Self is Beyond Birth, Beyond Death, Beyond Change.

the answer to the question - what is life? - is self. self is one - division there is none. yes. self is unborn, deathless and changeless. that which is born, that which dies, that which changes truly is self. self is. self always is. self is the unmoved mover which desires to perceive movement* not to be by itself, to experience companionship, to love and be loved in return. but any movement or change including time is all self. self moves itself not to be by itself. self moves itself to be able to experience companionship. self moves itself for love. all this for love, not to be alone. (* motion as well as spacetime is self-perceived for the purpose of companionship otherwise known as love)
