The duality hacks are not meant to heal the body, but the sick belief that there is someone in it [DRAFT]

The article is, like the others in hack #4.3 The unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection, about the disturbances the belief in a body-mind connection seems to cause in the body. When you stop inflicting it with mental ideas of wellness, the biological system is set free to heal the body. It is recommendable to have read hack #4.2 The brain´s script and how to perceive it to feel happy about the perception ´it is what it is

To distract yourself from experiencing anger as an emotion in you, it is excluded from your awareness by dumping it in the body’s darkness – at least, this is how a psychologist explains it. But immaterial issues cannot be hidden in something material. So what really happened when you, according to a psychologist, dumped the psychological pain in the body is that you combined it with the way you feel an excruciating part of your body, such as a vulnerable spot in the back.

When you once have concluded your anxiety is caused by physical pain, you by reflex look for the same connection every time you are worried about something. Thus you automatically search the body for a flaw in which some kind of pain can be detected to explain you feel worried. That is until you do not try to get rid of your worries but perceive them as ´it is what it is´ because that reveals they are twofold. Hence there is nothing, in particular, to worry about.

So since the irritation coming from the psychological problem is experienced to be the same as the discomfort coming from a physical issue in the back, the psychological problem seems to have disappeared. That is why you, hereafter, automatically combine an immaterial problem with a material one to make it go away.

The obsession with the look and performance you expect from the body causes much trouble. If you want to be free from that, the belief that you are someone in a body must be undone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

However, this fusion is an illusion because a psychological issue cannot be combined with a physical one. Thus, its perceived result, namely a psychosomatic disorder, is impossible to heal before seen as a psychological and physical problem. When there is a sense of anxiety for something weird and diffused, you are in touch with the combo’s psychological part. In contrast, the physical problem is experienced to be more straightforward and matter-of-fact.

Do not try to analyse or understand those two feelings. Instead, start off by experiencing your emotional issue unedited and then perceive your reaction to it as ´it is what it is.´ This takes the edge of the psychological problem, so there is nothing unpleasant to hide by combining it with the experience of a physical issue.

Therefore, since the body does not feel attacked by your emotions, it has no need to defend itself by attacking this and that. Instead, it uses its energy on fixing its physical problems. It should be added that the function of the duality hacks is not to heal the body but the sick belief that someone is in it. That is like believing there is someone in a game you play. It is just something you imagine to make it more entertaining.

But even though the duality hacks ´only´ heal the belief that you are someone in a body, having that belief undone, ever so slightly, set you free to deal with physical problems on their terms. Like you support a self-driving car with electricity and once in a while send it to the garage for a checkup. In other words, regarding an imagined physical/psychological combo, you may call for professional assistance to solve the material part of it.

In the case of Alexius, he uses nootropics to assist the brain and Blackroll and Far Infrared Heating Pads from UTK Technology in supporting his body’s healing. This is not to say you should do the same. Bodies are different, so your body may ask for something else. If in doubt, consult a health care professional.

It does not rain because you feel sad, nor does the rain has the power to make you feel bad. That is unless you choose to perceive such a course and effect. Likewise, the body cannot make you feel sad, nor does feeling sad makes the body terrible unless you imagine such a connection. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you see a scary movie, it is experienced to be real because it feels like the fear manifests in the body. The film, however, does not have the ability to scare you and what you feel in the body is purely physical. It is not caused by the events in the movie but by because you perceive them to be frghtening.

You perceived them like because you are conditioned to interpret certain things to be scary. And to make it real that this is what you feel, you project the idea on a body part that already is tense and seems to get tenser when you give it your attention. Thus it feels as if it is the movie that makes you scared.

Sometimes, it goes the other way around. You have a stomach ache, but it does add meaning to your life. So you imagine, the pain is caused by a psychological fissue rom your past. Unfortunately, this perceived combination results in a psychosomatic disorder that is incurable, especially because the psychological part of it most likely is made up. Hence there is nothing to heal but the belief that there is someone who can condition itself to feel this.

To prevent feelings in the body from being processed by the brain, part of the body is desensitised by blending the perception of it with mental ideas. If this benumbing of the body is done in the upper part of the neck, the flow between the body and the brain is cut off. Thus you can decide what the body says and process it as if there is a body-mind connection.

But there is no such combination. On the contrary, the body is material and sees immaterial ideas as an attack on its integrity. Thus, it fights them by continually keeping the shoulders backwards or forward to hold the body in a mode of attack or defence. On top of that, it might lock the hips and/or the loin to balance the top of the body’s issues with others in the lower part.

Whatever way it started, you hold onto it because these tensions disrupt the natural flow of communication between the body and the brain, so you can bypass the biological system and impose the body with your mental ideas of wellness.

Being in the natural state of happiness does not mean that apparently negative things do not happen. You might get wet by the rain, for example, but since you perceive your reaction to this experience as ´it is what it is,´ your response makes it just as entertaining to be wet as not.

In this way, the body is used to establish your perception of being an independent being in charge of itself, even though you do not know who you are and thus neither what you are doing. The body suffers from this, and so do you because believing to be in control, you are out of sync with your nature, which is to serve the brain – just like a self-driving car drives where The Cloud tells it to go.

You are nothing without the brain, except in your own imagination of being someone who lives life in its own way and pace. But this idea does not change anything other than your perception is not in alignment with the brain, so you do not see the happiness the brain reserves for its creations.

It may, at first, seem dangerous not having the body in a position of defence or attack. But since the basic self perceives everything as ´it is what it is,´ it is in sync with the brain and thus continiously being injected with shots of happiness by it. Consequently, any kind of feeling, whether seen as positive or negative, is amusing.

Regarding the duality hacks, it does not really matter how you have mistreated your body to uphold a perception of being the master of it. The hacks bring you into a state of not-knowing in which the slate is wiped clean, so when you return to the consciousness of being someone, you are the basic self. And since it perceives every reaction, it has as ´it is what it is,´ it is in sync with the brain, and, therefore, in the happiness that comes from being aligned with its maker.

At least, until something appears so special that it forget to perceive the appeal, it feels, as ´it is what it is But, nevertheless, if it does not know why and its perception, therefore, is ´dunno what it is,´ it is in a state of not-knowing from where it again returns as a basic and thus a happy self. Hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one has a fundamental introduction to the basic and special self.

The biological system of the body is used by the brain to uphold it, so if the body bothers you, it is in most cases best to let nature take its course because if you try to solve the problem in the body with mental ideas of balance, for example, you fuck up the ability of the body to take care of itself. The basic self would never do this.

But the special self always thinks it knows better, so it forces the body to do extreme yoga exercises, heavy weight lifting, restricting diets, tantra sex, or other mental concepts of wellness that makes the body appear to be its instrument. The price is a body that suffers, but since the primary concern of the special self is its appearance, it gladly pays the price.

As you and your healing ideas mess up the natural flow between the body and the brain, the latter cannot heal the damage you inflict on the body – especially since the body is made to deal with physical problems and not mental ones. Hence you need to set the body free from your domain so the flow between the body and the brain can be reestablished.

This does not mean that you become redundant. Maybe you need to call a professional physician. The body will let you know.

Hoping to escape the world of duality reinforces the belief that you are there because it takes more than one to escape anything. But you are not in such a world, nor anywhere else, because only in duality can you be somewhere. And there is no duality since non-duality is formless and therefore endless. Hence there is nothing to escape other than the belief that you are somewhere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you drive a car, you do not try to change how its engine works or looks. Instead, you use the wheel, gear, gas and brake pedal and trust the machine to do what it is supposed to.

You may not feel and see the body as it is, but instead, a vision of what it will feel and look like in the future when you have succeeded in imposing your ideas of perfection upon it.

But moving around in a body, you try to bypass its biological system so you can pump up the appearance of the body by forcing it to lift a lot, consuming a special diet, sitting in weird positions to become spiritual, and other things that restrict it and make it impossible for its biological system to connect with the brain, which, therefore, cannot take care of it.

When you do not inflicy the body with your ideas of mindfullness and wellnes, it is perfectly able of taking of itself as a physical entity.

The application of one or more of the duality hacks reestablishes this connection. Not by healing the body, though, but the foolish belief that it is part of you. Hence it becomes like a coat you are wearing or a car you are driving. And just like a car works fine when connected with the engine and you supply it with water and gasoline, the body works as it should when combined with the brain, and you provide it with water and food, keep it clean and sometimes take it for a ride.

There may, of course, cases where particular parts of the body ask for special treatment. For example, perhaps they need to be massaged, or there is an inner organ that requires special care by professional healthcare services. If such help is needed, the body asks for it.

Projecting unpleasant feelings onto the body and expecting them go away when the body is fixed is like projecting feelings onto your smartphone and expecting them to go away when the phone is repaired. Just like feelings cannot be mixed with the mechanical parts of a smartphone, they do not mix with the physical nature of the body. In other words, no matter what you project your unpleasant feelings onto, they remain in the psychological pshere. Hence it is there they must be dealt with.

But most often, the body just wants to say that it has no way of dealing with the feelings you hide from your awareness by imagining to dump them in obscure parts of it. The body is a physical entity made to deal with physicality only, so it cannot be combined with anything non-physical. Therefore, until you stop projecting unwanted feelings onto the body, you will perceive it to be fucked up.

The tension in the body is often caused by your attempt to control it through mental concepts. The body fights back in different ways, maybe with a blockage in the forehead that it extends to the rest of the body, so it seems to become an armour that can resist your attacks on it.

The body does not want to be used as a means to manifest mental ideas of being balanced, centred or connected with higher consciousness, so it fights your abuse of it by tightening itself.

Therefore, the tensions in the body can only be healed when you withdraw your mental assault on the body. This is done by perceiving your reaction to the violation of the body as ´it is what it is´. Since that takes the power of your misguidance, you cannot help but laugh. You may also cry. But that is how it should be, as everything in a world of duality comes in pairs.

This makes you feel complete but maybe also silly because you are not pushing the body to the extremes anymore to feel young and more unique. But then again, since everything comes in pairs, silliness is complemented with wisdom. Thus you feel insightful even though you are not unique.
