There is no such thing as freedom

… but there are specific absences of dependency. 

To think some action is free,  is to think nothing at all, but rather to be just confused.  Rather we should think specifically that this or that #deed,  done by this or that #agent,  is not #dependent on some other deed. 

Ontologically here is a confusion …

Where “dependant” means “not dependant”.   In other words it has been determined that Agent A can do Deed 1 without the necessity of Deed 2 being done.  But the deed 1 itself cannot be deemed “free” unless all other dependencies in the universe are also deeemed “not dependant”.   Only specific dependencies between events obtain. 

A freedom is not a property of a deed,  or even an ability of a agent, 
but rather a lack of some specific dependency between deeds themselves.

Seems like you are talking about physical dynamics, not freedom. Freedom is based on belief’s and nothing else. Physical dynamics are characteristics of a story theme one can select to take a journey, have an experience, according to that set of rules. They are not absolute. Rather a set of pseudo beliefs is chosen and adopted to support the sequencing of the associated rules for a consistent reality experience in the desired medium. Dependency is a property of the particular story and pseudo beliefs, not an intrinsic property of reality.

For instance, those who do acro yoga have a completely different set of pseudo beliefs about their body and what it is able to do than those who only do housework and light exercise in life. When I was still in Seattle and doing acro yoga avidly, one of the things I enjoyed was going to Greenlake park with a troupe of acro yogie’s and when a passerby stopped to ask questions about what we were doing, I would help them generate a temporary set of pseudo beliefs, and upon my feet, they would experience a freedom in their body which would literally blow their minds! Of course, it would take months of practice for them to own these beliefs for themselves, but while in the influence of my strong vibration, they were able to have the experiences without owning the beliefs. It was magical and one of my fondest memories of my Seattle experience … and one that taught me the truth about the slipperiness of reality and beliefs and how experience is ONLY based on beliefs and vibration of state of being, nothing else.


well it certainly rings true over here that what i believe about my body movements will control what i do and will shape what i experience. 


but when i move with others in the #world,  it is not just my own beliefs which control what happens.  if i am the second boy from the bottom, then the position of my body is dependant on the position of the person’t arms supporting me.  our #shared belief shapes  the configuration;  but those beliefs should not assume they are  free of such dependencies which obtain.
