Hmm, yes, I agree with you definition of asceticism. Mine has recently evolved from watching some Olympics and noting that the --winners-- have mostly lived joyful, disciplined and highly ego driven lives, going without many petty joys to attain gold. Enduring an almost primitive withdrawal from casual hedonism to pursue their goals. Are the alpha sports perps ascetic?
You are more the nihilistic neo- primitivist no?
