Delusion of self
Is the self a delusion? The construct that western civilsation is built upon. The individual and its uniqueness? I think we are unique. Each of us, however separation is a delusion. The ego is a construct designed to help us make sense of the world and find reason and interest (meaning). Many good illustrations can be found in eastern philosophical and spiritual traditions and also modern psychotherapy and philosophy. Got to go, but suffice to say me next post will delve further into this and talk about my own experiences of this delusional state that we all share. Any comments or thoughts?
