The sea that thinks I saw a movie called "The sea that thinks". It is about the idea that what we consider to be reality, is really just an idea, an illusion. We think of ourselves as personalities, who desire and hate specific things. But that ego,and all the other things that surround us, are not real. You can think of it as a white sheet, on which things are constantly projected. Then it goes white again, then another thing is projected. For example, try this : don't think about a cloud. That is impossible. Instantly a cloud is projected. Now think about yourself. Now you are full of the idea you have about yourself. And the clouds? They are (were?) gone. So the point is to find out what projects all these things that we call reality. The problem is that we can not do this from within the ego, from within ourselves, cause then we are really just forming another idea, projecting something else on the sheet. How can we know the projector? That is what monks have been trying to do for centuries : to see through the illusion. Some claim to have succeeded. Only problem is they can't explain how, cause explaining is another projection. We will never hit rock solid "truth" that way. I do not wish to present these thoughts as some form of truth. That's why I put the word between "" earlier. I just want to present them as they are.
