THE CAT-GODS HAVE AWAKENED!
THE FELINE FRENZY HAS BEGUN!
The Yutu rover suffered a mysterious “abnormality” over the weekend. And the robot’s microblogged death note may make you cry.
“The sun has fallen, and the temperature is dropping so quickly…to tell you all a secret, I don’t feel that sad. I was just in my own adventure story - and like every hero, I encountered a small problem.” “Goodnight, Earth,” concluded the rover. “Goodnight, humanity.”
why did they give it a personality and have it die alone on the moon its an attack on me personally
“[Chang’e] doesn’t know about my problems yet. If I can’t be fixed, everyone please comfort her.”
If by subjective you mean that the seen is not apart from the seer, then yes I would say reality is subjective.
Two interesting quotes:
"Has anyone ever seen the world without a body?" ~ Ramana Maharshi
"Reality is that which does not depend on anything else to be known." ~ Master Nome
Reality is existence, awareness, being, consciousness, god, divinity, whatever you want to call it. And you are That. You have always been That.
The illusion to which you refer is of your own making. It is due to misidentification. You are not your mind nor your thoughts, not your body nor its senses, not your personality nor your beliefs. And to know yourself as you truly are, as reality itself, you don’t need to use any of those things. In fact, you can’t use any of those things.
Why? Because they aren’t alive, they have no actual knowing capacity of their own. You are that which gives life to your thoughts and your body, without you they are merely a corpse and words.
The body and the subsequent appearance of a world do not come to you and say “Look! This is who you are.” Although the overwhelming experience of it all may sometimes feel as if that is so, the truth is that we claim through misidentification this body-mind and the world experience that rises simultaneously with it.
In terms of spirituality, the Real is regarded as that which is eternal whereas the unreal is said to be the transient. The difference is like thinking the things you watch on your TV are actually there inside the TV. It is just an appearance of the TV and while the TV is more real than that appearance, it is easy to forget this truth and become lost in the show.
Are you actually lost, “tangled up” in the show? Do you need to fight the show, or in fighting it does any actual disentangling happen? In fact, the very notion of fighting the events of the show still suggests the misperception that the show is real.
All that you can do is come back to yourself. Call it awakening, enlightenment, self-realization, or whatever. It is not about becoming something that you are not but rather knowing yourself as you actually are.
For that purpose, there is a plethora of teachings and paths available.
