NEW TECHNOLOGY, OLD PROBLEM, Part One

An Advaita forum focusing on Realisation, enlightenment, non-duality, Real Love, peace, freedom, Your original nature, abiding naturally, the Oneness, the Nothingness, and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

As for Maharaj, you will find here some of his early pointers for beginners but some of his later pointers that are for seekers father along the "path." During his last years, he said of I AM THAT: "That book and whatever was expounded at that time was only relevant for that period. I am speaking differently today" and am "emphasizing different aspects." What he offered later differed considerably from his earlier talks, making clear that the pointers in I AM THAT will take you to the midpoint of "the race" but that his final talks point the way to "the finish line."

F.: During the last couple of decades, several new technologies have been developed:

1. One is called "Augmented Reality" (AR), a term referring to a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input, such as sound or graphics. It is related to a more general concept called ...

2. "Mediated Reality" (MR) in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology claims it can "enhance one’s current perception of reality."

3. By contrast, there is "Virtual Reality" (VR) which replaces the real-world with a simulated one. Many websites offer "virtual tours" of facilities, for example.

Augmentation is used in real-time cases where sports scores are overlaid on a TV screen during a match. Those offering such technology claim that "with the help of advanced AR technology, artificial information about the environment and its objects can be overlaid on the real world."

Some says that Augmented Reality combines the real and the virtual while some speak now of a ...

4. "Reality-Virtuality Continuum" (R-V) that supposedly "spans an entirely real environment to a purely virtual environment."

5. In between are Augmented Reality (said to be "closer to the real environment") and Augmented Virtuality (AV), which is said to be "closer to the virtual environment."

AR has become common in sports telecasting, an example being the yellow "first down" line" seen in television broadcasts of American football games. The real-world elements are the football field and players, and the virtual element is the yellow line, which are said to "augment the image in real time."

Other sports events make use of AR as well, including ice hockey, rugby, cricket, and swimming. As an example of mediated (diminished) reality, the network may hide a real message or replace a real ad message with a virtual message.

Some museum exhibitions and businesses and consultants use projectors and screens to insert "objects" into the real environment, and video games make use of the technology to simulate a player's viewpoint using AR. The result?

There is no opinion here about the technology. It is here to stay and will expand is usage. Some research, however, is suggesting that children who are exposed from early on to AR, MR, VR, R-V, and AV are finding it more difficult later on to differentiate between true and false, compounding what Advaitins know is already an age-old problem.

There have been reports of cases where children who "killed" people for years in AR, MR, VR, R-V, and AV games later acquired guns and actually shot people and felt no remorse at all, unable any longer to separate the images they were most familiar with from the (relative) reality that they had little or no ability to touch.

Advaitins understand that the inability to differentiate between true and false has generated for thousands of years all sorts of misunderstanding; misperceiving; delusion and self-delusion; ignorance; destructive behaviors; instability in persons; and (as a result) fluctuations and chaos and disorder around the globe.

Yet even among Advaitins, the discussion of what is real and what is not has also generated misunderstanding, misperceiving, delusion, and self-delusion. For example, there are those who claim to understand Advaita yet make false statements such as "Nothing is real" and "Nothing exists."

This was offered in January of 2010:

Recently, a regular visitor to this site asked about a pointer from another teacher who suggests that "nothing exists, despite appearances."

In response, four questions were asked:

"Does energy exist?"

"Is it something?"

"Does matter exist?"

"Is it something?"


There is much confusion among the masses, and much confusion, too, in the venues that would point the masses away from the confusion. It is fact that, pre-Realization, I am not who I think I am and you are not who you think you are.

However, the “I am not” in “I am not who I think I am” does not mean that I AM NOT should be added to the summative statement of the teachings, rewriting that pointer to read:

"I AM THAT; I AM; I AM NOT."

Freedom from the relative problems that result from deceptions and misperceptions does not require a denial of the Am-ness nor a belief that things do not exist.


As suggested here before, bend over, lower your head, and run as fast as you can into a brick wall; then, try to convince me, from within the painful state which would follow such a collision, that the wall does not exist. Tell me at that instant that you believe your head does not exist.

Of course the wall and your head exist. Of course the entire body exists. The teaching is simply that You are not Your body. Regarding the wall, the Advaitin teaching is not that the brick walls you see do not exist. The pointer is simply that a wall is not really what it appears to be, a fact that can be proved if one were to view the bricks through an electron microscope and see that, at their core, the bricks are a swirling mass of subatomic particles.

Therefore, freedom from the relative problems that are rooted in misidentification with the human body and human mind and personas comes about not by claiming that what exists does not exist.

Freedom (from delusion and misperceiving) comes by understanding that anything that exists is not what it appears to be, is not what you have been told it is, and is nothing close to what non-Realized persons will take it to be.

To conclude that nothing exists is to deny the Am-ness, and Maharaj often pointed out that You, as the Absolute, are not the Am-ness but that presently you have to abide in the Am-ness. The result of Realization is not that you believe the Am-ness is false (“I AM NOT”) nor that you abide only as the Absolute (“I AM THAT ALONE—FORGET THE I AM”).

In certain cases, various teachings are reinforcing misperception as much among the masses as AR, MR, VR, R-V, and AV are reinforcing misperception among some youth.

The Twice-Stolen Necklace Murders offers the non-duality message by way of a mystery-adventure novel, discussing the movement from pain to healing to awakening to peace.
From Dr. R.F. Maley, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus and former Head of the Department of Psychology, University of Houston: "Floyd Henderson's book, The Twice-Stolen Necklace Murders, is a fun read and an interesting mystery, but perhaps more importantly it serves as a vehicle for blending Eastern Philosophy and Native American Spirituality to make an intellectually challenging novel. The book's insights into both relationships and authoritarian conditioning of people in our society make it a must read, tracing the roots of narcissistic, sociopathic and psychopathic behaviors to the very core of the culture. This truly witty and politically-incorrect study of the aggressive nature of 'the American character' offers not only a diagnosis but also a treatment plan, making the book an excellent supplemental reading in courses such as psychology, anthropology, philosophy, sociology and counseling."

MAHARAJ: "It Is All So Simple," Part Five, The Conclusion

An Advaita forum focusing on Realisation, enlightenment, non-duality, Real Love, peace, freedom, Your original nature, abiding naturally, the Oneness, the Nothingness, and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

As for Maharaj, you will find here some of his early pointers for beginners but some of his later pointers that are for seekers father along the "path." During his last years, he said of I AM THAT: "That book and whatever was expounded at that time was only relevant for that period. I am speaking differently today" and am "emphasizing different aspects." What he offered later differed considerably from his earlier talks, making clear that the pointers in I AM THAT will take you to the midpoint of "the race" but that his final talks point the way to "the finish line."

F.: To continue, consider once more:

If you are seeking happiness, merely see how simple that can be: just return to "where" you were last happy.

Short of Full Realization, the last time you felt the Pure, Unadulterated Presence (and felt awareness of awareness without the encumbrance of aware-of-ness) - was as a no-knowing, no-concept, no-duality, no-thoughts child. To understand how to move out of the fluctuations and chaos of the relative and return to the no-mind state, persons must understand exactly how they arrived "where" they are.

It differs not at all from one lost in a maze: the easiest way out is always to retrace your steps and "get out" the same way you "got in." It was explained this way in the past:

During the process by which the consciousness manifests and becomes corrupted or blocked, a series of specific steps happen, steps which leave persons identified with the physical body (and the “mind” and personas). The steps are exactly the same in every case. The end result is that persons become identified most with the body, and that is almost as far from being in touch with Reality as a person can be, short of being catatonic.

Realized Advaitin teachers have long agreed that (a) “the path” from body identification to Full Realization is made up of the same steps by which the consciousness initially moved from manifestation to body identification and that (b) the steps must be completed in the exact, reverse order if the shift from body identification to Full Realization is to happen.

No teachers, though, identified in their exact order the specific steps (1-7 in number) by which the pure consciousness manifested but soon became blocked and contaminated and unable to see truth. Nor did any catalogue the exact reverse order of which the various specks of consciousness spoke; thus, seekers seldom find the exact "path," step-by-step, that must be followed in order for the return to happen.

During satsang and retreats, questions raised by visitors consistently reveal that the words used to point to one of the seven steps in particular is always confusing, specifically, “The Child Ignorance Stage" or the "Child's No-Knowing Stage." That is a result sometimes of ego and egotism, but more often the sense of confusion is genuinely sincere.

That confusion results because the “going back” steps closely mirror the “coming in” steps except in the case of the "Child Ignorance" step. To clarify, therefore, please consider:

When the child is a few months old, it has neither the ability to judge nor the ability to criticize anything or anyone. It has been taught no lies that will become part of the content of a fiction-based “mind,” so it can neither form nor express opinions nor thoughts nor beliefs. Other than basic bodily functions, it is capable of nothing more than witnessing. It is a "looker," not a "do-er."

To say that it is “ignorant” at that point would not be an accurate assessment, so that leads to confusion. Only when it is later taught ignorance will it be ignorant. What it is at that point is a plant food body that is capable of circulating air and that provides a temporary space in which the unsullied consciousness can manifest and “look.” That’s it.

Will it know what it is seeing? No. Eventually, the programming and conditioning will strip the child of seeing anything as it truly is because lies and nonsense will be presented as truth. The child will not be able to differentiate true from false, and as it moves from what is called “childhood” into what is called “adulthood,” it will join the ranks of all adults who always misperceive everything that they think they see, if not Realized.

The pointer is that it is only the following of certain exact steps that can free the consciousness of the effects of programming and conditioning and acculturation and domestication during the “going-out” process; the Child Not-Knowing Stage is reached after finally being free (once again) of all of the content of the “mind” and of all belief in personas.

When this step is reached during the “going back journey,” therefore, it could more accurately be pointed to with the phrase, “the person no longer in ignorance stage.” Prior to reaching this step during the "going back" process, persons will have engaged in either (1) totally distorted witnessing and / or (2) subject-object witnessing, and / or (3) totally blocked witnessing, all of which results in misperception.

At this point, the earnest seeker that has completed the first steps on the "journey" will reach a point of again being “childlike” to the degree that mere witnessing happens ... without thoughts, appraisals, judgments, the drawing of conclusions, the sharing of opinions and concepts, and without spewing nonsensical, ego-and-egotism-based beliefs.

From that platform, how can arguments happen? The child has no language and cannot talk. If all concepts and beliefs have been discarded, allowing the seeker to move truly into this “person that is no longer in ignorance stage,” then there are no tools by which arguments can be built.

Having re-entered this stage, the seeker is in that place where there was no language and where there was silence (except when hunger or discomfort manifested). Since the adult can address those conditions of hunger and discomfort, the silence can return.

A sign of movement along the “path” is a shift from the Anglo's ego-inspired worship of “freedom of speech”; then, “freedom from speech” and the "freedom of silence" can manifest. “Witnessing” means “witnessing”—not "reacting to," not "controlling," not "manipulating," not "using," not "debating," not "arguing," not "pontificating," not "moving into and out of histrionic states," not "displaying extreme 'intensity'," and not "doing."

Since witnessing happens in the absence of any witnesser, then there can come once again another taste of what was - at that earlier point - the bliss of merely being. Farther along the “path,” stabilization in the beingness only can happen, but returning to the point where there was impartial witnessing that triggered no reactions allows for the first sampling again of that which Was and Is and Shall Be (and which can be right now again and for the remainder of the manifestation).

Then, it can all be so simple, if you would but be as a no-knowing child. Peace.

Please enter the silence of contemplation. (To be continued)

The Twice-Stolen Necklace Murders offers the non-duality message by way of a mystery-adventure novel, discussing the movement from pain to healing to awakening to peace.
From Dr. R.F. Maley, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus and former Head of the Department of Psychology, University of Houston: "Floyd Henderson's book, The Twice-Stolen Necklace Murders, is a fun read and an interesting mystery, but perhaps more importantly it serves as a vehicle for blending Eastern Philosophy and Native American Spirituality to make an intellectually challenging novel. The book's insights into both relationships and authoritarian conditioning of people in our society make it a must read, tracing the roots of narcissistic, sociopathic and psychopathic behaviors to the very core of the culture. This truly witty and politically-incorrect study of the aggressive nature of 'the American character' offers not only a diagnosis but also a treatment plan, making the book an excellent supplemental reading in courses such as psychology, anthropology, philosophy, sociology and counseling."

MAHARAJ: "It Is All So Simple," Part Four

An Advaita forum focusing on Realisation, enlightenment, non-duality, Real Love, peace, freedom, Your original nature, abiding naturally, the Oneness, the Nothingness, and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

As for Maharaj, you will find here some of his early pointers for beginners but some of his later pointers that are for seekers father along the "path." During his last years, he said of I AM THAT: "That book and whatever was expounded at that time was only relevant for that period. I am speaking differently today" and am "emphasizing different aspects." What he offered later differed considerably from his earlier talks, making clear that the pointers in I AM THAT will take you to the midpoint of "the race" but that his final talks point the way to "the finish line."

F.: [Continued from yesterday] To continue with Maharaj's pointer that "it is all so simple," please review this from an earlier post:

Seeking happiness? See how simple that can be: just return to "where" you were last happy and then move ahead from there. "Where" were you when you were last truly happy, unconditionally? You were in that state and at that stage prior to knowing ... prior to having been taught any ideas, concepts, beliefs, dogma ... prior, in fact, to knowing anything.

Why do you return to your favorite restaurant? Because the last time you were there, what happened there was pleasurable. Why do you return to your favorite vacation spot? Because the last time you were there, what happened there was pleasurable. Why do you return to your Medicine Place, if you have one either literally or figuratively? Because the last time you were there, what happened there was pleasurable.

Conversely, why are there restaurants that you do not return to? Because they did not serve you well; because they did not provide what you were seeking to satisfy your hunger; because the environment was noisy and uncomfortable.

How is that any different from the relative existence - along with its concepts and beliefs and ideas - amounting to nothing more than an unfulfilling existence that you nevertheless cling to if you have not abandoned yourself to these teachings that point you back to the True Self and to that which is even beyond Self-ness and non-Self-ness?

Do you not see that such an existence, and its bogus values and concepts, are just like the restaurant that you do not return to because it has not served you well? Do you not see that the relative will never consistently provide what is sought to satisfy what persons hunger for? Do you not see that the noisy and uncomfortable environment that you have settled for can never provide you a sense of peace?

So it is all so simple: go back to the time and place when you were at perfect peace. Stay away from whatever does not offer the same. What does not offer peace is the "world" that you inhabit if you are not abiding as your Original Nature.

Go back to the last time you were truly free: when physical needs were met (so, yes, most must work to address those issues) but when there was no mind filled with nonsense and false concepts and separation-generating beliefs.

The reason that "The Terrible Two's" are considered terrible has been discussed here before: until that age, a child identifies with the source of its nurturing - in most cases, its mother.

There is a sense of oneness. At the age of two or so, the child begins to see itself as a separate self. Rather than "not-two," there develops a sense of two-ness, the basic requirement for conflict. Subject-Object witnessing replaces Pure Witnessing. The child at that point begins to abandon any sense of Self, a sense replaced by a sense of self (which will expand into a sense of many selves).

A sense of brokenness and apart-ness and disconnect must follow. Then, the relative problems become truly aggravated as the child that was content with its tabula rasa state (its blank slate, no-mind state) is taught all sorts of dualistic knowledge (a.k.a., learned ignorance) that will generate beliefs in ...

... being apart from rather than a part of

... better-than-ment

... separate and not equal

... social strata and hierarchies

... accumulation

... right religions vs. wrong religions and true believers vs. infidels / sinners

... and all sorts of other insanity-provoking dualistic concepts and beliefs.

How could anyone feel at One, at peace, with such concepts and beliefs clanging around in the head where a mind has been filled with the belief in such arrogance-based falsehoods?

One cannot, so if one is seeking a sense of Oneness and peace, then the "path" back must take the seeker beyond body-and-mind-and-personality identifications (including "good" identities that are adopted to supposedly replace "bad" identities).

The "path" back must reach the fourth step of a seven-step "journey" where the seeker "returns" to that previously unadulterated, previously uncontaminated, previously pure, previously unconditional, previously unconditioned, previously unqualified, previously unambiguous, previously clean and previously clear tabula rasa state.

The invitation offered in March was to "feel the limitless expansiveness of Pure, Unadulterated Presence, and then feel the bonds of the relative existence loosening so much that they eventually drop away."

Short of Full Realization, the last time you felt the Pure, Unadulterated Presence (and felt awareness of awareness without the encumbrance of aware-of-ness) - was as a no-knowing, no-concept, no-duality, no-thoughts child. More on that state tomorrow.

Please enter the silence of contemplation. (To be continued)
