No.Are thoughts needed to experience anything? Are thoughts needed for seeing, feeling, hearing and so on?
No, no and the same for all of the other characters.Is it ‘your’ story? Is there an ‘I’ = ‘Paulie” other than in the story, in thoughts?
What about all the characters in all the other stories told?
Yes, I agree.How can one have an 'own' story? Wouldn't that point to separation?
There is no separation at all, really none.
Yes, I would like to look behind all stories.Wouldn’t you like to have a look what is behind ‘story’, behind all stories?
What stays if the last idea about the ‘I’, ‘You’, ‘me’, ‘them’, if all the stories would fall away for a moment?
If all stories fall away, what there is are human life forces and interaction between them and other natural forces.
