In the ultimate scheme of things, opposing perspectives are non-separate from each other — their existence depends on each other. A perspective wouldn’t and couldn’t even exist without its correlating opposite.
While you spend time wrapping your head around that, keep in mind that just because perspectives are non-separate doesn’t mean they are equal. In fact, their non-separation is dependent on them being opposite from each other, not equal.
So let’s use a simple real life example. Say one person is ‘against’ war and the other person is ‘for’ war. Well, it’s self evident, with a few seconds of reflection, that one can’t be ‘against’ war unless others are ‘for’ war…and vice versa. Interesting right?
Well the deeper significance is that they are both dependent on each other — they are non-separate. They exist because of each other. They couldn’t exist without the other. However, they are quite obviously different perspectives — opposite perspectives even.They aren’t at all equal.
This is a crazy fascinating but essential paradox to keep in mind in any conflict scenario — non-separate does not translate to equal.
