To NOT observe is the end of a person

Maybe you get excited by imagining a woman. The more you move around this imagination, the more the woman starts to take form. The woman in this image may even pop out it with a full body or just the part of her you focus on, if you keep on observing her – and the boy may disappear. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A world defined by time and space is an abstraction of oneness, which is invisible since it is formless and therefore without size. But as formlessness is endless it is everything. Yet it lasts no time, as it is timeless, which seems pretty boring from the perspective of a world defined by time and space.

So how come we appear to be in a world defined by time and space, when there is no more than the eternal now of oneness. The answer is observation. If you imagine to be separated from the formlessness of oneness and observe it from different angles it appears to have dimensions because of the changing angles. And because your movements between the angles seems to take time, it also appears as if oneness is a world of linear time.

This observation is what is repeated again and again in a world defined by time and space. The more someone observe the appearances of the world by moving around them, the more the observer experience a dimensional world.

The New Age idea about observing the world in order to be detached from it does the exact opposite, namely attach you to it.

Observation is the foundation of a world defined by time and space. This is what keeps it spinning, and you appearing to be in an open prison. Not in the sense that the world has the power to imprison you. It is your movements as an observer, that seems to imprison you in a world encapsulated by time and space.

The focus on something imagined is how the whole a world defined by time and space seems to appear. But this appearance will disappear, when not keeping a distance to it as an observer.

So when what you appear to be stops moving and observing where you appear to be, time and space ceases to exist. Hence there is not something to hide, there is no difference between that which is you and the formlessness of that which is one.

To stop moving as someone definitive is to not focus, because defocusing lift the apparent border between the observer and the observed.* This is 100% intimacy.** Hence intimacy is one way to not hide the formlessness of that which is one. In other words, it is the end of appearing as someone definitive with a will of its own. That is why most persons fight intimacy by observing the world and its appearances to keep everything at a distance and themselves as someone defined.


*) See for example the article Defocus is the end of you as someone definitive and A reintroduction to the inner senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it. Though defocus is in not in the list of duality hacks, it is a very powerful duality hack, and so easy to implement.
