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.

Perceived from a world of duality, non-duality is totally flat because it is formless and therefore without any dimensions. Since it for the same reason has no beginning and end, there is no more than non-duality. Consequently, everything that has a size is an illusion.

Eyes do not see. It is the brain, that fabricate the images, you seem to see. Actually, 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.

Appearing to be a person in a world of duality, you may believe that a world defined by time and space is real. Still, it is just as illusionary as the above flat photo by Erin O’Keefe, which 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 impossible to fabricate something 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 #2.3 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 what is perceived to be an almighty god, which 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. Actually, 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.

Wavelengths of light can be compared to binary data, that are accumulating the simulation, of the webpage, that you consider to see on your screen right now. Wavelengths have no form, color or depth of field, as it seems in this pic simulating a mixture of wavelengths and binary data.

Wavelengths have no form, colour or depth of field, as it seems in this image simulating a mixture of wavelengths and binary data. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Not just ultimately speaking but also physically, you do not see colours or forms, but the wavelength of light hitting the retina of the eye. Colour and shape are assigned by the brain to the wavelengths of light, so they seem to produce coherent images of the world in the way you have conditioned yourself to perceive it – regardless that all wavelengths of light actually are colourless as well as formless, and that the motion of the image, the brain use time to process, has been extrapolated so that the time delay in processing does not interfere with the thoughts or actions, you perceive to happen now.

Scientifically speaking, everything seen as opaque and substantial consists of empty space manipulated by the brain into an experience as something tangible. In other words, the world that you seem to feel and see is make-believe.

In an augmented reality created via special glasses, your digitally altered face can be seen like that by others also make those special glasses.

In augmented reality, that can appear via special glasses, for example, your face can digitally be altered like in this image and seen in the same way by others wearing similar glasses. This image is grabbed from an article about augmented reality.

Let us say you have invited a friend for dinner tomorrow and plan to serve ravioli with pesto sauce. The exact moment you imagine this, the same moment it is done. The more concrete and material image of it that arrives tomorrow in a slightly different version is an afterimage of the more transparent version you had in your mind.

Not all that you imagine arrives as an afterimage. The engine of the world is to be compared to a beta version of an app, so not everything works as it is supposed to.

Time and space in the world of a game like Super Mario is construction, and everything that can possibly happen there is pre-programmed. Events may seem to progress in time, but they are all stored together on a tiny spot without any time and space in between them. In other words, small and big is an illusion, so is past and future. The vastness of the world is simply an illusion made by the play of light on the screen.

Maybe without knowing it, the makers of games like that are replicating how the world – included bonus ones like astral worlds – is fabricated, namely in the exact same way as a video game.

The new technology called AR – augmented reality – can also be used to demonstrate this. You put on some glasses that changes what you see in front of you according to how they are programmed so that you appear to participate in a virtual world fabricated on top of – and from elements of – the physical world.

Everything in the virtual world appears to be as real as in the physical world – just like chatting on social media feels like talking in the physical world, although social media is virtual.

»We have absorbed the internet into our nervous systems, and it has made us different,« says Canadian director David Cronenberg, who is very fascinated by technology, in the article David Cronenberg on Predicting the Future and What a Dog’s Reality Is Like.

AR glasses can also be programmed to give you a unique appearance, so that other persons with the same kinds of glasses will see you with the programmed appearance of your choice.

The world. that you think you see, can be compared to what you see wearing glasses, that are programmed to make a world where there seems to be more than one appear on top of that which is one.

It seems that only one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one grasps, that what is typically perceived to be real is just an artificial reality layered on top of that which is real. It is like everybody is wearing glasses programmed to see a world where there seems to be more than one, although there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one since formlessness is endless.

¡¡¡ Reality is right in front of you. All you have to do is take off the glasses that appear to make a world that can be seen on top of that which cannot be seen, namely that which is one !!!
