The Brahmanist theology called Vedanta believes that ownership arises due to the sense of being separated from the rest of the universe. When one suffers under the illusion that one is separate from the rest of the universe, ownership is one of the ways one may attempt to reconnect with objects. Vedanta believes that ownership is an illusion which persists as long as the belief in separation from the Universe persists. When one understands the fundamental reality that there is only one entity called the Universe, one is freed of the illusion of ownership.
Famous quotes containing the word view:
“Now view yourself as I was, on the spot
With a slight kind of engine. Do you see?
Like this . . . You wouldnt hang me? I thought not.”
—Edwin Arlington Robinson (18691935)
