A person is to be compared to a MP3 file

A MP3 is a compressed compressed version of lossless music. A world, where there seems to be more than one, can be compared to a compressed version of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A world, where there seems to be more than one, can be compared to a compressed version of that which is one. Although that which is one has no size, the compressed version of it is defined by size, so that it is possible to imagine seeing more than one. As it takes much focus to imagine this, the belief in a world compressed into a capsule of time and space can be undone by not focusing, since that makes it impossible to imagine that there is more than one.* The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1:
MP3 is a compressed version of uncompressed music, which is considered to be lossless. Some think, that by hitting a button, they can reverse a compressed version of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Beatles, for example, back to its lossless state. But all they get is a new file ending with a word like FLAC instead of MP3.

Although the new file may be bigger than the old one, nothing has changed in regards to the quality of the music. In other words, when music is compressed into MP3 it has forever lost something, and there is no way of getting back what is lost, no matter how much bigger you make the MP3 file.

A person can be compared to a MP3 music file. No matter what you do, the data lost in the conversion to MP3 can never be regained, so if you want wholeness, it is not to be found in a world defined by time and space.

In fact it is not to be found anywhere, because wholeness is that which is one and it takes more than one to find something. Fortunately that which is whole needs not to be found, because there is nothing else than the oneness, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Any person in a world encapsulated by time and space can be compared to a compressed version of the formlessness of that which is one, and just like MP3 music has forever lost something, so has someone who seems to live in a capsule of time and space.

No matter how much more is added or subtracted from someone encapsulated by time and space it will never be formless. The same applies to any transformational process a person is engaged in. All you get is a new appearance, that may make you appear to be larger or higher. But that which is you is no different from the formlessness that which is one, and formlessness has no size.

In reality, it is not possible to experience size, as to experience something requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. It is, however, possible to imagine, that there is more than one and that you are or can become more that which is one. And it is this imagination, that appears to hide the formlessness of that which is one.

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.

PART 2:
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 being 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 seem 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 observes 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 appear 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 stop moving and observing where you appear to be, time and space cease 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, as defocusing lift the apparent border between the observer and the observed.* This is 100 per cent 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.
