    First off, Charlie if you are reading this, I sent you a very, VERY important email to your Charisma on Command email. If you could read that and send me a reply, that would be wonderful.
    No one can get by on Charisma alone. You may be the most likable man on earth, able to get everyone you interact with to do whatever you want them to and make them love doing it, but still have so many limitations on what you are able to achieve. Charisma doesn’t create new ideas; it did not invent the wheel or give man the gift of flight. Charisma does not allow the schizophrenic man to identify what sights and sounds were made up by his own mind and what is really part of the world we live in. Charisma can not discover what has never been found before. But Logic can. I am going to be over the course of the next few months, giving you what I know about Logic and reasoning. For a bit of a preview, here are (at least some) of the lessons I will be covering. By the end, I hope to help you get Logic on Lock, and in doing so gain a better understanding of and control over both your life and the wonderful & terrifying world we live in.
