Our eyes cannot see anything at all. The tangible world we believe to see is a construction of thoughts the brain fabricate based on the reflections of light that passes through our eyes. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Even though the digital photos in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings seem to be different images with each their own story, they are the same in the sense that they all consist of the same zeros and ones. And it is not before an app translates different mixes of zeros and ones into different images reminiscent of the world in which we believe everything is separated from each other, that the digital images are perceived to be different from each other.

This translation makes us forget, that the raw data of each image consist of the exact same zeros and ones and that there is absolutely nothing to see if they are not translated.

This does not only apply to digital images but any kind of world – animate or inanimate, spiritual or physical – where there appear to be different appearances. In other words, seeing something is based on how the brain translates raw data, that cannot be seen into something we believe to see.

»Your eye is like a camera … Photons pass through your lens, which focuses them onto a spot at the back of your retina. There, specialised photoreceptive structures called rods and cones convert these photons into electromagnetic impulses that your brain interprets as shapes, colours, and textures.« From an article in Wired.

First, an app translates zeros and ones into frequencies, that seem to reach your eyes from your screen. Then those frequencies are converted by the brain into something that more or less looks like you have decided the world to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The human eyes can be compared to a digital camera, that contrary to an analogue camera does not cause any images to be made on a film, but records the data – called RAW – of light coming through the lens, when the shutter button is pressed.

This data, however, can in no way be perceived to be an image of something, before the raw data has been converted into the set up of contrasts that appears to shape a world defined by time and space. This is often done by rendering RAW into a JPEG file.

Likewise, there is nowhere inside the head of us, that the light recorded by the eyes is processed into an image as it is in an analogue camera. The data or frequencies of light coming through the eyes can only be seen as an image reminiscent of the world in the way we expect to see it, when such an image has been fabricated by the brains via its translation of the data it collects from three taps in our eyes, which respectively record red, green and blue frequencies.

If the raw data received by the eyes or any other sense is not translated into something perceivable, there is neither nothing experienced and thus no experiencer.

Facebook can now automatically write captions on images, that can be read by blind people, so their brain can use this info to construct an image inside of them as if they actually see the image on Facebook. The graphic is grabbed from an article in Wired.

As everything we believe to see is a mix of these three frequencies, that the brain has translated into a world of different substantial elements, and as this translation is based on how we perceive the past, we do not see the world but think it – also if we believe to live in the now, come from the heart and whatnot.

It is quite similar with the way Facebook uses artificial intelligence to automatically generate captions on photos in the News Feed so blind people are able to grasp what is in it and thus fabricate an image themselves, as if they, for example, see a pizza like in the image from Facebook, that is grabbed from an article in Wired about this.

The blind one will not know though, that the system in Facebook does not always get it right. And in regards to ´seeing´ anything that seems to be separated from something else hardly anybody know that their ´system´ never gets it right. Separation is not possible, because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

So in the context of that which is one you do not see this article. And neither do you in the context of a world where there seems to be more than one. Everything on the screen, where you seem to see this article, consists of zeros and ones added together in ways that are entirely meaningless to the human mind.

You only seem to look at this as something, because your electronic device has a system, that translates nothingness into wavelengths of light reaching your eyes in ways that the brain, in this case, turns into letters forming English words.

You are translating the raw data coming into your eyes according to your preferences – probably assuming that the way you translate them is the right way, because you know to judge what is right or not. But it is all make-believe.

Reading these words, however, in a country where the internet is censored, some of them may have been changed or left out. If not, you definitely will exercise censor yourself. Based on your past memories and present mood you twist Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, so they fit into the world in the way you expect it to be. See also Do you see a pink flower in this image?.

In other words, the article, that you think you are reading, is not the article that Alexius wrote. What you believe in reading on the screen is a translation made in your brain layered on top of the conversion the system of the electronic device has made. Read more about that in Duality is a simulated layer on top of non-duality.

Neither humans or self-driving cars actually see the world where they appear to be but what their brain has decided for them to see based on the info coming from their senses. But as you can ´see´ in this image, a self-driving car ´sees´ the world quite different from the way you ´see´ it. The graphic is grabbed from Wired.

So what you ´see´ can be compared to what a self-driving car sees, namely nothing. What it ´sees´ is a manipulation of the info received from its sensors into images, that makes it do the right thing.

The brain uses the very same organ to fabricate all the apparently different experiences you seem to have. It does not differentiate between what you consider to be imaginary, reality or spirituality, so dividing them like that is make-believe.

You are bound to get lost in the manipulation of thoughts into seeing a world fabricated to look as if it consists of physical elements that differ from each other – and probably so lost, that you may believe some aspects are more real than others. That is why they seem to be able to hide that the ´the raw data´ of them is nothing translated into something. Read more about that here.

Oneness cannot be found anywhere, as it takes more than one to find something.

But when you are willing to set aside the translation of the brain by saying ´Dunno know what and where I am´ you are not definable as someone, wherefore there is nobody to experience the translation of ´raw data´ into physical appearances. Hence that which cannot be translated and therefore not experienced, namely the enlightenment of that which is one, is bid welcome.

When you do not know what and where you are, there is not something to define you and thus not someone to hide the formlessness of that which is you. The animation is grabbed from the web.

As all learning is founded on translating that which is one into that which is not one, you cannot learn the enlightenment of that which is one. It is, in fact, the willingness to unlearn all translations – including those that bring about experiences of life, love, unity or being someone at all – that bids it welcome.

If you expect to see the enlightenment of that which is one, you will miss it, as it takes more than one to see something.

That is why neither Alexius or anybody else has been in the enlightenment of that which is one. So when Alexius says it is nothing but bright white light, it is vague memories from when he momentarily stepped aside, and it sucked the nothingness of him through a hole that appeared to be black until there was nothing but that which is one.

Appearing to return to a world where there seems to be more than one after that there is no longing to come back to that which is one, because now you the experience of being there is not real, as it takes more than one to experience something and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Those, however, having visions of light, that is full of love and mystic experiences, regret that they have left their state of mind and tries to return. But although their experience was intense and brought them into an unusual state of mind, it is like an orgasm just a peak experience. And as it is no more real than less intense experiences, what it brings about is not fulfilment but a wish for more, which you only seem to be able to get in a world where there seems to be more than one.

To make long short, anything describable, perceivable, definable or explainable is a translation of that which is one into something that appears to be more than one, wherefore it always brings about the desire for more.

Ultimately speaking no translation is better than another one. Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings also brings out the desire for more, but as it is the desire for more of nothing, the application of them, which often happens all by itself while or after reading them, slowly but surely undoes the belief in seeing something, so keep reading/applying them until there is not something left to hide that which cannot be seen.

NOTE: The above about eyes applies to all senses. If you are tone-deaf, for example, it is not due to a problem in the ear but the brain, which is unable to find the equation in music. In other words, any experience is fabricated by the brain – also if it seems to come from the heart, the astral world and whatnot. So the less you believe your experiences to be real, the less there is to hide the reality of that which cannot be experienced, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

Colours are part of the translation the brain performs of the raw data, it receives from the senses. See Eyes do not see, they translate. […]
