Colman:
Turns out that earlier I was discussing with Migeru in IM that the distinction between observer and the observed is entirely artificial.

It's not artificial, it's a useful way of relating to the world.

What it isn't is the only useful way of relating to the world.

And there's a bit of a gap between thinking it as an interesting concept and living it, even a little.

Colman:

Mind you, mysticism doesn't help at all,

If you know it's all lazy woo woo by definition, it wouldn't.

Colman:

the observer is really outside reality, floating around in a higher state of consciousness with the other enlightened souls, man.

It's lucky you never find any of that in science, isn't it?
