Original belief

The original belief is the fundamental building block of our (always unstable) consciousness. It develops in early childhood and is the root of what we generally call “psyche.” Without it, we could not have developed the ability to make representations (e. g. words and numbers, time and space, criteria and beliefs, memory) or to develop what are called “social strategies.” In adulthood, when I-consciousness has become mature, the original belief becomes the main obstacle in the way of another possible development leading beyond the separating identity.
