If only all our egos would just die.

then what would I watch for entertainment?

Cat vids

I dunno man, my cat has the biggest ego on this block.

This is the correct response.

u/KellyBelly916 Oct 14 '21

The most egotistical creatures to ever exist?

2

u/Ya-Dikobraz Oct 14 '21

Some cat posts get pretty toxic, so I guess our egos go there, too, unfortunately.

2

u/Zensonar Oct 14 '21

I've already seen them all.

u/Professional_Code372 Oct 14 '21

Cats can be assholes too

u/TheCrystalGarden Oct 14 '21

Screaming goat videos are fun for serious belly laughing. All animals being derps also most entertaining!

I like your slime

What would we eat for breakfast?

u/EagerWaterBuffalo Oct 14 '21

Any tips on killing it?

u/Rhinoturds Oct 14 '21

I hear copious amounts of shrooms can do it.

u/[deleted] Oct 14 '21

Only for a week or two until your brain chemicals normalize/ you get cut off in traffic one to many times. You are better off micro dosing for long periods of time. I have had a few Ego deaths and tried to be a hippy dippy calm guy, if you get even the slightest bit upset one time it all goes away. You can't reprogram thousands of years of evolutionary biological responses with drugs.

u/Scrumpy-poo Oct 14 '21

LSD, mushrooms, DMT, ayahuasca...

u/stonecoldjelly Oct 14 '21

Unfortunately I don’t know if they destroy insecurity which is what makes these egos a problem

2

u/VulcanRyu07 Oct 15 '21

My experiences helped with a lot of insecurities I had. In fact they helped a lot. But that's a personal anecdote

All at once.

Meditation is the slow path

u/bongjonajameson Oct 14 '21

Might just feul it depending on the person

1

u/myteethhurtnow Oct 14 '21

Yes you can build a spiritual ego from meditation or any spiritual experience.

You have to constantly care about seeking truth, even when its uncomfortable. Its not only about feeling good.

u/[deleted] Oct 14 '21

Then they weren't doing it properly.

u/bongjonajameson Oct 14 '21

Or it doesn't work for everyone

u/[deleted] Oct 14 '21

There's no science to back that claim up but ok. It's far more likely whoever you are talking about simply doesn't know how to meditate properly.

u/Carefreeme Oct 14 '21

4 grams of primo mushies in complete silence and darkness.

u/useles-converter-bot Oct 14 '21

4 grams of double AA batteries could start a medium sized car about 0.0 times.

1

u/Great_White_Dildo Oct 14 '21

What's it like?

1

u/Carefreeme Oct 14 '21

Never had the balls to try it lol. I prefer lower doses. But look up Terrence McKenna on YouTube and he gives a great description.

1

u/getdemsnacks Oct 14 '21

Marijuana, LSD

Psilocybin, and DMT

They all changed the way I see

But love's the only thing that ever saved my life

2

u/EagerWaterBuffalo Oct 14 '21

You ever think about songwriting in addition to polysubstance use?

2

u/getdemsnacks Oct 14 '21

Unfortunately I can't take credit (and I probably should have given credit in the post) It's already a song, "Turtles All the Way Down" by Sturgill Simpson

1

u/myteethhurtnow Oct 14 '21

everyone gave you psychedelics but the surest way is to do 5 meo dmt,

1

u/EagerWaterBuffalo Oct 14 '21

I get what you're saying but I think it's more to do with the individual and the set/setting than the substance.

What was it about your experience with ego death that was positive or negative?

1

u/BartolomeuOGrosso Oct 14 '21

I mean try talking like that to some random dude on a random remote location without a camera, could do the work for you if you didn't grow up with the respect mentality

1

u/EagerWaterBuffalo Oct 14 '21

I don't follow.

u/EagerWaterBuffalo Oct 14 '21

I'm sure it means different things to different people, that's why I like the term entheogen to describe these substances.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entheogen

Just interested; what was it about your ego death as you recall it that set you back in school? Maybe it just changed your trajectory, and maybe for the better, despite what at the time must have felt devastating? Overall score out of ten, would you recommend?

u/scottyboy359 Oct 14 '21

Depression.

u/TipMeinBATtokens Oct 15 '21

DMT can be pretty existence shattering.

We could all be hobbits but nooooo

'ego death is where you find happiness'

but seriously take DMT or LSD; they'll take the blinders off and teach you a lesson

Ever heard of lsd?

This is the best comment I’ve seen in awhile.

1

u/Lost-Ideal-8370 Oct 14 '21

Those two were clearly the bigger assholes and the dad is annoying AF. "Don't touch my sweet little 17 year old boy!" What a snowflake.

1

u/smellslikecocaine Oct 14 '21

How old is 17 really?

1

u/Affectionate-Time646 Oct 14 '21

We can only dream.

u/Rocky_Road_To_Dublin Oct 14 '21

It starts with not posting on /r/conspiracy anymore. We all have room for growth.

1

u/FirthTy_BiTth Oct 14 '21

Excuse me sir, are you telling me to consume LSD?

1

u/TruckMcBadass Oct 14 '21

Why stop at the ego? Lololoool (I'm in a constant state of mental anguish.)

1

u/dhorsman2000 Oct 14 '21

I like waffles

u/darkword Oct 14 '21

This statement has more meaning than 70% of the comments on Reddit.

"What a wonderful world..."

u/EggMountain Oct 14 '21

Why did I read Eggos. Tell me why.

1

u/Choco-waffler Oct 14 '21

No one is right here. Gross.

1

u/BartolomeuOGrosso Oct 14 '21

I was about to say that. America really has an ego problem, what the fuck is this exchange of words.

1

u/Ryazoo Oct 14 '21

I didn't expect to be stopped in my tracks by a comment like this from Phil_MaNuts, but yeah, if only!

1

u/Great_Greed Oct 14 '21

Been there, no thanks

u/Milsivich Oct 14 '21

Ya I mean fuck the police etc etc, but this dad is absolutely insufferable

1

u/Kurwalski Oct 14 '21

Everyone needs to do DMT

1

u/DammitDan Oct 14 '21

I'm glad I never had that problem. Having a big ego always seemed so beneath me.

1

u/NeptunesCurse Oct 14 '21

At the same time it's nice keep police in check like this. They really will arrest you for annoying them too much.

1

u/n8_t8 Oct 15 '21

I recommend mushrooms.
