I thought I'd better start over reading Chaol's posts and look what I just found: Thread: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking. Everything truly exists.
Like I mention above, When something cannot be fully perceived, it appears infinite.Our language also enables us to perceive these alternate realities,
if we want. One alterate realm is this one.You exist in multiple realms now, at every moment.
You could traverse hundreds of thousands of different possibilities in one day without knowing it.
So most of those bold statements are my understanding (before I met Chaol) of myself as spirit.
Edit: Found a contradiction: Thread: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking. (Page 2)
"The answers" in the universe apply to everyone, not just an infinitesimally small percentage of the population.
We look to scientists for these answers because they're doing things that we don't understand. It is no different than how (in the past) we look to the religious elite for the answers.
But the answers are not found in science or religion or any one particular aspect of the schools and politics that we have created.The answers are universal
and have more to do with consciousness and perception.
I think Chaol believes in universal law.
And this poster asked Chaol how could there not be consciousness....Chaol asked him what consciousness is to him. Here are both their answers: Thread: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking. (Page 2)

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?
