When there is no one around, I disappear into the recesses of the whole universe, simply becoming the universe itself.Touché
Supposed there is no one around and you do disappear into the recesses of the whole universe, simply becoming the universe itself.
Years later it was discovered that this moment of of becoming was caught on CCTV and viewed by others. You were doing things which does not look like any kind of becoming the whole universe (whatever that may mean).
My question is did you truly disappear into the deep recesses of the whole universe, now that that day’s activity has shown that there was someone around watching you?
You have wholehearted believed until years later that you were alone, and that you had felt this becoming of the whole universe, yet you were observed. Do you still believe you became the whole universe now that you know you were not alone?
The point I am making is that perhaps perception has nothing to do with “becoming the whole universe”. Perhaps this and any of the other consciousness acts are simply acts of a physical being, an act that entails projectionism.
