EGO is mans downfall and the catalyst to make him soar. When it dominates us, we are natural born Killers. When we tame it, we can create great things. But the EGO monster has to be fed more than our stomachs to give us some power in a powerless situation. Perhaps nature gave us EGO so we did not sit under a coconut tree all day thinking what is the point of doing anything. Perhaps the smartest man of all sits under that tree and see the big picture and is content watching his 70 years go by in peace knowing whatever he does, does not matter.
