We are conduits in the shape of humans or humanoid or bipedal life forms. Our job is to broadcast but our free will gets in the way and tries to take ownership. That’s what is known as ‘ego’. So instead of being a conduit we wind up believing these are our own thoughts then take credit for it’ importance but not its significance. Once the ego gets a hold there’s no telling where this information will wind up. The results are years and years of time wasted for nothing. Free will must be address somehow. No, that’s not right. …it is free will so no rules can apply….self control? now that’s another story.
I’m 72 and finally get it. All this time as I accuse the world of being egomaniacs……..it’s been my own all along!
