There was nothing, not even a trace of mind or universe prior to the appearance of the waking experience.

The Mind is in the form of universe. The Universe appears as waking or dream and disappears as deep sleep.  The one which is aware of the waking or dream is neither the waking entity nor the dream entity but the soul, which is in the form of formless   consciousness, which is the innermost self. 

There was nothing, not even a trace of mind or universe prior to the appearance of the waking experience.  The waking experience is parallel dream and dream is parallel waking experience. The witness of the three states is not the waking entity or ego but the soul or consciousness.  Waking entity becomes aware of the dream and deep sleep experiences only in waking experience.  The waking experience is states of ignorance because the waking entity is unaware of the fact that,  it itself is not self.  Only when it starts investigating about its true existence it becomes aware of the fact that the self is neither the body nor the ego but the formless consciousness, which pervades in everything and everywhere in all the three states.   

In self-awareness there is no form, there no time, nor space, nor cause. Consciousness is cause of everything that exists as illusion but it itself is uncaused.  There was no time, hence it cannot be dated. There was no space; hence its location is meaningless.  The formless consciousness is cause of the form, time and space but itself is beyond form, time and space.  Thus form time and space are one in essence. If the form, time and space are one in essence, than the birth, life, death and the world are one in essence. The experience of birth, life and death and the world needs form, time and space. Without the form, time and space there is no such thing as birth, life, death and the world.   

Without the ignorance the form, time and space cease to exist.   The ignorance will prevail until experience of the birth, life, death and world are considered as reality. Until experience of birth, life, death prevails as reality the illusion will prevail as reality.   Thus it is necessary to get rid of the ignorance. The ignorance will vanishes only when wisdom dawns.  

The ‘I ‘or mind or universe, waking or dream, duality are one and the same thing. Since, ‘I’ is identified as self all the confusion. And taking ‘I’ or ‘I AM’   as self is the cause of confusion. Taking ‘I’ or ‘I AM’ as self is blocking the realization of ultimate truth.  The ‘I’ or universe is an object to the formless subject. Thus it is necessary to include the universe in the inquiry to realize the unreal nature of the ‘I’ or universe.   

When the whole universe, movable and immovable, is known to be consciousness, which is the inner most self and thus the existence of everything else is negated, where is then any room to say that the body is the self.  

Without causing the objective universe to vanish and without knowing the truth of the Self, how is one to achieve.  

Dualist or realists could not distinguish between ‘I’ and ‘formless witness.’  They take ‘I’ as self or witness. Their highest is to say ‘I AM THAT’ without verification. They are so much attached to the 'I' that they do not want to think that 'I' does not exist. Again one is unable to detach the ‘I’ from the Real witness, which is ever formless.  

The dualist object: - If everything else is false than   the statement I am   Brahman is itself false, the but when one says non-duality is false, there must be the awareness, consciousness, behind the very statement. You will also go, die. One has to rely upon that which is permanent.  Formless witness of the ‘Ialone is permanent. Anything that one says is a witnessed (waking), but there is the formless witness (consciousness) there before any statement could be made.  

Dualist or realists approach is more practical, and they stuck with the reality of the world (I), they take it as real. 

The dualist or realists   are unaware on what standpoint the world is real and on what standpoint the world is unreal.  

The world is real because it is a manifestation of consciousness, but is unreal, in the sense, that it is not absolute and eternal like consciousness itself. Thus from the ultimate stand point the world is unreal. Therefore whatever seen, known, believed and experienced as person within the practical world is bound to be unreal from ultimate stand point because of their impermanence. And the formless substance and witness of the mind or universe is real and eternal.
