    The Myth of Myself ~ by Alan Watts

    This theory of reality seems most plausible to me.

    • Skepticism is the antiseptic of the mind.
    • Remember why we debate. We have nothing to lose but the errors we hold. Who but a stubborn fool would hold to errors once they have been exposed?

    Hi Richard,

    So if this is true I am you or you are a figment of my imagination? - Or I am just a figment of yours?

    I think this is what he is saying because if there is one universal conciousness then if you are not a figment of my imagination we end up being the same conciousness which means I'm going to get tired living out everybodies lives?

    Unless everybody else's lives is an illusion so I don't need to live them as nobody else is concious?

    I'll stick to being a Christian but does this stuff bend your mind assuming you are concious?

    regards

    Luke

    Your question suggests you missed the first statement of the video ... and perhaps everything following thereafter.

    You are not a figment of my imagination. You are a figment of your own imagination!

    And yes, from this perspective it looks like we ultimately share the same identity as the one and only consciousness that says I AM. If you think of yourself without any specific qualities like male/female, old/young, tall/short, where you are/where you are not ... the next thing you may realize is that there is nothing that distinguishes you from another. You have done away with all distinctions. The Father and I are one ... that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you ... so that God may be all in all. These words the Christian in you may resonate mightily with? A stick to Christian you may.

    I viewed the video again and it does make sense. So I am a drop in the ocean thinking "I am a drop" but really I am the whole ocean of pure being experiencing only being a drop?

    When I die will I wake up and just know everything?

    Am I getting closer?

    I'm still betting on Jesus but I like a good philosophical talk. I've always been very curious and I have confused nearly everybody I have ever spoke to about this stuff. It's like people are drunk on life and don't think about this.

    Are there any meds to stop this kind of thinking?!!! - I might become more productive.
