Nothing that can be seen is real

Photo of forced perspective by Erin O’Keefe

This photo by Erin O’Keefe has a forced perspective, where the feeling of space and the accepted reality of it does not necessarily align.

Perceived from a world of duality, non-duality is totally flat because it is formless and therefore without any dimensions. Since it for the same reason has no beginning and end, there is no more than non-duality. Consequently, everything that has a size is an illusion.

Eyes do not see. It is the brain, that fabricate the images, you seem to see. Actually, the brain can produce perfect images of what appears to be a realistic world out there, even with eyes closed. In other words, you are deceived by the brain – but only because you want to.

Appearing to be a person in a world of duality, you may believe that a world defined by time and space is real. Still, it is just as illusionary as the above flat photo by Erin O’Keefe, which has been fabricated to fool you into experiencing it as dimensional.

»In architecture I love the idea of forced perspective. You can use space to manipulate people’s impressions of the space. The feeling of the space and the reality of the space doesn’t necessarily align.« Erin O’Keefe in the article ´Mind-Bending Dioramas That Distort How You See Reality´ from Wired and from where the above picture is taken.

As it is impossible to fabricate something formless, the formlessness of non-duality is not an illusion – and as that which is formless cannot be seen, everything that can be seen is not real. What is not real, though, symbolises that which is real, namely the formlessness of non-duality.

In hack #2.3 Life is flat you can read about the flatness of non-duality, and how a world of duality is a simulated reality layered on top of non-duality. The layer is fabricated by imagining, that it is possible to be outside of non-duality, and in such separated state use fragments of it added together, so that they appear to form a dimensional world, where there seems to be more than one moving around in space and time.

The more fragments there are added, the more the world of duality mistakenly appears to be the one and only reality. This includes the appearance of god and other so-called spiritual beings. The first separation from non-duality is actually done by what is perceived to be an almighty god, which immediately multiplies the fragmented into a simulated layer of reality called the universe.

This is not meant to say, it is bad to believe in god. You cannot appear in a world of duality without believing in something, and whether it is god, satan, love or another concept, you believe in is all the same. Actually, whatever you totally devote yourself to will dissolve any layer of illusion.

This article is actually a layer on top of code of HTML etc, that has no pics – only words, that are sent to your browser commanding it to fabricate an appearance of this article. But that code is also a layer. It sits on top of the basic computer code. Nothing, that seems to appear via the computer, is real.

This article is actually a layer on top of computer code, that you can see a part of in this screen dump of the code of the article. There are no photos to see in it – only words, which are sent to your browser commanding it to fabricate an appearance of an article illustrated by photos. This code, however, is also a layer, that sits on top of the basic code of your electronic media. In other words, everything, that seems to appear on the screen of an electronic media is a simulation– just like everything in a world of duality is a simulation.

Within the context of duality, this article, you seem to read on an electronic media, is a layer that an app has fabricated from the programming code underneath the article, which most humans would not be able to perceive as this article.

The whole internet, that you may experience as an exciting world, is a layer on top of programming languages like HTML and JAVA. If not transformed by your web browser, you would not be able to perceive the layer, that looks like this article.

This digital photo does not have the look, that you expect a digital raw converter to produce. You also expect the real world to be in colours. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A digital photo is layered on top of raw digital info, that no human would perceive as a photo. The image that seems to be there is a layer constructed by a raw data converter into – in the case of the internet – a JPEG or PNG image.

To make long short: What you seem to see in a world of duality is always a layered illusion on top of another layer of illusion. It is, however, a misunderstanding to peel off layers to get to that which is not an illusion. Dealing with layers – whether you experience them to be made by thoughts, feelings and whatnot –confirms them to be real, though only that which cannot be experienced is real.

Wavelengths of light can be compared to binary data, that are accumulating the simulation, of the webpage, that you consider to see on your screen right now. Wavelengths have no form, color or depth of field, as it seems in this pic simulating a mixture of wavelengths and binary data.

INTERLUDE:
Not just ultimately speaking but also physically, you do not see colours or forms, but the wavelength of light hitting the retina of the eye. Colour and shape are assigned by the brain to the wavelengths of light, so they seem to produce coherent images of the world in the way you have conditioned yourself to perceive it – regardless that all wavelengths of light actually are colourless as well as formless, and that the motion of the image, the brain use time to process, has been extrapolated so that the time delay in processing does not interfere with the thoughts or actions, you perceive to happen now.

Scientifically speaking, everything seen as opaque and substantial consists of empty space manipulated by the brain into an experience as something tangible. In other words, the world that you seem to feel and see is make-believe.

In an augmented reality created via special glasses, your digitally altered face can be seen like that by others also make those special glasses.

In augmented reality, that can appear via special glasses, for example, your face can digitally be altered like in this image and seen in the same way by others wearing similar glasses. This image is grabbed from an article about augmented reality.

PART 2:
Let us say you have invited a friend for dinner tomorrow and plan to serve ravioli with pesto sauce. The exact moment you imagine this, the same moment it is done. The more concrete and material image of it that arrives tomorrow in a slightly different version is an afterimage of the more transparent version you had in your mind.

Not all that you imagine arrives as an afterimage. The engine of the world is to be compared to a beta version of an app, so not everything works as it is supposed to.

Time and space in the world of a game like Super Mario is construction, and everything that can possibly happen there is pre-programmed. Events may seem to progress in time, but they are all stored together on a tiny spot without any time and space in between them. In other words, small and big is an illusion, so is past and future. The vastness of the world is simply an illusion made by the play of light on the screen.

Maybe without knowing it, the makers of games like that are replicating how the world – included bonus ones like astral worlds – is fabricated, namely in the exact same way as a video game.

The new technology called AR – augmented reality – can also be used to demonstrate this. You put on some glasses that changes what you see in front of you according to how they are programmed so that you appear to participate in a virtual world fabricated on top of – and from elements of – the physical world.

Everything in the virtual world appears to be as real as in the physical world – just like chatting on social media feels like talking in the physical world, although social media is virtual.

»We have absorbed the internet into our nervous systems, and it has made us different,« says Canadian director David Cronenberg, who is very fascinated by technology, in the article David Cronenberg on Predicting the Future and What a Dog’s Reality Is Like.

AR glasses can also be programmed to give you a unique appearance, so that other persons with the same kinds of glasses will see you with the programmed appearance of your choice.

The world. that you think you see, can be compared to what you see wearing glasses, that are programmed to make a world where there seems to be more than one appear on top of that which is one.

It seems that only one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one grasps, that what is typically perceived to be real is just an artificial reality layered on top of that which is real. It is like everybody is wearing glasses programmed to see a world where there seems to be more than one, although there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one since formlessness is endless.

¡¡¡ Reality is right in front of you. All you have to do is take off the glasses that appear to make a world that can be seen on top of that which cannot be seen, namely that which is one !!!


NOTES:

From non-duality to duality and back

It is not possible to drink the water from the bottle in this pic, because the bottle is a simulation – but it is possible to imagine to drink the water. The imagination will never quench your thirst though.

It is not possible to drink the water from the bottle in this image, because the bottle is a simulation – but it is possible to imagine drinking it. This imagination though will never quench your thirst. Likewise it is not possible to be fulfilled in a world where there seems to be more than one, as it is nothing but a simulated reality on top of that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That which is one

… is no different from the formlessness of that which is you. But as formlessness has no size it is nothing. Yet it is also everything because formlessness is endless. In other words, there is no more than the formlessness of eternal life, which also is called non-duality.

Schräge Parallelen

Nothing in the world is what is seems to be. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

It takes more than one to see anything, so if you see this image, you have tricked yourself into thinking, you are not one. You may also have tricked yourself into seeing convergent red lines, when, actually, all lines are parallel, and it is the blue boxes that are offset.

What if that which is one …

… could be divided into more than one. It is not possible, because it is formless, and the speed of it is infinitely fast, so there is no time and space making it possible to differentiate anything. Yet it seems possible to imagine slowing down the speed of it until it is so slow that it seems possible to make out separated appearances in the distance.

This still photo of Scarlett Johansson in ´Lucy´ is grabbed from the internet.

Think of the movie Lucy, where Luc Besson via Scarlett Johansson demonstrates, that if you speed up time infinitely, any object in motion disappears – or in the context of this article becomes one. The world is a reverse example of that. A slowed down movie of oneness you could say.

One of these separated appearances in the distance is imagined to be you. Both you and everything else though is as flat as an image in this article, because formlessness has no dimensions. But when what you is imagined to be observes everything else from different angles and distances, it appears as if it gets smaller and bigger. In other words, it seems to exist in time and space, and so you conclude the same applies to you.

Movements that do not exist. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The book ´Eye Benders: The Science of Seeing and Believing´ written by Clive Gifford explains, the brain sees movements that do not actually exist, and it also fabricate images to fill what it perceives to be gaps in the world. You can read more about this in the article The closer you look, the less you believe what you see is real.

To make long short, a world where there seems to be more than one (also called a world of duality) is built from an imagined slowed down version of that which is one ( also called non-duality), so that the experience of this virtual world defined by time and space, that is layered on top of the formlessness of that which is one seems to cover it, seems to hide that there is no more than that which is one.

It is not done with any other purpose than the excitement of being and having more than that which is one. A bit like the excitement you get when AR (augmented reality) modifies the physical world and builds a layer on top of it, so a simulation of the physical world is mixed with the actual physical world.

This article is partly inspired by an article in Wired called Our Forward March Across the Reality-Virtuality Continuum, where you can read more about AR and VR. In the fashion of AR you might say, that this article is build on top of the article from Wired.

You probably experience, that you see two differently sized orange circles in this pic, because that is what the part of the brain, that measures perspective and scale, will tell you. Due to the blue circles it appear as they are not the same size. But you are wrong. Each orange circle is the same size. You are also wrong, if you think persons are different, and that they are in a world of duality. It is an illusion. Everything is sizeless.

At the time of writing this article, the most well-known example of AR (augmented reality) was probably Google glasses, where a digital simulation of the physical world is mixed with the actual physical world via eternally being connected to the internet. You can read about another kind of AR glasses, that changes how you appear to others, in my recent article What is unreal, is right in front of you.

Since then Pokémon Go, has maybe become the most well-known example of AR. It is, however, not only when playing Pokémon Go that many people are living in a kind of augmented reality. They look at their smartphone, where a layer of digital info is flowing on top of the physical world, while they hear music in one ear and listen to friends from the physical world with the other ear.

Bringing the imagination of god or some kind of a superworld into the reality of the physical world has been a longtime human fantasy. Imaginative fiction, transcendental meditation, aura-transformation and psychoactive drugs can be seen as early efforts to trick the mind into thinking, it is possible to blend a non-physical fantasy world with the physical world, where we appear to be. Soon VR (virtual reality) like it is envisioned by Oculus Rift – will be able to actually implement this.

That which is one is replaced by the belief in more

The first step away from the formlessness of that which is one to a world where there seems to be more than one can be compared to AR (augmented reality), which is a mix of real and unreal. The second step can be compared to VR (virtual reality), where reality totally is replaced by an illusion. Yet the illusion, that seems to replace reality, can only be experienced due to it.

In a virtual world everything is possible and that seems very exciting, even though it is all an illusion. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»This (virtual reality) is a state where you are totally transported into another world and immersed in the digital interactions of the virtual environment you’ve entered … the feeling that you are truly visiting another space that is wholly distinct from what you can see and hear without the platform … a platform like Oculus Rift is an alternative to reality, supplying entirely new, virtual experiences: true VR.« From Our Forward March Across the Reality-Virtuality Continuum in Wired.

Why choose to appear, as if you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one when that which is you is the formlessness of that which is one. Because it appears as if the endless possibilities of such a world is much more exciting than that which is one, where there is nothing to experience there, as that requires more than one.

The world of duality can only be experienced by contrasts – like black and white, space and empty space. The experienced contrast of inanimate and animate, you judge as proof for you to be alive.

In a world where there seems to be more than one there is so much to experience. Happiness for example. But it comes with a price, because such a world – contrary to that which is one – is built of contrasts so you cannot have happiness without sadness. This applies to every experience.

Nothing can be experienced without its contrast. You would not be able to know when it is dark, if not for knowing light.

Yet you may think, that it is possible to surpass this and live in just one state of mind, bliss for example, as there is vague memories of oneness. Yet it has been covered by the desire for more, which only can be experienced if the belief in separation is upheld, and that requires contrasts. You would not be able to know when it is dark, if not for knowing its contrast light.

All contrasts in the world are like two sides of a coin. This duality though can never replace the peace of that which is one, as there is no more than one. Consequently what is not one is not real – and only that which is real is peaceful.

So as long as you believe you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, the formlessness of that which is one is hidden by your belief in separation.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, it is always about being and having more the fastest and cheapest way. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

A world where there seems to be more than one does in no way function like the formlessness of that which is one, as it does not function at all, because it takes more than one to function.

A person always find ways to deny or change appearances in the world that is judged to be wrong, so that it appears to better. But no matter how happy being better may seem to make you, you cannot escape its contrast, sadness, because happiness cannot be experienced without it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But no matter how happy being better may seem to make you, its contrast, sadness, cannot be escaped, because happiness cannot be known without it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The world, where you believe to be was constructed by imagining, it is possible to be separate from that which is one and make something better on top of it. This is the not only how it started, but it is also how it goes on. None of the excitement, that a world where there seems to be more than one, appears to offer feels good enough.

There is always an urge to separate from what excites you and replace it with something better, which can hide the memories of the old one. The only thing, that seems constant in a world where there seems to be more than one is the fear of not being and having enough.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, it is always about getting more, the bigger the better, so the eyes always focus on contrasts, preferable the biggest ones, that in the case of reading this article is the contrast between black and white. This should not be understood though as you actually see this. Eyes do not see, they translate – or rather the brain translate the frequencies hitting the eyes.

In other words, the the world is a construction of thoughts – and when you believe thoughts are made by you, you as a person in the world is perceived to be real.

Alexius knows there is nothing to hope for because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to hope for something, so he has nothing to offer. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Enlightenment of that which is one undoes the belief in more

One who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one knows, that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, and that a world where there seems to be more than one, therefore, is not real. Everybody else – no matter how spiritual they appear to be – are solely having speculations about the existence of themselves in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The purpose of these speculations is not to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, because that erases the belief in existence, as it takes more than one to exist and there is no more than that which is one. Instead, it is the enhancement of the existence of themselves as something special in such a world.

Believing that a world where there seems to be more than one – including so-called spiritual parts – is real is to be compared to sitting in a cinema, where you project yourself onto the world, that seems to be on the screen, so that what is on the screen appears to have an effect on you, and therefore is experienced as to be real.

Enlightenment of that which is one can be compared to the movie roll suddenly breaks, so that there is nothing but bright white light on the screen. The world is no more, and it never was. It is an illusion fabricated by your interpretations of fragmented light.

This is the enlightenment, Alexius is to be compared to. It is not something that you see, because it is the enlightenment of that which is one, and it takes at least two for something to be seen.

When the movie roll is fixed and Alexius again appear to be in the world on the screen, the enlightenment of that which is one has not turned him into a wiser man or changed anything in the world. But he knows, that a world in a movie is not real and it can only be experienced, because of that which is real, as there is no more than that which is one.

The enlightenment of that which is one you can read about in hack #6.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

The animation is grabbed from the web.

If everything that you see is perceived to be symbols of that which cannot be seen, namely the formlessness of that which is one, though happiness and sadness apparently are not the same feeling, the difference does not make a difference, because they are both symbols of the same. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

To see symbols of that which is one in that which is not one

Even though you may have been told, that a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, your conditioned belief in such a world compulsively produces experiences of more than that which is one.

You can speed up the process of undoing this belief by not perceiving these experiences as real but symbols of that which is, namely the formlessness of that which is one – also called eternal now one perpetual present, oneness, non-duality, or the formlessness of spirit or life. This is what this hack, namely hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life,  is all about.

Pretending to be what is not one confirms that which is one

Pretending to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, is another way to speed up the process of not believing to be there, as what you pretend to be, you are not – so the more you pretend to be there instead of believing to be there the more the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, cannot hide that there is no more than that. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

That which is one cannot be known in a world where there seems to be more than one – neither anywhere else, as it takes more than one to know something. So rather than pointing to that which is one, Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings point out that there is no more than that which is one.

That which is one is one perpetual present

When you return to the formlessness of that which is one from a world where there seems to be more than one, everything is all the same, as if you have been there all the time, which you also have, because there is no more that which is one. Therefore the phrase ´when you return to non-duality´ should only be taken as a metaphor. In reality, you can never return, as you never left the formlessness of that which is one – only in an echo of a fantasy.


NOTES:

All fragments are symbols of that which is cannot be fragmented [draft]

If you see everything in the world not for what they appear to be but for what they symbolise, no doubt they will lead you to what they symbolise. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Ahead of the release of a new music album, one of its tracks used to be distributed as a single. This fragment of the album was seen as a symbol of the whole. Nowadays, streaming music services are about to change this. You do not have to buy a whole album but can get the tracks from it that you like add them together with fragments from other albums to create your own playlist.

The slow death of an album, as an experience of wholeness, is meant to illustrate, that most exclude what they do not like from their awareness, so they can manifest themselves as a particular individual separated from the whole which is in charge of itself. Very few want to be part of the whole because that requires them to include everything as it is, wherefore they are not manifested as unique, nor as someone in charge.

The desire to separate and exclude to become unique comes as no surprise since it is the foundation for the belief in being someone definitive. It is believed to be manifested through the achievement of characteristic things that belong to one individual only and by expressing personalised opinions about something that can enhance separation.

Before we go on, please note that the above does not that mean owning a house, for example, needs to be avoided. Everything depends on the purpose. And if that, in the context of hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life, is to see the experience of this ownership as a symbol of oneness, the result is not a manifestation of separation. Nor of a union. A symbol is a simulation, and therefore not real, so it does not manifest anything. Just like, within the context of the world, the word milk, which symbolise the real thing, cannot manifest it. Hence you do not fool yourself to experience something that is not there when you perceive the word milk to be a symbol.

Likewise, you are not deluded into believing you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one if the experience of that is perceived to be a symbol of that which makes it possible to experience it, namely that which is one as it is formless and therefore endless. Hence, there is nothing else to trigger the experience of something that is not there. However, since you do not know oneness and never will, as being aware of something requires more than one, it may seem more befitting to simply perceive your experience of being someone as a symbol of that which is real.

When the feelings are acknowledged and therefore can be perceived as symbols of that which makes it possible to experience something impossible, they do not seem to have an effect that establishes you as angry, for example. As that means you are not someone definitive, nobody seems to hide there never was or will be anything but that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In other words, seeing all experiences as symbols of that which is real, they are exposed to be make-believe. Hereafter there does not appear to be something to hide there never was or will be anything but that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. This does not mean you will realise oneness. That is not possible because it takes more than one to be aware of something. Fortunately, it also takes more than one to be someone, so what you believed in being is no more, wherefore there is nobody to realise that oneness is one perpetual present.

For the same reason, there is nothing to say about one perpetual present. But there is much to say about undoing the belief in being in a world where everything has a beginning and end and therefore seems to be separated from each other. So we return to that.

The more you take something out context and use it for personal purposes disconnected from the whole, the more you feel guilty and fear you will lose what you have grabbed at the expense of the whole. To hide the fear, you may take out even more of its content. Maybe you try to suppress negative thoughts through meditation, so you for a while, feel uplifted and alive from a theoretical state of being only positive. See Positive thinking is bullshit.

The conclusion of this is not that you would be better off looking for wholeness in the world. Oneness is not to be found in a world where everything is separated by time and space. Nevertheless, separation is a confirmation of the inseparable, namely oneness. It would not be possible to experience the illusion of separation without oneness, because there is no more than that since it is formless and therefore endless. In other words, as reality is oneness, the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one is not possible without that which is one. That is why everything experienced to be separated by something is a symbol of oneness.

If you, therefore, do not experience part 1 of this article to have a coherent finale, and that makes you irritable, you perceive your reaction as a symbol of oneness. Hence the missing conclusion does not seem to make a difference. Going on, seeing your response to something as a symbol of oneness, a world where there seems to be more than one, eventually, falls apart. Thus the belief in separation is undone.

In the context of the music story, you can say, that if you see everything in the world as different tracks symbolising a whole album, although not yet disclosed, you have a connection with the wholeness of that album through the symbols of it. Hence you, eventually, stop perceiving the individual tracks as separated from each other wherefore there do not appear to any gaps in the whole album called one perpetual present.

The evolution of IoT (Internet of things) via smartphones and tablets makes it easier and easier to connect people and their needs, so you share cars and rent out your home as a holiday home, while you rent somebody else´s for your vacation.

INTERLUDE
The above should not be seen as a crusade against streaming music. No matter in what way you listen to music or do other things in the world, it only seems possible due to the oneness of life, so whether you make your own stream or not and make your own playlist or not, it is a symbol of oneness. At times

A world where there seems to be more than one is about individuality. Thus it would be to go against its very nature if you do not do go for that. This also applies if you want to return to oneness, which is not about being together as that requires more than one.

Streaming music and other doings of Generation Y (born between 1980 and 2000) suits the personality of Alexius well. It does not appear to be about having to own things, but about having free access to them – like for example you have to his non-teachings, and he has to the source delivering the content.

You can read more in an article from Wired about how the digital generation expects integrated service offerings in the way IoT (Internet of things) works and are happy to trade personal data for access to the sharing economy.

What you can access from the smartphone is not in the phone. Nothing in the smartphone is real. Everything is symbols.

What you can access from the smartphone is not in the phone. Nothing in the smartphone is real. It is all symbols of something.

PART 2:
The reason capitalism has been easy to establish is straightforward. So far, it has been essential for a person to own something, preferably a lot and more than others. The same applies to the communistic way of living, although it is about owning things together – at least officially speaking.

This is a generalisation. There are, of course, exceptions, but not that many. Otherwise, society would not have been built on owning as much as possible for as little as possible at the expense of others. Read more about that here.

The older generation thinks that to buy and own is to commit, whether it is materialistic things or so-called spiritual states of mind. The most significant exception from this consumerism is found in generation Y (born 1980 – 2000), who generally speaking do not care to own but to have access – primarily via a smartphone.

Things and services you can access via a smartphone are not in it – just like a world where there seems to be more than one is not in the experiences we access of it via the brain. Within the context of the experiences of such a world, somebody has made the smartphone we use. But nobody knows who has made the humans that access experiences from their brain of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. The reason is simple. Humans have never been made. Reality is that which is one, and it takes more than one to create something.

The experience of being someone is, therefore, an illusion. No worries. There is no illusion without reality. So if you perceive your experiences as symbols of that which is one, you can have fun appearing to be someone with access to more than one, provided you do not try to own what you access.

The smartphone is a symbol of being connected and have access to everthing.

The smartphone is a symbol of being connected and having access to everything.

APPENDIX:
You have to own a smartphone or something similar to have access to the sharing economy and, for example, IoT. The smartphone is a symbol of having access, and that is a symbol of oneness because, without that, you could not have access to the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one.

Generation Y does not even care to own their thoughts, feelings and experiences. They share them all over the internet, and happily give away their private details in exchange for having access to the sharing economy, streaming music, movies and so on. If not being private at all seems natural to you, there is not someone to stop the enlightenment of that which is one.

It can in some ways be compared to the transporter beam in Star Trek, where a person is dematerialised and converted into energy, that is beamed to a target, where the person again is materialised. The enlightenment of that which is one, however, only dematerialise. Nothing is beamed to a new target and reconverted into matter. Thus there does not seem to be something to hide there never was or will be anything but the formlessness of oneness.

You can read more about the enlightenment of that which is one in HACK #6 The inward-facing senses, enlightenment and glimpses of it.
