We must learn, reluctantly, that our parents are unable to protect us from the passage of time, from decline, and from death. Yet we retain, even as adults, the delusion that, while others may die, we never will. This adds fuel to the murderous anger we are born with and must master, alongside the contradictory vertical split in the mind that we are destined to die. The Promise is described in patients and in examples from biography and fiction in relation to anniversaries and specific holidays.

The book ends with a specific illustration in relation to an eight-month-old infant.
