Abstract: These are stories to be taken as the truth or as lies. They are akin to oracles, like those uttered by the priestess of ancient Delphi, stories do reflect the truth or the lies about our lives, our relationships with each other, and our hidden dreams. Therefore, stories can do many things to us: nock us, comfort us, lead us, destroy us. It is the task and the responsibility of the storyteller, or the writer, to tell these oracles, to interpret these dreams, and finally to share what knowledge may be found. The people in these seven stories struggle with truth and lies. They are comforted or mocked by truth; they are led or destroyed by lies. Honesty and clearsightedness are the fruits of such struggles: the only knowledge to be found and shared.
