Sorry, I did post this much earlier (or I was apparently posting), but only to notice, since I haven't heard back from you, that my last post was sent to cyberspace somewhere.. 😔
So here we go again..
Is "I can see my coffee mug" part of direct experience (of seeing)?
No, the only thing in seeing is the visuals that I see. Shapes, lights, colors... "I can see my coffee mug" is just another labelling for the experience of seeing the mug.
What do you really see - and where does thought content / labelling / interpretation begin?
I see (if looking at the cup) an shape of something that is as bright as it is and it's colors. Labelling starts when I can't get as much information about the object as i "need" by just seeing it.
Can you find an 'owner' or 'creator' of seeing, separated from seeing?
It's there any form of awareness to whom seeing happens?
No and yes.
Seeing is always on. Nothing creates it.
But.. I do still feel that the seeing is happening to "me" . Although I cannot say what is this "I" that it happens to.
