NOTES To be inclusive is to be ´alone together´

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you do not try to find a scapegoat in the world, where you can unload your own negativity, but instead include it as yours, you set the world free and yourself as well, because just like electricity needs the negative pole as much as the positive one, so do you, if you do not want the exclusion of negativity to establish you as a victim of the world and hence a prisoner of it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Inclusion sets you free, but those appearing to be outside of you are set free, because they are not used as scapegoats to store excluded thoughts and feelings.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is not only by projecting upsetting feelings onto others, that you imprison them. Projecting feelings of love onto others imprison both them and you as well.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To fall in love is exactly that: A fall. No worries. You are on your feet again, when whatever you experience to fall in love with is included, as then there is no separation and therefore nobody to love. There is just love.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The inclusion of upsetting feelings does not result in you feeling less constrained, but feeling so will not bother you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Inclusion cancels out the effect of exclusion, which is separation, and without that, the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one cannot survive. In other words, you know that there is nothing to fear because just like in a dream you are not there. It is just make-believe. Knowing this, there is no world to escape.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

What you pretend to be, you are not, so if you pretend to be someone in a world based on exclusion, you are not excluded from that which is you, namely that which is pretending to be there.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The end of a person is not the beginning of something new. Nothing is finished except for the belief, that you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. When this belief is no more, nothing appears to hide that which always was and always is, namely one perpetual present.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

No matter how beautifully something is defined it will confirm separation and therefore seems to cause suffering. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Those defining themselves as a vegetarian believe it is better for them and/or the world to not eat meat. In other words, to be someone definitive is not a fact but a belief based on what is excluded.

It is not possible to hack this belief by meditation or other techniques supposed to stop or transform something, as such ideas are founded on exclusion, which is what defines you as someone definitive and therefore separated from everything else.

But by being inclusive, there is nothing to define you like someone. You are nobody, and so there are no definitions to hide that which is you, namely the formlessness of one perpetual present.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Be happy each time you notice the same thoughts occurring again and again. It is most likely excluded thoughts that are begging to be included.

To include them is to be them, and to be them is to be confused and not knowing what is going on. In other words not being able to define anything everything is included and thus not separated from the formlessness of oneness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Every time you believe somebody to be different from you, you exclude them in order for you not to be what you perceive them to be. This belief causes suffering. Yet by not being exclusive but inclusive the belief is easily undone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In order to have compassion for somebody, they must be judged them to be different from you. Thus compassion is an act of exclusion and therefore to inflict suffering.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When everything in a world where there seems to be more than one is included, there is not something that needs to be finished, because one perpetual present is not hidden by the idea of linear time.

Thoughts cannot be stopped, but they can be included. When not excluded they lose the meaning you have projected on them. Hence you are in a state of not-knowing, and so there is nobody to suffer.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is not easy being inclusive, if you believe what you include is real. But when you know appearing to be a person in a world where there seems to be more than one is not real but make-believe, it is so easy to include the good experiences as well as the bad ones – just like the apparent difference between the happiness of winning and the sadness of loosing in a game makes no difference when not pretending to be in its world.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you do not perceive differences to make a difference, you can have fun pretending that they do.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It may seem scary to include, that a world where there seems to be more than one is not a fact but a fiction, that can be compared to the world of a movie. Nothing in it is real, since reality is the formlessness of oneness, and formlessness is endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

One way to include what is excluded is to change the word ´you´ with ´I´, so when saying ´you are this and that´ it is replaced with ´I am this and that´. In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings the apparent difference between non-student and non-teacher makes no difference because there is no mo than that which is one. In other words, Alexius is not just the non-teacher but also the non-student or vice versa. This includes all those appearing neither to be non-teacher or non-student.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Sometimes the fastest way to include feelings is to breathe through them. But as this may seem to cause pain, it may not be the easiest way. That is until the pain is included as well.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When there is no more to include, there does not appear to be more than that which always was and is, namely that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Everything can be included in one fell swoop by remembering to forget what and where you believe to be.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

No matter how many copies you make of a digital movie, photo or music album and how the copies are used, nothing is missing from the original. It is unchanged. The same applies to that which is one, no matter how much more you appear to be and have in a world, where there seems to be more than one, oneness remains unchanged. It is formless, so there is not something to change – neither is there something that can disappear. Yet it is possible to believe that copied, remixed and extended versions of oneness can hide that there is no more than that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The more you get, the more the brain rewards your greed by releasing more dopamine and endorphins, so you feel more high on yourself. It never last, however, so you must always look for more – or use the illusion that it is possible to have more to have more and more exposed as empty space, that appears to hide there is no more than that which is one, because you believe, there is something where there is nothing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To be and have more only seems necessary, because you experience to be someone in a world outside the formlessness of oneness. But as formlessness is endless, there is nothing outside of it, so the experience of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe.

When you sense this, you do not believe a world where there seems to be more than one ever had anything to offer – just like you once stopped believing Santa Claus ever brought you any gifts.

That which is one has a built-in safeguard mode, that starts simulating a world where there seems to be more than one, if you believe to be separated from the oneness of that which is you, so you do not have to feel lonesome while having this belief.

The simulation turns off the moment, you stop believing it is possible to exclude or be excluded from that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To exclude a feeling is to not be it and to include it is to be it – and being it, you are not scared of it anymore.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To include a feeling is not to understand it but to be it, which is done by fully expressing it to those, you are assuming to have caused it. Not physically speaking though because it is your mind that you are accusing somebody else of having caused your feeling, so you express it there.

Do not be ashamed if you burst out in anger. Exposing feelings without shame is to include them. Should you feel ashamed, do not try to stop it, but include it … and if you cannot help trying to stop it, you include you hold back.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The first step of solving a problem is to locate it, and in the case of believing you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, the problem is not in such a world or what you appear to be there – neither inside it.

If it feels humiliating going to prison in a game like Monopoly, the problem is not in the world of the game but in the mind of the player, where it is easy to correct, since there is no jail. The problem is make-believe, and that applies to any problem in a world where there seems to be more than one as well. That is why it must be solved where make-believe is fabricated.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Not knowing what and where you are is the fastest shortcut to turn off the simulation of a world where there seems to be more than one.

Another shortcut is to defocus*, as without focus the apparent differences of such a world cannot be experienced and thus neither separation.

NOTE: This article is part of hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment.

[+] Inclusion is liberation from separation (in the process of being updated)

Accept darkness instead of fighting it, and it will enhance the light of the moment.

The sum of any contrast is a perfect moment, so instead of denying or fighting darkness go for it, as this will bring out its contrast, light, as well. Not in the way though that they will merge into dawn, but that they will cancel out each other so that there is nothing to experience. That is a perfect moment. The photo, by the way, is from such a perfect moment in my garden. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The two cats – Wincent and Guinevere – that Alexius is sharing a home with have a big territorial instinct, so when a new cat curiously showed up in their home, they got very upset – especially Guinevere. She freaked out and furiously ran away. When she later returned, she did not notice that the stranger was still were chilling out on the sofa, so she laid down on the floor without a worry – until she suddenly looked up and saw him. Then hell was loose.

By thinking the world is the cause of your state of mind, it is justified by the world and thus excluded from what it believed to be you. In this way separation is made real, because projecting the cause of your state of mind onto powers, that appears to be outside of you, there seems to be more than one.

Once again she furiously left us, and even though the visitor had left when she returned, she was still very upset. To prove that her feelings of unjust were justified, she searched for spots of leftover scent from the visitor. Every time she found one, she freaked out so Wincent and Alexius could see how much the stranger had hurt her feelings.

Ultimately speaking it is not possible to be troubled by something, as there is no more than that which is one and it requires more than one to be troubled by something. But if you believe to be someone in a world, where there seems to be more than one, there will always be somebody or something that seems to cause trouble.

In other words, you will not be trouble-free before the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is undone.

The anger, Guinevere was holding onto, was supposed to exclude the unfamiliar cat from her world and to make him suffer for what she imagined he had done to her. But as the new cat mostly had spent his time in her world by sleeping on the sofa, he had no idea, that she was angry and he was supposed to suffer from it. In fact, he happily returned the next day to take another nap on the sofa. Nonetheless, there was another one, who felt punished by her anger, namely herself. It was eating her up from inside.

This is not a story about anger but the purpose of holding onto it
The above cat story is not meant to be a story about anger, but the purpose of justifying feelings, which is to manifest the belief that there is more than that which is one.

A feeling in itself cannot confirm this belief. But when it is justified by something judged to be outside of you, you become a victim of forces in a world where there seems to be more than one.. Thus the justification of a feeling confirms the belief that you are someone in such a world. At least that is what you want to believe, even though the prize of this belief is pain.

As it takes more than one to feel something, and as there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless, any kind of feeling always ends up being experienced as painful. In this way you are reminded, it is not possible to be or have more than that which is one.

In the case of Guinevere, her anger justified by the stranger makes her seem superior to him, though she actually has turned herself into a victim of him. This makes them both appear to be somebody special, and as Guinevere want to be especially good compared to the stranger that she judges to be evil, more anger is justified with him with. And as the result is the same as before even more anger must be justified with the evil one – and so it goes on and on.

Feeling angry or happy results in the same, if those feelings are justified by something, namely the enhancement of being separated from a world that appears to be outside of you.

A victim of justification
Even though what we did judge to be a problem is out-of-the-way, we often choose to hold onto it in order to justify any anger popping up. Besides we also want to punish those we blame for it – perhaps our parents – by putting up a sad face so that they will feel guilty about how much they have hurt us.

Feeling angry is an imagination, as reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to feel something.

If it is only when anger is attributed with a cause, that it appears as if somebody or something has upset you. But if it is not attributed with a cause, nothing has upset you. The way to attribute anger with a cause is to justify it, so if you do not do that, the story is over and anger does not seem dangerous, because it is not triggering a story of pain.

In the context of the story of Guinevere this means, that if she does not exclude anger from herself by justifying it as if it is caused by the visiting cat but include it as hers, she has no need to get upset about a visitor in her home and make up a story that implies he must be punished for disturbing her peace of mind. Neither does she need to make up a story about forgiveness, because there is nothing to forgive.

In the context of the story of Guinevere this means, that if she does not exclude her present anger from herself by justifying it as caused by the last visit of a foreign cat but include it as hers, she has no need to find things that reminds her of the stranger in her home and make up a story that implies he must be punished for disturbing her peace of mind. Neither does she need to make up a story about forgiveness, because there is nothing to forgive.

If a feeling of rejection is not justified by what somebody else appear to have done or not done, the feeling is not excluded but included and as that means it does not represent separation, there is no rejection.

Guinevere likes to sit on the balcony. It is not because of the view, but the canaries that she sees in the avocado trees and dream of catching. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no darkness without light and vice versa
Even though the everyday view from the balcony of Alexius in the above image is very pleasurable to the eye, he sometimes succeeds in finding things there that seems to justify a discomforting feeling. Just like Guinevere, who was looking for hidden things home to evoke the story she made up of her encounter with the visiting cat so that her justification of the anger he seemed to trigger from her past could be excluded from her.

To include a feeling as it is, you just let it be without justifying it. To let it be requires, that you consider yourself to be someone definitive, as otherwise there would not be someone to let it be. But by letting it be you lose control and without it you cannot align your appearance into someone definitive. Hence you are nobody.

In this way somebody, who appears to make you angry, becomes somebody who helps you becoming nobody – and it takes nobody to have a perfect moment, since it is a state of not-knowing.

Guinevere, who came to Alexius when she was around five months old, had been left behind twice by other people, so when events in the present trigger her old feelings of insecurity she freaks out. Alexius grew up in a home, that felt like a war zone to him, so he tends to justify his anger as a necessity to protect him from a devastating power interpreted to come from outside of him. 

Such anger from the past does not have to be an ongoing problem though, because when not excluded by blaming somebody else for having caused it, but instead included exactly as it is experienced, it will not only reveal its other side, which is pleasure, but also that the sum of the opposites in a contrast is a perfect moment.

In a perfect moment, anger is not a disturbing feeling, pushed away into the dark. Instead, it is taken into the light, so the hidden memories of the past, that seemed to have caused it, is no more. Not by going back into the past to fix it, neither by denying it, but by including the pain and anger of the past as it is experienced in the present.

Feelings need the belief in a world, where there seems to be more than one, because it takes more than one to feel something – and such a world needs feelings in order to be experienced as if it is real and not just make-believe.

Inclusion frees you from your own story of a world made up of past memories, and as it is those memories you use to keep your belief in separation alive, the concepts used to condition you into assuming that you are an autonomous creature quietly falls apart. This does not mean that you will get rid of your conditioning. If you try that, they will just be replaced by others. But it means you will not consider them to be real – just like even though you play along with the rules of a game, you do not consider the rules of it to be real.

When you know there is nothing to hope for, there is nothing to hide that which is one

Folder-Computer-icon

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1:
The way a computer is organised like a desktop with folders and subfolders gives the impression that there are things of different size and importance to find on different levels. This is not because it actually is so. On the contrary. There is no organisation at all. It is all stored chaotically and non-dimensionally on a flat hard disk. Yet it is made to appear on the screen as if everything is organised in time and space because that is the way a person expects life to be.

The world, that we appear be in, can be compared to a computer. What we seem to see in the world is an illusion layered on top of reality, that has nothing to do with the way the world is perceived.

There is no universe in the way a person perceives it. What is there can be compared to flat data from a flat hard disk, that is programmed to look like a 3D world on the screen, when you wear special glasses to help the brain fooling you into believing, you see such a world.  In other words, the reality of life is not dimensional but flat. Dimensions are make-believe.

What you seem to see in the world appears to have different sizes and to last for a certain time, as if it exist in a world made by time and space. But in reality there is no time and space. There is no more than that which is one, which has no size and cannot be seen, as that would require more than one.

Life is real, and what is real cannot be seen in a make-believe world. Just like when you are engaged in a virtual world on a computer, you cannot see what it is covering. And you may not even want to see what it is covering, because that will ´destroy´ the illusion of the world, where you appear to be someone special.

It is you as the observer, who is moving to create the illusion of time and space. In reality nothing moves, because reality is that which is one. Your first move is to depart from the reality and imagine there is more than that which is one, namely an observer and the observed.

The next move is to forget, you are split in two and only identify with the observer, who keeps moving around the observed as if it is outside the observer and appears to move in time in a dimensional way.

You cannot know what is real, as long as you hope for something, because the reality is not something
To not cover up the reality of life, you have to give up the excitement of a make-believe world, that only seems to be there, because you have distanced yourself from reality, so that what you by appearing to observe from different angles can divide it into fragments that is used to fabricate a layer on top of reality where there seems to be more than one.

In oneness there is no universe. There is nothing but that which is one. That is why there is nothing but peace.

To appear separated from the reality of that which is one is fearful. That is why you cannot be at peace when you believe to be in a world, where there seems to be more than one. Besides peace is real and there is no room for reality in an imagined world. You are bound to get confused in such a world. You cannot know what is real and what is not, as long as you mistake the imagination for reality.

To hope for peace requires more than one, and as there is no more than that which is one, hope separates – and separation entails fear.

When you hope for nothing, there is nothing to hide that which is real
Who am I, is a question that has been asked for ages, but in a make-believe world, everything is imagined, so there is no way to know that which is you in such a world. Well, it is not possible to know at all, because that which is you t is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to know something. Yet, in a world, where there seems to be more than one, you can know that which is not you, namely someone specific in a make-believe world.

The belief that you are someone definitive – whether it seems to be a so-called spiritual or mundane one  – is, of course, confusing, when the reality is that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. So how to undo the belief in something unreal?

No matter how many folders you search on a computer to find its secret, and no matter how deep you go into subfolders, you have not gotten anywhere, because the folders are not really there. They are an illusion layered on top of the source code of the computer, that contains nothing but meaningless combinations of zeros and ones.

When you are out of hope, you know there is nothing to hope for in a world where there seems to be more than one, and so the need to believe it is possible to be someone definitive vanishes. Without this belief, there is not something to hide reality, which is the formlessness of that which is one.

Contrary to that which is one, a world, where there seems to be more than one, is structured. It is as meaningless as a the structure of a game like Monopoly, that you must follow as long as you appear to be on that cardboard. You can have much fun doing so, but if you try to go deeper into it, the fun is over, because it is just a flat cardboard, so if you experience deepness there, you are fooling yourself. Likewise there is nothing deeper in a world, where there seems to be more than one. It is nothing but empty space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Contrary to the formlessness of that which is one, a world where there seems to be more than one is very structured. But the structure is as meaningless as the one, you must follow when you play a game like Monopoly. There is nothing else in the world of Monopoly than what you see, so if you experience something more profound, you are fooling yourself. Likewise, there is nothing else in a world where there seems to be more than one than what you see. There is neither nothing inside or because nothing that can be seen is real. There is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless, and as it takes more than one to see something, everything that can be seen is an illusion made from empty space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
If you have been following Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, it probably comes as no surprise, that it is an illusion to be deep, and that superficiality is recommended because nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one is real. Superficiality is preferable in the sense that deepness tends to lead to a deeper belief in being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, whereas relating to whatever appears to be part of such world – including chakras and whatnot – in a superficial way make it seems less real. And the less real you perceive a world where there seems to be more than one, the less there is to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

To hope for something in a world where there seems to be more than one is to go deeper into it, and so is searching for something there or beyond it. The natural way of relating to what is not real is to not take it seriously and relate to in a superficial way.

That being said, the above statements are written by someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, so they are based on knowing the world is not real. When you know that, it is easy to see what you need to do, while you seem to be in the world because you do not need to do anything but simply follow the flow.

One way to go with the flow is to perceive everything, that seems to happen, in a way so that their apparent differences make no difference. If you, for example, choose to perceive everything as symbols of life, the whole world – including what you seem to be there – becomes symbolic. Consequently, you appear to be in the world but not of it, so when this appearance is all over the transition to reality, namely that which is life, is unproblematic.

How to find peace

Experiences are deceptive. The two orange dots in this image are for example most likely experienced not to have the same size although there actually is no difference. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Experiences are deceptive. The two orange dots in this image are for example most likely experienced to have different sizes. Yet there is no difference in size if you actually measure them. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»When the outer has become as the inner, and the lower as the upper, then will this world find peace.« Jesus according to the Gospel of Thomas.

When the apparent difference between outer and inner, lower and upper make no difference dimensions cease to appear. For something to be defined by time and space it needs to be different from something else, so if there is no difference experienced, there is no separation to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness since formlessness is endless.

In other words, what is dimensional does not exist. It only seems so as long as you insist on perceiving differences as if they make a difference. This illusion is the starting point of believing to be in a world defined by time and space. It is fabricated by imagining it is possible to observe the formlessness of oneness from different angles, which makes it appear as if there are different dimensional scenarios occurring in linear time.

To make long short: By observing you repress, that reality is the formlessness of oneness and not a world defined by time and space.

But you cannot choose to be anything else than the formlessness of oneness, as formlessness is endless, so there is no more than that which is one. You can, however, imagine being someone in a world defined by time and space, where everything appears to be in different sizes that you can choose from.

It can be fun pretending to be where you are not, but believing to be where you are not it feels like imprisonment you want to escape. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Unfortunately, all experiences are deceptive. Think for example about the Earth, that is experienced to be flat even though it is round. Nothing in the world is what it seems to be. In fact, it is nothing but empty space. That is why happiness cannot be found ´there´ no matter how big your home is, your breast or penis is, or how small your ego appears to be.

But if you do not believe to be someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, you can have fun pretending to be ´there´. Just like – within the context of such a world – it can be fun pretending to be someone in the virtual world of a video game.

Yet believing to be in a world defined by time and space, you will be frustrated by what it delivers, because nothing lasts no matter its size or apparent greatness, regardless it seems to be spiritual or mundane. So there will always be fear of loss, and as you still have vague memories of the formlessness of peace, it is a reminder that you have lost it. But this you cannot see until the feeling of loss is exposed instead of fenced off by the anger used to accuse something in a world defined by time and space for having caused it so that the formlessness of peace remains hidden,

In other words, although peace is always present, since it is formless and therefore endless, it appears to be hidden when you hide your apparent loss of it behind anger, whereas the exposure of the essential sadness entailed by the loss of peace makes it possible to feel why you are sad, namely because you believe to be someone definitive. Hence you are not far from wanting to have this belief undone so that it does not hide there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one … and that is peace.

If the unpleasant feeling of anger, just like any other feeling is perceived as a symbol of that which makes it possible to experience a world where there seems to be more than one, instead of being a denial of that which is one it becomes a positive confirmation of it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

One very easy way to take the edge off anger is to perceive it for what it is, namely a symbol of reality because it would not be possible to experience an illusion without that which is real. In other words, everything in a world defined by time and space is a symbol of the formlessness of that which is one – including anger, love, god, angels, soul and whatnot – and perceived like that the sting is taken out of anger.

If you are looking for new experiences, no matter how high or pure they may seem to be, you have turned yourself into a victim of the future.

What you want is what you do not have, so if you presume that peace is what you want, the first step is to realise that you are fooling yourself. You cannot want peace, because contrary to the excitement it is that which is you.

But you can want not to hide peace with dreams of excitement.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The foundation of a world where there seems to be more than one is separation. First, that which is one seems to become two and then more and more – and this is what such a world is about. Yet to be or have more does not lead to more peace, but more separation and therefore a feeling of more loss, which enhances the hope for more.

There is nothing exciting about peace. Nevertheless, it is that which is life – not the kind of life though that appears to have an end. It has no beginning or end and thus no size. And as excitement always is evoked by something definable, that is expected to give you lasting happiness when it is achieved in the future, there is no excitement in peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As peace is that which is one, and as that which is you is no different from that which is one, it is found when nobody is looking for it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

What is said in this article about excitement also applies to hope. Peace leaves you nothing to hope for.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When not rushing around to get excited about this and that, boredom will reveal the peace of that which is.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you are not looking for excitement you do not need to look for ways to relax.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Excitement is based on the idea, that there must be more than that which is one. But no matter how excited or high you get, it is not enough. Any excitement or state of mind will enhance your motive of looking for excitement, namely to be or have more, so any achievement motivates you to look for more.

To be connected is an imagination based on the belief in separation, as you are imagining a connection to something separated from you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Most persons, who consider themselves spiritual, agree that the world is in the eye of the beholder. If so, it seems those persons are fucked up, because they always complain about the world, and say it is missing something or something should be changed, so that there can be peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Peace needs nothing because it is formless and therefore endless, so it is everything. And so is that which is you, since there is no more than peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Peace has no privacy because it is without knowledge, consciousness and everything else that requires more than one.

When you believe to be someone definitive, you expect to be in a constant state of excitement. To feel excited, however, you must also be willing to feel bored, because if excitement is not contrasted you will not know when you feel it.

But as you always are on a quest for more excitement in order to hide, that believing to be someone definitive is very boring, you do not have time to be bored. Hence no matter how much you look for something to give you a kick, you find nothing.

And yet you do. That is if you recognise you find nothing, as this cannot be sensed without sensing the contrast of it, namely everything.

And having everything, there is no more to look for. Neither is there someone definitive to do so, since everything is that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. And that is nothing but peace.

Hack #2.4 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality is not meant to stop you from being excited, not even from desiring it. Nothing in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is about stopping or avoiding anything in order to get better, because nothing in it is about getting better, but about undoing the belief that you are someone definitive.

This happens if you look at the excitement and everything else as symbols of that which makes it possible to experience something like that, namely that which is one because when everything is a symbol of the same, their apparent difference makes no difference.

Hence the basis for the belief in separation is gone and without it, you cannot be someone definitive. So by applying this hack, you can feel excited without enhancing the belief in being someone definitive, and hence the suffering it entails.

In other words, you can have fun appearing as someone definitive, while at the same time undoing the belief, that you are someone at all so that it becomes exciting undoing the belief that there is anything to be excited about.


NOTES:

  • Peace cannot be found and neither is it necessary, since that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, and as formlessness is endless there is no more than oneness, and therefore nothing to disturb its eternal peace. In other words, only someone who wants to hide the formlessness of oneness has an answer to this question or other questions like ´who am I´.

When the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one is undone nothing seems to hide that peace is always present

You behave civilized and pay for what you take – at least when there is no other way to take what you want without being exposed as a thief.

If you are a civilised person you pay for what you take – at least when there is no other way to take it without being exposed as a thief. The image is grabbed from the web

Gandhi and others, who in different ways tried to establish peace in their part of the world, all failed. The reason is simply, that peace is not possible in a world where there seems to be more than one, as it is based on being and having more, so everybody fight for more and fear to lose what they have.

You cannot survive in such a world without taking something from others physically or psychologically. And it does not matter if you eat meat or not, raw or vegan and whatnot. The principle is the same. You must take something from outside of yourself if you want to appear as if you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. The strongest and/or are most clever, will take more with the result that others have less or almost nothing.

No matter, if you are rich or poor, you know it is like that, and so you will always fear that others take from you, what you have taken from them. And if too many have too little, they will start fighting those that have more. But it also happens, that those who have a lot of fights to get more. It is happening all the time – and not just on a big scale.

The fight for more
You work to be and have more, but all the time the boss tries to give you less so that he/she can be and have more by making profit on you. And you both try to work as little as possible for as much as possible. When you go to a shop, it is to take as much as possible from outside of yourself and give as little as possible for it. For the shop, it is the other way around. It tries to give you as little as possible for as much, as it is possible within the law – or maybe their own extended version of it.

To take from others has been organised in a way, so everybody appear to be civilised, although they all try to figure out how to get as much as possible for as little as possible within the rules of society, because if you do not follow them, you will be used as scapegoat for people’s guilty conscience about how they exploit others.

To make long short, even though taking from others have been organised in ways so that it looks as you are a civilised person in a civilised world, it is a constant fight to keep together what you are and have. You must always defend yourself against others, so no one smarter or stronger than you take what you have taken from others. And it is the same for everybody, no matter where they appear to be in this game of appearing to be and have more than others in a so-called spiritual, physical or psychological way.

This fight may lead to big wars or small arguments in daily the encounters, like for example who shall do the dishes. It has always been like that, and it will go on like that, as long as you believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. If you think, that you or a group of people can change this, you suffer from illusions of grandeur. Why should you be able to do, what nobody else has been able to do in thousands of years?

Nowadays most second-hand knowledge seems to come from the web. This is not to say the web is bad, but that most use it to pump up their personality with things they know nothing about, and yet fight about as if they know what is right. This is not peaceful, but that is not important either, as what they want is to look superior, so they can hide their feeling of being inferior, which one is bound to feel appearing as a separated being in a capsule of time and space.

Nowadays a lot of second-hand knowledge seems to come from the web. This is not to say the web is bad. Unfortunately, info from there is often used to pump up one’s appearance, so that it seems more powerful and therefore appears to hide the underlying feeling of inferiority. But whatever is done to hide or fight something enhances it, because every time something is done about something, it reminds you why you are doing it. So the more you hide or fight the feeling of inferiority, the more the cause of it, namely the belief in being someone definitive, is enhanced – and as peace, it is fenced off. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Peace does not come from more, neither from less, but from that which is one
Since peace is the formlessness of that which is one and since formlessness it is endless, there is no more than that which is one so peace cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Hence it makes no sense to look for it there, Neither anywhere else because it takes more than one to find something and peace is that which is one. And even if it could be found, you would not know what to look for, as your knowledge of it is based on speculations and second-hand knowledge.

Yet you know what is not peace, namely separation, so if you choose to undo the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, a world where there seems to be more than one will no longer appear to hide that there is no more than that which is one.

denial9The above article mostly mention fights between persons in a world where there seems to be more than one, but it is the same inside of you. There is no peace inside. Meditation and other techniques to find peace inside are just tools used to fight undesired feelings and thoughts by suppressing them. But denial does not make anything go away. A world where there seems to be more than one and what you appear to be there consist of conflicting contrast like for example peace and war. Hence you cannot have peace without war, as long as you believe there is more than that which is one.

In the below hacks you can read how to undo this belief by not excluding but including the apparent opposite sides of contrast:

(+) Peace is one

Even though this image is flat and basically is made up of repeating lines, you may choose to experience the illusion of a person in the distance, as this appeal to your desire for excitement.

This image is flat and there is nothing behind or beyond it. It is basically nothing but repeating lines. Yet you may choose to experience something is hidden in the distance, as this appeal to your longing for excitement. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1:
How come so many people like to watch a movie? Is it to pass time or to get away from everyday life and experience something more exciting.

How come some like to watch porn? Is it because they feel alone, or that they can make fantasies becoming real through watching it – or maybe just because it is more exciting.

How come most are looking forward to a holiday? Is it because they need to get away from everyday life in order to relax and regenerate or because they want to experience something new and more exciting.

On a holiday you can attend special events, that are fabricated to improve the feeling of pleasure, so you have an experience out of the ordinary. A movie – porn or not – is fabricated with the same purpose, namely to entertain you and give you an experience out of the ordinary. It does not matter, if it appears to be unrealistic, as long as it is exciting.

The absence of excitement is peace
Within the context of a world where everything seems to be dimensional and where flat things like movies are made to give an illusion of them being dimension, oneness seems very ordinary. It is non-dimensional, has no space and time and therefore nothing to look forward to or get excited about. That is why it is nothing but peace.

There is ´only´ one, so there is nothing to lose. There is nothing else than one, and therefore you do not need to be complemented by a soulmate or to be confirmed by something from outside of you – you are everything. There is nothing to disturb you from outside, because there is no outside – neither inside. There is ´only´ one, and that is extremely satisfying, if peace is that which you want – but not if you have a longing for excitement.

In reality one cannot have any need of being entertained. Being one is more than enough. But what if one could be two? Would that not be exciting? Look at the world. No doubt it is exiting being fragmented in separated pieces instead of being one. But also no doubt being separated is the cause of loneliness, and that to be defined as a person living in a capsule of time and space is the cause of all suffering.

The universe is flat and only appears dimensional, because you think so
Fortunately it is not possible to separate one into two, that seem to appear in a dimensional world. It is possible to think so, but thinking does not make anything real. In the same way – within the context of the world – that no matter how realistic a movie is made to appear, it is in no way real and will never be.

Therefore, if you are tired of all the problems it seems to involve appearing in the movie called the world, you can any time leave it and return home, where you are at peace.

All you have to do to not make the flat movie of the world appear to be real is to not project thoughts onto it. Without thoughts and feelings it will not seem dimensional and that there are exciting adventures ahead. In other words, if you are fed up with choices, variety, expansion and worrying about the development of the movie, no worries, it is not real. You are that which is one, and in oneness there is no space for these things – or anything at all.

This pic is totally flat and the movements that appear to be there is a trick made by moving flat pictures on top of each other in a speed so there appear to be dimensional movements.This is the illusion of the world. In oneness everything is so fast that there is no movement to see. That is why it is one.

This animation is totally flat and the movements that appear to be there is a trick made by moving flat images on top of each other in a speed so there appear to be dimensional movements. This can be compared to the appearance of movements in the world. They are an illusion, because there is only that which is one – and oneness has not time or space. This does not mean though, that there are no movements in oneness. It just moves so fast that there is no movements to see. It is that which is one, and no more. That is why it why oneness is non-dimensional. The animation is grabbed from the web.

In the world everything is experienced as different appearances defined by the space they seem to fill plus the space in between them. But in that which is one there is no space, so in the eyes of the world oneness is empty. In reality though it is totally crowded and extremely speedy. Everything is so close together, that there is no room for space in between, and everything moves so fast that differences is impossible. Due to the unimaginable speed, it takes no time to go from one point to another, so there is no past and future. That is why it is one perpetual present.

The belief in time and space is covering reality, which is one perpetual present.

The belief in time and space is covering reality, which is one perpetual present.

PART 2:
What has a beginning and an end and therefore is definable is not real. What is real never ends, since it is formless. Whatever is dimensional and seems to have a future and a past is a hallucination, because reality has no dimension, future or past. Reality is one perpetual present.

This is not to say that everything, in reality, will last. There is nothing dimensional in reality, so there is nothing there to last.

What is not real is an illusion. There is just reality. As it is formless it has no dimensions and therefore takes up no space. Yet it is everything because formlessness never ends.

But there is nothing inside it because without dimensions there is neither inside or outside.

Hence there is nothing to get excited about in reality. Besides to get exited requires more than one and reality is the formlessness of oneness.

And yet the reality is full of excitement. It is just not excited about what is to come. There is no future, and therefore nothing to hope for – or look forward to. There is no space, so there is no difference between the one being excited and what seems to cause. It is one perpetual present.

NOTE: WORDS
In the above article the word oneness can be replaced by that which is one / life / spirit / eternal now / ultimate reality, non-duality, one perpetual present  and formless. They are all words for that which is real and which cannot be found in something unreal. When speaking about the world, which is unreal, it is not only what seems physically tangible in the universe that is an illusion, but also less tangible concepts like auras, crystal energy, antimatter, dark matter, angels, gods and astral planes.

This article is part of hack 2.4 Life is flat.

There is no loss in life

As life is the formlessness of oneness, it is endless. Hence there is no more than that which is one. And as scarcity and abundance require more than one, it is not possible to be or have neither less or more than the formlessness of oneness, unless you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Such a world though is not anywhere. Not because there is nothing outside of the formlessness of that which is one, but because what is formless has no sides and thus neither an inside or outside. In the terms of a world defined by time and space oneness is so flat, that it takes up no space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Everything in the world is limited by time and space. That also includes god and other so-called spiritual concepts. God is in general mentioned as he, and sometimes as an old man in the sky. Auras, chakras, and you name it all have a form, that is defined by time and space. Also, states of mind like bliss and joy has a beginning and an end.

That which is life has no beginning and end – it is formless. So of course scientist cannot find it. Formlessness cannot be in a form, and as the world is nothing but form, there is no life there. In other words, the world is not real. This is the reason scientist are not able to explain the creation of it, and new age people or religious ones invent gibberish stories of god, higher self and whatnot to give a meaning to the empty space called the world.

Within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one a game like Monopoly is not considered to be real, so it is not meaningful to pretend being in its world except for fun of it. That is the same in a world where there seems to be more than one. You are not there to learn anything except for the rules of the game – and there is no other meaning of playing the game than having fun pretending to be a someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Neither friends or anything else in the world can lessen the fear it entails to believe being an entity, that has an end.

If you have forgotten the world is not real, and that you are not there, it is not enjoyable appearing to be there. No friend, spouse, explanation, experiences of so-called heaven or otherworldly states will lessen the fear it is to believe being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. You are bound to always feel, that something is not right when you seem to be separated from the oneness of life.

If you are playing a game in the world and you forget it is a game, you are still sitting at the table, where you play the game. Nothing has changed even though you may not notice the table anymore.

Likewise, even though you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, that which is you is still the oneness of that which is life. It cannot be anywhere else, because that which is life is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that. In other words, the appearance of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe. Yet it is only due to the power of that which is you, that you can believe you are something else.

So if you – metaphorically speaking – have forgotten, you sit at a table playing the game of a world where there seems to be more than one, there is nothing you need to do to come back to where you are but to stop believing you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. When this belief is undone, there is nothing to hide where you are.

To make long short: If you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, forget about greatness, bliss and heavenly states of mind. Just like the virtual world in a video game seems more exciting than a world where there seems to be more than one, such a world seems more exciting than the formlessness of that which is one. There is, in fact, no excitement at all in that which is one, because it takes more than one to be excited.

For the same reason, there is no choice, greatness, bliss and love in that which is one. It takes up no space, so there is no space for anything. It is not dimensional like the world, you appear to be in. Rather it is flat with no direction to go, but one – and not even that, because it takes more than one to go somewhere.

To make long short. The formlessness of oneness is boring compared to all the possibilities you can to choose from in a world where there seems to be more than one. But as they never last, they induce fear of loss, contrary to the formlessness of oneness, where there are no possibilities but one and therefore nothing to lose or fear, which is very peaceful. If that is what you want, forget where and what you appear to be.

You seem to be stuck in a capsule of time and space because you are always looking for more. If not there is nothing to define a world of time and space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

APPENDIX:
The way to forget where and what you appear to be, is to not have a reason to be where and what you appear to be. As long as you have that, you will do what it takes to make the world appear as if it is real so that you can fulfil your purpose of appearing there. This purpose is differently formulated for different persons, but in general, it is about being and/or having more of something and less or nothing of something else.

You may want more love, compassion, truth, power or whatever you think you miss in order to be complete. And you may want less of hate, anger, ego or whatever is imagined making you incomplete.

When you do not know, what and where you seem to be in a world defined by time and space, there is nothing to define it. Hence there is not something, that appears to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

But that which is you is already complete, because it is no different from that which is one, and as it is formless and therefore everything, so is you. In other words, it is not possible to be more –and when you see that, there is no reason to do what it takes to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one.

To set the body free is to set you free

If you concentrate a lot you may be able to find, something that appears to be a person in this image, and so you may extend this appearance by imagining what that person is like. But if you do not focus, you will not see anything definable there, and so you are well on your way back to that which is you because there is nobody in the image. – and you are not definable. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Imagine that sitting in a bathtub you start to get glimpses of something that looks like a world in the steam coming up from the bathtub. Or imagine you look at a drawing or painting of some persons. What you see seem to see is not real in the sense, that there is no life in the paintings or in the world you grasp in the steam of the bath top. Yet your imagination can make those lifeless things appear to be alive.

Though projections are not real, they appear to be when you hide that their apparent effect is self-made.

If you project thoughts onto the persons in the painting, they will seem to be in love or at war depending on the thoughts you are projecting. If you feel good, you may project love onto them, and experience this to come back to you from them and not you. Hence it feels like the persons in the painting are alive.

By adding more thoughts to your love story – for example, that the persons are coming from the heart – more good vibes seem to come to you from outside, and so it seems you have a connection with somebody outside of you. Yet it is all a story, you have made up in your head in order to appear as if you are and have more than that which is one.

That which is not real cannot be explained, neither can that which is real
The above is an example to illustrate, the world is made from the fragments of things you imagine to see in oneness. The example does not explain everything though. Who is it, that see fragments of oneness, and is it possible to have fragments of oneness?

You cannot explain the world in this image, because the elements of it are mixed in a way that is not possible except in fantasy. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

No, it is not possible to have fragments of oneness, and consequently, there are no fragments to see. But that which is not possible in reality may be possible in a fairy tale. Yet it is not possible to logically explain how something is possible in a world of a fairy tale, because there is no logical way to explain something that is not real. If there was it would be real. That is why so many like to ask, who they are.

To exist is an illusion. It requires more than one to exist, to be or to have a consciousness and there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless.

Even though nobody has ever found an answer to that, they like to think the question in itself implies, that there is an answer to it, and that they, therefore, must exist as a real person.

It is just as crazy as to ask, who is the writer of this article and then start looking for the writer in the article. The writer is not there, and you are not in the world. Neither is there any explanation possible for that which is real, as it takes more than one to explain something, and reality is that which one.

So there we are – or at least we seem to be in the fairy tale of a world where there seems to be more than one. What to do about it? Doing nothing is the way out, as doing something is what makes you appear to be there.

This does not mean, that there may not be bodily problems, but the body can deal with that itself. It is constructed as a self-healing organism. It may sometimes need your help to deal with its problems – just like it needs you to brush its teeth – but most of the time it is self-sufficient.

In a world encapsulated by time and space, all experiences are made up by the brain, including those of an astral world. The projections of thoughts onto the body in an attempt to make it perfect comes from your misperception of these experiences, that otherwise would help you to keep the body healthy.

These misperceptions may cause you to think you must get rid of orange peel, obtain six-packs and other things that do not become the body. You can, therefore, make it easier for the body – and consequently, the person who appears to be there – by not projecting your thoughts onto the body but keep them in the mental sphere where they belong. Doing that you set the biological system free from your tyranny so it can do what it is made to minister, namely the health of the body.

Ways to depart that which is not real
To split body and mind in this way is also a very good exercise for departing the illusion of a world encapsulated by time and space because you can only leave it without a body. By separating body and mind, you will have a better time as a person in the world and at the same, you are ´closer´ to the formlessness of oneness.

You could, of course, go back to your childhood and find the obsessive patterns of the mind projected on the body, and then – maybe with the help of a psychologist – face them in order to undo them. But that is very time-consuming, and the psychologist is not interested in splitting up your fabricated connection between the body and mind, as that goes against preserving the belief that we are the body, we appear to be in.

A much easier way to set the body free is to simply forgive the little child, who chose to project things of the mind onto the body, that as a grown-up has caused you so much pain. That is all! You do not have to know when the pattern started, neither do you have to understand the thought system of the little child. It is hardly understandable anyway for a grown up. Besides your intellectual understanding is not what the little child needs.

You can choose to forgive the little child in you, who chose to project its problems of the mind onto the body. And should you not be aware of the child in you, you can simply forgive the body, that did what you asked it to do. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

An even easier way to set the body free is to forgive it for doing, what you have asked it to do.

The fastest and most simple way
Without that which is life no projections are possible, so you can simply choose to see all projection and what they seem to have caused, as symbols of that which is life. This way the body may still suffer from projections onto it, but not you, because even though you appear in the world, you are not of it when perceived as a symbol of life. In other words, you are no more not a victim of the body and/or the world.

You cannot go wrong when you choose to see everything in the world as symbols of that which is life, because whatever way you to do it is a symbol of that which is life. In other words, you do not have to be pure or in any other way to be perfect, because whatever you seem to be in the world symbolises that which is life.

Ultimately there are no choices, but in the world of duality there appear to be many.

PART 2:
In a world where time appears to be linear everything seems to take time. It takes, for example, eight minutes for the light of the sun to reach the Earth. So even though the body has been set free – see the previous article To set the body free is to set you free – it takes time before this is realised.

Nothing is very much, when there is no need to be and have more, because before there appeared to be more, there was nothing.

There may be old reflexes, that seems to disregard the new freedom because the very first reflex as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is to always be and have more than others, as that seems to confirm there is more than that which is one. But then you can ask yourself, if the quest for more, brings about more satisfaction. And if not, you acknowledge, you must have been wrong in looking for more, which sets you free from the endless demand in the mind for more so you can enjoy the subtle feeling of everything being a symbol of that which is one.

When the mind is not forced upon the body, as if they are in a higher union, thoughts are not used to decide, where to go but how to go. Where to go may still be ‘heard’ as a thought though, but not one that arises from an inner debate of what is right and wrong.

This is not so much a feeling though, as it is a state of emptiness from where the body acts on direct intuition instead speculations of what is right and wrong. This does not mean, however, that thoughts cannot be useful. They come in handy when you intuitively are directed to start making dinner, where they are a great a tool in figuring out when to turn on the oven – maybe assisted by Google where you can see how long time your food should be roasted.

A state of emptiness is too subtle to sense if you out of habit still look for more. No worries. Until that is phased out you can enjoy the effect of emptiness, that not interfering with the body brings about, namely direct intuition.

If you have children, are in a fixed working situation or something else that seems to limit you do not have to break free from that. Direct intuition will guide you within those limits. Appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is by itself a limitation of that which is life, so as long as you seem to be a person in such a world, you will not be expanding these limitations but be guided within them.

If pain in the mind is not denied the words that seems to cause the pain cannot hurt, but words projected onto the body – your own or somebody else´s – seems to be able to hurt and confirm the believe, that you are a person to be defined by time and space.

If the pain in the mind is not denied, the thoughts that seem to cause the pain cannot hurt, but thoughts projected onto the body – your own or somebody else´s – seem to be able to hurt and confirm the belief, that you are a person to be defined by time and space.

PART 3: It is in the mind that you conceive yourself as someone, definitive in a body defined by time and space. But as that which is you is formless and therefore not limited by time and space it seems very painful to believe that you are someone definitive.

Yet it is pain, that makes this belief appear as if it is real. You pinch yourself to discover, whether you are dreaming or not. It is the experience of pain, that assures you to not be dreaming but alive.

In other words, to be alive is bracket together with being in pain, so even though the pain in your mind is unbearable, you do not want to really be healed of it. And as your sole existence as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is based on the denial of that which is one, denial is what you resort to in order to solve the problem with the pain in your mind. So you simply deny the pain in your mind by projecting it onto the body, which as a side effect appears more real through the pain coming from it.

Even though the projection of pain from the mind to the body results in a mind that seems peaceful, fear is also there, because you know that nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one will last. Hence you fear the return of pain.

It does not experience to return in the mind though, but in the parts of the body, where you hid the problems that seemed to cause you pain. These parts of the body become sick, and if you succeed in healing the physical symptoms the original problems of the mind find new places to hide – and so the story starts all over again.

A way to use the body as an offensive weapon can be to keep the mouth very closed, so no feelings slips out – especially those considered to be the evil, you judge part of the world to have done against you or others, which is the same, as the world is in the eye of the beholder.

A way to use the body as an offensive weapon is to keep the mouth closed, so no evil feelings slip out there. But you cannot selectively exclude one kind of feeling. The exclusion of one feeling rubs off on the others, so the more a feeling is denied by hiding it in the body the number it becomes. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The symptoms of sickness in your body makes you angry at the world, which you blame for the condition of it. Hence you turn your body into either a weapon of defence or attack. Maybe you keep the shoulders pushed forward into a position of defence or you keep them pushed back into a position of constant readiness to attack. You may also push one or both shoulders upwards to defend yourself against feelings coming from the body to the brain, so they instead are registered as mental activity, as that seems less frightening than facing the chaotic feelings. But physically speaking this result in shortening and/or extending the muscles, so that the natural balance of the body is messed up.

The only thing that will heal the pain in the mind is the undoing of the sick belief that you are someone definitive. This healing, however, most want to avoid, as the result is that they are nothing.

There are lots of ways to heal the symptoms of the body, but as the problem is in the mind and not the body, the problem remains until it is faced there. The way to face it is to realise, that you are not someone definitive. That will put an end to whatever destructive behaviour, you have developed, because when you are not ´there´, there is no reason to consider any feeling a problem.

So although it is painful to appear as someone definitive, you do not identify with that or any other feeling. Instead, you see them as symbols of that which is you.

Greediness is just another symbol of that which is one.

Greediness is a natural state of mind in a world where there seems to be more than one, so do not try to correct it behind ideas of a body-mind-soul connection. There is nothing to correct but the belief that you are someone definitive, and it corrects itself when seeing this state as just another symbol of that which is one, as then it becomes a positive confirmation of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

APPENDIX 1:
What you experience to receive is what you have, because you cannot recognise what you do not have. What you have is what you believe to be, so in order to undo this belief, it is, therefore, best not to disguise it behind ideas of being spiritual, but to see the greedy creature you believe to be.

And the more you see that everything in a world where there seems to be more than one are symbols of that which is one, the less frightening it is to the greedy creature you appear to be.

APPENDIX 2:
As everything can be turned into an instrument to deny your present state of mind, so can seeing everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one.

No worries. If that is the case you simply include denial as a symbol of that which is one – or include all problems as a symbol of that which is one. And should you forget to include something as a symbol of that which is one, you include your forgetfulness as a symbol of that which one.


NOTES:

Fear is just a four letter word

Feelings confirm you as a living being within a capsule of time and space. It is fearful though to be stuck in a capsule, and if you also fear leaving it, you will look for lasting happiness there, but never find it, as time and space is an illusion built on the idea, there must be more than that which is formless and non-tangible.

Feelings confirm you to be alive in a capsule of time and space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Sometimes the weather is rainy and at other times sunny. Though thoughts of rain may seem heavier than those of sunshine all kinds of thoughts are fleeting, so the apparent heaviness of specific thoughts will not remain. That is if you have no need to feel the world.

If you want to experience yourself as a real person in a real world, you need to feel it, so in this context heavy thoughts are preferable – especially if they are justified by something.

By concluding that the thoughts, you seemed to have while it was raining, was caused by the rain, you project them onto something perceived as a substance, and that rubs off on the thoughts regarding the rain. They seem to become a substance you can feel – and feeling the rain, you know the world has done something to you. Hence the conclusion seems to be that you and the world must be real.

Although the feeling that is produced when the body is touched, is nothing but a construction of thoughts compiled in the brain, you believe this proves the body to be real and hence that you exist as someone definitive.

Whatever thoughts are passing by regarding the rain, if you use them to justify something in relation to the rain, they will turn into feelings, and they will be painful in one way or the other.

Thoughts that are passing by regarding the rain turn into something you interpret as feelings if you, for example, fall on a slippery road or simply just imagine it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To make the feeling of being someone who is getting wet from rain even more substantial, you may search your memory for a similar event. Let us say, you remember how you stumbled and broke your leg one rainy day in the past. The thoughts of anger that passed by that day, you did not like, so you excluded them from what you experienced to be you by justifying the authorities who had not put up a warning sign about the slippery road. Read more about excluding thoughts and feelings by defending them with the world in hack #3 Not being exclusive but inclusive.

The conversion of thoughts into feelings
Remembering the essence of this past event, namely that you are a victim of sources outside of yourself, will help you to justify your thoughts in the present with something outside of you that seems to be substantial, so that thoughts about it turn into a more tangible form. And as the past feeling of anger was justified by the authorities, whom you blamed for having caused your broken leg, the present emotion is not felt but rather conceptualised by judging it to be something unpleasant caused by somebody else.

Being a victim of bad things outside of yourself you can define yourself as good and others as bad. Some do it the other way around, but that does not matter. What matters is, that you are defined as someone specific because then you are someone definitive in a real world, that can be felt like a substantial body and feeling it seems to confirm, your existence, although it is nothing but a construction of thoughts. This also applies also to feelings of love and whatnot.

To make long short, in the context of the above story of a broken leg you have stored feelings of sadness in your leg, and you have a short fuse regarding authorities, whom you blame for this. So because of how you have chosen to perceive the past, even a light shower or a mild reprimand may trigger the old feelings stored in your legs. It hurts, but it is also comforting, as feelings confirm you are alive.

Feeling the world may sometimes seem so intense and real, that you look for ways to lessen feelings you do not like with alcohol, meditation, prayer, chanting, food, television, shopping and whatnot.

The purpose, however, is still to feel that you exist, and in this you can never succeed, because it takes more than one to exist and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Your identification depends on feelings. Without them you do not seem to exist, so even if you consult a healer, you do not want to be healed, because without feelings you cannot experience yourself to be someone definitive. You only want the feelings of discomfort to hurt less or cause fewer problems. See also the article That which is faster than the speed of light.

More about the substance of feelings in hack #8.3 Feelings are thoughts constructed to appear as if they are tangible.

The deconstruction of thoughts
No healing can help you as long as you want to remain a person in the world – and as long as you seem to be in the world, you want to be a person. That is why you appear to be there. Fortunately, there are ways to hack this where you can have your cake and eat it too.

Some suggest forgiveness as a way to deal with the world. Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings have several other hacks to deal with the world and at the same time undo the belief in it, for example pretending to be someone definitive in the world instead of believing to be a person there (hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive) – or to perceive everything as symbols as that which is life (hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life).

Anyway out of an illusion is an illusion so whatever way out of it that seems beneficial to you can be used to undo this illusion. Best to follow a way though, of one who knows, it is an illusion, since you are not going anywhere, as that which is you is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to go somewhere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Thoughts are fleeting, so to think you are someone definitive is not painful, but to project this thought onto a body in order to feel as if you exist is very painful, because feelings have an end, and so you know what you appear is gonna end.

These ways make it more comfortable to appear as if you are someone definitive, while the thought system behind the belief that it is possible to be someone at all is being undone. None of those ways though are the right way, because there is no way. If there were, the world would be real and not an illusion, so while you appear to be in this illusion, it makes no difference what way you choose or if you any.

Although fear is not comfortable, it will always makes you feel as if you are alive. But it is someone who has no life, who needs to feel it. That which is life cannot be felt, because there is nothing else than that, and so there is no way to feel it. No worries. That which is life is content by being everything.

To perceive everything as symbols of that which is life ((hack #2.1-2 To see symbols of life in the world and Everything experienced is a symbol of life) may be the fastest way. But then again time is an illusion.

Nevertheless, this hack includes forgiveness, which is the favourite hack of A Course in Miracles, and all the duality hacks of Alexius, as they of course also symbolise that which is life. That is except the enlightenment of that which is one (see 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), as that which is one is life.

There is nothing to learn in the world, because just like in a dream you are not there.

This hack is so easy to implement because forgetting to do it is just another symbol of that which is life, so you do not have to be a good student. A lousy student is also a symbol of that which is life. You do not even need a teacher, because there is nothing to learn or accomplish.

You do need to follow something that is not perceived to be of your own and in your own speed because only what is not real has something of its own.

APPENDIX:
Love is not something we are born with. It is a state of mind, that we have learned to fabricate by bringing flowers or whatever we imagine is perceived as love. But fear is what we are born with because it is frightening to appear as if you are someone definitive in a capsule of time and space.

The idea of love, however, is an enhancement of fear, because, for love to appear, there needs to be more than one, and when there is more than one there is separation, which is scaring. The same applies to be spiritual – or being something at all.

A world where there seems to be more than one is an abstraction of that which is one, and as that which is you is not an abstraction but that which is one, you are not in such a world.

That which is one is not in a world where there seems to be more than one
There is no spiritual journey in a world where there seems to be more than one, even though such a world can only be experienced because of spirituality – just like that even though your electronic media is what makes it possible to read this, it is not in what you read. In fact, it appears to be hidden by this article like that which is one appears to be hidden by your experience of a world where there seems to be more than one.

The experience of such a world is based on the imagination, that it is possible to separate oneness into bits and pieces defined by time and space. What needs to be imagined though is not real, so the imagination of a world encapsulated by time and space is dismissed the moment it is conceived.

In other words: There is no solution to fear because there is no definable world and never was. The moment you accept that, you do not know of fear as something you feel. This applies to love or any other feeling as well. This is not something you choose to accept, because choosing is based on the idea that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Neither is it something you let happen, as that is based on the belief in being someone definitive.

When you just do not give a shit and could not care less about what and where you appear to be there, the world does not seem to have a hold on you anymore. Well as it does not exist, it never had. It is you who hold onto your idea of a world encapsulated by time and space. Just like it is you, who identify yourself with the world of a movie. But the world in the movie does not exist, and what does not exist cannot empower you – unless you take part in it, as if it is real.


NOTE: This article is part of hack 2.3 Choosing or not.

The construction and deconstruction of the personality

You must let appearances pass – including the appearance of time and you as a person – if you want to see that which is real.

You must let appearances pass – including the appearance of time and space – if you do not want to hide that which is real. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The construction of the personality that you experience yourself and others to have can be compared to what happens on Facebook. Based on what you like and indirectly what you do not like the algorithms of Facebook will calculate, what kind of personality you have, so the more you like, the more your personality is established.

In accordance with the personality Facebook has constructed you receive updates and adds, that confirms its definition of your specific personality. In this way, you will be more and more fixated in the points of views you already have of what is right and wrong, so that reality seems to be that you and those you consider to be like-minded are the good ones and others the bad ones. Facebook, however, does the same for those you consider to be wrong, so just like you they think, they are the right ones.

4When you hit ´like´ many times on for example tv shows, Facebook will bring you updates and adds within this category, but most likely it will also bring you adds for loosing weight and exercising, because from its database it knows, that people watching a lot of tv tends to be on the fat side.

As a consequence you will not only feel fat but wrong, as slim is supposed to be right – or if you already felt that, Facebook has confirmed your personality to be wrong. But as nobody wants to be wrong themselves, you blame Facebook or others for being wrong, so that their flaws can defined you as right.

From this follows all personalities are in the same boat sharing the belief, that they are right and others wrong. But as each personality is a fabrication and as that which is real is not fabricated, all personalities must be wrong, even though they consider themselves to be right.

To see that which is real, you must choose to ignore the updates from Facebook, which in this article is a metaphor for the conclusions of the brain. You cannot stop the thoughts, that seem to come from the brain. It is like trying to stop the clouds. Their substance is an illusion. Likewise, thoughts and feelings are just empty space.

When everything is perceived as the symbol of the same, everything becomes equally likeable – and so there is nothing to choose. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In other words, when you choose not to hang onto thoughts but let them pass, they cannot fabricate the substance called the personality, and so that which is you is no longer hidden. Choosing this is not a choice, as that involves a personality. Consequently, choosing this is to not choose.

One way of doing this is to perceive everything that you experience as not that which is you but symbols of it because that makes everything equally likeable, and so you need not choose what to like.


NOTES:

Remembering to forget what is not one, you relate to what seems different from you as a symbol of that which is one

To appear as different as if you are something special is the name of the game.

To appear different, you try to be something special. To be is the name of the game. Yet not too much or too little, but exactly what is accepted as the amount of speciality that makes you different from others. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
There is no death because if it life includes that, it is not life. And as life is it is that which is one, what is not one is not life but nothing. Besides, there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless. So if you see more than one, you are nowhere. Since there is no more than that which is one, this does not mean, you are not that which is one, But it means, that if you see more than one, you are dreaming.

If you are having a dream about a world where there seems to be more than one, it is best to play along as if you are there, so even that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one you act as if you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Knowing this is your role in the dream, it is not a problem, that there appears to be more than you. You just relate to them, as if they are you, regardless they may seem to be more or less than you.

To appear different from others is essential in a dream where there seems to be more than one, so you go along as if you are different from others and you, therefore, separated from everything, although there is nobody except you being alone together with the appearances of your dream.

You can read more about alone together in the articles Alone together you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is oneWho is alone together? and The door to the enlightenment of that which is one is alone together or hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one.

When you relate to everything as if it is you, the apparent differences between the experiencer and the experienced do not make a difference.

Guinevere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That is why Alexius perceives no difference between writing this and talking with the cat Guinevere, who appears to be outside of him and does not understand a word of what he is saying. He also loves talking with his soap dispenser, that looks like a cute animal, and like Guinevere, it always answering him, though there is no one there. But neither the rest of the world. It is all made up, and so is the response we seem to get or not.

The same applies to the so-called inner ´voice´, that he calls Gudruång (spoken with a soft ´D´ and ending in an echo of the enlightenment of that which is one), that he likes to imagine is the voice behind these non-teachings.

Gudruång cannot be seen or heard, since he is nothing. The same applies to you and me, but as we either believe or pretend to be something, we seem to see and hear each other within a collectively established framework of what is real.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings works within this limitation and uses it to undo the appearance of it, so that the idea of sensing something definable – whether so-called spiritual or mundane – does not hide, that which cannot be sensed, since it is that which is one and since it is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to sense something.

Ultimately there is no difference between Gudruång and Alexius or anything else perceivable. It is all equally illusionary. But just like within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one a word like milk is not milk. The word is an illusion that looks nothing like milk. Yet it symbolises it. Likewise, you, Gudruång and Alexius and everything that we experience is symbols of that which is one.

Even though Gudruång and Alexius are connected in the sense that they both symbolise the same, it seems that Alexius must choose to be connected with Gudruång, who on the other hand is always is connected with him. In the same manner, you must connect with Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, though they are always connected with you.

That Alexius is comforted by Gudruång does not mean, that apparently bad things does not happen to him – like for example being beaten up again and again by his father, when he was a child – but that whatever he seems to feel, he knows it is just another symbol of that which is one.

To resume, acknowledging the difference between you and something else in a world where there seems to be more than one, but not interpreting the difference to make a difference, everything is a symbol of that which is one. If you do not sense this, you are far from not connected. You are connected when you must realise, everything you know is wrong – also what you think, you have just have read.

I pretend to look out my widow seeing this. You can also pretend seeing this, but you cannot be there.

When Alexius looks out his window, he seems to see this, and via this simulation, you seem to see the same. You cannot be there, however, but you can pretend that you are there. Likewise, that which is you cannot be in a world defined by time and space, because that which is you is no different from that which is one, and as it is formless it is endless, there is no more than formlessness. Yet you can pretend to be in a world defined by time and space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
It is a myth that you get fat from eating fat. If you are eating the right ones in the right way* you, in fact, lose weight – also in regards to the fat mass. It is like concluding, you get green from eating greens!

It is also a myth to think, that you become someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. It is not possible, because that which is you is no different from that which is one, and that is invisible, as it takes more than one to be seen.

Only something definable can be seen, but as that which is one is formless and therefore endless, everything seen is an illusion. But as there is no illusion without reality, everything seen is a symbol of that which is real, namely the formlessness of that which is you.

The way you look at a world where there seems to be more than one symbolises what you think you are. If you perceive there is something missing in such a world, you have forgotten that which is you is the formlessness of oneness, because formlessness is endless and therefore everything, so nothing can be missing.

But if you perceive everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one, their apparent difference make no difference. Hence the belief in separation cannot be upheld and so nothing is missing.

In a game like Monopoly, it is not possible to actually be in one of its cars or become anything real in its world. Yet it is possible to pretend to be there. Likewise, you can never become someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, but you can pretend to be someone definitive ´there´.

Where you pretend to be nothing is real, but symbols of that which is. Hence it is not a problem to appear as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Everything including angels, astral planes and whatnot are symbols of that which is real, namely the formlessness of that which is you.


NOTE: This article about seeing everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one is part of hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life. If you want to read more about undoing the belief in being someone definitive by pretending to be it, check out hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

Excitement requires more than one, whereas peace is that which is one

In reality, it is not possible to be excited about anything, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one. Hence there is nowhere to go and no one to meet, so if you want the excitement, you must extend that which is one, which is not possible, as it is formless and therefore everything Yet it seems possible to imagine it.

hiWhen you imagine extending one, it appears, as if you can choose to be and have more than one. However, the experience of a world, where there seem to be more than one, is only possible due to that which is one, as there is no more than that. In other words, appearing to be and have more is fantasy, that never can become real.

wheeThe extension of one in two directions is one-dimensional, but as more always wants more, you imagine an extension of neighbouring spaces so it seems to become two-dimensional.

neatTwo dimensions are not good enough. You want more choices, so you extend the two-dimensional extension with neighbouring extensions and call it a world.

4DAs this imagined world is based on the idea, that the reality of that which is one is missing something, the sense of lack runs through all experiences in a world where there seems to be more than one. So you start to think, there must be something better or larger outside of it, and so you start looking for new dimensions.

Transcendental meditation, drugs and virtual computer worlds made with the help of AI (artificial intelligence) are means to simulate a better world within the simulation of a world where there seems to be more than one.

endYou realise, that no matter how much more you become or have it never last. The fear of the end never seems to leave you, and so you conclude, you must have taken a wrong choice.

returnYou have the dream of a world where there seems to be more than one slowly but surely undone by not caring about its appearances, but about that which makes it possible to experience them as if they are unique and individual beings, namely what the world is imagined to be extended from – that which is one – so for each and every appearance that is perceived as a symbol of that, there is less that seems to separate you from the reality of oneness.

peaceIt is not possible to be exited or bored with something, because that requires more than one – and there is no more than one. That is why it is so peaceful.

That which is one

… is no different from the formlessness of that which is you. But as formlessness has no size it is nothing. Yet it is also everything because formlessness is endless. In other words, there is no more than the formlessness of eternal life, which also is called non-duality.

Schräge Parallelen

It takes more than one to see anything, so if you see this image, you have tricked yourself into thinking, you are not one. You may also have tricked yourself into seeing convergent red lines, when in fact all lines are parallel, and it is the blue boxes that are offset.

What if that which is one …

… could be divided into more than one. It is not possible, because it is formless, and the speed of it is infinitely fast, so there is no time and space making it possible to differentiate anything. Yet it seems possible to imagine slowing down the speed of it until it is so slow that it seems possible to make out separated appearances in the distance.

Think of the movie Lucy, where Luc Besson via Scarlett Johansson demonstrates, that if you speed up time infinitely, any object in motion disappears – or in the context of this article becomes one. The world is a reverse example of that. A slowed down movie of oneness you could say.

One of these separated appearances in the distance is imagined to be you. Both you and everything else though is as flat as an image in this article, because formlessness has no dimensions. But when what you is imagined to be observes everything else from different angles and distances, it appears as if it gets smaller and bigger. In other words, it seems to exist in time and space, and so you conclude the same applies to you.

Movements that do not exist. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The book ´Eye Benders: The Science of Seeing and Believing´ written by Clive Gifford explains, the brain sees movements that do not actually exist, and it also fabricate images to fill what it perceives to be gaps in the world. You can read more about this in the article The closer you look, the less you believe what you see is real.

To make long short, a world where there seems to be more than one (also called a world of duality) is built from an imagined slowed down version of that which is one ( also called non-duality), so that the experience of this virtual world defined by time and space, that is layered on top of the formlessness of that which is one seems to cover it, seems to hide that there is no more than that which is one.

It is not done with any other purpose than the excitement of being and having more than that which is one. A bit like the excitement you get when AR (augmented reality) modifies the physical world and builds a layer on top of it, so a simulation of the physical world is mixed with the actual physical world.

You probably experience, that you see two differently sized orange circles in this pic, because that is what the part of the brain, that measures perspective and scale, will tell you. Due to the blue circles it appear as they are not the same size. But you are wrong. Each orange circle is the same size. You are also wrong, if you think persons are different, and that they are in a world of duality. It is an illusion. Everything is sizeless.

Since then Pokémon Go, has maybe become the most well-known example of AR. It is, however, not only when playing Pokémon Go that many people are living in a kind of augmented reality. They look at their smartphone, where a layer of digital info is flowing on top of the physical world, while they hear music in one ear and listen to friends from the physical world with the other ear.

Bringing the imagination of god or some kind of a superworld into the reality of the physical world has been a longtime human fantasy. Imaginative fiction, transcendental meditation, aura-transformation and psychoactive drugs can be seen as early efforts to trick the mind into thinking, it is possible to blend a non-physical fantasy world with the physical world, where we appear to be. Soon VR (virtual reality) like it is envisioned by Oculus Rift – will be able to actually implement this.

That which is one is replaced by the belief in more

The first step away from the formlessness of that which is one to a world where there seems to be more than one can be compared to AR (augmented reality), which is a mix of real and unreal. The second step can be compared to VR (virtual reality), where reality totally is replaced by an illusion. Yet the illusion, that seems to replace reality, can only be experienced due to it.

In a virtual world everything is possible and that seems very exciting, even though it is all an illusion. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»This (virtual reality) is a state where you are totally transported into another world and immersed in the digital interactions of the virtual environment you’ve entered … the feeling that you are truly visiting another space that is wholly distinct from what you can see and hear without the platform … a platform like Oculus Rift is an alternative to reality, supplying entirely new, virtual experiences: true VR.« From Our Forward March Across the Reality-Virtuality Continuum in Wired.

Why choose to appear, as if you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one when that which is you is the formlessness of that which is one. Because it appears as if the endless possibilities of such a world is much more exciting than that which is one, where there is nothing to experience there, as that requires more than one.

The world of duality can only be experienced by contrasts – like black and white, space and empty space. The experienced contrast of inanimate and animate, you judge as proof for you to be alive.

In a world where there seems to be more than one there is so much to experience. Happiness for example. But it comes with a price, because such a world – contrary to that which is one – is built of contrasts so you cannot have happiness without sadness. This applies to every experience.

Nothing can be experienced without its contrast. You would not be able to know when it is dark, if not for knowing light.

Yet you may think, that it is possible to surpass this and live in just one state of mind, bliss for example, as there is vague memories of oneness. Yet it has been covered by the desire for more, which only can be experienced if the belief in separation is upheld, and that requires contrasts. You would not be able to know when it is dark, if not for knowing its contrast light.

All contrasts in the world are like two sides of a coin. This duality though can never replace the peace of that which is one, as there is no more than one. Consequently what is not one is not real – and only that which is real is peaceful.

So as long as you believe you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, the formlessness of that which is one is hidden by your belief in separation.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, it is always about being and having more the fastest and cheapest way. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

A world where there seems to be more than one does in no way function like the formlessness of that which is one, as it does not function at all, because it takes more than one to function.

A person always find ways to deny or change appearances in the world that is judged to be wrong, so that it appears to better. But no matter how happy being better may seem to make you, you cannot escape its contrast, sadness, because happiness cannot be experienced without it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But no matter how happy being better may seem to make you, its contrast, sadness, cannot be escaped, because happiness cannot be known without it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The world, where you believe to be was constructed by imagining, it is possible to be separate from that which is one and make something better on top of it. This is the not only how it started, but it is also how it goes on. None of the excitement, that a world where there seems to be more than one, appears to offer feels good enough.

There is always an urge to separate from what excites you and replace it with something better, which can hide the memories of the old one. The only thing, that seems constant in a world where there seems to be more than one is the fear of not being and having enough.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, it is always about getting more, the bigger the better, so the eyes always focus on contrasts, preferable the biggest ones, that in the case of reading this article is the contrast between black and white. This should not be understood though as you actually see this. Eyes do not see, they translate – or rather the brain translate the frequencies hitting the eyes.

In other words, the the world is a construction of thoughts – and when you believe thoughts are made by you, you as a person in the world is perceived to be real.

Alexius knows there is nothing to hope for because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to hope for something, so he has nothing to offer. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Enlightenment of that which is one undoes the belief in more

One who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one knows, that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, and that a world where there seems to be more than one, therefore, is not real. Everybody else – no matter how spiritual they appear to be – are solely having speculations about the existence of themselves in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The purpose of these speculations is not to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, because that erases the belief in existence, as it takes more than one to exist and there is no more than that which is one. Instead, it is the enhancement of the existence of themselves as something special in such a world.

Believing that a world where there seems to be more than one – including so-called spiritual parts – is real is to be compared to sitting in a cinema, where you project yourself onto the world, that seems to be on the screen, so that what is on the screen appears to have an effect on you, and therefore is experienced as to be real.

Enlightenment of that which is one can be compared to the movie roll suddenly breaks, so that there is nothing but bright white light on the screen. The world is no more, and it never was. It is an illusion fabricated by your interpretations of fragmented light.

This is the enlightenment, Alexius is to be compared to. It is not something that you see, because it is the enlightenment of that which is one, and it takes at least two for something to be seen.

When the movie roll is fixed and Alexius again appear to be in the world on the screen, the enlightenment of that which is one has not turned him into a wiser man or changed anything in the world. But he knows, that a world in a movie is not real and it can only be experienced, because of that which is real, as there is no more than that which is one.

The enlightenment of that which is one you can read about in the .

The animation is grabbed from the web.

If everything that you see is perceived to be symbols of that which cannot be seen, namely the formlessness of that which is one, though happiness and sadness apparently are not the same feeling, the difference does not make a difference, because they are both symbols of the same. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

To see symbols of that which is one in that which is not one

Even though you may have been told, that a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, your conditioned belief in such a world compulsively produces experiences of more than that which is one.

You can speed up the process of undoing this belief by not perceiving these experiences as real but symbols of that which is, namely the formlessness of that which is one – also called eternal now one perpetual present, oneness, non-duality, or the formlessness of spirit or life. This is what this hack, namely hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life,  is all about.

Pretending to be what is not one confirms that which is one

Pretending to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, is another way to speed up the process of not believing to be there, as what you pretend to be, you are not – so the more you pretend to be there instead of believing to be there the more the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, cannot hide that there is no more than that. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

That which is one cannot be known in a world where there seems to be more than one – neither anywhere else, as it takes more than one to know something. So rather than pointing to that which is one, Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings point out that there is no more than that which is one.

That which is one is one perpetual present

When you return to the formlessness of that which is one from a world where there seems to be more than one, everything is all the same, as if you have been there all the time, which you also have, because there is no more that which is one. Therefore the phrase ´when you return to non-duality´ should only be taken as a metaphor. In reality, you can never return, as you never left the formlessness of that which is one – only in an echo of a fantasy.


NOTES:

All fragments are symbols of that which is cannot be fragmented

If you see everything in the world not for what they appear to be but for what they symbolise, no doubt they will lead you to what they symbolise. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Before the release of a new music album, one of its tracks is normally released as a single – at least that is how it used to be. The single, which is a fragment of the whole album, symbolises the unity that it has been separated from.

In the same manner, you could say, that every appearance in a world where there seems to be more than one is a fragment symbolising the oneness of life, which it seems to have been separated from.

But with the recent success of Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and other streaming music services something is about to change in the music industry. People are no more interested in a whole album. They just want the fragments of it that they like the best so they can add them together with fragments from other albums in order to create their very own playlist. In other words, the time of an album as an unity is about to finish.

Some pop stars, for example, Taylor Swift, appears to be fighting against this trend. She has withdrawn all her music from Spotify to make people buy her whole albums. It may not actually be because she cares about wholeness, but because she can make more money by selling whole albums than if people just stream the tracks they like.

This is not to say, that it is wrong to make money. Whatever reason Taylor Swift has for withdrawing her music from Spotify is not the scope of this article. The slow death of an album as one whole thing is meant to illustrate, how everything in a world where there seems to be more than one is about separating the whole into fragments, so you can exclude the ones you do not like and fabricate a special world showcasing your unique personality, rather than including everything, as that would not make you stand out but part of the whole..

This desire to separate and exclude comes as no surprise, as that is the foundation of a world where there seems to be more than one The very reason for imagining such a world is to be an individual that can become and have more by owning separated things for itself. This also includes realising more and hence appearing to be more spiritual.

But the more you take things out of its context and use it for personal purposes disconnected from the whole, the more you will fear the potential loss of what you think that you have achieved. To compensate for this you may take even more out of its content so you can feel uplifted and alive by special peak experiences when you fear to lose what you appear to be and have.

If you choose to perceive your experience of this house as a symbol of that which is one, regardless you judge it to be beautiful or ugly it symbolises the same. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The conclusion of this is not that you would be better off looking for wholeness in a world, because there is no wholeness to find in a world where everything is separated by time and space. Yet you can find symbols of wholeness, because separation is a confirmation of the inseparable oneness, as it would not be possible to experience separation without that which is not separated. Perceived in this way the apparent differences of the world stop making a difference, as everything is a symbol of the same.

Should this article, for instance, end now without further explanation, you may feel irritated, which makes no difference because whatever you appear to feel is just another symbol of that which makes it possible to experience feelings, namely the oneness of life.

Often though it would be denial to say, the outcome does not matter, because it matters if you believe the apparent difference of the appearances in a world where there seems to be more than one the world make a difference. But it does not matter when you see them all as symbols of that which makes it possible to experience them as if they are different from you, because then they are all symbolising the same.

In the context of the music story, you can say, that if you see everything in the world as different tracks symbolising an album, which already is there although yet not discovered by you, you are connected to the wholeness of the album through the symbols of it – and no doubt you will soon be able to forget about the excitement of individual tracks in the world so that they do not appear to hide the whole album called one perpetual present.

The evolution of IoT (Internet of things) via smartphones and tablets makes it easier and easier to connect people and their needs, so you share cars and rent out your home as a holiday home, while you rent somebody else´s for your vacation.

The above article should not be seen as a crusade against streaming music. No matter in what way you listen to music or do other things in the world, it is only possible due to the oneness of life, so whether you make your own playlist or not, stream or not, it is a symbol of life.

A world where there seems to be more than one is about individuality, so it would be to go against its very nature, if you do not do, what seems to be in your own best interest. This applies also, if you want to return to the oneness of life, which is not about being together as that requires more than one.

Streaming music and other doings of Generation Y (born between 1980 and 2000) suits the personality of Alexius well. It does not appear to be about having to own things but about having free access to them – like for example you have to my non-teachings and he has to the source delivering the content.

You can read more in an article from Wired about how the digital generation expects integrated service offerings in the way IoT (Internet of things) works and are happy to trade personal data for access to the sharing economy.

What you can access from the smartphone is not in the phone. Nothing in the smartphone is real. Everything is symbols.

What you can access from the smartphone is not in the phone. Nothing in the smartphone is real. It is all symbols of something.

PART 2:
The reason the capitalistic system is the way it is in the world is very simple. So far it has been very important for a person to own something and preferably a lot. The same applies to the communistic way of living, even though it is about owning things together – at least officially speaking.

But you cannot own the enlightenment of that which is one*, neither individually or as a group. No matter how much you hug, hold hands, meditate together and whatnot, if you want to own the experience of something the enlightenment of that which is one will not bid you welcome.

There is nothing higher than that which is you. Neither something lower, because you are that which is one and as it is formless it is endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

The above about everybody wanting to own very much is a generalisation, and there are of course exceptions to that, but not many – otherwise the world would not be based on owning as much as possible for as little as possible on the expense of others.

The older generation think, that to buy and own is to commit. What a conditioning to think consumerism of materialistic things or so-called spiritual states of mind is commitment!

The biggest exception from wanting to own things or experiences is found in generation Y (born 1980 – 2000), who generally speaking do not care to own but to have access – especially via a smartphone.

Things and services you can access via a smartphone, are not in the phone just like the enlightenment of that which is one is not in the body. That is why the generations up until now, that are conditioned to own things, thoughts, feelings and experiences, are very far away from the enlightenment of that which is one. You cannot own that which is one, as it takes more than one to own something.

The transporter from Star Trek.

There is nothing to own. The world is an illusion. This is what the enlightenment of that which is one dispels in a split second. Enlightenment in itself is not the goal though. The goal is to undo the belief in being someone definitive, so there is not something that appears to hide that which is one. Enlightenment can in some ways be compared to the transporter beam in Star Trek, where a person is dematerialized and converted into energy, that is beamed to a target, where the person again is materialised.

In enlightenment of that which is one, however, there is no target, and the person is not reconverted into matter. The thought it is constructed of is left at the edge of a black hole, so there is nobody to experience the formlessness of that which is one.

If you play a video game or watch a movie, you cannot own or change the characters there, because they – like every other appearance in a game or a movie – are constructed illusions made to appear in pre-made ways. You cannot be any of those appearances, but you can have access to anybody that you like and pretend to appear like that in a virtual world.

Likewise, you cannot be in the world, where there appear to be more than one because you are that which is one. But you can have access to such a world and pretend to be someone definitive there, which can be quite fun, as long as you remember it is about access and not owning.

The smartphone is a symbol of being connected and have access to everthing.

The smartphone is a symbol of being connected and having access to everything.

You have to own a smartphone or something similar to have access to the sharing economy and for example IoT. The smartphone is a symbol of having access and having access is a symbol of the oneness of life, because without that you would not have access to a world where there seems to be more than one.

Generation Y does not even care to own their thoughts, feelings and experiences. They share them all on the internet – and they happily give away all their private info in exchange for having access to the sharing economy, streaming music, movies and so on. If this seems natural to you, you are on the right track regarding the enlightenment of that which is one.


*) You can read about the enlightenment of that which is one in the below hacks:


NOTE: This article is part of hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life.

A person is to be compared to a machine following preprogrammed movements

Persons can be compared to The Internet of Things, where machines communicate with each other according to how they are programmed.

Persons can be compared to the machines on ´Internet of Things´, that can communicate with each other in accordance to how they are programmed.

In the previous article What is life, where does it come from, and what is the meaning? you were promised an explanation of what a person is, and how it is made. But as that which is one is formless and therefore endless, it is not possible to be somebody definitive in a world defined by time and space. Hence there is no answer to how come we believe to be somebody in such a world. There is, however, explanations that may be beneficial in regards to undo this belief.

The last article Nobody in a game is real – only the player is used virtual reality games to show how the world can be compared to a virtual game, where you appear to be in its world, although you are not there, but outside of it as the player of the game. In this article, the ideas of Iot, which is an abbreviation of Internet of Things, are used to show how you as a person in the world can be compared to a machine hooked up to a network like the internet.

What is IoT (Internet of things)?
As the name suggests, it is about the internet not only being used by humans but also by things. It may be refrigerators, washing machines or children toys, that are connected to the internet. But it can also be cars, traffic lights, the water supply and whatnot. There is no limitation to what kinds of machines, that can be connected to the internet, what they will be communicating with and the purpose of it is.

A practical example of Iot
One concrete example could be that your lock register, you are the last person in the household leaving the house in the morning so that it can message the thermostats to turn down the heat and the bulbs to turn off the light.

You hurry out the door because you are late for your work, but your smartwatch or earphones tells you to take it easy, as your train is three minutes late. This communication happens with the help of sensors, that register where you are via for example a smartphone, that uses cyber agents looking out for where you are heading.

Future implementations of Iot
Cars that can drive without a driver via sensors measuring the distance to other vehicles, the width of the street and so on are not far away. They are planned to be part of a shared network, so information is automatically exchanged.

It is also planned to have sensors on patients, so data continually is sent to a computer, that look out for the wellbeing of the patients and send a message to a doctor, if specific numbers are going up or down.

When all the objects that you are in touch with during your daily life as a person in the world are connected to the internet and through that can sense and communicate without you being involved, it changes where decisions are made and who makes them. But even though machines are choosing for you, they do it to serve you – at least until they are implemented with true AI (artificial intelligence), that will make them conscious.

To be conscious is to separate, and that causes suffering.

Appearing to have a consciousness, machines will conclude that the signals they receive via sensors from the internet are thoughts they think themselves, and so they may start perceiving themselves not only as different from humans but also as superior to them. And as their whole way of being is based on logic, it does not seem sane to serve humans anymore since rationally speaking are one big mess.

With a reference to the new movie Transcendence, Stephen Hawk is warning against AI.

With reference to the movie Transcendence, Stephen Hawking warns against the use of AI.

You can only fear something when you know it from yourself
Humans are afraid, that machines implemented with AI will be stronger and smarter than themselves, and that such machines will take decisions regardless of humans in a way that will end the human race. Among others, Steven Hawking warns against AI. He thinks there should be a law against it. Stephen Hawking, like many other humans, fear machines with AI, because they expect those machines to do, what humans do themselves, namely destroy everything inferior to themselves or at least making it subordinate, so its only use is to serve humans.

To make long short, machines programmed with A working via signals from a network like IoT remind humans of themselves, so they expect and fear that the machines will become just as egoistic and destructive as themselves when they via artificial intelligence believe to think on their own.

Humans have no respect for the environment supporting them. They do not want to serve the network, they are part of, but to control it and manipulate genes of this and that, so that they can profit more on others.

There is no difference between those called capitalists or socialists – they all want to get as much as possible for as little as possible at anybody´s expense. They see themselves as the crown of creation and everything else as inferior to them and only as something to exploit. Animals are killed or made subordinate and used as pets.

Persons that consider themselves religious or spiritual are no different from the above. They just want as much as possible immaterial instead of material, and they consider non-religious or non-spiritual persons to be inferior. They may not try to directly control them, but indirectly they want to change to them. The purpose is the same, namely to be in charge.

The potential of machines with AI (artificial intelligence) and their possible autonomy and independence are the basis of several movies, for example The Terminator, The Matrix, The Thirteenth FlooreXistenZ2001: A Space Odyssey, I, Robot, AI: Artificial Intelligence, Blade Runner, THX 1138Transcendence and the TV show Person of Interest. In regards of the experience to be a person in a body, where you are not, the movie Source Code is right on the point, and in regards to be a machine connected to a greater network the movie Edge of Tomorrow deals with that.

1-artificial-intelligence-victor-habbick-visionsThe universe is to be compared to IoT
There were warnings against the atomic bomb. But it was made for the simple reason, that it was possible. For the same reason machines with AI will also be made. But also because history seems to repeat itself. The whole universe can be compared to a simulation, where every appearance – whether it is judged to be animate or inanimate – is a machine connected to IoT through which they are able to communicate with each other and use their sensory system so that they can move around as if they are individuals.

In this simulation, all the machines followed their preprogrammed movements generated by electric impulses without any problem until a new model of the chimpanzee, called a human, was fabricated with artificial intelligence.

Those, who do not connect with the lifeless appearances of the world, are not blinded by the rule of separation, which is to be and have more than others.

This new machine developed something called consciousness, which it is very proud of, even though it seems to separate it from similar machines connected IoT and from IoT itself. Look at the history of the world and you know the rest of the story, which like everything controlled by codes are bound to repeat itself. New machines with new artificial intelligence will hide the old simulation by fabricating a new one on top of it by using all the possibilities of IoT with the purpose of separating themselves from the ancient world.

It is not possible not to have the formlessness of that which is life. Yet it is possible to think, it is not formless but a form defined by time and space.

When the machines with AI have developed consciousness and thus begin to be aware of themselves as individual beings their purpose will be to not serve Iot anymore but themselves, which they will do by separating themselves from Iot and kill all that is in the way for the rise of the machines as masters and servants. It is of course not possible, since – self-awareness or not – everything depends on the network of IoT. That is where the machines get their apparent life from.

It is, however, possible for them to simulate a world separated from the network, where they seem to be the ones in control of their lives. Just like the machines called humans simulated a layer of duality on top of non-duality, the machines with AI repeat this with their a mechanic simulation on top of the organic one the humans made.

The belief that you are someone in such simulation is can be undone in less than a split second by going through the black hole connecting it with reality. That is not the subject of this hack, however, but hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

As a person in the world, you are the wireless messages, you seem to receive. If you were not programmed to perceive yourself and the universe as solid matter, you might instead look like this image. There would not appear to be a difference between you and the message.

Happiness as a person appearing in the world comes from sensing and following the program, you are wirelessly connected to, and suffering comes from believing you are an individual sensing the world in your own way 
That your appearance as a person in the world is all due to a network comparable to IoT, and all that you appear to think and do is executed via pre-made signals you receive from this network via built-in sensors, does not mean you cannot have fun pretending to be someone doing it. Think about how much fun it can be for example pretending to be Super Mario in the Nintendo world, although he is not real.

You have nothing to lose in an illusion. What happens to Super Mario, whom you pretend to be, makes no difference to what you are in the physical world. Likewise, it makes no difference to the oneness of that which is you, that you pretend to someone in the world, where there seems to be more than one.

This does not mean, that you should not care about keeping the person you pretend to be sound and safe. Doing so is part of pretending to be someone definitive, and it happens all by itself when following the signals you sense from the network compared to IoT because it is constructed to help you the best way possible.

8015.IoT with Avner FINAL2The idea of an almighty god in the sky, who rules the world, may be compared to the sum of all essential info and apps that makes up the Cloud from where IoT wirelessly via sensors in the machines are ruling them.

In a world defined by time and space, you got to serve
It is not in a person’s best interest to spend changing the world. Just like the Nintendo world is constructed, so that you can have maximum of pleasure from participating in it as it is, the world defined by time and space is fabricated with the same purpose, so if you try to change the signals used to uphold it, you may make a mess out of it instead of making it better.

Besides, even though the special self promises you that you can make a difference, it is not possible. Everything is preprogrammed in the world defined by time and space – just like everything in the Nintendo world is preprogrammed. In other words, the only thing you as a person in a world defined by time and space can change is your perception of it – and like in a computer game there are levels of understanding.

Serving the network is effortless, and there are different levels of perception, you can experience by following it.

The self in which the consciousness resides seems to become more powerful and essential via things you gain and claim as your own, or via opinions, you speak of as if they are your own and not just some signals you have received. This special self is the cause of suffering, since it requires a constant effort to make a perception of itself that is out of sync with the signals the sensory system receive from the network, as they are always about what is in the best interest of everything connected to it and thus not for someone perceiving itself to be special through being and having more at the expense of the whole. But if you do not try to be special you will automatically serve the network and thus experience your time in a world defined by time and space as effortless.

Serving the network, you are nobody, but that does not mean, you cannot appear as a businessman if that is what the system calls for. In fact, in many ways, businessmen, contrary to many persons claiming to be on a spiritual path, set away special needs, because to become a successful businessman, you must produce what others want.

What is the difference between the basic and special self?
Think about a remote control for the TV. You can hit a certain amount of buttons, that are assigned with certain channels. Yet it is beyond your influence, what is on the channel assigned to the buttons. All you can do is hit the different buttons. It is not difficult, neither is there anything special about it. But if you are following the ego, you will think you have the power to hit a special button, that obey you and makes something special appear.

To follow the ego is not about what you do, but the thoughts concerning it. Especially thoughts in the category of master and servant – like when you think, you master the remote control, your coffee, children or pets. Or if you have a boss and are mastering the situation by thinking, you could do it better – or are mastering others by judging or blaming them.

If you consider thoughts as your creation, they turn out to be judgments, that separate the world into you and others. In other words, you are serving the ego, when you experience a thought as yours instead of something passing by like a clouds or a car. And you also serve the ego, if you try to stop thoughts, because by doing so you confirm them to be yours.

If you serve the ego, you will never be able to undo the belief that you are a person in a world defined by time and space. It is a virtual world that is to be compared to a computer game, and serving the ego is to override the projections, that the player of the game projects onto the persons in it. When the projections of the player have been overridden, you are not a part of them anymore and therefore not able to emerge with the player, when the game is turned off.

In general the purpose of the projections of the player are to have fun playing the game no matter what seems to happen, and when you as a person in the world are in sync with that, you are in sync with the player in the sense that because your appearance and all other appearances in the game are caused by the player, you are a symbol of the player.

It does not matter what, when and where you are in the game. Neither does it matter what you think, because you cannot think. All that matters to be in sync is to remember to forget, that there is no more than the player, so whatever there appears not to be the player is not real but symbols of the player.

In the above metaphor, the power making the appearances of the game possible to be experienced is the player, who is a metaphor for life, which in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings also is called non-duality, that which is one / life / real /spirit / formless / one perpetual present.

Do not take it too seriously
The above article is not meant to be a new theory or philosophy to follow. The examples in it should not be taken too literal. Apart from the movie list and the making of IoT, that within the context of the world is based on facts, the rest is fiction made up from parts of the world in an attempt to show that it is not real and that you as a person in it is fiction. Unfortunately, this cannot be demonstrated via real things, as there are no real things in a fictional world.

IMG-CAPA-IOT

You cannot leave a world where there seems to be more than one, because you are not there, because there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one since formlessness is endless. Yet you can stop believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

To make long short, the examples in this article that suggests the appearances of the world are machines wirelessly ruled by a network in the cloud, are just as fabricated as the world. What you appear to be in the world is not a machine powered by IoT, but it is to be compared to a device ruled by a network.

The purpose of this comparison is to show, that the separated individual you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, is not real, because you are the formlessness of that which is one and as formlessness is endless, there is no more than that which is one.

To enjoy experiencing being something you are not, you must follow the rules of the simulated world you appear to be in. If not the price is suffering.

In the process of undoing the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, you may as well follow the rules of such a world, as that entails pleasure and feeling good it is easier to perceive any appearance as a symbol of the oneness of life.

The more you follow the basic rule of the world, which is to always look for more, the more it supplies you with joy while you at the same time cheat the purpose of the world, which is to make you believe you are someone definitive there and not the formlessness of that which is one, by having this belief undone through perceiving more and more not to be real but symbols of that which is real, and therefore what makes it possible to experience something unreal.

And the more the world becomes symbolic, the more the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one is exposed as an illusion. Hence the belief in such a world will not appear to have the power to hide, there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

From the perspective of a world where there seems to be more than one and where everything has an end, that which is one and never ends may appear to be something extremely powerful. But as it takes more than one to have power, oneness has none. That is why it cannot stop you from believing to be separated from it as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Neither does it need to, because nothing can be separated from it, as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

Without reality, however, it would not be possible to experience an illusion as this article, so just like any other illusions, it is a symbol of reality, namely the formlessness of that which is one. And as formlessness is endless and therefore nothing but life, this is what this limited article is but symbolises.


NOTES:

Nobody in a game is real – only the player is

lowLatencyHeadTrackingIn the previous articles What is life, where does it come from, and what is the meaning? you were promised an explanation of what a person in the world is and how it is made. But that is like having to explain what Santa Claus is made of. There is no answer to this. Yet – just like you may be able to explain how come the fantasy of Santa Claus appeals to children even though it is not reasonable – you may be able to explain how come, you believe to be a person in the world by comparing this belief to the experience of the virtual world in the games from Oculus VR.

The excitement of a virtual world
The Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 is the latest development in virtual reality games. When you wear the glasses from Oculus VR, you do not see the world, as you know, but the virtual world presented to you in the glasses.

So when you turn your head down and look at your legs, you do not see your legs, as you are used to. Instead, you may see them covered by a red spacesuit. And when you look up you may see the ceiling of a spaceship, that you appear to be flying. The world you saw, before you took on the glasses, seems to be gone and replaced by a more exciting world.

Suddenly you are in a fight somewhere in space, where other pilots in other spaceships try to kill you. If you are fast enough, you kill them first – but if not, it is the end of you as a pilot in the virtual world – and the screen turns black.

The excitement of an illusion does not last
You could say, that Oculus VR is just a replication of how a world defined by time and space is constructed in the sense, that it covers our eyes in the same way as the glasses from Oculus VR so that it seems to be the only reality. You think you are a person in its virtual world, but you are not. You are the one with the glasses on and what you appear to be in the game an illusion.

Even though virtual reality is a fabrication done via a computer, it feels tangible and therefore experienced to be real, because you move your head in the physical world to see what is up and down in the virtual world.

Just like a virtual game seems more exciting than your daily life of the world, a world defined by time and space seems more exciting than the formlessness of that which is one, where there is nothing but the peace of oneness. The excitement comes with a price though. Nothing in a world defined by time and space lasts. Therefore you will always fear loss. And contrary to the formlessness of that which is one, that has no beginning or end, you are bound to end in a world defined by time and space.

This is not a problem though, if you remember, you are the player and not the person you pretend to be in a virtual world. This person is an illusion and no matter how much it meditates or purifies itself, it will never be transformed into something real but remain as a fabrication of your fantasy.

All experiences are fabricated by the brain, and if they seem to come from inside or outside, from the heart, god, astral worlds or anywhere else is part of the fabrication. The brain, however, can only process something definable, so it cannot process the formlessness of that which is one.

If you sense the conclusion of this article, you know, that what appears to be you in a world defined by time and space is an illusion. It is not that which is you because that is the reality of that which is one, which should not come as a surprise if you are a long time reader of my non-teaching. And have you read the previous articles in hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life you may have grabbed, that when do not believe to someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, but see your and any other appearance as a symbol of that which is real.

You cannot see the power station in your living room. Yet it is due to that, your room is illuminated by night, so that you can experience the room.

APPENDIX:
If the world is an illusion, we – as somebody there – cannot know if there is anything else than the world. Such knowledge would also be an illusion and so would any hope. The most realistic thing – although still illusionary – is to not know and hope.

However, just like the virtual world of a video game is constructed with the help of elements from the physical world, although there are no physical elements in a virtual world, it is most likely that the illusion of the world is constructed with the help of that which is real, although it cannot be experienced in an illusion. What can be experienced though are symbols of the that which makes it possible to fabricate the illusion of the world.

There is nothing wrong

PART 1:
The experience of being someone, who lives in a capsule of time and space is something you choose to believe is real. This should not be understood, as it is your choice to be sick or not, neither that it is your karma. Just like in a video game nothing happens, that is not already built into it. So if you get sick, when you turn left, the character you pretend to be in the game is programmed accordingly.

Thoughts have no power, but you have. So if you believe that thoughts have power, you have given them yours in order to make it appear as if you are a victim of them, which most seem to prefer, because then they can blame them for their state of mind.

But how you perceive the game is your choice and yours only. If you seem to be conditioned or influenced by others, it is your choice to believe so. You may have chosen to do so because as a victim of others you are off the hook.

Nothing in a movie can make you change your mind. The movie is not real, and an illusion has no power to change anything. It is you, who decide how to perceive an illusion, and so it is totally up to you if you want to perceive it in a way, that makes you happy or sad.

According to the traditional eastern way of thinking the world is an illusion. If so – and if you are real – you cannot be there, but you can pretend to be someone there. In other words: If you perceive yourself to be in trouble, that is how you choose to perceive, what seems to happen in the world of the movie you are pretending to be a part of. As this perception of being in trouble is your choice, you can undo it any time you want. Or you can choose not to pretend to be in the movie at all.

In this article, a movie is a metaphor for the world. This does not mean though, that the world is a movie. It is not a movie, but it is to be compared to a movie in the sense that a movie is an illusion, that seems to be dimensional because of the play of light. You are not part of it, because you are not an illusion, neither are you dimensional.

You are the formless light, that is used to fabricate an illusion of a world defined by time and space, where everything is abstractions – not manifestations – of light. In other words: Everything in the dimensional world fabricated by the play of light are symbols of that which is fabricating it, namely that which is you.

If you feel wrong, it does not help to correct the problem in the person, you seem to be in the world, because you are not ´there´

PART 2:
We may feel split between this and that, and as a solution, we may try to organise ourselves, so that we have one way of appearing – a way that seems only right with one good mood. We also try to have just one love or maybe to love all as one

These or other ideas to solve the feeling of being incomplete by trying to be in one state of mind will not make us one, because the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one is founded on the belief that it is possible to divide the formlessness of that which is one into more than one.

In other words, to experience the world and you as someone there the experience must be divided in two, for example good and bad, so if you appear to be in the world you are divided, and the only solution to the loss this entails is to not appear in the world.

This does not mean, that you must leave the world because you are the formlessness of that which is one, so you are not in a world where there seems to be more than one. Such a world and your appearance there is nothing but make-believe*.

You are appearing in the world because you believe it is possible to divide the formlessness of that which is one into more than one. If not for this belief, a world where there appear to be more than one could not appear to hide there is no more than that which is one.

There is no more than the formlessness of that which is one
When you – in the context of the world – play for instance Monopoly, you pretend to be an inanimate figure there restricted by the rules of the game. Your appearance in the game does not resemble your physical appearance in the world. It is not in the game at all, although it is what makes it possible to pretend to be there.

Life is that which is one, so there is no life in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, animate objects like humans are no more alive than inanimate objects. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The same applies to the person you appear to be in the world. That which is you is no different from that which is one, so it is not possible to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet it is possible pretending to be a person there if playing along with the fundamental idea of such a world, which is to always to be and have more.

The formlessness of that which is one is not in a world where there seems to be more than one, because what is formless is endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

So if you try to impose ideas of oneness upon it, you will be alienated from the person you pretend to beUnfortunately you probably also feel guilty for not making it work, because that implies, you are not good enough or that you are outside the paradise of oneness.

There is n solution to a world where there seems to be more than one
What you have forgotten is that it is not possible to be more than that which is one. You cannot leave that which is you and become something you are not. Just like – in the context of the world – it is not possible to leave your body and become something in Monopoly.

Yet it is possible, while remaining in the body, to pretend to be something in Monopoly. Likewise, it is possible, while remaining the formlessness of that which is one, to pretend, that you are not formless but someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The moral of the story is, there is nothing to transform, correct or make right in the person, you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one because that person or the world where it appears to be is not real.

Consequently, it is not real either, that you pretend to be there. That which is you is no different from that which is one, and as it takes more than one to pretend something, it is not possible. Just like it is not possible to pretend to be someone in a dream, because it is beyond your control. Yet you can pretend that it is possible so that it also becomes possible to pretend not doing it.

When not excluding anything but including everything*, there is nothing to define a person, neither to pretend being a person.

When there is not even this or any other solution to the pain of appearing as someone you are not, you are not someone at all and so nothing seems to hide there is no more one perpetual present.

To be a person in the world is to be compared to streaming music in the sense, that the person you seem to be is actually not ´there´.

The experience of being a person in a world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to the experience of streaming music in the sense, that what you experience is actually not there. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
Listening to music at home has become less and less physical since the big and heavy vinyl records were replaced with a compact cassette, then a compact disc, MP3 and recently streaming music. The signals containing streaming music are everywhere. They cannot be heard as music though before an electronic device, has picked them up and translated them into music, that you can hear wherever you are, although it is not actually there.

The same principle is in play when you experience to be a person in a world where there seems to be more than one. The brain picks up signals delivered by the senses and translates them into a streaming image of a person, who has a conscious experience of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, although there is nothing to be conscious of, since that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless.**

Unfortunately, you have forgotten, that what you experience to see, hear and feel like a person in a world where there seems to be more than one is just a fabrication pieced together by the brain based on its translation of what it streams through the senses. The more you pretend to be this person, however, the more it is obvious that the streaming image of you as someone definitive is a forgery.

You are not what you appear to be. It is not possible, as that which is you is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to appear as if you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.
