The closer you look, the less you believe what you see is real

Updated May 17, 2022


You think you have chosen to see what you look at now, but it is something the brain has used a second to piece together into what it wants you to think you see now. To hide this is a fantasy made by the brain, it makes a story that seems to prove it has rendered what you believe to see based on the light hitting your eyes. But the only proof of that is that the brain says so. Read more about that herePhoto © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius has not invented the headline. It is a rewrite of a movie title. Nor is the rest of the article thought up by him. He cannot think. Thoughts are passing by like frequencies are passing by a radio, which picks up and transmits those it is tuned into. In this article, Alexius is tuned into the following:

They meditate, chant, drink, take drugs or do something else to alter their perception of the present moment so they can avoid being in touch with the feelings it seems to bring about. But every time they do something to get rid of an emotion, sadness, for example, on a psychological level, they enhance the sense of not being happy. In other words, what you consider to be wrong in yourself or the world increases, the more you try to avoid or correct it. For example:

  • Trying to purify yourself, you enhance feeling damned.
  • By pursuing freedom, you strengthen feeling imprisoned.
  • Eating to get healthy, your feeling of being wrong is fed.
  • Looking for Enlightenment, darkness is tightened.
  • Trying to unite, separation is enhanced.
  • Searching for love, your self-hatred is ratified.
  • Seeking god, you feel more sinful.
  • Meditating to be at peace, your frustrations increase.
  • Searching for a higher self, you confirm you are unworthy.
  • Wanting to be perfect, imperfection is confirmed.

You think you are reading this broadcast now. But you are reading an edited version of what you viewed one second ago because the brain has spent one second filtering and interpreting it so that you seem to read something coherent with the experiences it has made for you in the past.

If reading makes you want to know what this article really says and you decide to see the unfiltered and authentic version of it, you are still caught in the brain game, namely that what you do and say makes a difference. It is like thinking that you can make a difference in a computer game world. It is not possible. Everything is fixed. Yet, you are free to change your perception of it.

So if the way the brain filters your experience is interpreted as imperfect, you do not try to alter it but perceive your response as ‘it is what it is.’ This reveals your one-way reaction is twofold. Therefore, since your experience is as perfect as imperfect, you feel complete. Hence there is nothing wrong to escape.

Believing that what and where you appear to be is real, you may consider this cheating. But when you know that every experience is an illusion fabricated by the brain, having them is like watching a magician’s show. You do not want to break the magic spell by looking for authenticity because you want to be entertained by the show. In the case of a world of duality, you feel amused when you accept it is about twofoldness. Read more about that in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.


The world of duality is an illusion that can be compared to a sandcastle on the beach. Everything is fine when you do not believe your sandcastle is real. But, if you do that, there is a mistake to correct, which you do by acknowledging you do not know what and where you are! Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The so-called fact that the brain bases the experiences it produces for us on info received from our sensory system is part of the story it composes to make us believe we are somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one. The brain has another story for those who see through this: Although any experience is made from nothing, higher consciousness is behind it, and it is aware of what is going on.

The brain is proud of this story because to be conscious of something, there must be more than one. And for the brain, it is all about hiding, there is no more than that which is One. Also, that consciousness is just another deception of the brain, meant to confirm itself and its creations as real.

This explanation is, of course, a load of guff because it takes more than one to explain something, and there is no more than oneness as it is formless, thus endless. However, since you are treading this, you believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Thus we go on with more foolish explanations that may expose the foolishness of your belief.


People talking about coming from the heart or feeling love are actually talking about a semi-euphoric, temporary chemical reaction that the brain, which is nothing but a labyrinth of fat and synapses passing electrical signals from cell to cell, has processed into this experience.

In other words, feelings are measurable electric impulses and nothing more. Since this also applies to the experience of higher consciousness, it is in no way more magic than any other experience – unless you choose to perceive that.


My cat appears to enjoy the moments of writing my non teachings.

In the dark of the night, it seems Alexius catches a glimpse of one of his cats. He decides it must be the black cat, who can be a bit of a bully. But then its movement reminds him of another cat of his cats that is especially dear to him. And so, he changes the interpretation of what he ‘sees’ in the dark. That is how we ‘see’ the world. It is a construction of thoughts. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When Alexius, many years ago, organised his first computer and put files in folders, he thought he would never run out of space. He also imagined the computer arranged his files in the order he had forme.

Nowadays, he knows better. There is no hierarchy among the files on the computer. None of them is on the top or buried deep under others. It is make-believe because there are no levels on the hard disk. It is flat, and all the files and folders are non-dimensional. They are not there as files and folders.

It is all code, and the code for one file might be spread all over the hard disk. Whatever Alexius experiences on his screen are nothing but zeros and ones added together in an order that makes it possible for his brain to simulate the world he wants to see. The same applies to whatever we see, except it is not made from zeros and ones but nothing.


Nor science, religion or anything else has been able to explain the universe’s existence because it does not exist.


Life is everything alive. This is why it does not contain anything that ends, and what you believe in being, therefore, is not of life but nothing. Fortunately, Alexius’ Duality Hacks uncovers that, so nothing does not seem to be something hiding, there never was or will be anything but life since it is formless, thus endless.

A world of duality has indeed been explored by non-duality. It started with a big bang from where time was projected forward linearly. However, there was no going back to the same in a world of duality. For example, if ice cubes melt in water, they cannot be extracted from it and made into the same cubes again. And the light radiating from a bulb or the sun only goes forward. It never returns.

But in non-duality, it is impossible to go forward without going backwards simultaneously. It has to be one movement to remain one perpetual present, thus securing that nothing is lost. Therefore, duality was seen as unreal and discarded at the exact moment it moved forward without going backwards. However, parts of non-duality were very excited by the concept of linear time as that gave them something to hope for. Thus they decided to continue the cancelled adventure of duality.

They did that by making a fansite where followers could participate in ongoing stories of duality – just like, in the context of the world, a fan site of a cancelled TV show fabricates follow-up stories that supporters participate in and discuss. If they think the stories are real, linear time seems dangerous. But if you know everything happens simultaneously (see What time is!?), it is fun pretending to be in a world with past and future because where you pretend to be, you are not. Hence linear time is not scary (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation).

Of course, this article is not factual. It is part of duality, which is fantasy, thus the reason people like stories. However, not this one because it exposes they are nothing.

That said, non-duality does not consist of parts that differ from each other. Therefore, since nobody can investigate duality or go on fantasising about it, the above is a metaphor. But in its context, duality was deemed unreal the moment it was perceived, thus instantly aborted. However, afterimages of this moment repeatedly played in an interactive movie in cyberspace seem to extend the cancelled show of duality.


There´s no pink flower in this pic. The color pink does not exist within the reality of the world, so if you see pink, you have constructed the color yourself.

Without flaws, the universe’s structure would be perfect, thus not appearing to be manifested as something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

All colours in a light beam, except lime green, have a complementary colour, so if you believe to see pink, which theoretically speaking is the complementary colour of lime green, you are mistaken. Pink does not exist. That is why Wikipedia calls it an extra-spectral colour. Follow this link if you want more info about pink, also called fuchsia and magenta.

The reason you believe to see the colour pink, although it is not there, is that every time you, theoretically speaking, should see it as a complementary colour to lime green, you mix blue and red to create pink internally to fill the gap in the spectrum of a light beam.

However, according to science, if not for gaps, a world where there seems to be more than one would not appear there. A perceived gap in the pattern created by the particles from the big bang made it possible for the inconsistent structure to unfold as a world with gaps between everything. In other words, if a crack had not been perceived in the way the particles from the big bang gathered together, there would have been no imperfection to trigger the fantasy of separation.

The world is designed as a puzzle, where you are rewarded when you get the pieces right. But the puzzle is incomplete. A piece is missing. No problem, if you perceive your reaction to the gap as ‘it is what it is,‘ it is revealed to be paired withits counterfpart. Thus you feel complete. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.


What you think you see is precisely that. It is an image fabricated by the brain, which has many scripts to automatically manipulate the rays of light reaching the eyes into a picture of the world that looks like you expect it. For example, you do not wish to see the world upside down, so the brain always corrects that. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Once upon a time, a king had fun having people beheaded in the blind spot we all have when looking at something from a specific angle. It is not a gap that we notice because we are conditioned to fill it with something from our memory. Thus the king kept seeing the decapitated ones with their heads until he changed his viewing angle and saw them beheaded, which he found very amusing.

It is not only a gap like the above, we are conditioned to fill it with something familiar. For example, what you think you see on your digital media now hides that your screen is empty unless zeros and ones are manipulated to appear as if there is something there.

The same applies to the rest of the world you believe to see. It is as virtual as this page, and so is the brain that seems to help you fill it with something that appears real.

There are probably many gaps in this article that automatically have been filled with something to m ke you feel at ease.
