Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)

The Zen master tells us that an omnipresent idea can be hidden by its own omnipresence---the forest lost among the trees.  In our normal daily behavior we are most estranged, most in the grip of an illusory idea of the self.  Every enchanting inclination of pride and its ego, of convention and its master---social training---conspires to maintain the illusion.  The semanticist calls it the inertia of old premises.  And this is what holds our analyses of consciousness within fixed limits.
