Some Nutty Looking Scientist Said this.

This is from that documentary "What the Bleep do we know?"  
we know what an observer does from the perspective of quantum physics 
but we don't know who or what the observer actually is.
it doesnt mean we haven't tried to find an answer, we've looked!
we've gone inside of your head, we've gone into every orphace you have to find something called an observer, and theres nobody home.
There's nobody in the brain.
theres nobody in the cortical regions of the brain
theres nobody in the sub cortical regions of the brain or the limbic regions of the brain.
there's nobody there called "observer" 
and yet we all have this experience of being something called an observer observing the world out there. 
I've read like 3 pages from Bruce Lee's "Tao of Jeet Kune Do" simply because I want to learn JKD, and more about the ideas behind it.

In those first pages it seems more like a book of maxims. Like there are short paragraphs of wisdom separated by lines. One of those paragraphs say this.
The point is the doing of them rather than the accomplishments. There is no actor but the action; there is no experience but the experience.  
My interests have taken a very steep shift and these are only two bits of stuff I found very intersting.

Honestly the most profound insight comes from personal exploration. But for the sake of credibility I thought I've add similar thoughts from physicists and big respectable figures like Bruce. It may not be entirely necessary but it may help.

Whats the point of this post? To make the point that there is no 'you'.
