I think you fail to realise, or perhaps conveniently fail to realise, that the defragmentation is also the work of our intellect, just as the fragmentation was. Also, if we cannot find it ("the right act for me") by intellectual means, then how are we to find it. By "letting go" begs the question, how are we to do that? And if you can answer that, is not that a method, and is not the methodology the result of an intellectual process? I would appreciate a reply to these questions. As for my own reply, I do not believe there is a "right act" to play: this is dangerous talk that an ingenious mind can turn to its own advantage, and can lead to caste systems. But that aside, it does not answer my concerns. Whatever act I choose, I am still bound to society's rule. My choice has no real value unless it is a *possible* choice. It is certainly not one where money buys food, and where the former is earned through a disproportionate amount of work unfailry distributed. In order for me to live my intended life, I need not only find it; there must be a societal change as well.
