One of Tolstoy's mystical stories. An Assyrian king vanquishes a neighboring kingdom, and the king is contemplating how best to torture, humiliate, and kill the captured king. An old man shows up in his bedroom and tries to convince him that all are one, and each living thing is a part of the whole. A bit didactic.
