You can’t fully explain Reality by pointing to metaphors (including words or ideas). You can’t explain the Whole by pointing at the part. Since the Whole is consciousness, the Whole can only be fully identified as it is experienced as consciousness. When one is experiencing form- that is, differentiation of any kind- one is not experiencing the Whole. Take care then when attempting to explain some things by using other things- any time you are doing that, you are not fully explaining Big Truth, or All That Is.
