Lynn, you went with a car, but you could go with a Dexter reference, too. I can take all my pieces-parts out and set them aside one at a time in an attempt to Know Self, and when I'm done and all has been set aside, I am left with No-Self. But, I have a mess on the floor.
Greetings,
I love Dexter, so it works for me. LOL
Many people think of constructing the self as being greater than the sum of its parts/pieces.
Only a few are brave enough to de-construct the self to the point that they see without the parts/pieces there is no self.
Either way, I am still (and always have been) an absolute mess. LOL
Thanks for reading and responding.
