What are the key differences between duality and non-duality?

What are the key differences between duality and non-duality? If one learned both teachings would it lead to the same conclusion about reality?

    Non dualists want to be absorbed into “the source” like the Borg. Dualists are everyone else.

      Inversion

      Non-duality shutting down the left brain that create a natural filter against any information that doesn't come from physical realm (meaning protect against spiritual realm)

      Non-duality is like removing the safety mode in your brain.

          Inversion

          Left brain is the ego / analytical brain that perceive and interpret information and generate reality. The all meditation emptiness thing is all about to shutdown the left brain, so the right brain will control both side of the brain (this is unity using hemysinc) and create new neuron pathways in the left brain so you can access to new ability.

          There is two way to shutdown that left brain (Your thoughts must be like ripples on a stagnant pool.):
          > Passive
          Make emptiness like Buddhist do, hardest but the unity / Samadhi / Nirvana will last longer.
          > Active
          Non dual-mind. (Each time a thought pop generate the opposite and let them dance/fights until they annihilate themselves)

          When you shutdown left brain, the right brain will push through the cave of Brahma (hippocampus) and whatever you have in mind in the right brain it's transferred in the left brain and create new pathway / Siddhis. (God gifts / special ability)

          Somehow the most terrifying things it's this all was know by sages 12000 years ago.

    It depends on the religion, belief or philosophy. There is no consistent meaning to the term. For example in Hinduism, it means something like absorption into the single essence and ground of reality.

    In Buddhism, it refers to Buddhist epistemology, the loss of subject and object.

    In Catholicism, it refers to the sanctification of the Holy Spirit, the rational substance or soul, removing divisions between the mind and body and a type of spontaneous development of theological virtues.

    The thing about non dualism/monism is that is fails to explain the origin of apparent duality. Maya is real even if it’s an “illusion”

      This is quite true of the substance'essence monist accounts. Most types of non-dualism don't really commit to any substance monism though. The Non-dualism tends to be epistemic. Pic is example.

        The only substance is consciousness, and the only force is cognition.

            Those are inventions of the mind (force of cognition). Witness-Consciousness is indivisible and imperishable.

            There is more than witness consciousness.

            Yes, there is Mind (the force of cognition) - as I have said three times now.

            How could one invent more. A bullet in outer space is alone and from its point of view barely moving (and without stars not moving at all)

            "Outer space" is an invention of Mind.

            If there is a mind and also a witness consciences, than there is duality.

            Monism/non duality can’t be true, as the universe is composed of elements.

            Yes, there are two interacting principles, but only one substance and only one force.

      Dvaita Vedanta and Vishnadvaita both critique Advaita for that reason too.

    What is “non-duality”?

    There are differing uses of that word. Even Buddhists (like in Mahayana Buddhism, Chinese Chan/Japnese Zen, and Tantric Buddhism) have teachings on “non-duality”, but they are nontheistic.

    Theistic nonduality would be best exemplified by Advaita Vedanta (teaching there is no actual difference between God and ones innermost Self, and this God-Self or Brahman also makes up the entire Universe).

    On yet another level, there is the idea of neurocognitive nonduality (similar, in fact, to some of Buddhism’s teachings on subject-object nonduality or rejecting the distinction between subject and object). Viz., the entire world you perceive, all the sensory objects or sensations perceived by the sensory organs, are nothing else than what “you” are, or “you” are nothing else than what is made up of these experiences and the apparent objects/external situations your consciousness is directed on. Basically, that the only thing “you” can experience is “you.”

    Yet another form of nondualism, applies to theism, could be in beliefs of pantheism, or a qualified form of it in panentheism, other belief systems similar to Advaita Vedanta that hold some type of equation between God and the Universe.

    >What are the key differences between duality and non-duality?
    This again can refer to some different things. There is simple subject-object duality, claiming the self (subject) is something over and against the objects perceived externally in the real world. There’s a subject, and it perceives objects, and these are really distinct and separate. This would generally overlap with the position of mind-body dualism as it’s put in some Western philosophy, or substance dualism as it’s put in some ontologies (there are two major distinct things or substances making up the world, the mental or ideal reality and the physical reality of matter).

      Then of course there is duality as applied to theism. This would be that God is a distinct entity from the created world and stands in relation to it as a transcendental creator, completely transcendent to this creation yet having created it. Also called classical theism in Western theology.

      If you ask me, nondual philosophies are interesting in that they seem as if they can be more encompassing and even include for the possibility of dualist philosophies within themselves — namely, they can hold that these dualist philosophies are something like (entirely understandable) illusions that can arise within a fundamentally nondual framework, and can even be expedient or have some valid purpose, even while greater nondual truth encompasses and transcends it. (The apparent duality arises as an illusion within nonduality.)

    duality is about the phsyical universe. non duality is outside that. so they both go together if you learn enough

    Duality: there is good and evil.
    Non-duality: there is no good and evil.

    Duality MUST be true, or else nonduality is false.
