we are the universe + everything in it,
there is no ego, no separate exisiting "I,"
the individual is within collective just as the collective is within the individual,
the ego is only produced by our thoughts + their eagerness to find permanence in a universe that's always changing,
it is because of our failure to see our oness with existence that the ego is produced,
it is born out of fear which is just an illusion created by a lack of understanding,
all things exist together.
