Question: Why is it that after so many years of study we still ask about its purpose? It follows that we always start from the beginning, from zero?
Answer: No, each time we start from an even greater “zero”! Indeed, the egoistic desire is constantly growing, as does understanding. Our desires become sharper and more precise, and thus our “zero” becomes deeper and more defined.
