Pseudo-Intellectualism: Self Vs Ego

Ego: Write it! Write about the pain-worshippers!

Self: No!

Ego: Why?

Self: Cause if I do, then I would just be being righteous.

Ego: But being right is everything. EVERYTHING!

Self: No. I don't want to live my life consumed about being right.

Ego: But being right feels good.

Self: No. Being right only leaves more space, a void that needs to be filled with more feelings of righteousness. When am I ever going to finish my work or achieve anything, or more importantly, enjoy anything, if I am on a constant crusade to be better than everyone?

Ego: Well, are you doing your work now?

Self: Good point. Goodbye. You won't be getting any sustenance tonight.

Ego: Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!
