CANCELLEX Being in sync with the brain’s script or not

Updated September 29, 2022

What you believe to be can be compared to a smartphone. Although it can do thousands of things, it depends entirely on its operator – just like you do on the brain. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Although the basic self feels free to follow the brain and the special self believes it is free from it, none is free. Since the brain processes all experiences, also those believed to come from the heart, higher consciousness and whatnot, we are a product of the brain. The special self denies this and opposes the brain. But what you fight, you need. However, the basic self does not hide its brain dependency but happily counts on it.

And just like a magician’s tricks are laid bare, the more you watch them, the experiences of the brain are exposed as nothing, the more you follow them. Hence the basic self sooner or later realises that it is a fantasy of the brain. Consequently, the illusion of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one does not seem to hide that there never was or will be anything but that which is One.

Alexius hates the brain’s script when he wakes up to the smell of cat piss on the floor. However, he does not try to reduce his hate by thinking his cats are sweet and innocent. He hates them, too, for pissing on the floor. But if he stands by all his hate, it defines all his love. Thus the interaction of love and hate makes him feel like walking on clouds when he cleans the floor.

The special self is so removed from its basic being that it thinks it needs to be grounded or transformed into something higher. But, on the other hand, the basic self has no need to change because it relates to the thoughts coming from the brain as they are, thus in sync with the present experience processed by the brain.

This does not necessarily mean the present experience makes you feel good, but as long as your reaction to it refers to the brain’s thoughts, you will feel entertained whether they seem to make you angry or calm.

Nor does it mean your life gets more consistent. Maybe you get an impulse to read this article in the middle of doing the dishes, and so you go reading it, regardless of being the basic or special self, because the brain is always in charge.

The special self does not relate to the present experience produced by the brain but how it envision it. Thus it feels disconnected.

But since the special self feels insecure, this is triggered by the perceived inconsistency. So it blames the brain for holding it down and distances itself from it by claiming to come from the heart. But this experience, like any other, is processed by the brain, so its independence is an illusion.

On the other hand, the basic self perceives the apparent disturbance as an integrated part of the day’s entertainment. That is, if it senses any disruption at all. Most likely not, because the basic self feels fulfilled, so it has no need to perceive anything as inconsistent.

Practically speaking you are always in sync with the brain. You cannot choose not to follow its script of duality. But you can choose to think you know a better way. However, this does not change anything other than you you do not feel connected because the script goes on as programmed by the brain.

In other words, being in sync with the brain’s script of duality is not a matter of waiting for things to happen according to the manuscript. They always do. It is simply a matter of perceiving your reaction to it as ´it is what it is.´ By doing so, you see your response is not singular but twofold. Thus you are in sync with the script of duality.

If you perceive the sun to go up and down, your perception is out of sync with the brain’s script because the sun does not go up and down. Instead, what and where you believe in being goes up and down.

If your perception is in sync with the speed of the Earth and thus of you moving with it, you feel calm inside while racing outside.

Therefore, your perception is not coordinated with what is going on, namely that your feet are spinning at around 1.000 miles an hour while the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour. Hence you will not feel the thrill of moving at such a high rate, but the depression from a static perception founded on unstable thoughts.

This stagnant perception, which is the one society supports, is meant to make you think that fulfilment does not come from not resonating with the present movement as it is but with a slowed-down version of it that gives you time to make a perception of yourself where you look powerful, humble, balanced, active or whatever you reckon will make appear more impressive.

Feeling the pulsation of the moment, however, there is no time to make up a perception where you seem to be significant, nor is there any need to do that because the body shivers with ecstasy as if an earthquake of tenderness shakes it.

In the case of Alexius, he sometimes feels that it is like listening to the Ukrainian pianist Lubomyr Melnyk playing extremely rapid, intricate patterns of notes, which produce overtones so trance-inducing that a cascade sound of purity makes you forget, it is ignited by the speed and complexity underneath it. Read more about that here.

There is no right way to perceive the complexity of a moment. But as long as the perception relates to it and not to an edited and simplified version of it, every perception will make you feel good. So good, indeed, that the inherent speed may bring about glimpses of Enlightenment (read about glimpses of Enlightenment here).

The special self may claim it wants this, but that is a lie. It fears speed because that prevents it from controlling its appearance. Hence it meditates or something else to slow things down so that it has the time to consume static stuff like books and clothes and become wiser and more beautiful in the future, which it imagines will make it more loved.

Perceiving the brain’s script as ‘it is what it is,’ you can count on always being in sync with it, thus feeling entertained. Being that you are not so far from the perception, ‘dunno what it is,’ which connects you with the empty breath* and its bliss of nothing instead of the brain’s entertainment of something.

To appear as if you are in a world of something but not of it and thus in the bliss of nothing, you can neither be in nor out of sync with the brain’s script because both ways ratify that you are in its world of something as well as of it. So unlike the basic self who basically says ‘It is what it is’ and the special self who says ‘I know what it is,’ you say ‘Dunno what it is.’

When saying so, you do not ratify your present experience as something. Hence you go back to the nothingness from where the brain has used a second construct it. In other words, in linear time, you go back one second (read more about that here) to the gap the brain makes out between nothing and oneness. Physically speaking, you still appear to be someone in a world of something, but there is no awareness of being that. Thus you get the bliss of nothing (read more about that here).


  • No matter how you experience the appearances on a computer screen and, where you believe the experience to come from, what you experience to be, there is not there. Every part of it is a simulation generated by the computer, and it only seems to be real if you want to perceive it like that.
  • Just like a dream is a construction of nothing that never leaves the dreamer, although it seems to happen in a world outside of it, the self and the world that appears to be outside of it is a construction of nothing that never leaves the brain, regardless of what and where the self believes to be.

NOTE: The above article is part of hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.





the self cannot have a conscious experience of being someone if it does not endorse the experiences of a tangible world as real because otherwise, there is not something to confirm its existence as someone substantial in a tangible world.

In other words, if you ignore the stream of thoughts the brain makes to simulate the existence of a tangible world, you will senseyou are a fantasy of the brain.


In other words, when being someone substantial in a tangible world does not seem appealing, one should ignore the stream of thoughts the brain makes to simulate the existence of such a world. Nor should one try to stop or change it, but to sense the nothingness the brain has twisted into this stream of something.

However, this is not possible while experiencing being someone in a world that seems to consist of something. But as the experience of something takes the brain one second to make (read more about that here), you can sense the unprocessed version of an experience at the beginning of that second, thus entering the bliss of not-knowing what the brain makes you experience one second later.
