The construction and deconstruction of the personality

You must let appearances pass – including the appearance of time and you as a person – if you want to see that which is real.

The construction of the personality that you experience yourself and others to have can be compared to what happens on Facebook. Based on what you like and indirectly what you do not like the algorithms of Facebook will calculate, what kind of personality you have, so the more you like, the more your personality is established.

In accordance with the personality Facebook has constructed you receive updates and adds, that confirms its definition of your specific personality. In this way, you will be more and more fixated in the points of views you already have of what is right and wrong, so that reality seems to be that you and those you consider to be like-minded are the good ones and others the bad ones. Facebook, however, does the same for those you consider to be wrong, so just like you they think, they are the right ones.

4When you hit ´like´ many times on for example tv shows, Facebook will bring you updates and adds within this category, but most likely it will also bring you adds for loosing weight and exercising, because from its database it knows, that people watching a lot of tv tends to be on the fat side.

As a consequence you will not only feel fat but wrong, as slim is supposed to be right – or if you already felt that, Facebook has confirmed your personality to be wrong. But as nobody wants to be wrong themselves, you blame Facebook or others for being wrong, so that their flaws can defined you as right.

From this follows all personalities are in the same boat sharing the belief, that they are right and others wrong. But as each personality is a fabrication and as that which is real is not fabricated, all personalities must be wrong, even though they consider themselves to be right.

To see that which is real, you must choose to ignore the updates from Facebook, which in this article is a metaphor for the conclusions of the brain. You cannot stop the thoughts, that seem to come from the brain. It is like trying to stop the clouds. Their substance is an illusion. Likewise, thoughts and feelings are just empty space.

When everything is perceived as the symbol of the same, everything becomes equally likeable – and so there is nothing to choose. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In other words, when you choose not to hang onto thoughts but let them pass, they cannot fabricate the substance called the personality, and so that which is you is no longer hidden. Choosing this is not a choice, as that involves a personality. Consequently, choosing this is to not choose.

One way of doing this is to perceive everything that you experience as not that which is you but symbols of it because that makes everything equally likeable, and so you need not choose what to like.

CANCELLEX Pretending is freedom from self-deception

Any interaction will do to make you seem alive as a person in the world – also if you are only looking at others. This relation confirms you to be ´there´.

Any interaction will make you appear as if you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one – also if you just observe others. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
As the experience of something requires more than one and that which is you is no different from that which is one, it is the belief that you are someone definitive experiencing a world defined by time and space, that hides there is no more than that which is one. Hence you have to be totally emptied out in order to not block out that which is you.

Fortunately, this is already so, because what you appear to be is nothing but empty space. In other words, there is nothing about your appearance in a world defined by time and space that needs to be changed or transformed. On the contrary, because any changes enhance the belief that you are someone definitive – and it is this belief that seems to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one.

To be free from what you are not is to not be anything at all, because it takes more than one to be something, and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Thus the undoing of this belief, that nobody has started is what seems to free you from what you have never been – just like within that belief system nobody causes a dream and nobody has ever been in it.

This is not about opening up or surrender to a higher power, because it takes more than one to be a higher power and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. For the same reason neither is there anybody who can open up or surrender – or accept this. So if it seems so, you just pretend to be someone experiencing this, because what you pretend to be, you are not.

PART 3:
A shadow only seems to have a life of its own due to light being blocked by something shaped in a similar way. In other words, the apparent existence of a shadow having a life of its own is an illusion. To see what is not an illusion, you must look for what the shadow reflects.

The same applies to the universe. It is a shadow – a hologram you could say. Regardless of how you experience yourself and the world that appears to be outside of you, it is make-believe.

Grasping this you are free to pretend to be any kind of person. Maybe you like to pretend to be a committed person, and so you do until you like to pretend to be a careless person or a person who loves everybody. Whatever you fancy you can pretend to be.

If you feel bad about something you seem to think, remember that thoughts are like shadows. They are not you.

By pretending to be somebody, you remain that which is you and therefore detached from what you pretend to be. A shadow is of course always attached to whatever is casting it, but that which is casting it is detached from the shadow because it is not in the shadow.

PART 4:
Would you make love to a shadow? Probably not, it is not real and you want the real thing.

What seems to be real in a world of duality does not give you the satisfaction you want – at least only temporarily and after much hard work.

Such a world can be compared to a shadow and a shadow cannot give you anything – not even dissatisfaction, so if that is how you seem to feel, it is an imagination. All that you seem to get from a shadow is imagined, so why not choose to imagine, that you get something satisfactory.

This is possible if your choices are within the limits of the shadow – just like when pretending to be someone in a game like Monopoly you can be happy with what you have within the limits of that game, and should you lose it nothing has really happened to you. So why not give it your best shot within the game of the shadow world? You have nothing to lose. It is not real, and when it is over that which is you is all the same.

In a world of duality you cannot know what is real. But you can know, that what you appear to be is not real – and knowing that, you are free to pretend what to be and enjoy the adventurous thoughts and feelings this person appears to have.

To spell it out, do not try to be spiritual. There is no spirituality in a shadow, only in that which is casting it, namely non-duality, so have fun pretending to be that you are not spiritual while appearing to be in a world of duality and instead taste the sweetness of pretending to be what you are not.

Help, I Need Somebody

What you appear to be is a construction of thoughts, that has to be witnessed by somebody else to make it seem substantial. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you think, you are someone in a world, where there seems to be more than one, you need help because you cannot appear to be someone there without being helped by somebody or offering support to somebody so they can bear witness to you being different from them and thus someone definitive in a world, where there seems to be more than one.

According to an article, published in the journal ´Nature Communications,´ a team split a single photon in half and transmitted them to separated labs.

And so the team discovered, the divided particle did not only exists before it was observed, but that it never showed up in both of the labs at the same time. The particle that was not being witnessed by somebody ceased to exist.

Can I Get A Witness
Quantum Physics says the moon only exists when you look at it. In other words, it needs to be witnessed to appear as if it is there. The whole world is built upon this logic. Nothing in a lawsuit is true before it has been proved to be seen or heard by somebody. If something has not witnessed, it has not happened.

Since the world according to science consist of nothing solid, the perception of it as tangible must constantly be acknowledged for it to be experienced as something instead of nothing.

As one plus one is two, it follows that two plus two is four and so on. But if one plus one is not two, the whole system falls apart. Likewise, if those appearing to witness your existence do not exist except in your fantasy, neither do you.

This is why it is so important to socialize – whether it is in the mind, on social media or in the so-called real world – because in this way you confirm that there are others, whom in return seem to bear witness to you being someone real. This works terrific if you are confirmed by a group – for example a country, a football team or a family – that you imagine being part of and to be better than another group. Your group, therefore, is perceived to be stronger and you to to be more real.

That is is you follow the rules of the group. If not, you are punished by exclusion until you have learned to adjust. In a courtroom, this is called justice.

Wasn´t Born To Follow
Jesus denied following the demand of the group, that urged him to withdraw, that he was a son of god and not the world. But he did not help them to bear witness to their world. As that always is seen as treason to those who believe it is real, he was judged to be excluded from it by crucifixion.

Even though upholding the appearance of being someone definitive is very hard work and the price is suffering, most persons want to remain in the club of fellow believers and discard anything or anyone not bearing witness to the belief in being someone definitive.

Hanging on the cross, he was not acknowledged anymore by his followers, and the one he seemed to follow left him. He was totally on his own, which would have been unbearable for anybody believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, but necessary for having this belief to be undone because having followers or being a follower requires more than one, and there is no more than one.

This does not mean you feel alone. Although in the case of Jesus, everybody had left him, he did not leave them. Hence he was alone together. And since it is not possible to leave that which is one except in a fantasy of being more than one, being alone together is an obvious way to revert the fantasy. Read more about that in hack #8 ´Alone together´ is the key to that which is one. Especially because being alone together feels so good that there is no more to ask for, and thus no more to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one.

It makes no difference
One who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one says, that what and where you believe to be is an illusion, which appears to cover up the endlessness of that which is you. Most, however, prefer to ignore this so they can go on believing they are something, even though it is not going to last. But they softened the end with notions heaven, for example, where you forever will be something special.

Alcoholics like to follow a cure for hangovers, provided that it does not involve eliminating the cause of it, namely the alcohol. Likewise, those believing to be somebody definitive like to be cured for the suffering that this belief causes, if it does not involve eliminating the cause of their misery, namely the belief in being somebody definitive.

The unenlightened is worshipped for telling you, that you are unique and part of something greater, whereas someone compared to the enlightenment of that which is one is expelled for saying, that what you appear to be is nothing. Consequently, you are not part of anything. It is not possible because there is no more than that which is one and it requires more than one to be part of something.

Fortunately, one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one sees no difference between being expelled or worshipped because both ways attempt to witness that a world where there seems to be more than one is real, and there is no more than that which is one, so there is nothing to witness.
