He can only manage to climb the iron scrap mountain right now.
I can understand his situation because I used to be like him.
Now it is about time for you to revise your understanding that I am still called 'Avatar'.
I am in a different time flow from the one you guys live in, and I am no longer 'a prisoner of the hologram' here.
This man you see now is 'the present Avatar'.
Just like I have been following the 'Samurai facing the past(Kako-muku Samurai)', this man has been following me in fact to come here.
This man is far less independent-minded than who I used to be. It is difficult for him to decide things on his own. He cannot believe what he sees with his own eyes. He is a typical person who doesn't stop believing that the information he got from something greater than himself is real.
Pitifully, or I should say, I understand his situation very well because I used to be like him. He has been raised since his childhood to develop a conditioned response to any event that happens in his real life. His regular responses to things are almost automatic.
In the meantime, he hates 'those who don't respond like he does'.
He likes to take commemorative photos.
He gets caught up in trying to create good memories that he would remember in the future rather than being engaged with his present real experience to interact with the world.
He is a hard worker.
He is determined to believe in the view of the world that only getting through the difficulties in life leads him to happiness, and he focuses on meeting hardships, feeling hopeful.
Seemingly he looks like an ideally good person.
But he is missing something.
Yes. You are right. He doesn't have 'the present'.
He lacks one more thing, which is 'to think by himself'.
What he believes 'thinking' is actually an action of 'mere reference and replacement’.
Consequently, all of his actions are conditioned. In other words, his actions are the products from the past.
That is all the reality he lives in.
Right now, all of us, I, 'the Samurai facing the Past(Kako-muku Samurai)' and the present 'man who is called Hirasawa' call this man with the same name, 'a pain in the neck'.
But we cannot do anything for him.
Well, let's leave him alone.
He might discover something if he continues his effort for many years even if it is beating a dead horse...or he might not?
