Transcript between StPsy and JQ –
alright, you are our 2nd editor to speak with StPsy; what will our topic be?
For the topic I’d like to discuss how we live in an illusory freedom and
how one finds true freedom. The theme of this era is definitely egocentric.
That to me is the left side of the brain; that logical, calculating aspect
of our nature. The left brain is set in routines, patterns, and is linear.

So another form of not limiting ourselves…
Right. Therefore, we’re able to bring forth that character by drawing it
out from ourselves. The way were limited now its like you’re free to do so

Now that paints a pretty clear picture.
All while some are selling the idea of freedom while profiting off of the
