As I haven’t posted to Ego Engineering for a while, I thought it appropriate to write a post covering the fundamental reasoning behind the Project Matthias project. Project Matthias, a sub-project of Ego Engineering with the aim of creating the perceptively perfect human Ego, is built upon the premise that habits are the ultimately the key to unlocking the potential of the human being. Habits are the foundational prerequisites of success, and without them we are nothing more than animals. Habits allow us to effortlessly living beyond the moment, and are incredibly low maintenance; when properly upkept, habits allow us to consistently do the impossible with minimal effort and often without any actual motivation. By allocating the mundane and repetitive aspects of life to the unconscious state via habits, we are able to focus our attention on the more creative and meaningful things in life, thereby bringing us closer and closer to the ideal, or “perfect” state.
If there’s one thing I hate in life, it’s prerequisites. Ever impatient, I would prefer that everything be accomplished now, that I could just get it over with and witness the end-result; instant-gratification in other words. But for every great thing in life, there are prerequisites; to do anything on par with amazing, an equally amazing level of planning and habit-forming is required to facilitate such things. To make the perfect human being, or even to make the perfect Ego, an immense amount of planning, knowledge acquisition, research, and creativity is required to make it all happen; these efforts are after all fulfilling of the karmic principle.
Be it the creation of an Ego, the parenting of a child, the birthing of a culture, or the revolutionizing of a nation, a proportionate amount of prerequisites are required; these prerequisites must be properly accounted for if success is to be ensured. There are no shortcuts in life, but merely more efficient routes. Finding these routes, charting the maps thereof– this is one of the primary objectives of Ego Engineering; ultimately, we will create a map of the human “Egome”, if you will. By properly charting the most efficient means of living life, in alignment with the path chosen, Ego Engineering will succeed in ensuring everyone will live life to their potential.
