Thicket of Views

"This is how [a person of wrong view] attends inappropriately:

'Was I in the past? ... Shall I be in the future? ...
Am I? Am I not? What am I? ...'

As he attends inappropriately in this way,
one of six kinds of view arises in him: ...

'I have a self...'
'I have no self...'
'It is precisely by means of self that I perceive self...'
'It is precisely by means of self that I perceive not-self...'
'It is precisely by means of not-self that I perceive self...'
'This very self of mine ... is the self of mine that is constant...'

This is called a thicket of views, a wilderness of views,
contortion of views, a writhing of views, a fetter of views.
Bound by a fetter of views, the uninstructed ... is not freed,
I tell you, from suffering and stress."

~Sabbasava Sutta
