Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor

The machine man does not have any individuality; he does not possess the Being; only the true Being has the power to DO.

Only the being can give us true individuality, only the being transform us into true men and women.

Whoever wants to truly stop being a simple mechanical doll should eliminate each of these entities that as a whole constitute the Ego. Each of these egos play with the human machine. Whoever wants to truly stop being a simple mechanical doll has to start by admitting and understanding his own mechanicalness.

He who does not want to understand nor accept his own mechanicalness, he who does not want to correctly understand this fact can no longer change. He is an unfortunate, a wretch; it is better for him to "tie a millstone around his neck and hurl himself into the sea".

The intellectual animal is a machine but a very special machine. If this machine manages to understand he is a machine, if he is guided well and if circumstances allow him, he can stop being a machine and transform himself into a Man.

Before anything else, it is urgent to understand deeply and in all the levels of the mind that we do not have true individuality, that we do not have a permanent centre of Conscience, that in a specific moment we are one person and in another moment, another person. Everything depends on the entity that controls the situation at any given instant.
