The Ego

About: ego -revolver 2005 movie - youtube

While Anthroposophy acknowledges the existence of a purified Ego composed of the Spirit-Self, Life-Spirit & Spirit-Man this is great for explaining the politics of the day & nationalistic inclination to engage in wars.  There are many contributors to this thought throughout the short youtube brought to Facebook by Werner Erhard. For further info, Anthroposophy wise, see the Ahrimanic-Luciferic doubles in all the bodies for comfort, eh?

Well the particular quote you highlighted from the movie, "The ego is the worst confidence trickster we could ever figure, we could ever imagine.", is pretty much true, perhaps even for me.  But not all the quotes are true for me, and i am almost totally sure that they vary considerably from individual to individual.  The ego being a thing that does not generalize all that very well. I claim that is the very point of it .
There were lots of quotes - it was all quotes - this was the one that started the movie. The Ego from the materialistic & psychology point of view - is quite generalizable . Freud made his reputation on such. The RWG is a great example of one of the programs which uses the individual in almost everybody. Being special is also one of the programs - see #BofNK if you doubt such.

P.S. the Double is skillful!

well the so called "RWG" is a fine example of how different individuals can be.  also there are so very many different ways to feel special, that it almost is a travesty to lump them all together by one word.   but sure, as you imply, anything can be generalized.  some things the more than others.  me, all i am saying, is that as things go, the ego is on the low end of that spectrum.  you might even agree with me if you were able to try some different ones on and see how they felt .
Yep, thanks for illustrating the RWG is the same all over again & quite a trikster when it comes to masquerading as a Seth.

The Double is very interesting.

well, if i am peculiar, it is not at your expense ... though it might appear that way to you since when you think you are a hammer everything must needs be  a nail.   me seeing me masquerading as me does not stop when i see the masquerade or seeing Seth as just another masquerade of the same masquerade

Word salad for breakfast, eh?

not really ... it reads true to me ... to you it is a salad because you don't want to think it.
Well then derp on ... this thing looks really hairy: (very few things am I afraid to think - particularly things you come up with) , though sometimes your point of view & language is faulty & most always a tangent to something I am talking about - case in point is this.

... or is "The Double" just the infinite regress of reflected self awareness .... err ... with a bit of preference and grandness presumed associated with one iteration?
Probably not. You might read Dostoevsky's The Double


i wonder if the movie does it justice.
Still missing point.

robotic, but ... that's probably what the rwg double would say.
..
my "well, if i am peculiar, it is not at your expense ... though it might appear that way to you since when you think you are a hammer everything must needs be  a nail. " ... was far clearer than the other words.

they still read very true and poignant. 

the other part of the salad words are harder to compose and align with reality as a meditation.


Your words then do not compute.  I never think that you are particularly peculiar & rarely if ever would such be at my expense.

sigh!   ... like i said, when you believe the primary function of your ego is to be a hammer ... then everything i do will look like a nail ... it won't matter what i do at all. 
Nobody believes that except perhaps you.

Well bear in mind that i am thinking that sentence in the context of a Right Wrong game.   By definition, that game is one person being right at the other's expense at being wrong.  When something is strange to you, goes tilt in your mind, and you think, "that just doesn't compute", then you could reasonably assume that if you were inside the mind that thought the thought truly, it would feel "peculiar" to you.  That was what i meant.  But, of course, it is so very easy to just "not understand" the thought at my expense.
You are certainly not peculiar in playing the right-wrong game one of billions of humans that play every hour. Nothing "goes tilt" in my mind except when I have misjudged gravity.  You on the other hand seem to have a "tilting" at windmills natural argumentativeness.


Well when you switch the references in my phrases to mean things that they do not, you are not thinking the same thought as i thought.  Like trains passing in the night going opposite directions ... like random paths of projectiles through the chaos of an explosion ... incoherent ... irrelevant ... and useless.  

Sigh!
Yep, you completely fucked up the point of this item for your own Ego purposes.


well, actually, i think i am quite on point ... and even your particular point.  This is the very nature of ego ... even in politics ... even with a politician identifying his ego with that of the country he leads.   But maybe you should transport yourself into a universe where only your ego and some utopian ego obtains ... then you will not have to deal with me ... and my peculair thoughts which get thought  so very wrong in your head. 

incidentally if you don't want my commentary on any item, just tag it "no comments" and i will respect your intentions.
.. or delete them.  Anyway, you get irritated sounding when I don't talk about your meanderings & now you just got ....... snotty! What else does your DOUBLE have in store maybe the double needs to take a shit?
