Strangers in the night

In old scriptures, being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is often compared to being in a world of darkness. As someone who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, Alexius knows this is literally so. The world we believe to see is a construction of thoughts added together to make it look like there is something where there is nothing. The below story illustrates this:

There ar
e no streetlights outside Alexius’ home, so when he wakes up in the middle of the night, the only thing ‘lighting’ up his home is the stars or the moon.

Still, it is easy for Alexius to find the way to the toilet without electrical light. He has learned where everything is and can use certain things as navigation points so that they seem to ‘light’ up the way. But it is all imagined and put together by trial and error. Actually, he stumbled quite a few times, learning to ‘see’ his way in the dark.

But he cannot ‘see’ anything other than how he has thought up. Maybe he can learn ‘seeing’ beyond that if he studies how to do it. But what he learns to ‘see’ will be another fabrication because the other rooms are also entirely dark.

The way from his bed to the toilet can be compared to everybody’s way in a world where there seems to be more than one. You seem to see something and then go from that to something interpreted as different. But you move in the dark. Whatever you think you see, you have learned to define like that (read more about that here). Without this knowledge, there is nothing to see. Neither is there anything hidden or something to be understood except that everything you believe in seeing is a construction of thoughts (read more about that here).

When you do not care to find a way through the darkness, what you have learned to see disappears – also darkness because the Enlightenment of that which is One set in. It is not a light that can be compared to the sun or similar artificial sources that lights up something. There is nothing to light up because there is no more than that which is One, and it takes more than one to see something.

You can compare welcoming the Enlightenment of that which is One to making a video call from your computer to that which is One. There is so much light on the computer screen that you cannot see it or anything else until the call is over, and the screen again simulates a world where there seems to be more than one. However, now you know it is a fake, so when you go on like before as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you know it is something you pretend.

Read more about that in Duality Hack #2 Pretending to be twofold undoes duality. The hack explores how pretending to be dual changes the perception of a world where there seems to be more than one so that you are not a victim of it, thus having fun appearing to be what you are not.
