“Bosh, Felipe, always joking. I am talking quite seriously. This ghost knows the ancient secret of eternal life! Can you imagine? Of course, in order to get him to share it with us, the professor has asked us to cooperate for the expenses this involves. And we have gladly decided to do this. This matter, being of such a transcendental nature, I believe that it has cost us next to nothing and has been well worth it. Wouldn’t you agree?”

“We shall see how you will most definitely pay serious attention to our conversation next week. By then, we will have a most fabulous session and the spirit will have revealed this priceless secret, and more importantly, I will finally be this close to establishing contact with the dearly departed.”

“Interesting, how a spirit that died so many years ago, and so distantly, has learned to speak Spanish, don’t you agree? As for the money, how is it that you will send to the other side? Perhaps you will transmute it, using the philosopher’s stone?”
