I'm interested in how people would define the ego.
[Difference between Ego & Egotism]

Primarily Identification with mind - Identification with repeating patterns of thoughts about the self. Identification as a separate physical self/personality.

We're in the Age of the Ego - This Civilisation is Dominated by Mind Identified Culture.

Body ID is also very popular - Primary identification with Body or Emotions or Mind (ie I am the Body - I am the Emotions - I am the Mind) - But the primary level of Identification is with Mind - I AM the MIND.

What does Spirit have to do with Mind?

There is nothing wrong with mind/body/emotions - the issue is one of identification.
