The Self is the only Seer of the World, if one is seen. The World, in turn, does not itself see the Self. Existence is Consciousness, & the Self is That. There is no existence apart from Consciousness, the Self. Realizing the Truth of the Self, one sees that there is no World. It is not that the Seer of Truth does not see the World, as if this Knowledge were a sensory (deprived one) state, but rather, the Seer of Truth sees that there is no World. The Seer of Truth is the Self, & the Self is indivisible, non–objective, without an exterior, undifferentiated, & 1–without–a–2nd. Consciousness, infinite & undivided, sees none but itSelf. The which is not Consciousness does not see at all. Lacking Being, it also lacks knowing. As the Self, one does not see the World, & the World does not see oneself.
In Non-Duality, Being alone is Real. The World has never come to be, so it is said to be completely unreal. The World never was, is not, & never will be. The uncreated, unmodified, worldless Absolute alone is. That alone is, & That you are. The Real ever is, & the unreal has never come to be. The conclusion about this is known by the Knowers of Truth.
