Being wrong feels great

PART 1:
What do you get, when you keep peeling off layers of an onion? Nothing. The same applies to peel off layers of the personality. It is there so that you can pretend, there is something where there is nothing. Hence you should not peel off its layers if you want to appear as if you are someone in a world of duality.

Nothing needs to be changed in the virtual world of a game you are playing in order for you to leave it, except the belief that you are there. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Nothing in a world of duality – including whatever you believe to be – needs to be changed or transformed in order for it not to hide non-duality. It is the belief that you are in a world of duality, that needs to be undone. In the context of such a belief this can be compared to playing a game there. If you believe to be in its virtual world, returning to reality seems difficult, until this belief is undone.

Neither should you do that, if you want to undo the belief in duality. Layers are a basic element of duality, so if you take them seriously – and peeling them off is to take them seriously – you enhance the belief in duality. So if you do not want the belief in duality to hide non-duality, it is best not to deal with the layers of the personality, but how come you have chosen to believe, that you are a person in a world of duality.

Your choice of belief is based on what is in it for you, so as long as you believe, the apparent endless possibilities in a world of duality gives you more than non-duality, which only has no more to offer than the peace of oneness, you will keep looking for more in a world of duality.   

As that which is you id no different from the formlessness of that which is one, and as what is formless is endless there is no more than that which is one. In other words, it is not possible to have fun or anything else, as to have something requires more than one. Yet it is possible to imagine a world where there seems to be more than one and have fun there, provided thar you do not foget it is not real. It is just something you pretend. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As 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 that which is one. In other words, it is not possible to have fun, be sad or anything else, as to be or have something requires more than one. Yet it seems possible to imagine, that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one and therefore can have fun and much more – just like within the context of such a world, it is possible to imagine being something you are not in a role-playing game, which can be quite entertaining provided you do not forget, that whatever you experience there is make-believe. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The question, therefore, you should ask is if more money, more fame, more respect, more freedom, more peace, more love, or whatever you are trying to achieve more of in a world of duality results in more satisfaction. Very few, however, want to examine, if being and having more feels right, because if the answer is no, they are wrong, and this is to be avoided at any price.

In reality, though it feels great to acknowledge, that I am wrong in believing, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one because this means there is nobody with a need to fit into a world of duality by participating in the race for more.

You do not make a difference in the world, because that which is you is not there

A world where there seems to be more than one appears to be like a game, that is rigged. To work around this, you must remember that the game is scripted by you. This is not easy to remember because part of the script is to forget. Yet remembering that you are the author, you know that being someone definitive is a fiction. Hence nothing needs to be undone except the belief, that it is real. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Your appearance as someone definitive in a world of duality can be compared to watching a movie, that has been scripted by yourself. This, however, you tend to forget, because it is in the script that you do so. But if you manage to remember that you are the author, you know that it is all make-believe. Hence no changes are needed to leave duality but the undoing of the belief, that it is real. The animation is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
To assume that you are in charge and can change what you appear to be in a world of duality can be compared to thinking, that you are in charge of the world in a video game and can change the character you pretend to be there. That you change something in such a game is an illusion, because nothing can happen there except what is programmed to happen, so every change remains within the script of the world.

The real world can never be realised, if you believe to be in a scripted world. In such a world, however, it is possible to realise that reality is not scripted.

In other words, there is nothing you can change in a world of duality but how to perceive it. Well, you can also choose not to perceive it, so that your belief in duality does not appear to hide non-duality.

The conclusion, however, is not that in non-duality you are in charge because in non-duality there is no more than that which is one and therefore nothing to be in charge of. Neither is there a need for anything, as non-duality is formless and therefore everything, so you lack nothing. That is, if you do not start to wonder, what if there is more than that which is one.

We do not see the world as it is, but as we think it is. Furthermore we do not think. We project specific meaning on specific frequencies that seems to pass by and then we conclude those frequencies are our thoughts. But they are all meaningless frequencies. Life has no need for meaning. It is everything and it takes something outside of everything to have a meaning about it … and there is nothing else than everything. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

We do not see the world as it is, because there is no world. It is just something that we think. Furthermore, we do not think. We project specific meaning on meaningless frequencies and conclude those frequencies are our thoughts. And then we divide ´our´ thoughts into right and wrong, good and bad so that they appear to be tangible and the world they symbolise, therefore, seems to be real. But it a fabricated reality. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Duality can be said to be a world on top of non-duality founded on the idea, that there is more than that which is one. But as the oneness of non-duality is formless it is endless, there is no world outside of it. Hence no matter how much more you seem to become and get outside of non-duality, it is make-believe.

This does not mean, that you must stop looking for more in order to have this make-believe undone, because if you perceive more as a symbol of that which is no more than one, namely non-duality, regardless how much more you appear to be or have, you are still a symbol of non-duality, because without it you could not imagine to divide it into a world of duality.

When you are a symbol of non-duality in a world of duality, you are not there – just like within the context of duality no matter what you appear to be in a game you are playing, your appearance there is not real. It is just a symbol.

Check hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life if you want to read more about seeing everything in the world as symbols.

You have no choice but to be that which is you, because it is that which is one. Yet you can choose to believe you are not the formlessness of that which is you but an appearance defined by time and space. This choice though does not change anything, because there is no more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You have no choice but to be the formlessness of that which is one because what is formless is endless, so there is no more than that which is one and consequently nothing to choose. Yet it seems possible to imagine, that one can choose not to be formless and instead appear as if it is someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. This imagination though does not change anything, because there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 3:
To feel horny or full of compassion is the same illusion in the sense, that it takes more than one to feel something and there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, as formlessness is endless and therefore everything.

This does not mean that feelings should be denied when the experience is that you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Doing that would be to deny, it is you who have chosen to ignore that which is one in order to experience a world where there seems to be more than one because you believe its apparent endless possibilities beat the one and only possibility of that which is one, namely peace.

It is not possible to choose that which is you but to not choose what is not you

Denying that this is your choice, it appears to be hidden, and therefore out of reach. It is therefore in your own best interest not to deny it and play along with the desires it entails of being and having more than that which is one because this will make it possible for you to see if this actually brings about more fulfilment.

In other words, if becoming and having more does not bring about lasting satisfaction, you know that feeling dissatisfied is your own choice. And that is all you need to know in order to make a new choice because it happens automatically when you have acknowledged being wrong.

You may think the above is a little vague and that you need to do more, but that is most likely because you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, and it is founded on the need for more.

Ultimately there is no choice, as that requires more than one, and that which is you is no different from that which is one.

In the formlessness of oneness, however, there is no need for more, because formlessness is endless and therefore everything. So as there is no more than the formlessness of oneness and as it takes more than one to choose something, there is nothing to choose.

Hence any choice will result in you still appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. That is unless you choose not to appear as if you are someone there, which is done by not choosing anything. And that happens automatically, when you see that being and having more does not result in more fulfilment.

PMT Harmony hides that which is one

img2155-edit

As harmony and balance require more than one, the search for it seems to hide there is no more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1: To be balanced and in harmony seems to be the goal for many seekers in a world where there seems to be more than one. But as nothing in such a world can be experienced as something specific without a specific contrast, you cannot experience to be harmonious without its contrast.

So when you want more harmony – which you eventually will crave, as being and/or having more is the reason for believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one – you must also experience more of its contrast.

In other words, to experience more harmony in yourself and/or the world, you must also experience more violent feelings. Hence you seem to be torn apart by a fight between good and evil again. That is until you do not favour one contrast over the other but include them precisely as they occur to be.

When furious feelings are expressed they often comes out in sentences like »You are this and you are that …«. If it is changed into »I am this and that …«, it may be easier to include those feelings, so the belief that you are someone in a world, where there is more than one can be undone.

This is not meant to say, that you must stop blaming others. On the contrary. Blaming others is the easiest way of exposing, what you have excluded, so that it can be included instead. See for example the article The YOU finger and the three ME fingers.

When included they the two sides of the contrast are not separated,  and as that momentarily rubs off on other contrast, there is no separation to uphold the belief in being someone definitive. Hence this belief does not hide, there is no more than that which is one.

You are very vulnerable when perceived as definable, but not being someone definitive you are untouchable. The way to not be perceived as definable is to not exclude anything and thus include everything, as that leaves nothing to define you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The experience of something cannot survive inclusion
Harmony and balance are not the only attributes the special self* insist that comes from being in control. It also claims that it results in more love, wealth, freedom, power and consciousness, for example. It strongly believes that being in control is preferable to be at service as the latter makes it impossible to make a difference and thus to perceive itself as special.

Much energy is required to uphold the perception of being special and thus getting more. That is why more energy and/or power is the best-selling point for capitalistic companies and most so-called spiritual movements, as their apparent existence is based on enhancing the belief that we are unique beings that should not settle for something basic but something special.

It may seem, as if there is a force outside of us, that cannot be controlled. But that is only because we want to believe it is not part of ourselves and we, therefore, can perceive ourselves as a victim of the world. The special self* thrives from this separation of the perceived and the one perceiving it, so if included, it has nothing to live from.

Not perceiving to be special, it is basic, which is such a relief because it requires much work to uphold a perception of being special.

You cannot experience the bliss that comes from not perceiving differences to make a difference, if you suppress the feelings upsetting you, as doing so they are established as different. In other words, you cannot recognise, that differences make no difference, if you do not start off by experiencing hate as well as love, bad as well as good and so on.

The special self,* however, does not want to realise this because it will rather make a difference that being nobody in the bliss of nothing. Read more about the nothingness of bliss in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss and hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

When you your perception of higher is included equally with your perception of low, the moment is perfect. This does not mean that you must value high and low in the same way, but simply that both values are included.

When your perception of high is included equally with your perception of low there is no separation between the opposing sides of this contrast. Hence they cannot be experienced anymore as something specific This does not mean, that you must attribute the same value to high as well as to low, but simply that your perception of both of them is included exactly as they appear to be.

PART 2:
Without the belief in contrasts, it is not possible to have an experience as if there is more than that which is one. In other words, a world, where there seems to be more than one is fabricated through contrasts – and so what has no contrast, namely that which is one, appears to be hidden by it.

When a contrast is included, its opposing sides cancel out each other. Hence you cannot help but smile, because there is nothing but empty space.

In such a world any thought or feeling needs to be contrasted in order to be experienced as if it is something specific and not just empty space. Hence there is no love to experience if you totally deny its contrast hate – neither can you experience beauty if you completely exclude what you judge as ugly.

If you are experiencing more and more love, but are denying its contrast hate, part of love will turn into hate, so that it can contrast how much love you specifically are getting. But If you also deny this hate, more love will turn into hate and in the end, there will be no more love to experience. That is until you do not deny hate. The same applies to any contrast of the world and it applies to both sides of them.

The body is full of suppressed thoughts and feelings, as that is where you try to hide what you judge to be the bad part of a contrast. It may be experienced as headache, bloated stomach and whatnot, but since this is symptoms of exclusion, they are not healed before you include the excluded. See hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough.

As the oneness of life is inclusive and you being exclusive in order to be defined as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, what you believe to be is lifeless.

When the apparent difference between frame and content or between inanimate and animate objects in this image is perceived to not make a difference, the contrasts cannot hide the empty space they are constructed from. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Actually, it is nothing but empty space. And that is what is seen – or rather not seen, as it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one there appears to be something to see – when you do not perceive the apparent difference of the opposing sides in all the contrasts, that make up a world where there seems to be more than one, to make a difference.

Without differences, there is not something to take up a space of its own and there is no space in between anything. Hence there is nothing but the empty space in which the contrasts were imagined to be, and so there is not something to hide the formlessness of oneness.

APPENDIX:
To fully include a feeling of the moment is in no way about going deeper, being more truthful or more about anything else. It is just about including the feeling, as it is.

Inclusion – contrary to exclusion – makes a moment perfect.

Going deeper and being purer, for example, are ideas of the special self,* that is used to make sure it is wrapped up in the perception that difference makes a difference. Thus it cannot see nothing is wrong, and nothing is missing. Every moment is the perfect moment.

In a perfect moment you do not need more, nor less, so you do not need to be in control to make it better. Yet the idea of improving yourself and/or the world will most likely pop up again. No worries. It will not stress you if it is included.

To avoid being nothing, something must be excluded. But whether you appear to be nothing or something, you are non-existent, as there is no more than which is one is one and as it takes more than one to exist. So not excluding something, you are not nothing but everything, because that which is one is formless and therefore endless.

If you are afraid a perfect moment is not strong enough to dismiss the perception of being special, all you need to do about it is to not do anything but include the fear of that as well. Fear only appears to be there, when something is excluded, so by including everything as it is you are untouchable.**


*) Read about the special self in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one.

**) Being untouchable in a perfect moment has nothing to do with the condition of the body or the world. The body may partly or entirely break down, but even though this is experienced as painful, it will not make you suffer, because you are untouchable.

PMT A perfect moment does not require learning – only inclusion

Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings
about including both sides of a contrast, so that they cancel out each other* and leave you with nothing but a perfect moment is not meant to be a new religion or philosophy with special steps to learn and strictly to follow.

In the previous articles where there have been examples of contrasts like love and hate or good and bad, it is quite easy to figure out the opposite opponents of a contrast. But you do not need to be conscious about the opposite side of a certain thought or feeling in order to include both sides of the contrast.

It only make sense to talk about night, because we also are aware of its contrast day. And we would not know about light if not for darkness. So it makes no difference, if you are aware of both sides of a contrast or not, as long as you just include one side of it exactly as you perceive it.

You cannot experience just one thing. If you did you would not know what it is that you experience. You need the contrast of love, which is hate, to know you are in love. In other words, when including love as it is, hate is automatically included* – even though it often may be on an unconscious level.

The inclusion of everything perceived in a moment is not complicated. If the Chinese wallpaper in this image is not part of the perception of the moment for the person eating in a Chinese restaurant, there is no need for him to include it.

Maybe he did not even noticed the food in the moment of this photo, but had a childhood memory popping up when being photographed. If so, including everything as it is perceived in the moment for him is to include the memory of his childhood and whatever thoughts or feeling arises from that.

This is what makes the moment perfect for him. Not Alexius shooting the photo, the Chinese food or the beautiful people passing by, because that is not his perception of the moment. His perception of the moment is of the past, and when that is included the moment is perfect now.

There are no rules but inclusion
It is inclusiveness that makes a moment perfect. If there is something you forget to include, you include forgetfulness, which automatically will include mindfulness as well, whether you are aware of this contrast or not.

A perfect moment can be compared to a zone where there is no concern and therefore no need to correct, transcend or transform anything.

The idea of living in the now is as most so-called spiritual ideas based on exclusion so that the belief in separation can be enhanced – in this case, it is the past and future that is excluded in order to find a separated point in between those called now. A perfect moment, however, is no based on separation, as it includes any memory of the past as well as expectations for the future.

Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It can last a split second, but it may also seem as if you forever are in a state of daydreaming about nothing, or a short outburst of crying about the past, or a vision of a sensual kiss in the future. It lasts as long as you have no concern for a world where there seems to be more than one.

But measured in the linear time, it cannot last more than 20 minutes, 45 minutes at the most, as a world where there seems to be more than one constantly needs to be witnessed. If not, you will not experience it anymore. Neither anything else, as what you believed to be is no more. Not is the sense, that it has been replaced by something else, because it was never there, although the belief that it hid the formlessness of oneness.

To include everything does not mean you must stop to exclude. That would not be to include everything. You do not need to stop anything to undo the belief in separation. You simple include everything – also excluding.

No need to worry about getting it right. All that is needed for a moment to be perfect is to not be exclusive but inclusive – and you are automatically inclusive when not exclusive.

Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If this seems to be unsettling, include it, and you will see, that by including all parts of your experience of a world where everything seems to be different, their apparent difference makes no difference, and so the belief in separation, which is what makes you feel uncomfortable, is slowly being undone while you at the same time are enjoying this belief.

To include everything has nothing to do with the so-called union of soul, mind and body.** To believe in such concepts is just as illusionary, as to believe in any other concept based on the idea that it is possible to be or have more than that which is one. As it takes more than one to include something, this is of course also an illusion. Yet the illusion of inclusion is a way to use the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one yo undo that belief.

It may be easier to include somebody than the feelings they represent
If a feeling from the past
seems a little diffuse, it is often easier to include it by merely including those you blame for it in the present, or by including your body as it feels in this moment, as most unwanted thoughts and feelings are stored there, for example in the stomach until the pressure gets too high on the body, so you try to alleviate it by projecting it onto others – often those closest to you.

In other words, your body and those closest to you may be the most significant symbols of exclusion, so by including those symbols, you are way off on your way to undo the belief in separation. In the case of Alexius, his cats most certainly represent excluded sides of him, that seems a bit diffuse to him and therefore hard to include. Yet, it is easy to include his cats.

To include them is not the same as to love them, as you cannot love something unless it is perceived to be separated from you. From this follows, to love somebody is to exclude somebody. Yet this exclusion – just like any other, can be undone by including it.

If there is somebody you dislike, you do not need to change that, because when this is not justified, but simply included as it is, to like or dislike makes no difference.

It is all about inclusion
As already state Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not a new philosophy or religion with a new vocabulary and rules, that you must learn and strictly follow, so if you, for example, do not want to include your cats, feel free to exclude them. It does not matter, as long as you include your unwillingness to do this. In other words, exclusion is also fine – just remember to include it that you are exclusive … and should you forget that, well, include your forgetfulness.

Maybe inclusion does not seem to work for you. No problem. If it feels frustrating and as if something still is missing, you just include that.

Life is not exclusive but inclusive, so to not exclude is to uncover life. When exclusion is included, you do not exclude.

If you are unwilling to undo your belief in a world, where there appear to be more than one, you do not need to change that, because if you include your unwillingness you will also include your willingness, as like any other contrast they are like two sides of the same coin. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you are unwilling to undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, you do not need to change that, because if you unwillingness is included, willingness is included as well, since two opposite sides of a contrast are like two sides of the same coin.

PART 2: To include something means that you do not exclude it by projecting it onto others and blame them for what is yours. Not that it actually is yours. Nothing is. Your appearance as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

Nobody has created Mickey Mouse, because he does not exist, neither does the world where he seems to live – even though there seems to be elements of reality in it.

Since what and where you believe to be is nothing but empty space, it is neither you or the world but the perception of it as something that is the problem in regards to seeing the illusion of it. This includes realising there is nobody perceiving it as something and realising it is nothing because hat calls for more than one and tthere is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

However, while you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, everything is yours – whether it appears to be inside or outside, so-called spiritual or mundane – because it is you who perceives the experience of it as real. That is why not excluding anything but including everything precisely as perceived undoes the belief in being what and where you perceive to be.***

Mickey Mouse looks very happy, but there is no happiness in him except for what you believe to be there.

A world where there seems to be more than one can be compared to a digitisied movie. Even though it consists of nothing but zeros and ones, you perception of it makes you forget what is real.

Do not worry if you are not willing to include everything. Unwillingness**** does not matter if not justified by others but included as yours. No need to worry either, if you are justifying unwillingness. The same that applies to unwillingness applies to justification. It makes no difference when included as yours.

PMT [+] 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.

Guinevere freaking out. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Guinevere freaking out. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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. Actually, 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 to be in 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 since the result is the same as before, there is more anger that needs to 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.

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.


NOTES:

  • In this article, the words light, dark and darkness are used within the context of a world defined by time and space, and so they have nothing to do with the enlightenment of that which is one.

PMT Concentration is suppressing that which is you

_IGP8362-Edit

By focussing a lot, this goat-herd seems to be in control of his goats. Yet both the master and the followers are imprisoned by this. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
To fence off what you do not like, you need to continually separate your view of the world into fragments of good and bad. Lots of concentration is required to maintain the appearances of the world as divided into those categories and their subcategories of being more or less good and bad.

In movies it bank robbers, killers and worried people look quite concentrated, while the happy ones seems unconcentrated.

The more you concentrate, the more you will able to control yourself and focus your energy towards doing something specific. For the bad ones, this can be very helpful for drilling a hole in a bank safe, for instance, and for the good ones it can be very helpful in preventing a bank robbery.

But it is not helpful in regards to enjoying the moment as it is. On the contrary. The more you concentrate, the less you are able to go with the flow and participate in spontaneous laughter. You are focused on attaining a specific goal in the future and cannot enjoy what is around you in the present if it does not seem to be part of the glorious story, you have made up and that you are concentrating on manifesting in the future.

To make long short, contrary to what you may have learned in the context of for example meditation, concentration is not beneficial in regards to not being blinded by the belief that there is more than the formlessness of oneness, as it appears to be hidden by what you focus on.

Defocus neutralise the apparent differences of the world so that the belief in separation cannot be upheld and therefore does not appear to hide that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But when you are not concentrated on achieving something imagined in the future, you are not focussed – and being defocused the apparent differences of the world make no difference. As that means the belief in separation falls apart, there is nobody to know, what and where you are. In other words, there is not someone definitive to hide the formlessness of oneness.

Reading a book requires much focus, so often you will end up feeling quite paralysed, which is a state enhancing the belief a world defined by time and space. Television and cinemas are more beneficial in regards to undoing this belief, as they do not require the same amount of focus.

The same applies to reading on a digital media. After some hours of multitasking* on the web you may be quite spaced out, which is terrific in regards to undoing the belief in a world defined by time and space.

Multitasking* is a great help to not focus. Doing several things at the same time, there is not much time to care about specifics or the labelling of everything. This is a prerequisite for a perfect moment and/or the result of it, as it is a state of not-knowing.

To focus leads to fixation and so it seems you are stuck, where as defocus if you defocus on the same, it ceases to appear. The image is grabbed from the web

Focusing leads to fixation, and so it seems you are stuck in a capsule of time and space. But if you do not focus at all, you are not fixed in time and space, and without it, you are not someone definitive. Thus there is nothing to hide the formlessness of that which is you, namely that which is one. So if you have to pick up your kids from the kindergarten, you do not defocus but include the matter at hand. In this way you are still on track in regards to undoing the belief in time and space, because it is based on inclusion, so it cannot survive being included. The image is grabbed from the web.

When nothing is wrong or missing, you are not of the world, though you appear to be there
The only order is oneness, but this you cannot find in a world where there seems to be more than one, because it is based on the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Relating to a world where there seems to be more than one implies that you believe it is real. This belief requires constant focus to maintain the apparent difference between you and others, good and bad and so on.

But defocusing neutralises all differences. If you continue to look at something without focusing on it, not only will it disappear but the whole the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one and you as someone registering it. In linear time this requires about half an hour of constant defocus, but if you think you have unfinished business in the world, you will not be able to not focus on fixing this.

The concentration needed to focus on something and thereby exclude what is not focussed on tightens up the body, so that it feels more real. In other words, the more you include, the less there is to focus on, the less the body feels real and the more obvious it is that it is an illusion, since life includes everything as it is formless and therefore everything.

If so, you may be better off by focusing on your problems – not to exclude them though but to include them. When included they cannot be focussed on, so the more you include, the less a world where there seems to be more than one can be experienced as real. Yet you at the same time can have the excitement of appearing to be there.

That which is one has no centre, since it requires more than one to have one.

To be centered is a numb state of separation. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
If you do not want the belief in a world defined by time and space to hide the formlessness of oneness, it is not desirable to be centred, as that requires much control in order to continuously exclude what is not judged to be centred. And as to exclude is to separate, the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one is enhanced instead of undone.

Trying to be centred is often a way to fence off what you judge to be wrong in the world, so that it seems as it is a good and not a bad experience to appear there. But to experience goodness only is to separate, so it will not feel good. Unfortunately most try to solve this by becoming more centred in order to fence off more bad experiences.

That being said, if you have worked hard to separate specific parts of the world from the image you have made of yourself so that it appears to be a story of a good person in a bad world, you do not need to undo that. It happens all by itself if the need to separate is included.

Everything in a world defined by time and space needs contrast so it can be to be experienced as something definable. Thus you can only experience to be separated if you also – consciously or not – experience to be connected. And as the sum of the two opposite sides in a contrast always is a perfect moment, that is what you have if you do not keep the two sides apart. A perfect moment though is not a sensation like for example falling in love but rather the relief of being in a state of not-knowing. This is not limited to the period called now.

If you have an expectation to a perfect moment, it will not be perfect until the expectation and its opposite – desperation – is included exactly as they appear to you. And as said in the previous articles, inclusion is to not exclude, so when desperation is not excluded in an attempt to enjoy the thrill of expectation, it is included.

Moaning and whining sets the focus on problems and you need to stay focussed to appear as if you are someone in a world, where there seem to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
Grievances keep you focused, and you need to stay focused in order to constantly be able to control thoughts so they can be used to keep together the imagination of a world defined by time and space.

Believing to see something is an illusion, as it takes more than one to see anything, and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Thoughts have no power
This is not to say that it is thoughts that make such a world appear to be real. If you, within the context of this world, is sitting in your bathtub and start to imagine a world in the steam from the hot water, it is not the steam, that makes the world. It has no such power. There only appear to be a hidden world in the steam, because you like to imagine it. Thoughts can be compared to the steam.

Even though the steam in your bathtub may seem to hide the bathroom, nothing in the bathroom is changed by the steam. Likewise, even though your belief in the thought construction of a world, where there seem to be more than one, appears to hide that which is one, nothing has changed. There is no more than that which is one.

Nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one lasts. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In the context of the world, steam is not really something, so it only appears to be there for a short while. And in the context of the formlessness of oneness thoughts are gone the same moment they appear to be there.

As a story has a beginning and an end, so has the story of a world defined by time and space, and as oneness has no end, since it is formless and therefore endless, a world defined by time and space is not part of it.

That is unless you want to believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one and therefore hang onto them in order to fabricate a story of a world defined by time and space outside the formlessness of oneness. There is, however, nothing outside of it, since formlessness is endless. Hence the story of a world where there seems to be more than one is fabricated by empty space.

If you want, that which is real, namely the formlessness of oneness, forget about focusing on forms like for example in this image. Focusing will only enhance the appearance of form and therefore the belief, that separation is possible. Defocusing on the other hand will blur out everything until there are no forms to hide the formlessness of oneness.

The world is make-believe upheld by focusing on specific appearances
There is nothing in a world defined by time and space, so if you believe to be there, you cannot leave it, but the belief that you are there can be undone – and as focusing is what keeps the belief together defocusing will undo it.

Contrasting defocus with focus
It is through defocusing the words in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are exposed. So if you do not try to understand them, they will hack your focus, so you do not see anything specific. Be aware though, that it may seem to take time if you are attached to the perception of linear time, because like everything else in a world defined by time and space is based on contrasts – in this case, the contrast of past and future.

Not knowing what he writes is how Alexius types down his enlightened non-teachings.

So while in the process of undoing the belief in a world defined by time and space, you must operate within contrasts, which in regards to defocusing you do by alternating it with focusing. Just like Alexius is defocusing in order to write these non-teachings and focusing when proofreading and publishing them.

Or you are non-focused when reading the non-teachings, and focused when implementing them in a world defined by time and space. To read in a defocused way, however, is not to read between the lines. There is nothing in between the lines, so if you seem to experience something there, you have focused a lot to imagine this. So to read in a defocused way is rather to not know what you are reading.

Have your cake and eat it too
A terrific way to contrast focus with defocussing is to see everything in a world defined by time and space as symbols of that which makes it possible to focus on something specific, namely the formlessness of oneness.** Perceiving the world like that everything definable is a symbol of that which cannot be defined. Thus the apparent differences of the world do not make a difference, which means you are defocusing.

In this way, you can have your cake and eat it too. You get the excitement of appearing to be and/or have more than that which is one, while the belief that this is possible is being undone.

NOTES:

  • The above should not be understood as to concentrate is bad in a world defined by time and space. It is an excellent tool in such a world for establishing yourself. But it is not okay if you want to undo the belief that you are someone definitive.

PMT Inclusiveness is a perfect moment

A cup of coffee cannot be defined as coffee when there is no focus on it – neither can someone be defined to not focus on it, as it requires focus to be someone. The graphic is grabbed from cyberspace.

PART 1:
When you have a look at the world, it is thoughts that tell you what it is that you see. And they imply there is a world full of appearances divided into categories of for example good or bad and attractive or repelling. But you do not have to listen to those thoughts though. If you do not hang onto them in an attempt to compile them into a story, they will just pass by. In other words, all you have to do to not see a world where there seems to be more than one is to not use thoughts to confirm its apparent differences.

To appear as someone special much concentration is needed, whereas no concentration is required to not to appear as someone at all.

When defocusing* you cannot remember what and where you are, and so there is nobody to compile thoughts into a definition of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Neither is there nobody to see if they just pass by, but that is how it appears to Alexius while writing this intro and enjoying a cortado.

Instead of searching for thoughts, that can define the cortado in front of him, he goes with the flow of the world enfolding itself in the froth of it. When this is not converted into something familiar based on past definitions, coffee is not perceived to be different from the froth of it or the world appearing to be in it, nor outside of it.

This does not mean that the apparent differences of the world are not experienced to be there, but that they do not make a difference when you are inclusive and not exclusive.

Defocusing may seem to space you out, so that you see new worlds within the world, which is a grand way

Defocusing may space you out so that you automatically shift into automatic gear from where you intuitively do and say, what is in the best interest of everything appearing to be involved at that moment. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If hack #4.1 Every moment is the perfect moment. seems to make you spaced out, you are on the right track in regards to undoing the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Yet, you are not on the right track, if you space out on the way to pick up your kids from the kindergarten, as they require you to focus on differences so that you can be more than them and guide them on their journey in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Spaced out is just one side-effect of defocusing. Another one is clarity. When you are not focused on anything, in particular, your mind is not busy discussing what is right and wrong, and so you intuitively do and say what is called for. Not because you know what to do or say, as that would require focus, but because you function in automatic gear in much the same way as when you are connected with the empty breath.**

Being in automatic gear it is not a problem to multitask. Actually, it seems to be the most natural thing to do, since you are not result-minded anymore.

Yet being process-minded is not a requirement for undoing the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. No being but inclusion is required. So if you are result-minded and feel guilty about it, you just include that. As anything in a world where there seems to be more than one needs to be contrasted by something in order for it to be experienced as something specific, process-minded and innocence are also included when you include result-minded and feeling guilty.

You do not have to be aware of this for the inclusion of a contrast to work, as the two opposing sides of a contrast are like two sides of the same coin, so the inclusion of one side includes them both.

Since the two opposing sides of a contrast cancel out each other when added together, the sum of them is nothing, and as this momentarily rubs off on other contrasts making up what you believe to be, you are in a state of not-knowing. Thus there is nobody to judge anything in terms of good and bad, therefore everything is fine as it is. That is why every moment is the perfect moment.

PART 2:
There is no free will in the world defined by time and space regarding what is going to happen next, because just like in the world of a movie all future events are fixed – even though movies, where the viewer can choose different developments of it, are being planned, all the changes you can choose are pre-made according to the choice of the producer and not yours.

The only thing you actually can change is your perception of what happens in the movie. The same applies to a world defined by time and space – also if your experiences there seem to be of a spiritual nature. It is part of the script and has nothing to do with spirituality since it is formless and the world is not. In other words, no matter how and where you appear, this is just as illusionary as anything a movie or a video game. Nobody is there.

If you choose to perceive the apparent differences in the world of a movie to make a difference, its world seems real to you. But if the apparent differences is not perceived to make a difference, you see that it is nothing but an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you choose to believe, the apparent differences in a movie are making a difference, its world seems real to you. But if you choose to believe, that the apparent differences do not make a difference, the story of the movie is not important. You may want it to finish, because it is so unrealistic and hide that which is real.

Likewise, the formlessness of oneness, which is all there is since formlessness is endless, seems to be hidden by a world defined by time and space – or rather the belief that its apparent differences make a difference. The more the apparent differences in a world defined by time and space is not believed to make a difference, the less time and space appears to be real.

Ways of perceiving the world
Perceiving differences to make a difference requires hard work because you must always be on the lookout for what to judge as good or evil so you can exclude what you decide to be bad from the story of who you are. The reward is that you appear to be good and as that is not possible in the formlessness of that which is one, as it takes more than one to be anything, you also appear to be more than that which is one.

But the price is suffering and a constant search for the bad things you can blame for your state of mind. See also the article The YOU finger and the three ME fingers.

Perceiving differences to not make a difference requires no work, but including all the apparent differences, which is quite easy, as it is just to not exclude any part of your experience of the present moment. The reward is a perfect moment, and as that is a state of not-knowing there is nobody to feel wrong or that something is missing.

In other words, you do not need to be or have more – except for more perfect moments. And the more you have of those, the less you need to be and have. You become nobody, and as the world is in the eye of the beholder, nobody is seen, and so there is not someone definitive to hide the formlessness of that which is one.

Alexius´ three cats seem to be very different. Yet he loves them all – not in the same way though. He acknowledges their different needs and love them accordingly. Yet these differences make no difference to him, because he perceives both the cats and himself as symbols of that which makes it possible to experience that there is more than one.

This does not mean that his cats and he are at one – or that he is at one with anything else, as that requires more than one – but that even though they all appear to be very different, the apparent differences make no difference, because they are symbols of the same, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

Ways to perceive differences make no difference?
In part 1 of this article, defocussing was suggested as a means to cancel out the opposing sides of contrasts. This may be the fastest way to undo the belief in a world, where there seems to be more than one so that the belief in such a world does not appear to hide that which is one.

But if you like to enjoy the world while undoing it defocusing may be a bit abrupt to you, as it only takes 20 minutes, 45 at most, of total defocus before there is no knowledge of a world defined by time and space, neither of you appearing to be in such a world or anywhere else.

So to make the beginning of your journey without distance more gentle, you could instead choose to see everything in the world as symbols of that which is one, as that means, even though the appearances of the world seems to be different, it makes no difference because they all symbolise the same. In other words, when everything in the world is perceived to be symbolic, you do not have to think about contrasts and make sure everything is included.

In this way, the belief in a world, where there seems to be more than one, is being undone, while you can have fun appearing to be someone there. This you can read about in hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life.

The same occurs the more you choose to pretend to be someone in the world instead of believing to be there. You can read about this in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

If you like, you can also check out hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss, where there is much more about how to cancel out contrasts by fully including one side of them.


*) It is common sense, that you only defocus in situations, where your attention is not needed in the world. As long as you appear to be in a world, where there seem to be more than one, you play along on its premise, which requires much focus and concentration, as otherwise there does not appear to be a world, where there seems to be more than one.

**) In hack #4, A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss there is more about the empty breath.


NOTES:

Every moment is the perfect moment – also for dying in the rainforest

This article is in the process of being updated!

To be angry or to be joyful is the same

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1:
The reason for abandoning that which is one in favour of a world where there seems to be more than one may differ from person to person. One general reason though is the craving for being and having more than that which is one. And anger that this is not possible, since formlessness is endless and therefore everything, so there is no more than that which is one.

The purpose of believing to be a separated creature in a body is that in the body you can hide what you do judge to be wrong, so an image of you being right can be fabricated.

Yet it is not possible to feel anger in oneness since that requires more than one. So anger is not something you feel but that which is you, and as there is no difference between that and the formlessness of oneness and there is nothing outside it, anger cannot be escaped.

When somebody else or your own body is blamed for the anger, so you seem to be off the hook and on a path of love. See also the article The YOU finger and the three ME fingers.

But what if there was something outside of oneness. If so there would be somewhere to escape – and so you imagine a whole world outside of that which is one where there seems to be more than one and keep imagining ´what if´. In this world you can hide the anger in the body, you seem to have, or project it onto other bodies, which is the main purposes of the appearance of them, as they not only seem to hide your anger but also that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

Only in a world where there seems to be more than one is it possible to experience a contrast like that of joy and anger. This or any other feeling is, however, an illusion, as reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to feel something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Yet none of the imagined appearances in a world where there seems to be more than one lasts, so sooner or later anger seems to be yours again. And nothing will really help you to get rid of it or any other feeling that you brought into a world where there seems to be more than one. Fortunately, you do not have to get rid of anything, if everything seen is perceived as symbols of that which makes it possible to imagine, there is anything to see at all, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

Hence the apparent difference between anger and joy does not appear to make a difference, and when everything is the same there is peace.

That everything is the same in the sense that every appearance symbolises the formlessness of that which is one, does not mean that you should not acknowledge the apparent between for example you and me, but that you do not interpret it to make a difference.

To perceive differences in that way is not ultimate reality though but a simulation of it. No worries. By seeing every appearance as a symbol of that which is one, you are not identified with being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, and so you are bidding welcome the formlessness of that which is one, and as that is no different from that which is you it is only a matter of time the symbols do not appear to hide that which they are symbolising.

How long this will take is not important, because time is a symbol of that which is one and like all other symbols an illusion. So even though you appear to be waiting to return that which is you, it is not so. That is where you are there. It is not possible to be anywhere else.

When nothing is excluded, there is nothing to define you, and thus nothing to hurt you. And as nothing, you are free to fall into the formlessness of that which is one. The animation is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
Just like there are no memories of you as someone in a physical world when having dreams while being at sleep in such a world, there are no memories of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one when the body you identified as yours is dying.*

Yet all the thoughts and feelings, that you excluded in order for them to define you as what you were not in a world where there seems to be more than one, chaotically and speedily are rushing by. If you for example excluded negativity in order to be defined as not negative but positive in a world where there seems to be more than one, negativity will rush by mixed up with everything else excluded.

But as there is no experience of a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot escape this in the way you used to, namely by projecting unwanted thoughts and feelings on somebody else. Neither would that be meaningful in regards to making up an identity of you as someone special, because there is not somebody else, who can define you in relation to them.

You are on your own, always was and always will be, because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Also when you experienced to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. That was a make-believe world maintained by the brain. In the moments of death, however, it does not have the power to maintain this illusion.

If you do not believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot suffer from pain, because it takes more than one to have a specific experience.

For the same reason there is nobody to share the pain of loneliness, that all those excluded thoughts and feelings rushing by seem to bring about, with – or in any way get help to surpass this apparent hell.

It feels like there is no solution. But there is, because if all thoughts and feelings are included, there is no need for a world where there seems to be more than one, so instead of feeling as if you are about to explode, you are at peace, slowly falling into the formlessness of that which is one, where there is no loneliness, as it takes more than one to be alone.

APPENDIX:
Since it takes more than one to be conscious of something, it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one this is possible, so do if you do not want the belief in such a world to hide that there is no more than that which is one, do not hang onto consciousness, when you at the moment of death seem to lose it.

And as the consciousness of such wold is limiting, it hides the formlessness of oneness, which is everything there is, since formlessness is endless. So when you on the moment of death seem to lose consciousness of such a world or anything else, do not hang onto it, because it takes more than one to be conscious, so without it, there is nothing to hide, there is no more than that which is one.

Not hanging onto the conscious of being someone at all, feels like the end of you, but it is not the end of anything else than the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

NOTE: This article is part of hack #2.4 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality.

Oneness has no choices, as that requires more than one – and that is why, it is nothing but peace

The appearances in a virtual world like a video game seem more exciting than the appearances in the world – and the world of duality seems more exciting than non-duality.

To appear as a hero in a virtual world like a video game seems often more exciting than what one appears to be in the physical world – just like being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, may seem more exciting than having nothing but the peace that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As oneness is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one, and as it takes more than one to experience something, any experience – falling in love, having a high consciousness or being transformed into to this and that – is an illusion.

For the same reason, there is nowhere to go. But as nothing is missing in that which is one, since it is endless and therefore everything, it is not necessary to go anywhere. That is why it is one perpetual present of peace.

In one perpetual present no one is special and no one takes up more space than another one, because there is no more than that which is one.

One perpetual present is not exciting though. There is nothing to search for, explore and be excited about because there is no future. Everything is there simultaneously in one eternal now. But most of all because it is not possible to be someone specific in one perpetual present, as that requires differentiation, so there is nobody to explore and be excited about anything, That is why it is nothing but peace.

The experience of movement in this image requires more than one, because without somebody watching it, it is totally still. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As it requires more than one to describe something, that which is one cannot be described, so the above description should not be taken literally. Neither should it be taken as a pointer to that which is one, as it also requires more than one to point to something. In this context, the description or any other in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings rather points towards the illusion of experiencing, realising or understanding something at all, as that requires more than one.

A world where there seems to be more than one can within the framework of such a world be compared to a video game, that you play when you want something more exciting than reality. And as long as you find excitement in exploring the deeper levels of the virtual world of such a game, you will keep playing it.

The more you play such a game, however, the more you will feel lost, because to get excited you must give up that which is real and pretend to be someone in a virtual world. In other words, the price of excitement is to give up the peace of oneness, since excitement can only be experienced where there seems to be more than one.

The excitement of more versus the peace of no more that which is one
As it takes more than one to be excited about something and as peace is that which is one there is no excitement in oneness. Hence you cannot get both of them. Actually, you cannot get any of them, since it requires more than one to get something.

Fortunately, you do not need to get peace, because that which is you is no different from that which is one and oneness is nothing but peace. But if you think that there must be more than one, you are always in need of excitement as it seems to prove there is more than one. Yet you are never satisfied. There always seems to be more levels explore and more to transform, when you believe there is more than that which is one.

You must acknowledge, where you have chosen to be in order to be able to undo your choice.

You are not the victim of the world, neither of the ego, so before you can have the belief that you are someone definitive undone, you must acknowledge, that it is you who have chosen to believe so. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You may blame the world for never getting enough. Yet that is not the cause but the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. It is you who choose to believe this, and this choice you will not be motivated to change as long as there is hope for new experiences of excitement triggered by for example a very special person, the latest gadget or the promise of a new and deeper way to transform what you appear to be into something better and/or higher.

When you know, that no lasting excitement to get in the future and that it was you who started this endless quest for more, you are ready to not get excited and make a choice for peace.

Well, you cannot choose that, but you can choose to not choose what is not peace, namely whatever that seems to excite you.

A way to start undoing the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is to question yourself, if more excitement is equal to less suffering.

You may be a fool running after more, but you are not stupid, so when you see that more is never enough and whatever you get more of entails more suffering, you will automatically correct the belief that more it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

The above is not meant to make you fill guilty about wanting more (or less) than that which is one. To do so is part of appearing in a world, where there seems to be more than one, so you are just doing what you are supposed to do. The question, however, is if you are getting what you are supposed to get. If not, you can choose to not choose what appears to be more than one.

You are not in a hurry though. Time is an illusion and as there is no more than that which is one, this is still that which is you, even though a world where there seems to be more than one seems to hide it.

APPENDIX:
Greed for being or having more is what keeps you going in a world, where there seems to be more than one, but it is also what makes your frustrated, because no matter how much how much more you become or get, it is not enough. You need more, and it must be larger, better, faster, wilder, deeper or purer. You are afraid of not getting it, and if you get it, you are afraid of losing it. Even if you do not lose it, you are afraid it is not good enough. In other words, the price of being and/or having more is suffering.

If you are stranded in a desert, there is no lasting solution but to leave it. The same applies to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one. There is no real solution to the constant fear of not having enough because nothing lasts in such a world. You need to sleep, again and again, you need more and more food and so on.

It is not the world as such, you need to leave in order to have enough and not be afraid of losing what you have. It is the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, that needs to be undone so that this belief does not appear to hide there is no more the peace of that which is one.

Undoing this belief is not an act of doing or not doing something, as it is not possible to be or have more than that which is one. In other words, you should not go with your own speed in your own time, because only in a world where there seems to be more than one, can you have something of your own.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #2.4 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality.

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 appears 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 a 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 hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss you can read how to undo this belief by not excluding but including the apparent opposite sides of contrast

Be happy you are nothing, because reality has no room for something

A person is an imagination constructed by nothing in a way so that it appear as if it is something, when imagining something else can see it.

A person is an imagination constructed out of nothing in a way so that it appears as if it is something by imagining it interacts with something else.

All the ideas, that seems so progressive, like taken responsibility for yourself and accepting yourself as you are, are nothing but the special self doing its usual thing disguised by pretty words. It wants you to believe that it is able to think, feel and take decisions by itself, so you take responsibility for actions and/or accept thoughts, feelings and decisions as if they are yours. Hence the thoughts, feelings, decisions and actions you have accepted or taken responsibility for seem to prove, you are more special than others in a world where there seems to be more than one.

For those who do not like the idea of this narcissistic self, it introduces the idea that it can be transformed into a higher self. It does not matter, that it has no way of proving this and that nobody ever ha transcended into a higher self, because most following such ideas probably had a hard time adjusting to a world where there seems to be more than one, so they are willing to believe anything that promises to make themselves and/or the world better.

The problem though is, that the self does not exist. Nor does anything else because the reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to exist – or to be conscious of anything. In other words, all that someone experiences or are conscious of is an illusion – also if it is judged to be divine or spiritual – and so is the one believing to experience or be conscious about something.

Believing to be someone at all can be compared to a machine believing to exist as someone definitive. There is no ´I´, self or soul in a machine. It is all mechanics, and even though the machine may have been built with AI (artificial intelligence), it cannot think itself. All thoughts are preprogrammed possibilities. Nobody is thinking them and nobody is seeing, what the machine seems to see.

If what you believe to be has been programmed with a visual mind, there may be an Aha! moment seeing the below illustrations, that demonstrate how a machine with AI ´sees´ the world. It simply registers data or frequencies, that are perceived according to how it is programmed/conditioned.

The machine has been programmed to perceive this point of frequencies as if it is cute, and so it searches its database for an image that illustrates this.

The machine translate this point of frequencies as eyes and conclude it is seeing the image, that it fabricated based on the info from its database.

Based on past decisions the machine chooses to see this as a dog.

It is also seeing a female, but it still needs to search its database to know, if it is the female or the dog that is cute so that it can fabricate the appropriate feeling.

In the context of realisation and acceptance, all what can be realised and accepted is that what you believe to be does not exist. This realisation or acceptance does not mean, you understand the illusion of being someone definitive. If it could be understood, it would not be an illusion. So it means you understand nothing. There is no knowledge of what and where you are. Hence there is no ´I´. There is nothing, and so there is room for everything.

Duality is a simulated reality on top of non-duality

simulated_universe_1372282700_600x275

The image is grabbed from the movie The Thirteenth Floor.

The real world that is one and non-dual cannot be seen in a world of duality, as this simulated world layered on top on non-duality appears to hide it. An illusion though cannot hide anything. It is therefore rather the belief that you are someone definitive in a world of duality, that appears to suppress, there is no more than the formlessness of non-duality.

While you believe to be in a world of duality no matter what you experience there – whether it seems to be so-called spiritual or mundane, to come from the heart and whatnot – is make-believe. The light of the sun is no more real than that from a bulb, and a so-called live flower is just as artificial as a plastic flower.

Eyes do not see. It is the brain, that fabricate the images, you seem to ´see´. Actually, the brain can produce perfect images of what seems to be a realistic world even with your eyes closed. The brain deceives you – but only because you want to be deceived.

Whether love is perceived to be pure or not, it is not real – neither is loss, abundance, ego, mind, soul, consciousness, truth, god, angels, spiritual beings or astral planes. Nothing but non-duality is real, because it is endless and therefore everything. Besides, non-duality is oneness, so it is not possible to have a mind, be conscious and whatnot, as it requires more than one to be or have something.

Wavelengthsof lightcan be comparedto binary data,that is accumulatingthe simulation,of the webpage,you seem to seeon your screen now.Wavelengths haveno form, coloror depth of filed,as it seemsin this pic simulatingwavelengthsand binary data.

Wavelengths of light can be compared to the binary data, that are accumulating the simulation, of the webpage, you assume to see on your screen right now with words, that seem to form a meaning, and images with colours, that appear to reflect a world in the way believe it to be. But binary data or wavelengths do not have the form, colours or depth of field, that you seem to experience on this page. The same applies to this image simulating them. And they do not know, they are twisted in such a way, so that you think, you see a dimensional world with lots of different appearances.

It is a scientific fact that you do not see any colour or form in the world, but just the wavelength of light hitting the retina of the eye. Colour and form is assigned by the brain to the wavelengths of light, so they seem to show coherent images of a world in the way you have conditioned yourself to perceive it – regardless that all wavelengths of light are colourless as well as formless, and that the motion of the image you seem to see has been extrapolated, so that the time delay in processing it will not interfere with the thoughts or actions, you perceive to happen now.

According to science it is also a fact that everything seen as solid and opaque consist of empty space. In other words, the world of solid forms, that you seem to feel and see, is make-believe. See the article Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings uses several different words for that which is real, namely non-duality, the formlessness of that which is one/you/life, oneness, one perpetual present, eternal now or spirit.

Those words or phrases, however, should only be taken as symbols for that which is real or pointers towards it, even though it is not possible to point to the formlessness of oneness because it requires more than one to look at something. Furthermore, there is nothing outside of the formlessness of oneness, as formlessness is endless, so pointing at it is an illusion.

There is nothing real, because that would imply, there is something not real – and there is nothing but that which is real.

You are not seeing,what you seem to see.It is an illusion.

You do not see what you seem to look at. It is a virtual reality constructed by thoughts, that also is unreal – everything definable is an illusion.

To know is to be in duality
In a simulated reality, all words are, of course, equally illusionary, so to speak as if there is ultimate reality is also an illusion. If only non-duality is real, as noted above, then everything that seems to appear in a world of duality is an illusion including this article.

But even within the context of the world of duality, this page, that you seem to see on an electronic media, is considered to be an illusion. An app has fabricated a layer from the programming code underneath the page to simulate this page, that most humans otherwise would not be able to read.

The whole internet that you may experience as an exciting world is a world layered on top of programming languages like HTML and JAVA. If not transformed by your web browser, you would not be able to perceive this layer on top of the code, that right now appears to be an article about simulated reality.

Screen Shot 2014-12-09 at 09.45.21

A screen dump of the code for the beginning of this article.

This is a screen dump of the source code behind the first part of th article you seem to read now. In the source code you cannot see the header, neither the colours there appear to be around the page, nor the photos or anything else you experience to be there. The code, which is nothing but letters and numbers added together sometime in the past, commands your browser to fabricate this page, when you hit the right buttons, so that you experience it without noticing it is just an artificial layer fabricated on top of code.

You can be compared to code looking at a world of code.

You can be compared to code looking at a world of code.

All your thoughts can be compared to code, that are added together in such a way, that the brain is able to produce images from them of a tangible world, so that you experience it as if you are someone there. The images are layered on top of that which is real by the one making the code, who is also code.

Nobody though has made the code, as non-duality is the formlessness of oneness and as it takes more than one to make code. In other words, this explanation, like the rest of duality, is an illusion, because what is formless is endless, so there is nothing outside of it. That is why this paragraph does not start by saying ´all thoughts are code´ but ´all thoughts can be compared to code´.

There is no explanation to the existence of an illusion, because it does not exist. Yet, in the hack that this article is a part of, namely hack 2.3 Life is flat, and hack #2.5 Size does not matter, you can find more detailed explanations of how a layer of duality is fabricated on top of non-duality by using imagined fragments of non-duality added together in such a way that they appear as if they are dimensional and dual instead of non dimensional and non-dual.

There are also similar explanations elsewhere in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Just remember that any explanation is a fabrication and nothing fabricated is real, because it requires more than one to fabricate something. Hence the only purpose of the explanations in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is to remind you, that only that which is not fabricated is real.

The digital photos that you perceive you see, are layers on top of digital info that no human would perceive as an image of the world. A raw data converter has fabricated a layer on top of the raw digital info in such a way that it triggers memories of the world as you remember it. In the case of the internet, this layer is called a JPEG or PNG file.

The same applies to the text you perceive to see on your screen, it is a layer built on top of nothing but zeros and ones in different combinations. Alexius is not that technically minded so he cannot say, he understands how it works. Neither how the world of duality seems to work as a layer on top of non-duality.

Actually, metaphorically speaking, you are closer to that which is real, namely non-duality, if you do not understand how duality works because it does not work. How can it work when there is nothing but non-duality? It cannot! It is an illusion – and thus not understandable.

To know something is to limit yourself as someone definitive within your knowledge. Not knowing something there are no constraints.

To not know is to not be dual 
Liberation is to not know what, when and where you are, because how can you know that, when that which is you and the formlessness of non-duality cannot differ from each other, as what is formless is endless, so there is no more than that.

The foolish one cannot separate good and bad or right from wrong. All is symbols of that which is life, and therefore all have the same cause – including you and him. So when he can see all is symbols of that which is life so can you, because life is that which you are a symbol of in the world.

The foolish one cannot separate good and bad or right from wrong. Everything definable is perceived as symbols of non-duality, and therefore – despite their apparent difference – the same. This included you and Alexius, of course. When he can see it, so can you, because you are both a symbol of the very same.

You do not need the help from Alexius or anybody else to not know what and where you are. Nor is your own help required, because you do not know what and where you are. You may act like you do so that it seems you are amongst the wise ones, who know the truth.

But as that which is you is no different from non-duality, and as it takes more than one to know something and non-duality is that which is one, knowledge is nothing but fiction made up to cover, that you do not know what and where you are and feel foolish that this is so.

A world of duality consists of contrast – some of the main ones being good versus bad and right versus wrong – so if you do not know right from wrong the belief in being someone definitive in a world of duality cannot survive.

To stop hiding you are a foolish and just like Alexius do not know, what and where you are, what truth is, or how to separate good from bad, it may be helpful to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, where you are not instructed to follow specific steps in order to improve yourself and/or the world but to foolishly forget what and where you believe to be.

Be aware though that being foolish like that is only for those, who have no obligations in a world of duality – children, for instance. No worries! If you have responsibilities, you devote yourself to them by being fully involved in whatever is called for – and so you are on the same track as the foolish one, who knows not much about form but about content, which is that the illusion of form can only be experienced, because of that which is formless, as it is endless and therefore everything.

Where is the key to that which is you? It is not in the body, neither the personality. You say my body, my personality, my mind, my soul, my god. You are the key!

You do not need a teacher to find the key to that which is you. You have the key. Metaphorically speaking it is in your pocket and you will automatically look there, when you want to go home to that which is you. It may be helpful though to read this blog, so you do not follow the naive beliefs of the world of love and whatnot but know where to not look for the key.

You do not need a teacher to find the key to that which is you. You have the key. Metaphorically speaking it is in your pocket, and you will automatically look there when you want to go home. It may be helpful though to follow Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings of undoing the belief in duality instead of one of the naive beliefs of such a world promising you, that the key is to make the world better,.

No one can teach you to be that which is you
It is not possible to learn to be that which is you because there is no difference between that which is you and that which is one and it takes more than one to learn or be anything. If you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you have forgotten, there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. No problem. This forgetfulness can be compared to not remember that your key is in the pocket. It changes nothing. Your home is just the same, and you need no teacher to tell you where the key is. When you want to go home, you automatically check your pockets.

You have the key. In fact you are the key, but if you think you are a person in the world, you will look for it, where it is not, as it is not in the world but in the one imagining it. The imagination includes astral planes and anything conceivable.

You have the key to that which is you. Actually, you are the key. Believing to be a person in the world, however, you will look for it, where it is not, as it is not in a world of duality but in that which makes it possible to imagine such a world.

To not confuse part of duality with non-duality, it may be helpful to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, so you do not look for the key, where it is not. Nothing in a world of duality, though – including ego and whatnot – is a hindrance for finding the key to that which is you, when your appearance there is perceived as if it is

Implementing one of these ways of perceiving a world of duality, you become inclusive, and as duality is not inclusive, the separation that it is based on is slowly but surely excluded from your perception in the sense that the apparent differences in a world of duality no longer seems to make a difference. So although you appear to be there, you are not.

But if the purpose of implementing the duality hacks is to have something, peace for example, it will not last, because nowhere else than in a world of duality does it seem possible to get something, and everything in such a world has an end. Neither will anything last if the purpose of implementing the duality hacks is to return to non-duality, because there is nothing there but that which is one, and it takes more than one to have something at all.

matrix-doorIn the below articles you can read about the non-dimensional nature of non-duality, and how the world of duality is a simulated reality, that, due to your belief in it as real, seems to hide non-duality beneath it.

Everything that appears to be more than one is an illusion

tree-leaf-gif

PART 1:
Life is the formlessness of that which is one, and as formlessness has no dimension everything dimensional is lifeless. Well, it does is not there at all, because what is formless is endless, so there is no more than that which is one. In other words, if you are experiencing a dimensional world where there seems to be more than one, you are hallucinating.

The oneness of life can be compared to the one line in the above animation, and a world defined by time and space to the tree, that it seems to create.

But there is no tree. It is an illusion. If you look closer, you will see, everything in the tree are fragments of one line, that are added together in such a way, that they appear to be different and not just the same line.

ch08_04-660x313

That everything appearing not to be one is an illusion does not mean, that you should look at everything a world defined by time and space as one. As long as you yourself appear to be what you are not, namely someone who differs from others in a world defined by time and space, it would be an illusion to look at such a world as it is the formlessness of that which is one.

A world defined by time and space is a world of separation and since you appear to be there, you have chosen to be separated. Yet this choice confirms the oneness it denies because without it you could not separate from it, so everything that appears to be separated from that which is one is a symbol of it.

If you want to undo, what is not one, you acknowledge the separation, you seem to be part of, but instead of relating to everything as it differs from each other you relate to everything as different symbols of the same, namely that which is one. The more you perceive what seems separated from that which is one as symbols of it, the more you are having the belief in being separated from that which is one undone.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings also suggest hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation, as a remedy to have what is not one undone. The more you pretend to be someone definitive instead of believing to be one, the more this belief is undone, because what you pretend to be you are not.

Some think, they can escape the sense of separation and be in a mix of the world and something spiritual by hugging a so-called spiritual teacher, by chanting, giving unconditional love or similar childish ideas. The idea is in itself a contradiction, as spirit is formless and the world is form. One exclude the other. Besides adding two things together does not make one, and it is only in the world of separation, that it seems two things can be merged. There is nothing to merge in oneness.

Some think they can escape the pain of separation by fusing a world defined by time and space with what they consider to be spiritual by hugging a so-called spiritual teacher, or by chanting, giving unconditional love or similar spaced out ideas. As spirit is formless and the world is nothing but form, they cannot be fused. One excludes the other. Besides adding two things together does not make them one. It is only in the world of separation, it seems that two things can be merged. There is nothing to merge in the formlessness of oneness, as there is no more than that which is one.

Whatever you choose makes no difference, as long as the purpose is to undo the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Unfortunately, most so-called spiritual ways do not have this purpose. Instead, the purpose most often is to make it bearable appearing to be and have more than that which is one, so it seems you can uphold your belief in separation and still be at peace. Such ways are not undoing the belief in what is not one but enhancing it in order to hide that which is one behind gibberish talk of bliss, stillness and other things that requires more than one to experience.

How many black dots can you count?
See the notes below the article for the answer.

PART 2:
That which is life is flat compared to a world defined by time and space, as you can read in the previous article One is one, and one is all there is. As flatness has no dimensions life is so small that it has no form. And as formlessness is endless, there is no more than life. Hence a world defined by time and space is not real, but just like a dream an abstraction of that which is. This illusion is only possible because of reality.

seperator2When used in an article this is a symbol of separation. But it has no power to separate anything, unless you project that onto it.

In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings the words non-duality, life, reality, one perpetual present, spirit, one and oneness, in general, are different words for the same, namely that which is formless and has no beginning and end. In other words, that which is. Those words are limited – they have a beginning and an end like everything else in the world – so they cannot really tell what non-duality, life, reality, one perpetual present, spirit, one and oneness is, but they can point towards it.

1806400lhjy1qql2liy2hg

The bigger it is the more you believe it must be real, but it is the other way around. That which is real, namely life, has no size at all.

In a world defined by time and space most are looking for something bigger and/or better, but what the above words symbolise is neither bigger or better. It is that which is formless, and therefore not in a world defined by time and space, which therefore is lifeless, so if you seem to see such a world, you must be dreaming.

after-watching-a-scary-movie_1140There only seems to be life in the illusionary world of a movie, because it appears to have an effect on someone. You are someone, that have chosen to be an effect of an illusion.

A dream only appears to be there because of the dreamer. Yet the dream is not the dreamer. Likewise, the world only seems to be there because of life, though the world is not that which is life.

The movie you are watching, while wearing 3-D glasses, is not in 3-D. It is a trick. The movie is actually flat. And the world, that you seem to see in 3D from day-to-day, is not dimensional. Even physically speaking it is not so. It is a fabrication made up by the brain.

Ultimately speaking you do not see the world at all, because only that which is one is real, and it takes more than one to see something, so everything that can be seen is not real. In other words, neither you or the world is real. It is a trick. All there is, is one perpetual present.

Be aware, that the above explanations are metaphors used to explain, what cannot be explained. The world is not a dream, but to be compared to a dream. If the world was a dream, there would be someone dreaming about it, and no one is dreaming it. The same applies to the movie metaphor. The world is not a movie, but to be compared to a movie.

Pure-LovePART 3:
Once upon a time Alexius often went for a cup of coffee and to chill out in a restaurant that seemed to fit into the image, he had fabricated of a cosy place. One day, however, he hated the very same things, he used to love the place for.

A relationship can be a bit the same. The exact things that you originally felt attracted to in another person may one day start to irritate you. The heart cannot be trusted. It is only loyal until it sees something better. Then it starts hating what it used to love and wants to replace it with something better or purer. The heart is flimsy and so is the whole experience of being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. It is not founded on reality but on how you think reality should be – and such a foundation is not sound.

There is no world. It is a deception.

There is no world. It is a deception.

It is the brain, that fabricate the images, you seem to ´see´. Actually, the brain can produce perfect images of what seems to be a realistic world out there, even when your eyes are closed. In other words, you are deceived by the brain – but only because you want to.

In every moment since you were born, you have seen the world upside down. That is the way, the reflections of light reaching the eyes, are received. And not before this upside-down image has been corrected by the brain into the collectively agreed image of the world, do you ´see´ the world in the way we all have agreed upon it should look.

eyewk-2ab

This correction goes on all the time along together with so many other corrections. For instance, you do not consider the earth to be flat, although it certainly is experienced like that when you look into the horizon.

»Our eyes are constantly lying to us. If you place a dark filter in front of one eye, your eye will perceive flat objects as having depth, which is known as the Pulfrich effect.« From an article about virtual reality in Macworld.

To make long short: Every experience – no matter if you call it direct or whatever – is a deception, that needs to be corrected. The experience of a substantial world that is produced in the brain with the help of the outer senses is a lie because there is nothing but empty space.

If you look for a deeper understanding or to dig deeper into the matter of something, you are enhancing the belief in a world defined by time and space and therefore fencing off the formlessness of life, since formlessness is flat as can be.

Fortunately, all experiences are corrected in one fell swoop, when the belief that you are a someone definitive is undone because then there is nobody to experience anything.

Nowhere to go

The eye cannot see this pic. It is registered as light divided into red, green and blue by three taps in the eye. This info is sent to the brain, where the same organ process both so-called reality and imagined or virtual reality The three colors are mixed in such a way, that it appears to be an image of someting solid in the world, that can be defined by time and space, even though almost 99% of matter consists of empty space.

Enlightenment of that which is one cannot be known, because there is nobody experiencing it. That is why that in the context of the linear time it may seem to take time to grasp, that you are someone to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one. There may be vague memories of a spiral of colours exploding into one bright white light, that has no form and seems to be opaque as well as transparent.

Someone definitive cannot be enlightened, as the enlightenment of that which is one is formless. No worries. The immense power of light destroys everything that seems to define you and leave it at the threshold of a black hole so that nothing gracefully falls through it into that which is one.

Even though this light is extremely bright, it does not light up the black hole, that you enter – or it may also be that because everything definable has been extracted from you nobody is entering the black hole and therefore the journey through it into that which is one … or it may also be that because it takes more than one to see anything, nothing is seen.

The above is described as if enlightenment of that which is one is a process in time, but this is not so – it is a simultaneously ´thing´, that takes no time. Yet it may seem as if it takes time to realise, that you are to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one.

That is because it is so different from the merry-go-round stories about forever bliss, that the wannabe´s – based on speculations and second-hand knowledge – are writing and talking about, so that one who is compared to the enlightenment of that which is one might think one is wrong, because such one does not know, what enlightenment is and the wannabes seem to know so much about it.

The intensity and speed of enlightenment of that which is one has nothing to do with the dream states of stillness, tranquillity, silence or bliss, that the spiritual merry-go-round people are talking and writing about. You do not enter heaven. Instead, you are abruptly destroyed at the threshold of a black hole. Nothing is left of what you appeared to be in a capsule of time and space – neither consciousness, soul or self.

Nothing that can be defined exist
Returning from the enlightenment of that which is one as someone definitive in a capsule of time and space, you have not become wiser, and because all those considered to be spiritual 
like to give the impression of them being very wise, you think they know something, you do not know. But it is the other way around.

They know nothing but have a big need to appear as if they do. And one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one knows the only thing there is to know, namely that there is no more than that which is one. In other words, a world where there seems to be more than one is non-existing – including angels, astral planes and whatnot.

There is no heaven, least of all heaven on earth. There is nothing, and that is why you ultimately have no choice. There is no self to realise. You do not exist. Neither does anything else because it takes more than one to exist, and there is no more than that which is one.

But most have invested so much energy in a world where there seems to be more than one, that they are willing to kill Jesus or anybody else, who says »They can’t say, ´Here it is!´ or ´There it is!´ You see, the kingdom of God is within you.« Luke 17:21

There is no time and space in one perpetual present
The above quote is not to be understood as god is inside of you. The word god was originally a symbol of that which is, and as that is all there is since it is formless and therefore endless, everything defined by time and space must be outside of that which is.

Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It may appear as if there is an inside to this man, but there is neither an inside or outside. The perceived dimensions of him is an illusion fabricated by you based on how you are conditioned to see a world defined by time and space. But there is nobody in this image. It is an illusion made from zeros and ones. Even in the context of the image, there is nothing inside the man, because the image is as flat as can be. This applies to everything you seem to see in a world defined by time and space, because it is a fantasy made out of empty space.

That is as seen from a world defined by time and space, but actually, there is no inside and outside. This does not mean, that ultimately inside and outside is the same. There is literally no inside and outside. There is ´only´ that which is. In other words, one perpetual present without time and space.

When everything appears to be the same, there is nothing to define
As a person in the world, you cannot choose to not be defined by time and space because choosing is definable. But you can choose to see everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one.

Doing so, you are not abruptly destroyed like in the enlightenment of that which is one. Instead, the belief in being someone definitive is slowly but surely being undone the more you perceive everything as symbols of that which is one, which is hack #2 in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

Except for the enlightenment of that which is one the same applies to the other duality hacks. In other words, they allow you to enjoy being in a capsule of time and space, while at the same time undoing the belief that you are there. Plain devotion or desperation may also undo the belief in being someone definitive.

Being exhausted, defocused or at the point at given up are other simple ways of forgetting what and where you are, so that there is nothing to define you as someone definitive and therefore nothing to hide the formlessness of that which is one is no different from that which is you.


NOTES:

You can read more about the enlightenment of that which is one in the below hacks. Do not expect though to be enlightened. That is a wish of the special self (read more about that here), and it does not exist so it cannot be enlightened, neither can anything that seems to exist, because it takes more than one to exist, and there is no more than for one in the enlightenment of that which is one:

This article is part of hack 2.3 Choosing or not.

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.

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

It is 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 bad 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. Actually, 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.

What is unreal is right in front of you

A world of duality can be compared to this box in the Augmented Hand Series. When you stick your hand into it an app changes it on the screen, and the brain fools you into feeling it is happening to you.

Even though a fairy tale is built with elements from the physical world, it cannot be found in the tale, which is a simulated world, fabricated by a writer. The characters have no free will. They can never leave the story and be part of the physical world because they are not physical but symbols of it.

A world of duality can be compared to a fairy tale. Nothing in it is real and can never be, and no one can ever leave or transcend it. The Augmented Hand Series called Flong by Golan Levin and Collaborators can be used to illustrate this through its interactive art.

In the Augmented Hand Series you can watch your hand take on a life of its own. Here your fingers grow to varying lengths.

In the Augmented Hand Series you can watch your hand take on a life of its own. Here your fingers grow to varying lengths.

When you stick your hand in a little box – see the above animation – you experience the hand on the screen changing its amount of fingers and moving them in its own right without you doing anything or having any influence over what happens. No one has. What the hand does is nothing but preprogrammed mechanical movements controlled by an app.

The little box and the screen create a disconnect between what the eye sees, the body feels and the brain processes. Some look into the box to see if it is really happening to their hand. It feels like it is. That is what the brain is telling them to believe based the info it received through the eyes, even though the hand on the screen is not part of them.

The human brain can be compared to the app, that is made to simulate your hand on the screen in ´the Augmented Hand Series´ illustrated in this article, as in a world of duality all experiences are simulations processed by the brain – also experiences like coming from the heart or living in the now. It is just a trick – and so is meditation.

It is impossible, but yet you feel it is happening.

These movements are not possible. Yet you feel like they are happening.

The world of duality is not really happening. It is a simulated world and you are not in it. Yet it feels so because you metaphorically speaking have put yourself in a little box, where an app called the brain twist that which is you into a world of duality. And as it is not real, it needs not to be stopped. Actually, it cannot be stopped. If it could, it would be real. But you can stop perceiving the apparent differences in a world of duality to make a difference because without differences there is no separation and hence no time and space to hide the formlessness of non-duality.

While you feel, you are in a world of duality nothing needs to be done, improved or transcended. It is all make-believe – including living in the now, love, astral planes and other concepts like that – and when you know that, you know you are not there. In other words, you are in the world but not of it.

The impossible can be fun, when you know it is not real.

The impossible is fun when you know it is not real. In a simulation, you can play out your fantasies and achieve the impossible without any risk because you are not there.

One way of undoing the belief in a world of duality is to pretend to be someone in a world of duality instead of believing to be there (hack #1). Another way is – in the context of the disassociated hand metaphor and hack #2 that this article is a part of – to see the disassociated hand as a symbol of the real hand.

A shortcut to undoing the belief in a world of duality, so that nothing hides the non-duality of that which is you is to not know what and where you are, contrary to knowing yourself as that requires more than one, and that which is you is one.

The duality hacks are not accompanied by soft music with sounds from whales, pictures of rosy lotus flowers, promises of a better world, fantasies of love and togetherness, higher states of consciousness or other attributes from a simulated reality.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings have nothing to promise but that which is you will never change, neither will it end. That being said, as long as you seem to appear in a world of duality, you can play with any of beginning, change and end.

If you like love, by all means, go for it. In the case of Alexius, he likes to pretend, that he loves his cats, and miss them when he does not perceive them to be there, even though nothing can leave that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless. Whatever you pretend is not a problem in regards to that which is one, because what you pretend, you are not.

You can also choose to see love as symbols of that which is you so that which is you does not seem to be altered, while you play with a simulated reality of that which is you.

This is just another way to say, that you can never go wrong if you choose one of the above duality hacks. But it is not to say, that they are the only ones. Ultimately it does not matter, what you choose, because that which is you is one, so no choice is possible.

Most will know, that what you see in this image is not a man and a woman, but symbols of man and woman. Most also know, that the color or the look of the symbols in no way resembles actual men and woman. Unfortunately very few know, that all what they seem to experience in the world of duality is not real, but symbols of that which is, although the symbols in no way resembles that which is life.

Unfortunately very few know, that all that they experience in a world where there seems to be more than one is not real, but symbols of that which is, although the symbols in no way resemble that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

What is life? This question was asked at the beginning of hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life, that this article is part of, but so far it has not been answered. The reason is very simple. As life is the formlessness of oneness and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one, and as it takes more than one to answer the question, it cannot be answered.

But as we appear to be in a world where there is more than one and Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings operates within this context here at the end of hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life the answer is that life is one perpetual present. This answer, unfortunately, has no meaning in a world where the present is considered to be a point squeezed in between the past and future. Even within the concept of such a world, this point is an illusion, as everything experienced as if it now consists of various images from the past.

A knife can be used in many ways – for instance in the kitchen to prepare nourishing food. But it can also be used to prepare junk food, that, even though its flavour may excite you, will not nourish you. Furthermore it can even be used for killing. Likewise the illusion of the world can be used to undo your belief in it. But it can also use it to enhance your belief in it, by pumping you up with all sorts of junk, so that you appear to be and have more than that which is one.

Everything that has an end is an illusion because that which is real has no end. Illusions though has to be powered by something, and as that which is life is all there is, it must be the power making it possible for illusions appear as if they are real. But just like electricity is not in a room illuminated due to it, the power of life is not in an illusion empowered by it.

The duality hacks in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are just as illusionary as anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, but if one or more of them seem to be your cup of tea by all means go for them. Doing so both the illusion of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings and the world where they appear to will be undone – or rather the belief that you appear as someone ithere. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As there is nothing real in a world where there seems to be more than one, hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life is of course also an illusion. But as the application of it undoes the belief in such a world, it can be used as your way back to the formlessness of oneness.

This is not to suggest, that you have your own way. There is no way out of a world where there seems to be more than one, as there is no more than that which is one. But as it feels good perceiving everything believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one you may as well go down that road if you belive to be someone there, because it does not matter what way you go, when you see everything as a symbol of the same.

EPILOGUE:
When I watch the world, a voice inside of me reacts to everything, by saying foolish things about it. Yet it is those foolish ideas that make a world where there seems to be more than one appears to be real.

It seems this voice has a will of its own, but that is not so. It is me and nobody else, who have asked it to monitor everything like this in order to confirm me as someone definitive there. As I do not find that exciting anymore but quite boring, I have given it another command, which is to always say, that everything perceived is another symbol of that which cannot be perceived, as it takes more than one to perceive something, namely that which is one.

To keep this command in place I write my non-teachings so that I constantly am reminding both you and me, that since that which is one is formless it is endless. Thus there is no more than that which is one.

A world where there seems to be more than one is therefore just a fantasy, and when nothing in it is judged to be ugly or beautiful, everything is just like clouds of empty space. And though I do not know the oneness that those clouds symbolise, because it takes more than one to know something, it feels great that just are symbols, as that means their apparent difference does not make a difference, and so there do not appear to be more than one.

Kind regards
Alexius


NOTE: This article is an epilogue to hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life.

All experiences are equally unreal

The experience of seeing this pic is as all other experiences – including so-called spiritual ones – fabricated in the brain. Nothing real is fabricated, but that which is real can be used to imagine a fabricated reality. Though that which is real is not in the simulation, the reason the simulation seems to be there is that which is real. Therefore everything in the simulated world of duality can be seen as symbols of that which is real.

The experience of seeing this image is like all other experiences – including so-called spiritual ones and coming from the heart – fabricated in the brain that are simulating a tangible world where there seems to be more than one, on top of the formlessness of that which is one. The formlessness of that which is one is not in the simulation of a tangible world that is no more tangible than this image. But as that which is one is formless, it is endless, so the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion. You could say, that the illusion symbolises that which is real because without it you could not imagine a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Experiences of god and other so-called spiritual concepts are fabrications manufactured by the brain in which they just like mundane experiences can be measured physically. The idea of you being someone definitive in a body governed by a mind or a soul is also fabricated by the brain, that is nothing more than a labyrinth of fat and synapses, which passes electrical signals from cell to cell.

The confident appearance of knowing what is right covers a feeling of being wrong. Instead of facing this, it seems easier to suppress it by blaming others for being wrong.

In other words, whether you are having ordinary or so-called spiritual experiences, or experience to come from the heart, to be governed by chakras and whatnot, all your experiences are fabricated by electrical impulses in the brain (read more about that here).

Trying to collect bits and pieces from n after image of a universe, that is no more.

The afterimage
All that you think and do has already been set in progress millions of years ago. The reason everything could be predicted then is that in non-linear time, the birth and the death of the world appears simultaneously. In other words, the world is no more. The whole story of the universe starts and ends at the very same moment.

»When you dig into molecules, and the states of ion channels, enzymes, transcription programs, cells, synapses, and whole networks of neurons, you come to realise that there is no one place in the brain where memories are stored,« says Kukushkin. This is because of a property called plasticity, the feature of neurons that memorize. The memory is the system itself. From an article in Wired.

You are hanging onto some remaining data or some fragments, that can be compared to an afterimage of the universe or memories of it. Actually, what you appear to be is nothing but honeycombed memories. To make sense of them, you try to fill the gaps with fragments of love, god and other lofty ideas.

Hanging onto after images is like hanging onto the fragments of a dream or of a beloved, who is dead, but with whom you still have an internal dialogue. You can compared it to having an app, that has collected everything your beloved ever has written on social media, so that you still can have the experience of chatting with your beloved, though he/she is dead.

And it seems very real, because the dead one will answer you in the way you are accustomed to and use info from for example Wikipedia, so the chat will not seem dated. Maybe the app also is able to collect all the dead ones telephone conversations and put fragments of it together in such a way, that it seems as if you are having a real conversation with a live person – though that person has no mouth and is nothing but data collected from the cloud.

The dead one may even be reconstructed as a robot implemented with artificial intelligence and texture-mapped skin constructed to appear as on the best looking pictures from the past, so that you can relive your best memories of being together. The robot receives ´thoughts´ stored in the cloud, so it can react like you expect – or maybe surprise you with kinky sex based on pornographic videos from the internet.

Once in a while, when it fails to act like in your memories, you may freak out and suspect something is wrong. But since you appear to feel something, you conclude it must be real and not just a simulation layered on top of reality, that you forget as long as you want to believe the simulation will give you something better than reality.

What seems to be reality is an imagination
A single part of the brain processes perceived reality in the present moment as well as through memories past plus imagined states, symbols and metaphors. To the brain, there is no difference between what is perceived as real and what is considered imaginary, metaphors, spiritual and whatnot.

It is not that this info is stored anywhere in the brain, as you can read about in the article Wired, that are referred to above. Hence the brain is this info, and as the world is in the eye of the beholder, so is the world and the person you appear to be there.

In other words, everything experienced is make-believe, and that is why you cannot know reality, find the truth or realise that which is you. But by pretending to be someone definitive ´there´, you can realise what you are not. Recognising that, you know, that you do not know what and where you are, which is the invitation the enlightenment of that which is one* has been waiting for.

Just like all appearances in a dream are illusions symbolising the world the dreamer lives in, everything in the world are illusions symbolising that which is real, namely that which is you.

Until then enjoy pretending to be someone definitive, that seems to have spiritual experiences of inner peace or feel excitement by watching a football match. It does not matter what person you appear to be when you know, it is not you, but a symbol of that which is you.

You cannot do anything wrong when perceiving everything as symbols of oneness, because doing something wrong is also a symbol of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Whatever you do is fine
That your appearance does not matter is what makes seeing everything in the world as symbols of that which is you so beautiful. No matter what you do, think or feel it is not real but symbols of that which is. You do not have to believe in anything specific, but if you like to believe in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings or something else, it is not a problem, because no matter what you do, it is a symbol of that which is you.

If you follow Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, you do not have to like it all. What you do not like is also a symbol of that which is you.

There are no steps or philosophy, that you must follow to come back to that which you as a person in the world symbolises, namely that which is you. Whatever you seem to think, feel or do as a person in a world where there seems to be more than one is fine, because everything is a symbol of that which is you, and that is no different from that which is one.

This image would not appear to consist of a forest and whatever else you imagine to be there, if not for memories. The belief that someone sees this is also due to them. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

APPENDIX 1:
Although the suggestions for new music coming from, for example, Spotify or Apple Music seems to suit your taste of music, they are not made by you, neither by someone who knows you. Likewise, the thoughts coming to you suggesting this and that are not made by you, neither by someone who knows you.

All problems are gone, when you do not know what and where you are, as that means there is nobody to use thoughts to construct concepts of good and bad. Hence there is nothing to worry about.

There is no you. Just like what you appear to be to the bots from Spotify and Apple Music is made up by algorithms, what you believe to be in a world defined by time and space is made up from memories. That includes where ever you appear to be and the one appearing to believe this. Without memories, there does not appear to be something, where there is nothing but the formlessness of that which is one.

And as formlessness is endless, a world defined by time and space is not possible to experience without it. Hence the all the memories compiling the fantasy of being someone definitive in a world defined by time and space confirm the formlessness of that which is one – especially when choosing to see everything memorised as symbols of that which cannot be memorised, since it is that which is one and it takes more than one to remember anything.

APPENDIX 2: The universe is dying. It is only a matter of time. And when it is all over, there is no more time. Hence there never was a world defined by time and space – just one perpetual present.

»After a short, productive explosion of early activity, the universe has begun its long mope towards oblivion. To the extent that anything was ever important, it won’t be. Time, space, energy, matter – all gone … That’s right: Everything you know and love, the entire universe of possible things, will be gone.« from the article The End of the Universe published in Wired.

NOTES:

  • The quote box is inspired by an episode of Black Mirror called Be Right Back and the concept of ´hanging onto some remaining data or fragments´ is inspired by the movie Source Code. The scientific info about the brain Alexius has found somewhere, so all in all the article is the usual mismatch the brain likes to combine to make an illusion seem interesting. The experience of this specific illusion, however, may be beneficial in regards to see that all ant experience, whether it appears to be mundane, direct, spiritual, or whatnot is an illusion.
  • Regarding where thoughts are coming from see also the article Thoughts do not come from you but The Cloud, that just like this article is part of hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life.
