>I, for my part, start from an assumption in assuming myself; but my assumption does not struggle for its perfection, like the “human being struggling for its perfection,” but only serves me to enjoy and consume it. I consume nothing but my assumption, and exist only by consuming it. But for this reason that assumption is no assumption at all; because since I am the unique, I know nothing of the duality of an assuming and an assumed I (an “incomplete” and a “complete” I or human being); but that I consume myself means only that I am. I do not assume myself, because in each moment I am really setting up or creating myself for the first time, and am only I, not by being assumed, but by being set up, and again set up only in the moment when I set myself up; i.e., I am creator and creature in one.
What the frick is this Hegelian nonsense?

    I don't understand it, but you have no worthwhile arguments against Egoism

      I don’t need an argument I just believe whatever I want.

    looks like a pretty obvious joke poking fun at arguments about perfection

      No, he’s saying some existentialist shit about the self being created by the self, hence the last line about being both the creator and the creature in one.

        it looks more like
        >the self is assumed for the recognition of self to be possible
        rather than some literal
        >i am creator
        which is why I said it reads like a joke about arguments about perfection

            Jokes can be true too. It's even funnier that way.

          No, he’s saying that he’s creating himself every time he exists.

          The statue’s existence preceded its essence.

    If I understood correctly:
    I assume that I am ("start from an assumption in assuming myself").
    For that I need to be capable of assuming, which for that I need to "be"("...and exist only by consuming it" "but that I consume myself means only that I am").
    Thus I create "myself" by assuming that ("because in each moment I am really setting up or creating myself for the first time", " I am creator and creature in one.")

    He's just saying that by assuming that he is, he can validate his existence.

      But then he says

    Self-consciousness that is fully in possession of itself as Spirit is absolutely its own and for its own self and nothing beside. It has only to seek out and syndicate with others that are/have this property of being in fact. The partial and beknighted Other of 'insufficient reason' is beyond consideration much less 'recognition'. One is a holos, the many other are aggregates such as require The State and 'historical development' to drag them towards the finish line by the whip hand of Absolute Spirit.
