Sex, Karma and Meditation

Updated April 19, 2023

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

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

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

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

Besides, it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one that transformation is possible. And such a world is an illusion because spirituality is oneness, which is formless, thus endless, so there is no more than that which is One. In other words, changes enhance the belief that there is more than that which is One. If you do not believe that, you have no need to change into something purer or higher by stopping yourself from the thrill of an orgasm.

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

Since oneness is formless, thus endless, being physical is as unreal as Santa Claus. However, like it is exciting to participate in the fiction of Santa, it feels thrilling pretending to be physical per its rules (read more about that here). For example, the nature of physics is that the sun makes you warm, and water makes you wet. No degree of personal control can change that. Nor can it alter physical needs. And since nobody has forced you into the physical game, it is evident that you want to play it. So why not give it your best shot?

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

When you pursue the desire for sex in a tangible and horny way, the physical thrill of an orgasm is incredible. Especially because it is extended by the empty breath that makes the whole body quiver with joy. Hence you feel revitalised and not emptied after ejaculation. If the sexual desire is triggered by fantasy or something perceived as real does not matter. Everything experienced is make-believe. Read more about the empty breath in hack #9 The empty breath and the bliss of nothing.

If the car in this image seems to make you feel something special, you are constructing this effect yourself. The picture has no power to cause you to feel anything at all. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You get an immediate physical effect when you hit a nail on the wall. It is not caused by the past but by the present. Should you bang your finger while hammering the nail and remember you once hit somebody else, it has nothing to do with that. Slamming the finger is an accident. Nothing in your past caused it, nor is there anything set in motion for the future apart from going to the doctor if the finger is severely damaged.

If you want causal connections to imply, what and where you believe in being has a special meaning, you must invent them.

However, to suffer from bodily pain because you accidentally hit your finger does not sound adventurous. But if you can connect the pain with something from your childhood, you have a basis for a story of cause and effect in which you seem to be part of something with a greater meaning, thus having a special purpose.

Since life is oneness which is formless, thus endless, life cannot have been caused by something or cause anything. Consequently, everything in a world where there seems to be more than one is lifeless, hence meaningless.

On top of that, this construction of cause and effect makes it possible to justify any thought, emotion or action as ‘caused’ by something in the past, wherefore your life seems coherent and meaningful. But that is not life. It is that which is One, and it takes more than one to be cohesive and meaningful. In other words, you return to life by ignoring the concept of cause and effect.

Whenever you look for something that seems to justify your current state of mind, you fabricate cause and effect – also called karma. As it is an imagination, you feel its impact the moment you imagine this connection. There is no other karma than this imagined connection.

You cannot know why this picture is here. Therefore, since any reason is made up, the cause is fictional, thus the effect. In other words, what you see is make-believe – likewise, any other world experience. Nobody knows the cause of it. There is a theory about a big bang which created something out of nothing, which sounds ridiculous. Besides, there is neither nothing nor something because it requires more than one to be anything, and there is no more than that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen

The foundation of Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is that the world is unreal. And since you are real, you are not there. One way to know this is to look at the actions of others. You cannot see what has caused them, so the cause is thought up. Therefore, since only what is unreal needs to be imagined, the cause is fake. Consequently, the effect it seems to cause is an illusion.

You could also say that since the effect does not seem to have a cause and there is no effect without a course, what appears to be an effect of something is an illusion. And since nobody knows the cause of the world – apart from the weird claim that an explosion of nothing, called the big bang, created a universe of something – the experience of being in it is fictive, thus something you pretend. Read more about that in hack #2 Pretending to be in a world of duality, you undo it

The above about karma is written within a world where there seems to be more than one. Karma, therefore, is discussed in that context. However, ultimately, there is no sense in discussing karma because there is no more than that which is One, and it takes more than one to have karma.

You only need to relax through meditation because you hope for a better moment than the present one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

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


Meditation is not needed to stop thoughts when nobody has them.


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


Thoughts seem troublesome when you want to use them to construct a specific image of yourself, so you try to control them by meditating. Fortunately, when you do not want that, there is no need for thoughts to prove anything. Hence they are not bothersome.


Meditating to make thoughts and feelings go away confirms the belief that they are something, whereas seeing them as they are, namely, fleeting, they are nothing.


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


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

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

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

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


The absence of something is pure bliss. However, you do not get it if you meditate to achieve something but by when you stop perceiving thoughts as something.


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

Meditating to overcome separation is a con trick to fool you into believing it is real. There is nothing but oneness since it is formless, thus endless. Consequently, there is not something to change other than the belief that a world where there seems to be more than one is real. You can undo that by pretending to be someone there because what and where you pretend to be is unreal. See hack #2 Pretending to be in a world of duality, you undo it.

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


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


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


In the old days in India, those who came to live in the Ashrams were savages behaving very egoistically. They raped women and beat others to get what they wanted. Thus meditation was invented so they could learn to control themselves. And that is the same kind of meditation used nowadays.


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

The closer you look, the less it seems real

Updated July 11, 2023

You think you have chosen to see what you look at now. But it has been pieced together by the brain. So to hide that, the brain makes a story that seems to prove it has rendered it based on the light hitting your eyes. But the only proof is that the brain says so. And you only choose to believe it because otherwise, it is obvious you are the brain’s fantasy. Read more about that herePhoto © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius has not made the headline. It is a rewrite of a movie title. Nor is the rest of the article thought up by him. He cannot think. Instead, thoughts pop up like frequencies hitting a radio:

They meditate, chant, drink, take drugs or do something else to escape the present moment so they can avoid being in touch with the feelings it seems to bring about. But every time they try to get rid of an emotion, sadness, for example, psychologically, they enhance the sense of it. In other words, feeling wrong increases every time you try to correct it. For example:

  • Trying to purify yourself, you enhance feeling damned.
  • By pursuing freedom, you strengthen feeling imprisoned.
  • Eating to get healthy, you feed feeling incorrect.
  • Looking for Enlightenment, darkness is tightened.
  • Trying to unite, separation is enhanced.
  • In searching for love, self-hatred is ratified.
  • Seeking god, sin is reinforced.
  • Meditating to get peace, your frustrations increase.
  • Searching for a higher self, you confirm you are unworthy.
  • Wanting to be perfect, imperfection is confirmed.

Though there is not a single red pigment in this photo, you will probably make an image of red strawberries within you because your relationship with them tells you they are red. Likewise, when you have a relationship with the formlessness of life, that is what you remember every time you experience something in a world defined by time and space, regardless of how it appears to be. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You assume you read what Alexius has written. But it is an edited version filtered by the brain so that you seem to read something coherent with your past experiences.

If you want to know what this article really says and you decide to see the unfiltered and authentic version of it, you are caught in the idea that you can make a difference. It is like thinking that you can change the world of a computer game. It is impossible. Everything is fixed.

But if you pretend to be someone in the brain’s game, you are not there, thus free to enjoy it, like watching a magician’s show. You do not want to break the magic spell by looking for authenticity because you want to be entertained by the show. You may consider this cheating, but every experience is an illusion fabricated by the brain.


In the dark of the night, it seems Alexius catches a glimpse of one of his cats. He decides it must be the black cat, who can be a bit of a bully. But then its movement reminds him of a cat that is especially dear to him. And so, he changes the interpretation of what he ‘sees’ in the dark. That is how we ‘see’ the world. It is a construction of thoughts. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The world is designed as a puzzle, where you are rewarded when you get the pieces right. But the puzzle is incomplete. A part is missing. No worries. If you pretend to be there, the gap does not matter because you are not where you pretend to be.


Since appearing as someone definitive is meaningless, you always look for meaning. However, no matter what you find, you doubt it because unconsciously, you know you are nothing.


It takes a lot of energy to uphold the belief in being someone, but it requires no strength to turn it off.


Neither science, religion, nor anything else can explain the universe’s existence because it does not exist.


No one will notice duality is a con if not looking for it. That is why Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is about looking at duality, thus seeing it as a con to distract you from non-duality.


Be aware that the explanations in this article are metaphors used to explain what cannot be described. For example, the world is not a movie but compared to it. And it is not on top of oneness because it is formless, so there is neither something outside nor inside.


Life is everything alive. That is why it does not contain anything with an end, and what you believe in being is lifeless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A world of duality has indeed been explored by non-duality. It started with a big bang from where time was projected forward linearly. However, there was no going back to the same in a world of duality. For example, if ice cubes melted in water, they could not be extracted and made into the same cubes. And the light radiating from a bulb or the sun only went forward. It never returned.

In non-duality, it is impossible to go forward without going backwards simultaneously. It has to be one movement to remain one perpetual present, thus securing everything remains real. Therefore, since that was not the case with duality, it was seen as unreal and discarded at the exact moment it moved forward without going backwards. However, parts of non-duality were very excited by the concept of linear time, giving them something to hope for.

So they decided to continue the cancelled adventure of duality by making a fansite where followers could participate in fabricated follow-up stories of duality. Of course, if you think the stories are real, linear time seems dangerous. But if you know everything happens simultaneously (see What time is it!?), it is fun pretending to be in a world with past and future because you are not where you pretend to be (see hack #2 Pretending to be in a world of duality, you undo it).

That said, non-duality does not consist of parts that differ. Therefore, since nobody can investigate duality or go on fantasising about it, the above is a metaphor. But in its context, duality was deemed unreal the moment it was perceived, thus instantly aborted. However, afterimages of this moment repeatedly played in an interactive movie in cyberspace seem to extend the cancelled show of duality.


The squares in this image have been multiplicated from one square by Alexius with the help of an algorithm on his phone. So though you may get the impression that there are several different squares with their specific individuality, they are all the same. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A world of duality can be compared to The Matrix in the movie of the same name. The Matrix is perceived as reality by most humans in the film. However, it is a simulated reality layered on top of the real world.

But unlike in the movie, underneath the virtual world, there is not a world of machines but non-duality. And duality is not created by machines who trick you into seeing something that is not there. Nobody tricks you into seeing it. That is your choice. You think the peace of non-duality is dull and prefer the thrill of duality.


Pinching yourself in the arm, the brain registers a physical feeling, wherefore you conclude you are alive. But since the brain creates the experience of the physical sensation, the conclusion does not prove you exist as someone in a tangible world outside the brain – like you are not in the dreams composed by the brain, even though it feels so.


This pic is totally flat and the movements that appear to be there is a trick made by moving flat pictures on top of each other in a speed so there appear to be dimensional movements.This is the illusion of the world. In oneness everything is so fast that there is no movement to see. That is why it is one.This animation is as flat as a pancake. The experience of dimension and motion is an illusion made by moving flat images on top of each other so fast that there appear to be dimensional movements. It can be compared to the appearance of movements in a world where there seems to be more than one. They are fake because motion calls for more than one, and there is no more than that which is One.


This image consists of zeros and ones added together in different combinations. If these combinations seem strange, you probably try reorganising them into a collectively agreed picture of something specific. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When Alexius, many years ago, organised his first computer and put files in folders, he thought he would never run out of space. He also imagined the computer arranged his files in the order he had formed.

Do you see two faces or a vase in this image? The answer seems important within the reality of a world defined by time and space because, without definitions, it does not appear to exist. Actually, it does not matter because your electronic media neither has room for faces nor a vase. The image is an illusion symbolising something that is not there. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Nowadays, he knows better. There is no hierarchy among the files on the computer. None of them is on top or buried deep under others. It is make-believe because there are no levels on the hard disk. It is flat, and all the files and folders are non-dimensional. They are not even files and folders.

It is all code, and the code for one file might be spread all over the hard disk. Therefore, what Alexius experiences on his screen are nothing but zeros and ones added together to make it possible for his brain to simulate the world he expects to see. The same applies to whatever we see, except it is not made from zeros and ones but empty space.


The movie you watch while wearing 3-D glasses is not in 3-D. It is a simulation. The same applies to the world where you believe in being. It is not defined by time and space. And like the world in the 3-D glasses, it is not even there.


The brain’s fantasy of the world is not without flaws. For example, any colour in the spectrum of a light beam has a complementary colour. But there is a gap in the light beam, so the complementary colour of lime green is missing. The brain corrects its mistake on the spot by blending blue and red, so you see the missing colour, pink. Alexius’ Duality Hacks takes this a step further. Since all experiences are fake, hack #10 The Enlightenment of that which is One erases them immediately. The other duality hacks do that over time, so you can enjoy the belief in experiencing something while having it undone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

All colours in a light beam have a complementary colour. But it has a gap, so lime green has no complementary colour. Therefore, if you believe in seeing pink, which is theoretically the complementary colour of lime green, you are mistaken. Pink does not exist. That is why Wikipedia calls it an extra-spectral colour. Follow this link if you want more info about pink, also called fuchsia and magenta.

The reason you believe to see the colour pink, although it is not there, is that every time you, theoretically, should see it as a complementary colour to lime green, the brain mix blue and red internally, thus creating pink to fill the gap in the spectrum of a light beam.



What you think you see is precisely that. It is an image composed by one of the brain’s many scripts to fabricate a familiar picture of the world where it has made you believe in being. For example, you do not see the world upside down as you should if the brain processes your experiences per the info it receives from your sensory system, as it claims. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Once upon a time, a king had fun having people beheaded in the blind spot we all have when looking at something from a specific angle. Since the brain fills the gap with our recent memory, the king kept seeing the decapitated ones with their heads until he changed his viewing angle, and they had no heads, which he found very amusing.

If you seem to see an E here, you are using the E, you have made in your mind, to hide all the empty space.

If you believe in seeing an ‘E’ here, you imagine something where there is nothing. That is basically how you see something. It does not mean that reality is nothing. Reality is oneness, and since it requires more than one to have a shape, it is formless, thus endless. That is why it cannot be seen: anything experienced is an illusion.

If you have cataracts, your eyes are full of blind spots that the brain fills with something. However, it is not necessarily what the blind spots block you from seeing – for example, if you look at a lake with swans and they are in the blind spots, the brain fills it with water. Hence you miss seeing the swans.

Even though your eyes are perfectly healthy, you are blind for about two hours throughout the day. That is because the brain screens out what you see to prevent you from getting seasick when the eyes move. However, you do not notice it because the brain hides it by filling the gaps with visual impressions of something similar.

And you probably do not notice your digital media screen is empty now. There only seems to be something because zeros and ones are manipulated to appear as something familiar.

The same applies to the rest of the world you believe in seeing. It is as virtual as this page, and so is the brain that seems to help you fill it with something looking real.

There are probably many gaps in this article that automatically have been filled with something to m ke you feel at ease.
