Yes, such a stretch towards liberation. This is the real thing, and it is possible to some extent. Not entirely, but enough to make a difference. I do think the limitations, the biology, are real, but much environmental, cultured meanness, acceptance, can be examined and blown apart. I love the image of time's "blade"s as shadows of "shrapnel". And what there is when this happens...is quite what you say... beyond physical embellishment. Well, maybe there's poetry. But most important it's good to always keep looking ... we have more powers of insight than we can ever manage to use in that shadow of time that we have, there's always more we haven't seen... even though inevitably it's quite impossible I think, to escape it entirely. But...but...there's beauty in seeing more, a kind of (relative) freedom, as we know... that's the essence of it, as far as I can see.
