Eliminate those; i.e., eg., sight, sounds, feeling, feelings, touch, brain things like verbalized or symbolized thought, emotional reactions, intuition realizations, realizations of any kind, memory, short and long term, just keep paring it on down, heart beat, breath, blood flow, what are you left with?
that is and has always been the question, is there some fundamental awareness just there or somewhere in a proximity of some kind, other or shared dimensional even, some kind of witness, a rider or driver of some kind just above the brain, or, not?
