So im reading TES volume 1 and Seth clearly says that he calls himself Seth. I also remember seth splitting hairs and later saying “I never told you my name is seth.”
"you may call me whatever you choose. I call myself Seth. It fits the me of me, the personality most clearly approximating the whole self I am, or am trying to be. "
Is it that Seth 2 is the whole self he is working towards?
The distinction Seth made that makes sense of it regards his comments that names are not needed outside physical reality; we must use them, here. Indeed, he views a name as more of a trap that limits awareness of the multi-dimensional nature of self, keeping us within the history and associations attached to it.
So he says to call him “Seth” but says he is nameless.
Simply, calling me a name does not mean that I identify with that name; I just use it for to be practical when I’m somewhere that needs such designations (because full telepathy is suppressed in physical reality).
