All experiences are equally unreal

Updated May 17, 2022

The experience of seeing this pic is as all other experiences – including so-called spiritual ones – fabricated in the brain. Nothing real is fabricated, but that which is real can be used to imagine a fabricated reality. Though that which is real is not in the simulation, the reason the simulation seems to be there is that which is real. Therefore everything in the simulated world of duality can be seen as symbols of that which is real.

The experience of this image is like any other experiences – including those considered spiritual – fabricated by the brain. It simulates a tangible world where there seems to be more than one to hide that there is no more than that which is one. However, this sham symbolises that which is one as it is formless, thus endless, so there is nothing else to pull a hoax. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Experiences of god and other spiritual concepts are fabrications manufactured by the brain. Like mundane experiences, they can be measured physically. The idea of you being someone definitive in a body governed by a self is also fabricated by the brain, which is nothing more than a labyrinth of fat and synapses that pass electrical signals from cell to cell. In other words, whether you perceive your experiences to be ordinary or spiritual, they are fabricated by electrical impulses in the brain (read more about that here).

»When you dig into molecules, and the states of ion channels, enzymes, transcription programs, cells, synapses, and whole networks of neurons, you come to realise that there is no one place in the brain where memories are stored,« says Kukushkin. This is because of a property called plasticity, the feature of neurons that memorize. The memory is the system itself. From an article in Wired.

THE AFTERIMAGE
Everything you think and do was set in motion millions of years ago. It could be predicted then because, in non-linear time, the world’s birth and death appear simultaneously. Therefore, since the whole story of the universe starts and ends at the same moment, the world is no more.

You hang onto remaining data or fragments from an afterimage of the universe. Actually, what you believe in being is nothing but disintegrated pieces of honeycombed memories. To make sense of this separation, you try to fill the gaps with fragments of love, god and other lofty ideas.

Hanging onto after images is like hanging onto the fragments of a dream, or memories of a dead spouse. You can compared this to having an app, that has collected everything your beloved ever has said on social media, so you can use it in an internal dialogue with her as to feel she is alive.

She answers you in the way you are accustomed to and use info from, for example, Wikipedia, so the chat does not seem dated. Maybe the app also is able to collect all her telephone conversations and put fragments of it together in such a way, that it seems as if you are having a real conversation with a live person – though that person has no mouth and is nothing but data collected from the Cloud.

She may even be reconstructed as a robot implemented with artificial intelligence and texture-mapped skin constructed simolar to the best looking photos from the past. Thus you can relive your finest memories of being together. Maybe spiced up with with kinky sex based on pornographic videos from the internet.

Once in a while, when the robot fails to act out your memories, you may freak out and suspect something is wrong. Nevertheless, you go because even if it is not real, what you get feels better than reality.

WHAT IS SEEN AS REAL IS IMAGINED BECAUSE REALITY CANNOT BE SEEN
A single part of the brain processes perceived reality in the present moment and through memories plus imagined states, symbols and metaphors. Thus, to the brain, there is no difference between what is perceived as real and what is considered imaginary, metaphors, spiritual and whatnot.

It is not that this info is stored anywhere in the brain, as you can read in the article Wired mentioned above. Hence the brain is this info, and as the world is in the eye of the beholder, so is the world and the person you appear to be there.

In other words, everything experienced is make-believe, and that is why you cannot know reality, find the truth or realise that which is you. But by pretending to be someone definitive ‘there’, you can discover what you are not. Thus, recognising that, you know, that you do not know what and where you are, which is the invitation the Enlightenment of that which is One* has been waiting for.

Just like all appearances in a dream are illusions symbolising the world the dreamer lives in, everything in the world are illusions symbolising that which is real, namely that which is you.

Until then, enjoy pretending to be someone definitive that seems to have spiritual experiences of inner peace or feel excitement by watching a football match. It does not matter what person you appear to be when you know it is not you, but a symbol of that which is you.

You cannot do anything wrong when perceiving everything as a symbol of oneness because doing something wrong is also a symbol of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

WHATEVER YOU DO IS FINE
That your appearance does not matter is what makes seeing everything in the world as a symbol of that which is you so beautiful. No matter what you do, think, or feel, it is not real but a symbol of that. You do not have to believe in anything specific. Still, if you like to believe in Alexius’ Duality Hacks or something else, it is not a problem because it symbolises oneness, no matter what you think.

You do not have to like Alexius’ Duality Hacks, you do not have to like it all. What you do not like is also a symbol of that which is you.

There are no steps or philosophies that you must follow to come back to that which you as a person in the world symbolise, namely that which is you. Therefore, whatever you seem to think, feel or do as a person in a world where there seems to be more than one is fine because everything is a symbol of that which is you, and that is no different from that which is One.

This is one of the many dying stars in the universe. It is only a matter of time before everything in the universe collapses. When that occurs time is over. Hence the universe never existed. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»After a short, productive explosion of early activity, the universe has begun its long mope towards oblivion. To the extent that anything was ever important, it won’t be. Time, space, energy, matter – all gone … That’s right: Everything you know and love, the entire universe of possible things, will be gone.« from the article The End of the Universe published in Wired.

AN ILLUSION IS A POSITIVE CONFIRMATION OF REALITY
Although the suggestions for new music coming from, for example, Spotify or Apple Music, seem to suit your taste in music, they are not made by you or someone who knows you. Likewise, the thoughts coming to you suggesting this and that are not made by you, nor by someone who knows you.

All problems are gone, when you do not know what and where you are, as that means there is nobody to confirm separation, which is the cause of all suffering.

There is no you. Just like what you appear to be to the bots from Spotify and Apple Music is made up of algorithms, what you believe to be in a world defined by time and space is made up of memories. That includes wherever you appear to be and the one appearing to believe this. Without memories, there does not appear to be something, where there is nothing but the formlessness of that which is One.

And as formlessness is endless, a world defined by time and space cannot be experienced without it. Hence all the memories compiling the fantasy of being someone definitive in a world limited by time and space confirm the formlessness of that which is One – especially when choosing to see everything memorised as symbols of that which cannot be learned since it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to remember anything.

NOTES:

  • An episode of Black Mirror called Be Right Back inspired the quote box, and the concept of ‘hanging onto some remaining data or fragments’ is inspired by the movie Source Code. The scientific info about the brain, Alexius has found here and there, so all in all, the article is the usual mismatch the brain likes to combine to make an illusion that feels entertaining. However, the experience of this specific illusion can be beneficial in seeing that all experiences, whether they appear mundane or spiritual, are make-believe.
