Would you care to answer this?


What are you though?? Are you what is appearing or are you what is seeing and knowing the appearance?

I don't quite understand the question. To whom am I supposed to be appearing?

Because when you used "for you" you created a bias. You asked a loaded question.

Pointing out what someone else sees exposes that bias and rebukes your assertion.

The question is -
Is there anything appearing for you when you are in deep sleep? For you or for anyone? Not for someone who is wide awake looking at someone in deep sleep. When you are in deep sleep is there anything appearing? Do you even know you exist?

I would have to argue that the body or brain is aware of its existence while the consciousness takes a timeout.
Because if it wasnt self aware then the electrical signals in our body would cease, and we would die due to mass organ failure.

Are you what you see? Or are you the thing that is seeing what is seen? Are you the image or are you the one seeing the image?

In deep sleep you don't appear to exist - it is only when the light comes on (when the eyes open in the morning) that you know you are.
When you wake in the morning there is an appearance - you see something (maybe a pillow or the ceiling) you can see. There is light but before you awoke there was nothing to be seen or heard.
So are you what is appearing or are you seeing what is appearing?

If I see a tree, it becomes apparent that I am not that tree.

And as I have already pointed out, that is a loaded question.

I try not to do loaded questions.

I'm fairly certain I am not a pillow.

So what makes you think differently about your body? You are the thing that controls your body, but you are not the body itself. Your body is only a vessel for your spirit, which is what animates the body you see.

I do not understand what you mean by a loaded question. Does it mean that if you answer it you might have to open the box?

Because it is my body that sees the tree, not a spirit. A spirit doesn't control my body, my body controls my body.

So you are what you see? If you are what you see then you are that tree just like you are the body that you see. Your body can control that tree too, it can shake it, cut it down, carry it, shape it, build it into a house, etc., so with that philosophy you are what you see, no matter what it is.

Why do you let religion control the way you think?

I am what I see? Reductio ad absurdum. It makes little sense what you are preaching and I feel you are grasping at straws here.

Do you realize you're trying to tell me that I am a tree?

Are eyes of the body? or of the spirit?

Enlighten me on how a spirit sees.

Can you be certain about what you are? Have you ever wondered?

I do not understand what you mean by a loaded question.

Loaded Question – a question that carries an assumption, and is worded in such a way so that the respondent who answers the question directly admits to accepting that assumption.


Does it mean that if you answer it you might have to open the box?

This is also a loaded question.

It does not matter if the answer to the question does not appear on this screen.
Can you hear the question?

Will the mind 'admit' it or will it not allow the question to be heard?

Yes.


Then you have taken a leap of faith.
