Three sages are on a mountain concentrating their consciousness in pursuit of the divine. After some time one person experiences the true nature of their soul and relished the bliss of that realisation.
The second person seeing this transformation, and not wishing to be outdone by the first, imitates the first person’s behavior without the internal experience of the divine substance of the soul.
The third person sees the second person imitation and is disgusted by the obviously false
dramatisation of spiritual life gets up a leaves convinced that the soul does not exist.
The first person is fine and self satisfied while other two engage in an endless argument over
the existence of the soul while missing out discovering the nature of their true eternal self.
