How are you reading these words?
You say - because of the eyes... But are the eyes seeing? Aren't the eyes receiving the light and then passing them to the brain?
The brain is in darkness - it gets no light at all. It receives this data in the dark. It takes the data passed by the eyes, ears, nose, tongue and skin - it receives it all and then bundles it all together.
Where is this "picture" of the computer screen appearing? The brain is in possession of the data. The eyes aren't creating this picture - the brain creates the picture.
Where is the picture appearing? Is it appearing to the eyes? The eyes receive the light and pass to the brain? Does the brain send it back out the eyes again to be seen? Wouldn't there then be two screens?
Where is the picture of the screen appearing? Where are the words appearing? The eyes have done their job - they have received the light, the reflection, and they have broken it down to pure data - electrical signals. These signals have been relayed over nerves to the brain, which sits in darkness. The brain has received the data sent by the eyes. Now what has it done with it?
How are you seeing?
The brain creates this picture of "computer screen". Where does it do this? Is there a projector screen inside the head, with the brain shining the image? Is there another set of eyes inside the head, seeing this projected image?
The sounds, the sensations, the tastes and smells are all happening the same way - the brain receives all this raw data. Where is this picture of the world happening?
How are you seeing? Where is this picture appearing?
When we dream at night, we close our eyes, lie on the pillow. We don't receive any sensory input, yet a world appears. A world complete with computer screens, with this body and thoughts, with the complete arsenal of beliefs. This world appears in the very same way. Are the eyes and senses open during sleep, passing through all this information?
This picture is appearing once again, only the eyes are shut. The picture is not diminished. Where is this picture appearing?
The eyes are not windows - they are not openings through which the world is seen. The eyes are not little viewing portals - with you somewhere behind looking out.
How are you seeing?
Seeing is happening - that much is obvious. But the mechanism of the senses is very much in doubt. Where is this picture of the world appearing?
Notice that the hands, the body, and thoughts appear in this picture of the world. Notice that everyone you see appears in this picture. Notice that these words are appearing in that picture.
Where is the picture appearing?
Isn't the mind also in the head? So maybe this picture is happening in mind?
Maybe the world is only in your mind... Maybe this picture IS Mind...
