+ Do you see a pink flower in this image?

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.

If you think, there is a pink flower in this image, you are wrong. The perception of pink – also called magenta or fuchsia – is a trick carried out by the brain, as this colours is not part of the spectrum in a light beam.

All colors in a light beam have a complementary colour except green (more accurate lime green), which theoretically speaking should have pink as a complementary colour. But it is not contained in a light beam.

As most humans expect order, system and meaning in the world, they consider the missing colour in the light beam to be a gap that must be filled. So every time you ´see´ what is supposed to be the complementary colour of lime green, it is fabricated by the brain by mixing blue and red into pink. That is why pink, which in professional terms is called magenta and originally fuchsia, is called an extra-spectral colour in Wikipedia.

According to science the universe, as we experience it, would not be there, if all the particles coming from the big bang had gathered together in a flawless way to make up a perfect pattern of consistency. But in the last moment of refining it, a gap or an imperfection arose, and because of this flaw the incomplete pattern started to unfold into what is considered to be the universe, where we live as separated beings. If the particles, however, had gathered together in a perfect pattern with no gaps, this universe would not appear to exist.

In other words, perfect order is the end of the universe and thus of you and me, because without gaps we would not appear as separated from each other and thus not exist as someone definitive.

Yet imperfection is resisted by most of those believing to be someone definitive, as it seems to make their appearance in this universe very risky, chaotic and uncertain. They prefer to be in a comfort zone where everything is arranged in an orderly way with guaranties of safety, so they can avoid the risk of going with the flow of chaos and instead seem to have a meaningful life as someone separated from everything else. In order to uphold their way as the right one and not risk anything unexpected to disturb them, they rigorously live by rules of who and what is good and bad.

What you think you see, is exactly that. It is an image fabricated by the brain, which has lots of scripts to automatically correct and change the incoming rays of light into an image of the world, that looks like you expect it to be, The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Every experience of being in a universe defined by time and space is fabricated by the brain
Do you know, that due to the way light beams reach our eyes, everything is seen upside down But as this contradicts the collectively accepted way of how the world looks, everything you ´see´ has been flipped by the brain into a coherent right-side-up image (see the illustration).

As not only that but everything else – including astral worlds and spiritual experiences – is a fabrication done by the brain, it uses the very same organ to processes everything, whether what you believe it to real or imaginary.

Your experience of the world is full of gaps, that the brain fills with what you expect to see, so that it does not appear fragmented but whole, and thus you as well.

It is a bit like a compact disc with music. It is so full of small holes, and you only hear all the music, because the cd player is made to guess what is missing.

Everybody has a visual gap or blind spot located on the part of the retina attached to the optic nerve. It is not easily detected, because the eyes and the brain work together to bridge the gap with made fragments of images from the memory bank of the brain. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This above corrections of what we ´see´ is far from the only ones generated by the brain. When looking at something in a certain angle, there is a gap in the light beams reaching our eyes, so part of the image actually is missing. It is commonly known as blind spots. Yet we do not experience anything to be missing, because the brain fills the gap with what we expect to see by using the info from the received light beams that surrounds it.

Once upon a time there was a king, who amused himself by having people beheaded in the exact angle of his blind spot, so even though someone had been beheaded, he could not see it, as the brain filled the gap in his vision with the missing part, which it constructed from image of the whole person it had its memory bank.

But when the king slightly moved his head, he was out of the blind spot, so there was not a gap in his vision filled up by the brain, as if the beheaded person still had a head,  but a man without a head, and so the king laughed and laughed.

The world is designed, so it appears to be a real puzzle, where you are rewarded by the brain, when you get the pieces right. Unfortunately this puzzle is incomplete. A piece is missing and so an endless quest for completion sets off.

It is not only the color pink, that is constructed in your head. This image actually only consists of zeros and ones, and if you see pink flowers hanging out from a wall on a background of a blue sky with white clouds, you are making it all up in your head. The same goes for the rest of the world. It is as virtual as this image, and so is your head – just like everything in the world in a computer is just as virtual as the program making it.

It is not only the color pink, that is constructed by the brain. This digital image only consists of zeros and ones, and yet the brain fabricates an image for you to see of pink flowers hanging out from a wall on a background of a blue sky with white clouds. The same applies to the rest of the world. It is just as virtual as this image, and so is the brain – just like everything in the world seen on a computer screen is just as virtual as the app generating tit. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

What is perceived to be real is make-believe
Each time you seem to be disturbed by a gap in the universe, you most likely feel lost, until the brain promise it will be filled tomorrow, when you understand dark matter and energy, obey the commandments of god, realise your higher self, find your soul-mate or whatnot. But tomorrow is just another gap. It never comes.

The world is based on the belief that it is possible to be separated. Your ideas about peace, love, unity, and sharing are not gonna change that. On the contrary. As these ideas also are are based on separation, they enhance the belief that it is possible to be someone separated from someone else.

Since that which is one is formless and therefore endless, and as it takes more than one to be separated, no separation is possible. Yet it seems possible to believe so. Thus it is not separation but the belief that it is possible, which needs to be undone.

Most want perfection but not complely, as they must be incomplete to appear separated, and thus seem able to prove there is more than that which is one. This is the reason they always want more, even though the only thing they can be  to get more of is suffering. But accepting that thisis their own choice, they have the power to undo it, so it does not seem to hide there is no more than that which is one, and thus no suffering, as it takes more than one to suffer from something.

There is probably lots of gaps in this article, that the brain will fill fr you.

In about two hours every day you are literally blind, because the brain screens out what you see, when you move your eyes, as otherwise you would get seasick. The reason we do not notice this blindness is that the brain fills the holes with visual impressions of what it predicts to happen. See also the article Do you see a pink flower in this image. […]
