What is life, where does it come from, and what is the meaning of it?

In the world everything is limited by time and space.

Since life is formless and therefore endless, a world limited by time and space is lifeless. Thus it makes no sense, in such a world, to ask what life is. Besides, life is that which is one and you need more than one to be aware of it, so it cannot be known. Thus there is nothing to know unless you imagine being in a world where there seems more than one. And since such a world is non-existing, anything you believe to know is an illusion.

As everything in a world defined by time and space has a beginning and an end, most expect the answer to the question in the headline to start in a resourceful way and finish with a wise conclusion. But this is not possible. That which is life is formless and therefore without beginning and end, so it cannot be described. Only something that can be defined by time and space can be explained. And that is easy. It does not exist because life is formless and therefore endless, so something defined by time and space is an illusion.

You will not get a more insightful promising answer about life at the end of the article, nor if you pay something, as it is common in many articles on the internet, to get the full answer. Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings have something to sell because they are nothing. That is why, if you keep reading them, the experience of something is exposed as nothing, wherefore there, eventually, does not appear to be something that hides the formlessness of life.

No answer in a dream can explain what and where you are in there because you are not in the dream but in your bed.

On the internet, you can assemble a personality through manipulated photos and fake opinions to make it appear as if you are someone you are not. Basically, the only thing needed for this to work is electricity to power up your choice of media for the connection with the internet. Yet, there is no electricity in your appearance in cyberspace. Nor are you or anybody else there.

Likewise, that which makes it possible to imagine you are someone in a physical world is not in it. There is a significant difference in this comparison, though. The appearance of a world in cyberspace is an illusion, that, within the context of the physical world, is constructed from zeros and ones, added together in different combinations. But the illusion of a physical world is not built from anything. Life is formless, so nothing specific can be created from it.

This image is just zeros and ones added together in different combinations. If the combinations seem strange to you, you probably try to reorganise them into a collectively agreed image of the world. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The experience of being someone substantial in a tangible world can be compared to a world where there is nothing but one machine. It has been programmed to experience specific signals as if it is thinking and others as if it is feeling something specific caused by somebody outside of it. Hence it concludes, that it is someone substantial in a tangible world with like-minded beings. See the illustration in the paragraph To know is to be in duality in the article Duality is a simulated reality on top of non-duality.

To spell it out, the experience of you in a world defined by time and space is an illusion, that seems to be real if you believe the brain when it claims, it has processed what you experience based on signals from your sensory system received from a world outside of you.

One might be able to explain, why the fantasy of Santa Claus appeals to children. Likewise, one might be able to point out why grown-ups keep believing the experience of being someone in a world defined by time and space is real.

When you wear a headset from Oculus VR, for example, you do not see yourself and the world as you are used to. Instead, you may see your legs covered by a red spacesuit when you turn your head down. And when you look up, you may notice the ceiling of a spaceship, that you appear to be flying. The world you knew, before you took on the glasses seems to have been replaced by a more exciting world, where you can fly and whatnot.

But what you believe in being and seeing is an illusion. Likewise what and where you believe to be in a world defined by time and space. There is one difference, though, nobody is watching itself as somebody else in a world defined by time and space. It is not possible because reality is that which is one and since it takes more than one to have a shape, it is formless and therefore endless. Hence there is nothing definable to be seen.

Reading this, however, you believe it is possible to be and see something specific. Thus we go on as if this is valid in order to challenge this belief within its context.

While believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is best to give it your best shot. Because if not, you denounce what makes it possible for no-one to have this fantasy of more than one, namely that which is one.

All experiences are fabricated by the brain regardless of where you perceive they come. The brain, however, can only process something definable, so it cannot display the formlessness of oneness.

You cannot see the power station in your living room. Yet it is due to that, your room is illuminated by night, so that you can experience the room.

You may long for oneness and try to implement it in the world where you believe to be. But it is a world of separation – otherwise, there would not seem to be more than one. Thus it has no room for oneness.

It is, however, that which is one that makes it possible to experience more than one because there is nothing else than oneness, which is why the experience of more than one is an illusion that is over the same moment it began. What and where you believe in being, therefore, is nothing but after images of the illusion. Read more about that here.

Although there is no oneness in these after images of a world where there seems to be more than one, they are empowered by that which is one. Hence they are symbols of oneness.

The more your experience that, the less the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one appears to make a difference. Hence there is nothing to uphold the belief in separation.

Since there is no more than that which is one, a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion. That is why there is no answer to who you are in such a world. There is, however, an answer to why you believe in being there. You want to be and have more than that which is one.

As there is nothing real in a world where there seems to be more than one, hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life is, of course, also an illusion. But since the application of the hack undoes the belief in being someone at all, it can be used as your way back to that which is one.

This is not to suggest that you have your own way. There is no way out of a world where there seems to be more than one because there is no more than that which is one. But since it feels so good to perceive everything in such a world as symbols of oneness, and since it does not matter what you do is when perceived as a symbol of that which is one, why not apply hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life.

Doing so both the illusion of the hack and the world in which you appear to have been applied by someone will be undone – or rather the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.
