What and where you believe to be is the brain

What and where we experience in being consist of nothing but mechanical parts arranged, like ones and zeros in a stream of binary code, to move in alignment with the instructions it gets from the brain based on the signals it claims to receive from the sensors of the body. When our perception is in sync with those instructions, we feel good. (read more about that here). Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The brain´s script is a collection of experiences it has made from nothing, so they seem to be something when believed to be experienced by someone that the brain also has created from nothing. In other words, what you believe to experience seems to confirm there is a tangible world outside of you, and you, therefore, are a substantial being in it.

Although a movie with superheroes is unrealistic, it is enjoyable when you accept its premise. So is the experience coming from the brain of being in a world where there seems to be more than one, even though there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

This is very entertaining when the script is perceived as it is and not as it could be – just like it is amusing to watch a movie when the plot is accepted and very frustrating if you expect it to be in line with spiritual ideas, for example, because then everything seems wrong. Read more about that here.

In other words, you feel fine when you choose to perceive the experiences coming from the brain for what they are instead of what they could be. When you do that, you do not have to meditate or something else that makes you think you can change what comes from the brain into something you deem as better.

Trying to figure out whether your perception is in sync with the brain´s script or not, it is out of sync. Because if it is in sync with the manuscript, you do not try to figure out something but trust the brain to do it. No worries, being out of sync is easily corrected. If you choose to perceive your reaction to reading this as ´it is what it is´, you are in sync. You could also decide not to choose to perceive your response, as, without your interference, the brain automatically makes a perception in sync with its script.

That Alexius is on the best of terms with the brain does not mean it spares him for tragic experiences. Fortunately, there is no need to do that because being in sync with the brain every experience is entertaining. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To clarify the above. You are not in charge of the script, so you cannot change what and where you appear to be. This does not mean that you cannot choose between going right or left, for example, but that the following thoughts, feelings, and experiences play out as scripted by the brain. Just like in a video game, you can only move within the limitations of the script. So if your movements seem to cause a transformation, it is as illusionary as anything else in the game.

Should the thoughts that come from the brain seem to upset you, it is not because of them but the way you perceive them.

But also, like in a video game, you are free to perceive the brain´s script as you fancy. However, the brain has already made the thoughts for this. Metaphorically speaking, it has placed them in a pool from where you can select those that suit your choice of perception. That is if you make a perception in sync with the brain´s script because, in this pool, there are not enough thoughts to create a story where you, and not the brain, is in charge. Hence you need more thoughts if you want to compose such a story. But this is easily accomplished. When you try to control thoughts, they multiply to escape your domination. Read more about that here.

Even though the making of a perception in which you are in charge is accompanied by chaotic thoughts, you do not want to change the perception to one in sync with the brain´s script because then you cannot uphold the image of being unique. Instead, you try to eliminate the clutter of thoughts that disturbs this image by meditating. But, again, like in a video game, troubles are not solved by meditation or detachment but by participating in the plot as it is. You know you do that when feeling entertained because that is the sole purpose of the brain´s script.

It does not matter if you perceive the brain´s script in a negative or positive way, or if it seems to make you feel stressed or relaxed, talkative or silent, at peace or war and whatnot.

As long as you relate to the script as it is and not as you think it should be, a relation between you and the brain is established. And since it confirms the foundation of the script, namely that there is more than that which is one, the brain is grateful. Hence it rewards you with shots of happiness. Read more about that here.

All Alexius´ Duality Hacks help you feeling entertained.* In other words, they turn the suffering that believing to be someone in a capsule of time and space entails into an adventure of pleasure. Eventually, you feel so entertained that there is no more to ask for and thus not something appearing to hide there is no more than that which is one.

Something can only be perceived to have gone wrong when you need to feel right. That you do if not feeling entertained by the brain´s script, but imagine a better story. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That said, the transient from having a perception out of sync with the brain to one that is in sync may seem unpleasant because your former special relationships hooked up with special perceptions do not seem appealing anymore.

But if you do not try to edit the feelings that bother you, their uncontrolled energy ignites a take-off into the empty breath. It resides in the nothingness from where the brain renders a world of something. But since the empty breath is unprocessed by the brain, it does not see the experiences of nothing as something.

Read here about the brains making of a world in which we appear be somebody.

Check hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing for how to ignite a take-off into the empty breath and hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone if you want to explore more about it before connecting with it.

Thus your slate is wiped clean when you return to the consciousness of being someone in the experiences of a tangible world made by the brain that you automatically. But since what and where you believe in being is the sum of your memories, and they are stored in the brain, it is what and where you are. Hence serving it is to serve yourself.

We are not talking about serving that which is you. It cannot be served because it is that which is one, and it takes more than one serve. And since it also takes more than one to be someone, what you believe in being is nothing. But fortunately, Alexius´ Duality Hacks make it, so fun to believe nothing is something that you end up having nothing to ask for. Hence there is nothing to uphold the belief in something, thus nothing to hide the formlessness of that which is you.

APPENDIX about the perception of nothing as something
Like anything else that can be experienced, Alexius´ Duality Hacks are, of course, an illusion. They do not try to hide that but expose the fallacy of everything experienced, so what you believe to experience does not appear to hide what cannot be experienced, namely that which is one.

Therefore, do not apply Alexius´ Duality Hacks if you want to uphold the belief that you are someone, because they will make you laugh at this idea as it requires more than one to be someone, and there never was or will be more that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

Do not apply them either if you want to return to the formlessness of oneness because that implies you have left it. That is not possible because it requires more than one. Instead, apply them if you believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. This will not make you see oneness, as seeing is make-believe. But you, eventually, stop seeing anything at all. Hence there is not something that appears to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one.

How long time this takes does not matter. Time is an illusion. Still, the more the illusionary process of undoing the belief in more than one progresses, the less there seems to be to hide you are nothing that appears to be something. Hence you can relax and have fun believing to see something while the belief that it is real gets undone.


*) This does not apply to the enlightenment of that which is one, as it takes more than one to be aware of something. See hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is one.
