When written, said or even in conditions where you act intentionionaly, "free yourself from all thoughts" - Creates a contradiction on "when written, said" and creates a fork in potential directions on "even". It leads into contradictory behaviour because to some of them  "free yourself from all thoughts" = "To be yourself"". Or the person admits he "is not" for their sake.
"Are we hedonists?" assumes a more important role, as a question.

Free yourself from all thoughts simply means to allow your mind to empty itself - without intention or struggle. That is more of a form of "being".

Where does "hedonist" enter into that - although one might say that being free of thoughts is capable of creating great pleasure within...or at the very least lead, bringing one to balance.
