The myth of “free” as a source of addiction

Deathly fearing the fall from that final step off the massive, imaginary cliff of addiction,

Levitating where addiction promised a plunge,

One step past addiction’s:

CLEARANCE!

LOWEST PRICES EVER!

DON’T STOP NOW!

GOING OUT OF BUSINESS!

YOU WILL DIE!

A step outside of the cave reveals the infinite potential of an eternity calmly continuing—unmoved by every self-destructive addiction to the myth of “free.”

Nothing is free—least of all anything that must be mislabled and masked as “free” to seem worthy of the currency of life: time.

Everything costs—if only time.

and

time is priceless.

Guilt and dread from having wasted time and potential will tempt towards a relapse. The tool to resist: a knowledge that worse than the wasted time would be more wasted time: new waste simply cannot resolve old waste.

And the chains of a wasted past are also a myth—which, for effect, must be willingly pretended in a wasted present.
