Beyond Otaku おたく/オタク

Ego is the witch who rides the broomstick of Western thought.
The Beyond-Otaku is ego-less, like an unemployed geisha,
makes journeys without goals,
exercises freedom by staying centred in humility.
A prime example within Japanese culture is Santoka.
A good Western example is probably Diogenes, though Genet might qualify, too -
if his passive, desire-less (maybe pleasure-less) homosexuality
was an expression of dedicated innocence.
