Dp= no self, time distortions, mirror, unreal world, unsure about time, person etc, fear, anxiety, self absorbed.
Enlightenment= People say they experience emptiness and feel one with the world, compassion, good feelings, caring, love, a complete wholeness with NO fear, they go to bed at night feeling whole, an experience of some sort of happiness, no need to be attached.
So does this mean then, that if one was to experience egoless, then there would be no DP?
Because maybe DP people have ego's just like everyone else but are not meeting there needs or cant meet there needs, or there needs and Expectations are far greater. and so the ego needs to be protected and DP is the protector of the ego.
DP is possibly protected the ego from pain, not good enough, or needs.
But how can there be DP when there is No ego? No ego means there is nothing to fear, or to hide from, or to feel good enough. Because buddist monks don't have no bank, car, house, six pack, women, money, etc and they don't have DP. because there is nothing to protect there ego..
Its just my guess but I believe DP to be some sort of ego protection, BUT I don't think this is the case for people who have been abused or drugs. I think this is for people who got DP from anxiety, not being good enough, depression etc
