The final volume in the trilogy that includes The Book of Not Knowing and Pursuing Consciousness, this book takes us into deep contemplations on the original generation of our self-experience and our sense of reality. Ralston reveals new discoveries about the workings of mind, the nature of language, the origins of self and other, and the nature and origins of experience. By carving out distinctions from whatever is Absolutely True, each human consciousness creates itself and reality from nothing, Ralston explains. Once we distinguish self from not-self, we begin to live the illusion that self is some immaterial “object” within, despite the fact that even after exhaustive investigations we cannot locate ourselves.
