What do you see?
Have you ever been anywhere where there is nothing but you? Do we have an independent existence? Do we depend on other objects for our existence?
Your existence is always tied to other objects. You can't exist totally alone and are not separate but rely for your being on everything around you. The one who looks is the same as what is seen, the looker and what is seen are both objects, like two sides of the same coin. It is the seeing that allows them to exist. Whatever depends is not real as the real is truly independent. Since the existence of the person depends on other objects, it cannot be real. We can't exist without the sky, the earth and other objects. All objects, including us, have at their essence the one unifying canvas of consciousness, on which the entire universe of objects and their intertwined relationship occur. The seer is the seen, for everything depends on the seeing/consciousness.
