Alexius, The Enlightened Non-Teacher, Personal Intro

My name is Alexius – by some shortened to Alex. I was born and grew up in Denmark, but nowadays, I live partly there and on La Gomera, which is a small Canary island close to West Sahara in Africa. Here is a short listing of what I have appeared to be, do and have in the world for the past 67 years:

NO EDUCATION MAN
Isn´t it amazing what one can do when one has no education and does not know what one is or does?

When I was 16 years old, I left school and started working with children. Here a year later, sitting furthermost to the left in a house built together with the children. The photo is a snapshot of an image in an old magazine.

KID MAN
Worked with children from I was 16. Two of the bestselling newspapers in my native country wrote articles about that.

TRAVELLING MAN
I lived in a Volkswagen bus with my girlfriend here there and everywhere in Europe from 18 years old.

TAXI MAN
From 19 years old.

FRENCH MAN
Living in an old village in the south of France from I was 21.

ASHRAM MAN
A monk for four years from I was 22.

ENLIGHTENED MAN OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
At 22 years old, I for a moment forgot what and where I was and as nothing fell through a black hole into that which is one. Hence I am to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one.

In this photo from the late 70s, I pose for a photographer from one of the many newspapers writing about my businesses, in this case, a vegetarian restaurant. The photo is a snapshot of an image in an old newspaper.

BUSINESS MAN
Started two restaurants and two bars from scratch when I was 26. One of the restaurants was the first vegetarian restaurant in my native country. The other was amongst the first restaurants nominated to Guide Michelin. A fictional movie based on one of my bars and its characters of models, punks and musicians were produced by Danish Television, who also produced ´The Killing´. Had no money when I started the business adventure, as I had just moved out of Ashram, but quickly I made a lot. Lost it all again, though, so I finished 12 years later, like I started, with no money.

FAMILY MAN
Settled as a family man with two beautiful sons from when I was 30.

MUSIC MAN
Dj´ed on discos with house and techno music and on the radio with R&B when I was 35.

Were doing healing massage for a while, here as an assistant at a school for that at the beginning of the 90s. The photo is a snapshot of an analogue image.

NOT A SPECIAL MAN
After years of serious business, I felt like chilling out – from 38 years old.

HEALING MAN
Practising aura massage from I was 41.

TV MAN
Producing local television from I was 42.

TEACHING MAN
A teacher in graphic design from I was 43 on a Danish School for public relations.

MEDIA MAN
Delivering creative solutions for big and small companies through my company Mediaman from I was 45.

PHOTO MAN
Until I recently deleted all of my photos on the web, except those included in Alexius´ Duality Hacks, I was on Google’s list of the best photographers in the world. Yet, I have never been a photographer – just someone having fun shooting photos unposed and unarranged without a tripod or concern for the correct exposure, angle, frame but for creating an image reminiscent of the moment as I experience it. Started doing this when I was 56.

Being wired up from the rainforest to a helicopter, I realised every moment is the perfect moment. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Had just been wired up from the rainforest into a helicopter when I realised every moment is the perfect moment. Not in the sense that everything is perfect, but in the sense that the apparent difference between this and that makes no difference. In other words, it would have been just as perfect for dying in the forest as it was to be bought back into the world. The photo was shot by one of the saviours.

MAN OF THE FUTURE
When I was 57, The Danish Institute of Future Research selected me as a role model for the time to come and called me a hero of the future.

ART MAN
Curator of several art sites on Google+ from I was 59.

MAN OF THE MOMENT
When I was 61, I realised every moment is the perfect moment after being rescued by a helicopter from a rainforest where I had been stuck for two days without food and water.

NON-TEACHING MAN
Started writing Alexius´ Duality Hacks when I was 63.

There is not something to stop the writing of AlexiusDuality Hacks because Alexius is nothing. Selfie © Alexius Jorgensen.

NO FACEBOOK MAN
Do not use Facebook or any other social media to tell how much I am or have since what I appear to be and have is nothing. Not in the sense that I do not have a body installed in an apartment with beautiful pieces of furniture and lovely cats, but in the sense that there is no ´I´ with a need to be defined by this, nor by the writing of Alexius´ Duality Hacks.

NOTHING
Actually, all the above is nothing because everything experienced or remembered is an illusion. Also, the one who seems to be conscious of it, as it takes more than one to be aware of something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

EVERYTHING
When there is nothing experienced or remembered, there is no belief to hide that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. Thus you are and have everything. This, of course, is a metaphor because there is no one in that which is one, who is or have anything, as that requires more than one.
