But this would mean that ending suffering would lie in accepting things as being entirely logical or entirely illogical.
1) I have discovered all of its causes and
2) I have discovered the end.
My knowledge is incomplete. I do not know all of the ways suffering can arise. I only know the ones I have experienced.
When I try to become comfortable with a lie that is with a contradiction I suffer. It is a physical experience. In finding the lie, there is a natural return to neutral curiosity.
Everything that has ever happened is actually over and the future never comes. This does not leave a "now" or a "present" unless I want to try to describe what this is.
I have tried and I have failed.
There is no way to describe this except to say it is in MOTION. There is no lie to aging, which is not to say imagining it doesn't happen isn't possible.
It's just silly.
2) an alternative way of attempting to view reality.
The challenge of the illogical view is it can lead to madness. This is not saying madness is a bad thing. It is, however, a very challenging place to live.
Having returned recently from a long stint of it, I can say the only interesting thing I learned was how to FREEZE during a psychotic break and not get sucked into the frenzy.
It was this freezing, being absolutely still in a maelstrom of voices shouting contradictory instructions, that revealed the natural logic of my immediate experience.
There is no description for the immediate events that applies, which is not to say the immediate events are not intelligible.
Not being able to explain it to you does not mean not being able to explain it to me.
It is quite obvious.
My immediate experience is far from complicated. There is no "unknown", as far as I can tell. That is another abstraction.
I look around the room and find computers, a beard, a Murray and a window with a view of pine trees.
I do not find an "unknown".
No need to 'think' about it and complicate things.. I see how 'unknown' is abstraction. One more layer of imagined illusion dissolved... I wouldn't say "no need to think about it" as thinking is a very useful tool for problem-solving.
What does "we" mean in your experience?
That is all I am saying.
