I have this crazy idea.
It is partly an idea that shows to us the snapshot of the present in each other. Like a mirror of ourselves in a way that is not vain. I believe that in our interactions we exist outside of ourselves and the people that we have in our environment and our lives are like themes of ourselves. For we would not have them in our lives if it was not on some level negative or positive an aspect of our own psyche. So, like our own DNA we have others in our lives to awaken ourselves to the theme of our existence. I imagine even intelligent beings that exist in the interactions that we have with others. The truth to me is that their is in actuality no "other". That is a well crafted lie brought to yours truly complements of the EGO. I imagine that the JUNG idea of the collective consciousness is to reality that the expression unfolded in space time is to our environment. The idea is that we were once an idea from the Universe. And our creation is a prior i through the expression of nature's memes. When I say NATURE'S MEME I mean exactly that, the quantum state of the YES NO YES/NO and all of the virtual states in between. That means that at the atomic and pre atomic level we are the combined result of that energy moving and exiting itself to such an order that it seems chaotic. When in fact is intelligent beyond comprehension. Akin to being a pixel or shard of mirror hoping to emulate the whole picture or hologram. The truth is that our 3 colors are in fact our 5 senses. Which according to "The Book" by Allen Watts is only one sense, Feel. I question to discern correctly that what others call a 6th sense is only the accurate rendering of the actual hologram of "I AM" as the state of existing is I am, I am not. Or, MOVEMENT. For as much as "others" are a theme of ourselves, we too are a theme of "they". So this is anything but egocentric as a concept, as a reality. The truth is that by loving others we love ourselves. Like an infinite balancing act. The wire is seamlessly thin. As the MEMbrain or mirror mind is the balancing of forces that take the shape of reality.
