Sh BM4 + The purpose of the duality hacks is not to heal the body but the belief that there is someone in it [draft]

Wishing to escape the world of duality reinforces the belief, that you are there. Fortunately, you are not there, nor anywhere else, because only in duality can you appear to be somewhere, and there is no duality since non-duality is formless and therefore endless. In other words, there is nothing to escape than the belief, that you are somewhere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you drive a car, you do not try to change how its engine or works or looks. You just use the wheel, gear, gas and brake pedal, and trust the engine to take care of the rest by itself.

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 the unfortunate belief of a body-mind connection on 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 into weird positions, consuming a special diet 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.

The purpose of the duality hacks is not to heal the body. That it, in most cases, does itself, when it free from your domination of it, which it is, the less you believe to be the ruler of anything.

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 as long as it is connected with the engine and you supply it with water and gasoline, the body works great as long as the biological system is connected with the brain and you provide it with water and food, brush its teeth, wash it and sometimes take it for a ride.

There may, of course, be cases where particular parts of the body ask for special treatment. Perhaps they need to be massaged, or there is an inner organ that requires special care from professional healthcare services.

Projecting unpleasant feelings on the body and expecting them the problems they cause there to go away when the body is improved 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.*

Most often, however, the body just wants to say, that it has no way of dealing with the feelings you hide from your awareness by dumping them in obscure parts of it. The body is a physical thing and made to deal with physicality only, so unless you bring the unwanted feelings back into your emotional awareness and deal with them there, they will mess up the body.

There is no extraordinary purpose for appearing to be or have a self, just like there is no purpose of pretending to be someone in a video game except for having fun pretending to be what you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The special self uses much energy to suppress those thoughts and feelings judged as negative or politically incorrect. This it deems to be necessary for preserving what it believes to be or will become when it lives in the now, come from the heart or whatnot. The basic self, on the other hand, has no need to appear in a special way and therefore no need to suppress something judged as wrong.

Especially, because it knows that negativity is just as important as positivity. If not for the combination of the negative and positive pole in an electric wire, for example, no energy would come out of it. Read more about that here.

The special self dissociates itself from bad experiences by justifying them with the world so that it can perceive itself to be good. But though this diversion makes tension disappear from its awareness as if it is part of itself, it remains hidden in obscure parts of its body. Read more about that here.

It may be hidden there many years but sooner or later the suppressed energy causes parts of the body to dysfunction. Traditional medicine, nutritional supplements or massage may seem to help for a while because they may be able to relieve the symptom or move it, but the cause of it is not healed as it is not physical but mental. The unpleasantness that has been dumped in the body need to be taken back to the mental sphere where it was deemed to be unwanted because only there can the judgment be changed.*

This is not to say, that traditional medicine, nutritional supplements or massage, for example, should be avoided. The use of it can be a great way to relieve the symptoms, so you do not feel weighed down by them and therefore have the energy to face the problem where it is made.

In fact, nothing needs to be avoided. Restrictions do not bring relief but frustration. And then again, being restrictive is not a problem, because if the frustration that it entails is perceived as it is, its uncontrolled energy will ignite a take-off to the empty breath in which there is nobody to perceiving anything as a problem. See hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

If your phone is out-of-order and it seems to make you upset, having the phone fixed may appear to address the anger as well. But the phone has neither the power to make you angry or heal you. So even though the anger has disappeared from your awareness, it will return when something else triggers it, unless you deal with the phone and your fury separately, so both of the problems can be corrected on their own terms.

If physical symptoms of illness trigger memories of endangerment and those two elements are combined so that the physical symptoms are perceived to cause a threat, a fusion of physical and mental reality seems to have been established. The resulting psychosomatic disorder cannot be healed by the biological system of the body, because it is made to deal with physicality only. And as the mental sphere has no sense of physicality, the use of mental powers does not heal the body but mess it further up.*

The paradox in trying to heal a psychosomatic disorder is that it reinforces the fear of the physical symptoms and thus the psychosomatic disorder.*

If the experience of the physical symptom, on the other hand, is not combined with the memories of endangerment triggered by it, the symptom remains physical and the memories mental. The biological system, therefore, is free to deal with the physical symptom and leave the memories of danger to be dealt with in the mental sphere.

When the condition of the body is not perceived to have been caused by emotional or mental problems, they do not seem to attest to the existence of the body and vice versa. Just like the world in a movie is not experienced as real, if the emotions it seems to provoke are not perceived to have been caused by it.

Just like a strawn is built to deal with fluid and not solid things, the body is made to deal with physicality and not emotions or mental stuff. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To sum it up: When you appear to be sick and your concern about the physical symptom triggers a past sense of danger, that you interpret as caused by the present physical symptom, you develop a psychosomatic disorder. But since body and mind cannot be fused, no cure will work before the immaterial feeling is disentangled from the material symptom so each of the problems can be dealt with on their own term.*

In a situation where you perceive yourself to be on top of it and to know what is going on, try for a moment to perceive that you do not know what is going on. Then feel which one of the perceptions have a relaxing effect on your body.

This differentiation occurs by itself when you are the basic self because it relates to the stream of thoughts coming from the brain as is and not as it should be according to mental concepts of socialism, capitalism or any other ism, including spirituality. And since you come back from a state of not-knowing as a basic self and since all the duality hacks bring about this state that wipes your slate clean, all you need to disentangle material and mental problems is to go on reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings because doing so the duality hacks apply themselves.

In hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone, for example, you can read how the empty breath immediately takes you to a state of not-knowing. If you want to learn that right away, skip reading this article and go straight to hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

And if you want to know what happens if you do not leave a state of not-knowing but remain there  for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, go to hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one and hack #5-7.3 The inner senses, enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

The two last hacks are about the enlightenment of that which is one, which does not lead to anything. In fact, it takes away everything, so there does not appear to be something hiding, there never was and never will be more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

When the experience of something, regardless it seems to be physical, spiritual or immaterial like in a dream, is not perceived to be real, the brains rendering of you as someone in the experienced world is bypassed and the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome.

Alexius uses no techniques for being connected with the empty breath or having glimpses of enlightenment. It happens by itself. He does not know why, but when it is possible for him, he is convinced it is for you too. And that the duality hacks will take away what you do not need for that. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The above is not meant to imply, there are certain phases you need to go through to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. Alexius went straight to the enlightenment of that which is one. Yet he bounced back to the experience of being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one before he reached the point of no return. See The ins and outs of a black hole or Nothing can stop you on Highway One except your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

In the experience of being someone in a tangible world he changes between being the basic self, the special self and in a state of not-knowing. In the latter, he has glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, which you can read about in hack #5-7.2 The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can.

Alexius uses no techniques for this himself. Yet he presents some techniques that can facilitate that. See the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment.

Being someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, he knows there is no more that which is one. So he is not longing to ´return to´ the formlessness of oneness but enjoys pretending to be what and where he is not – just like within the context of where he pretends to be he sometimes has fun pretending to be somebody in the virtual world of a game. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

In the enlightenment of that which is one, there are no more  experiences of a world where there seems to be more than one. Nor are there any memories of them because to remember something requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

When he has had his fun doing that, he intends to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one with no intention of returning to the consciousness of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

In the hack No Body-Mind Connection´ that you can find in Extra Duality Hacks, you can read more about psychosomatic disorders being caused by the common belief that you, and not the brain, is the master of the body. In the below articles, that are part of hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one, you can read how to unlearn that belief.

NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one, which is still in the process of being written.
