Hate to disillusion you, Art, but I read about the duality and separation thing in metaphysical books at least as far back as the early '90s. It was worded in different terminology, of course, but was the same basic idea. - Andrew

Not as our purpose for being here, or "why we are here." I put all the pieces of the puzzle together. The "why" of it all.

Art, this guy thinks you're barking up the wrong tree.

Duality is but a label, and separation an illusion. The problem arises when Duality is given the status of a Universal Law of Reality. It is, in fact, an arbitrary designation, one in which many invest most of their belief systems.

A battery has a (-) neg pole and a (+) pos pole. You cannot separate one from the other, as then you would not have a battery. It is the synergy of the whole that energy flows through; in this case, electricity. To call them opposites is not only inaccurate, it creates a false image of its reality.

Duality and its labels only serve as a function of communication and, as such, have no reality in their own right. Separation exists only as a construct and concept of one’s mind and ego-self.

To understand the nature of reality is to realize you are not the individual, and that you truly are the Universe and the Universe is you.

Who you really are asks, “Can you, without judgment, thoughts and beliefs, observe reality as it is, casting aside the nonsense of Duality / Separation?”

Sounds absolutely correct to me! ;-)
