<< a contemptuous attitude toward the "lower personality" can be found in the
source literature >>

Sri Aurobindo offered a solution called Integral Yoga, the practice of which
led to an integration of all facets of the human being, each part working in
tandem with the need to crush or eliminate one part at the expense
of the other, just a harmonious working of all the elements.

An added observation: Life would be pretty damn dull without different
personalities. To make my point, look how fascinating this List is with all
its different Aegos competing with their opinions, ideas, revealing in many
cases their idiosyncrasies, eccentricities, etc.

To go through all this struggle just to end up merging in some kind of
universal homogeneity, a sort of cosmic pea soup, is a little strange if not
totally depressing!
