Are you in my dream, or am I in yours?

Updated May 16, 2022

Are you in my dream, or am I in yours? Some think this is a brilliant question. But it is foolish because it implies there is somebody in a dream, and it is nothing but empty space, so there is nobody in it. The question, therefore, only makes sense if you want to establish what and where you believe in being is real and not an illusion created of nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

That a world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to a dream does not mean somebody is making or having such a dream, as it takes more than one to make or have something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless, thus endless. Hence questions like Are you in my dream or am I in yours? only makes sense for those who believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

In a dream, you may fancy ice cream, but you never get it because the ice cream you see is not there, nor are you. Thus being transformed and becoming part of something bigger is just another illusion in the dream. To claim the opposite is a trick that some use to make it seem like you will find something real in the illusion if you follow them.

Since there is no more than that which is one, and as it takes more than one to feel alone, there is no loneliness in oneness.

When you grasp that a world where there seems to be more than one is not real, you do not assume to get anything real from it – like you do not expect to get presents from Santa Claus when you are old enough to see he is not real.

Though a dream appears to be in the dreamer, who seems to be in it, the dream is not in the dreamer nor anywhere else. Nor is the dreamer in the dream but in its bed, which momentarily is excluded from the dreamer’s awareness so it can experience being someone in a world where nobody is in control since there is nothing in it.

A dream is an illusion that temporarily is layered on top of reality, which appears hidden as long as you experience the illusion is real.

They say all roads lead to Rome. But if so, they also show away from it. Therefore, are you on the way to oneness or away from it? Before you start to wonder, please read the below.

What you expect to see in Rome is shaped by where you come from. And so are your idea of that which is one are. As oneness is formless, thus endless, and as it takes more than one to have an idea, any notion of oneness is as illusionary as a dream.

But as there is no more than that which is one, only oneness can have this dream about a world where there seems to be more than one while, metaphorically speaking, laying in its bed. So despite the direction, you seem to be heading in the dream of a world where there seems to be more than one, that which is you is not going anywhere. It remains that which is one.

Though you appear to participate in a dream that seems to be inside you, this is not so. The dream is not in you, and you are not in the dream – nor is nobody else. It is only due to your interpretation that there seem to be different appearances separated from each other to varying distances to what and where you believe to be in the dream. So if you refrain from interpreting it, there does not appear to be something where there is nothing. The same applies when you are awake.

There is no help to get in a dream, and it is not needed, because it is not real.

You say my body, which indicates the body is not you. It is something you believe you have. So who is it that has the body? This question has been asked for ages – and nobody has come up with an answer. It is like asking who is doing or having something in a dream. There is no one in it, so there is no answer nor help to get.

That said, as long as you seem to be in the dream called the world of duality, you better take part in it – otherwise, you will not be there at the moment of awakening. But you also better take part without being of it – otherwise, you will try to remain in the dream in the moment of awakening. Fortunately, this is easily accomplished when you pretend to participate because what you pretend to do is not real. See HACK #1, Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

Those who believe the world is real have not been able to find proof of its existence – neither through science nor anything else. Yet, they demand factual arguments for the statement in Alexius’ Duality Hacks that the world is unreal. But it cannot be proved because the world would be real if it could.

The world is to be compared to a dream which cannot be proved real, as any proof is another part of the unreality of the dream.

No matter what and where you appear in a dream, there is no reason to change or stop it because you are not there but in your bed. Likewise, there is no reason to change or transform anything in a world where there seems to be more than one. You are not there, nor anywhere else, because it takes more than one to be somewhere, and there is no more than oneness since it is formless, thus endless. Hence Alexius’ Duality Hacks are neither about realising oneness nor returning to it but enjoying the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one while having it undone.

There are no dimensions, as oneness is formless, thus endless. In other words, seeing something, you must be dreaming. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is only room for one in that which is real. Therefore, since oneness is formless, thus endless, there is nothing for that which is One to see. Thus everything experienced is to be compared to a dream.

A dream is made from nothing and not orchestrated by someone definitive. So is what you believe to be, because there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless, and it takes more than one to orchestrate something.

Dreams are perhaps closer to the formlessness of oneness than the wakeful state of a world where there seems to be more than one since they cannot be controlled or organised into something considered coherent and meaningful.

And contrary to a world where there seems to be more than one, everyone is close together in the dreamer – just like everything is so close together in oneness that there is no more than that which is one.

The experience of being someone definitive amongst others in a world where there seems to be more than one is like having a dream where you appear to be together with others. However, it is not an experience you share with anybody but yourself (see also hack #7 Alone together is the key to that which is one).
