Is this ‘feeling’ an actual feeling? Where do you feel it in the body?Yes, there's a feeling of something, not necessarily a being...but something.
What is the experiential proof for an observer?
Is there an observer which is something special, apart from the five senses?
Is observer something independent of and prior to sense perception?
Yes, this is a conceptual reply.V: How is this entity/observer itself experienced?G: It is experienced when there's relaxation, when there's no focus on anything specific. All other senses seem to become sharper when that happens. Things look, sound and feel much more conceptual as nothing is labeled.
OK, so sometimes there is relaxation, without a specific focus.
But relaxation is not = observer.
Relaxation is just a sensation.
Relaxation is the sensation of relaxed muscles.
So go to the direct experience of the observer itself.
Not the sensations labelled ‘relaxation’.
What is the experience of an observer? Is there any?
You are talking as if this ‘something’ would be separate from everything else. As if this ‘something’ would be an entity, who / what could be aware of itself.No, the presence is always there, the focus just gets shifted from objects to thoughts to the experience and once the focus is relaxed, it becomes aware of itself. It's not an independent observer, just an essence or something that's there.
So where is this entity that is aware of itself?
Describe the entity itself, not a special state, but the observer entity itself.
