if there was such a thing as "thinking"
then it would be all about
the way One appears many.

thinking is
the brainwashed bullshit
that makes the One appear many.

-- really Really REALLY.
- O'no

Supporting arguments

I'm not sure I understood your thesis. On what do you base your argument that thinking is bullshit? why exactly do you think thinking is the reason for one to appear as many?

thinking

over 5000 years ago Hindus Sages tried to use meditation to study thoughts: (anyone can try doing this) THEY COULD NOT.

They NOT ONLY REALIZED that thoughts CANNOT be controlled.... they also realized that thoughts cannot be observed (Modern Physics tells us the exact same thing about its particles: they cannot be observed, alias Uncertainty Principle)
they realized that thoughts cannot be observed because "the MIND IS the thoughts it is trying to observe."
-=
"Think" about this long enough and it will sooner or later literally blow your mind, like it did with the Hindu sages of old.

-- indeed when thoughts slow down, in meditation, this "mind is the thoughts it is trying to observe" becomes so obvious that it is funny: the only evidence that the mind had(was) a thought is the memory of that thought which is just a thought ... MEMORY IS JUST ANOTHER THOUGHT, the mind.

if thoughts cannot be controlled then THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THINKING.
... they gave us the NONDUALITY OF ADVAITA.

reality, Universe, life, is just thoughts, that make One -- Physics's Unified Field, Now... the Hindu Atman, Samadhi, Self, Kundalini, Brahman, appear to be many.

Love, what are you talking about?

This is not accurate. There are many prominent Hindu paths like Hatha Yoga that practice with success the observation and control over thinking.

Anyway, leave aside the traditions and test it by yourself. Observing your thoughts and later controlling them are key issues in your progress. Rather than analyzing the process - who watches who etc just watch the thoughts, the analysis itself is the cause why one cannot watch his thoughts.

You will find not only that it is feasible but that it is easier than you think - use the wise and fascinating suggestions in:
