BM The fake link between immateriality and materiality, Part 1 [DRAFT]

When the sense of the physical domain is not mixed with feelings from the psychological sphere, the body seems lighter, and so does feeling angry or whatnot. Furthermore, emotions are fleeting. It is like watching a movie where the frightening scenes are just as entertaining as the merry ones. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Thanks for passing by. Alexius is still in the process of exploring how to communicate this hack. Hence, you might be better off reading another one. But you are, of course, welcome to take your chances.

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings in a particular order. But in the case of hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, it is advisable to have read hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one. It spells out the basic and the special self. You may also benefit from reading about the perception ´it is what it is,´ which establishes that you are tuned into the brain’s script, wherefore you feel satisfied. See hack #4.2 Being a self or no-self.

The assumed link between a problem in the psyche and the body, or vice versa, is a fata morgana. Materiality and immateriality do not mix. Hence there is no psychosomatic disorder to heal but physical and psychological issues that must be dealt with in a material and immaterial way. This is a process over time. But it can be shortened by perceiving your opinion about the psychosomatic disorder as ´it is what it is

The different ways to undo the belief in a body-mind connection we explore in this hack. But as always, in the case of a world where there seems to be more than one, it could have been covered more thoroughly. However, the purpose of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not to present a complete explanation of how and why we appear to be somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one because we are not there or anywhere else, as it takes more than one to be somewhere, and there is no more than that which is one.

To turn the basic self into a special one, everything judged as embarrassing you exclude from the perception of yourself. The banned thoughts and feelings you hide from the awareness by combining them with physical feelings coming from weak or deformed parts of the body. Hence psychological feelings in the future are experienced as physical sensations. So when a suppressed psychological issue is triggered, you are not aware of it because you think your experience is physical.

No matter what medicine you take or diet you follow to stop the discomfort in the body, an abstract feeling of pain remains, namely the psychological issue hidden in the physical experience of the body. This pain comes from the psyche, and it does not go away before it is dealt with in an immaterial way.

There is no authentic self to return to because any self is an illusion constructed from nothing. No matter what you appear to be, it only seems to be something because thoughts, like a binary code of nothing, are put together so that they seem to attest to someone substantial is having an experience of being in a tangible world.

Those who think their body should be transformed and become more spiritual needs to be more physical. The body is solely material. Hence it cannot be mixed with something immaterial. Consequently, the body-mind connection is a fantasy.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The body is not related to the clothes it uses. Likewise, you are not connected with the body, although you believe in using it. It is governed by the brain, and so are you.

Imagining that the body is a product of how you perceive the world or of something spiritual is like thinking that there is a connection between the body and the clothes that follow it where it goes. The clothes have no love or anything else to give the body and vice versa. The clothes and the body are not communicating with each other at all.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self is constantly under enormous pressure because it fights being governed by the brain by searching for thoughts that it can use to compose a perception of its experiences, proving it is in control.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The body, like everything else experienced, is a construction of thoughts. Nevertheless, it has been made to interact with structures that, just like itself, appear to be material. That is why it interprets attempts to integrate it with non-physical feelings and ideas of spirituality as an attack that it has to defend itself against.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To think that you can hide unpleasant feelings in the body is like thinking, you can hide them in a wall. Emotions are immaterial, so it is not possible to bury them in something that is material. It is, however, possible to believe this can be done. And if you do that, you will look at the body or wall as if there are hidden problems in it, even though they consist of nothing but material elements, and the hidden issues are in your perception of them.

Non-physical feelings are fleeting, so if you want to make them last, you must combine them with something more lasting, like physical feelings. Immateriality and materiality, however, do not mix, so the combination of them is purely speculative. By the way, this is convenient in making a non-physical feeling like love go on because speculations seem to be never-ending. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The nature of non-physical feelings are fleeting, so if you experience a specific one to be sticky, it is not the work of theirs but of yours. It is you who does not want it to pass. For some reason, you need to make it last. It can be love, hate or any other feeling that seem to return again and again. You achieve this by combining the feeling you want to go on with a part of the body.

If it is a specific love you want to last, you combine it with a pleasant physical feeling in the heart, for example. And if it is a particular feeling of hate, you connect with pain in the chest. However, those connection are not possible because feelings are abstract, and the body is concrete. Nevertheless, it is possible to make them mentally so that every time you feel a specific kind of love, you think you feel something in the heart. And every time you feel hate towards someone, you prolong it by feeling something weird in the chest.

The unfortunate result of this is that you have a problem in the chest diagnosed as a psychosomatic disorder. But there is nothing immaterial in the chest to solve, only something material. Hence your foolish idea of a body-mind connection has created a problem that cannot be addressed before you split it into a material and immaterial one so you can deal with each one on its own term. In this case, why do you have a need to prolong a specific feeling of love, and is there something wrong in the heart physically speaking.

Most people do not want to do this. They want to keep their imagined union of immaterial and material issues alive because then they can talk as they have a feeling they do not have. Should it be questioned that they have it, they can refer to the bodily symptoms, which can be explained by the emotions.

Hardly anyone wants to escape this hell where neither the material nor immaterial sphere works well. On the contrary, they love talking about body-mind connection because that makes it look like they are in charge. But you are neither in control of the body or the mind. Just like the wind moves on its own accord, so do they. And just like it is exciting to watch the wind when you are safely inside, it is entertaining to pay attention to the body and the mind when you stay out of their way.

Should you want to undo the imagined combination of immateriality and materiality, a willingness to not remember what and where you are is all that is required to be nobody and thus have no need for lasting feelings that can define you as someone definitive. Consequently, you can enjoy their fleeting nature and how the body’s biological system automatically deals with its physical problems.

Psychologically concepts of how to attain physical wellness do not work because immateriality is unable to experience form. Just like a bikini that follows the movements of a body has no way of experiencing it. Although the bikini and the body seem to be closely related, they function on each their own term.

For years there has been an unhealthy idea about uniting body, mind and soul with you as the master of the combination. This approach has done much harm to the body. First of all, you are not the master of any appearance, whether material, immaterial or spiritual – only the perception of it. Secondly, the body is a physical unit built to deal with physical matters and not mental, emotional or metaphysical ones. Like the digital media where you are reading, this is made to deal with the digital world and not the physical one.

In other words, you cannot combine anything immaterial with the body. However, you can imagine combining an immaterial feeling with a material one and perceiving the combination to be physical. This is, actually, how you exclude what you do not like about yourself from your awareness so you can appear to be more important. Your psychological problem is combined with how you feel a vulnerable part of the body, so it seems to be hidden inside it.

The vulnerable part of the body feels unfordable with this combo because it does not understand the psychological part. Actually, it considers it to be an intruder, so it starts to fight it. But since it does not know where it is, it shoots off here and there. Thus you end up with psychosomatic disorders that cannot be healed before the psychological issues are removed from the physical ones, and they can be dealt with on each their own term.

This removal of the psychological part of the pain experienced to come from the vulnerable part of the body occurs naturally when you are willing to feel the psychological problem where it was made, namely in the immaterial sphere, without analysing or editing it. Practically speaking, it is done by feeling the pain where it seems to come from in the body. However, not by perceiving it to be physical but that ´it is what it is.´*

This may seem at first as if you are going insane or being tortured. No worries, as long as you feel it as it is and do not prevent yourself from crying or screaming, for example, by hiding it in the body again, no feeling will remain for long because, unless they are perceived to be in the body, their nature is to pass on.

The body that has been set free from the apparent attack of immaterial issues starts to breathe freely and thus to heal its physical problem just like it was made to do. Should it need assistance from a health care professional, it will let you know.

What we perceive to be the weaknesses of our personality is projected onto the way we feel the vulnerable parts of the body, such as the stomach. Therefore, as our perceived flaws are excluded from the consciousness of what we are, we seem to have improved ourselves.

Later, when there is a problem in the stomach caused by a physical irregularity, you associate how you feel it with the old sense of something wrong in your personality that you once disassociated yourself from by projecting it there. Since this combination seems to establish something immaterial has caused a material problem, you conclude the psychological and physical domain is connected.

But there is no connection. The problem in the stomach is material, and the perceived obstacle in the personality is immaterial. Materiality and immateriality do not blend except in fantasy. In other words, nothing in a body is caused by emotional or psychological states.

To believe that is as crazy as to believe an old man can’t fly in the sky on a sleigh driven by reindeers and crawl down the chimney with presents to all the good children in the world. The sledge is too heavy to ever set off. Even if it did, the old man is too fat to crawl down the chimneys, and he would never be able to crawl down to them all in one night.

Like in science, there is no absolute truth in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Each metaphor is just adding to others in one direction or another to expose that all ways are fake because it takes more than one to be on a path to somewhere, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. For the same reason, Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, contrary to science, do not claim to gather facts that can establish there is nothing but that which is one. Nor do they point to oneness. Instead, they point to the belief that seems to hide it, namely that an explosion called the big bang made something out of nothing. To think that something which does not exist can explode and become something that exists is as crazy as believing an old man with a white beard has created the world. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You will never find anything physical in the digital world. It is solely digital. Likewise, you will never find something physical in the psychological sphere or vice versa. That is why the concept of a body-mind connection is a scam.

When the digital world is combined with the physical one, the fusion generally is experienced as if it is physical when you have a virtual reality headset mounted on the head. But this experience, like any other, is an illusion.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There are physical and psychological feelings plus a feeling of emptiness, which is pure bliss (see hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone. But there are no spiritual feelings because spirituality is that which is one, and it takes more than one to feel something. Since oneness is formless and therefore endless, there are no feelings unless you believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are written within the context of that belief in which hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough takes a closer look at the combination of physical and psychological feelings. That combo brings about a psychosomatic disorder, which feels like being in a cage made of grievances, fear and anxiety as long as it is kept together. But when broken, physical and psychological feelings in each their own way results in joy.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you pinch yourself in the arm, for example, you feel something physical. Concluding that this means you are alive, you combine the physical sensation with a mental statement to make it tangible and thus as proof of your existence. But that which is real needs not to be validated. Actually, its existence cannot be proved because it is that which is one, and it takes more than one to authenticate anything. In other words, when something can be verified, it is not real. That is why there is a need to prove it is real.

NOTES:

 

If it seems complicated to find out what is what, you just apply one or more of the duality hacks to tell you that. Do not expect an answer, though, because, in their eyes, there is nothing to solve other than seeing that and thus be in the bliss of nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.
