Imperishable Being

"Although the real man who has already acquired his own "I," and the man in quotation marks who has not, are equally slaves of the same "Greatness," the difference between them, as I have already said, consists in this, that since the attitude of the first toward his slavery is conscious, he acquires the possibility, even while serving the "all-universal actualizing," of applying a part of his manifestations, according to the providence of Great Nature, to the attainment of "Imperishable Being", whereas the second, not cognizing his slavery, serves during the entire process of his existence merely as a thing, which no longer needed, disappears forever." G. I. Gurdjieff
