Grab the closest book and open to page 123, find the fifth sentence and write the next three sentences.

The good, unlearned books say that He who keeps the distant stars within His fold comes without intermediary, but Plutarch's precepts and the experience of old women in Soho, ministering their witchcraft to servant girls at a shilling apiece, will have it that a strange living man may win for Daimon an illustrious dead man; but now I add another thought: the Daimon comes not as like to like but seeking its own opposite, for man and Daimon feed the hunger in one another's hearts.  Because the ghost is simple, the  man heterogeneous and confused, they are but knit together when the man has found a mask whose lineaments permit the expression of all the man most lacks, and it may be dreads, and of that only. (PASL, 335)

The mask helped the man to purify his intent, becoming single-minded and contemplative instead of "heterogeneous and confused."
