Ego death is a ""complete loss of subjective self-identity."" The term is being used in various intertwined contexts, with related meanings.In Jungian psychology the synonymous term psychic death is used, which refers to a fundamental transformation of the psyche.In the death and rebirth mythology ego death is a phase of self-surrender and transition, as described by Joseph Campbell in his research on the mythology of the Hero's Journey. It is a recurrent theme in world mythology and is also used as a metaphor in some strands of contemporary western thinking.In (descriptions of) psychedelic experiences, the term is used synonymously with ego-loss, to refer to (temporary) loss of one's sense of self due to the use of psychedelics. The term was used as such by Timothy Leary et al. to describe the (symbolic) death of the ego in the first phase of a LSD-trip, in which a ""complete transcendence"" of the self and the ""game"" occurs.The concept is also used in contemporary spirituality and in the modern understanding of eastern religions to describe a permanent loss of ""attachment to a separate sense of self"" and self-centeredness.
