"ego trap"

Now, there's an interesting term. It's a paradox. I could tell you all about it in person, but on the internet, it's just not possible. A popular way of describing it is a monkey with its hand caught in a jar, grasping a fruit, but that is overly simplistic. One could even say that perhaps it is "the forbidden fruit." To resolve the riddle, one must transcend the words. Even those who have had near-death experiences have not done this, although they've come close. It is not something one can tell a person; it must be experienced. One could say we "fell" into the left hemisphere of our brain.

Knowing is light and light hides what is known. Only in the darkness can you see the stars.
