The creator needs to lie to himself to hide a terrible truth from himself. The tricksters make their reality through will that they manifest in the form of a superhero for this is the time of science. The tricksters exist to make the creator a better liar for the creator must lie to one who is all knowing and all powerful and knows him very well. If the tricksters cannot help him with the Cosmic Lie then the universe will self-destruct. The book will give them whatever knowledge the werefoxes want but always in the form of a half-truth. The Book of Tricks incudes the Code of the Werefoxes. Since the werefoxes are created to be beyond good and evil the code shifts and the words of the book change. The werefoxes have found out the hard way that you ignore the text of the book at your peril (Cosmic Super-Duper Werefox Team) .
