Hi Thelema! how could we be the same person? since a person is defined by their limitations and exclusion persona is Latin for the masks actors wore in dramatic plays maybe all living things are expressions of the same consciousness maybe it's just electric monkey meat spazzing out illusions generated by our biology what I don't get is if our brains like all life are products of dualistic processes and we therefore inescapably perceive everything in dualities aren't dual/nondual states of mind another duality? at the very least we can say all life emerged from the interplay of opposites the bright hot shafts of father sun penetrated the dank primordial mists of mother earth and life emerges at the continuing, fragile meridian of harmonious interplay between the two our local syzygy parochial expression of the dyad so how could we know anything when these dualities are what our brain is built from? I also want to know if to be 'all one' is to be literally al-one... are all distinctions illusory?
