unanticipated burglar to my dear readers. Before doing so, however, there's a matter on which I'd like to proffer an opinon for my readers' consideration. The gods of old are revered as omniscient and omnipotent. The Christian God, in particular, has carried this mantle all the way to today's twentieth century. What the ordinary man views as omniscience and omnipotence, though, can also, as occasion may have it, be taken for ignorance in impotence. Such a situation is clearly paradoxical, and when I think that I'm the first, since the heavens and earth were formed, to have unearthed said paradox, I can't but blush with pride. I'm no common cat, if I may say so myself. Allow me a moment to expound, and to also, I hope, impress upon the arrogant human mind the majesty of feline intellect. They say that God created all things. It follows then that man, too, is God's creation. In fact, as I understand it, the scriptures clearly note this. Concerning man, it's indeed the case that man himself, after millennia of self study, wonders ever more at the mystery his own existence, and at the same time acknowledges more and more the omniscience and omnipotence of God. What it comes down to is that even as mankind proliferates, no two human faces are alike. Facial implements are of course limited. Sizewise, all faces are more or less the same. Put another way, the ingredients are identical. In spite of this, no two faces emerge alike. In light of the fantastic variety of faces formed from such basic ingredients, one can't but stand in awe of the creator. Such diversity could only arise from immense creative power. The greatest artists, exhausting themselves in their craft, produce no more than a dozen or so memorable faces. That being the case, one can't but stand in awe at the deftness of God, who undertook, single-handedly, the creation of all mankind. Nowhere among men is such ability to be seen, and it therefore warrants the label of omnipotence. Human beings, on this point, seem greatly humbled in the presence of God. And such humility, from the vantage of men, is only reasonable.
