Alter Ego. Dissociative identity disorder

“My friends, make no mistake. All phenomena, whether worldly or supramundane, have no nature of their own. They are all unborn, and, therefore, are mere designations, empty names. The expression ‘mere designation’ is, in itself, empty. Why do you see truth in the name? If you do, you are mistaken” — Linji.

‘Alter Ego. Dissociative identity disorder’ is the story that was left behind and lost in years (5 years at least) for a variety of reasons, but now it has been found and we have decided to publish it for fun.​​​​​​​

Freud said that Ego is that part of the psyche which experiences the external world, or reality, through the senses, organizes the thought process rationally and governs action.

In fact, today we are all well aware that Ego is the erroneous conception of the “self” as an entity that exists by itself. It's the idea of the inherent nature of the Ego. This is the view of “self” held by a mind that hasn't understood the concept of emptiness – the lack of the inherent existence of all things.

Dissociative identity disorder (DID), previously known as multiple personality disorder (MPD), is a mental disorder characterized by having at least two distinct and relatively enduring personality states. The disorder is accompanied by memory gaps beyond what would be explained by ordinary forgetfulness.

Ego Love means that you do not truly love the person, but love more what the person gives to you. Ego love is not selfless because there are usually conditions attached or control of possession to it. Ego love is based on conditions and expectations.

“You must be somebody before you can be nobody” — Jack Engler.

An alter ego is a second-self created by the individual–usually to live out a better version of the self.
