3. Identities existing souly in Consciouness debating their non-existance...

Objects of consciousness (sights, sounds, thoughts, feelings) vary, come and go and can be extremely addictive to other objects of consciousness (body-mind-sense-complexes) that are on the same plane of reality.

My writing desk has an apparent reality of solidity but science negates this at a different quantum level of reality.
Where does the unifying truth lie? What is the ultimate 'unified field explanation'? How can the explanation of every-thing ever be known by any-thing? Such an explanation needs be as though, a mobius-strip of knower-knowing-known!

!But! There is one non-negate-able Truth. Consciousness (not what is thought, not objects of consciousness).
The a-priori existent "I AM", known intimately in every human, is self-evident, needing no proof! Are you here? What evidence is needed to answer this? What proof could convince you that are not here or that you do not exist.

Lifes' problems are all situated in our mistaken beliefs about "what I am". Beyond certain givens like gender, family and place, all else is added on after birth. It is this belief-bundle of experiences, education, desires, etc- our suitcase of self-identity. We pack it, we rearrange it, we carry it around and we think this is ME, though sometimes tossing treasures thought to be previously me. Is the suitcase useful? Yes, sometimes. Difficult to haul around? Mostly. Packed with what we need for the unseen future? Never! We always pack from the past. We need to be unpacking our suitcases.

In all times, every product of the hand of womanity, every truth revealed by science, every brain cell that lights up and conveys self-information, every body-mind-sense-complex (with a name and a memory and even more not-memory), every scholar and expert of every field, every opinionated professional pandit person of passion, every less than Einsteinian-graced neighbor struggling with congenital body-mind-sense-complex problems...

...it all exists on the nature (plane-realm-ocean) of awareness/consciousness as the the knower, as the known, as the many means of knowledge. Start taking everything away. Do your best to negate all knowledge, explore the quantum world of the smallest of the small and negate it. Investigate the vastness of the universe looking for the One explanation and dismiss it.
Look for what remains when all differentiation is gone, all objects of consciousness and all mind-ideas erased, all questions answered, all dusty cobwebs of crusty cosmic confusions cleared....Consciousness remains to to uphold this KNOWLEDGE.

As is true of any study of the subtle, knowing this requires long study and definitely requires being awakened from the false belief that "I AM" no more than the stories I've been told (birthdate and education) plus imperfect memory of this body-mind-sense-complex.
