Duality is a simulated reality on top of non-duality

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´. In fact 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.

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 an ultimate reality is also an illusion. If only non-duality is real, as stated 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.

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.

In fact, 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 knows 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. In fact, 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 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.

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.

Fear is just a four letter word

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nevertheless, this hack includes forgiveness, which is the favourite hack of A Course in Miracles, and all the duality hacks of Alexius, as they of course also symbolise that which is life. That is except the enlightenment of that which is one (see hack #5-7.2 The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can), as that which is one is life.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is life?

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

Most know, that what you see in this image is not a man and a woman, but symbols of it. Most also know that the colour or the look of the symbols in no way resembles actual men and woman. Unfortunately very few know, that all that they experience in a world where there seems to be more than one is not real, but symbols of that which is, although the symbols in no way resemble that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kind regards
Alexius


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Guinevere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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 in fact all lines are parallel, and it is the blue boxes that are offset.

What if that which is one …

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This article is partly inspired by an article in Wired called Our Forward March Across the Reality-Virtuality Continuum, where you can read more about AR and VR. In the fashion of AR you might say, that this article is build on top of the article from Wired.

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.

Due to the blue circles, it appears as the orange circles are not the same size. But you are wrong. Each orange circle has the same size. You are also wrong if you experience a world of different sized objects. It is an illusion. That which is real is formless. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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 .

The animation is grabbed from the web.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That which is one is one perpetual present

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


NOTES:

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IMG-CAPA-IOT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


NOTES:

Nobody in a game is real – only the player is

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

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

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

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

stereoscopic3d

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PART 1:
As everything in a world defined by time and space has a beginning and an end, one would expect the answer to the question in the headline to have a beginning. But that is not possible, because that which is life has no beginning or end.

There is no answer hidden at the end of the article
Many articles on the internet start with a teaser or question about how to get more energy, avoid heart attacks, or other things that are hard to answer, but that the article promise to do if you read on.

Unfortunately, you often have to read page after page without really getting an answer, or maybe after much reading, you might be told you will get it if you pay for a subscription to the website. It is not like that in this article.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not trying to sell you something, neither to convince you something, as there is nothing real in the world defined by time and space. The purpose of questions is normally only to make it appear as if there is something real to be found in the world.

An answer that answers nothing
Life can only create, that which it is, and as it is without a beginning and an end it cannot create something with a beginning an end. In other words, you and everything else appearing to be in the world defined by time and space are lifeless.

No answers within a dream is able to explain, what and where the dreamer is, because the dreamer is not in the dream.

In the world everything is limited by time and space.

In the world everything is limited by time and space, and as the oneness of life is formless it is without life. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no more than the oneness of life. There is nothing outside of it, because it is formless and therefore endless. As you need more than one to have an opinion about what it is, and where it comes from it is not possible to answer this or any other question except if you imagine a world where there seems more than one.

Yet there is no life in such a world, as there is no more than that which is one, In other words, such a world is an illusion and hence all answers are illusionary as well. Just like any answer in a dream is just as much a part of it as a question it seems to answer.

Life does not know the meaning of it, neither does it know what it is, because that requires more than one and life is that which is one.

All answers in a virtual world are virtual
It is common knowledge, that the world of the internet is virtual, and that you can pretend to be there as any personality, that you are able to make the other virtual personalities accept as part of the world. Basically, the only thing needed for this to work is electricity to power up your choice of media for connecting with the internet.

You can, therefore, say it is due to the power of electricity, you are able to have fun in cyberspace. Yet you cannot see or feel the electricity there. It is not in the virtual world, that you experience due to it.

Feelings are thoughts made tangible, which can be compared to flavour enhanced food, that even though it tastes of more, leaves you with a desire for more.

You project thoughts out in cyberspace, which seems to respond to you. But it is just your own response to the thoughts you projected out, that you seem to receive. Those reactions of thoughts you make tangible by converting them into feelings, so it appears, as you are touched by what you touch although it is nothing but illusions appearing due to the power of electricity.

This image is just zeros and ones added together in different combinations. If the combinations seem strange to you, you will most likely try to reorganise them into a well-known image of the world. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Everything that appears in a world simulated by an electronic media has basically been there from the beginning. All appearances are just zeros and ones added together in different combinations. You may think you can change or improve something, but no matter what you do, it is still the same zeros and ones added together in different combinations.

There is no difference between this virtual world and the so-called real world. What is called the real world is just as artificial as the virtual one. Whether you seem to be chatting with somebody on the internet or in the so-called real world is all the same. It is all make-believe.

There is no life in the universe – just like there is no electricity in the virtual world of an electronic media.

In the same way as the virtual world of an electronic media is powered by electricity, which cannot be experienced in it – at least not without dying – the whole universe is powered by something you cannot see before you leave it, namely that which is life. And even then it cannot be seen, because life is that which is one and it takes more than one to see something.

A virtual world is nowhere and has no life – yet it is only possible to perceive it due to life
There is a significant difference in the above comparison of a virtual world in an electronic media and the universe. The virtual world of an electronic media is – within the context of the universe – build by zeros and ones, but the universe is not built by anything. It is totally illusionary. There is nothing else than the oneness of that which is life, as it is formless and therefore endless, so whatever appears to be more than one is an illusion.

That is why there is no answer to where the world comes from, or where you as a person comes from. You are not in a world where there seems to be more than one. It is not possible since there is no more than that which is one.

What you think you see and feel in the world is not there, neither the person you appear to be. Your appearance as someone definitive is to be compared to a world where there is nothing but one machine, which has been programmed with artificial intelligence in a way so that specific signals are experienced as if it is thinking and others as if it is feeling something specific caused by somebody outside of it. Hence it concludes, that it is someone definitive in a world with like-minded beings.

In other words, you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, that will last as long as you believe the signals the senses seem to pick up.

As a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, there is no answer to who you are in such a world. There is, however, an answer to why you believe to be someone there. You want to be and have more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
You may long for oneness and try to implement it in a world where there seems to be more than one. But such a world is a world of separation – otherwise there would not seems to be more than one – so there is no room for oneness.

The experience of such a world is only possible due to oneness, but as it formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one, so an experience of a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion. And as formlessness has no time and space, it is one perpetual present, hence the experience ends the very same moment it begins. The world that you believe to be real is, therefore, nothing but after images of this fantasy.

Trying to implement oneness in a world of separation, you deny your own choice of experiencing to be someone definitive in such a world.

Yet while believing to be someone in a fantasy world, it is best to give it your best shot within the framework of this world. Because if not you are denouncing that which makes it possible to have this fantasy, namely the formlessness of that which is life.

What seems to be experienced in the world, is an illusion made possible to appear as if it is real due to that which is real.

In other words, forgetting all about the formlessness of oneness and instead imagine to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one confirms the formlessness of oneness, as formlessness is endless so only due to that is it possible to have such a fantasy.

Oneness is the cause of experiencing a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet the apparent effect of it is not real. It is make-believe.

Whether what is happening on a computer screen is judged to be good or bad, it is only possible to experience it due to the power of electricity. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Though a world the formlessness of oneness is what empowers the fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one it is not in this world. In other words, it is lifeless, so as long as you believe to be in this fantasy it seems to hide the oneness of life. Grasping this, you know that all your different experiences, although unreal, are symbols of that which is real.

The more everything experienced is perceived as symbols of oneness, the more their apparent differences do not make a difference, so the less there is a basis for your belief in separation. There is, however, one big obstacle for undoing this belief. You consider the oneness to be boring. That is also the main reason, you wanted to escape it and chose to believe in a world where it appears that the excitement of being and having more than one beats the peace of oneness.

That which is one is without time and space, so it lasts no time and take up no space. Yet, as it is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that. It is one perpetual present.

As that which is one is endless, there is no more than that which is one. This is why it is nothing but peace, but also why there is no excitement to find since it takes more than one to find something.

A world where there seems to be more than one, however, is based on the idea, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. And no doubt you will seem to find a lot that excites you. But the price is fear because you will always be afraid of losing what you have since nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one lasts.

Besides, there is no more than that which is one, so no matter how much more you appear to be and have it is not real. Somehow you sense something is wrong, but because you want to hold onto the idea and being and having more is possible you let it slide. Just like within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, children like to believe the exciting story of Santa Claus bringing them presents because they are among the good ones, even though they cannot help doubting the whole story.

"Knowing

Yet knowing that Santa Claus is not real, it is quite fun playing along with this fantasy as if it is real. Just like it is fun playing along with the fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one. There is nothing to risk when you know it is not real, which you know the more all the experiences of lifelessness in a world where there seems to be more than one are perceived to be symbols of that which makes them possible, namely life.

How can you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one?
As there is no more than that which is one, there is no answer to that question, so the next articles about virtual reality (Nobody in a game is real – only the player is) and IoT* (A person is to be compared to a machine following preprogrammed movements) are not literal answers to this question. They are more like fairy tales composed to explain the unexplainable.


*) IoT is an abbreviation of Internet of Things.


NOTES:

Pretending is a way out of duality

By pretending to be a person in a world, that is not there, you know, that the one pretending is not there.

By pretending to be someone definitive in a world of duality, you know, that the one pretending it is not there. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In old religious scripts from India, which in many ways are the basis of the Western New Age philosophies, the world is called Maya, which is a Hindi word for illusion. You could, therefore, say that the basis of both eastern and western alternative thinking is, that the world of duality is an illusion. And as this is also the basis of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, everything you believe to read in them or anywhere else is an illusion.

In other words, there is no truth to find in a world of duality, whether you look high or low, inside or outside, in the past, now, future or whatnot. There is nothing but deceptive experiences in a world of duality, which includes your interpretation of this statement.

Within the context of duality, there is one important difference between Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings and most teachings of so-called spirituality. They have a set of rules for what is right and wrong and the one and the only way to truth, bliss, heaven and whatnot, whereas Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not claim to have the truth or any help to offer.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings simply suggest, that as long as you believe to be someone in a world of duality, this belief can be undone by instead pretending to be there, because what you pretend to be you are not, and so you cannot be labelled as someone definitive. Hence there is not something that appears to hide the formlessness of that which is you.


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

(+) You exist nowhere else but in your own dreamscape

You are a person in a dreamscape.

What you appear to be is not real but like a person in a dreamscape. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The world we see on the screen in a cinema is made from frequencies of light that are projected from somewhere else onto a flat screen. We do not actually see the frequencies, neither do we experience the world on the screen to be flat, because our experience is a fabrication made by the brain based on how it is conditioned to translate the frequencies hitting our eyes.*

Hence the world on the screen, where we experience people to be separated from each other in a world defined by time and space is a deception fabricated by the brain. Frequencies of light are all there is on the screen, so the world we seem to see and feel there is made up in ourselves. And so is what we believe to be ourselves.

The brain uses five per cent of its capacity to build a self, that uses a selected part of the info hitting the senses in combinations with singled out memories, feelings and imaginations to create an exciting story about itself as someone special in a world defined by time and space.*

Nowadays, as most movies are digitized and often seen on a computer, it may be more correct to say, that the world we seem to see on the screen is fabricated from the digital info reaching your eyes. As this consists of nothing but zeros and ones in different combinations, this info makes no sense to us before the brain has translated it in accordance with its conditioning.

The brain functions like an app creating and rendering a realistic looking world in 3D based on your belief in being someone definitive there.

Though the conditioning of the brain may seem to differ from person to person, they have all agreed to the same basis conditioning, namely that each one of them is someone special separated from what appears to be outside of them in a world defined by time and space.*

Even though this rendering of a sunset does not look like a ´real´ sunset, memories of a sunset, that you have conditioned yourself to interpret as real, will probably pop up and take over, so the translation of the frequencies hitting your eyes are adjusted to what you believe to be real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you experience to see and/or feel the body it is the same story, as when you experience a dimensional world in a movie at a flat screen. Not even is the body not substantial. It is not there at all.

There is nothing but frequencies of light – or pure info if you prefer the digital version in the above explanation – and they are only experienced as something substantial, because the brain has made a translation of them it in accordance with how it has been conditioned to simulate you as someone substantial in a tangible world.*

No matter how realistic the brain renders the sight of a world defined by time and space, there is nothing real in it.

Same story about the self that appears to be ruling the body from inside of it. Whether the self is believed to be mundane or spiritual the existence of it is a story made up in the brain. But as that which is you is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to fabricate something, this self has nothing to do with that which is you.

In a dream everything is make-believe, because it made from nothing, and so is you and the world where you believe to be because oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

In the context of believing to be someone in a world defined by time and space, this can be compared to having a dream. Nothing in the world of the dream is real and even though the dreamer may experience to be there, it is make-believe, because the dreamer is substantial and the dream is insubstantial. Yet the dreamer can pretend to be there.

In other words, that which is you is not in a world defined by time and space but pretending to be someone there.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings functions only within in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, they must be forgotten in order to undo the belief in such a world, so that there does not appear to be something hiding, there never was and never will be more than that which is one.

Ultimately speaking the frequencies, that the brain base its story of a world defined by time and space upon, are also imagined, because nothing definable is real, since reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to define something.

In other words, as it requires more than one to find the basis for a world defined by time and space, it cannot be found. This could be the reason why science concludes, that the experience of world made by elements of matter is an illusion, because it consists of nothing but empty space. Hence any experience and the one believing to experiencing it is make-believe.

As Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are part of the experience created from of empty space, they are of course as illusionary as anything else experienced. So please do not consider them to be definitive manifestation of truth but metaphors exposing the belief in that which is not real, so that it can be undone.

As this article is part of that dreamscape and as you seem to read it – although what you believe to read is a version translated by your brain and therefore by you, since the brain is the total of your memories – you either believe or pretend to be in your personal version of that dreamscape.

No persons though are totally satisfied with the way their personal dreamscape is rendered. Deep down they hate the person, they seem to be in it. But as so-called negative feelings seem to distort the perfection of their rendered personality, they try to fence them off with ideas of a better world, truth, eternity, coming from the heart and whatnot.

Unfortunately, these ideas do not change the fact, that the world just like you as a person is founded on the belief that it is possible to be separated from the formlessness of oneness.

In fact, those promoting such apparently beautiful visions enhance this belief, because to appear as a good person they have separated themselves from they judge to be bad by projecting it on those they claim are in need their help. See also the article Coming from the heart is a denial of that which is one.

Being a person separated from others by time and space though is not a problem if it is something you pretend to be, because what you pretend to be, you are not. In other words, nothing needs to be changed or stopped, when you do not believe to be a person in a world defined by time and space but pretend being there.

Playing a game is more fun when following its rules instead of spending time trying to change them into what you consider to be more fair according to your ideas of a better world.

In a warm climate, you get the most out of it by having fun adjusting to that climate. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Within the context of such a world, you do not spend time trying to make a game like for example Monopoly better or to find out who you really are but simply follow the rules of the game as they are, because that is what makes it fun pretending to be in a world where you are not.

The same applies to pretend to be someone definitive in a dreamscape appearing as a world defined by time and space. Even though it consists of nothing and thus is an illusion, you just have fun by playing the game of being someone definitive there.

To sum it up, the more you are pretending this, the more it is just as fun being a winner as a loser, as pretending to be something undoes the belief that it is possible to be anything at all, since that requires more than one and that which is you is no different from that which is one.

Alexius has fun pretending to salute a friend with a glass of Limoncello. At other times he may have fun pretending to be an asshole bitching about his friends. That he has friends or anything else is of course also something he pretends. Thus nothing separates him from the empty space, where he pretends to be someone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

APPENDIX:
The more the belief in being someone definitive is undone the less there is an ´I´ that seem to receive impulses for doing this and that. There does not appear to be much except for the emptiness the fantasy of being someone definitive is made from.

There are so many personalities you can pretend to be. In the The Enlightened Non-Teacher, Personal Intro you can see some of those Alexius has pretended to be. Nowadays he mostly pretends to be a non-teacher but also a non student. In other words, he has nothing to teach or learn.

If this seems too depressing, you can use the emptiness as a zero fill and imagine someone in it that you pretend to be, which contrary to believing to be someone is so much fun. In other words, besides from having fun from out of nothing, you are also in the most joyful way having the belief that you are someone at all undone, since what and where you pretend to be, you are not.

Except for the enlightenment of that which is one this applies to all the other duality hacks as well. In other words, whenever the emptiness that they expose seems unbearable, you can use the emptiness as a zero fill and imagine someone in it that you pretend to be, so that you have fun from the experience of being someone definitive, while the belief that this is possible slowly but surely are being undone.

You can always use hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive in combination with the other duality hacks to tone down the hopelessness and desperation that may set in when they expose what you appear to be is fictional and not factual.

So momentarily having the slate wiped clean by a glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one*,* for example, you are free to make a new fiction in which you pretend to be whatever is possible within your apparent physical limitations, and as what you pretend to be you are not, the belief that you are someone definitive is being undone, while you are having fun pretending to be that.

Other duality hacks where you have fun in undoing the belief that you are someone definitive
Another duality hack that is perfect in regards to having fun appearing to be someone definitive while having the belief that this is possible undone is to perceive everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one (see hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life).

You could also adjust to the empty breath, as it automatically syncs the world of the inner and outer senses (see hack #4,5, ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone), so that the abstractness of the inner ones becomes the basis for perceiving the world of the outer senses, wherefore the apparent differences of its physical elements does not appear to make a difference and therefore do not enhance the belief in you being someone definitive.

You can see all the duality hacks in the table of contents.

+ That which is real can only pretend to be in a virtual world

The animation is grabbed from the web.

The animation is grabbed from the web.

To say that a world where there seems to be more than one is a dream may be a bit too literal, as it suggests that the appearance of such a world can be explained. But as that which is formless and therefore endless, there is nothing else than that which is one. Thus your experience of being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be explained. If it could, it would be real and it is not.

Appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is therefore not a dream. But it may be compared to it because in a dream nothing is real. Only the dreamer is. Yet the dreamer is not in the dream, although it appears to be in the dreamer until he/she wakes up.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You cannot stop believing to be someone definitive without knowing what it is you believe to be. Hence it is best to give it your best shot being someone definitive and fully act out your desires as such since that exposes what you are not, because it takes more than one to act out something and that which is you is no different from that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The more you see, that a world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe, the more sad you may get until it dawns on you, that you are not there. When nothing matters you are free to pretend being a person and have fun doing that.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To feel compassion you must pretend to be more than that which is one, because it requires more than one to feel something. The animation is grabbed from the web.

In an illusion everything is illusionary – otherwise, it would not be an illusion – so to ´see´ that which is you is not in the illusion, is also an illusion. In other words, there is nothing to know in an illusion except to know that.

Be aware, that to acknowledge this is to undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, and though that may be what you want, it may seem very frustrating and claustrophobic that there is no more than that which is one, so if you are not ready for this, you better pretend to be someone, who is extending itself in a world where there seems to be more than one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You can, for example, pretend, that you are someone who follows god or others, have compassion for the world, love yourself and/or somebody else. But if you actually believe that this is so, you are heading for trouble, because to follow, love and share with others requires more than one, and that which is you is no different from the that which is one, so there is no more than that which is one. See also the article Coming from the heart is a denial of that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you are tired of the pretence and falseness, that appears to be in a world where there seems to be more than one and think you want more authenticity, you are fooling yourself because if that is what you want, you would not experience to be someone in such a world. You would not experience anything at all, because that which is authentic cannot be experienced since it is that which is one and it takes more than one to experience something.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You might think, that if you search long and hard enough, you will find the authentic self, who is behind the experience of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. But the one experiencing to be in such a world is as just as virtual as the world that seems to be experienced. In other words, the experiencer is the experience.

+ Pretending is a way to reality

Pretending to be a special place in the world of music.

Pretending is in many ways considered to be bad – as if not being authentic. But since oneness is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one. Thus nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one world is authentic but just as illusionary as anything else that seems to be separated from that which is one.

It is easy enough to know, there is no more than that which is one, because no matter how hard you have tried, you have never really been together with somebody else, except in your fantasy. In other words, there is nobody but you.

If that which is you is real it is not possible to be in a world that is not real. Yet it seems possible to pretend being ´there´ – just like an actor pretends to be someone he/she is not in a movie, or as you pretend to be someone you are not in a video game. In other words, everything you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is something you pretend to be.

In reality it is not possible to pretend being someone you are not, because reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to pretend anything. In other words, a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy of yours. And then again it is not, because it takes more than one to have a fantasy.

Thus nobody is making a fantasy about a world where there seems to be more than one and nobody believes or pretend to be there – just like within the context of such a world nobody is making the dreams, you seem to be having while at sleep, and nobody including yourself is in those dreams, although they appear to be in you. If you want a further explanation of this see the next article Why you appear to be someone definitive is not explainable, because there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

Being partly aware of this is a way to reality. To be fully aware of it, however, there is no way or awareness anymore and never was, because that which is you is no different from that which is one, and as that is formless it is endless, the existence of you as someone in a world defined by time and space is an illusion – just like within the context of such an existence, the appearance of you in a dream is an illusion.

Examples of unconsciously pretending to be someone definitive
When you look for a new place to live and you see different possibilities, you may imagine what kind of person who used to live there and what kind of person you could be if living there.

What you pretend to be depends on what you imagine to be expected from you and what you believe to be in it for you.

At work you probably pretend to be the kind of person that fits in there socially and/or professionally, but when at work-out you probably pretend to somebody else. And going to the disco you may pretend to be yet another one.

When you make a pass on someone you probably start adjusting your behaviour in accordance to what seems to turn the other on so that you can pretend to be the exact person the other one has been looking for.

Suggesting to pretend being a person is to suggest something that everybody already are doing – so it may be more correct to suggest being aware about it.

So although you may not be aware of it, you are already pretending to be someone definitive. And being aware of it, you know that what you pretend to be, you are not. Hence the door to that which is you has been opened.

You may have a hard time accepting that there is nothing authentic about the person you have believed to be. But for sure you know that the energetic people in an advertisement for Coca-Cola pretend to be something they are not – also the actors in a theatre or a rock star on the stage. And the work associates who always agree with the boss. Plus all the beautiful people on social media. You probably also know, that you assure your kids that everything is fine, you are pretending this.

Maybe only your body is having sex with your partner. And you pretend to be there, while you think of somebody else.

Maybe only your body is having sex with your spouse, and you just pretend to be there, while think of somebody else. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

An example of consciously pretending …
… that you may already know from your way as a person in a world where there seems to be more than one. You are having sex with your spouse but only your body is there. With eyes closed, you imagine it is somebody else you are having sex while pretending to be with your spouse.

Knowing that you pretend to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, no problems are real
Since what you pretend to be is not that which is you, it remains unchanged, whether you pretend to be compassionate or merciless.

To search for truth in a game like Monopoly is meaningless. There is nothing to realise there, because you are not ´there´. Yet that you can realise.

You already know this from playing games, for example Monopoly. You are not ´there´ but pretend that you are. It is all the same if you pretend to be a red or a blue car or how many scratches the car gets. It is not real and does not change that which is.

What you think you realise, only results in you pretending to be a new person. Nothing has really changed, because whatever you pretend, you are not. That is alright – and it is also alright to pretend being someone, who thinks it is alright.

To leave the illusion of the world,you first have to see,that you believe,you are ´there´. Thisyou can see by knowinglypretend to be a person andwhen you´ve had enough ofall the hard work it isto concentrate on pretendingto something you are not,you´re ready not to focus.If you don´t focus theworld will disappear andmake place for something,that cannot be focused at.Namely that what you are: One.This pic is not what you are,but a pic of the worlddisappearing due to lack of focus.What you are cannot be seen.

To leave the illusion of the world, you first have to see, that you believe to be ´there´. This you can see by knowingly pretend to be someone definitive, and when you have had enough of all the hard work it is to concentrate on pretending to be something you are not, you are ready not to focus on being what you are not. And without focus, there is no world to experience. Hence there is no experiencer hiding that which cannot be experienced, namely the formlessness of that which was, is and always will be you. This image though is not the formlessness that which is you, but a simulation of that which is not you, when it is about to fade out due to lack of focus. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That which is one cannot be experienced
You may imagine, while you read this, what kind of person you should pretend to be, if you follow Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, and what kind of person you would pretend to be if we met – or the kind of person you are, who would not follow something like this.

To appear as if you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one demands much focus and control*, so if you are fed up with being someone in such a world, you simply cease to focus and control. This is done by being aware of what you already do, namely pretending to be what you appear to be, since that exposes what you are not, namely someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

There is no more than that which is one, so you are not in a world where there seems to be more than one. Hence the way out of such a world is to not know what and where you are.

It does that so clearly, that without further ado you cease to focus. In reality, this means that the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one is over. But as the experience of such a world seems to happen in linear time, it appears to happen so gradually – probably over several years – that you are not even aware of not experience a world where there seems to be more than one focus – or anything else at all anymore. Because when there is nothing to experience, there is nothing to confirm you as someone definitive.

Thus nobody appears to hide there never was and never will be more than that which that which cannot be experienced, namely that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless.

APPENDIX:
When you do not perceive anything in the empty space**, that seems to be outside of that which is one, there is nothing but the idea of you as someone in charge of its own life. But without the perception of a world where there seems to be more than one to be outside of you, there is nothing to confirm your existence as someone definitive.

Thus this idea about being someone specific disappears in the nothingness of empty space. And as that means nobody is watching it, the apparent existence of something outside of that which is one is over.

Consequently, there is nothing to hide, there has never been anything outside of that which is one, neither inside, since it is formless and therefore without sides as well as beginning and end. Thus a world where there seems to be more than one has neither been created or terminated.

So in case you experience to be in such a world, it is not explainable, because it is not possible – just like within the context of such a world, it is not possible for a physical being to be in the world of a dream since that world is an illusion.

+ 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 #3.1 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment and 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. In fact, 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.

The more you pretend to be something you are not, the less it is hiding that which is you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The more you pretend to be something you are not, the less what you appear to seem to hide that which is you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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.

A joyful life

When you download a song, you get fragments of it from all over the world that must be organised on your computer into one song in order to be able to hear it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you download a pirated song as a torrent file, you get fragments of it from all over the world, that must be compiled on your computer into one song for you to be able to hear it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Let us take a look at pirated music, books and movies – not from a moral point of view though, but to see what is happening behind the scenes when you download pirated files.

What happens when you download pirated music?
The file that is used to download pirated music is called a torrent file, does not contain the actual music. It is just a file that can grab a significant number of small files with each their own fragment of the music you want. There could be a small file containing the beginning of the music, another one containing the end of it, and many small files containing bits and pieces in between.

None of these files that are chaotically collected from different computers all over the world sounds like music before they are combined and translated by an app on your computer into the piece of music you expected to hear when you started downloading them.

What happens when you believe to think?
The above description of what happens behind the scene, when you download pirated music is more or less
also a description of what is going on when you believe to be thinking. Because you do not think but download thoughts.

It is like there are patterns of archetypical thoughts – mother, child, love, food, home, and so on – in the air around the planet, that are picked up on an unconscious level. The psychologist Carl Jung said thoughts ´are archaic patterns and images that derive from the collective unconscious. They are autonomous and hidden forms which are transformed once they enter consciousness and are given particular expression by individuals and their cultures.´

When you, for example, get the urge for ice cream, you are diving down in the collective thought pattern of ice creams and connecting with everybody, who is or have been thinking of ice cream. From this vault bits and pieces of collective thoughts are downloaded to the brain, where they are combined into something, that seems to be your personal thoughts about ice cream.

So just like downloaded pirated music is not your music, thoughts of ice cream, love and whatnot are not your thoughts but ´pirated´ ones pieced together from a significant number of collective thoughts piled up throughout centuries.

To make long short, you do not think, but collect bits and pieces of thoughts from the collective unconscious, and when the brain has added them together into something judged to be meaningful, you assume it is your thoughts about ice cream, love and whatnot. See also the articles Thoughts do not come from you, but The Cloud and A person is to be compared to a machine following preprogrammed movements.

Based on the image of yourself as a person in a world of duality, you may assume, there is a person in this image. And based on your memories of what a person looks like you may even ´see´ the whole body of the person in the image, although it is not there. This is precisely how the world is experienced. Fragmented memories are put together into an imagination of something, that seems to be there, although there is nothing there. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

What happens when you believe to understand?
The process of assuming, concluding or realising something is like the process of thinking. It is based on the collective agreement, that you are someone definitive in a world of duality, and that the thoughts and feelings you seem to have are proof of this.

But just like the pirated music you download is not actually music but meaningless digital info made of zeros and ones, the thoughts you download are not actually thoughts but meaningless frequencies until translated by the brain into something that appears to be thoughts, that you as someone definitive are thinking yourself.

The same applies to this article, which consists of meaningless frequencies hitting your eyes, that he brain translates into you being someone definitive reading it now, although it was read one second ago, as it takes the brain one second to convert the frequencies hitting your eyes into a conscious experience of you being someone reading this. See also Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.

If your native language is not English, your brain or an app – has probably translated the English words into your language. But regardless of your language, the perception of the words is shaped by your present mood and how you have chosen to condition yourself through history and local culture. In other words, it is not an article by Alexius that you read but yours. See also the All thoughts are meaningless, and Eyes do not see, they translate.

What determines the outcome?
When you have chosen what to eat and have swallowed the food, the digestion of it is automatic. It is not a conscious doing of your own. The same applies to thoughts and feelings. When you have chosen, what to be aware of – ice cream, love and whatnot – the process of making it appear to be there happen automatically through you appearing to have thoughts and feelings, that seem to confirm the reality of it.

So what you want is very important. It is your motive or intention that will be the guideline for how bits an pieces of thoughts are processed, and it will also determine how you in retrospect judge the experience of ice cream, love and whatnot.

If I go for a walk in the mountain to be filled up, I will enhance the feeling of loss. But if I go there, because I have everything, I will see everything – and that is joyful.

If Alexius goes for a walk in the mountains to be filled with more experiences, he will enhance the feeling of something is missing, and so something on his walk – either in him or outside – will appear to be wrong. But if he goes there out of a feeling of being filled up, nothing is missing on the walk. One way to always feeling filled up is seeing everything as symbols of that which is one* because then nothing is missing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If your motive for being conscious about love is that you feel incomplete and miss something, love will be judged through this motive and result in the sense of something is missing or is wrong in the object of your love. But if your motivation for being aware of love is joy, meeting your object of love – or anybody else for that matter – will be delightful.

If you do not try to control your thoughts, you will go with the flow – and that is joyful. This does not mean to come from the heart, which is nothing but another concept – a construction of thoughts fabricated by the brain.

If you do not try to control your thoughts, they just like a river hurry back to the source of all experiences – and that is a journey full of joy. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

EPILOGUE:
In the article, 
the conclusion is, that if you feel joy, whatever you choose to think of – for example having an ice cream – will result in a joyful experience. If you wonder, how to know if joy is the starting point of an experience, the answer is straightforward. Do you sparkle with joy when you read this article? If not, your motivation for reading it is not joy – and that is not because somebody has taken it away from you, but because you do not want it, and so you do not have it.

It is never too late to review your memories and recode the intention behind them, so you will look at the world in a more joyful way today.

In other words, it is not somebody else you need to change to feel joy but your own choice. Unfortunately, you cannot choose to feel joy, as it is an automatic outcome of not being in control but going with the flow. Fortunately, you can choose to not go against the flow.

To follow the flow is not similar to be coming from the heart, as to come from somewhere specific requires that someone definitive is in control.

If you, for example, feel for ice cream, do not fight it, but thrust the flow. Doing so may not lead to ice cream but for sure to a joyful day.

  • Popcorn Time is a website where you can listen to music or watch movies in more or less the same way as described above. But in terms of appearance Popcorn Time is much different from most other web pages with pirated material. It is well designed and looks like a regular legal webpage, so most are not aware that they are doing something illegal when they listen to music via Popcorn Time. A world of duality can be compared to Popcorn Time in the sense that it feels so absolute, that most are fooled into believing, it is the real thing.

The world is in the eye of the beholder

The sun can only ´make´ the flowers blossom, because they are built to do so. They have no choice. But you have a choice, and it is in your own best interest to choose, what makes you feel good.

The sun can only ´make´ the flowers blossom because they are built to do so. They have no choice. The same applies to you, except that you have a choice in regards to how you want to perceive the flowers or anything else in the world.

When people talk about psychological problems, they often say things like: »You´re upset because you did not speak your mind when somebody said or did something that offended you«. This or similarly sentences are popular ways of justifying feelings so that they appear to be caused by something outside the sufferer.

If one plus one is not two, then the whole maths system falls apart. In other words: If the foundation is wrong, what is build upon it is also wrong. This is to say, that the above assertion of what is causing psychological problems is totally wrong and therefore also any solutions built upon that assertion.

It is not what others do, but your perception of it that upsets you
You never get upset, because of what somebody else says or do – or not say or do. You get upset because of the way you choose to perceive, what somebody else says or do – or not say or do. But only if you already have the specific feeling you blame somebody else for causing in you because you cannot receive something, that you do not already have. Just like the sun can only colour your skin in proportion to how much the pigments in it allows you to be touched by it.

It is of course to a certain extent your choice, if you want to have the pigments in your skin touched by the sun or not. Yet how to perceive the colour triggered by the sun is solely a choice of yours.

If you love yourself, you will most likely perceive the new skin colour as lovely. But if you feel uncertain about yourself, you may perceive faults and missing parts in it, as if something is wrong and needs to be fixed. This perception, however, reveals nothing about the sun but everything about what you suppress in yourself.

The more for example hate is suppressed in yourself, the more the new skin colour seems to upset you. And the less you want to face it is your own feeling, the more you will blame the sun for it, regardless it already was present – although suppressed –and has nothing to with the sun but your own self-hatred.

If you want another person to respond in the way that you define as lovingly, you reject what that person really is – basically because you have rejected yourself. And so when you do not get the expected respond, your own feeling of rejection is exposed. Yet you blame somebody else for that instead of acknowledging that the world is in the eye of the beholder.

If you do not love yourself, you cannot give love, because what you do not have you cannot give, neither receive. In other words, what you give is what you receive, so if you see unfriendliness, that is what you give, and therefore what you have and are. To use a very common phrase, the world is in the eye of the beholder.

Love and hate are two sides of the same coin
As love cannot be forced, you cannot choose to love what you appear to be. But you can choose to accept, that you hate it and actively have suppressed that. Doing so you will see love is set free because hate and love are two sides of the same coin and that the only reason you have not seen the love you have is that you cannot suppress one without the other.

Therefore, when others seem to upset you, be thankful, they may have helped to expose your hatred, and if accepted as yours, you will see you also have its contrast, namely love. In other words, they love you!

Life is neither a cause or an effect, there is no karma!

If the car in this image makes you feel in a specific way, you are constructing an effect yourself. The image has no power to create any effect at all.

If the car in this image seems to make you feel in a specific way you are constructing this effect yourself. The image has no power to cause you to feel anything at all. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You do not reap as you sow, and you do not get presents from Santa Claus, unless you are superstitious.

Karma promotes the idea, that physical, mental or emotional respond is an effect caused by an action in the past. But when you for example hammer a nail into the wall, you get an immediate physical effect of the nail moving into the wall. And this is not an effect of something you did in the past or in a so-called former life, but of something you do right now, so if you see a connection to the past it is a fabrication of your own.

If you hit your finger while hammering on the nail and remember you once hit somebody else, there is no cause and effect in play except. unless you invent it. Hitting the finger is just an accident. Nothing in your past caused it, norr is there anything set in motion for the future, apart from going to the doctor if the finger was hit very hard.

Karma is a construction of yours
The above conclusion is disappointing if you want causal connections to imply, your appearance as someone specific has a special meaning. However, as that which is you is the formlessness of that which is one, it is completely meaningless to appear as if you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, so such a connection have to be fabricated.

To suffer from bodily pain just because you accidentally hit your finger does not make you appear to be someone interesting, but by making a connection to for example your father, as if the pain relates to the sadness you seemed to cause him in your childhood, you have a basis for a story of cause and effect, where you and your father are part of something greater, so that you appear to be someone special with a higher purpose.

On top of that, such an invention of cause and effect makes it possible to justify any thought, emotion or action as ´caused´ by something greater, so that destiny can be used to justify everything you think, feel and do. In this way, you appear as innocent and something as guilty. Yet it never works as intended, because having excluded something from yourself by projecting it on something that is judged to be outside of you will not feel innocent but guilty.

If you feel upset and you justify it with what you perceive somebody else to have done or not done, you will feel instant guilt and probably also fear, as you will be afraid of the retaliation you expect from those you have judged to cause you feeling upset.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Every time you look for something, that seems to be able to justify your current state, you fabricate cause and effect – also called karma. As it is all an imagination, you feel the effect of it in the very same moment you imagine this connection. There is no other karma than this imagined connection of cause and effect. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Your construction of karma has no effect in the future but now
Every time you look for something that seems to justify your current state, it will appear to be caused by that and therefore to be an effect of it. Hence your state of mind feels real right now. So this fabrication of cause and effect is not something you will feel in the future but in the same moment, you exclude feelings from yourself by justifying them as caused by something judged to be separated from you.

Most want to believe the idea of karma, because if they are caused by something, the conclusion seems to be they exist.

But if you do not construct this connection, there is no cause. And as an effect cannot exist without a cause and vice versa, there is no specific state of mind. In other words, if you do not justify what you seem to think or feel it has no effect and so karma falls apart.

As the oneness of life is formless, it is without beginning and end and therefore everything. Hence nothing else could have caused it, neither can it cause anything else. In other words, whatever appears as if it is ruled by cause and effect is lifeless.

The concept of karma seems to prove, that a world where there seems to be more than one is real. But this proof is just as silly as when a little child believes Santa Claus is the cause of presents and based on this assumption of cause and effect concludes that Santa is real.


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.

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.

*) Check hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation, if you want to have the belief in being someone definitive undone by pretending to be someone definitive in a world 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.
