Everything that seems to arise from the basic self is about protecting the whole [under construction]

Only those who have established themselves as someone special separated from others as an independent being, who has the power to change the world and itself into something better have a need to meditate, because in order to uphold the appearance of you as someone who makes a difference you need more thoughts than those generated by the brain to uphold its basic self, and once you have started this process thoughts keep on coming. You therefore feel the need to slow them down though for example meditation

When meditating, however, more thoughts are coming, because your purpose for doing this is to get more peace and more stillness, so you can become more spiritual – and lots of thoughts are needed to establish you as someone transformed, because there is nothing to transform, as the basic self fabricated by the brain and your ´better´ version of it are equally illusionary, since there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore without beginning and end.

Those who want to stop thoughts are those who always want more, because the more thoughts there seems to be. And when meditating to stop them, even more thoughts are coming, as the purpose is to get more peace, more stillness, so you become more spiritual.

But when the basic self fabricated by the brain is good enough for you and you therefore have no need to make a difference, there is no need be and/or have more, wherefore there is no more thoughts are coming than those needed for keeping together this simple self and not much thoughts are needed for that _ just like not much thoughts are needed for driving a self-driving car. Everything is taken care of, so you can just sit back and enjoy the ride.

In fact the basic self fabricated by the brain is very much to be compared to a self-driving car. It is a thing with no will of its own, no soul or anything else than mechanical parts that obeys the commands it gets based on what is coming from its sensors. Read more about that here.

There are no conflicts that are not solved because all the commands you get are based on what is best for the whole. But problems starts to occur, when you believe you have a free will and that you are someone special, who are separated from others as an independent being, who has the power to change the world and itself into something better.

It is like playing Monopoly and thinking you can change its world and its cars into something more lovingly. It is not possible, because there is no more than the way the world of the game is made. Besides that, it is not real, so there is no need to change anything. Thus you may as well enjoy appearing to be a very basic car in the world of Monopoly exactly as it is made.
