Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 3 verse 28:  But he who knows the truth about the Gunas and their interactions, knowing it is the Gunas that act upon the Gunas, remains unattached.

...continued from 3.27.

It's all in your head. The three Gunas of Nature manifest out of Veda (3.15) into ego operating at its finest level. Here, the experiencer, the experienced and the process of experiencing begin. Operating at a refined level of ego, one has a ringside seat to the creative process at its subtlest level. One 'knows the truth about the Gunas and their interactions' and 'remains unattached' to the actions the Gunas create at a grosser level. Functioning at this level of contentment, all is familiar.*

*This ancient understanding of creation and its reliance on functioning ego is strikingly analogous to Robert Lanza's theory of Biocentrism.
