Sensible shoes are usually expected as suitable footwear in Villa Twaklinilkawt. A respectable understanding of history and science is expected here, too. This is particularly the case during a convocation of enlightened beings.
The two standing committees for the forthcoming convocation are currently sitting in concurrent session in the parlour meant for you. The two understanding committees are standing around in the foyer of this ethereal theatre, wondering what to do.
Perhaps you can be of assistance. Are you an enlightened being?
If so, you are probably here to remedy a very dire situation, with the utmost urgency. Please get on with it as quickly, quietly and tidily as possible.
Do you intend being involved in launching the Moderate Australia Party?
Have you had much experience of convocations and/or committees?
Are you a graduate of at least one quaternary course in Twaklinology?
All suitably qualified Twaklinologists are enlightened beings.
Do you intend to continue learning from unpleasantness for good to triumph?
The science of Twaklinology has developed, over recent centuries, to such an extraordinary level of purity that to purify it any further would amount to absurdity. For this reason, the highly refined science of Twaklinology, in its most practical form, now turns that purification into advanced application in the Adelaidezone, and elsewhere.
Here are a few matters to consider before participating in the convocation:

Rule number 1 in all of Medicine and Surgery:— Dr Eric Levi (@DrEricLevi) January 23, 2018
See your patients.
I mean, really SEE them. See their pain, their fears, their concerns, their past, their social context, their struggles. See how their situations have created their illness.
See their humanity.

What have you been learning from vulnerable individuals?

How do you protect yourself, and other people, as an enlightened being?
