if the "free" you mentioned is the second one, it is necessary to understand the mechanism of creative ability to answer your question.
Does that mean that is has to be explained to you, Mr. Mind, or do you propose to explain it to us?
I'd like you to explain this to me, because I have a very real problem with it:
"6. When people work for their own needs and wishes, they will not feel tired easily, for they are driven by their needs and wishes."
I happen to work as much for my own needs and wishes as anybody would and well beyond the extent that most would; my time is very much my own to create as I wish to, as I do indeed.
The problem then is to know what to create, what my needs and wishes are. How does one know what to wish for?
The pleasure principle is often invoked but in practice this proves to be remarkably elusive if not dangerous. The pleasure close up is never quite what it appeared to be from a distance, and in my experience impossible to achieve with no regard for the needs and wishes of other people, rather the opposite in fact; I crave appreciation; the tiredness comes as soon as I restrict the feedback loop; the stimulation is because of other people.
