Technology Similes to Better Understand Life

The last few decades of technological achievements have provided numerous chipforbrainblue77.jpginnovations to ponder.  New information and new ways of living our lives are now aspects of current cultural and social advancements that previously were only considered as the subject matter of science fiction novels.

And likewise, we have new ways of ‘understanding something completely new’ by comparing it to something vaguely familiar—something already existing.  In writing that ‘understanding a subject better by comparing the unfamiliar to that which is familiar’ using the words “as” or “like,” is called using a “simile.”

This matters WHY?

Well I’ve been reading Paul Selig’s trilogy Book of Mastery (Book I), Book of Truth (Book II), Book of Freedom (Book III); and I find that the subject matter described within is seligbooksandvibrationtextmore easily comprehended because of my existing beliefs in multi-dimensions, multiple-lives, energy work, etc, along with my minuscule knowledge of computer-related technology.  It is the last consideration that I’m using for this ‘simile material.’

Prior to perhaps three decades ago when average households began their meteoric acquisitions of personal computers, most of us had no concept of such things as virtual realities or databases, and especially no comprehension of electronic communications systems.  (Hard to imagine, I know.)

But way back then, multi-function calculators were considered “high-tech” devices, and everyone owned a land-line or had to use a public phone booth to call anywhere.  How many of those are still around?

So now that these relatively NEWER electronic marvels are considered common fare and the latest and greatest innovations are often conversation fodder in daily office banter, our personal understanding of “all things possible” has risen sharply over the last three decades primarily because of how fast our electronic technology is advancing, and with that advancement our understanding what was once incomprehensible, becomes blasé faire.   bookofmasteryselig5.jpg

However, back to Selig’s book series and how this all relates.

The subject matter described in Selig’s trilogy is actually what I have been blogging about for the last few years: The ability to shift our frequencies higher to tune into a higher reality—a higher consciousness, and live a more loving and compassionate life in the process.

With the rise of Virtual Reality games and movies, that mind-stretching has allowed most of us a glimpse into considering the possibility that the life we are presently living is as illusionary as the VR game that we are playing with our electronic devices.

And with this consideration in mind, that also means that this life we actually do live is changeable in a positive way if the “collective consciousness” of our time can shift all our attention out of the ‘fear and hatred frequencies’ and into the higher frequencies of lovingness often called Christ Consciousness or Buddha Consciousness, or even simply called enlightenment.

We use those well known and well documented human comparisons of Christ- and Buddha-behavior to help the masses comprehend that softer/gentler attitude and mode of behavior necessary to achieve a higher frequency collective shift.  We refer to those known masters who highercomnsciousnessblue55best demonstrated what that loving kindness attitude and behavior is, was, or could be. We use them as examples—similes for depicting the highest standards of loving kindness because it’s pretty hard to relate to a non-descript ‘something’ called a “frequency.”

The importance to consider here is far less about the personage—the myth—the story of the teacher or human model (like Jesus or Buddha), and more about the higher FREQUENCY of consciousness that those models attained and adopted to reach that level of loving kindness for everyone and everything.  Once those consciousness masters successfully shifted their own personal awareness, they shifted everyone and everything around them as well by simply holding that higher frequency within themselves, because when your direct connection to SOURCE is that strong, you simply radiate that higher frequency to all around you.

And when the frequency that we personally hold rises to that higher level of lovingnesss then the world around us begins to shift higher because it has to match the frequency that we collectively hold.  I think the point of the Selig series is in learning how to shift your own thinking and behavior into that higher frequency Christ-/Buddha-consciousness range.

(For more on the frequency levels of consciousness subject, eyeoftheeyehawkinsyou might want to read Dr. David R. Hawkins’ The EYE of the I, from Which Nothing Is Hidden. Hawkins focuses on tying all awareness into light frequencies and calibrating the consciousness levels between the general masses and the great avatars/teachers who reached that state of extreme expanded awareness. I’m not certain I agree with everything he says, but he gives a thorough explanation of the multiple levels of light frequency consciousness per his theory.)

Anyway, the Selig books may be of interest to some so I’m mentioning them, and I do think I’ve noticed a shift upward in my own thinking since I began reading them—not so much that this subject matter is new territory for me to consider, but that holding that consideration so strongly for longer periods of time, is helping me to stabilize the concepts in my mind and to “think” from those view points and SEE life in a more clear, unbiased manner because of them.  Or that’s just my opinion and/or delusion.

The main simile of importance here is the one on comparing this life to a Virtual Reality game where you choose your scenario and your actions during the game. If you stay in the ‘fighting and killing games,’ it’s pretty hard to raise your frequency into loving kindness.lifeasvrgame58.jpg

 

So maybe it’s time to choose a new Virtual Reality scenario for all of us to explore.  This ‘fighting and killing thing’ is going nowhere good for anyone.

 

 

 

The Satellite Connections

Related, but long story:  Long, long ago, I visited my friend in the IT department of the agency where we both worked. She was madly typing into a satellite, data-entry station that was direct-connected into an enormous mainframe computer in an adjacent, sealed, climate-controlled room. mainframebiggy.jpg

From her satellite station she could access all the information the mainframe contained, and even connect to other similarly-connected satellite stations both within the building and throughout the school systems that were likewise connected into the mainframe computer at our agency.

It was like being an active link to a vast neurological network throughout the district’s school systems with the core ‘brain’ centered at our agency. For the schools and our agency, it was a cost-effective, mutually shared system for providing payrolls and all education-related data among a large group of serious users.

apple-macintosh-1984-history.jpgAt that same time in the agency, I was the Graphic Artist and I had my own Mac computer independent of that huge mainframe. My early Mac certainly had its limitations, but it also had its own system and didn’t require an interconnected network like the data-entry satellite stations did.  Back then it was my first understanding of the difference in computer abilities, data storage parameters, and the true difference between a satellite connection and a stand-alone computing system.

Finally, the point:  While we tend to think of ourselves as that stand-alone Mac, I think we are more likely a satellite station to the GOD-mainframe called “absolute consciousness.” Our limited receivers can access the parameters of general consciousness that apply to humans and to their present state of collective consciousness. And codeitrightfirstwhile our individual satellite stations are self-contained in functioning ability, they are limited by their personal receiver’s frequency translators and internal processing units. (I wrote about frequency translators a few posts ago, and a processing unit would be how fast you can make sense of the data that you receive.)

So this morning I was reading a blog entry from Alberto V. called “The Invisible World: Ever Present and Accessible”  (https://thefourwinds.com/blog/shamanism/invisible-world-ever-present-accessible/?fbclid=IwAR2MPOqBWrcxidvssnMY_FFD0ujFWk-Ba005rGnOqhBHN_1_UDt0uiBLAng ) and suddenly recognized my early education on satellite systems connected into mainframes.

“…The sages say the reason we are born into a body in the physical world is to evolve and grow, to acquire maturity and wisdom. To use a metaphor from physics, when we’re embodied, we’re like a photon in a particle state; while in the invisible world, we’re like a photon in a field state. The particle state is our “local” nature—flesh and blood, sitting on a couch reading. The field state is our “nonlocal” nature, in which we extend to the farthest reaches of the universe and are at one with all things. When we die and leave this body behind, we return to our nonlocal nature, to our field state, to invisible Oneness….Our field state, the one we inhabit in between births, encompasses all of creation. The field is insubstantial—we don’t have enough substance to contain our awareness…..

The invisible world exists alongside the visible one, ever present and accessible. We can bring its wisdom into our world at any time to provide healing and balance. The way we do this is by activating the circuitry in the brain that allows us to experience our interconnectedness to all things and all beings in the cosmos. These higher-order neural networks, like all neural networks, are made up of brain cells connected to each other, of neurons that fire together and wire together….

Today the interface between our senses and our machines is moving us ever closer to being able to access all the knowledge in the world instantaneously. But this is not the kind of omniscient awareness I’m referring to. The awareness I speak of is the mind’s ability, in the field state, to experience the cosmos firsthand, across the farthest reaches of space and beyond time….”

Just a thought here: This blog post by Alberto may not be the answer to all our questions, but it may be the correct question framing to consider for acquiring more accurate answers to our deepest questions.

Does the Human Brain Create or Receive the MIND?

Just saw Deepak Chopra’s latest article: “A Brain Theory That Work – If You Turn It Upside Down” http://j.mp/2AKlDg6  and instantly acknowledged that his theories are likely the inspiration behind my own beliefs that the human brain is not so much a “creator” of 47506493_10155969808855665_7180001492781236224_n.jpggeneral consciousness but is more so a “receiver” of available transmissions from the Great Reservoir of Consciousness.

What do I mean by that? 

Our brains do create the physical capability (hardware device) to comprehend what is happening around us but they do not create ALL that is comprehensible, because that quantity of pure consciousness would far exceed our brain’s capacity to contain it.  It would simply “blow our minds” with information overload.

So with this theory of human brain as principle receiver rather than the primary creator of consciousness, all that is (1) known, (2) knowable and (3) beyond our human comprehension does exist in that unlimited reservoir of pure consciousness, but the quantity of consciousness that you can receive from the reservoir is directly dependent on your band-width capability (your pipeline capacity) that you are receiving from the reservoir.

An example: Think of the enormity of the Colorado River being held back behind the massive Hoover Dam, and someone taps a small 2-inch diameter pipe into the face of that dam wall to allow a high-powered stream of held-back water to squirt forth from that pipeline. That’s a lot of pressurized water pouring out of there in a short time, but it isn’t overwhelming to you.Hoover Dam354.jpg

Now consider a much larger 10-inch diameter pipe being tapped into that same dam wall-face, and then imagine the quantity and force of the water flow emerging from that wider band-width connection.  That would easily be powerful enough to wash you away with the force of its flow when it hits.

Lastly imagine that a huge chunk of the dam wall-face suddenly collapses, and the quantity, force and power of that powerful wall of water comes slamming down onto you with the massive increase in the river’s untamable flow.  You probably wouldn’t be around to even consider what had hit you.

That water-flow comparison among various diameter taps into the dam reservoir represents the comparative difference in our capacity to tap into and receive information from the pure consciousness reservoir.  Unlimited/unrestricted access to the reservoir of pure consciousness, as I mentioned previously, would absolutely blow your mind (your personal receiver) apart.

brainmagiccreation55.jpgAs Chopra also states, scientific theories are still fluid over the brain’s role in creating or receiving consciousness, along with the role of light-wave frequency and vibration in the quality of the consciousness received. He cites the ancient Vedic Seer’s version of a theory called Shabda.

He states:  “I doubt that anyone will abandon a vibrational theory of consciousness just because it has a fatal flaw. The assumption that the brain physically produces the mind is too ingrained. But it’s worth commenting that in ancient India creation was also described in terms of vibration, in a theory called Shabda. It holds that anything, including the entire objective universe and the entire world of mind, can be assigned a vibrational frequency, and this frequency holds each thing together. So far, Shabda agrees with modern physics in a general way.

But Shabda explains that the vibrations have a conscious source in the same absolute, pure awareness that is the source of creation. Therefore,

wetapthereservoir.jpg

it isn’t baffling that resonance exists or that the infinite complexity of neurons talking to each other results in thoughts that make sense. Consciousness organizes the whole process from top to bottom—it knows what it’s doing….”

Sunday Chuckles

I am a fan of NASA’s Facebook page because they post such amazing images of our solar system and beyond.  So this morning, they posted this fantastic image of Jupiter up close and personal; and it got personal to a few folks out there which made for some much needed laughter.

nasalodo987.jpg  NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration

 “Inkblot test!    What do you see in this image by NASA’s Juno Mission to Jupiter? We keep finding new shapes hidden in Jupiter’s swirling clouds. Look closer: https://go.nasa.gov/2qMt8ih

jupiteratmosphere56.jpg

To which the viewership responded in hilarious fashion:

  • Scott Dew I see our lord and savior Cthulu
    • ( according to Urban Dictionary: “A character in Lovecraft’s tale ‘The Call of Cthulhu’. Cthulhu is a monstrous entity who lies “dead but dreaming” in the city of R’lyeh, a place of non-Euclidean madness presently (and mercifully) sunken below the depths of the Pacific Ocean.Cthulhu appears in various monstrous and demonic forms in early myths of the human race.”)
  • Марио Колев Here come the religious people, even if their god is fictional….
  • Daniel Harden It’s a lady giving a Velociraptor the Heimlich.
  • Liz Gaffney Air quality in Los Angeles right about now due to fires. (So sorry California.)
  • David Jobling I’m not religious but I can see the full nativity here, which is a bit of a head trip.
  • Arun Krishnarayan A Bird of prey on the right and Gandalf with a bad cold.
    And at the bottom is a shark with a wide open mouth & woman lying face down in the middle.
  • Saranda Tessera The only true god is Zeus.  Scripture tells us so. Anyway the picture of Jupiter (Latin for Zeus) is breathtaking. What a chaotic creation.
  • Steve Parkinson Keep your sky pixie nonsense off scientific fact pages please.

At least the comments made me chuckle. 🙂

Our minds constantly associate familiar memories to objects and items that we are unfamiliar with in an attempt to identify the threat or safety of them before we proceed further in encountering them. And likewise, if you want to see something that others may not see in a burnt piece of toast, you will do so mainly because you are looking for it no matter where you look.

Unimaginatively I see an amazing image of Jupiter’s atmosphere with wild weather interactions.  (But I totally concur about the lady giving a Velociraptor the Heimlich–it’s clear as day.)

How People Think

I saw this graphic and smiled because I liked the image of a person with similar hair style as the tree top trying to understand the tree’s perspective on LIFE given its growth situation.howpeoplethink.png

Left to your own without the text, you can interpret the image itself in many ways, as I just did.

Then the text under the image may lead you in a direction that you hadn’t initially considered, and your mind then decides to settle on something in between the text meaning and your first impression of the image.

Is the text saying that we think the tree should be growing straight and true, but instead it is leaning leftward before reaching for the sky?  Is the person trying to understand that directional shift? It may not be growing as straight as we think that it should be but it is still growing and functioning. Does that mean that nature functions differently than we think that it should?

thoreau quote.jpgThese are all speculative interpretations. Much of life as we perceive it is due to our own interpretation of what we see around us. That personal interpretation is built on so many factors, like how safe we feel at the time, what kind of history we might have with a similar situation, who we are with, why we are in that particular location viewing what we are viewing, not to mention what we were once told about how we should view everything we see around us; i.e., are we tied to certain beliefs about our existence and our place in this wild and crazy world?

Personal attitude means everything in how we interpret our world. What are we looking to understand about our world? How much do we really want to know anything beyond how it directly affects us?

What is our attitude toward being in that particular situation or encountering something similar to it?

Why would we care or not care how the tree grows? Is that leaning a natural aspect of that particular tree’s upward growth? Is the tree overcoming a serious wound near its base that stunted the growth cells on one side but allowed full growth on the other side of it so that it grew abnormally stronger on one side than the other before self correcting a few feet  from the ground? Is this some metaphor on overcoming personal difficulties?

Again, why would we care?

To me, if the person in the image did NOT care, she would NOT be mimicking the tree lean. But that is also just my interpretation.

And if we, the perceivers of the situation did not care, we would ignore it completely and not give it a second thought. But to “ignore” the setting and situation refers again to the meaningful-silencetext message of the image: “The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between how nature works and the way people think.”

So what did you think? Did you try to understand anything about the graphic itself, or did you just blow it off? Was it meaningless or meaningful to you?

And does it matter which it was?

The Stranger-Than-We-Can-Think Universe

strangerthanwethink.jpg

I’m pretty sure I came into this world with a big question mark on my forehead; and you can view that in every possible way because over the years I’ve probably considered most of them as well.

But foremost in my own search for answers to my deepest and most pressing life questions are the “how things work” and “Why are they intended to function in the manner that they do?” issues.

To me there is ample evidence that we live in a purposeful universe. We may not understand those purposes behind much of what we see around us, but there seems to be a logic of sorts—an intention, if you will, behind the structure of what we call physical reality and the interacting forces/components that create it.

I think it was one of my personal heroes, Buckminster Fuller, who said something to the effect that ‘geometry was the language of creation.’   If you as a reader want a mental challenge, read his two volumes of Synergetics (Book 1 and 2): Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking’.  I won’t pretend that I fully understood them but I did get the basic idea behind them—life is designed—nature is an intentional creation, but the questions of why, by whom and for whom are still unknown.

Buckminster Fuller was such a prolific thinker and articulator of the complexities of reality:

“Up to the Twentieth Century, reality was everything humans could touch, smell, see, and hear. Since the initial publication of the chart of the electromagnetic spectrum, humans have learned that what they can touch, smell, see, and hear is less than one-millionth of reality. Ninety-nine percent of all that is going to affect our tomorrows is being developed by humans using instruments and working in ranges of reality that are nonhumanly sensible.”   [R. Buckminster Fuller on Education (University of zodiacman.jpgMassachusetts Press, 1979), p. 130]

Or maybe we could consider another of my favorites, C.G. Jung’s thoughts on reality:

Jung: “The underlying, primary psychic reality is so inconceivably complex that it can be grasped only at the farthest reach of intuition, and then but very dimly. That is why it needs symbols.” – Carl Jung

So while much of what I write refers to relatable subjects that affect us in somewhat comprehensible ways, there is still much that also daily affects us that we are unable to grasp even the concepts of, let alone the significance of those affectations.

EintsteinQuestionEverything.pngAnd from Albert Einstein came the importance of stating those questions themselves:  “ If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.”    [Albert Einstein, (1879 – 1955) Physicist & Nobel Laureate How to Define a Problem]

The world we think that we know is an intricate place that is likely beyond our present ability to understand the interconnectivity and true complexities of it.  But that doesn’t stop us from trying to do so in our own ways.

This blog is about mine.

Conflicting Contextual Vocabularies for Our REALITY Experience

The advantage of having so many unusual personal experiences and such broad energy-reality einstein3.jpgbased training opportunities is that they provide me with an expansive working framework from which to form my own opinions on life processes, as well as opinions on the underpinnings of our group reality.

The disadvantage of being trained in so many different energy-manipulation techniques and healing disciplines is that sometimes the “rules” and vocabulary of one healing universe clashes with the nomenclature (categories and classification) of another healing universe, creating clarity confusion in perspective and interpretation of the playing field itself.

That is the problem I felt internally with some of the statements I had just made in the previous posting on “stuck in past-lives”. From the hypnosis and philosophical aspect, onerealitypercept6.png cannot really be “stuck” (still existing) in that past-life situation while currently viewed from the present-life situation. Only energy patterns can be maintained in multi-settings until resolved between the two situations.

HOWEVER (the inevitable ‘however’), from a shamanic perspective one could state that soul-part retrieval actually performs the function of bringing back an energetic part of someone who is still “stuck” in that other dimensional existence, and without the soul-part retrieval, the present-day person is incomplete and missing an aspect of their soul—which is the complete energy-body unit.

I have actually participated in this shamanic soul-retrieval process, both as a practitioner and as a subject, so I know how it works, what you see as the practitioner during the soulretrieval7.jpgprocess, and how it feels as a subject when the wayward energy-part returns to you. So part of me says that if you viewed the “stuck there” situation strictly from the perspective of shamanic soul-retrieval, one might refer to it as “part of the person was still stuck there.”  But as a hypnotist and an intuitive, I would NOT refer to it in that manner.

How do I resolve that discrepancy in my statement of ‘what remains stuck’ where?

If I were far more intellectually advanced than I presently am and knew all there is to know about everything, I’m sure I’d have no problem clarifying my declarations within the TRUTH matrix of “how things actually work.”

Unfortunately, as a lowly human, I’m limited in my understanding and experience of contextdependent6.jpgALL that IS. I can only relate and explain the functions of the unseen universe we live in as best I can within my own frame of contextual reference.

I can speculate on how things actually work. I can guess at others. But I don’t know of anyone who can definitively claim that he or she knows the universal laws of physics when it pertains to multi-verses and multi-lives lived within them other than saying purely and simply that WE ARE MULTI-DIMENSIONAL ENERGY UNITS. That part I do understand and that feels like a TRUE statement to me.

HOW that ENERGY is actually packaged and dispersed throughout the multi-verses is the question.

WHY it happens the way it does, is also the question.vrearthplanes5.jpg

WHERE it happens is of course always a biggie since I keep mentioning the Virtual Reality and Simulated Reality possibilities, but the WHEN of it happening keeps us locked in this loop of “can’t quite make sense” of how this all transpires (Are all multi-lives happening simultaneously—no past or future, only NOW and in parallel?), and it relates to the OVERALL picture because we don’t know what that completed picture is supposed to look like.

We don’t even know what we don’t know.

I could simply be trying to justify this confusing mess in my own head; but I also think there is more importance here than letting this whole ‘What is reality?’ question slip silently back into the shadows of our distant memory because our ego feels way too uncomfortable just thinking about it.

My guess, and it is only an intuitive nudge, is that if I am questioning all this ‘What is reality?’ stuff right now, then many others are doing so as well, which could be further evidence that we, as a self-aware species, are finally awakening to our true energetic potential, and are now desiring to know our true origins.

What happens when we finally do figure it all out?lifttheveilreality.jpg

No clue.

It could be “GAME OVER” for all of us and time for a NEW game.   If that’s the case, let’s hope it is one less violent in nature.
