This page is a “stub”: a placeholder, so I can link to it, while I have not yet finished writing it. The text that follows, if any, is an explanation of what the page will say, rather than the proper contents of the page itself.
Notions of “true” self are closely related to eternalism, because they fixate pattern and deny the nebulosity of the self.
There are both dualist and monist concepts of true self. The dualist true self is a “soul” or isolated subject. The monist true self is magically connected to, or identified with, the eternal ordering principle.
