One Without a Second

Said Uddalaka to Shvetaketu:
"In the beginning was only Being,
One without a second.
Out of himself he brought forth the cosmos
And entered into everything in it.
There is nothing that does not come from him.
Of everything he is the inmost Self.
He is the truth; he is the Self supreme.
You are that, Shvetaketu; you are that."

-Chandogya Upanishad

Identification is the greatest Sin.
I, you, it are just personal pronouns.
Is, are, being verbs.
That has no meaning. Except in contrast with this.
Thinking is never new. It is never free.
