The video below is truly a masterpiece of communication even if I'm not sure about the conclusion.
When my ego surfaces after I've had an encounter with "illuminating consciousness", I am always left with a sense of: "there is more than this." I feel there is something buried within or beyond consciousness.
In Buddhism, the Buddha frequently preached that:
form is not self
feeling is not self
perception is not self
(mental) formations are not self
consciousness is not self
Watching talks like this, however, is really helpful in sorting my own experiences. There is clarity here, even if I do not agree with the final conclusion. The graphics are amazing. The character description he applies to the ego seems pretty accurate too. Overall, helpful to watch.
