1. What Men Live By - Simon, a rather poor shoemaker finds Michael, a very enigmatic character, naked in the midst of winter. After bringing him home and teaching him his craft Michael spends the next six years with Simon and family. During this time Michael smiles only three times each to signify the learning of an important aspect of being human as it relates to God & love. Michael, the fallen angel, can gain re-ascension.

2. Three Questions - A King is attempting to gain answers for: A) when is the best time to do anything? B) who are the right people to listen to? And C) what is the most important thing to do? After meeting with a hermit and picking his brain the King learns an age-old lesson that many are still now learning - NOW is the most important time. Whom you're with is the most important person to listen to and the goal is always to do good.

3. The Coffee House of Surat - A theological argument which essentially boils down to a position that no man's conception of God can be flawed. However, the better a concept is the more likely a man is to try to be as good as that concept, and this action is incapable of being flawed.

4. How Much Land Does a Man Need? - Pahom gets a bit too greedy in his land acquisition endeavors and strives to continuously expand his lot. However, ultimately all he or any other man needs is "six feet" head to heel.
