Ummm, it doesn’t work. That’s as simple as I can make it. The whole brain thing was to explain the illusion of how it appears.Reviewing your answers to number 5 and number 6 there are some places that are not clear. We run this by other guides to make sure that I'm not blindsided because I'm used to talking to you. So here are a couple more questions...
Please keep your answers simple and not too convoluted. That made them a little hard to read.
Without bringing the brain into the picture...describe decision and intention, ie how does decision and intention work? Now that you have realised that there is no separate self, how does decision and intention work?
Free will does not exist. There is no choice. There is no control.How does free will, choice and control work - now that you have seen there is no separate self?
The body/mind mechanism.What exactly is it that are "machines acting on programming"?
OK. Bad choice of words there, sorry. To give up something you had to have it in the first place then choose to give it up. That’s not the case. There was never any responsibility in the first place, only the illusion of it. A better way of phrasing it might have been “once the illusion of responsibility is seen through...”.What is it exactly that is "giving up responsibility"?
Can you provide further examples from your own day to day life on how there is no "I" who is deciding, intending, controlling.
This is a hard one to answer. How do you give an example of life - all life?
Sitting right now on a bed with a laptop and typing a response to some questions is an example of no “I” deciding, intending or controlling. It is simply happening. I wish I could give you a dramatic example that is all “zen like” but life just happens at its own pace. Even reading that back it is just an expression of life happening - “I wish I” just happened as a natural part of language not because there is an “I” that is able to wish “I” was different.
OK. I wrote this down straight away without reviewing my previous answers. Then I sat on it. My habit is to over think then re-write a dozen times, so I’ve tried to avoid that while also taking time.Take some time and make them very clear to understand, please. Remember, it is not about how short or how long. It is about how clearly understanding is expressed.
Next day – just some minor tweaks to take away some unnecessary stuff and clarify; which was all in the every day examples. That is where the ordinariness of it is really unexpected and hard to explain.
