Start at any cost. Start with a tremendous effort of will. Start and remember that as soon as you start, the stream will catch you, and you will fall like a stone down into the abyss. However, it will be even harder to finish than to start. Falling into the abyss can last indefinitely.
Do you know where exponential growth comes from? Everything goes in a circle. The first half of the way you climb the mountain with zeal, and what seems to you an explosive growth is a step into the abyss and a flight down with the acceleration of free fall to the next lower energy level. The lower the energy level, the more energy it has.
The main lie of pride is that you lack something. Pride is hunger, but the truth is that you always have a little more than you need. Pride is the fear that this excess is too small. "You are too close to the edge of the abyss" - your pride always lies to you.
A snake that eats itself doesn't actually kill anyone. In fact, it is a terrible beast, just a squirrel in the wheel. The easiest way to get to the beginning, to step right into the mouth of this monster. When you are eaten, you will be the first.
The disintegration of a system into chaos is its growth, through the division and increase of its constituent forms. Growth is very easy and does not require expenditure of energy in the process. However, if you show restraint to growth, this generates a process of energy release, turning the system into an energy generator.
The meaning of existence is that the disintegration of the system is the pursuit of perfection. To achieve perfection, you don't need any effort, you just need to relax and leave yourself to the endless fall into the abyss. Black is perfection, and white is imperfection.
The smaller the step, the easier it is to move. You can't jump a chasm in two steps, of course, but if you go down one side and up the other... or, for example, go around it. After all, we live in a limited world where everything has an end and a beginning.
Division of the system automatically generates multiplication of the system outside. The division of the system is a process of infinite fall, which does not require energy expenditure, but releases energy.
