Einstein on the Illusion of Discrete Selves

Escher, 'Relativity'

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us 'universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison..."

-Albert Einstein
