Nothing that can be seen is real

Photo of forced perspective by Erin O’Keefe

This photo by Erin O’Keefe has a forced perspective, where the feeling of space and the accepted reality of it does not necessarily align.

As non-duality is formless it has no dimensions, so perceived from a world of duality, non-duality is flat – and as what is formless is endless there is no more than non-duality. Consequently everything dimensional is an illusion.

Eyes do not see. It is the brain, that fabricate the images, you seem to see. In fact the brain can produce perfect images of what appears to be a realistic world out there, even with eyes closed. In other words, you are deceived by the brain – but only because you want to.

As a person in a world of duality, you may believe that a world defined by time and space is real, but it is just as illusionary as the above flat photo by Erin O’Keefe, that has been fabricated to fool you into experiencing it as dimensional.

»In architecture I love the idea of forced perspective. You can use space to manipulate people’s impressions of the space. The feeling of the space and the reality of the space doesn’t necessarily align.« Erin O’Keefe in the article ´Mind-Bending Dioramas That Distort How You See Reality´ from Wired and from where the above picture is taken.

As it is not possible to fabricate something that is formless, the formlessness of non-duality is not an illusion – and as that which is formless cannot be seen, everything that can be seen is not real. What is not real though symbolises that which is real, namely the formlessness of non-duality.

In hack #2.4 Life is flat you can read about the flatness of non-duality, and how a world of duality is a simulated reality layered on top of non-duality. The layer is fabricated by imagining, that it is possible to be outside of non-duality, and in such separated state use fragments of it added together, so that they appear to form a dimensional world, where there seems to be more than one moving around in space and time.

The more fragments there are added, the more the world of duality mistakenly appears to be the one and only reality. This includes the appearance of god and other so-called spiritual beings. The first separation from non-duality is actually done by god – also called the ego – that immediately multiplies the fragmented into a simulated layer of reality called the universe.

This is not meant to say, it is bad to believe in god. You cannot appear in a world of duality without believing in something, and whether it is god, satan, love or another concept, you believe in is all the same. In fact whatever you totally devote yourself to will dissolve any layer of illusion.

This article is actually a layer on top of code of HTML etc, that has no pics – only words, that are sent to your browser commanding it to fabricate an appearance of this article. But that code is also a layer. It sits on top of the basic computer code. Nothing, that seems to appear via the computer, is real.

This article is actually a layer on top of computer code, that you can see a part of in this screen dump of the code of the article. There are no photos to see in it – only words, which are sent to your browser commanding it to fabricate an appearance of an article illustrated by photos. This code, however, is also a layer, that sits on top of the basic code of your electronic media. In other words, everything, that seems to appear on the screen of an electronic media is a simulation– just like everything in a world of duality is a simulation.

Within the context of duality, this article, you seem to read on an electronic media, is a layer that an app has fabricated from the programming code underneath the article, which most humans would not be able to perceive as this article.

The whole internet, that you may experience as an exciting world, is a layer on top of programming languages like HTML and JAVA. If not transformed by your web browser, you would not be able to perceive the layer, that looks like this article.

This digital photo does not have the look, that you expect a digital raw converter to produce. You also expect the real world to be in colours. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A digital photo is layered on top of raw digital info, that no human would perceive as a photo. The image that seems to be there is a layer constructed by a raw data converter into – in the case of the internet – a JPEG or PNG image.

To make long short: What you seem to see in a world of duality is always a layered illusion on top of another layer of illusion. It is, however, a misunderstanding to peel off layers to get to that which is not an illusion. Dealing with layers – whether you experience them to be made by thoughts, feelings and whatnot –confirms them to be real, though only that which cannot be experienced is real.
