To be in sync with the natural flow of thoughts [draft]

Updated December 18, 2022

Like a self-driving car needs instructions from the internet about where to go, a human entirely relies on the brain. Not only does every impulse come from there, but all experiences are fabricated there, regardless they seem yours or others, physical or spiritual. So unless you perceive yourself as independent of the brain, you are automatically connected with everything you experience, thus feeling happy. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius’ Duality Hacks in a particular order. But in the case of this article, you benefit from reading hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

THE BASIC SELF IS SYNCED WITH THE BRAIN:
The thoughts the basic self receives from the brain are tailored to its specific personality. For example, Alexius has a storeroom manager personality with touches of scholastic and academician traits (read more about that here). So when he outlines Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings into duality hacks or organises his music into particular groups, he is in sync with the brain’s script.

There is nothing magic about following the GPS instructions when driving a car, nor about following the instructions of the brain when moving in the body. It is as easy as pie when your perception is in sync with the thoughts coming from the brain.

When Alexius lost his business, wife and house, he moved to a tiny room with a new girlfriend. But soon, he lost her too. However, since the subsequent sadness was perceived as ‘it is what it is,’ he did not say no but yes to how the brain’s script worked out for him. Thus he felt connected with the shots of happiness continually coming from the brain. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Before Alexius started writing the duality hacks, he seemed scripted to go bankrupt with the businesses he had owned for many years. And so he did without perceiving it as unjust but as ‘it is what it is.’ Since his perception was in sync with the brain’s script, going down felt as entertaining as going up – like going on a rollercoaster (read more about that here). 

But had he tried to be detached from going down, he would have been out of sync with the brain’s script, thus not feeling amused by falling. But since he perceived it as ‘it is what it is.’ feeling down turned out not to be singular but twofold, wherefore he was also feeling high. Hence it is in sync with the brain’s story of duality, where everything comes in pairs.

Believing to be somebody, you can either be the basic or special self. You are the basic self when the brain’s script is perceived as it is. But if the perception rest on how the script should be, you appear to know better, thus being a special self.

Being in sync with the script is not a matter of siding with it but accepting that whether you go right or left, for example, the script goes on as planned by the brain – just like an aeroplane on its way to Spain continues as scheduled regardless of changing your seat. In short, when you perceive your reaction to the script as ‘it is what it is,’ all your single-minded feelings are revealed as twofold, wherefore you are in sync with the brain’s script of twofoldness, thus feeling fulfilled by the duality flow. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

But suppose the consciousness that the brain has built into the self goes rogue and insists on having specific feelings, such as being happy, not sad. In that case, the special self tries to manifest that by making a perception of the script based on a philosophy that separates happiness and sadness. However, since this perception is out of sync with the script, no matter how beautiful a picture your philosophy paints of the world, it does not make you happy because, without sadness, you cannot feel genuinely happy. So what you believe in feeling is thought up.

It requires no effort for the basic self to be happy, whereas it takes much work for the special self to get just a taste of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Some meet in groups with like-minded ones to establish their conceptualised feelings as genuine. For example, it may be a small group worshipping someone who promises happiness without sadness or sunshine without rain. Or maybe it is a big group, such as a country, where you feel together by following the national concepts.

But since every group is based on excluding the wrong ones, the members who do not exclude others per the group’s agreed concepts are seen as traitors. Hence they are banned from the group until they revert to its concepts and exclude everything that defies the group. Some may choose to start a new group instead. 

Although the basic self has no need to follow a specific concept, it may have to show off as single-minded to function in the conceptualised world around it. But internally, it is free to follow the duality flow. Hence it is closer than the special self to the perception’ dunno what it is,’ thus the bliss of nothing. However, that does not mean it is Enlightened. On the contrary, no kind of self-awareness survives the Enlightenment of that which is One (read more about that here).

If you are scripted to jog every second day, you cannot push yourself to run every  – just likea movie goes forward as scripted regardless of how much you want it to speed up. However, being in sync with the brain’s script does not mean you have to stop wishing it was different, but that you perceive your reaction to the discrepancy as ‘it is what it is.’ When you do that, everything feels good enough as it is.

Regardless your perception is in sync with the brain’s script or not, you cannot plan for something to happen that is not scripted. Fortunately, there is no urge to plan anything when your perception is in sync with the script. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen

BEING IN SYNC WITH THE BRAIN’S SCRIPT OR NOT
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.

When your perception is synced with you moving with the speed of the Earth, 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 a slowed-down version of it so you have time to make a perception of yourself as powerful, humble, balanced, active or whatever you reckon makes you appear impressive.

But there is no time to make up such a perception when feeling the pulsation of the moment, nor is there any need to do so because the body shivers with ecstasy as if shaken by an earthquake of tenderness. The Ukrainian pianist Lubomyr Melnyk takes you there by playing extremely rapid, intricate patterns of notes, producing 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.

But the special self avoids speediness because it needs time to control its appearance to look balanced. To accomplish that, it meditates or something else to slow things down to get time to make a static appearance of itself.

Fortunately, there is no right way to perceive the complexity of a moment. But as long as your perception relates to it and not to an edited version, 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).


NOTES ABOUT NOTHING

  • No matter how you experience the appearances on a computer screen and where you believe the experience comes from, what you experience is not there. Every part of it is a computer-generated simulation, and it only seems 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.
