The Origin of Self is Self.

The answer to the question - what is the origin of Life? - is Self. In the beginning was Self? Self knows no beginning. Self knows no end. Self always is. Self is One but perceives itself as Two not to be alOne. Aloneness aka loneliness is the cause and Companionship aka Love is the purpose. That which is Life is Self desiring Love. There where otherness is perceived is Self desiring Togetherness. Togetherness is a synonym for Companionship, Friendship, Love.
