Non-duality doesn't exist.

Non-duality doesn't exist, because the polar opposite of non-duality is duality. And together they are duality. You cannot have only one side of a coin.

I agree. It's really a 'hoax'.

Just as as there is no such 'thing' as 'nothing'.

I addressed this 'issue' in http://www.spiritualforums.com/vb/sh...php?p=1919042#

If you check, you might be surprised to find out a coin has 3 sides.

True, but there is only one coin.

Still only one coin. One surface? So...that would make it non-triality? Just doesn't have the same mystical sound to it though. I know, it's a trinity, three sides in one coin, a holy roller.

Nothing represented as zero does exist.

Look at the equation x=1/n. As n approaches 0, x approaches infinity.

but then look at the same equation x=1/n. As n approaches infinity, x approaches 0.

Nobody told me there was going to be math! Is there going to be a quiz on this later?

I guess "three" is still non-duality.

This is based on the mistaken premise that the polar opposite of non-duality is duality.

This suggests that at one pole there is non-duality and at the other pole there is duality. This is not the case. When we speak of polar opposites then we are speaking in terms of duality. Non-duality has no polar opposite. Non-duality (by definition) is everywhere without limits. If non-duality were limited then there would be something else separate from non-duality. All duality exists within non-duality.

And strictly speaking, unity does not manifest as a duality, but instead manifests as a triplicity. There are the two poles, and the third aspect is the relationship between them.

Peace
