How do you explain people that are influenced by third parties and left with PTSD or debilitating mental disorders?Seems like everyone here is so shy.
Then I'll start the ball rolling.
I trust you don't mind BE.
According to Jung, the ego represents the conscious mind as it comprises the thoughts, memories, and emotions a person is aware of. The ego is largely responsible for feelings of identity and continuity - (this is taken directly from the Internet, feel free to dispute it as I don't know much abt Carl Jung and his work).
According to Spaz, ego is a man's sea of consciousness, to make it more easier for readers here, take it as ur life in a story book or life narrative.
A man's sea of consciousness can either be really small or extremely big.
Those with smaller sea of consciousness tend to live in a loop, unable to surpass many limits.
Whilst those with extremely big sea of consciousness tend to do incredibly feats easily, some even claim to have spiritual or magical powers to heal etc.
The growth of these sea of consciousness can either be self induced or through 3rd party influences, but the common factor - undergoing stress or tribulations to break through to the next level.
But it must grow.
I used "sea" because the sea is vast and in the sea, it has many islands, continents and even floating land masses such as icebergs.
And these islands or land masses represents stepping stones to another level in ur consciousness.
The bigger ur consciousness the more of these islands appear to be visible while the smaller it is the less can be seen.
For many, in reality, even having a single island is a blessing since many has shackled their own minds.
If you understand this so far, and willing to explore then I'm willing to explain further.
Otherwise it's a waste of time.
What makes you conclude the world is getting worse? Doesn't this perception dictate your reality?
