Aquarius 19. Suddenly a woman laughs, not knowing why.
The jokes of Harem Nazar were not funny — nobody thought they were. Nazar never wrote them down, and no one ever remembered them. In researching this curious joking Alchemist the sage Irnad found that many of the people who heard them became subject later to inexplicable fits of laughter which they said seemed to come from nowhere. Irnad theorized that Nazar’s jokes spoke to the subconscious self, who takes awhile to get jokes. Nazar’s jokes, like fine wine needed time to ferment in the hidden self, and then when the time was right the laughter would unaccountably burst forth, like a cactus flowering suddenly, in the desert.
