Since it takes more than one to be somebody, there is nobody in oneness

The projector of a movie is not in film protecting on a screen. And the world on the screen is not in the projector. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Everything in a world defined by time and space has an end. So neither love nor anything else will save you from dying. But what does not die is that which made it possible to create a fantasy of a world defined by time and space. In Alexius’ Duality Hacks, this has many names, such as the formlessness of oneness, spirit, non-duality or that which is one. It is not in a world defined by time and space, though.

You can compare such a world to a movie and the formlessness of oneness to the projector. The movie projector is not in the projected, and the way you perceive that is not in the projector. It does not know how you perceive what it projects – and it could not care less because what it projects is not real. This does not mean that you should renounce the world you seem to experience. On the contrary, you can love or hate anything in the world, as you feel like. It does not matter because what you see is not there.

What matters, though, is that you do not hang onto love or anything else in the world where you experience being. If you do, you will take up imagined space when, so there is no room for you in oneness since it is spaceless.

Since life is formless, you are not alive if you have a shape.

In the context of the movie metaphor, the Enlightenment of that which is One can be compared to unfiltered light coming from the projector. No world is to be seen – and that is why one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One knows, everything that appears to have a form is an illusion.

Nobody expects a movie projector to be in the world it projects on a screen because neither that nor anything else physical can be part of a virtual world.

In other words, the world of a movie is not a manifestation of the physical world, and though it is experienced due to the projector, it cannot be experienced in it, nor has it any power to change it. All the projector can do is project what is added in front of it.

Anything can seem real in an illusion. It is a matter of believe.

When perceiving everything as a symbol of that which makes it possible to experience something, it does not matter what it appears to be. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one can be compared to experiencing you are part of a movie world. Though oneness is used to project this fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one, it does not know it. Nor does it know that you believe to be in it rather than oneness because you prefer the excitement of more than one over the peace of that which is One. Nor does it know what you believe in having a beginning and end. It does not know of time but sees the reel with the movie as a whole, wherefore everything happens simultaneously, so it is one perpetual present. See What time is!?

Therefore, in the context of the movie metaphor, if you are not identified with the projected but with what is projecting it, nothing changes when the movie is over, because the projector is still there, as it also was while it appeared to cast a film of a world where there seems to be more than one. One way of not identifying with the projected is to perceive it as a symbol of that which generates it, namely the projector.

This is where a movie in a cinema comes from – at least in the days of analogue film – and as you can see, it has nothing to do with the world that appears to be on the screen. Also, it is so much smaller than the world that is experienced to be on the screen. The same applies to that which is One, which is so much smaller than a world where there seems to be more than one. It is, actually, so small that it cannot be seen.

Some may respond to the above movie metaphor with the question: »Who has put the film in the projector?« They think that this question proves the movie is real.

Thoughts does not prove anything.

But there is nothing that proves a world where there seems to be more than one is real. It is silly explanations about an almighty god, an explosion of nothing coming out of a black hole as something, ‘I think therefore I am,’ or naive beliefs like ‘I exist because I can feel pain when I pitch the body’. The latter would be the same as saying, I am the coat I wear because I can feel something when I pitch it. But you are not your coat or body, nor soul or consciousness. That is why you say my coat, body, soul and consciousness.

You are not anything at all because it takes more than one to be something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless, thus endless.
