But you know, don't you?

Know what?

The secrets, riddles and mysteries of the universe, of course.

How could I?

Surely, you must have some idea.

I hardly know myself; let alone the entire universe of which I am but a small, tiny part.

Yes, but in your universe you are at the very center.

You may have a point there.

That's exactly what I'm saying; everything has a point which is at the center of everything else. From an atom, to a molecule, to a particle; your self, city, state, country, planet, solar system, galaxy, universe.

Why so many boundaries?

Because is to be cause; apart is to be a part.

Now your just being silly.

So be it.

The singular nature of duality is so confusing.

Yes, like two sides of a coin; we don't usually think of a coin as having many sides. The edge is the side of the coin connecting the front with the back (head and tail). We then have the outside which encompasses all three sides and opposed to this we have the inside of the single coin.

So the next time someonne flips a coin and says "call it", you might want to think twice?


But this all seems pointless.

That is the point.

Why so much trouble (confusion) in the world?

An ancient indian said once, that we have forgotten the center.

The center of what, the earth, ourselves?



Within our atmosphere all mater is pulled towards the center of the earth, yet life springs forth heedlessly. If we were the sun looking at the earth we could view the entire planet within the span of approximately one half of a day. We only make sense in comparison to everything which surrounds us. Nightfall is the earth casting a shadow upon itself. We (earth) control the moon even as the sun controls us; relativity (interdepenence).

Does the sun need us?
