(+) That which is you is not someone definitive

For an illusion to not be real there must be something real from where the illusion is imagined.

If life is not an illusion but a world defined by time and space is, there is no life in it. Hence life cannot be known, while you appear to be someone definitive in such a world. What can be known though is what is not life.

If you within the context of a world defined by time and space are playing a game like Monopoly, you experience its world within the limitations of that game. Likewise, when you appear to be in a world defined by time and space, you experience it within its definitions – and just like there is nothing to transform in Monopoly, because it is all an illusion, there is nothing to transform in a world defined by time and space, because the reality of life is formless, and what is formless is endless, so there is no world defined by time and space.

Since life is formless, there is no life in a world defined by time and space.

In other words, it is not possible to experience that which is life, while you believe to be someone in a world defined by time and space. But it is possible to pretend living life there – even though everything has a beginning and an end and therefore is without life – knowing that when the illusion ends, that life is there, as it also was, while you pretended being something you are not. But you can only pretend to be something, you are not, because that which is you is real. A world, where you are not, would not be possible to imagine, if not for that which is real.

Appearing to be where you are not, there is no need to think about it, when and how it ends, since it is only in an illusion, that something appears to end. In reality, there is just one perpetual present.

It is an illusion, that you are not in reality. That which is you is real it cannot be in an illusion. You may think so, and you may try to fabricate causation, so that it seems, as if you are, where you are not. Cause and effect though is all a matter of belief, so if you do not believe, you were caused by something, you are not an effect of it. Hence your appearance as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space is not real but a symbol of that which is, as without that it is not possible to experience something illusionary.

My cats world is meussurable to be about 500 meters around my house. They may sense what humans call the ocean in the distance, but to them it may be part of a mystic experience.

Life cannot be defined by time and space
Life cannot be defined by time and space, and as everything in the world one way is measured by that, life is not in the world. Hence you cannot know, what life is when you look at the world.

It is like trying to know, what the wind is when you look at a tree that is broken because of it, or the grass that it has bent or the sound produced by it in the leaves. The wind cannot be defined through those definable events. None of those definable things is the wind – it cannot be known via events caused by it. The same applies to electricity for example. It cannot be known by experiencing what is illuminated by an electric lamp.

Life is smaller than the smallest atom, so small that it that it cannot be defined by time and space. It seems like nothing compared to a world where everything is defined by time and space. Yet it is due to that which appears to be is nothing, that a world where there seems to be something appears to be experienced.

Some may argue, that chakras, aura and mystic experiences cannot be measured by time and space. But there are already ways to take photos of the aura. Besides so-called spiritual experiences – like all other experiences – are basically electrical impulses that can be measured in the brain.

The world – including worlds beyond it – consists only of measurable things. If you shrunk yourself to be an ant, the world, that you normally see close to you, is extremely far away and may be experienced as a world beyond – but it is not. Infinity is also measurable. It is a concept, deduced from what is finite. In other words, it is a finite infinity.

Life is smaller than the smallest atom, so small that it that it cannot be defined by time and space. It seems like nothing compared to a world where everything is defined by time and space. Yet it is due to that which appears to be is nothing, that a world where there seems to be something appears to be experienced.

There is no ego to get rid of, neither is there any self, soul, higher states, god or whatever to find. Those concepts are ideas conceived within the framework of a world defined by time and space and reality cannot be defined.

You cannot remember that which is one, because it takes more than one to remember

You cannot remember that which is you when you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, because that which is you is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to remember. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You cannot remember that which is you, because that is oneness, and it takes more than one to remember. But while you think, you are in a world where there seems to be more than one, you can remember this is not possible.

In that which is one, there is nothing to remember, since that requires past and future, and it is one perpetual present.

It helps to remember this by perceiving your appearance as a symbol of that which makes it possible to perceive yourself as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, namely that which is one.

Your role is to appear as a person defined by time and space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.To give it your best shot is so fulfilling.

Your role in the reality tv show called The World is to appear as if you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. You better give it your best shot, because you cannot leave the show before the judge is satisfied with your performance. There is only one to judge, namely you!. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The world is to be compared to a reality show in which your role is to appear as if you someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. You will be judged for your performance, so give it your best shot. The judge though is not the one you perceive to direct the show, neither what you experience to be the other actors, but you!

In the reality tv show called The world, you have to take good care of the person, you are pretending to be there. If not, you will not have the energy to help the others in the show. Ultimately you cannot help anybody, because they are no more than the formlessness of that which is one, as what is formless is endless. But in the reality show you can help others by confirming, that it is their choice how to perceive it, so though they cannot change the show, they can always choose another perception of it.

You can help them to make another choice by not looking at the thoughts, feelings and actions, that seem to define them, but instead look for that which makes it possible to experience this, namely that which is life. By confirming that life is what makes it possible to experience anything at all, you set them free from your judgment of them as someone definitive, and when they are free from your judgment, so are you.

Knowing that life is the reason, you can see the world, your eyes become a symbol of that which is life, and so that is what you experience when you see the world, namely that it is a symbol of that which is life.

What you see is what you have, and what you have you give. What you give you receive.

So the above does not mean, that you actually need to tell the world anything or to make it understand, that it is everybody´s own choice how to perceive it. Nobody but you need to acknowledge this because the world is in the eye of the beholder.

  1. […] To give and receive is the same. It is all happening in you. The perception of what seems to be outside, you can only have, because you have it inside. Nobody can change anything for you, and you do not have to change anything, because you have everything. And so if you think, you miss anything, it is just because you pretend to be what you are not. You are not a person in the world. […]
