"...oh it won't kill you, but when you have it you will then be able to accomplish that deed all by yourself."
What would be the ultimate designer drug? What qualities would it have that could make you its slave? Pure pleasure? Of course, the more pleasure you have, the worse is its absence when it is gone. Oblivion? Same problem, coming back is worse than leaving. Wisdom? Wisdom without power is frustration, madness. What do you desire, what is it that you cannot obtain without its use? Love? No shortcuts here, love needs to be nourished and have time to grow. Power? The feeling of power is not power, it is actually a very dangerous delusion. Truth?
Truth. The absence of delusion, of illusion, of confusion. The real deal. The portrait of Dorian Gray. Cold hard facts. The ultimate drug- ...oh, it won't kill you, but when you have it you will then be able to accomplish that deed all by yourself.
