Being in sync with the brain´s script or not

Santa Claus is a fantasy you believe is real until you grow up. The same applies to what and where you believe in being (read more about that here). Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings in a particular order. But in the case of this article, you may benefit from having read hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

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

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

In other words, when being someone substantial in a tangible world does not seem appealing, one should ignore the stream of thoughts the brain makes to simulate the existence of such a world. Nor should one try to stop or change it, but to sense the nothingness the brain has twisted into this stream of something.

However, this is not possible while experiencing being in a world of something. But as the experience of something takes the brain one second to make (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 a state of not-knowing for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most,* if you want to return to the consciousness of being someone. The brain falls into a coma in the absence of continuous response to its experiences, so you disappear in the nothingness from where you were conceived. Thus there is nobody to perceive that nothing is something anymore.

In the latter case, you see, hear, feel and taste glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one until there is no perception of time and space and, thus, no glimpses but one light, or one sound, feeling or taste. You will not know this because it takes more than than one to be aware of something. For the same reason, there is nobody to know that a world defined by time and space is gone and never was there. 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 be, 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.

If you are confused about what you are, you are well on the way into a state of not-knowing, which is the invitation, the enlightenment of that which is one patiently has been waiting for. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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 only requires you to admit that you do not have the willingness for this. By doing so, you acknowledge that being and having more than that which is one is make-believe. Thus you have set off on the journey without distance to that which is one.

Regarding willingness, see 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 believing to have them. Applying any other duality hack, this is a process over time where you enjoy believing your experiences are real while having that belief undone. The hack you are reading, HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end, is excellent for this. So we go on with this hack.

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 is free. All experiences are processed by the brain, also those believed to come from the heart, higher consciousness or whatnot. Consequently, without the brain, it is not possible to experience ourselves as somebody.

So no matter what kind of self we are, we need the brain to shape us as somebody. The special self denies this and always oppose the brain. But what you fight, you are based on. On the other hand, the basic self does not hide its dependency on the brain but proudly follows it. And just like a magician’s tricks are laid bare, the more you watch them, the experiences of the brain are exposed as nothing, the more you follow them.

Hence the basic self sooner or later realises that being someone is make-believe. And so is this realisation, as there is nobody to be aware of anything. That is why, eventually, there does not appear to be something to hide there never was or will be anything but that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

What you believe in being 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.

Relating to the brain´s script

The special self is so removed from its basic nature that it thinks it needs to be grounded or transformed (read more about being grounded here). On the other hand, the basic self has no such needs. It reacts to the thoughts of the brain as they are and not as it reckons they should be. Therefore, as the basic self always is in sync with the present experience processed by the brain, it feels complete.

However, since the special self does not react to the present experience as it is but how it expected it to be, it is never in sync with the present. It blames the brain for this inconsistency and tries to exclude what it perceives to come from the brain and only include what it judges to come from the heart. But all experiences are processed by the brain, and it is impossible to eliminate any part, except in one´s perception of them.

Practically speaking you are always in sync with the brain. You cannot choose not to follow its script. But you can choose to think you know a better way. However, this does not change anything other than you you do not feel satisfied but confused because the script goes on as programmed by the brain.

In other words, being in sync with the brain´s script of duality is not a matter of waiting for things to happen according to the manuscript. They always do. It is simply a matter of perceiving your reaction to the script as ´it is what it is.´ By doing so, you see your response is not singular but twofold. Thus you are in sync with the script of duality.

Being in sync with the brain´s script or not

If you perceive the sun to go up and down, your perception is out of sync with the brain´s script because the sun is not going up and down. Instead, it is what and where you believe in being 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.

Therefore, your perception is not coordinated with what is going on, namely that your feet are 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 from a static perception founded on suppressed 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 process your reaction and make a perception of it 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 this is like listening to the Ukrainian pianist Lubomyr Melnyk. He plays 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 the present 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 speed because it needs time to shape its appearance, so it seems to be in control. That is why it meditates or something else it believes will slow down things.

Perceiving your reaction to the brain´s script of duality as ´it is what it is,´ your response is revealed to be twofold. Therefore, since you in sync with duality, you feel entertained. Besides, you are not that far from the perception, ´dunno what it is which connects you with the empty breath.* Thus you are in the bliss of nothing instead of the excitement of nothing disguised as something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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 brain´s script 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.´

When saying so, you do not ratify the world of the brain as something. Thus you move back the one second in linear time, it has taken the brain to twist nothing into the present experience of something (read more about that here). In this perceived gap between nothing and oneness, you are not aware of being someone in a world of something, so even though you still appear to be there, you do not perceive yourself to be anybody in a world of something. Therefore, as you are in the bliss of nothing, there is no reason to look for the happiness of something (read more about that here).

What is the difference between the basic and special self?

Think about the remote control for a television. It has buttons assigned with specific channels. But it is beyond your control what the channels show. Thus the remote control does not establish you as unique unless you imagine the buttons obey you and turn on something that enhances your significance.

So, as you can see, to be the special self is not about what you do, but the thoughts concerning it. Especially thoughts about control – like when you assume you master the remote control, your coffee, children or pets. Or if you have a boss and seem to be on top of that by thinking, you could do it much better – or administering others by judging or blaming them.

Being a basic self is all about serving the brain, and since you are made by it to do that, you feel fulfilled.
