Replace consciousness with direct experience.

Call it whatever it is but something is apparently happening

Pure reality has no quality. You'll have to see for yourself if you can be aware without any quality.

It isn't even something happening.

It isn't an I thinking.

The idea that your direct experience, is direct experience isn't even true.

It just is.

What is is. This cannot be known or unknown. 
 

Consciousness is just a convoluted word which means nothing compared to what is.

Consciousness is direct knowing. 

Is there something beyond this direct knowing that you call reality? Well no one can know that for sure but one can believe that there is.

@WokeBloke

NOW you seem to be asking right questions ?. If there is no "perception" of something then it is not happening in present moment which means it does not exist. In case you have seen, there is no "perception" of time, perception, consciousness, I, gravity, control, etc. Direct "experience" cannot be denied though, because I guess you agree that the "sensations" are happening.


Who told you that "others" are real?

What are you? Nothing at all. There is no 'I'.

Within the nothing, there is awareness. Not awareness "of" anything in particular. Just awareness.

As soon as awareness kicks in, the 'I' and thus duality and the whole circus soon follows.

Awareness alone can be tasted but not maintained. 

Maintaining "awareness of" is a noble goal. 


All paths lead to a deeper unreality.

There is experience happening thats for sure.And its happening within consciousness. If you will deny that that basically means you use your experience to say that there is no experience.. Kinda silly..

Consciousness is everything and everyone, everywhere, at all times. It stands up to all doubt.

Illusions are created in consciousness. Nothingness is created in consciousness. Void is created in consciousness. "No consciousness" is created in consciousness.

You are conscious. Therefore consciousness exists. There is no way around this.

"Simply enough, you cannot suffer the illusion that you are conscious because illusions are possible only for conscious minds. This is so incandescently obvious that it is almost embarrassing to have to state it."
- David Bentley Hart

 

"I think we should feel very sober, and a little afraid, at the power of human credulity, the capacity of human minds to be gripped by theory, by faith. For this particular denial [of the existence of consciousness] is the strangest thing that has ever happened in the whole history of human thought, not just the whole history of philosophy."
- Galen Strawson
