On Ego

  1. Ego is a divine grant, allowing the direction and enfolding of consciousness back on itself
  2. As such, ego is the only known mechanism by which consciousness is capable of being directed out of enmeshment with the environment and into transcendence and unison with the divine
  3. In accordance with the universal fractal, ego is born, grows in a way commensurate with circumstance and nurturance, and ultimately dies; this cycle does not necessarily correspond in lockstep with the biology that houses it
  4. Ego is the only thing in the known universe capable of denying what is
  5. Therefore, ego is the only obstacle to knowing
  6. Therefore, truth is relative commensurate with the extent to which we are fused with ego
  7. Ego is not the enemy
