I am saying that ego is only a function of focused material reality.. it is a mental construct of the sense of 'self' or individual subjective reality and the need to protect it. When one is sleeping ego is not present.

Furthermore "ego" is only at it's strongest in the "BETA" brainwave, which composes the bulk of our waking reality; such as when we are having a conversation, shaking someone's hand, requires a certain focus on material reality. This state is ego dominant. As we go into alpha or meditative state we see that ego can become transparent or similar. With the theta and delta resting and sleeping states ego is not present.

It is my theory that ego is a tool, a mental filter if you will, a necessary lens for the subjective experience on the physical realm, but it is certainly not a pre-requisite for experience, as experience can be gained on many planes of existence, completely devoid of any trace of ego. Ego is just a natural function of the human brain in the 3rd dimension, a manifestation of our fears in a way.. but the point is not ego death, but ego transcendence, as it is a part of us for a reason...like everything... to be learned from.

I must say, I like ego land. I'm glad this 4th dimensional stuff doesn't exist.

you mean you are glad that your ego thinks it doesn't.
Just because you are not experiencing something does not mean it does not exist.

"you mean you are glad that your ego thinks it doesn't.
Just because you are not experiencing something does not mean it does not exist. "

Ego loss is crazy...I never know what to think of it. On one hand it seems "right" and like something I "know" while it's happening...but as soon as I come back, I start to wonder if it was just a result of being way too fucked up. It's definately a unique and spiritual experience to say the least.
