Walter Eagle is, obviously, an alter ego. Not the type of Jekyll and Hyde troublesome, dissociative sociopath stereotypical of those who lead a double life, but more, as my old mate Cicero described it while coining the phrase back in 1st century Rome, "a second self, a trusted friend".
Walter's view on life actually coincides closely with mine. He has no choice. I dictate what he believes, denies or prefers and I use him as a spokesbird.
Occasionally Walter will introduce something slightly off-centre to my way of thinking. I listen, consider and then decide whether to record his/our view. So long as we talk to ourselves about it, I see no problem in maintaining an amicable agreement with him.
