So, first step is determine: how big is your ego? Then we need to find out how delicate it is so we know how much it needs to be propped up. Then we can just kind of go from there.


I don't have one. The dissolution of my ego happened long ago. The ego is a very recent invention, and it's hold on reality is very tenuous, and consequently it walks around imbued with fear. It feels itself to be a mouse in a world of dinosaurs.

Ego's are at the foundation are all that is wrong with the human condition.

I can post a picture of my tiny penis if you want to prove my ego has long gone.

To reiterate my previous post:

On the matter of egos:

Our unhappy addicted ego driven condition has become not simply the source of our own unhappiness that was bad enough but now its the source of great discomfort and dislocation for all life and human society on the planet. We are out of control. We are basically severely addicted to things, and cant not stop ourselves. And we know, or we should know, that there is not enough petroleum or heavy metals in the planet to give all the thing addicts all the things that we know they must have in order to be happy

We have spread this intellectual virus from pole to pole, from Turkmenistan Borneo, to the upper amazon to the Himalayas, what are we going to do about this? Well so far we've been treating this like an endless garden party, there's no serious plan on the table to deal with this at all.

Culture is a shabby lie. Well at least this culture is a shabby lie. If you work like a dog you get 260 channels of bad television and a German automobile, what sort of perfection is that? Religion is completely devalued, and consumer object fetishism is the only value that we collectively recognize. I'm sure you've seen the T-shirt that says 'he who dies with the most toys wins' That is in fact the banner under which we are all flying here. And the level of unhappiness is immense, I mean the level of unhappiness between the poor they've always been miserable, but we've created something entirely new in the human history, and utterly miserable ruling class!

Where is life carrying us? What is this all about? its is carrying us towards extinction so the rest of nature can heave an enormous sign of relief and get back to the business of whatever they are doing out there, or is it in fact carrying us towards some kind of transition?

No one of us, I think, can imagine that history could go on for another thousand years. I mean, what would it look like? At the current rate of population growth, spread of epidemic disease, rate of invention, connectivity, depletion of resources, the atmosphere… it is impossible to conceive of another thousand years of human history. History, then, is ending. History is a kind of gestation process; it’s a kind of metamorphosis; it’s an episode in the life of a species.

If you think of the simple example of metamorphosis – that of caterpillar to butterfly – we all know that there is this intermediate resting stage where the caterpillar is, for all practical purposes, enzymatically dissolved, and then reconstituted as an entirely different kind of organism, with different physical structures, different eyes, different legs, a different way of breathing; with wings, where no wings were before; with a different kind of feeding apparatus – this is what’s happening to us. History is a process of metamorphosis. It’s a pupation stage. It begins with naked monkeys, and it ends with a human machine planet-girdling interface capable of releasing the energies that light the stars. And it lasts about fifteen or twenty thousand years, and during that period the entire process hangs in the balance. It’s a period of high risk. It’s like what a butterfly is doing in a cocoon, or what is happening to a child in the womb: it’s a gestation process, where one form of life is being changed into another.

Very commendable, though unfortunately I've heard humility is also one of the criteria.

While were are on the topic of stars, flags posts and their ratios, I have also heard that Star to flag ratios or post to flag ratios of over 50:1 might mean one is a disinfo agent, the inference being one comes on here just to debunk and not start threads.



Edit - having just read your post above I agree with most of the sentiments, though complete eradication of the ego is impossible unless you are Buddha or Jesus, recognition of your own ego is key, then it is no longer ego and just an old conditioned thought patter......

Check the number of popular threads ive started here and re-think this post. :p

The fact your accusing me of being a disinfo agent makes you more likely to be one, accusing me simply for revealing your agenda!

You have an amazing post to flag or star to flag ratio, you post to flag ratio is less than one!

I'm talking about someone who say has 3500 stars and 50 flags, their star to flag ratio is 70:1. I saw one poor excuse that had about a few thousand stars and not a single flag.

Oh dear. No flags at all for that many stars must be either someone too shy to start their own threads or just a pseudo-debunker.

I feel I should come clean about the second half of this post, it was not actually my material but a quote from a youtube video I produced that has gone viral. The original part of from Terence Mckenna.

W stands for "wussy" value, and K stands for "kinky" value. Not sure where you are on the scales.......

Awesome, I'd love to hear what the algorithm for calculating "wussy" value is. I need to recalibrate mine.

"You have exceeded the maximum window of 4 hours allowed to edit your post."

Well that needs to change. Simply have a box at the bottom of the post that shows all previous versions, like wiki does, so if someone changes it you can see what they changed. Would save a lot of time for mods, I've had to ask a lot here to change youtube links that have gone dead in about ten threads.

I tried to edit my above post as the youtube link did not embed correctly.
