The ego is like a focusing lens or a reduction valve. Perhaps you could make the case it acts as a tuner.
It reduces one's awareness down to a narrow, much more finite point. Instead of a flood light, you have a laser beam.
Instead of a stream of infinite information, our ego allows us to filter and tune into the "channel" of our conscious experience.
This functions to keep us as "us". The ego serves to narrow perspective. If we didn't have a functioning ego, we might be seen as having a mental
disorder -- hearing things, seeing things, being delusional ect.
Because the ego does this on a conscious level, this is why our subconscious and supraconcious are aware of far more -- this is where "inspiration"
and creativity comes from. This is why divination methods work. All the information is contained within the whole, but it is filtered into a very
narrow, tunnel-vision-like experience for you via the ego.
Instead of hearing all radio stations at once, you only hear one -- your station.
Because every possibility to infinity is constantly being expressed by the inexpressible, the ego serves an important purpose. The purpose? It allows
and enables you to be you....unless your experience is supposed to contain ego loss that is. The universe is like that...full of paradoxes and
dead-ended logic cul-de-sacs. It keeps itself (us) running around in circles for eternity.
Basically, infinity experiencing itself in an infinite number of ways, all at the same time. And for it to be truly infinite, among those experiences
include single-purpose human lives.
