All experiences are equally unreal

The experience of seeing this pic is as all other experiences – including so-called spiritual ones – fabricated in the brain. Nothing real is fabricated, but that which is real can be used to imagine a fabricated reality. Though that which is real is not in the simulation, the reason the simulation seems to be there is that which is real. Therefore everything in the simulated world of duality can be seen as symbols of that which is real.

Seeing this image is like other experiences – including those supposed to be spiritual or come from the heart – fabricated in the brain. It simulates a tangible world where there seems to be more than one, on top of the formlessness of that which is one. The formlessness of that which is one is not in the simulation of a tangible world that is no more tangible than this image. But as that which is one is formless, it is endless, so the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion. You could say the illusion symbolises that which is real because you could not imagine a world where there seems to be more than one without it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Experiences of god and other so-called spiritual concepts are fabrications manufactured by the brain in which they, just like mundane experiences, can be measured physically. The idea of you being someone definitive in a body governed by a mind or a soul is also fabricated by the brain, which is nothing more than a labyrinth of fat and synapses, which passes electrical signals from cell to cell.

The confident appearance of knowing what is right covers a feeling of being wrong. Instead of facing this, it seems easier to suppress it by blaming others for being wrong.

In other words, whether you have ordinary or so-called spiritual experiences, or experience to come from the heart, to be governed by chakras and whatnot, all your experiences are fabricated by electrical impulses in the brain (read more about that here).

The afterimage
All that you think and do has already been set in progress millions of years ago. Everything could be predicted then because, in non-linear time, the world’s birth and death appear simultaneously. In other words, the world is no more. Thus, the whole story of the universe starts and ends at the same moment.

»When you dig into molecules, and the states of ion channels, enzymes, transcription programs, cells, synapses, and whole networks of neurons, you come to realise that there is no one place in the brain where memories are stored,« says Kukushkin. This is because of a property called plasticity, the feature of neurons that memorize. The memory is the system itself. From an article in Wired.

You are hanging onto some remaining data or fragments compared to an afterimage of the universe or memories of it. Actually, what you appear to be is nothing but honeycombed memories. To make sense of them, you try to fill the gaps with fragments of love, god and other lofty ideas.

Hanging onto after images is like hanging onto the fragments of a dream or of a beloved, who is dead, but with whom you still have an internal dialogue. You can compared it to having an app, that has collected everything your beloved ever has written on social media, so that you still can have the experience of chatting with your beloved, though he/she is dead.

And it seems very real, because the dead one will answer you in the way you are accustomed to and use info from for example Wikipedia, so the chat will not seem dated. Maybe the app also is able to collect all the dead ones telephone conversations and put fragments of it together in such a way, that it seems as if you are having a real conversation with a live person – though that person has no mouth and is nothing but data collected from the cloud.

The dead one may even be reconstructed as a robot implemented with artificial intelligence and texture-mapped skin constructed to appear as on the best looking pictures from the past, so that you can relive your best memories of being together. The robot receives ´thoughts´ stored in the cloud, so it can react like you expect – or maybe surprise you with kinky sex based on pornographic videos from the internet.

Once in a while, when it fails to act like in your memories, you may freak out and suspect something is wrong. But since you appear to feel something, you conclude it must be real and not just a simulation layered on top of reality, that you forget as long as you want to believe the simulation will give you something better than reality.

What seems to be reality is an imagination
A single part of the brain processes perceived reality in the present moment and through memories plus imagined states, symbols and metaphors. Thus, to the brain, there is no difference between what is perceived as real and what is considered imaginary, metaphors, spiritual and whatnot.

It is not that this info is stored anywhere in the brain, as you can read in the article Wired referred above. Hence the brain is this info, and as the world is in the eye of the beholder, so is the world and the person you appear to be there.

In other words, everything experienced is make-believe, and that is why you cannot know reality, find the truth or realise that which is you. But by pretending to be someone definitive ´there´, you can discover what you are not. Thus, recognising that, you know, that you do not know what and where you are, which is the invitation the enlightenment of that which is one* has been waiting for.

Just like all appearances in a dream are illusions symbolising the world the dreamer lives in, everything in the world are illusions symbolising that which is real, namely that which is you.

Until then, enjoy pretending to be someone definitive that seems to have spiritual experiences of inner peace or feel excitement by watching a football match. It does not matter what person you appear to be when you know it is not you, but a symbol of that which is you.

You cannot do anything wrong when perceiving everything as a symbol of oneness because doing something wrong is also a symbol of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Whatever you do is fine
That your appearance does not matter is what makes seeing everything in the world as a symbol of that which is you so beautiful. No matter what you do, think, or feel, it is not real but a symbol of that. You do not have to believe in anything specific, but if you like to believe in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings or something else, it is not a problem because no matter what you do, it is a symbol of that which is you.

If you follow Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, you do not have to like it all. What you do not like is also a symbol of that which is you.

There are no steps or philosophies that you must follow to come back to that which you as a person in the world symbolises, namely that which is you. Therefore, whatever you seem to think, feel or do as a person in a world where there seems to be more than one is fine because everything is a symbol of that which is you, and that is no different from that which is one.

This image would not appear to consist of a forest and whatever else you imagine to be there, if not for memories. The belief that someone sees this is also due to them. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Although the suggestions for new music coming from, for example, Spotify or Apple Music, seems to suit your taste of music, they are not made by you, neither by someone who knows you. Likewise, the thoughts coming to you suggesting this and that are not made by you, neither by someone who knows you.

All problems are gone, when you do not know what and where you are, as that means there is nobody to use thoughts to construct concepts of good and bad. Hence there is nothing to worry about.

There is no you. Just like what you appear to be to the bots from Spotify and Apple Music is made up of algorithms, what you believe to be in a world defined by time and space is made up of memories. That includes where ever you appear to be and the one appearing to believe this. Without memories, there does not appear to be something, where there is nothing but the formlessness of that which is one.

And as formlessness is endless, a world defined by time and space cannot be experienced without it. Hence the all the memories compiling the fantasy of being someone definitive in a world limited by time and space confirm the formlessness of that which is one – especially when choosing to see everything memorised as symbols of that which cannot be memorised since it is that which is one, and it takes more than one to remember anything.

The universe is dying. It is only a matter of time. And when it is all over, there is no more time. Hence there never was a world defined by time and space – just one perpetual present.

»After a short, productive explosion of early activity, the universe has begun its long mope towards oblivion. To the extent that anything was ever important, it won’t be. Time, space, energy, matter – all gone … That’s right: Everything you know and love, the entire universe of possible things, will be gone.« from the article The End of the Universe published in Wired.

  • The quote box is inspired by an episode of Black Mirror called Be Right Back, and the concept of ´hanging onto some remaining data or fragments´ is inspired by the movie Source Code. The scientific info about the brain Alexius has found here and there, so all in all, the article is the usual mismatch the brain likes to combine to make an illusion that seems entertaining. However, the experience of this specific illusion can be beneficial in seeing that all experiences, whether they appear to be mundane, direct, spiritual, and whatnot, are make-believe.
  • Regarding where thoughts come from, see also the article Thoughts do not come from you but The Cloud, which, just like this article, is part of hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life.
