The labyrinth of self

The reason Bennett’s The Dramatic Universe is interesting to me is that it shows a way to reinterpret the ancient Samkhya psychology, whose key has been long lost. Once you see how Bennett sets up the whole system of human spiritual psychology in terms of ‘being, function, will’, and then shows how the different selves manifest the descending triads of will in more and more mechanical fashion the point is brought home about the original intent of Samkhya as an aid to meditation and self-knowledge.
But now the whole thing is mixed up with the system of Gurdjieff and I fear it will never be straightened out.
