Sounds like wishful thinking.

That is very subjective. It sounds to me, and to some other people, (apparently many), that it looks more like some terrifying thinking.

I agree.  But your choice of words gives the opposite impression.





Why "higher"?  Why not "lower".

Yes, why not. The standard term is "higher".

Exactly - it is very subjective.




Why not diffused into the infinite threads of the UD?

Why not indeed? Is that a problem? Not sure to see your point.

My point is that you imply we should be happy with the implications of comp because it implies we really have a "higher self" that we've merely forgotten and that we are deluded in having a "little ego". Just consider how different it sounds to say we have forgotten our real "lower self" and we deluded in thinking our ego is significant.
