I like the concept of knowledge being related to the knower in that instant at which they are perceiving something. Though it has radical conclusions, perhaps, such as knowledge of past experiences perhaps being cut off since we do not 'perceive' the past as such in the way we are talking. Although I suppose, if knowledge is just a collection of what we're perceiving, would you class the perception of a memory as knowledge in this way?
Yes all knowledge is memory...this immediate moment is in a constant state of pure not-knowing potential...becoming known in the instant it arises falling away into memory in the same instance. Knowledge is just a fiction arising and falling in the empty space of pure potential....if something can be imagined then it must have already existed to have been imagined...this idea can take some grasping..but I feel you are a very open minded individual that is why you have been attracted to this topic.
There is no doubt that the universe is a totally mental phenomena and all ideas come from that rational mind, and that they are that mind and no-thing other than that rational mind. There is a rational mind behind all phenomena, for no phenomena could arise without one... It's totally self-evident without doubt or error. I say it's rational simply because life is just so incredibly wise and intelligent and it works so beautifully and gracefully and effortlessly. That can only come from a rational mind...not an irrational mind.
Since the knower cannot be known, and knowing is in the instant it arises one with the knowing, all knowledge is a fictional story appearing from not-knowing pure awareness. Pure awareness is the natural state of everything known..it's the ultimate ground of all being without an object...it is that in which all objects appear and disappear. ... It's called the pure SELF...it's not the fictional self which comes and goes in the pure self, it's the ''no self'' - ''no mind'' ..Which has to be...just like the screen behind the movie has to be in order for the movie to appear...the fictional self is just the movie playing on the screen which I call PURE AWARENESS...the I without an object.
Objects appear in this..this has to be for an object to appear, and while objects appear and disappear...awareness does not, it cannot, it IS everywhere at once, there is nowhere for it to go. It's not going anywhere or coming from anywhere it's already here now always perfectly ageless and still. It's synonymous to space. Everything in the universe is literally made out of the space it's appearing in which is this immediate empty fullness one without a second.
Did that explain to you what I mean by Latent Pure Awareness? ...this is your true natural nature. You are infinity for eternity experiencing itself as pure popped aware potential appearing as everything in spacetime duality...you aka conscious awareness will get to experience every experience that is possibly conceivable because that is what's already appearing to be happening.
But this is just an idea...let's be clear about that..take what is of value, what you resonate with and reject all else.
Oh and there is no end to this as long as there is the desire for it..which there clearly is.
