++ Existence is outside of that which is one, but there is nothing outside of it

By focusing on different parts of this image, you have experiences that seem to differ from each other, Hence the belief that it is possible to be and have more than one is upheld, and therefore 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.

As it takes more than one to achieve something, no achievement is possible in that which is one. It is only in a world where there seems to be more than one that it seems possible to accomplish something. Yet it is not real, because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

In other words, whatever you seem to be and have in a world where there seems to be more than one is nothing – just like within the context of such a world no matter what a dreamer seems to be and in the world of a dream, it is revealed as nothing when the dream is over.

A dreamer is not in its dream, nor is the dream in the dreamer or anywhere else. Likewise, 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 somewhere else.

For you to experience that you are real, there must be more than one, because it is only in relation to somebody else that can you appear to exist. But as that which is one is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than one, so whatever make you appear to exist is an illusion and consequently you as well. In other words, the wish to feel alive comes from being alive.

So where is that which is you? As it is not different from that which is one, and as it takes more than one to be somewhere, it is nowhere. But since oneness is formless and therefore endless, it is also everywhere. The person you believe to be, however, is not everywhere. It is nowhere because it has a beginning and an end.

Hence not knowing what and where you are, there is nothing to hide that which is everywhere, namely the formlessness of oneness.

Existence is outside of that which is one, but there is nothing outside of it, nor inside it, as that calls for more than one.

That a world where there seems to be more than one does not hide that which is one anymore does not mean, you see the formlessness of oneness. If you think you are conscious of it, you still believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, because there is nobody to be aware of anything in oneness, since being conscious about something requires more than one. To make long short, only that which is outside of oneness can be realised – and there is nothing outside of that which is one since it is endless.
