The states of the ego are classified in the following manner:

Stereopsychic: These are the identifying states that are intimately related with the exterior perceptions. These are received through the five senses and are connected with the world of impressions.

Neopsychic: These are the data processing states, in other words, states that properly interpret or misinterpret all the multiple situations that the intellectual animal lives. Our personality works like a bad secretary in these neopsychic states.

Archeopsychic: These are the regressive states (memory of the ego) that are found in the 49 levels of the subconsciousness. They are the memories of the past that are filed in a photographic and phonographic manner.

"How foolish we are! We often think that we never do all the foolishness and perversities that we see others do; this is why we arrive at the conclusion that we are magnificent persons. Unfortunately, we do not see the foolishness and wretched things we do."
