According to Buddhists who

are flat with the fact truth is absolute, like Wei Wu Wei, language is an event in the dream and not an event in reality. If mind is dreaming ‘reality,’ then reality, aka ‘right now,’ includes ‘language,’ or all the ways the dreamers in this dream fill time with ‘talking,’ revealing, on closer inspection, that most talk services “The Master Lie,” that right now is real, and not a dream, and that all the dreamers in the dream are the people they portray in the dream. If right now is a mind generated dream, then it pays to pay attention to language because it reveals where all the dreamers in the dream are with the fact truth is absolute.

    I spent some time learning to communicate provisionally, as my teacher described it; basically speaking from first person singular, in effect separating fact from opinion, revealing that most observations from first person are in fact opinions. By saying I think, it appears to me, I believe, etc….the dreamer (speaker) is essentially stating ‘this is what I see’ while simultaneously admitting that this is merely what the dreamer sees, negating that what is stated is non-negotiable fact. It admits to the world as being one of appearances and thoughts and feelings about those appearances without sounding concrete as in ‘This is the world, this is truth, this who I am, and that is who you are. I also have found the use of E-prime, a form of English that excludes the use of the verb ‘to be’, useful in painting a picture of the dream scape, a painting which includes feelings and thoughts about it by not stating opinion as fact. Eliminating the verb ‘to be’ eradicates opinions disguised as facts in most cases.The world and its apparent occupants, without going into too much boring detail, appear as ‘the seen’ so to speak, rather than as defined separate entities posing as this and that by the dreamer who by calling things (thoughts) this and that can’t exclude itself from that picture. By naming others, essentially telling them who they are, the person defines him/herself as one and the same and appear to pretty much do that throughout the dream. It becomes more obvious then that there is no person, but just a constant constructing of one within daily conversation. The more the dreamer catches its own speech in the act of playing out this role appears to be the first step into changing the way one talks, which in turn changes the way one sees. It apparently is a skill that can be developed slowly, and in some cases quickly, with the realization that most speech is merely spoken to continue the fiction that is ‘our lives’. At first I didn’t believe this could actually be a life-skill (dream-skill), like any other skill acquired with practice but I have become a believer in the notion that by changing the way one speaks also changes the way one sees, listens, communicates and feels.

    Dreamers featured defending “the Master Lie,” that right now is real and not a dream, and that all the dreamers are the people they portray in the dream, display degrees of investment in the fiction it’s possible to prove truth is false, somewhere in consciousness (the dream) between awake, and flat with the fact right now is the dream mind is dreaming, to total rejection of truth and busy filling time defending “The Master Lie,: whose defense is comedy in a charade because this can only be content in this dream. There are no people to defend the fiction they are people: that’s absurd, and quite funny. This dream features how the dreamers in this dream create duality, or the fiction defection from mind is possible, using story, self and skit to fill time with this parody. This is the nexus of this dream: mind dreaming the dreamers defending “The Master Lie” as “The Main Event” in this dream. In the absence of people, reality is a comedy, which often, understandably, turns into tragedy, especially in defense of the fiction control exists and the defense of this fiction includes ‘violence.’ In this dream, the end product of the fiction defection from mind is possible is the fiction duality is possible. Mind dreams the dreamers creating duality to drag out the fiction someone is having a ‘real life’ outside the dream mind is dreaming, as if there is such a place. People don’t use language: the dream features the dreamers doing personhood convincingly with ‘language.’ Waking up always includes listening to how the dreamers in the dream us language to service the fiction the self is real, and not content in this dream. Language accurately reflects where all the dreamers in the dream are with the fact ‘talking takes place in the dream,” some place between awake, and having fun with words, or deep in trance, counting on language and ‘intellectuality’ to prolong the fiction reality is a genuine people-based event. No interactions involve people, which makes ‘judgment’ and ‘reactivity’ comedy in this mind generated charade. There is no one to love or hate anyone, which explains why such dualisms occupy such a prominent position in this dream. If there is no one to actually have a self, language clearly anchors the concept of the ‘i concept’ in defense of the fiction the self belongs to a real person. Defending this fiction is a full tim job in this dream, and this becomes transparent once you stop pretending people are ‘talking,’ so you can listen to how dreamers use language to drag out the fiction they are people. This shift in ‘listening’ is stunning, because it means ‘listening’ itself is delusional because there is no one to do that. If truth is absolute, the defense of ‘the relative’ has to be the main attraction in this dream. As I say to clients, “you can’t have it both ways: either everything is content in this dream, or nothing is.”
