No, not really. "There's only Ones" is not understanding, it's thinking. And it's as untrue as "there are two kinds of people." One or two, still in handcuffs.

You didnt get what I said.  Youre still fixated on *thinking* and *attachments*. 

There are no cuffs that can hold you when you have only your Self to answer to.

As Shunyro Suzuki said on his deathbed, dying of cancer, *Dont feel sorry for me.  I know who I really am.*

Ones, or more, who is or isnt, whats the difference ?

There just is: Things as It is.

Its the only view that squares with both religion and science,

as Einstein put it, *Nothing exists except the energy that everything is made of.*

Whether you view that oneness of everything as a *conscious self* or a current happenstance of evolutionary atomic science, It just is whatever It is being. 

At the present, I would say It must have self-consciousness or you could not be conscious of yourself.
