Before I write anymore in reply to your OP, I didn't get mad at anything you wrote. Just so we are clear on that.
Now to this:
I would like to highlight and speak to your quote of these words, specifically: "....perpetuated the illusions of separation and duality."
This is near and dear to my heart (love), and intellect (brain), and so, directly involved and enmeshed in my consciousness......but I would lovingly
say to you that you are mixing some things up here, to the detriment, perhaps, if i understand you, what you are trying to say......
I do not believe in duality. Good vs. evil, pain to feel and know joy, etc. I believe this to be part of the illusion of which you speak and
further, a justification for making people feel pain, and explaining this as that is the only way they will recognize joy, which sadly, most of
encounter rarely, if ever, really. The inbetween being just a justification for something else somewhere else torturing us, and blaming on our
simple minds that we need these two things to know the difference between them. Think about that: how insulting to our intellect and humanity is
But then you mention, "separation." I find this intriguing, and at the same time, revealing of your "slant," belief system, and really enhancing and
reaffirming the current paradigm while seeming not to do that at all. For: separation, boundaries, are an essentail part of individualism and
identity, and how we personally perceive life, joy, and pain; in other words, the dualism you spoke of there.
In case you don't get where I am coming from, yet, I am so weary of the whole "we are one" philosophy." And find you are employing it here, along
with criticism of dualism (2) to say just that, we are one. When we are not.
We are many. I hope. God, I hope, we are still many and not one or two. How boring, how limited, how controlled would that amount to, even in terms
of math, which, after all, is only another representational language like any other, that claims to through theoretical physics be able to prove and
quantify dimensional reality and consciounsess and soul.....sort of. They don't claim that much, yet, but they're getting close.....just with
I gotta tell you, Joey, are you X and am i Y? Get me. Are we integers or numbers in that particular mathematical language, meant to represent,
quantify, qualify and then manipulate with equations from there.
So if you get where I'm coming from, I find these two things together in your post to be duplicitous: still defining only two things, while
Appreciate your thought process though And interested in your thoughts as to what I have written and contemplated vis a vis your OP.....
