Holy Orders - अंत में मेरी शुरुआत है।

The purpose of the Index, and indeed of the Catalogue itself, has been to clarify some of the more obscure and unusual entries. However the whole structure and order of the selection has been coherent and obvious. As the cumulation of the work of the Tungsten Fellow in Speculative Cross-cultural Hermeneutics, it could never have been otherwise. Over the years however there has been concern over the significant bias towards a synthesis of  Vachika-vrata and Trappist doctrine. At the time therefore there was no surprise that the compilation of material and collection of esoterica ended suddenly when Professor Mundeign drifted towards the community of Radical Cruxicogentians.  In the decades following his taking of holy orders nothing was heard from the Professor until the final clue that emerged as a scribbled note hidden in a batch of ceramic garden gnomes. This short terse message written in that characteristic handwriting, and later verified by graphologists, simply said ‘í lok er upphaf mitt’. Translated from the Icelandic as ‘In the end is my beginning’, many experts interpreted it as ‘I believe Chairman Mao is managing affairs and that He doesn't need any advice from me. With Mao in charge, I believe everything will work out for the best in the end. So what is there to worry about?’
