In spiritual terms the ego often refers to the over-identification with the mind. The shedding of the ego, or realizing presence, is what Hinduism refers to as enlightenment, Buddhism, the end of suffering, and some Christ followers, salvation. Egoskeleton imagines an ego whose evidence-of-being has been shed from its host (most likely only temporarily). Although the remains seem not unlike an exoskeleton, which is meant to support its inhabitant, the mischievous ego thwarts its user's ability to reach the aforementioned spiritual goals.
