Ron Alexander There was no concept of "ego" back then.
Darryl Snaychuk: Giving it a name, did not make it, it only named it.
Ron Alexander :However, since then it has been demonized as the "inner devil". Freud described it as the "conscious connection between the "Id (our instinctual self) and "Super Ego"(our Being?)
Sometimes when I’m asked to describe the Buddhist teachings, I say this: Everything is connected; nothing lasts; you are not alone. This is really just a restatement of the traditional Three Marks of Existence: non-self, impermanence, and suffering.
