Alexius in Wonderland

Updated January 23, 2023

Those who hear or feel the humming echoing oneness far away cannot use it to improve themselves or the world. But they can be used by it as a door to close the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one, so there is no experience to hide that which cannot be experienced, namely the formlessness of oneness. That does not mean they will be transformed because that requires more than one. Nor does it mean they will cease to exist because they have never existed because there is no more than oneness since it is formless, thus endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If a world where there seems to be more than one is unreal, but that which is One is real, it is impossible to be in a world where there is more than one. And yet, we appear to be there. However, one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One does not believe but pretends to be there, like when playing a computer game. That is why Alexius’ description below of the world standing still does not reflect reality but how Alexius experiences pretending to be where he is not. The same applies to listening to the echo of oneness or having other glimpses of Enlightenment.

THE WORLD STOOD STILL
The first time the world stood still was in Alexius’ teen years. He looked out the window and saw everything covered by snow. It was like the whiteness outside of him turned him white while Donovan’s Jennifer Juniper was playing in the background.

He forgot to participate in the story of time and space. The air, he perceived as so thin that there was no space between anything. And although he noticed the music from his speakers, the silence was so loud that all he heard was the echo of oneness.

Much later, on a walk along the sea, the echo of oneness was there again – and sometime later, when he was walking on a pedestrian street busy handing out flyers, the distant echo of oneness was so intense that even though people were moving around him, it was like there was no movement and no people. He did not know what was going on, nor did he try to figure it out because when you hear the echo of oneness, you do not need more.

After being accustomed to hearing the echo of oneness, he realised that this distant humming is what the words Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolise and that many people do not hear it because they expect those words to reveal a higher understanding. But there is no understanding get. Neither is there any need for it when you hear the distant humming that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolise. See Life has no secrets, if you want to learn how to do that.

I never do anything so-called spiritual. When I wake up in the mornings I go for a long walk, until I come to this point and return back home. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE PRIMORDIAL VIBRATION
The word guitar is a symbol of something that makes impressive sounds. But you do not sense those sounds when reading the word unless you have heard them before.

That is the same regarding Aum, Sohang or The Word of God. These words symbolise the distant humming of oneness. But they will not remind you of the unpronounceable vibration of oneness, nor will the subtle sound you can hear from a computer when you are close to it.

The distant humming of oneness hangs about a world where there seems to be more than one like an echo. It is the engine of it but not in the sense that it produces it. That is impossible because it echoes that which has no beginning and end, so it cannot create anything specific. Still, its energy is used to uphold the imagination of a world where there seems to be more than one, even though it is not in that fantasy – just like the dreamer’s energy makes it possible to have a dream but not to manifest the dreamer in the dream.

The vibration that ‘Aum’ and ‘Sohang’ symbolises is your launching pad to oneness.

Therefore, the echo of oneness is not for you if you dream about getting famous or rich or making the world a better place per a specific belief. This primordial vibration knows nothing to achieve or make better. On the contrary, it undoes everything conceivable, so there is not something to experience, thus nothing that seems to hide the formlessness of oneness.

Having glimpses of Enlightenment is like having an orgasm in the sense that you momentarily forget the body. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

TO EXPERIENCE SOMETHING OR NOT
The Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be experienced as that requires more than one. Therefore, the above is not about the Enlightenment of that which is One but about having glimpses of it. In this case, by hearing the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolise. You hear it when the definable world of the outward-facing senses is so far-off that the distant humming from the edge of the universe is the nearest.

But this is just one aspect of having glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. The other ones are striking visions of light, hearing the crispness of ethereal harmonies, tasting the sweetness of oneness, or feeling any of these expressions. However, since society is very focused on visual impact, you may only have heard of the visual aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One.

Suppose you stop perceiving one of these aspects as something of several elements. In that case, there is no separation to establish you as somebody definitive. Hence the Enlightenment of that which is One set in beyond the senses (see hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is One).

It is fun exploring the world of the outward-facing senses when you know it is make-believe. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

REALITY IS NEVER-ENDING. THUS EVERYTHING THAT ENDS IS UNREAL
Compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One or having glimpses of it, appearing to be someone in the world of the outward-facing senses feels like a distraction. But why not enjoy it? There is nothing to lose. You are not someone definitive, so you can pretend to be anybody in the world of the outward-facing senses.

If you are into concepts of love, you can perceive the world through glasses of love. And since it is all make-believe, you may as well pretend to be in wonderland. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation. Especially if you do it with the duality flow because, in that case, your wonderland is contrasted by sorrow, so you feel wonderful when you are sad. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE IS A TIMELESS JOURNEY WITHOUT DISTANCE TO THAT WHICH IS ONE
Metaphorically, you can say that what you experience via the inward-facing senses is a wall surrounding that which is One. The wall seems to have no substance. Yet it can be seen, heard, felt or tasted. Suppose you do not try to define this. In that case, the outward-facing senses have nothing to work with. Thus a black hole, with a thin frame of white light inside it and a rapidly spiralling bright light outside it, suddenly and very quickly sucks you into it.

However, the black hole has no end, so you do not reach oneness. No problem, there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless. So you never left it to experience a world where there seems to be more than one.

The inward and outward-facing senses, the Enlightenment and its glimpses

Updated January 23, 2023

Enlightenment can also be felt and heard in several degrees. AUM can open your inner ear.

There are no degrees of the Enlightenment of that which is One because it cannot be experienced. However,you can experience glimpses of it in various degrees depending on how much you shut off the outward-facing senses. You see, hear, feel and taste these glimpses via the inward-facing senses. To do that, you do not have to close your eyes or be in a particular place or position. You just focus less on the world of the outward senses. Read more about that here. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

ARE THERE DEGREES OF ENLIGHTENMENT?
The answer to the question is both yes and no.
In the Enlightenment of that which is One, everything happens simultaneously. Therefore, since there are no specific elements available to combine into something understandable, it is beyond the senses. Thus impossible to experience and therefore without degrees.

Nevertheless, you can have glimpses of Enlightenment in various degrees via the inward-facing senses regardless of the body’s state, how and where it is positioned and if you know anything about Enlightenment. It is merely a matter of not focusing on something specific. The more you do that, the less the substantial world of the outward-facing senses blocks the abstractness of the inward-facing senses.

However, like a movie trailer is not the movie, the glimpses of Enlightenment are not the Enlightenment of that which is One. But unlike a movie trailer which does not contain the whole film, glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One has it all. So when you stop distinguishing them, without any transition, the Enlightenment of that which is One set in.

It is as if it comes from out of nowhere through a gap that may look black (see the article The ins and outs of a black hole) to terminate your consciousness quickly.  Thus nothing is sucked through a black gap that is gone because there is no awareness to hide there is no more than that which is One. So if you want to hold onto being someone definitive, somewhere specific, thus denying the formlessness of oneness, you stop the extraction of consciousness by fearing it. Since that requires more than one, you are, without any transition, back in a world where there seems to be more than one.

It takes more than one to have a vision, so no matter how impressive it may be, it is not the Enlightenment of that which is One but a glimpse of it. It is comparable to a movie trailer, a sample of the whole, thus not undivided. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE OR GLIMPSES OF IT
Nobody can attest to you having been the Enlightenment of that which is One because it calls for more than one. For the same reason, you only have vague memories of nothing entering the void of antimatter in a gap of light. The memories pop up every time you have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, which can be visions of light, celestial music, shivering feelings of total emptiness or tastes of heavenly sweetness. Read more about that in The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them.

You only devote yourself to one of these aspects at a time but without hanging onto it. So if another replaces that aspect, you go with that. However, never try to mix them.

If you want to return to the Enlightenment of that which is One, you stop distinguishing the glimpses of the aspect you experience. Therefore, since separation is not confirmed, your experience stops. Without any transition, the Enlightenment of that which is One set in to erase all the thoughts used to imagine being outside of oneness.

Unlike the Enlightenment of that which is One, glimpses of it do not wipe out thoughts completely. But you forget to assign them with a specific meaning, thus moving lightly in the material world of the outward-facing senses. At the same time, glimpses of Enlightenment come to you from the abstractness of the inward-facing senses.

When that is over, the focus on the material world of the outward-facing senses is re-established. If you want to look special there, you probably claim to have been awakened by the glimpses, thus being someone who knows how to make the world a better place. But by using glimpses to highlight yourself as somebody instead of undoing the belief in being that, you are imprisoned by the glimpses, not set free.

The world of the outward-facing senses is experienced via seeing, hearing, feeling and tasting/smelling something perceived as material. The world of the inward-facing senses can also be seen, heard, felt and tasted. However, you do not get a sense of something tangible but abstract.

Depending on how much you use the inward-facing senses to perceive your experiences in the world of the outward-fencing senses, you have a pleasant day or glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. In the case of the latter, you still notice the world of the outward-fencing senses, but it does not mean much to you. In the case of the former, you are much aware of the world of the outward-facing senses. But it looks friendlier, and you feel more relaxed. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE INWARD AND OUTWARD-FACING SENSES
As the name suggests, the drive of the inward and the outward-facing senses is not the same. The outward-facing senses are for actively expanding what you appear to be and have. But you do not need that in the world of the inward-facing senses because it is abstract, so you are boundless. You can use that to soften your appearance in the world of the outward-facing senses or have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, for example, travelling through lucid worlds of light. That is effortless, but everything in the world of the outward-facing senses requires much effort.

Much devotion to the world of the inward-facing senses probably makes you spaced out in the world of the outward-facing senses. Yet, if you do not have to be present there, you can go with the flow of the inward-facing senses, as if the world outside you stands still. See Alexius in Wonderland.

However, you cannot tone down the outward-facing senses if you want to escape them because what you try to escape you enhance psychologically. On the other hand, the more you wish to get close to reality, the more the outward and inward-facing senses fade out, and the more you are on Highway One. It has no direction, so you are not going anywhere. But the belief in being somewhere goes away. Hence there does not appear to be something to hide that which is One.

But suppose you have to do something demanding in the world of the outward-facing senses. In that case, it is best to devote yourself to the outward-facing senses mainly so the abstractness of the inward-facing senses does not space you out but makes it easier to do something demanding joyfully.

Syncing the inward and outward-facing senses in the correct ratio per your present situation is less complicated if you leave it to the empty breath. See, The empty breath syncs the inward and outward-facing senses.

The body’s healing caused by partly being devoted to the inward-facing senses is a side effect that helps you not worry about its appearance and inevitable end. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE INWARD-FACING SENSES AND THE BODY
The inward-facing senses cannot heal your body. However, its abstractness sets the body free from the ideas of wellness you try to inflict on it. Hence the body gets the peace it needs to heal itself. It may not include genetically caused diseases, though. But since they do not generate fear due to the tranquillity of the inward-facing senses, it is easier to deal with them (see hack #4.3 The fake mix of physical and non-physical issues).

But suppose the body’s well-being is the purpose of devoting yourself to the inward-facing senses. In that case, you focus on something specific, so you do not enter the world of the inward-facing senses. Hence the body does not get the peace it needs to heal itself.

Like a moth cannot help but follow its attraction to the flame, even though it is going to end of it, the purpose of the inward-facing senses is to draw you into their abstract world to undo the belief in being someone definitive.

If you return from the Enlightenment of that which is One to the experience of being someone substantial, your appearance remains the same. That is because it has not been Enlightened. However, due to vague memories of the formlessness of oneness, you do not believe it is real. Hence you are to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE DOES NOT CHANGE ANYTHING
Visiting the Enlightenment of that which is One by momentarily forgetting what and where you appear to be may at first seem to be a process. As long as that is the case, the experience of you as someone definitive can be recalled. But since it takes more than one to be anything, the reestablished experience does not contain the Enlightenment of that which is One. So although you are to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, nothing has changed except you know there is no more than that which is One.

When the Enlightenment of that which is One does not seem to be a process, you are entirely beyond the senses. Hence there is no one to know about ever having been someone, wherefore there is no return to being a substantial being in a tangible world. Consequently, nobody seems to hide what always has been and always will be, namely, the formlessness of oneness. From this follows, nobody is aware of that since it takes more than one to be conscious of something.

People have extraordinary ideas about Enlightenment. Some think it is pure love, consciousness or the ability to see through all illusions. But seeing or being something requires more than one. Hence the Enlightenment they are dreaming about is not the Enlightenment of that which is One, but something to improve their life in a world where there seems to be more than one, thus fencing off that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen

Therefore, if somebody claims to have been transformed by Enlightenment into something better or higher, it is not the Enlightenment of that which is One, but glimpses of it that they use to promote themselves as a superhuman with no negative emotions, only love and compassion. Since everybody wants to be superhuman, it sounds compelling, so you may dismiss the Enlightenment of that which is One if it hits you because you did not become anything at all. And being nobody, you cannot share with anybody because that requires more than One, thus turning you into somebody.

IS THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE REQUIRED TO UNDO THE BELIEF IN BEING SOMEONE?
The Enlightenment of that which is One can be said to be the last step back to the formlessness of oneness. But as formlessness is endless, you have never left it. Thus it is not about going back but realise the belief in being definitive hides the formlessness of oneness.

As already mentioned, the Enlightenment of that which is One undoes that belief immediately. However, it can also be achieved over time while enjoying the world of the outward-facing senses. You can accomplish that by applying one or more of Alexius’ Duality Hacks except hack #6.

Glimpses of Enlightenment are comparable to the sneak peeks Alexius had in his childhood of his family’s Christmas tree when he looked through the door’s keyhole. He was in his normal world but had glimpses of something glorious.

Here the world of the inner senses are about to shift to bright white light, which is gonna extract all the info you have collected in order to appear as somebody and leave it at the edge at a black hole so that there is nobody to fall into the nothingness of that which is one. This is not compatible with appearing in a world, where there seems to be more than one, so if that is what you want, you better make sure the info making up your personality is not extracted or you know where to find it again. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This image could illustrate the last glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One before you give up being aware of something. There is no transition from having glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One and being sucked into it. And since it is one perpetual present, you do not know when it extracts all your thoughts about being someone so that nobody is sucked through a black gap and gracefully falls into that which One. Since that is incompatible with appearing as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you better stop the extraction of thoughts if you want to continue like someone definitive, for example, by fearing it. Thus you immediately appear as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

WHERE DO GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT COME FROM
Physically speaking, glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One seem to originate from a non-defined space behind the frequencies of thoughts near the pineal gland. It is probably here you perceive the world when you are in a state of not-knowing.

The same applies when you pretend to be a person or perceive everything in the world as symbols of oneness. The empty breath – sounding like sohang – is presumably picked up there as well, physically speaking.

You cannot know because you are blown out by those experiences. That is fine because focusing on the pineal will not bring about any of the above. Concentrating on something contracts the energy, so you feel boxed in as someone definitive. On the other hand, defocusing removes restrictions wherefore, you do not feel limited to being someone specific.

‘The empty breath’ syncs the inward and outward-facing senses

Updated February 2, 2023

Alexius Jorgensen in the bliss of not believing to be someone

It is not thoughts that prevent us from being in the bliss of nothing but the desire to accomplish something with them. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

NOTHING TWISTED INTO SOMETHING
It takes more than one to appear as someone, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless. Hence appearing as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy made from nothing, experienced by nobody.

That is not to say that oneness is nothing because it takes more than one to be anything. For the same reason, it is impossible to fantasise about more than one in oneness. Yet, it seems possible to sense more than one away from it. But since oneness is endless, there is nothing outside of it. Thus seeing something is a mirage. Maybe that is why science concludes that the world we believe in seeing consists of empty space.

Just like everything else sensed, the empty breath is invisible and colourless until the brain ascribes it to a specific shape and colour. But as the empty breath does not aspire to be something, the brain does not care to twist it into an object. Thus it remains invisible and colourless.

Not knowing what and where you are is the bliss of not believing to be someone

In the connectedness with the empty breath, the apparent difference between the opposing sides of the contrasts making up the experience of duality is cancelled out. Not in the sense that you do not register them anymore but that you do not perceive them to make a difference. Therefore, since there is no separation to attest to duality, you are in the bliss of not believing to be someone definitive.  Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE BLISS OF NOTHING
Though science seems to know that the experience of something is made from nothing, thus make-believe, they explore the experiences as if they are real. However, in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, we expose that the experience of something is fabricated from nothing by the brain, so it appears to exist. The experiences only seem real when perceived as something. If not, they are exposed as nothing. The easiest way to not perceive them as something is to go back in time to the nothingness that the brain twists into your everyday experience of something.

Since it has taken the brain one second to fabricate your recent experience, it only takes one second to go back to the nothingness it has twisted into something, thus the bliss of nothing. That happens when you connect with the empty breath because it resides in nothing. Connecting with it is not about being deeper, purer or balanced. Being something is part of the experience of being someone, and the empty breath is not part of that but the nothingness that this experience is fabricated from.

In other words, you connect with the empty breath when you do not organise thoughts and feelings into something specific but instead step into the complete uncontrolled chaos of thoughts and feelings to ignite a take-off into the empty breath

In the flow of not believing to be someone

Should you wonder who chooses to believe in being someone and who has programmed the brain to produce experiences that seem to confirm this belief or who are wondering about this, the answer is nobody. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

WHAT AND WHERE ARE THE INWARD AND OUTWARD-FACING SENSES
What you see, hear, feel and taste in the world of the inward and outward-facing senses are based on the same sensory system. Thus their different names do not mean they differ from each other, physically speaking. But they are different ways of experiencing the same frequencies of nothingness that the brain twists into experiences that seem to prove you are authentic if they are perceived as something.

In the case of the inward-facing senses, the experience of its world is abstract because the brain has not yet processed the frequencies of nothingness to appear as physical elements outside you. Thus it feels as if the world is inside you. But in the world of the outward-facing senses, the brain has completed processing nothing into something, so you appear as someone definitive in a tangible world outside of you.

However, since it takes more than one to experience something, and since there is no more than oneness, any experience is an illusion, whether from the outward or inward-facing senses.

It takes nobody to know where the inner senses are


The abstract world of the inward-facing senses is experienced when time and space are not entirely considered real. Ultimately speaking, though, these experiences from the inward-facing senses are not more real than those via the outward-facing senses because any experience requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Thus it is only in the context of the brain’s plot to deceive you into experiencing nothing as something that there is someone to experience an abstract world, lightly processed by the brain from the frequencies of nothingness and a substantial world, heavily processed by the brain from the same frequencies.

The abstract experiences of the inward-facing senses open up when you do not entirely believe in being someone definitive in the world of the outward-facing senses. But there is little left of this belief when you are in the world of the inward-facing senses. Otherwise, there would be nobody to experience the world of the inward-facing senses. In other words, when you appear to be nobody in the world of the inward-facing senses, you have not totally left the belief in being somebody. Nevertheless, you may initially feel scared by the abstractness of the inward-facing senses. But since this fear comes from the belief in being somebody and the empty breath undoes this belief, there is nothing to fear if you connect with it.

Not being someone specific feels as if you are nothing, which seems pretty discomforting until you realise that being empty, you are a vessel for the empty breath, which takes you into the high-frequency world of the inward-facing senses, where glimpses of Enlightenment become the base for experiencing the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE FEAR OF THE INWARD-FACING SENSES
You must constantly concentrate and focus on the world of outward-facing senses to make it appear real. It is the other way around in the world of the inward-facing senses. That is experienced when there is no effort to focus or concentrate.

As long as you intend to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is best to multitask between the inward and outward-facing senses, so you can focus when needed and space out when nothing is required from you.

However, you can only do that if you are willing not to always give your full attention to the structured world of the outward-facing senses but also go with the unstructured flow of the inward-facing senses. That may not seem very comforting, but it is the other way around. In the world of the outward-facing senses, we are always afraid of not making it, whereas we have nothing to live up to in the world of the inward-facing senses.

But we cannot remain in this abstract world if we want to go on in a world defined by time and space. Fortunately, the empty breath is an automatic gear shift between the outward and inward-facing senses, so we go back and forth between them per our present situation.

Alexius Jorgensen have an automatic synchronisation of the inner an outer senses


The empty breath synchronises the outward and inward-facing senses. Hence, we become indifferent to being somebody in the tangible world of the outward-facing senses and thus responsive to being nobody in the abstract world of the inward-facing senses. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius connected with the empty breath when he, as a child, every night devoted himself to the whereabouts of the breath, thus going to sleep in the bliss of nothing. However, others were talking so much about becoming something higher, so the bliss of nothing seemed foolish to bring about.

Thus he hid the emptiness by pretending to be something until he started writing Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings in 2012. But it was not before writing HACK #5, A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss, he named the way to the bliss of nothing as the empty breath.

THE EMPTY BREATH SYNCS THE INWARD AND OUTWARD-FACING SENSES
Even though you hide from the sun, it remains where it is – likewise, the empty breath. Therefore, the empty breath remains with us even briefly if we once connected with it. It does not know we do not feel connected because it is unaware that we believe we are separated beings in the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses.

Yet, the empty breath senses the stress from this belief, so it synchs it with the high-frequency world of the inward-facing senses. That is not because it is more peaceful than the world of the outward-facing senses. But because the stress in the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses does not seem disturbing in the high-frequency world of the inward-facing senses. Likewise, the body does not seem troublesome when the perception of it is coordinated with the inward-facing senses because the tensions experienced due to worries about the body’s condition vanishes. See also hack #4.3 The fake mix of physical and non-physical issues.

Connecting with the empty breath does not require meditation or other techniques based on exclusion, restraint and control. But neither does the connection require you not to be exclusive because if you stand by your unwillingness to include everything unedited, the uncontrolled energy of suppression ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

In other words, since the abstractness of the inward-facing senses syncs with the solidness of the outward-facing senses per what and where we appear to be, none of them seems to dominate. But it does not work if you suppress the involuntary movements, the ignition of the empty breath may bring about to make you fall into place with the inward and outward-facing senses. Therefore, follow your present, electric-like, physical and mental impulses to get this synchronisation. For example, if the shoulders tighten up, be ready for mental relaxation when they fall. Or, if feeling sad, be prepared to feel physically good from a wholesome breath.

Sometimes, something more extreme is needed to make you realise the senses have been synced, like when Alexius as a child, returned to his home after school, ranged the doorbell with blood on the head, and said, Who am I? He had been involved in an accident and had no idea about what and where he was. That remained, although his parents thought he soon returned to normal. However, being like they expected was something he pretended as he always had done but was unaware of until now. Read about pretence in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation, and read here about Alexius’ childhood.

You cannot help the empty breath with the synchronisation. Still, you can prevent yourself from interfering with it, for instance, by doing Nordic Walking for half an hour every day, applying heat to the eyes with RENPHO Eye Massager with Heat Compression before going to sleep and sleeping with far-infrared heating pads for the body.

It is essential to accept that although everything looks like before you were connected with the empty breath, nothing feels the same. At first, it may seem blander because the kicks from especially high experiences in the world of the outward-facing senses are gone. But then you realise that is because you do not split up the duality pairs in separate entities in connection with the empty breath.

Thus being in the duality flow, feeling high includes feeling down, and vice versa, so you feel complete regardless of going up or down. It literally feels like being the waves of the ocean, where you are neither up nor down but in the constant movement between opposites. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

There are many ways to appear in a world defined by time and space, but there is no way to leave it because you are not in it. Like within the context of such a world, a dreamer is not in their dream and, therefore, does not return to bed when the dream is over. Likewise, you do not return to the formlessness of oneness when your apparent life in a world defined by time and space is finished because you never left the formlessness of oneness.

APPENDIX
Since most resist being nobody, they are unwilling to undo the belief in being somebody. But if you acknowledge this, you confirm what you appear to be is make-believe. Thus you have the willingness to undo the belief in being somebody. See also Willingness not to exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

That does not mean you suddenly are gone, reborn or awakened. The story of Santa Claus does not change when you grow up. What changes is that we do not believe it is real anymore. However, there is one difference between the story of Santa Claus and the story of someone specific in a world defined by time and space. When the belief in the latter is undone or in the process of being it, you are not disappointed. Instead, you feel free to enjoy the story till it ends.

You can take breaks from the story by connecting with the empty breath, thus being in a state of not-knowing. And when not connected with the empty breath, it helps you live out the story by syncing the inward and outward-facing. Since this makes you indifferent to a specific interpretation of something, you are in the duality flow. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.


NOTES:

Being special and depressed, or basic and happy

Updated December 24, 2022

The special self wants to make selected ones feel unique, so they depend on it to be appreciated.

The special self is always looking for errors in its personality to correct, thus appearing in control. But the basic self does not consider itself in charge of anything. Instead, it sees itself as a servant of everything because it adjusts to the flow of thoughts coming from the brain, which is not about personal preferences but what is in the best interest of the whole.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Assuming you are in control, you are under enormous pressure, always looking for thoughts to compose stories where you, not the brain, are in charge.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Being the special self is not about what you do but the thoughts concerning it. Especially thoughts in the category of master and servant – like when you think you are the master of the remote control, your coffee machine, children or pets. Or if you have a boss that puts you down, you still seem to be on top by thinking that you could do it much better.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self always finds something about others that it judges wrong. Hence they become the imperfect background for its perfection.

When the special self perceives to fail, it takes on being secondary. Thus the failure does not seem to have been caused by itself but by somebody else.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self’s perception is synced with the stream of thoughts coming from the brain. Therefore, since it feels connected, it does not need to be or achieve something special to feel good. But the special self is out of sync with the flow. Therefore, since it feels disconnected, it looks for special moments in the past to replicate in the present to feel special.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You cannot avoid events you see as sad, but you can refrain from perceiving them like that. That naturally occurs for the basic self. Thus it has no need for special events to make it happy.

When a ball is coming your way, it´s a natural reflex to respond and following such reflexes is pure fun.

When a ball comes towards you, it is an automatic reflex to respond to it. Automatically following such reflexes is natural and invokes how easy it is to be the basic self. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Sometimes a doctor checks the function of a body by knocking on special points to see if the involuntary movements work. However, everything considered voluntary is also an automatic movement governed by the brain. Therefore, if you believe in being in charge of yourself, you have suppressed your reaction to everything that does not fit this belief. Therefore, since that requires much effort and it is effortless serving the brain, being a servant makes you feel free and happy.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If the special self discovers that others have interpreted something it did as wrong, it avoids feeling guilty by shouting, »Look what you made me do.«

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The experiences the brain produces to make you feel like someone can, in many ways, be compared to the news that Facebook generates for you. Based on the info Facebook has gathered about you, it collects what its artificial intelligence predicts you wish to see, regardless it is fake or not. However, unlike Facebook, the brain has all your info, so the experiences you get from it are based on you. Thus what you experience is what you are. That cannot be altered – only your perception of it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A world defined by time and space is a construction of thoughts compiled by the brain. But since it cannot manifest its fabrication, it has made a self that feels the experiences it produces, so it seems to confirm a world defined by time and space is real, which in return seems to prove the self is a substantial being in a tangible world. In other words, what and where you believe in being is the brain’s fantasy. But since there is nothing real to confirm the brain’s existence, nothing is making the fantasy of you as someone in a world defined by time and space – just like nobody is making a dream and nobody is in it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self manipulates others into admiring it to escape its self-hatred. When not succeeding, the special self considers letting go of something to reestablishes it as the one in control.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self needs to convince at least one person about how crucial it is, which it achieves by smothering someone with the kind of attention it senses, that is required to make that person feel chosen. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The special self needs to be part of something important, not to feel alone. So it checks all notifications on Facebook and makes sure to like what its friends write so that it will like it and be liked by them, and they are confirmed to be together in a group of extraordinary people. Of course, it only works if you believe there is something in cyberspace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You cannot escape the hell of the self-discipline required to uphold the perception of being special if you are afraid of losing something, which you are, as long as you believe to be and have something special.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you justify your unpleasant emotions with something judged as flawed in the world, your bothersome feelings are buried in a mental drama of fairness. For example, when you feel angry, it is obscured by the sad story you keep telling to establish you are unfairly treated by the world. Hence feeling angry has been removed from your awareness and replaced by a mental concept of being mistreated. This spin also hides that you fear the world will get back at you for blaming it for your negative emotions.

But this is too shameful to admit. So to save face when you feel attacked by the world, you repeat the story of being unfairly treated to prove you are innocent. However, to uphold your innocence, you must continuously suppress feeling selfish, greed, anger and envy. You do this by pointing out those attributes in others so they feel ashamed. You are very good at that, and your friends know it. Nevertheless, they do not expose you because they also look for someone to attack, so they feel off the hook. That is why they recognise it in you.

To hide that you and like-minded ones hate everybody, you meet in special groups where you hug and share in a collectively agreed way of being together. Yet, it is not feelings of love that connect them, but the wish to hide they hate each other. Naturally, nobody wants to acknowledge this, least of all do they want to talk about it in the group because if you do not censor yourself to speak and act within the language established as love by the group, or its mentor, you are expelled. And then you have nowhere to go to find relief from your despair.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To prevent the image of the special self from cracking, it is crucial not to feel one’s emotions. Therefore, since the special self suppresses them, it becomes so numb that it cannot feel anything. So instead, it invents stories about feelings that fit its self-perception. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Should you have conditioned yourself to feel relaxed when you hear a specific kind of music, you find yourself in a story where you know you are supposed to feel relaxed every time you hear this music. In other words, what you believe in feeling is a product of your story. And as most of what you believe in feeling rests on stories, you are hardly ever in touch with your emotions but with how you have conditioned yourself to respond to something. That suits the special self very well. It does not want to experience genuine feelings but how it is supposed to feel them when being what it imagines.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self likes to meet new people. However, not to get to know them but to answer their questions. That is a perfect opportunity to re-edit the story it has fabricated about itself to appear exciting.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In the past, the special self made a hateful story for perceiving the present, so it seems to confirm its past judgment of others as evil. And since the past, therefore, appears to repeat itself, the special self can rest assured in its perception of itself as good and others as bad.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The English language suits the special self because it is built upon the ‘I’ as primary and others as secondary. So you do not talk with others but to them. And when you speak about friends and yourself, you always start by mentioning yourself.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It takes time and effort to invent a spiritual self from which selected experiences are eliminated or changed to appear absent of power strivings, selfishness, greed, anger, negative thoughts or whatever you assume to be politically incorrect. It feels restricting, whereas you feel free when not altering or rejecting something in your perception to shape your image into something specific.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Nobody is unjustly treated in the brain’s script. It is all about being entertained by duality, which you are when perceiving your reaction to your experiences as it is what it isbecause that reveals your response is twofold. And since you are in a world of duality, that makes you feel complete

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self likes to hide that it is lonely by having others depend upon it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

What and where you appear to be in a computer game is designed by the game’s creator. You do not have the power to change that. But you can perceive it in sync with the plot or not. The latter is frustrating, and the former entertaining. The same applies to the tangible world, where you appear to be someone substantial. What and where you seem to be is made up of the brain. It cannot be changed – only your interpretation of it.

If that is in sync with the brain’s script, you feel entertained by the idea of being someone substantial in a tangible world, which is like going up and down on a rollercoaster. You scream of fear when going down and shout of joy when going up. One leads to the other. It is like two sides of a coin because everything comes in pairs in the brain’s script of duality.

However, the special self does not accept the interaction of opposites. On the contrary, its fundamental instinct is to keep them separated to divide the world into good and bad. In contrast, the basic self does not separate opposites, so it feels vitalised by their interaction, whereas the special self feels weakened by their separation.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The collaboration of the opposing sides in the duality pairs making up the world of duality is vitalising. But since the special self excludes the apparently dark side of the duality pairs in its perception of itself, duality does not seem stimulating but depressing. However, the special self fears that if it includes the darkness it has excluded, it will be devoured by it. Thus it prefers to keep spitting the duality pairs in distinct elements to keep the darkness away by looking positive.  

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since feelings tend to mess up the perception that the special self has made of itself as an independent and unique being, it wants to keep them at a distance. But as this collides with its need to show off as an open person, it lays the blame for fencing off its feelings on others, which it criticises for being closed, thus making it impossible for the special self to express its feelings.

Although the real reason for not expressing its feelings is that the special self does not know them, it shows off as an expert on emotions who is able to help others open up to themselves. However, what the special self claims to see are its own suppressed feelings (read more about that here).

On the other hand, the basic self has no special image to protect, thus, no feelings to hide.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Undoing the belief in being someone special is like stepping into the unknown. And since life cannot be known, you find it there. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The special self needs constant approval from others to feel alive. To get that, it often establishes a family, which it can manipulate into giving it the confirmation it needs. If that does not work as intended, the special self may pay a psychologist to ratify its uniqueness. But it does not realise how dependent it is on those supporting its perception of being independent.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self enjoys talking about feelings speculatively, »like do I really love this person?« But it does not love anybody because to uphold its perception of being in control, it avoids feelings of intimacy by being with people looking for a higher state of mind.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Every experience is make-believe – just like in a role-play. However, following the instructions of the game master is part of the fun. Likewise, believing to be someone in a world defined by time and space is quite entertaining when you do not try to add or subtract something from the instructions you get from the brain.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You can compare the basic self to a cat. It does not plan to do Pilates at a specific hour but, naturally, stretches out when its biological system tells it to do it. Nor does it attend special seminars to learn who it is or how to be transformed into something else. There is no desire to be anything but a cat.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If somebody triggers an old feeling of rejection in the special self, it first interprets it as an attack. Next, it justifies feeling rejected by the attack. Therefore, since feeling rejected seems to originate in the attacker, the special self concludes it does not come from itself. If the perceived attacker exposes this self-deception, the special self points out something from the past to make the attacker feel rejected. Hence the special self is off the hook and can rest assured that it is loved and the attacker is not.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Fear does not prevent you from going on when in sync with the unedited flow of thoughts. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The happiness that comes from being in sync with the brain can be compared to the joy you feel when singing along with a song you like. Not being in sync can be compared to feeling disturbed by the same music because you want to concentrate on something you perceive as better.

That said, it may seem frightening to be in sync with the brain’s script, but since you do not feel alone, fear does not prevent you from going on.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You do not appear in a physical world to learn something. Everything you encounter is made from empty space. The only purpose of your experiences, including those interpreted as spiritual, is to feel entertained by nothing disguised as something. Read more about that here.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is the counterpart of a feeling that defines it. For example, hate defines love. Consequently, you must sense your hatred to feel love. But since the special self excludes the unpleasant part of a duality pair, it has no hatred to define feeling in love. Therefore, since it does not know what love is, it reckons it feels love when it meets somebody whose psyche or body complies with its ideas of perfection.

Fortunately, this mistake is easily corrected by perceiving the assumed feeling of love as ‘it is what it is.’ That reveals love is coupled with hate and constantly interacting to define each other. Going with this twofoldness, you have a genuine feeling of love regardless of expectations being met.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The brain can be compared to Spotify in the sense that it has many playlists to choose from. But no matter which playlist you decide to stream, it will not bring happiness unless you are in sync with it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Feeling stressed by the brain’s stream of thoughts and trying to get peace through meditation does not work. But acknowledging the stress so it can be perceived as ‘it is what it is.’

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The flow of thoughts only seems speedy and confusing when you want to be independent of it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is nothing spontaneous about the basic self – like a violinist is in sync with the notes of the classical composition played, the basic self is in sync with the brain’s script. Neither the violinist nor the self has room for improvisation or regret because everything is already set.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Should you wonder if you are in sync with the brain’s libretto, you are out of sync because you have no doubts when in sync.

The basic self cannot be changed, but it can be perceived as special [draft]

Updated December 14, 2022

The multiplication of thoughts required to construct an image of you as an independent entails stress, thus, a tired body. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE BASIC AND SPECIAL SELF PLUS THE ROGUE CONSCIOUSNESS:
You are effortlessly synced with the basic self when not suppressing feelings by holding back the breath or altering its natural rhythm via yoga, for example. And since very few thoughts are required to maintain this synchronisation, they do not seem disturbing but encouraging.

That is, until the consciousness, the brain has installed in the basic self to be aware of itself, decides it knows better than its maker, and plots to change the basic self into a special one. However, shaping and maintaining a special self requires a more complicated construction of thoughts than the simple one accumulated by the brain to create and uphold the basic self.

Therefore, the rogue consciousness perceives one of the brain’s experiences so scary that fear makes you hold your breath long enough for thoughts to be imprisoned in the gap, from where they force their way out by multiplying themselves. Then, having escaped, they continue their frantic multiplication, which pleases the rogue consciousness because it needs lots of thoughts to make a special self come into being, appearing free from the brain.

But in a world of duality, all thoughts come in pairs of opposing elements to define each other, for example, right and wrong. Therefore, since you cannot have one without the other, you are never solely right or wrong but a bit of both. However, the rogue consciousness does not want the elements in the duality pairs to collaborate because it wants to set up a self that is solely good with no traces of evil.

To disconnect the opposing sides in the duality pairs into distinct elements, the rogue consciousness first imagines a judge determining which emotions are specifically good and evil. Then, an executioner punishes the bad ones by excluding them from the new self, so it looks uniquely good and has that feeling of being special.

When not interfering with the few thoughts, the brain keeps circulating for you to have a continuous experience of being a basic self, it feels entertaining being someone. But it feels frustrating if you make a perception of the basic self that twists it into a more special self. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But when good and evil are separated, they cannot define each other, as they do when collaborating as a duality pair. Thus you do not get a genuine but conceptualised experience of good and evil. Nevertheless, that suits the rogue consciousness fine because, with emotions cut off, the special self can mentally decide what good and evil feel like, thus being the master.

However, it is hard to constantly suppress genuine feelings to experience good and bad in a thought-up way – or twist experiences into a collectively agreed concept of having a good time. Besides, the suppressed emotions mess up the natural flow of the breath, thus the stream of thoughts used to keep the body healthy, wherefore the body seems inflicted with psychosomatic illnesses. So although the special self probably appears as good as planned, it does not genuinely feel good.

On the other hand, the basic self feels as good as bad because it does not break up the duality but goes with the interaction of their opposing elements. That does not mean that the basic self is perfect, but it feels complete in the duality flow regardless of appearance. Read about that in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, you must always choose something to uphold the illusion of separation. Therefore, not choosing anything, the illusion falls apart. That might be easier to do if you stick to being the basic self because it houses so much happiness that, sooner or later, you forget to choose. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE WORLD IS A CONSTRUCTION OF FRAGMENTED THOUGHTS
You can compare the formlessness of oneness to having just one thought, which is pure peace. But the harmony is over when that thought is divided into two thoughts: one that looks like a Person, land another one that looks the World. To uphold the illusion of more than one, the division goes on.

The thought called the World is divided into black-and-white aspects. And the thought called a Person is divided into a Judge and an Executioner. Thus the World causes a Person to have black or white experiences. Then a Judge deduces which ones are right and wrong, and the Executioner punishes the World for the wrong ones.

When that is carried out, the Person feels good because it is off the hook. Someone else is guilty of the mess that separation seems to entail. Read more about projections here. But since this arrangement sets other divisions in motion, the relief is short-lived. So, again and again, the interaction of Person, WorldJudge and Executioner is used to make someone else look bad and yourself good.

But since oneness is formless, it cannot be divided into more than one, except in fantasy. Thus the communication between the different elements of right and wrong is an internal dialogue in one Person. However, the Person projects parts of the fiction onto something perceived as outside of the Person. For example, what feels wrong inside the World of a Person is projected onto something perceived as evil in the World outside a Person, such as immigrants, the deep state or communists. The Judge may be projected on a god, parent, boss, or lover. And perhaps society is seen as the Executioner.

That said, it is impossible to fantasise about something specific because oneness is formless. Besides, since that means oneness is endless, there is nothing but that which is One. Therefore, the above explanation is as fictitious as anything involving more than one. However, in the context of the belief that there is more than one, Alexius makes up stories that may help you realise they are as fake as everything else experienced because it takes more than one to be aware of something.

With that in mind, we go on with the brain’s fantasy of you as someone in a world of duality:

The special self keeps returning to Facebook or similar media, where messages and likes confirm its specialness. But, if not continually established as unique, it starts doubting itself. Hence it loses its sense of control, which it fears more than anything else. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

BEING IN SYNC WITH DUALITY OR NOT:
What you believe in being is a construction of thoughts compiled by the brain into pairs of contrasting elements, such as happiness and sadness, to define each other. When in sync with the ongoing interaction of opposites in a duality pair, you do not want to separate them because the interaction makes you feel complete.

But you are not in sync with duality if negative thoughts are judged as wrong, thus excluded from the perception of yourself to appear solely positive. Without the awareness of negativity in yourself, there is nothing to define your positivity. Hence, nothing turns you on.

Being out of sync with duality occurs when the consciousness that the brain has installed in the self goes rogue and makes a special perception of your present experience where the elements in the duality pairs do not collaborate to define each other. Instead, they are separated into individual aspects, so you can decide to only feel love for someone and hate for another, for example.

However, since love is not defined by hatred anymore, you do not genuinely feel love. Instead, you cling to a thought-up version of it. The same applies to hate. And since you believe your single-minded notions are real, you clash with the world because it consists of duality pairs.

Fortunately, you can correct that by going with the interaction of love and hate. You do this by perceiving your single-minded idea of either love or hate as ‘it is what it is’ because this reveals love is in hate and vice versa (read more about that in hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy. But instead of accepting that, you probably accuse the brain of ruining love. However, since you are a product of the brain (read more about that here), your disapproval is a condemnation of yourself.

When the brain wants you to run, it uses the biological system to signal the body. It starts running regardless you are a basic or special self. The basic self, as always, feels entertained by following the brain’s commands. But the special self loathes the brain and its simple ideas of entertainment and thinks it knows better, even though it does not know who it is. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

TEMPTED TO BE SPECIAL:
When the consciousness of the basic self goes rogue, it responds like a spell checker to the calm stream of thoughts coming from the brain. It automatically interprets it so the self, which initially was made and administered by the brain, seems self-made, thus independent of the brain.

But since the rogue consciousness interpretations of the stream of thoughts are single-minded, thus out of sync with duality, the stream runs wild with ideas for getting more.

At first, this turbulence seems scary to the basic self, but the rogue consciousness convinces it that it is for the best because now you have endless possibilities. Besides, it promises that by being special, you are independent of the brain, thus able to arrange everything your way. That often convinces the basic self to trust the rogue consciousness’ corrections. However, it does not tell that you must spend many years in school learning to label its modifications to be unique in predefined ways.

Both the basic and the special self is a construction of thoughts. But whereas the basic self is simple, the special self is a complicated construction made to sow discord by insisting on being better. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In other words, appearing independent and special is complicated and exhausting, whereas being basic is uncomplicated and vitalising. Therefore, if you want to have a good time while appearing as someone in a world of duality, use one or more of Alexius’ Duality Hacks to enter a state of not-knowing. It wipes the slate clean of all misperceptions, thus restoring the basic self. Since it is relative to the brain, it is in sync with its experiences as they are and not as they could be if you were a special self following a specific philosophy. See, The basic self is relative to the brain, thus without an egoistic intention.

In other words, as the basic self, you have fun going with the duality flow, contrary to the special self, which is imprisoned by specific concepts like being positive. That said, once established as a special self, you probably keep going back and forth between being special and basic until you do not need to feel something specific but settle for the fullness of twofoldness.


NOTES:

Forgetting the world of the senses

Updated January 28, 2023

The transmission from outer to inner senses is not gradually but very abrupt and it can seem frightening in the moment you sense the world, as you know it, is gonna be erased. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no transmission from the world of the senses to the Enlightenment of that which is One. Thus you may feel scared when you sense that what you believe in being, without further warning, are about to be erased so that nothing passes through a gap that looks like a black hole where it is sucked into the formlessness of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Just like we have the outward-facing senses to see, hear, feel, smell and taste a tangible world, we have the inward-facing senses to see, hear, feel, smell and taste an abstract world. However, to use the inward-facing senses, the outward-facing ones must be more or less turned off. Read more about that here.

The world of the inward-facing senses refers to a world that is not experienced as outside of you, whereas the world of the outward-facing senses is experienced outside you. However, all experiences are make-believe.

If the inward-facing senses are intensely used, you have glimpses of  Enlightenment, while the outward-facing senses are in the background. When none of them is used, you are in the Enlightenment of that which is One. The first time this happened to Alexius, he had been driving a taxi for 15 hours and was so exhausted that he confused traffic lights for customers trying to hire a cab.

When he finally returned home from work, no energy was left to engage in the world of the senses. Hence the most known aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One activated, namely the ability to ‘see’ light. However, it was not a light comparable to anything in the world of the inward or outward-fencing senses. This light burned away everything definable, so there was not someone definitive to hide there never was or will be more than the formlessness of oneness. Read more about this aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One in the previous articles.

FOUR ASPECTS OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
Since the world generally focuses on seeable effects, the visual aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One is the most known. But the other facets also make you forget to focus on something definable, so you, as nobody, are drawn into the formlessness of oneness.

Whatever aspect of the Enlightenment you naturally are attracted depends on your preferences as someone definitive. However, it is not about seeing, hearing, feeling or tasting the Enlightenment of that which is One but being so devoted to one of these experiences that your guards are down, and the Enlightenment of that which is One can erase all memories of being someone, so nothing is united with oneness, which never was left because that requires more than one.

In deep sleep or great exhaustion, you do not perceive differences to make a difference, which is the invitation, the Enlightenment of that which is One waits for. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE AUDIO ASPECT OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
Soon after, he had bid welcome the visual aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One, ethereal harmonies sounding like bells, much crisper and softer than the mundane ones, came to him. As long as they can be heard as different sounds, they are glimpses of Enlightenment experienced via the inward-facing senses. But when they do not differ from each other, you are in the Enlightenment of that which is One, which is beyond the senses.

Regarding entering the visual aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One, Alexius had no discomfort leaving the senses behind because he was too exhausted to notice it. The musical aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One, he entered a deep sleep, where the concept of an ‘I’ is gone. Hence there was nobody to hold onto the world of the senses. Read more about the sound of Enlightenment here.

Always on the run from something to something better, so that you do not see, there is nothing better than that which is you since it is formless, thus endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The desire to escape that which is One makes you hang onto the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. That is until you realise, it is yourself that you want to escape, because that which is you is no different from that which is One.

THE TASTE ASPECT OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
The taste of oneness is like a flavour of milk and honey with a hint of liquorice or strawberry. Having samples of it was not without discomfort for Alexius. His body reacted like it was attacked and panicked by making vomit reflexes. But when he did not try to escape it, the panic turned out to be a lid on a jug of a smoothie-like texture that some scriptures call the nectar of life. In Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, it is called the taste of oneness. Read more about the sweetness of oneness here.

Since the Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be experienced, the following regarding the taste of oneness should not be taken literally but metaphorically. When the transparent sweet flavour is defined as something familiar, it is a glimpse of Enlightenment. Hence something experienced with the inward-facing senses. But when it becomes an aroma without taste, it is beyond the world of the senses, thus in the Enlightenment of that which is One. However, it was not before Alexius had had this tasteless sweetness several times that he realised he must have bid welcome the taste of Enlightenment because memories started popping up of a shapeless taste.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In that which is One, you are not anything at all, not even the bubbling sense of oneness or the bliss of nothing. It is impossible to realise what oneness is because that requires more than one. However, it does not mean that which is you is finished. It never ends because it is no different from oneness which is formless, thus endless. It is only the belief in being someone substantial in a world where there seems to be more than one that ends. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

FORGETTING TO FEEL THE WORLD OF THE SENSES
The feeling aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One did not come easy to Alexius. It took many years of discomfort, vomiting, being hospitalised and sometimes losing the ability to balance – to mention a few disturbing things he encountered, having glimpses of it. But, no worries, when Alexius much later updated this article, he had forgotten all about that.

However, he still remembers the breakthrough. One night, Alexius was in such deep sleep that he completely died from the world of the senses. Hence the Enlightenment of that which is One was bid welcome. However, not in a visual but emotional way. When he almost departed the world of the outward-fencing senses, there was a moment of discomfort from not sensing his body separated from the bed. But then, it was as if everything was his body, which was electric and full of tiny bubbles.

Next, when he departed the senses altogether, the feeling was shapeless, thus not tangible. Therefore, since nothing established Alexius as somebody, there was nobody to experience the feeling of oneness. In other words, what you read is based on vague memories that Alexius has picked up from what feels very far away and right here.

Unlike in a world defined by time and space, where there seem to be different events happening in time sequences, there was no time. Everything was happening simultaneously. It was and is one perpetual present of bubbles moving so fast that there only was One. But returning to a world defined by time and space, it seemed to be a sequence of events over a long time ago.

Alexius’ Enlightened Non Teachings discerns between the Enlightenment of that which is One and glimpses of it. The former cannot be experienced and the latter is an experience of Enlightenment comparable to watching a movie trailer, which means it is not the Enlightenment of that which is One but a sample of it.

We all know, the world presented to us in a set of virtual reality glasses is not real. Yet most have forgotten, that neither is the world presented to us by the senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

We all know that the world experienced in a set of virtual reality glasses is unreal. Yet that applies to everything experienced because it requires more than one to be aware of something, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE VERSUS GLIMPSES OF IT
The above is about how Alexius forgot the world of the senses, thus getting to four aspects of the Enlightenment of that which is One. However, that is something that occurs daily. Actually, the Enlightenment of that which is One is not an experience because it requires more than one to be aware of something. But you can experience glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One daily. For an in-depth explanation of glimpses, check out The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them.

The more the outward-facing senses are turned off, the less their definable appearances prevent you from being in the abstract world of the inward-facing senses with glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One.

But the experience of this world full of lucid light, ethereal music, sweet nectar or transparent bubbles disappears if the outward-facing senses are entirely turned off, as that leaves nothing to define what you see in the world of the inward-facing senses. Hence there are no glimpses to experience nor somebody specific to experience them. Thus the Enlightenment of that which is One set in.

APPENDIX
When the body’s biological system does not function anymore, the world of the outward-facing senses cannot be experienced. But for almost half an hour, you remain in the world of the inward-facing senses,.

But since it is only in the world of the outward-facing senses, the belief in being someone specific can be upheld, nobody seems to die if you do not try to recreate the memories of being someone in the world of the outward-facing senses.

Gracefully falling into the formlessness of oneness

Updated January 14, 2023

Painting with reflections of light on my iPhone

Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings talks about two kinds of Enlightenment, namely, the Enlightenment of that which is One and glimpses of it. The latter can be experienced via the inward-facing senses when the outward ones are partly closed. On the other hand, the Enlightenment of that which is One requires both the inward and outward-facing closed, and it cannot be experienced as that calls more than One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

ONE WHO IS TO BE COMPARED TO THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
After a long, intense night of driving a taxi many years ago, Alexius forgot what and where he was, so he was sucked into the Enlightenment of that which is One. But since it requires more than one to be conscious of something, he has not experienced the Enlightenment of that which is One. However, his faint memories of light so powerful that nothing can be seen were triggered when he later read part of The New Testament and Bhagavad Gita.

The visual aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One is literally light, so it is not symbolic when Jesus said: »When your eyes become single, your whole body will be full of light,« or when St. Paul said he was blinded by light daily, or Arjuna said to Krishna when he was initiated: »It is brighter than thousands of suns. I have become the destroyer of worlds …«

A dream can be compared to a simulated world meanwhile layered on top that which is real. As long as you believe the simulated world is real, it seems to cover that which is not simulated.

The translations of both The New Testament and Bhagavad Gita differ from translator to translator, and as the above quotes are from memory, they may not be the exact words in your addition. But it does not matter because regardless of how you speak about it, the Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be described. In other words, what is said about it in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings should not be taken as the real thing, nor as pointers towards it because it requires more than one.

Imagine you want to describe an orange to somebody who has never seen or tasted an orange. For example, you say it has a colour like an orange sunset, is round like a ball, and tastes like sweetened water. But the person you have given this description will never discover what an orange is by drinking sweet water from a rounded cup at sunset.

You have to see and taste it yourself to know what it is. However, in the context of the Enlightenment of that which is One, you will never know what it is because a person cannot be Enlightened. You as a person are erased in the Enlightenment of that which is One. Thus there is nobody to experience it. That is why Alexius is not enlightened but to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.

In the Enlightenment of that which is One, the world is gone – not because it has been destroyed, but because it was never there, except in fantasy. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

And it is also why he does not search for the meaning of life. He knows there is no more than that which is One, so there is no life in a world where it seems to be more than one. Besides, searching for something requires more than one, so whatever you think you realise is an illusion.

One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One has nothing to regret because there is no belief in being an ‘I’ deciding what to do, so there is nobody to forgive, nor to protect and preserve. Hence the ‘I’ is a tool like the legs, hands and eyes that can be used to pretend you are someone definitive. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

Alexius, for example, has pretended to be a child, teenager, taxi driver, monk, husband, daddy, adult, businessman, millionaire, designer, teacher, photographer and recently non-teacher. See more of his appearances in Alexius, The Man.

Regarding the Enlightenment of that which is One, it is best to forget everything you have ever heard or read about it – including what is said in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Any idea of how it looks is wrong. It has no shape. Yet, if you look for something intangible, you still look for something. But if you do not believe to be someone definitive – or do not care about it – there does not seem to be something hiding that which cannot be seen, heard, felt or tasted.

If you fear the destructive powers of the world, you will probably fear the enlightenment of that which is one, as its light will destroy every definable feature of you just like that. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you fear the destructive powers of the world, you may also fear the Enlightenment of that which is One because it relentlessly extracts every definable feature of what you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

THE FEAR OF ENLIGHTENMENT
When the cats living with Alexius are asleep, he cannot see what they are dreaming, but based on their sudden movements, sometimes, it looks like they have a nightmare. If that which is One could see the stress in those imagining being in a world where there seems to be more than one, it probably draws the same conclusion. But just like Alexius cannot see the dreams of his cats, neither can oneness see the imaginary world of those who believe in seeing more than One.

Even if oneness could sense this fantasy, it would not stop your imagination of something because oneness cannot be seen, and you may not be ready not to see anything. Thus oneness has made a powerful mechanism that extracts all experiences from those who welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One by not focusing on something.

Since there are four ways to sense a world where there seems to be more than one, there are also four ways to stop sensing it. In other words, there are four aspects of the Enlightenment of that which is One: light, sound, feeling and taste. However, this article is about the most common aspect, namely light. Read about the other in the following article.

The light is much more potent than anything in the dream. An atomic bomb is nothing compared to its strength. However, this light does not illuminate anything and is neither opaque nor transparent but so intense that it cannot be apprehended.

To bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one all thoughts made to fabricate an image of you as something definable must be left at the edge of a black hole, so that there is nothing for the bright white light to suck through a black hole into that which is one. This will of course seems very frightening if you want to remain someone definable in a world, where there seems to be more than one, and if so chances are that you out of desperation will define the bright white light and/or the black hole as something, and so you are back in a definable world. If you leave all thoughts behind at the edge of the black hole and end up being no different from that which is one, you can pick up all the thoughts again – in linear time – within a few minutes and return as someone in a world, where there seems to be more than one.

The Enlightenment of that which One sucks out all thoughts making up the experience of being someone. Then it leaves them at the edge of a black gap, and the nothingness of you falls gracefully through it into the formlessness of oneness. That is terrifying if you want to uphold the belief in being someone definitive. No worries, you can retrieve the thought construction left at the edge of the black hole, which is done by comparing the black gap to something familiar, the typical image of a black hole, for example. That makes the Enlightenment of that which is One becomes definable, and as it is only possible in a definable world, you appear to be back as someone in a world defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Without further notice, the light relentlessly and most powerfully wipe out every definable feature that makes up your identity in the fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one. That is done so fast and efficiently that there is nobody to know you once were somebody, thus nobody to fear obliteration and the free-fall through a black gap in the light into the formlessness of oneness.

But if you have been used to upholding an image of yourself as good by projecting your shit onto others, you have a deep-rooted fear of retaliation. Thus you see the light as an avenger, you fight by shaping your despair so it seems powerful enough to smash the light into pieces. Hence you are back in the fantasy about a world where there seems to be more than one.

Since there is no more than that which is One, and it requires more than one to wake up, it is impossible. The same applies to reading this article and Alexius having written it. That which we are is not in a world where there seems to be more than one. One could say we are dreaming about it. However, this is a metaphor because, in reality, it takes more than one to dream about something.

That said, you cannot smash the light, and it does not destroy you because you do not exist. That is why nothing is terminated but the belief in being someone definitive, which is like undoing the belief in Santa Claus. It is not dangerous. In other words, there is nothing to fear when not caring about your image. Thus nothing to lose from being nobody in a free-fall through a black gap into the formlessness of oneness. Although this seems logical, we probably fight it several times before we get it emotionally and do not stop falling into the formlessness of oneness.

APPENDIX:
It may seem unclear if you have to be nobody to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One or that it is something it takes care of.

Unfortunately, Alexius cannot clarify that. There is no transition from a world where there seems to be more than one to the Enlightenment of that which is One, so he does not know when it sets in. There are vague memories of chaos inside him just before it sets in. But there is no chaos, peace or anything else in the Enlightenment of that which is One, as that requires more than one. For the same reason, nothing is taken away but the illusion of more than one.

Willingness not to exclude but to include, undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one

Updated February 2, 2023

The more inclusive you are, the less apparent difference between inside and outside seems to make a difference. So eventually, there is no experience of a world outside you – neither inside because, without an outside, there is no inside. In other words, the fantasy of being someone is over when not excluding thoughts and feelings by justifying them with a world perceived to be outside of you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

ON THE PATH OF INCLUSIVENESS TO THE BLISS OF NOTHING
The belief in being someone definitive is often established by telling stories where we are the main character making everything right. Or we refer to stories of others in which we appear to make a difference.

The complete inclusion of thoughts and feelings cancels out the idea of within and without. Hence there is no difference to hide the formlessness of oneness.

The conclusion is not that you must stop telling stories about your achievements if you want the bliss of not being someone definitive. On the contrary, Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not about stopping or avoiding something because that involves exclusion, wherefore the belief in being definitive is enhanced. Neither are they about transforming sex or anything else into something higher but including everything unedited, because that leaves nothing to define you as someone definitive, wherefore you are in the bliss of nothing.

However, if you are like most people, you want to feel the happiness imagined to come from being something specific, such as a unique parent, spouse or spiritual person. Hence you exclude everything from your personality that does not fit your concepts of perfection. Fortunately, you do not have to change this pattern to get the bliss of nothing instead of the disappointment of something. If you acknowledge that you are unwilling to include everything, you include the moment as it is, thus on the path of inclusiveness to the bliss of nothing.

Be aware that this explanation and the others in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings are inaccurate. The appearance of someone definitive is not explainable. It is impossible because oneness is formless, thus, endless.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks do not expand the consciousness. They neither increase nor improve anything. Instead, they undo the belief that there is more than that which is One.

Even though this pic is not the real thing but a simulation of people on the beach, and even though the simulation is twisted it is a confirmation of what is simulated, because without it the simulation would not be possible.

Even though this image is not the real thing but a twisted simulation of people on the beach, it confirms what it simulates because the twisted simulation would not be possible without it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

LIFE IS ALL-INCLUSIVE:
You cannot remain as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space without excluding something specific from your personality because it is determined by what you exclude. For example, if you exclude feeling inferior by justifying it with the world perceived outside of you, its flaws seem to define you as superior.

Should you lose your self-control and express unfortunate traits, supposed to define somebody else, you claim you were not yourself and that somebody else made you do it. In this way your superiority is ensured.

However, since life is all-inclusive, you have excluded it. Therefore, if you want to correct it, you must be all-inclusive, which you probably hold off so you can remain important. Fortunately, it is not a problem if you accept your unwillingness to be inclusive because that confirms you are willing to include. But not even this acceptance is necessary to undo your exclusion from life. By acknowledging that you resist life, you establish a relation to it. And since life is inclusive, you are on the track of inclusiveness.

Rage is a reminder of what you have excluded from yourself. Thus it is a confirmation of the formlessness of life, as without it you could not imagine to exclude anything.

Even if you have excluded yourself from the formlessness of life, you have not lost it because, without it, you could not imagine being separated from it as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. Therefore, if you do not look at your appearance to enhance the image of being definitive, it reminds you of the formlessness of life.

That does not mean that there is life in what and where you experience being. Life is that which is One, and it takes more than one to experience something, so everything experienced is lifeless. But it means that even though the formlessness of life is not in what and where you appear to be, it empowers your experience of it – just like electricity is not in the article you read, although it empowers the electronic media displaying it.

Therefore, since all your experiences symbolise the life empowering them, it is not a matter of avoiding anything. See hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of oneness. Pain, frustration, jealousy, and death, for example, confirm life just as much as love and other so-called positive experiences.

You exist nowhere but in dreams, and they are not real

Updated February 6, 2023

You are a person in a dreamscape.

The photo you believe to see is not the one Alexius has published. Ultimately he does not exist, nor do you or the picture. But within the context where you, Alexius and the photo are experienced to be real, all experiences are fabricated by the brain. Thus the image you see is made by your brain’s version of Alexius’s picture. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The world we see on the screen in a cinema is made from frequencies of light projected from somewhere else onto a flat screen. We do not see the frequencies nor experience the world they simulate on the screen as flat. Actually, we do not see anything. What we believe in seeing is fabricated by the brain. Read more about that in Eyes do not see.

Nowadays, as most movies are digitized and often seen on a computer, it may not be correct to say that the world on the screen consists of nothing but frequencies. In that case it is more correct to say, that the world we experience to see on the screen is fabricated from the digital info reaching your eyes. As this consists of nothing but zeros and ones in different combinations, it makes no sense to us before the brain translates it.

In other words, the dimensional world we experience seeing in a movie is generated from frequencies of light or digital info by the brain. At least, that is what it claims. But it is just another one of the stories it makes up to make you believe you are real. Read more about the brain setup in Where to find the bliss of the empty breath.

When you see and/or feel the body, it is the same story as when you experience a dimensional world in a movie on a flat-screen. The body is not substantial. It is not there at all – nor are the frequencies of light – or pure info if you prefer the digital version in the above explanation. It is empty space in which the brain claims to see something, so it, like a magician, can twist nothing into something to entertain the self, also created from nothing, with a glamorous show in which it seems to be a substantial being in a material world.*

Alexius’ Duality Hacks functions only within in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, they must be forgotten to undo the belief that there is more than that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The frequencies the brain base its story about a tangible world upon, are imagined. Nothing seen is real, as it takes more than one to be aware of something and reality is that which is One.

For the same reason, nobody has created a world where there seems to be more than one. It is an illusion, as scince says, made of empty space.

Since Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings are part of this, they are, like anything else experienced, a fantasy. In other words, they are not the truth but fantasies of how to expose the tricks of the brain so the belief in being someone experiencing them can be undone.

Believing to be someone in this show is just as foolish as, within the context of it, thinking you are someone in a dream. It is impossible. The dream is insubstantial, and you are substantial. Likewise, that which is you is not in a material world. However, metaphorically, you could say it is dreaming about being someone in the magic show of the brain.

Within the context of this dream, it is a waste of time trying to improve it. You are not the director. The brain is in charge. And just like you need to follow the rules in a computer game to feel entertained by it, you must be in sync with the brain to feel amused by its tricks. Doing that is easy when you know that to appear in its world is like being in a dream. You are not there. It is something you pretend.

Playing a game is more fun when following its rules instead of spending time trying to change them into what you consider to be more fair per socialism or whatnot.

Even though this rendering of a sunset does not look like a ‘real’ sunset, memories of an evening that you have conditioned yourself to interpret as real will probably pop up and take over, so the translation of the frequencies hitting your eyes are adjusted to what you believe is real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You use empty space as a zero fill and imagine someone you pretend to be in it. For example, Alexius pretends to be a non-teacher and a non-student. But he has pretended many other things. Here you can see some of the personalities Alexius has pretended to be.

You can also use hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive in combination with other duality hacks to tone down the hopelessness and desperation that may set in when it is exposed that what you believe in being is fictional and not factual. HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end is directed explicitly towards enjoying the belief in being someone while having it undone.

If you want to speed it up the undoing of the belief in being someone substantial, you can connect with the empty breath. It automatically syncs the world of the inner and outward-facing senses (see The empty breath syncs the inward and outward-facing senses) so that the abstractness of the inward-facing senses becomes the basis for perceiving the solidness of the outward-facing senses. Hence you seem less substantial.

[√] Pretending is a way to reality

Updated February 7, 2023

Should you believe you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, you can undo this belief by pretending to be there because where you pretend to be, you are not. However, unconsciously, everybody is already doing it.

SAMPLES OF UNCONSCIOUSLY PRETENDING TO BE SOMEONE DEFINITIVE
When you look at a new home, you may picture what kind of people used to live there and imagine what type of person you could be if you moved in.

At work, you may pretend to be someone who fits into the environment socially and professionally. But when not at work, you probably pretend to be your own. And going to the disco, you most likely appear as a party-goer.

If your kids are worried, you pretend everything is fine, and if they are naughty, you pretend something terrible will happen.

Being attracted by the look or the vibe of someone, you pretend the other one has exactly the personality that matches yours or that you are soulmates.

Making a pass on someone, you adjust your behaviour per what you believe will turn the other on so you can pretend to be that special person.

Maybe you imagine, while you read this, what kind of person you should pretend to be if using or rejecting Alexius’ Duality Hacks.

Since pretending to be someone is something everybody already does but have forgot, hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation is about being aware of it.

As a musician, you quickly learn how to pretend what is needed to remain successful. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A SAMPLE OF CONSCIOUS PRETENDING …
… that you probably already know. You have sex with your spouse, but only your body is there. You fantasise about being with somebody else while you pretend to be with your spouse.

APPEARING TO BE SOMEONE DEFINITIVE IS FUN WHEN IT IS PRETENCE
You might be aware that you pretend to be what you are not in the above encounters. However, you are probably unaware that, like in role-play, everything is pretence. But if you be aware of it, you know what and where you appear to be is fictional. Thus you feel entertained by pretending to be someone in the fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one.

In other words, when you know the world is virtual, you are aware that the energetic people in an advertisement, the glamourous rockstar on the stage, or the beautiful people on social media is pretence. Thus, you do not look for authenticity but entertainment from pretending to be what you are not. And since you already know how to pretend to be a person in a make-believe world – think about when you are on a dating site or social media, playing a game or an air guitar – this is easy.

PRETENDING IS NEITHER BAD NOR GOOD
You may think pretending is bad and you better stop acting and find your real self to express that.

First of all: That which is you has nothing to express. It is formless, so there is nothing else, thus no one to communicate with. Secondly: The formlessness of that which is you cannot be found in a world defined by time and space. Nothing can be found in such a world but illusions, as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is you.

Pretending is neither bad nor good. It is just a tool. You cannot be in the illusionary world of a video game, a movie, a book or a dream, but you can pretend to be there. But whether you believe or pretend to be in the world of a book, it takes the same course – likewise, in a world where there seems to be more than one. The difference between believing and pretending is that you feel entertained regardless of the outcome in the latter case.

PRETENDING TO BE WHAT AND WHERE YOU ARE IS ENTERTAINING
It requires much control to uphold the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. If you are fed up with that, you pretend to be someone, which is fun because it requires no self-restraint. Besides, what you pretend to be, you are not. So the more you pretend to be someone, the less there is someone to hide, there never was or will be more than that which is One.

Pretending to be someone definitive is a relief

Updated February 7, 2023

On vacation in a foreign country, you appear different because you pretend to be a tourist exploring another world. Likewise, what you seem to be in a world defined by time and space. It is not that which is you but something you pretend to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When an electric bulb breaks down, it cannot illuminate something. So if the bulb was identified with that, its life is over. But if the bulb did not believe but pretended to be an entity illuminating something, life goes on because what you pretend to be, you are not. Thus it remains the power that made it possible to pretend to be someone lighting up something, namely electricity. Read more about electricity as a metaphor for life here.

Likewise, you do not last if believing in being someone definitive because everything definable has an end. But, on the other hand, if you pretend to be someone specific, it is only what you pretend to be that ends, like in roleplay.

However, you must be familiar with pretending to be someone definitive before your specific role is over. Otherwise, you will hang onto who you believe in being when you sense it is about to end.

So, in the context of the above metaphor, when a bulb cannot illuminate something anymore, it is as if life is over if it was identified with that. But if it has approved that it is not what it appears to be but what makes it possible to pretend it, nothing real ends when the bulb finishes pretending to be what it is not because the electricity that made it possible remains.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Although electricity makes it possible to experience this article on electronic media, it is not in the article. Likewise, there is no life in a world defined by time and space, although life makes it possible to experience such a world.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Whether you perceive yourself as mundane or spiritual, you cannot return to the formlessness of life because it has no room for something specific. But if you pretend to be ordinary or spiritual, you do not need to return to the formlessness of life because what you pretend to be, you are not.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Now you as an entity defined by time and space falls apart.

When the body stops functioning, you fall apart as someone definitive. If you do not fight it, what you believe in being is exposed as nothing. Thus there does not appear to be something hiding, there never was or will be anything but the formlessness of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

What you appear to think, feel, and act when you believe in being someone definitive is the same when you pretend it, except politically incorrect feelings are not suppressed. That is because when you pretend to feel something, the apparent difference between good and bad is not perceived to make a difference.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you do not believe in being in a world defined by time and space, it is seen as a comedy in which you have fun pretending to be someone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Like the recording on a protected compact disc cannot be extended, oneness cannot be expanded into more than one. Not because oneness is protected but because it is formless, thus endless, so there is no more than that which is One.

That is why you deceive yourself when you believe in a world where there seems to be more than one. Fortunately, your mistake is easily corrected if you pretend to be there because where you pretend to be, you are not.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Scientists have not discovered the origin of the world because there is none. It does not exist. That is why they cannot find dark matter, which they claim is the missing link in proving the world’s existence. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Nobody in a computer game can touch you, regardless of how good the graphics are. So if you feel affected by a game, it happens within you. Forgetting this, the fastest way to return to reality is to turn off the game. But what is perceived as real is as virtual as a computer game. The experience of being someone, whether mundane or spiritual, is make-believe. If it scares you to turn off that belief, you can do it while you enjoy it by pretending to be someone because what you pretend to be, you are not.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Interaction is the name of the game if a virtual world is to appear authentic. But communication is founded on what you imagine others think. Hence you interact with a fantasy made by you, and since what you believe in being is based on this, you are a fantasy as well. In other words, what you appear to be is make-believe.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You stopped believing in the magic of Santa Claus when you grew up, but still think you are someone in a world defined by time and space, although it does not make you feel fabulous. Fortunately, not believing but pretending to be someone there feels as wondrous as when you get presents from Santa.

Having fun pretending to be what you are not, there is no need to be confirmed by others as genuine. Thus you can enjoy all the spectacular illusions of a world defined by time and space.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The belief that you are someone definitive who experiences something specific seems to hide that there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness. However, this belief corrects itself the more you pretend to be someone definitive because that confirms you are nobody.

Fortunately, this is already so. What you appear to be is empty space. That is why nothing about your appearance in a world defined by time and space needs to be changed or transformed. On the contrary, changes enhance the belief that you are someone definitive.

Thus undoing this belief is not about opening up or surrendering to a higher power but being nobody, which you already are, and you confirm by pretending to be somebody because what you pretend to be, you are not.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Metaphorically, the universe is a shadow of oneness. But since a shadow cannot give you anything, what you believe in getting from the world is imagined. So why not accept that and have fun being what you are not, namely someone in a shadow world? You have nothing to lose because it is make-believe.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In a virtual world, you cannot realise what is real. But you can realise being there is unreal, thus a pretence.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you revolt against your parents, the perception of yourself is founded on how you judge them. Therefore, since you become an anti-version of them, you and your parents are two sides of the same coin. The same applies to being detached from the world. Again, it is based on what you avoid.

In other words, you remain part of what you reject. But not if it is something you pretend because what you pretend to be, you are not.

»When I was little, I thought the moon was following me when I was in the car.« From teenager Post #11156 (from the internet):

As a grown-up, we know the above experience is incorrect. Thus we automatically correct it and similar ones, like a street getting narrower at the end, or the world looking flat. However, if we have not become accustomed to fixing these deceptive experiences, we cannot navigate the world.

But in the above teenage post, another experience needs to be corrected. There is no ‘I’ which sees something. It is an experience constructed by the brain to make you feel that what you believe in being is real. Fortunately, this is corrected the more you pretend to be someone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Pretending to be a child when you are grown up is much more fun than believing to be one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You can have as many friends as you want because having them or not is something you pretend.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Should your diet not go as planned, and you feel frustrated, you can solve it by pretending to be someone with a problem. Since what you pretend to have, you are without, there is no problem.

Pretending to be a person, who serves others can be fun.

Pretending to be someone definitive who serves others in a restaurant can be fun. Then, you can go home and pretend you are lazy when it is over. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Not believing but pretending to be someone, your conditioned behaviour for how to react falls apart. Thus you are free to enjoy the moment as it is instead of compulsively shaping your perception of it per your belief.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If there is somebody you dislike, you can remind yourself it is something you pretend. Should you feel it is wrong to complain, you also remind yourself it is a pretence. Hence it does not feel flawed but good to judge others.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you meet someone you are attracted to, analysing the perceived external interaction is common to build a personality the other person will love. But since most fear the other one will see through their masquerade, they build something into their new character they reckon the other one cannot live without, wherefore the relationship is built on dependency.  Fortunately, this self-made prison is easy to escape. All you need is to acknowledge that your new personality is pretence.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

What you pretend to do often depends on what you imagine others expect and what is in it for you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As long as you do not try to conceal specific feelings to preserve your appearance as someone definitive, no feelings seem to have the power to hide, it is fun pretending to be someone specific because what you pretend to be, you are not.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you are black-haired, you cannot choose to be blond. But you can pretend it, thus feeling light-haired.

You can compare linear time to the square pixels that makes up one dot on a computer screen being separated from each other and extended into a lines forming a spiral.

You can compare linear time to the square pixels that make up one round dot on a computer screen. When the square pixels are separated from each other and extended into a line forming a spiral, it seems the round dot is no longer one perpetual present but a linear timeline. Fortunately, separating the square pixels making up the round dot is impossible because one perpetual present is inseparable. Thus it is not a matter of returning to oneness but stopping seeing the past, now and future as real. Consequently, linear time does not seem to conceal one perpetual present. One way to do this is to pretend to see the past, now and future because what you pretend to see is not real. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

That which is One can be compared to a dot on a computer screen, where there is nothing but that. The dot consists of innumerable amounts of square pixels so tightly together that they cannot be differentiated. Thus they look like one point.

But if you extend this point by spreading out its small pixels in a continuous line, they can be differentiated from each other, thus perceived as separated appearances in space. The experience of time you get by making the line curved, like a spiral, so that from any point, it looks like there is an unknown future behind the next curve and a forgotten past behind the last one. Read more about that in Non-duality is non-dimensional.

But since there is no separation in oneness, extending it into a world where there seems to be more than one is impossible. However, when you believe in separation, it seems to take time to discover that a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy that covers oneness. Fortunately, you can speed up this discovery by pretending to be a separate being because what you pretend to be is not real. In this way, the belief in being separate is undone while having fun appearing to be that.

Being someone definitive is like Karaoke. For example, being a mother or father is based on replicating collectively agreed-on ideas of how to be a family.

When you have nothing to live up to, you are free to pretend to be someone who lives up to the expectations of the world.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You cannot pretend to be that which is One because it is formless. But you can pretend to be someone definitive. Hence you are nothing because what you pretend to be, you are not. Consequently, something specific does not appear to hide the formlessness of oneness.

What time is it!?

Updated January 31, 2023

What you think you see now is composed of many images, which, as rays of light, have travelled each their distance to you, where the brain compiles them into one image, edited as it sees fit. For example, in this picture, the sun is about eight minutes older than the palm trees in the front of the image because it takes the light eight minutes to travel from the sun to the Earth. And everything between the palm trees and the sun is between a split second and eight minutes old. But the completed image is a bit older because it takes time for the brain to compile all the images into one. In other words, the brain deceives you into believing your present experience happens now, while it happened in the past and maybe not at all, because to save time, the brain may have left out details or replaced everything with a similar image from its store. Read about the brain’s ways in hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

NOW IS CONSTRUCTED BY PAST
If you look at the sun now, you see how it looked eight minutes ago because that is the time it takes for the light to travel from the sun to you. Consequently, what you think you see now is the past.

Since the distance to the stars is enormous, it takes so long for their images to reach you that they may not be there anymore when you experience seeing them now. However, something close to you also has travelled in time. That is why everything you believe in seeing now is a collection of past images selectively put together by the brain as one image. Sometimes it uses an old image that looks similar to speed up things. In short, now is an illusion.

THERE IS NO PAST
Imagine the sun has consciousness or special equipment to see what happens on Earth. In that case, it will know how you looked eight minutes ago. Then imagine observing you from a star so distant from the Earth that what it sees now is your birth.

Science has recently found a point so far away in the universe, that they can almost watch its beginning as if it happens now.

And go on to imagine points further away in the universe from where the birth of your mother and grandmother is experienced by the universe now – also the birth of itself.

In the eyes of the universe, there is no past or future but one perpetual present. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THERE IS NO FUTURE
When your mother’s birth is seen from a specific point in the universe, it appears as if there is a future for her, but from another location in the universe, her death is seen at the same moment as her birth.

THERE IS NO TIME
From the limited perspective of the Earth, there seems to be a past, future, and now in between. But, seen from the universe’s perspective, there is no time. Everything co-occurs.

There is no before and after – and consequently no reincarnation. It is an idea made up to make the experience of being someone in a world of linear time seems as if it is going to last.

A TV can illustrate this. For example, it may have one channel showing a sci-fi movie, another one a film from the past and yet another one a documentary. But due to limitations, you only watch one at a time, although all of them play simultaneously.

Linear time is a simulated reality layered on top of one perpetual present.

In linear time, it seems like an explosion from a black hole expanded into a world defined by time and space. In reality, though, it contracted the exact moment it expanded. Thus nothing is left but memories of the expansion. However, when they are replayed in linear time, it appears as if there still is a world defined by time and space. Read more about that here.

THERE IS NO UNIVERSE
According to science, all the elements coming out of the big bang quickly organised themselves into a super pattern that would have stagnated if perfected. However, due to a few gaps, it expanded into what became the universe.

But everything that expands is bound to contract. Actually, it has already happened because everything co-occurs. Hence the universe begins and ends at the same moment.

NOTHING TO HOPE FOR
The hope for a better future upholds the belief in a universe of linear time. Especially because hope always is accompanied by fear. First, for not getting what you hope for, and if you get it, you fear losing it. However, if you wish for nothing, there is not something to lose, thus nothing to fear, wherefore you are free.

Reality is that which is One and since it is formless, thus endless, a world defined by time and space is a hallucination.

THERE IS NO FREEDOM
But since reality is oneness, and it takes more than one to be free, there is no freedom. However, while you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, the relief you get from hoping for nothing sets you free from belief in being there.

Instead, it is something you pretend. And where you pretend to be, you are not. So even though you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are not there, nor anywhere else, as that requires more than one, and there is no more that which is One. That said, although everything happens simultaneously, this seems to take a while when you appear as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

CANCELLEX COVID-19 and other symptoms of the belief in being someone definitive

Updated January 21, 2023

Alexius’ Duality Hacks do not heal the body. Instead, they sync you with the moment as it is, so you feel happy and thus, in a relaxed way, can assist the body in the best possible way. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The purpose of Alexius’ Duality Hacks is not to heal the body but the sick belief that you are in it. This healing takes the edge off the fear that physical issues seem to cause because they undo the assumption that you are somebody. Hence there is nobody to panic about. Nevertheless, you should still attend to COVID-19 and other physical problems materially. In short, get vaccinated for COVID-19. And apply Alexius’ Duality Hacks to heal the sich belief that you are someone in a capsule of time and space.

To have this belief undone, you do not have to hold back negative thoughts via meditation or other means of controlling or restraining yourself. On the contrary, the uncontrolled speed of thoughts brings you into the bliss of nothing (hack #5.1 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing). Here the slate is wiped clean for perceptions about how things should be. Hence you are restored with a perception in sync with the moment as it is (HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end). As nothing, therefore, is perceived to be missing or wrong, you feel complete.

Like a virus, a self in sync with the moment as it is does not have goals, needs or desires. Unlike a virus, however, it has a brain. But having no specific goal, there is no attempt to control the brain, which, therefore, is not hold back from injecting the self with shots of happiness. See also Happiness comes from not interfering with thoughts and emotions, whereas sadness comes from trying to do that.

Consequently, in an untroubled manner, you naturally assist your body and others in the best possible way (hack #4.3 The fake mix of physical and non-physical issues). Regarding COVID-19, this, at the time being, is being vaccinated and keeping social distancing.

Pretending to be someone definitibe, no conditioned belief stands in the way of enjoying the moment as it is.

Continuously reading Alexius’ Duality Hacks, one or more apply themselves so you can enjoy the belief in being someone definitive while slowly but surely having it undone. For example, it could be hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation, which applies itself while reading so that you stop believing you are scared of a virus. Instead, it is something you pretend to be – like in a game. And since you are not what you pretend to be, nobody panics. Hence there is plenty of energy to assist the body in the best possible way. 

Be aware, though, you cannot pretend to be scared if you suppress it. You must feel it to pretend it and thus not be it.
