not given lightly

right on, ran:

Descartes's big mistake, in "I think therefore I am", was in the word I. He mistook his western ego for the whole of his identity, and never considered the possibility that the "I" doing the thinking was part of a much larger consciousness.

Really he was saying, "The detached self thinks the detached self is the whole self, therefore it is."
