    What this says is to not care about the future.

    Not clear to me that such a being will last long.

    One can do this as an OT, but not as a body.  Taking care of a body
and others that one loves, even clearing people of such care, involves
living in the future with goals, purposes, intentions, desires etc.

    The greater trick is to do this with out getting caught
in total seriousness.  All game playing is future oriented,
but can one play without NEEDING to win?

    That's the question.
