A while ago, I accepted an invitation to join a small group of men seeking to be elevated to the status of divine. As one of the requirements, I was to renounce mortal pleasure. I’m starting to rethink that, though, as there’s a few mortal pleasures that I really underestimated. What’s the best way to decide, especially given that I’ll have to spend the rest of my life on the run from the brotherhood?
Missing Life in Bangkok
The key here is: what mortal pleasures are you missing? Is it love? Because believe me, that’s not worth falling out of the ascension bandwagon. If, on the other hand, what you miss is, say, canned whipped cream, let’s be perfectly honest: What’s the point in living forever if you’re banned the pleasure of a sugar coma?
P.S. I recommend avoiding sugar comas while you’re on the run. Secretive brotherhoods are notorious for showing up at inopportune times.
