Fresco's signature reads: "Until a man uncovers himself he cannot see."

What do the members of this community think often covers a man and what is he being prevented from seeing? With regard to Philosophy (as this quote could be applied to many things).

@de Silentio,
Hubris. One cannot smell one's own fart as the senses have deadened to that odor from fatigue.

@de Silentio,
Hi De!
Do not search the souls of others until you have first found your own.


Kind regards.

Is that a comment on the signature or some advice for me regarding my recent "signature" kick?

@de Silentio,
Man is covered by a cloak of self-deception that prevents one from seeing his true feeling and wherefore they arise.

Essentially, Fresco is talking about a truly integrated self.

I did not realize you guys could still see that.

Kuvasz has the advantage of knowing its source I believe, although there are angles on "seeing"( as opposed to "self") from elsewhere, which I feel are significant.

@GoshisDead,
Ironically, the source gives great significance to "zombie-like" behaviour !

@GoshisDead,
Just for you...

When we sleep in our beds our minds are full of dreams. There is no control; thoughts, emotions, and sensations come and go at random. What we do not realize is that this dream state persists when we are awake, just as the stars are in the sky in the daytime, though the light prevents us from seeing them. These dreams influence our actions to an unbelievable extent. We walk about and talk earnestly, write books and make wars, go to church and get drunk, all in a state of sleep.
