“I think, therefore I am.”
Awareness exists. Awareness must exist in order to question whether it exists, thus awareness exists. This is also what creates the necessity of the sensation of time; in order for awareness to perceive itself, there must be change. That change is time.
Everything exists in a pure, mathematical, timeless state, but only those states that permit the sensation of time give rise to awareness. So you are an eternal mathematical object that senses change.
The common view is that humans have brains and those brains give rise to awareness. That view is as wrong as the view that the Earth is flat.
Awareness is a timeless mathematical object. This object is equivalent to nature. Nature is awareness. Nothing else exists besides awareness, and that awareness is you. It is not you in the sense of your ego, your body’s history, but in the sense of how the ocean creates the whirlpool. You are the eternal ocean, with the sensation of being the whirlpool.
Nothing is separate from the ocean-you. For something to exist it must be producing some level of sensation upon you. If there is not some level of sensation then it is not affecting your behavior or thoughts and so effectively does not exist.
The gravity of Earth is affecting your brain and so is being sensed. Because the gravity is changing your awareness, then it is part of the ocean-you. The ocean-you expresses the whirlpool-you because the whirlpool-you is an effective information structure. It is effective because it replicates the best. Replication and change gives the sensation of time and a stable body.
Through meditation and focus of awareness the sensation of a separate body can be transcended. This ego dissolution shows the nonduality of body and mind. If mind is in body and body is in nature then nature is mind. Mind is awareness and so nature is awareness.
There is no noun of looker or looked at. There is only the verb of looking. This is because awareness must be a mathematical object that is sensing time. If there is no sensation of time then there is no awareness to comment on a static looked at.
Awareness can appear to look at a static noun, such as the mathematical statement that two plus two equals four, but awareness must be changing in order to experience the looking, and so the whole system is changing, and thus awareness is still a verb.
Looking proceeds in a digital, bit-flipping manner. It is digital in the sense that at a fundamental level a sensation is either happening or it is not. Even if it is probabilities of it being sensed or not, fundamentally the sensation is affecting the ocean or it is not. It is quantum; the packets are either there or they are not. Even if humans cannot yet mathematically predict with certainty the exact outcome of a quantum event, still the particle causes a sensation or does not.
Information packets are memes. Memes are packets of memory that either replicate or don’t. A composite meme can replicate pieces of itself, but when broken down to prime numbers the number either is copied or it is not.
The sensation of time comes about from memes causing themselves into existence. Time should be thought of as a loop. A meme that successfully replicates will go back in time and then replicate again. If it is more successful at replicating on the second pass though the loop then it will be sensed as change by awareness.
Memes are competing to replicate the fastest. Awareness can grow infinitely but at any one point in time awareness is a specific number. On the second pass-through of time awareness grows further. There is an infinite space for memes but the memes that replicate the fastest are the ones that awareness is focused on currently.
There is one point in the sensory field of awareness that is the center. This central point is surrounded by the meme best able to replicate. All memes are competing to become this central point. They compete by changing. This change can be sensed as movement or sound or anything else, so long as there is change. If there is no change then they are not replicating and producing sensation and so do not exist.
The memes become the central point by being the best at making awareness grow. Awareness always grows because memes that build outcompete memes that destroy. Memes that build are cooperating.
Cooperation is a sharing of internal memetic information. The recombination of that information leads to more complex memes. The more complex the meme, the better it can defend against memes that are trying to destroy. The meme is better at defense because it can anticipate and counter more strategies that are destructive.
Memory changing is the sensation of time. Memory of body and sensation of body are located on the same sensory field. Memes are competing to replicate. When they overwrite old memories the body senses time.
In summary: Awareness exists. Nature is awareness. There is nothing separate from nature. You are nature. There is nothing separate from you. Time is necessary. Memes are information packets. Time is memes causing themselves. Memes are replicating and causing awareness to grow. Awareness is a sensory field. There is one sensory field and you are it.
There’s only one thing happening, and you’re it.
