I will have to give this some thought. My own personal *vision* of life
is that there is no separation between things. Separation is just the
pattern we have created to keep from bumping into trees as has been
mentioned in other threads. The first step is to divide in two as this
is the easiest division. This tends to explain the prevalence of
dualism to me. How hallucinations fit into this is interesting because
it is part of the thread of our desire to arrive at simplicity by
continuing to divide things into smaller and smaller separations.

I totally dismiss non-rational process. I have seen NO evidence of this
in my life. When questioned everyone has reasons for actions. They may
not be good reasons, but they exist. It is our preoccupation with
trying to *force* our minds to accept the contradictions that we
perceive that forces this separation.

I can not be angry with Brett when he misreads my post because I am
Brett and he is me at a very fundamental level.

My belief system is founded in my Quaker background, my long time
practice of Buddhist philosophy, ACIM, and my lifetime interest in all
things scientific. (My friends refer to me as a Zen Christian geek.)

All I can say about it is that whenever I am confronted with events that
create an imbalance in my body (and remember I do not believe that there
is any separation between mind and body) I can bring it back into
balance by collapsing any separation that my body has created to cope
with the event. It works for me...

BTW I have visited your web site. It is very interesting. I also have
a site, but I have not listed its URL here yet as I am in the process of
taking it apart and putting it back together again.

Take care. The weekend is almost here!
