Overall, I did not begin the experiment thinking that I would have a life changing experience; however, that is exactly what I got. From the un-self lead me to self. From darkness lead me to light. From death lead me to immortality. I do not know if this is intentional or not however the translation does not put “the” before self, rather simply states “self” as if to say there are selves in a very worldly sense and a self in a universal sense. I want to connect to self, but fear what preconceived notions/beliefs I will have to lay to rest in order to meet myself. This experiment did not turn out as I had imagined and hoped, but I am ready to wake up from this never-ending nightmare of an existence so inextricably linked to what I see rather than what I feel and know to be True.
