You think it into existence.

I know this is a basic tenet of ND
yet who the 'you' is
remains very unclear here.

Point is none on this forum are free from
thinking process.
None on this forum can actually
describe what it would be not to experience
thinking.

It's like the guy who threw stuff out of the train window
every morning.
One day s/one asked him why he did that.
"Cos it keeps the elephants away." was his reply.
"But there are no elephants here" the other said.
"Yeah, see it works doesn't it".


weint_vor_lachen OMG. what a hoot, thanks for a that belly laugh

Toom, I thought all concepts we're meaningless?

Ya, meaninglessness leaves us with nothing to think about. The way I get there is that there is both.

I love the Nihilism because it's a good sharpener. But I also love Non-Dualism.



The "I" part is your problem.



"Your problem"??? "Who's" problem?

"No separation" is meaningless without "separation".


In the arid corridors of abstraction it is true that 'non-separation' is in contradistinction to 'separation'.

But only in the same way that a 'round earth' is in contradistinction to a 'flat earth'.

Good post Zed.

Unfortunately, the forum hegemony is easily stirred into action. It makes an interesting whirring sound though Laughing

Yes, but it can get a bit grating after a while - not that I'm denying my contribution to the cacophony.

Very Happy

I'm just being cantankerous, I don't mean to be offensive.

Just that the forum is dominated by some strident voices and my take is that there may be others just too scared to contribute for fear of their languaging getting shot to pieces.

The earth has a physical counterpart.
"Non-separation" is composed solely of mental speculation.

The 'flat earth' was found to be a myth.
