Is there a difference in these thoughts? Is there a true difference or is it just different content?
It is really just different content.
Now, bring up a thought about a character labelled "friend". After that, look at a thought about the character labelled "me”.
Is there a difference? Is there anything special about thoughts with the content "me-character"?
No it is all one thing being labeled as different things
What is the actual experience of others ?
The only difference is their “thoughts” seem to be concealed, there is mystery. I don’t have access to their thought bubbles from “here” things just happen.
But other than that it is all the same thing
by the way can you please explain in detail what the illusion of separate self is, when it starts and how it works ?
It seems like there is hidden knowledge or secrets that other separate beings know that I don’t know. It just appears that things are cordoned off.
It is probably part of some game we are playing with “ourself” like hide and seek. I don’t think I am supposed to know.
I can’t really explain or know it got started originally. I can make up a story about language and labels. I can assume that as babies and small children it isn’t there. I can remember learning language and how that felt. How I felt whole and part of everything. I remember that feeling early in life.
I have an inkling of how it got started but I don’t have a clear specific proof of anything. Those are just more thought-feelings which are more labels.
