Notes on ‘the duality flow’

Updated January 2, 2023

The basic self does not need to edit the experience of the world into something that complies with special concepts of being together in harmony, balance or whatnot. On the contrary, since everything experienced is created by the brain, the basic self is together with everything, regardless of appearance. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you perceive yourself as special, you constantly look for somebody to ratify your significance (read more about that here). But as closeness may reveal that your need to meet others is egoistic, you substitute genuine feelings of togetherness with conceptualised ones. So, for example, you adjust to the table manners of a traditional dinner party to appear close without actually being intimate – or you get popcorn and a classic movie to rewatch with someone as if you are close.

On the other hand, the basic self is not someone specific. It is relative to the moment put together by the experiences produced by the brain. Hence it has nothing to lose by genuinely feeling the present – nor if it seems frightening because fear is defined by calmness which defines fear, so the experience of them is genuine. Therefore, since you are in sync with your dualistic nature, you feel amused following the interaction of opposites.

Practically speaking, you get into the interaction of opposites by not accepting fear as a specific feeling. However, that does not mean you should avoid it. On the contrary, you acknowledge it to perceive it as ‘it is what it is,’ which reveals fear is not a specific feeling because it constantly interacts with its opposite, calmness, so that they can define each other. And since twofoldness is the nature of dualism, this establishes you as someone in a world of duality, wherefore you can hack it. Fortunately, going with the interaction of opposites, called the duality flow, you have fun while hacking duality.

That said, when you are not interested in being special, thus going on automatic gear as the basic self, you do not have to perceive specific feelings as ‘it is what it is.’ The brain automatically does that. Maybe it does not perceive them using those words. But you know specific feelings have been exposed as twofold when you cannot help but laugh, feeling the duality flow.

However, you do not laugh when not in the duality flow because being stuck in a specific feeling makes you nervous. Maybe you feel it in the stomach because to feel only positive, you suppress your negativity by projecting it onto a vulnerable part of the body. But you do not need to know what you have hidden to solve the problem of feeling confined by singleness. If you perceive your reaction to the upset stomach as ‘it is what it is,’ you see your response is twofold. Since that makes you feel complete, you have nothing to worry about.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Comparing the desire for something to see the drawback of getting it is a typical interplay of opposites in a world of duality. Going with this interaction, you feel complete, thus indifferent to the outcome. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You must judge something as inharmonious to know when you experience something harmonious. But as most people after that exclude the inharmonious, there is not something to define the harmonious experience. Consequently, what they get is an intellectual idea about harmony.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self expects others not to question its story of greatness but to adapt to it so that the world appears ordinary and the special self seems original. It is its way of hiding that it feels inferior. However, if not hiding that, feeling worthless can be perceived as ‘it is what it is.’ Thus revealing it is coupled with feeling extraordinary to define each other, so you get genuine feelings, not conceptual ones.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Splitting a duality pair into two distinct elements by projecting one of them onto your body or the world, none is genuine anymore because they need each other to be defined. Therefore, since they both become substantial, thus enduring instead of fleeting, you feel imprisoned by them. Fortunately, as you already know, ‘it is what it is’ undoes your fixed idea about what you feel.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you follow the nature of duality, it does not seem to have a hold on you, whereas fighting it makes you feel imprisoned. Being with duality is easy when you stop holding onto something specific. That does not mean you cannot have a particular spouse but that your reaction to the relationship is twofold.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You either breathe in or out. One excludes the other. Yet, they pave the way for one another. That is the way of the duality pairs.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you want positivity, you must also welcome negativity because everything comes in pairs of opposites in a world of duality. In non-duality, you can neither have negative nor positive vibes because it requires more than one to have anything. Since that also applies to having a shape, non-duality is formless, thus endless, wherefore a world of duality is an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When your attitude to something is single-minded, you get a specific peak experience. But this does not last because everything comes in pairs of opposites in a world of duality. Thus being at the top is soon replaced by being at the bottom. But if your approach is dualistic, you do not head specifically for the top but for the constant interplay of the highest and the lowest. Thus you are in the duality flow, which may not be as exciting an experience as solely being at the top. However, it continues to amuse you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The duality flow depends not on the specific elements in a duality pair but on the resilient energy between them – like the springy drive that makes a yoyo go up and down.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you feel you have nowhere to go and do not perceive it as a singular state of mind but a dualistic one containing nowhere and everywhere, you are in the duality flow. The same applies if you go with the interplay of irritation and relaxation. However, the duality flow is not about the opposing elements in the duality pairs but their interaction. That is what makes you feel complete – just like the interplay of breathing in and out makes you feel alive.

And like the opposing elements in the breath depend on each other, so do the components in other duality pairs. That is why you can only feel positive when contrasted with negativity. So if you are not in the constant interplay of positivity and negativity, what you believe in feeling when you claim to be positive is a concept conjured up by distancing yourself from negativity via meditation, for example. That is like separating yourself from either breathing in or out. You need them both to survive.

In short, in a world of duality, you keep the duality pairs intact so that the duality flow can vitalise you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

That something is ugly is not a fact, but how you have decided to perceive it. This singular Interpretation prevents you from seeing it as it is, namely, as beautiful as it is ugly. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You do not have to choose between good and evil in the duality flow. They complement each other. Therefore, since one is not better than the other, there is nothing to judge, thus nothing to establish fear as a specific feeling. Instead, you feel it interacts with trust.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In a world of duality, everything comes in pairs of opposing components that depend on each other. Thus splitting them into independent elements to hold onto just one of them and disassociate yourself from the other is impossible. Yet, it is possible to imagine you can get rid of your negativity by projecting it onto others, thus appearing solely positive yourself. However, you feel sluggish since this mental stance is achieved by repressing part of yourself. On the other hand, you feel energetic following the duality flow because twofoldness is the nature of duality.

If you are into being and having the best, the duality flow experience may be a continuous movement between the best and the worst. Should you want to be spiritual, the motion is probably between that and materialism. The duality flow could also go between hope and hopelessness or between what you hold dear and fear.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since the perception ‘it is what it is’ reveals that your response to something is twofold, and you are in a world of duality, it brings about completeness. However, as everything comes in pairs, completeness is coupled with incompleteness. No worries, you are neither whole nor fragmented but in the constant motion between these opposites – just like when one end of a see-saw goes up, the other goes down.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When someone is hurt in a movie, you may feel pain and relived when the problem is fixed. But since the film is not perceived as real, you feel entertained by going up and downs. That is how it is to be connected with the empty breath.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Should things not proceed as expected, when you are in the duality flow, you are not afraid of getting upset because you know everything comes in pairs. Therefore, since your concern is complemented by unconcern, the duality flow continues uninterrupted. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Having established ‘it is what it is’ as your default perception, you are always in the togetherness of the duality flow, thus feeling plentiful and not needy as when you divide the duality pairs into separate components.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The satisfaction you get from being in the duality flow is unlike what you get from something perceived as specific because you are always afraid of losing it, whereas you cannot lose the duality flow.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since everything comes in pairs in a world of duality, there is no sense in searching for something specific. That is such a relief.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you want the satisfaction of the duality flow, it is essential not to focus on anything specific. The same applies if you wish to undo the belief in duality. Therefore, since the perception ‘it is what it is’ cancels out anything specific, you kill two birds with one stone by applying it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A long time ago, Alexius conditioned himself to hide his sorrow behind justified anger and disgust. That changed when he did not try to hide or rationalise his grief but perceived his reaction to it as ‘it is what it is.’ Then, he met a little boy floating on waves of sweet nectar inside his sorrow.

Therefore, since he saw sorrow was paired with mellowness, he stopped fencing off sadness to feel good. Instead, the interaction of happiness and sadness became his basic experience of the duality flow.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Going with the duality flow, hate does not make you frown but smile :) Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To feel important is a single-minded notion that has been separated from its counterpart. Hence it brings about loneliness. But in the duality flow, importance interacts with unimportance. Thus you get togetherness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Feeling good is not about making the body relax but how you perceive your reaction to its condition. For example, if your response is irritation, you assume your body is its source. But relaxing your body will not make you feel better psychologically because the problem is not in your body but in your reaction. When you perceive that as ‘it is what it is, you see, irritation is coupled with pleasure, and they depend on each other to be genuinely experienced. Therefore, since you cannot have irritation without pleasure and vice versa, you feel delighted when you see your irritation as dual, thus having nothing to blame the body for.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Having followed the duality flow for some time, the specific state of mind you used to conjure up to feel at ease is forever out of reach. Now everything is seen as twofold. What that means, you do not know. Nor do you care because you feel completed by the constant interaction of opposites. Hence there is no need for a specific state of mind or perspective to escape feeling disturbed.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you succeed in letting go of your hatred, you also get rid of the ability to feel love because everything comes in pairs of opposing elements that define each other. Hate defines love and vice versa, so you cannot have one without the other.

Therefore, to quickly get back the love you have discarded by projecting your hate onto others, you perceive ‘their’ hate as ‘it is what it is.’ That reveals it is coupled with love. And since you can only see what you have, you feel the togetherness of love and hate in yourself. Read here about quickly bringing back your repressed emotions by seeing them in others.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is relaxing and energising not to control your appearance but go with the duality flow – as you go with the flow of the waves when swimming. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In the duality flow, our response to something is not singular but twofold. Therefore, nothing is problematic since nothing is considered distinctly right or wrong. However, most people are identified with their problems, so they hang onto them by maintaining their conditioned views of right and wrong, although it makes them feel imprisoned.

In contrast, they can have their issues and feel free from them if not judged as definitely right or wrong but instead going with the interaction of right and wrong. So, for example, if you appear clumsy and do not judge that as right or wrong, you have your problem, but it is not problematic.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Being intuitive, you do not try to interfere with the brain. Thus you are in the duality flow.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You do not have to plan when in the duality flow. That is not to say that you never need to think ahead to get something done. But the appropriate thoughts pop up automatically when you are in the duality flow. They may not come in a systematised way but in the spontaneous way of nature.

It does not plant seeds in rows to get the most in return but enthusiastically throws them everywhere to see what happens. Nor does it build something totalitarian like Bauhaus or construct a meal in a categorical style like Nordic. In other words, following the duality flow, nothing is predictable except having fun because your experience is in sync with the present moment.

That said, you neither have to plan when you are not in the duality flow because the brain is always in charge. So if an event seemed to go according to your plan, it is because you, in retrospect, interpreted it, so it turned out as hoped for – like you shape a chaotic dream with words such as patterns, displacement activity, unity, synchronicity and karma to make it seem consistent with your point of view. However, editing your experiences is exhausting, and it limits you by your conditioned view. In contrast, it is effortless going with the experiences as they are, thus not restricted to being someone definitive.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is no truth to extract from Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings. They are a part of a world where there seems to be more than one, and such a world is non-existing because there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless. Hence, the basic and special self’s differentiation and perceptions are nonsense.

Nevertheless, that craziness can be beneficial in exposing the absurdity of believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The imagined mix of physical and psychological issues

Updated January 21, 2023

Those who think their body should be transformed and become more spiritual need to be more physical. The body is solely material. Hence it cannot be mixed with something immaterial. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

For years there has been an unhealthy idea about uniting body, mind and soul. However, the body is a physical unit built to deal with material matters, not mental, emotional or metaphysical ones – like the physical and cyberspace cannot be combined, except in fantasy. In other words, the assumed link between a problem in the psyche and the body, or vice versa, is make-believe. How to undo that is what hack #4.3 The fake mix of physical and non-physical issues, explores.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Naturally, the body is exhausted after working, jogging or doing something else that requires much energy. But if you respond to the body’s condition with anxiety and assume those feelings are connected, it feels like the body is about to collapse. However, since the connection between a physical and psychological issue is made up, so is the supposed outcome. Hence it cannot be healed in the body but where it is imagined, namely in the mental zone.

On the other hand, if you deal with the body’s tiredness physically, the problem is probably solved by a good night’s sleep. And if you deal with anxiety where it is, namely in the mental sphere, you see it has nothing to do with feeling tired but old feelings of not making triggered by feeling exhausted. But you made it. That is why you are tired. And you will feel anew after resting the body.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The body is made to interact with structures that, like itself, are material. That is why the body interprets your attempts to integrate it with non-physical feelings or ideas of spirituality as an attack on its integrity, which it must defend itself against.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You will never find anything physical in the digital world. Likewise, you never see something physical in the psychological sphere or vice versa. In other words, the concept of a body-mind connection is a scam.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Non-physical feelings are fleeting, so if you want to make them last, you must combine them with something more lasting, like physical feelings. However, immateriality and materiality do not mix, so their combination is purely speculative. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A psychological feeling only seems sticky or hidden when imagined combined with something substantial. Undoing this fantasy by facing the psychological issue in the mental area may at first seem like torture because you fear what you have suppressed. However, if you do not edit the unpleasantness, it will not remain long because the mental zone is airy, so one look at it is enough to dissolve it. That happens so fast that you will not remember what you looked at. Read more about this process in Sadness is a close friend of gladness. In The psychological zone is anywhere, but in something solid, you can read about where the mental zone is.

Unfortunately, most people do not want to undo the belief in a body-mind connection. On the contrary, they want to uphold their imagined union of immaterial and material issues as authentic so that they can extend specific emotions and thus remain in a fantasy of lasting love, for example. Should their extended feelings be questioned, they refer to the bodily symptoms they claim are caused by psychological issues.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The nature of non-physical feelings is fleeting, so if you experience a specific one continuously, it is not due to the feeling but to you. You probably have combined it with a physical sensation in the body, which seems to make it more substantial and lasting. So, by imagining the psychological feeling in the stomach, you seem to experience it every time you have an upset stomach.

If it is an exceptional experience of love you want to hold onto, you probably combine it with a pleasant physical notion in the heart. And if it is a hateful memory you want to hold onto, you link it with physical unpleasantness in the chest. However, just as you cannot combine a wall with the wind, fusing a body with an abstract feeling is impossible.

Yet, it is possible to mentally blend the experience of physicality and psychology so that whenever you experience a specific kind of love, you think you feel something nice in the heart. And whenever you feel hatred towards someone, you imagine something weird in the chest. In both cases, it is a mental experience based on the wish to extend a psychological feeling by imagining it is linked with a physical experience.

You can undo this imagination by perceiving your reaction to the thought-up mix of physical and psychological feelings in the chest as ‘it is what it is.’ That renders your response indefinable. Therefore, since the body is set free from your thought-up mixture, it lines up with the biological system to outline the physical part of the combo and heal it in agreement with physical laws.

Most likely, the problem is the muscles. They have tightened up to defend against your attempt to inflict the body with non-physical issues. In that case, you can help the body by massaging it with fasciae tools from Blackroll, for example. However, to ensure you have no hidden heart problem, it is good to consult a healthcare professional.

When we project the weaknesses of our personality onto how we feel vulnerable parts of the body, such as the stomach, our perceived flaws seem to have been erased from our awareness. That is how we fool ourselves into believing we have been transformed. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When something seems very scary in a movie, it is often experienced as real because fear builds up in your body. However, the film has no power to do that. The anxiety is not caused by the events in the movie but by how you perceive them.

You perceive the events as scary because you have conditioned yourself to interpret specific scenarios like that. And to make fear real, you project it onto a body part that already is tense and seems to get tenser when you give it your attention. Thus it feels as if the movie affects your body.

Sometimes, it is the other way around. For example, you have a stomach ache, but it does not add meaning to your life. So you imagine a psychological issue from your past causes the pain. Unfortunately, this thought-up combination results in a psychosomatic disorder that is impossible to disentangle because the psychological part is most likely pieced together.

Fortunately, you do not have to understand what is going on and why. As said above, you can undo this imaginary combo by perceiving your reaction to it as ‘it is what it is.’ That renders your response indefinable, wherefore it has no definable cause. And without a specific cause, there is no particular effect. In other words, the supposed psychosomatic disorder is undone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You have excluded what you do not like about yourself from your awareness by imagining it is linked with the feeling of a vulnerable body part. Therefore, since your psychological issues seem hidden inside physical problems, you unconsciously resist healing the physical difficulties that you imagine are blended with psychological issues.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It does not rain because you feel sad, nor does the rain has the power to make you feel bad. That is unless you choose to perceive such a course and effect. Likewise, the body cannot make you sad, nor does feeling unhappy make the body bad unless you imagine such a connection.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Projecting psychological feelings onto the body and expecting them to go away when the body is fixed is like placing feelings in your smartphone and thinking they to go away when the phone is repaired. Psychological feelings remain in the psychological sphere. Hence it is there they must be dealt with.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you do not look for anything to make you feel better, your reaction to everything automatically is perceived as ‘it is what it is.’ Consequently, there is not something to upset you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Many people turn the body’s signals into mental messages by dematerialising the body – the genital zone, for example, is dematerialised via tantra sex. Read more about sex here. Thus it seems you can mentally decide that the signals from the abandoned areas are spiritual. But there is no spirituality in the body. On the contrary, the body is material. That is why it defends itself against the attempts to combine it with non-physical issues by turning it into a weapon against you.

Even though this feels distressing, you accept it because this further disrupts the natural flow of communication between the body and the brain, so you, not the brain, seem to be the body’s boss. However, the body does not understand the thought-up vision of a body-mind-soul connection. So again, it attacks your ideas of integrating it with spirituality by making the body suffer. And on it goes until you stop inflicting the body with your ideas of unity.

Fortunately, it does not matter how abused your body is regarding applying Alexius’ Duality Hacks. They bring you into a state of not-knowing regardless of the body. In this state, the slate is wiped clean, So when you return to the consciousness of being someone, the foolish ideas of a body-mind-soul connection are gone. Thus your body is happy, and since you appear to be in it, so are you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Most do not feel and see the body as it is. Instead, they have a vision of what it will feel and look like in the future when they have successfully imposed their ideas of perfection upon it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you perceive your response to an experience as ‘I know what it is,’ it is based on a quick look at different points of view to see which one establishes you as in-the-know. The feeling of stress that this entails is not solved before you stop insisting, ‘I know what it is,’ and instead perceive your response as ‘it is what it is.’ This perception does not require you are on top of it. Thus, you are at peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When your reaction to something is perceived as ‘it is what it is,’ the specific meaning you decided your response opens up and reveals it is not singular but twofold. Therefore, paired with being pure, lust does not make you feel ashamed but joyful. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The fastest way to repair a psychosomatic disorder is to not perceive it as ‘I know what it is but ‘it is what it is.’ The first view is definite, whereas the second does not have a monocratic but dualistic approach. Hence the second view aligns you with dualism, and since you are in a world of duality, this is the way to go if you want to feel complete.

In other words, to start the healing of a psychosomatic disorder, there is nothing you need to change but your perception of your reaction to it. Read more about that in The body is made to deal with physical issues, not psychological ones.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Sometimes, the breath is held back to prevent pain in a problematic body area. That is not healthy, nor is pushing the breath through it. Both approaches imply you believe that you are in control. However, you would quickly die if you should remember to breathe.

The solution to this is not to let the breath be. This idea also implies you are in charge. The key is to step back so that what you believe in being is out of the way. That is done by perceiving the fear that your problem seems to cause as ‘it is what it is.’ It reveals fear is not alone. It is complemented by confidence, defined by fear that outlines confidence.

In this interplay, called the duality flow, you feel complete, thus free. Therefore, since there is no attempt to interfere with the breath, it runs freely despite physical issues.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Whatever is perceived in the psyche to affect the body or in the body to affect the psyche is made-up connections. Fortunately, they are undone when you perceive your reaction to the effect as ‘it is what it is.’ However, you may feel empty when the idea of a body-mind connection goes down the drain. No worries. Soon you realise how laid-back life is without this fake unity.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Although the clothes and the body wearing them seem closely related, they do not understand each other. The clothes have no love or anything else to give the body and vice versa. Likewise, immateriality and materiality have nothing to give each other. Their reality is different. That is why psychological ideas of attaining physical wellness do not work.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since psychological issues seem to impact the body significantly, many conclude they are connected. But that is like assuming clothes are connected with the body because you feel cold without them. They have absolutely nothing in common.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Clothes feel good when adjusted to your body’s size. And the body feels good when you are adjusted to it, which you are when willing to fall all the way into the body. The purpose is not to integrate your awareness with the body but to enjoy the interaction of heaviness and lightness. It feels so good that grievances and desires disappear, so every moment is the perfect moment – nothing is wrong or missing. It goes on like that until you focus on something specific.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Applying one or more of Alexius’ Duality Hacks reestablishes the connection between the body and the brain. Not by healing the body, though, but by undoing the foolish idea that you are in it. Hence it becomes like a coat you wear. It follows you, but you are not the same.

In a world of duality, there is no compassion without brutality

Updated January 28, 2023

With eyes closed, you may still see images of the world because the brain does not need information from your sensory system to produce them. This is just something it claims to distract you from realising that it has created all your experiences of something from out of nothing (read more about that here). That includes the experiences perceived to be spiritual and those implying you are someone definitive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since it requires more than one to have a shape, oneness is formless, thus endless. And since it also calls for more than one to experience something, and there is no more than that which is one, the awareness of something is an illusion. However, this hallucination seems to become real when oneness is imagined being split into two, an observer and the observed, since they appear to confirm the existence of each other. Hence the observer concludes that it must go on separating to be alive.

However, doing so destroys the pairs of opposites that oneness originally was split into, so each side could define the other, and their interaction would produce a full experience of duality. Hate, for example, was paired with love to define that experience. But when the link is broken, there is no hate to define love, wherefore it feels questionable.

That is why the observer presses on to find real love until it realises that hate and love are two sides of the same coin, so you cannot have one without the other. Nor can you have peace without a fight, relief without an ache, action without inaction, perfection without imperfection, and so on.

Therefore, since love cannot be felt without hate, you deceive yourself if you claim only to feel love. It is a mental concept you have plugged into that you manifest by hugging and sharing or whatever seems to establish your theoretical idea of pure love. Read more about that in hack #4.3 The fake mix of physical and non-physical issues.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The purpose of Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teaching is not to explain the truth but to show there is nothing to explain, as it requires more than one to do so, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless, thus endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Fortunately, you do not need to understand the nature of duality to be vitalised by the duality flow. If you perceive your single-minded response to an experience as ‘it is what it is,’ you sense it is not singular but twofold. Hence you are in sync with duality.

You can also get aligned with duality by entering a state of not-knowing because you come out of this state with your slate wiped clean, thus being the basic self dedicated to duality. Read more about that in A state of not-knowing and the after-effect.

Therefore, since you do not attempt to pull apart the duality pairs into independent elements fighting each other but comply with their synergy, the collaboration of love and hate, for example, gives you the complete relationship experience.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Like a movie, the experience of polarity unfolds as scripted by the director. Since that is not you, there is nothing you can change but your perception of it. When that is in sync with the script as it is, which it automatically is when the slate has been wiped clean by a state of not-knowing, you feel the shots of happiness that the director of the script, namely the brain, constantly injects.

Eventually, this makes you so relaxed that you have no more to ask for. Hence the belief in being and having more than that which is one has been undone while you had fun experiencing more than one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Going back to the basic self appears to be the goal for many spiritual seekers. They seem to think it is without ego and therefore live in the now, come from the heart and whatnot. They are right to assume that it is not egoistic because the basic self does not establish itself as independent of the brain, thus not having thoughts on its own. But it does not know about living in the now, coming from the heart or anywhere else but the brain – like a self-driving car is managed by the internet, the brain governs it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When the brain supplies you with thoughts of fury, and you give it your best shot to perceive yourself as angry, you cannot help but feel happy. The same applies to any other so-called negative feeling as long as you do not justify it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Some confuse the basic self for being Enlightened. However, since the experience of being someone is fabricated by the brain and all experiences are erased by the Enlightenment of that which is One, what you believe in being cannot be Enlightened. For example, Alexius is not Enlightened but to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self always looks for something lasting. But since everything has a beginning and an end in a world of duality, nothing is constant.

Fortunately, the end is entertaining as the beginning when your perception is synced with the brain’s script. Consequently, the basic self has no need for something to last.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Being on your own makes you feel small, which the special self expects to fix by getting the power it imagines comes from riches, going deeper or realising something higher.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The more the special self can convince others that it can improve the world, the more powerful it feels, thus hiding feeling inferior.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you think a car in a game like Monopoly actually can drive, your perception is out of sync with the play’s script. Consequently, the game does not seem amusing but frustrating. Likewise, if you believe what you appear to be in a world of duality is going anywhere.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Being the basic self is like being in intensive care in a hospital, except that you are not sick, and still, somebody is watching out for you. Actually, it is the same for the special self, but contrary to the basic one, it does not enjoy that the brain takes care of it because it perceives itself as an independent being who does things in its way and pace. That perception is even more illusionary than believing to be someone because, within this belief, everything experienced is a product of the brain, including the experience of being independent.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

For the special self, it is always about becoming better and bigger. So disguised as a do-gooder, it sends love and healing to someone it judges to have less than itself. Read more about that here. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen

If the self-centred purpose of the special self is exposed, it will either deny it or say it is sorry and then go on precisely as before.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self thinks it creates its reality, but it is not different from the brain’s script because it cannot be changed. However, the special self fools itself into believing it has made something new by assigning everything a different meaning. For example, somebody who dies is not seen as done for but as going on a new journey. If somebody questions this, they are seen as attacking a higher truth. And if science proves this truth is wrong, the special self says their facts are a hoax.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Whether you deny or accept the brain’s script, you are in a relationship with the brain. And since that confirms the foundation of the script, namely that there is more than that which is One, the brain is grateful. Thus it rewards you with shots of happiness. Unfortunately, you do not notice it if you try to cut off the brain.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self does not need to make a perception that seems to alter or transform the brain’s script into something better. Unlike the special self, it has no need to create, modify or change anything. So although it may feel scared when the script brings it down, it also feels joy because it perceives its reaction to going down as ‘it is what it is,’ which reveals there is no fear without joy and vice versa.

Going with the interaction of fear and joy, the basic self gets the thrill of the duality flow. But the special self does not get that because it separates fear and joy, so it can suppress fear from its awareness to feel solely joyful. But it does not feel joy but confusion because there is no fear to define feeling joyful.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

For the special self, a relationship is not about sharing but expanding its image imperialistically by invading somebody else. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

For the special self, happiness comes from having the best, whereas it comes from having a perception in sync with the brain’s script for the basic self.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is not what happens but what you make out of it that makes you sad. In other words, suffering is your choice.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Most of all, the special self refrains from being in sync with the brain’s script because it fears it will contradict the special perception it has made of being spiritual, for example.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self assumes happiness comes from being in control. Therefore, if something does not happen as planned, it upholds the idea of being in control by thinking it changed its mind.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since the basic self is not exclusive, thus inclusive, and since everything in a world of duality comes in pairs, the inclusion of happiness contains sadness and vice versa. However, the special self is not inclusive but exclusive. Hence it does not experience the interaction of happiness and sadness. Besides, it is not in touch with its feelings because when it excludes hate to feel it solely loves someone, there is no hatred to define love, wherefore it becomes a mental concept.

If the intensity of a feeling surpasses the special self’s concepts, it is devastating because feelings always come in pairs to define each other as genuine. Thus the special self cannot see itself as loving by projecting its self-hatred on others. Instead, it feels the interaction of love and hate, which is seen as a disaster because it destroys its concept of being romantic.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Should the thoughts from the brain seem to upset you, it is not because of them but the way you perceive them. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since it takes more than one to be established as someone, there is nobody in non-duality, nor anywhere else, because non-duality is formless, thus endless. Consequently, being someone in a world of duality is a fantasy. Should you want to participate in the fiction but not be burdened by it, you do not divide the duality pairs into distinct feelings but enjoy their interaction, thus feeling integrated with the fantasy of duality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since the special self always feels something is missing in the present, it plans to find it in the next moment.

The basic self does not get afterwards, nor before. Not because it lives in the now. It does not get that either. All it gets is the flow of thoughts that come from the brain. Since it always results in happiness, it never feels like anything is missing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you binge-watch your favourite TV show, you end up so blown out that there are no perceptions left but those in sync with the show’s script – like when the basic self happily participates in each episode of the adventure produced by the brain.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If one of the special self’s perceptions is exposed as fake, the special self diverts the focus from itself by making up a new perception in which it is unjustly attacked.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self likes to be together with others, but on one condition, namely that others accept its perception of things shapes their relationship.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

By stating »we are all one,« the special self thinks it expresses non-duality. But since separation is the foundation of this statement, it upholds duality as real.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Do not expect the basic self to have a merry-go-round life. If it had, it could not see that happiness does not come from a special set-up but from a perception in sync with the brain’s script.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The brain renders a world in which there appears to be somebody who can vouch for its authenticity. In return, the world seems to attest to the existence of the one making this confirmation. But It is all fiction, and so is the story about the brain making it because there is no more than that which is One, and it takes more than one to make or experience something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you do not make up a perception that avoids, corrects or replace the brain’s script, you confirm that the brain supplies you with everything needed. Thus you feel safe.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self is always worried about the future, whereas the basic self lives in joyful ignorance of time.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is much cheaper to be the basic self than the revised and more special version because the basic self does not have to buy something extraordinary to feel special.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Whether the self is perceived as basic or special, it is a fantasy put together by the brain, so it seems real when one self reacts to another. But that is like concluding a dream is real because you meet someone in it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Like anything else that can be experienced, Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings are an illusion. However, since they do not try to hide that but expose the fallacy of everything experienced, you can use them to realise you are an illusion.

How long time this takes does not matter. Time is an illusion. Still, the more the illusionary process of undoing the belief in more than one progresses, the less there seems to hide you are nothing disguised as something. Hence you can relax and have fun believing in being something while the belief gets undone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The experience of nothing as something does not need to be avoided. On the contrary, that would confirm that nothing can be twisted into something. But if your reaction to something is perceived as ‘it is what it is,’ your response is not definitive. Therefore, since it does not confirm something has caused it, you can enjoy seeing nothing as something like you do when dreaming.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

What you appear to be, was dreamed up at the edge of a black hole through which you believed to have escaped the formlessness of oneness. Your rebelliousness continues in a world of duality, where you do not accept that everything comes in pairs of opposites. You fight by separating the constant interaction of opposing components into disconnected elements, not supporting but fighting each other.

If you are factual-minded, you may ask, where are the facts behind the above explanation? But there are no facts in a world of duality because it is a hallucination. Reality is non-duality which is formless, thus endless. Therefore, a world of duality – including Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings – is a mirage. Nevertheless, Alexius’ Duality Hacks undo the belief that the mirage is real.

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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.

Strangers in the night

The world is fabricated by bits and pieces.

In old scriptures, being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is often compared to being in a world of darkness. As someone who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, Alexius knows this is literally so. The world we believe to see is a construction of thoughts added together to make it look like there is something where there is nothing. The below story illustrates this:

INVENTING TO SEE A WORLD IN THE DARK
There ar
e no streetlights outside Alexius’ home, so when he wakes up in the middle of the night, the only thing ‘lighting’ up his home is the stars or the moon.

Still, it is easy for Alexius to find the way to the toilet without electrical light. He has learned where everything is and can use certain things as navigation points so that they seem to ‘light’ up the way. But it is all imagined and put together by trial and error. Actually, he stumbled quite a few times, learning to ‘see’ his way in the dark.

But he cannot ‘see’ anything other than how he has thought up. Maybe he can learn ‘seeing’ beyond that if he studies how to do it. But what he learns to ‘see’ will be another fabrication because the other rooms are also entirely in the dark.

The way from his bed to the toilet can be compared to everybody’s way in a world where there seems to be more than one. You seem to see something and then go from that to something interpreted as different. But you move in the dark. Whatever you think you see, you have learned to define like that (read more about that here). Without this knowledge, there is nothing to see. Neither is there anything hidden or something to be understood except that everything you believe in seeing is a construction of thoughts (read more about that here).

WHAT IS FABRICATED DOES NOT EXIST
When you do not care to find a way through the darkness, what you have learned to see disappears – also darkness because the Enlightenment of that which is One set in. It is not a light that can be compared to the sun or similar artificial sources that lights up something. There is nothing to light up because there is no more than that which is One, and it takes more than one to see something.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
You can compare welcoming the Enlightenment of that which is One to making a video call from your computer to that which is One. There is so much light on the computer screen that you cannot see it or anything else until the call is over, and the screen again simulates a world where there seems to be more than one. However, now you know it is a fake, so when you go on like before as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is something you pretend. Read more about that in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.


NOTES:

‘The Enlightenment of that which is one’ cannot be seen

Updated January 15, 2023

The eye cannot see this pic. It is registered as light divided into red, green and blue by three taps in the eye. This info is sent to the brain, where the same organ process both so-called reality and imagined or virtual reality The three colors are mixed in such a way, that it appears to be an image of someting solid in the world, that can be defined by time and space, even though almost 99% of matter consists of empty space.

Since it requires more than one to understand something, you call off the Enlightenment of that which is One if you try to process it. And since it also takes more than one to get a second chance, this is out of the question. But, since oneness is formless, thus endless, you have never left it. Therefore it is only the belief in separation that needs to be undone. Fortunately, the Enlightenment of that which is One does that immediately. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be known because it takes more than one to be aware of something. However, having been in a spiral of colours exploding into a bright white light, opaque and formless, one may vaguely remember that it abruptly extracted the memories of being someone and left them at the threshold of a black hole,* whereafter nothing gracefully fell through a neverending void into that which is one.

From the above, you may get the impression that the Enlightenment of that which is One is a process over time. But it happens simultaneously, or rather, it does not occur because it requires more than one for something to happen. That is why, when returning to a world where there seems to be more than one, it may take a long time to grasp you are to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.

The reason for that could also be that the Enlightenment of that which is One has nothing to do with the merry-go-round stories made from speculations bout awakening and transcending, levels of consciousness, and second-hand knowledge about mystical experiences.

But that all requires more than One, thus something in a world where there seems to be more than one and not the Enlightenment of that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings offers no hope because that depends on time, an illusion.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is no way to the Enlightenment of that which is One. Going there is a way of uncertainty, one beat at a time until you go nowhere.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The Enlightenment of that which is One is not a way back to oneness because you have never left it. That is why nothing goes back through a black hole into the formlessness of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To get a sense of the Enlightenment of that which is One, you must empty yourself for all ideas about it. And then again, doing so will not help because it enhances the belief that you are someone definitive. And believing that is what hides the Enlightenment of that which is One. Therefore, do not try to implement Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings in your way of seeing things, but use it to undo your belief system.

The Enlightenment of that which is One can be compared to a door into oneness. But just like a door in a building has nothing to do with the house, the Enlightenment of that which is One is not oneness. It has no doors because it requires more than one to have something. Nor is there a door in a world where there seems to be more than one, as there is no more than that which is One.

No worries. That which is you is not in a world where there seems to be more than one. Just like – in the context of such a world – you are not in the world of a computer game, even though it may feel so because of the reactions to the game. These reactions, however, are not caused by the world in the game – it has no such power – but by how you choose to perceive it. In other words, the experience of being someone in a virtual world is fabricated by yourself.

Likewise, the experience of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. And then again, this is not entirely so. That which is you is not imagining being in a world where there seems to be more than one because it takes more than one to be somewhere, and that which is you is not anywhere but in the formlessness of oneness.

Nevertheless, you experience being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one for some unexplainable reason. So, in the context of this experience, the Enlightenment of that which is One tour way out of it because it undoes all experiences.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When the sun is shining sharp and bright, it reveals the state of a window. However, it is the opposite of the Enlightenment of that which is One. Although its light is more brilliant than thousands of suns, it reveals nothing. There is not something to see and no need to see anything. Not because the light fulfils you but because it undoes the belief in being someone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Believing that your experience of being someone in a tangible world is genuine can be compared to watching a movie in a cinema. You project yourself onto the simulated world on the screen. Hence the reactions to your projections seem to come from the fabricated world, not you, so you believe the world you see is genuine.

The Enlightenment of that which is One is to be compared to a sudden crack in the roll of the film with the world you project yourself onto. Therefore, since the world is replaced by a bright white light, there is nothing to project yourself upon.

In the context of this metaphor, what is real is not the bright white light but the source projecting it, namely the movie projector. It is neither in the simulated world on the screen nor the bright white light, although it is the power making it possible for something to appear on the screen.

However, since this metaphor is part of the movie called The World, it is, of course, as fictitious as everything else in that movie. But since there is nothing unreal, there is no movie, thus nobody is watching it. So the movie metaphor is just a way to explain what cannot be described. If it could, the film would be real, and somebody would be in it.

That is why so many want to know how the world was created and why they are there. If it can be explained, they can rest assured they are real. However, in reality, there is nothing to explain because there is no more than that which is One, and it takes more than one to explain something.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A person cannot welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. But a person can momentarily forget what and where it appears to be so that there is not something definable to hide the Enlightenment of that which is One. But if a person just partly forgets what and where it appears to be, it gets glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Meditation may result in the experience of something you interpret as infinity, purity, divinity or unity. But you will not experience the Enlightenment of that which is One by meditating or doing something similar. It cannot be brought about because that takes more than one.

Even if you could cause the Enlightenment of that which is One, you would probably hold back. Perceived from a world where there seems to be more than, oneness is incredibly dull. There is nothing to see or feel or look forward to. Therefore, it is not very appealing compared to the excitement you get in a world where there seems to be more than one from falling in love, having sex or whatnot. However, it has a prize, a constant feeling of failure because no matter how much more you seem to become or have, you are bound to lose it.

But suppose this makes you so depressed that you lose interest in achieving more. In that case, you pay no attention to having the belief in being someone undone by a highly bright light, wherefore nobody gently falls into the formlessness of oneness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The purpose of feelings is to make you feel more than that which is one, although it is formless, thus endless, wherefore there is no more than One.

In other words, feeling something is an illusion. The same applies to experiencing something. That is why the Enlightenment of that which is One neither can be felt nor experienced.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The Enlightenment of that which is One does not change anything – except that you know everything experienced is fake, including god, love, ego, and whatnot. When you know that, you are free to step on it and play the game of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The easiest way to play the game is to pretend to be there because where you pretend to be, you are not. Thus, you have fun appearing to be what you are not. Read about that in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

There seems to be separate appearances to be defined by time and space in the dream called The World. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you believe in seeing separated appearances defined by time and space, you see what you think you are, someone specific separated from others. In other words, you believe that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One, thus fencing off the formlessness of oneness.  Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The Enlightenment of that which is One is a moment that starts with the experience of something. Yet, at the exact moment, the experience is over. You are not transcended nor awakened to a new awareness. On the contrary, there is no consciousness of you ever having been someone. There is just one light, sound, feeling or taste – so intense that there is nothing to see, hear, feel or taste and nothing to be.

The four aspects of the Enlightenment of that which is One do not mix, so you get the one you know the most from believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Since that, for most people, is the sense of seeing something, we continue with the visual aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One. Its light sucks what it has stripped free of the belief in something through a black hole into the formlessness of oneness. That is, if you do not deem that as a journey through something. In that case, you are back in the world of something.

Therefore, those who talk about exciting experiences of Enlightenment have not, as nothing, been sucked through a black hole into the formlessness of oneness. They held onto their belief in something to fence off the Enlightenment of that which is One and instead had glimpses of it as something you see, hear, feel or taste. But since it requires more than one to experience something, the glimpses are not the Enlightenment of that which is One.

For someone who is fed up with the experience of something, it is frustrating only to have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. But for those who love to experience something, it is perfect because the glimpses can be used to pump up their image by lecturing or writing books about the experience of a vast space full of pure love, consciousness, bliss, or something else, that makes them appear to have something better than others. However, having something has nothing to do with the Enlightenment of that which is One because it takes more than one to have something.

It is very beautiful with the light of the sun coming through the clouds, but it has nothing to do with enlightenment. It is just another sight in the world, that is just as virtual as the so-called egoless states the gurus and their followers are dreaming about.

It is stunning with the light of the sun coming through the clouds, but it has nothing to do with Enlightenment. It is just another sight produced via the outward-facing senses to make you so excited that it seems real although it is make-believe. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The visual aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One can be compared to closing all apps on a computer, including the one simulating the desktop. Without the appearance of a desktop, there is nothing to hide the light used to emulate something on the screen.

The aspect of Enlightenment of that which is One that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolise can be compared to the humming from the fan or the engine in a computer. You can hear this vibration all the time – especially if you do not look at the screen or listen to the sounds of the world simulated by the computer.

Though the light behind the desktop and the distant humming are the means for fabricating a simulated reality on the computer screen, they are not part of it, so if you want to see or hear what is powering the world that appears on the screen, you must do what is needed to empty it. That is a metaphor to say that you must undo your experience of something, so they do not seem to hide oneness is not somewhere specific but everywhere since it is formless, thus endless.


*) It may not be part of the Enlightened memories that the data of being someone is left at the threshold of a black hole. Perhaps it is a conclusion made in retrospect.

The ins and outs of a black hole

Updated January 23, 2023

The endings of an uncompleted black hole literally look like zen brush strokes.The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This zen drawing literally looks like an uncompleted portal of the Enlightenment of that which is One, except that the hole is neither white nor black, although it is often called a black hole. You cannot see it in this illustration, but the hole is full of the same chaotically and rapidly moving strokes of changing colours rapidly moving outside the black strokes. That is until the black strokes meet, and the bright white light that shoots out of the hole fills up everything, extracting all thoughts, making up what you believe to be and see so that there is nobody to experience gracefully being pulled through a hole that like the bright white light is no more. Thus nothing seems to hide that which always was and will be since it is formless, thus endless, namely that which is One. For the same reason, there is nobody to know that the Enlightenment of that which is One is not a process over time but one perpetual present, nor that what and where you believed in being never existed. You never left oneness. The graphic, which Alexius has manipulated, is grabbed from the web.

The Enlightenment of that which is One is like a vacuum cleaner that sucks out all the thoughts making the experience of being someone definitive. Hence there is nobody left to detect that the inner edges of what at first may look like a Zen circle open up, and the nothingness of you falls through the hole into that which is One. That is described as it happens in a world defined by time and space. But since that is not the case, there is no hole, thus neither nothing nor something on the other side. Instead, there is that which is One. However, it is formless, thus endless, so there are no sides. Nevertheless, we go on within the concepts of a world defined by time and space.

Even though it is often called a black hole, it is not necessarily black or white as in the image shown here, but probably full of the same rapid-changing lucid colours surrounding the stroke, which is more greyish than in this image.

The line surrounding the hole is not made by one but two strokes. They are drawn simultaneously, quickly and smoothly from the top without a brush. The look is similar to the image at the top, which you may see as a zen circle. However, if you do that, you are back in a world defined by time and space because the Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be described.

In other words, even though the Enlightenment of that which is One was about to strip you from everything definable so nobody would encounter a timeless journey with no distance to the formlessness of oneness, you chose to define something as recognisable. Hence you prevented being in free fall, moving so fast that nothing seems to move through a black hole, no longer a hole but colourless light with no substance and so bright that there is nothing to see but that which cannot be seen, namely that which is One.

Consequently, the beginning of the black hole you saw before returning to a world defined by time and space was not the Enlightenment of that which is One but a glimpse of it. Read more about those glimpses in hack #6.2 The inward and outward-facing senses, the Enlightenment and its glimpses.

If you in anyway try to define anything in the enlightenment of that which is one, you fence it off, so it cannot extract your thoughts so you as nobody freely are falling through a black hole into that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you try to see something definable in the Enlightenment of that which is One, such as red colours, you are back in a world defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Nevertheless, here is a description of the Enlightenment of that which is One. It cannot be experienced, so the description is solely based on the vague memories Alexius has of going where nobody can go. The memories may imply that the Enlightenment of that which is One is a sequence of events, but that is only because one perpetual present cannot be recalled in a world of linear time.

If you do not compare the two lines that hastily draw up a black hole with zen strokes or something else, the ends meet without you noticing. But you are taken by surprise by an explosion in the hole that makes a psychedelic light show outside and inside it, turning into nothing but one bright light, neither opaque nor transparent but so intense that it cannot be seen, nor can anything else because there is not anything to illuminate since it requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is One.

Thus it follows there is no light and no you to imagine a substantial world that once seemed to hide there never was or will be more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless.

In a black hole, like in a dream, there is no sense of a physical world or ever having appeared as someone in such a world. Nor is there a sense of any other world or being someone. But there is a sense of floating weightlessly through an endless void with no sides and light even though it is neither big nor dark.

There is not only a sense of being nothing in a non-definable void but also that this has a sudden end – presumably because it takes more than that to sense this, wherefore it must end. Thus there is nobody to see what happens next. Fortunately, it is not necessary because nothing happens or has happened in oneness since that requires more than one. In other words, you have never left oneness, so nothing ends but the idea that there is more than one.

To forget what and where you appear to be is to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Before the thoughts making up what you believe in being is absorbed by the exceptionally bright light that seems to explode in your face, you may sense that everything you believe in being will be abruptly terminated, so there is neither something nor nothing to fall through a black hole of antimatter into itself gracefully. If this is what you wish for, you better forget what you read so you do not use it to define the Enlightenment of that which is One, thus escaping it. Even better, if you forget what and where you believe in being, there is no belief hiding that which is you is no different from that which is One.

The enlightenment of that which is One is not for those who believe to come from the heart having direct experiences, or being full of compassion, because states like that depend on the belief that you are someone definitive and there is no room for something definable in the enlightenment of that which is One.

Should you, after reading this, feel that you have not gotten the ins and out of a black hole, you are lucky because there are no ins and out.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The form of a sonogram looks like the waves joining in making a black hole that, sometimes for just a moment, may remind you of an embryo. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Since the portal to the Enlightenment of that which is One – the so-called black hole – is not definitive, it may start in other ways than in the above description. For example, Alexius has had glimpses of it like a sonogram – or rather, a wide range of the triangle-like shape in the image to the right arranged around an indefinable centre. They were spinning so fast that they seemed to join each until the speed made them disappear. Just before that, a glittering round white stroke popped up inside the edge of the black hole. Then one bright light, more powerful than thousands of atomic bombs, erupted out of the darkness and filled everything.

It takes more than one to be conscious of something, so oneness cannot be understood. But there is much to learn in a world where there seems to be more than one about how to appear there. However, it is not understandable, that you believe to be in such a world.

You think you have escaped that which is one through an black hole looking a bit like an embryo into a world where there seems to be more than one. But it is a fantasy. It is not possible. There is no black hole, because there is no more than that which is one. Consequently I can only show you a fantasy picture of the black hole, that is imagined to look a bit like an embryo or a horse head. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You think you have escaped that which is One through a black hole into a world where there seems to be more than one. But it is a fantasy. There is no way to escape oneness because it is formless, thus endless. Consequently, this image of a black hole that may look like an embryo or a horse head is fake.

At other times ‘the black hole’ may look like the head of a horse (see the image in The ins and outs of the inward senses) or an embryo more developed than in the sonogram image (see the picture in Going back to the first moment of duality). Since there is no specific pattern to be deducted, do yourself a favour and forget about understanding the Enlightenment of that which is One.

CLARIFICATION OF TERMINATION:
Oneness is formless, thus endless, so there is no outside, and without that, no inside. In other words, since there is nothing other than that which is One, and it does not contain anything, being someone is an illusion. Consequently, the Enlightenment of that which is One terminates nothing but the belief that there is more than that which is one.

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.

’The Enlightenment of that which is one’

Updated January 29, 2023

Why do the flowers sometimes blossom on the street outside Alexius’ home? The answer is simple. It is the season for that. Likewise, it seems to be the season for Alexius to write about bidding welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PREFACE
Most books or lectures about The Enlightenment of that which is One are based on speculations of how to exclude something judged as darkness to becoming full of light. But to exclude is to separate, thus enhancing the belief in being someone definitive – and nothing definable can enter the Enlightenment of that which is One.

ONE PERPETUAL PRESENT
The Enlightenment of that which is One
 does not result in spiritual understanding or connection with a higher being. On the contrary, it results in nothing because it takes more than one to cause something.

Since it also takes more than one to return to that which is One, it is impossible. However, since the same applies to breaking away, you have never left oneness. That is why it does not know that you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The enlightenment of that which is one can be compared to taking a ride in a fairground carousel so fast, that the mind has to give up seeing any differences at all. Consequently it is not possible to remain as someone definitive and so there is therefore nobody to experience the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The Enlightenment of that which is One can be compared to taking a ride in a fairground carousel moving so fast that the brain gives up separating the trip into different appearances. Consequently, since there is no separation to establish you as someone definitive, there is nobody to experience being brought back to what was never left, namely the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The Enlightenment of that which is One undoes the belief in more than One. Metaphorically, it takes you on a ride in a fairground carousel, moving so fast that the brain gives up producing different images of the trip. Hence everything is fused into one bright light. However, the Enlightenment of that which is One is not a light that lightens up something. That calls for more than one, and so does being someone.

Therefore, since this experience is wiped out by the Enlightenment of that which is One, there is nobody left to experience bliss or anything else. So when Alexius talks about the Enlightenment of that which is One, it is not based on experience but on vague memories of something that cannot be experienced.

Reading his memories, you may get the impression that the Enlightenment of that which is One is a sequence of events happening in linear time. But everything ‘happens ‘simultaneously. However, that cannot be described in a world of linear time, nor that it is still ‘happening.’ Hence his description might be a mix of several ‘excursions’ from linear time into one perpetual present.

All info of someone definitive is extracted by either the light, sound, feeling or taste of the enlightenment of that which is one, so that there is nobody to be sucked through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is one, where there is neither chaos or order, as that would require more than one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

All info of someone definitive is extracted by either the light, sound, feeling or taste of the enlightenment of that which is One. Thereafter the nothingness of you is sucked through a black gap into the formlessness of onenes. But most try to avoid loosing their identity by establishing the black gap as something known like a black hole. Thus they remain someone definitive and cannot be sucked through the gap that is too small for something to enter. Instead, they have glimpses the Enlightenment of that which is One on the way back to a world where there seems to be more than one. Unfortunately,  many mistakes those glimmses for being Enlightened. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is One is to be compared to the fusion of all lights, or sounds, or emotions, or tastes – depending on our preference as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

None of these fusions are the formlessness of that which is One. They are merely ways to hold you spellbound so you so you do not resist all the thoughts collected to fabricate your personality are extracted by the enlightenment of that which is One, whereafter nothing definable is sucked through a black hole into the formlessness of oneness.

This article is about the first time the belief in being someone definitive momentarily was undone for Alexius. The enlightenment of that which is One was bid welcome in its most known aspect, namely light. Much later the other aspects – sound, emotion and taste – was also bid welcome. But never mixed. It is impossible to mix something in the enlightenment of that which is One, as that requires more than one.

Alexius assumes it is not necessary to bid welcome all the aspects, but that one of them is sufficient in regard to completely forget the imagination of a world where there seems to be more than one.

TO WELCOME THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
When Alexius was 22 years old, he welcomed the Enlightenment of that which is One after intensely having worked as a taxi driver for about 15 hours. Somehow the sum of the images from driving back and forth the streets continually looking for customers slowly turned into something less definable and more blurry. And when he came home early in the morning, Alexius had no energy to establish a focused image of himself in a world defined by time and space. Thus forgetting what and where he was, he was not aware of a transition to the spiralling show of psychedelic light that did not seem to come from anywhere and to suck him into nowhere.

Suddenly a black gap with no fixed location nor a fixed form, looking like a horse head or an embryo, popped out of the psychedelic light show. And then an utterly colourless light – brighter than the coloured light outside the black spot – started to form as a ring with no defined boundary inside the black gap’s edges, which apparently was a hole because colourless light exploded out of it.

The light absorbed everything. It was everywhere and yet nowhere. Without any mention, it knocked out the concept of Alexius being someone, somewhere, so nothing gracefully kept falling through the void into the formlessness of oneness. Alexius cannot recall it precisely because the thought construction shaping him was left outside the black hole, which was not black inside, nor a hole but a never-ending void of emptiness with the nothingness of him forever falling while swimming in a space that was not there – and then, in the exact moment of forever falling, it never happened specifically because everything co-occurred. In one perpetual present, he did not enter oneness because he never existed as someone separated from that which is One.

There is no more to add than oneness is not a big void of nothing filled with exotic ideas of unconditional love and whatnot. On the contrary, it is neither big nor small because it is formless, thus sizeless. And it is not filled with anything since that requires more than one. One more thing: leaving thoughts at the edge of a black hole may be a twisted memory. And, of course, it is a metaphor to say oneness is on the other side of a black hole because it is formless, thus without inside or outside.

Dunno if there is a spiral around the black hole of the enlightenment of that which is one, because being that close nothing seems to differ from each other. Yet for a moment so short, that it is not conceivable, a light inside the edge of the black hole so much brighter that the very bright light around it, suddenly explodes into a formless light that does not include Alexius but the formlessness of that which I am. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Alexius seems to remember a spiral around a black hole in the Enlightenment of that which is One. However, he does not remember it exactly as in this image – maybe because everything was moving extremely fast or he was so close that nothing seemed to differ from each other. Yet for a moment, so short that it was not conceivable, white light inside the edge of the black hole – much brighter than the colourful light around it – exploded into a bright light that erased everything definable. That is why he cannot report what ‘happened’ after being sucked by formless light through a shapeless black hole into that which is One. Nor can he find an image on the web that can illustrate his vague memories. Fortunately, you can go there yourself by not establishing yourself as someone definitive who is somewhere specific. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE IS INEXPLAINABLE
When Alexius welcomed the Enlightenment of that which is One, he was not aware of doing that. Actually, he had never heard about it or a black hole. Fortunately, he did not define anything because otherwise, he would have bounced back to a world defined by time and space. Thus the description of falling nowhere through a black gap into that which is One is made retrospectively.

Actually, it was not before much later, when he saw pictures of black holes in the universe, that he sensed how familiar they were. However, calling a black hole a path into oneness is a metaphor because there is neither an entrance nor an exit to that which is one. In other words, describing the Enlightenment of that which is One is impossible because even though so much goes on, nothing definable happens because it is one perpetual present.

To welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One, you do not have to drive a taxi all night or be in a ‘deep sleep’ as Buddha supposedly said. Whatever way you lose focus or stop defining and labelling will do regarding the Enlightenment of that which is One. However, concentrating and focusing on achieving something specific does not work because anything definable fends off the Enlightenment of that which is One.


NOTES: 

When you forget what and where you appear to be, ‘the Enlightenment of that which One’ sets in

Updated January 29, 2023

_IGP9809-Edit-5

Praying, meditating, fasting, dressing in exotic clothes or being with special people in unique places does not welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One because doing something implies that you are somebody. But if you forget what and where you are, there is nobody to fend off the Enlightenment of that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since it takes more than one to be aware of something, the Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be experienced. Consequently, nobody can tell you what it is or teach you how to bid it welcome. But over time, you can learn not to welcome a world where there seems to be more than one, thus paving the way for the Enlightenment of that which is One. That is the function of Alexius’ Duality Hacks except for the Enlightenment of that which is One. It terminates the experience of more than one without delay.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not use the word Enlightened to describe someone who has achieved a better understanding or a higher consciousness. You do not get wiser or loftier from the Enlightenment mentioned in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings. It is the Enlightenment of that which is One, and it requires more than one to become anything.

Since it also takes more than one to know something, it ends everything you are aware of. That takes a split second or maybe more. It cannot be known because, without consciousness, there is no time. Thus no experience of past and future to hide, there never was or will be anything but one perpetual present.

Most, however, return to the awareness of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one before their consciousness is wholly gone. They avoid it by justifying their fear of destruction with that which is One. Thus they are back in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Therefore, if you do not want to fend off the Enlightenment of that which is One, do not project your fear onto it but include the horror of termination as it is. However, not by embracing it, since that establishes you as someone definitive, but by completely being frightened and nothing else. Then there is not something to define you as someone. Thus nobody to prevent the Enlightenment of that which is One from extracting all your memories of being someone being, leaving them at the edge of a black hole that consumes the emptiness of you, so nothing gracefully falls into that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The return to that which is One does not involve transformation but the destruction of you, so if you are into realising your self, awakening, living in the now, coming from the heart, and whatnot, the Enlightenment of that which is One is not for you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you are visually minded, you seem to return to that which is One as bright light. But if you are more into listening, feeling or tasting, you seem to return as sound, touch or taste. That said, you do not actually return to that which is One because you never left it. It is impossible since doing so requires more than one. But in the context where you believe there is more than that which is One, you seem to return to that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

None of the exciting stories about divine presence, higher self and consciousness applies to that which is One but a world where there seems to be more than one. However, nothing there is real.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Hardly anybody welcomes the Enlightenment of that which is One. But they may like to have glimpses of it because, contrary to the Enlightenment of that which is One, they are experienced without having one’s consciousness erased. Thus you can make up a story to fool yourself into thinking they have awakened or transformed you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is not something to awaken from or return to, nor any awareness to achieve because there is no more than that which is One – and it takes more than one to do something.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As already said, the Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be experienced by somebody. That is why the description in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings comes from somebody having memories of being nobody, falling through a black hole until there was nothing to enter because that required more than one. In other words, although the Enlightenment of that which is One is impersonal, Alexius’ description of it is personal. Consequently, he cannot promise his description of the Enlightenment of that which is One is correct.

But he can guarantee that the descriptions can neither be replicated by you nor him. This is because first, it takes more than one to reproduce something, and second, there is nothing personal in the Enlightenment of that which is One. See also The ins and outs of a black hole.

Nevertheless, his descriptions of the Enlightenment of that which is One may inspire you to undo the belief in being someone definitive. Part of that is to forget everything you have heard or read about Enlightenment – including what you believe to read here.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

No particular posture or surroundings are needed to avoid being affected by thoughts. All that is required is not to be concerned about the outcome. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A particular body posture, state of mind, kundalini awakening or whatnot is not needed to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One because it does not enter the body, aura, chakras or anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one. On the contrary, it undoes all experiences, including primordial energy, consciousness, astral worlds and whatnot. Hence there is nothing but that which cannot be experienced: the formlessness oneness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The world is nothing but a construction of thoughts that seem to have the power to hide that which is One when you perceive them as something specific.

Hence you may conclude it is best to stop thoughts. But they are not what hide the Enlightenment of that which is One. Instead, it is a belief that they establish you as someone.

Correcting that is not about doing something but about not doing what you do to hide the Enlightenment of that which is One, namely taking thoughts seriously. By not doing that, the belief in them as yours cannot be maintained. Therefore, since they cannot establish you as somebody, the Enlightenment of that which is One set in. That said, if there is the slightest belief in being someone, you will not want to be sucked into a black hole and as nothing descend into that which is one. Chances are you immediately return to the world constructed of thoughts because you still cherish one or more of them.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Nobody will know if you have bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. Knowing it requires more than one, thus overlooking the Enlightenment of that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The visual aspect of having glimpses of enlightenment can for example reveal the birth of a universe.The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The visual aspect of having glimpses of Enlightenment can, for example, reveal the birth of a universe. However, it will neither be experienced as if it is outside or inside but nowhere and everywhere. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You do not stop thoughts to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. Instead, you ignore the meaning attributed to them. That does not mean you become aware of the Enlightenment of that which is One. It is impossible to be conscious of the Enlightenment of that which is One since it takes more than one to be aware of something.

For the same reason, you are not in the Enlightenment of that which is One anymore if you return to a world where there seems to be more than one, nor have you been changed or transformed. Yet, there are vague memories of not being anything, so you are to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.

When someone only partially bids welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One, one has glimpses of it. Maybe spaced-out visions of travelling through different universes, seeing Jesus or the birth of a new universe in slow motion, and other exciting things. Still, it is something you are aware of, so it has nothing to do with the Enlightenment of that which is One. Neither if you hear, feel, nor taste it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The Enlightenment of that which is One is an invitation to pass through a hole so narrow that only nothing can pass into a void with no time and space. The spot seems black until a light brighter than anything else extracts all thoughts collected to fabricate an identity of someone specific and leaves them at the edge of the black hole, so there is nothing definable to float into the formlessness of oneness gracefully. In other words, nothing is joining that which is One. The reason for this is that you have never left it. That is impossible because there is nothing outside of oneness since it is formless, thus endless.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Falling through a black hole into that which is one can be compared to falling in love in the sense that nobody is falling. It is as if you are without weight or substance and forever float through an empty void with no beginning and end. And yet it ends, but when it does, it starts because oneness is one perpetual present.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

This is a graphic simulation o the black hole, where you are sucked in by an explosion of light, if you do not insist in seeing forms. If you are willing to be burned up by the pure bright light, there is no one to see – neither nothing to see. All there is, is that which is.

The image is a graphic simulation of the black hole, where the thought construction that holds you together as someone specific is left at its edge, and the nothingness of you is sucked through the black hole by a highly intense light into that which is One. In other words, the last thing you see is a black hole. Then you are no more and never were because it takes more than one to be someone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you believe in seeing something definable, it seems to hide the formlessness of oneness. Thus all you need to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One is to stop focusing on something specific.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The Enlightenment of that which is One is neither light nor darkness or anything in between. Yet light is used to extract all the thoughts used to make up the experience of something, so there is nothing to be sucked into a black hole and spit out on the other side into that which is One. However, there is no other side because there is no more than that which is One. Therefore, this explanation only makes sense as long as you believe in a world where there seems to be more than one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is not uncommon to bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One and afterwards dismiss the vague memories as nothing because what is formless, thus not definable, cannot be shared as something. In other words, since the Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be part of a world where there seems to be more than one, it is often dismissed as real.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The Enlightenment of that which is One does not bring you back to oneness. It is impossible. That which is you is no different from that which is One, and since it is formless, thus endless, there is nothing outside of it. Consequently, you have never been left oneness – only in fantasy.

The Enlightenment of that which is One does not change this imagination but heals the sick belief that it is real. Rebooted as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, you sense this very clearly because even though the memories of the Enlightenment of that which is One are vague, one thing stands out crystal clear: there is no more than that which is One.

So if you look for something big and supernatural that will support you and help you to become more spiritual, the Enlightenment of that which is One is not for you. It does not have anything since it requires more than one to have something.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you accept your life is not rational, you do not look for coherence. Thus it does not frighten you not to understand the Enlightenment of that which is One. Therefore, since you happily forget to make sense of it, no meaning hides that which is One.

Without contrasts, there is nothing but non-duality

Updated January 29, 2023

When contrasts meet they cancel each other out, so if you for example do not exclude negativity in order to experience positivity, you would not be able to judge something as positive. In other words, when all contrasts are included, you would not even be able to experience yourself as someone definitive. You would be that which you always have been and always will be, namely the formlessness of that which is one, which cannot be experienced as there are no contrasts in that which is formless.

If the opposing sides of a contrast meet, they cancel out each other. Therefore, when all opposite sides meet, you cannot perceive yourself as someone definitive. Hence there is nothing to hide what always has been and will be, namely the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

According to science, two worlds were about to evolve in the milliseconds after the big bang: one of matter (the one we believe in seeing) and one of antimatter. But matter and antimatter cannot coexist. If they meet, an incredible amount of energy is released, and they disappear in one big flash.

Hence the brain excludes antimatter from our awareness, so we only experience a tangible universe defined by time and space. That is why science cannot find it, although it must be somewhere, according to their observations of the universe.

When contrast are not kept apart, so that you can experience one part of it on the expense of the other, they annihilate each other in one big flash. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If contrasts are not kept apart to experience one part of it at the expense of the other, they annihilate each other in one big flash. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

However, the world of matter also consists of contrasts, like black and white, which cancels out each other if they meet. That is why you focus so much on the black letters that the white background is almost excluded from your awareness. In other words, not keeping black away from white, they meet and cancel out each other, and you are in a state of not-knowing.

Should you want that you can use hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is freedom to cancel out contrasts. But there are also other ways. For example, defocusing, see Defocusing cancels out contrasts, thus duality. In the below box, you can see different hacks for cancelling out the opposing sides of contrast.

All experiences are deceptive – also the experience of dimension. Reality is more flat than this image, because it is the formlessness of that which is one and formlessness is sizeless. Besides it takes more than one to experience something and as formlessness is endless, there is no more than that which is one. When defocusing contrasts fades out and so the brain cannot fabricate an illusion of reality. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

WAYS TO CANCEL OUT CONTRASTS

If you do not believe to be someone definitive, but you pretend to be it, what you appear to be makes no difference. You can read about this in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

Seeing everything as symbols of the fomlessness of oneness cancels out contrasts because the apparent differences are not perceived to make a difference. Read more about this in hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of oneness.

The more you connect with the empty breath, the more you become indifferent to differences. Thus contrasts are slowly but surely cancelled out. See HACK #5, A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss.

Being alone together, the beholder sees no difference between the experienced and the experiencer. Consequently, time and space stop making sense, wherefore there is nothing to hide reality is the formlessness of oneness. See hack #7.1 Alone together, we go home.

You can also choose to go with the interaction of the opposing parts of a contrast. That will eventually make you feel so complete that disparities disappear, thus contrasts. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #3.1 Inclusiveness sets you free from duality.

Stories about inclusion

Updated January 29, 2023

If a feeling, such as irritation, is not excluded but fully included in your awareness of yourself, it is intense but short-lived. Unfortunately, this intimacy often seems so scary that most prefer to avoid their feelings. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you do not try to escape the moment as it is by excluding what you perceive as unpleasant from your awareness, you enter a state of not-knowing. Should you, out of habit, exclude something, you do not have to correct it. Instead, you include your mistake.

INCLUSION UNDOES THE BELIEF IN SEPARATION
You cannot avoid irritation when you believe to be in a world of duality because it is a world of polarity. That is why you cannot have satisfaction without annoyance. Nevertheless, most people suppress irritation to feel specifically satisfied. But since satisfaction cannot be defined without irritation, what you get is confusion.

Irritation is enhanced when justified with others because blaming them for what you feel is only possible when you believe in separation, which is the cause of irritation.

To hide that you confuse yourself, you blame others for making you irritated. But making them look bad to appear good yourself makes you feel more disconnected and, therefore, more prickly. No worries. It is simply a warning saying do not separate yourself from feelings. Life is all-inclusive. That is why irritation is short-lived if you do not exclude but include it.

Suppressing feelings is painful because it disassociates you from feeling complete. But if a feeling is included to the extent that you are nothing but that, there is nobody to feel incomplete. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Including uncomfortable feelings in this way may seem similar to the Jungian idea of integrating the shadow side of the personality. But inclusiveness, as described in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, is not about becoming whole but nobody.

For example, suppose you do not project the uncomfortable feelings you experience inside yourself onto others but include them by totally being what you feel. In that case, there are no other feelings to define you. Hence you are nobody in the bliss of nothing.

That also applies to comfortable feelings justified by somebody. When you, for example, assume your spouse causes a feeling of love, it has been excluded. But if instead of including feeling love, so you are that and nothing else, you become nobody. Therefore, since there is nobody to perceive the apparent difference between you and others to make a difference, you are free to love your spouse no matter the appearance.

That said, it takes more than one to include something, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless, so inclusiveness is as illusionary as exclusiveness. But contrary to exclusiveness, which enhances the belief in separation, inclusiveness undoes it. Besides, exclusiveness makes you feel alone, whereas inclusiveness makes you feel together while you still appear separated.


Without contrasts, a world of duality cannot be experienced. So when the opposing sides of polarity, for example, light and darkness, are included, there is nothing to define your experience. Hence you are in a state of not-knowing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

EXCLUSION VERSUS INCLUSION
When you include the feelings judged as bad by being nothing but that, there is nothing good to contrast them. Therefore, since there is bad nor good, you are in a state of not-knowing.

That is the way it goes with any other feeling you include. For example, being nothing but sad, there is nothing to contrast it. Thus neither sadness nor its contrast, happiness, seems to exist. As this nothingness momentarily rubs off on the other contrasts making up your personality, there is nobody left to judge the apparent differences of the world to make a difference. Hence you are in a state of not-knowing.

Not being exclusive but inclusive does not mean you must accept all the world’s appearances, but include the disgust that some of them trigger as much as you include the joy that others seem to bring.

Somebody who appears to make you angry helps you to see what you feel. Hence you can include it and enter a state of not-knowing where you are friends with everybody because you are nobody. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

INCLUSION UNDOES THE PAST IN THE PRESENT
Alexius shares his home with five cats. One of them, Guinevere, has a deep territorial instinct. So when a new cat out of the blue showed up in their home, she freaked out and furiously ran away. When she returned, she did not notice the trespasser was still there. Hence she rested on the floor, feeling at home until she suddenly looked around and saw the intruder.

Once again, she furiously left, and even though the new cat had left when she returned, she was still agitated. To prove it was justified, she searched for spots of leftover scent from the visitor. Whenever she found one, she screamed to show Alexius how much the outsider had hurt her.

The anger Guinevere held onto was supposed to scare off the newcomer from returning. However, the foreign cat was unaware of her punishment because it was mainly asleep. But Guinevere was punished by her fury. It was eating her up from the inside.

Maybe it was important for Guinerevere to scare off the new cat because she was afraid it would take her place. Or perhaps the encounter somehow awoke her childhood memories of being betrayed by the people she was living with when they just left her one day. Unfortunately, Alexius cannot know what motivates Guinevere, and she is probably unaware of it.

Fortunately, we do not have to know why we freak out. Nor do we have to go back into the past to find hidden patterns. Instead, we include the present pain by being nothing but that. As already mentioned, that means there is nothing to define what we are. Hence we are free from the painful story we have made about our past.


Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not a new philosophy or religion with a new vocabulary and rules you must learn and strictly follow. Should you not want to include your cats, feel free to exclude them. It does not matter, as long as you include your unwillingness to include. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The idea about living in the now is, like most so-called spiritual ideas, based on exclusion. In this case, the past and future are excluded to highlight a separate point in between them imagined as now. In contrast, a state of not-knowing is not based on exclusion. It arise from including whatever you are aware of in the present moment, including memories of the past and expectations of the future. There are no rules but to be inclusive.

Alexius followed a dried-out river down the mountain towards the sea until the plantation became so impenetrable that he could not make his way through it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

ALEXIUS INCLUDES HIS BULLSHIT
When Alexius was stuck in the rainforest for two days without water and food, he had to make his way through many thorny lianas in the dried-out river he followed down the mountain out of the forest. Sometimes it took half an hour to pass a distance that he would have walked in two minutes if not for the bushes with thorny lianas tightly woven together.

His feet hurt because two nails had been ripped off when he fell down the mountain several times due to branches being so dry that they broke when he tried to hold onto them. Moreover, his clothes were torn apart due to the thorns in the bushes, and his hands were full of blood. Each time he, after intense work, had beaten his way through a bundle of thorny bushes, he felt so tormented that the immense beauty in front of him was dismissed as crap. He blamed the whole world for feeling shitty. But then, suddenly, he had enough of feeling entrapped by conditioned opinions of right and wrong.

In the middle of nowhere, Alexius had no need to go anywhere. Everything was perfect as it was.

Of course, that did not change his hopeless situation for the better. However, instead of trying to get rid of feeling shitty, Alexius included it. Thus what he had perceived as bad did not seem to hide that everything was fine. Every moment inside and outside the thorny lianas was fine as it was. Nothing was wrong or missing.

The movie Man vs. Bee with Rowan Atkinson is a perfect example of solving ones rage by fixing something instead of including it as it is.

That was not an intellectual but an emotional change for Alexius. When he stopped trying to get rid of his frustrations of feeling stuck, he burst out in laughter because there was nothing he needed to escape. Hence the journey in the rainforest seems to mirror how one tries to manipulate the moment into something familiar until, suddenly, the frustrations of never getting it right become too much. Therefore, instead of trying to change the moment to eliminate your rage or disappointment, you include what you feel about the moment unedited, thus entering a state of not knowing.

Since you are unaware of being someone in this state, you do not know the world goes on as usual. However, you do not judge it as usual because there is nobody is in a state of not-knowing. For the same reason, differences are not perceived to make a difference. Therefore, when Alexius finally was wired up from the rainforest by a helicopter and transported back to civilisation, he did not notice the difference.

Fortunately, you do not have to get stuck in the rainforest to enter a state of not-knowing. You can do that anywhere by including your undiminished experience of the present moment. Read more about Alexius in the rainforest here.

A state of not-knowing can last from a split second to 45 minutes. But it may seem as if you are forever in a state of not-knowing while dreaming about a world of something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

TO INCLUDE THE PRESENT IS STRAIGHTFORWARD
It is not complicated to include your experience of the present moment. For example, if the guy in the above image did not notice the Chinese wallpaper the moment the picture was shot, there is no experience of that to include. And if he did not look at the food but indulged in childhood memories, he does not include the food but the thoughts and feelings arising from his memories.

In other words, since he was unaware of the Chinese wallpaper, food, or people passing by, his present moment did not consist of that. Instead, it was full of memories. Therefore, when his reaction to the past is felt unedited, it is included. Thus he is in a state of not-knowing until he holds onto the shape of a specific thought or feeling instead of including it.


See the below articles about protecting and justifying your feelings to disassociate yourself from them:

Inclusiveness is the bliss of nothing

Updated January 12, 2023

Suppose you do not keep the opposite sides in one contrast – for example, winner and loser – away from each other by projecting one of them onto somebody else. In that case, there is no space to separate them. Thus nobody can be defined as a winner or loser.  Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Once upon a time, Alexius assumed that if he justified feeling annoyed with the world, his irritation would be replaced by relaxation. However, it was so stressful to always look for something outside him to blame for the irritation inside him that he did not feel relaxed.

Fortunately, he recognised that if he included irritation by being it to such an extent that he was nothing but that, there was not something to contrast it. Therefore, since the included feeling could not be categorised, it could not be experienced as a specific feeling. AnFworldd since relaxation is defined by irritation, both feelings turned into nothing. In short, he saw that the meaning of the opposing elements, in one contrast, is cancelled out when one of them is fully included. So, in this case, you are neither definable as irritable nor relaxed. Hence you tend to forget to see yourself as someone separated from others, thus entering a state of not-knowing.

However, let us go back and elaborate on being fully inclusive. It does not mean you laboriously have to ensure every bit of irritation is included, but there is a willingness to be nothing but what you include. In other words, it is not about perfection but willingness. Should the latter be lukewarm, you are still fully inclusive if you are willing to include reluctance.

Inclusiveness has nothing to do with acceptance or forgiveness because inclusion leaves nothing to accept or forgive. Neither does it have anything to do with embracing or owning your feelings, as that enhances the belief in being someone definitive, thus separated, instead of undoing it. Inclusion is the absence of separation, which is the bliss of nothing.

In some ways, being inclusive can be compared to what happens when we, for example, see something red outside us. Simultaneously, the brain generates its complementary colour, cyan, inside us to cancel out the contrasting colours and replace them with a neutral grey within us. Since this happens so fast and most only see what they expect to see, they do not notice red is complemented with cyan inside them and the sum of those two, neutral grey, replaces the complementary colours. Instead, they hold onto the experience of red as a singular colour in a world outside them.

This image illustrates how the complementary colours of the RGB colour model’s primary hues turn into neutral grey when they are equally combined. The same applies to the complementary colour that emerges by mixing the primary ones. It also applies to the RYB and CMYK colour modes. Plus, complimentary feelings, such as love and hate. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Grey is always the result of combining complementary colours, as illustrated in the image with the square colours. And you can see that cyan is the complementary colour of red if you stare at red for a sustained time – thirty seconds to a minute – and then quickly look at a white surface. There you see the complementary colour of red, which, depending on the colour model you have conditioned yourself to follow, is cyan or green.

In a world defined by time and space, the colours we believe to see are based on the RYB colour model, where the primary colours are red, yellow and blue. These colours are subtracted from the colours of light, where the primary ones are red, green and blue (RGB). Adding the primary colours of the world (RYB) results in black, and so do the primary colours in the colour wheel of professional printing (CMYK). On the other hand, adding the primary colours of light results in white – see the middle RGB colour model above. Television and computers use the colours of light, the RGB model. Depending on your conditioning, you use either the RYB or RGB model to perceive the complementary colour to red, for example. As you can see in the illustration, it is green in the RYB model and cyan in the RGB model. Most people use the RYB model, where black, not white, is the total of all the colours in the model. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Read about the different colour models in the picture’s caption with round colours. For more comparisons with science-related findings, see the article Without contrasts, nothing seems to hide non-duality. The info about colours is based on Alexius’s research when he wrote a book about colour theory for a Danish Marketing school many years ago.

But let us return to our story about irritation. When included, irritation and its counterpart relaxation are cancelled out. Thus you forget to perceive yourself as someone definitive, wherefore you enter a state of not-knowing. There you may get glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, such as ethereal light, celestial music, intangible sensibility or taste. Please read how to do that in The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them.


The the bliss of nothing is not the same as the Enlightenment of that which is One because it takes more than one to be blissful. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When the internet is down, the thoughts about what is possible to accomplish in cyberspace fade out – so does the image of what you appear to be there.

It is a bit similar to a state of not-knowing. You fail to notice thoughts that seem to manifest you as separated from others. Hence there is nobody to attribute an experience with a specific meaning, wherefore you are in the bliss of nothing.

But there is not someone to know that before a state of not-knowing is over, and the sweet memories of it reminds you of the bliss that comes from not believing to be separated.

As already said, cancelling out the definition of the opposite sides in one contrast is enough to bring you into a state of not knowing. But since there are many contrasts, this state ends when you again feel disturbed by the experience of something you compulsively categorise as a specific feeling, such as hate. However, if you include hatred, you are back in a state of not-knowing. Hate is included in the same way as irritation. So when you are nothing but hatred, there is not something else to define what you are, wherefore you are in the bliss of nothing.

Instead of cancelling out contrasts one by one, you can speed up the undoing of the belief in separation by including fundamental contrasts like within and without, past and future, giving and receiving, high and low or the most basic: expansion and contraction. Many contrasts are a variation of those, so including them incorporates their sub-contrasts. Since that means the experience of separation falls apart, nobody is bothered about being someone definitive. That is a state of not-knowing.

By not excluding but fully including your feeling of worthlessness, you are nothing but that. Therefore, since there is no contrast to define your worthlessness, you cannot be determined, thus not being limited by time and space. Hence you are in a state of not-knowing, which is pure bliss. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being in a state of not-knowing does not mean you do not appear to be someone separated from others, but since the belief in being some momentarily is undone, nobody worries about it. Hence thoughts and feelings are not considered tools for manifesting you as someone definitive but simply for navigating the world. For example, pain may prevent you from walking on a broken leg, and fear stops you from stepping out in front of a car.

In this context, pain does not cause suffering. Neither does fear frighten anyone because when you do not use thoughts and feelings to establish yourself as someone definitive, they are not experienced to result in anything specific. In other words, when not used for something personal, thoughts and feelings do not appear to affect you or the world experienced outside of you, nor do they seem to have been caused by you or anything else.

Trying to understand inclusiveness and categorise when, why or how long you are in a state of not-knowing, before you return to the conscious expereience of being someone defined time and space, complicate things. To be inclusive is simply to not be exclusive. Since the result is a state of not-knowing, you will not get there through understanding.

Since the experience of you as someone substantial in a tangible world defined by time and space is a construction of thoughts, it falls apart when inclusion undoes the perceived separation of thoughts into elements with different meanings. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But as soon as thoughts and feelings are used personally, you are out of a state of not knowing. Thus no longer in the bliss of nothing but the happiness of something specific something. Perhaps, you simply left the bliss of nothing by twisting it into an experience of something definable, such as unconditional love.

Neither will the bliss of nothing last if you remain in that state for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, because without the constant acknowledgement of something specific, the Enlightenment of that which is One set in. And it erases the awareness of something as well as nothing.

Simply put, as long as you want to appear as someone in a world defined by time and space, you cannot stay too long at a time in a state of not-knowing. If you do that, the Enlightenment of that which is One set in, and it erases every memory of being someone in a world defined by time and space. But fortunately, the after-effect of just a split second in a state of not-knowing can last for years. Thus you have a good time enjoying the belief in a world defined by time and space while gently having it undone. See A state of not-knowing and the after-effect.

And that is the purpose of hack #3.1 Inclusiveness sets you free from duality. In other words, ultimately speaking, inclusion is about undoing the belief in being someone in a world defined by time and space. But that requires everything is included immediately. And since you seem to like some aspects of being someone in a world defined by time and space, you may as well enjoy them while slowly but surely including them to have the belief in time and space undone by again and again entering a state of not-knowing.

However, this hack does not intend to explain what a state of not-knowing is, after all, it is not-knowing. Nevertheless, you can read more about it in A state of not-knowing and the after-effect.

Multitasking or defocussing facilitates a state of not-knowing. But this state can also arise from being deeply involved in something when it is not carried out per a special philosophy or an attempt to escape something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If the boxes in the articles disturb you from being focused and centred, they fulfill the purpose. To be in a state of not-knowing, you must forget about being centred, balanced and focused because those concepts are deeply founded in labelling experiences, thus separating them.

Fortunately multitasking takes care of that. It distracts the brain from focusing so that it becomes difficult to categorise an experience as different from another. Applying The taste of Oneness as desribe in The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them helps you defocus. That said, this is mainly meant to be applied for undoing the belief in being someone definitive, not for driving a car, for example.

Duality is a simulated reality on top of non-duality

Updated January 23, 2023

simulated_universe_1372282700_600x275

There is not anything real or unreal because non-duality is that which is One, and it takes more than one to be real or anything else. The image is grabbed from the movie The Thirteenth Floor.

A world of duality is a simulated reality layered on top of non-duality to hide there is no more than non-duality since it is formless, thus endless. However, an illusion cannot hide anything. Hence it is the belief that you are someone definitive in a world of duality that appears to conceal the formlessness of non-duality.

Eyes do not see. It is the brain, that fabricate the images, you believe to ‘see.’ Actually, the brain can produce perfect images of the world with your eyes closed. The brain cheats you. But it is only possible because you want it. Read more about that here.

The belief seems to establish duality as authentic when divided into real and unreal. But in an illusion, everything is artificial. The light from the sun and a bulb are equally fake, and a flower blossoming is not more genuine than a plastic flower. Whether love is perceived as pure, it is unreal, likewise loss, abundance, ego, mind, soul, consciousness, truth, god, angels, spiritual beings or astral planes. Not even non-duality is real because it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to be something.

Wavelengthsof lightcan be comparedto binary data,that is accumulatingthe simulation,of the webpage,you seem to seeon your screen now.Wavelengths haveno form, coloror depth of filed,as it seemsin this pic simulatingwavelengthsand binary data.

Wavelengths of light can be compared to the binary data, that accumulate the simulation of the webpage, you assume to see on your screen right now with words, seeming to form a meaning, and images with colours, that appear to reflect the world where you believe to be. But binary data or wavelengths do not have the form, colours or depth of field, that you believe to experience on this page. And they do not know, they are twisted in such a way, that you think there is a dimensional world with lots of different appearances in this image.

The colourful and dimensional world we believe to see now is an illusion because all wavelengths of light hitting our retina are colourless and formless, and the motion of the image we believe to see has been extrapolated by the brain, so that the time delay in processing the data does not interfere with the events we perceive to happen now.

You are not seeing,what you seem to see.It is an illusion.

What you believe to see is not there. It is a mirage fabricated by thoughts that also are unreal since reality is that which is One, and it takes more than one to have thoughts.

TO KNOW IS TO BELIEVE IN DUALITY
Even within the phoney reality of duality, this page you believe to see on electronic media is an illusion. It is not in your media. An app has translated HTML code on servers far from you into something recognisable. In other words, what you think you see here is layered on code far from you. If your web browser had not rewritten it, you would not see this article about simulated reality.

The digital photos you believe to see are layered on top of digital info that no human would perceive as an image of the world. A data converter has fabricated a layer on top of the digital information that the brain renders into a simulation of the world where you believe in being. However, Alexius is not that technically minded, so he cannot tell precisely how it works – nor how the world of duality seems to work as a layer on top of non-duality.

Actually, metaphorically speaking, you are closer to that which is real, namely, non-duality, if you do not understand how duality works because it does not work. How can it work when there is nothing but non-duality? It is impossible and thus not understandable.

The foolish one cannot separate good and bad or right from wrong. All is symbols of that which is life, and therefore all have the same cause – including you and him. So when he can see all is symbols of that which is life so can you, because life is that which you are a symbol of in the world.


The foolish one cannot separate right from wrong because everything definable is perceived as a symbol of non-duality. Hence their apparent difference makes no difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Wise one can separate good and bad
Foolish one does not separate

Wise one knows the way to self
Foolish one has no self to know

Wise one knows the truth
Foolish one knows nothing

Foolish one is enlightened
Wise one is not

NOT-KNOWING IS THE UNDOING OF DUALITY
Since non-duality is oneness, and it takes more than one to know something, it is impossible to know what and where you are. The acknowledgement of that sets you free from the belief in duality.

You do not need help from Alexius or anybody else not to know what and where you are. Nor can anybody help you regarding that because nobody knows what and where they are. However, some act as if they know not to look foolish but wise.

A world of duality consists of contrast. One of the main ones is right versus wrong. So if you cannot separate right from wrong, the belief in duality fades out.

It can be helpful to read Alexius’ Duality Hacks to stop being ashamed of feeling foolish and, like Alexius, go with not knowing what and where you are. You are not instructed to follow specific steps to improve yourself but guided to foolishly forget what and where you believe in being, thus undoing the belief in duality. This occurs when your appearance as someone definitive is perceived as …

What you believe in being can be compared to code looking at a world of code.

APPENDIX
This is a previous screen dump of the source code behind the first part of this article. In the source code, you cannot see the header, the colours, photos or anything else you experience to see now. The code, which is nothing but letters and numbers added together sometime in the past, commands your browser to fabricate this page when you hit a link or write the name for its particular code. Hereafter, you experience this article without noticing that it is an artificial layer fabricated on top of code.

Thoughts can be compared to code that the brain translates into the experience of duality. However, that is like seeing a mirage. It looks real, but there is nothing there. In the below articles, you can find more detailed explanations of how a layer of duality is fabricated on top of non-duality. That said, none of the explanations is real because there is no duality:


NOTES:

From non-duality to duality and back

Updated November 20, 2022

It is not possible to drink the water from the bottle in this pic, because the bottle is a simulation – but it is possible to imagine to drink the water. The imagination will never quench your thirst though.

It is impossible to get something from the bottles in this image because they are simulated, likewise, from a world where there seems to be more than one. It is forged because there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THAT WHICH IS ONE
… is formless, thus endless, but without taking up any space, it is without size.

Schräge Parallelen

Nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one is what is seems. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Since there is no more than that which is One, you have tricked yourself into seeing a world where there seems to be more than one. You probably also have tricked yourself into seeing the red lines in this image as crocked, when, actually, all lines are straight, and it is the blue boxes that are offset.

WHAT IF THAT WHICH IS ONE …
… could be divided into more than one? It is impossible. Firstly, because it is formless, secondly, it takes more than one to divide oneness. Thirdly, its speed is infinitely fast, so there is no time and space to differentiate anything, thus nothing to see. However, in fantasy, everything seems possible. Therefore, you imagine cutting down oneness’ speed until it is so slow that there appear to be separated appearances in the distance.

The still photo of Scarlett Johansson in ‘Lucy’ is grabbed from the internet.

In the movie Lucy, the director demonstrates, via Scarlett Johansson, that if you speed up time infinitely, any object in motion disappears – or in the context of this article, becomes one. A world where there seems to be more than one is a reverse example. Read more about that here.

One of these separated appearances is perceived as you. But you and everything else is as flat as this article’s images because formlessness has no dimensions. However, in your fantasy about more than one, you have eyes that function like AR (augmented reality) glasses. They modify reality and build a virtual layer on top of it, so when you look at oneness from different angles and distances, it appears to get smaller and bigger.

Graphic by Clive Gifford.The book ‘Eye Benders: The Science of Seeing and Believing’ written by Clive Gifford explains, the brain sees movements that do not exist, and it also fabricates images to fill what it perceives as gaps in the world. Read more about that here.

So, since it seems to exist in time and space, you conclude you are someone substantial in a tangible world, where there is more than one, thus lots of fun. Read more about the illusion of eyes in Eyes do not see.

You probably experience, that you see two differently sized orange circles in this pic, because that is what the part of the brain, that measures perspective and scale, will tell you. Due to the blue circles it appear as they are not the same size. But you are wrong. Each orange circle is the same size. You are also wrong, if you think persons are different, and that they are in a world of duality. It is an illusion. Everything is sizeless.

You probably experience two differently-sized orange circles in this image because that is what the brain tells you to see. But it is one of its many deceptions. The two orange circles are the same size but seem different due to the blue circles. The brain has also deceived you if you experience a world of different-sized objects. It is an illusion. That which is real is formless. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When writing this, Pokémon Go was the most well-known example of AR. But many people live in augmented reality, not only when playing Pokémon Go. They look at their smartphone, where a layer of digital info flows on top of the physical world, while they hear music from cyberspace in one ear and listen to friends from the physical world in the other ear.

Integtating the body with an imagined god or superworld has been a longtime human fantasy. Imaginative fiction, transcendental meditation, aura-transformation and psychoactive drugs can be seen as early efforts to trick you into assuming, the body can be integrated with something immaterial. VR (virtual reality), as it is envisioned by Oculus Rift, may be able to fool you into beliving such a blend is real.

THAT WHICH IS ONE IS REPLACED BY MORE THAN ONE
As mentioned above, imagining seeing a world where there seems to be more than one is like using AR (augmented reality), which is a mix of real and unreal. But to completely erase traces of oneness, AR is soon replaced by VR (virtual reality), where an illusion completely replaces reality.

In a virtual world everything seems possible. It feels very exciting, even though it is an illusion and what you get is nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»This (virtual reality) is a state where you are totally transported into another world and immersed in the digital interactions of the virtual environment you’ve entered … the feeling that you are truly visiting another space that is wholly distinct from what you can see and hear without the platform … a platform like Oculus Rift is an alternative to reality, supplying entirely new, virtual experiences: true VR.« From Wired.

But why do we deceive ourselves into seeing a world where there seems to be more than One. It is probably because there is so much to experience in a world where there seems to be more than one. However, the excitement comes with a price because in such a world – contrary to that which is One – everything comes in pairs. Hence you cannot feel excited without feeling depressed, for example. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

A person always find ways to deny or change appearances in the world that is judged to be wrong, so that it appears to better. But no matter how happy being better may seem to make you, you cannot escape its contrast, sadness, because happiness cannot be experienced without it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A person always finds ways to deny or change appearances that are judged wrong so that it seems to have become better. But no matter how happy it makes you feel, its contrast, sadness, cannot be escaped because happiness needs it to be defined. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen

Most assume they can surpass this twofoldness and be in one state of mind by having one spouse, one work and so on. Others recollect memories of oneness. But they are altered by the desire for more than one, so they do not bring one state of mind. Hence many conclude there are levels of consciousness leading to peace of oneness. But you are either at one or not. And since it requires more than one not to be One, you are that which is One, dreaming about more than One.

That is why twofoldness, the interaction of opposing elements, is the reality you must deal with while having the dream about more than one. For example, you can only read this article because the black letters are contrasted by their opposite colour. Read more about that here. Without contrast, there would be no article – likewise, without hate, there is no love.

The elimination of hatred does not result in a singular state of love but in imitations because you cannot recognise love without hate. Therefore, since excluding hate makes you feel phoney, you try to make love purer by excluding selfishness to get unconditional love. But again, what you get is feeling wrong – and on it goes.

You never feel good enough because your whole being is based on avoiding twofoldness to establish yourself as someone definitive. In contrast, if you go with the interaction of opposing elements, you feel complete. Thus, eventually, you have no need to exclude something to become someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

Believing that a world where there seems to be more than one is real is to be compared to sitting in a cinema, where you project yourself onto the world on the screen so that it appears to have an effect on you, thus appearing real.

Alexius knows there is nothing to hope for because there is no more than that which is One, and it takes more than one to hope for something. Thus he has nothing to fear. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE UNDOES THE BELIEF IN MORE
One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is one knows that there is no more than One. Consequently, a world where there seems to be more than one is fake. Nobody else knows that. What they believe to know is based on speculations about their existence in a world where there seems to be more than one. Thus it enhances the belief in being there instead of undoing it.

A world where there seems to be more than one can be compared to the movie roll in a cinema. Suddenly it breaks, and there is nothing but bright white light on the screen. Read more about this metaphor here. That is the Enlightenment Alexius is to be compared to. But, unlike in the cinema, it is not something you see because it takes more than one to be aware of something.

When the movie roll is put together, and Alexius appears in the simulated world on the screen again, the Enlightenment of that which is One has not turned him into a wiser man or changed anything in the movie. But he knows it is an illusion that can only be experienced due to reality, namely, oneness. More about that in hack #6.1 The Enlightenment of that which is One.

If you experience a flow of beauty, love, sex or colors in this pic totally depends on the perception you have fabricated of yourself as a person. But no matter what you perceive, if you include it all, the moment of watching this pic is perfect – nothing is wrong or missing. Consequently you need no more and therefore are ready for that which is one.

Whether you experience love, sex, or the beauty of a sunset in this image depends on how you have conditioned yourself. But no matter if that makes you happy or sad, it does not seem to make a difference if your response is perceived as a symbol of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

TO SEE SYMBOLS OF THAT WHICH IS ONE IN THAT WHICH IS NOT ONE
Even though you may have been told that a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, your conditioned belief in more than one compulsively makes you see more.

Fortunately, you can undo this belief in a laid-back way by perceiving what you see as symbols of that which is One. Actually, all of Alexius’ Duality Hacks, except the Enlightenment of that which is Oneundo the belief in more than one over time while you have fun experiencing more than one.

That which is one cannot be known in a world where there seems to be more than one – neither anywhere else, as it takes more than one to be aware of something. So rather than pointing to that which is One, Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings point out that there is no more than that which is one.

A GAME IS VIRTUAL AND ONLY APPEARS REAL WHEN YOU PLAY IT
A virtual reality game player is often nauseous because the body is tricked into believing it moves in the virtual world. But you are not there, even though it feels like you are fighting for your life. Actually, you are sitting in a chair with your eyes covered by a set of goggles. An app fills it with a simulated world, and per your response, it seems to create feelings in you as if you are in a real world.

If you, in this description, replace the app with the brain, it becomes a description of appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, where you always feel a bit off because you are not there. Nevertheless, it is possible to feel good while you experience more than one if you know that is an illusion. That said, there is nothing real in a world where there seems to be more than one, so do not mistake this article for the truth, but merely a suggestion to take off the goggles simulating a world that is not there. Of course, this is a metaphor. That which is One is not covered by a simulated world but by the belief that there is more than that which is One.

THAT WHICH IS ONE IS ONE
When you return to oneness, everything is the same. It is as if you have been there all the time, which you also have because there is no more than that which is One.
