++ Forgetting to be someone is easy when special feelings are not sought out

Do not stop at any thought or you will be fixated there.

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 something fixed. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Being alive as someone definitive, you are probably used to get physical wellness from a sound sleep, sex or massage, for example. But that is because the brain produces thoughts, that seemed to imply you are someone in a body. This the brain fails to do at the moment of death because it is running out of oxygen.

»And his wife looking behind her, was turned into a statue of salt.« Genesis 19:26

So if you try to recall the memories of physical comfort to distance yourself from dying, it is not gonna work. Just like in a dream the thoughts are floating around without being connected to a specific ´I´ in a tangible body, so it is not possible to add them up into what used to be an experience of physical pleasure. 

The rapid and chaotic movement of thoughts and feelings that starts at the moment of death, you cannot get rid of tby projecting them on your body or the world, because the brain does not have enough oxygen to construct an experience of physicality.

Trying to do so, you are stuck in the consciousness of being someone in a substantial body, but without a physical world to back it up. In other words, if there still is a desire to get satisfaction from smoking, having sex or other things involving a body, there is no way of fulfilling it. And as the brain cannot fabricate a conscious experience of you being substantial in a tangible world, there is no experience to distract you from the fact that you are not something but nothing.

Any experience you have – including living or dying – is a deception. It is not possible to experience anything, 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. Thus it can only be in a dream where there seems to be more than one, that someone appears to be experiencing something.

Though there is no one in a dream, you insist on being someone definitive there and not the formlessness of oneness. You believe your feelings support this claim because they seem to manifest you as someone substantial in a tangible world, but as there is no more than that which is one, your feelings do nothing but capture you in the illusion of what you believe to be.

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.

But as everything in a world defined by time and space has an end, so have the feelings, that seems to confirm you are someone in a physical body. In other words, if not holding onto those feelings or anything else defining you as someone definitive, there is no end.
