Ego

There is a spectrum of the abilities of  “extending the skin of one’s ego” to include others.  

Alan Watts described extending it to include the entire universe … Nathan tells a similar story to me … Trump is trying to convince Republicans that he can do it for America,  Sadam Hussein did it for a long time in IRAQ, … as did Hitler for the Third Richt ,  and Charles De Gaul for France.  If you are extending it far out, and you really don’t have that ability, then infact, you are being delusional.  

After all, this skin is an arbitrary boundary, porous or permeable, transparent or opaque,  separating as it does, what is within from what is without … what is me, from what is other than me.   You might put it in your “group abstract domains” … i might say tag metaworld … it is a story told and believed (or not ) by other people … ontologically it is quite like the price of bread.

meta is a curious prepositional syllable for making abstractions & words which lead away from direct experience. enjoy.
