++ The transparency of bliss comes from not knowing [draft]

Following the script of the brain for being a basic self is like taking part in a silent movie. There is not all the noise, that seems to come from thoughts. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius has not realised oneness, neither has anybody else, as it takes more than one to accomplish something. For the same reason, it is not possible to be enlightened. Yet he has vague memories of not knowing what and where he is, so nothing prevents a light, that is absorbed by a black hole with no beginning and end and thus no way in or out, to erase everything he is conscious about – including what he believed to be – so there are no experiences hiding there never was or will be more than that which is one. Read about the ins and out of a black hole here.

Thus he is neither in that which is one or in a world where there seems to be more than one. Still, he appears to be someone who is compared to the enlightenment of that which is one in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Some confuse the basic self for being enlightened, but as already mentioned, this is not possible for someone who experiences to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Furthermore, the experience of being someone is a fabrication of the brain which the enlightenment erases so it will do everything to distract the special self from being enlightened.

With the basic self, it is another story. As it is used to follow the flow of thoughts, and the brain does not want to distract it from that, it is not that different for the basic self to follow the empty breath into a state of not-knowing, which often is what sets off the enlightenment of that which is one. That is if it has not been tempting to follow the belief system of the special self instead, as its promises of independence from the brain by coming from the heart, for example, seems to open up a new and more exciting world.

The purpose of being someone definitive is to hide the formlessness of oneness by insisting on making a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since every experience, however, is processed by the brain, no matter where it is interpreted to come from, the purpose of it is always the same, namely to hide the nothingness on which it is founded. The purpose of the duality hacks, on the other hand, is to expose that the experience of you as someone substantial in a tangible world is fabricated from out of nothing. In other words, it is make-believe.

This is for example exposed when perceiving everything experienced as symbols of that which cannot be experienced (see hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life). Or by connecting with the empty breath and its indifference to the apparent different experiences produced by the brain (see hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone).

»Hold pleasure and pain, profit and loss, victory and defeat to be the same.« Bhagavad Gita

Applying one or both of those hacks, everything, though apparently different, is perceived to be the same. So no matter what something appears to be – first or last, good or bad, light or dark, for example – it makes no difference.

That you and everything else experienced, therefore, is nothing, you cannot be aware of, as to be so you got to be something. Yet it is like nothing passes nothing when there appears to be something around you, and when laying in your bed, for example, there is no awareness of you in a bed in a room because everything seems to be included in you. See also the part The transparent sound of the empty breath in What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?

The body may be experienced as immaterial and not limited to being somewhere in particular. Not in the sense that it can fly or do supernatural things but that it does not seem to have a definitive end and that the feeling of a cat that spins goes through everything. This is not an out-of-the-body experience or a realisation of oneness, because all experiences and achievements are founded on the assumption that there is more than one. But it is a state of not-knowing.

In a state of not-knowing, there is so much bliss that nobody is making a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In that state, there is so much bliss that nobody objects to being terminated by the enlightenment of that which is one* or going back to the consciousness of being someone definitive, which is the ways you leave a state of not-knowing latest 20 minutes, 45 at most after you entered it. See To be in sync with the natural flow of thoughts or the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks.

The moment you stop relating, you go into a state of not-knowing. You stop relating when you do not care about what and where you appear to be because then no relation is needed to establish you as someone definitive.

Be aware, that the transition to a state of not-knowing, which can last from a split second to several days, may not seem pleasant. The brain tries to distract you from leaving its definable world by producing very tangible and disturbing experiences, like if ants crawl on your body, for instance, so that you feel attacked and thus someone definitive. See also If included irritation undoes the belief in duality.

You cannot know that which is one when you experience to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Thus looking forward to oneness is madness. You can, however, look forward to not believing, that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The more you do so the hope for more vanishes so the less there is somebody to believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Though new agers believe, that a world where there seems to be more than one is unholy, they worship special people and places in it as if they are holy and not an illusion. This is like believing the most exciting part of a movie is real. None of it is real. It is all make-believe. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings come to him as ethereal harmonies. It is not before he hums along with them, that the words of 
a song about how to undo the belief in being someone definitive float from the ethereal harmonies into his computer.

When Alexius asks the source of the ethereal harmonies, which he calls Gudruång,** if a specific song is finished, there is no answer. Probably because it takes more than one to answer and there is no more than that which is one. Thus Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings have no end, nor do they have an answer.

Sometimes, however, this song is out of tune. That happens when Alexius thinks he has something to add because it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one something can be added. Thus what he adds has nothing to do with that which is one. But it also happens when words do not come to him naturally and he, therefore, uses some from his default vocabulary. It is a bit like when he is speaking Spanish, which is not his native language, and in need of a word, he tries an English term that he hopes is similar to Spanish. At times it works and at other times he is completely off.

This is why he, again and again, fine-tune Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings and why what you are not reading the final but the present version of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

There are others who try to put words together into a song about that which is real versus that which is not. But as most have not bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, they assume that they know what is real, and as it takes more than one to know something, their song – no matter how beautiful it may appear to be – is just another glorification of separation.

When the special self sees similarities between new age teachings and Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, it is wishful thinking. New age philosophy is based on the idea, that what you believe to be can be made better, whereas the foundation for Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is, that whatever you believe to be is an illusion.

This also applies if their song is based on glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one because just like a movie trailer is not the movie, these glimpses are not the enlightenment of that which is one. See The enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it.

That which is one has only one word and as it takes more than one to hear anything, it cannot be heard. For the same reason Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings cannot be understood.

But they seem to believe, that based on the trailer and their interpretation of it, they can create the whole movie, which they often assume is done by adding secondhand knowledge from ancient scriptures, for example. In other words, as their teaching is based on understanding, and it takes more than one to understand something, they enhance the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one instead of undoing it.

The application of one or more of the duality hacks, on the other hand, do not require any understanding or effort. They apply themselves if you do not understand them.

So the less you understand, the more you have the belief in being someone is undone and as you, therefore, know that all experiences are make-believe, inclusive that the brain or something else is making them, you have fun pretending they are real – just like when playing a game.

A duality hacker is not streaming the construction of thoughts made by the brain to render a world of duality, but Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, which are hacking that flow.Thus the duality hacker is not confirmed to be someone in a world of duality, though appearing to be there.

Years ago Alexius and his sons had much fun playing different board games. By following the flow of the games, they naturally came to an end. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

By following the stream of thoughts to the very end, what you appear to end there as well. It could be the final end of you the appearing to be in a body or just what you have seemed to be until then. The latter was what happened to Alexius when he followed the stream of thoughts deep into an ancient forest where he was stuck for two days without water and food. After having been wired up by a helicopter and spending more than a month on two hospitals, he did not appear like a hiker anymore but an Enlightened Non-Teacher (read more about that here).

If you try to stop, change or hold onto specific parts of the experiences produced by the brain, they become sticky and you, therefore, inflexible.

Finishing the writing of hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one, which like the rest of HACK #4 is a recent add-on to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings,**** seems to be the end of the stream supporting the writing of the non-teachings. Instead, a stream supporting his basic trait as a storeroom-manager seems to take over, so the creativity of writing is replaced with the seemingly more boring process of refining what has been written. None of that changes though, he is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one because that is not an appearance.

Nor does it change that Alexius Enlightened Non-Teachings are not his or anybody else’s. The content of them can be compared to water running out of a tap, which in this metaphor is his buddy Gudruång** and Alexius the empty glass picking it up in the shape of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. It is not of any importance which glass picks up the flow of water. Any other empty glass could do it up and probably will when the appearance of Alexius falls apart.

The shape of the Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings may seem to change when typed by somebody else, and the name may also vary but the flow picked up is the same. It cannot change, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one. For the same reason, it is, of course, a metaphor that Alexius picks up the flow and shape it into enlightened non-teachings that somebody else read.

But as long as you believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, there seems to be more than one involved in the undoing of that belief.

Even though waves have a different length of life and may look like they differ from each other, they all consist of water. In other words, none of them has something that makes them more special than others. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

On the set out of writing hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one, Alexius used other people as role models for the special self, and since they shamelessly declared their egoistic intentions when asked about something, it seemed easy to write about the special self.

If not perceiving the apparent difference between what is experienced to be you and others to make a difference, you recognise alone together*** that it is a fantasy made from out of nothing. Thus there is not something appearing to hide there is no more than that which is one.

But to really be able to feel what it feels like when one believes to be special, he had to produce perceptions that implied that he believed so. Hence it is based on experience when he says there is no way to escape this hell of self-discipline if you are afraid to lose something, which you are as long as you believe to be and have something special.

He had often noticed that gurus and others who have had glimpses enlightenment used them to hide leftovers of the special self in themselves. And in the process of imitating it, he realised that what he had recognised in others was based on what he had hidden in himself by projecting it onto others. See also The YOU finger and the three ME fingers. The description of the special self in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one is, therefore, not only based on others but the leftover bits of it in him as well. 

In the process of having the belief in being someone definitive undone, the entertainment of the very same belief is beefed up by the duality hacks. The experience of being someone definitive is, therefore, like binge-watching an exciting TV show and feel so entertained that you forget what you perceive to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That is why it is from experience, he says that the special self, first of all, tries to not be engaged so it can perceive itself to be in control and others as if they experience it to be detached. And he can also say, it is not a matter of avoiding this or anything else or doing something in specific but have the willingness to apply the duality hacks.

They expose your headache, love, grievances and whatnot as the same nothingness, wherefore there is not something to confirm you to be someone in a substantial body, so there is nobody to be free, detached or awake from anything. And nobody seems to be laughing about this.

In the above, he applied hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´, and the bliss of not believing to be someone. He could also have applied hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life by perceiving his projections as another symbol of that which cannot be felt, namely the formlessness of oneness. Or he could have used a combo of the duality hacks.

It may be appropriate to put in here that applying the duality hacks has nothing to do with the popular concept of letting go because that is a confirmation of you as someone who is in control of itself. Instead, it is the willingness to have the belief in being someone definitive undone, that sets you off on a journey without distance to that which cannot be known.

The duality hacks are not gonna set you free from anything. They make you free to everything.

Having this willingness, which you most often get by admitting that you are not willing to have the belief in being someone undone (read more about that here), the duality hacks naturally apply themselves during or after reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings

In the process of doing that, the duality hacks erase the perceptions that are out of sync with the brain, so the basic self is restored, and you have a happy time believing to be someone while this belief is being undone.

***) See hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one.

****) HACK #3, Not being exclusive but inclusive is, by the way, also an add-on to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. The three original hacks were HACK #1, Pretending to be someone definitiveHACK #2, Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality and HACK #5-7, Inner senses, enlightenment, and glimpses of it. They did not arrive in that order though. The enlightenment of that which is one was the first one.
