If indeed altruism is basically self-gratification, how is it then that satisfaction will be achieved by such discharge? In fact, is not dissatisfaction the more plausible outcome? Furthermore, is not apparent that such self-gratification is nothing more than masturbation, and ultimately self-mutilation? Ergo, is it not obvious that the inseparability from all things, through the meditation of which you speak, merely the self-mutilation of masturbation? A mutilation of the lesser member, as it were? And so my friend, at the end of the day, we have nothing more than this: He who meditates, masturbates; he who masturbates, mutilates—such a one does not act toward another; rather he whacks off the self.
