At the crossroads of euphoria, faith, and insanity, one can learn a great number of things. But if I have learned anything, it is the malleability of a constructed reality. Anything is possible, and so everything is permitted. The excesses of a younger self, somewhere behind me on an illusory timeline, have enslaved me to my self. This too is an illusion, but this knowledge does not serve me; even the most powerful truths can be largely irrelevant. I walk down all paths at once, no longer bound by habits I pretend are beyond my control, and laugh, never again a slave to anyone or anything.
