wheels on the bus...

"By simple definition, to accuse someone of 'ego' is, in fact, egotistical."

..But isnt that just another accusation ?
Aren't  i now , accusing someone of accusing the accusers ?

I think the term 'ego' is thrown around as if it represents ones individual identity.

I disagree.

What about you ?

Your ego exists whether or not I or anybody else says it does, or even whether or not everybody else besides you is dead. :satansmoking:

That isn't what i asked , but i still disagree with you.

Actually.. when the ego attacks others , when it compares itself to others , when it judges other external entities and creates enemies >> it strengthens its sense of self.

To be more precise.. without external entities, it wouldn't even be able to  recognize its own existence.
