"Can the brain free itself from all self-delusion? - 11 October 1975 - Thought and the brain. - Can the brain free itself from all self-delusion? - Why has the self become important? - Can there be only sensation, thought, and no desire? - Can desire - which brings illusion, self-deception and all the complications of changing desires - can the root of desire be dissipated? - What prevents one from having a real insight? That is, seeing the truth of desire and therefore end it. Is it that we have never asked this question? - When there is no desire whatsoever then there is a total revolution, and that will affect the consciousness of man. - Is there a movement, an action that keeps the brain pure, uncontaminated?"
