Modern Buddhists and scholars quickly forget that Mara, the evil one, is the five aggregates and by implication the no-self (anatman). The Buddhist portrayal of our human world is a world that is dystopian and far from true reality. Nirvana is the only escape by which we transcend this samsaric simulation game.

"The greatest con Mara ever pulled was fooling you believing he was you.

On that very deception you handed over the reign of your own crown to him as to rule indiscriminately in any and all things empowered to enter and leave the artificial consciousness of your own Mind.

Thus his greed became your greed, his fear of loss became your fear and his birth and death became your illusion of endless continuation in any and all things."
