Does the ego numb our senses?

3 posts in this topic

I recall sounds, tastes, feelings, and smells being far more robust and intense as a child. When I take psychedelics or am in a very mindful state, I find my phenomenal field is of higher definition so much so that it feels like I'm back in 2005 as a seven year old again. Is it just that I'm just distracted by the mind or does the ego literally rob me of sensory information? If the latter, how can it do that if it is totally illusory?

Yes it can do that! I don't think the ego/I-thought/separate self/seeker is illusory, it's in our psychology and affects us a lot. The people who say it's illusory are not talking about the ego itself but the delusional thoughts and self-image the ego creates, the thought or idea that it is the body.

It's because of fear and thought
