+++ Being in sync with the script of the brain or not

The self, the consciousness, the brain and that which is one

The brain cannot force the consciousness that it has implemented in the self it has created to acknowledge the experiences it continuously fabricates of a tangible world. But if the self wants to appear as it exists as someone substantial in the tangible world of the experiences, its consciousness has to endorse them as experiences of the self (read more about that here) because otherwise there is not something to confirm the existence of it.

If appearing as someone substantial in a tangible world does not seem appealing to the self, it should not pay attention to the stream of thoughts the brain makes to simulate the existence of such a world. Nor should it try to stop or change the constant stream, but sense to the emptiness from where the brain seems to have created it.

This, however, is not possible to do while experiencing to be something. But as the experience of something is made by the brain, and as it takes one second to do that (read more about that here), you can sense the unprocessed version of any experience of something at the beginning of that second (read more about that here), and thus remain in the bliss of not-knowing (read more about that here) what and where the brain makes you experience to be one second later.

You cannot continue in this state of not-knowing* for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most. See the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks. After that, you must again acknowledge that you are someone substantial by having conscious experiences of the tangible world rendered by the brain because otherwise, the brain falls into a coma, and you disappear in the nothingness from where your existence was conceived, wherefore there is nobody to experience nothing to be something anymore.

If the latter is the case, the unprocessed experiences from a state of not-knowing,* which are glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, which you see, hear, feel or taste, quickly seem to merge into one light, sound, feeling or taste and thus bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

As there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless, and as it takes more than one to experience something, the experience of being someone who sees this image is an illusion. And so is, of course, the experience of this article or anything else regardless it seems to be spiritual or mundane. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

As it takes more than one to exist, what you believe to exist is gone and it was never there. And as this includes the believer, there is nobody to experience the light, sound, feeling or taste of oneness. Nor that the nothingness of you gracefully falls through a boundless black hole until there is no hole or anything else appearing to hide that which always has been and always will remain, namely the formlessness of oneness.

You can read about the ins and outs of a black hole here. And here you can learn how to have glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one.

The above explanation should not be taken too literally, as doing so you remain in the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Having this belief undone just requires to admit that you do not have the willingness for this because by doing so, you acknowledge that being and having more than that which is one is make-believe. Thus the journey without distance to that which is one has begun.

About willingness, see also Willingness not to exclude but to include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one or ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

To make long short, the enlightenment of that which is one abruptly terminates all experiences and thus the one appearing to have them. Applying the other duality hacks, it is a process over time, which they help you to enjoy – especially the hack you read, hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one. So, for now, we go on as if we are somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one, and we explore how our experience of being there can be a happy one. 

What you believe to be can be compared to a smartphone. Although it can do thousands of things, it is entirely dependent on its operator – just like you are of the brain. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The fear of being nobody makes you dependent on the brain

Although the basic self feels free to follow the brain and the special self feels free from it, none of them is free. If not for the brain, it is not possible to appear as if you are somebody. Thus the freedom of the special self is pure speculation built on the perception that its experiences are coming from the heart, higher consciousness or whatnot, although all experiences are processed by the brain.

So in each their one way, the basic and special self needs the brain. Without it, they are nobody, and since this is so frightening that they rather die than acknowledging their non-existence,** they are equally dependent on the brain to be ratified as somebody. The basic self does not hide this and proudly follows the brain. The special self, on the other hand, denies this and always oppose the brain. Yet what you fight, you need.

Just like the tricks of a magician are laid bare, the more you watch them, the experiences of the brain are exposed tas nothing distorted into something, the more you follow the brain. Hence the basic self sooner or later realises that the appearance as someone in a tangible world is a deception.

Having fully realised that it does not appear to be someone anymore. Consequently, there is nobody to recognise that this or any other realisation is an illusion because there is nobody to know anything since that takes more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

Relating to the script of the brain

The special self is so removed from its basic being that it needs to be grounded or be transformed into a higher self (read more about being grounded here). But the basic self has no such needs. It does not search for anything but relates to the thoughts coming from the brain as they are, so it always is in sync with the present experience processed by the brain.

The basic self has no need to stand out as special. Hence it is of no interest for those with such a demand, unless they project something special on it themselves. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Relating to the thoughts of the brain does not mean you must be in agreement with them to feel good. As long as your reaction refers to the thoughts of the brain, you will feel entertained whether you seem to be angry or calm.

Nor does relating to the thoughts of the brain make your life more consistent. Maybe you get an impulse to read this article in the middle of doing the dishes, and so you do, regardless of being the basic or special self, because the brain is in charge no matter what you believe to be. It is not in charge of how you perceive this interruption and thus, how you respond to it.

The special self does relate to the present experience produced by the brain but how it had expected it to be. Thus it feels fragmented.

As the special self feels incomplete, the apparent inconsistency in its experience triggers that, so it perceives it to be wrong and thus responds in a neurotic way. It blames the brain for this and tries to exclude what it perceives to get from it and only include what it judges to come from from the heart, for example. But all experiences are processed by the brain, and it is not possible to eliminate any part, except in one´s perception of them.

The basic self, on the other hand, perceives the apparent disturbance as an integrated part of the day´s entertainment. That is if it perceives any disruption at all. Most likely not, because the basic self feels fulfilled, so it has no need to perceive anything as incomplete.

Being in sync with the script of the brain or not

If you perceive the sun to go up and down, your perception is out of sync with the script of the brain because the sun is not going up and down. It is what and where you believe to be, that is going up and down. See also The sun never goes up and down – it is a deception.

If your perception is in sync with the speed of the Earth and thus of you moving with it in that speed, you feel calm inside while racing outside.

As your perception, therefore, is not coordinated with what is going on, namely that your feet is spinning at around 1.000 miles an hour, while the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour. Hence you will not feel the thrill of moving at such a high rate but the depression coming from a static perception founded on unstable thoughts.

This stagnant perception, which is the one society supports, is meant to make you think that fulfilment does not come from not resonating with the present movement as it is but with a slowed-down version of it that gives you time to make a perception of yourself where you look powerful, humble, balanced, active or whatever you reckon will make appear more impressive.

Feeling the pulsation of the moment, however, there is no time to make up a perception where you seem to be important, nor is there any need to do that because the body shivers with ecstasy as if it is has been shaken by an earthquake of tenderness.

In the case of Alexius he sometimes feels that it like listening to the Ukrainian pianist Lubomyr Melnyk playing extremely rapid, intricate patterns of notes, which produce overtones so trance-inducing, that a cascade sound of purity makes you forget, it is ignited by the speed and complexity underneath it. Read more about that here.

There is no right way to perceive the complexity of a moment. But as long as the perception relates to it and not an edited and simplified version of it, every perception will make you feel good. So good, indeed, that the inherent speed of it may bring about glimpses of enlightenment (read about glimpses of enlightenment here).

The special self may claim that it wants this, but that is a lie. It fears it because speed prevents it from being in control and to thus to shape its appearance. That is why it meditates or something else to slow things down so that it has the time to consume static stuff like books and clothes and become wiser and more beautiful in the future, which it imagines will make it more loved.

To appear as if you are in a world of something but not of it and thus in the bliss of nothing, you can neither be in or out of sync with the script of the brain because both ways ratify that you are in its world of something as well as of it. So unlike the basic self who basically says »It is what it is« and the special self who says »I know what it is,« you say »Dunno what it is.«

Perceiving the script as it is what it is, you can count on always being in sync with it and thus to feel entertained. Besides, you are not that far from the perception, dunno what it is, which connects you with the empty breath* and its the bliss of nothing instead of the brains entertainment of something.

When saying so, you are not ratifying the world of the brain to be something. Since you, therefore, move back the one second in linear time it has taken the brain to twist the nothing into the present experience of something (read more about that here), what is left of you are in the gap between nothing and something where there is no happiness caused by something but bliss caused by nothing. Read more about that in hack #4.5 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

**) An obvious way to escape the exposure of your nothingness is to have sex with others or yourself. If you are more desperate than that, you may choose to die and doing that having a near-death-experience with tunnels of light or whatever the brain has enough oxygen to produce of experiences which can reassure you that you are somebody, so you choose to return to the consciousness of being that. See also the articles in the hack No Death But Life, which you can find in Extra Duality Hacks.
