The world at large is suffering from a severe case of prosopagnosia. As a whole, man has become almost entirely unaware that he is in fact living in a constant state of disillusion. When looking into the eyes of another, one feels as if there is a separation between what one classifies as "oneself", and what one classifies as "another". Upon gazing into the mirror of eternal oneness, man no longer recognizes himself. He sees someone else entirely, and therefore, feels virtually no attachment to anyone or anything. The true identity of the seeker has been hidden behind layer upon layer of self-imposed self-awareness. Some call this the "ego", and others call it the "self", but all this essentially is is the unconscious belief that every man is a singular entity, apart from those around him.
An individual has created an identity for himself, based on his predisposition about who "he" is. In reality, there is no "he", there is only one. The idea of the self is entirely illusory, and can therefore be almost instantaneously uprooted. In order to do so, one simply needs to observe their existence in the most literal terms possible.
Man is vessel formed from organic material, which exists only as a result of the world around him. In order to observe a reality, one must be of that reality. When one can look past this physical world of organic matter, what one is left with is pure consciousness, or spirit energy. The mind is not the soul, the mind is a filter through which the soul can understand and observe the language of the reality in which it exists. Existence is a great reflection, where neither side is observing, and neither side is being observed. Existence is constant state of balance between source and source energy. The source is the very pinpoint of creation, and source energy is the means by which source expresses itself. One cannot exist without the other.
With no tangible way of knowing whether one exists, the only way to truly know is to reflect oneself through what is nothing more than a veil. This veil is the idea of the "self", or the "ego". This veil acts as two way mirror for source and source energy to coexist. Existence is not physical, nor is it real for that matter. Existence is of inexistence. Without an organic, physical framework for source energy to exist in, there can be no source energy, and without source energy, there is no framework.
