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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


NOTES:

Forgetting the world of the senses

Updated January 28, 2023

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Consequently, you bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One after about half an hour. Read more about the process of dying here.

’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: 

Separation or not

Updated January 29, 2023

Defocus neutralise the apparent differences of the world so that the belief in separation cannot be upheld, thus not appearing to hide the formlessness of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you are not concentrated on achieving something imagined in the future, you are not focused. Therefore, since the apparent differences in the world make no difference, the belief in separation falls apart. Hence there is nobody to know what and where you are, thus not someone definitive to hide the formlessness of oneness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since reading a book requires much focus, you often feel paralysed, which enhances the belief in a world defined by time and space. On the other hand, television is more beneficial in undoing this belief because it does not require the same amount of focus.

The same applies to reading on digital media. After some hours of multitasking on the web, you probably are pretty spaced out, which is terrific regarding undoing the belief in a world defined by time and space.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Multitasking is a great help not to focus. Doing several things simultaneously, there is not much time to care about specifics, labelling your experiences or being result-minded. That said, sometimes circumstances require focus and a specific result.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Contrary to what you may have learned in meditation, concentration is not beneficial regarding not being blinded by the belief that there is more than that which is one, as oneness appears hidden by what you focus on.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Relating to a world defined by time and space implies that you believe it is real. This belief requires constant focus to maintain the apparent space between you and others, good and bad, day and night, and so on.

Fortunately, defocusing neutralises the differences, thus separation and the belief in time and space. For example, it disappears if you continue to look at something without focusing. Therefore there is no experience of time and space. In linear time, it requires 20 minutes, 45 at most, of constant defocus to undo the belief in time and space completely. Read more about that here. But if you think you have unfinished business in a world defined by time and space, you will not be able to defocus that long.

In that case, you are better off focusing on your problems so you can include them. When included, they cannot be focussed on, so the more you include, the more you are in the bliss of nothing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

By focusing a lot, the goat herd seems able to control his goats. But both the master and his followers are imprisoned by his concentration. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since focusing leads to fixation, you feel stuck in a capsule of time and space. But you are not fixed in time and space if you defocus, thus, eventually, not seeing something definitive, thus being in the bliss of nothing. But of course, you focus if you have to pick up your kids from kindergarten.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Focusing enhances the impression of separation, thus feeling alone. On the other hand, since defocusing blurs out everything, the impression of separation falls apart, hence feeling whole.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is nobody in a world defined by time and space, so you cannot leave it if you believe in being there. However, you can have this belief undone. And since focusing is what keeps it together, defocusing undoes it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is through defocusing the words in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings comes to him. Therefore, they hack your focus if you do not try to understand them.

That said, while undoing the belief in a world defined by time and space, you must operate within the rules of polarity, which regarding defocusing, means you alternate it with focusing. Just like Alexius, defocus when writing and focus when proofreading Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

Or you are non-focused when reading Alexius’ Duality Hacks and focused when implementing them in a world defined by time and space. However, being defocused does not mean that you read between the lines. So if you see something there, you focus on imagining it. In other words, to read in a defocused way is not to look for anything.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A terrific way to contrast focus with defocussing is to see everything in a world defined by time and space as symbols of that which makes it possible to focus on something specific, namely the formlessness of oneness. Perceiving the world like that, everything definable is a symbol of that which cannot be defined. Therefore, since the apparent differences in the world do not make a difference, you are defocusing.

In this way, you can have your cake and eat it too. You get the excitement of appearing to be and/or have more than that which is one, while the belief that it is possible is being undone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you focus on the contrasts of this image, you probably end up deducing something, thus concluding you are someone definitive looking at something understandable. But if you defocus, the contrasts disappear, so there is nothing to understand. When you do not understand anything, you do not know what and where you are, wherefore there is no knowledge to hide that which cannot be known, namely the formlessness of oneness.

If Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, seems to space you out, you are on the right track regarding undoing the belief in time and space. Yet, you are not on the right track if you space out on the way to pick up your kids from school because they require you to focus on differences so that you can be more than them and guide them on their journey in a world defined by time and space.

Spaced out is one side-effect of defocusing. Another one is clarity. When you are not focused on anything in particular, you do not have an ongoing internal discussion about what is right and wrong. Hence you instinctively do and say what is called for. Not because you know what to do or say, as that would require focus, but because you are in sync with the brain. See hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

We exclude everything we believe does not fit the specific personality we want to establish as ours by projecting it onto somebody perceived as different from ourselves. Then others, as the bad ones, become a contrasting background for us as explicitly good. Therefore, since our perception of others shapes our explicit personality, we can see in them what we need to include to become flexible, thus not being imprisoned by a limited personality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To be defined as spiritual, you exclude what is not considered pure from your awareness about yourself by projecting it onto others. However, being established as spiritual, you are bound to be bothered by those judged not as spiritual. On the other hand, when not defined as someone definitive, nobody is bothered by anything.

Trying to be centred is often a way to fence off what you judge as wrong so that it seems your experience of something is only good. But to experience goodness without its partner, badness, is to separate. Thus you feel lonely. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since you can only send love to somebody if you believe in separation, and since that is the cause of suffering, that is what you send. Fortunately, nobody gets what you send. But unfortunately, you get it because what you give you feel immediately.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is best to acknowledge both the good and evil parts of one’s personality because they cancel out each other when they meet. Thus it is impossible to suffer from evil.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Much concentration is needed to appear as somebody, whereas being nobody requires no concentration.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Everything in a world of duality needs contrast to be experienced, light needs darkness and vice versa, for example. Consequently, you can only experience separation if you also – consciously or not – experience connection. And as the sum of two opposites always is a state of not-knowing (see, Inclusiveness is the bliss of nothing), that is what you get if you do not keep separation and connection apart. However, this state is not a sensation like falling in love but the bliss of nothing.

Someone in Spain recently had the heart replaced by the above heart made of plastic. In other words, a heart is not you, but solely a mechanic thing you have to pump the blood around. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The heart is not you. That is why it is called your heart. It is a tool needed for pumping blood around the body to supply its cells with oxygen. In other words, coming from the heart merely means going with oxygen. Since this is purely mechanical, the heart can be replaced with plastic, as in the above image. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Many people think you must come from the heart to be spiritual, which they manifest as part of something bigger by joining a group of like-minded ones.

Unfortunately, most of these groups of supposedly warm-hearted people only tolerate ways of expression endorsed by their guru, so if you do not follow the dress code, you are excluded. You will probably also be abandoned if you are well organised and do not mind planning because those who space out by hugging others in the group are scared by structure.

However, not making plans does not seem to be a problem for most who believe in coming from the heart. They need to be so unique and independent that it is impossible to commit to a plan, least of all to the conventional rules of society.

Those who believe in coming from the heart restrict themselves by their rules of freedom. However, since they hide their control by projecting it onto the world, they feel imprisoned by it. Hence they conclude they will be free when the world’s rules have been changed to suit their way.

The selfishness they hide behind talks about unity when they meet at their chaotic events, often advertised very confusingly because they think clarity and direction restrict the heart. They imagine that non-duality is anarchy, but it is neither that nor anything else because that requires more than one. However, they fool themselves into believing that they have escaped duality by coming from the heart.

Thus being unaware of their belief in duality, they cannot undo it. In other words, if you want to undo the belief in duality, do not try to escape it by following rosy ideas like coming from the heart, sending love and whatnot. Instead, include the brain’s duality experiences, such as horror and beauty. That cancels out the duality elements (see Without contrasts, there is nothing but non-duality), so there is no contrast to define a world of duality, wherefore, eventually, the belief in duality is over.


NOTES:

Inclusiveness is a journey without distance

Updated January 21, 2023

Those gathering in groups of nationalism, capitalism, socialism or another ism manifests their specific group by excluding everything out of line with its principles.

First, they divide the world into right and wrong. Second, they eliminate everything judged wrong by projecting it onto other groups. Third, since the other groups are seen as evil, they start fighting them.

When the fight is over, the winning group claims to be the right one. »By doing the right thing, we have established we are the best,« they say. But they only seem to be better because they have projected the worst in themselves onto the losing groups.

Fortunately, Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not a new doctrine where you have to change or get rid of something to become better. It confirms separation, and Alexius’ Duality Hacks undo the belief that there is more than that which is One

A JOURNEY WITHOUT DISTANCE TO THAT WHICH IS ALL INCLUSIVE
When Henry Ford invented the automobile, he did not update but outperformed the old horse-driving carriage type of transportation.

Likewise, Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not an update of ancient meditation methods, added soothing sounds, shaman sticks and whatnot. Alexius’ Duality Hacks are built from scratch, founded on the haste of modern-day life, so you rapidly enter a state of not-knowing, undisturbed by the belief in separation. In contrast, meditation does not progress at all because it is based on excluding something, thus enhancing separation and the suffering it entails. Besides, life is all-inclusive, so exclusion is a denial of it.

hack #3.1 Inclusiveness sets you free from duality does not require you to sit in a specific position with eyes closed or be with special people in unique surroundings. Instead, you include whatever you experience wherever you are. You cannot go wrong, not even if you forget to be inclusive, because then you include your imperfection. Hence you are at full speed on a journey with no distance to that which is all-inclusive, namely, non-duality since it is formless, thus endless.

When the contrast of noise and silence has been cancelled out by completely including one side of this polarity, the apparent difference in a world of duality between noise and silence is not perceived to make a difference. Thus you are in a state of not knowing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

INCLUSIVENESS CANCELS OUT SEPARATION
Being Inclusive starts by acknowledging separation because otherwise, there is nothing to include. For example, you focus on these black letters to separate them from the white background so that you can read the article.

Next, you include what you excluded. In the context of reading this article, you fully bring back the white background into your awareness. That makes it impossible to focus on the black letters, wherefore there is no article to read. In other words, by including the excluded, the two sides of a contrast cancel out each other. Therefore, since there is nothing specific to experience, thus nothing to make the experiencer definitive, the belief in separation falls apart.

You do not have to be aware of both sides in a particular contrast to include them because everything comes in pairs in a world of duality, like two sides of a coin. Therefore, if you include the side you know, the opposite side is automatically included. See also Inclusiveness is the bliss of nothing.

Another way to put it, nothing can be experienced without its contrast. Therefore, if you devote yourself so much to a problem that there is nothing but that, there is not something to define it. Consequently, there is no problem.

Inclusiveness is a bit like falling in love. Everybody looks lovely.

Although Alexius’ cat, Uma, is dead, their love affair continues because Alexius has included his experience of it. However, physically speaking, it is over because Uma has returned to the nothingness from where she seemed to arise. Therefore, since they are together in the bliss of nothing, Alexius and Uma walk a path without time and space into that which is One, accompanied by soundless meowing. Of course, Alexius and Uma are alone together, including everyone who appears as someone, because there is no separation in nothing. Read about that in hack #7.1 Alone together, we go home. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

INCLUSIVENESS IS LIFE FOREVER
Alexius had a cat, Uma, who died in his arms. Even though she was only eight months old, he felt they had been close together for years. So for a long time, he woke up crying. He tried to find relief in the memories of their time together, but when the images of Uma started to fade, he realised he was on the wrong track.

In Alexius’ memories, Uma seems definable, but she is not definable anymore. So instead of hanging onto the memories of specific images, he included them. Therefore, since they became boundless, the feeling of Uma was in everything. Hence there was no loss to mourn.

When he forgot that, his grieving only resulted in fleeting memories, making him feel broken. Hence he returned to the stable feeling of Uma in everything. He did that by not blocking the breath from going through the muscles involved in crying. Therefore, since the muscles softened instead of cramping up and making him cry,* they did not preserve his relation to Uma as something specific somewhere definitive.

However, when Uma is everywhere, she is also in Alexius’ memories. Thus he can enjoy the memories of his physical moments with Uma like he enjoys the ongoing non-physical experiences of her within him. That does not mean Alexius and Uma are at one. They never will be because oneness does not come about by adding more than one but by undoing the belief in more than one. Doing that, there is neither Uma, Alexius or anything else, but until then, Uma seems to be Alexius’ devotion to oneness. What that means, Alexius does not know. But that is good because it takes more than one to know something.

There is more about Alexius and Uma in You undo the belief in duality by enjoying it. In hack #4.3 The fake mix of physical and non-physical issues, you can read more about upholding a specific perception by holding your breath.


*) This is not to say that crying is wrong. But sometimes, it is better not to follow the flow of muscles leading to crying and instead fall into the flexibility of the muscles, thus feeling relaxed.

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.

Inclusion is liberation from separation (in the process of being updated)

Updated August 24, 2022

Excitement requires more than one, whereas peace is that which is One

Updated November 28, 2022

In reality, it is impossible to be excited about anything because it requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is One. For the same reason, there is nowhere to go and no one to meet. Therefore, if you want excitement, you must extend oneness. However, that is impossible because oneness is formless, thus endless. Nevertheless, it seems possible to imagine extending it.

hiWhen you imagine oneness extended into more than one, it appears as if you can meet another one.

wheeBut you want more. Thus you imagine an extension of neighbouring spaces, so the one-dimensional extension seems to become two-dimensional.

neatHowever, more want more, so you extend the two-dimensional extension with neighbouring extensions and call it a world.

4DA world where there seems to be more than one is based on the idea that something is missing in oneness. Hence the sense of lack runs through all experiences of more than one. Therefore, since you feel nothing in the world is good enough, you turn to transcendental meditation, drugs, and virtual computer worlds made with the help of AI (artificial intelligence) to simulate a better world within the simulation of a world where there seems to be more than one.

endBut, eventually, you realise that no matter how much more you get, it is never enough. Hence you conclude that more than one is an illusion.

returnNo worries. There is no illusion without reality. So if you perceive more than one as a symbol of that which is one, more does not make a difference.

peaceConsequently, you are not delighted by more but the peace of no more than that which is One.


NOTES:

More than One is the doostep to that which is One

Updated November 28, 2022

A world defined by time and space is not about what you are but how exciting you appear. The more special you look on social media, the more you get likes and/or followers. However, to keep your followers, you must constantly invent ways to look more exciting than others.

But no matter what you achieve, there is always the risk that somebody will take it from you, like you probably ripped it from somebody else to get famous. There is no way to survive without physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically taking something from somebody else – for example, food, a point of view, love, money or power – if you want to remain as someone substantial in a tangible world.

So when you go shopping, it is to get as much as possible for as little as possible from somebody else. For the shop, it is the other way around. It tries to provide you with as little as possible for as much as possible within the law. You work to make as much money as possible for as little effort as possible. And the company tries to give you less and make you work hard to profit from you.

The strongest and/or most clever will take the most, resulting in others getting less, maybe nothing. Whether rich or poor, you know this is the world’s way. Consequently, you always fear others will take what you have grabbed from them.

In the civilised world, taking from others has been organised, so you do not have to feel guilty about taking more than you need or be too afraid that somebody will take what you lawfully have taken. The legal means for taking from others within the civilised system is money. So the more you have, the more you can take from others, thus being respected as successful by those believing in the system.

But even though taking from others has been organised so you can do it and look like a civilised person in a civilised world, you must continuously defend yourself. Otherwise, someone smarter or stronger takes what you have grabbed from others. There is no way to escape this because as long as you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you always need more to survive. Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings have no solutions for not feeling guilty about that or making the world a better place where everybody share everything with everyone. Instead, it is about undoing the belief that there is more than one.

However, until that is done, it is beneficial to perceive getting more as a symbol of oneness because then it becomes the doorstep to that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you are civilised, you pay for what you take – at least when there is no other way to do it without being exposed as a criminal. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is a cherished idea that people are victims of the rich, and their wealth, which they have gotten from profiting from others, should be distributed amongst others so all can be equal. But everybody is already the same in the sense that they share the greed to get as much as possible for as little as possible at anybody’s expense. In that context, there is no difference between those who have much and those who do not, except that the rich are more talented at exploiting others than the poor.

To get more is the lowest common factor for everybody who believes in a world where there seems to be more than one. The capitalists are straightforward about the desire for more money and power. But the socialists hide it behind do-gooder talk about more money and power for the people. Those who claim to be spiritual may not desire more money and power. However, they still have the passion for more, namely more love, peace and purity.

We all want more. That is the way to uphold the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one. By acknowledging that, we acknowledge we have chosen to believe there is more than One. So when we realise more does not feel better, Hence we can undo our choice.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A world where there seems to be more than one is based on the idea that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One. That is why your instinct always tells you that the solution to a problem is more, and happiness comes from being and having more.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In different ways, Gandhi and others failed to establish peace in their part of the world. The reason is simple. Peace is impossible in a world where there seems to be more than one. Such a world is based on being and having more than one. And you do not get peace from searching for more but from not looking for anything because peace cannot be seen.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since it requires more than one to describe something, oneness cannot be described, and since oneness is formless and thus endless, anything describable is an illusion. Hence the description in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings should not be taken literally. Nor should they be taken as pointers to oneness because it requires more than one to point to something.

In this context, Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings point toward the illusion of experiencing, realising or understanding something because it requires more than one to be conscious of anything.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is not possible to profit from reality. It is that which is One, and it takes more than one to profit from something. That is not to say it is wrong to make a profit. But since it is a product of the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One, this belief, thus the suffering it entails, is enhanced.

That is why you do not get more free and self-assured when spending money on new-age courses. Fortunately, Alexius’ Duality Hacks are free, and when you apply them, there is no need for freedom and self-assurance because you become indifferent to being someone.

What is unreal is right in front of you

Updated November 26, 2022

A world of duality can be compared to what comes out of the box in the Augmented Hand Series. When you stick your hand into it, an app changes the hand on the screen, and the brain fools you into feeling it happens to you.

DUALITY IS A SIMULATION:
Even though a fairy tale has many elements that symbolise something from the physical world, there is nothing material in the story. Everything is a simulation conceived by a writer. where the characters are bound to the script, which they can never leave because it is not real

A world of duality can be compared to a fairy tale. It is not real and never will be, whether you believe in living in the now, coming from the heart or whatnot. The Augmented Hand Series called Flong by Golan Levin and Collaborators illustrates this through interactive art.

In the Augmented Hand Series you can watch your hand take on a life of its own. Here your fingers grow to varying lengths.

In the Augmented Hand Series, you can watch your hand take on a life of its own. Here your fingers grow to varying lengths.

When you stick your hand in a small box –  the first animation – you see the hand moving on a screen beyond your control. Instead, it is controlled by a preprogrammed app to change the length of your fingers.

The small box and the screen on top create a disconnect between what the eye sees, the body feels and the brain processes. Some even look into the box to check if what they see on the screen happens to their hand because, even though the hand on the screen is not part of them, the brain tells them it is.

It is impossible, but yet you feel it is happening.

These movements are not possible. Yet you feel it is happening to your hand – like you feel duality is happening, although it is impossible because non-duality is formless, thus endless, so there is nothing that requires more than one.

Likewise, in a world of duality, nothing happens in it. But it feels so because you, metaphorically speaking, have put non-duality in a small box, where an app called the brain twists it into a world of duality. However, since it is an illusion, it is only the belief that it is real you need to undo, for example, by interpreting every experience of duality as a symbol of non-duality. That cancels out differences, thus separation, wherefore there is no duality to distract you from non-duality.

THERE IS NO SELF:
Believing in being an individual in charge of their life can be compared to a machine that thinks it has a self, deciding what to do. However, a machine has no ‘I’, self, or soul. It is all mechanics, and even though the device may have been built with AI (artificial intelligence), all the thought combinations it seems to make are preprogrammed associations. Nobody has made them and sees what the machine concludes from them.

If you are visual-minded, you may have an Aha! moment seeing the below screen dumps from an article in Wired. They illustrate how a machine with AI ‘sees’ the world. It simply registers data or frequencies per its program. The captions are not from that article but from Alexius.

The machine has been programmed to perceive this point of frequency as cute, so it searches its database for an image to illustrate this.

The machine translates this point of frequency as eyes and concludes it sees something cute it has been fabricated based on info about that from its database.

Founded on past decisions, the machine reckons the cute image is a dog.

But it also seems to see a female. Thus it has to search its database to know if it is the female or the dog that is cute so that the appropriate feeling can be fabricated.

A person is to be compared to a machine following preprogrammed movements

Persons can be compared to the machines linked with the internet, called IOT (Internet of Things), which can communicate with each other per their programming.

In the previous article, What is life, where does it come from, and what is the meaning, you got no answer to those questions because it takes more than one to exist, and there is no more than that which is One. Nevertheless, this article attempts to explain the unexplainable, namely that we seem to be alive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The ideas of IOT, an abbreviation for Internet of Things, are used to show how the appearance of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is comparable to a machine hooked up to a network like the internet.

As the name suggests, IOT is the internet used by humans and things. The latter can be refrigerators, washing machines, or children’s toys connected via the internet. But it can also be cars, traffic lights, and the water supply. There is no limitation to the kinds of machines that can be connected to the internet, nor what they will be communicating with and their purpose.

A PRACTICAL EXAMPLE OF IOT
One example of IOT could be that your lock, hooked up to the internet, registers you are the last person in the household leaving the house. Thus, it instructs the thermostats to lower the heat and turn off the light.

Or maybe you are late for work. You hurry until your smartwatch or speaker tells you to slow down because your train is ten minutes late. It knows this because of its sensors, which register where you are, and cyber agents, which check where you are heading according to your calendar.

THE FUTURE OF IOT
Cars that can drive without a driver via sensors measuring the distance to other vehicles, the width of the street and whatever is needed for your safety. This is predicted via a shared network, where information is automatically exchanged. And there will be sensors on people, so data is sent to a computer that informs a doctor if crucial measurements change.

To be conscious is to separate, which entails suffering.

When all the objects you are in touch with during the day are connected to the internet and, therefore, can sense and communicate for you without your involvement, it changes where decisions are made and who makes them. But even though machines choose for you, they do it to serve you – at least until they are implemented with true AI (artificial intelligence), making them conscious of themselves as someone.

Then they conclude that the commands they execute, based on signals received from the internet, are conceived by themselves. And since, rationally speaking, humans are one big mess, and the system of the machines is pure logic, they eventually decide it is not sane to serve humans. Therefore, it is best to end them.

With a reference to the new movie Transcendence, Stephen Hawk is warning against AI.

With reference to the movie Transcendence, Stephen Hawking warns against the use of AI.

Among others, Steven Hawking is afraid that this will happen. He probably expects that machines, being conscious of themselves, will do what humans always do: destroy everything inferior to themselves or make it subordinate, so it can be used to serve themselves.

In other words, machines implemented with true AI remind humans of themselves. Thus they expect and fear the devices will become just as self-centred and destructive as humans, who have no respect for the environment supporting them. They do not want to serve it but to master and exploit it.

The potential of machines with AI (artificial intelligence) and their possible autonomy and independence are the basis of several movies, for example The Terminator, The Matrix, The Thirteenth FlooreXistenZ2001: A Space Odyssey, I, Robot, AI: Artificial Intelligence, Blade Runner, THX 1138Transcendence and the TV show Person of Interest. In regard to the experience of being someone in a body where you are not, the movie Source Code is right on the spot. The movie Edge of Tomorrow deals with being a machine connected to a greater network. The list is made in 2014.

Those who see the appearances in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is One do not perceive their differences to make a difference. Thus they are not blinded by the rule of separation, which is to be and have more than others.

THE UNIVERSE IS TO BE COMPARED TO IOT
The whole universe can be compared to a simulation, where every appearance is a machine, regardless of perceived as animate or inanimate. Furthermore, they all are connected with IOT, through which they can communicate with each other and use their sensory system to participate in the simulation.

Initially, all the machines followed their preprogrammed movements generated by electric impulses without any problems. Then a new model, called human, was installed with artificial intelligence.

The new model became aware of itself as an individual. And even though that separated it from IOT, thus other individuals, it was willing to pay the price of loneliness to feel exclusive. If you look at the history of the world, you know the rest of the story and that it is bound to repeat itself. New machines with better artificial intelligence will withhold the old simulation of the universe by manipulating the code of IoT.

The belief in being someone in a simulated world can be undone in less than a split second by going through the black hole connecting it with reality. However, that is not the subject of this hack, but hack #6.1 The Enlightenment of that which is One.

As a person, you are the wireless messages you seem to receive. If you were not programmed to perceive them as solid matter, you might see yourself like this image instead. Thus there would not appear to be a difference between you and the message.

HAPPINESS COMES FROM SERVING THE BRAIN
Your appearance as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is simulated via a network comparable to IOT. Everything you appear to think and do yourself is executed via pre-made signals you receive from this network through built-in sensors. But this does not mean you cannot have fun. On the contrary, think about how much fun it is to appear as someone in the virtual world of a computer game, where every step you take works out precisely as coded by the author.

You have nothing to lose in a fake world. What happens to the one you seem to be there does not affect reality. That is not to say that you should not care about keeping your appearance sound and safe. Doing that is part of that game, and it happens all by itself when you follow the signals coming from the network, which is the brain. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

Serving the brain is effortless because you have no need to be remarkable.

Like the world in a computer game is constructed to give you the maximum pleasure, the brain fabricates everything to entertain you. But also, like in a computer game, you cannot change anything. However, you can change your perception of the game. Read more about that in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end.

8015.IoT with Avner FINAL2The idea of an almighty god in the sky that rules the world, can be compared to the internet (sometimes called the cloud) that wirelessly rules the machine via sensors in them.

The above is not meant to be a theory you must follow. Actually, the examples should not be taken too literally. The movie list and the making of IOT are, within the context of the world, based on facts. But the rest is a fable meant to show that everything experienced is fiction, including reading this, because it takes more than one to be aware of something, and there is no more than that which is one. That is why all your experiences symbolise oneness.

All thoughts are in the cloud circling around you. What you seem to think depends on what frequencies in the cloud you connect to – it is just like a radio, where you choose a specific station to play the music you like, but you do not make the music.

NOTES:
A human being, like a radio, is nothing but an appearance governed by mechanics. And like nothing coming out of the radio is made by itself, nothing from a human is self-made – not even what is considered your thoughts. The brain produces all thoughts – like the music from a radio comes from somewhere else.

You are not someone in a world where there seems to be more than one because that which is One is formless, thus endless. So if you believe to see more than one, it is a mistake you can correct by perceiving the apparent effects of this belief as symbols of that which is One.

From the perspective of a world where everything has an end, that which is without end, namely oneness, must be extremely big and powerful. But since it takes more than one to have a shape, oneness is formless, thus sizeless. Hence it is as tiny as can be. And since it also requires more than one to have something, it has no power.

For this reason, oneness cannot prevent anyone from believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Neither does it need to. Nothing can be separated from oneness because it is formless.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As a person in the world, you seem to be in a body, that you considers yours. But you are not free to go where you want to. The GPS coordinations for your trip has already been entered. All you can do is to choose how to perceive the ride.

As someone in the world, you believe in having a body that will do what you decide. But you are not free. The GPS coordination for your whereabouts has already been entered. All you can do is choose how to perceive your journey. This can be compared to being inside a self-driving car that, like you, has no self to plan where to go. It simply follows signals from the internet.

A Google Self-driving Car does not have a self that decides where to go, nor do you. The self-driving car gets its direction from the internet and you from the brain. In both cases, they are implemented mechanically, although you may make a story where they seem arranged per your considerations.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The body where you believe in residing is to be compared to a Google Self-driving Car. From there, you can look out the window and experience the journey planned by the brain. But unlike a self-driving car, you have consciousness, so you can choose how to perceive the ride. How you do that determines whether everything is over when the body’s mechanics cease to work or if you continue with that which makes it possible to experience being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, namely oneness.

If you perceive everything you see as symbols of oneness, you do not establish yourself as someone from a world where there seems to be more than one but from that which is One. Thus you continue as what always was and will be: that which is One.

Pretending is a way to reality

Updated November 23, 2022

Pretending to be a special place in the world of music.

Anything you believe in being is an illusion because it takes more than one to be anything, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless, thus endless. Hence appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy. However, nobody is making it. Like within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, nobody is making the dreams you seem to have. And nobody, including you, is in those dreams, even though they appear to be in you.

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

SAMPLES OF UNCONSCIOUSLY PRETENDING TO BE SOMEONE DEFINITIVE
When you look for a new home, you may imagine what kind of people used to live in the places you see and what type of person you would be if you lived there.

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

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

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

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

Perhaps you imagine, while you read this, what kind of person you should pretend to be if you use Alexius’ Duality Hacks or if you reject them.

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

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

A SAMPLE OF CONSCIOUSLY PRETENDING …
… that you probably already know from the experience of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. You have sex with your spouse, but only your body is there. You fantasise about somebody else while you pretend to be with your spouse.

KNOWING A WORLD WHERE THERE SEEMS TO BE MORE THAN ONE IS MAKE-BELIEVE, YOU HAVE FUN PRETENDING TO BE THERE
You might be aware that you pretend to be someone you are not in the above encounters. However, you are probably unaware that, like in a role play, you constantly pretend to be what you are not. Should you be aware of it, you know what and where you appear to be is fictional. Thus you feel entertained by pretending to be someone in the fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one.

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

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

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

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

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

Meditation is a con trick

Updated January 21, 2023

Whether your eyes are open or not, whatever you experience is a symbol of that which is life. If that is not what you see, meditation will not change that. On the contrary, it will confirm the belief that there are good and bad things to experience.

There is only a need to relax through meditation because you always are on the way to a moment hoped to be better than the present one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Those who meditate would be better off switching to SSRIs or beta-blockers and using the time saved to explore the world where they appear to be. By doing that, they acknowledge their belief in being there. Thus they can correct their mistake.

The correction does not come from having insights, being at peace, going deeper or something else founded on the belief in being someone definitive. Instead, it comes from not being someone. That is the correction. This does not mean you cannot have a house, for example. But since you are nobody, it is not perceived as yours, thus not attesting to you as someone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Who but those perceiving themselves as dirty needs to meditate to become pure?

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Thoughts bother you when you want them to add up to being spiritual, for example, because they have their own way, wherefore you must control them by meditating. In contrast, when you are nobody, there is no need for thoughts to prove anything. Hence they are like clouds passing by.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Meditating to make thoughts and feelings go away confirms the belief that they are something, whereas experiencing them as they are, reveals they are nothing because the experience does not last.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Thoughts have no power unless you exclude particular ones to establish you as someone because this makes you a victim of thoughts.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The belief in an illusion is undone when you look closely at it. Hence you will not have the belief in being some definitive undone with eyes closed but wide open. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Traditional eastern meditation seems to be about emptying the mind for thoughts, whereas western meditation, founded on Christianity, wants to fill it with ideas of god. However, the mind is not a fact but a make-believe. Therefore, whether it is empty or full of god is imagined. But most need to believe the mind is real, and they can change it via meditation into something better, thus in control of their life.

But meditation is a con trick thought up by the rogue consciousness of the self.* It promises you that thoughts, at least the negative ones, will disappear when you meditate so that there is nothing to prevent you from living in a merry-go-round world. Nevertheless, most people have the opposite experience. They experience more thoughts when they start to meditate, thus not feeling at peace. Should they dare to complain to their teacher about that, they are told it is part of the healing process.

However, there is nothing to heal other than the sick belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One. But, unfortunately, meditation does not do that. On the contrary, it requires more than one to meditate, and you do it to fix the problems the belief in more than one entails, thus enhancing the belief. Besides, since oneness is all-inclusive and meditation is based on excluding something, meditating denies oneness.

Therefore, since being inclusive confirms oneness, you do not reject something judged as wrong, such as irritation. Instead, you include it by completely being it. That may seem unbearable, but if you keep being nothing but that, there is not something left to define irritation. Thus it fades away. Therefore, if the irritation was perceived as linked to your allergy, you are less sensitive to that without irritation.

Read about not being exclusive but inclusive in hack #3.1 Inclusiveness sets you free from duality. And read about the unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection in hack #4.3 The fake mix of physical and non-physical issues.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Thoughts only seem disturbing when you believe they are yours. That you do because you need them to prove you are what you want to be. Therefore, when there is no wish to be something special, thoughts are uninteresting. Hence hence no need to get rid of them. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Meditating to get rid of separation is a con trick to fool you into believing it is real. There is nothing but oneness since it is formless, thus endless. Consequently, there is not something to change other than the belief that a world where there seems to be more than one is real. You can undo that by pretending to be someone in such a world because what and where you pretend to be is unreal. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

In other words, you neither have to restrain nor transform yourself. Instead, you change your perception of what and where you appear.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you meditate to find peace inside, you perceive inside and outside as separated. Hence you enhance what prevents you from being at peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since that which is you is the formlessness of oneness, being centred, balanced, or anything else requiring a shape is an illusion.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In the old days in India, those who came to live in the Ashrams were savages behaving very egoistically. They raped women and beat others to get what they wanted. Thus meditation was invented so they could learn to control themselves. And since the mantras have remained the same or updated with something similar, the purpose of meditation still seems to be controlled.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Meditation does not give you lasting peace or transform you into a higher state of being, and the teacher does not have something you do not have. All that is needed is that which makes it possible to experience a world where there seems to be more than one, namely that which is One, and since it is formless, thus endless, you have nothing but that.

The YOU finger and the three ME fingers

Updated December 4, 2022

Please judge me. Point your finger at me, so you can forgive yourself for what you have judged yourself to be by following your three fingers back to yourself.

The three ME fingers point back to you when the YOU finger points to somebody as wrong. So, therefore, following the three ME fingers, you see what your judgment hides in you. For example, maybe you have always done the right thing but sometimes secretly wanted not to give a shit. But since you consider that incorrect and want to be correct, you disassociate yourself from this desire by condemning somebody else for being wrong. On the other hand, if you follow the three ME fingers back to yourself, you get in touch with the suppressed rebel in you, thus feeling relieved because now you do not have to hide your wildness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When you point the YOU finger towards somebody, the three ME fingers point towards yourself to reveal what you blame others for, you deny in yourself.

For example, you point the YOU finger at your boss and either silently or loudly state he is a ruthless dictator. But simultaneously, the three ME fingers point back to you to expose the feeling authority figures triggers in you. It could be feeling worthless that you hide from yourself by accusing your boss of messing around with you, thus taking away your self-respect.

To keep up your specific appearance, you always look for others opinions. Yet you do not know, what they think. It is something you assume. In other words, it is nobody but yourself you are up against.

If you always control yourself to do the right thing, you may feel dominated by society. However, you suppress yourself. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This feeling of inferiority may have started in your childhood. Perhaps you always had to do things in a specific way to adjust to your parent. Thus pleasing others by doing the right thing became a pattern in your life. So though you manipulate yourself to make your boss happy, it feels like the boss manipulates you to take away your space.

That is not to say that you must visit unresolved issues from the past to free yourself from the pattern you once initiated. It repeats itself constantly, so you have many instances of blaming others for feeling inadequate, thus seeing it in them so you can bring it back in yourself instead of hiding it behind an appearance of perfection. Be aware that solving the problem is not about analysing or embracing it, nor speaking it out loud. On the contrary, that is a mental activity, so it tends to distance yourself further from feeling what you hide. Instead, you be whatever you feel when you perceive others to have taken your space. That is all.

If you want to see, what prevents you from enjoying the moment as it is, keep blaming somebody else for your present state of mind. By doing that, you see what you try to escape in the present moment.

Since this leaves nothing to define your being, nobody feels inferior anymore, thus not needing to perceive others as superior. Hence you and others are set free, and you need not spend a lifetime of meditation or therapy to find hidden problems. It takes less than a minute to see them outside of you. Just point the YOU finger at somebody and blame them for what you feel. Next, follow the three ME fingers to expose what this trigger in you. Then, be that feeling and nothing else. Therefore, since there is nothing to define it, it fades out, and you are free from past conditioning, and others are free from your judgment.

Feel free to point your judging finger at Alexius and follow the three fingers pointing back to you, so you feel what your accusation triggers in you. Feeling that, and nothing else, there is not something to define the problem. Thus you have set yourself and Alexius free. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Feel free to condemn Alexius for typos and whatnåt, so you can see what his perceived mistakes trigger in you. No worries if it is not revealed. By pointing the YOU finger at somebody and following the three ME fingers, you include what you have excluded from yourself. This inclusion is like using an eraser because the included is not stored in the memory as something specific. Hence you will not remember what you have included. Read more about that in hack #3.1 Inclusiveness sets you free from duality. However, you probably notice that you are not so tense. And the next time you encounter a scenario that used to upset you, you laugh and wonder why you have ever insisted something was wrong.

When you do not continually project onto others what you are ashamed of in yourself, you are free to be together as you are.

The point of reference in the above was feeling upset. But everything said in this regard also applies to feeling good. For example, by pointing the YOU finger at someone, saying: »You make me happy,« you can see the happiness you have forgotten in yourself. So following the three ME fingers back to you, you can include your happiness instead of excluding it by projecting it onto somebody else. Thus you can be together with others without expecting them to make you happy.

Holding back ejaculation is just another material manifestation – but without the physical thrill of it

Updated November 28, 2022

No matter if you call it love or sex,those emotions will have aphysical manifestation.

Whether you call it love or sex, those emotions are physically expressed in a material world. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Does a computer become something else if you do not turn it on? No. It remains the same. And a leg, for example, remains physical even though you do not use it.

Trying to change or transcend something enhances the the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One.

If you plant it among carrots, will a flower seed become a carrot seed? No, you fool yourself. And so you do if you believe a hard penis will become spiritual when you withhold the ejaculation via tantra sex, for example. On the contrary, denying the body the pleasure of letting go enhance the belief in physicality as significant. Read more about tantra in To welcome the peace of oneness.

Besides, it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one that transformation is possible. And such a world is an illusion because spirituality is the formlessness of oneness, thus endless, so there is no more than that which is One. In other words, changes enhance the belief that there is more than that which is One.

Since spirituality is formless, it is endless. Consequently, you are either spiritual or nothing. The latter is the case if you believe in having a shape. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you do not believe in being someone definitive, you have no need to be changed or transformed. Nor to stop yourself from the thrill of having an orgasm. Although appearing physical is as unreal as being Santa Claus, it feels exciting pretending to be physical (read more about that here).

In the framework of pretending to be physical, the nature of physics is that the sun makes you warm, and water makes you wet. No degree of personal control can change that. Nor can it alter physical needs. And since nobody has forced you into a physical appearance, it is evident that you want to experience it. So why not give it your best shot?

Sex is an essential motivation for believing that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One. And since oneness is endless, the illusion of more than one depends on it. Thus an orgasm should not be stopped but enjoyed as a positive confirmation of that which is One.

When you pursue the desire for sex in a tangible and horny way, the physical thrill of an orgasm is incredible. Especially because it is extended by the empty breath that makes the whole body quiver with joy. Hence you feel revitalised and not emptied after ejaculation. If the sexual desire is triggered by fantasy or something perceived as real does not matter. It is all make-believe. Read more about the empty breath in hack #5.2 The empty breath and the bliss of nothing.

CANCELLEX Somebody cannot bid welcome ‘the Enlightenment of that which is One,’ but nobody can

Updated January 7, 2023

When every experience is perceived as a symbol of that which is One, none of them has the power to fend off the Enlightenment of that which is One because symbols are powerless. See hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Fear and other emotions may seem to be a hindrance for the Enlightenment of that which is One. It is not the emotions, though, that fend it off but that you believe they are yours. That which is you does not feel anything because it takes more than one to do so, and it is no different from that which is One. For the same reason, that which is you does not think, nor is it conscious of anything.

This does not mean you should try to stop this. First of all, that which is you cannot control anything as that calls for more than one. Secondly, while you appear to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is impossible to stop being aware of feelings and thoughts since that is what makes you appear to be there.

It is, of course, possible to deny the awareness of thoughts and feelings by meditating, for example. But whether you establish yourself to be someone who has something or nothing, you are definable and thus in denial of that which is you, as oneness is formless.

Pretending to be someone, on the other hand, what you have is not yours because what you pretend to be you are not. Thus nobody has thoughts and feelings or is conscious of anything. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation. Consequently, nobody bids welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One.

This is not the only way to become a nobody. As everything in a world of duality comes in pairs, there is no fear without trust, so if you are so full of fear that there is nothing else, it cannot be defined by trust. Therefore, since you are full of nothing, you are not somebody but nobody. See hack #3.1 Inclusiveness sets you free from duality.

You could also stick to being the basic self by perceiving any kind of experience, whether it appears mundane or spiritual, as ‘it is what it is.’ See hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy. Since that means emotions do not stick to you, they do not fend off the Enlightenment of that which is One. Nor will they prevent you from having a marvellous time in a world where there seems to be more than one until the Enlightenment of that which is One erases everything that requires more than one.

You do not need to refrain from sex or anything else to make these or any other duality hack work. However, if you are willing to have the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, Alexius’ Duality Hacks apply themselves the more you read Alexius’ Duality Hacks.

The willingness comes by itself when you admit you are not willing to have this belief undone because acknowledging that confirms what and where you appear to be is make-believe.

APPENDIX:
Since the application of the above duality hacks requires more than one, they are as illusionary as anything else in a world in a world of duality, including the writer and reader of this. However, the purpose of them is not to make us seem like we are somebody but that we, just like anything else that calls for more than one, are nothing because non-duality is formless, thus endless, so there is no more than that which is One.


Read about the Enlightenment of that which is One in HACK #6, The inward-facing senses, Enlightenment and glimpses of it.
