Yes there is always one fragment or self dominating, who is a controller of a kind, suppressing all the others, and that activity is very much evidenced in the so-called society where control of everyone, by everything is very pronounced. Which brings us to the matter of external, which is to say external to me, and other than me, other self, other constellation of fragments.
In the world of quantum mechanics, which is very much part of the reality here, the whole notion of an external being in the way it is held to be via consensus reality, breaks down, and I see a connection here with what Krishnamurti has said regarding the death of the self, and the death of thought, which is the image maker, and to Krishnamurti’s notion of mind, which he placed outside of the brain.
Krishnamurti pointed out the brain is not contact with the mind, which is the immeasurable, and actual external to the brain, and not the external generated by thought as in the consensus reality, mapped by science, which is the observer of it, which brings us back to the observer is the observed, and not just psychologically.
The observer of reality is not a haphazard or accidental thing, but is embedded in that reality, as a fundamental construct of it. So when the observer ends, the reality ends.
So to come back to the Self, which is the many selves. The selves viewed as other than myself, in what is ordinarily considered the external to me, as mapped by science, is no actual external, and so all the other selves are me, just as I am them. So Krishnamurti has pointed out that I don’t just share the same self image you are, I am the self I see you being, just as you are the self you see me to be.
How do you see this?
