4:76 One way you might be able to see this dynamic more clearly in operation is to observe some of your internal “conversations.” It is not uncommon to try to convince yourself or justify some behavior or attitude in your own mind using internal dialogue. But take a look. When you find yourself making an argument, trying to convince yourself of something that isn’t quite true, or that you know doesn’t actually represent the “whole story,” whom are you really talking to? You don’t need to argue a case, or throw an internal tantrum, or justify your position, etc., to yourself. You know the whole story. In order to make such an argument work, you need to hide the whole truth and present only what serves your agenda. Since you know the truth, who could you possibly be hiding it from? It’s not you. It only works if the one you’re talking to is held as an other. You may be able to remember doing these things and can validate this observation, but see if you can view this in operation while you pay attention to your internal dialogue over time.

navy time midnight is 00:00 however:
classically a spctrum is the poles at each end and the variations and balance only between them.
yet if one assumes that paradoxically one pole of a spectuem must have the same blend of continuity everywhere , then the only way for that to be mathmatically is for such a spectrum must be a circle. So, going with that stroy, then the more conservitive you become, the more liberal you inevitably will be. you would just need to keep going far enought in that direction.
the other aspect of such specturms is that they are all relative to the observer. one wonders just how many such spectrums we could find.
its also interesting to note that, if self/other is such a circular spectrum, then mathmatically it is at right angels to a Ven Diagram which puts self into the center of a circle and other outside the circle. a circular spectrum is in the circle itself … not at a right angle to it as is indisde/outside. else we would need to decide which way to draw the map such that it truly represents the territory … we can’t use both of them at the same time without just being confused.
this is what i am grasping for. i said teeter-totter related to a duality … you said the circularity of the Tao related to it … yet we must be talking about the same thing. So how do we combine those two views into a common one.
i think that does relate to #PR’s person talking to themselves defending their story to other even though they are themselves … but getting to that is the whole problem … not something that i can just absorb from here myself.
I often question who I am talking to or who is talking to me in my inner conversation & can identify with some of the stuff Peter Ralston of Cheng Hsin was talking about in #GofB .
Sentients are “patterns of energy” … so leaving that aspect out allows one to ignore the truth that a sentient is the same as everything else, which places one in the position to be separate from what one is observing, which is the illusion. Essentially, by leaving out the word energy, one is placing oneself in a perspective where one can conceive their own self as a separate thing. You might even say, one has elevated oneself to a separate status … like to that of God. This is a good example of why “Reality is your experience of it” works so well to focus one’s perspective in a truly natural way … one where desires are easily obtainable.

Reality is your experience of it.
If you were to treat that which makes sense as identical to that which I sense, how would your world change? What would you see differently? What would you feel differently? What if one were to meditate on that?
