Litany Against Pugs
The singular multiplicity of PUGs draws my deepest attention. It is a thing of ultimate beauty.

"Make no premades," my father said.
-The voice of Ghanima,
From the Oral History

Most premades are based on cowardice. It's so easy to premade by teaching cowardice. You water down the standards which would lead to bravery. you restrain the will. You regulate the appetites. You fence in the horizons. You make a law for every movement. You deny the existence of chaos. You teach even the newbs to breathe slowly. You tame.

In all of my STO I have seen no law of nature, unchanging and inexorable. This game presents only changing relationships which are sometimes seen as laws by short-lived awareness. These fleshly sensoria which we call self are ephemera withering in the blaze of DEVs, fleetingly aware of temporary conditions which confine our activities and change as our activities change. If you must label the absolute, use it's proper name: Temporary.
