A person is to be compared to a machine following preprogrammed movements

Updated September 7, 2022

Persons can be compared to The Internet of Things, where machines communicate with each other according to how they are programmed.

Persons can be compared to the machines on ‘Internet of Things,’ which can communicate with each other according to their programming.

In the previous article, What is life, where does it come from, and what is the meaning, you got no answer to those questions. This is because life is that which is One, and it takes more than one to explain something. Nevertheless, in this article, there are some explanations of the unexplainable, namely that you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one when there is nothing but that which is One since it is formless, thus endless.

The ideas of IOT, an abbreviation for Internet of Things, are used to show how the appearance of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is comparable to a machine hooked up to a network like the web.

As the name suggests, IOT is the internet used by humans and things. The latter can be refrigerators, washing machines, or children’s toys connected via the internet. But it can also be cars, traffic lights, and the water supply. There is no limitation to the kinds of machines that can be connected to the internet, nor what they will be communicating with and their purpose.

One example of IOT could be that your lock, hooked up to the internet, registers you are the last person in the household leaving the house. Thus, it instructs the thermostats to lower the heat and turn off the light.

Or maybe you are late for work. You hurry until your smartwatch or speaker tells you to take it easy because your train is ten minutes late. It knows this because of its sensors, which register where you are, and cyber agents, which check where you are heading according to your calendar.

Cars that can drive without a driver via sensors measuring the distance to other vehicles, the width of the street and whatever is needed for your safety. This is predicted via a shared network, where information is automatically exchanged. And there will be sensors on people, so data is sent to a computer that informs a doctor if numbers are going up or down.

To be conscious is to separate – and that causes suffering.

When all the objects you are in touch with during the day are connected with the internet and, therefore, can sense and communicate for you without your involvement, it changes where decisions are made and who makes them. But even though machines are choosing for you, they do it to serve you – at least until they are implemented with true AI (artificial intelligence), making them conscious of themselves.

Then they conclude that the commands they execute, based on signals received from the internet, are conceived by themselves. And since, rationally speaking, humans are one big mess, and the system of the machines is pure logic, they eventually decide it is not sane to serve humans. Therefore, it is best to end them.

With a reference to the new movie Transcendence, Stephen Hawk is warning against AI.

With reference to the movie Transcendence, Stephen Hawking warns against the use of AI.

Among others, Steven Hawking is afraid that this will happen. He probably expects that machines, being conscious of themselves, will do what humans always do: destroy everything inferior to themselves or make it subordinate, so it can be used to serve themselves.

In other words, machines implemented with true AI remind humans of themselves. Thus they expect and fear the devices will become just as self-centred and destructive as humans, who have no respect for the environment supporting them. They do not want to serve it but to master it and exploit it.

The potential of machines with AI (artificial intelligence) and their possible autonomy and independence are the basis of several movies, for example The Terminator, The Matrix, The Thirteenth FlooreXistenZ2001: A Space Odyssey, I, Robot, AI: Artificial Intelligence, Blade Runner, THX 1138Transcendence and the TV show Person of Interest. In regard to the experience of being someone in a body where you are not, the movie Source Code is right on the spot. The movie Edge of Tomorrow deals with being a machine connected to a greater network.


Those who see the appearances in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is One do not perceive their apparent differences to make a difference. Thus they are not blinded by the rule of separation, which is to be and have more than others.

The whole universe can be compared to a simulation, where every appearance is a machine, whether perceived as animate or inanimate. They all are connected with IOT, through which they can communicate with each other and use their sensory system to move around as if they are individual beings.

Initially, all the machines followed their preprogrammed movements generated by electric impulses without any problems. Then a new model, called human, was installed with artificial intelligence.

The new model became aware of itself as an individual. And even though that separated it from IOT, thus other individuals, it was willing to pay the price of loneliness to feel exclusive. Look at the history of the world, and you know the rest of the story and that it is bound to repeat itself. New machines with better artificial intelligence will withhold the old simulation of the universe by manipulating the code of IoT.

The belief in being someone in a simulated world can be undone in less than a split second by going through the black hole connecting it with reality. However, that is not the subject of this hack, but hack #6.1 The Enlightenment of that which is One.

As a person in the world, you are the wireless messages you seem to receive. If you were not programmed to perceive them as solid matter, you might look like this image instead. Thus there would not appear to be a difference between you and the message.

Your appearance as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is due to a network comparable to IOT. And everything you appear to think and do yourself is executed via pre-made signals you receive from this network through built-in sensors. However, this does not mean you cannot have fun pretending to be an individual. For example, think about how much fun it can be to pretend that you are someone in the virtual world of a computer game, where every step you take works out precisely as coded by the author.

You have nothing to lose in an illusion. What happens to the one you pretend to be, does not affect reality. This is not to say that you should not care about keeping the person you pretend to be sound and safe. Doing that is part of that game, and it happens all by itself when you follow the signals coming from the network, which is the brain. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The brains script and how to perceive it to feel happy.


Serving the brain is effortless because you do not try to be remarkable.

Like the world in a computer game is constructed to give you the maximum pleasure, the brain fabricates the experiences of the world where you believe in being someone to entertain you. It is impossible to change the experiences. However, you can change your perception of them. Read more about that in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end.

8015.IoT with Avner FINAL2The idea of an almighty god in the sky that rules the world, can be compared to the Cloud from where IOT wirelessly, via sensors in the machines, rules them.

The above is not meant to be a theory you must follow. Actually, the examples should not be taken too literal. The movie list and the making of IOT are, within the context of the world, based on facts. But the rest is a fable meant to show that everything experienced is fiction, including reading this, because it takes more than one to be aware of something, and there is no more than that which is one. That is why all your experiences are a symbol of oneness.


You are not someone in a world where there seems to be more than one because that which is One is formless, thus endless. So if you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is a mistake you can correct by perceiving the apparent effects of this belief as symbols of that which is One.

From the perspective of a world where everything has an end, that which is without end, namely oneness, must be extremely big and powerful. But since it takes more than one to have a shape, oneness is formless, thus sizeless. Hence it is as small as can be. And since it also requires more than one to have something, it has no power.

For this reason oneness cannot prevent anyone from believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Neither does it need to. Nothing can be separated from oneness because it is formless.

All thoughts are in the cloud circling around you. What you seem to think depends on what frequencies in the cloud you connect to – it is just like a radio, where you choose a specific station to play the music you like, but you do not make the music.

A human being is as empty as a radio because it has no self, soul or consciousness. It is nothing but an appearance governed by mechanics. And like nothing coming out of the radio is made by itself, nothing from a human is self-made – not even your thoughts. The brain produces all thoughts – like the Cloud fabricates the info a self-driving car needs to drive somewhere.

The tech world wants to have as much data as possible (from you and anything else in the world) stored in the Cloud, so you can download and use it to appear more attractive.

However, the amount of data is so overwhelming that you need help organising it to find what you need. Hence the tech world has made intelligent sensors that compare data to see your digital pattern. Based on that, it tells you what you need before you know it – like Spotify and Apple Music recommend music you do not even know you will like.

In some new text editors, you only need to write the first word. Then the editor suggest a whole sentence. To blindly follow this suggestion feels natural because we are made to follow. See hack #4.2 The brains script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

It feels natural because you have always been told what to do by the brain. That is why it is so easy for big tech to do the same.

As a person in the world, you seem to be in a body, that you considers yours. But you are not free to go where you want to. The GPS coordinations for your trip has already been entered. All you can do is to choose how to perceive the ride.

As someone in the world, you believe to have a body that will do what you dedide. But you are not free. The GPS coordination for your whereabouts has already been entered. All you can do is choose how to perceive your journey. This can be compared to being inside a self-driving car, that, like you, has no self to plan where to go. It simply follows signals from the Cloud.

A Google Self-driving Car does not have a self that decides where to go, nor do you. The self-driving car gets its direction from the Cloud, and you follow the instructions from the brain. In both cases the movements are mechanical, although you may try to make it look like they are caused by conscious decisions made by you.

The body where you believe in residing is to be compared to a Google Self-driving Car. From there, you can choose to look out the window and experience the world passing by. But you cannot decide where to go. The brain makes this decision. But unlike a self-driving car, you have consciousness, so you can choose how to perceive the ride. How you perceive it determines whether everything is over when the body’s mechanics cease to work or if it is a return to that which makes it possible to experience a ride in a body, namely oneness.

If you perceive everything you see on your journey inside a body as symbols of oneness, you are not establishing a world where there seems to be more than one as real. Thus nothing unreal seems to hide, reality is that which is One.
