I'm reallyreallyreally tired but just in case anybody's looking forward to Thursday prompts - here it goes.
The Ultimate Illusion.
For me, it's the "ego", the ultimate illusion that when I'm using the word "I", it actually means something instead of being a placeholder for initial emptiness. I more or less believe in physical world and genes and stuff, but I do not believe that there is something distinct that can be called "me". Or "you", for that matter. It's an invention to keep our bodies and minds moving even when we're exhausted and hopeless. E.g., if I didn't trust in "me" as something special that matters, I wouldn't bother to overcome myself and make this Thursday prompt which is my promise to myself. Or play nice with the people who expect me to play nice with them. With whom I expect myself to play it nice.
And why the ultimate illusion? Because I know it's an illusion and I still can't shake it.
What about yours?
