The Outer Knower: The Hub of Human Consciousness

We all know that to live as a human can be very challenging, and that striving for psychological health, maturity, and wellbeing is an endless pursuit which, in virtually all cases, never achieves a true sense of completion. In their more mature and later years, most people settle for some degree of compromise between their ideals and the inability of attaining them in a complete way. They are divided inside, torn between inner contradictions. Their ego is unable to satisfy their superego, and so also unable to maintain a sufficiently positive self-image; they either live in self-denial or carry an unconscious sense of guilt and inadequacy at not being good enough because their life has become a never-ending compromise.
