An excellent poser.:-)
Awareness of the arising thought, it's travel in time and it's dissipation........is not another thought.
If it is....then that's mentation and the entire hoopla is back.
Jidu was talking about mentation, where essentially the self is just the thought-in-movement.
For example, the sense of an individual self, as separated from other-self,..... is essentially the thought of it.
In the state of dreaming it is the dreamt-self which is the consequentual inference of the dreamt-thought.
In the state of deep sleep, there is no thought, (including the thought "that there is no thought"), and ergo no self.
In awareness of thought, there is no "you" being aware of thought.
There is awareness, in which arises the biological sentient object through which "fashioned" thought, fashioned by the intrinsic-conditioning-in-the-moment-in-the object....
...arises, runs for a duration and dissipates.
As,..... arises, runs for a duration and dissipates....the very object acting as a conduiting instrument for thought.
