Inclusiveness turns death into a portal to that which is One

This graphical illustration of a so-called out-of-body experience is not entirely correct. You observe yourself from above, but the observer is nowhere to be seen. Since this observation is done from another angle than usual, you conclude you are outside the body. Yet you have never been inside or outside of it. What and where you appear to be is a story made by the brain. And you only agree to believe it because otherwise, you are exposed as a fantasy of the brain. However, in the moment of death, the brain does not have enough oxygen to uphold the images sustaining this fantasy. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

DEATH IS ROUGH WHEN EXCLUSIVE BUT SMOOTH IF INCLUSIVE:
In the moments leading up to death, the brain slowly runs out of oxygen. Hence it cannot fabricate the usual images of a world defined by time and space. Therefore, since thoughts and feelings can no longer be assigned to something definitive, they do not settle but rapidly pass by in an unstructured fashion. That is, if you do not hang onto those assumed to reestablish a world defined by time and space.

However, they cannot establish anything definitive anymore since the brain has stopped producing the experiences of a world defined by time. That is like being in hell if you are used to excluding uncomfortable thoughts and feelings by projecting them onto the world or dumping them in the body because the material world is gone. Thus you are alone with the thoughts and feelings you hang onto.

Fortunately, you are not boxed in by your selected thoughts and feelings but by your desire to be verified by them as someone definitive. So if you do not look for thoughts and feelings to prove you are someone, thoughts pass by quickly, and when they are gone, feelings rush by. Therefore, since there is nothing to confirm the illusion of time and space, you are what you always have been and will be, namely the formlessness of oneness. It is very peaceful because it leaves out anything that requires more than one, such as thinking and feeling.

When you are about to lose consciousness at the moment of death, do not hang onto it because it takes more than one to be aware about something, so without consciousness, there is nothing to hide that which is One.

In short, by not being exclusive but inclusive, your appearance in a world where there seems to be more than one is a straightforward ride that ends with death, which is a portal to that which is One. No fear is holding you back when everything is included. Hence there is nothing to hide, there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

When death sets in, you are sucked into a black hole. That is, if you do not try to define where you are going because then you uphold the belief in being someone definitive. Therefore, when the light at the edges of the black hole explodes and becomes so bright that nothing can be seen, you gently fall into the formlessness of oneness if unseen.

NO CONSCIOUSNESS = NO MORE THAN THAT WHICH IS ONE:
As already implied, at the moment of death, the brain cannot produce images of a world that confirms the belief that there is more than that which is one. But if you do not hang onto the memories of being someone in such a world, there is not something that seems to hide the formlessness of oneness. On the other hand, if you cling to your memories, death looks very scary and claustrophobic because you remember yourself as substantial, and it cannot be confirmed by someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Not hanging onto the consciousness of being someone feels like the end of you. But it is not the end of anything other than the belief it is possible to be and have more than that which is One.

Fortunately, there are no memories of such a world to hang onto if you have been inclusive while appearing to be there because, not excluding anything, you do not seem to be someone specific. In other words, the inclusion of everything experienced does not result in you embodying everything. On the contrary, you are nothing. Hence there is nobody to care about dying.  

When nothing is excluded, there is not something to define you. Thus, nothing to prevent you from falling into the formlessness of oneness. The animation is grabbed from the web.

IT TAKES MORE THAN ONE TO DIE:
Like there are no physical experiences in a dream, there are none when the body you thought to reside in dies.

But all the thoughts and feelings you exclude to define you physically rush by chaotically and speedily. For example, suppose you excluded negativity so you could look only positive, then disapproval will rush by, followed by everything else you have excluded.

However, as there is no physical experience, there is nobody who can escape unwanted thoughts and feelings by projecting them onto somebody else. Thus you are on your own, as you always were and always will be, because there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless.

If you do not believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot die, because it takes more than one to experience that.

For the same reason, the pain of loneliness that all the excluded thoughts and feelings seem to cause, you cannot share with anybody. It feels like you are stuck in hell. However, if all thoughts and feelings are included, you do not need to hide them in a physical world. Thus you are at peace, slowly falling into the formlessness of oneness, where you neither are in hell nor heaven because it takes more than one to be somewhere.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, everything is experienced as separated. But since it requires more than one to experience that, and there is no more than that which is One, the experience is not real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

BELIEVING THERE IS MORE THAN ONE, REALITY FEELS CLAUSTROPHOBIC:
Believing to be someone definitive, you probably assume relaxation comes from something like a good night’s sleep, sex, fitness, yoga or massage. But that is because the brain produces thoughts that imply you are someone inside a body. However, it cannot do that at the moment of death. It does not have enough oxygen to produce thoughts that seem related to a specific self in a tangible body. Therefore, you go crazy unless following the chaotic energy of thoughts to the emptiness of not-knowing, where nobody is bothered about thoughts not adding up to something familiar.

In that case, the rapid flow of thoughts is soon finished and replaced by a similar chaotic flow, but of feelings. Suppose the emptiness of not-knowing is not left in favour of going down memory lane to find something well-known to support specific emotions as real. Then the flow quickly ends, everything is blank, and the Enlightenment of that which is One erases everything you believe in being. See hack #6.1 The Enlightenment of that which is One.

If you want to be at one with a soulmate, god or whatnot, the formlessness of oneness will seem claustrophobic because it takes more than one to become one with somebody, and oneness has only room for one.

However, most people avoid that by clinging to fear. Besides, very few get past the fleeting thoughts because they try to capture the friendly ones and compile them into an experience of being someone in a tangible body. But, as already said, the brain does not have enough oxygen to produce such experiences anymore, so the satisfaction from smoking, having sex, or doing something else that requires a body cannot be found. So, since it slowly dawns on you that the happiness you used to get is out of reach, you feel stuck in nowhere.

There is no world to see when the TV screen is blank. So what you see is what you believe is there. That is also what you see when there appears to be a world on the TV screen because the world is in the eye of the beholder. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

OUT-OF-BODY EXPERIENCE IS AS FAKE AS IN-THE-BODY:
A near-death experience can be compared to watching TV. Suddenly the screen turns blank, and only the sound is left. The world on the TV is gone, and there is nothing but the sound of your thoughts.

When death sets in, the brain cannot fabricate the usual images of a world defined by time and space. Instead, it processes sedative images, like tunnels of light, to prevent you from panicking. But nobody experiences tunnels of light or other spaced-out images if you do not believe to be someone. Neither is there anybody who needs to see calming images because nobody panics since nobody is dying.

REALITY HAS NEITHER BEGINNING NOR END:
When something is over, only the story about it stops. Life has no beginning or end because it is formless. So if you mourn the end of something, it is not life but your story about it that makes you cry. But that is how your story is made real and life unreal. However, since it is life that makes it possible to make the story, you love any story, including its end, when not forgetting that.

The love of life, by the way, is not warm, cold, or something else. Nor is it nothing because it takes more than one to be anything, and it is that which is One. That is why it lasts.
