+ Pretending is freedom from self-deception

Any interaction will do to make you seem alive as a person in the world – also if you are only looking at others. This relation confirms you to be ´there´.

Interaction is needed in order to uphold the belief, that you are someone definitive in world defined by time and space. But whether the interaction is judged to be negative or positive does not matter, because in spite of you feeling rejected or loved, the belief that you are someone definitive in world defined by time and space has been confirmed.

If your lover leaves you, there are many opportunities for discussing this with somebody, who appear to be different from you, and if not you can always have an inner discussion with what you judge to be others, so that your identity as someone special is confirmed.

As long as you believe there is an interaction with others, it seems to confirm you are someone definitive, regardless this interaction seems to be imaginary or real, because all experiences are an illusion fabricated by the very same organ in the brain.*

Problems are needed to keep a conversation going, so if you are happily together with someone, you can always create a drama about your apparent differences. In a drama the importance of you as someone definitive is enhanced. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You can only feel alive in a virtual world, if you imagine to be someone there
The whole world is built upon the idea of being together – especially as a family. Belonging to a special group you appear to be accepted as if you are special too. That is, if you also confirm others in the group in the way dictated by the group. If not you will be expelled. See also the article Coming from the heart is denial of that which is one.

This is not a problem though, if it is OK with you to be an outsider, because as an outsider you are also confirmed as being someone special.

Interaction and joining communities are basically what social media is about. The purpose of this is to be acknowledged by one or more groups, so that you are defined as someone special through your communication with the ´right´ ones..

Nowadays, contrary to the days before the internet, young ones do not a have an urgent need for a girl/boyfriend. The interaction needed to be confirmed as someone special, they get from social media, where they join specific groups in which they build an image of themselves as a very interesting person.

The imagination of somebody else, that has done something specific for you to see, makes you feel alive as someone definitive. And the more interaction a post of yours seem to cause on Facebook, the more you seem to be part of something special, and being that is the way to appear as if you are a real person in a virtual world.

In the virtual world of Facebook the participants believe, that there are other persons than themselves ´there´. The belief is based on the assumption that what they read on the screen is written by somebody else although it may as well have been written by a robot.** Besides eyes cannot read. They just transfer the info of the light hitting them to the brain, that translates it in accordance with its conditioning, which basis is that you are someone definitive in a world of like-minded ones.***

The man appearing in this pic with his daughter is hardly ´there´ anymore, but the daughter by his side wants to imagine him as a person in the world, the way he used to be, even though he himself may not remember that, or that it is his daughter by his side helping him to appear in the world.

The man appearing in this image with his daughter is hardly able to make it´there´, but the daughter by his side wants to imagine him as a person in the world in the way he used to be, as that person is the proof of her being someone. Her father though may not remember what he was like, or that it is his daughter by his side. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Only that which is not real needs to be imagined
Interaction is the name of the game, if a virtual world is to be felt as if it is real. The interaction is facilitated by you imagining what other people think. Hence what they appear to be is an imagination of yours, and since what you believe to be is based on this imagination, any interaction between you and others is your own fantasy.

To pretend is a way to set yourself free from this imagination of interacting with others, as if there is more than that which is one, because what and where you pretend to be you are not.

Pretending to take part in for example the world of Super Mario or Monopoly, even though you are not really there, can be quite entertaining. But to belief that you actually are there is imprisonment.

Pretending is freedom from the imagined
Freedom is to pretend, you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, even though that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one and therefore cannot be in a world defined by time and space.

Doing so you are free from the need of joining with others in a special group of two or more – and so you are free to pretend to being someone who is with others in a special group of two or more or whatever seem to fit the person, you pretend to be.
