4 more awakened than thou

He said "I am that" and they thought "oh, wow, he is THAT, he must be so awake"

Then another said "I AM" and they said how this one must be even more awake as he AM, he is, he is not even associating with the all, with the 'that' but saying he 'is' with the statement 'I AM'.

Another said simply and grandly "I" and they were blown away at how this one was I! just the I! no further distinctions, he must really be the one and the all, truth manifest!

And one said ".." and stood mouth open and still. They said of him "Wow, such powerful silence, this one is truly the one of truth."

Then he fell over and they pointed, "He's dead, he's gone and bloomin' died, he wasn't enlightened at all, he just went and carked it before saying a word. He was probably just trying to think of something to say and... Look.. " they said, kicking at his body "Dead as the pig I had for lunch last week, dead as Elvis, bleedin' liar!!"
