All fragments are symbols of that which is cannot be fragmented [in the process of being updated]

PART 1:
Ahead of the release of a new music album, one of its tracks used to be distributed as a single. This fragment of the album was seen as a symbol of the whole. Nowadays, streaming music services are about to change this. You do not have to buy a whole album but can get the tracks from it that you like add them together with fragments from other albums to create your own playlist.

The slow death of an album, as an experience of wholeness, is meant to illustrate, that most exclude what they do not like from their awareness, so they can manifest themselves as a particular individual separated from the whole which is in charge of itself. Very few want to be part of the whole because that requires them to include everything as it is, wherefore they are not manifested as unique, nor as someone in charge.

The desire to separate and exclude to become unique comes as no surprise since it is the foundation for the belief in being someone definitive. It is believed to be manifested through the achievement of characteristic things that belong to one individual only and by expressing personalised opinions about something that can enhance separation.

Before we go on, please note that the above does not that mean owning a house, for example, needs to be avoided. Everything depends on the purpose. And if that, in the context of hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life, is to see the experience of this ownership as a symbol of oneness, the result is not a manifestation of separation. Nor of a union. A symbol is a simulation, and therefore not real, so it does not manifest anything. Just like, within the context of the world, the word milk, which symbolise the real thing, cannot manifest it. Hence you do not fool yourself to experience something that is not there when you perceive the word milk to be a symbol.

Likewise, you are not deluded into believing you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one if the experience of that is perceived to be a symbol of that which makes it possible to experience it, namely that which is one as it is formless and therefore endless. Hence, there is nothing else to trigger the experience of something that is not there. However, since you do not know oneness and never will, as being aware of something requires more than one, it may seem more befitting to simply perceive your experience of being someone as a symbol of that which is real.

When the feelings are acknowledged and therefore can be perceived as symbols of that which makes it possible to experience something impossible, they do not seem to have an effect that establishes you as angry, for example. As that means you are not someone definitive, nobody seems to hide there never was or will be anything but that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In other words, seeing all experiences as symbols of that which is real, they are exposed to be make-believe. Hereafter there does not appear to be something to hide there never was or will be anything but that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. This does not mean you will realise oneness. That is not possible because it takes more than one to be aware of something. Fortunately, it also takes more than one to be someone, so what you believed in being is no more, wherefore there is nobody to realise that oneness is one perpetual present.

For the same reason, there is nothing to say about one perpetual present. But there is much to say about undoing the belief in being in a world where everything has a beginning and end and therefore seems to be separated from each other. So we return to that.

The more you take something out context and use it for personal purposes disconnected from the whole, the more you feel guilty and fear you will lose what you have grabbed at the expense of the whole. To hide the fear, you may take out even more of its content. Maybe you try to suppress negative thoughts through meditation, so you for a while, feel uplifted and alive from a theoretical state of being only positive. See Positive thinking is bullshit.

The conclusion of this is not that you would be better off looking for wholeness in the world. Oneness is not to be found in a world where everything is separated by time and space. Nevertheless, separation is a confirmation of the inseparable, namely oneness. It would not be possible to experience the illusion of separation without oneness, because there is no more than that since it is formless and therefore endless. In other words, as reality is oneness, the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one is not possible without that which is one. That is why everything experienced to be separated by something is a symbol of oneness.

If you, therefore, do not experience part 1 of this article to have a coherent finale, and that makes you irritable, you perceive your reaction as a symbol of oneness. Hence the missing conclusion does not seem to make a difference. Going on, seeing your response to something as a symbol of oneness, a world where there seems to be more than one, eventually, falls apart. Thus the belief in separation is undone.

In the context of the music story, you can say, that if you see everything in the world as different tracks symbolising a whole album, although not yet disclosed, you have a connection with the wholeness of that album through the symbols of it. Hence you, eventually, stop perceiving the individual tracks as separated from each other wherefore there do not appear to any gaps in the whole album called one perpetual present.

The evolution of IoT (Internet of things) via smartphones and tablets makes it easier and easier to connect people and their needs, so you share cars and rent out your home as a holiday home, while you rent somebody else´s for your vacation.

INTERLUDE
The above should not be seen as a crusade against streaming music. No matter in what way you listen to music or do other things in the world, it only seems possible due to the oneness of life, so whether you make your own stream or not and make your own playlist or not, it is a symbol of oneness. At times

A world where there seems to be more than one is about individuality. Thus it would be to go against its very nature if you do not do go for that. This also applies if you want to return to oneness, which is not about being together as that requires more than one.

Streaming music and other doings of Generation Y (born between 1980 and 2000) suits the personality of Alexius well. It does not appear to be about having to own things, but about having free access to them – like for example you have to his non-teachings, and he has to the source delivering the content.

You can read more in an article from Wired about how the digital generation expects integrated service offerings in the way IoT (Internet of things) works and are happy to trade personal data for access to the sharing economy.

What you can access from the smartphone is not in the phone. Nothing in the smartphone is real. Everything is symbols.

PART 2:
The reason capitalism has been easy to establish is straightforward. So far, it has been essential for a person to own something, preferably a lot and more than others. The same applies to the communistic way of living, although it is about owning things together – at least officially speaking.

This is a generalisation. There are, of course, exceptions, but not that many. Otherwise, society would not have been built on owning as much as possible for as little as possible at the expense of others. Read more about that here.

The older generation thinks that to buy and own is to commit, whether it is materialistic things or so-called spiritual states of mind. The most significant exception from this consumerism is found in generation Y (born 1980 – 2000), who generally speaking do not care to own but to have access – primarily via a smartphone.

Things and services you can access via a smartphone are not in it – just like a world where there seems to be more than one is not in the experiences we access of it via the brain. Within the context of the experiences of such a world, somebody has made the smartphone we use. But nobody knows who has made the humans that access experiences from their brain of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. The reason is simple. Humans have never been made. Reality is that which is one, and it takes more than one to create something.

The experience of being someone is, therefore, an illusion. No worries. There is no illusion without reality. So if you perceive your experiences as symbols of that which is one, you can have fun appearing to be someone with access to more than one, provided you do not try to own what you access.

The smartphone is a symbol of being connected and have access to everthing.

The smartphone is a symbol of being connected and having access to everything.

APPENDIX:
You have to own a smartphone or something similar to have access to the sharing economy and, for example, IoT. The smartphone is a symbol of having access, and that is a symbol of oneness because, without that, you could not have access to the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one.

Generation Y does not even care to own their thoughts, feelings and experiences. They share them all over the internet, and happily give away their private details in exchange for having access to the sharing economy, streaming music, movies and so on. If not being private at all seems natural to you, there is not someone to stop the enlightenment of that which is one.

It can in some ways be compared to the transporter beam in Star Trek, where a person is dematerialised and converted into energy, that is beamed to a target, where the person again is materialised. The enlightenment of that which is one, however, only dematerialise. Nothing is beamed to a new target and reconverted into matter. Thus there does not seem to be something to hide there never was or will be anything but the formlessness of oneness.

You can read more about the enlightenment of that which is one in HACK #6 Inner senses, enlightenment and glimpses of it.
