Egos shape the world we perceive by reflecting our fears. And we believe that this projected world egos refer to is reality. But it's not. What truly is is extremely difficult for humans to fathom. Instead we turn to walls of images, representations, concepts, beliefs, opinions, "knowledge" which fascinate us to the point of preventing us to live and leaving us only the option to survive by proxy in a fake world. What is is not what we perceive. What we perceive is ego-created. {jy}
