If there is someone on this board that is psychologically unstable.... weak boundries, (perhaps from the kinds of neglect or abuse we mention here)
and are in the process of trying to construct an ego, through which they can interact with others, be able to be an active part of society, have a
job, pay bills, experience "objective" love (in which two separate people experience touchign each others' skin boundries) ,
then if you were able to convince them to reject that fragile newly constructed sense of self and boundry,
then they would again be handicapped in society- unable to have relationships (for a relation necessitates two separate things to relate with each
other), unable to work (for how can I do this when there is no I?), to communciate effectively (how can I tell you what I feel, need, want, intend, if
there is no I? ).
The psy hospitals are full of people whose consciousness is in that state of herenowoneness. Except we call them "Catatonic", or "autistic" or
"stupid" or other terms which suggest there is nothing inside. (Because we do not see they are everything inside).
This is a reality of matter, you are a separate being here, with a physical body that is able to push keys on a keyboard, and others are different
than you- they might not need to have their ego destroyed, they might be in a process of trying to build one.
You can't respect others unless you recognize they are "other".
I doubt that anything you write here will have such an influence on people who have a strong sense of self and are very ego-centric..... it can only
have a potential effect upon those whose ego is fragile yet, and vulnerable. (you do not know who here is presently posting from a psychiatric
hospital, for example!)
-and maybe I assume it is understood, but shouldn't- this is especially a problem for females, who run into some serious trouble being sexually
violated when they do not have that sense of boundry....
