Due to a crossword puzzle clue, I just learned that the Latin word for Ì` is ego. Now I see the word egotistical in a new light. A person who is ego-tistical is I-tistical. Of course words usually take on a meaning that goes beyond their roots. Just as the word selfish means more than just a person who only cares about himself so being I-tistical means being proud and the word ego in English means the part of the person that cares about ones status in comparison to others. So I ask this question both etymologically and hyper-physically, If one gives up ones ego does one then cease to exist.
