Ah! I know why I’m working on all this stuff for so long. I want to be able to accurately summarize anything presented to me in any form in the shortest time possible to anyone who wants to know and mostly, to myself in a way that is accurately representative of my position that I am willing to stand behind.

I don’t mind the illusion part. I don’t mind this form of immorality. But I agree that WITHOUT the embodiment processes functioning properly, you’ll be something different if anything at all.
