Do you agree that existence is co-dependent, co-originated, interconnected, and impermanent?
Do you agree that we experience superficial separation and individuality through relativity, perspective, and subjectivity?
Do you agree that we experience no separate self, stillness, peace, and unity through mindfulness, meditation, and understanding?
How do you reconcile the experience of "separation" with the experience of "no separate self"?
We can say "it is what it is", or "this is because that is", but how do such concepts actually address the state of existence or mankind?
Instead of western, eastern, or Freudian concepts of ego, I have gnosis of Ego as the mechanism which casts the illusion of separation.

No matter how you look at it,ego is a must for us just like love and hate.
Oh and none of us had the same beginning. Evolution states that we came from different areas of the world from different animals while religion states that we also had different origins.
The standard of threads on ATS is becoming pathetic.
That "I" which says, "I have gnosis of Ego" is the "ego". Do you see this? 'You' are not separate from "ego", because 'you' are "ego". That which is 'beyond' "ego" has no qualities and thus cannot say anything about "ego". Effectively you are saying, "I have knowledge that I cause my own delusion", is this too, then, not delusion as well?
