No I

Well, another post on this topic.

There is just space and cognition and the content, as a field. There is no center, no contraction into an “I”, no sense of “I” and “other”. It is a tapestry of human self and whatever else is there, but no part of the tapestry is scrunched up into an “I”.

The content may be exactly what it is otherwise, when there is a sense of an “I” there. Only the context has changed, from a contraction into an “I” to a wide open field w/out center.

It is so simple that it seems almost impossible to talk about. It is so close to our experience – even when there is a sense of “I” – that we tend to overlook it. It is so different that we for a while don’t take it seriously.
