Help, I Need Somebody

What you appear to be is a construction of thoughts that has to be witnessed by somebody else to make it seem substantial. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you need help from somebody to witness you are different from them.

According to an article, published in the journal ‘Nature Communications,’ a team split a single photon in half and transmitted them to separated labs. Thereafter the team discovered, the divided particle only existed when observed. If not being witnessed by somebody, it ceased to exist.

CAN I GET A WITNESS
Quantum Physics says the moon only exists when you look at it. In other words, it needs to be witnessed to appear real. The whole world is built upon that logic. Nothing in a lawsuit is true before it has been proven to be seen or heard by somebody. If something has not been witnessed, it has not happened.

Since the world according to science consist of nothing solid, the perception of it as tangible must constantly be acknowledged for it to be experienced as something instead of nothing.

So if those appearing to witness your existence only exist except when you believe to see them, your appearance as someone definitive is make-believe.

That is why it is so important to socialise internally, externally or on social media. By doing that, you confirm there are others who, in return, seem to bear witness to you being what you believe to be. That works terrific if you feel approved by a group – for example, a country, a football team or a family – that you think is better than others. Hence you feel full of life.

But it only works when you follow the rules of the group. If not, the group punishes you by excluding you until you learn to adjust. In a courtroom, this is called justice.

WASN’T BORN TO FOLLOW
Jesus denied following the group’s demand, which was to withdraw that he was a son of god and not the world. But he did not agree to bear witness to their world. And since that always is seen as treason, he was judged to be excluded by crucifixion.

Even though upholding the appearance of being someone definitive is hard work and the price is suffering, most persons want to remain in the club of fellow believers and discard anything or anyone not bearing witness to the belief in being someone specific.

Hanging on the cross, he was not acknowledged anymore by his followers, and the god he believed in following left him. He was totally on his own. It would have been unbearable for anybody believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, but necessary to have this belief undone because having followers or being a follower requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is One.

That does not mean you feel alone. In the case of Jesus, everybody left him, but he did not leave them. Hence he was alone together. And since it is impossible to leave that which is One except in a fantasy of more than one, being alone together, thus appearing as more than one, is the obvious way to fantasise going back to oneness.

IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE
One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One says that what and where you appear to be is an illusion, which seems to cover the endlessness of that which is you. However, most prefer to ignore this so they can go on believing they are someone definitive, even though this means they are bound to end. But they softened the end with notions of heaven, where they forever will be something special.

Alcoholics like to follow a cure for hangovers, provided it does not involve eliminating the cause, which is alcohol. Likewise, those believing to be somebody definitive like to be cured for the suffering that the belief entails, if it does not involve eliminating the cause of their misery, namely the belief in being somebody definitive.

The unenlightened are worshipped for promising others that they are unique and part of something greater. In contrast, someone compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One is expelled for saying what you appear to be is nothing and not part of anything. Read more about that in hack #6.4 Enlightened or not.

Fortunately, one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One sees no difference between being expelled or worshipped. Both ways attempt to witness that a world where there seems to be more than one is real, but there is no more than that which is One, so they are equally illusionary.
