Are you free in the body that you and a hundred-trillion microbes call home? Are you free in your single-player gamespace that creates a multi-player illusion? Are you free in the knowably false timespace, energymatter, causalistic, dualistic universe? Are you free in your mind? In your programming? From your programming? Obviously, you can never really be free, so if you feel free, I guess that’s about as close as you’re gonna get — free in your ignorance.
