Maya has already placed the eternal living being in a machine made of matter controlled by the material AI of mind, intelligence and false ego (identification that I am the machine). Real means eternal and false means temporary. The universe and everything in it (aside from the eternal living being) is temporary. Maya covers our original spiritual consciousness, that I am eternally an individual living being.

Love that last sentence. I'll be writing much more on the essential self in the next two posts in the series, this was just the start—maya lite, if you will!

I don't agree though, that the material world is machine-like. I see it as an expression of the formless, as condensed energy in constant flux. The nondual way is always through: we arrive at the formless through forms, we touch reality by seeing through illusion, we reach the eternal through the transient, because each polarity is part of the other. Thanks for reading and commenting.

You visited Vrindavana, Krishna's home. He says in Bhagavad-gita 18.61 "The Supreme Lord is situated in everyone's heart, O Arjuna, and is directing the wanderings of all living entities, who are seated as on a machine, made of the material energy."
