Annals of Consciousness: More Bang For Your Buck

drawing: Sigmund Freud

What a shattering insult finitude is the ego! Despite claims to the contrary all organic and for that matter inorganic matter partakes of  the impulse to individuate. The condition of being separate and peculiar in order to possess some form of eschatological or teleological importance is the aim of the evolutionary process that would eventuate in human consciousness. People plan their demise and designate the repository for both their remains and possessions in their wills, but right up until their last minute on earth they still hold to the notion that they'll receive a reprieve, ultimately allowing them to live forever. They will be on the list of presidential pardons. Clemency will be granted and instead of that final meal, the door of the prison of mortality will be opened, becoming the one cosmic exception with that ray of light or boson from the big bang 13.7 billion years ago, irradiating their countenance.
