    "It"

    What is "It" besides 10th among the 5,014 most common words in the English Language?

    Note: The 11th is "I". 5013 is "apology". 5014 is "till".

    Johnny, 'it' along with a few people, places, material things, concepts and principles matter greatly. Thanks for asking.

    It works for me but try a search on the title in quotes and go to the link that says it is a pdf from selfdefinition.org.

    From the preface:

    PREFACE
    THIS BOOK explores an unrecognized but mighty taboo—our tacit
    conspiracy to ignore who, or what, we really are. Briefly, the thesis is
    that the prevalent sensation of oneself as a separate ego enclosed in a
    bag of skin is a hallucination which accords neither with Western
    science nor with the experimental philosophy-religions of the East—in
    particular the central and germinal Vedanta philosophy of Hinduism.
    This hallucination underlies the misuse of technology for the violent
    subjugation of man's natural environment and, consequently, its
    eventual destruction.
    We are therefore in urgent need of a sense of our own existence
    which is in accord with the physical facts and which overcomes our
    feeling of alienation from the universe. For this purpose I have drawn
    on the insights of Vedanta, stating them, however, in a completely
    modern and Western style—so that this volume makes no attempt to be
    a textbook on or introduction to Vedanta in the ordinary sense. It is
    rather a cross-fertilization of Western science with an Eastern intuition.
