Right here. Where I am. In my head.
How are you determining that consciousness is inside the head?
Which sense or senses are you using?
The container is consciousness. The perspective from where everything is experienced.
How do you know?
The container (consciousness) in in my head, behind my eyes.
Ok, so there is a container inside your head, and interpretation happens in that container.
So right now, this moment, you are witnessing a container . . . it's inside your head . . . and it clear that interpretation is happening in there. Yes?
As you examine inside the container, is there anything else you can find happening?
There's no direct experience of the point, but all sensations come with a sense of proximity.
They do, but that's nothing to do with the investigation here. I already mention that when talking about, 'Objects in experience may appear to be 'at a distance' from a location where 'seeing' appears to be being performed.'
But when I hear it, it's like it's spoken by an accomplice - not me, but an accomplice who follows me everywhere and is born about with me and who is like my shadow, my conscience, some part of me, but not the true me
Is the accomplice inside the container also?
Forgive me for saying it, but you are now talking very strangely. We seem to have gone into a very weird and slightly worrying place. Have you mentioned to anyone else that you have an accomplice that follows you everywhere?
But it's existence is as clear as if it were a direct sensation
Good. But again, if you are determining it's existence, by which sense are you determining it?
Is it possible for other people to know that whatever you are referring to really exists?
If you are stating something 'inside the head', then perhaps it would be possible for a surgeon to cut open the head and find it's existence in there?
I don't know; I'm struggling with this. It's all a mess of language right now
Yes, it does seem that way.
It was requested right at the start to put all non-dual, spiritual, religious and scientific ideas completely aside and focus on all this is a very simple basic manner.
What I can say (and this is to help you, believe me), that continually holding onto the belief that there is a consciousness container inside your head will not assist you. This idea might be useful for certain aspects of examining things, but it will not assist you here.
The very guidance itself it a search for anything separate which we identify with, and this will include a separate consciousness container inside a separate head. As a guide, I will continually ask you what appears clear to you, and how exactly you know this.
