    While the true self is spontaneous, empathic, creative and present.

    The false self is an historical construct to do alienated work and have alienated sex.
    Dont agree

    False selves are half mad, driven creatures made to serve the military, industrial complex.

    But worse, false selves gather together to prove to one another that they are normal and to police anyone seeking to find their true self.

    While our greatest, deepest and truest love affair is with our true self.

    And be true to thyself, and it follows as night the day, thou canst not be false to any man.
    Agree

    To add my 2 cents...our negative side hurts others and brings them down, our positive side helps and lifts people up. I really have no idea where you get the distinctions between what is false and true. Sounds like someone who is just trying to repress what he doesnt like and does like. Everyone is different, to follow my desires is to be true to thy self, so squashing them is being fake. The thing is...we have a brain to find ways to be true to ourselves that dont hurt others or bring them down.

    Some people try to repress themselves and in turn repress others, some people try to grow and try to help others grow as well.

    Seems like I should be adding something to this thread and dunno what, maybe its controlled folly to think and to feel at the same time with ones true and false self.

    Sometimes an onion that peels itself loops back to the same starting point once more only to discover there is so much more.

    Thats what happens when you learn from the first time you peeled that onion back. The second time around you can shift your focus because you already know part of it. Now if you think you learned everything after one time, either your really good or you are gonna miss out on not looping back.
