Fascinating to see the interconnectedness as I peer outside myself, naturally a feeling of oneness appears here in the visual though within my body trillions of microbes are presently living in and on what seems me,  trillions sounds like a lot but supposedly those and a few other little creatures which live onboard only weigh around 4 lbs, I don’t mind carrying them around in fact I couldn’t live without them. I know of these little one’s lives but do not seem to perceive them beyond the idea of them and the history of their ways. As is what seems my nature I stop to notice the breath I never intended to breathe, the stream of illusions continues on as more little life forms enter my  🙂 lungs.

    Programmed cell death, or ‘apoptosis’ as it is known: As an adult, up to seventy billion cells die within me each day, so I am separated from my own cells at an astonishing rate. One minute they constitute what I am as an alive being, and the next they are dead, decaying within me and awaiting scavenging by white blood cells which smell their death. Am I somehow separate from the dead cells yet identical with any alive ones? No, they both are part of what I am, which is neither entirely alive nor dead, not inside or outside any self.

      The activities we notice may show a natural intelligence appearing in an unlocatable self which presence can’t deny. Knowledge is no more a hindrance to clarity in experience than exploring stillness, may even make it more reasonable for many.
