Non-Duality and How to See It
“Non-duality” is the state of seeing everything as one thing. The interconnectedness of all things.
How can you can you see, in all of the million and one things that you can touch, taste, and feel around you, that they are actually one single thing exactly?
Well, no need for heady, metaphysical mumbo-jumbo, the scientists have figured out what these philosophers were hypothesizing for thousands of years:
Democritus the Thracian said that everything can be broken down until you get to one indivisible part which he called “atomos”. Since then, scientist have been working in order to verify this claim; and they were successful. With the magnification of the electron microscope, the naked eye can catch a glimpse of these subtle particles that we were taught in school makes up everything around us.
Every, single, thing around us, whether animate or inanimate is made up of ”atoms.
Science is not true, and it was never supposed to be pursuing truth.
Science is a tool with which we can construct the “known” out of the chaos of the “unknown’ and this is different from other “constructive” pursuits doing the same thing like religion or philosophy, from the interpretation of organized data.
If the experiment can be repeated by obtaining the same results, the experiment works.
What did the scientist find out about reality?
The scientist fails in all accounts, but that wasn’t the point of science. The religious figures too tend to fall short because they talk of pursuing truth based upon belief, which is ultimately a completely unsuccessful pursuit from the start since they find the truth through belief, which is oxymoronic. At least the scientist perceives that they start from an objective standpoint, holding no beliefs, claims, or magic that will influence the results.
Science is no better than religion in that they both follow the same ritualistic pursuit of using belief systems.
The Rites of Ceremony = The Rites of the Experiment
Holy Scriptures = Textbooks
Pontiffs = Nobel Prize Laureates
So if you have questions that want to get to the truth, and science won’t give it to you, and religion won’t give it to you, and philosophy won’t give it to you, how will you get it?
Moreover than just asking yourself what is there to get, ask what is there at all?
Removing your tool belt of thoughts and constructions, what do you have to work with?
You have existence, and that existence is yours; and my existence is mine, and person-over-there’s existence is there’s.
There is only one question left,
Do you feel it?
