Thoughts on the Problem of Self and Conventional Language Print E-mail
Written by David Holmes (Anagarika Tevijjo)   

Introduction

If we may be allowed some comments, based upon our own individual observations, once we take an experience to be “I,” we build upon this latent and inherent tendency and make the mistake of assuming a personal entity [rather than a mere agglomeration or aggregate of phenomenal experiences], and we make the mistake of building up an image of “I” and “self” (and eventually maybe even an idea of an on-going-soul-entity) and thereby create the delusion of a duality between conceiving what is going on outside externally and what is going on within experience on the inside, ? conceiving them [falsely] to be two different and extant realms of existence.
