What is the Universe but Self.

The answer to the question - what is the universe? - is self. Yes it is correct to note that the universe is everything and nothing and that it includes all of space, and all the matter and energy that space contains. And of course, it even includes time itself as well as all of us as one for we are. And yes, the earth and the moon are part of the universe, as are the other planets and their many dozens of moons. Now. That which is the universe verily is self. Self is one... one not wanting to be alone. Hence the reason of diversity. Diversity is Self embracing itself out of this innate desire for companionship. Otherness for the purpose of togetherness? Yes. Very true. Truly simple. Self perceives otherness so it could experience togetherness. Thus a paradox self is not. Now as in the beginning... all diversity is self-desired, self-created and self-perceived for Companionship. Is that so? Yes. So is that. Self is diverse not to be by itself. Self is diverse for companionship. Self is diverse for friendship. Self is diverse to love and be loved. When it is said that all this is according to one's own love it means that, at any time, there is only oneself and that self is undivided but diverse for companionship, friendship, love. In conclusion; diversity does not imply division. The meaning of life is love.
