So Azazel is saying this:
“All things are formed from one primordial nothingness, not at some point
in the distant past, but in each moment. Every moment that
you consider me, I come into being. Every moment that you
consider yourself, you are brought into existence. Stop considering
yourself, and you will cease to be.”
Azazel is implying that the only thing that exists is this moment and nothing else. Let’s see what’s next:
"Reality is far from objective. Can you name a single thing
that exists independent of your observation? Such a thing
does not exist. "
What about when you are schizophrenic and you have an imaginary friend who you see and talk to in your living room, and then 2 more real people come in and see you talking to no one, then TELL you that you are doing that? Them telling you exactly that, means that reality IS objective and you need that collective consciousness to create it, otherwise you’d be delusional.
“When you and I meet, you and I come into
existence. Until that point, there is no you, there is no I.”
Yes, but there no “you” in MY perception, as there’s no “I” in YOUR perception.
"You exist only in your relation to that which surrounds you. "
So is he saying that if I move to another continent, I won’t be the same? And don’t say “adaptability”, because I still keep my memories, which make me be the same, in a way. The only thing that would change is behavior.
“Your very physical form is held together, as mine is in this smoke,
by the pressure inside of your skin meeting the pressure outside
of your skin, and both forces holding you in one piece.”
This doesn’t make sense at all. You are not formed only from your skin. That means that when someone would stab you, you would disintegrate? And what about the void? There’s no pressure there. But objects still exist.
“This is a type and a shadow of the whole of existence.”
Random phrase that doesn’t make sense because of the above explanations that I gave.
“Only through the application of various forces of pressure does anything exist.”
Then how does pressure exist?
“You have learned to master some of these pressure
systems, and can apply them to summoning something forth
from nothingness to speak to you.”
Yea, the imaginary friend in the living room that no one sees.
“You ask if I am real? I am as real as the world around you,
which is not real at all.”
Then how come pressure is real?
Now let’s debate. And I’d like to see what Koetting has to say about this.
