Hall of Mirrors

The ego is not the real “you”; it was inherited as part of being born a human. It basically originates from the animal world, and the evolution of consciousness happened through the primitive stages of mankind’s evolution, so it could be said that to seek enlightenment is to recapitulate the history of human evolution.
To undo the ego, one must be willing to abandon this payoff game, with its grandstanding of emotions and repetitive rehashing of data and stories to justify its positions. One will note that the ego milks every wrong and that it has no greater pleasure than to indulge in “righteous indignation.” It just “loves” that juicy positionality that has such a great payoff.
