Incessant autobiography

If I may alter a word, C. S. Lewis' sentiments about Satan in his Preface to Paradise Lost are a fitting description of heresy:
To admire heresy is to give one's vote for a world of misery and a world of lies and propaganda, wishful thinking and incessant autobiography. Yet the choice is possible and hardly a day passes without some slight movement towards it in each one of use.
