Why does the conveyor take the dope?

We often witness the conveyor taking the dope.  The explanation is that, whereas the source passes unharmed through various tortuous passions and obligations, the ignoramus refuses to do so.

Understanding why this is so requires some insight into the psychology of the ignoramus.  Studies have shown that he (more often than ‘she’) fears being shattered by his passions, which are rarely straightforward – his characteristic ‘glazing’ is a sign of this fear.   His multitudinous passions will, he thinks, spark-off others (both passions and people) and this will lead to the fragmentation and/or proliferation of frames of reference, leading ultimately to his volcanic plugs being blown.  Punishment must follow – a good walloping from the obligations; and there are countless obligations.
