+ The transparency of bliss comes from not making a difference

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

Alexius has not realised oneness, neither has anybody else because it takes more than one to realise 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 without beginning and end and therefore with no way in or out, to erase the consciousness of this and everything else, so there is neither nothing or something as any appearance requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one. Read about the ins and out of a black hole here.

And as this is still so, he is no more and has never been, though 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, as this experience is an invention of the brain, it prevents the special self from being enlightened, as that erases all the experiences it has made.

As the basic self, however, is used to follow the flow of thoughts, it does not seem difficult to follow the empty breath into a state of not-knowing, which often precedes the enlightenment of that which is oneBut it may also seem quite 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.

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 #2.2 Everything experienced is a symbol of life). Or by connecting with the empty breath and its indifference to the apparent different experiences, the brain produces of a world that seems tangible (see hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone).

»So the last will be first, and the first will be last.« Matthew 20:16

Applying one or both of those hacks everything, though apparently different, becomes 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 is nothing is not something you are aware of, because to be so you had to be something. Yet it is like nothing passes nothing when there appears to be something going on around you. When laying in your bed, there is no awareness of you in a bed because it does not seem to differ from you. See also the part The transparent sound of the empty breath in What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?

It may feel as if the body is not physical but something not limited to being anywhere in specific. And that everything is spinning like a cat is not a feeling but the way it is. This is not an out-of-the-body experience or a realisation of oneness, because all experiences and realisations 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, so latest 20 minutes, 45 at most after you entered a state of not-knowing, this is how you leave it. See the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks.

Be aware, that the transition to a state of not-knowing, which may last from a 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 are crawling on your body, for instance, so that feeling attacked keeps you in the consciousness of being 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. Doing so, the hope for more vanishes and so there is nobody with a need to tell somebody, it is not possible to be and have more than that which is one.


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, alone together** you recognise 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 the hell of the belief in being special, he had to produce perceptions that seemed to prove he was special. So it is based on experience when he says there is no way to change this perception if you are afraid of losing something, which you are as long as you believe to be and have something special. 

From experience, he can also say that the willingness to apply the duality hacks set him free from this belief and therefore also from the need to be in control. Thus the energy of unedited feelings ignited a take-off to the empty breath and its transparency of bliss. That was if the feelings had not already become just another symbol of that which cannot be felt, namely the formlessness of oneness.

In other words, he applied hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone and/or hack #2.2 Everything experienced is a symbol of life. You may fancy another combo of the duality hacks or maybe just a single one.

It may be appropriate to put in here that the above has nothing to do with the popular concept of letting go because that is a confirmation of you as someone who is in control. Instead, it is the willingness to have the belief in being someone definitive undone, that sets you off on a journey into the unknown.

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 them. They are not getting rid of the ego or whatever the special self imagines will make you free, but to make you feel good whether you appear to be good or not, have a big ego or whatnot.

While the belief in being someone definitive undone is progressing, the entertainment of the very same belief is beef up by the duality hacks, so the experience of being someone definitive is like binge-watching all the episodes of an exciting TV show and feel so fulfilled by the entertainement that you forget to confirm what and where you appear to is real.

In other words, in the process of undoing the belief in being someone definitive, they wiped the slate clean so your perception is not out of sync with the brain anymore and the basic self, therefore is restored. Hence you are happily falling in love without any speculations about it being unconditional or whatnot. And best of all, at the same time, the belief that you are someone in love with someone else is being undone, so that the belief in separation does not appear to hide there is no more than that which is one.
