"If you follow the line all the way down to the bottom of the page, it will create an illusion of continuity. Squint your eyes just before the line and page end, then concentrate very hard. The line will go on for as long as you wish.Until you decide when it should stop. If you are able to do this, then fortune will favour you. But if the line stops before the end of the page, the opposite may be true".
It was worth a shot.
I prepared to squint.
