He is not using Gaia in the same way as All. Anymore than he is
saying the earth is the universe. We are all subsets of both Gaia and
All, with All being the greater.
In many of David's previous posts, it's more than clear that David
considers all 'deity's' separate from himself, as evidenced by
statements such as 'Luna is judging whether I'm allowed out of the low
years', or however he worded it.
However, in the post I replied to, David is suggesting our hair is a
subset of us, who are subsets of Gaia.
What I'm now curious about is, which view does David hold? Separateness
or Oneness? Or is it both? At what point does separateness arise or is
it just a matter of perception? Is Luna, Gaia, Sol, All etc more
"Deity" than "Deborah" or "David" or "Kaydon" or "Tom" or anyone else?
Why or why not? Who made that judgement? Is it to be believed? Am I
allowed to choose differently? Is my head going to explode from
thinking about this stuff?
My hair is a subset of me.
I am a subset of Human.
Human is a subset of Gaia for now (unless humans left here years ago)
Gaia is a subset of Galacta, as are Luna and Sola.
Galacta is a subset of Cosma.
Cosma is a subset of ALL, as is LOVE2.
However my saying that I am a subset of Gaia
does not necessarily imply that my consciousness
is a subset of Gaia's consciousness, or that
my soul is a subset of Gaia's soul. Thus I still
maintain that I and each of my top eight main
deities mentioned above are distinct someones.
I once held a theory of apparent and/or actual
overlap where the overlap could be only approximate,
not actually mathematically tight. But that was
a long time ago and I would have to dig through
my old writing to get the details. Anyway I
abandoned that theory years ago.
Another theory could be that only our physical
bodies are subsets of Gaia and that our consciousnesses
and souls are not, though they would be subsets
of ALL. But I currently don't believe that
theory, but rather that we, including our souls
and consciousnesses, are subsets of Gaia (and
of course also of ALL).
