Everything is fake... including our sense of self


Since March 2020 our old habits and pursuits are finished. Suddenly, boom! We are with a mask on our face. 😡 

No denying it now, the lockdown is going on and everything is being exposed. All of the darkness and evil that we were ignoring for generations are coming out to the bright light. We are now witnessing a great fakery with it's last illusion - the illusion of freedom.

We have found ourselves surrounded by lies.

In article, Everything is Fake: Top 40 Pieces of Fakery in Our World, published by Waking Times 5 years ago, it is said that our world is filled with an extraordinary amount of lies, deception, disinformation, misinformation, fraud, facades, mirages, propaganda and brainwashing.

What the author has missed is the most important fake item... "I am" sense is fake, being a "person" is fake.  

 

Look at a photo of yourself as a teenager and it’s likely you see traces of the same person with the same personality as you are today. Well, you are not the same person, over the time your personality changes completely. This is what recent study of personhood has proven.

The article, Our personalities change beyond recognition from 14 to 77 is very interesting. The longest personality study of all time, published in Psychology and Aging suggests that over the course of a lifetime, just as your physical appearance changes and your cells are constantly replaced, your personality is also transformed beyond recognition.

Personality refers to your characteristic patterns of thought, emotion, and behavior, together with the psychological mechanisms behind those patterns. Your patterns of thought, emotions, and behavior are drastically altered over the decades, so you cannot truly be considered the same person in old age as you were as a teenager.

Somebody has sold you the idea that you were born and that memory stays very firm with you. Initially, you did not have this memory but your mother or somebody else rammed it down your throat. Subsequently, this concept was reinforced with steady effort like a driving a nail into a wall.

The "I am" sense is false, it just appears to be here and now.

On this basic "I am" feeling, or memory of presence, you have created a grand 'I am the person' idea. But this is a mental state and does not last. It comes and goes like all other states. The illusion of being the person is here, only because it is not investigated. Non-investigation is the thread on which all the states of mind are based.

Do whatever you want to do in your life but be detached by understanding because whatever you're doing is bullshit. Things, events, people and yourself exist only in your imagination.

It is impossible to perceive the truth, you can only see the fake as fake, that is all that you can do, and seeing that helps you return to what is real.
