Kevin, aren't there one-dimensional and predictable people? I even
recall a sociological study called _One Dimensional Man_... the
argument being that the organized society robs humans of some of
their dimensions (robs them or they can't exercise them because
they're worthless for survival, etc.).
In a sense, our antihero Parker is one-dimensional. If he has other
dimensions, they are not revealed.
