Ego is a powerful protector for individuals who need psychological safety and continum in their self building.

However, modern life and technology are making most of those protections obsolete and/or counter-productive. That is why, counter-intuitively, either i) pathologically twisted people are rising to power positions, and ii) the individual and its self is under attack from the system.

What will evolution be ? Maybe getting rid of the self alltoghether and creating a post-human, or reinforce self and go forward with that route.

Interesting times.

Time to build.
