Enclosure in "self" is a trap. Anastasia attempts to get out of this state for years. The human conceives enlightenment as a way of getting outside of limits of existence. That's the level of consciousness that would be genuinely free of all mundane, routine, trivial. That's an escapism in a sense of getting away of all known and limited. That's reaching the domain where creativity sourced from human's intelligence would be unbounded and unrestrained. Perhaps, the true genius perpetuates in forms and possibilities still unthought of by humans.
