Pretending to chitchat about pretending

You can pretend to be someone, who believes in god and you can also pretend to be someone, who does not believe in god. It does not make a difference, because what you pretend you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You can pretend to be a person, who see a cup as half full or half empty. It is the same amount you see, but how this amount is interpreted depends on the person you choose to pretend.

Feeling bad is also to play a game. You can pretend to be a happy person instead, if you choose so.

If there is someone you do not like, then you have chosen to pretend being a person, who do not like a specific person. But you can choose to pretend being a person, who likes that person, if that will make pretending to be a person easier for you.

Pretending to be a person makes it very real that this person is not real and that what is not pretended is real. This cannot be known as a person, because a person is not real. That is why you pretend being a person.

In the moments before death it can be almost impossible – or entirely impossible – to pretend being a person or any other things, as you need fully functioning brain to do this. Yet having pretended to be a person until this moment is a big help when the body is about to stop breathing, because it is very easy to leave something pretended behind.

Even though we know, that all the things James Bond is doing in the movies are not really possible for one man to do, it is fun to pretend that it is possible. But to confuse James Bond with your appearance could be fatal. He is not real, but neither is the person you appear to be. Knowing that, the world of duality becomes a game, where you pretend to be.

When you have nothing to live up to you are free to pretend being a person, who lives up to the expectations of the world.

There is no need to search for that which is you, because it is not in the world. Just like you are not in a game, that you are playing. Consequently all that you can find there is what you are not. That is what you find, when pretend to be a person in a world of duality.
