I finally have the words to describe what I have been doing for the past 2.5 years (though I didnt always think about it that way). The word is rehabilitation! I have been rehabilitating myself from being an automaton. The automaton was programmed to:
  • Work for the success of 'partha'
  • Want others to consider 'partha' kind
  • Compulsively desire praise / acknowledgment from others
  • Compulsively think
  • Fear for the the future of 'partha'
  • Run away from all the violence in the world
  • Masquerade all of its actions so that its presence is not detected
I am happy I detected it and that I made some progress in releasing myself from its grip. I am happy to share this journey with you and if you are doing something similar, would love to hear it from you too!

What does the slightly liberated automaton think about the nature of the fully liberated (non) automaton - the non programmed "being" that you don't yet have an analogy for! ;)
