Sounds like there is beautiful landscape there.

Yeah smoking mirrors is the same as fog.

You ever notice in fog you can't see to far ahead of you? ;)

Maybe because there isn't much too far ahead of me. 8-)

Two abstract mirrors face each other and contain infinite copies of the reflections of each other.

Reality is much like that as each moment in time is a reflection between the juxtaposition of a duality of apparent opposites and as such, the non-duality is an illusion of identity.

The finite contains the infinite in a paradox of existence.

Yep that is definitely a macro perception to birthing new consciousness.
People don't like grasping those kinds of things.

Hopefully malai5 can chime in and add his perspective on duality, infinity, and how three things create a finite non-dual unity.

Suffering is a relative experience of perception, in a 3D world of causality.
