Since he’s on my Facebook list, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that these interview excerpts keep appearing in front of me. At first I assumed it might be similar to the others, but only a few seconds into hearing it he mentions my favorite subjects: ‘What is the nature of reality?’ ‘What is the nature of perception?’ ‘What is consciousness?’ which captured my attention immediately, so here goes with yet another personal transcription of his short interview:
Unknown-to-me interviewer: “Deepak, what is Metahuman?”
Deepak: “Metahuman is waking up to what is reality. If I asked ‘What is reality?’ What is everyday reality? It is THIS (gesturing around him, lists a few things and people). ….. On the one hand this is true. On the other hand it is not true at all, because what we call everyday reality is a human interpretation of perceptual experiences. So who am I? I AM this being. This person. And who is the other? (Pointing around) That, that, that…is the other. This is a learned perception—it is a human perception too and an interpretation of perception. Before we can call an object ‘THAT’ or ‘THAT’ (chair, crystal, vase, etc.) it is an experience.
This… (he lifts a red phone from the table) is color, form, and shape. Color is an attribute of the physical world but there is NO color in the physical world. Color is electromagnetic radiation …. And if you trace that perceptual activity back to its Source, you will end up with Awareness or Consciousness (which are ‘attributes’ of Source).
When you take (all sensations—sight, hearing, taste, smell) back to their roots, to its Source, you end up with Consciousness knowing itself as THIS (the phone in his hand). …. So the only thing Conscious does is know itself through its self-excitations. We take a bundle of these excitations (sensings) and make them concrete as the objects, including our own bodies.
Metahuman is waking up from this delusion, which is basically a dreamscape in which that which we call your body-mind (the interviewer) and that which we call this body-mind (himself)…and that which we call the universe, etc., …so metahuman is waking up from that dreamscape to where the dream is conceived, constructed, governed and comes into me.
For simplicity we can say I AM (Source), before we can say I am me. I am Deepak.”
