    "Porno......graphy......?" His single eye blinked once, then twice. And then he put two and two together, and if he could blush, he would have. How could organics do such things?! It didn't seem affectionate at all... more like painful...

    He gawked at Zurg for several long moments before shaking his head slightly when he addressed him. "What? Oh, yes, I found this," he said quickly, showing a copy of Paradise Lost. "It speaks about a Lucifer, a term I encountered in a book about djinn beforehand. But I did not know who Lucifer was, so I could not read on without first solving this puzzle..."

    He hoped they could stick to this new topic. He had no desire to find out just how intimate two people could be. And he'd thought Jo's dirty DVD had been bad...

    "What? Let me see that..." Zurg took the book into his hands and put on his reading glasses, eying the thing over from cover to cover. What? This didn't seem right, either! Proxy was terrible at treasure hunting!

    "No, Proxy, this isn't what you want." The Evil Emperor handed the robot back his book, and decided that if something had to be done, you had to do it yourself. That's what Nana always said...and she was plenty evil...for a planet, that was. He went a little further, shaking his head as he read the numerous titles. No, not quite, and definitely not. Hmph! Where could he find a tome about the dj--Ah! Here we are!

    "This..." Zurg smiled, carefully reaching up and removing a book, wiping the dust off with a hand. "...is what you want. For, feast your eye upon the Qur'an..."

    He came back to the robot, holding the book for him to see and the Evil Emperor played with his glasses before opening the cover. The pages were worn, and on these pages was an elegant hand but also...a strange hand. What did these squiggles and flowery loops pen strokes mean?

    "Ah! Silly me..." He laughed. "I can't translate this book. It's in...in, eh...Well, it's in a language I don't know." Zurg concluded shamelessly. "Seems you have yet more work to do. I did a few research notes on my own and djinns come from an Earthen religion called Islam. I don't know what it entails, but this is the religion's book. Now...if only I had a translator..."

    "The Qur'an?" He took the book from Zurg and looked down at it. Sure enough, the language was incomprehensible. "Translating won't be necessary," he assured him, putting the book on his pile. "I can simply download the appropriate language and read it later."

    He paused then, tilting his head to the side slightly, considering something. "But Lucifer is in Christianity, not in Islam.... and the djinn I encountered seems to be a mixture of the two religions....." Proxy himself wasn't sure whether his sources were correct or not. But the djinn had referred to 'God' not to 'Allah'... he was confused again.

    "Uh-oh...You have that look again..." Zurg was beginning to realize when the robot was confused, and when it was, well, confused! With a sigh and a slouch in his shoulders, he took the mercy upon himself to prevent another question from rising.

    "What are you stuck about now..." He asked dryly, rolling a hand for the robot to spit it out.

    "These humans on Earth... they are confusing," he confessed. "They seem to have several different religions that they all insist are unique, each supporting that theirs is the correct one, and yet share a number of similarities. Names, traditions, tiers..." He whirred, almost petulantly. "Why must organics be so confusing....?"

    "Augh, religion..." He fanned a hand dismissively again. "We never saw reason for such complicated hoo-blah; no offense to those who practice such beliefs of course. We just figured hey, the universe is an amazing thing. Let's just be grateful and go on with our lives. Done. No fancy books, no rites, nothing. Very spiritual personally with little to no organized religion. Now, I suggest you just read this without thinking about outside sources. Stick to what is before your feet before seeing down the road."

    And at this advice he smiled, wondering if Proxy would understand the real meaning behind it.

    "That is the most logical and sound suggestion on religion I have heard as of yet," Proxy admitted, actually liking the sound of that. He pondered Zurg's next words, adjusting the book on the top of his pile.

    "Concentrate on the present and not on the future, correct?" he asked, taking Zurg's smile to be a good sign.

    "Yes, we didn't ponder too hard, as you can see." But he nodded at Proxy's latter comment, and was relieved the robot wasn't too lost in thought to understand the simpler things. "Quite right! Can't help the future if you can't help the present. It also means that it's best to look at a problem in steps; preferably with what you know, and then with more that you learn as you go on. I told Jo the same thing about--"

    He abruptly stopped and cleared his throat, slapping the robot on the shoulder with a crooked grin.

    "Well, ready to find some more things? What else you need help on~?"

    "...About?" Proxy asked curiously, his single eye blinking at the slap on his shoulder It did not hurt, and he'd read that it was a gesture usually used between close friends, and he wondered whether Zurg was approving of him with that gesture. He must have said something right, then.

    "Religion, mostly, which is by far the most difficult subject I have encountered in regards to comprehension," the robot replied to his question. "And... love," he admitted rather hesitantly, looking down at the djinn books clasped in his hands, wondering what Zurg's reaction to that would be.

    "Love?" The Evil Emperor repeated, trying his best not to snort. The robot was serious, wasn't he? Well, Zurg had advice for him! With another hand upon Proxy's shoulder, Zurg tapped the robot's chest lightly. "Love isn't something you learn in a book, silly! It's something you learn; experience. It's neither passed down through elders or earned in battle, or even granted to you because you demanded it. Love comes through when you least expect it, and it is not a thing you can control or cage. It simply...is. Does that help?"

    Of course, he immediately coughed into a hand and cleared his throat, avoiding a potential blushing spell.

    "At least...from what they tell me, that is." He added.

    "Not really..." Proxy admitted. "Though Kev-Mak-Tarr tried to explain it to me once, I was hoping you could perhaps enlighten me." He left unsaid why he wanted Zurg's opinion on the matter. "He was quite confusing, as well..."

    Why was love such an elusive subject?

    "Hmm, well..." He tapped the robot's chest and released him, still walking down the aisle in tandem. "Like I said, it can't be explained by your friends or peers; it's something that has be to witnessed by yourself. There's really no way to answer it, and no complex, alien equations can do it, either; believe me, I've tried." He added, giving a little laugh as he elbowed Proxy.

    "And Kev, really? I always knew the little booger stain was a romantic at heart. Although I didn't know he was into furries..."

    Proxy didn't understand Zurg's last comment, but decided to let it slide.

    "Would I have to observe a couple in love to understand it?" he asked, following Zurg down the aisle. If that were the case, he might come to understand the concept faster than he had originally thought.

    "Er...you....could, yes. I suppose..." Now came the bit where Zurg talked to Proxy about being a Nosy Nancy. "But I would suggest you ask the couple, first. I'm sure no couple would rightfully allow someone to monitor themselves without consent. It's just polite and considerate if you asked before doing anything, you understand? But yes, if it would help you comprehend the most complex organic emotion besides the maternal link between mother and child--which is very complex--then yes, by all means, see to it."

    "I will, Zurg-Emperor." Proxy even managed to look ashamed, tilting his head from one side to the other with a small mechanical whir.

    "Mother and child...?" Well, this just opened up a whole new can of cosmic worms. "Like Creator-Josephine and I?"
