The Self Replicating Self

Clearly, through the most cursory observation of “evolving” egocentricity, it can be seen that the chief theme of the post-modern egocentrica mammalia has become nothing more than complete and utter boredom with itself and its habitat.
Egocentrica mammalia has reached the tippy top of Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs.” This now requires full participation in self-actualizing social scripts, and their attached grandiose self-absorbed fictional fantasies which, subsequently, causes him to become bored sheitless with himself and all his vacuous games, which only requires him to devise ever more complex and entertaining fictions to wile away the days until dead.

Egocentricity is accentuated by moving from one fictional self-actualizing preoccupation to the next. They meditate, masturbate and mindlessly meander about doing their "important" tasks, but they never quite feel “actualized” dwelling in their conjured up fictional realities that are supposed to result in "happiness" which they spend their whole life chasing up to the terminal breathe.

Egocentrica mammalia is a species that seeks ‘higher experiences’ as a means of extracting his sorry arse from the predetermined causal order that he had no “choice’ in causing and neither can he remove himself. This is a product of his delusional ‘authorship’ in which he actually believes that he has constructed a “self" through which he identifies with as an ‘authority’ on himself, completely ignorant of the fact that this makes no sense whatsoever. How can one construct a "self" that has as its chief role constructing itself?

So if childhood programming determined who and what you are, at what point did “you” take over that lofty task? And when you claimed authority over your "self" did that include dissolving all the conditioned beliefs packed up in your neuro-circuits that defined you up to that miraculous moment when you took over the job of self-development?

As a result, his actions, individually and collectively, consistently demonstrate that he neither knows who or what he is and, subsequently, has no real idea of what he should or should not be doing with the “self” he ‘thinks’ he autonomously constructed by him "self". Instead, egocentrica mammalians are ruled by pre-written self-actualizing 'scripts,' handed down over the centuries from one ignorant fool to another and pressed deeply into the brain circuits, for which the only purpose is to actualize a belief that one's life is not wasted, when obviously a scripted life is a total waste of time and egocentrics have become bored to tears with the scripts.

Hence, egocentricity has never been able to accommodate to itself based on the scripts that inform him what he should and should not be doing. But without the scripts, what the fook would he do?! He knows not...

Whereas, the rest of the natural world seems quite comfortable with its universally ordained nature, egocentricity has never been able to assimilate nature into itself, but instead, invents lofty but vacuous goals, causing him to become perpetually disgusted with himself, which only demands more complex scripting to medicate his mindless boredom.

This results in egocentrics feeling chronically compelled to “do” things to redirect and minimize their own self loathing, regardless of the value or need of the things they do, by engaging in the most inane activities focused solely on self-actualizing the nebulous, wishy-washy “I-me” construct tangled up in his neuro-circuits. This seems to give him a delusional sense of living through a unique, but completely meaningless “self” that means something to him, but doesn’t mean jack scratch to the determined causal order that simply continues to jerk his dumb arse around like a fooking puppet. 

Yet, all the while egocentrics beam with delight over the "good" choices they make, but with great gnashing of teeth and wringing of hands over their "bad" choices, denying that in a dream, there can be NO choice because a dream denies the free-will to make choices because a dream is not real and how can a fictional reality be real? (this is a tad but off topic, but felt compelled anyway)

The incessant “doing” of egocentrica mammalia is clearly a disease, since the ‘doing’ symptoms only end when he’s stone cold dead, but never does he consider that this is what is actually killing him (rather, he cackles on about all the wonderful things he will "do" in the afterlife). 

Millions of miles of indoctrinated brain circuitry make it utterly impossible for egocentrics to cease and desist from ‘doing’ sheit. Many egocentrics claim that if we all would just do this or that, we could make the world a better place, without for a second considering that it was the centuries of sheit that was “done” that fooked it all up in the first place. Maybe if egocentrica mammalian’s could finally sit down and shut-up, the world might be a better place. Alas, this is simply impossible for egocentrics, who take great pride over how many inane and senseless things they can get done in a day.

They 'do' things to improve their longevity, while inadvertently killing themselves. They do things to save the planet while at the same time destroying it. As one bright mind once put it, “they know not what they do” but, or so it seems, they can't forgive themselves for this and continue to 'do' the same things they've always done. They really can’t make up their “minds” and this is a direct result of the fact that their brains have no clear idea who the fook they are and, hence, what purpose they serve. Thus, they invent fictional purposes and heroic stories to give their meaningless and vacuous lives some sense of importance.

Yet, they will pontificate out into the stratosphere about how “awesome” and special they are, while the causal order simply snuffs them out, one by one, (or sometimes by whole lots) whenever it feels like it and for no egocentrically discernible purpose. Nevertheless, egocentrics seek to demonstrate their self-extraction from the universe by doing the most horrible things to one another not observable anywhere in the natural world. In fact, they conduct their daily lives as if completely removed from the natural order that gave them existence in the first place. Egocentricity is undeniably a “cosmic joke."

Actually, as opposed to the knowledge imbued in the causal universe, the chief ingredient of egocentricity is ignorance masquerading as “intelligence.” In the fictional egocentric world, there are no facts, only relative opinions derived from individually programmed perspectives. No matter how smart they profess to be (and they really can’t shut up about it) egocentrics are truly the dumbest species to walk the planet. While the whole of the natural world rests securely and harmoniously in the knowledge of their place within the determined causal order, egocentrics exist in a chaos of mentally conjured fictions that never seem to make them any happier with the fact of their existence, simply because the fictions deny the brute fact of their existence which came from nothing and ends in nothing. 

Yet, the causal order has not allowed them the capacity to perceive through deluded fictions, since it was that order that caused them in the first place. This raises the question as to why the universe, from which all existence unfolds, has causally ordered to 'curse' egocentrica mammalian’s in this way. 

Why have they been so deluded as to see themselves as separate from the natural order by instilling them with an abject fear of that dependency? Why do they see themselves and all their fictional realities as more sacred than the very reality that gave them life to begin with? Why did the universe require egocentrics to perceive "better" or "worse," "good" and "evil," "right" and "wrong" and then make up fantasy stories based on those differentiations which they superimpose upon the natural world in the goal of achieving "happiness"?

It seems that egocentrics are cursed by the need to see what they want to see, but never what is actually there. Because of an illusion of choice, egocentric perception is ruled by dualism in which he believes he must choose his reality and, hence, filters out any and all which does not jive with his made up nonsense. This is utterly impossible to the whole of the natural order, but egocentrica mammalia believes he is separate from that order and, hence, not governed by its laws. 

Egocentrics believe that because they construct a fictional “self,” it is contingent upon them to construct a fictional world through which to inject that self, make it move around and do ‘special’ things not contingent on the causal order.

If the causal order caused your existence, through a clear and concise chain of events that began unfolding in the universe long before you were even born, do you really think that “you” should expect anything other than what you have received so far? 

Alas, if you are an egocentric, then clearly the answer is ‘yes.’ You believe you make your own "happiness" without considering if the causal order that spawned you even knows what "happiness" is, since it is purely a social construct you make real, but cannot be found anywhere else in the entire fooking infinite universe.

However, this is only because, even though the universe caused the entirety of all reality to exist, you somehow have come to believe you made your "self" and that you continue to construct your "self" completely detached from the natural order that made you exist in the first place.

If the sun, the stars, the earth, the ground you walk on, the air you breathe and the very body you inhabit were produced by a determined causal order, that you have had no ability to alter or change in anyway whatsoever, from whence did you get the silly notion you had anything to do with creating your "self"? Or that you have some inherent ability to thwart, redirect or alter the very course you are now on, based on a "self" you did not make?

The Predetermined Causality of Egocentric Madness

Someone told me that he believed we live in a “mad world.” Yet, has the symbolic egocentric world ever been other than “mad”? Has there ever been a time, from the moment homo erectus identified a “self” in his noggin, that the fictionally ordered egocentric world was not absurd to the point of insanity? Has there ever been a century when egocentricity has not slaughtered other egocentrics or destroyed the environment to satisfy its “interests”? Has there ever been a time when superstitiously paranoid belief systems have not been employed to generate and manage egocentric fear? Was there ever a time in which egocentrics had not sought out their own pleasure at the cost of other egocentrics and the world they inhabit? 

Granted, the big brain of egocentric mammalia has afforded him the technology to kill and destroy in enormously statistical numbers, but the basic nature of egocentricity has always been inclined to do so, regardless of the tools at his disposal. 

Yet, for centuries, egocentrics have also sought out ways to moderate their inherent need to consume and destroy everything in sight, but all to no avail. They have invented complex moral codes and laws to reduce death and destruction. But fictional moralities are eventually bent and twisted to support egocentric tendencies and destruction continues on unabated. When you invent, and seek to thrive, through a fictional world, that has absolutely no resemblance to the predetermined causal order of the universe, madness in the form of death and destruction cannot be eliminated from the fictional constructs and must necessarily increase as the perceived world is engaged through imaginary stories claimed to reflect "reality" and “truth.”

Death is a valuable commodity to the egocentric mammalia and this is in direct opposition to the natural world which barely gives it a thought up until the moment it strikes. But egocentrics employ death to achieve imaginary goals, because egocentrics will do anything to survive in an imaginary world.

The need to exist gives death the utmost prominence as collective leverage to motivate egos to engage all manner of absurd actions and behaviors. The threat of physical annihilation provokes individual egocentrics to engage in fictional socio-cultural games as if they were real and necessary to existence. This places egocentricity in a constant state of tension between the belief that what they must do is both patently stupid and absolutely necessary. This state of chronic tension is referred to as “anxiety” and it is endemic to post-modern egocentric society.

Anxiety is the primordial egocentric state of existence and it is directly consequent to the fear of death. It sits heavy upon every mood you experience and even haunts your dreams. Egocentrics will do anything to relieve themselves of this existential weight, even if it means believing in fictional concepts that are laughably ridiculous. 

Egocentric anxiety rises and falls in correlation with the ego’s sense of control. The more control asserted upon one's fictions, the less anxiety and when egocentrics experience a lack of control of their fictional constructs, anxiety increases. Nevertheless, in both situations, anxiety is omnipresent within the brain circuitry and self-enhancing fictional constructs are inadvertently wired up to survival-fear circuitry giving the constructs a reality that is not apparent in the causal reality of the universe egocentrics exist in and through.

Egocentrics require anxiety as a measure of the quality of their existence. Simply examine the numerous conditions in your own life that evoke anxiety symptoms. Hence, all your actions are directed to minimizing intensity, but you are never without anxiety. In fact, your entire existence is modulated and dumbed-down by your valiant attempts to avoid experiencing anxiety. Each and every action you engage in daily is an attempt to modulate the anxiety of social existence.

If you had no experience of anxiety, would you continue to participate in the daily grind of mind-numbing meaningless social games? Of course not, because without anxiety you most likely would find yourself living in the moment, engaging reality in ways that all your needs would be easily met through highly creative methods of being in-reality and allowing the universe to direct that course. But your socio-culturally programmed anxiety will always keep this fact from awareness.

Often you cannot even identify the cause of your chronic daily tension and this is because the cause has settled deep down within dormant neuro-circuits we refer to as the unconscious or subconscious, which itself has been socially programmed. Hence, without the ability to identify causes, you have no idea what methods might be employed to diminish the symptoms, because the programming packed up in your skull has completely preordained every action you take and the anxiety inherent in all social conditioning is pervasive to the very “self” you identify with as incontrovertibly “you.” 

So who are “you”? Are you no more than a victim of a world that you have been taught exists to serve you, but that has beaten you down into manageable pulp, easily shaped by social forces that seem to surround you, suffocate and press in on you? Why does anxiety seem to direct all your actions? 

Anxiety is a product of guilt and egocentric mammalia is essentially a guilt motivated creature. The natural world has absolutely no renditions of good or bad, right or wrong, but the entirety of egocentric existence is anxiously fueled by that dualism as opposed to the mere duality of the material world with its light/dark, up/down, inside/outside, etc, etc. Does nature perform “evil” acts? Does the universe perceive itself as sometimes “right” and sometimes “wrong”? Does the natural world punish itself when it is “bad” and reward itself for being “good”? Does the universe exhibit anxiety symptoms when it fails to complete all the tasks on its “To Do” list?

Only dualism discriminates between these fictional constructs and is the basis of suffering. Duality, as opposed to dualism, is the actual reality you engage with. Dualism is your attempt to conceptualize reality into fictional categories. Hence, rather than fully engage the predetermined causal order, you seek to transcend or transform “what is” to meet your conditioned expectations originating from your socio-cultural indoctrinated programming of good/bad and right/wrong. 

Nevertheless, because you cannot extract your “self” from a causally influenced reality, any effort is pointless, because your encountering the truth of this is predetermined long before your birth. 

So relax…. kick back and just keep doing whatever it is you do, because in a predetermined causal reality, nothing you do is good or bad, right or wrong. How could it be when every choice you make has been causally influenced and, hence, predetermined long before you were even born. 

Nothing is ever out of place or not in sequence. That doesn’t mean some things that happen to you won't royally suck arse, but only because "good" and "bad" neuro-circuits are still directing perception and there has, as of yet, been no cause to redirect that otherwise.

Hence, your madness is predetermined....

Your Fictional "New World Order"

There seems to be a lot of talk these days about some elite conspiracy to create a “New World Order”

Yet, the history of egocentric mammalia has been nothing less than a collective endeavor of extracting itself from the natural order, as ordained by universal causality, by neurotically inventing fictional world orders for which to dissociate itself from a causal determined universe that denies free-will. Hence, in order to maintain and reinforce a free-willed illusion of control, egocentricity becomes more deeply transfixed in its fictional realities and this provides an illusion of being removed from the causal order of the universe.
Through the psycho-symbolism of superimposing abstract concepts upon a material world, egocentricity seeks to dissociate itself from the natural world order. Obviously, dissociation from the determined causality of your existence is utterly impossible, since the universe allows you to exist and death tends to have a way of proving this rather consistently and without question.

Nevertheless, egocentricity gets all jiggy with the psycho-emotional experience of being dissociated from the natural order through symbolic fictions that seem to glorify its existence above mere causal determinism.
But a symbolically ordered reality can never be inherently real and egocentricity has had little success in dissociating from its cause, by chronically propagating the belief that egocentricity is cause of itself and its world. Nevertheless, the tenuous fragility of your beloved symbolic world could crumble at any second into a million scattered pieces with even the slightest provocation, simply because it exists as a fantasy in your head. Fully understanding this is often referred to in the east as an “awakening,” but in the west we call it “schizophrenia” or "delusional" and immediately prescribe drugs.

You can even note this phenomena in your personal life in which the slightest look of “The Other” could send your “awesome” day spiraling into the netherworld of suspicion and paranoia. Or a word, uttered in anger, could smash to smithereens the “positive” mood you’ve worked so diligently at protecting and preserving. Such is the utter fragility of egocentrica mammalia in its belief that it constructs and controls its personal universe.

Some claim just such a “crash” is quickly approaching for all of egocentrica collectiva, which relies on symbolic abstraction to transfer its own superficially fictional meanings upon the natural world. However, it does appear we may have to experience many more years of inventing senseless conceptual dribble, through which to magically medicate the egocentric condition, before all egocentrica mammalians simply go stark raving mad trying to make sense of all the fictional contradictions and hypocrisies that make up their symbolic reality.

Egocentricity will essentially crumble in upon itself through its own chronic schizophrenic babbling about which fictional world is more “real” and “true,” without ever questioning the fictional concepts of “real” and “true.”

The essential purpose of all technology is to allow for egocentric dissociation from the very universe that gave egocentric mammalia existence. Egocentrics demands a “better world” for which to glorify the sacred goals of its otherwise meaningless existence.

Every year some “visionary” pundit explains how it’s possible for the future of mankind to be better if only we simply make this or that change. However, as with all symbolic realities, it’s easy to discern how egocentric progress is actually heading for a train crash of symbolic chaos and this becomes  more apparent with each passing day.

In this post-modern world it’s really not that hard to see that in a symbolic reality, anything can mean anything, depending on who says it and how many invest belief in it. It’s just that simple.
For instance, if the President of the United States (a fiction) claims that “drones” are necessary to keep the country (fiction) safe from terrorism (fiction), egocentrics will never question the fictions, but only the degree the facts (“drones) should be managed to protect the fictions.
Nevertheless, the natural order of the causal universe requires no control or governance, because it exists as fact. Its laws simply unfold and regulate reality through a general functioning that has no egocentric meanings or concepts to make it “real” or “true.” But because egocentricity wishes to separate itself and not be victim to the causal determinism of the natural world, it constructs imaginary realities that require fictional governments. The fictional realities of egocentric herds must have limits and this is facilitated through the fictional demands imposed by fictional governments.
Governments are popping up everywhere, imposing a seemingly endless array of spurious laws and utterly absurd rules to regulate your fictional experiences and, because they govern fictional realities, they too must themselves be fictional. Nevertheless, egocentric mammalia demands a fictional world through which to emancipate itself from the causally determined universe and this requires numerous fictional governments and governmental departments, committees, bureaus, offices, agencies, etc, etc, for which to control and limit symbolic egocentric fantasies. Although such fictions have no actual reality, we cannot deny that the causal determinism of the universe has allowed these fictions to assume a reality simply through the "Illusion of Control."
Egocentrics both demand and abhor governments. They live in a dualistic tension between wanting absolute freedom to do whatever they wish, but with a need to limit and structure to their busy scurrying about doing stupid stuff. Like little lambs they bleat and whine about wanting more control from their governments, while demanding fewer restrictions to manage their personal egocentric delusions of grandeur. 
The dilemma is that governments are made up of these same fearful little lambs. You cannot have honesty in a fictional reality and, as a means of controlling your fictions, governments have extracted themselves even further by constructing their own fictional realities as a means of controlling the fictions you idolize as “real” and “true.”
Note how the causal universe always has very discernible consequences that are clear and concise each and every instance. Yet, in a fictional reality consequences occur based on the power of the fiction. We can see this in the post-modern world today. National government has now become an immensely powerful fiction that proclaims itself “true” above and beyond any other fictions conjured up the egocentric masses. It has extracted itself not only from the fictions of the egocentric herd, but also manufactured its own fictions that are essentially immune to any consequences. Hence, it couldn’t give a rat’s ass about what you think, because it has transcended your fictional expectations almost completely and thus, does whatever it wants, whenever it chooses, without consequence. Other than bleat and whine about it, fictional governments recognize that to protect your fictional fantasies, there is very little you can do to limit their own.
For example, the fiction of the Federal Reserve is not actually protected by a historically fictional “charter,” but by the fact that it will pursue the fiction of monetary value exactly as all other egocentrics do, only on a much greater scale. Hence, egocentrics may complain to holy hell of an abuse of power, but all egocentrics desperately support the fiction of “money” and want as much for themselves as they can get.
This can readily be seen with governments in this post-modern era, in which egocentrics complain that the fictional powers granted to fictional governments is being fictionally abused through fictional constructs egocentricity has originally supported as a means to control, limit and structure the fictional fantasies of the egocentric mammalian herd.
But in a fictional government, fictionally elected by a herd of fictionally self-caused egocentrics, there is really nothing that can be done because the fictional government now sees you as a fiction and itself as more real, true and completely necessary. Hence, it can easily avoid consequences which the fictional egocentric collective herd may demand it face. It merely need justify its fictions and you can just shut the fook up, which most of the egocentric herd conveniently does as expected as a means of preserving their own fictional realities psychologically constructed through the Illusion of Control. They will never fully analyze how much of their lives they actually control, since the conclusion could only result in utter despair.
You must have seen this coming? For centuries the fictions have been piling atop one another constructing an incredibly ludicrous, but powerfully persuasive tower of babel, in which you now can no longer claim your fictional “civil rights” or any right to a fictional “privacy.”

Popes and presidents, democracies and dictatorships, corporations and consumers, etc, etc, these fictions are simply made up out of thin air. The conduct of your life is entirely based on your investment in fictions and you are so deeply invested that you have not the means nor the brain circuitry to perceive fictions as fictional.

Indeed, the causal universe has ordained egocentrics to exist in fictional realms of meaningless fantasy and to stress and strain, grit and grind over the self-imposed limits of those self-constructed fictions. But there are those who neither fight the injustice of the fictions nor participate in emphasizing the fictional as real.

Yet, alas, to egocentrics, these folks are fictional…

The Non-Duality of Causal Determinism

The free-willies claim that your thoughts create reality, so you better be damn careful what ya think. 

This raises the question, did the dinosaurs "think" themselves into extinction? (if only they had read “The Secret” or Deepak Chopra). In fact, I often notice my dog intently staring at me and I wonder “okay, what reality are you thinking me into biotch?” Since, obviously, her reality for me is much different than my reality for me (come to think of it, I often find myself giving her Milk Bone’s without wanting to).

Does nature ‘think’ its reality into being? If not, then why do egocentric’s ‘think’ they have something over nature? Are they not a part of the natural order? Are they separate from the universe that caused them into existence? 

The problem with “thought” created reality is that, deep down in your cranial cavity within a million miles of neuro-circuitry, you have many downright nasty subconscious thoughts that you’re not even aware of and, if thought created reality were even a remote possibility, there’d probably be alota dead bodies around you. But I'm just saying…

Egocentrics are essentially narcissistic by nature and they want everything to be as they say it should be. Hence, they’re all running around yapping and nipping at the heels of reality like a pack of neurotic Pomeranian's, gnashing their teeth and demanding everything be other than what it is. Nevertheless, the universe has ordained it thus and thusly it must be, simply because the causal universe couldn't give a spit what you think "your" reality should be. 

But, does egocentric mammalia ever thank the universe for its egocentricity and all the happy horse sheit that existence makes real? Nope. Not even a nod. Instead, egocentrics construct symbolic fantasies to make reality something it is not and never has been. Nevertheless, it seems reality doesn’t much care as it just continues being reality regardless of the symbolic fictions egocentrica mammalians superimpose upon reality to deny the brute fact of what is.

From the moment of the Big Bang, (long before you were born, by the way) a causally determined reality has unraveled (referred to as “time”) and every moment has been entirely influenced by the moment before, right up to and continuing on after, the moment egocentrica mammalia insisted he had a ‘self’ and required the “thoughts” of that ‘self’ to be owned by exclusively by him, thereby, resulting in his both loving and loathing the chaotic sheit that pops up in his skull. 

Although we’re talking about millions of years, this love/hate relationship was also predetermined as a result of the Big Bang, since the one major pattern easily perceived as a product of the emergent, unfolding world, is "duality." Hence, a ‘self’ inhabited egocentric brain must both love and hate itself, intermittently, moment to moment and the harder you attempt to drown yourself in positive thoughts, the more intense will be the onslaught of negativity.

Not to mention that every time you ‘think’ you make a conscious decision, millions of “subconscious” neuro-circuits are influencing what decision you make entirely outside of your ability to even know what subconscious thoughts are influencing the decision you seem to be making in the moment. 

Is it any wonder why you often think of your 'self' as a stupid moron? But no worries, it’s not your fault. You had no free-will in sculpting your egocentric subconscious hell hole and there’s circuits firing off in there that you wouldn’t even want to bring home to mama. 

Experiences impacted your body and were stored in the brain as neuro-circuits. Hence, this very fact negates an autonomous “self” from the gitgo, since there are circuits in your grey matter that will result in specific interactions with your world that you can do nothing to alter simply because these circuits are outside the purview of conscious awareness. You don’t “know” they’re there, but they’re crashing against the rocks of every conscious experience you encounter, making it other than what it is. But that is part of what is too, since nothing escapes the causal determinism of the universe that made you.

Nevertheless, egocentrics can’t help but think they make volitional choices not influenced by anything but their own autonomous free-will. Such is the delusional nature of the fiction you call “I-me.” But this fiction is your natural endowment and if the causal order didn’t want you to have it, then you’d be sheiting in the woods along with the rest of the natural world.

Obviously, this means there are no random events or coincidences. Everything “happens” as it must, based on prior influences that had to occur, and is certain to happen as only it can, based on preceding antecedents. 

Every experience arises in association with a preceding experience and “you” have never had a choice in this, but you are completely unaware of the patterns that have impacted upon your grey matter. However, there are a rare few in history that have attained the capacity to understand this and, obviously, this was not in their power to achieve, simply because nothing need be done except what you’re doing right now in this moment.

Experiencing the non-duality of causative determinism is not a choice and so, it requires no effort at all. It just comes upon you one day and you think, “Huh? No! really….Dafuq!” (maybe not those exact words).

Problems will seem to arise, however, because all packed up in your neuro-circuitry are electrochemical belief currents firing off impulses you call “thoughts” and many of those “thoughts” seem to require you do grandiose things to emphasize your specialness and separateness from the unfolding natural order. This is a product of socio-cultural programming that you had no choice in learning, but that allowed you miles of neuro-circuits necessary to reinforce that your choices and decisions are not causally predetermined and that you actually make autonomous choices completely free from the influence of the universe. 

Yet, egocentrics actually are programmed to believe that the Big Bang unfolded a billion different manifest processes, except egocentricity. You believe the ludicrous idea that you make your “self,” completely free of universal causality and “you” actually believe you sculpt your egocentricity to your own specifications.

Without the Big Bang to kick start millions of years of causally determined progress, you would not exist. But egocentrics have extracted or emancipated themselves from this predetermined flow and, hence, they cannot reap the rewards of flowing with it, but must flow against it. It doesn’t matter what they ‘choose’ to do in this regard, because they will do what the universe has determined no matter how intense that suffering may be as they grit and grind over how reality, or the “world” they experience, “should” be something other than what it is being in the moment. Hence, we worship the historical visionaries of the world, whose great ideas haven’t even made the slightest dent in what the universe ordains for egocentrics.

When this understanding comes upon you, you’ll begin to see that one can never claim to  have wasted time or wasted their “life,” since in a causally determined universe, time is always utilized exactly as it must. Did you do absolutely nothing constructively productive today? Not to worry, because if "you" were not supposed to be a lazy bum today, you would never have been one. 

The non-duality of causal determinism can be a refreshing transcendence from guilt and anxiety for those who one day realize it. It smashes to smithereens all your conditioned ideas of what your “life” should be like. It allows the past to recede farther and farther from view, because it is only guilt that keeps the past alive. What anxiety could be experienced when one fully understands the causal certainty of a future that egocentricity cannot alter and any successful attempts at altering reality was preordained anyway. 

You just think “you” made the right choice when, in fact, no other choice could have been made but the one you made, contrary to all your gritting and grinding over what choice is best. It’s an absolute guarantee that you will make it, no matter what the consequences. 

Of course, while reading this, based on your programmed neuro-circuitry, you’re most likely squirming like a worm on hook. But no worries, the non-duality of causal determinism is not yours to “achieve.” You can no more make the experience happen, then you can make egocentricity disappear (which many have been trying to do for centuries, but to no avail as egocentricity seems to burrow deeper into the neurons causing nastier messes each year).

When you understand that you are cause of nothing, there comes an incredible lightness of being and you can stop all that incessant steering, letting the boat go where it will, which is obviously right where the universe wants it. 

Unfortunately, the universe is not a democracy. It follows the Law of Certainty and everything that has happened to you in your life, had to happen exactly as it did. There can be no mistakes in a causally determined universe of certainty. Yet, for those with the adequate brain circuitry, the patterns can easily be seen, because the circuits fail to filter perception, allowing you to see the big picture up close and personal.

Yes, Virginia, there is an ego, but there has never been a “you” to make it go.
