What requires more than one is not that which is one

It takes two to be together, and as you think you are separated from that which is one, it takes two to return to that which is one. Togetherness can also be between two parts of your personality. It is basically the same as it is all make-believe. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It takes more than one to be together in a world where there seems to be more than one, and because you think that you are separated from that which is one, it also takes more than one to return to oneness. But as being more than one actually is an imagination happening between parts of yourself, it is more correct to say that being alone together* is how you return to that which is one.

PART 1:
That which is one cannot be observed because it takes more than one to observe something. What can be observed is a world where there seems to be more than one. Such a world, however, is not real, since that which is one is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than oneness. In other words, a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion.

The ego, therefore, rubs its hands every time you try to get rid of it, as by doing so you enhance the belief, that there is more than that which is one. It knows you will never get rid of it because you cannot get rid of something that is not there. Hence its ´life´ seems to be forever preserved when you are fighting it.

According to an article recently published in the journal Nature Communications a team split a single photon in half and transmitted it to two separate labs. Upon analysis, they found that the particle not only exists until its observed but that it never showed up in both labs at the same time. The particle you are not looking at ceases to exist.

Those who advise others to observe thoughts and feelings in order to be detached from them, worship the ego, because to observe or be detached from something makes an illusion appear to be real. The world only seems to be there, because you choose to believe the separation created by contrasts like right and wrong is real.

Contrasts is needed for something to appear as if it exists in the world.

Contrasts is needed for something to appear as if it exists. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If nobody is watching a movie, the world in it does not appear to exist.

Just like the world in a movie is an illusion created by the contrasts, that light seems to produce on the screen, a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be experienced without contrasts. Without them, there would not seem to be more than one. Neither would this article appear to be there if the black letters were written on black.

There must be a contrast between the letters and the background for them to be seen. There must be evil in the world for you to experience good. There must be hate so that you can feel love. You cannot have a god without a devil and so on.

In a world where there seems to be more than one you cannot have oneness, because then there would not seem to be more than one.

But contrast is an illusion. There is nothing outside of that which is one because it is formless and therefore endless, so it has no contrast. In other words, what has no contrast is that which is real – and reality cannot be seen, seeing something requires contrast.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, past and future are contrasting each other. There is nothing to contrast now, and so there is no now to experience in such a world. Those who claim, that there is, are serving the ego, who knows, that all searching is of a world where there seems to be more than one.

It requires more than one to be a father or to be something at all – also to search for something. And as reality is the formlessness of that which is one and as formlessness is endless, what appears to be more than one is an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It requires more than one to search for something, and the ego loves whatever takes more than one because that makes a world where there seems to be more than one appear as if it is real – and hence the ego as well.

As long as you seem to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot get rid of the ego. Fortunately, you do not need to get rid of it. Neither the ego, such a world or the one experiencing this is real, so there is nothing to get rid of.

How can you know what love feels like, if everybody love you?

Yet you must acknowledge all the contrasts in a world where there seems to be more than one – war and peace, love and hate and so on – while you appear to be someone there. Otherwise, there is no world to experience, and you need to experience it, as it takes more than one to undo the experience of it.

In that which is one it is always the same day. The same applies to a world where there seems to be more than one, but every morning you imagine it from a new angle, and so it seems to have changed. In other words, nothing is going on in a world where there seems to be more than one. It is going on in you.

It is not possible to appear as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one and as formlessness is endless, there is no more than that which is one. Yet it is possible to pretend to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, which is fun until you believe it is real.** Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is not possible to leave the formlessness of that which is one since what is formless has no beginning or end, which means there is no more than that which is one. Yet it seems possible to imagine that there is more than one and as such leaving it in favour of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

You need to be with others in order to return to that which is one. But you also need not to perceive the apparent difference between them and you to make a difference, as that means you can imagine returning to that which is one just like you imagined to leave it, namely alone together.*

One way of doing this is to perceive all appearances in the world as symbols of that which is one.

Hence you must be more than one if you want to return to that which is one, which is not possible physically speaking. But imagining to be alone together*, which is by the way what you have always been in a world where there seems to be more than one, is possible – and that is how you return to that which you never left but in your imagination of being more than one.

Dimension is an illusion.

PART 2:
Seen
from a world defined by time and space life is flat as can be. This should not be a surprise, because that which is life is one and as it requires more than one to be dimensional, what else can it be than flat.

To perceive that which is life as dimensional, it has to be divided into more than one, so that one flat part can observe another flat part, that seems to move when the observing part moves. In other words, by observing the flatness of life from different angles, you imagine being someone in a world defined by time and space.

On the webpage almost calm you can see how a painting, that is still and flat seems to move and becomes dimensional, when you as observer outside of the flat image move on top of it via a mouse, tracking pad or fingers in case of a smartphone. The webpage is done by the artist Artist Rafaël Rozendaal, who in a series of new images uses an old-school technology best known for its use in funky, ridged baseball cards, where it looked like the slugger was swinging a bat, when you turned the card slightly to and fro – as is explained in the Wired article ´Vivid Paintings That Shape-Shift as You Walk by Them´.

What needs to be imagined though is not real. But that is the beauty of it. One can imagine a world defined by time and space and have fun pretending to be someone there, while nothing actually has changed, because since that which is one is formless it is endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

The Matrix.

A shot from the movie ´The Matrix´.

A world defined by time and space can be compared to ´the matrix´ in the movie by the same name, where reality, as it is perceived by most humans, is actually a simulated reality called ´the matrix´, which is a layer on top of the real world. But unlike in the movie the layer of a 3D world with appearances moving in time it is not created by machines, who trick you into seeing a world, that is not there.

In an attempt to be more than that which is one, you have tricked yourself into seeing something that is not there, namely a dimensional world, instead of seeing there is no more than that which is one, which is seen by seeing nothing, because that which is real cannot be seen, since it is that which is one and it takes more than one to see something.

Humans are afraid machines will take over the world, but they already have. A human is nothing but a machine.

A human is to be compared to a machine with artificial intelligence*. There is no self or soul inside it. It is nothing but mechanics. What it seems to think, feel and decide does not come from a self but from the instructions it gets from the cloud.

In the world defined by time and space you are to be compared to a machine that functions via the info it gets from IoT (The internet of things*), where everything included the appearance of a personality and soul is fabricated in the cloud, which makes all your thoughts, feelings and decisions based on preprogrammed sensors installed in you, although you like to think it is your own doing. Unlike in the movie ´The Matrix´, what is underneath the layer of the violent and ugly world called ´the matrix´ is not a world of machines but the beauty of that which is one.

Someone in the matrix has forgotten, they are not there.

Someone in the matrix has forgotten, that they are not there.

But if you forget that a world defined by time and space is nothing but a simulated reality, appearing to be there does not seem funky anymore but very serious. Hence it becomes important to preserve the imagination of being someone with a coherent self – even when the angles of observing that which is one are changed, which they constantly in order to make it appear as if it is a dimensional world. See also the article There is only one thing, that needs correction.

As everything has a beginning and an end in a dimensional world to survive as someone definitive, you to trick itself into believing you have a soul, that will reincarnate as someone new, when angles of observing that which is one are changed and what you appear to be cannot function anymore. So far though no one has been able to make this trick work.

The reason for this is very simple. There is no more than one life. It never ends though. What has an end is not life but afterlife. In other words, since life is formless and therefore endless, there is nothing else than that, so believing you are not someone definitive is a mistake.

Fortunately, a mistake can be corrected. See hack #8.5 To appear in the world is a mistake, that can be corrected. It only takes one to undo what is not one. That being said, in a world where there seems to be more than one oneness appears separated in more than, so to become one you include two or more appearances, that seems different from you as if their difference does not make a difference. See hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss. or hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one.

ai-imageHumans are afraid that machines with artificial intelligence will end their world, as Stephen Hawking and Elton Musk from Tesla predicts – and for sure they will end the world as humans know it, because what they seem to know is nothing but their own construction of thoughts, that they have tricked themselves to believe is the world.

The same though will be true for a new world fabricated by machines with artificial intelligence. It will be a fabricated reality on top of the fabricated reality, humans have made on top of the fabricated reality, that so-called gods did on top of that which is real. There may be layers in between those, but they are all simulated worlds on top of that which is real, namely the formlessness of oneness.


*) Alone together can be compared to having a dream in the sense that everything that appears to happen in it – no matter how and where it is experienced to be – is actually happening in you. And though there seem to be many different appearances, they are not really there. There is nobody but you. You are alone having a dream about a world where there seems to be more than one. This you can read more about this in the articles Alone together you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is oneWho is alone together? and The door to the enlightenment of that which is one is alone together or hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one.

**) In hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation. you can read about how pretending to be what you are not, undoes the belief in being someone definitive.
