Everybody lives in his world of ideas
Either counsciously or uncounsciously every golem is living in his world of ideas. Inside the golem universum there is always the current idea of self (some kind of a narrative like "I am a thief" or "I am a student") and, as long as the golem is not self-satisfied, there is also a future idea of the self. Massive action (+ resulting frustration) is needed to reach the future idea of self. The current idea of self is happy or unhappy etc., also some kind of narrative, the universe does not care. The pictures below show various possibilities within the total world of ideas that you are part of and speak for themselves. The selfsatisfied Golem will never find these pictures.
