The Ego and the Id are often in conflict. “There is a conflict in every man, one that [all men] struggle with” (McErlane 2). This conflict is something that everyone faces everyday and it brings out our true self. Although many people do not want to take the extremely emotional and arduous pilgrimage to the center of their minds, it is always worth the journey. As shown in Heart of Darkness, there are three stations along the trek to the heart of man’s soul.
