Well, it's not an idea, it is a fact. You are the Universe. That is undeniable.
Individuality is an illusion, and has always been an illusion. That illusion of individuality has become a psychological crutch for some, and I would
like to argue that it is the sole cause of mostly all of humanity's problems. It causes selfishness, greed, lack of compassion, racism, class wars,
and all egotistical ideas of "me, myself, and I". The illusion of individuality separates and divides nations and people, and is responsible for
war on Earth.
If only everyone understood the truth; We are all one. We are all a part of one big ocean of energy that has attained consciousness. We were all
born at the same exact moment (the "Big Bang" is our birthday). I could say we are all family, brothers and sisters, but the full truth is we are
all one entity. If only everyone understood these simple facts, and contemplated what it entails, maybe a lot of the bad things like war would cease
to exist simply because people would understand that they are only harming their self in the end. Maybe then compassion would return to the world,
and people would help each other instead of use each other for personal gain. You wouldn't need to worry about a police state in that case.
The illusion of individuality will never perish though, because it is a persistent illusion, and it is somewhat necessary to understand that although
you are one entity experiencing itself from many different perspectives, you are only one of those perspectives.
