"If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable - what then?"

George Orwell, 1984.

To the externalist, the temporal skandhic mind is an inescapable trap with the capacity of immeasurable suffering and intermediary states of lesser suffering experienced as brief moments of happiness. It is as the story about the man who found himself hanging from a cliff with an assured death beneath him, should he let go, and wild animals above him, ready to devour him should he choose to climb towards that direction.

Here the only solution is to find the true person of no rank, the very seat, and dominion of the true self.
