Wildcat;

Thank you for explaining! I understand better now.
It seems to me that this viewpoint ultimately rejects the absolute...
Curious about where this idea will go, if it might be adopted by a greater percentage - I don't know if very many modern humans would be comfortable with self-deterritorialization.
But, it's incredible to think of what could be achieved if that door were opened.

Also I think that right now it's much easier to think in this way, isolated, than it is to actually live it. To be human, to need food, shelter, and therefore, money or some means of sustaining ourselves... Like, Maslow's hierarchy of needs. So many of those basic ones aren't being met - it's difficult to think about transcending the set world-view when one is hungry and tired.
And then, even if one is free to think, it's been true in history that those thinkers are still isolated, since at first the rest of the world thinks it's foolish.
How to trust oneself, when everyone is against you?

Or does that come first? Should we first change how we see ourselves and the world, in order to take care of those needs? Should The Hierarchy be actually turned upside-down, or rather, re-written?

*Also I just looked this up. Should've done that earlier! I'll just leave the link here:
