Adi Shankara, cont.

The physicist, Erwin Schr?dinger said:

Although I think that life may be the result of an accident, I do not think that of consciousness. Consciousness cannot be accounted for in physical terms. For consciousness is absolutely fundamental. It cannot be accounted for in terms of anything else.

All experience, no matter how varied, is in awareness. I am Awareness.

I think therefore I am.
The important point being the "am".
The evidence that a person has of all of the objective reality is our subjective experience of it.
The "think" is the spotlight which displays what lies in the darkness.
Have a car accident and suffer brain damage and your awareness is altered.
The you remains you. Your brain is damaged and your awareness is likewise altered.
While the objective world continues on unchanged.

It's a useless rabbit hole.
Life might be a simulation.
Or maybe it's all your dream.
Except that it's not.

It?s the other way around. I am, therefore I think. I am whether I think or not. Awareness doesn?t need thoughts.

Experience equals Awareness plus reflection.
You are Awareness and Experience and flesh and blood and past experiences etc etc etc
Extremely multivariate.

Actually it doesn't matter.
But if what we are lies in Awareness then we must think (be aware) to know that I am.

You do know that "I think therefore I am" is a quote right?
Actually "cogito ergo sum".
Ren? Descartes.

Dude, I am you. Not as body or mind, but as pure awareness everywhere.

It is rather obvious that the word I can only logically refer to awareness. What else could I be? Awareness is the only thing I could be. Namaste.

I like my word salad with a bit of blue cheese dressing. Maybe a nice vinaigrette.
