[+] You feel stressed from perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference (in the process of being updated)

Only in a world where there seems to be more than one can you search for the meaning of life. Yet it is not to be found there or anywhere else, because it takes more than one to find something and life is that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The way that letters are put together in various shapes makes it possible for us to attribute a special meaning to each of them. And when the shapes are organised in rows divided by dots, like in this article, they seem to make up a story written by somebody else and read by us, and thus to confirm we are somebody in a world where there are more than one. But since the story that seems to prove this is pieced together of shapes attributed our own meaning, the story is made by ourselves and does, therefore, not prove there are more than that which is one.

Reality is that which is one, and since it takes more than one to experience something, it cannot be experienced.

But let us imagine, that the letters making up the shapes we believe are confirming us to be somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one are the same letters making up that which is one. Unlike in the world, where we believe to be and where everything is experienced to be separated by time and space, there is no space to keep anything apart in that which is, since that requires more than one.

Although the story of you as someone definitive is made up by yourself, it is not a happy but a sad stor, because you feel sad being separated.

Hence the letters, that oneness consists of cannot be distinguished from each other, and therefore not organised into shapes, that added together in specific ways seem to establish a story of us as somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, oneness is formless.

In non-duality, everything is fused into one perpetual present, that no one can see, as it takes more than one to see something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A world defined by time and space is a slowed down version of the formlessness of oneness
It is not only because there is no space to separate the letters making up that which is one, that they cannot be differentiated from each other, but also because they are not still. They move so fast that time stands still, so it is not possible to organise them in a linear way – or any other way for that matter.

In the context of our story about a world where there seems to be more than one versus that which is one, you could say, that a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy of what oneness looks like when slowed down. The more it is imagined to be slowed down, the more space there seems to be between the otherwise shapeless letters, wherefore they appear to be separated from each other and each has a definitive shape of their own.

Furthermore, there seems to be time to arrange the separated shapes in different combinations attributed with each their own meaning, so not only space but also time establishes separation as real and thus that which is one as unreal.

The slowing down of oneness is, therefore, an attempt to turn its formlessness into a construction of thoughts representing specific shapes that they seem to be something you can manipulate to your liking in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Thus the way back to oneness does not come from slowing down thoughts via meditation or something else that makes you appear to be in control of the thoughts making up your particular shape so you seem to be at  rest and untouched by the speed of the Earth that is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour.

Neither does the way back come from understanding this or anything else, as to understand something enhances the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

No matter if something is experienced to be inside or outside, it is make-believe, because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of oneness and formlessness has no sides.

To undo the belief in duality you must give up attributing meaning to anything, that seems to have a beginning and end so that the apparent differences of duality does not appear to make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A journey without distance takes no time
It is not a fact but make-believe that what and where you appear to be is real. It all falls apart if not attributing meaning to the letters in this article or anything else that seems to be part of your story, because when shapes have no meaning, there is nothing to separate them and therefore no time and space.

Since there is no more than oneness, nobody has ever left it. Thus the way back takes no time.

The fastest way to not attribute meaning to something appearing to be there, is, of course, to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one (see hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one). It promptly and relentlessly erases every definable detail of whatever you remember to have experienced so there are no memories from where an image of you as someone definitive can be recalled and thus nobody to experience a world where there seems to be more than one.

If you, however, want to have your cake and eat it too, you can connect with the empty breath (read more about that here), because it undoes the belief in being someone in a less abrupt way. Thus you are able to enjoy the excitement of it while in the process of having it undone.

The reason for this is that the empty breath does not erase the memories of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet due to its flow of indifference, the apparent difference between what is believed to be you and others is not perceived to make a difference.

Thus a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be confirmed to be real. But it is quite fun to pretend that it is (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive). Just like in the context of the apparent reality of a world where there seems to be more than one, it is fun pretending to be someone in the virtual world of a video game.

The source of life cannot create anything, as it is that which is one and it takes more than one to create something. For the same reason, it cannot be found. Fortunately, that is not necessary, because the oneness of life is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Nothing needs to be done when not perceived as something
The change of size and weight from hefty to almost nothing –for example vinyl to CD to MP3 to streaming and computer to smartphones to wearables – and the speed of info in cyberspace is a reminder, that the reality is sizeless since it is that which is one, and it requires more than one to take up space. As it, therefore, cannot be found in a world defined by time and space, nothing in such a world can bring you back to it, except the undoing of the belief that you are there.

That is the purpose of the empty breath as well as the other duality hacks. It is not achieved, though, by revealing the formlessness of oneness, because it takes more than one to reveal something. Besides, it does not need to be revealed, as it is formless and therefore endless, so there is nothing else.

What needs to be revealed is what appears to hide this. It is your perception of a dream that makes it appear real and likewise it is your perception of what and where you appear to be when you believe to be awake that establishes it as real. If you, for example, perceives a specific noise to be irritating, you will probably start to imagine how to get rid of it and how much better everything will be when the noise is gone. Thus the belief in being someone definitive is enhanced.

This is what the empty breath corrects without you having to change your perception or anything else because the noise, as well as your perception of it, is perceived as nothing by the empty breath and when connected with it this perception rubs off on you. The belief in being someone is, therefore, not enhanced but undone at once. In a world of linear time, this may seem to take a long time before there is nobody to realise this.

No worries. Time is also perceived as nothing by the empty breath, so while nothing happens you can have fun perceiving it to be something. In other words, with the empty breath by your side, you do not need to stop or change anything, nor to force the body into uncomfortable positions, to have the belief in being someone undone and at the same time having fun being in love, irritated or whatnot.

APPENDIX:
Some claim the amount of info coming from digital media is stressing. But that only seems so, because they want to uphold a special image of themselves, and therefore need to sort it in categories of good and bad, so it ends up in a story that points to you and like-minded ones as the good ones and others the bad ones. But as this story is based on countless judgments and speculative concepts regarding right and wrong, thoughts keep flying around, which is what feels stressing and not the amount of info.

This speculative and restless state though is not a problem, that needs to be fixed. In fact, the faster the speed of thoughts and feelings seem to be, the faster the stress disappears. That is if you do not try to slow down the speed but use it to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. Read more about that here.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

There is no loss in life

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All experiences are equally unreal

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The skin has been texture-mapped.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is an image of a dying star grabbed from the web.

This image of one of the many dying stars in the universe is grabbed from the web.

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

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

NOTES:

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