Actually, it goes deeper than that Alkonium...it's the refusal to identify with any mental self made labeled identity (example: intelligent, knowledgeable, beautiful, and so on), which results in the eventual surrender of one's own created ego. (Identifying with worldly descriptive labels creates ego.)
What if everbody did that, do away with their egos so they don't feel threatened from time to time, would there be less conflict in this world?
