NZR+++ No-one but the special self wants to make a difference [under development]

As it is very lonesome to be a self, that considers itself as unique and independent, the special self often looks for something bigger, that it can be part of. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The basic self is not that far from forgetting what and where it is and thus in a state of not-knowing, where the apparent different experiences continuously generated by the brain of a world where there seems to be more than one is not perceived to make a difference. Thus the experiences do attest to separation as real and thus neither you as someone definitive.

Just like the body must be used by the one believing to be inside it, thoughts also must be used to keep the brain working.

At first the brain does not notice this, because all experiences are part of the same illusion created by the brain of a world where there seems to be more than one, so whether you experience something to be real, imagined, spiritual or whatnot it is processed in one higgledy-piggledy by the same organ in the brain. But if its experiences are not confirmed as real by the self, it has created, for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, the brain does not feel supported and falls into a coma.

As most persons, however, have replaced the basic self with a special one, that is very far from forgetting itself and falling into a state of not-knowing, this is very seldom a problem for the brain. Should it come close to that – by for example reading Alexius Enlightened Non-Teachings – the brain does its best to make you judge its experiences to make to make a difference.


Those having established themselves as somebody special in charge of themselves, need to meditate or something else that makes them able to be in control of thoughts, because in order to uphold their image of being in charge, they must manipulate the thoughts generated by the brain, so that those judged to be good appear to be made by itself.


If the basic self fabricated by the brain is not judged by its consciousness to be inferior, there is no need be and/or have more, wherefore the few thoughts needed for keeping the basic self together do not multiply into a self that appears to be bigger. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Following the stream of thoughts exactly as it comes from the brain is like having the brain is blown out and being on autopilot. It can be compared feeling totally absorbed by a TV show after having binge-watched it.


The basic self has no need to relax through meditation and whatnot, since following the stream of thoughts coming from the brain is all it needs to relax. Neither does it think, the reason for appearing to be someone is to learn something special. The special self on the other hand constantly has a need to learn something, that can to establish it as more unique, authentic, powerful, important, free and independent but yet part of something greater.

But as it always strains every nerve in order to accomplish this, it is in constant need for more energy and relaxation, which is why the gurus praising us as unique beings, always promise we will get more of that by following them. See also You cannot profit from reality.


Those who think we are here to learn something want to be someone definitive because only as such do you seem to be able to learn something. Yet being that which is you, there is no need of learning anything but to unlearn everything, because that which is you cannot learn anything, as it is that which is one and it takes more than one to learn anything.


When you think, you are in the world to learn who you are, you do not want that, because learning requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one.


The special self likes to think that by saying »we all are one« it appears to be spiritual. And it might deceive those that like itself believes in separation because this statement is founded on that belief.

If the special self takes interest in so-called spirituality, it has to be something with techniques for how to relax, because the special is always busy trying to be more special.

Being busy though does not have to be a problem, because if the energy of it is not controlled it will ignite a take-off to the empty breath, which is very blissful.

But as this bliss comes from being in a state of not-knowing, and as the whole world of the special self is built upon knowing something, it rejects what really would make it relax, namely to not know what and where it is.


Most want something that reminds them of the past so that they seem to escape the present thoughts of the brain.


When you are nobody, there is not somebody to be bothered by thoughts. Consequently, only those who want to make a difference have a need to break away from thoughts via meditation, mindfulness or other techniques, that seem to be able to stop those thoughts judged to disturb what they believe to be.


If you are fed up with the brains basic rendering of you as someone in a world defined by time and space, the special self sets in by offering you more exotic ways of perceiving it, for example by coming from the heart (read more about that con trick here), living in the now or having direct experiences.

But since all experiences – no matter where you believe they come from or how they seem to be experienced – are a construction of thoughts – read more about that here – which are fabricated by the brain, your perception of having your own special experiences is a rewrite of those made by the brain.


Whether the special self convince you to indulge or refrain from sex, the purpose is to enhance the belief that you are in charge of your own life.


No matter how you experience the appearances on a computer screen and where you believe the experience to come from, whatever is experienced to be on the screen is not there. Every part of it is an illusion generated by the computer, and it only seems to be real due to your perception of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Most like to believe, that thoughts produced by the brain are evil and of the ego. Yet they are not of something but nothing, as that is what every thought fabricated by the brain is made from. It is trying to stop or edit them that is of the ego because doing so they seem to turn into something that makes a difference. Thus separation is established as real, and since the ego, which thrives from separation, it loves those who treat thoughts as if they are something and not just a binary code of nothing.


As no belief can be upheld without an effort, you undo the belief in being a basic as well as a special self by not making an effort to make nothing appear as if it is something. Thus there does not appear to be something hiding you are in a constant fire of enlightenment, that you at first either seem to see, hear, feel or taste with your inner senses, which have nothing to with how you see, hear, feel or taste with the outer senses. Read more about that here.

But as the enlightenment of that which is one cannot be experienced, since that requires more than one, this experience only last a few seconds until the last bit of what you believe to be is undone, so that there is nobody to experience the nothingness of you spiralling through a black hole and graciously descent into the formlessness of oneness. See The ins and outs of a black hole.

In other words, the enlightenment of that which is one is the end of a world where there seems to be more than one. But since there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless, the enlightenment of that which is one is not the end of anything except the belief, that there is more than that which is one.

If ending this belief seems fearful, you will probably hold onto anything that seems to confirm, there is more than one. No worries. With the exception of the enlightenment of that which is one the duality hacks works over time, and in the process of undoing the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, you actually become so indifferent to a world where there seems to be more than one that you are able to enjoy it.

n a very gently way changes your perception of the world so that over time its apparent differences do not seem to make a difference. In the process of having the belief in someone definitive undone while having fun appears to be that.

Read on in hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing about how to ignite a take-off to the empty breath and thus become indifferent to differences.
