Unlikely. After all, you are writing on this list.

A computer (of today's complexity, not a theoretical mega processor) exists
to get things done. It has masters that tell it what to do. Many acetics
have forsaken pleasure to fulfill the "instructions" of what they perceive
as their "maters." What is your master? If the only person, or thing, or
entity, you answer to is yourself, must you not live for yourself? I find
it hard to believe you are the one true altruist.
