Further background on the question of the Self you can find here:

Summery:
Throughout the history, one of the deepest questions mankind has asked itself is the question of its true self identity: who am I?

Philosophers like Rene Descartes, John Locke and others, have tried to answer this question without success.
Yet the question “who am I” does have a clear answer. An answer that was known to several eastern philosophies, such as Advaita Vedanta and Jnana Yoga, and was presented in the past by people like Ramana Maharshi and Nisargadatta Maharaj,
but this answer was reached through a meditative process of self inquiry, and therefore, couldn’t be easily explained to someone who hasn’t experienced this process by himself.

In This video, I am revealing the answer to the true Identity of the self with a step by step self inquiry, in a way that is comprehensible to everyone…

Who am I then? watch the video to find the answer…

    Existence cannot be conceptualized because it is prior to thought. If existence cannot be conceptualized it is not an object. If not object, then not subject to time.

    When explaining the part we are not the body, he could have made reference to the hindu story that says that throughout the lifetime one replaces all of the atoms, meaning none of the atom he was born with is there when he dies

    Deep thinking, I will appreciate it… Even I am much interested about these topics and I got my view on this video and it says as follows "Consciousness means I must be aware of it.. Then how you came to conclusion that I = CONSCIOUSNESS…" Hope You will find time to reply me….

    I did not see the image. My brain did. I could be just considered a powerful brain. If the visual cortex is damaged, I could not image images like that.

    The "I" isnt always conscious so how that be actual consciousness? Its more like consciousness is an act of this "I" because the "I" always does something you could call "unconsciousness", or if you called this "I" "existence" itself, well that be wrong too cause you'd have to include non existence since it "does" non existence also, hindu's call it advaita which is good but still doesnt hit the nail on the head

    Consciousness is both dependent and independent of mind! Dependent in the sense that we carry all the actions of our this body with us to our next body but independent int the sense that we don't are unconscious about those past actions!

    I will save you a lot of time saying that You are not even individual conscioussness. First step is to understand that You are not the body, but second step is to admit that you are not conscioussness also. Individual conscioussness is one of many. But That Who You Really Are is One. You can be only what is One. And One is Everything.

    Also you have explained well that the I is the consciousness, it is the experiencer & the observer. But is it also the decision maker and the do-er? Who is the boss? Who/What is accountable and responsible for all actions/inactions?

    Really well explained and well made video Tsur. However I'm a bit confused about something. At around 0:28 you say that many people think wrongly that ""I" is an abstract concept, a product of our mind, it is not a real thing". To which you definitively claim "The truth is that I is not a made up concept, it's a real phenomenon, In fact it's the one most real thing in your life".
    But later in the video at 7:53 you say "This gives rise to new questions to which I don't have an answer to: "is consciousness a product of the brain as scientists believe today? Or is it independent of the brain?"
    So initially you refute the claim by many that "I" is a product of our mind/brain, but later you say you don't have the answer to the question whether it is a product of the brain as scientists believe today. Perhaps what you are saying is, "I could be a product of the brain/mind, but this doesn't make it unreal or an illusion. It is a real thing"?

    There are a lot of assumptions in this video.
    Bad thought experiment.

    +Lucid thinking  The Greatest Question still remains : Is consciousness independent of our body and mind ? If it is , then will we ever be born again after we die in another body as the same "WE" or will we be gone for ever ?

    How can we experience consciousness without the brain? Or the body or mind?
    Is the product of the body or brain or mind?
