Eyes do not see

Our eyes cannot see anything. The tangible world we believe in seeing is a construction of thoughts compounded by the brain based on the light it claims to pass through our eyes. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Even though the digital photos in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings seem different and tell their own story, they are the same because they all consist of zeros and ones. They do not seem to differ before an app translates their specific mix of zeros and ones into separate images reminiscent of how we expect to see the world. That makes us forget that what we see is a combination of zeros and ones that we cannot see as something before an app processes it.

That applies not only to digital images but anything appearing to differ from something else, whether it seems inanimate or animate, spiritual or physical, mental or emotional and whatnot. In the world where we believe in being, the brain is the app that renders empty space into something.

»Your eye is like a camera … Photons pass through your lens, which focuses them onto a spot at the back of your retina. There, specialised photoreceptive structures called rods and cones convert these photons into electromagnetic impulses that your brain interprets as shapes, colours, and textures.« From an article in Wired.

The human eyes can be compared to a digital camera, which, contrary to an analogue camera, does not produce images on film. Instead, the digital camera records the RAW data of light coming through the lens when the shutter button is pressed.

But this data cannot be seen as an image on the camera’s screen until a built-in app converts it into contrasts defining a world defined by time and space. Technically speaking, this is often done by rendering RAW data into a JPEG file.

If the raw data received by the eyes or any other sense is not translated by the brain into something perceivable, there does not appear to be someone experiencing anything.

Likewise, there is nowhere in our heads where the light recorded by the eyes is processed into an image as in an analogue camera. The data, or frequencies of light, captured by three taps in the eyes, recording red, green and blue frequencies, can only be seen when the brain has translated the data into an image reminiscent of the well-known world.

Since it takes time for the brain to process the information it gets from the eyes at a specific moment, it sorts the received information into categories and only uses those it needs to construct the image you expect to see. The time delay in processing, it extrapolates so it does not seem to interfere with what you perceive to happen now.

Facebook can now automatically write captions on images, that can be read by blind people, so their brain can use this info to construct an image inside of them as if they actually see the image on Facebook. The graphic is grabbed from an article in Wired.As it always takes the brain about one second to accomplish this, our conscious experience of the present is a construction of thoughts about what happened one second ago. In other words, what you believe in seeing now is a thought-up image of the past.

It is similar to how artificial intelligence (AI) automatically generates an audio caption on a photo for blind people on Facebook so they can fabricate an image of a pizza, for example, themselves. The picture to the left illustrates this and is grabbed from an article in Wired about AI.

However, blind people will not know if artificial intelligence always gets it right. Nor will they or the ‘seeing’ ones understand that the brain never gets it right when it produces experiences of a world where there seems to be more than one because there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless.

Therefore, ultimately speaking, what you believe in being does not exist, thus not reading this, because it takes more than one to be someone. But neither do you read it in the context of the world where you believe in being someone. Everything on your screen consists of zeros and ones added together in entirely meaningless ways. You only experience this chaos as an article because your electronic device has translated the specific combination of zeros and ones into wavelengths of light, reaching your eyes in ways the brain translates into English words.

It is easy for the brain to fool you into beliving that it renders your tangible experiences from the raw data entering your eyes. because if not believing this, you are nothing.

However, reading these words in a country where the internet is censored, some of them may have been changed or left out. And if not, you most definitely exclude some yourself, so you can twist Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings into how you see the world. See also, The closer you look, the less you believe what you see is real.

Therefore, the article you think you read is not what Alexius wrote. What you believe in reading is based on how you perceive the brain’s translation of the article your browser has rendered from HTML, which is one of the languages used to convert the mess of zeros and ones into something that appears to make sense when you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Read more about that here.

In other words, what you believe in reading is fabricated by your brain. Just like when you have vertigo, the world is not spinning around you – it only happens in your head. That applies to all experiences. For example, whether you feel loved or rejected, spiritual or mundane, is the same because the feelings are not caused by anything other than electrical impulses in your head. See, All experiences are equally unreal.

You can compare the experience of living in a world where there seems to be more than one to using a flight simulator. Although you feel like flying, it is an illusion.

Neither humans nor self-driving cars actually see the world where they appear to be, but what their master, the brain or the internet, decides for them to see. But as you can ‘see’ in this image of how a self-driving car perceives the world, it is entirely different from what you believe to see. The graphic is grabbed from Wired.

However, according to the brain, the electrical impulses are caused by your sensory system’s information, like a self-driving car moves per its sensors. But as you know, the info from its sensors is made remotely by the internet. Likewise, the information the brain claims to receive from your sensory system is produced by itself. In other words, you are a fantasy of the brain. The brain hides this by explaining it renders your experiences based on the info it gets from your sensory system, which you choose to believe to avoid being exposed as nothing.

Believing to see something can be compared to how the artificial intelligence (AI) that Facebook and Google use to sort photos is programmed to recognise your pictures. Even though all data in electronic media consists of zeros and ones, artificial intelligence is programmed to experience particular combinations of them as substantial entities. And the more it ‘sees’ the entities it has learned to define as human beings, the more it detects particular facial expressions as unique emotions. Therefore, since it experiences to ‘feel’ what it ‘sees’, it relates to the persons in the photos as it is one of them.

However, since artificial intelligence does not exist as somebody, nobody relates to anybody. It is just layer upon layer of algorithms that collects data and put them together in the same way as the human brain compiles thoughts to make it appear as if you are someone substantial in a tangible world, although it is a fantasy made from nothing.

When a smartphone recognises your face, it does not mean that it sees you. In the case of Apple, for example, it registers the electrical impulses from a grid of 30,000 invisible dots which has been projected onto your face to create a 3-D map of your facial topography. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The brain uses the same organ to fabricate all experiences. So if you divide them into imaginative or real you are mistaken. They are all a fantasy of the brain.

In other words, the experience of a world defined by time and space is a construction of thoughts made by nobody from nothing – or as science states, the world consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space and the rest, which we perceive as elements of matter making up a tangible world, is also blank.

»The app helps people who are blind or losing their sight to ´feel´ smiles. The app uses facial recognition to find a face and then vibrates in the user’s hand to let them know that the person they’re talking with is smiling.« From an article in Wired.

The person you believe in being is blind, deaf and numb. What you experience to see, hear and feel, regardless it appears spiritual or mundane, is nothing but electrical impulses. They do not mean anything unless the brain manipulates them into something you interpret as meaningful, such as a smile.

The brain is like an app in a wearable device for blind people. It uses facial recognition to find a face and when the algorithm suggest it smiles, it lets the blind one know it sees a smiling face. Hence the blind person has an experience of ‘seeing´ and/or ‘feeling´a smiling face.

Most insist that this construction of thoughts is set in motion by something. Religions claim god did it. Many stand firm on the belief that higher consciousness is behind it, and you find it through meditation, for example. But since reality is that which is One, and it takes more than one to find something, only that which is not real can be found.

Ultimately, the above is just another construction of thoughts, as illusionary as anyone else. However, this illusion does not claim to reveal reality but to expose what hides it, namely the belief in seeing something. Truth cannot be seen because it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to be aware of something.


  • The above about eyes applies to all the senses. So, for example, if you are tone-deaf, it is not due to a problem in the ear but the brain, which cannot find the correct equation in the music.
  • Alexius is more abstract than technically minded, so some of the above technological explanations may be incomplete. Anyhow, they are not meant to prove anything but to illustrate that the experience of something is a fantasy of the brain made from nothing.
  • The article is part of hack #1.1 What and where you appear to be is make-believe.

There is more about being fooled by the brain into believing that there is something in empty space in the below articles.
