you mean a test to find out if someone is able to really switch off (like in deep sleep) ?
... sounds good
So ähnlich.. . It's like a "T-T" for fabricated/unfabricated mind. Fabricated mind is consciousness, unfabricated mind is primordial knowledge/transparency.
Test & Task: Don't focus on anything. Now. [..after some minutes..] If you don't focus on anything, you focus on "don't focus on anything", right? This is an fabricated trance. Some
people call this "practice" or "meditation", most
people don't know anything about their fabricated trance. But a focus on "don't focus on anything" does not comply with the task "don't focus on anything", therefore the task is not about "practice" or "practiced nonpractice". If you focus on "don't focus on anything", you fall into an special state of consciousness with a lot of "experiences" like "open mind" and stuff. But all this "experiences" are grounded on a big mistake, because you construct an fabricated reified concept
out of "don't focus on anything". Therefore the quality of "don't focus on anything'nes
" seems to appear. This quality is like some-thing which monitors all. You can call it subject or observer, seems to be reified-identified with everything. The task is misunderstood as a reified concept, because the reified-identified quality want to have something from "don't focus on anything". You can detect this expectations, if you understand the difference between your fabricated practiced task and the factual task. After you understand the difference exactly, don't focus on anything. Or leave everything as it is, which is the same. That's primordial unfabricated looseness. Since it is completely unfabricated, the reified concept of an "origin" doesn't matter
from itself. This knowledge
is immediate obvious, primordial not to distinct from appearences.
