That is deep. Reading from the book, I infer that experience is all about ‘pure consciousness’ manifesting itself. When there was no experience, consciousness was ‘being’ ( and is still being). That dimension of pure consciousness is seemingly out of human mind perceptions. To ‘experience’ something is using the senses and the mind to process the stimulus. So I think experience and mind go hand in hand.
But as consciousness expresses into the ‘mind’,it creates experiences for us or ‘qualia’. What ultimately exists is consciousness, while experience is just a manifestation. However, I believe that one can grow out of sensual experiences to the level of not really experiencing but just ‘being’ in pure state of consciousness- the ‘Ah ha’ moment.
