The true self

This page is unfinished. It may be a mere placeholder in the book outline. Or, the text below (if any) may be a summary, or a discussion of what the page will say, or a partial or rough draft.

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.
