      Freedom

      What does it mean to be free and what exactly are we free from?

      To be free means to be not dependent upon.

      We are free from something iff we don't change when that something changes.

      It quite simply means you are not trapped.

      But since we are all trapped in one way or another, it means you perceive your trap to be less consctricting than whatever trap you are comparing it with.
      Whether your trap is REALLY any better is hard to say, as manipulation and acclimation(in lack of a better word) are key principles here.

      I guess what matters to me is being free from that 9 to 5 working lifestyle and remaining that way. Providing me with more time to do that which i enjoy.

      I wouldn't consider myself totally free. And i often wonder if anyone is or if anyone really wants it. Free from the confines of self. Our deepest desires, fears, our identity, our past, freedom from expectations.

      To me, in daily usage of the word, being free means to not be ruled by anyone (by which I refer to human beings). Freedom means living without having to obey some person or group of persons.

      In a broader sense, being free, to me means being unconstrained, which, again to me, essentially means being God. Or maybe not even God is unconstrained, in which case complete freedom does not exist other than as a vaguely perceived idea; an ideal state of being.

      So ... is this the real universe, or is it just a preliminary study?

      The Lesser Freedom: Freedom from Others.

      The Greater Freedom: Freedom from Self.

      What truly is the difference between a tyrant dictating that one behaves in a certain manner and an addiction or physical desire dictating one's actions??
