Throw me a Real Lifeline

Not Salman Rushdie!

Superego: "Virtue is its own reward."

Id: "I like my vice a little naughty but nice."

Superego: "You shouldn't plagiarize Salman Rushdie!"

Ego: "Might I address what, in principle, our reality is?"

As for the Ego's statement: what does "principle" mean?

If I recall Freud correctly, the ego operates according to the "reality principle," the id operates according to the "pleasure principle," and the superego operates according to a principle I've forgotten. As for the word "principle," it means whatever Humpty Dumpty wants it to mean!
