Are you talking about some form of reincarnation, and the thought that if it exists, that we loose awareness of our previous life?

I think he's also saying that we are the cause of the deception ('father of lies').
If this is the case I like to think of our existence being akin to a video game or watching a movie. When you watch a movie you become absorbed by it and also suspend your disbelief. You don't spend the whole time thinking to yourself that what you're watching is just a film, the people in it only actors etc. Only once the movie is finished do you remember who you are.
It may be that Life is similar and is either a form of entertainment or education (or edutainment ) for our souls.
