op do you believe there exists a single force at the center of all things i.e.-God that we are all connected at the highest of dimensions? Quoting: Anonymous Coward 730821
And related to this what do you think of the concept of 'nonduality'...that we are living in an illusion of seperateness from the source?
To answer your question, I believe that the apparent separations are the way perspectives work.
Thus, that there is no center. ("Center" would be more of a physically-based concept. Where is the center of an idea, for example? There is no exact source of the idea, or origin, when you're talking about things on this 'level')
This is a big question that can be answered in several ways.
Although it may appear that we 'forget' about our relationship to the whole we do not actually.
The whole, so to speak, is contained in its parts.
It's not the we are connected or disconnected. The concept of connection or disconnection (in the most absolute way) is irrelevant. It would be like asking a chair for its mobile phone number.
