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

PART 1:
As everything in a world defined by time and space has a beginning and an end, one would expect the answer to the question in the headline to have a beginning. But that is not possible, because that which is life has no beginning or end.

There is no answer hidden at the end of the article
Many articles on the internet start with a teaser or question about how to get more energy, avoid heart attacks, or other things that are hard to answer, but that the article promise to do if you read on.

Unfortunately, you often have to read page after page without really getting an answer, or maybe after much reading, you might be told you will get it if you pay for a subscription to the website. It is not like that in this article.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not trying to sell you something, neither to convince you something, as there is nothing real in the world defined by time and space. The purpose of questions is normally only to make it appear as if there is something real to be found in the world.

An answer that answers nothing
Life can only create, that which it is, and as it is without a beginning and an end it cannot create something with a beginning an end. In other words, you and everything else appearing to be in the world defined by time and space are lifeless.

No answers within a dream is able to explain, what and where the dreamer is, because the dreamer is not in the dream.

In the world everything is limited by time and space.

There is no more than the oneness of life. There is nothing outside of it, because it is formless and therefore endless. As you need more than one to have an opinion about what it is, and where it comes from it is not possible to answer this or any other question except if you imagine a world where there seems more than one.

Yet there is no life in such a world, as there is no more than that which is one, In other words, such a world is an illusion and hence all answers are illusionary as well. Just like any answer in a dream is just as much a part of it as a question it seems to answer.

Life does not know the meaning of it, neither does it know what it is, because that requires more than one and life is that which is one.

All answers in a virtual world are virtual
It is common knowledge, that the world of the internet is virtual, and that you can pretend to be there as any personality, that you are able to make the other virtual personalities accept as part of the world. Basically, the only thing needed for this to work is electricity to power up your choice of media for connecting with the internet.

You can, therefore, say it is due to the power of electricity, you are able to have fun in cyberspace. Yet you cannot see or feel the electricity there. It is not in the virtual world, that you experience due to it.

Feelings are thoughts made tangible, which can be compared to flavour enhanced food, that even though it tastes of more, leaves you with a desire for more.

You project thoughts out in cyberspace, which seems to respond to you. But it is just your own response to the thoughts you projected out, that you seem to receive. Those reactions of thoughts you make tangible by converting them into feelings, so it appears, as you are touched by what you touch although it is nothing but illusions appearing due to the power of electricity.

Everything that appears in a world simulated by an electronic media has basically been there from the beginning. All appearances are just zeros and ones added together in different combinations. You may think you can change or improve something, but no matter what you do, it is still the same zeros and ones added together in different combinations.

There is no difference between this virtual world and the so-called real world. What is called the real world is just as artificial as the virtual one. Whether you seem to be chatting with somebody on the internet or in the so-called real world is all the same. It is all make-believe.

There is no life in the universe – just like there is no electricity in the virtual world of an electronic media.

In the same way as the virtual world of an electronic media is powered by electricity, which cannot be experienced in it – at least not without dying – the whole universe is powered by something you cannot see before you leave it, namely that which is life. And even then it cannot be seen, because life is that which is one and it takes more than one to see something.

A virtual world is nowhere and has no life – yet it is only possible to perceive it due to life
There is a significant difference in the above comparison of a virtual world in an electronic media and the universe. The virtual world of an electronic media is – within the context of the universe – build by zeros and ones, but the universe is not built by anything. It is totally illusionary. There is nothing else than the oneness of that which is life, as it is formless and therefore endless, so whatever appears to be more than one is an illusion.

That is why there is no answer to where the world comes from, or where you as a person comes from. You are not in a world where there seems to be more than one. It is not possible since there is no more than that which is one.

What you think you see and feel in the world is not there, neither the person you appear to be. Your appearance as someone definitive is to be compared to a world where there is nothing but one machine, which has been programmed with artificial intelligence in a way so that specific signals are experienced 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 definitive in a world with like-minded beings.

In other words, you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, that will last as long as you believe the signals the senses seem to pick up.

As a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, there is no answer to who you are in such a world. There is, however, an answer to why you believe to be someone there. You want to be and have more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
You may long for oneness and try to implement it in a world where there seems to be more than one. But such a world is a world of separation – otherwise there would not seems to be more than one – so there is no room for oneness.

The experience of such a world is only possible due to oneness, but as it formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one, so an experience of a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion. And as formlessness has no time and space, it is one perpetual present, hence the experience ends the very same moment it begins. The world that you believe to be real is, therefore, nothing but after images of this fantasy.

Trying to implement oneness in a world of separation, you deny your own choice of experiencing to be someone definitive in such a world.

Yet while believing to be someone in a fantasy world, it is best to give it your best shot within the framework of this world. Because if not you are denouncing that which makes it possible to have this fantasy, namely the formlessness of that which is life.

What seems to be experienced in the world, is an illusion made possible to appear as if it is real due to that which is real.

In other words, forgetting all about the formlessness of oneness and instead imagine to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one confirms the formlessness of oneness, as formlessness is endless so only due to that is it possible to have such a fantasy.

Oneness is the cause of experiencing a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet the apparent effect of it is not real. It is make-believe.

Whether what is happening on a computer screen is judged to be good or bad, it is only possible to experience it due to the power of electricity. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Though a world the formlessness of oneness is what empowers the fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one it is not in this world. In other words, it is lifeless, so as long as you believe to be in this fantasy it seems to hide the oneness of life. Grasping this, you know that all your different experiences, although unreal, are symbols of that which is real.

The more everything experienced is perceived as symbols of oneness, the more their apparent differences do not make a difference, so the less there is a basis for your belief in separation. There is, however, one big obstacle for undoing this belief. You consider the oneness to be boring. That is also the main reason, you wanted to escape it and chose to believe in a world where it appears that the excitement of being and having more than one beats the peace of oneness.

That which is one is without time and space, so it lasts no time and take up no space. Yet, as it is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that. It is one perpetual present.

As that which is one is endless, there is no more than that which is one. This is why it is nothing but peace, but also why there is no excitement to find since it takes more than one to find something.

A world where there seems to be more than one, however, is based on the idea, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. And no doubt you will seem to find a lot that excites you. But the price is fear because you will always be afraid of losing what you have since nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one lasts.

Besides, there is no more than that which is one, so no matter how much more you appear to be and have it is not real. Somehow you sense something is wrong, but because you want to hold onto the idea and being and having more is possible you let it slide. Just like within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, children like to believe the exciting story of Santa Claus bringing them presents because they are among the good ones, even though they cannot help doubting the whole story.

"Knowing

Yet knowing that Santa Claus is not real, it is quite fun playing along with this fantasy as if it is real. Just like it is fun playing along with the fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one. There is nothing to risk when you know it is not real, which you know the more all the experiences of lifelessness in a world where there seems to be more than one are perceived to be symbols of that which makes them possible, namely life.

How can you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one?
As there is no more than that which is one, there is no answer to that question, so the next articles about virtual reality (Nobody in a game is real – only the player is) and IoT* (A person is to be compared to a machine following preprogrammed movements) are not literal answers to this question. They are more like fairy tales composed to explain the unexplainable.
