Welcome to the site, Jack!
We have no idea whether Terry visits this site - he's never told us that he does, but you never know.
It sounds to me like you need to get a copy (if you haven't already) of Where's My Cow. It's never too early to indoctrinate new Pratchett fans.
Look, you've got it all wrong! You don't NEED to follow ME, You don't NEED to follow ANYBODY! You've got to think for your selves! You're ALL individuals!
Yes! We're all individuals!
