The body is made to deal with physical issues, not psychological ones

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius’ Duality Hacks in a particular order. But in the case of this article, you may benefit from reading about the perception ‘it is what it is’ in hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to be happy, and the special self in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.


It is not only Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings that talk about using the body to hide psychological problems. In Bioenergetics (see Wikipedia about that), it is the theory that the body gets sick because you dump psychological issues in it. Before Freud, it was the other way around. Then, the cause of psychological problems was considered physical.

However, Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not agree on a link between psychological and physical problems. Even though the same organ in the brain processes their experience, they are not combinable – like night and day, also rendered by the same organ, psychological sphere and physical matter exclude each other. In other words, it is not love but food the body needs to survive. And on a psychological level, it is not food but love that makes you want to continue.

Hack #4.3 The fake mix of physical and non-physical issues undoes the belief that a physical and a psychological matter are connected. When this supposed link is undone where it is made, namely in the mental zone, the body’s biological system is free to deal with the physical issue materially, and you can deal with the psychological one immaterially.


You dissociate yourself from psychological feelings by imagining dumping them in the body. Although that removes the feelings from self-awareness, they remain in the subconscious as something assumed as buried in a vulnerable part of their body. So when the suppressed energy surfaces, it feels like that parts hurt.

But even if you make it go away via massages, for example, the pain seems to pop up in another part of the body because you need the body to ache to confirm you have hidden your unwanted psychological issues inside it to look so good that nobody notices you feel bad.

To undo this mistake, you must look at it where it is made, namely in the psychological sphere. There you see, feeling inferior does not stand by itself because everything is twofold in a world of duality. And since feeling inferior is coupled with feeling wonderful to define each other, it is best not to get rid of feeling inferior as it confirms you are wonderful.

The special self uses much energy to suppress the thoughts and feelings judged incorrect per its belief system so that it appears to be part of something bigger. On the other hand, the basic self follows the brain. And since it creates all experiences, the basic self is part of everything. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The special self uses much energy to suppress the thoughts and feelings judged as unfavourable to preserve what it believes in being or becoming when it lives in the now, comes from the heart and whatnot. On the other hand, the basic self has no desire to appear definitive, thus no need to judge something as wrong.

Besides, it knows negativity is just as crucial as positivity. For example, an electric wire needs the negative pole as much as the positive one to make the energy required to publish this article on the internet.


Worrying is most often pieced together by thoughts coming from continually saying, “what if…?« In other words, your anxiety is a construction of thoughts you perceive as worrying. Actually, this applies to all your opinions about something you experience. They are not based on your experience but on the thoughts you piece together about them. Therefore, if you conclude your stomach hurts, it is not a fact but a make-believe. That is why doctors cannot make a diagnosis based on analysis but make one based on discarding the measurable possibilities, IBS, for example.


If you decide you are clumsy when continually dropping things, you may, by reflex, hide feeling silly in the stomach, thus, eventually, be diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). However, that sickness is not physically measurable through blood or bodily analysis. Instead, the diagnosis is based on eliminating other measurable issues, indicating IBS is a psychosomatic disorder.

That is why it is seldom healed via physical solutions such as excluding specific food from your diet. The issue must be addressed in the psychological sphere where you see yourself as awkward and look for something to ratify it.

That is not to say you should avoid a diet like FODMAP. In the case of IBS, it might be an excellent way to relieve stomach pain so you have the strength to accept your insecurity instead of imagining you have gotten rid of it by hiding it in the stomach. Your clumsiness is not a fact but an opinion of yours. Therefore, if you do not hide it, you can perceive it as ‘it is what it is.’ Hence you see your singular view is twofold. Clumsiness is paired with grace to define each other. Therefore, when you are clumsy, you are also graceful, thus feeling complete in the interaction of opposites.


Every effort to improve yourself is based on the belief something is wrong. That is why your efforts do not change this belief but enhance it. However, this suits you fine. You like to believe you are wrong because that defines you as somebody. Yet being nobody, there is not something wrong but the bliss of nothing.


The problems you perceive to have, do not come from the world where you appear to be but from the belief that you are there. Hence, the solution to all problems is the same: to undo that belief.


If your phone is out of order and seems to make you upset, having the phone fixed may appear to address your anger as well. But the phone can neither make you angry nor stop it. So even though the rage has disappeared from your awareness, it will return when something else triggers it. That is unless you deal with the phone and your fury separately, so both problems are solved on their term. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The special self always thinks it knows better. Thus it forces the body to do extreme yoga exercises, heavy weight lifting, restricting diets, tantra sex, or other mental concepts of wellness that make the body appear to be a manifestation of the special self. The price is a body in pain, but since the primary concern of the special self is its appearance, it gladly pays that price.


The special self preserves its friendly image by imagining all its nasty psychological issues hidden behind physical problems. To prevent them from surfacing and exposing its peaceful image as fake, the special self never relaxes except through structured systems like Tai chi. On the other hand, the basic self has no special image to uphold. Hence relaxing comes naturally.

That does not mean the basic self never explodes with anger. But, contrary to the special self, it does not see it as wrong. Therefore, since it never hides its rage or any other emotion from itself but perceives its reaction to them as ‘it is what it is,’ it has nothing to conceal.

That said, nobody is perfect, so there may have been times when the basic self forgot to perceive its reaction to something as ‘it is what it is.’Fortunately, it is never too late to perceive a past response as ‘it is what it is.’ Thus having it revealed not to be definitive but twofold, there is no specific feeling to avoid.


Both a body and a car need water and food to function. You cannot replace that with spirituality, nor can it change how they work. A body and a car need physical treatment and can only be used materially. Love does not transform them into something else. But unlike a car, the body can heal itself if you do not project non-physical issues onto it. That said, sometimes it needs the assistance of a health care professional.


The special self does not want to see itself as it is, so it excludes everything from its awareness that does not ratify the image of perfectness it has fabricated. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being the basic self, you perceive every moment as the perfect moment, no matter the body’s condition, because the basic self perceives its reaction to it as ‘it is what it is.’ That is why Alexius feels good even though his physical condition does not contribute to this. Due to Scheuermann’s disease, internal organs have been harmed, so he has chronic GERD and inflammation in the lungs and the nose. Furthermore, he has had three operations on the heart. And one of his eyes hardly works. The list goes on.

He has never smoked and has always eaten healthy and exercised, so it seems he cannot improve his physical issues. Sometimes, though, he turns into the special self, assuming it can boost his physical well-being. But since this attempt is based on not feeling good enough, it enhances that feeling. Therefore, frustration builds up until he returns to the default perception of the basic self, ‘it is what it is.’ Thus he feels good, regardless of appearance.

That is not to say you should not take care of the body. On the contrary, you are bound to follow the brain’s instructions regardless of being basic or special land they include taking care of the body. However, the special self does not like to follow orders, so it hides that it obeys the brain by making a perception where the special self appears to be in charge or has chosen to go with a unique flow.

Since that perception is out of sync with the brain’s script, the special self does not feel loved but rejected. It disguises that by projecting the feeling of rejection onto obscure parts of the body. But you cannot hide an abstract problem in something substantial. The body senses you try to do that and fight it by shooting off here and there. Thus, your attempt to combine a psychological issue with a physical one turns into a psychosomatic disorder that cannot be healed until the unfortunate belief in the combo is dropped.

Hereafter the body is free to heal itself, and emotional problems can be dealt with in the non-physical sphere where they were conceived. Actually, the non-physical area is so airy that your psychological issues disappear when you look at them. In other words, they do not remain for long when not blocked from your awareness by imagining they are combined with the heaviness of the body.


In a world where there seems to be more than one, you appear to get rid of unwanted psychological issues by hiding them in the body and later free them from imprisonment by bringing them back into the psyche.

But since there is no more than that which is One, ultimately, there is nothing to heal other than the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Fortunately, Alexius’ Duality Hacks automatically do that when you keep reading them.


Alexius’ Duality Hacks perceive everything as themselves, namely as nothing. Therefore, since Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not see you as someone, they automatically undo the belief in being someone substantial in a tangible world the more you read them.
