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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

There is no loss in life

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Not knowing what and where you are, there is nothing to define you. Hence there is not someone, who appears to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

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

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. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


NOTES:

Nobody in a game is real – only the player is

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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