Yes life is a journey but every journey has a destination. If that wasn't the case then the journey we call ''life'' will be pretty meaningless in the end
It's angels and demons all the way down, on more than a two dimensional plane - there are shortcuts and backdoors everywhere, we don't have to honour the interrupting demi-gods with our attention at all times. Distractions and miss-directions divide and conquer's bad fur day.
Yes. They're ideas. And we should never be one idea. If we are ever reduced to one idea we have lost control again, and everything will seem like the obvious thing to do. Look at the post, and you'll ride your bike right into it.
