Life is flat

Oneness can be compared to the single triangle in the above animation. There is only this one, and it is flat. However, it seems to become a 3D world when multiplied and added together in numerous ways. Animation by António Miguel de Campos/Wikimedia.

In this article, you can read about the flatness of non-duality and how a world of duality is a simulated reality layered on top of non-duality fabricated from selected fragments of non-duality, so it appears to be hidden by a dimensional world.

However, non-duality is that which is One. Hence there are no fragments, nor someone to arrange them into a dimensional world since that requires more than one. In other words, non-duality is an illusion that nobody has made.

This article is actually a layer on top of code of HTML etc, that has no pics – only words, that are sent to your browser commanding it to fabricate an appearance of this article. But that code is also a layer. It sits on top of the basic computer code. Nothing, that seems to appear via the computer, is real.

The article you read is layered on top of computer code that you can see a part of in this screen dump. There are no photos to see in it – only words, which are sent to your browser to instruct it to fabricate the appearance of this article illustrated by photographs. That code, however, is also a layer. It sits on top of the basic encoding of your electronic media. In other words, everything that seems to appear on the screen of electronic media is a simulation – just like everything in a world of duality is a simulation.

Within the context of this illusion, what you seem to read on electronic media, is a layer an app has fabricated from the programming code underneath the article that most humans would not understand. The whole internet is a layer on top of programming languages like HTML and JAVA. If not transformed by your web browser, you would not know how to see the layer that looks like this article.

This digital photo does not have the look that you expect a digital raw converter to produce. You also anticipate the world to be in colours. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A digital photo is layered on top of raw digital info that no human would perceive as a photo. If not transformed by a raw data converter into – in the case of the internet – a JPEG or PNG image.

This shows that the principle of duality is to fabricate something definite layered on something indefinite. However, you will not get to non-duality by peeling off layers. Although they are an illusion, they can only be experienced due to reality, which is non-duality since it is formless, thus endless.

In other words, please do not close your eyes to escape duality but experience it with eyes wide open to see it is a positive confirmation of non-duality.

Separation and constant movement are necessary to uphold the illusion of duality so that it seems to be a world defined by time and space.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Oneness is formless, thus endless. But since it is without beginning and end, it takes up no space.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

That which is you is that which is One, and since it takes more than one to have a shape, you are formless. Consequently, you are not in a world defined by time and space. It is a fantasy set off by imagining separating from oneness and observing it from the outside.

But oneness is formless, so there is nothing to discover. On the contrary, it is as small and flat as possible in terms of dimension. That is why it is impossible to define oneness unless envisioned to change when observed from different angles, added together in various combinations, and distinguished by deeming some better than others, so it appears as being in a world defined by time and space. See the animation on the top.

However, this is not to say that you must avoid separating, or anything else for that matter, to get back to that which is One. Nor do you need to do the right thing or have a pure heart. Since oneness is formless, thus endless, there is nowhere else to dream up a world where there seems to be more than one. Consequently, all experiences of such a world are a positive confirmation of that which is One. Thus, the more confirmed, the less you believe there is more than One.

A way to speed up the undoing of this belief is to perceive all experiences as a symbol of oneness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Reality is formless, so it cannot be seen. But that is not a problem. Formlessness has no beginning and end, so everything is there.

Science states that the world consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. Although the rest also is empty space, thus like a dream consists of nothing substantial, it is perceived to be elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space. In other words, the experience of a material world and you as someone tangible separated from everything else is make-believe. Consequently, whether your experiences are perceived to be direct, spiritual or mundane, they are a fantasy that you have alone together – also your interpretation of this article.

The world is your own bubble of time and space. There is nobody in it, neither you. It is all a fantasy. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

What and where you experience being is in your bubble of time and space. There is nobody in it, nor you. It is a fantasy made out of nothing and by nobody. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The specific form you appear to be in a world defined by time and space is perceived to move closer or further away from those experienced to be separated from it, or as if they move closer or further away from it in time and space.

But as that which is you is no different from the formlessness of oneness, and as formlessness is endless, there is no more than that which is One. Consequently, the experience of a world defined by time and space, where you appear to be someone tangible, meeting others who seem just as substantial, is a fantasy. You are alone together* in your imaginary capsule of time and space.

Yet you believe it is real, and what you experience inside is separated from you. This you choose to believe because the everlasting peace of non-duality is considered dull compared to being someone in a world defined by time and space.

But no matter how special you become, you are never satisfied because that which is you is the formlessness of oneness. But instead of realising that, you seek satisfaction from something new, better or bigger. Fortunately, that is not a problem when you perceive everything as a symbol of that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As oneness is formless, thus endless, there is no more than One. Hence meeting somebody is impossible, except in fantasy.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Everything experienced is inside your imaginary capsule of time and space. That is why the world is in the eye of the beholder, and you are alone together.

Alone together can be compared to having a dream. Everything that appears to happen in it – no matter how and where it is experienced to be – is happening in you. And though there seem to be many different appearances, they are not there. There is nobody but you. You are alone, having a dream about a world where there seems to be more than one. See the article Alone together, you bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One.

Just like the movement in the above image is a trick conducted by the brain, so is the experience of being someone substantial in a tangible world. The image is grabbed from the web.

The brain tries to fool you into thinking your experiences are real. Just like it wants you to think a woman is reaching out for you in the above image, even though nothing in the picture is moving and the woman appearing to be dimensional is an illusion because the image is flat and static. Ultimately speaking, it is not even there.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You cannot get something specific in the formlessness of oneness, so you start to wonder if oneness is all there is. Next, you look outside of it to see if there could be more than one.

Looking for more, though, is an illusion, regardless of whether you look inside or outside of that which is One. It is formless, thus without inside and outside. Besides, it requires more than one to look for something, and as formlessness is endless, therefore everything, there is no more than that which is One. Nevertheless, you imagine a world outside of it, where there is more than one.

In this fantasy, there is more than one place to go and more than one to meet. But just like a dreamer remains the same in the same place while having a dream with different appearances in different places, that which is you remain the formlessness of oneness while appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

However, even in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is a well-known secret that such a world is an illusion. According to scientific research, the world is empty space. In other words, when you see and feel something tangible, it is make-believe. Fortunately, perceiving everything in this fiction as a symbol of that which makes it possible to experience a made-up world, namely the formlessness of oneness, all its definite appearances, eventually become indefinite. Thus there is no separation to support the belief that there is more than that which is one.

The reason for having a sex fantasy is that you want to be and have something you cannot have in reality. Likewise, the reason for having a fantasy of duality.

If there seem to be movements in 3D in this pic, the movement is happening in you and not in the pic. It is non-dimensional and everything is still.

If this image seems to have movements in 3D, you invent this because the image is non-dimensional, and everything is still. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Since non-duality cannot be seen, it is assumed to be obscured by duality. But that is not so. Non-duality cannot be seen because only what does not exist can be seen.

Does this sound strange to you? Then think of a dream. The ones appearing in it cannot see the dreamer. Therefore, only that which cannot be seen in the dream is real.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The dimensions and distances in a dream are fake, likewise, in a world defined by time and space.

If a computer with AI is programmed to think it is a bird flying around on a star, it produces moving images of a star, suggesting it is a bird flying around it. Humans can be compared to a machine generating images of a world where there seems to be more than one around it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Seeing more than one can is comparable to wearing glasses, programmed to make a world where there seems to be more than one appearing on top of that which is One.

In an augmented reality created via special glasses, your digitally altered face can be seen like that by others also make those special glasses.

In augmented reality, which can appear via special glasses, you can make a digital layer on top of your face, so others with similar glasses see your face as you want. This image is grabbed from an article about augmented reality.

Events in a computer game may seem to progress in time and space. But they are all stored higgledy-piggledy on a tiny spot. In other words, what you see is fabricated.

Maybe without knowing it, the game makers are replicating how the world – including bonus ones like astral worlds – is fabricated by twisting reality into a virtual world.

The new technology called AR – augmented reality – can demonstrate this. You put on glasses that change what you see before you, so you appear to participate in a virtual world on top of the physical one. The latter you forget because everything in the virtual world seems authentic – just like chatting in cyberspace feels like talking in the physical world.

»We have absorbed the internet into our nervous systems, and it has made us different,« says Canadian director David Cronenberg, who is very fascinated by technology, in the article David Cronenberg on Predicting the Future and What a Dog’s Reality Is Like.

AR glasses can also be programmed to give you a unique appearance that other persons with similar glasses see when you meet.

It seems that only one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One grasps what is perceived as authentic is an artificial reality layered on top of that which is real. It is like everybody is wearing glasses programmed to see a world where there seems to be more than one, although there is nothing to see because it takes more than one to be aware of something, and there is no more than oneness since it is formless, thus endless.

You do not see colours or forms but the wavelength of light hitting the eye’s retina. Regardless of the wavelengths being colourless and formless, the brain assigns colour and shape to them per your conditioning of how the world should look. In other words, the world you believe to see is fabricated by the brain.

In the early days of Hip-Hop, a tape loop, like in this image, with a fragment of an obscure R&B track was put into a ghetto blaster. Here the loop functioned as a unique piece of music that someone was breakdancing or rapping to on the street. Nowadays, Hip-Hop has become more complex, with many fragments of already existing music sampled on top of each other so that you cannot recognise the original bits. Instead, you hear the sum of them as a new piece of music. In many ways, it is a repetition of how the world of duality is made with fragments of non-duality sampled into a virtual layer of reality on top of it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The way Hip Hop started is an excellent way to describe how the world of duality is fabricated. In the late 70s, rappers ripped their favourite part of a sound recording – perhaps, a guitar riff – by cutting it out of a cassette tape so that it could be turned into a loop on another cassette.

The cassette with the loop was played on a boombox (also called ghetto blaster). They placed on the street to entertain those around them by rapping or breakdancing to the loop, which they pretended to be a unique piece of music invented by themselves. LL Cool Jay, for example, started in this way. Nowadays, technology has progressed, and sampling is not done simply but via computer software – often with several samples on top of each other implemented in different ways until the sum of it sounds like a new creation.

In order to uphold the belief in being someone definitive, you basically repeat the same loop of thoughts. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In a world of duality, you repeat a loop of thoughts – some call it to be conditioned – so that you appear to have your own indisputable way of being someone special. The basic loop is ‘I am inside, you are outside.’ The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In the early 80s, adding scratching on top of the dance tracks played in discos became popular. It was done by quickly turning a vinyl record back and forth with your hand and using the mixer to add this sound on top of the music played from another vinyl record.

To make long short, fragments of existing music are used to make something that sounds like new music. Yet, nothing has been created that was not already there. The same applies to a world of duality. Distorted views of non-duality are turned into loops to create the illusion of a world of duality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

No reason to be curious about how the story of the world will end. It is already over. It ended at the exact moment it started. You are just replaying a loop of it, very dear to you or maybe frightening.
