+ Being and seeing something is not real, nor is dying

In a world where there seems to be more than one, everything is experienced to be separated from each other. But since it requires more than one to experience this and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless, the experience is not real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
If this article is experienced to be written by somebody and read by somebody else, you believe it is possible to be and have more that which is one. But as oneness is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one, so this experience is not real, nor is any other experience since it takes more than one to experience anything.

When a world where there seems to be more than one is believed to be real, this belief seems to hide that which cannot be believed, namely the formlessness of oneness.

For the same reason, there is no one in a world where there seems to be more than one. Just like within the context of such a world, although you may experience there is somebody in a dream you appear to have, it is an illusion. Not even yourself are there. You are in your bed.

Since the formlessness of oneness is one perpetual present, a dream of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one ends the very same moment it starts. That is why it is not possible to have a conscious experience of being in such a world unless you hold onto your memories and thus seem to establish a difference of time.

In a world of linear time, however, nothing seems to last, so everybody fears the end of what they appear to be. Thus they invent concepts like heaven, that makes them appear to go on as a better version of themselves in a better world, where they are part of something bigger.

But as that which is you is no different from that which is one, and as it takes more than one to be anything somewhere, that which is you is nowhere. In other words, the experience of being somewhere, despite where that might be, is make-believe. Having this belief undone may seem to take a while you appear to be someone in linear time. And so what. Time is an illusion!

By focusing on different parts of this image, you have experiences that seem to differ from each other, The belief that it is possible to be and have more than one is, therefore, upheld, and also that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet you do not exist any more than the persons in this image. They are not real. There is no room for them in the electronic media that makes them appear to be there. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
As it takes more than one to achieve something, there is nothing to accomplish in that which is one. It is only in a world where there seems to be more than one does this seems possible. Yet nothing that is real is accomplished, as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

As it takes more than one to exist, existence must be outside of that which is one, but since there is nothing outside of it, nor inside it, as that calls for more than one, nothing exist.

For the same reason that which is you is not in a world where there seems to be more than one, nor is such a world inside of that which is you or anywhere else. Just like a dreamer is not in its dream, nor is the dream in the dreamer or anywhere else. Hence it is not knowing what and where you are, that reveals the formlessness of oneness. Not in a sense, that it is seen or realised. Only what is outside of oneness can be viewed or realised – and there is nothing outside of it since it has no beginning or end.

What actually is revealed you cannot know since the revealed is that which is one and it takes more than one to know something.

If you do not try to hold onto any thought, but go with the flow of them, they do not seem to manifest something definitive. Consequently, you do not feel as if you are boxed in. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
Believing to be someone definitive, you are probably used to get physical wellness from a good nights sleep, sex, fitness, yoga or massage, for example. But that is because the brain produces thoughts, that seem to imply you are in a body. This it is not able to do at the moment of death because it is running out of oxygen.

Thoughts are still produced, but as they no longer can be experienced to come from a specific self in a tangible body, the experience is not that you are someone definitive but someone who is going crazy.

That is if you are not in the habit of sorting out your disorientation but having its uncontrolled energy ignite a take-off to the empty breath because then you are accustomed to the emptiness of not-knowing, wherefore there is no one to be bothered from thoughts not adding up to something familiar. See hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

In that case, the rapid flow of thoughts is immediately replaced by a chaotic flow of feelings. And if a state of not-knowing is not left in favour of going down memory lane to find something well-known that can support the image of being someone definitive, everything that seems to be something is terminated by the enlightenment of that which is one. See hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one. Not being someone at all most often, however, is avoided by fearing something.

But very few get past the fleeting thoughts because they try to capture the ones that seem friendly and compile them into an experience of being a self in a tangible body. But as there is not enough oxygen to hold onto them and produce a conscious experience of being in a body, the satisfaction that comes from smoking, sex or something else that requires such a thing cannot be found. Thus it slowly dawns on you, there is no happiness to get because what you used to experience as you was make-believe. You feel stuck in nowhere and then panic sets in.

Any experience you believe to have – including to live and die – is a deception. It is not possible to experience anything at all, because 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. Yet it seems as if it is possible to have a dream where there appears to be more than one.

That which is you cannot be known, because it is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to know something.

Even though there is no one in a dream, you insist on being someone in it and that your responses to it support this claim. But as everything in a dream has an end, so have the reactions, that seem to attest to you are someone in a physical body. However, if not holding onto those or anything else that defines you as someone definitive, there is no end.

PART 4:
If the volume of music is experienced to be too loud, you can turn it down – or shut it off. In similar ways, many other things in the world can be controlled. Not death though. It can be postponed but not stopped.

Yet the experience of death as the end of you will change if not fighting it but instead going with its flow, as that very abruptly undoes the belief in being someone definitive so that there is nobody gracefully falling into the formlessness of that which is one.

In other words, when not defining what appears to be dying, nothing returns to the formlessness of oneness.

IMPORTANT:
If you interpret anything in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings as if death is the way to return to that which is you or in any way a solution to your apparent problems, you are out of sync with them. Death is an illusion and thus not a solution to anything. Nor does anything experienced as mundane, spiritual and whatnot need a solution because any experience is an illusion, as it takes more than one to experience something and there is no more than that which is one.

In other words, if you throughout your apparent existence as someone definitive have not established a habit of entering a state of not-knowing, death does not undo the belief that it is possible to be someone definitive. On the contrary, it enhances it, because if you are not somebody there is nobody to die.

  1. […] *) This should not be understood as dying is similar to applying the duality hacks, or that death is a solution at all. Death is the end of what you believe to be, so if that belief has not been undone before dying, what you believe to be is not going to heaven or anywhere else, but it dies with the brain. See also Being and seeing something is only possible in a dream. […]
