When you pop a candy in your mouth the sensation of taste arises. Now that taste is something totally other than the candy and tongue. Taste only comes into existence when the candy and tongue make contact. Like man and women have sex and create a child, that child comes into being dependant on the contact of man and women, but the child is its own unique thing. Taste is the child of the tongue and the candy. Hearing is the child of sound vibrations and the ear. Feeling is the child of the body and an object. Smelling is the child of the nose and an aroma. Seeing is the child of the eye and an object.
Tasting is an aspect of our awareness, hearing is an aspect of our awareness, feeling is an aspect of our awareness, smelling is an aspect of our awareness, seeing is an aspect of our awareness. The total accumulation of all those aspects is our awareness. Awareness is the child of the senses and reality.
Awareness is all there is, no way around it. You can point to anything you want or describe anything you want, but all you are doing is pointing to awareness. A mirror(senses) contacts an object (reality) and there arises the reflection(awareness). The reflection is its own thing, it is not the mirror neither is it the object being reflected. For you to identify yourself with an observer, saying "This here is me, the observer." that would be like the reflection identifying itself as the mirror. Identifying anything as yourself is deluding yourself (I know that sounds like a contradiction, ahhh the limitations of language.) Really, there is nothing to identify yourself with. You are awareness, nothing else. Actually there is no you to be awareness. It just is.

It's been a pleasure reading you.

I'm agree with you.

That gives me doubts.
Have you seen the film "One"? Maybe that is not a valid example but can help us to visualize a person with no sense. Completely isolated from the world. But with a functioning brain.
Can't he be aware?
Probably he'd go crazy, but is this sure?
Maybe if you have learned to live without being a slave of senses (by means of meditation, etc.), you won't go crazy.
I'm agree with you in your conclusion.

It's a pity the limitations of language, it hinders us to deep in ideas. Conflicts arise wherever.

Hugs!

Hello, here's a little joke:

0=0, (yes, we know that), so:

2 x 0 = 1 x 0, (isn't it?)
(I expect that all we know: 0=1-1) so:

2 x (1-1) = 1 x (1-1), simplifying:

2=1, this is:

1+1 = 1

Saludos.

2 x (1-1) = 1 x (1-1) means that the functions are equal, but assigning the values of 2=1 to that equation contradicts itself, and then is not a valid equation, disproving itself. If 2 = 1, then it is 2 is not equal to 1, it is 1. The value of absolutes never change, merely a play on words makes it appear that they do.
