However, seeing/being the full picture of what is, one sees that thought arising in a context, including history, various events in memory, in a manner that all perceptual events are mutually defining and co-arising. So, history, experience, time, breathing, air, food, a planet, space, thought, etc., are all mutually arising without division - past, present, and future, so this event is perceived, including whatever sense of separation (my race vs. that other race, mistrust, etc.)

I wonder if observers have noticed how when you want to urge unity, you give an example of race and ethnic distinctions to be overcome, while when I wanted to highlight differences, I juxtaposed a starving Somalian child and a rich Westchester resident, evolutionary science and creationism, etc. Rhetorical flourishes are big, no?
