When I initially started Ego Engineering, I had a system in mind- a sort of “one size fits all” matrix that anyone could use to engineering themselves into a person optimized for success. But as I quickly realized, “success” is, societal models notwithstanding, a highly relative ideal, the definition of which is boundless and without any clear criteria beyond the ultimate goal of personal satisfaction and perceptive perfection.
To account for this rather inconvenient truth, I began the process of reformulating Ego Engineering with a more modular approach in mind. I opted to start with the universals- a series of articles dedicated to addressing ideals which, albeit abstractly, succeeded in conveying the necessary information (what I refer to as “Necessities”) for anyone wishing to engineer their Egos, irrespective of individual differences of criteria for “success”.
While there is still much work to be done in addressing these universals, It should be noted that while these “necessities” are the foundation for Ego Engineering, the real magic comes into play for the particulars- the specific applications of universal truths in such a form optimized for particular criteria [of success].
These particulars enable everyone to self-engineer themselves in such a way that is optimized for their individual, familial, cultural, national, and global values, allowing for a self-evolving system that is truly versatile and evolutionary, without any limitations for the optimization and improvement of the self, regardless of whether the “self” is individual or collective in nature. What sets Ego Engineering apart from other self-help programs, is that it is truly versatile- it is not a generic “one size fits all” system, but a uniquely versatile framework.
The framework of Ego Engineering, which, like fractals, permits for seemingly contradictory patterns to branch off from a common source, interact with, and even synthesize with each other, is what makes such versatility possible. While the universals are held in common, there are no restrictions of morality, values, priorities, or even virtues. Anyone can use this framework to freely choose what they wish to become, and the means by which to become anything and everything is designed to be continually optimized and evolutionary. With Ego Engineering, you are limited in who or what you can become only by your own imagination.
Once I build the initial framework, Ego Engineering will take on its own life, and emanate and evolve on its own, like a living being, feeding off the creative energies of those that utilize it. As we all apply it to our own lives, to manifest success as we understand it, it is my belief that the framework will synthesize a new reality, the likes of which we could now scarcely imagine. A reality where the evolution of the self finally becomes infinite.
