++ You cannot realise that which is you because it is no different from that which is one

While having a dream in which you believe to be someone, the belief hides that you are not in the dream but in your bed. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»The thing’s hollow – it goes on forever – and – oh my God! – it’s full of stars!« said the astronaut Bowman in the movie ´2001: A Space Odyssey´ after he shuts down HAL – the computer that until then had been in control of the trip.end of

If you are a long time reader of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, you probably have grasped, there is no more than the formlessness of oneness, and even though it takes up no space since it is non-dimensional and thus as flat as can be, it contains everything there is. See also hack #2.6 Size does not matter.

When returning from the moments of emptiness, where you forgot to confirm the brains rendering of a world defined by time and space as real, there are vague memories of colourful lights – a bit light the light show Bowman saw in the movie ´2001: A Space Odyssey´ but much faster – bursting into colourless light. It is brighter than anything else, and it sucks out every bit of info that attests to you as being someone and leave it at the edge of a black hole and so the nothingness of you effortlessly descents into that which is one.*

This is not to say that you have seen that which is one. First of all, the awareness that experience what you appear to be was not turned on. Secondly, that which is one is formless so it cannot be seen. Thirdly, for you to experience or realise something, it must be judged as separated from you, and there is no separation in that which is one.

As long as you believe are spiritual, pure consciousness or whatnot, you feel trapped in a world where there seems to be more than one because believing to be something involves more than one.

In a dream, anything can happen, and though it may appear as if you are about to drown, for example, this is not so, because you are in your bed. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

To make long short, as it takes more than one to see, understand or realise something and as there is no more than that which is one, it is not possible to see, understand or realise something. Yet it seems possible to be having a dream of a world where there seems to be more than one in which one is able to learn what it is. But just like having a dream in such a world, nobody is making it, and nobody is in it.

And regardless of what you believe to be and see in a dream, it is all gone when you wake up. In fact, it was never there, nor was you, because you were in your bed. Thus there is nobody in a dream who is learning or realised anything.

This metaphor should not be understood as if there is someone – a consciousness or whatnot – having a dream of a world where there seems to be more than one, because that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

In fact, no explanation in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings should be taken literally but as a metaphor describing that which cannot be explained, as it is not possible to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.
