About the modern day Apolytrosis, as I understand the word it means
redemption. Of course there are only about a thousand ways to explain
redemption for each individual. I was thinking...how much would
redemption would I get by kicking a certain habit. Habits, to me,
being very serious trappings of my demiurge. So what about a willful
attempt at kicking a material habit, sugar,smoking,harmful
relationships...etc., does this sound like a modern day Apolytosis
attempt? I could be wayyyyyyy of base with this. LOL.
