No, you can't. Having access to a switch to turn off the ego doesn't teach you how to turn it off in the absence of the switch.




Teach yourself how to turn it off.

It is already in a million pieces, each insisting at any one point in the day that it is you and none of them recognizing each other. That is where your conflict comes from.

I was talking to her about this recently - telepathically, since she blocked me on facebook last year. :D

If there isn't room here for people who stand against everything you believe in,
then what sort of a hippy free-for-all is this?

Why would you take it as a no? I didn't say that was what I did, I asked if that was what you meant.


It's just the way you said it seemed like you were making fun of it so I assumed no.

I don't know if you want your ego to entirely disappear or you'd be more like wind with words, events, and perhaps even motivation losing their connection to you and blowing right on through your being....actually that may turn you into a sage, it'll take some adjustment, but good luck.

Seclude yourself, focus on quieting your mind, live like a hermit for a bit if you can, and yes, trust me, psyches can begin to rob you piece by piece of your permanent ego as well. It just takes a lot of tripping of heroic doses to do so or if you're lucky, one super-intense life-changing trip. Ah, I'm curious of your outcome. Let us know how it goes if time serves you well in the future

A big long hit of Salvia Divinorum/Salvinorin A should give you a pretty good kick start... if you are not permanently changed after Ms. Sally is finished with you, then I don't know what to tell you.

If you're asking for our help to break your ego, you don't need our help.

But you DO need to understand that having no ego is NOT desirable. Your ego is very important, it's just ALSO very important that your ego is in line with where it should be.

You can improve your ego, but you can't get rid of it. If you had none, you'd be a babbling waste and couldn't even communicate.

Also, psychedelics do NOT break or kill your ego, they delude your ego. You may not even be able to fathom the concept of self on some drugs, but the important fact is that YOU can't fathom that. You're still you, it just short circuts some parts of your brain for a short while, in a manner that can teach those parts of your brain lasting and useful lessons.

So, psychedelic drugs are great if you want to reign in your ego, learn more about it, and gain a better perspective, but you DO need and want a healthy and whole ego.

RIP cosmoknot.

Any particular reason for all this, or should we just take you on your authority?

It depends on what meaning we give to "ego", but on my interpretation I would have thought that the absence of an ego is simply to see the world as it "is". So when I'm looking at a tree I see the leaves, trunk and branches and not the names of trees I've seen before, comparisons with other trees, how past trees made me feel, accidents i've had with past trees etc... even though I can recall that information as information if I wish. Destroying the image doesn't mean I destroy the ability of my brain to function.
Doomed.
