This is the dawning of the age...of the Super Ego. The celebrity culture, coupled with mass media, is helping to prepare us for this age. Now when I
use this term 'Super Ego,' the spiritual semanticist will at once shutter. Ego is bad, you see. Now this guy's talkin about a SUPER ego! How
terrible must that be! This guy's an ego maniac! I could also accurately use the terms archetypal or mythological, and this would be more soothing to
the spiritual semanticist, but I feel this term Super Ego has something important to tell us.
For aeons we have strongly attached to our identity, our ego. Upon analysis, we find this ego we are so strongly attached to, to be quite bland and
boring in most cases. The notions we create about ourselves tend to make us insignificant, bland, and typical. So this ego is not so much deserving of
attachment. Now what do I mean when I say super ego? I basically mean an ego that is incredibly grandiose and wonderful. Imagine the most perfect
identity one COULD have. Let your imagination run wild, and think of the most incredible thing you could possibly be. I mean the stuff of legend. Even
God status. There are no limits whatsoever. This is the Super Ego. Super Ego implies no particulars. The super ego might manifest as being the life of
every party who has a lot of sex. This is what likely comes to mind when you hear 'super ego,' but again, it implies no specifics. A spiritual
renunciate who decides to go live in a monastary to pursue union with God is also a manifestation of the super ego. The super ego is simply an
identity which stands out, which is unique and interesting.
The thing about the age of the super ego is that it is also, in a way, a device to dissolve the ego. Ego is rigid and fixed. One is not confined to
one super ego. The super ego is so hysterical and ridiculous, and understand these terms in a non-negative way, that it seems almost unreal on its
face. You get very into it, it is very immersive and satisfying, but it has a hint of un-reality. This un-reality is a contributor to the fact that in
the age of super ego, identity is liquid, ever-shifting. The super ego is non-personal, so when I'm playing some role of the super ego, there are
others who have, are, and will play it as well. Now when I interact with someone who is playing some super ego, they are just one manifestation of
that super ego, which is a continuity. This means that if I then interact with someone else playing the same super ego, it is essentially a
continuation of that interaction. In this age, ego is dissolved through mass manifestations of super ego. Boundaries between individuals don't exist,
because we're all playing larger themes, and there is no difference between 'different people' playing the same role.
This has been a message from a philosopher who is laying the groundwork for a spiritual, philosophic, and cultural revolution that is soon to come,
that will usher in a Golden Age of humanity beyond anything we have ever thought possible. Or at least that's the Super Ego I play.
