+ You cannot realise that which is you, because it is no different from that which is one

While having a dream, where you believe to be, this belief hides what you are you really are, namely in your bed. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»The thing’s hollow – it goes on forever – and – oh my God! – it’s full of stars!« After the astronaut Bowman in the movie ´2001: A Space Odyssey´ shuts down HAL, that until then had been in control, there is an explosion of light.

If you are a long time reader of Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings, you probably have grasped, there is no more than the formlessness of oneness, wherefore it contains everything, even though it takes up no space since it is non-dimensional and therefore as flat as can be. See also hack #2.6 Size does not matter.

If you momentarily have bypassed the brains rendering of you as someone substantial in a tangible world – like Bowman did in the movie ´2001: A Space Odyssey´ when he shut down HAL – you may have vague memories of a powerful light show turning into one colourless light brighter than anything else sucking out every bit of info that attest to you being someone substantial and leaving it at the edge of a black hole, so that the nothingness of you gracefully and endlessly falls into that which is one.*

This is not to say that you have seen or realised oneness. First of all, the awareness that experience what you appear to be was swift off. Secondly, that which is one is formless, so it cannot be seen. Thirdly, in order for you to see or realise something it must be judged to be separated from you, and there is no separation in oneness.

In a world where there seems to be more than one a sound bounces from one to another and thus seems to make an expression. But in that which is one nothing is expressed, as that requires more than one.

In a dream anything can happen and though it may appear as if you for example are about to drown, this is not so, because you are in you bed. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

To make long short, as it takes more than one to see or realise something, that which is one can never be seen or realised by someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Believing there is such a world is comparable to believing there is more than one in a dream, which you seem to have in that a world. There is nobody. Not even you are there. You are in your bed. 

As long as you believe you to be spiritual, pure consciousness or whatnot, you feel trapped in a world where there appears to be more than one, because believing to be something involves more than one.

But unlike in a world where there seems to be more than one, where there is someone dreaming a dream, nobody in that which is one is having a dream of a world where there seems to be more than one, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

Regardless of what you believe to be and see in a dream, you will wake up – and so what you believed to be and see is all gone. It was never there.

This explanation in this article and all the others in Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings should therefore not be taken literal but as metaphors explaining what has no explanation, because it is not possible to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.
