If you ever want to have a direct experience of consciousness, go to one of the large indoor aquariums that most major cites have.

It can be an incredible experience to stand before thousands of different species of aquatic marine life!

Itís also very calming, very soothing, at least for me.

Iíve often wondered, as schools of fish swim by, how they knew which group they belonged to.

It now just seems to me that consciousness has a herd mentality.

It appears to be reflected in the followers of, the many different schools of thought, of humanity!

Just enjoy BEING!

Peace!

I wonder, how we human beings know which group we belong to...?!

Cool

The same way that a star knows which constellation that it belongs to.

Hmmmmnnnnnn!.....While this may sound profound but a star & it's constellational cluster has something to with gravity!

Constellations exist only in the mind of man.

The stars in Orion exist in a position that form the shape of a warrior only when viewed from the perspective of a human on earth.


The individual stars have no idea that they are part of something that does not exist...........kinda like the individual characters in the dream of separation.............eh?

This kinda, doesn't make sense. If they don't exist, it's really no star there & The star can't have a perspective under this scenario.

The mind of man also has no existence either so your whole statement is confusing.

Something that doen't exist can't observe something that doesn't exist.

Just thoughts tripping over themselves trying to explain that which they can not comprehend!

Including all of my thoughts & statements!

Peace!

Actually, I was being nice because I did not want to insinuate that the point you were trying to make did not make a bit of sense & some how any point or expression that was apparently coming from me did!

Just thoughts thinking out loud to themselves, expressing this & expressing that but not much of anything really. Just thoughts doing what thoughts do!

Knowing everything & yet knowing nothing!

Peace!
