Sadness comes from being special, happiness from being basic, and bliss from being nothing [DRAFT]

Updated May 22, 2022

Everything considered a fact is made up by the brain. It is, for example, not a fact that you see this picture now. It has taken the brain one second to fabricate this experience. Hence what you believe in seeing, you saw in the past. And then again, there was no picture one second ago. It is a fantasy of the brain made from nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Your experiences are
not founded on info coming from the sensory system like the brain wants you to believe, which you gladly do because otherwise, it is evident that the world you experience does not consist of tangible elements but intangible thoughts.

You may have noticed the brain does not need your eyes to be open to producing vivid images that look like the world you see with open eyes. Nor does it require you to be awake or sexually stimulated by something in the physical world to produce an orgasm. It can make it happen in a dream. And after watching several movies in a row, the brain fuses their different plots into one continuous story.

The substantiality of what and where you believe to be is a fantasy made by the brain from out of nothing.

This is because whether experiences are perceived as yours or others, real or imagined, authentic or fake, fabrication or factual, physical or spiritual, they are processed by the brain in one higgledy-piggledy by the very same organ. It views everything it processes as another construction of thoughts that needs to be shaped into something which seems so exciting that you do not notice it is a fantasy created from nothing.

Since every experience that someone is aware of has taken the brain one second to manufacture, the origin of what you believe to be experiencing right now is one second away (read more about that here). Therefore, if you go back one second from your present experience, you return to the nothingness the brain used one second to twist into something you perceive to happen now.

Since the brain has used one second to twist a perceived gap between oneness and nothing into your present experience of something (read more about that here), it only takes one second to get back to the nothingness of a state of not-knowing.

If you remain in this nothingness, the subsequent experiences produced by the brain are not perceived as something because you are in a state of not-knowing.* However, they look like before a state of not-knowing,* but the experiences are not perceived as separated from you. In the case of having glimpses of enlightenment in a state of not-knowing,* which is not uncommon, the experience of the physical world, however, fades out proportionally with the intensity of the glimpses.

In this state, the experiences of a world where everything seems separated are still going on. But since what you believed in being cannot be recalled, there is nobody to perceive the apparently different experiences to make a difference. Hence you are in the bliss of nothing, which is nowhere because the brain has not rendered it into something.

There is no awareness of being someone in this state, so there is nobody to know that the emptiness of not believing to be someone is pure bliss until you return to the conscious experience of being someone definitive and vague memories of it pop up.

You may not be in touch with this bliss, but just like you wake up feeling refreshed after a good sleep, regardless you remember your dreams or not, you start over with a clean slate when you return from a state of not-knowing* to the experience of being someone. And that feels wonderful.

In a state of not-knowing,* your eyes may be closed or open, perhaps you sit in a bus or a park, walk down a noisy street, talk a lot or are silent. Everything is as normal, and thoughts go on as usual since what and where you appear to be is a construction of thoughts. There is one difference, though. Before, thoughts were perceived to be something and now as nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

However, if the brain for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most,* is not kept busy by someone experiencing an ongoing conversation inside or outside with somebody perceived to be someone else, it falls into a coma. There is more about that in the following article.

In other words, if separation is not continually acknowledged as real, the brain falls apart. Thus you cannot come back to the consciousness of being someone substantial in a tangible world, nor can you continue in the bliss of emptiness as the fantasy about something made from nothing has stopped. Actually, it never began because there is no more than that which is One, and it takes more than one to make something.

But most likely, you will leave a state of not-knowing* a long time before that revelation. And since you are returning to the consciousness of being someone definitive as the basic self which you originally were meant to be in the fantasy of the brain, you are in sync with the thoughts of the brain. Being that, you support it, and the brain, in return, gives you happiness.

Therefore, since you become so satisfied that you do not need anything in particular, you happily apply one or more of Alexius’ Duality Hacks, again and again, and enter a state of not-knowing* for brief moments of bliss until this gets so intense that you cannot help bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is One. See hack #6.3 The inward-facing senses, the Enlightenment of that which is One and glimpses of it.

No reason to blame yourself for leaving a state of not-knowing. It is not possible to remain there, because the brain falls into a coma if not engaged in continous conversation about something.  Besides, you return to the conscious experience of being someone with a clean slate so you automatically serve the brain, which is adventurous.

This state of not-knowing lasts from a split second to 20 minutes, 45 at most, whereafter you either bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One (see hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is One) or return to the consciousness of being someone in a world where everything seems separated.

In the latter, you return as the basic self, which serves the brain and thus everybody because the brain has no personal preferences. Consequently, you feel good. And to enhance this feeling, the brain keeps injecting you with shots of happiness. This after-effect of a state of not-knowing can last from a few seconds to several years. See more about that at the end of this article. And see how you can prolong the after-effect by applying hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

Being a servant, however, feels humiliating to the special self. It wants to be in control, so it tries to exclude anything unknown by quickly making a perception where everything that does not fit into its concepts of living in the now, for example, is excluded. But since exclusion is founded on separation, which is the root of all problems, excluding something does not make you present but distant. That is, of course, until you choose not to make a perception where everything that does not fit into your belief system is excluded. See hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

However, let us not get ahead of ourselves. You probably go back and forth between the consciousness of being someone definitive and a state of not-knowing* many times before you remain in the latter and forget about being someone at all.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks gladly admit that they nothing. Thus applying the empty breath, there is not anything to perceive the present moment as something. Hence you do not get the frustration of something but the bliss of nothing. Read here how to connect with the empty breath.

While you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. You will not, even for a brief moment, experience oneness. Nor will you experience it when that belief is undone because then you are no more. Besides, it takes more than one to experience something, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you try to return to a state of not-knowing* by replicating the last one, you will not enter it because what you intend to replicate is the past, and contrary to a state of not-knowing* they are perceived to be something. If you use second-hand knowledge of how to get the bliss, you become the special self, and since it is very serious about realising itself and a state of not-knowing* is selfless, you will not enter it.

That is until there is a willingness to forget being someone and thus accept the selfless guidance of, for example, the empty breath.* It resides in a gap between nothing and something unprocessed by the brain into an experience of something, so it remains nothing.

Any other duality hack, except the Enlightenment of that which is One, will also take you back one second to the emptiness from where the brain imagines something that Alexius’ Duality Hacks expose as nothing, so you are no longer in the frustration of something but in the bliss of nothing. Alexius’ Duality Hacks apply themselves when you keep reading them. That is, if you do not try to alter them so they fit into the experiences perceived as something.

Entering a state of not-knowing* only takes a second and happens automatically when you have lost all hope of fixing your problems because that makes the uncontrolled energy of them ignite a take-off into the empty breath* (see hack #5.1 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing).

Getting into a state of not-knowing is as easy as told, but since we all are in the habit of looking for a solution in the experiences we perceive as something, we may get lost in them and thus feel hopeless. Super because there is so much energy in hopelessness that, if unedited, will ignite a take-off into the empty breath,*  which brings you back to the bliss of nothing.

That which is One has no effect, nor is it caused by something, or has a shape, as that requires more than one. Consequently, since oneness is formless and therefore endless, anything that requires more than one, for example being sad, happy or blissful, is an illusion.

As already said, you cannot remain there for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, as when the experiences produced by the brain are not repeatedly acknowledged by someone as something, it falls into a coma. Hence you must either return to the consciousness of being someone or remain in the bliss of nothing until there is no awareness of this or anything else to hide that which cannot be realised, namely that which is One.

Your special perception of the world divided into good and evil makes you feel lonely because they are based on you being better than others and thus separated from them. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Most look for something outside of themselves, such as massage, to make them feel good. But the experience of something outside oneself is created inside, namely in the brain, which does not differentiate between inside or out.

Hence, all the experiences it produces only seem tangible if you believe in feeling them. But as you also are a fiction of the brain, you gladly confirm the experiences created by it are tangible as that seems to establish you as substantial and thus to exist.

That is why the experience of you as someone in a tangible world only can only be exposed as a hallucination if you are willing to have the belief in being someone undone. If having that willingness, this occurs when you keep reading Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Do not, however, expect them to save you or give you something because it takes more than one to do so, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless. But as they, therefore, do not result in something but nothing, they automatically hack the belief in being someone.

Hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is One does that once and for all. The hack you are reading, HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it will end does that over time. It helps you not be special but basic, so you do not look for something extraordinary but enjoy the illusion of a world defined by time and space while having the belief in being there undone.

*) In the following article, A state of not-knowing and the after-effect, there is more about a state of not-knowing, its duration, the return to the consciousness of being someone and what happens if you do not return. You can read a lot more about a state of not-knowing in the below hacks, where you also can read about the empty breath:

NOTE: This article is the first one of hack #5.2 The empty breath and the bliss of not believing to be someone.



To keep the brain going, thus what you believe in being, you must repeatedly talk with someone seen as separated from you. It makes no difference to the brain if the conversation seems internal or external because both ways confirm its world of separation to be real. But if not doing that for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most,* the brain falls into a coma, wherefore it cannot process more experiences of you as someone.

Being happy, we have no need to perceive our apparent different experiences to make a difference. Thus we are ready to have Alexius’ Duality Hacks bring us back to the nothingness from where the brain has rendered our experiences of being somebody substantial in a tangible world.
