Like the Buddha try so hard to become mindless, am I missing something lol. Just thought it was funny. Isnt
that just basically the secret to life? So satan basically damned us all by giving us the power of thought? kind of a cruel joke if you think about it. People are always thinking too much from materialistic point of view hence why they don't see the truth. Basically you cant see your true self. Maybe its just a test of life. I know a good experiment to test it, to guaranteed results. Still need to rephrase it correctly.
Well im not religious expert, havnt opened up any religious books, or religion was brought up in my family.
Just came across reading misc posts here and there.
The id is the unorganized part of the personality structure that contains a human's basic, instinctual drives. Id is the only component of personality that is present from birth.
The ego comprises the organized part of the personality structure that includes defensive, perceptual, intellectual-cognitive, and executive functions. Conscious awareness resides in the ego, although not all of the operations of the ego are conscious. Originally, Freud used the word ego to mean a sense of self, but later revised it to mean a set of psychic functions such as judgment, tolerance, reality testing, control, planning, defense, synthesis of information, intellectual functioning, and memory.
Freud developed his concept of the super-ego from an earlier combination of the ego ideal and the "special psychical agency which performs the task of seeing that narcissistic satisfaction from the ego ideal is ensured ... what we call our 'conscience'."
The super-ego aims for perfection. It comprises that organized part of the personality structure, mainly but not entirely unconscious, that includes the individual's ego ideals, spiritual goals, and the psychic agency (commonly called "conscience") that criticizes and prohibits his or her drives, fantasies, feelings, and actions. "The Super-ego can be thought of as a type of conscience that punishes misbehavior with feelings of guilt. For example, for having extra-marital affairs."
