No contrasts, no duality

Updated March 27, 2023

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

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

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

Therefore, the brain excludes antimatter from our awareness to create our experience of a tangible universe defined by time and space. Thus making it impossible for science to find antimatter, although their observations of the universe imply it must be somewhere.

The world of matter consists of contrasts. But unlike matter and antimatter, they coexist like two sides of a coin, like black and white. However, If you exclusively focus on black or white or equally on both, they become meaningless, so you enter a state of not-knowing. That is why if you want to remain in the consciousness of being someone, you only focus on these black letters until the white background is diminished and the collectively agreed meaning of the black letters is enhanced.

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

When you defocus, contrasts fade out. Hence the brain cannot fabricate an illusion of something definable. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

But should you want to enter a state of not knowing and its bliss of nothing, you can use Duality Hack #4 Inclusiveness frees you from duality to cancel out contrasts. It is not the only way. Below you can see other duality hacks for cancelling out the opposing sides of contrasts.

  • Duality Hack #2: If you do not believe but pretend to be someone definitive, you do not make a difference, thus cancelling out duality.
  • Duality Hack #3: Seeing everything as symbols of the formlessness of oneness cancel out contrasts because the apparent differences do not make a difference.
  • Duality Hack #6: Being in sync with the brain’s script, you are not definitive but relative. Thus contrasts are the means to be in sync and not to be someone definitive.
  • Duality Hack #8: Going with the interaction of the opposing elements in any contrast, the duality flow eventually makes you feel so complete that disparities disappear, thus contrasts.
  • Duality Hack #9: The more you connect with the empty breath, the more you become indifferent to differences. Thus contrasts are slowly but surely cancelled out.
  • Duality Hack #10: Unlike the other duality hacks, this one immediately undoes all contrasts once and for all.
  • Duality Hack #11: In the world of the inward-facing senses, contrasts are so abstract that you do not notice them sooner or later.
  • Hack #12: Being alone together, the beholder sees no difference between the experienced and the experiencer. Consequently, time and space stop making sense, wherefore there is nothing to hide reality is the formlessness of oneness.

If the opposing sides of contrasts are not kept apart to collaborate in the definition of each other, they blend, thus annihilating their individual meaning. The graphic is grabbed from the web.


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

Cancelling out contrast can be compared to complementary colours cancelling out each other when combined. For example, when you see red, the brain also generates its complementary colour. However, the latter is not fully projected out in the world. So to see it, you have to stare at red for a sustained time – thirty seconds to a minute – and then quickly look at a white surface to see its complementary colour.

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

However, in the brain, there are equal amounts of red and its complementary colour, which, depending on the colour model you have conditioned yourself to follow, is cyan or green. Combined, they cancel out each other, and neutral grey takes their place, making you feel in harmony. Grey is always the result of combining complementary colours, as illustrated in the image with the square colours.
