Re: The Jesus Matrix
Nice thread developing here, I think to have knowledge of both good and evil there needed to be an opposite of the one, the fallen ones, those who broke away. Without Satan Matrix there can be no duality so a purpose was served.

The cylinder is represented by a spherical standing wave, Jacob wrestled upon that ladder, angels acending and decending, DNA...Lightbeings we are.

Outside time, goes back to where I am, does time exist outside consciousness or does consciousness exist outside time?

Whoever finds the glue in the darkness shall find that which is sought.
 Quoting: ICF

gnosticism glorifies evil
and calls it "necessary"

is a shadow necessary for light to exist?
or is the shadow merely revealing something which is blocking the light?

Re: The Jesus Matrix
I was hoping that you would come back to you're posting.

Have you ever really been in the LIGHT?

Have you ever been to the dimension where God is?

Thanks ahead of time for your response.

blessings to all


No I haven't been there, but look forward to it. But like a previous thread, the transition to get there causes some apprehension.

Re: The Jesus Matrix
The floors were like gold, very shiny.

I saw many huge doors and I was taken through a couple of them and shown some things.
One of the things that I saw was angels using some kind of instruments on a panel. They would run their hands over some lights and then a image would appear out of knowwhere in front of the angel and myself. As each image appeared the angel explained them. One of them was the image of the corner of Gods right eye. A tear fell from His eye and in that eye things of the future were shown to me.
(Now I know that many will ask about that, but please understand that if I start saying things, many will not understand.)
The creator is weeping for His children.
Some say prove that. Sure, can.
When ever a person comes to you and tells you they saw God or talked to God, there must be a reason for it and they must be able to document it.
Here is the documenting part. Jer. 9:1.

The reason I eat the hidden manna that I talk about from time to time to those who do talk with me; is not for me, but for all. The bible does have a code by the way, but not the "bible code" stuff that is flying around.
That code was shown to me, and how to dig it out to share with others. I guess you could say, that is the connection proof because of what I point out in scripture.
I will be teaching this sunday to one of the churches that have called me back. The first time I was there, about 4 week ago, I taught from 11:00 am until 1:20 pm. They were hungry and this time from what I hear, there will be lot more people there. I hope so.
What I shared with them is what I am so poorly trying to do on this thread. That LIGHT is real, and if you can get to that LIGHT, you will understand much more about your life and death. That LIGHT is Christ.

I will wait to go on to see if anyone is interested.

Blessings to all

Two questions for you.

If our spirits can function in realms outside of the mere body, give an example. I believe that there are some metaphysical instances, though they have never been "proven". But if you can give an example that can be repeated with success I will agree with you. Near death or death experiences are not counted because you leave this realm at or near death.

Re: The Jesus Matrix
There are no labels in the infinte, Gnostic means nothing to me.

Talked last evening about the parable of the prodical son,

Involution is the descent of spirit into matter and evolution is the ascent of spirit therefrom. The story of the prodigal son is a symbolic allegory describing this very same journey of going out into the far country and the conscious, intentional return to the place, the home, from where one started. Spirit-matter or life-appearance are the two points of living purpose.


NOTE: Everything in the Universe is a product of the consciousness of SOURCE and as such nothing can exist outside of Source or be separate from Source. The perception of separation from Source experienced by humans in the physical realm is just that - an illusory perception for the purpose of experience. The so called re-connection with Source at physical death is simply a return back to a state of full consciousness. Full consciousness a state BLISS.

Bring the upwelling and mergence to source, release fear, become unhindered light, travel

Re: The Jesus Matrix
I‘ve been here a while, like 4 or 5 years and thought I would finally register.

Before I get to topic, let me brief you on me. I’ve been around, and have seen and done things that would blush most. I have a degree in engineering. Married with children. Once was lost, and spent a lot of time and energy looking for “Truth”. Nuff said.

Now the topic.

Being a Christian, I am commanded to go out and spread the good news. Being of a scientific mind, I will try to sew seed scientifically. Without being dogmatic, the way I see our “realm” is this.

We actually live in a “Matrix”. We move around in this dimension like the ones in the movie, oblivious to reality. Few realize that all we are, are particles composed of opposite charges. Energy bound up in a sub-atomic, cosmic dance. Scientists have no idea of this “force” holding our reality together. Like the movie, our reality is flawed. We are unwinding. Slaves to entropy.
Trapped.
Our corruption is not compatible with the creator. His nature will not allow corruption. This is why we are stuck here. We are here not of our own choice (that choice was made for us long ago) but we are here none the less. Being here we are “infected with it’s stench”.

In this realm, we have three dimensions that we observe. We are also told that “time” is the 4th D. God, being out of our restrictions, sees our 4 D’s as one lump. Beginning to end, and all in between. Imagine your life as a cylinder, with your birth and death as each end of this cylinder.
Now imagine God seeing all of the universe from beginning to end, outside our reality as a cylinder held in His hand.

More later. We will discuss how the creator has fixed our "program" of we allow it.

Re: The Jesus Matrix
The OP is speaking of the PHI or Christ Grid which is a real deal...based in science, not some voodoo woowoo theory.

[link to www.akasha.de]



and...

"As far as my research goes, I found that the grids were born at the moment of the Big Bang — at the time that the Void was actually preparing for the birth of the physical universe.

When we speak about the Grid, many of us are reminded of what has been depicted in some books: a matrix of angular energy lines extended above our planet. Although this representation is accurate, there is far more to the Grid than this.

Grids are actually fractal and holographic. They span all of Creation, including its many dimensional levels. They are not just on Earth, but correspond to the entire Physical Universe. The Physical Universe does not exist without these Grids.

The Grids appropriately distribute the life-force energy, provide the templates needed for material Creation, and much more. They are not inanimate, but are a blueprint of Consciousness itself, expressed in harmonic form.

representation of Christ Grid

[link to www.ka-gold-jewelry.com]

Sacred Geometry is the expression of geometry related to the evolution of Consciousness: mind, body, and spirit in geometric terms. True Sacred Geometry is not just about static, angular forms. It is organic and living, and in constant evolution/transcendence or devolution/materialization, ascending or descending from one form to another.

So the Grid of the planet is an actual geometric and energetic expression of the principles of Creation that can serve as a bridge between our planet's physical and energetic manifestations.

On Planet Earth, blueprints and templates for construction and purpose of existence are needed if the smallest particle, element, or compound is to congeal and materialize. The blueprint and template for our planet is the Grid itself.

The Grid serves as a guide or blueprint around which muons, quarks, positrons, electron, atoms, and, finally, compounds organize. The Grid ensures proper distribution and alignment of the needed elemental components, which are the building blocks for Creation. It also supplies the proper distribution and alignment of life-force energy and the many frequencies needed to maintain an effective energetic phase relationship of the planet's frequency spectrum.

So a stratification of Grid templates is needed for any element to form. This stratification occurs from spirit to the etheric, to the electrical, to the gaseous, fluid, and denser materials. Consciousness moves through varying gradations of density in order to affect each level, from the most sublime to the most dense.

An organizing Grid is needed for each of the 108 elements in the periodic table in order to maintain order and functionality in the atomic configuration. Without a Grid template, atomic configuration would soon lose its ability to maintain self-organization. Likewise, a Grid is needed for every species of bacteria, fungus, plant, insect, animal, and mammal."

Let's look at the electron diffraction pattern in elements such as beryl and salt:

[link to www.floweroflife.org]

(intricate and beautiful!)

"In these two photos, we can see the atoms stretched across the Grid in an organized fashion. These round electrons line up to form a mandala pattern, just like a platonic solid or a combination of platonic solids.

The planetary Grid is like a garden "trellis." The garden trellis guides vines and other plants to stretch and grow out and up across the latticework in a certain "shape." The two principal elements of a Grid are the latticework and the fabric. Both have qualities or characteristics.

We could call the latticework the masculine aspect and the fabric the feminine. Both work harmoniously with each other to integrate the diversity of life. This is similar to the metal ribs and the waterproof fabric of an umbrella. The metal structure allows for the fabric to be stretched across it so its full functionality can be expressed.

With human beings, can draw a similar analogy. As spiritual beings in a human body, our spiritual aspect is born of a fabric that is so all-encompassing and holographic that it is literally connected with and spans all life and all of Creation.

To place the immenseness of all that into a physical body means that we have to fold up the vast umbrella of our being into a kind of butterfly cocoon and temporarily close it, awaiting the time when we unfurl our fabric and remember who we truly are. Nested and folded within all of us is an infinite expanse of fractal and holographic fabric of tremendous interconnection with all of Creation.

So the Christ Consciousness Grid is the planet's version of this umbrella analogy: a fully opened fabric of Creation that keeps us connected to our origins and stimulates us to evolve forward into reunification. Consciousness Grids hold the memory of cosmic interconnectedness, thus stimulating self-actualization for those who attune to them."

Our Changing Universe


We know that planet Earth is rapidly heating up for an endless number of reasons, the end result of which cannot be altered. But now we find that our neighboring planet Mars is also heating up. Mars is the planet we most read and hear about in terms of exploration, matching sacred geometry, prophecy and science fiction, with possible alien connections to the human experiment on Earth. As our program evolves, there will be endless clues to ponder that tell us it's more than planet Earth that is shifting, but so is the universe and reality as we are experiencing it from this tiny dot on the universal grid.

HEX

Hex (Discworld)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hex is an elaborate, Heath Robinson/Rube Goldberg-esque, magic-powered computer housed at Unseen University (UU) in the city of Ankh-Morpork, in author Terry Pratchett's Discworld series.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.
Hex is a computer unlike any other the Disc has ever seen (which is not particularly hard since all other 'computers' on the Disc consist of druidic stone circles). Hex runs and evolves under the watchful eyes of apprentice wizard Ponder Stibbons, who becomes the IT manager at UU because he's the only one who understands what he's talking about.



[edit] Evolution
Hex has its origins in a device that briefly appeared in Soul Music, created by student wizard Skazz in the High Energy Magic building. In this form it was simply a complex network of glass tubes, containing ants. The wizards could then use punch cards to control which tubes the ants could crawl through, enabling it to perform simple mathematical functions.

By the time of Interesting Times Hex had become a lot more complex, and was constantly reinventing itself. Part of it is now clockwork, which interfaces with the ant-farm via a paternoster the ants can ride on that turns a significant cogwheel. Its main purposes were to analyse spells, to see if there were simpler "meta-spells" underlying them, and to help Stibbons with his study of "invisible writings", by running the spells used to bring the writings into existence (these spells must be cast rapidly, and each one can only be used once before the universe notices they shouldn't work). In other words, data compression and information retrieval.

In Hogfather Hex contained several things that nobody remembered installing, and was asking about electricity. It was at around this time that the wizards become concerned that it may be trying to become something they don't understand.

By The Science of Discworld Hex was capable of "once and future computing"; increasing its abilities simply by deducing that the required processing power would exist eventually. Presumably this requires a high expenditure of magic, as it has not been mentioned again. This virtual memory appeared as translucent silver towers superimposed onto the real Hex. Hex was sufficiently intelligent by this time not to tell the wizards what it was doing, in case it worried them.

By the time of The Science of Discworld II: The Globe Stibbons had hooked it up to the University's clacks tower, and it worked out all the codes, meaning the University can now use the clacks for free, and has the Disc's first modem. (The legal issues have been carefully considered by Archchancellor Mustrum Ridcully, who concluded that no-one was going to find out so they may as well do as they please.)

In The Art of Discworld, Pratchett explains that "the wizards invented something sufficiently computerlike that computerness entered into it".


[edit] Description
Currently, Hex is activated by initializing the GBL, which Stibbons reluctantly admits means "pulling the Great Big Lever" (similar to the Internet slang BRS (Big Red Switch)). This releases millions of ants into a much more complex network of glass tubes that makes up the bulk of Hex, hence the sticker on Hex that reads Anthill inside, a pun on Intel’s ad slogan Intel Inside. Hex "thinks" by controlling which tubes the ants can crawl through, thus allowing it to perform increasingly complex computations if enough ants are provided (i.e. if there are enough bugs in the system). This is a reference to Douglas Hofstadter's Gödel, Escher, Bach, in which there exists a sentient ant colony, with the ants acting as neurons. Hex can now be given input through a huge wooden keyboard, in analogue writing by means of a complicated mechanical eye designed by Hex itself, or vocally through an old hearing trumpet, and gives output by means of a quill on a hinged lever. It is all powered by a waterwheel covered in male sheep skulls (in other words, RAM). When it is particularly busy, an hourglass comes down on a spring - another sideways reference to Windows. Another apparently important feature is an aquarium, so the operator has something to watch when Hex is working (screensaver). Hex's long-term memory storage is a massive beehive contained in the next room; the presence of the bees makes this secure memory, because attempting to tamper with it would result in being stung to death.

There is also a mouse that has built its nest in the middle of Hex. It doesn't seem to do anything, but Hex stops working if it is removed. Hex also stops working (with the error message "Mine! Waah!") if the FTB (Fluffy Teddy Bear, a gift from the Hogfather, whom Hex believes in, having been instructed to do so) is removed. Stibbons is concerned by these signs that Hex might be alive, but insists that it only thinks it is.

Hex can apparently be shut down completely by means of a Big Red Lever. This seems to worry it.

Ponder Stibbons has connected Hex to the Unseen University's clacks tower giving it the equivalent of an internet connection. It has since cracked the system allowing the wizards to send clacks for free. Whether or not this is actually legal is a question the faculty is carefully not asking.

Oddly, The Science of Discworld puts the name Hex in small capital letters, hex, that are the same type as when Death speaks. In The Science of Discworld II: The Globe, Hex is written as it is here.

According to The Science of Discworld III: Darwin's Watch, another Hex-like machine has been invented by the smaller magical university of Braseneck College. This is much simpler than the original, however; according to Stibbons, Hex is technically a Very Big Thing, while the Braseneck device is barely a Quite Big Thing (the next step up would be a Great Big Thing, every particle of the universe being modelled within it; apparently these terms are quite exact, as when the Lecturer in Recent Runes postulated that the Braseneck wizards would try and build an Even Bigger Thing, Ponder Stibbons corrected him. Apparently a Very Big Thing is capable of pushing boundaries twice as big up to three times as far as a Quite Big Thing).

Hex can be seen as a reversal of Arthur C. Clarke's Third Law, which states that "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic". Hex, as apparently the most advanced form of magic on the Discworld, has now become effectively indistinguishable from technology.


[edit] Inspiration
The inspiration for Hex, which evolves through seemingly unexplainable upgrades like extra cheese, a CWL (Clothes Wringer from the Laundry, for crunching numbers and other things) the FTB protocol (Fluffy Teddy Bear) and "small religious pictures" (icons), came from Pratchett's own early experiments with unfathomable upgrades on his ZX-81.

The name is a play on the multiple meanings of the word "hex"; a hex can be a "magical spell" and also an abbreviation of "hexadecimal". It may also be a play on HAL 9000, or on TLAs in general.

In 2001, a new SGI Origin 2800 supercomputer was installed as part of the University of Leicester's Centre for Mathematical Modelling. With Terry Pratchett's blessing, the new machine was named HEX after the computer in the Discworld novels.


[edit] Quotes / Error messages
++?????++ Out of Cheese Error. Redo From Start.
Mr. Jelly! Mr. Jelly! Error at Address Number 6, Treacle Mine Road.
Melon melon melon
+++Wahhhhhhh! Mine!+++
+++ Divide By Cucumber Error. Please Reinstall Universe And Reboot +++
N.B. Please do not actually try to reboot the universe. This error means that Hex detected something not possible even by the standards of the Discworld. It references to the impossibility to divide by 0 which is not possible in the real world.

Hex's messages are often delimited by the sequence +++, which recalls the escape sequence in the Hayes command set, a standard used in modems.

"REDO FROM START" is the somewhat unhelpful error message produced by the BASIC interpreter in many early home computers when non-numeric characters were entered in response to a prompt for numerical input.

Alpha Auriga

In India it also was sacred as Brahma Ridaya, the "Heart of Brahma".
It was the Akkadian Dil-gan I-ku, the "Messenger of Light", and Dil-gan Babill, the "Patron star of Babylon",
One Akkadian cuneiform inscription, supposed to refer to Capella, is rendered by Jensen Askar, the "Tempest God"; and the Tablet of the Thirty Stars bears the synonymous Ma-a-tu; all this well accounting for its subsequent character in classical times.

The ancient Peruvians identifying this star with Colca, the Shepherd's Star as was the title in Mediterranean countries and with English poets.
