If we wish to help humanity, we must first revise our assumptions about others with the understanding that ALL functional agreements are pleasurable. Having done that, the best any of us can do is communicate — whatever the form in which we do so — the information that the contracted entity is free to expand, and that the energy entity is free to cease being energy if it so desires.
