Quandary Resolution 4198
pangloss, unciform, uncanny, assoil
It is uncanny how a modern-day person can be such a pangloss, thinking that only good things will happen for her people and wearing an unciform jade pendant to remind her of the Maori creation story of New Zealand -- islands being fished from the primordial sea by a great god -- but she can be assoiled on the basis of believing in her cultural heritage and its myths.
