The closer you look, the less you believe what you see is real


You think you have chosen to see what you look at now, but it is fragments of what you saw one second ago pieced together by the brain into what it wants you to experience as if you are viewing it now. Read more about that herePhoto © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius has not invented the headline. It is a rewrite of a movie title. Nor is the rest of the article thought up by him. He cannot think. Thoughts are passing by like frequencies are passing by a radio, which picks up and transmits those it is tuned into. In this article, Alexius is tuned into the following:

They meditate, chant, drink, take drugs or something else to alter their perception of the present moment so they can avoid being in touch with the feelings it seems to bring about. But every time they do something to get rid of an emotion, sadness for example, on a psychological level, they enhance the sense of not being happy. Thus what you consider to be wrong in yourself or the world you increase, the more you try to avoid or correct it.

  • Trying to purify yourself, you enhance feeling condemned.
  • Pursuing freedom, you strengthen the door to your prison.
  • Eating to get healthy, your feeling of being wrong is fed.
  • On a quest for enlightenment, darkness is tightened.
  • Trying to unite, separation is increased.
  • Looking for love, your self-hatred is ratified.
  • Seeking god, you feel more sinful.
  • Meditating to be at peace, your frustrations increase.
  • Searching for a higher self, you confirm you are not good enough.
  • Wanting to be perfect, imperfect is confirmed

This is not to say that you should stop suppressing your feelings. By all means, go ahead and do it – or stop it. It does not matter. Whatever you seem to think, feel or do is a fantasy because what and where you believe to be is fabricated by the brain.

You think you are reading this article now, but actually, you are reading an edited version of what you read one second ago, as the brain has spent one second on filtering and interpreting it in such a way, so you seem to read something that is coherent with the experiences it has made for you in the past.

If reading that makes you want to know what this article really says, and you decide to see the unfiltered and therefore authentic version of it, you are still caught in the game of the brain, namely that what you do and say makes a difference. It is like thinking, you can make a difference in the world of Super Mario. It is not possible. Everything is fixed. But you are free to change your perception of it.

So if the way the brain filters your experience is perceived to be upsetting, you change your perception into something that makes you feel good. Believing that what and where you appear to be is real, you may consider this to cheat. But when you know that every experience is an illusion fabricated by the brain, having them is like watching the show of a magician. You do not want to break the magic spell by looking for authenticity but to perceive the show in a way that entertains you. Read more about that in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

There´s no pink flower in this pic. The color pink does not exist within the reality of the world, so if you see pink, you have constructed the color yourself.

All colours in a light beam, except lime green, have a complementary colour, so if you believe to see pink, which theoretically speaking is the complementary colour of lime green, in the pictures here you are wrong. Pink does not exist. That is why it is said to be an extra-spectral colour in Wikipedia. If you want more factual info about pink, also called fuchsia and magenta, follow this link.

The reason you perceive the colour pink, although it is not there, is that every time you, theoretically speaking, should see it as a complementary colour to lime green, you mix blue and red to create pink so you can fill the gap in the spectrum of a light beam with it.

But if not for gaps, a world where there seems to be more than one would, according to science, not appear there. It was a perceived gap in the pattern, made up by the particles from the big bang, that made it possible for the inconsistent structure to unfold into a world with gaps between everything. In other words, if a gap had not been perceived in the way the particles from the big bang gathered together, there would have been no imperfection to trigger the fantasy of separation.

Perfection, therefore, is the end of separation. But this is not achieved by filling the gaps with love or other childish dreams of togetherness, as the special self would do, since doing so is based on the belief in separation (read more about that here), because without it, there would be nobody to love.

The world is designed, so it appears to be a puzzle, where you are rewarded when you get the pieces right. But the puzzle is incomplete. A piece is missing. No problem, if you perceive it as it is, but if not, an endless quest for something to fill the gap is set in motion.

But perceiving it as it is, gaps neither contribute to imperfection or perfection but to a world where they seem to separate everything and thus to keep together a world where there seems to be more than one. Perceiving it like this, which the basic self does, gaps are what makes it entertaining to experience such a world.

What you think you see, is precisely that. It is an image fabricated by the brain, which has lots of scripts to automatically manipulate the rays of light reaching the eyes into a picture of the world, that looks like you expect it to do. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Once upon a time, a king liked to order people to be beheaded in the blind spot, we all have when we look at something from a specific angle. It is not a gap that we notice because we are conditioned to fill it with something from our memory. The king, therefore, kept seeing the beheaded ones with the head until he changed his viewing angle and they had no head, which he found very amusing.

It is not only the gaps, as mentioned above, but we are also conditioned to fill with what we expect to see. This whole page that you think you see on digital media is a gap that has been filled with something because digital info cannot be seen. Check out Eyes do not see, they translate.

The same applies to the rest of the world that you believe to see. It is as virtual as this page, and so is the brain that seems to fill it with something real.

There are probably lots of gaps in this article which has been filled with something that makes sense to you.

After the big bang particles grouped together in an almost perfect pattern. There were a few gaps, though. Had it turned out to be a perfect pattern, it would have been static and not unfolded into the universe. It is the gaps that keep the universe expanding.

In other words, everything in the world is based on imperfection and would cease to appear, if not for imperfection. Is it not beautiful, that it is so clear to see, everything that which is not one is imperfect and only seems to exist, because of incompletion.

That which is one and formless cannot manifest a world defined by time and space, but if you imagine oneness to be incomplete, forms seem to appear around the gaps, that seems to last for a while, and the world of duality appears. But as all appearances in the world are based on time and space, they are bound to have an end.

If you do not identify with appearances, but enjoy them while they last, you will not end, when the appearance of your body stops.

This is not to say that you will continue as a soul. It is just a subtle appearance invented by those identifying with the appearance called a person in order to extend this identification when the appearance of a personality in a body is gone. Soul, god or whatever concept of the world dies with the body, as all concepts of the world are fabricated in the brain of the body. What is left, when the body ends, is that which is one.

Oneness is not a new appearance to experience for a while, as it is one eternal now – and so there is no way to explain it in an imperfect world, where appearances seem to come and go in linear time. Neither is there a way to go there. All doing comes from incompletion, so that which is incomplete, namely the world of duality, must be undone for that which is one to be uncovered.

To undo the world is to not own thoughts, as gaps are maintained by thoughts.

To warn about something unreal not being real, you serve the unreal, because the warning will make that which you warn about to appear as if it is real. Why else warn about it?

The world of duality can be compared to one of those thriving fansites on the internet, where the community is devoted to continuing the story of a TV show, that has been cancelled.

One moment in the world of non-duality, the idea of a world of duality was exploited. It started with a big bang from where time was projected forward in a linear way. There seemed to be no going back in this world. If ice cubes melt in water, they cannot be extracted from it and made into the same ice cubes again. The light radiating from a lamb or the sun only goes forward. It never returns.

At least this is how it seemed in the world of duality, that non-duality was exploring, but as non-duality is one and one has no time, it is not possible neither to go forward nor backward in two different movements. It has to be the same movement, so the expansion of the world of duality was contracted, the very same moment it was expanded.

There are no differences in non-duality, so the metaphor of this article should not be taken too literally. It is just a way to illustrate, that the world is long time gone, and that what seems to be there are bits and pieces or loops of it, that are played again and again in an interactive movie on the internet, so the cancelled show called the world of duality seems to be going on.

The idea of a world of duality was cancelled because It is not possible only to go forward. Least of all it is not possible to only know the past and not the future as in oneness everything is simultaneously.

In other words: The idea of a world was cancelled the very moment it was conceived. However, parts of oneness were so excited by the idea that they made a fan site, where they fabricated an ongoing story of the cancelled world of duality.

They made the fansite in such a way, so that followers of it could participate in the virtual story and built their own version of it – just like the fan sites in the context of the world are fabricating follow-up stories to for example cancelled TV show, that followers participate in and discuss as if they are real. Or just like some joins in groups and make a roleplay based for example on the second world war, that in linear time ended a long time ago.

There is no harm in doing a roleplay. It is not real, but if you think it is, it may seem harmful. No worries. Thinking so is just a mistake, that can be corrected.

This add from the internet shows, that the advertising industry knows how to make something unreal appear as if it will make your appearance as a person in the world more real.

On the news, Alexius recently read about a psychologist who says, »it is dangerous young people use their smartphone for communicating with others instead of meeting physically. It is a problem for the brain because it is not made to deal with meeting others in a virtual world.«

He had no scientific data to prove his claim. Actually, he had nothing to back up his statement. And it is doubtful there is, because it is actually the same organ in the brain, that process both so-called reality and imagined or virtual reality. To the brain, it is all the same. Whether you call it virtual reality or just reality, it is a fabrication made in the brain.

The contacts you seem to have physically are no different from the connections you seem to have virtually. In both cases, the world is in the eye of the beholder. It is you, who decides how to perceive the world, and it is you, who fabricate a response to how you have chosen to perceive it. It is a construction of thoughts which purpose is to feel the world, so you believe you are there amongst other separated entities, but even though contacts in the world appear to be between at least two separated entities, there is ultimately only one, namely you, no matter in what context the communication seems to occur.

The purpose of the world is to disguise that and make it appear as if it is real, that there is more than one. The psychologist, who came with the statement at the beginning of this article, plays his part well in fulfilling this purpose, as the bullshit he is saying with such seriousness helps to reinforce, that the physical world is real, although it is just as virtual as the online world.
