     The truth of such indirect knowledge would forever remain a

     As you said, ALL consciousness is consciousness-of.

     The ONLY consciousness is consciousness-of.

     All perfect certainty is consciousness-of too.

     And all consciousness-of is perfect certainty.

     Since you can not be conscious of what you are not conscious of,
there is no certainty outside of our experience, the symbol, period.

     The theoretical physical universe referent is the -1 level
abstraction, as it is a created interpretation of our conscious
experience the symbol.

     Our conscious experience, the red ball we see, is the
zero level abstraction, and is in fact the true referent,
if we weren't all deluding ourselves about a physical referent
out there.  
     Any symbol is itself an object and thus can be considered an
orginal referent of its own.  With the physical universe, people
extend the chain of symbol and referents back to one before the first
true referent, to a referent that doesn't in fact exist, so they
bypass the first one on the chain that does exist, their experience of
the red ball they see.

     Higher level abstractions, 1, 2 and 3 etc, are ideas,
concepts, generalizations about the experience.

     If people would just see that they see, and stop pretending
they are seeing things they can't see, they would be much better

     The PU is a *THEORY*.

     And a very bad one at that.

     That something is virtualizing a PU is self evident.

     However that something doesn't then become the true
referent for the symbol red ball we experience.

     Once people can see the symbol AS the referent, they can start to
as-is things, because using their conscious experiences as a symbol
for some alleged theoretical unseen referent is an inverted
