Hello,

I must say this is surely the most interesting thread I've found in the last years...

Just discover this link in another post, but it seems very related with some of the Chaol postulates:

Last post before I call it a night. Just got a job. Started yesterday. Nothing heavy. Just realised that one of the main systems we use is has nexus in its name. Please someone tell me how is that for relativity or synchronicity or something! So let's see what this nexus brings. I can definitely say its relative to me. Don't know about anybody else. Check out the definition of nexus to blow your beautiful minds.

Goodnight hf

For easy access set alarm 3-6 hours into sleep. Wake up pee, go back to bed with your Visualization of Sekhmet. To get there, imagine Sekhmet, it may help to imagine that you are Sekhmet. I might be reading so dont sneak up on me! Ill be wearing the SpawnX shirt of course.

Party in the Great Sphinx! Bring reading glassescool2

[snips]

It is here that we will meet. Inside of Sekhmet's twin in Egypt.

The main hall of this structure is fairly deep underground and connects with most of the other structures around it. (It's really all one giant structure rather than what you see on the map or in pictures. Much of what is above-ground is a type of power source, however.) The main hall is about 50 feet high and 25 feet wide. The length is a bit difficult to describe (as it transcends the usual physicality) but just imagine that it's about 100 feet long with deeply unfocused light at the end. There are various inscriptions on the wall all the way up, with their original colors intact. Off to the side of this hall is a small room filled with books. There is light everywhere from various points on the walls. (The library may be dark at times, depending on how well you allow yourself to see what is there.)

From now, you can meet me in this place.

To get there, imagine Sekhmet inside of the main hall facing the length of the hall. It may help to imagine that you are Sekhmet. When you are in the hall feel free to walk around.

(I describe it above as it's not the easiest place to get to. You will know you are there by the vividness of the experience.)

We discuss the books on the shelves and the inscriptions on the walls. (You will be able to read most of the books, and the inscriptions are accessed by the sound of your thoughts. It is up to you to figure out how to reaching the higher ones.)

There is a lot of knowledge here and understanding to be had. There is also a replica of the timeline of modern civilization (that is in what you call the Great Pyramid) that extends from a few thousand years in past to several hundred years in future. There is also a type of city with lagoons and other interesting features accessible from these chambers that we may explore at an other time (however, you are welcome to find it yourself if you're enterprising).

We can meet there frequently, as you may need to revisit multiple times. Unfortunately you may not be able to do much unless I am there to 'hold the door open' for you (for this particular experience), but I will try to extend myself to everyone's perspective.

If we meet together it would be in the library. I'm not sure that we can experience others in the main hall but it may be possible. Strange things happen in the main hall. (Though danger is irrelevant to all.)

If you will, tell us here about what new understanding or experience you have had inside of 'the great sphinx'. (Note that I do not retell the name here, as it has great power in the physical world. But you are free to make up your own name for it.)

 Quoting: CatCarel


Validation! Recently Chaol asked, "How would you change a dream?" Well, I would imagine differently.

I'm fascinated by your astro chart changing- is the difference between the two significant in regards to what happened?
 Quoting: CatCarel


I am trying to think of how to answer this succinctly and to also stay within the subject matter of this thread. Basically, I was born along a geographical Sun line and then moved 1500 miles away, coincidentally along that same Sun line. I led a busy, vibrant life, which was compatible with the tendencies indicated by an astrological Sun.

Thirty years later, I ran out of steam. I had one of those little deaths. I began to withdraw from everything that had gone before. The people around me commented on how different I had become. I noticed it too, but couldn't explain it myself.

While casually reviewing the effects my natal planets have on topographical locations, I was astounded to see that the Sun line had turned into a Neptune line. This was not there before! I don't even know where the Sun line went to. A Neptune influence is described as dreamy (also as deceitful, but that is another story).

I went from being outgoing (a Sun line) to becoming a near-recluse (a Neptune line), and without moving my household. These are lines that should remain fixed relative to my natal chart. They should not indicate a Sun influence for five decades and then a Neptune influence a few years later.

..."if we provide less potential energy than our interactions require, our time perspective is reversed." (As potential energy is being structured more than it is not.) ...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 183770


Hello!

An important point about how most people in my world seem to think.

What does fat have to do with time travel?

Fat cells, for example, are of the potential energy element.

You could translate the above example into: "if I eat less fat than I need for my daily activities then the ageing of my body and mind will decrease."

The same concept that can make most of us lose body weight and live longer lives can power a shift of time perspective.

In this world we look at something and ignore most of what we see, thinking "that does not apply to me".

In my world we can form relationships with everything, thinking: how can I translate that into something useful to me?

Helps,

Thanks.
 Quoting: chaol 183770


Thank you!

I have been trying to understand the relationships in my life. I do try to ignore most of what I see, you are right, but I realize that I have relationships with everyone and everything. I will try to think of how I can translate my relationships into something useful to me.

Consciousness to me..hmm that would be my own perception of myself, my awareness of my own being.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 757374


Excellent!

Then the question for you then is, What do you consider your "self"?

If it is your body, then what do you do with a part of your self when you clip your nails or cut your hair? If it is only the 'living' part of your body that you consider your self, where does your self go when you lose a pound?

What is your self when you are dreaming?

"Self" by itself is a bit difficult to pin. Perhaps because the usual basic assumptions about what self is could be expanded.

If it is "awareness of my own being" as you mentioned, then what does it mean to be aware of another being?

Thanks.
 Quoting: chaol 183770


Thank you!

Being aware of another being means that you acknowledge the relationship between your self and another being.

Self + awareness of another being = Relationship?
1+2=3?

what form of transportation did you use to get here?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 655873


Interesting!

An analogy would be the kind of transportation you would use to go to medical school.

There are many kinds of transportation. Each type serves a purpose appropriate to the intention.

A "time traveler" for example would be expected to use a machine to "travel through time". However, no such machine is required when you're manipulating time right now.

We have discovered that the the most elemental force in the universe is perspective. We use perspective to our advantage. Here, it is taken more for granted.

I sometimes go back and forth, although I spend most of my time here.

There is no 'transportation' between spaces because there is no space. Only perspective.

So, we change perspective. (You do this all the time, too. Most obvious is when you go to dream.)

Thanks.
 Quoting: chaol 183770


Thank you!

I like the perspective that you are sharing with us in this Elementon!

I find it fascinating that we've been advised over and over again that we need only "be" the change we want to see in our realm of existence. Yet, we still focus on what we do not prefer and make that more relative.

[snip]

 Quoting: MutantMessiah



I know this is such a simple concept, yet 'for now' I still struggle with it. Just being honest. How do I "be" my vibrant, healthy, active, wonderful self during the moments when I can't even walk a straight line (due to frequent vertigo spells) and am on the verge of vomiting? How do I "be" that clever, inquiring mind I know myself to be when the simple act of scrolling a computer screen can set off a vertigo spell, or when experiencing the typically quite severe 'brain fog' that follows a spell? I could go on, but I won't, I think you get my drift.

I do trust completely that I will overcome this dis-ease, I am a naturally optimistic person. I have been able to apply what I have absorbed here to other aspects of my life successfully, so not sure what prevents equal success in this area. I would appreciate hearing from others who have any thoughts on at all on the subject, or similar experiences.

The main approaches I have taken so far have been to ignore/make-less-relative my symptoms...so far, frustratingly, I still notice them. Another angle I take, is seeing the experience as a blessing in disguise. And one thing I definitely do appreciate is the fact that I feel dizzy or 'spaced-out' which contributes to the sensation that this reality is really rather dreamy and not altogether 'solid'.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.

I find it fascinating that we've been advised over and over again that we need only "be" the change we want to see in our realm of existence. Yet, we still focus on what we do not prefer and make that more relative.

I know this is such a simple concept, yet 'for now' I still struggle with it. Just being honest. How do I "be" my vibrant, healthy, active, wonderful self during the moments when I can't even walk a straight line (due to frequent vertigo spells) and am on the verge of vomiting? How do I "be" that clever, inquiring mind I know myself to be when the simple act of scrolling a computer screen can set off a vertigo spell, or when experiencing the typically quite severe 'brain fog' that follows a spell? I could go on, but I won't, I think you get my drift.

I do trust completely that I will overcome this dis-ease, I am a naturally optimistic person. I have been able to apply what I have absorbed here to other aspects of my life successfully, so not sure what prevents equal success in this area. I would appreciate hearing from others who have any thoughts on at all on the subject, or similar experiences.

The main approaches I have taken so far have been to ignore/make-less-relative my symptoms...so far, frustratingly, I still notice them. Another angle I take, is seeing the experience as a blessing in disguise. And one thing I definitely do appreciate is the fact that I feel dizzy or 'spaced-out' which contributes to the sensation that this reality is really rather dreamy and not altogether 'solid'.

Any thoughts people? Thanks in advance.

Chaol had some pretty epic posts in January; several (I think) could apply to this. [link to ecsys.weebly.com]

But from a personal standpoint, having experienced similar symptoms, I think we might be clinging to them as an important characteristic of identity. Maybe they've been a part of life for so long that despite the negativity, we hold on to them as something familiar. I know this will sound ridiculous when actually experiencing the vertigo (for example), but hopefully locating that sense of self within the disease will ease it up a bit.

Thanks, I'll review the material. Great work on the site by the way. I'd also like to say that I enjoy your posts, in particular your humour. Appreciate your suggestions in the above post too, that's a perspective I have not considered as yet. I have a fresh angle to ponder.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
Good morning guys. There's just too much to say that I've decided to not say much for fear that I'll never stop!
Thanks for the invitation to the party SpawnX, thanks for the Sekhmet visual AC****315, thanks for suggesting a time CatCarel, thanks for the music Marshwiggle (funniest camel dance ever buy so appropriate!) and others who added to the playlist. I really was too excited to sleep. You cannot imagine. I eventually did sleep and I'll just say I made it! Can't say much more than this now but really thank you to everyone for creating this amazing experience for us all to have. How funny we ended up meeting without Chaol's direction. I say we're getting it.
I also have a feeling we'll be hearing from Chaol today too.

So that's it! I promise I tried to make it as short as possible.

Thanks to everyone here because you make it so much easier to understand and provide even more food for thought.

Back to work I go. Have a nice day all!
