    Do you think every individual argues from a strictly ego-based frame of mind?

    You see, this is not really a question, it is putting words in my mouth, it is called a leading question.

    So you see you are just playing an ego game with me.

    I'm not putting words in your mouth but I confess I'm operating under some assumptions. If you could clarify where you're coming from then perhaps we can come to a mutual understanding.

    There are more things than mutual understanding. There is contrast. There is counter-point. There is harmony and dis-harmony. There is inspiration sparking off inspiration. There is reading and misreading.

    I understand though that you want mutual understanding. If we reached a mutual understanding, how would this make you feel? And what would you like to do next?

    I would feel a sense of harmony and like we could obtain some sort of mutual objective.

    What mutual objective would you like?

    That we can argue in favor of at least one similar perspective.

    Do you want us to work towards finding a similar perspective or do you have a perspective in mind?

    I think we could gain progress if you answered post #91 from a literal perspective. I know you have a preference for the metaphorical, and so do I, but I tend to rely on a literal, common sense method of communicating with others. I believe you can do it, at least for a moment.

    No, I think that is limited, defensive and boring. The ego is important for control but needs something to control, and the id and the superego provide the life of the mind.

    The id and the superego are the horses and the ego is charioteer.
