That is exactly what this book made clear to me. Now, in retrospect, I actually understand what all those people were referring to, what they were trying to say. This book breaks down all of our assumptions, and confronts us with not a reality as we think it is or how we were taught it is, but a reality that is actually there, the one that we can very easily observe but have simply learned to ignore or look at differently. That at the same time can make it hard sometimes to see that simple undeniable reality of things. But when you try, with an open mind, willing to see what is being taught, you will eventually disprove all of your own "I don't get it's" and contradictory evidence you think you have or know of. Let go of yourself and everything you have accumulated over the course of your life, and rebuild your reality with this book. You will be free.
Very simply, this is a book for a person who is looking to wake up to the state of Enlightenment as fast as possible. This is the book for a person who is ready to be done.
I am incredibly grateful to Goran for writing this book! I recommended it wholeheartedly when it cost $30, it is a steal at its current price.
As it turned out however, I stayed, simply because I realized that refuting "space", and thus the physical universe, would mean that I literally would _know_ that all of "this" is just a dream, literally just like all the sages claim! And having been pursuing non-dual awareness, with futile results at best, for three years, I simply felt that I at least needed to refute this guys crazy suggestion on the basis of a rational and thorough investigation, because, well, at that point I really had nothing left to lose...
And so it was that I came to see that Göran, didn't really "know" anything at all - as in possessed any knowledge. What he'd done was instead just to investigate how our thinking deceives us. How - on what basis - ideas and conceptual objects, you and me - duality - appear possible within our mental/experiential view.
What I, by thorough investigation of Gorans work, found, was that he'd simply discerned some readily apparent basic rules, that logically should always have been applied (but up til now isn't by most people in general) to the process of abstraction - the process where you mentally turn "pure subjective experiencing" into a conceptual "thing in itself".
Learning to see these rules, and the faultless logic behind applying them, was the key to start thinking in an _entirely new way_ - thinking in a way that I suspect very few up til now have thought of to think in - which effectively makes me see, clear as day, why the idea of an "out there", a "physical universe", or anything beyond consciousness at all, simply isn't "possible".
So, in case you find yourself doubting if it's really likely that such a radical discovery has truly been made - especially in the light of the "all I know is 'I am'" spiritual pointer - I just want to clear this thing up: reading this book is not about acquiring information, it's about understanding the rules of conceptual abstraction - the process of creating ideas and concepts out of subjective experiencing - which if properly understood, will enable you to effectively deconstruct objective reality - duality - entirely, leaving you with nothing but "truth" in its wake if followed through to its fullness.
