If moving towards the truth is not what you want. If breaking free of the ties that have bound your life. If a rejection of the very reason you are here now, searching for freedom is not what you are after, stop reading now.

I’ll assume whoever is left only wants one thing: the cold and ruthless truth. Now to dispense with the pleasantries…

4444 The Quest for Autonomy: Nobody Is Smarter Than You Are

Striving for conscious awareness and truth in our daily lives is analogous to navigating a maze of illusions. From our first day in the classroom, we are told what to do and how to do it.
