There is a story of cole that i have believed
What is it exactly that is believing in the story of cole?
There is a story of cole, that was previously identified with by "I"
That story was reinforced by others, looking at the character They would say Hi cole,
When the character was asked for identification he would share the drivers licences,
Now Taking this back to experience there is no "I" that can be experienced its an intellectual belief
But the story still is there, This is confusing when its outside of my experience
If there is no self in "I" how can there be a self in others. So the story is not real. But still the character cole exists.
Completely lost in thought now....
Is there another self/I believing in the story of Cole?
There cannot be a self, so there cannot be another self. it comes back to trying to describe a story of a character but intellectually i cant explain how others recognize the character cole.
which i know were not supposed to do anything but experience.
intellectually i feel like i need that story to live life.
Intellectually FEELS like? Can anything be intellectually felt?
Look closely. Do you see that this is not a feeling/sensation but a thought?
This is again a language barrier, experiance cannot describe the character in this story that has a "life" "responsibilities" as he doesnt excist...
thought trying to explain thought
There is no feelings or sensations in a thought- i Understand this fully as they cannot be experienced.
i need that story to live life.
What is it exactly that needs that story?
Again confusing how to describe the character Cole that exists in society. But i know there is no truth to story's..
How many selves do you have? Cole + the one that needs the story?
I know that there is no such thing as self. because thats a thought.
Do you believe that there is another self/you outside of the story, needing the story?
I cannot confirm this with experience but I am thoroughly confused
What is it that is living life? What does life happening to?
There is a character that exists
Is there a you outside of the story that life is happening to?
there is no I, so nothing can be happening to it as its outside of experience
What is it that owns or have a job, cards, bank account? What owns them? Where is the owner?
I cannot experience it.... but that doesn't change the confusion. That "i" can experience this "thing" called an id card i can touch and see that has labels on it that say a name and has a picture that when people see that they would be able to experience seeing the same experience.
When cole comes up its usually an identity for society..
Do you believe or expect that the story about Cole will go away when the self is seen through?
I dont belive there is a self to identify with but its confusing to me that experience shows me there is no self but there is a story of cole that will be recognized...
What does the story belong TO?
the story belongs to a thought
And what does the story is happening TO?
When a story cant really happen as its not true. so its a thought about a thought
But im stuck on I Cannot experience any intellectual understanding of thought with experience so it labels to things. that i'm experiencing which are not real
Could you please clarify the above sentence?
Cole is a story when people see cole they see the character that is writing this message right now "i" don't understand how to explain that character not being connected with "my" experience but somehow its a story that still excists
A story cannot be felt or touched. only identified with
And what is it precisely that identifies with the story?
Nothing can be identified with a story as its not real. But the story still excists
What is it that needs an identity?
what starts out as a thought, then develops more thoughts and experiences and beliefs and then this thing is labelled as an identity with a name
What does identity stick to? What is it that it hooks onto?
What is the glue of identity made of?
Yes there is a story about cole, But the word points to emptiness
Emptiness? – you are not looking.
There is no truth behind the story cole as it cannot be experanced other then thoughts and imagination
Is there such thing in realty as emptiness? Or emptiness is just a concept?
emptiness is a label to describe nothing because you cannot experience a self or a story. so its empty/void not experience.
I've found this to be confusing. there is no way to experience these things "but they do happen".. if the character cole exists but cant be identified with it because it cant be experienced its not real. then experience is left over but we follow the story of cole around?...
Please send help haha
