Being in sync with the script of the brain or not [draft]

Nobody has ever seen Santa Claus. He is purely make-believe. The same applies to what and where you appear to be (read more about that here). Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The self, the consciousness, the brain and that which is one

The brain cannot force the consciousness that it has implemented in the self it has created to acknowledge the experiences it continuously fabricates of a tangible world. But if the self wants to appear as it exists as someone substantial in the tangible world of the experiences, its consciousness has to endorse them as experiences of the self (read more about that here) because otherwise there is not something to confirm the existence of it.

If appearing as someone substantial in a tangible world does not seem appealing to the self, it should not pay attention to the stream of thoughts the brain makes to simulate the existence of such a world. Nor should it try to stop or change the constant stream, but sense to the emptiness from where the brain seems to have created it.

This, however, is not possible to do while experiencing to be something. But as the experience of something is made by the brain, and as it takes one second to do that (read more about that here), you can sense the unprocessed version of any experience of something at the beginning of that second (read more about that here), and thus remain in the bliss of not-knowing (read more about that here) what and where the brain makes you experience to be one second later.

You cannot continue in this state of not-knowing* for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most. See the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks. After that, you must again acknowledge that you are someone substantial by perceiving the experiences rendered by the brain from out of nothing to be something because otherwise, the brain falls into a coma, and you disappear in the nothingness from where you were conceived. Thus there is nobody to experience nothing to be something anymore.

If the case of the latter, you see, hear, feel and taste glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one until there is no perception of time and space and thus no glimpses but either one light, sound, feeling or taste. You will not notice this, because it takes more than than one to be aware of something. For the same reason, there is nobody to know that somebody once believed to be a world defined by time and space.

As there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless, and as it takes more than one to experience something, the experience of being someone who sees this image is an illusion. And so is, of course, the experience of this article or anything else regardless it seems to be spiritual or mundane. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In other words, since it takes more than one to exist, what you believe to exist is gone, and it was never there. And as this includes the believer, there is nobody to experience the light, sound, feeling or taste of oneness. Nor that the nothingness of you gracefully falls through a boundless black hole until there is no hole or anything else appearing to hide that which always has been and always will remain, namely the formlessness of oneness.

You can read about the ins and outs of a black hole here. And here you can learn how to have glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one.

The above explanation should not be taken too literally, as doing so you remain in the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Having this belief undone just requires to admit that you do not have the willingness for this because by doing so, you acknowledge that being and having more than that which is one is make-believe. Thus the journey without distance to that which is one has begun.

About willingness, see also Willingness not to exclude but to include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one or ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

To make long short, the enlightenment of that which is one abruptly terminates all experiences and thus the one appearing to have them. Applying the other duality hacks, it is a process over time, which they help you to enjoy – especially the hack you read, hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one. So, for now, we go on as if we are somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one, and we explore how our experience of being there can be a happy one. 

What you believe to be can be compared to a smartphone. Although it can do thousands of things, it is entirely dependent on its operator – just like you are of the brain. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The fear of being nobody makes you dependent on the brain

Although the basic self feels free to follow the brain and the special self feels free from it, none of them is free. If not for the brain, it is not possible to appear as if you are somebody. Thus the freedom of the special self is pure speculation built on the perception that its experiences are coming from the heart, higher consciousness or whatnot, although all experiences are processed by the brain.

So in each their one way, the basic and special self needs the brain. Without it, they are nobody, and since this is so frightening that they rather die than acknowledging their non-existence,** they are equally dependent on the brain to be ratified as somebody. The basic self does not hide this and proudly follows the brain. The special self, on the other hand, denies this and always oppose the brain. Yet what you fight, you need.

Just like the tricks of a magician are laid bare, the more you watch them, the experiences of the brain are exposed tas nothing distorted into something, the more you follow the brain. Hence the basic self sooner or later realises that the appearance as someone in a tangible world is a deception.

Having fully realised that it does not appear to be someone anymore. Consequently, there is nobody to recognise that this or any other realisation is an illusion because there is nobody to know anything since that takes more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

Relating to the script of the brain

The special self is so removed from its basic being that it needs to be grounded or be transformed into a higher self (read more about being grounded here). But the basic self has no such needs. It does not search for anything but relates to the thoughts coming from the brain as they are, so it always is in sync with the present experience processed by the brain.

The basic self has no need to stand out as special. Hence it is of no interest for those with such a demand, unless they project something special on it themselves. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Relating to the thoughts of the brain does not mean you must be in agreement with them to feel good. As long as your reaction refers to the thoughts of the brain, you will feel entertained whether you seem to be angry or calm.

Nor does relating to the thoughts of the brain make your life more consistent. Maybe you get an impulse to read this article in the middle of doing the dishes, and so you do, regardless of being the basic or special self, because the brain is in charge no matter what you believe to be. It is not in charge of how you perceive this interruption and thus, how you respond to it.

The special self does relate to the present experience produced by the brain but how it had expected it to be. Thus it feels fragmented.

As the special self feels incomplete, the apparent inconsistency in its experience triggers that, so it perceives it to be wrong and thus responds in a neurotic way. It blames the brain for this and tries to exclude what it perceives to get from it and only include what it judges to come from from the heart, for example. But all experiences are processed by the brain, and it is not possible to eliminate any part, except in one´s perception of them.

The basic self, on the other hand, perceives the apparent disturbance as an integrated part of the day´s entertainment. That is if it perceives any disruption at all. Most likely not, because the basic self feels fulfilled, so it has no need to perceive anything as incomplete.

The special self wants to be free of the brain, but the only one oppressing it is itself. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being in sync with the script of the brain or not

If you perceive the sun to go up and down, your perception is out of sync with the script of the brain because the sun is not going up and down. It is what and where you believe to be, that is going up and down. See also The sun never goes up and down – it is a deception.

If your perception is in sync with the speed of the Earth and thus of you moving with it in that speed, you feel calm inside while racing outside.

As your perception, therefore, is not coordinated with what is going on, namely that your feet is spinning at around 1.000 miles an hour, while the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour. Hence you will not feel the thrill of moving at such a high rate but the depression coming from a static perception founded on unstable thoughts.

This stagnant perception, which is the one society supports, is meant to make you think that fulfilment does not come from not resonating with the present movement as it is but with a slowed-down version of it that gives you time to make a perception of yourself where you look powerful, humble, balanced, active or whatever you reckon will make appear more impressive.

Feeling the pulsation of the moment, however, there is no time to make up a perception where you seem to be important, nor is there any need to do that because the body shivers with ecstasy as if it is has been shaken by an earthquake of tenderness.

In the case of Alexius he sometimes feels that it like listening to the Ukrainian pianist Lubomyr Melnyk playing extremely rapid, intricate patterns of notes, which produce overtones so trance-inducing, that a cascade sound of purity makes you forget, it is ignited by the speed and complexity underneath it. Read more about that here.

There is no right way to perceive the complexity of a moment. But as long as the perception relates to it and not an edited and simplified version of it, every perception will make you feel good. So good, indeed, that the inherent speed of it may bring about glimpses of enlightenment (read about glimpses of enlightenment here).

The special self may claim that it wants this, but that is a lie. It fears it because speed prevents it from being in control and to thus to shape its appearance. That is why it meditates or something else to slow things down so that it has the time to consume static stuff like books and clothes and become wiser and more beautiful in the future, which it imagines will make it more loved.

To appear as if you are in a world of something but not of it and thus in the bliss of nothing, you can neither be in or out of sync with the script of the brain because both ways ratify that you are in its world of something as well as of it. So unlike the basic self who basically says »It is what it is« and the special self who says »I know what it is,« you say »Dunno what it is.«

Perceiving the script as it is what it is, you can count on always being in sync with it and thus to feel entertained. Besides, you are not that far from the perception, dunno what it is, which connects you with the empty breath* and its the bliss of nothing instead of the brains entertainment of something.

When saying so, you are not ratifying the world of the brain to be something. Since you, therefore, move back the second in linear time it has taken the brain to twist the nothing into the present experience of something (read more about that here), you are in the perceived gap between nothing and oneness but without the awareness of being someone in a world of something, so even though you still appear to be someone in such a world, you do not perceive yourself to be anybody in particular or the world where you appear to be as something. As you, therefore, get the bliss of nothing, there is no reason to look for the happiness of something. Read more about that in hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

Notes about nothing

  • To make nothing appear as if it is something, the brain constructs a self with a built-in consciousness which through its perception of the experiences the brain continuously fabricates confirms that they are something and thus also the one who appears to have the experiences (read more about that here).
  • No matter how you experience the appearances on a computer screen and where you believe the experience to come from, what you experience to be there is not there. Every part of it is an illusion generated by the computer, and it only seems to be real if you want to perceive that it is.
  • Just like a dream is a construction of nothing that never leaves the dreamer although it seems to be happening here and there, the self and the world that appears to be outside of it is a construction of nothing that never leaves the brain, regardless what and where the self believes to be.

*) Read about a state of not-knowing in the below hacks, and the empty breath in the two first hacks

**) An obvious way to escape the exposure of your nothingness is to have sex with others or yourself. If you are more desperate than that, you may choose to die and doing that having a near-death-experience with tunnels of light or whatever the brain has enough oxygen to produce of experiences which can reassure you that you are somebody, so you choose to return to the consciousness of being that. See also the articles in the hack No Death But Life, which you can find in Extra Duality Hacks.

Fear is just a four letter word

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The less you care about your appearance in the world. The less there is to be and therefore, to fear. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NOTE: This article is part of hack 2.3 Choosing or not.

Only by pretending can you appear to be what and where, you are not

In Spain – like in any other country – you spend a long time learning the rules of interacting, so that you can pretend to be a person there and therefore be acknowledge to be real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It takes time to learn to pretend to be a specific person. When Alexius was a child, he learned how to pretend to be a Danish person in a cold climate. Nowadays he is learning how to pretend to be a Spanish person in a warm climate because that is where he appears to be.

So he is learning to pretend to be a person who speaks loud, shouts at waiters, enjoys having breakfast in a bar around 11AM, thinks 8PM is too early for dinner and does not say ´thank you´. Also, he is learning to pretend to be a person who greets a woman by kissing them on both cheeks and who is not politically correct by saying nigger and mixing things in non-established ways.

These are some of the very important things, that seems to defines a Spanish person in the public room – at least as seen from the perspective of someone formerly conditioned to be a Danish person.

Suffice to say is that every country has its own definition of how to be somebody in their part of the world, so wherever you appear to be, you must pretend to be someone who is in accordance with the local rules if you want to be acknowledged as if you are somebody there.

This also applies to smaller groups of people – even in a love relation, where the amount of love you seem to get depends on how good you are in pretending to be and have what the other one needs.

Whatever you choose pretending to be and have does not matter, because what you pretend to be and have is not real.

It is not possible for that which is you to feel happy or sad because it takes more than one to feel something and that which is you is no different from that which is one. Appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one it is, however, possible to feel happy or sad. Fortunately, the apparent difference between these or any other feelings does not make a difference, when the person who appears to feel them is a person you pretend to be. Selfie © Alexius Jorgensen.

Pretending to be someone definitive instead of believing to be one does not mean, that everything will work out for in the way that you expect. But it means, that when something does not work out as expected and a feeling of sadness passes by, it is not a problem that needs to be fixed, because you know it is just the person you pretend to be, who is sad. That which is you is not sad. Neither anything else, because it is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to feel anything.

If you, on the other hand, believe to be a specific kind of person, for example, a Danish one, you will judge many things to be wrong in the Spanish persons and feel that they and not you must change. Hence you may choose to reside in communities of Danish people there. This is not a possibility for Alexius though, because he is the only one in the Spanish area where he appears to be, who has formerly been conditioned as a Danish person.

Alexius pretends to be a non-teacher as well as a non student.

Fortunately, it is not a problem, because to him it is fun pretending to be someone he is not, so it does not matter, if he must pretend to be Danish or Spanish and what and how feelings seem to manifest.

You cannot know, how come the person in this image is wearing a t-shirt saying ´I am a screamer´. She might not even know herself. Maybe she imagine, it will make her look cool, and maybe you imagine something else. To make long short: The cause is imagined. Hence there is no real effect. It is also imagined – and so is the whole world, regardless you if you are imagining it to have a so-called spiritual or mundane cause. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The idea behind Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is, that the world is not real, and as you are that which is real, you can not be in an unreal world. So if you believe to be a person there, you are stuck in a capsule of time and space, where everything – also believing to be energy or something spiritual – has a beginning and an end. If you, on the other hand, do not believe to be there, you know what and where you are not. Knowing that, you pretend to be what you are not, and so what you appear to be, does not seem to hide that which is you.

An effect needs a cause for it to be an effect. If there is no real cause, there cannot be a real effect.

How can you know, you pretend to be in the world?
One way to know, that you pretend to be in the world, is to look at the cause of the actions of for example your boss, spouse or cat. You cannot see what is causing their actions. Even if they tell, you cannot know if they are making it up. Hence you can only ´know´, what caused their actions, by imagining it. And as only what is not real, needs to be imagined, the cause is not real, so the action it seems to cause is an illusion.

In other words: If the cause is imagined, so is the effect and vice versa. And as nobody knows the cause of the world it is an imagination, that it is there. The same applies to you as a person in it.

The breath and the effect of it going in and out of a body is imagined. You are that which is one, and it takes more than one to be or have a body.

To make long short: If you are real, you cannot be in the world, as what is real cannot be part of what is not real. However, you can pretend to be part of it.

For more about cause and effect see the hack No Cause = No Effect = No Karma in Extra Duality Hacks.

They want to avoid embracing their own self hatred.

It is not integration with the world that will make you complete but disintegration from the self, you have constructed and hate for all its imperfection and lack of control. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Those considering themselves to be spiritual like to tell others, that they should be more integrated with nature and mother earth. But just like it is not possible to integrate anything of the virtual world in a game like Super Mario – apart from your perception of it – it is not possible to integrate the elements in a world of duality apart except your perception of it … and perceptions are not lasting.

You cannot be in a virtual world, but you can pretend to be there
As someone in a world of duality, you cannot be part of nature or anything else, as there is no duality without separation. A person is just as separated from nature as from a television show. This includes those talking about integration with nature and whatnot because the nature of duality is separation.

But they feel guilty about not being able to live their own ideas and instead of facing the illusionary nature of their dreamy concepts, they want to make somebody else pay for their failure by making them guilty of not being integrated with the beauty of nature. They write books and arrange seminars to teach others to be integrated with the now, the nature, love and whatnot for no other reason than to avoid embracing their own self-hatred.

The cover-up of self-hatred is one of the main motivators of the world. You think, that there is a self but it is just an idea you have spent years of hard work to establish. Unfortunately, it has not resulted in a self, you can love, so you hate, what you have made yourself to be. You try to improve it by integrating it with this or that or simplify it through meditation hoping you will get better tomorrow. But nothing works, and the reason is simple. There is no self, no soul, no mind, no ego, no person and no tomorrow. Just like there is no Super Mario to improve and no tomorrow for him.

Disintegration sets you free
Integration will never work, but disintegration will. The more you disintegrate from the world, the happier you will be. Disintegration sets you free to explore the world, as you see fit without any risk of losing anything because even though you appear to be there you are not of it.

If you have read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings for some time, you may be aware, that the foundation of them is that the world of duality is an illusion. This means of course, that Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings also are illusionary, including the description of duality, non-duality and whatnot.

It is also an illusion that what you appear to be in a world of duality can be transformed or that there in any way is a way out of duality because if you are real, you are not there. But that something is real is an illusion as well, as real is defined by what is not real, and what is not real is an illusion.

Pretending to be in the comedy of duality, you are free to being wrapped up in any of its illusions, for example love, compassion, hope, sharing and whatnot, without childish ideas of changing it, or realising anything but that it is all an illusion.

You can, therefore, relax appearing to be in a world of duality. Nothing can hurt you. You are not there – just like in the context of the world you are not in a video game, that you are playing. You just pretend to be there so nothing in the game can hurt you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Meditation is a con trick conducted by the rogue consciousness of the self

Whether your eyes are open or not, whatever you experience is a symbol of that which is life. If that is not what you see, meditation will not change that. On the contrary, it will confirm the belief that there are good and bad things to experience.

To experience something, there must be more than one. Consequently, any experience in meditation is a maintenance and not an escape of duality. No worries. You do not need to escape duality. That which is you is not there. It is not possible – just like within the context of duality you are not in the greens of this image, though you may pretend to be ´there´*. But where you pretend to be you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Traditional eastern meditation, as it is carried out all over the world, seems to be all about emptying the mind for thoughts, whereas the western meditation founded on Christianity appears to be about filling it with ideas of god.

Both the experience of emptying or filling the mind is a construction of thoughts.

The mind, though is not a fact, but a construction of thoughts, that you have chosen to believe is real. So whether subtracting from this belief or adding to it, the result is just another belief.

To think that you can stop thoughts is an imagination based on the belief, that you are someone definitive – if you did not believe this, there would be no thoughts to stop, as there would be nobody thinking them …

If you do not believe thoughts to be yours, you cannot appear to be someone specific in a world of duality, so without them, you could not meditate. In other words, meditation is a multiplication of thoughts.

Who but the very dirty, needs to meditate every day to purify themselves. I do not even wash my clothes daily. Why should I clean them, when they are not dirty?

There´s nothing to purify.

Just like the world is a simulated reality, so is this image – and no meditation or anything else will make it real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is a con trick conducted by the rogue consciousness of the self (read more about the rogue consciousness of the self here), that meditation will purify, change or transform you. In the disguise of a do-gooder, it promises you, that thoughts will disappear when you meditate so that there is nothing to disturb you from being at peace. Still, most have the opposite experience, namely that there appear to be more thoughts when they start meditating (read more about that here). If they dare to complain about it, they are in a patronising way told that this is part of the healing process.

Anything that involves more than one is an illusion, so the same applies to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. In other words, they are not different from anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, except if they are useful for you in regards to exposing the illusion of such a world.

There is, however, nothing to heal but the sick belief that it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of that which is one.

Meditation does not give you lasting peace or transform you into a higher state of being, and the teacher of meditation has not something, that you do not have yourself. You need no help, because all what is needed is that which makes it possible to experience a the world where there seems to be more than one, namely that which is one, and everybody has that.

What to conclude? Not much really, maybe to say that thoughts have no power unless you use them to prove you are someone specific because doing so you become a victim of them. Meditation, however, will not change that. On the contrary, mediation will enhance the belief, that you are someone specific because the reason you meditate is to fix the problems resulting from believing to be someone definitive.

There is no problem, but the belief in being someone specific.

So if anything should be stopped, it is the belief that thoughts are yours. They only seem so, because you are holding onto them as if they are in you and therefore are you, and consequently appear to prove your existence as someone in the world. The same purpose is also the behind the idea of stopping them, except that in this case it is not about your existence as someone in the world, but about becoming someone different from it, namely a so-called spiritual person.

That which is you is not someone definitive but the formlessness of that which is one. And as formlessness is endless and therefore everything, so is you. Consequently it is not possible to become centred, higher or anything else.

But to make long short, there is nothing to be or become, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

Thoughts are only disturbing when you believe they are yours. And this you only do, because they apparently can be used to prove, you are someone special and important. But if there is no need to be that, there is nobody to impress and nothing to search for.

Consequently, there is no sense in constructing anything specific out of thoughts, so they are not bid welcome. Hence they do not appear to be disturbing or to cause noise. In other words, thoughts do not need to be stopped or transformed via meditation, chanting and whatnot in order to have peace of mind.

Please do not turn the above into one more thing, that you must try to be. Firstly, not caring about thoughts is not a state of being but rather of not-knowing. Secondly, in a world of duality, it is not possible to always go around in such a state, as without knowing the contrasts of duality, there is no world to experience. You cannot experience what is up, for example, if you do not know what is down**. Therefore the state of not-knowing, which is called a perfect moment in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, is on and off.

In other words, as a world of duality is make-believe, you cannot continuously appear to be in such a world without believing in something. Generally, you, therefore, stick to the belief that you are someone definitive. Nevertheless, you can choose to change this belief into another belief, namely that you pretend to be someone definitive. This allows you to believe in something, which is necessary to appear as if you are someone in a make-believe world, while at the same time having this belief undone since what you pretend to be, you are not.*

When the belief in being someone definitive is completely undone, there is nobody to experience a world of duality, so nothing appears to hide there never was and never will be anything else than non-duality since it is formless and therefore endless.

Those into meditation would be better off switching to SSRIs or beta-blockers and use the time saved to explore the world where they believe to be because doing that, they honour the choice of believing this. Thus they are able to correct it.

If you meditate to find peace inside yourself, you believe there is a difference between inside and outside. Hence you confirm that which seems to hide peace, namely separation.

The correction does not come from having insights, peace, power, being deeper or any other bullshit, that enhances the belief in being someone definitive, but from having nothing. That is the correction.

This does not mean you cannot have a house, for example, while you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, but that it is not perceived to be yours since you do not believe that you are there. It is just something you pretend to be.*

Though the difference between for example up and down is sensed in a perfect moment, it is not perceived to make a difference. This applies to any other contrast sensed. As nothing lasts in a world of duality, neither does a perfect moment, so it is on and off moments of not-knowing. That is until you do not care about what and where you appear to be at all because that is an invitation for the enlightenment of that which is one to erase all experiences of duality.

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

**) As duality is a construction of contrasts everything comes in pairs, for example up and down, and as you cannot experience one part of a contrast without knowing the other, be aware that as high as you go, the low you must fall. This is also so in a perfect moment. Yet there the apparent difference between up and down is not perceived to make a difference.
