Epilogue to HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it will end by itself[draft]

Alexius’ Duality Hacks come to him as ethereal harmonies. And it is not before he hums along with it that
words about hacking the belief in duality rapidly and unorganised float into his computer.

That which is One has only one word and as it takes more than one to say or hear something, it cannot be said, thus neither heard.

When Alexius asks the source of the ethereal harmonies, which he calls Gu∂ruång,** if a specific hack is finished, there is no answer. This could be because it takes more than one to reply, and there is no more than that which is One, so any statement is fake. At least, this is why the words making up Alexius’ Duality Hacks are meaningless. However, if you get that, they have fulfilled their purpose: to expose there is nothing in a world of duality.

But when the natural flow of words stops, and Alexius goes on writing using phrases from his default vocabulary, the duality hacks may seem to uncover something real. This can be compared to when Alexius speaks Spanish, which is not his native language. Whenever he is out of Spanish words, he tries English ones, hoping they are similar. They often are, but at times they are off. Another problem is that the ethereal harmonies make Alexius so spaced out that he forgets to put words together in alignment with them.

Maybe that is why he at present spends time adjusting Alexius’ Duality Hacks, so all the words reflect the nothingness a world of something is made from. Most likely, though, there is no other reason for the fine-tuning other than this is what he is directed to do at the moment.

Alexius every now and then forgets to remember to exist as someone. Thus nothing bids welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. However, since he returns from it as something he is not that but to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.* Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius has not realised oneness, neither has anybody else because it takes more than one to accomplish something. For the same reason, although he has bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One,* he is not enlightened.

Nevertheless, he has vague memories of forgetting what and where he seems to be, so nothing prevents a light brighter than anything to undo the experience of ever having existed as someone. Hence nobody sees the light is absorbed by a black hole with no beginning and end, and, therefore, no definitive shape to hide there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness. Here you can read about the ins and out of a black hole.

Consequentlyy, he is neither in the formlessness of oneness or anywhere else. Yet he appears to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one who is compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.*

Others are trying to put words together about duality and non-duality. But since most of them have not bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One,* they imagine non-duality can be realised in a world of duality. However, this is a denial of non-duality because it is formless, thus endless, wherefore there is no duality.

When the special self sees similarities between new age teachings and Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, it is wishful thinking. New Age philosophy is based on the idea that what you believe in being can be improved. In contrast, the foundation for Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is that whatever you believe to be is an illusion. Thus there is nothing to transform. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This also applies if their guidance is based on glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One* because glimpses, just like movie trailers, are flashes of the whole but nothing like it. See The Enlightenment of that which is One versus glimpses of it.

But they seem to believe that a glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One* and their interpretation of it combined with secondhand knowledge from ancient scriptures will put non-duality into effect in a world of duality. However, since it takes more than one to manifest something, what they get is not that which is One but that which is not one. Furthermore, since it also takes more than one to understand something and their teaching is based on realisation, they enhance the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One instead of undoing it.

Since it takes more than one to be conscious of something, everything you experience is exposed as make-believe. This includes the idea that the brain or something else is making the experiences and that someone is aware of them. Nevertheless, you have fun appearing to be in a world of duality. It is like playing a game.

Fortunately, the application of Alexius’ Duality Hacks does not require any understanding or effort. On the contrary, they apply themselves while reading about them if you do not try to understand them. In other words, the less you know, the more the belief in duality is undone.

Years ago, Alexius and his sons had much fun playing different board games. By following the flow of the games, they naturally came to an end. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

By following the present stream of thoughts to the very end, what and where you appeared to be according to the stream is over. This may be a big change, maybe the end of the body, but mostly it is a small modification. But Alexius was remodelled when he followed the stream of thoughts down the mountain deep into an ancient forest where he was stuck without food and water for two days. After being wired up by a helicopter and spending more than a month in hospitals, he was not into hiking anymore but writing duality hacks (read more about that here).

Finishing the writing of HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end, which is a new add-on to his duality hacks,**** seems to be the end of the stream supporting writing new ones. Instead, a stream backing his basic trait as a storeroom manager appears to have taken over, so the creativity of writing is replaced with the seemingly more tedious process of refining what he already has written. However, none of that changes, he is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that, which is One because that is not an appearance.

Nor does it change that the duality hacks are not his or anybody else’s. Their content can be compared to water running from a tap, which in this metaphor is his buddy Gu∂ruång.** Alexius is the empty glass that picks it up and shapes it into what you read. This was originally called Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, then also The Duality Hacks and recently only Alexius’ Duality Hacks.

But no matter the shape and the name, the flow remains unchanged. It cannot be altered, as that requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is One. For the same reason, it is a metaphor that Alexius is a medium for the flow shaped into Alexius’ Duality Hacks that somebody else read. Nevertheless, as long as you believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is One, there seems to be more than one involved in undoing this belief.

More about Alexius’ non-physical buddy, Gu∂ruång:

Even though waves have different lengths of life and may look like they differ, they all consist of water. Therefore, as they all contain the same, none of them has something that can make them more special than the others. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

On the set out of writing HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it will end, Alexius used other people as role models for the special self. Chatting with others about something, they shamelessly declared their egoistic intentions. Thus thought he got all he needed to write about the special self.

If not perceiving the apparent difference between you and others to make a difference, you recognise, like in a dream, you are alone together. See hack #7 Alone together we go home.

However, without experiencing feeling self-import, the writings about it seemed speculative. Thus he had to pretend to be an egoistic Alexius** to base HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it will end on experiences. So when he says you cannot escape the hell of self-discipline required to uphold a perception of being special if you are afraid of losing something. And this you are, as long as you believe to be and have something special

From experience, Alexius can also say that the special self avoids being part of the whole. Instead, it concentrates on those elements, which it can manipulate into admiring it for being unique. Those the special self cannot control, it claims are dominating. This is all done in an attempt to escape its self-hatred. When not succeeding, the special self considers letting go of something because that confirms it is in control of itself.

In other words, restoring the basic self and being in the duality flow does not come from letting go of something. Nor does it come from avoiding anything or doing something in particular but from being willing to apply Alexius’ Duality Hacks. Since they reveal every reaction is dualistic, feeling lost, in love, or whatnot is twofold. Hence you always feel complete. Eventually, so much that you can have the belief in duality wholly undone.

In the process of having the belief in duality undone, the entertainment of this belief is beefed up by Alexius’ Duality Hacks. Eventually, you feel so entertained that you forget duality. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 4: The direct way to the duality flow
While pretending to be the special self to write about it from experience, Alexius found dark parts in the self he pretended to be that it had hidden from its awareness by pushing forward a light version of itself. Therefore, the description of the special self and psychosomatic disorders in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end is not only based on observations of others but also on the repressed darkness that he pretended to have revealed in the process of writing.**

This is not meant to say that everything heavy or dark belongs to the special self. On the contrary, everybody contains darkness and light since everything comes in pairs of opposites in a world of duality. But unfortunately, the special self always tries to exclude the negative part of a pair, in this case, darkness, so it appears full of light, although it feels incomplete without the darkness. On the other hand, the basic self feels fulfilled and thus incredibly relaxed because it is inclusive. Actually, inclusiveness is a shortcut to the duality flow.

Most have an ongoing internal chat with themselves, where they compliment and denigrate themselves. Read more about that here. If you are not in the duality flow, the brain needs this to happen to uphold the illusion of dualism. Thus the conversation is automatic. But that is very disturbing if you believe you are in charge of your life. Therefore, some try to silence the inner dialogue with meditation, and others distance themselves from their inner talk. Some keep themselves so busy that they seem to be above it or talk so much that the internal conversation is drowned out. Whatever they do to avoid it, the result is feeling incomplete.

But if you do not avoid the dialogue and thus include it, you see it is twofold. For example, »should I do this or not?« is a typical discussion going on repeatedly. When you do not worry about the result but go back and forth between yes and no, you realise you are in the duality flow. In other words, when you do not care about something specific but the flow between that and its counterpart, you are in the duality flow.

The flow often goes back and forth between right and wrong. But that is not important. You do not need an intellectual understanding of the specifics in play. There is no meaning to be found in them. A world of duality is about polarity. Thus, following opposing specifics’ interaction in your internal conversation, you are in the duality flow.

Entering the duality flow like that, you surpass the experience of something specific, being perceived as ‘it is what it is’ to reveal its counterpart, thus that it is twofold, as described in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end. Instead, you enter the duality flow directly by neither picking up happiness nor sadness, for example, but their interplay.

Alexius could write a whole new hack about the direct way to the duality flow.*** Should he, or should he not? It is a perfect question to initiate the experience of the duality flow. You do not get a specific answer, though. Nevertheless, it makes you feel so good that you do not focus on specifics but defocus on their interaction. Hence you laughingly follow the duality flow. However, practically speaking, it seems that, per December 2021, Alexius does not write new duality hacks but upgrades those already published.

You can also use the energy of your unedited internal conversation to ignite a take-off into the empty breath, thus having a break from duality. See hack #5.1 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

In 1972 Alexius returned from the Enlightenment of that which is One as nobody. So he could only remain in a world where there seems to be more than one by pretending to be somebody. This also applies to the years before the Enlightenment because we are all nobody pretending to be somebody separated from others.

However, he was not aware of that before he bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. Therefore, the article Alexius’ childhood is based on his memories of believing to be somebody instead of pretending it. But as you can read in the article, he already began to grasp everything is pretence. You can read more about pretending in HACK #1, Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

*) You can read about the Enlightenment of that which is One in HACK #6, The inward-facing senses, Enlightenment and glimpses of it.

NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality. It is a rough draft that is continuously updated.
