Re: David's Inquiry

1. No, there's no separate entity "self", "me", or "I" anywhere, in any way, shape or form. And there never was, never has been. I would say that is the nature of human being and the marvel of human existence. 2. The illusion of self, I suspect, begins as we acquire language. Without language there'...

Re: David's Inquiry

YES; it's clear that what we are pointing to is the ephemeral nature of thoughts. They aren't "real", they do not represent "truth", they are not even "mine". I am freer than before this conversation and in some ways more powerful in my life. I am not suggesting any kind of cause & effect, but life ...

Re: David's Inquiry

There's no end to "boundless" space - boundless... no limit/no bounds. As you wrote, inner/outer, etc. may be useful in communication with people who have not looked. You say "knowing"... There may be speculation regarding the realms you suggested; i.e. inner/outer, etc. Thoughts do not limit what i...

Re: David's Inquiry

How does my conclusion make me feel? Light, may be the best way to describe my experience of not author, etc. Carol and I now respond to events ("good" and "bad") with that's just life "happening". Nothing is outside of life. I paused to consider death... part of life. Nothing separate from life. Is...

Re: David's Inquiry

No author, just life showing up. No one, nothing "owns" the authorship of life. There's life period.

Re: David's Inquiry

You are Ruthless! Hooray! Biological science tells us there is an 8 lb mass of cells in our head called a "brain". That said, I have never seen, felt or experienced "brain". If there's no "I" there's not any perception of brain in any sense. Which then seems to get us closer to just thoughts, withou...

Re: David's Inquiry

Ok, OK, gheese! Carol (my wife, who is also engaged with LU), and I had an extended discussion about what we are seeing and concluding. Here's where I am now: We all have a brain. The brain generates thoughts, independent of "me". So thoughts pass thorough my brain during my waking hours, independen...

Re: David's Inquiry

Reviewing my previous post, I have come to a different conclusion. The brain generates thoughts, My brain is aware of those thoughts and David (there's no David/I) does not generate those thoughts - they come with the mechanism. The mystery, for me lies in the dichotomy that I am "thinking" what to ...

Re: David's Inquiry

Addendum to my last response.

Didn't we agree at the beginning that using the label "I" was OK to identify the author of these communications. What I said above, notwithstanding, how else can I refer to the writer of this message?

Re: David's Inquiry

Last things first. Batman and Robin are conversations, no doubt.You ask do they exist in "actuality"? No they are not actual (they are a fiction created out of whole cloth by the story teller/author/producer - all of which are labels for a certain kind of work performed by humans). "I" is also a con...

Re: David's Inquiry

My, you do pose interesting questions! I would suggest that "David" is a conversation. The reflection in the mirror is a human body, but that reflection is not David. No parts of the reflected body are David. That body would be recognized by others as what THEY refer to as "David". Hmm, THAT David e...

Re: David's Inquiry

Referring back to you roast questions: Is life happening to David or life happening as David? How does David exist? Where is he now? Life's definitely happening, not clear that it is happening "to" David. Life's happening and David is happening in life.I could say that David is an experience in life...

Re: David's Inquiry

Continuing from last post... This may be redundant... I get that there's no "thing" I. And at the same time I am present to the experience that I continually speak/think from "i". ????
