THE ENTIRE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE OF SPACE, TIME, AND MATTER SEEM TO EXIST TO MAKE THE EGO SEPARATED SELF SEEM TO EXIST IN ONE’S AWARENESS, YET IT DOES NOT EXIST AND IS NOT REAL AND THE UNIVERSE ITSELF IS NOT REAL; THE UNIVERSE IS A MAGICAL SHOW
The whole universe exists to make the separated self-seem real, yet it is not real. We make it real and then we die and our bodies decay and return to the sixty four elements (carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, calcium, copper, phosphor, magnesium, sodium, phosphor, iron, zinc etc.) that were used to form them and those elements decay to electrons, protons, and neutrons used to form them and those decay to quarks and to light that were used to form them.
Where we had seen our bodies are now light. Thus, what we have here is light forming the separated self’s body and making that separated self’s body-seem real in our awareness.
We are driven to believe that our egos and bodies are real and try to make them real by defending them with food, medications, clothes, shelter, and everything that we do in this world.
We present our seeming separated selves in bodies to other seeming separated people to accept and yet they do not exist; we go to wars and kill each other to make our separated selves seem powerful in our minds.
We write books that celebrate our separated selves’ accomplishments and yet those do not exist, they are chimeras, delusions that do not exist that we want to make to seem to exist but do not exist.
Do this, now. Tell you that you do not exist, that your ego and body do not exist, that all you know about you is make belief. Accept it and you experience nothingness replace what you had hitherto believed as your separated ego self.
This is not mere intellectual negation of the universe and the self; it is stating facts, as they are. Your body seems real to you, seems solid, liquid and gas, but if we stick it into an oven and burn it, we reduce it to gas, and the gas is reduced to elements and the elements reduced to light energy and that light energy escapes and continues to exist as part of the light energy in the universe.
Where did that light energy come out from during the Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago, and where will it go when the physical universe that it transformed itself to die, when the universe ends?
All I know for sure is that if I give up all concepts that I have of me and the universe that what remains is the thinker, life; what the thinker and life is I do not know!
Some call the thinker, life, spirit, but I do not want to go there in this brief essay.

The entire universe exists for us to have separated selves
If you meet Jesus, on the road, kill him.
