The Road Is a Grey Tape



The Road Is A Grey Tape is a story about finding clarity of self in the experience of becoming lost. To know oneself is obviously a deeply personal path. But, in a way, the personal is precisely what one seeks to transcend in “knowing.” In religious thought, truly discovering the self often means to discard the self—the ego, illusions every single one of us builds in order to tell the story of who we are—and to instead exist in the present moment. Isn’t this, after all, the project of being human? As Socrates says in Plato’s dialogue “Phaedrus,” “I am not yet able, as the Delphic inscription has it, to know myself; so it seems to me ridiculous, when I do not yet know that, to investigate irrelevant things.”
