'That' which is seeing 'that which is appearing as existence' cannot be seen.
'That' which is real does not appear to exist.

Can you see what is seeing?

Seek that which is seeing.

Can the dreamer of the dream ever be seen? Or is it just the dream scene that is seen?

That is all that can be seen.

We may never know if the dream is really seen. Or if we seem to believe the scene we have seen.
Before I start channeling Dr Seuss I should probably stop.

Before the scene that I seen effects my poor spleen.



I just skipped your last response to me as I figure you will work it out, but this...Oh man I have tears in my eyes haha
Starting to cramp up from laughing so hard. Did you intend this to be funny because it is almost solid gold

There appears to be colour and sound and then a thought appears that says I see I hear.
Is there a 'who'??
'Who' could possibly know?


Only the person it appears to. And even then.....

Live life under the assumption that everything you hold most dear is quite likely wrong.

The best place to start is with that which cannot be denied.
Can you say you are not?
When you say 'I am' you can then realize that no thing can appear without your presence. But is 'presence' personal?
Consciousness is not personal.

In consciousness all things appear and disappear - all is passing, arising and subsiding.

You as you 'think' you are (a person) - are not.

I am and I am not.

I cannot say that I am not.
I can say that things "may" appear without my presence but I cannot be sure of it.

Consciousness is only personal because we can never be sure of other consciousness's"

I as I think I am "may" not be.

Does any 'thing' actually ever exist?
Or is this just an endless flowing river of ever changing experience?

Thank you very much. My "answer" revelation came to me as part of a 5min set I want to do. And I'm listening to Bill Hicks as I continue to babble. He's got nothin on Carlin or the GOAT which is Pryor but he's on my Mt rushmore as Lebron would say.

Anyhoo, thanks. Much appreciated.

If you are interested in looking deeply into what existence/experience is then I would like to introduce you to Peter Brown.

Do not be put off by the title 'Reincarnation' - Peter is asked what reincarnation is and answers that before reincarnation can be explored one must investigate what 'incarnation' is.
He really takes the lid off the box.

We need to accept that both the 'thing' and the endless flowing river may not exist.

Well there definitely does seem to be something happening!!

But it may not be what it seems.

Yes, something...
But my something differs from yours. And without a definite point to compare to it's impossible to know.

I'm still listening to Peter Brown now, and I will look further into him. Thanks for the heads up.

Life is but a dream - existence is dream stuff.


Then what are dreams? Life? Giving other names to things is easy. Apples are oranges. Cats are dogs. But upon closer inspection, it becomes quite meaningless.

Ah, but the answer(s)is/are only some of many possibilities. I'm thinking its not what is the answer...but more like "what is the QUESTION"?

We figure that out...and the answers would be evident.

Wow, the beauty of ignorance. And I mean that sincerely.
I would love to plagiarise his words as my own.

He seems to support my view. Or at least portrays a view I can believe in.

Everyone knows what the question is.

An answer without the question avoids the chance of a loaded question.
The reason I think that this is the answer is because it is not only open to all variations but answers all variations also.

This is under the heading 'Reality'.


What you are actually is beyond words, but it would be not untrue to say you are nothing whatsoever other than pure, infinite, disembodied consciousness/intelligence; a field of miraculous infinite light; God dreaming itself; an infinite point of pure potential; or the infinite implications of nothing whatsoever.

The immediate presentation of this unspeakable actuality is the field of your experience, which is an instantaineously appearing virtual field of Radiant Presence as apparent qualities. This is the actuality of which every/ and any/ thing that you think exists consists. This is inclusive and complete; nothing whatever other than this field exists. In short, the entirety of Reality is the "bubble" of YOUR experience, the field of Radiant Presence, which alone exists.

This is the totality of Reality. This is not theoretical, but is actually, immediately real; always the case right here right now.

Cheers. Simplicity is the key to a good solution.
This isn't an exercise in semantics, I truly believe this "answer" is the real deal.

Nothing divine, nothing sacred. Just common sense based in the reality that we should accept we cannot understand.
