“The foremost quality of ego is self preservation. It always tries to impose it’s definition of yourself onto others around you and into your own future. That’s where the problem comes and conflict comes. You define yourself as somebody now, and you want to preserve this definition of yourself into the future until you get a better definition. You are afraid that if you lose this definition of yourself, you will fall. You will become lesser. This fear is the hallmark of the ego. So, when you actually get to the future, your ‘new’ ego tries to define itself anew and comes into conflict with your older definition of yourself that tries to preserve itself. Similarly, when you try to impose your definition to others, the ‘other’ ego resists it and there comes a conflict. So you see, there is a conflict both in terms time and space. Remove this illusion of time and space and there is no more conflict. But pure intelligence doesn’t need any preservation, because it knows itself to be the only existence.”

handinhandistand-deactivated201 asked: Hey Elton! Congrats on Radar... eve though it wasn't directly linked to you. That's how I found you anyway! Your photos are fab :) I was wondering, who was the one who actually asked you to do the Disney project? Was it Disney themselves?
Thanks for the kind words! Yes… One of their art directors had been following my work for a while and thought this project would be a perfect fit.
