I guess it depends on how finely you break it down.
If you do something not because you want to do it, but because you want something else, can you really call the means an ends? It would, after all, be called "a means to an end"
It's like the meme where they say it's about the journey and not the destination.
But then, if you put it like that, is the journey a destination?
Maybe it depends on the person. If you don't seek the ends, the means has to be the ends. Like we're forced into seeking no matter what.
Maybe nobody can seek nothing.
Maybe seeking is living.
Which makes this a thread for nobody.
But maybe I can be nobody, too.
Nobody has to kill Polyphemus, after all.
I had to rewrite it because I ruined my own awful joke.
