Understanding and empathizing with one another allows people to elevate. This moves them further away from Extreme Ego. To prevent this, Extreme Ego blocks empathy during the beginning stages of a disagreement.
When a disagreement begins, Extreme Ego induces pride. This ensures that the people involved rarely back down from their own viewpoint. Once that’s been established, the disagreement moves in a downward spiral as it transitions from argument into fights and possibly even wars.
Extreme Ego promotes separation, and at times comes in the form of Extreme Spiritual. An example can be seen when there’s a lack of empathy between different religious groups, which can eventually lead to disagreements and wars.
