The autobiographical 'self' perhaps is concretised through clarification, ideas, belief and conviction.
There is no doubt clarity is essential in matters of function and operation of the living entity within the framework of society (social environment), to learn a technique and to earn a livelihood and in all technical matters and for purposes of survival.
But clarity of thought in 'matters of mind' (psychological domain) could be dangerous as it only hardens the person (the autobiographical self), perpetuates dogmas, doctrines and ideologies….sowing the seeds of division and destruction.
Everyone's clarity is unique and coloured by his or her background and hence collective clarity is a myth!
Sagely life seems like instant action born of situation and not premeditated or clarified or coloured thought....as explicated by UG.
