Hello SapphireBlue

Nonduality does not mean the absence of polarity or relative duality. Put simply, it points (through the inadequacy of language) to the fact that even now as you read this… there is nothing other than an ineffable Source or Oneness at play. Reality - without a second.

In spirituality non-duality means a state of complete consciousness where the concept of 'other' or 'me' does not exist. While one can be enlightened and non-dual, the one term does not imply the other.

Here are at least three thangs which exist in relation to and dynamically interact with one another:

There's (1) the wind that blows, (2) the thang (the sail of the 'boat') that is blown by the wind, (3) the 'intelligent' presence ('in' the boat) which hoists (or not) the 'sail', keeps the 'boat' from tipping by inventing and using (4) a 'keel', and steers to wherever it wants to go by manipulating (5) the boat's 'rudder'.

Have fun reconsidering.

I'd say there's a spectrum between opposites but that doesn't make the spectrum a polarity. You argument is compelling but not convincing.

Speaking of the 'spectra' of possibilities between 'polarities' (and other 'thangs' )

Maybe first try thinking in terms of three-dimensional space 'containing' more 'spectra' than a 'linearly' defined array (or possibilities) between two opposites/polarities.

Then graduate to thinking in terms of four-dimensional time-space and the now much 'greater' possibilities (specters, spectra? :smile") within that time-space.

And then graduate to imagining and thinking in terms of Life (a/k/a Reality) being matrixial, that is having an infinite number of dimensions and multi-'linear' interactions (hence spectra ) criss-crossing within IT.

That's how I (Sometimes mind-bogglingly!) think.

Yes to your mirror imagery and all. Regardless though, duality is an aspect of the incarnation state and a reality of the Physical plane. The human/souls I interact with in the Physical, are individual, separate souls. We do not occupy the same space. They are there, standing in front of me; and I am here, standing in front of them, and using them as my mirror. ("Don't move around please/thanks, it makes it difficult to see myself!") We incarnate in essence to experience duality. If it wasn't neccessary, souls would simply remain in the unity of the Spirit plane.
