Hard as it is to disagree with a genius, I do... I genuinely prefer the
view point that eternal bliss is to be found not in death (as the shadow
traveler suggests) but within oneself. So while I agree entirely that the
quest over the entire Earth should have been fruitless, I really think that
Eldorado lies closer than Poe suggests.
