But I know the reality I directly perceive is exactly as I perceive it.
No I ever directly perceives reality as it is. Reality as it is ..is without I
That which is perceived cannot itself perceive or be the perceiver as perceived..there is here only ''Perceiving'' ...in other words what ever is imagined by consciousness itself. Consciousness belongs to no one single I because it is every single I
A known perception is always after the fact, after the action has already taken place by no known I become known as I in the exact same instant NOW
These two attributes NOT-KNOWING / KNOWN...are inversely related.
We don't perceive reality as it actually presents itself in realtime, we only know it as a poor interpreted representation of it...after the fact.
There is no known witness present in actual realtime events or actions...the knowledge of such events become known on demand for them via memory already dead, gone and in the past...and that knowledge of the past is the only means by which the illusion of an entity being present NOW is possible. . aka the sense of self-awareness. Only on reflection can the I exist..but it's a dead I ..only the realtime present without an I lives. The dead I is a conceptual fictional overlay upon realtime I-less present already and always this immediate now eternal presence.
The memory aka the dead I is a false enity made purely of 'thought' and 'thoughts' can make up all kinds of assumptions and ideas about any thing, but 'thought' will never really capture directly the present moment as it really is or of what is actually happening...because prior to any thought arising, nothing is happening...and that means that all ''thoughts'' are nought but a fictional ovelay upon the reality as is really is, which is without 'thought'...aka totally and utterly mindless.
Mindlessness is the infinite mind in abeyance, aka Consciousness without an object. That in a nutshell is reality as it really is...any perception of reality is mental activity...which is just a bad translation...aka heresay...the play of Empty Consciousness acting and playing the role of an assumed character, but no assumed character is any more real than the character in last nights dream.
