It’s normal, which is to say, the usual outworking of blind nature, to build hierarchical structures.
In my hierarchy, I have actually free people at the top.
Yet, the very fact that someone is free of blind nature, means they cannot be in a hierarchy constructed by blind nature.
Correlated to this, is a “quest, path, right of passage” which is formed out of the dogmatic expectation of achieving rank.
However, from my understanding I see only two states a human can find themselves in;
The fantasy is that one is closer to free, or further away. There is a drama that is taken to be necessary. A story.
So one can be on a path of pilgrimage. Exploring shrines, hunting dragons, other wise “earning the reward” of devotion.
When the map one created for oneself is challenged, the pasting over of the blind instinctual maps on actualism, this is when the opportunity to be free is present.
There are only two states of human experience regarding actual freedom;
From what I can see, “not free” can be experienced in an increasingly pleasant way, but it doesn’t actually bring one closer to free.
That would imply that one “earnt” something, that the actual bestows something.
The actual already runs the show. Nothing has ever been held back, at the top of a hierarchy, at the end of a quest.
It’s always right here, and now.
Two states; not free, free.
The “actualism method” as experienced and described by Richard is what was later called “out from control” virtual freedom, and ongoing excellence experience.
Yet, all who followed, had little, or a very short experience of “out from control”.
So, the opportunity is there for anyone, at anytime, to become actually free, because it has been demonstrated that no extended period of any sort of virtual freedom is required.
There is no “requirerer”, no one marking your actualist exam, no eye in the sky, or secret watcher, only “not free” and “free”.
