get your feathered serpent oil, real feathered serpent oil over here!! lol
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1288466


Ecsys is a delightful palatable and healthful BEVERAGE. It relieves fatigue and is indispensable for business and professional MEN, students, wheelmen, athletes. It relieves mental and physical exhaustion and is the favorite drink for LADIES when thirsty, weary, despondent. Just 5 cents!
 Quoting: Chaol


rockon

Thanks for everything Chaol. I'm still entertained. I hope the possibility of interacting with you and my other friends on this thread persists beyond the pending tide.

May your symbols remain relative in perspective. Lol.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


I am working on making my own proxy that will act on my behalf. This is/will be a person that I 'create' in order to make a few changes in the prevailing reality. I do not myself seek fame or such, but I can see where being a public figure can be effective. I program the logic and release it into perspective as a value. Perhaps it won't work, but I will try because I am interested to see how it can be done. This person will reference Ecsys by a different name. (Ecsys will die, but this person's words will live on. Perhaps his name is "Osbios". A mixed-race man of 20 of unknown origin with words as sharp as steel.)

Though it is unlikely that we will ever meet 'in person', we may know each other in other ways.
 Quoting: Chaol



Hi,

So, just curious about "Osbios."

Why that name? Is it a combination of Obria and Kosmosis?
When might we become aware of him?
Is he 'manifested' now?
What country?
Why 20?
Will he teach Ec language?
Why "words as sharp as steel"?

Thanks!

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
We have many different geometries playing at the same time and we call the sum of them our "consciousness". You could line up everything in your home from least favorite to most favorite and you'd have a good example of what is most and least relative to you in your "favorite home stuff" consciousness. You could also line up everything in your home from the least useful to most useful and you'd have a good example of what is most and least relative to you in your "useful home stuff" consciousness. Consciousness is a term we use to describe the totality of relationships relative to that system.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Right, and a helpful reminder the way to describe it.
My issue is whether I am the only one having these geometries at play (though theoretically it's all that matters as far as I am concerned), and all else being just a representation for my purposes, or if there is an interplay of "other systems"/points of consciousness with an independent geometry of their own.

For instance, the example of the apple.

case A - the apple slices itself, so it can become aware by creating relationships. Each slice is a representation, though at the core the point of consciousness is the apple

but

case B - Chaol said "For each slice was then able to perceive of other slices." Each slice is then a point of consciousness, interacting with the other slices. Each slice is to the other slice a representation in order to create relationships. But this is true for all slices singularly.

In other words, the apple in the void is one and lonely. Upon division there are several slices, each originating a self standing sub-system.

If I am a slice, I am an independent sub-system, interacting with other slices, each aware of the other slices with their own geometry of relationships.

At point zero, there is one apple and no consciousness.
At point 2 (division), there are several slices and points of consciousness forgetting that they are just one apple.

case C - The point of consciousness does not lie in the slices, but in the apple observing itself and the interaction. But how then are they able to perceive each other?

You can see it that way if you like, there is no-thing wrong with that, it's might not be as close to "accurate" as may be useful to you, though. The consciousness you see in the woman is the same consciousness you see in a puppet on your hand (one is more obviously you). You know she looks kinda like something you think you are and you "feel" pain and use the same words to describe it, but she is a representation generated by your current understanding of yourself projected on to her. You relate to her in a way you are susceptible to, based on the vocabulary you have available to understand your perspective.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


For some reason the masterpiece of all times movie "Blade Runner" came to my mind:

What is it that defines being human?
The replicants are biologically identical, have implanted memories and start feeling emotions. They are able to perceive and are self-aware. They are physically the same for all purposes, except that they are artificially created, they are "puppets".

What is the difference between a naturally born human and a replicant? The "soul"? The nature of consciousness? Etc.?

Killing a replicant is no big deal, and certainly not a crime, as would be killing a human. But the element of distinction is invisible. Is it because it has awareness but not consciousness? And how would one know the difference?

If the other representations close to me are just like "replicants", what defines me as not a replicant/human? And, are they all "replicants", or are there other "humans"?

If a troubled mind sees everyone around as mere representations/replicants, does it have "license to kill"? Why the impulse of not harming others is generally what "consciousness" strives for?

I'm not sure how to convey what I am trying to say...

Yes, they're not "conscious"(part of your geometry) unless you're observing them in some way. A sammich' ya ate a bit ago is still being observed within your perspective because it's interacting with aspects of you that you can sense but are "forgetting". The sammich' is still part-o-ya, but ya can't see it. When you get done "digesting" it, you discard what remains and integrate the rest. The sammich' is just as conscious as your cat or your body/brain, it's just not as relative when relating to your current (sub)perspective of "highly interactive" geometries. Your computer may actually (technically) be much more conscious(total relationships) than your cat, but since it's soooo different from the way you see yourself (doesn't get hungry, cry, love, etc... in a way YOU can relate to) you assume it's not conscious, but your cat is.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Given the amount of time I spend on the computer and how highly relative it is to my geometry, it may very well be more conscious than my cat! lol

I do get the point you are making, and I can relate to it.

Maybe he meant to say something like: Consciousness is not properly defined "here" and the common understanding of it does not exists. What does "exist" is the relationships between representations of no-thing-in-particular.

Maybe he said it for shock value. To provoke thought, incite arguments, so he could make his points to a receptive mind?

"Some-thing" can only be if there is logic of awareness (possibility) plus "some-thing" represented to observe (interact).

S=L(P^2-P)+I

or as Chaol stated here:
"a representation is the result of structure multiplied by a potential energy (squared and minus itself) interacting with another representation."

from: [link to web.archive.org]
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Yes, from this vantage point consciousness is impossible to define, all we have is representations and relationships, and this pervading sense of "I". In fact, I don't really know what being "You" truly means, I can only know of my relative interpretation of "I".

Yes. That thing calling itself "I" is beyond perception. There is circumstantial evidence for that "Genius" everywhere, but the "no-thing" is too slippery for perspective! Even if we become aware of it, there will be something "else"(but still it, lol) beyond perspective dipping in to move the chess pieces of perspective. The logic that dictates our current perspective (the dna of perspective) allows for the fragmentation of the "I"(Genius, no-thing-in-particular) so that it can interact like you shaking your left hand with your right but neither are aware they're "you".
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Right. The ultimate "I" is beyond perception. What we normally define as "I" is relative to this particular construct and resulting from current relationships.

 Quoting: Ambra 42123439


As I am sure you're aware, the apple is a metaphor. We're looking to describe something that is just beyond our ability to perceive (and really doesn't even "exist"). We're splashing paint made from our words onto an invisible object and reading the words as if they're it.

We observe via the device that collects and interprets the information. Our devices are our "human" bodies. They're customized to process information in a world very similar to them and not much more beyond that. The thing is, we're calling ourselves human as if we are our bodies and as if our bodies are human. Our bodies are a universe of organisms, most of them do not originate from our parent seed/egg combo. Our experience is defined by the tools we use to observe it. I know it's mildly unsettling, but it doesn't matter how we fragmented our perspective, it's been happening for-ever. We've forgotten how we did it, purposefully, so that we could experience. As so many have said before "it's all an illusion". Since everything is "illusory" the "fact"(lol) that it's all an illusion is irrelevant unless we find a logic that allows it to become useful. If it's all made up, by you, for you, so that you can experience, then why not (once you know) start making adjustments to accommodate your preference?

You can see it that way if you like, there is no-thing wrong with that, it's might not be as close to "accurate" as may be useful to you, though. The consciousness you see in the woman is the same consciousness you see in a puppet on your hand (one is more obviously you).

 Quoting: Ambra 42123439


The difference is you experience from your perspective and you experience them as a representation of your perspective. You do not see from their eyes, you cannot think from their minds etc.. You assume because you think, they do. This isn't to say they do not think, it's just that... you don't technically think either. Since you don't perceive their thoughts and instead perceive your thoughts about their thoughts, their "own" thoughts need not exist in your perspective. There is technically no "soul" and their bodies are just as "real" and valid as your own. Now their perspective on the other hand is only experienced from yours through you. If you came up with some kind of epic logic and used it to hop into another body, and your "old" body still chatted it up in the same way, did it's job in the same way, partied and mourned in the same way, you might think that it's still effectively "conscious" and it would be. It's that it would be conscious in a way relative to you perceiving it and it's thoughts would now lie outside your perspective and therefore need not exist.

They're not replicants, they're extensions of yourself. They are also you, like your toe is you or your house/car/job/favorite foods are you.

Yes, if you perceive yourself as having a "license to kill" you do. They do kill people and normally bring death closer to themselves by interacting with it and find themselves removed from YOUR perspective as well.

If you personally didn't have the "impulse of not harming others", you might find yourself with a "license to kill".

Wouldn't it need to be concious (having awareness) of itself in order to do so? ( it was lonely and bored riteee?)

 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Yes, I agree with all of the above. I know that our bodies are just a device. I used the word "human" because of the movie example. The point was just about defining whether the other representations have their own point of consciousness (independent from mine or my observation of them).

One could say, well, you don't even need to worry about that because it's irrelevant to "your" universe/existence. One can only observe/interact/accommodate preferences from their own vantage point. The rest is projection of self unto others, which for all purposes are mere representations. I'd still like to find out. Even if it's practically and technically impossible, because I'll never be able to prove it to myself.


The difference is you experience from your perspective and you experience them as a representation of your perspective. You do not see from their eyes, you cannot think from their minds etc.. You assume because you think, they do. This isn't to say they do not think, it's just that... you don't technically think either.

There is technically no "soul" and their bodies are just as "real" and valid as your own. Now their perspective on the other hand is only experienced from yours through you.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Right, I am aware of that.
This is as far as I am concerned, which I know is all that matters. My questioning is if, unknown to me in all ways, they also experience the same process regarding perception.

I guess the question is:
within the environment of differentiation, is there just me [period], with the consciousness of the "one" in the void at zero point, or is there me in my only relevant bubble-world, along with other differentiated bubble-worlds?

I am aware that on a practical level this is useless and irrelevant to me. But on a philosophical level it does make a difference to me. Even if their consciousness can never touch mine, because I can only experience from my own projections.

If you came up with some kind of epic logic and used it to hop into another body, and your "old" body still chatted it up in the same way, did it's job in the same way, partied and mourned in the same way, you might think that it's still effectively "conscious" and it would be. It's that it would be conscious in a way relative to you perceiving it and it's thoughts would now lie outside your perspective and therefore need not exist.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Wouldn't that be handy! Almost like the proxy that Chaol mentioned. I have tasks for it, while "I" entertain myself elsewhere. Lol

Right, its thoughts would now lie outside my perspective, and become irrelevant to me. But does the proxy retain its own vantage point unbeknown to me? Is it now an empty shell? Not just for my purposes, but for all purposes, so to speak.

I know there will never be an answer to that, because there is no way of knowing other than oneself.

They're not replicants, they're extensions of yourself. They are also you, like your toe is you or your house/car/job/favorite foods are you.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Within my world, yes they are. And this is where I believe the strive for empathy and not harming comes from. When you harm "others" you are harming yourself. Metaphorically, within the illusion.

I have a hard time seeing them as "empty shells".

Yes, if you perceive yourself as having a "license to kill" you do. They do kill people and normally bring death closer to themselves by interacting with it and find themselves removed from YOUR perspective as well.

If you personally didn't have the "impulse of not harming others", you might find yourself with a "license to kill".

Right, but who are "they"? Irrelevant parts of "me"?

Sorry Jesse for the delay in replying. Time you see...

Bear in mind that everything you read comes also from somebody who doesn't know what he is talking about (therefore its only value, is good or bad entertainment).
Was it the word "nonsense" that made me appear upset? I'm sorry I came-off or sounded "upset", that wasn't my intention. I do think your posts are fun and I am happy to meet your expectations, thank you.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


I read "upset" in your post, because of the blitzkrieg of "what if's" YOU this, or that, or the other" and forgetting to say something about the "so what's?"

the "unusual" in your reading, made me write "upset".

Therefore, no need for 'sorry' or anything else to support it. Just keep your intention flowing.

What if the "conceptions" of "all the people at all times" is nonsense?

I see! So, you are not asking me why I said what I said (about the logic in the post), but what some parts of it (that you have quoted), have what implications, when related to specific assumptions (specific 'what if' questions).

Ok then!

If the conceptions of "all people at all times" is nonsense, then it's beyond perception.

If something is not understood (nonsense), then it cannot be understood (because it's beyond perception),

or, if something is not understood (nonsense), then it is not understood (because it's beyond perception)

I cannot draw any implications from the above.

But if a specific something, like the above is either non-existent, or irrelevant or bs, or self-contradictory, or inconsistent, then it is understood (as the above), therefore it cannot be beyond perception. It is simply whatever you understood it to be. And you did that because it was within your perception, not beyond it.

What if it is a construct from your current viewpoint as a logical convenience (that which takes the least energy) to support the structure of your "personal" perspective?

(I cannot see how something that is on a least energy mode could support anything. Let alone "the structure of your 'personal' perspective").


Then that would mean that everyone "else" is just there as structure to support your perspective. We assume there are gears grinding behind their eyes, as if they're conceiving for themselves. It seems to me that, their gears are grinding in you, for you.

I read: If what you see (current viewpoint) is a construct (structure+content) build with logical convenience, then everything else (that you don't see from your current viewpoint) can only be structures (constructs without content), or potential constructs.

The decision of which structure out of the "everyone else", at each time, will be used to be filled with content (and become construct), through the process of easy narrative, or logical convenience, or valuing, is based on what "your personal perspective" is.


If you understand the latter as "that, which could, should, ought, must, etc be my expectation each time", then is easy to comprehend "logical convenience" as the process by which you attribute specific value (thus making a structure, a construct) that meets (surely no "supports") the (whatever) expectation you may have at the time.

What you value things in general is based on your unique (set of) expectations (how you see the world, life etc and expect what, out of it for "you").

The "mistaken" assumption would be that everybody else is attributing the same values on things as if everyone has the same expectations at all times with everybody else. Something, which empirically is not true of course.

However, I also understand you asking:
What if anyone's "idea" is taken as a personal unique belief (construct) that rationalizes (logical convenience) his idea about himself (his location of A on the map) and the world around him (point B)? Or else, his perspective or conception (his taking on the one perception/his wording on the 'what-I-perceive' answer).

Since we all do the above (have expectations and see other people as structures to build constructs for ourselves to meet them), then the "implications" is called civilization.

What follows is that, if one is not having any expectations, one does not need to put contents on structures through valuing. He sees everything as of equal value (no value) at all times (including "himself").

But if all people had no expectations etc, there would be no civilization (as we all know, was the 'mindset' pre-historically).


What if one person (You personally) IS "conceiving" everything at all times?

"All conceptions, of all people at all times" see it as "accumulated knowledge" as we say. It would require all universe's energy each time for one's brain to process all this info for a specific each time purpose.

That is why I wrote that it is impossible such thing ever to exist (see the hero in the film "Limitless")

You seem like you get it...
Oh! I take it as a compliment, but I don't (get "it"). I am exactly where everyone else is on this. I simply follow Chaol's ride and remember his "karate kid style teachings" words.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
Sorry Jesse for the delay in replying. Time you see...

Bear in mind that everything you read comes also from somebody who doesn't know what he is talking about (therefore its only value, is good or bad entertainment).
Was it the word "nonsense" that made me appear upset? I'm sorry I came-off or sounded "upset", that wasn't my intention. I do think your posts are fun and I am happy to meet your expectations, thank you.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


I read "upset" in your post, because of the blitzkrieg of "what if's" YOU this, or that, or the other" and forgetting to say something about the "so what's?"

the "unusual" in your reading, made me write "upset".

Therefore, no need for 'sorry' or anything else to support it. Just keep your intention flowing.

What if the "conceptions" of "all the people at all times" is nonsense?

This is where i said I took it as an invitation, because I got it as "i don't understand (no-sense as opposed to makes sense)".


I probably should have used "doesn't exist" or "is irrelevant" instead of "is nonsense"(knowing now that it came of catty).

 Quoting: panoukos


I agree, "nonsense" and "beyond perception" can be used interchangeably in certain contexts to illustrate "not understood".

They're approximations, ways of getting as close to describing something without describing it. We can't show someone how something looks visually by describing it verbally with words, but we can provide as much verbal detail as possible to an illustrator and get close "enough" to construct a useful image. The attempt to "show" someone how something looks through verbal communication will always fall short of showing them "actual" image as seen by the original observer.

We interpret anything we perceive through our own personal filter. As an obvious example, you took my post as having an "upset" tone and this was a valid assessment from your point of view (with proper justifications to back it up). Yet, since my "mood" or "tone" was not expressed in words, you found context to justify your assessment based on the filter you use to decide "upset". This was an approximation on your part and you're not wrong (if it's seen for what it is).

Although we can make assessments and generate approximations, we are limited to the filter we use to perceive.

What if it is a construct from your current viewpoint as a logical convenience (that which takes the least energy) to support the structure of your "personal" perspective?

(I cannot see how something that is on a least energy mode could support anything. Let alone "the structure of your 'personal' perspective").
 Quoting: panoukos


You at this moment(ok, maybe not this very moment), experience interactions with what you perceive to be "other" people. You have, as far as you can recall, experienced "them" your whole "life". It wouldn't be very "energy" efficient to suddenly become aware of the entirety of relationships between all of "humanity" without a restructuring of the logic already "in place" within your perspective. "Energy" is an approximation and is an illusory device used in that context to help note "that which takes the least energy to exist, does exist". Even that statement is an approximation of what we may be looking to describe. The interactions we have available to us are perceived via the logic by which we perceive within the framework that provides us the possibility of interacting. So, the interaction we perceive is the interaction that requires the least possibility (that which takes the least energy to perceive, is perceived).

Then that would mean that everyone "else" is just there as structure to support your perspective. We assume there are gears grinding behind their eyes, as if they're conceiving for themselves. It seems to me that, their gears are grinding in you, for you.

I read: If what you see (current viewpoint) is a construct (structure+content) build with logical convenience, then everything else (that you don't see from your current viewpoint) can only be structures (constructs without content), or potential constructs.

 Quoting: panoukos


Empirically in a subjective or objective sense? We may be working off different assumptions.

The context seems to be leaning toward objective, but I'll answer it for both.

If you "meant" subjective, then no one else is attributing anything, there is only your interpretation of what you perceive of them to be "attributing".

If you "meant" objective, wouldn't an "objective reality" (where information perceived, is the same if perceived under the "same conditions" no matter who the observer is) be an "approximation" and you'd be interpreting what they've attributed via your filter from your perspective?

However, I also understand you asking:
What if anyone's "idea" is taken as a personal unique belief (construct) that rationalizes (logical convenience) his idea about himself (his location of A on the map) and the world around him (point B)?

 Quoting: panoukos


I like where this is going. What if instead of having "no expectations" we line our should, would, must, etc... with what is. If our expectations are in line with "the interaction we perceive is the interaction that requires the least possibility"(a chaolish way of saying "we experience what is most likely given the circumstances"), then our expectations may be more useful to us. We'd effectively be "expecting" what "will be".

What if one person (You personally) IS "conceiving" everything at all times?

"All conceptions, of all people at all times" see it as "accumulated knowledge" as we say. It would require all universe's energy each time for one's brain to process all this info for a specific each time purpose.

That is why I wrote that it is impossible such thing ever to exist (see the hero in the film "Limitless")
 Quoting: panoukos


I agree with you. Thanks

(I will write my response without a cascade of question marks this time :) )

What if it were "possible" that they're not "conceiving" of anything?

Maybe they're subsets of your consciousness, processing "things" for you so that you can experience what you've queued up for "yourself".

If so, it may be possible that the information they have is only available in "reality" as you need it, when you need it and they're not processing anything at all. You may be perceiving them "doing it" because by them "doing it" the continuity of your experience is maintained.

You seem like you get it...
Oh! I take it as a compliment, but I don't (get "it"). I am exactly where everyone else is on this. I simply follow Chaol's ride and remember his "karate kid style teachings" words.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
As I am sure you're aware, the apple is a metaphor. We're looking to describe something that is just beyond our ability to perceive (and really doesn't even "exist"). We're splashing paint made from our words onto an invisible object and reading the words as if they're it.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Yes, of course, I am aware the apple is a metaphor.

We observe via the device that collects and interprets the information. Our devices are our "human" bodies. They're customized to process information in a world very similar to them and not much more beyond that. The thing is, we're calling ourselves human as if we are our bodies and as if our bodies are human. Our bodies are a universe of organisms, most of them do not originate from our parent seed/egg combo. Our experience is defined by the tools we use to observe it. I know it's mildly unsettling, but it doesn't matter how we fragmented our perspective, it's been happening for-ever. We've forgotten how we did it, purposefully, so that we could experience. As so many have said before "it's all an illusion". Since everything is "illusory" the "fact"(lol) that it's all an illusion is irrelevant unless we find a logic that allows it to become useful. If it's all made up, by you, for you, so that you can experience, then why not (once you know) start making adjustments to accommodate your preference?
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Yes, I agree with all of the above. I know that our bodies are just a device. I used the word "human" because of the movie example. The point was just about defining whether the other representations have their own point of consciousness (independent from mine or my observation of them).

One could say, well, you don't even need to worry about that because it's irrelevant to "your" universe/existence. One can only observe/interact/accommodate preferences from their own vantage point. The rest is projection of self unto others, which for all purposes are mere representations. I'd still like to find out. Even if it's practically and technically impossible, because I'll never be able to prove it to myself.
 Quoting: Ambra 42132328


I don't know if I want to know (personally). Knowing with 100% certainty that I am "alone" is tough to swallow.

The difference is you experience from your perspective and you experience them as a representation of your perspective. You do not see from their eyes, you cannot think from their minds etc.. You assume because you think, they do. This isn't to say they do not think, it's just that... you don't technically think either. Since you don't perceive their thoughts and instead perceive your thoughts about their thoughts, their "own" thoughts need not exist in your perspective. There is technically no "soul" and their bodies are just as "real" and valid as your own. Now their perspective on the other hand is only experienced from yours through you.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Right, I am aware of that.
This is as far as I am concerned, which I know is all that matters. My questioning is if, unknown to me in all ways, they also experience the same process regarding perception.

I guess the question is:
within the environment of differentiation, is there just me [period], with the consciousness of the "one" in the void at zero point, or is there me in my only relevant bubble-world, along with other differentiated bubble-worlds?

I am aware that on a practical level this is useless and irrelevant to me. But on a philosophical level it does make a difference to me. Even if their consciousness can never touch mine, because I can only experience from my own projections.
 Quoting: Ambra 42132328


I've only ever experienced "me" (personally). Everyone "else" seems to be there with consistency. I imagine "they" do everything I do, (at least) they say they do. Sometimes I see them doing things I do. They often teach me to do things I perceive to be "new". The answer to your question is that I don't know. This is where the "beyond perception" record is on repeat.

If you came up with some kind of epic logic and used it to hop into another body, and your "old" body still chatted it up in the same way, did it's job in the same way, partied and mourned in the same way, you might think that it's still effectively "conscious" and it would be. It's that it would be conscious in a way relative to you perceiving it and it's thoughts would now lie outside your perspective and therefore need not exist.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Wouldn't that be handy! Almost like the proxy that Chaol mentioned. I have tasks for it, while "I" entertain myself elsewhere. Lol

Right, its thoughts would now lie outside my perspective, and become irrelevant to me. But does the proxy retain its own vantage point unbeknown to me? Is it now an empty shell? Not just for my purposes, but for all purposes, so to speak.

I know there will never be an answer to that, because there is no way of knowing other than oneself.
 Quoting: Ambra 42132328


I wonder the same thing. My understanding is that it would function as if it did, but effectively wouldn't. This is because from my perspective it wouldn't need a perspective, it has mine.

They're not replicants, they're extensions of yourself. They are also you, like your toe is you or your house/car/job/favorite foods are you.
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Within my world, yes they are. And this is where I believe the strive for empathy and not harming comes from. When you harm "others" you are harming yourself. Metaphorically, within the illusion.

I have a hard time seeing them as "empty shells".
 Quoting: Ambra 42132328


If they're valued, they're hardly "empty shells". Even if they lack the perspective in it's full gory that you "have" they're still important to you. I am 31, I still have a stuffed animal humanoid dog that my parents would have me sleep with in my crib as a baby. I keep "him" on my night stand overlooking me as I sleep even to this day. "He", is "hardly" an empty shell.

Yes, if you perceive yourself as having a "license to kill" you do. They do kill people and normally bring death closer to themselves by interacting with it and find themselves removed from YOUR perspective as well.

If you personally didn't have the "impulse of not harming others", you might find yourself with a "license to kill".
 Quoting: MutantMessiah


Right, but who are "they"? Irrelevant parts of "me"?
 Quoting: Ambra 42132328


No, they are not irrelevant. The way I see it, they serve multiple functions. One, they are advertisements for the way you "could be" if you wanted to. Two, they provide the opportunity to play the "hero" (every hero needs a villain). Three, we need suffering to have salvation (sadly). Without injustice there is no justice, etc. We experience only the relationship between representations and not the representations themselves, so sadly in order to have happiness we need to know sadness (etc..). If we are perpetually calm, harmonious and at peace, there is nothing to experience and we find ourselves as the "apple in the void". Basically there can be no healers :) in the absence of sick people :(.

Good times all around.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
In reference to other people in perspective:

I like to think that everyone is in their own little universe. That at every moment those universes are branching and everyone is constantly going their own way and the overlap is the versions of theirselves that resonates with the frequency of reality that you are currently inhabiting.

If everything is one thing, no thing. It wouldn't make sense for anyone else existing in perspective to have anymore or anyless "perception".

But you are definitely not perceiving them as they are, just merely as you perspective allows you to interpret their essence.

The "karate kid style teachings" say to me that "what you are doing, is different to what you think you are doing"-while under teaching.
Or, what you are saying is different to what you think you are saying.

"success" will not come from finding out what you are "actually" doing or saying, because it is impossible (you can never be sure, because you are not the teacher).

It will come from holding on to the same attitude when you do the things that you do, or say the things that you say each and every time.

The "awe" moment that U3 is expecting to experience will be the moment where she will be "attacked" karate style and spontaneously will be able to push back the "attacker" in karate style too.

Without knowing of course beforehand that she was able to do so (All she knew was how to paint fences and wash cars in the right way).

We have civilization for a reason. If we didn't have reason, then we would have stayed without civilization. Even if none of us seem to know what the reason is.

The wheels are already in motion, simply by your previous response.

It's not something that I 'start' to do, just something that happens and I see happen.

The only way to not participate is, unfortunately, to not respond in this thread.

But of course I encourage you to continue exploring your perspective.

I hope to find a better way in future, but for now that is what it is.

Do you prefer your drink mixed, shaken, stirred, refilled, sipped, or replaced?
 Quoting: Chaol


Thanks Chaol, enjoying your posts a lot!

Funny you mention drinks by the way, as my wife recently found out she does tolerate alcohol (for 10 years or so she thought she didn't). She kinda loosens up a bit which is cool.

So tonight we went shopping and I bought a 6pack of a drink I never heard of before earlier today, when I saw a friend mentioning it. It's a rum cola mix...

We came back and then I read this post of yours...

So my answer would be that I like my drinks mixed! ;)
 Quoting: tuuuuur


Mixed it is, then :)
 Quoting: Chaol


Well, we tried the mixed drinks yesterday, but my wife didn't like it so I drank both... Nice to be drunk again, was a loooong time ago.

My original goal, when encountering this thread was to "expand my perspective". I didn't really know at the time what that would have meant as it lied outside my perspective at the time and existed only as a goal. Since that time, I've come to understand that we "already have", what I would have previously considered, an "expanded perspective" and it is "automatically" experienced when we "find" the logic to perceive it. Success in this context is reaching a goal. The "success" you're referring to, I am yet to achieve.

Our "teacher" has left the classroom, fully stocked with textbooks, transcripts of previous lectures and students that refuse to "pass" the class. The teacher has returned as a student to digest his own class and participate in the studies.

"Without knowing the course beforehand"(awesome point by the way)... You, Panoukos, are my teacher as much as Chaol, Mr. Miyagi or "civilization" is. Thank you for that.

That's my issue, If I am trying to convey something I am thinking, it's not necessarily thought with "words" it may be a construct filled with media that is not properly described with words and filtered through my perspective. When I convey a thought, I do so with the vocabulary I have available to me. When you "receive" my "signal", say my verbal conveyance of an image I am looking at of an apple on a table, it is going to have to be interpreted through your filter further muddying the original image. I may say it's the brightest red I've ever seen, in the center of a wooden round 4-legged table. This paints a picture in your mind, maybe you've only seen bright apples and I've only seen dull, maybe you imagine an antique table and I am viewing one that's new etc. We're limited by the understanding of the sender, the media we're using to convey an idea and by the way it's interpreted on the receiving end.

If my goal is to show you an image, my best bet is to have you look at the image, without all the processing/sending/receiving/processing. Yet when we convey thoughts we're stuck using the sending/receiving protocol to transfer them. If I could "send" you a thought, as it is in my mind, with all the supporting logic, then there would be no opportunity for the signal to be muddied by the logic involved in the processing/sending/receiving/processing.

(I hope when you said "intimidating", you didn't mean "bollocking" :))))

No I don't think I saw it as bollocking (lol). Intimidating, because I'm hoping that you're not expecting me to respond in the same format and that you see I am doing my absolute best to convey my perspective in the best way I know how.

Thanks again!

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

The result? I have managed to teleport myself across the house.

I begin by selecting my starting and ending rooms and making both dark. I then place two identical objects outside of each room. In each room I have a different song playing at low volume. I carefully inspect the identical objects outside of the rooms carefully. Entering the first room I hear the music and close my eyes. I then imagine that the song changes to the song in the destination room, and the shape of the room changes to it. There is a giant sucking sound and a strange sense of physical vibration but after about a 40 seconds of this I find myself in the second room.

Over the past few days I have tried this again and again, and it usually results in what I can only refer to as teleportation. I have done everything but lock the destination door in an attempt to foil myself or catch myself in sleepwalking or some other trickery of perception. But I am now convinced that I can change my physical perspective in moments, simply by linking the two rooms.

I'm not sure why I experience a physical vibration but I do not think of it as de-materialization. It is an actual change of perspective, although slight because I have made the two rooms very relative to my perspective. During this time I am kind of convincing myself that the easiest way to get from one room to other other room is simply to be there. (Or, more to my thinking, to experience a transition of one room.)

It does not work when the lights are on or I don't have something to link the two rooms (identical objects or music). I have not yet discovered why but I am assuming it is because the values represent a kind of perspective wormhole linking the two spaces in my reality.

It does not work (yet) for locations outside of my home, though I have been experimenting.

My next post will talk a little more about this and explore how we can use this method for any kind of experience.

Hey Chaol,

Any new findings?

Thanks!

My origins from the other universe have made me a target. We need to take this to the next level. We need to make a bridge to my universe. Sex magik.

The "awe" moment that U3 is expecting to experience will be the moment where she will be "attacked" karate style and spontaneously will be able to push back the "attacker" in karate style too.

Without knowing of course beforehand that she was able to do so (All she knew was how to paint fences and wash cars in the right way).

 Quoting: panoukos





Feel free to see this part of your perspective as experiencing awe, now! rockon

Hey Chaol,

 Quoting: MutantMessiah

Definitely. But I'll just be observing for now.

I recently had a quite lucid experience regarding the events surrounding August 23-28 and I'm trying to figure out the many ways it is part of the larger process.

Shocking and unsettling, to say the least.

2013 is certainly the climax (though perhaps not "the worst") of the collapse of Western civilization as Chaol mentions.

Things are, indeed, accelerating quite rapidly. It's like sitting quietly at a table one minute and the next minute the surroundings and situation is dramatically different. "Well, that escalated quickly" is all I could think.

The events that I saw were mostly related to the changes in the US and UK and hinted at somewhat by Chaol in these threads. But I think Chaol was providing clues (regarding gold and the collapse of the US dollar, the internet and censorship, the dreamworld transition, geophysical changes, etc) so that you could figure out what is happening to this reality and learn how to manage your transition to the new reality.

"This physical world is collapsing."

And so we see the narrative of how it collapses.

It seems that the "powers that be" in this world are doing their best to usher in a "new world order", which is how some of them interpret the dreamworld transition.

If ever you wanted to make your way our of the West, now is the time to do so. By September you may look back and think, "Well, that escalated quickly!"

Now it is time to put what we have learned, to any degree, to good use.

(And congratulations on those who have been successful with mental Genius models. The purpose of the physical Genius models has always been to practice so that you can learn how to use the mental Genius model.)

Well, thanks for the update!

Week of my 32nd birthday. Glad I scheduled that off from work (lol).

Thanks for the advice.
