A: I see. K: I never thought, when I was educated in England and all the rest of it, that I was European. I never was caught in that trap. I don't know how it happened, I was never caught in that trap. A: Well, when you were quite little then and your playmates said to you, well now look, you are a Hindu, what did you say? K: I probably put on Hinduism and all the trappings of Brahmin, tradition, but it never penetrated deeply. A: As we say in the vernacular, it never got to you. K: It never got to me, that's right.

This is what is going on. A: Well let's say the issue from it is hell. K: Yes. So in my relationship with you what place has knowledge, the past, the image which is the observer, all that is the observer, what place has the observer in our relationship? Actually the observer is the factor of division. A: Right. K: And therefore the conflict between you and me, this is what is going on in the world everyday. A: Then one would have to say, it seems to me, following the conversation point by point, that the place of this observer, understood as you have pointed out, is the point of dysrelationship.

K: Propaganda is not truth. Repetition is not truth. A: It's a form of violence too. K: That's just it. So a mind that merely observes doesn't react to what it observes according to its conditioning. Which means there is no observer at anytime, therefore no division. It happened to me, I don't know how it happened, but it has happened. And in observing all this I've seen in every human relationship, every kind of human relationship, there is this kind of relationship there is this division and therefore violence.
