Self-liberation
#1
Liberation from the confines of mind, has been tried for at least two millennia, and proven to be a Sisyphean task, as the respective undertakings tend to add to the complexity of mind.
Since the beginning of the twentieth century mind is apparently able to liberate itself through Self-realisation.

Would you say that we have come far from supposedly being able to for the apparent 2 millennia?

It is an option made public in "Liber Al vel Legis" (1904)

Camus is certainly a thinker who has a far reach into a variety of subjects.

Mind accumulates and transforms external/internal events - Self is the core of Mind

Mind should be at liberty to do as it will – will (and love) is the force of Self.

P.S. there are many variations (interpretations) of mind & self - and most of them plausible by their own terms - (there is a new one titled "Homo Deus" by N.Y.Harari) - yet, as everyone has to spend ones life with oneself i recommend to make up ones mind according to ones will and love.

(Promise to work out a less awkward formulation)

Mind is not something strange; it might be treated strangely, and even be mistreated, but these are symptoms of self-estrangement - after all mind is one-self.

This implies alienation and therefore an essential universal identity/essence. Mind is more than one, it is pluralistic, dividual rather than individual as a coherent whole and subject to relations, therefore a distinction of health and sickness becomes a better image of mind and body.

Where the cohesion of the Point of View, or coordinate, also called Self, is missing, mind appears confused and thus unhealthy.

Mind is as pluralistic and as individual as its universe.

I assume that unity comprises multiplicity in order to realize itself.
The interaction of unity and multiplicity i call Consciousness and regarded as an inter-extrapolation that relates in a viewpoint which manifests Consciousness.
(see "A Thelemic view of Consciousness")

Apropos: the heart - quoted by the Egyptian priest - signifies mind

The coordinate, or Self, of mind informs what is beneficial for it.
