If you want to dive into the bliss of the empty breath, it may be beneficial to read this intro about it. But if you are tired of words and just want the bliss you go to Take-offs to ´the empty breath´.

When Alexius many years ago was hired to teach graphic design in an advertising school in Denmark, he had a problem. Even though he had been designing magazines, websites, flyers and ads for companies big and small, he did not know how to do it. Everything he had done as a medium for the project he was hired to design so it would communicate the content of it.

So to provide the students with guidelines of how to design, he wrote two books with basic rules of how to do it, which he deducted from his intuitive way of designing. He also wrote a book on colour theory, by the way.

If not in the bliss of not believing to be someone, you are speculative

The empty breath cannot help us in regards to knowing how come we appear to be substantial beings separated from each other by time and space, because this is not possible, since oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no time and space. Yet the empty breath is beneficial in regards to exposing, that a world defined by time and space, therefore, is nothing but a fantasy made from empty space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

How to explain the empty breath?
In regards to passing on guidelines of how to connect with the empty breath and drift in its bliss of indifference to the belief in being someone definitive, he is in the same situation, as when he was involved in teaching how to design. He had no professional training in design to refer to. Likewise, he has no second-hand knowledge, he can use to explain how to connect with the empty breath.

Neither does he know how to explain, that what and where we experience to be is an artificial construct, designed by the brain to control and manipulate us into believing, that this experience is real and not a fabrication the brain has made from out of nothing.

But since he is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, he does not believe he is someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, nor does he believe to be someone in that which is one. On the contrary, he is nothing because it takes more than one to be someone, and there is no more than oneness since it is formless and therefore endless. In other words, what and where we appear to be is a fantasy made from out of nothing and experienced by nothing.

In this fantasy, however, he knows how to annul it and be in the state of not-knowing that the empty breath, like the other duality hacks, entails. In such a state, he was guided to watch a movie (You Disappear), which quoted the latest scientific explorations about the brain, which may be helpful in realising that everything which appears to be something is nothing.

Consciousness is a construction of thoughts comparable to the ones and zeros in a stream of binary code.

The fabrication of something from out of nothing
The short version of these discoveries is that the brain uses five per cent of its capacity to construct an image of a self, that is aware of being someone definitive through the experiences another small part of the brain continuously fabricate of a tangible world as if it is outside of the self and it is the self that has these experiences, which therefore seems to confirm the self to be someone substantial in a tangible world. Especially because this world is experienced to cause its thoughts and feelings.

These experiences of an external world the brain claim to process from the frequencies it receives via the senses, but this explanation, just like the experiences it fabricates, is a smokescreen to cover up, that it is all made up from nothing. That is why it does not differentiate between imagination and reality and uses the same organ to deal with both. A flower, therefore, is just as unreal as a plastic simulation of it.

Read more about the brain fabricating a world of something from out of nothing in the article Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´ and that everything experienced is an illusion in the article All experiences are equally unreal.

Being in the bliss of not believing to be someone is to be empty

Science states, the world that we seem to feel and see consist of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and just like a dream does not contain anything substantial, is what we perceive as elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The experiences interpreted as the most meaningful ones, namely those that seem to define you the most, are stored in the rest of the brain, and as the sum of these memories constitute what you believe to be, you are not just a fabrication of the brain, you are the brain. Every bit of it – not only ten per cent – works to make it appears as if you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and not just a fantasy made from out of nothing.

Whether an experience seems to be direct or coming from the heart, being physical or spiritual, it has taken the brain a second to generate it. Hence what you believe to be experiencing now happened one second ago. Actually, it never happened, because one second ago there was nothing, and it only seems as if you experience something now because you need to believe that to feel you exist.

The rest of the article is not based on the scientific discoveries revealed in the movie (You Disappear), nor on anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, as to the knowledge of Alexius, nobody else has published anything about the empty breath. See also Where do the hacks of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings come from.

The bliss of nothingness
Though science seems to know that the experience of something is made from nothing and therefore is make-believe, they are more interested in exploring something than nothing. It is in the latter, however, that the empty breath resides.

The experiences the brain fabricates of a tangible world only seem to be real if the self that the brain also has created perceives them as something. If not, they are exposed as nothing, and so is the self. To perceive the present experience as nothing, you go back to the empty void from where the brain has used one second to alter nothing into your current experience of something.

As that is where the empty breath resides, it only takes one second to connect with it and be in a state of not-knowing and its the bliss of nothingness.* To go back one minute in linear time, there is nothing specific you need to do or not to do. But you need to be willing to forget what and where you appear to be. Read more about that in the below paragraph The only requirement is a willingness.

If the brain is not kept active in a feedback loop with thoughts of separation for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, it falls into coma. See also the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks.

Not knowing what and where you are is the bliss of not believing to be someone

Not knowing what and where you are, the connection with the empty breath is automatically established, because it is a state of not-knowing.* Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since you cannot be somewhere, nor a state of not-knowing,* without having just a little experience of being someone, there is still someone to experience the world made up by the brain a state of not-knowing*. It is, however, not experienced as something but nothing, as the experience of you as someone is so vague that there is not enough consciousness to perceive the apparent different experiences to make a difference. Consequently, there is no separation to hide, that although it seems fun to play along with the fantasy of separation, doing that is nothing compared to the bliss of emptiness.

The world of the outer senses is a tale of something, the brain has made from the abstractness in the world of the inner senses. That is the short version. In the next article What and where are the inner and outer senses, you can read the longer and more nuanced story.

The inner and outer senses
When we are not connected with the empty breath, and therefore not in the blissful state of not-knowing* but either in the happiness of the basic self or the nervousness of special that is always stressing to get better in the world of the outer senses, the empty breath is still with us, provided we have just once connected with it, because it does not know of separation.

But it is only when the connection is mutual that the empty breath can function as an automatic gear change between the outer and inner senses, and make the abstractness in the world of the inner senses the base from where the world of the outer senses is perceived, so it does not appear to consist of something but nothing.

As all experiences are illusionary it includes the experience of the empty breath. But as this illusion unveils the bliss of nothing and there is so much of it that eventually you cannot ask for more, wherefore the belief that it is possible to be an have more than that which is one is undone.

This only makes only sense as long as you believe, that the experience of you as someone definitive in the world of the outer senses is real, because that experience as well as any other – including the connectedness with the empty breath or anything else considered to be spiritual – is a deception made from out of nothing.

Fortunately, the experience of the empty breath exposes this, so that the bliss of not believing to be someone is the last thing, you experience before this belief is undone and therefore does not seem to cover, that there never was or will be more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

In the flow of not believing to be someone

Going with the flow of the empty breath you become indifferent to what you get, so if you want something specific, you must disconnect from it and accept the stress, that comes from not being in the flow of nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The synchronisation of the inner and outer senses
To take the edge out of the stress we feel in the world of the outer senses, the empty breath synchs it with the world of the inner ones. Not because this world is more peaceful, but because it is a high-frequency world, so the speedy and restless energy that appears to cause stress in the low-frequency world of the outer senses does not seem stressful at all.

It is not thoughts as such, that prevents us from going with the flow, but the desire to use them to accomplishing something specific.

That being said, you might not want his synchronisation, because although it results in indifference to stress, it may not produce what you stressed to get. That is why most want to avoid the flow of the empty breath and endure the tension the hassle it takes to obtain what they want.

Like a pencil cannot make its scribblings go away but an eraser can, you cannot make your scribblings as someone definitive go away but the empty breath can.

Even though getting what they want does not result in lasting satisfaction, they prefer to carry on searching for something new and better to make them happy and lessen the stress that this entails through meditation, yoga or other techniques making them appear to not be egoistic, though it is all about becoming and having more at the expense of others (see That which is you has no end).

The bliss of not believing to be someone may appear as blurry


The more the connectedness with the empty breath cancels out the contrasts of tangible feelings – for example happiness and sadness – in the world of the outer senses by synchronizing them with the abstractness of the inner senses, the more you are indifferent to the apparent existence of the world experienced with the outer senses, because when you neither feel happy or sad about it does not make sense. This does not mean, that you begin to see the world of the outer senses as in this image, although that is a possibility, but that you begin to perceive its apparent differences to not make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When the substantial world of the outer senses is equally synchronised with the abstractness in the world of the inner senses, you are partially somebody and nobody, but not enough somebody to know what and where you are.

Though that means you are in a state of not-knowing, part of you as someone definitive is still kept intact in order for you to be there. Read more about this in the next article What and where are the inner and outer senses.

The same applies to experiencing the world of the inner senses. There must to be someone to experience it. If not, the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one is over, and so there is nothing to hide, there is no more than that which is one.

Going with the flow
Being process and not result minded though, the flow of the empty breath can also set off from what appears to be egoistic motivated. Just like it probably was part of the reflow for Alexius to start writing about the empty breath by following his own idea of emphasising the synchronisation of the outer and inner senses.

Yet going with the flow, the emphasis turned out to be on the bliss of emptiness, that arises from the connectedness with the empty breath and its indifference to the belief in being someone definitive.

No concepts survive the bliss of not believing to be someone

Concepts like the sun are going up and down are meant to mislead you into believing, the world revolves around you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

So do not let concepts of right and wrong prevent you from going with the flow. Even within the context of living in a world defined by time and space, most ideas are deceptive.

The ground beneath our feet is spinning at 1.000 miles an hour and the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour.

You may, for example, experience the sun to go up and down. Yet it only appears so, because you believe to be someone separated from a tangible world experienced to revolve around you. Yet it is not the sun that is going up and down, but what and where you believe to be. See The sun does not go up and down – it is a deception.

Ways to connect with the empty breath
It seems, that while in the flow of writing about the empty breath, ways of explaining how to ignite a take-off to it popped up. For example, by using the energy of the stress arising from the belief in being someone definitive as a take-off. Read more about how to do that in hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

The swing of an yin yang sign comes from the bliss of not believing to be someone

The empty breath can be felt like a swing of nothingness, that makes the body expand and contract and thereby supply it with oxygen. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath can be felt like a swing of nothingness supplying the body with oxygen through expanding and contracting it. See the paragraph The swing of the empty breath in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?

Just like everything else sensed, it is invisible and colourless until the brain ascribe it with a specific shape and colour. But as the brain cannot conceive nothingness without falling into coma, the empty breath remains invisible and colourless.

If this is what you want, it is not important whether you read hack #4, Being in a state of not-knowing from beginning to end or just browse it. What is essential is to not focus on anything in particular or spend time on processing it to integrate it.*** It is not about integrating or learning something but to unlearn everything, so you do not contain anything and thus is an empty vessel can be at service for the empty breath.

Only those believing to be special have the need to do things in their own pace.

Ways to not connect with the empty breath
The need to connect with the empty breath in your own pace and to spend time on processing what you have read about it comes from the belief, that what the brain makes you appear to be is real.

In order to support this belief, you or the brain, which basically is the same since what you believe to be is a construction of thoughts, need time to twist Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings into the already established concept of what and where you are (see Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´).

The bliss of not believing to be someone does not come from something but nothing

Looking for something you can relate to as your true self in the teachings of a guru or somebody else, you do not look for that which is real, because it is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to look for something. Since what you believe to be is a fantasy made from out of empty space, it is being undone when you do not relate to something but nothing because then there is no relation and therefore no more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This, however, is not necessary with the spiritual teachings in fashion. It has already been done by those promoting them so that even though spirituality is formless, it seems as if it can be obtained by someone definitive through coming from the heart or something else shaped by time and space.

In such teachings, you may seem to recognise the extraordinary entity, you believe, is your true nature. But whatever you believe to be is nothing, because spirituality is everything, as it is formless and therefore endless.

So do not read about the empty breath with the expectation of finding something to make you or the world better, but to become indifferent to what and where you appear to be.

It is a waste of time reading about the empty breath if you want to become more spiritual or wise, because just like what you believe to be, the empty breath is nothing but empty space (see the article ´The empty breath´ is empty space and so is what you believe to be).

So the less you seem to know something,** the less something appears to hide, what you believe to be is nothing. Hence there is not something to separate you from the empty breath.

Appearances do not matter in the bliss of not believing to be someone

It is not necessary to undo the belief in being someone definitive to connect with the empty breath, but it is essential to be willing to have it undone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The only requirement is a willingness
Leaving your comfort zone of knowing what and where you are** is not done by fighting or transforming your learned behaviour, but by being willing to undo the belief, that makes it possible to appear as if you are conditioned, namely the belief in being someone definitive.

About willingness see also Willingness to not exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

This willingness most often comes from admitting, that the appearance of you as someone definitive is not a matter of fact but of make-believe. And this you admit when acknowledging, you are not willing to undo the belief in being someone definitive, because this acknowledgement confirms what you appear to be is make-believe.

Momentarily being connected with the empty breath is very blissful, because it makes you indifferent to the belief that you are someone definitive, so there does not appear to be someone bothered about the appearance of anything.

Appearing there without being there
Having the belief in being someone definitive undone, does not mean that what you appear to is destroyed, reborn or awaken. Just like within the context of this belief, it is not Santa Claus that is undone when you grow up, but the belief that he is real. In short, the indifference to the experience of you as someone definitive does not change the look of it.

Since nothing matters when connected with the empty breath, you are free to pursue whatever seems to matter.

Looking for nothing is the door to the bliss of not believing to be someone

If you are not looking for something special to confirm your belief in being special, you will probably be indifferent the apparent differences in this image and therefore also to the apparent separation between the image and what you appear to be, and hence in the bliss of not-knowing what and where you are. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you start to grasp that what you appear to be is a fantasy, it is amazing to appear as if you are Santa Claus, a father, a mother or whatnot, while your on and off connection with the empty breath slowly but surely makes you indifferent to the belief that you are someone at all.

Reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings probably seem depressing, if you believe to be unique, because they do not imply there is any hope for you in the future, because that is nothing but empty space.

Yet the inclusion of hopelessness is the key to not look for something to hide the depression that is depressing anger and thus the nothingness from where bliss arises, when not hoping to find something there. See also the hack No Hope = Oneness in Extra Duality Hacks.

The bliss of not believing to be someone

Whether you believe the dog in this image is real or not, the image of it remains the same. Not believing it is real, however, you are indifferent to whatever it seems to make you think and/or feel. Hence you are free to play along with any kind of fantasy, the brain fabricates from this. This is what it is like to be in the indifference of the empty breath. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To be indifferent or not
The below metaphor may be beneficial in regards to picking up on what it is the empty breath brings about:

When you believe to be someone – whether physical or spiritual – something must be perceived to be different from you, so you appear to be separated from it and therefore, to be someone definitive. Thus when playing a game like Monopoly, for example, you do it to make its world of illusionary differences real by insisting that they make a difference.

But the more you are in the indifference of the empty breath, the more you play Monopoly to have fun pretending, that its apparent differences make a difference.

Connecting with the empty breath is not about being deeper, purer, balanced or whatnot, because being anything is part of the experience in being someone and the empty breath is not part of that but the nothingness that this experience is fabricated from.

How does it feel
The connection with the empty breath may be experienced as described by Alexius in the articles What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?, and The empty breath´ undoes all conditioning. But do not count on it, because his experience of it is not static. And even if it were, you and Alexius would probably experience it in each your own way – just like would do if having the same cup of tea. Besides the main attribute of the empty breath is indifference, and that is hardly an experience.

Alexius Jorgensen in the bliss of not believing to be someone


When not perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference, there is nothing to uphold the belief in separation and therefore neither in you as someone definitive. As that means there is nobody to judge something as wrong or good for that matter, you are in a state of not-knowing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Not trying to experience anything specific but including everything exactly as it is perceived to be brings about a state of not-knowing, because without excluding something there is nothing to define you as someone.

Hence you are therefore in the bliss of not-knowing what and where you are, and this is also where you are when connecting with the the empty breath, having glimpses of enlightenment, or applying any other the duality hack except for the enlightenment of that which is one.

If these states of bliss are identical is not to know, because they are all states of not-knowing*, which is an equal mix of empty space and the conscious experience of you as someone definitive, the brain has fabricated from that.

There is nobody in the bliss of not believing to be someone

In a state of not-knowing there is not enough consciousness to be aware of yourself as someone definitive separated from what you experience to a world outside of you. Thus you are in the bliss of indifference to the world of separation, that the brain fabricate to make you appear as if you are someone definitive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In this mix there is not enough consciousness to perceive the apparent differences in the world to make a difference, so you are indifferent to the belief in being someone definitive. Yet there is enough consciousness to cover that the world is nothing but empty space, so you still appear to be there, though in a more abstract way than when being fully conscious.

A state of not-knowing* lasts as long as you do not try to regain full consciousness (see Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´), but not more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, if you want to remain as if you are someone living in a capsule of time and space.

The enlightenment of that which is one though is not a state of not-knowing, since it totally erases the memory of ever having appeared to be someone definitive (see hack #5-7.2 Inner senses, enlightenment and glimpses of it), and without just a bit of that, there is nobody left to be in any kind of state.

Measured in linear time the enlightenment of that which is one probably just last a few minutes. We are so conditioned to believe, we are somebody definitive in a world defined by time and space, that the fear of annihilation takes over and we compulsively imagine to see something, so that we again appear to be somebody in a world defined by time and space.

This also applies to Buddha and Jesus or anybody else who has bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, because it only takes one to undo the belief in not being one, and there still appear to a world where there seems to be more than one, so every one has used fear as a way to reboot as somebody definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

In the article Nothing can stop you on Highway One except your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one you can read more about how the enlightenment of that which is one terminates what you believe to be and how the fear of that makes you leave enlightenment and return to that belief.

On top of that, it may not even be the empty breath, that is uncovered through the willingness to not uphold the belief in being someone definitive. Maybe it is the enlightenment of that which is one or a glimpse of it (see the article A reintroduction to the inner senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it), or the freedom that comes from pretending to be what you are not (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive).

Time is nothing in the bliss of not believing to be someone

Without the basic contrast of expansion and contraction, there is no experience of life. Yet what we experience as life is really death, because life is formless and therefore without a beginning and end, so anything that does not last forever is lifeless. It is, however, the life that makes it possible to have fantasies about being a limited being in a lifeless world – just like within the context of such a world, it is only due to that, you can to imagine being someone you are not in a virtual world of a video game. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The bliss of nothing cannot be obtained, as it is not something
By implementing of one or more of the duality hacks you cancel out the apparent difference between the opposing sides of the contrasts making up the experience of you as someone definitive in the world of the outer senses, so that there are no differences to attest to you being different from the world where you experience to be.

As the conscious experience fabricated by the brain of you as someone separated from a world outside of you, therefore, does not make sense, you do not know what and where you are. Thus being in a state of not-knowing*.

A state of not-knowing* set-off on its own accord by the willingness to not believe you are someone definitive.

This is not a state though, where you can arrange to go, when you feel like having it integrating, because there is not something to integrate, neither anybody to have something integrated, since what you believe to be is a fantasy made from out of nothing.

In this context it is rather the nothingness of you, that is to be integrated with the nothingness of the empty breath – or more to the point, the belief that you are someone definitive is to be undone by the empty breath, so there does not seem to be something obscuring, that no matter what you believe to be, you are not made from matter, astral energy or anything else but empty space – just like the empty breath.

The person the brain has fabricated to appear, as if it is you, will keep on saying, there must be something more. And if something more is what you want, you better forget about the duality hacks, as applying for example the empty breath, the belief that it is possible to be or have more is slowly but surely undone.

It is not about learning something but to unlearn everything
To sum it up, there is nothing to know, since that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless. So although there seems to be so much to know, when appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, there is only one thing to know in regards to the formlessness of oneness, namely that there is nothing to know.**

Differences do not make a difference in the bliss of not believing to be someone

In a state of not-knowing* – for example, induced by the empty breath – the indifference to the experience that the brain fabricates of you as someone definitive means that there is not someone with a need to adapt to it. That is why it is so blissful. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That is why the purpose of Alexius´ Enlightened NonTeachings is not to learn something new but to unlearn everything**. This is done by reading all of them – or flip through them – and apply one or more of the duality hacks until there is nobody to acknowledge, that the person fabricated by the brain is real, wherefore there is nothing but the bliss of being indifferent to the belief that you are someone definitive.

When you are connected with the empty breath bliss arises from being indifferent to the belief in being someone definitive.

But as the connection is a state of not-knowing*, there is not enough consciousness to be aware of the bliss, until a state of not-knowing is left in favour for the full consciousness of being someone definitive, where memories of the bliss, it is to be indifferent to this or any other consciousness, pop up.

When you leave the empty breath, it remains connected with you, because it does not know, that you believe to be someone, who is separated from everything in the low-frequency world experienced by the outer senses.

Yet it senses the stress coming from this belief, so it synchs it with the high-frequency world of the inner senses, which is indifferent to the restlessness that speedy thoughts and feelings seem to produce.

What you believe in being does not exist
Should you wonder, who chooses to believe, that the image fabricated by the brain of someone definitive is you, or who has programmed the brain to produce this image, or who is connecting with the empty breath, or who is wondering about this, the answer is nobody, because the experience of being somebody, whether in a so-called spiritual or physical sense, is just like having a daydream within this experience. There is nobody in it.

Everything is new in the bliss of not believing to be someone

Even though some plants are edible, not all of them are. Often the most beautiful of them often that should not be eaten if you want to remain as someone living in a capsule of time and space. And if you do not want to end, when your appearance there is over, you better avoid beautiful ideas like living in the nowcoming from the heart and being transformed, because they are based on the belief in being someone definitive, and everything definitive, contrary to the formlessness of oneness, has an end. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Thus the empty breath and the other duality hacks are therefore just as dreamlike as anything else in the experience of being someone definitive, no matter what and where that seems to be. See also Whatever that you are aware of is an illusion because it requires more than one to be conscious of something.

Appearances do not matter in the bliss of not believing to be someone

There are lots of ways to appear as if you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, but there is no way to leave it because you are not in it. Just like within the context of such a world, a dreamer is not its a dream, and therefore not returning to its bed when the dream is over. Likewise, you do not return to the formlessness of oneness, when your apparent life in a capsule of time and space is over, because you never left it. That is not possible, because it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But contrary to the illusions – for example, being transformed into something more real by living in the now and/or coming from the heart – promoted by most so-called spiritual movements in fashion, the duality hacks do not attempt to transform anything but to expose that everything experienced to exist is made from out of nothing.

Connecting with the empty breath, for example, you become indifferent to the differences in the experiences produced by the brain. Hence you do not believe you that you are someone definitive separated from others but that it is something you pretend to be.****

Though the experience of world where there seems to be more than one seems to hide there is no more than that which is one, the experience of such a world is bound to end, because that which is one is formless and therefore without end.

And as what you pretend to be, you are not, that which is you does not end, when the experience of you as someone in a capsule of time and space is over. Furthermore, until then it is much fun pretending to be what and where you are not,**** as absolutely no harm comes from that.

APPENDIX:
As Alexius continuously goes back and forth between nothing and something there might be a mix up in description of a state of not-knowing and its bliss of nothing versus its after-effect and the happiness of something, which comes from returning from a state of not-knowing with the slate wiped clean and thus in the default mode of a basic self, that automatically is in sync with the brain and thus rewarded with shots of happiness.

Especially, because there is not conscious enough in a state of not-knowing to be aware of it, so his description of it is based on the memories popping up when he has returned to the conscious experience of being someone. Also, because he momentarily turns into the special self and the stress that this entails.

It should also be pointed out that the directions of how to connect with the empty breath mostly are geared towards the special self, that can use the stress from always having to know it is to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. The basic self, on the other hand, is so laid-back that it has no need to know what it is and therefore not far from saying ´Dunno.´ Doing so, the basic self does not perceive feeling fulfilled as better than depressed, or being right to be better than wrong, because nor those or any other feeling is perceived as something. Consequently, there is nothing to hide the bliss of emptiness.

This does not mean that feeling of anger or love, for example, does not pop up but that no feeling is perceived to make a difference. Thus they all uncover the same bliss of nothing.

Read more about saying ´Dunno´ in ´I know what it is´ versus ´It is what it is´ versus ´Dunno what it is´, the basic and special self in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one, and the after-effect of a state of not-knowing in the article From the bliss of not-knowing to the happiness of serving.


*) You can read much more about a state of not-knowing in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss or in the articles of this hack – especially Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath.

**) This does not mean that you should avoid learning and knowing something, or being and having more when it comes to the practical aspects of appearing to be someone definitive. Yet there is no need to think about it when connected with the empty breath because its indifference to differences makes it impossible to make choices, so in its flow, you are having the belief in being someone special undone, while enjoying the excitement of this belief to its fullest.
