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 a color as pink – also called magenta or fuchsia – is a trick carried out by the brain. This color does not exist. It is not part of the spectrum in a light beam and therefore neither in a rainbow.

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. Yet it is not contained in a light beam.

As most humans expect order, system and meaning in the world, they consider the missing colour to be a gap in the light beam, that must be corrected, so a complementary colour to lime green is fabricated by the brain through mixing blue and red into pink. You could say a script – just like in a computer – is made in the brain for that to be executed every time you ´see´, what is supposed to be the complementary colour of lime green. That is why magenta, which originally was called fuchsia and in popular speech pink, is called an extra-spectral colour in Wikipedia.

I may not the best to explain technical stuff like this, so if you want more factual info about it, please read this article about the non-existent colour pink.

Elsewhere you can read how the universe, as we experience it, would not be there, if all the particles making up the big bang had gathered in a perfect and meaningful order. In the last-minute of collecting all articles together in a perfect order, a gap or an imperfection arose, and because of this imperfection a universe started unfolding. If the particles had gathered in a perfect order with no gap, a world, where there seems to be more than one, would not have appeared to unfold.

In other words, it is the gaps that make you and I appear as somebody in the world. Without them there is nothing to differ us from each other. In other words, perfect order is the end of the world, where there seems to be more than one.

Yet most persons cannot stand the imperfection of the world. Appearing as someone there seems risky, chaotic and all too uncertain for them. They want to live in a comfort zone with guaranties of safety, so going with the flow of the world is avoided, and replaced by arranging everything in an orderly manner, so that it seems meaningful to be living as someone definitive in a world separated from everything else. In order to uphold this meaning 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 scripts to correct and change the incoming rays of light into an image of the world, that looks like you imagine it to be, The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The so-called reality of the world is an imagination
Do you know, that when we are born into the world, it is seen upside down due to the way light beams reach our eyes? Well, we still do, but as this is not the accepted image of the world established among those believing to live in a capsule of time and space, the brain corrects it every split second.

It is by the way the same organ in the brain, that process both so-called reality and imagined reality, so to the brain it is all the same. It can produce any world we want to see, so if it is a world of angels or so-called spiritual beings you want to see, that is what it will produce.

The world is full of gaps, but the brain deceives you to conceive wholeness, where there is none.

Everybody has some type of visual gap or blind spot, which is located on the part of the retina attached to the optic nerve They are not easily detected though, as the eyes and the brain work together to bridge the gap. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This basic correction of what we ´see´ is far from the only correction fabricated by the brain. In certain angles, for instance, there are gaps in the light beams reaching our eyes – commonly called blind spots – so that part of the image we appear to see is actually missing. To fabricate the whole image, that you expect it to see, the brain simple uses the info of the received light beams, that is surrounding the gap in order to construct a whole image for you to ´see´.

Playing with the so-called reality of the world
There once was a king, who amused himself by having people beheaded in the exact angle of his blind spot, so even though somebody had been beheaded, he would not see it, as the brain filled the gap in his vision with an image from it is memory bank of a whole person.

But when the king slightly moved his head, there was no more gap in his vision being filled by the brain, and so he saw a man without a head, which made him laugh and laugh.

The world is designed, so it appears to be a real puzzle, where you are rewarded, when you get the pieces right. Unfortunately the world and its concepts are incomplete. A piece is missing in the puzzle and so an endless search for completion goes on.

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.

The reality of the world is nothing but make-believe
When you are experiencing gaps, you feel like something is missing or needs to be improved or fixed. Each time you seem to be disturbed by the incompleteness of the world, the brain tries to calm you by fabricating something in the experienced gap. The fabrications may be scientific ideas of dark matter and energy or fantasies of god, soul(mate), self-realisation, love, peace and other things that will come tomorrow. Tomorrow, however, is just another gap. It never comes.

The world is based on separation, but your ideas about peace, love and unity will not change that, because they also are based on separation, namely your feelings of being incomplete. Nothing can change separation, because separation is not real.

It is not possible to be separated from that which is one and whole, but it is possible to believe so. In other words, if you do not believe to be incomplete, there is nothing to change.

But you want to be incomplete, as that seems to prove, there is more than that which is one. You always want more than one. That is why you appear to be in a world, where there seems to be more than one, even though the only thing you are sure to get more of is suffering. But by accepting this to be your choice, you have the power to undo it, and come back to that which is one, where there is no suffering, because it takes more than one to suffer.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings are probably full of gaps – but you probably have learnt how to fill t em.


NOTES: 

  • The gaps described above is just a few examples of how persons themselves fabricate the world they seem to experience. According to science it is only 4-5% of the universe, that can be seen. The rest is hidden. To explain the little, that seems to be seen, as real, this hidden gap in the universe is thought to consists of 22% dark matter and 74% dark energy. It is all wishful thinking though – as is the whole idea of the existence of a world where there seems to be more than one.
