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, as it requires more than one to point 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 about this in hack # 3.5 Non-duality is non-fabrication. Just remember that any explanation is a fabrication and nothing fabricated is real, as 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, for example, that you think 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

You can find these duality hacks by clicking here.

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.

Go with the flow

Digital art like this starts with and effort for me and then I effortlessly go with the flow.

Digital art like this starts with an effort for Alexius, and then he effortlessly go with the flow – on his iPhone by the way in the case of this image. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Effortlessly living does not mean, that no actions are performed, but that they are not performed by you. All actions though cannot be effortless. It is not an effortless action to experience a world in 3D where there seems to be more than one.

The reality of life is flat since it that which is one and it takes more than one to be dimensional, so it requires much effort to separate from it and observe it in different angles from the outside in order to fabricate an illusion of time and space.

This original effort is the reason, you seem to appear in a 3D world. This effort is upheld as long as you are motivated to be someone definitive in such a world. Often the motivation for this is to be or find something larger than life, and as life is that which is one, you assume that by having more than one you are larger than life.

There is nothing larger than life
But as that which is one is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one. In other words, it is not possible to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet you think that it is – otherwise, you would not believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

And as long as you are amazed by all the big things, you seem to be able to have in a world where there seems to be more than one, you will choose to let the excitement deceive you into believing that more power, more money, more love, more freedom, more transcendence, more consciousness, more oneness and whatnot will make your life larger.

Appearing to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot know that which is you because it is no different from that which is one. In other words, there is no way of knowing how to return to that which is you. Yet going with the flow you automatically return to that which is you – or rather stop believing that you are someone definitive – just like a river automatically returns to the sea.

More, however, always wants more, so you will never be satisfied no matter how much more you become or have. When you sense this, you can start undoing the original effort of separation by ´living´ effortlessly in a world where there seems to be more than one instead of pushing your way around there. It is not possible though to be nothing but effortless in a world built on effort, but it is possible to not build more on the original effort.

Let us say you want to go on a trip. You make an effort going to the bus, but when you sit there, you do not add to this effort by pushing the trip. The bus is gonna take you effortlessly to where ever, you had planned to go. That is if the bus is going the way, you thought it would drive.

If the bus drives another way, and you do not make an effort to change its route, you will without any effort have a completely new experience, provided you do not try to compare it to past experiences. But if the bus does not start at all, and you try to push it instead of leaving it, you are practising the opposite of being effortless and thereby enhancing the original effort of separation.

In other words, everybody knows where the river goes, provided no effort is made to control it. So if not interfering with the flow you go home – or rather you find out, you never left it.

Effortlessly receiving and giving a hug at the hospital, where I without any effort of mine was brought by a helicopter. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Effortlessly Alexius hiked down the mountain in a rainforest until he could get no further due to the impenetrable plantation of thorny lianas. For several reasons it was impossible to climb up the mountain again, so when it was about to get dark he called for help and was promised to get it early next morning. He stayed there overnight laying on the ground amongst lizards and whatnot. Help did not come the next morning, however, because no human could go there, he was told.

After being stuck there for two days without food and water, he was finally without any effort of his wired up in a helicopter, that brought him to a hospital, where friends came to visit him. So without pushing himself or anybody else, one exciting experience led to another.

It was extremely peaceful staying overnight in the rainforest just lightened up by the stars above, and it was intensely beautiful experience hanging in the air between the forest and the helicopter. Nothing was planned, everything was free and no effort was required.

You want to be more happy so you feel less loss.

PART 2:
The wheels of the world keep spinning because nobody ever has enough. Everybody wants to be and have more.

Not everybody though is able to adjust to the quest for more power or the recognition and respect that seems to come from getting more money, so they follow other systems than the capitalistic one. Maybe they turn into a socialist and look for more power and freedom for the people. Or maybe they become a spiritual person searching for more love, purity and higher power. But it is all the same. This desire for more is based on a feeling of loss, which is an illusion, since that which is you is no different from the formlessness of oneness, and as formlessness is endless that which is you are and have everything.

So the feelings of loss are just reminders, that you are not someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one – and welcomed like that they turn into joy. If not, you will participate in the quest to be or have more, so that feelings of loss and inferiority can be covered by the feeling of being more special and important. Maybe as an important politician, who is gonna change the world to the better or a highly evolved spiritual adviser, who is gonna help others find themselves – as if improving the illusion of the world will change anything to the better by or as if anybody can find themselves in an illusion.

The loss seems to appear when you imagine, there is more than that which is one by dividing it into more than one, basically, an observer and something observed. Though it is not possible to split the formlessness of that which is one into more than one, an observer seems to be confirmed as real by the observed and vice versa.

According to an article recently published in the journal Nature Communications a team split a single photon in half and transmitted it to two separate labs. Upon analysis, they found that the particle not only exists until its observed but that it never showed up in both labs at the same time. The particle you are not looking at ceases to exist.

To help somebody the same principle is at work. Although there is no more than that which is one, and therefore nobody to help, the imagination that you help somebody or are being helped by somebody enhances the belief in you as being someone definitive.

That is why there is a whole industry of gurus and do-gooders, who want to help you observe the world so that separation and therefore the feeling of loss is enhanced, instead of listening to Quantum Physics, who basically says, there is no world unless you look at it. In other words, without observing it, there is no loss, abundance or anything else you have learned about because there is no more than that which is one.

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.

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:

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.

Holding onto after images.

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 skin has been texture-mapped.

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.

Thoughts do not come from you but The Cloud

All thoughts are in the cloud circling around you. What you seem to think depends on what frequencies in the cloud you connect to – it is just like a radio, where you choose a specific station to play the music you like, but you do not make the music.

You do not make your thoughts. All thoughts come from a sphere circling around you. What you seem to think depends on the frequencies you connect to. This connection can be compared to a computer connected to the cloud. What it receives from the cloud determines its look and way to go. In other words, just like a computer, you do not produce what you receive, but unlike the computer, you choose how to perceive what you receive.

In the digital world, the future is all about having all data (from you and anything else in the world including traffic lights, refrigerators and whatnot) connected on the internet and stored in what is called the cloud, so a person can download and use the data when needed.

The amount of data, however, is gonna too overwhelming so you will need help in organising it to find out what you need. For this, there will be intelligent sensors, that compare data and decides – according to how they are programmed – what you need. Just like Spotify and Apple Music in each, their own way decides what music you need, and Amazon tells you what books and whatnot to buy.

In some new text editors you only need to write the first word, and then the text editor based on a program suggest a whole sentence. Some text editors are programmed to assume it knows better than you what to write, and it involves much determination not to blindly follow the suggestions.

Many articles in the news nowadays are not written by humans but by robots, who of course have no idea about what they are writing. Actually, your brain is already working like this. You do not think. Mechanical routines are behind the decisions you believe to make.

In the years to come more and more apps on your smartphone will talk together via the cloud – with the help of Dropbox, Google Drive, Apple iCloud, Amazon Cloud or something new – and based on your digital patterns they will tell you what you need before you know it. Soon privacy will be history because everybody knows, all that they are as a person in the world can be found in the cloud.

cloud-chained

The cloud of the internet.

Where do the ideas to connect everything in the cloud come from. They are channelled by you. Any person, who tune in to the appropriate channel, can channel these ideas because they are all around you in what can be compared to the cloud – or what Jungian psychology calls archaic patterns.

It is not your doing, that you do not fall of the Earth. It is due to gravity – a force pulling together all matter. Likewise thoughts are not your doing.

The reason everything can be predicted is, that all that you think have been in the cloud for millions of years. This also applies to so-called spiritual experiences through for example meditation. They are just channelled from somewhere else in the cloud than more mundane experiences.

A human being is as empty as a radio in the sense that it has no self, soul or consciousness. It is nothing but an appearance governed by mechanics – and just like nothing coming out of a radio is made by itself, nothing coming out of a human is self-made.

You as a person in the world is to be compared to a machine connected to the cloud. You do not think yourself. You download the thoughts from the cloud and because of the constant connection with it you have all the info needed to act out your personality no matter where you go in the world. That is if you do not use the artificial intelligence you are fitted with to override the electrical impulses from the cloud.

Because so many persons want to be more than a just a piece of machinery following commands from the cloud, they override the electrical impulses from it with the result, that they feel disconnected and lost. To solve this they download thought from the cloud about how to make a better world, where everything is connected all the time through the internet, so you are free from physical limitations and via virtual reality can go where ever you fancy and even make love to your favourite movie star.

In this new world you will also live longer due to the body is going to have sensors embedded, that are connected with the internet from where you are constantly monitored and analysed in order to optimise your health.

It is easy to download the ideas for such a digital world, because basically it is just a replicate of the world, as it already is, although most have forgotten, that all appearances in the world – including themselves – are nothing but lifeless machines.

As a person in the world, you seem to be in a body, that you considers yours. But you are not free to go where you want to. The GPS coordinations for your trip has already been entered. All you can do is to choose how to perceive the ride.

As a person in the world, you appear to be in a body considered to be yours. But you are not free to go where you want. The GPS coordination for your trip has already been entered. All you can do is to choose how to perceive it. It can be compared to be inside a self-driving car, that just like you has no self, which thinks out where to go. It simply follows signals from the cloud and goes where they instruct it to go.

The body, that you function in as a person in the world, is to be compared to a Google Self-driving Car. It seems to have a personality, but even though it is self-driving it has no self, that decides, where to go. It does not know, where to go and how to avoid accidents, but via the cloud, sensors are guiding it to take the right decisions so that it seems, it drives by itself. Neither does the car have a soul – and it can never actually meet another car. Nobody is there. It is all mechanics controlled by the cloud.

You seem to be a substance called a person, but it is an illusion. The body is made up of empty space, and the only reason you seem to see and feel it, is because sensors from the cloud know – based on your digital history – that this is what you wish to experience.

You seem to be a substance called a person, but it is an illusion. What you believe to be is nothing but empty space, and the only reason it feels solid is that sensors from the part of the cloud, that you are connected to, instruct you to feel that.

Inside the body, that is to be compared to a Google Self-driving Car, you can choose to look out the window and experience the world passing by. But you cannot choose, where to go. It is determined by the decisions, the senses receive from the cloud. You can, however, choose from where in the cloud the sensors receive their info. And most importantly you can choose how to perceive the ride.

The way you perceive the car and the ride in it determines, if everything is over when the mechanics of the car cease to work, or if it is a transition returning you to that which makes it possible to experience the ride.

Ways of perceiving the ride, so you return to that which makes it possible to experience it, could be to see everything on the ride as symbols as of that which makes it possible – or to pretend being a person instead of believing to be that, because what you pretend to be, you are not. These approaches you can read more about this in the article From non-duality to duality and back.

Everything in this article is from the cloud.

In the context of the metaphor of this article, not so much the article but what you experience to read is downloaded from the cloud. Yet everything from the cloud is fake. Hence the examples in this article and other ones of mine should not be taken too literally. They are to be compared with fairy tales, that you read for stray kids in order to shed some light on what and where they are, so they can find their way home.

In the case of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings though, it is more about where they are not. That which is, is not in the cloud or the world supported by the cloud. It does not even know about a world, that appears via the implementation of data from the cloud – just like electricity does not know the world illuminated by a bulb.

If this article seems weird, it is because, it is weird to believe, that which is you can be in a world defined by time and space fabricated by lifeless data supported by an artificial thing called the cloud. That which is you is formless and therefore endless, so it is not possible to be someone definitive in a world defined by time and space.

So if you want to return from the illusion of the world to that which is real, it is not a matter of leaving it, as you are not there, but a matter of having the belief that you are someone definitive undone. This belief can be undone by not identifying with your appearance in a world defined by time and space and instead perceive it as a symbol for that which makes this experience possible, namely the formlessness of that which is you.

Nothing that can be seen is real

Photo of forced perspective by Erin O’Keefe

This photo by Erin O’Keefe has a forced perspective, where the feeling of space and the accepted reality of it does not necessarily align.

Perceived from a world of duality, non-duality is totally flat, because it is formless and therefore without any dimensions. Since it for the same reason has no beginning and end, there is no more than non-duality. Consequently, everything that has a dimension is an illusion.

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 appears to be a realistic world out there, even with eyes closed. In other words, you are deceived by the brain – but only because you want to.

Appearing to be a person in a world of duality, you may believe that a world defined by time and space is real, but it is just as illusionary as the above flat photo by Erin O’Keefe, that has been fabricated to fool you into experiencing it as dimensional.

»In architecture I love the idea of forced perspective. You can use space to manipulate people’s impressions of the space. The feeling of the space and the reality of the space doesn’t necessarily align.« Erin O’Keefe in the article ´Mind-Bending Dioramas That Distort How You See Reality´ from Wired and from where the above picture is taken.

As it is not possible to fabricate something that is formless, the formlessness of non-duality is not an illusion – and as that which is formless cannot be seen, everything that can be seen is not real. What is not real though symbolises that which is real, namely the formlessness of non-duality.

In hack #2.3 Life is flat you can read about the flatness of non-duality, and how a world of duality is a simulated reality layered on top of non-duality. The layer is fabricated by imagining, that it is possible to be outside of non-duality, and in such separated state use fragments of it added together, so that they appear to form a dimensional world, where there seems to be more than one moving around in space and time.

The more fragments there are added, the more the world of duality mistakenly appears to be the one and only reality. This includes the appearance of god and other so-called spiritual beings. The first separation from non-duality is actually done by what is perceived to be an almighty god, which immediately multiplies the fragmented into a simulated layer of reality called the universe.

This is not meant to say, it is bad to believe in god. You cannot appear in a world of duality without believing in something, and whether it is god, satan, love or another concept, you believe in is all the same. Actually, whatever you totally devote yourself to will dissolve any layer of illusion.

This article is actually a layer on top of code of HTML etc, that has no pics – only words, that are sent to your browser commanding it to fabricate an appearance of this article. But that code is also a layer. It sits on top of the basic computer code. Nothing, that seems to appear via the computer, is real.

This article is actually a layer on top of computer code, that you can see a part of in this screen dump of the code of the article. There are no photos to see in it – only words, which are sent to your browser commanding it to fabricate an appearance of an article illustrated by photos. This code, however, is also a layer, that sits on top of the basic code of your electronic media. In other words, everything, that seems to appear on the screen of an electronic media is a simulation– just like everything in a world of duality is a simulation.

Within the context of duality, this article, you seem to read on an electronic media, is a layer that an app has fabricated from the programming code underneath the article, which most humans would not be able to perceive as this article.

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

This digital photo does not have the look, that you expect a digital raw converter to produce. You also expect the real world to be in colours. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A digital photo is layered on top of raw digital info, that no human would perceive as a photo. The image that seems to be there is a layer constructed by a raw data converter into – in the case of the internet – a JPEG or PNG image.

To make long short: What you seem to see in a world of duality is always a layered illusion on top of another layer of illusion. It is, however, a misunderstanding to peel off layers to get to that which is not an illusion. Dealing with layers – whether you experience them to be made by thoughts, feelings and whatnot –confirms them to be real, though only that which cannot be experienced is real.

Wavelengths of light can be compared to binary data, that are accumulating the simulation, of the webpage, that you consider to see on your screen right now. Wavelengths have no form, color or depth of field, as it seems in this pic simulating a mixture of wavelengths and binary data.

INTERLUDE:
Not just ultimately speaking but also physically, you do not see colours or any forms, but 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 produce coherent images of the world in the way you have conditioned yourself to perceive it – regardless that all wavelengths of light actually are colourless as well as formless, and that the motion of the image, the brain use time to process, has been extrapolated, so that the time delay in processing does not interfere with the thoughts or actions, you perceive to happen now.

Scientifically speaking everything seen as opaque and substantial consist of nothing but empty space manipulated by the brain into an experience as something tangible. In other words, the world that you seem to feel and see is make-believe.

In an augmented reality created via special glasses, your digitally altered face can be seen like that by others also make those special glasses.

In augmented reality, that can appear via special glasses, for example, your face can digitally be altered like in this image and seen in the same way by others wearing similar glasses. This image is grabbed from an article about augmented reality.

PART 2:
Let us say you have invited a friend for dinner tomorrow and plan to serve ravioli with pesto sauce. The same moment you are imagining this, the same moment it is served. The more concrete and material image of it, that arrives tomorrow in a slightly different version is an afterimage of the more transparent version, you had in your mind.

Not all that you imagine arrives as an after image. The engine of the world is to be compared to a beta version of an app, so not everything works as it is supposed to.

Time and space in the world of a game like Super Mario is construction, and everything that can possibly happen there is pre-programmed. Events may seem to progress in time, but they are all stored together on a tiny spot without any time and space in between them. In other words, small and big is an illusion, so is past and future and the vastness of the world is simply an illusion made by the play of light on the screen.

Maybe without knowing it, the makers of games like that are replicating how the world – included bonus ones like astral worlds – is fabricated, namely in the exact same way as a video game.

The new technology called AR – augmented reality – can also be used to demonstrate this. You put on some glasses, that changes what you see in front of you according to how they are programmed so that you appear to participate in a virtual world fabricated on top of – and from elements of – the physical world.

Everything in the virtual world appears to be as real as in the physical world – just like chatting on social media exactly like chatting in the physical world makes you feel something, although social media is virtual.

»We have absorbed the internet into our nervous systems, and it has made us different,« says Canadian director David Cronenberg, who is very fascinated by technology, in the article David Cronenberg on Predicting the Future and What a Dog’s Reality Is Like.

AR glasses can also be programmed to give you a special appearance, so that other persons with the same kinds of glasses will see you with the programmed appearance of your choice.

The world. that you think you see, can be compared to what you see wearing glasses, that are programmed to make a world where there seems to be more than one appear on top of that which is one.

It seems, that only one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one grasps, that what normally is perceived to be the world is just an artificial reality layered on top of that which is real. It is like everybody is wearing glasses programmed to see a world where there seems to be more than one, although there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one since formlessness is endless.

¡¡¡ Reality is right in front of you. All you have to do is to take off the glasses, that appears to make a world that can be seen on top of that which cannot be seen, namely that which is one !!!


NOTES:

From non-duality to duality and back

It is not possible to drink the water from the bottle in this pic, because the bottle is a simulation – but it is possible to imagine to drink the water. The imagination will never quench your thirst though.

It is not possible to drink the water from the bottle in this image, because the bottle is a simulation – but it is possible to imagine drinking it. This imagination though will never quench your thirst. Likewise it is not possible to be fulfilled in a world where there seems to be more than one, as it is nothing but a simulated reality on top of that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That which is one

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

Schräge Parallelen

Nothing in the world is what is seems to be. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

What if that which is one …

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

This still photo of Scarlett Johansson in ´Lucy´ is grabbed from the internet.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

At the time of writing this article, the most well-known example of AR (augmented reality) was probably Google glasses, where a digital simulation of the physical world is mixed with the actual physical world via eternally being connected to the internet. You can read about another kind of AR glasses, that changes how you appear to others, in my recent article What is unreal, is right in front of you.

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

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

That which is one is replaced by the belief in more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Enlightenment of that which is one undoes the belief in more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That which is one is one perpetual present

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


NOTES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IMG-CAPA-IOT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality

Even though the man in the hospital dress probably is in another state of mind than his family, who is visiting and though they appear to be very different it makes no difference, when all appearances are perceived to be symbols of that which is life. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no life in the world where you experience to be, though that is what is making it possible to experience it – just like the electronic media being used to play a video game is not in the world of the game. Nothing in the game is real.

In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings life is another word for that which is one, non-duality, spirit, formlessness or one perpetual present. Some may associate those words with god, but in the context of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, not a god or anything else is the source of life, as it is that which is one and since it takes more than one to make something life does not create anything. See also All experiences are equally unreal.

Just like the hack Pretending to be someone definitive the new one Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality presents a way to undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, while you still appear to be someone there. In other words, in the transition from appearing in a world where there seem to be more than one to the formlessness of which is one, you can have your cake and eat it too – you are in the world and not of it.

This hack starts off as a continuance of the previous hack Pretending to be someone definitive and then slowly evolves into seeing everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as a symbol of that which is one. Just like – within the context of such a world – you do not perceive the word wine as something you can drink but a symbol of it.

There is no food in the menu card on the table, but there are symbols of it – and so the card is pointing towards food in the same way, as my non teachings are pointing towards life. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

There is no food in the menu card on the table. Yet there are symbols of it – and so the card is pointing towards food in the same way, as Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are pointing towards life – or rather that there is no life in a world where there seems to be more than one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You cannot drink the word wine, but the four letters, added together in this way, may remind you of the taste of wine, even though there is no wine in the letters. The word wine of course only triggers an actual memory of wine, if you have ever had what it symbolises – otherwise it will just trigger speculations. Likewise, if you know the formlessness of life, every form in the world, even though there is no life in them, symbolises it. But if you do not know life, every form in the world will trigger speculations.

The word wine is a construction of letters made to symbolise the experience of wine. Likewise the world – including astral planes and whatnot – is a construction of thoughts, that symbolises life. It is not in the symbols and that is why you cannot drink life in the world. Neither can you see, hear or feel it, but if life is what you want you will perceive everything in the world as symbols of it.

The experience of something tangible is an imagination based on the belief, that if you feel something it is real, but as there is no more than that which is one and it it requires more than one to feel something, what you appear to feel is an illusion. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Someone who is to be compared to  the enlightenment of that which is one has vague memories of the oneness of life and due to those the apparent differences in the world does not make a difference, which means a world of separation becomes a symbol of that which cannot be separated, namely the oneness of life. But without the enlightenment of that which is one, you cannot practically know, there is no more than that which is one, so that is a matter of belief.

It is, however, also a matter of belief, that a world where there seems to be more than one is real. According to scientists it is nothing but empty space, so to experience something tangible there is make-believe.

You can only know the formlessness of life, when not believing to someone definitive – and not being someone there is nobody to know it. No worries. Life is the formlessness of that which is one, and as formlessness is endless it is everything. Hence there is nothing to know because that requires more than one.

But while you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you can know that such a world is not life but symbols of it, and when the world becomes symbolic, it does not seem to be opaque and so there is nothing that appears to hide that which is life.

Even though these two cats appear to be very different, this is only possible to observe due to life, so if you do not look for appearance but content, their difference makes no difference, because they and everything in the image symbolises the same, namely the life that makes it possible to experience it.

If the world experienced on the screen of a smart media is out of focus, you may suddenly be more aware of the smart media itself. Without it, you cannot participate in the world that appears to be its screen. Though it is not in that world you could say, that everything in it is symbols of that which makes it possible to appear, namely the smart media.

The world you experience lives through you, so when you die, it dies as well. No worries. If you want, you can bring it all with you – not as the world was experienced though, but as the spark of life, that was used to illuminate your experience of it. In other words, if you bring your perception of the world with you, it will not remain like that, but as that which made it possible to have this perception, namely that which is life.

When you do not want anything, fear is gone. Fear is related to wanting and hoping. Being afraid of not getting what you want and being afraid of losing it, if you get it. So if you do not want anything, you are free. This does not mean, that you should avoid wanting to see your children for example, but it means, you are not attached to any specific outcome of wanting or hoping for something, because whatever the outcome is, it is a symbol of that which is life. If you out of old habits still are attached to the outcome, it is not a problem, because attachment is also a symbol of that which is life.

Whatever you think, feel or do or not think, feel or do, are a nothing but a symbol of that which is life.

In dreams, persons and events are normally experienced to be very real, though everything there is an illusion, and you are not in the world of it but in your bed.

Every appearance in a dream seems to have a personality, but that is all they have. There is nothing inside. No self or soul, and no god or anything else to guide them. Nothing can be learned in a dream since it is an illusion. For the same reason, there is nothing to learn or transform. What seems to be ´there´ is all gone, when a dream is over.

Likewise, the formlessness of that which is you is not in a world defined by time and space, though you appear to be someone definitive there.

That which is real is the reason, that what is not real can be perceived as if it is.

Since you experience to be reading this you believe to be someone in the dream called The World,  Even though the dream is lifeless, you can only experience to be ´there´ because of life, so all you can realise is that you are nothing and that which is making the dream possible is everything.

So where is life? Nowhere, because it requires more than one to be somewhere, and life is the formlessness of that which is one. Fortunately, there is no difference between that which is you and that which is life.

There is no awakening from the dream called The World because that which is you is not there.

But while you appear to be in a world without life, you can perceive all the appearances there as symbols of that which makes it possible to experience them, namely that which is life, and so the apparent differences of the appearances do not make a difference, which means your appearance fades out – and without it there is nothing to hide there is no difference between that which is you and the oneness of life.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It makes no sense chasing appearances, when what you want you get from life and life only.

It makes no sense chasing appearances when what you want is the connectedness with life and life only. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you see life as the source of all experiences, they basically become the same, so it makes no difference whether you experience to be alone or not. Actually, the need to meet with other others is replaced with the need to have a connection with life. This replacement is deeply relaxing but also filled with the sorrow of losing the excitement of chasing selected appearances.

Fortunately, life is also the source of feeling loss, so accepting this feeling and life as the source of being able to experience it, you know appearances leads nowhere, and the source of them – that which is life – leads everywhere.

Everywhere cannot be defined, and so following life, you cannot be defined. Consequently, you are not a person to be defined by time and space. What you appear to be you do not know, neither do you care, because you know it makes no sense chasing appearances.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you acknowledge the oneness of life as the sole cause of all experiences, they are all a symbol of the same life, so no matter the experience – so-called positive or negative – the apparent difference does not make a difference. The past, now and tomorrow is the same, when experienced as symbols of the oneness of life.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In that which is life, there is nothing to wait for, because whatever seems to appear is that which is life.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is no life in the world, yet it is nothing but symbols of it.

The sun can only make the skin brown to the extent it is pigmented for it. In other words, what the sun gives you or shares with you, you already have. If not, the sun cannot share it with you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you think, that you are sending love to someone, what you are sending is rather the message, that you have something, the other does not have. This is not to unite but to differentiate. Your apparently good intention of sharing therefore just disguises, that you are enhancing the belief in separation in order to appear better than the other one.

It is not the union of love but the hatred of separation that is shared, when one believes to give more love than the other.

You can only share with others, what they already have. Like the sun can only share its ability to make your skin brown to the extent, that your body is pigmented in regards to receiving the sun.

What is to be defined by time and space is lifeless, because that which is life is formless. Consequently, there is no life in the world defined by time and space. Such a world is rather to be compared to a dream. Nothing in a dream, however, is possible to experience without the dreamer, so although the dreamer is not there and nothing is real, everything is a symbol of that which is, namely the dreamer. Likewise, everything in a world defined by time and space is a symbol of what makes it possible to experience such a world, namely the oneness of life.

In other words, everything in a world defined by time and space are symbols of the oneness of life, so if that is how you perceive the appearance of yourself and everything else experience to be there, you can share everything with everything, as when everything is perceived as symbols of the oneness of life their apparent difference does not make a difference.

There is nothing wrong

That which is you never gets old, because it is the formlessness of that which is one and therefore without time and space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If you feel wrong, it does not help to correct the problem in the person, you appear to be in the world, because you are not ´there´. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Love makes no difference at all

_IGP3854_5_6_7_8-Edit2

To love or hate makes no difference. It is just two sides of the same coin, and which side of it you pretend to be, does not matter. None of the sides is that which is life, as it is no different from that which is one, which is what makes it possible pretending to be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The oneness of life is never-ending
When the life of a computer is over, the energy, that the computer received so it could simulate a world on the screen, is still there, namely electricity. The same thing when the life of the body is over, that which made it possible for the body to appear as if it was a living thing in a world where there seems to be more than one, is still there. In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings it has several names, for example non-duality, the oneness of life, the formlessness of oneness, one perpetual present or that which is life / one / spirit.

If you do not believe to be someone definitive you are nobody, what you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is someone you pretend to be. That which is you is not there and so nobody is dying, when the body stops to function. The formlessness of that which is you is still there – just like when an actor is still there when he stops playing a part in a movie.

Love and hate are equally interesting expressions of passion
If you hate or love, while pretending to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, makes no difference to the oneness of life. Those feelings are just two sides of the same coin. Being identified with one of those sides though, there seems to be a big difference between them.

But that is only because the passion of love is socially accepted as good, while the passion of hate is considered as something evil, that should be controlled and kept in the dark. Yet the nervous circuits in the brain, that are responsible for the experience of hate are the same used during the experience of love.

Hate is an equally interesting passion as love. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Hate is an equally interesting passion as love. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In other words: The brain consider the passion of hate just as interesting as the passion of love. The same applies to any other contrast. It is equally exciting to explore good as bad, right as wrong, black as white and so on.

The apparent difference between the endless appearances of a world where there seems to be more than one does not make a difference, when perceived as symbols of that which makes them possible to appear.

You may, of course, choose to explore just love, but honestly where is the fun in that. Who but the unfulfilled think they need only love? And who but the beast is looking for beauty?

Love is not the answer. The world is not just beautiful. It is also ugly. If you see everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of the oneness of life, there is no reason to limit yourself to explore just one aspect of it. Think about a child who does the most unexpected things. It is amusing. And so is a world where there seems to be more than one when you see everyone as symbols of the oneness of life!*.

If wishes and desires are fulfilled or not does not matter, when perceived as symbols of the that which is life. Consequently fulfilled or not or feeling fulfilled is just as fulfilling.

That which is life is not exclusive but inclusive.** This does not mean, that you have to love heavy metal music if you hate it. Hate is also a symbol of that which is life, so the apparent difference between feeling hate or love makes no difference.

Do not be what you appear to do, but the one appearing to do it.

You are not what you appear to do, but that which makes it possible appearing to do it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

APPENDIX:
Selflessness is not about doing selfless actions. There is no such thing in a world where there seems to be more than one. In such a world you need to appear as if you are someone definitive separated from the whole. In other words, you must appear to have a self, that individually determines what to do and think.

It is pretending to be a self, that makes you selfless.

This does not mean though, that you have to believe, it is you. Just like you do not have to believe, that you are the fighter in a video game. You only have to pretend it. And it is pretending to be a self, that makes you selfless.

You are not the fighter, you pretend to be in a video game, even though you do everything necessary to be a winner. Likewise, you are not the self you pretend to be in the world, even though you do whatever is necessary to preserve the self in a world where there seems to be more than one.

So selflessness is not about doing selfless actions, but about not being identified with what it seems to think, feel and do when pretending to be that specific self.

Far from Home

This is a pic from the late evening on the island, where I stay nowadays. It would be plain stupid to wear a warm sweater, as I would do in my native country in the evening. Everything differs from the memory of life, that I have from my home.

This is an image from a late evening on the island, where Alexius stays nowadays. Everything there differs from the memory of life, that he has from his native country, where he definitely would have had to wear a warm sweater on an evening this time of the year – but it would be plain stupid to do that where he appears to be now. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The native country of Alexius is Denmark, but nowadays he mostly is an island close to Africa. So if he wants to enjoy the moment, as it appears to be there, he has to forget about the ways of Denmark, which are quite minimalistic, and instead convert to the more maximalistic way of this island. Also, he has to adapt to a new language, change to a new currency and adjust to many other things. Even though he seems to be good at that and having fun doing it, deep inside he is still Danish and feel like he is far away from home.

The premise of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is, that a world defined by time and space is an imagination, but as long as you believe it to be real, you better adjust its reality.

This is not to say, that Denmark is better than his new resort or the other way around. It is a metaphor to illustrate, that if you are reading this, you are not in a spiritual but a physical world. And spirituality cannot be applied to a physical world, where the currency has to be tangible. So even though that which is you actually is formless and non-dual, the reality of duality is very tangible things like food, clothes and friends are needed in order to survive.

You can, of course, choose to leave the world of duality and return to the formlessness of non-duality, but as long as you appear to be someone in a world of duality, by all means, go for the physicality of it. There is nothing to lose. That which is you is still formless and non-dual and will always be, even though it for some time appears to be far from home in a world defined by time and space.

If you long to come back home to that which is one, you believe to have left it. That is not possible, however, since oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one. Hence it is only the belief that you have left it, that needs to be undone.

When the apparent difference between what you like and dislike does not make a difference you are on the way back home to the formlessness of that which is you. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The way home
It is very simple to return home: When you are fed up by pretending to be someone definitive, you look at the appearances, that used to amaze or disgust you, and their apparent differences do not make a difference anymore. Hence there is nothing to confirm the belief in separation and without it the experience of duality is not possible.

It is not replaced by heaven or some kind of astral world, as all contrasts like heaven and hell physical and astral world are part of duality. So it is not replaced by anything, as it takes more than one to be or have something. Yet there is no belief in duality to hide, there is no more than that which is one.

´To return home´ may not be the best way of putting it, because that which is you is not in a world of duality, so nobody is returning to non-duality. As a metaphor, you could say, that from non-duality you are streaming a fictional video with a world of duality, where you choose to identify yourself with a specific appearance, that through artificial sensors called senses feels as if it is real and having exciting experiences.

Bill Murray in Groundhog Day experiencing the same day again and again is thinking, that there is nothing to do about it. Fortunately it is just a role he is playing in a movie, so nothing needs to be done, because it is not real. It may seem so, if you do not play your part fully, so to undo the belief in the movie as real just give it your best shot as an appearance there. The image is grabbed from the web.

Bill Murray, who in the movie ´Groundhog Day´ experience the same day again and again, thinks that he is trapped But by involving himself fully in the character he appear to be, he is set free from the it. Likewise you are set free from the believe in being someone definitive, when you completely are involved in the appearance of you as someone definitive – instead of trying to be detached or in other ways distance yourself from what your appearance in a world of duality. The image is grabbed from the web.

You may have seen Groundhog Day with Bill Murray. He wakes up every morning repeating the same day until it turns out to his satisfaction, whereupon he effortlessly gets the woman of his dreams.

Regarding this article your dreams will not be fulfilled in the end though. On the contrary. All dreams must be called. When you remember to forget them, there is nothing to hide non-duality. But you will not know, that you have had a dream, where you appeared to be in a world of duality, as to know something requires more than one, and non-duality is that which is one. In other words, to not know what and where you are is to welcome non-duality.

When the fictional video is finished, you play it over and over again, until you are satisfied with the way you perceive your appearance. When this is accomplished you forget all about streaming, and that there ever was a video. As a matter of fact, there never was. The video and the universe it seems to reflect is make-believe.

The world of duality is a deception – just like Santa Claus
There is no reason to insist, that some appearances in a world of duality are wrong. Appearances can only be wrong if they exist – and they do not. Hence there is no reason to convince anybody, that the world is an illusion.

The belief in a world of duality is as harmless as the belief in Santa Claus. Sooner or later everybody realises, that it is not possible for an old man to fly in the sky on a sleigh driven by reindeer´s and that he is also too fat to crawl down the chimney with lots of presents. Just like it is not possible to appear as someone definitive in a world of duality.

_IGP7967-Edit-Edit

When playing a game you are free to act in any way you feel like. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The only thing to learn from believing in the illusion of Santa Claus is, that he is not real. There is no reason, however, not to enjoy the excitement of the belief, while it lasts. Likewise, there is no reason not to enjoy the fantasy of duality, even though it is a deception as non-duality is the formlessness of that which is one, and formlessness is endless, so there is nothing else than non-duality.

To undo the belief in a world of duality
If you think there is something in a world of duality that can hurt you, you are making it real. But when you know such a the world is a deception, you smile at the silly idea, that something can upset you, and so you are free to act upon it in any way you fancy.

Just like in a video game you are free to act and kill all your enemies if that is your part to play. It can be quite fun indeed when know it is not real. This is, however, not a recommendation to kill anybody in physical life. But to allow yourself having fun to imagine it.

There are of course lots of other parts, you can play. You can, for example, respond with love and compassion, cry in desperation or whatever do what intuitively pops up in the same way you automatically respond by returning a ball, when somebody throws one towards you.

To conclude: As long as you appear to be someone in a world of duality give it your best shot. Do not leave anything undone. If anything is skipped, chances are you want to keep on playing the game until you get it right. When everything is done, you are undone as someone in a world of duality.

You are using the senses to fool yourself into believing, that you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, so that it appears, as if it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. The image is grabbed from the web.

APPENDIX:
You cannot prove an illusion is real. That is why neither scientist, philosophers or those believing in the idea of an almighty God have not been able to explain the creation of the universe. Neither can you prove the universe is unreal because nothing unreal can be seen from that which is real. Well, nothing at all can be seen, as reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to see something. Whatever you prove is wrong, as it takes more than one to prove anything

+ Pretending to be someone definitive is such a relief

The world becomes very playful when you pretend to be a person. Here I am pretending to be with other persons!

Being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is like playing a game when you do not believe to be there and therefore just that pretend to be there. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is meaningless to search for that which is you because it is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is you.

Thus it is not possible to be something else than that which is you. However, it seems possible to believe that it is. If you want to have this belief undone, so nothing hides there is no more than that which is you, you must know what is not that which is you, so that is what you search for.

You do not like what you appear to be in a world where you believe to be. Something seems off, so you start searching for something to ease the pain of believing to be someone definitive instead of undoing this belief (see hack #3.3 Phasing out the personality by not being exclusive).

When you pretend to be someone definitive, nothing appears to hide that which is you
To search for that which is not you is very simple: Just keep on doing, what you are doing. What you appear to do, think and feel is what you are this very moment in the world where you believe to be.

Do not try to change or transform ´yourself´ or the world, but include the moment as it is, whether that seems to involve so-called good or bad thoughts and feelings regarding the past or the future (see hack #3.6 Inclusiveness is pure bliss).

When pretending to be someone, you do not care what you appear to be. Not in the sense, that you are destructive but that you are indifferent. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If it seems as something is missing in the moment, you have gotten it right, because the world where you believe to be, builds on the idea that something is missing. Not suppressing this by blaming something or somebody for being wrong, you know what you have made yourself into, namely someone who feels wrong. Yet, that cannot be that which is you, because it is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to feel wrong.

Even though you did not pretend to be someone definitive in the memories suffering being inflicted upon you, it is never too late to correct these memories, so the person who suffered was someone you pretended to be. Hence the suffering was not real and so it is not burden you anymore.

Knowing what you appear to be is not that which is you, you start pretending to be someone definitive instead of believing to be so. Thus nothing needs to be changed – just like nothing needs to be changed in a game like Monopoly. Actually, you enjoy pretending to be a car in a fake world, so there is no suffering unless you forget, that it is something you pretend.

Pretending to be someone definitive is so energetic
The way you used to think, feel and act is the same when you pretend to be someone definitive. But you do not identify with it anymore. It is the person, you pretend to be, that appears to think, feel and act. Everything, therefore, seems less serious and you airier, as though you appear to be in the world you are not of it. Nothing can happen to that which is you. Only the pretended person can die. And then again it cannot because it is not real.

The more you pretend to be someone definitive, the less you believe to be that. Hence you do not perceive it to make a difference whether you appear to be good or bad. Neither is death, when it knocks on your door, perceived to be different from life.

What you pretend to be you are not
The more you pretend to be someone definitive, the less real the world appears to be, and when death comes, it is as if you are nothing leaving a world of nothing. You cannot pretend to be someone anymore, because there is no experience of a world outside of you, neither is there anybody with a need to experience this, nor a memory of ever having experienced this, because what you pretend to be you are not.

No god is there to judge you. Nothing is waiting for you, because there is no more than that which is one. In other words, you are not returning to the formlessness of oneness, because you never left it.

In a world where there seems to be more than one you cannot have life without death, as death is what defines life in such a world. In other words, there is no life in a world where there seems to be more than one, because life never ends.

For the same reason, it is not the formlessness of oneness that is the afterlife, but a world where there seems to be more than one, since every bit of it is as lifeless or as virtual as what seems to be on the screen, that you are watching this moment. It is all make-believe and knowing that it is just as fun to pretend being a person in a fantasy world as to leave it.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

You like problems, because they make you feel alive

Pretending is the hour of deliverance.

There are no layers of the personality to peel off in regards to stop feeling miserable, as that comes from the belief in being someone definitive, and peeling off layers enhance the belief, that this is what you are. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Those convinced there are layers of the personality hiding the real identity that is inside of them, spent much time in speculating about how to peel them. Yet the assumption, that layers or anything else than the belief in being someone hides what is real, is nothing but a way to postpone the undoing of that belief.

Just like most alcoholics want to get rid of their hangovers but not what is causing them, namely alcohol, most so-called spiritual persons want to get rid of suffering but not the belief in being someone definitive, which is the cause of it. So they read books and follow gurus, that can supply them with peak experiences of happiness, that seem to ease the suffering for a while delay.

Often those into peeling layers off the personality one day try to convince others, that this is the solution to all problems. The next day, however, they may claim there are no problems at all and everything is fine. This seems to be a contradiction but not to them, because the purpose of the two approaches is the same, namely to shield off the unpleasant experience of believing to be someone definitive.

But as the belief in being someone definitive is the real problem, the solution, of course, is to have it undone. How is not important, but motivation is.

It is not a problem to stop drinking, when you know that doing so, is what causes you suffering. That is of course, if you do not want to suffer.

It is not a problem to stop drinking when you know it will stop hangovers. That is of course if you do not want to suffer. In other words, if you continue to drink it is because you want to suffer, so that you can justify drinking. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you are really motivated, you just have to go to one AA meeting to understand that what you need to get rid of hangovers is to stop drinking alcohol. Likewise, if you are really motivated for having the belief in being someone definitive undone, reading that this belief is the cause of all problems is enough to start the process of undoing it.

Most so-called spiritual ideas have the exact same purpose as the mundane ones, namely to confirm that you are someone definitive, and that has nothing to do with spirituality, as that is formless.

But you are not motivated for having this belief undone. You like to find problems, because by always finding something, that is not good enough in yourself or the world and working on the correction of it, it seems to confirm that you are some definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, although there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.


NOTE: This is part of hack #1.2: You cannot change the world, but you can change your perception of it.

The YOU finger and the three ME fingers

When you use the YOU finger to point somebody out as bad, the three ME fingers points to back to yourself. The animation is grabbed from the web.

When you use the YOU finger to point out somebody as bad, the three ME fingers point back to yourself. It may not be to tell you, that you are bad, but to look at what it does to you when you perceive somebody to be bad. It could also be that, even though you have never done bad things, you have had the urge to do so, and instead of accepting this you condemn somebody else. The animation is grabbed from the web.

If you want to see, what is keeping you from enjoying the moment as it is, just keep on blaming somebody else for your present state of your mind.

When you point the YOU finger towards somebody, three ME fingers point towards yourself to reveal, that what you blame others for is your own shit. In other words, what you do not want to acknowledge as yours, you exclude by projecting it onto somebody considered to be outside of you.

Let us say, that you point the YOU finger at someone and either silently or loud say, that this person is a dictator. The three ME fingers point back to you, so you are reminded of the feeling an authority figure triggers in you. Maybe you feel small and worthless in comparison with someone you perceive to be in charge. And to separate yourself from this feeling you blame the perceived authority for feeling inferior by accusing him/she of being a ruthless dictator, who takes away your free will.

If you always control yourself in order to do the right thing, you will more and more sense what others seem to want and less and less what you want. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This feeling of inferiority may have started in your childhood, where you never were allowed to follow your own wishes but had to do what your parents claimed was the right thing. The memories of being overpowered and feeling inferior are blocked out by always controlling yourself in order to do the ´right´ thing instead of going with the flow of the moment.

The pressure of this self-made imprisonment is temporarily relieved every time, you see somebody, that you can point the YOU finger at and blame for pulling your strings while avoiding to follow the three ME fingers, and see the problem is that you are ashamed of going with the flow as it is. But you probably do not know this, as you are so used to do what you think others expect of you in order to get their acceptance.

To be what you excluded is to include it
The above is not to say, that you must visit unresolved issues from the past to free yourself from them. Not at all – no need to deal with the past especially. Whatever pattern you have started – regardless when and for what reason – you will repeat it in the present. Yet it is neither necessary to process it in the present – or embrace the feelings you suppress when you blame others.

To process or embrace something requires you to observe it, which preserves the distance to it. Instead, be what you have distanced yourself from by not thinking about what those you blame for pulling your strings are doing wrong, but completely unedited include whatever you feel when they appear to take your space.

When what used to be excluded is included, it feels like a burden is gone. Not because something has been transcended or transformed, but because inclusion erases the memory of the excluded.

You are free to go with the your flow, when you are not stuck in a pattern of constantly excluding the parts, you do not like of the person you appear to be in the world. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You are free to go with the flow when you are not stuck in a pattern of constantly excluding the parts of your personality, that you do not want others to see as yours. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Bringing it all back home you are free to go with the flow
The easiest way not to compulsively keep on excluding your past feelings by projecting them onto others but instead include them as they are experienced in the present is not to look inside yourself but outside by simply pointing the YOU finger at somebody else and blame them for what you feel. It may take a lifetime of meditation to see in yourself, what it takes a minute to see mirrored in others, and probably no more than another minute more to follow the three ME fingers, so the feelings can be included in the one actually having them.

By pointing the YOU finger at somebody, and follow the three ME fingers you include what you have excluded from yourself.

Inclusion is like an eraser because what is included is not stored in the memory as something specific so you will not know, what you have just included. You may notice though, that you are not so tense, and that next time you encounter a scenario, that used to upset you, you may laugh and wonder, how come you ever insisted in this being wrong. And so you are not stuck in your old pattern anymore and therefore free to go with the flow of the moment.

In the above, the point of reference is to feel upset. But everything said in this regard also applies to point the YOU finger at a person saying: »You make me happy«. That person triggers happiness, you have forgotten you already have, so if you not only follow the YOU finger but also the three ME fingers, you can include happiness instead of excluding it. Consequently, you are free to share happiness with whoever appreciates it, as it is.

Please judge me. Point your finger at me, so you can forgive yourself for what you have judged yourself to be by following your three fingers back to yourself.

Point your judging finger at me and follow the three fingers pointing back to yourself to feel what your accusations do to you so that this feeling can be included instead of excluded. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

INTERLUDE:
If you found typos or anything else in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings that upset you, please judge me as hard as you can, because by pointing a finger at me, the judgements you have made upon yourself are mirrored right in front of you.

This does not necessarily mean that you make typos yourself, but that you see what it does to you when you consider somebody or something to be wrong. Maybe you get furious because you have perfected an image of yourself as someone who always does the right thing. Nevertheless, you are secretly dreaming about not giving a shit, so by judging me to be wrong this part of your personality seems to not be in you but me.

In order to be someone specific you must exclude everything, that does not fit into the specific image, you have decided to show off. What you have excluded, however, will continue to upset you, so you must exclude it again and again in order to uphold your specific image. In other words, what is excluded is still needed if you want to be confirmed as someone specific. If not, you can just include it.

This exclusion of part of your personality seems at first to relieve the inner pressure, but not for long, so again you must point the YOU finger at somebody else and blame them for what you feel, until you follow the three ME fingers back to where the problem is, and see that you judge others to be wrong because you perceive something to be wrong in yourself.

This is just an example. Maybe it is something else that is going on in you, and perhaps you do not know what it is. Yet you do not need to know it to include it, which contrary to exclusion it is not about making something definable.

It is a lot easier to see in others, what you have excluded from yourself. It may take years of psychologically treatment or meditation to see what you can see in less than a minute by pointing your judging finger at somebody else in this moment.

The more you include, the less specific you appear to be – and the less specific you appear to be, the more there is nobody to be bothered by somebody.

To accept yourself is to not accept being someone definitive

Sometimes a beach bum is what I appear to be in the game of pretending to be a person in a world encapsulated by time and space.

Accepting that I am not someone definitive, there is nobody appearing to be a beach bum, a businessman or whatnot. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Somebody once told me, that when the psychiatrist Ronald D. Laing in the late 60s returned from a trip to India, he had discovered, all that is needed to feel fulfilled is having a wholly breath, which may be the same as Christianity calls Holy Breath, as holy basically means wholly.

But what about me? I have chronic inflammation in the lungs, so there is no way, I can do, what is considered to be a wholly breath. No exercises will make my breath whole. So am I lost?

This question – just like ´who am I?´ – cannot be answered, because it is based on the idea, that I am someone definitive, which is not possible, as what you believe to be is nothing but empty space. And even within the context of this belief, it is not possible for anybody to do a wholly breath, because breathing is not volitional. It is an involuntary process, that is messed it up by interfering with it. This includes trying to take a deep breath and whatnot.

Also, there is no such thing as a wholly breath objectively speaking. What appears to be whole for one person may appear incomplete to another. Yet relatively speaking everybody can have a wholly breath within the framework of the specific body they seem to occupy.

When something feels unpleasant we try to get rid of the feeling by holding back the breath and imagine that the good things are inside and the bad ones outside. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When something feels unpleasant, we try to get rid of the feeling by holding back the breath – imagining this will stop the uncomfortable feeling or keep it outside of us. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

How to not mess up the wholly breath
When there is something, that frightens or disgust us, we often hold back the breath so we can fence off the feeling that upsets us. And it is not before much later, when parts of the body start to hurt, we may realise that the unpleasant feelings have been stored in the body. This unfortunate habit of suppressing unpleasant feelings by hiding them in the body often started in our childhood.

In order to face suppressed feelings from the past, you do not need to go back in the past to analyse them, so you understand the pattern set in motion. On the contrary. That is a mental process, which will further fence off feeling what frightens you.

You do not need to understand the pattern behind your repeating behavior. On the contrary. As such an understanding is mental, it will further fence off the feeling(s) that originally started the pattern. Neither do you need to go back to the past event that started the pattern, because the content of it will present itself again and again in the present, where it is much easier to face it than in the past. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

No need to understand the pattern behind your repeating behaviour. On the contrary. As such an understanding is mental, it will further fence off the feeling(s) that initially started the pattern. Neither do you need to go back to the past event that started the pattern, because the content of it will present itself again and again in the present, where it is much easier to face it than in the past. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Every time a present event on an unconscious level triggers these unpleasant feelings from the past, the brain replays the old drama as if it is a present event, so there is no reason to analyse the past and try to understand the pattern behind the fear, as it is much easier faced in the present.

To face something is to feel it as it is – and to feel it is to be it, which is to include whatever you feel in this very moment completely unedited. When feelings are included instead of excluded, the fear of them disappears, and so there is nothing to hold back a wholly breath.

The problem in the present though is probably not the suppressed feelings themselves but the fear of facing them, so by facing that fear, you see there is nothing to be afraid of and therefore no reason to hold back a wholly breath.

A wholly breath does not make you more spiritual – instead it undoes your belief in what is not spiritual.

But do not expect the wholly breath to change, transform or transcend anything in a world where there seems to be more than one, as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. Yet it makes you indifferent to the apparent differences of such a world. In other words, it undoes the belief in being someone definitive.

There is no spirituality in a world where there seems to be more than one, although it is spirituality that makes it possible to imagine such a world – just like electricity is not in the dark room illuminated by it.

The player of a game appears to be in its world, but as it is a virtual world, the player is not really there. It is all make-believe. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

How to make room for the wholly breath
That which is you is spirit, which is formless and not something definitive like a person, who seems to have specific thoughts, that result in specific actions within a confined space called the world. In other words, you are not a person in a world defined by time and space. It is something you pretend to be – just like within the context of the world you, for example, pretend to be a car in the game called Monopoly. Doing that, it seems the car has a will of its own and is able to move somewhere specific. Yet it is not thinking or doing anything of its own.

That being said: Even though the game of being someone definitive is just make-believe, it is in our own best interest to fully pretend to be someone. Because by giving yourself wholly to the game of the world, you feel fulfilled, which is precisely the space needed for the wholly breath to fill you with its indifference, so that going forward is as good as going backwards.

Hence there is no experience of separation to support the belief, that you are someone living in a capsule of time and space. In other words, the player is in the game but not of it. From that perspective, there is no limitation in regards to having fun playing the game.

How to finish the game
That which is you cannot be realised by someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, because the belief in such a world hides, that there is no more than that which is one. Neither can it be realised, when this belief is undone, as it takes more than one to realise something, and there is no more than that which is one.

The enlightenment of that which is one can be bid welcome, whether you are fulfilled or not. You may bid it welcome, when you are so unfulfilled and full of despair, that you do not care about anything – including to survive as someone definitive.

Although electricity is extremely powerful, it does not have the power to choose, how a room, that is illuminated due to its power, is perceived. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Although electricity is extremely powerful, it does not have the power to choose, how something illuminated by its power is perceived. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The fastest way to undo this belief is to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, as it is formless, so there is no room for someone definitive.

Just like electricity has no power to change, what a bulb illuminates or how the illuminated is perceived, the enlightenment of that which is one does not change anything in a world where there seems to be more than one. One thing though is different after the enlightenment of that which is one: You know, that you are not a bulb. It is not possible, because you are nothing but electricity. Yet it is possible to pretend to be a bulb.

You do not have to be enlightened to not believe, that you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Pretending to be there will do the trick because what you pretend to be, you are not. And seeing what you are not, the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one vanishes.

To conclude: If you want to end the game of appearing to be someone living in a world where there seems to be more than one, you do not need to feel fulfilled or anything else in particular. But as this occurs in a world of linear time and therefore appears to take time being fulfilled may seem to shorten finishing the game.

What about the person you appear to be
The appearance of you as a person in a world where there seems to be more than one is a construction of thoughts, which function is to made it appears as if there is somebody outside of it, who causes it to feel happy or sad, as in this way its existence seems to be confirmed by somebody else. In other words, the personality is made real by believing its thoughts and feelings are an effect of somebody else. But if you feel upset and do not look for a cause, the personality does not become an effect, and so there is nobody feeling upset.

To accept is to not exclude but include any experience, that appear to rise from the game, as if it is you!

Let us round-up by taking the above a step further: Even if you consider yourself feeling upset as an effect of somebody outside of you, there is not someone definitive in play, if you accept this as your role in the game of a world where there seems to be more than one.

When everything is included, nothing appears to be outside of you. Consequently, there is nothing to confirm you like someone. In other words, inclusion undoes the belief in separation and therefore in being someone at all.

Kind regards
Alexius


NOTES:

Meditation is a con trick conducted by the rogue consciousness of the self

Whether your eyes are open or not, whatever you experience is a symbol of that which is life. If that is not what you see, meditation will not change that. On the contrary, it will confirm the belief that there are good and bad things to experience.

To experience something, there must be more than one. Consequently, any experience in meditation is a maintenance and not an escape of duality. No worries. You do not need to escape duality. That which is you is not there. It is not possible – just like within the context of duality you are not in the greens of this image, though you may pretend to be ´there´*. But where you pretend to be you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Traditional eastern meditation, as it is carried out all over the world, seems to be all about emptying the mind for thoughts, whereas the western meditation founded on Christianity seems to be about filling it with ideas of god.

Both the experience of emptying or filling the mind is a construction of thoughts.

The mind though is not a fact, but a construction of thoughts, that you have chosen to believe is real. So whether subtracting from this belief or adding to it, the result is just another belief.

To think that you can stop thoughts is an imagination based on the belief, that you are someone definitive – if you did not believe this, there would be no thoughts to stop, as there would be nobody thinking them …

If you do not believe thoughts to be yours, you cannot appear to be someone specific in a world of duality, so without them, you could not meditate. In other words, meditation is a multiplication of thoughts.

Who but the very dirty, needs to meditate every day to purify themselves. I do not even wash my clothes daily. Why should I clean them, when they are not dirty?

There´s nothing to purify.

Just like the world is a simulated reality, so is this image – and no meditation or anything else is gonna make it real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is a con trick conducted by the rogue consciousness of the self (read more about the rogue consciousness of the self here), that meditation will purify, change or transform you. In the disguise of a do-gooder – sometimes called a guru – it promises you, that thoughts will disappear when you meditate so that there is nothing to disturb you from being at peace. Still, most have the opposite experience, namely that there appear to be more thoughts when they start meditating (read more about that here). If they dare to complain about it, they are in a patronising way told that this is part of the healing process.

Anything that involves more than one is an illusion, so the same applies to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. In other words, they are not different from anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, except if they are useful for you in regards to exposing the illusion of such a world.

There is, however, nothing to heal but the sick belief that it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of that which is one.

You have all what it takes. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You have all what it takes. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Meditation does not give you lasting peace or transform you into a higher state of being, and the teacher of meditation has not something, that you do not have yourself. You need no help, because all what is needed is that which makes it possible to experience a the world where there seems to be more than one, namely that which is one, and everybody has that.

What to conclude? Not much really, maybe to say that thoughts have no power unless you use them to prove you are someone specific because doing so you become a victim of them. Meditation, however, will not change that. On the contrary, mediation will enhance the belief, that you are someone specific because the reason you meditate is to fix the problems resulting from believing to be someone definitive.

There is no problem, but the belief in being someone specific.

So if anything should be stopped, it is the belief, that thoughts are yours. They only seem so, because you are holding onto them as if they are in you and therefore are you, and consequently appear to prove your existence as someone in the world. The same purpose is also the behind the idea of stopping them, except that in this case it is not about your existence as someone in the world, but about becoming someone different from it, namely a so-called spiritual person.

That which is you is not someone definitive but the formlessness of that which is one. And as formlessness is endless and therefore everything, so is you. Consequently it is not possible to become centred, higher or anything else.

But to make long short, there is nothing to be or become, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

PART 2:
Thoughts are only disturbing when you believe they are yours. And this you only believe, because they apparently can be used to prove, you are someone special and important. But if there is no need to be that, there is nobody to impress and nothing to search for.

Consequently, there is no sense in constructing anything specific out of thoughts, so they are not bid welcome. Hence they do not appear to be disturbing or to cause noise. In other words, thoughts do not need to be stopped or transformed via meditation, chanting and whatnot in order to have peace of mind.

Please do not turn the above into one more thing, that you must try to be. Firstly, not caring about thoughts is not a state of being but rather of not-knowing. Secondly, in a world of duality it is not possible to always go around in such a state, as without knowing the contrasts of duality, there is no world to experience. You cannot experience what is up, for example, if you do not know what is down**. Therefore the state of not-knowing, which is called a perfect moment in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, is on and off.

In other words, as a world of duality is make-believe, you cannot continuously appear to be in such a world without believing in something. Generally, you, therefore, stick to the belief that you are someone definitive. Nevertheless, you can choose to change this belief into another belief, namely that you pretend to be someone definitive. This allows you to believe in something, which is necessary to appear as if you are someone in a make-believe world, while at the same time having this belief undone since what you pretend to be, you are not.*

When the belief in being someone definitive is completely undone, there is nobody to experience a world of duality, so nothing appears to hide there never was and never will be anything else than non-duality since it is formless and therefore endless.

EPILOGUE:
Those into meditation would be better off switching to SSRIs or beta blockers and use the time saved to explore the world where they believe to be because doing that, they honour the choice of believing this. Thus they are able to correct it.

If you meditate to find peace inside yourself, you believe there is a difference between inside and outside. Hence you confirm that which seems to hide peace, namely separation.

The correction does not come from having insights, peace, power, being deeper or any other bullshit, that enhances the belief in being someone definitive, but from having nothing. That is the correction.

This does not mean you cannot have a house, for example, while you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, but that it is not perceived to be yours since you do not believe that you are there. It is just something you pretend to be.*


Though the difference between for example up and down is sensed in a perfect moment, it is not perceived to make a difference. This applies to any other contrast sensed. As nothing lasts in a world of duality neither does a perfect moment, so it is on and off moments of not-knowing. That is until you do not care about what and where you appear to be at all because that is an invitation for the enlightenment of that which is one to erase all experiences of duality.

**) As duality is a construction of contrasts everything comes in pairs, for example up and down, and as you cannot experience one part of a contrast without knowing the other, be aware that as high as you go, the low you must fall. This is also so in a perfect moment. Yet there the apparent difference between up and down is not perceived to make a difference.
