Self-deception is of interest to me.
People will go to any lengths to protect and defend their so-called self-image when consciousness studies has failed to turn up any unified center of self-consciousness at all.

I am more interested in what lies deeper in the psyche below beliefs - how beliefs structure peoples self-images, persona, lifestyle, etc. When birds of a feather flock together there is little opportunity for creative dissent. But I am intrigued to see you have had the courage to go beyond the partyline in your own thinking and practice, since I have likewise followed my inner guidance, moderated by those who I thought wiser than I at the time. Personally, I think this is what it means to be a pathfinder in this chaotic world.

If I can reasonably undo some of my own cherished notions I consider it a triumph; at least I continue to pursue that line of attack - annihilating every thought with its opposite.
