Probably the one that is most convincing is direct experience. Try
meditation (my favorite is just doing nothing while being aware not to
snooze or think or search for something to do,etc...), or, if you are a bit
more daring and very cautious and well informed, psychdelic drugs (eg
Salvia, Mushrooms, LSD, DMT) or suspend your belief that you are just a
person for long enough (then the reality of unity tends to reveal itself
spotaneously). If you are in the right mindset and maybe a bit lucky you
experience states in which it is directly evident that there is
fundamentally no other, just this consciousness that you are.
I see, Benjamin. But unless one takes these visions as a solipsism, I would
ask, what does this bring to the table? We humans are primates, and for
most of us primates, we are group animals. We need each other even though we
irritate each other. At the end of the day, can one bring information, that
would not, logically, be known, otherwise? For instance, that Uncle,
Bruno, left a mathematical puzzle, he worked on, inscribed on page 1273, in
1999 edition of ARS MATHEMATICA, in his old, study--something like this,
let us say?
