As with so many Vedantic topics, it depends. In chhandogyopanishad there
is the story of devaraja Indra and daityaraja Virochana who both learned
brahmavidya but only Indra understood it properly. Virochana just
understood it to mean "I am God so I can do whatever I like." The Devas
are the children of Aditi (infinity) while Daityas are the children of
Diti (Finity). The limited mind will see everything it perceives as an
extension of ego and anything beyond its comprehension as "difference."
But Advaita Vedanta shows us there is an alternative.
