(POOL)+ That which is you is not made of anything as that requires more than one [draft]

When the brain supplies you with thoughts of fury, and you give it your best shot to perceive yourself as angry, you cannot help but feel happy. The same applies to any other so-called negative. That is as long as you do not justify a feeling with the world because doing so, you distance yourself from it and therefore also the joy of exploring it. Hence you do not feel happy but lost.

The brain has implanted a consciousness in the self it has fabricated, so the self can be aware of itself as someone in the experiences created by the brain by continually perceiving them in a way so they appear to be tangible and the self thus to be substantial. When the perception does not relate to the experiences of the brain as they are but how they ought to be according to speculative concepts of coming from the heart, for example, the self has disassociated itself from the brain and thus itself, because what and where it appears to be is a product of the brain. Consequently, it is dissatisfied with it itself.

The special self started off as a rebellion against being governed by the brain, but since what and where it experiences to be is fabricated and stored in the brain, it is the brain. Thus its perceived independence is a disassociation from itself, which every act it performs deepen because it goes on rebellion against being governed when it tries to follow the ideas perceived to be its own. That is why dieting, meditation or whatever it does is bound to fail.

There is nothing magic about following the GPS instructions when driving a car, nor of following the instructions of the brain when residing in a body. It is as easy as pie when one´s perception is in sync with the instructions, that the brain makes to make the self feel assured.

That being said, Alexius only knows about GPS from the movies because he never drives a car and hardly ever uses his smartphone, which should not be understood to something one should avoid. But that in his case, he is programmed to only depend on the instructions of the brain without the help of a smartphone.

The brain is in charge of every experience we seem to have, but the consciousness that it has built into us is free to interpret them in another way than the brain has set it up. In other words, when Alexius for some time was into gadgets and had to have the latest, it was because he was scripted to do so by the brain. But it was his consciousness that interpreted it in such a way that he perceived himself to be special. Read more about the basic self of Alexis here.

But since it is quite complicated to uphold this perception, his consciousness did not bother to do so for very long. Maybe most of all because you cannot be special without being exclusive, and it feels so much better to be inclusive. Read more about that in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

The basic self can be compared to a cat. It does not go to Pilates at a specific hour to exercise but does stretch out when it is its biological system encourages it to do so. Nor does it attends special seminars to learn who it is or how to transform itself because there is no ´I´ with a need to be anything else than a cat. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The special self often makes up stories in which love is the solution to what it judges to be wrong in others. Yet it does not seem very lovingly judging others, nor being on a mission to change them.

Facebook wants to trap you into believing you have friends, who want you to come back to see their messages and likes. But you have no friends because it takes more than one to have a friend, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

A world where there seems to be more than one is, therefore, an illusion, and so is loneliness.

But in the context of believing it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, you have one friend, namely the brain. It likes everything you experience to do and say because it has fabricated all it.

It may not like, however, if you perceive the experiences in such a way, that you appear to be the one making them. Then, on the other hand, it does not really care, because the thoughts you seek out to build this perception does not change anything, except that they prevent you from feeling the happiness which comes from having a perception that relates the experiences fabricated by the brain as they are.

From the pool of thoughts, the brain has made to be used for the perception of the experiences it continuously renders (read more about that here), the special self seeks out those that it assumes can be used to build a perception that is different from the one automatically generated by the brain. The special self does not want a perception of itself as an ordinary but a unique and self-assured being that can transform itself. But as the thoughts it has sought out seems to have a life of its own, it always doubts what it is and what to do. Behind the confident face, the special self, therefore, fears every step it takes.

But if the automatically generated perceptions are not edited, so they seem to establish the brain as a servant of you, the brain remains the master wherefore there is nothing to doubt. Being in sync with its set up is like navigating a well-designed website. There is no doubt where to click.

When the special self perceives somebody to be stupid, it is most likely meant to condemn them. When the basic self, on the other hand, has the same perception, it is not to condemn somebody but to avoid a relationship that the brain instructs you to avoid. In other words, it is a way to respect the signals of the brain. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

No matter what you experience to be in a dream, physical spiritual or whatnot, and where you appear to go, it is not so, because you are not there. And neither are those you experience to meet. Nothing you experience to happen in a dream ever happened. It is all make-believe.

The same applies to the experience of being someone definitive separated from like-minded beings in a tangible world, no matter how close you experience to get to others and how much you change the world, live in the now, realise or become. Also, like in a dream, the course of it is beyond your control.

But unlike a dream, that a dreamer appears to have, no one is having or making the fantasy of being someone definitive, because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to have a fantasy.

So regardless you experience to come from the heart or to be transformed, you are not coming from anything but nothing and that is also what you are transformed into. In other words, what you experience to be is nothing disguised as something when the apparently different experiences are perceived to make a difference.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The choices the special self claims to make are generally made in retrospect when it invents a perception of the past events where it seemed to have been in charge of itself. This self-deception can be compared to when a dream is over, and you interpret what you remember, so it seems to establish you to be this and that, although you were not in the dream but in your bed.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since the brain is in charge of everything in a world where there seems to be more than one – read more about that here – the basic self never has to make up its mind. The same applies to special self, but it wants to manifest itself as independent, so it has to make it look like it makes up its own mind by making up stories of the past, that seems to prove, it makes choices of its own.

But when you believe you make choices yourself, you distance yourself further from that which is you because it is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to choose something.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To believe you are someone substantial made out of flesh and bones because you experience to be in a tangible world is just as weird as to think you are someone in a dream because you experience to be there. Just like it would be foolish to believe, you are a car made out of plastic when you play a game like Monopoly. You are not in a dream, a game or anywhere else. That which is you is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to be anywhere.

The purpose of consciousness is to separate and thus to make it appear as if there is more than that which is one.

For the same reason, that which is you is not made of anything, nor has it ever been created as that requires more than one. So whatever you believe to be made of is an illusion. And so is being conscious of something. This is why, it is not-knowing what and where you are, that bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.*

If you believe to be something you are not, there is doubt it and search for clarity. But that which is you is not capable of searching since it is that which is one and searching requires more than one. So does having doubts. Acknowledging that, there is no one having doubts.

The feelings continually popping up in the basic self concerning its experience of being someone definitive in a world defined by time and space gives it a continuous sense of being entertained. This is not so for the special self because it wants to hold onto specific feelings and extend them through music, candle lights, dinners with red wine and whatnot to escape those feelings it does not like.

But since everything in a world of duality comes in pairs, love and hate for example, you cannot just capture and extend a specific feeling. You will also get its counterpart. This, the special self at first thinks it can resolve by purifying the feelings it wants to keep, so it is not ordinary but pure love that it feels, for example. And instead of having everyday experiences, it imagines having spiritual experiences.

Any experience, regardless it appears to be spiritual or mundane, is unreal and so is the one believing to have it, because it takes more than one to experience something, and there is no more than that which is one.

But as these speculative states of mind are difficult to attain, the special self may try to go back to basic instead. Not to the basic self though, but a theoretical concept of a real self whose experiences are authentic and direct. But there is no self at all. Any kind of self is a construction of empty thoughts compiled to make nothing look like something – read more about that here.

That you can rid off feelings by hiding them in the body or get them out of your system by expressing them is of course an illusion, because there is nothing inside or outside of what you appear to be. Hence there is nothing to get rid off except the belief that there is something.

Just like a dream is made by nobody and with nobody in it, the self and its maker are made from out of from nothing in such a way that you believe the experience of it is real. Thus the idea of an authentic self is just a sophisticated way to establish what and where you experience to be is genuine and not an illusion.

The truth does not expect to be followed since it is that which is one, and it takes more than one to follow something. For the same reason, it cannot be sold or bought, taught or learned, unless you believe there is more than one. But since that is an illusion, what is sold or bought, taught or learned is nothing exaggerated into something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

We did not go from nothing to be something. Just like within the apparent reality of something, we never go from that to the immaterial world of a dream, but remain in our bed. In other words, even though we experience to be somebody in a world of something, it is make-believe. In reality, we remain as nothing and the big bang never happened. That is why all attempts to explain it is gibberish.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Not perceiving thoughts and the feelings accompanying them to be something, you have nothing to live up to. Hence you can enjoy being on your own – like when having a dream. You experience to someone going here and there. But you are going nowhere and meeting nobody because you are not there. It is a fantasy you have on your own of a world where there seems to be more than one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is nothing outside of that which is one as it is formless and therefore endless. Thus the appearance of you in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion. This does not mean that you are inside that which is one because, without an outside, there is no inside. Thus what you believe to be, does not exist.

Having this belief undone does not reveal your true existence because it takes more than one to exist as a physical as well as a spiritual being, and there is no more than that which is one. Nor does it reveal the latter, since that also takes more than one. It is rather that the belief, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, does not appear to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Sooner or later what you believe to be is bound to vanish. No worries. It is only the belief that disappears. Not that which is you. It is no different from that which is one, and as it takes more than one to vanish, it never ends. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The special self always feels something is missing in the present moment and looks forward to finding it afterwards.

The basic self does not get afterwards, neither before. Not because it lives in the now. It does not understand that either. All it gets is the flow of thoughts that come from the brain. And as that results in happiness now, before and afterwards, it never feels anything is missing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self is connected with its maker, the brain, that is no different from what it has made. And as it produces every experience that the basic self has, the two of them is no different from the experience. The experience of being someone in a tangible world is, therefore, a fantasy that ends with the brain.

And as the fantasy was made from out of nothing, the basic self returns to the nothingness from where it was conceived.

Unlike the special self, the basic one has not perceived itself as independent of the fantasy but a pawn of it, so it happily goes back to nothing, where there is not something to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In a world where there seems to be more than one, you always have to choose something to confirm that there is more than one. If you, on the other hand, refrain from choosing anything, you accept that which cannot be selected, namely that which is one. This may be easier if you decide to be the basic self because it entails so much happiness that you probably forget to choose.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you have chosen to believe you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you should honour that choice by giving it your best shot. If being detached from it, you cannot undo it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As it requires more than one to be someone, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless, you are neither the basic or special self or any other kind of self that can be transformed into something else because what and where you believe to be is nothing.

And so is Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. They, like anything else you are conscious of, are nothing disguised as something. Hence no explanation in them about you in a world where there seems to be more than one is adequate.

In fact, Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not able to explain anything at all because more than one is needed to do so. As this also goes for pointing to something, Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teaching do not point to that which is one, but to the belief that seems to hide it, namely the idea that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. This belief, the duality hacks make it possible to fully enjoy while having it undone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You are not real if you are aware of something because it involves more than one to be conscious about anything, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Life is that which is one, and since it requires more than one to be defined, it is formless and, therefore, without beginning and end. And as it also requires more than one to read this, you are not reading it unless you believe there is more than that which is one and try to confirm it by imagining what this means.

But it means nothing because that calls for more than one. And so does to believe or image something so what and where you believe to be is nothing.
