Ego or Awareness
Refering to the following blog post:
Steve Pavlina's Subjective Reality (as of September 11th, 2006)
If "consciousness" is all there is, and the body and everything else is just a projection of this single consciousness, why bother with the body at all?
Simply thinking should fix everything, but it does not. Why so? If it is, why the lag?
How come there is a linkage between levels of awareness one experiences and the states of his body ("awake", "sleep")? IOW, how can one vibrate at higher levels during sleep, but at lower levels when "awake"? If they are both projections of the "mind", why aren't they the same?
If the body and consciousness have a one-way link (from the consciousness to the body and outward on), then how come alcohol, drugs and other "physical" substances cause one to lose or alter the experience of sense of consciousness?
What about black outs? For example when you get a strong hit to the head, or when your blood sugar level falls.. If you ever lived through one of these, you know what I am talking about. Did the universe stop existing because you blacked out (yes it did for 'you' whatever that mean)? Where did the one and only consciousness you experience go?
Note: I absolutely agree with the single consciousness and everything emanating from it, but I tend to think that there is more to the link between the ultimate single consciousness (far left) and its "physical" manifestations (far right). Perhaps the link is not a one-way projection as depicted above or there is an extra layer between the single consciousness and as the experience of that consciousness which we (I?) call "the self".
