Our eyes cannot see anything at all. The tangible world we believe seeing is a construction of thoughts compound by the brain based on the light it claims to pass through our eyes. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Even though the digital photos in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings seem to differ and each has its own story, they are the same in that they all consist of nothing but zeros and ones. And the images do not seem to be different before an app translates specific mixes of zeros and ones into separate photos reminiscent of the world where we experience being separated beings.

This translation of zeros and ones into images that we seem to recognise as something from the world where we believe to makes us forget that the raw data of each image consist of the exact same zeros and ones and that there would be absolutely nothing to see if they had not been rendered by an app.

This does not only apply to digital images but anything that appears to be different from something else, regardless it seems to be inanimate or animate, spiritual or physical and whatnot. In the world where we believe in being, the app doing this is the brain. It translates nothing into something that seems tangible.

»Your eye is like a camera … Photons pass through your lens, which focuses them onto a spot at the back of your retina. There, specialised photoreceptive structures called rods and cones convert these photons into electromagnetic impulses that your brain interprets as shapes, colours, and textures.« From an article in Wired.

First, an app translates zeros and ones into frequencies that seem to reach your eyes from your screen. Then, the brain converts those frequencies into something that looks like you expect the world to be. Lastly, you perceive that as it is made by the brain or imagine a better version.

The human eyes can be compared to a digital camera, that contrary to an analogue camera, it does not make images on a film inside it. Instead, it records the RAW data of light coming through the lens when the shutter button is pressed.

This data, however, cannot be seen as an image on the screen of the camera before it is converted by a built-in app into the contrasts that define a world where there seems to be more than one. Technically speaking, this is most often done by rendering RAW into a JPEG file.

If the raw data received by the eyes or any other sense is not translated by the brain into something perceivable, there does not appear to be someone experiencing anything.

Likewise, there is nowhere inside the head of us where the light recorded by the eyes is processed into an image like in an analogue camera. The data or frequencies of light captured by the eyes can only be seen as an image reminiscent of the world where we believe to be when the brain has fabricated such an image by translating the data it collects from three taps in the eyes, that respectively record red, green and blue frequencies.

Since it takes time for the brain to process the information it gets from the eyes in a specific moment, it sorts the received information into categories and only use those needed to make up the image it wants you to see. The time delay in processing, it extrapolates so it does not seem to interfere with what you perceive to be happening now.

You can read more about that in the articles You want to be deceived, and so you are and Duality is a simulated reality on top of non-duality.

Facebook can now automatically write captions on images, that can be read by blind people, so their brain can use this info to construct an image inside of them as if they actually see the image on Facebook. The graphic is grabbed from an article in Wired.

As it always takes the brain about one second to accomplish this, our conscious experience of the present is a construction of thoughts about what happened one second ago – also if we believe in coming from the heart and whatnot. Thus we do not see but think that we are somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one. Read more about that here.

It is pretty similar to how artificial intelligence automatically generates an audio caption on a photo in the News Feed for blind people on Facebook so they can fabricate an image of a pizza, for example, themselves. The image is, by the way, grabbed from an article in Wired about this.

The blind ones, however, will not know if artificial intelligence always gets it right. Nor will they or the ‘seeing’ ones understand that the brain never gets it right when it produces experiences of a world where there seems to be more than one because there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless.

So in the context of that which is One, you do not see this article since it takes more than one to see something. But nor do you in the context of a world where there seems to be more than one. Everything on the screen, where you believe to see this article, consists of zeros and ones added together in entirely meaningless ways.

You only seem to see this nothingness as something because your electronic device has a system that translates it into wavelengths of light that reach your eyes in ways that the brain, in this case, turns into letters forming English words.

The brain is translating the raw data coming through the eyes into experiences that seem to be tangible. But it is all make-believe.

Reading these words in a country where the internet is censored, some of them may have been changed or left out. And if not, you have most definitely left out some yourself, so you can twist Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings into something that fits your perception of the world. See also The closer you look, the less you believe what you see is real.

In other words, the article that you think you are reading is not the article that Alexius wrote. What you believe to be reading is based on how you perceive the brains translation of the article that your browser has rendered from HTML, which is One of the languages an electronic media uses to convert its mess of zeros and ones into something that appears to make sense. Read more about that here.

If you experience to be run in a dream, you are mistaken. You are not in the dream but in your bed adding thoughts together in such a way that you perceive yourself to be running in a non-existing world. The same applies to everything you believe to experience in a world where there seems to be more than one. You are not there because there is no more that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless.

In other words, what you believe to read is made up in your brain, just like when you have vertigo and experience the world spinning around you. It is not happening, only in your head. It is something you make up. And so is, for example, feeling loved or rejected. Those feelings are the same in the sense that they are not caused by anything other than electrical impulses in your head. This applies to all experiences, including those perceived to be divine or spiritual. See All experiences are equally unreal.

You can compare the experience of living in a world where there seems to be more than one to using a flight simulator. You are not flying at all. It is an illusion.

Neither humans nor self-driving cars actually see the world where they appear to be, but what their master, respectively the brain and The Cloud, based on the info coming from their senses, decides for them to see. And as you can ‘see’ in this image of how a self-driving car perceives the world, it is entirely different from how you believe to see it. The graphic is grabbed from Wired.

What you ‘see’ can be compared to what a self-driving car sees, namely nothing manipulated into something. The info received from the self-driving car sensors is shaped by The Cloud into what it wants the car to ‘see’ and respond to as it is real. Read more about that here.

Whether you seem to see something in a movie or what appears to be a world outside of you, it is an experience fabricated by the brain. So if someone is seen as sad, it does not mean that this is so but that this is how a certain wavelength is interpreted by the brain.

Believing to see something can also be compared to how the artificial intelligence (AI) that Facebook and Google use to sort your photos is programmed to recognise your pictures. Even though all data in electronic media consists of nothing but zeros and ones, artificial intelligence is programmed to experience special combinations of them as if they are substantial entities. The more it ‘sees’ those entities that it defines as human beings, the more it learns to interpret a particular facial expression as a special emotion. Thus it experiences to ‘feel’ what it ‘sees’ and, therefore, relate to the persons in the photos as if it is one of them.

But since artificial intelligence does not exist as somebody, nobody is relating to anybody. It is just layer upon layer of algorithms that collects data and put them together in the same way like the human brain compiles thoughts to make it appear as if there is a tangible world where there is nothing but empty space.

When a smartphone recognises your face it does not mean that it sees you. In the case of Apple, for example, it registers the electrical impulses from a grid of 30,000 invisible dots which has been projected onto your face to create a 3-D map of your facial topography. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The brain uses the very same organ to fabricate all the apparently different experiences that it makes you conscious of. So if you split them into imaginative or real, for example, you are mistaken. All experiences are make-believe.

In other words, the experience of a world defined by time and space is a construction of thoughts made by nobody from out of nothing – or as science states, the world consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space and the rest that we perceive as elements of matter making up a tangible world, is also blank.

»The app helps people who are blind or losing their sight ´feel´ smiles. The app uses facial recognition to find a face and then vibrates in the user’s hand to let them know that the person they’re talking with is smiling.« From an article in Wired.

The person you believe to be is blind, deaf and numb. What you experience to see, hear feel and taste, regardless it appears to be spiritual or mundane, is nothing but electrical impulses. They do not mean anything at all unless the brain manipulates them into something that appears to be a smile, for example.

The brain is like an app in a wearable device for blind people. It uses facial recognition to find a face and tells you when the algorithm suggest that it smiles, so the blind can have an experience of ´seeing´ and/or ´feeling´a smiling face.

Most insist that this construction of thoughts is set in motion by something. Religions claim it is done by god, and many gurus stand firm on the belief that higher consciousness is behind it, and you will find it if you meditate or chant, for example. But since reality is that which is One, and it takes more than one to find something, only that which is not real can be found.

Ultimately speaking, the above is just another construction of thoughts that is as illusionary as anyone else. Yet this illusion accepts that it is not real, as it requires more than one to write, read, realise or understand it, and reality is that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless.

Thus it does not claim to expose what is real, but what is not real, so you stop to believe that there is something to see where there is nothing, and this belief, therefore, does not appear to hide there is no more than that which is One.

NOTE: The above about eyes applies to all the senses. For example, if you are tone-deaf, it is not due to a problem in the ear but the brain, which cannot find the right equation in the music.

The article is part of hack #5.1 Eyes cannot see, which is about the brain fooling you into believing that you see, hear, feel and taste a tangible world where there is nothing but empty space. See also the below articles.
