This idea of authoring your own self-amplifying feedback loops and exercising control over your creative destiny requires a boldness in character because the realization of the dizzying freedom we have to compose our lives – what Timothy Leary called internal freedom – can at times cause the vertigo of freedom, too.
What do I do? If I could do anything, it can be paralyzing. But I think that if we are able to courageously embrace the uncertainty of that freedom and exercise discerning and smart and refined creative and linguistic choices every step of the way, we do have the capacity to turn our lives into a work of art. And why shouldn’t we?
