What are you speaking about life? That is the only observed reality that we are experiencing currently. Life is not the observed reality of the self. Life is the observed reality of the ego which is a construct of the predators mind. To experience thoughts is to create an observed reality. Quoting: Focused_Intent
Consciousness has no identity it simply is.
Well, now I am really
confused about what you are saying.
I consider the "self" to be the same as the "ego".
And now you are differentiating them?
And what does the term "predator's 'mind'" mean?
'mind'--is a 'curved spatiality' of consciousness originating in the 'movement' of self-reflection.
That is, my 'mind' is over here and your 'mind' is over there.
That is what I mean by 'curved spatiality'.
If you cannot describe what you really mean
by the word consciousness, it is not in any way a useful term.
You might as well replace it with the word "unicorn", for example.
Life is the reality of the "self", the reality of the 'thinker' and the reality of a non-dualistic dimension of consciousness--all of these things together.
