Pretending to be someone is entertaining

Updated May 19, 2023

This is an image from a late evening on the island, where Alexius stays for part of the year. Everything there differs from his life in his native country, where he would have to wear a warm sweater on an evening this time of the year. However, doing that on an evening like in the picture would be plain stupid. That illustrates that when you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you forget about oneness to play the game of more than one. One way to do that is to pretend to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius’ native country is Denmark, but nowadays, he also spends time on a Spanish island close to Africa. So when he is there, he has to forget about the minimalistic ways of Denmark and instead convert to the more maximalistic way of Spain. He also has to adapt to a new language, change to another currency and many other things. Even though he seems to be good at it and having fun doing it, deep inside, he is Danish and feels far from home when spending time on the Spanish island.

That is a metaphor to illustrate that when you are in a world defined by time and space, the currency of spirituality is because it is formless. In a material world, you need tangible food, clothes and friends to survive.

You can, of course, choose not to do that and return to the formlessness of spirituality. But as long as you appear to be someone in a world defined by time and space, by all means, go for it. There is nothing to lose. That which is you is still the formlessness of spirituality and will always be, even though it seems to be inside a capsule of time and space for some time.

When the apparent difference between what you like and dislike does not make a difference, the belief in being someone definitive is being undone.

Besides, you do not need to return home. You have never left it. That is impossible because oneness is formless, thus endless, so there is no more than that which is One. Hence it is only the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One you need to undo.

If what and where you experiece to be is something you pretend, each moment is entertaining. Thus there is no need to dream about a better one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks do not fulfil your dreams of being special. On the contrary. They undo all your dreams about being someone. For example, by helping you to pretend being someone. Therefore, since what you pretend to be, you are not, there is nobody to dream about being someone specific.

Metaphorically, it is as if you, from oneness, stream a fictional video of more than one in which you pretend to be someone that is felt real due to artificial sensors. Then, when the fictional video is finished, you play it repeatedly until you are pleased with what you pretend to be. Then, you forget all about streaming and that there ever was a video. And there never was because the video and the world of duality it seems to reflect is make-believe.

Playing the video repeatedly, hoping it gets better, is as harmless as believing Santa Claus will bring you a present. So there is no reason not to enjoy the excitement while it lasts, especially when you grasp that it is a deception.

When that sets in, you are free to enjoy it as a magic show in which you respond with love and compassion, cry in desperation or whatever instinctively pops up at the moment, just like you instinctively react to a ball coming to you by returning it.

To conclude: As long as you appear to be someone in a world defined by time and space, give it your best shot. If you skip doing something, you keep playing the game of being someone in a capsule of time and space. It is over when everything seems enjoyable.
