The contingent self

The self is an image, an image of soul, the soul of absolute being, which native cultures around the world intuitively perceive as the Great Soul, underlying all of creation.  Absolute being is the soul of the world, and the only known lfe and the only source of life in the universe. 
The human intellect falls from contemplative union with this Great Soul into reflection and discovers the reflective image of an individual self in the imagination. It projects this image of self into the world, confusing this image with its true identity, its soulfulness. The self may therefore be defined as a lost soul, a lost being, a delusion of the fallen intellect. It exists, but has no being, in the shadow land of the city invented and upheld by a conspiracy of fallen souls.
