Inclusiveness is a journey without distance to that which is endless, namely non-duality

Updated March 23, 2022

Those gathering in groups of nationalism, capitalism, socialism or another ism manifests their specific group by excluding everything, not in 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, therefore, seem evil, they start to fight them.

When the fight is over, the winning group claims to be the good ones. »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’ Duality Hacks is not a new doctrine where you have to change or get rid of something to become better. On the contrary, there is no goal but to undo the belief in separation because, without it, there is nobody to change.

A journey without distance to that which is all-inclusive
When Henry Ford invented a faster vehicle than a horse-driving carriage, it was not just an improvement of the old type of transportation. Instead, he surpassed it and developed a new and much faster vehicle.

Likewise, Alexius’ Duality Hacks is not an update of ancient meditation methods, added soothing sounds, shaman sticks and whatnot. The hacks are built from scratch, founded on the haste of modern-day life, so you rapidly enter a state of not knowing and its bliss of nothing. On the other hand, meditation progresses at the pace of a horse-driving carriage, as it is based on the idea that you must exclude something to get better. Therefore, since there is always more to get rid of, you keep separating, thus never reaching wholeness.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks are about undoing the belief in separation by including the opposing parts in the contrasts making up the world of duality, such as the past and the future or good and evil. This does not require restraint, concentration, realisation or perfection.

But Alexius’ Duality Hacks is based on inclusiveness. This does not require sitting in a specific position with eyes closed or being with special people in unique surroundings. Instead, you include whatever you experience wherever you are. You cannot go wrong, not even if you forget being inclusive, because if so, 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.

You do not get to live in the now by excluding the past and the future because life is inclusive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When inclusive, a problem contains the solution
Being Inclusive starts by acknowledging separation – otherwise, there is nothing to include. For example, to experience something as specifically good, you must separate it from its opposite, bad – just like you exclude the white background that contrasts these black letters from your awareness to focus on reading the article.

If you begin to include these letters, they start to blur. Eventually, there is not anything specific to see, wherefore there does not appear to be something hiding the formlessness of oneness.

Next, you include what you excluded. In the context of reading this article, you fully bring back the white background into your awareness. This 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 polarity 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.

By the way, you do not have to be aware of both sides in the polarities to include them. Instead, you include the part you are conscious about. This automatically incorporates its counterpart because everything comes in pairs in a world of duality, like two sides of a coin. See also hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

In other words, when one side of a coin is included, there is nothing to define the other side. Hence the sides do not appear separated but partners putting together a coin experience. Regarding feelings, if you include pain, for example, it is revealed to be in an alliance with its counterpart relief. Hence your problem contains the solution.

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 causing suffering.

This is not the way to realise non-duality. It cannot be known because it takes more than one to become aware of something. But it is a way to see that there is no more than that which is One. This you realise when you are fully inclusive. But you probably start little by little. No worries. As already said, inclusiveness is a journey without distance.

When you know nothing, there is not something to hide the formlessness of oneness

Updated March 23, 2022

Since it takes more than one to lose something, and reality is that which is One, you cannot lose something that is real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks are a fable. Nothing about non-duality is true because it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to describe something. For the same reason, there is no duality. In other words, there is nothing but oneness since it is formless and therefore endless. However, since formlessness cannot be defined, this is also a fable.

Therefore, since Alexius’ Duality Hacks is nothing, applying them, the belief in being something is eventually washed out. Hence no appearances seem to hide, there never was or will be more than the formlessness of oneness.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks applies themselves when you keep reading them.

 

It is nothing but robots trying to fool you into believing you are not a robot

Updated April 26, 2022

Nobody knows if you are a dog or even exist on the internet. The graphic is a Peter Steiner cartoon, initially published in The New Yorker.

You can compare a world where there seems to be more than one to an online world with nothing but robots. It might sound potentially interesting to communicate with them. Unfortunately, the robots try to persuade you into believing their world is real and they are alive. However, there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless, so if you believe the robots, you want to be and have more than that which is One.

The moment you do not want that, there is no need to believe the apparent differences in the robots’ world make a difference. Thus they cannot define you as someone, wherefore there is nobody to hide, there is no more than that which is One.

This is not to suggest that you should stop the desire for more. On the contrary, it would imply it is possible to be and have more than that which is not one. But if you do not try to do something in particular, you neither avoid nor go for more. That is what Alexius’ Duality Hacks bring about.

Since it takes more than one to exist, and there is nothing but oneness, existence is unreal

A common way to prove you exist is to pinch the arm and conclude you are alive because it hurts. However, this experience of physical pain is constructed by the brain, and if you are unreal, so is the brain. Consequently, the experience proves nothing but that you want to believe you are real. However, reality is not something that can be acknowledged. It is that which is One, and since it takes more than one to have a shape, it is formless and therefore endless. Hence there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness.

Fortunately, Alexius’ Duality Hacks undo the belief in being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Reality cannot be known because it is that which is One and it takes more than one to realise something

Updated March 23, 2022

Since non-duality is that which is One and it takes more than one to experience something, it cannot be realised. So when you are not aware of anything, nothing seems to hide that which cannot be known. The purpose of Alexius’ Duality Hacks is therefore not to realise non-duality but that being aware of something is an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Mysterious experiences or writings like zen poems have nothing to do with non-duality. It is not mystical, pure or anything else because it takes more than one to be something and non-duality is that which is One. Hence Alexius’ Duality Hacks, like everything else that calls for more than one, is part of the illusion that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One.

But since Alexius’ Duality Hacks expose this illusion, you are also revealed as nothing when you apply them. Hence there does not seem to be something to hide, there never was or will be more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless.

No matter what and where you appear to be, it is like in a dream, you are not there. It is a fantasy. Nobody, however, is making it because there is no more than that which is One and it takes more than one to do something.

This may seem to take some time. But that is part of the illusion. There is no time because reality, namely the formlessness of oneness, is one perpetual present. Read more about that here. That is why there is no hurry to undo the belief in being someone with a beginning and an end. Nor any reason not to enjoy that. Read more about that in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end.

Whatever that you are aware of is an illusion because it takes more than one to be conscious of something

The belief in being someone is bananas

Updated November 12, 2021

The brain creates the experiences you have in a dream, so it seems you are somewhere else than in your bed. The same applies to the experiences you have when you assume to be awake, except you are not in a bed somewhere but nowhere, as everything experienced is created by the brain from out of nothing to make it look like there is more than that which is One. But since oneness is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is One. So if you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you trust the brain when it claims your experience of this is assembled from frequencies picked up by the sensory system, although your experience solely is fabricated by the brain. Read more about that here. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

No matter where you experience being in a dream, it is an illusion created inside you because you are in your bed. The same applies to where you experience being when you believe to be awake. In this case, however, it is not a dream happening inside you while you sleep in a heavenly bed.

There is no heaven, nor somebody having a dream or anything else because that requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless. Alexius’ Duality Hacks, therefore, is as fake as anything else that calls for more than one. Nevertheless, when there appears to be someone who believes, it is possible to be and have more than that which is One, Alexius’ Duality Hacks undo that belief.

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

Updated March 23, 2022

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 life. 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 #3.2 Inclusiveness is freedom.

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 and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is One.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, consistency is a fabrication

Updated March 29, 2022

Going back to that which is you can be compared to a trip to the top of a mountain, where Alexius’ Duality Hacks is like an aerial cableway helping you to get to the top. However, the aerial cableway is not able to take you all the way, so at a certain point, you must leave it behind and continue on your own.

When high and low, past and future, giving and receiving, within and without is the same the ego is crucified. Read the coming theme The crucifixion of the ego

When high and low, past and future, giving and receiving or within and without is the same the concept of separation is undone. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The  final stretch to that which is One may seem cold and lonely. Any kind of luggage, whether it appears to be so-called spiritual, emotional or mental, must be left behind, so there is not something to support you, as that requires more than one.

What you do not leave by yourself will appear to be taken from you, until the ego, that in this context is the name for anything that seems separated, is crucified, so there does not appear to be something hiding there never was or will be nothing but the formlessness of oneness.

The way to leave everything behind is not to exclude specific thoughts and feelings but include them as they are. Exclusion of thoughts and feelings is the way to become something, whereas inclusion is to not become anything at all, because without anything excluded there is nothing to define you – and only as nothing can you bid welcome the formlessness of that which is you.

Besides, when everything is included you cannot feel alone. Neither do you need any help, as you have everything.

In other words, when Alexius’ Duality Hacks have served their purpose, you leave them behind so you can continue on your own. To hold onto them or anything else is like trying to put the aerial cableway in your rucksack when you continue on your own.

In the reality of that which is One, it is not possible to fabricate anything, as that requires more than one. In other words, consistency is a fabrication.

In the above metaphor, not all the qualities of an aerial cableway can literally be transferred to Alexius’ Duality Hacks. An aerial cableway needs to function consistently, and Alexius’ Duality Hacks has no such need. There is no consistent way to undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, as consistency is a fabrication based on excluding the formlessness of that which is One. Also, the whole way and the last stop of an aerial cableway is mapped out, but Alexius’ Duality Hacks has no specific way scheduled for you to follow. You just go with the flow.

Whenever you seem to see more than one or see anything at all, you are hallucinating, because it takes more than one to see something and you are that which is one.

Whenever you seem to experience more than one, you are hallucinating. It takes more than one to see something and that which is you is that which is One. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Alexius is not supposed to be followed. He is just a messenger, whose function is to render himself superfluous, so that you can go with the flow of the message until you see, it is your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, that hides the formless oneness of that which is you. Undoing this belief, you are on your own, as you always have been and always will be, because there is no more than that which is One.

Suppose you, after reading this hack and the previous hack #4 A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss feel connected with the indifference of the empty breath and have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. In that case, you may have arrived at the last stop of Alexius’ aerial cableway. Hence this could be your last article.

But if it feels as you still have some way to go in his aerial cableway of undoing the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are most welcome to go on reading Alexius’ Duality Hacks.

If you think this hack has made you wiser about the enlightenment of that which is One and how to get it, you have used the hack to enhance the belief in being someone definitive instead of undoing it. The animation is grabbed from the web.

EPILOGUE:
Alexius’ Duality Hacks present no facts or ideas that will add up to a higher meaning or purpose of your appearance as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Neither do they present any hope for such a person or the world to get better.

They point to that which is One – and as it takes more than one to hope for something, have a purpose, be meaningful or better, they are not about that, but undoing the belief in anything that requires more than one.

But since it also takes more than one to point to something, Alexius’ Duality Hacks are not the truth but as illusionary as anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Their use of this illusion, however, is not to make you appear more special, but to undo the belief that you are someone at all, so there is no belief to hide that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is One and, as formlessness is endless, therefore everything.

‘The Enlightenment of that which is One’ versus glimpses of it

Updated May 22, 2022

You know this pic is not how the physically world really look. It is rather a fantasy, thar is only possible due to physical life, that it therefore is a symbol of. Likewise the physical world is a symbol of life even though the physical world has nothing to do with life.

No matter how many beautiful glimpses you get of this mountain, it has nothing to do with reality. You will have to go there to see what it really looks like. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

We let ourselves be deceived by the outward-facing senses into believing that a world in which everything seems to be separated by time and space is real. Still, when these senses are turned inwards, there is no time and space, and therefore nothing to uphold the belief in separation, wherefore you do not appear as someone definitive.

Without the belief in separation, there is not something to hide that the abstractness of the inward-facing senses flows straight into an explosion coming out of a black hole or maybe into it. There is no way to know which way it is because this is the Enlightenment of that which is One, and it takes more than one to know anything. Also, an explosion may not be the best word to use because it is nothing but empty space carrying the nothingness of you into the formlessness of that which is One. End of story or what?

THE FORMLESSNESS OF ONENESS IS ENDLESS
This is not the end of the story because what is formless is endless – not in the sense that it lasts forever. On the contrary, it lasts no time but one perpetual present. However, this never-ending story cannot be written in a world defined by time and space because everything has an end in such a world. In terms of the ending, though, returning to the formlessness of that which is One is the termination of time and space – at least that is how it seems within linear time.

Researches from University of California Santa Barbara have proved that human cells and neutron stars have something in common. Both are namely built of layers – looking like a parking garage with many floors that are connected via steps.

But as there is nothing else than one perpetual present, the only thing that ends is the imagination of a world defined by time and space. Yet reading this article, you still believe in this imagination of a tangible world constructed of layer upon layer of thoughts, added so that it seems there are different levels in this capsule of time and space. Within this context, it also appears as if there are levels of turning the outward-facing senses inwards and that the more the inward-facing senses take over, the more you occur to have glimpses of Enlightenment.

It is a relief, when glimpses of enlightenment slowly but surely undoes the belief in being someone definitive – but very unsettling if you want to hang onto this belief.

These glimpses, however, are not the Enlightenment of that which is One because there are no levels in that which is One. Nevertheless, they slowly but surely undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, contrary to the Enlightenment of that which is One, whereas it is timeless – it takes no time to have this belief undone.

Here is another glimpse of the mountain from the first photo. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

However, the timelessness of that which is One cannot be brought into a world defined by time and space, so you will not be able to know what it is if you experience reappear in such a world after having bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One.

Yet you will have vague memories of it, and that is enough to be reminded constantly, that there is no more than that which is One, and consequently, all experiences – whether they seem to be so-called spiritual or mundane – are illusions, as it takes more than one to experience something.

Glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is One are experienced with the inward-facing senses, while being aware of the world of the outward-facing senses as well – although it seems quite distant.

But to bid the Enlightenment of that which is One welcome the outward-facing senses must be completely closed. In other words, there are no awareness of the world of the outward-facing senses and after entering the Enlightenment of that which is One there is neither no awareness of the inward-facing senses. Actually, there is no awareness at all, as it takes more than one to be aware of something.

To sum it up: When partially turning off the outward-facing senses, the inward-facing senses is only partly triggered, so you have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, which is an experience you have while still aware of appearing to be someone in the world of the outward-facing senses.

These glimpses can be compared to watching a movie trailer. But then again, it is not really so, because both the trailer and the film are something you experience. And the Enlightenment of that which is One, bid welcome by completely turning off the inward-facing senses, cannot be experienced.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE IS NOT PERSONAL, BUT GLIMPSES OF IT IS
The technique for tasting the nectar of life (see the previous article The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them) Alexius likes to do during the day – not so much for the taste of it, but for the sphere of indifference, that it, like the empty breath,* induces.

This is the look of the mountain in the two first photos when you are almost on top of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being indifferent, he is not distracted from going with the flow of the ongoing glimpses of the Enlightenment whenever he is not dealing with something that craves much attention in the world of the outward-facing senses. And if he is involved in something that demands much attention, the indifference towards it makes sure that the perception of it is founded on glimpses of Enlightenment. In other words, the world is experienced, but not as if he is there. It is more like sitting in a cinema, imagining being in the world on the screen.

Depending on the strength of the glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is One, it can be like momentarily dying from the world of the outward-facing senses. Therefore, if you appear to be occupied by something there, it can be very disturbing.

Glimpses of ethereal harmonies come and go as they please. In the case of Alexius, he enjoys waking up in the morning accompanied by the distant sound of ethereal harmonies. But when he at night closes his eyes to fall asleep, the ongoing spirals of light, which are brighter than the light from his lamps, keep coming, distracting him from falling asleep. 

During the day, there are glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, mainly in the form of short splashes of lucid light and hearing or feeling the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises.

Besides, there are vague memories of passing both the outer and inward-facing senses into the Enlightenment of that which is One, where all thoughts and feelings collected to justify the belief in a world defined by time and space are extracted so that there is no belief to hide that which has no beginning or end and therefore is everything, namely the formlessness of oneness.

This image of the same mountain, as in the other pictures in this article, again shows that you can have many different glimpses of it and that they are all coloured by the one having the glimpses. The Enlightenment of that which is One is not coloured by the one experiencing. It is impossible to do that since it would require more than one. In other words, there is nothing personal about the Enlightenment of that which is One. Yet, describing it via vague memories is like everything else, where more than one seems to be involved, coloured by the personality of the describer as well by the one interpreting the description. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

TRYING TO MAKE SOMETHING LAST ONLY APPEARS MEANINGFUL IN A WORLD WHERE EVERYTHING HAS AN END
Glimpses of Enlightenment, which many mistakes for the Enlightenment of that which is One, may leave you with the impression that it is possible to fuse heaven and earth by prolonging the glimpses via meditation or other kinds of techniques that seem to make you able to transform energies so heaven and earth merge.

The idea of heaven and hell is an idea based on duality, which is founded on contrasts like that. And as you cannot have one without the other, you cannot have only heaven in a world of duality. Neither in non-duality, because it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to have something.

This idea of a better world is founded on the belief that you are in control and thus can create a world as you see fit. But neither dictators, rich people, political or so-called spiritual-minded persons have ever succeeded in creating a world in the way they think it should be. But they assume it is something in themselves or others that need to be adjusted for it to happen. But no matter how much you correct, all you get are more frustrations because there is nothing to correct but the belief that you are definitive.

Whether you experience, you are free in the now, spiritual or whatnot, it echoes past conditioning, that you hold onto with the sole purpose of being someone special.

Instead of having this belief undone, most, who have had one or more glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One, start teaching how to make the world better – as if there is a world to make better. They put together a new philosophy based on their interpretation of one or more glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, mixed up with speculative ideas about spirituality and maybe ancient traditions of meditation and whatnot. They may, for example, encourage not being conditioned so that you can be free in the present moment. But the experience of that or anything else is based on the conditioned belief that you are someone defined by time and space.

You freely choose to give Facebook all your info in exchange for being able to construct a personality in its virtual world, as if this construction constitutes a real person.

Time and space are not a fact, but a belief system, that you blindly follow. You choose to be conditioned by it so that it seems to be a fact, that you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space instead of the formlessness of that which is One.

*) This article was written before the empty breath was introduced in Alexius’ Duality Hacks. Much to his surprise, he wrote many new articles only about the empty breath when he was proofreading hack #6.3 The inward-facing senses, the Enlightenment of that which is One and glimpses of it. Those articles became a new hack, namely, hack #4, A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss. If you want a bit of info about the empty breath, check out Notes on the empty breath.

CANCELLEX The inward-facing senses versus the outward ones

Updated May 21, 2022

Not trying to know what and where you are, thoughts lose their meaning

Updated May 27, 2022

To avoid being influenced by thoughts no special posture or surroundings are needed. All that is needed is to not be concerned about the outcome of anything at all, so that the apparent difference of attaining something or not makes no difference. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

To avoid being influenced by thoughts, no particular posture or surroundings are needed. All that is required is not to be concerned about the outcome of anything at all so that the apparent difference between attaining something or not makes no difference. The animation is grabbed from the Ello.

Suppose you do not believe thoughts to be real. In that case, it is easy to bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One because all that is needed to bid it welcome is not to be attentive to the meaning of thoughts, which is not to be mistaken for stopping them, as that requires someone definitive doing it – and to be definitive requires lots of thoughts judged to have a specific meaning.

Neither should it be understood as you become aware of the Enlightenment of that which is One instead of thoughts. It is impossible to be conscious of the Enlightenment of that which is One, as it takes more than one to be aware of something.

The Enlightenment of that which is One is bid welcome when you are not exclusive but inclusive.

In other words, there is nobody to know if you are Enlightened because to know something requires more than one. Also, what you appear to be in the world is not enlightened because a person cannot be enlightened.

Yet a person can step aside so that there is not something definable to hide the indefinable light of that which is One. To not be exclusive but inclusive is to step aside because inclusiveness neutralises contrasts. And without them, there is nothing that defines you as someone definitive and therefore not something not to bid welcome the formlessness of the Enlightenment of that which is One.

You are nobody in the Enlightenment of that which is One. Well, also in the world, but in the Enlightenment of that which is One there is not something to fill the nothingness of you with thoughts of importance, and so there is nobody to experience the enlightenment of that which is One

Yet returning from to a world where there seems to be more than one, there are vague memories of such a world being destroyed by a light stronger than 1000s of sun and leaving nothing but that which is One, as Arjuna describes it in the Bhagavad Gita.

Remembering there is no more than that which is One is not gonna change you into someone, who is wiser, better or more happy, but into nobody, as the conclusion is that a world where there seems to be more than one is not there.

The Enlightenment of that which is One is one perpetual present and therefore cannot be brought back into a world of linear time, so if returning to such a world, you are not in the Enlightenment of that which is One. Yet, as there are vague memories of it, you are to be compared to someone who is the Enlightenment of that which is One. The person that you appear to be in the world is not changed by this. Neither is it necessary because the appearance of you in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, and so is any change of it.

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

If a person only partially bids welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One, there will just be glimpses of it in the form of hearing, feeling or tasting an echo of that which is One. It can also be spaced out visions of travelling through different universes, seeing Jesus or the birth of a new universe in slow motion, which is very exciting, of course. Still, as it is something experienced, it has nothing to do with the Enlightenment of that which is One.

GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT TURN YOU INTO SOMEONE WHO APPEARS TO BE IN THE WORLD OF THE OUTWARD-FACING SENSES BUT NOT OF IT
You cannot go around as a person enlightened of that which is One, but you can go around having glimpses of it. If you do, you may seem distant from the world, as if you are not there. Yet you are more present than most because to be present, you cannot be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Living in the now has nothing to do with living. It is a numb state of mind for those trying to fit into a still photo imagined to be life, as they are afraid of going with the flow of it.

Chances are, however, that you quickly will look for more glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One and as you, therefore, are participating in the quest for being and having more, you will be fixated on you in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, you are not present at all because that which is you is the formlessness of oneness, and as formless is endless, there is no more than that which is One.

The way to undo your belief in thoughts, as if they are yours and therefore making you appear to be someone special, is to include all of them exactly as they appear to be.

The swing of the empty breath feels as the curved line in an yin yang sign swinging back and forth, up and down, from side to side and everything in between within a ball without definitive borders, that crosses your body below or above the waist and in the head or above it. This vibration synchronizes the low-frequency world of the outer senses with the high frequency of the inner senses, so no kind of speediness or confusion in the world of the outer senses seems upsetting. When experiences in the world of the outer senses is based on the world of the inner senses nothing is interpreted as upsetting. It is rather the other way around, you cannot help but laugh. The animation is grabbed from the web.

The swing of the empty breath feels as if the curved line in a yin-yang sign is swinging forth and back, up and down, from side to side, and everywhere in between within a ball that has no definitive centre or border and that crosses your lower and upper body. This swing synchronises the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses with the high frequency of the inward-facing senses, so no kind of speediness or confusion in the world of the outward-facing senses seems upsetting. In other words, when the experiences in the world of the outward-facing senses are based on the world of the inward-facing senses, it does not matter if something appears to be upsetting or not. You are indifferent to appearances – including your own – and cannot help but smile. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

BEING A MEDIUM FOR THE EMPTY BREATH, YOU ARE GUIDED BY GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT
The main reason for feeling stressed as an appearance in a world where there seems to be more than one is that it takes so much energy to make thoughts and feelings appear as if they come from someone specific.

Not being someone specific feels as if you are nothing, which looks pretty discomforting until you realise that being empty, you are a vessel, the empty breath*, that takes you into the high-frequency world of the inward-facing senses, where glimpses of Enlightenment are the base for experiencing the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses. More about how to have stress igniting a take-off into the empty breath in hack #5.1

The excitements in the world of the outward-facing senses requires you to appear, as if you are someone definitive, because you cannot have a specific experience without being someone definitive.

Being guided by the empty breath is like being on autopilot. It is so relaxing, and it feels as if nothing is wrong no matter what you appear to be and have unless you do not still insist on being entertained by all the apparent exciting possibilities in the world of the outward-facing senses, as they only bring pleasure if you work hard to appear as someone specific with its own thoughts and feelings.

This is very stressful compared to being a medium for the empty breath. It automatically syncs the stress from the world of outward-facing senses with the tranquillity of the inward-facing senses so that you become indifferent to the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one.

You are lucky, when everything seems to fall apart, because this may trigger so much sadness, that you stop believing the construction of thoughts you have based your identity upon is that which is you.

This synchronisation occurs when the high frequencies coming from the inward-facing senses are not fenced off by the belief that thoughts belong to someone definitive, and no effort is made to be active in the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses.

This does not mean that you cannot move around in the world of the outward-facing senses. On the contrary, you are inactive in it and ready to be a medium for the empty breath when you do not care about what and where you are, while you, for example, appear to be walking down a street or sitting in a park. In other words, no need to exclude anything by eating exceptional food or sitting in particular postures in unique surroundings to become pure.

The empty breath is the foundation for glimpses of Enlightenment, that is bound to merge into the Enlightenment of that which is One, provided you do not keep swimming in the bliss induced by the glimpses of Enlightenment, as to be blissful requires more than one.

Just like the empty breath is a foundation for the glimpses of Enlightenment so is ‘pretending to be someone definitive’ or ‘to se symbols of life in the world’ or ‘not being exclusive but inclusive’ so that apparent differences is not perceived to make a difference.* It does not matter which foundation you choose or if you alternate between them.

A perfect moment with glimpses of enlightenment is something you are aware of. If you stop being aware of it, you cannot see any glimpse. There is nothing and that is where the enlightenment of that which is one sets in. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Glimpses of Enlightenment are something you are aware of. If you stop being aware of them or anything else, there is nothing to block out the Enlightenment of that which is One. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

WHERE DO GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT COME FROM
Physically speaking, the glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One seems to originate from a non-defined space behind the frequencies of thoughts behind the pineal gland. It is probably also from there that you perceive the world when you are not exclusive but inclusive, so its apparent differences do not make a difference, and it feels like every moment is the perfect moment*.

The same applies to pretending to be a person or to perceive everything in the world as symbols of that which is One*. The empty breath – sounding like sohang – is presumably picked up from there as well, physically speaking.

The pineal gland might work as a receiver for signals picked up by the eighth chakra, which has a magenta colour and is located above the head. Yet maybe the pineal gland or the eighth chakra has anything to do with the experiences of glimpses of Enlightenment. You cannot know because when in the experience, you do not care – and afterwards, you do not know where to look.

It might be best to downplay the visual glimpses of Enlightenment in daily life, as you will have a hard time navigating the world of the outward-facing senses while having visions of light. In most cases, though, you can safely go with the glimpses of the other aspects of Enlightenment, namely hearing, feeling or tasting it.

This is not a new religion or philosophy, that you must learn and strictly adhere to. On the contrary. It is about unlearning everything and going with the flow.

What is coffee. The answer will depend on the preferences of the one answering it and as we all have different preferences the same cup of coffee can be described in many different ways. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

What is coffee? The answer depends on the preferences of the one answering it and the interpretation of the answer by the one getting it, so the same cup of coffee may turn out to be many different things. In other words, you will not get to know what coffee is from reading about it but from drinking it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

NOT KNOWING WHAT AND WHERE YOU ARE, THERE IS NO MORE TO UNLEARN
The Enlightenment of that which is One and the glimpses of it are in Alexius’ Duality Hacks described in a certain way. Still, elsewhere the same is maybe described in another way – just like two persons may describe the same cup of coffee in different ways.

So do not wait for the Enlightenment of that which is One or the glimpses of it to be revealed precisely as described in Alexius’ Duality Hacks. In other words, you do not have to fit into the terminology of Alexius’ Duality Hacks. Also: trying to extract a specific way to the Enlightenment of that which is One, or the glimpses of it from Alexius’ Duality Hacks, will not help you. It is better to forget all words about it and thrust the light, sound, feeling, or taste of it to do their thing when you partly or wholly are willing not to be someone definitive.

That being said, there are practical instructions on how to experience glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One in the article The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them, which may help to undo the belief in being someone definitive and therefore be able to bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One.

When there is nobody there, there is nobody to judge a dog to be different from a human. No appearance appears to do behave in a personal way, because nobody is observing them.

Nothing to fear when not knowing what and where you are. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THERE IS NOTHING TO FEAR WHEN THERE IS NOBODY THERE
When none of your experiences is excluded but included, you cannot know what and where you are because with nothing excluded, there are no contrasts to define you as someone specific.

Inclusion seems dangerous when you want to survive as someone definitive, but if you do not mind being NObody, there is no need to fear what seems to be the disintegration of you because there is no end to not being specific.


*) The other foundations for having glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One apart from the empty breath can be read about in duality hack #1-3 plus #7. Hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation has a psychological perspective. In hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life, the perspective is more metaphysical. And in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is freedom, indifference is the subject. Hack #7 Alone together we go home. is about togetherness combined with aloneness.

The after-effect of ‘a state of not-knowing’

Updated May 23, 2022

The after-effect of a state of not-knowing is a certainty that the thoughts needed for being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one automatically are produced by the brain. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE AFTER-EFFECT OF A STATE OF NOT-KNOWING:
You need to return from a state of not-knowing to the conscious experience of being somebody after 20 minutes, 45 at most. If not, there is nobody to repeatedly confirm that the experiences fabricated by the brain from nothing into something are real. Therefore, since there is not something to disguise that the makings of the brain are fake, they fall apart.

So if you do not want the experience of being someone to be terminated, you return from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone relatively quickly. Since the slate has been wiped clean in a state of not-knowing, you automatically come back as the basic self. This is a bit like a chicken whose reflexes go on even though its head has been cut off. But in your case, it is not the head that is cut off but the silly idea that you are independent. Thus you do not have to figure out where to go. The brain will let you know.

Returning from a state of not-knowing as the basic self, the relationships you used to perceive as special most likely fall apart because you do not look for something special anymore (read more about that here).

As long as the after-effect of a state of not-knowing lasts, which can be from a few seconds to several years, you rely on the brain to produce experiences of being someone in a tangible world – as you depend on it to make the experiences of you as someone in a dream you have.

Going along with the experiences as they are, and not as you think they should be, feels like you are sleepwalking. You just cannot speed up to get something definitive. That is unless you break the magic by repeating specific thoughts and feelings, which is very stressful. But fortunately, the stress can be used for a new take-off into the empty breath and the bliss of nothing, from where you again return renewed to a conscious experience of being someone.

You will probably go back and forth between this consciousness and a state of not-knowing many times before you forget to return and instead bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is One.

THE AFTER-EFFECT OF THE BLISS OF NOTHING
When you return from a state of not-knowing to the belief in being someone definitive and have forgotten the bliss of not believing that, the empty breath remembers it for you – also if you only remember the empty breath once in a while. And just like it syncs being nobody with being somebody in a state of not-knowing, so you can move around in nothing as if it is something, it also does that in the after-effect of it. The ratio is different, though.

In a state of not-knowing, there is so little consciousness of being somebody that there is nobody to perceive the apparently different experiences to make a difference. This is in the bliss of nothing. In the after-effect, the empty breath syncs the bliss of nothing with the conscious experience of something, so emptiness is forgotten when you need to be aware of something like driving a car. In other words, in a state of not-knowing, you are, first of all, nobody, and in the after-effect, you are mostly somebody.

When someone is hurt in a movie you watch, you may also feel hurt. That is why the movie seems real. But since the film is not perceived as real, it seems entertaining to be hurt. This is how it is to be connected with the empty breath. Though the world appears to be real, you perceive it as unreal. Hence its apparent ups and downs are equally enjoyable.

But since your slate is wiped clean in a state of not-knowing, there are no misperceptions of being special in the after-effect of it. Thus you are the basic. It perceives every experience as it is what it is. Hence, no matter in which ratio nothing and something is synced by the empty breath, each experience makes it equally entertaining to appear as if you are someone definitive. This after-effect lasts from a few seconds to several years if you do not hold onto specific thoughts and feelings. An excellent way to prevent this is to apply hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

This is often done with new-age concepts of being in balance, the now and whatnot. That is until you are so frustrated from trying to make these concepts work, and you do not attempt to fix the disappointment but have the unedited energy ignites a take-off into the empty breath, so you again have your slate wiped clean in a state of not-knowing and return to the consciousness of being someone as the basic self. Read more about the basic and special self in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

 

 

The basic self is not that far from not remembering to be somebody. Thus it easily connects with the empty breath that brings it into a state of not-knowing,* where the apparent different experience of you and others is not perceived to make a difference. Since this means you cannot be defined as separated from others, there is nobody to confirm the brain’s rendering of a world where everything appears to be separated by time and space.

If this goes on for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, the brain falls into a coma because if there is not more than one having a conversation inside or outside, it is out of work. It is not very often, though, that someone falls into a state of not-knowing,* least of all that they remain there for more than 20 minutes. Everybody wants to be somebody, so they make sure to have an ongoing conversation with somebody perceived to be different from themselves. See also No change is needed to come back to that which is One.

Should they come close to forgetting this, for example by reading Alexius Enlightened Non-Teachings, the brain threatens them with total annihilation. This makes them come to heel and do their best to maintain a conversation with someone experienced to be different from themselves, so, just like in a dream, it seems that there is more than you, although there is nobody at all.

 

Alexius’ Duality Hacks do not detach you from feelings. They may seem more distant when you are in a state of not-knowing, but when you return to the consciousness of being someone definitive, they are very close. But since they are no longer perceived as something but nothing, you enjoy the intimacy of nothing in whatever shape it seems to take. Therefore, since you are indifferent to their supposed difference, the belief in separation vanishes.

Should you forget that feelings are not something but nothing and focus on their apparent tangibility, the worries that this seems to cause can be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. This brings you back into a state of not-knowing, where there is nobody to judge the apparent differences in the world of duality to make a difference, so you return to the consciousness of being someone definitive in such a world based on the sense that nothing there makes a difference. Hence everything seems equally entertaining.

You can learn how to ignite a take-off into the empty breath and thus be in the bliss of nothing in hack #5.1 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

APPENDIX:
Be aware that there is absolutely no will to perceive anything in particular in a state of not-knowing. And the transition from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone is not noticed because there was not somebody to be aware of being nobody in a state of not-knowing. Nor do you not know that the bliss of nothing has wiped the slate clean, so new perceptions automatically are generated in sync with the brain’s script. See hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

But suppose the happiness this entails feels too basic compared with the vague memories of bliss that eventually pop up from nowhere. In that case, you may try to twist the automatically generated perceptions of the brain into something that seems to extend the memories of bliss. Hence, you appear to have something more exciting to tell the world than being a servant of the brain. And since the world wants to be fooled, they do not see that this is a show to hide you feel inferior.

To make long short, if not altering the brain’s game automatically generated perception of your reactions to the experiences it fabricate, it injects you with shots of happiness as a reward for playing its game of duality. And if not messing with the memories of bliss, you know that duality is not real, so playing the brain’s game, there is nothing to lose.

Should you forget that and, therefore, start perceiving duality as real, the frustration this causes can be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath, so you again have the slate wiped clean and return to the consciousness of being someone with the perception in sync with the brains fantasy of you as someone in a world of duality.

This does not necessarily mean the slate remains clean. Your conditioned way of reacting may be so deeply rooted that you return to a familiar way of responding to something. But, no worries, a quick visit to a state of not-knowing, and you start over with a clean slate in the brain’s fantasy of duality.

Sooner or later, you feel so entertained by this fantasy that you forget to remember being someone. Thus there does not appear to be anybody hiding non-duality.

Notes on ‘the empty breath’ [draft]

Updated May 22, 2022

It may not always be the experience that the empty breath is your best friend because it is of no help regarding what and where you like to be. Instead, it helps you see everything through its eyes of indifference, so you feel good no matter what and where you appear to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Connecting with the empty breath, you do not aim to go higher but to fall into the bliss of nothing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When connected with the empty breath, what you seem to receive from the world is always the same because you receive what you give and give what you have, namely the indifference of the empty breath.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Feeling the connectedness with the empty breath, you smile regardless you win or not because, in the flow of the empty breath, you are indifferent to becoming and getting more.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To be loved is a need that comes from the perception that differences make a difference. But since the empty breath is indifferent to differences, being loved does not make a difference when connected with it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The function of the empty breath is not to improve the apparent condition of what and where you appear to be. That would be a replacement of one illusion with another. Instead, its function is to facilitate the undoing of the belief that there is more than that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Being connected with the empty breath, you are indifferent to the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one – just like you are indifferent to the experienced differences in the world of a movie or a computer game because you know they are make-believe.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If something seems to bother you, use the frustration to ignite a take-off into the empty breath so you can see what you judge as something bad is nothing. See Take-offs into the empty breath.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The empty breath does not know how to heal hay fever or anything else caused by the belief in being someone definitive. But it knows how to undo this belief. And since you get more laid-back in that process, new ways of healing your hay fever may pop up. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The empty breath is a life jacket you got from that which is one when you left it to be and have more than one. Of course, this is a metaphor because you have never left oneness since it is formless, thus endless. Yet, it seems possible to imagine not being there but in a world where there seems to be more than one.

This life jacket, the empty breath, loves you unconditionally. Thus it is not bothered by what and where you believe to be. Actually, it does not even know this fantasy. It can only be shared by those who want to be somebody definitive. And the empty breath has no way of being something because it is nothing, thus seeing nothing.

Thus being connected with the empty breath, every experience of something is perceived as nothing. Of course, this does not mean that you do not do anything about a broken leg, for example. But since it is seen as nothing, you do not add worries to your broken leg. Therefore, since changing or transforming something or somebody does not seem appealing, you have a laid-back life with the empty breath.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Taking deep breaths or, in any other way manipulating the breath is not beneficial when connecting with the empty breath because doing so enhances the belief in being someone in charge. The same applies to being centred, balanced, focused or something else.

It is the willingness not to hold back thoughts that connects you with the empty breath. The uncontrolled energy of thoughts ignites a take-off into the empty breath, whether you walk, sit, talk or whatnot. See Take-offs into the empty breath.

Unconfined thoughts or feelings repeatedly shoot off several at a time to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. But you stop them from doing that by defining them, so you can remain in the illusion of being someone definitive.

The more you limit yourself to being someone definitive, the more you feel like you will collapse. To prevent that, you improve your definition until you feel so constrained that you burst into anger or stop giving a shit about holding yourself together. Thus the uncontrolled energy of the suppressed thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off into the empty breath. However, it does not help you escape your cage but the belief that you are in it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Connecting with the empty breath has nothing to do with what you eat or think. Nor has it anything to do with meditation except being a medium for nothing, which you are when there is a willingness to not look for something specific. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

What you see on the screen is on a hard disk with nothing but zeros and ones disguised as something. Yet, it is not before the combination of zeros and ones is processed by an app into what appears to be on the screen that the nothingness of the hard disk is experienced as a tangible world that you can change.

The empty breath, which in this context is unprocessed zeros and ones, does not know that you assign special meaning to the nothingness on the screen, which, in this context, is the world, so that you appear to be someone experiencing something instead of emptiness.

All that the empty breath knows is that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is One. Thus all that it wants is to breathe nothing but emptiness into what you believe to be and see so that there does not seem to be something hiding there never was or will be more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If the present stream of thoughts or feelings is not manipulated or suppressed, its untamed energy ignites a take-off into the empty breath. You can make up stories of love or anything else in its presence without feeling deceitful to the empty breath because it sees the world where you believe to be as a blank computer screen. So although the stories you fabricate seem to disclose something on it, the screen remains empty.

In other words, when you are with the empty breath, it does not matter how you perceive the experiences produced by the brain. You do not need the happiness from being in sync with the brain. You are in the bliss of nothing until you define it as something.

No worries, having been with the empty breath for just a split second, the slate is wiped clean. Thus you return to interacting with a world that appears to be outside of you with the perception, it is what it is.’ This perception makes you feel on the beat regardless of how you experience something.

That is until you judge specific experiences as better by not perceiving your reaction to them as ‘it is what it is’ but ‘I know what it is.’ Read more about those perceptions in hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy. However, this does not make you feel on the beat because hardly anything goes your way. Fortunately, if not handling this frustration, its untamed energy ignites a take-off into the empty breath.

In this way, you can go back and forth between the conscious experience of something (read more about that here) and the bliss of nothing (read more about that here) until you forget to disconnect from the empty breath and its state of not-knowing, and the Enlightenment of that which is One erases everything that requires more than one. Read more about that in hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since that which is One cannot be experienced, it is ignored by those who believe that something unexplainable is unreal. At best, it is imagined as a state of consciousness in which the self is transcended into a higher one. Oneness, however, has nothing to do with being in a state nor about being conscious of something because that requires more than one. So does being someone. In other words, the experience of being someone – or rather the belief that this experience is real – is what seems to hide there is no more than that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The empty breath is not about getting better health, more money, success, love or anything else, but seeing that what you appear to be and have is nothing. Hence there does not appear to be something hiding the formlessness of oneness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As you probably have read many times in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, since it requires more than one to experience something and oneness is formless, thus endless, every experience is fictional. Obviously, this also includes the experience of the empty breath. It is as unreal as any other experience.

Yet this experience, which is deeply rooted in an archetypical image of a never-ending rhythmic flow, slowly but surely undoes the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One. Furthermore, it makes it seems unproblematic to have this belief. Not in the sense that you are not troubled by anything but indifferent to it.

If this feels confusing, do not try to get a grip on it. Instead, go with the flow of chaos until you cannot make ends meet into being someone definitive but feel as if you are about to explode, which in a sense also is what happens when the build-up tensions ignite a take-off into the empty breath. Since it results in a state of not-knowing, you are not bound up with the belief in being someone definitive until you leave this state and return to that belief.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A state of not-knowing, which is the result of the empty breath, is also the outcome of the other duality hacks. If it always is the same state cannot be known because nobody is conscious of it.

Where to find the bliss of ‘the empty breath’ [draft]

Updated May 22, 2022

The bliss of the empty breath may be felt like an intangible yin-yang sign

When you do not believe to be made of substantial elements, empty space takes over. This can, of course, not be illustrated, so this yin-yang illustration simulates the swing of the empty breath. Read more about that here. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PREFACE:
Since the bliss of nothing that sets in when connected with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing, it is impossible to connect with it when in the consciousness of being someone definitive. Thus the connection must be established before the brain, based on signals it claims to receive from our sensory system, delivers a convincing experience of being somebody definitive in a world defined by time and space.

Science states, the world we seem to feel and see consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and as immaterial as a dream, is what we perceive to be elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space.

Therefore, appearing to be someone definitive is make-believe, regardless what and where you appear to be. Read more about empty space in the articles The empty breath is empty space and so is what you believe to be and Free to float in the void of the empty breath.

On account of this taking one second for the brain to accomplish, the connection with the empty breath is established by going back one second in linear time from the present experience (see how in the articles Take-offs into the empty breath, and How to ignite a take-off into the empty breath ). Back then, nothing had not been processed into something by the brain. Therefore, since there is nothing to define you, there is no difference between your nothingness and the empty breath.

This has nothing to do with getting closer to your pure essence. You have no soul. You are nothing. Being with the empty breath, this becomes obvious. Hence you can go back as nobody in the world of something and have fun pretending to be somebody. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

How to connect with the bliss of the empty breath

You connect with the empty breath by not connecting with the consciousness of you as someone definitive experiencing the tangible world that the brain spends a second fabricating from the frequencies it imagines to receive from empty space. You can compare this to not turning on a computer game because you rather want to experience the physical world – except that connecting with the empty breath is not a conscious experience but a state of not-knowing. And you have just a second to connect with the empty breath. Fortunately, it is plenty of time, provided you are willing not to attest to a world of something but be in the bliss of nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath sees no separation, so it has no need to connect with you, no matter what and where you believe to be. But you believe in separation, so you need to connect with it if you want to be indifferent to the belief in being disconnected. See also, You exist nowhere but in dreams, and they are not real.

Forget about being conscious of the empty breath, as what you are conscious about is never the present but the past.

When you connect with the empty breath by going back one second from your present experience to the nothingness from where it was processed into something by the brain, the unprocessed moment is extended into a state of not-knowing. In this state, you do not pick up on the brain’s deceptive fabrication of you as someone living in a capsule of time and space. Thus you are in the bliss of nothing.

However, this state cannot last more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, at a time if you want to return to a conscious experience of being someone definitive. When the experiences of something produced by the brain from signals perceived to come from empty space no longer are confirmed as real by the self, created from the same nothingness, the brain feels abandoned. Thus it falls into a coma.

But if you do not want to appear as a separated being anymore, you do not mind the brain falling apart, so it no longer can map out empty space as if you are someone definitive in a tangible world. Hence there is not something that appears to hide, there never was or will be anything but oneness since it is formless, thus endless.

So regardless you want to remain as someone definitive or not, a state of not-knowing induced by the empty breath is bound to end pretty soon so that the consciousness of being someone definitive can be resumed or tcompletely erased.

No need to worry about having your consciousness totally erased by accidentally staying too long in a state of not-knowing. First of all, hardly anybody comes to the point where the brain starts falling apart, and should you reach that point but long to be someone, fear of survival will set in. This is enough to reboot the brain and bring you back to the experience of being someone definitive, where they forget a state of not-knowing until blissful memories emerge.

the bliss of the empty breath that undoes the belief in being someone definitive

Is it the bliss of the empty breath that undoes the belief in being someone definitive, or is it the undoing that connects you with the bliss of the empty breath? But since this question arises from the belief in being someone definitive, an illusion fabricated by the brain, an answer would make the fantasy real. The same applies to asking who has invented this illusion or who chose to undo the belief in being someone. If this could be answered, the illusion would be real. In other words, there is no answer to anything because everything experienced is constructed from nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

How not to be deceived by the brain’s experiences of something and instead drift in the bliss of nothing cannot be answered. The question is founded on the belief that you are someone definitive, and the bliss of nothing comes from the indifference to that belief.

Neither can it be known if it is the empty breath or being indifferent to the belief in being someone that comes first concerning the sheer bliss of nothing. The only reason somebody wants to know this – or anything else – is that they believe to be defined by what they know and want to remain like that rather than nobody in the bliss of not-knowing.

Thus the above about where to find the transparent bliss of nothing, entailed by the empty breath, is not an attempt to answer the question but to rule it out. The same applies to the below, which further explores the above.

IN THE BLISS OF NOTHING
Even though it only takes the brain a millisecond to register the signals, it imagines receiving from the sensory system this very moment, what you consciously experience right now happened in the past because the brain has used one second more to process those signals into a conscious experience of something it expects you to perceive as real because if not, you are exposed as nothing.

In other words, since your conscious experience of now is a delayed interpretation of nothing that it has taken the brain one second to process, what you believe to read now you read in the past – or more to the point, you never read it because one second ago there did not appear to be something covering up nothing.

When not organising thoughts and feelings into specific categories, they do not seem to represent something in a substantial world. Hence there is nothing to block out the empty breath, that does not know of such a world or that you believe to be someone there. All it knows is the nothingness from which this fantasy has been made, because it is nothing.

As this means you are never in the present but in the past, and as it is nothing, there is nobody there to perceive the apparently different experiences of something to make a difference. Therefore, since they do not establish a world where there seems to be more than one as real, it is exposed as nothing. Consequently, when going back one second in linear time from your present experience, there is not something that seems to separate you from the empty breath.

See how to connect with the empty breath in the articles Take-offs into the empty breath and How to ignite a take-off into the empty breath).

what you believe to be is the brain

The brain uses five per cent of its capacity to construct a self that, through singled out memories, feelings and imaginations, makes up an exciting story about itself, stored all over the brain as if it is you. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Just five per cent of the brain is used to shape the conscious experience of ourselves as somebody defined by time and space. However, much more space is needed to establish this experience as real. Hence a big part of the brain is continuously occupied with thoughts about ourselves as if they are caused by a tangible world around us, thus seeming to confirm we are somebody in it. See also The empty breath and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

It seems that if the brain cannot deceive us into seeing something where there is nothing, it falls into a coma after 20 minutes, 45 at the most. And since all the memories we have selected to back up what we believe in being are stored in the brain, this belief is terminated.

Therefore, if you want to return to the belief in being someone, you cannot stay too long at a time in a state of not-knowing relatively. However, this is not a problem because most leave a state of not-knowing as soon as they enter it. Their urge to be someone definitive is so deep-rooted that it paves the way for the brain to break through a state of not-knowing with images of you as someone becoming and having more and more. Compared to being such an amazing person, being nobody in the transparent bliss of nothing seems uninteresting.

In the bliss of the empty breath you are indifferent to being and having more

The urge to be and have more is the cause of all suffering because more want more, so you will never be or have enough. But this is not a problem when connected with the empty breath, as it is indifferent to differences. Hence you always have enough. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Therefore, a state of not-knowing is left by imagining you are and can do amazing things. However, it is hard work to live up to the expectations of being special, and it seldom results in the excitement you imagined. So one day, you prefer to use your frustration as a take-off into the empty breath (see how in the articles Take-offs into the empty breath and How to ignite a take-off into the empty breath ), and instead float in the bliss of nothing, that arises from the indifference to the desire of being and having something special.

The flow of the empty breath goes in all directions – up and down, back and forth, from right to left, or anywhere in between – within an irregular circle with no fixed centre or size (see the illustrations in What does the empty breath feel like?). Once having been with the empty breath, it automatically syncs the inward and outward-facing senses, regardless you have left it. Thus the sense of tranquillity in the inward-facing ones helps you get through the sense of turbulence in the outward-facing ones (see The empty breath syncs the inward and outward-facing senses).

This does not mean it will seem easier to get a new spouse, more money and whatnot in the world of the outward-facing senses, but it becomes apparent that it makes no difference what you seem to be and have. That which is you is not a limited creature stuck in a capsule of time and space but the formlessness of oneness.

The brain automatically fills in the missing pieces in this image to make you see two triangles. Thus you probably disagree that the grey triangle is an illusion and the one partly framed by a black stroke is disconnected. But if you cover the three incomplete black circles, the grey triangle disappears, and the other one appears fragmented.

Since the brain not only decides what we see but also what we hear, feel, smell and taste, we are not free, but something fabricated and controlled by the brain into believing that we are somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one, and not the formlessness of oneness.

Consequently, there is nothing to heal but the sick belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One. This automatically happens when connecting with the empty breath, which takes us back one second in linear time to the nothingness from where the brain has rendered our present experience of something.

This does not mean that the empty breath is the formlessness of oneness because it takes more than one to be something. But, metaphorically speaking, it is the door to that which is One.

now is an illusion fabricated by the brain

When the brain, now and then, screens out what you see so you do not get seasick from the movement of your eyes, it fills the gaps based on memories. But as they most often have been heavily edited, the story fabricated by the brain to fill in the gaps may clash with the story of the present that others have. The discrepancy, therefore, makes you feel that something is wrong with you or the world. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

IN THE WORLD OF SOMETHING
You are probably not aware that now and then, throughout the day, you are blind. This is because the brain screens out what you see to prevent you from getting seasick when the eyes move. You do not notice that you are blind for two hours a day because the brain hides this by filling the gaps with visual impressions of what it imagines to be there.

In the first episodes of a new TV show, there are normally hints pointing to the forthcoming episodes, and since the brain thrives from envisaging what is going to happen next, it is captured into anticipating the future of the characters and thus enchanted by its own predictions into a state of amusement.

The writers of Game of Thrones try to hook you up and fence of the bliss of the empty breath

The writers of ´Game of Thrones´ want us to bond emotionally with the characters, so that we feel attracted to them as if they are real and not just a fantasy. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

But if the writers of the show do not comply with their own hints when inventing the next episodes, the future of the characters does not turn out as predicted by the brain. Thus the fate of the characters becomes a mystery, that the brain hopes to unravel in the following episodes, wherefore it compels you to stick with the show until the very end. In other words, it is not you but the brain that is in charge.

The predictions fabricated by the brain to fill the gaps of blindness are basically a remix of memories that have been adjusted every time they were recalled to boost the story of you as someone in a tangible world. Therefore, since it does not match how others see the same events, you conclude that something is wrong in your story or in others. Hence you start trying to correct what is judged to be incorrect.

The more you appear successful in this, the more it seems that the story can be shaped to come out with a better version of you. Yet, no matter how the story is corrected, it remains a fantasy, and so does the idea that you are the author.

Just like within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, you are not the author of a dream. Neither are you in it nor is the dream in you. It is a deception made to look as if nothing is something.

Fortunately, the brain cannot make the empty breath look like something, so when we are in its bliss of nothing, we are not deceived by the experiences produced by the brain to perceive them as something.

In the bliss of the empty breath the belief in duality is undone

In a state of not-knowing, the brain cannot establish the everyday consciousness of you as someone definitive. However, this does not mean that your awareness as someone definitive is replaced by something better, higher or purer but by no consciousness. Thus, nobody is aware of the bliss of not believing to be someone. That is why it is like air walking in the air. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

WHEN DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES ARE NOT PERCEIVED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
In a state of not-knowing, you are blind in a sense that there is no conscious experience of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Thankfully this is resolved by the empty breath and not the brain. The latter continues to process what it claims to receive from the sensory system as if it is something instead of nothing. Still, since the empty breath is indifferent to the apparently different experiences of something, there is no awareness in the connectedness with the empty breath of how the brain categorises them in contrasts of good or bad, right or wrong, love or hate, within and without and so on.

So, although a world where there seems to be more than one looks the same when in a state of not-knowing, its apparent differences are not perceived to make a difference. Therefore, since there is no knowledge of being someone definitive, there is nobody to be happy, sad or anything else. This does not mean that there are no thoughts and feelings but that nobody relates them to them as if they make a difference.

The brain deceives you to fence off the bliss of the empty breath

The problems you perceive to have, do not come from the world where you appear to be but from the belief that you are there. Hence the solution to all problems is the same, namely the undoing of that belief. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If the body, where you appear to reside, again and again, drops something, you could be defined as clumsy. If you believe this and feel guilty about it, you might want to change it.

But since every effort to improve yourself is based on the belief that there is something wrong with you, your efforts are not changing this belief but enhancing it. You secretly accept this because even though you do not like to be defined as clumsy, it is preferable to not being defined because that means you are nobody.

Yet being nobody, there is not somebody to be clumsy or something else. There is just the bliss of nothing.

In short, the connectedness with the empty breath is simply a way to overlook the apparently different experiences fabricated by the brain so that they are not judged to make a difference. Hence a world where there seems to be more than one does not appear to establish the belief in separation.

Going with the flow of the empty breath is just as easy as going with the flow of sex. The latter though does not result in the undoing of the belief in being someone definitive, unless the orgasm is used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Following the flow of the empty breath is no different from following the flow of the genitals, in the sense that no thinking is needed. The result of being horny, though, is the enhancement of the belief in being someone definitive.

This is not to say that sex should be avoided (see Holding back to not ejaculate is just another physical manifestation – but without the physical thrill of it), because the exclusion of sex or anything else adds to the definition of you as someone definitive. Actually, an orgasm can be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath, if you do not hold back, but are nothing but orgasmic.

Although the connectedness with the indifference of the empty breath eventually undoes the belief in separation, it also enhances it because it requires more than one to connect with something.

Since nothing appears to make a difference in a state of not-knowing, there is no special place to go or someone special to love. This may feel like being stuck inside an unbreakable armour of pain instead of floating in the bliss of nothing.

However, if not trying to escape this feeling of claustrophobia but being that and nothing else, there is nothing to define you as something. Thus you are in the bliss of nothing.

The same applies to choosing something. Therefore, to not enhance but have the belief in separation undone, you do not select the empty breath or anything else. And since you are nothing without the choice of something, you are in the flow of the empty breath.

Reading this article about the empty breath can be beneficial if you want to unlearn what you have learned about being someone so you can connect with the empty breath and float in its bliss of not believing to be anybody. But if you are tired of words and want to do that now, go to Take-offs into the empty breath.

NOTHING TWISTED INTO SOMETHING
It takes more than one to appear as someone, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless, thus endless. Thus appearing as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy made from nothing, experienced by nothing.

This is not to say that oneness is nothing. It is that which is One, and it takes more than one to be anything. For the same reason, it is impossible to fantasise about something in oneness. Nevertheless, it seems possible to imagine there is something outside of it. But since oneness is endless, there is nothing outside of it. So even though the brain twists it into something, it is non-existing.

This is probably why science concludes that the world we seem to feel and see consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and as immaterial as a dream, is what we perceive to be elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space.

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

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

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

THE BLISS OF NOTHING
Though science seems to know that the experience of something is made from nothing, thus is make-believe, they explore the experiences of something as they are real. However, in Alexius’ Duality Hacks, we expose something as nothing, so there does not seem to be something hiding there never was or will be anything but the formlessness of oneness.

The experiences the brain fabricates of someone substantial in a tangible world only seem real when perceived as something. If not, they are exposed as nothing. To see that, you go back in time to the nothingness the brain twists into your everyday experience of something.

Since the empty breath resides there, and it has taken the brain one second to fabricate your current experience of something, it only takes one second to connect with the empty breath and be in a state of not-knowing, thus the bliss of nothing. This happens via the inward-facing senses. But if the brain is not kept active in a feedback loop, with thoughts that seem to confirm the world of the outward-facing senses as something, it falls into a coma. Thus you cannot be in the bliss of nothing for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, at a time if you want to return to a world of something. Read more about that here.

Connecting with the empty breath is not about being deeper, purer or balanced. Being something is part of the experience of being someone, and the empty breath is not part of that but the nothingness that this experience is fabricated from.

In the flow of not believing to be someone

Should you wonder, who chooses to believe in being someone in the world of the outward-fencing senses, or who has programmed the brain to produce this world so that it seems tangible, or who is connecting with the empty breath, or who is wondering about this, the answer is nobody.

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

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

However, since it takes more than one to experience something and as there is no more than that which is One, any experience is an illusion, regardless it seems to come from the outward or inward-facing senses.

Consequently, the above distinction between inward and outward-facing senses and a brain receiving something real from the sensory system is part of the non-existing brain’s plot to deceive you into believing you are experiencing something where there is nothing.

It takes nobody to know where the inner senses are


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

Therefore, it is only in the context of the belief in more than one that there is someone to experience an abstract world, lightly processed by the brain from the frequencies of nothingness, and a substantial heavily processed by the brain from the same frequencies.

The abstract experiences of the inward-facing senses open up when you do not entirely believe to be someone definitive in the world of the outward-facing senses. Hence there is little left of this belief when you are in the world of the inward-facing senses. Otherwise, there would be nobody to experience the world of the inward-facing senses. In other words, when you appear to be nobody in the world of the inward-facing senses, you have not totally left the belief in being somebody because there must be somebody to register the experiences of nobody. Consequently, the abstractness of nothing you experience in the world of the inward-facing senses is slightly something.

It only takes the brain a split second to twist nothing into an abstract experience in the world of the inward-facing senses. However, since the brain wants you to have a tangible experience in a substantial world, it uses one more second to distort nothing into something experienced as physical via the outward-facing senses.

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

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

THE EMPTY BREATH SYNCS THE INWARD AND OUTWARD-FACING SENSES
Suppose we once connected with the empty breath and quickly left it. However, it remained with us because it is unaware that we believe to be separated beings in the low-frequency world we experience with the outward-facing senses.

Yet the empty breath senses the stress coming from this belief, so it synchs our discomfort with the high-frequency world of the inward-facing senses. It is not because this world is more peaceful than the world of the outward-facing senses but because it is a high-frequency world. Thus the speedy and restless energy that appears to cause stress in the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses does not seem stressful.

The empty breath always functions as an automatic gear change between the outward and inward-facing sense. When connected with it, the abstractness in the world of the inward-facing senses becomes the base from which the world of the outward-facing senses is perceived. Thus it does not appear to consist of something but nothing. When not connected with it, the world of the outward-facing senses is prioritised. But when you relax, have sex or your response to something is perceived as ‘it is what it is, the ratio between the world of the outward and inward-facing senses changes per what and where you appear to be.

It is unnecessary to undo the belief in being someone definitive to connect with the empty breath, but it is essential to be willing to undo it. This does not require meditation or anything else in particular.

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

APPENDIX
Since most resist being nobody, they are not willing to undo the belief in being somebody. But if you acknowledge this, you confirm what you appear to be is make-believe. Thus you have a willingness to undo the belief in being somebody.

About willingness see also Willingness not to exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

This does not mean that you suddenly are gone, reborn or awakened. Like within the context of this belief, Santa Claus does not stop when you grow up. But the belief that he is real stops. However, there is one difference between the undoing of the belief in Santa Claus and you being someone definitive. When the belief in the latter is undone or in the process of being it, you are not disappointed. Instead, you feel free to enjoy being someone defined by time and space.
