Listening to the above very interesting talk, I am reminded of this
powerful statement of Swami Vidyaranya:

निरूपयितुमारब्धे निखिलैरपि पण्डितै: ।
अज्ञानं पुरतस्तेषां भाति कक्ष्यासु कासुचित् ॥
[Panchadashi 6.143]

143. Even if all the learned people of the world try to determine
the nature of this world, they will find themselves confronted at some
stage or other by ignorance.

Towards the end of this talk he beautifully gives the high Advaitic purport
of the two verses 4 and 5 of the Bh.Gita 9th Chapter:

मया ततमिदं सर्वं जगदव्यक्तमूर्तिना।
मत्स्थानि सर्वभूतानि न चाहं तेष्ववस्थितः।।9.4।।

9.4 This whole world is prevaded by Me in My unmanifest form. All beings
exist in Me, but I am not contained in them!
न च मत्स्थानि भूतानि पश्य मे योगमैश्वरम्।
भूतभृन्न च भूतस्थो ममात्मा भूतभावनः।।9.5।।

9.5 Nor do the beings dwell in Me. Behod My divine Yoga! I am the sustainer
and originator of beings, but My Self is not contained in the beings.
