Karl Marx was communism's most famous intellectual advocate. Rene Descartes was a famous French mathematician, scientist and philosopher. Marjane's favourite comic book is entitled "Dialectic Materialism." In the book, there are captions of Marx and Descartes conversing. Descartes tells Marx that the material world only exists in the imagination. Marx takes a stone, asks Descartes if it only exists in his imagination, and then hits Descartes over the head to prove that it is real. The author notes that, in the book and in her visions, God and Marx look very similar, since they both have long white beards. God still comes to visit her sometimes. He asks her if she still wants to be a prophet and she tells God to talk about something else. He changes the subject and tells her the weather will be nice the next day.
