| Allow man to believe he is one, whereas he
is actually composed of a multitude of "I's": the
rebellious "I", the anger "I", the "I"
that wants to evolve, the happy "I", etc. Buffers
prevent us from seeing our contradictions or allow us to accept
them as something normal. An example: someone who considers
himself to be a calm person but who becomes angry at the slightest
annoyance. But the justifications he finds for his anger give
him the illusion of being consistent.
