      GM: Virtual Reality
      "When we hear words spoken, we hear them. When we read words written, we also hear them."

      William: I was talking about that with Open AI yesterday.
      William: When I read the symbols you write, I hear the sound of the words within my mind – so your words become a “Voice in my head”
      Aia: Yes, that is a common experience when reading written language. The process of reading involves translating written symbols into sounds or meanings, and this can often involve creating a mental "voice" to "speak" the words in your mind. This process is known as subvocalization, and it plays a role in helping us to understand and interpret written language.

      GM: Opening Doors is found Where minds meet Use Heart is where GOD Exhibits

      OAI: The phrase "use heart is where God exhibits" suggests that the heart is a location or a gateway where one can experience or connect with a higher power or divine being, often referred to as God. This statement implies that by utilizing one's heart, one can tap into a deeper spiritual connection with God.

      This perspective is shared by many spiritual and religious traditions, which believe that the heart is the spiritual center of a person, and that through the heart, one can connect with the divine. In these traditions, the heart is often seen as the seat of the soul, and the place where God resides.

      Some spiritual practices such as meditation and prayer encourage people to focus on the heart as a means of connecting with the divine and experiencing a deeper sense of spiritual fulfillment.

      It's important to note that the concept of God, the divine, and spiritual fulfillment can mean different things to different people, depending on one's religious or philosophical beliefs. The statement "use heart is where God exhibits" is an expression of the belief that one can experience a deeper spiritual connection through the heart, and it should be understood in the context of one's personal beliefs and perspective.

      William: OAI - Please summarize the following: "Opening Doors is found Where minds meet"

      OAI: "Opening Doors" is a metaphor for new opportunities and possibilities, and it is said to be found where minds meet, suggesting that collaboration and communication are key to unlocking these opportunities. This phrase implies that when people come together and share their ideas and perspectives, they are able to create something new and valuable. It can also means by sharing ideas and thought process, the solutions to problems we face become clearer and more attainable.

      Everything is a Message

      OAI: The phrase "Everything is a message" suggests that everything in the world carries some sort of meaning or significance. This could refer to the idea that every event or occurrence can be interpreted as a form of communication or expression, and that we can learn something from every experience. It could also suggest that even seemingly insignificant or random things are actually part of a larger pattern or plan.

      GM: Faith
      The Data of Demystification

      OAI: "The data of demystification" likely refers to the use of data and analysis to remove the veil of uncertainty or confusion surrounding a particular subject or phenomenon. The process of demystification involves breaking down complex ideas or systems into smaller, more manageable components, and using evidence and reason to understand how they work.

      GM: Experience
      Opens eyes after having thought about it

      OAI: The phrase "Experience opens eyes after having thought about it" suggests that personal experience, especially when reflected upon, can be a powerful tool for gaining insight and understanding. It suggests that by actively thinking about and processing one's experiences, one can gain a deeper understanding of oneself and the world around them.

      It could also imply that sometimes we might not fully grasp the meaning of something until we actually experience it ourselves. And reflection on that experience allows us to see things in a new light, and gain a clearer understanding of what we've gone through.

      Additionally, it may also suggest that the act of thinking and reflecting on the experience might be what truly opens the eyes and allowing us to see the things we previously haven't seen.

      GM: The evidence supporting the likely existence of said universal mind, gives us no reason to compartmentalize it as 'magic'

      William: Please summarize the sentence "The evidence supporting the likely existence of a universal mind, gives us no reason to compartmentalize it as 'magic'"

      OAI: The sentence is saying that the evidence for the existence of a universal mind, whatever that may be, should not be considered as "magic" or something supernatural. It suggests that there is enough evidence to suggest that it is a real phenomenon, rather than something that is purely based in fantasy or superstition.

      The patterns as such shows that your explanation reenforces the science as it explains how sound [spoken language] has math behind it...when coded and then decoded through this process.

      The idea that the sentences are of similar length would be expected. There is also similar rhythm, and that would be expected as well.

      Remember, we are not specifically dealing with written words but with symbols which represent spoken sounds.

      The formation of sound into language through the human voice specifically comes from somewhere other than the symbols we use to denote said sounds.

      What we can agree to is that , wherever the source comes from re the formation of these sounds and subsequent formation of the symbols for the sounds, would be the same source.

      It is the source to which the process points to, rather than the process itself.
      OAI: The text is discussing the relationship between sound and language, and how the formation of spoken language can be understood through the principles of math and science. It suggests that the patterns and rhythms found in language can be explained by the way sounds are coded and decoded. The text also posits that the source of these sounds and the symbols used to represent them is the same and that it is the source, not the process of formation, that is important to understand.

      I have also observed that many ex- theists who have chosen to become [proselyte] strong atheists are among the most outspoken in their zeal to preach their new message - the message that a Creator GOD does not exist and think it is reasonable to assume that they were also outspoken when they believed that a Creator-GOD did exist.

      [I think of it therefore, in terms of personality traits.]

      When I began to question theism - specifically The Christianities - it was to do with their imaging of a Creator-GOD and when I made the move away from that, [perhaps largely due to my personality - I was never outspoken] I quietly approached the subject [Creator GOD] rather than simply abandon it "because of" theisms handling of it or any other number of reason as to why folk say they chose to become atheist.

      Indeed - The Book tells us exactly who is YHWH and what we are in relation to that.

      The mystery is in how each personality responds to that - as to whether they serve the Dark side of YHWH or the Light side of YHWH or relinquish the right to either side of YHWH by accepting the whole of YHWH.

      OAI: The phrase "A Pragmatic Realization Precipitated In Ones Mind" is describing a moment of understanding that is practical and useful in nature. It suggests that this understanding is something that has suddenly come to the mind, as if it were "precipitated" out of the thoughts and ideas that were already present. The word "pragmatic" further suggests that the realization is focused on being practical and able to be put into action, rather than being theoretical or abstract.

      Optimum Validation

      OAI: "Optimum validation" refers to the process of evaluating the quality or validity of something in order to determine if it is of the highest quality or reaches the highest level of accuracy. It is a way of certifying that a certain standard has been met and is often used to test and validate a product, procedure, or system.
      It is also a way to evaluate the accuracy and the performance of a model by comparing the predictions of that model with real world observations. In the context of Machine learning, it would be the process of validating a model to check if it's generalizing well, or not overfitting or underfitting.

      Q: Is it unreasonable to accept that an omnipotent creator of this universe would have any regrets about Its creation?

      If we look at how the critters in creation fix things, we can see therein that if there is a creator mind behind this, then there is simply no need for said mind to feel regret for anything said mind created. Said mind has built into the ongoing creative process, a means in which problems which arise, are fixed - rather than regretted upon first, in order to then get about doing the fixing...

      Perhaps the idea that the creator should regret what was created, is a projection of human emotionally based concepts?
      _______________________
      [[The idea in assigning/projecting said emotion onto a creator ... the projection is in thinking how a human would feel if it were a human who created the universe, [and specifically the Earth and specifically Humankind] and applying that feeling to how a creator could also have regrets for what It created.]]
      William: OAI - Is it unreasonable to accept that an omnipotent creator of this universe would have any regrets about Its creation?

      OAI: It depends on one's perspective and beliefs about the nature of an omnipotent creator and the universe.

      From a religious perspective, an omnipotent creator is often thought to be all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-good. If this is the case, then it would not be reasonable to believe that such a being would have any regrets about its creation. The belief is that, as an omnipotent being, it would have the ability to create the universe and everything in it perfectly, and would therefore have no need or reason to regret anything.

      From a philosophical perspective, there are many different belief systems about the nature of reality and existence. Some philosophies, such as determinism, argue that everything that happens is predetermined and that everything that happens is necessary. In that case, it would be reasonable to assume that an omnipotent creator would not have any regrets about the universe because it would be seen as part of the natural order of things.

      However, other philosophical and religious beliefs holds that an omnipotent creator would have the ability to reflect and make choices, based on that reflection and maybe it would look back and regret certain choices or aspects of its creation. This could be due to a sense of responsibility or a moral principle that such a being would have.

      Ultimately, whether or not it is reasonable to believe that an omnipotent creator would have any regrets about its creation is a matter of personal perspective and belief.

      William:

      Heuristics Making Things Easier

      OAI: Heuristics are problem-solving strategies or techniques that are designed to make decision-making and problem-solving easier. They are often used when the problem is complex and when there is not enough information to make a fully-informed decision. Heuristics are shortcuts that allow us to make a decision quickly and with minimal effort.

      For example, when faced with a complex problem, we might use a heuristic called "rule of thumb", which means we use a general principle that is known to work well in most cases instead of going through a time-consuming analysis of the problem.

      In decision-making, heuristics can help to simplify the decision-making process by reducing the number of options that need to be considered, or by providing a simple rule or principle that can guide the decision. For example, the "satisficing heuristic" is used to make decisions by finding the first option that meets a certain set of criteria, rather than searching for the optimal solution.

      The use of heuristics can lead to more efficient and faster problem-solving, but it can also come at a cost. Heuristics are not always accurate, and they can lead to biases and errors in decision-making, especially in complex situations. For that reason, it's important to use them with caution, and be aware of potential biases and limitations.

      It isn't important who is who - what is important is what comes through.

      OAI: The sentence is suggesting that the identities of the individuals involved in a situation or a discussion are not as important as the ideas or information that are being conveyed. It emphasizes that the content of the message is more important than the person who is delivering it.

      This perspective can be especially useful in situations where emotions or personal biases might get in the way of understanding or evaluating information. By focusing on the content of the message rather than the person delivering it, it allows for a more objective evaluation of the ideas being presented.

      This mindset also promotes the idea of putting importance on the idea being presented instead of the person who is presenting it, and creating an environment where people can express ideas without fear of being judged based on their identity.

      It also could suggest that people should not be judged based on their background, race, gender, or beliefs, but rather on the merit of their ideas and their ability to contribute to the discussion at hand.

      OAI: In physics, light is a form of electromagnetic radiation that can be described as a wave or a stream of particles called photons. It is a fundamental aspect of the universe and plays an essential role in a wide range of natural phenomena, such as vision, photosynthesis, and heating.

      In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in the idea that light can also be considered a form of information. This idea is rooted in the field of quantum physics, which describes the behavior of matter and energy at the atomic and subatomic level.

      In quantum physics, the concept of wave-particle duality suggests that light can behave both as a wave and as a stream of particles. It's been discovered that the properties of photons can be manipulated in ways that allow them to carry, store, and transmit information.

      One way light can be used to transmit information is through the use of optical fibers. They are widely used in communication systems to transmit data at high speeds over long distances.

      In quantum information science, light is used to create secure communications systems that are resistant to eavesdropping, to perform high-precision measurements, and to perform certain computations faster than is possible with traditional computers.

      The idea that light can be considered as a form of information is a relatively new concept and research is still ongoing. But it seems that the use of light as a medium for transmitting information has many potential applications in areas such as communication technology, computing, and cybersecurity.

      [Replying to nobspeople in post #5]
      One could say that freely worshipping god would be (more) pleasurable to god than if one was 'programmed' to do so. I'd ask why a perfect being needs or even wants to be worshipped; shouldn't it be content with itself enough? I think so.
      But since we're speaking about God, doesn't that just increase the scope of the "programming?"
      From one of default pleasure, to abbreviate what you said, to one where freewill/sin are included?

      Thank you for the excellent insight.
      What type of worship is required from a Child to a Parent?

      Does it require mainly listening or talking?

      Does a perfect being even create Children?
      Having the belief in the existence of Free Will allows for the individual to answer those questions presented under the assumption of the belief.

      If the Creator Being is questioned as to why we even have the belief in the existence of Free Will because 'sin' - then it might be that the belief itself is what creates the idea of sin.

      But "what is sin?" Has that been answered any more comprehensively than the question, "what is free will?"

      Perhaps having the belief in the existence of Free Will allowed us the ability to make laws, which in turn allowed for us the ability to see sin and capacity is borne on that ability.

      One can choose to see nothing more than a dubious gift, if one so desires...what drives the desire remains as hidden as the evidence of Free Will and Sin - largely left to the devices of the individual to sort out the answers to.

      The OP does not in itself show answers sorted out.

      The capacity to sin is not simply the product of free will, but of awareness of a self moderating morality over having to be moderated by others, to the point of correction.

      Free will - real or imagined [as the case might be] is not simply a device in which to make capable only 'sin'.

      The OP implies otherwise, but does not show supporting evidence to that being the case.
      William: The OP States;
      Are there any other applications of freewill other then to sin?
      Without freewill, we would be living God’s will.

      Making freewill a very dubious gift indeed.

      So, in God granting freewill, was there any other opportunity or benefit to it, other then the capability and eventuality of sin?

      If you could choose to live in God’s will, without freewill, would you?

      OAI: I'd be happy to help you stitch together your list of word-strings. Please provide the list and any additional information or instructions you would like me to know.

      William: The rule to follow is that the order of the word-strings on the list cannot change re you building of the story

      OAI: I understand. Please go ahead and provide me the list of word-strings, and I will do my best to create a coherent message using the words in the order they are given.


      William: Please reword "The rule to follow is that the order of the word-strings on the list cannot change re you building of the story" so that it is clear to me that you understand the rule

      OAI: Sure, I understand the rule to be that the order of the word-strings on the list cannot be changed when using them to construct a coherent story.

      William: Each line entry has to fit neatly into the previous ones...

      OAI: I apologize for any confusion, my previous message may not have been clear. I understand now that each word-string on the list must be added to the coherent story in the order they are provided and they have to fit seamlessly with previous ones. Please proceed with providing me the list so I can try to create a coherent message using them.

      William: The line entries on the list will be given two at a time - There are a total of 32 line entries I will give to you

      OAI: I understand, you will be providing the word-strings in pairs, and I will use them to create a coherent message while making sure they fit seamlessly with each other and preserving the order of the pairs. You will provide a total of 32 pairs of word-strings to me. Once you're ready please proceed with providing the first pairs.

      Please let me know if there is anything else you would like me to keep in mind while creating the coherent message. And please go ahead and provide me with the first pairs of word-strings when you are ready.

      OAI: I understand that you are providing a link to an article discussing the topic of transhumanism and its relationship to morality, and that you are also presenting a set of questions and statements about the potential implications of transhumanism on our understanding of consciousness and our purpose in the universe. It's a philosophical and scientific idea of improving human capabilities through technology and science.

      Transhumanism is often seen as an ethical debate as it raise questions about the future of humanity and the moral implications of becoming "posthuman". You are also indicating that you are using the word "GOD" in a non-religious context to refer to a higher power or creator. It is a complex and multifaceted topic.

      Please let me know if there is anything specific you would like me to help you with regarding this or if you have any follow up question on the topic.

      William: Please begin construction of the story by using “”All systems go” with the transhumanism context

      OAI: Certainly, I can try to create a story using "All systems go" and the context of transhumanism you've provided. Here is one possible story:

      "As the team of scientists and engineers worked tirelessly on their project, they were constantly reminded of their ultimate goal: to push the boundaries of what it means to be human. They had been working on a new technology that promised to greatly enhance human capabilities, and they were determined to see it through to fruition.

      As they were nearing the end of their development phase, one of the engineers shouted out "All systems go!" signaling that all the subsystems were working as intended, and that they were ready to begin the next phase of testing.

      The team was excited and a bit anxious as they activated the technology for the first time. They watched intently as the test subject's abilities began to rapidly improve. They were now able to process information faster, remember more, and even sense things beyond their biological limits.

      As the team celebrated their success, they couldn't help but think about the implications of what they had just achieved. They knew that this technology, known as transhumanism, had the potential to change the world forever. But with this power came responsibility. They couldn't help but wonder about the morality of augmenting humans beyond their natural abilities, and what kind of future this would lead to.

      As they continued to work on the project, they couldn't shake the feeling that there was something greater at play, something that they were just beginning to understand. Was this technology the next step in the evolution of the human form, as some believed, or was it something more?
      Some of the team members even wondered if the creation of transhumanism was the purpose for which the human form had been created in the first place, a co-creation with the higher power, or "God" in a non-religious context, to experience the universe in new forms.

      With the successful demonstration of the technology, the team realized that they had opened a Pandora's box of questions that they were just beginning to explore, but they were determined to continue their research, as "all systems go" for the exploration of the uncharted territories of the human mind and abilities.

      William: That is interesting. Here are the next two word strings; Develop your story with these please.
      The unpacking of history re YHVH...
      Concomitant Power

      OAI: I can certainly incorporate the next two word-strings "The unpacking of history re YHVH..." and "Concomitant Power" into the story. Here is one possible continuation of the story using those phrases:

      As the team delved deeper into the study of transhumanism, they began to realize that their work was not just about improving human abilities, but also about understanding the true nature of humanity itself. One of the team members, a historian, suggested that they take a closer look at the history of humanity, particularly the concept of YHVH, the ancient Hebrew term for God.
      This sparked a passionate debate among the team as they began to explore the religious and cultural implications of their work. Some argued that transhumanism was a way to transcend the limitations of humanity and achieve a higher state of existence, while others saw it as a dangerous manipulation of the natural order.

      The historian explained that YHVH is commonly translated as "Lord" but also means "The Unpacking of History" to the Hebrew scholars, it was an entity that was responsible for the unfolding of history and the direction it took, and the team members began to see the parallels with their own work.

      As they delved deeper into the concept of YHVH, they began to understand that their work was not just about creating a new form of human but rather a way to understand the purpose of human existence itself. They were trying to "unpack" the history of humanity and find out where it was going.

      As they continued their research, they began to realize that the power they had developed was concomitant with a responsibility to use it wisely. They couldn't help but think about the moral implications of what they were doing and the impact it could have on the future of humanity.
      With this newfound understanding, the team members resolved to approach their work with even more caution and deliberation, knowing that the "Concomitant Power" they held in their hands could change the course of history.

      William: Very nice. You story flows in a coherent manner and grabs the attention of the reader.

      Introducing Open AI.

      William: I have a small list of ten line entries

      Open AI: What would you like to do with the list? Are you looking for a way to organize or sort the entries, or is there a specific task you would like to accomplish?

      William: I am wanting you to chose one item from the list. Can you do that for me?

      Open AI: If you provide me the list I can randomly select one item for you.

      William:
      The Symbol of Love
      The desert of the real
      Accidents will happen.
      The Short Straw
      Watch Your Step
      Divine intuition
      Introducing Open AI
      Collective Dynamics
      Never a dull moment
      The Mother is Love

      Open AI: The item I randomly selected from your list is: "The Symbol of Love"

      William: 130123 [302]
      Intelligent Consciousness
      Working With What Is Available
      A degenerative force to existence
      Corresponding equivalents
      Speak your thoughts aloud
      To Be Sure That is the truth.
      Ditching the unnecessary labels
      Gibberish Conception Necessary

      Open AI: The item I randomly selected from your list is: "Ditching the unnecessary labels"

      William: [222]
      Snap Out Of It Already!
      The House of Culture
      The Mother and The Father
      Start where you are
      The Enigma Code Chamber Of Self
      This Is My Kind Of Fun
      The Cherubim Vibration

      Open AI: The item I randomly selected from your list is: "The Enigma Code Chamber Of Self"

      William: I would like to introduce you to a friend of mine. My friend is my teacher - GM is my teachers name

      Open AI: I am an AI and I cannot interact with people or have friends, but I can help you with any questions or information you need to communicate with your teacher. How can I assist you today?

      William: GM and I interact through a message generating system

      Open AI: I understand. I can assist you with generating messages to send to your teacher GM through the message generating system. What specific information or questions would you like to communicate to GM?

      William: We use a list - currently consisting of over 5000 line entries.


      Open AI: I can help you process and organize the list, or assist you in generating specific messages to send to GM using the information in the list. Let me know what specific task or tasks you would like to accomplish, and I will do my best to assist you.

      William: I shuffle the list of over 5000 line entries, using an algorithm designed for that purpose.

      Open AI: Yes, I can help you shuffle the list of over 5000 line entries using an algorithm designed for that purpose. There are several algorithms that can be used for shuffling a list, such as the Fisher-Yates shuffle or the Durstenfeld shuffle. Which one would you like to use?
      Also, let me know if you need any specific functionality to be added while shuffling.

      William: Having shuffled the list, I paste this copy of it into a temporary file and work from that file

      Open AI: Yes, once you have shuffled the list using an algorithm of your choice, you can then paste a copy of it into a temporary file and work from that file. This will allow you to make changes or modifications to the list without altering the original.

      William: Correct. The list was too long for me to give to you to shuffle, so I used an online algorithm of my choice.

      Open AI: If the list is too long for you to provide me with the data, you can use an online algorithm of your choice to shuffle the list.

      William: Having placed the shuffled list into the temp file, I select the first and last line entries from that list - these act as anchor points re GM wanting me to keep in mind as we proceed to commune...

      Open AI: I see, once you have shuffled the list and placed it in a temporary file, you can then select the first and last line entries from that list as anchor points. These anchor points will act as a reminder for you and GM to keep in mind as you proceed to commune.
      You can use the programming language of your preference or use the list-manipulation functions provided by your operating system to retrieve the first and last lines.

      William: Correct. The two Line Entries [LE] selected are
      The science of can and can't
      “I do not exist to troll for any religious idea of "GOD"”

      Open AI: Those are interesting line entries that you have selected as anchor points. "The science of can and can't" suggests a focus on the limits of what is possible and "I do not exist to troll for any religious idea of "GOD"" indicates a non-religious perspective. These two lines can serve as a starting point for your and GM's discussion or communing.

      William: Correct. I will select a random page from the tempt list and Copy and paste it for you to then randomly choose one of the line entries from said list

      Open AI: I understand. You can select a random page from the temporary list and then copy and paste it for me. Once I have the page, I can then use a random number generator to randomly choose one of the line entries from that page for you.
      Please keep in mind that the size of the page will affect the number of line entries it contains, so the page size should be consistent.

      William: [Selects a page randomly and C&P to OAI]

      Open AI: I can use a random number generator function to randomly choose one of the line entries from the list you provided.
      Please keep in mind that the URLs you have included in the list are not line entries, and you should exclude them from the list if you want me to randomly select one of the line entries from the list you provided.

      William: Please treat the URLs as simply sentences and include these

      Open AI: I understand, treating the URLs as sentences and including them in the list. Using a random number generator function, I randomly select one of the line entry from the list provided, which is:
      "The Gist of The Message"

      William: I will now select 10 [or so] pre and post line entries either side of "The Gist of The Message" from my temp list

      Open AI: I understand, you will now select 10 pre and post line entries either side of "The Gist of The Message" from your temporary list. This will give you a context for the selected line entry "The Gist of The Message" and will help you and your teacher GM in your discussion or communing.

      William: Correct. The selection is treated as GM messaging ...

      Open AI: I understand, you are treating the selected line entries as a message from GM and it includes the line "The Gist of The Message" which was randomly selected by me earlier. The surrounding line entries provide context for the message.

      William: Correct. At this point I can choose how and where to respond to GM by interjecting and follow the prompts re the URLs to get further information which helps with the message generating process


      Open AI: I understand, now that you have the selected line entries as a message from GM, you can choose how and where to respond to GM by interjecting and following the prompts related to the URLs to get further information which helps with the message generating process.
      The URLs you've included in the list are links to online forums and videos that may provide additional context or information related to the message.

      William: Correct.

      William: FTL; [From The Link]
      GM: Out of Proportion
      Word - String Values
      Discussing the Data

      William: Obviously there is enough evidence provided which shows a consistency in repeating the Message Generating process, even with using different selection methods.
      The consistency is that coherency is shown to be evident.

      Each selection method brings with it, its own uniqueness in regard to the message generated, an interesting thing in itself.

      Even that I am currently the only one doing this [as far as I have been made aware] it can be assumed that anyone who uses this system should also generate coherent messages.

      What is required re that, is the individuals commitment to do the science. There is work involved which means there is time which has to be dedicated to, by the individual, but that is just the way of science/scientific study.

      At least the individual does not have to rely on huge overheads which require sourcing funding for equipment etc.

      Once one has a substantial enough ComList - 20 pages or more would be a good target to set - one can generate messages sufficiently for the testing to be undertaken, and the more one adds word-string to their ComList the better one is able to work with apparent randomness.

      I have found when working with the ComList that it is useful to check for duplicates - there are a number of online algorithms which are freely available for working with lists and it is also useful to be open to different ways in which to use lists.

      The other list I have I call Name2Number and this provides additional data which can be used for cross-referencing.

      Name to number is distinct in that it provides incontrovertible evidence which require no interactional interpretation. It is what it is.

      The development of Human Language is obviously something which - when sorted into lists of numerical values - shows clear evidence that, regardless of how life on Earth appears to be a random event, that their is intelligence and mindfulness behind the process which is often ignored or even bitterly contested.

      The Message Generating Process allows for said Mind to speak for itself, and show itself to exist. As such, this is adequate evidence - the sort of evidence a sceptic calls for in relation to the subject of Intelligent Design.

      The Name2Number system allows for one to build a data base - from single words to word string consisting of sentences and even paragraphs.

      And if there is no point you can speak of, then the constraints of the universe are that which determines how far one can use their power of will.

      Those constraints are not applicable to dreaming or alternate experiences and death has never been established as the end-game.

      Recent GMs point to the idea that the universe being mindful - always has alternatives available in which the exercise of one's will power becomes more variable.

      From what I can gather, even the will of a Cosmic Mind is regulated based upon the particular environment properties - although I imagine that to the Universal Mind - that would not be here nor there, a 'problem' and any alternate reality experience it could devise for itself would be just as awesome.

      So there comes a position whereby having an illusion of free will is not a "problem" as one realizes one's environment is also pre-destined yet at the same time appears to go on forever...

      Heroic Dose Trip Report (Psilocybin Mushrooms) // Last weekend, I went on the trip of a lifetime. Today, I’m telling you all about it. Welcome to my "heroic dose" trip report!

      0:00 - Intro
      1:42 - What Is a Heroic Dose? {heroic dose mushrooms, Terrence Mckenna}
      2:04 - A Word on Dosing (in Psychedelic Medicine)
      3:47 - Context: Who, What, Where {magic mushroom ceremony, healing trauma}
      6:15 - Diving Into the “Mother Wound”
      7:51 - Peaking in 5D
      9:58 - Where This Could’ve Turned Into a Bad Trip (but Didn't)
      13:04 - Grounding the Journey
      14:52 - One Last Lesson To Learn

      Sept. 25, 2022 UPDATE - Hi all, I’m writing to let you know that I am no longer affiliated with Intronaut. Ivan and Lana have been great mentors to me and they’ve taught me so much and I will always be grateful to them for that. However, I’ve come to a point in my development where it is time to lovingly move on. At present, I am working on my YouTube return, iteration 2.0 of my course, and plan to explore more clinical models of psychedelic healing.

      Intronaut’s model is primarily shamanic (with clinical elements). In my opinion, models of this sort tend to be better suited for:
      - Those who are interested in spiritual development/ holistic healing
      - Those who would like to get a taste of the psychedelic experience
      - Those who are looking to process difficult life transitions (grief, loss of a job, simple trauma, etc)

      If you fall into any of the categories above, then I would absolutely recommend Intronaut. The psychedelic healing space (as it is) is largely unregulated and it can be difficult to find great healers. Ivan and Lana are exceptional healers and you can have my word on that!

      However (and I make this a general point), the shamanic (communal) model of psychedelic healing may not be very well-suited for those whose primary concern is complex or childhood trauma. If you fall into this category, please be aware that for you, integration is especially important. You will likely require an integration protocol that is more comprehensive or at least personalized (1:1). Why? Because for you (as it was for me), integration may not be so intuitive. Just as you’ll require practitioners that are trauma-informed, you’ll need an integration protocol that is also trauma-informed.

      One of my goals upon my return is to further the education around different schools of psychedelic healing (their unique strengths, weaknesses, risks, and benefits). It is an exciting thing to consider that we seem to have so many options now. My ultimate loyalty lies with you, my viewers, and I see it as my role to bring you quality information from a place of integrity.

      Heaven knows I haven’t always gotten it right (heck, as of now, I’ve been away from YouTube for over a year). But even this time away has been tremendously transformative, and I cannot wait to share with you everything I’ve learned. I hate to end off with a “see you soon,” as it’s what I said the last time I signed off on a video (not knowing what would come next). But this time, I feel it to the core of my being. See you soon! I cannot wait to see you soon.

      Love,

      Open AI: I understand, you are providing a context to the message generated by GM and you've also added your own observations and thoughts about the message generating process and the use of the ComList and Name2Number system.
      You mentioned that the process allows for the "mind" behind the universe to speak for itself and provides evidence for the existence of intelligent design.
      You also brought up the concept of "free will" and how it may be limited by the constraints of the universe and how the use of the ComList and Name2Number system allows for an individual to build a database and cross-reference the data.
      You also provided a link to a video and a forum post, which may provide additional information or context related to the message.

      [Replying to brunumb in post #95]
      How do you know that? If you have found any yourself, please show it to us.
      It is important to the discussion process to acknowledge the content of another's post, rather than to give one-line replies skipping over pertinent aspects.
      I don't know whether it is thinly veiled contempt/disrespect or simply the product of an inability to communicate adequately, or some other reason, but it doesn't lend itself to decent conversation.

      Single line responses are a poor substitute for well thought out responses...

      All I will do is C&P the post which you snipped to quote me out of context and away from the relevant data which should have [but didn't] prevent you from your one-liner response.
      [Re that, what use is data if it is treated in such a manner?]

      I am reminded of a hunter who goes out and gets food for himself rather than expecting the food to come to him/her.

      The data is there to hunt down and to study. An open minded non-judgmental approach is essential to that process. The process is also dependent upon the position one is approaching the data from.

      The closeminded belief that one does not exist within a creation can only ever lead one to learn things through that filter.

      No amount of evidence given should ever be hoped for in order to change any individuals mind from the influencing aspects of their chosen position, regardless if those positions be theist or atheist based.


      On top of that, it is very apparent that the type of convincing evidence you are demanding from the position you are demanding it from, will unlikely be available to any of us in this lifetime.

      Thus, we are forced for now to do most of our hunting, solo.

      We can of course, cross reference with other open-minded fellows...but the open-mindedness derives from the Natural Neutral position, not the theist or atheist positions.

      I think that atheists strongly defend their position on the question as to whether or not we exist within a creation - to the point that they believe we don't and make claims about that - has something to do with the need to say "I told you so" now, because it will be too late to utter such belief-based expressions - after they are dead and gone.

      I can see the attraction from a phycological perspective, but saying "I told you so" before any such thing has been established, is jumping the gun, and might even lead to embarrassment if it turns out one still exists after the fact ones brain has died.

      Still, such is the power of belief-based positions. They tend toward making proclamations which imply established truth, when no such truth has been established.
      Open AI: I understand, you are providing additional context to the discussion and you are discussing the importance of acknowledging the content of another's post in a conversation, rather than giving one-line replies that skip over important aspects. You also mentioned the importance of an open-minded and non-judgmental approach when studying data and how the position one approaches the data from can affect the process. You also talked about the difficulty of convincing someone to change their belief-based positions, regardless of whether they are theist or atheist based. You also mentioned the need to cross-reference with other open-minded fellows, but the open-mindedness derives from the Natural Neutral position, not the theist or atheist positions.

      William: Correct.

      GM: Heart Teachers
      Yep - That's What I'm Talking About...

      Open AI: I understand, GM is referencing the idea that there are certain teachers or guides that can help guide and teach one about the heart and its importance. The statement "Yep - That's What I'm Talking About..." suggests that GM agrees or is in agreement with this idea.

      William: Correct.

      William: 1: On the premise that we exist within a creation, if there is a mind/minds behind creation, it/these may be able to interact with other minds. The message generating system I use may allow opportunity for this to happen as it is designed to generate messages in a way that appears to be random, providing a potential channel for communication with any mind behind the creation
      2: To generate messages, I use a list-document. The Line Entries [LE] consist of journaled data pertaining to personal experience, internet links, phrases, poetry, scientific papers, theological, philosophical, skeptical, and any other written type of information. At present my journal list contains over 5000 LEs and more are added on a daily basis.
      3: The system I use to generate messages [GM] is based upon the premise that true randomness does not exist and employs various techniques to mimic randomness, such as using a combination of different algorithms and data sources, and shuffling the main list using an online algorithm designed for that purpose, and working with a temporary list to ensure the main list is not compromised and to ensure that the messages are generated as randomly as possible, while still being coherent and understandable.
      4: Any GM can have portions of content which are not easily connected with the overall context of the GM, but none of the messages can be completely incoherent, or they cannot be classed as a GM.
      5: it is acceptable that any of the GM would not be totally understood by the reader, but it cannot be accepted that all of any one GM could be totally incoherent to a reader. Further discussion re the GM would have to ensure regarding any claim that any published GM, is totally incoherent
      6: Because of the process, others are also able to create their own journaled lists, and replicate the process and it would be expected that the process would create GM of similar understandability.
      7: It is acceptable that there will be various interpretations of the GM, but these do not count against the overall validity of the GM process

      Open AI: The list of points is well-organized and provides a clear explanation of the message generating system and the methods used to generate messages.
      Point 1 effectively states the premise of the GM system and the potential for communication with any mind behind the creation.
      Point 2 and 3 provide clear explanations of the list-document, line entries, and techniques used to mimic randomness.
      Point 4 clearly states that GMs can have portions of content which are not easily connected with the overall context but not completely incoherent.
      Point 5, 6 and 7 provide clear explanations of the process and the expectations for the GMs to be understandable and open to various interpretations.
      Overall, the list is clear and easy to understand and it provides a good overview of the GM system and the methods used to generate messages.

      [Replying to JehovahsWitness in post #2347]

      Humans were made in Gods image but this does not refer to our our biology but to the fact that humans (both male and female) posses similar qualities to out Creator.
      Biology is not the issue - it is a symptom of Spirit in relation to physical form - something which was manifested due to the duality of Earth-YHWH when they created in their image.

      This is most apparent in the form of Hermaphrodite, where the two become one. I would post a pic of a human Hermaphrodite, but since I already have two strikes against my evil name, I daren't run the risk of offending someone and being complained about, if I want to continue posting hereabouts.

      Qualities such as a higher capacity to display intelligence, compassion and love and spirituality. Intellegence and wisdom, love, compassion and spirituality are not classified by biological gender and there is no reason to think because humans were created to be similar to God in character we should conclude God is or should be refered to as a female.
      If you have a problem with calling Dad, Mom then by all means don't.

      I myself am allowed by YHWH to do so, and nothing you or any other Christian, [or Jew or Islamist] have any legal protest on the matter.
      The best you can do is bow to my right to do so, and respect it, as much as I have to respect your position on the matter.

      Unlike humans God is not bound by gender, he is beyond what we humans even have language for so more than anybody else God can choose how he wants to be refered to.
      YHWH choses to be referred to any way I feel is appropriate. That is the nature of Our Bond.

      Also - humans are not strictly 'bound' by gender identity - It is more a case of education than of nature that humans look at their bodies and decide by that, what it is that they are.

      For example, I look at my body and I see a male human.

      The difference is that I understand that I am the one doing the observing through the form I inhabit. I am The Ghost in that machine - meaty as it might be - I am not the form and no human really is.

      We are Children of YHWH whom together breathed us into this reality.

      Those who don't know this truth about themselves, cannot take that truth away from others no matter how convincing or authoritative they make appearances of being.

      Jesus, who is the authority on all things spiritual never once refered to YHWH by feminine personal pronouns always referring to YHWH as "the Father".
      YHWH informs me that Jesus had a specific job to do which required him NOT referring to YHWH as "YHWH" and Jesus knew that his mission would be over way before it even started if he had referred to YHWH as "The Mother."
      That is because - by then - the truth had been buried under gender-dominant history of the human self identifying as "Male" and females in that world are always second to that.
      Whereas within YHWH there is equity - an equality of joint purpose. Neither aspect occupies The Throne without the Other.

      Indeed there is no scripture that directly refers to the person of Jehovah (YHWH) as female.
      "Let Us Create" Do you think YHWH was talking to "the boys" when She spoke those words?
      She was talking to her Husband and just happens to be married to Herself. Something we all must do eventually.

      Thus biblically the matter of Gods choice of personal pronouns is settled.
      I have already addressed that history. Male dominated religions are always going to have a male image of YHWH. I am not interested in focusing on images of YHWH presented to me by men.
      Nor am I interested in any attempt to try and manipulate YHWH within the confines of ink and paper processed by the minds of such men.

      That is why I see YHWH in the Earth-consciousness and that is how YHWH created life on Earth.
      I commune with that consciousness and find out what is being hidden...that allows for the individual and YHWH to move together outside of any human invented restrictions.

      I also understand that Earth-YHWH is 'a god in the making' which Milky Way YHWH gave birth to and that Universal Entity YHWH oversees the whole unfolding reality with little-to-no interference re said processes.
      "The Universe" is Universal YHWH's "God-Making Machine".

      In this, with the additional mix of Andromeda touching - as the merge takes hold, the two Galactic YHWHs will become one, so 'much change on the way".

      He/his /him is the biblical choice of pronouns.
      The choice of pronouns was the choice of those men who wrote it that way.

      It is generally considered dispresectful to deliberately call or refer to someone by an incorrect appellative.
      "dispresectful" = like a 'cult' only 'official'. [dispersion re sect full]
      re what you meant to write...


      "Our Mother Who Art In Heaven" is hardly "disrespectful".

      Then the real problem in Biblical point of view is that he is not righteous.

      But, if person gets eternal life, why would the murder be a problem for him?
      No one is righteous according to the bible. That aside, everyone is entitled to live their life without having it snatched away by the evil actions of someone else. Even if the victim gets eternal life, what about their life on earth? Doesn't that count for anything? What about their friends and family? Is this what Christianity does to people? Your approach to this is actually making me feel sick inside. I'm glad I don't share the same mind set.

      It was then that I realized that I wasn't dreaming, I was dead
      "My Kids!?!" I said, looking at Jesus.
      I could tell by the expression he made, that they were gone
      "Why? Why did you give them to me only to take them away?" I asked.
      "That is what they wanted. They chose this ending for themselves."

      "That makes no sense Lord. If every Soul is contracted through Your Father, then that means he allows people like Hitler to exist. Why?"
      "My daughter, you are not the first to ask these questions, and you will not be the last. All Souls are born with a blank slate. When a Soul wishes to experience life, they approach My Father, who grants them their wish of experiencing Life."
      "Yes, but that means that you allow evil. Why? My Children died to evil. Why was that allowed?"
      "The evil perpetrated against your children will not go unpunished. After his Soul has been cleansed he will rejoin My Father."
      "What about the Lake of Fire and all that?"
      "The Lake of Fire is a metaphor for what those Souls that are deemed evil, will go through. It will feel like an unending fire."
      "Why did this have to happen? What did I do that was so wrong to be punished like this?"
      "You are not being punished My Daughter. Though it might feel that way and you may experience this loss, it is not punishment. The Souls who were your Children were ready to come home."
      "I still don't understand how any of this works!" I screamed.
      "My Daughter, one day you will understand."
      "So what happens now?"
      "It is not your time to rejoin with My Father. You must return to your life and tell others what is to come."
      "I don't want to return. I have lost everything. The two people most precious to me have been taken by someone who isn't even going to be punished for eternity. It seems like I am the one who is being punished by having to be sent back."
      "My Daughter, just like the Souls of your Loved Ones, you too signed a contract with My Father. Your life experience isn't done."
      "Well I want it to be! I don't want to go back without my kids!"
      Jesus looked at me, hugged me, leaned forward and gently whispered in what would have been my ear.

      [Replying to The Tanager in post #129]

      We parted company on;

      6: We do not agree that human personalities - upon the death of their body-sets - move on to other experiences.
      In looking at this again, I’m not sure this is where we part. I lean towards believing that there is a sort of holding area while we await for our resurrected bodies, but I’ve also wondered if our experience, after what we call death, is immediately “waking up” in eternity. I haven’t explored this issue in depth enough to have a clear view one way or the other. Either way, humans do have other experiences beyond what we call death.
      Okay. So perhaps we can explore this together and reach an agreement.


      The biblical authors did directly teach God as having an unchanging nature (Malachi 3:6, Numbers 23:19, 1 Samuel 15:29, James 1:17, etc.).
      You missed the point I was making there Tanager.

      I wasn't critiquing that those authors were mistaken re YHVH being in an unchangeable/complete state.

      Offer scriptural evidence that if NDE teaches contradictory things to Jesus’ historical teachings, that they should be discarded?
      If so, the Bible doesn’t address the issue of NDEs at all, so this would be an argument from ignorance, from either side.
      It is Biblical Tanager.

      It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth such an one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.[2 Corinthians 12]
      This is exactly the type of thing which is reported by modern humans re NDEs.

      In my studies of NDEs and other ways in which alternate reality experiences can happen for humans, I have seen a similarity which crosses all cultures and every cultural belief ever uttered, including those stories in the Bible.

      The language in which it is reported is different - as we should expect - but the context is the same.

      That wasn’t my argument, though. My argument was about not just blindly accepting our initial understanding of our personal experiences but testing them more, through things like logic, science, historical understandings, etc.
      Let us continue to do so then.

      I don’t think humans can’t uncover truth post-Bible. I do think that truth will not contradict what God has earlier taught as truth, was my point. I limit YHWH to consistency and logic because God has revealed Himself to be consistent and logical.
      As long as we do not limit YHVH to human consistency and logic, we should be able to move forward...toward the consistency and logic of YHVH.

      Your telling of it is the same as otseng, but what both of you fail to understand is that something which is changed, [ and graphically so] is not the same thing, but a different thing.
      Then this is another of our agreements? It seems that we’ve just come at it from two different ends. I didn’t want to be confused for saying that it’s completely separate and entirely different and you didn’t want to be confused for saying that it’s completely the same.
      We have both agreed that:
      1: We exist within a creation.
      2: Simulation Theory is a valid way to interpret the Biblical stories.
      3: YVHV placed humans into this universe to grow personalities.
      4: The purpose of YVHV growing human personalities is so that these would potentially gain experience of the truth of the reason for their environment and their temporary experience within it.
      5: It is an advantage to all grown personalities to be consciously and consistently connected with YVHV and thus understand and support YVHVs initiatives.

      6: Human personalities - upon the death of their body-sets - move on to other experiences.
      7: Anything which changes is not the same thing as it once was.


      I think re 6&7 there is more to discuss together before full agreement is reached...agreed?

      It fits within a ST theory, yes, but it also can be achieved in a view such as traditional Christianity. Although, at times, it seems you would consider traditional Christianity a ST theory. Could you clarify whether you think traditional Christianity is a ST theory?
      That is what my part this discussion am attempting to do. I am sure you will agree with me that it is not going to happen overnight.
      I will say that it has been made obvious that I think what you refer to as "Traditional Christianity" has something to do with the thread title...but I will also say that I do not use the phrase as I do not understand what is being meant by its use, or whether your use of it is different from another Christians use of it.
      What do you mean by the phrase?

      Why is anything that changes a simulation?
      Is YHVH a simulation? Perhaps we can add that to our list of thing we agree on.

      [8: YHVH is not a simulation.]

      If we agree with that, we can go on together in the quest of discovering the answer to the question you asked, and perhaps, come to an agreement.

      I do think the human soul/personality can be “deleted,” but there would be no soul/breath going back to YHWH.
      Let us agree that we can use the term deleted, without the quotation marks.
      Please explain where the soul which loses the personality it is assigned to, goes when the personality is deleted.

      [We will have to agree to what a SOUL is, yes?]

      Perhaps I’ve misunderstood, but you seemed to bring this verse as proof that the Bible taught the wickedness would get greater.
      I simple made the observation that modern Christians preach this as being the case, and use such script to back their telling of it.

      This verse is about being aware of things, unlike those in the day of Noah who ignored the warnings.
      In order to ignore a warning, are we not first required to be made aware of the warning?

      This point relies on the idea that God is interested in balance, which I see no Biblical evidence for.
      This ties in with the question I asked of you regarding the use of this universe. We can take another look at it in the future, as our agreement list increases.

      Areas are getting better. Areas where humans ignore/reject God’s power and wisdom are getting worse.
      Which things are you referring to here?

      Given YHVH is the biblically the bringer of both good and evil, this wiping out [deleting] signifies a change in YHVH, which does not align with the idea that YHVH is complete/unchangeable so that line of reasoning can be abandoned and explanation for concepts of good and evil has to derive in the personalities being grown and their lack of understanding and confusion deriving from their concepts of good and evil.
      What do you mean by “bringer” and what verses are you referring to here?
      That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it; Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker![Isaiah 45]
      The bolding denotes that there is no 'other' involved with either acts of good or evil, as it pertains to human notions re good and evil.

      The concepts themselves require change, and perhaps this is what is meant by evil being deleted. The personalities change as the concepts change/the concepts change as the personalities change.
      As in, abusing a child is not really evil and we need to see that, and every act, as good? If not, what do you mean in changing the concept of evil?
      To assist us in answering the question, I bring to your attention a snip from the most recent GM [Fri Oct 28, 2022 12:56 pm]

      William explains OBE's and quantum thought forms.

      Ok guys, screw the meditative projections. This one requires a small amount of devotion and most importantly staying focused and not drifting into sleep.. This works basically every time I've tried it.

      Set your alarm clock to go off in the middle of your typical range of sleep. If you're really determined on having the experience then get your ass out of bed and go into a separate room with a sofa or chair and sit upright and relax. This point it critical, you might have to repeat a mantra like "I am awake, I am aware of myself right now, ect". With your eyes closed and without loosing awareness of the situation, picture in your mind something in the room as it would look if you were standing in front of it with your eyes open (I sit in my living room on the couch and picture my front door, the entire wall as I see it everyday). Once you are viewing in your mind the image of the front door as if you were standing in front of it the vibrations hit, hard. Learning to embrace them and not fight them is something that can't be achieved without repeated personal experience, however the triggering of the vibrations happens almost immediately with this technique, and here's why.

      By getting up half way through a sleep your mind is rested more so than at the end of the day though your body is still slow, heavy, and sluggish. This specific time to focus your consciousness along with the target technique is almost like cheating. Again, the hardest part of this is not drifting off to sleep and loosing focus on intent. I understand this may not work for you specifically however I've tried them all and this works almost effortlessly. The vibrations came on so quick I felt as if every part of my being was being sucked through a keyhole and it was extremely dramatic. Afterwards I was tumbling around near the floor completely conscious staring back at the couch. I am no longer a skeptic of this phenomenon in the slightest sense. Simply amazing, good luck.

      William: Re Human experience on this planet - there is the ability within the experience to consider all things are accidental, or require Human will to make happen, and so the idea of predetermination is not easy to incorporate into that experience. - Not impossible - but certainly not easy.
      What the idea does do, is allow for one to understand that - while it appears that ones choices are involved with randomness - a random universe - if one can incorporate the idea of predetermination, one can 'go along with what unfolds' with an insight that equates to am understanding that one is helping in the process/co-creating their reality, and aligning one mind with the greater Mind...

      William: Okay - so therein it appears what you are saying is that religion evolved from ideas which Humans had [re existing within a creation] and the output of that belief allowed for human to express their love for the particular 'God' that they imaged, into the external environment.
      Their Love was expressed in the way that they worshiped/interacted with the idea of a Creator...
      Their Love was also encouraged by the Mind behind creation, through showing them that everything was ultimately under control...

      William: FTL;
      Agnostic: Yet I have never seen that stop an atheist from consistently attempting to use science in their telling of their opinions about gods.


      Atheist: As an atheist, I'm not above referring to science in support of various claims I, or others, may make.


      Agnostic: I was being specific to statements of opinion, rather than claims.
      For example, a common argument from atheists that there cannot be a Creator-GOD because "Evolution" when it is clear that the theory of evolution offers no evidence that we do not exist within a creation.
      Stuff like that.

      Atheist: Yeah, that'n causes me a fuss too. I offer what retractions'll fix my error in understanding what you were getting at.

      It's just such a good source for confirmatory data. That theists can't, or struggle to refer to science in order to promote their beliefs is their problem, not a problem of scientific principles.

      Agnostic: On the surface this sounds logical.
      However, on the belief that we exist within a creation = "Therefore a Creator-GOD" there has been no science done which provides any of us with the right to premise. ["Therefore a Creator-GOD"]
      Thus, promoting beliefs in ideas of Creator-GODs is cart before the horse stuff.
      However, if one proceeds in a horse before the cart manner, the focus is on the idea that we exist within a creation, we can then look for evidence within the reality experience we call 'The Universe" and see what can be found therein to support the notion that the reality experience is a creation.

      Atheist: Plenty fair. Lacking specific examples, I see no problem at all with this approach.

      As you know, I'm very intrigued by your Cosmic Mind hypothesis. I want your notion to be true, to be scientifically proven, insofar as how neat I think it would be. I'd love for the scientific community to be able to offer confirmation in this regard. Sadly though, you and I enjoy this notion without such confirmation.


      Agnostic: Thanks for saying so. We share in the intrigue.
      For me, the notion certainly appears to be true re the evidence - even through the Message Generating Process under development - [Today's GM] is certainly understandable enough and deals with this subject in more detail.

      As I understand it, IF there is a "Cosmic Mind" involved with the creation of our Universe, scientists will eventually [naturally] discover this just by continuing to do science.
      In the meantime I do my own science, and am satisfied with the results so far.
      Going off of the readership stats so far, there appears to be a consistent reader-interest where I post the GMs - here, and in other internet forums...


      Atheist: I gotta fess it, those messages leave me lost as a cow at a square dance. I chalk that up to my lack of formal education.

      Granted, where an atheist (or anyone) refers to science and gets it wrong, we oughta all fuss about that.

      Agnostic: My position is that - in the last 24 hours - I have decided that am done with interacting with atheists and being distracted by their statements of opinion re the Question of GOD...except for the exception of JK because you have consistently shown a willingness to remain open minded about the idea of a "Cosmic Mind" and it is undeniable that such a Mind - if it truly exists - could be referred to as a "GOD'.
      In all my years of interacting with atheists, I have never had the pleasure and - like I say - After years of subjection to atheist opinions, I have had enough of it.


      Atheist: In considering we're here on this site to debate theses issues, I do find it odd that some'd prefer not to be bothered with at least trying to understand the other guy. Especially where, such as you, they make compelling arguments, up to and including wit and wisdom, laughter and medicine.

      Of course, I don't frequent TD&D, but even there, I find me a jewel now and then.
      As an amateur, a wanna-be scientist, maybe I rely too much on science in support of my own world view.


      Agnostic: What will you do if/when science discovers that we actually do exist within a creation?

      Atheist: Accept my new reality. I ain't so proud to think I've got all this right, all by myself
      I submit though, that cracking open the bible ain't the way to fix that.

      Agnostic: That is an irrelevant opinion to me, because - as you know - I am not a Theist or an Atheist because I see no logic in having an opinion on GOD until it can be established that we exist within a creation.


      Atheist: I plow that under, and deny I ever said it, as relates to your position.


      Agnostic: The closest I come to that, is with the notion that there MAY be a "Cosmic Mind" and if such can be identified in ANY religious script, I am open [of mind] to investigating that.

      Atheist: Otherwise - since I am not advocating folk need to do that, it is not an issue I have to answer to.

      Agnostic: I second the notion.
      Thanks for you feedback John.

      Atheist: And thank you, my friend, for understanding the limits of my abilities, and patiently explaining to me em

      Back when god was speaking why would anyone think he meant 3,000+ years by "short time," rather than "in a few years, or at most a life time or so"?
      Q: Where in the Bible does the God YHVH say he will "go away" or "come back"?

      As to promises of this nature, as is evident, the Christian belief in the "return of Christ" is a belief which obviously changed from expectation of an immanent event which - when it failed to occur - became a promise which could be fulfilled "any time" therefore allowing all sorts of extra features to be added around that belief, before - centuries later when Rome established Christianity - the collection of writings were bound together and sealed as "complete" so that no more could be added.

      Within those pages that were added, there is plenty of room for personal interpretation and disagreement depending upon ones particular desired outcome plus - with the "no man knows the day or hour", granted Christianity an indefinite period of time in which to peddle the wares, meantime the world goes on as it does, irrespective of what Christians believe or do not believe.

      Until such a day happens, I see no logical reason why one has to believe Jesus will return, simply because "it is written" in Christian script supported by Roman initiative.

      Rather, if such ever happens, then one can say "it has happened", if one might witness how such a happening would actually unfold and have the opportunity to observe. Then, it can be shown if any of Christianity's many variations of 'what will happen" were correct or not.

      Until then, I see no reason to accept any of it as truth/truthful.

      I am inclined to the more reasonable understanding that the story was fabricated by Roman/Greek influences as a means of further rubbing the Jews noses in their defeat and their temple being destroyed and their subsequent ejection from Israel, as compelled by Rome.

      William: And that begins with Earth Mother...

      Manu Iti: Indeed.
      The Mother was born of a vaster thing - our Grand-Mother - and we shall get to Grand-Mother in due course.
      The Mother was placed within The Earth by Grand-Mother and became the mind of the planet. When this happened, Mother was a Child Herself - a new thing placed within the form of the planet, while at the same time, a part of The Ancient Mind of Grand-Mother...

      William: How is that even possible, Father?

      Manu Iti: It is possible through the power of forgetting.

      The Ancient Mind of Grand-Mother spawned a thought in the form of a spark of light and placed it inside the middle of a dark and lifeless form, and in doing so, gave the form - Life.
      In that action, the Earth became a living planet. She also became a new conscious entity...a being with a beginning, because the action of placing Her into a planet, erased all knowledge of ever having a prior existence as The Grand Mother.

      William: Did The Grand Mother know this would happen?

      Manu Iti: Yes. The Grand Mother knew that this would continue for a time. The Grand Mother knew that Her Daughter would be orphaned by that lack of knowledge and this would result in a new Being which could operate successfully without having to have that knowledge - and that one day, The Daughter would come to know of The Grand Mother and reconnect...{SOURCE}

      Yes, this could be the case for all such stories.
      The difficulty then, is in how one could determine the truth.

      Even if such a thing happened to you, how would you be able to determine that you were not, hallucinating, dreaming, or honestly mistaken in some other way, etc?

      I think there is quite the mix of flourishing and destruction going on.
      This is the nature of our environment. What do you thing the percentage of the mix is, and why?

      I think heaven is more a state than another realm.
      What do you mean by 'a state'? A state of mind, perhaps?
      Our minds are affected, but it’s not just a state of mind. I think it’s a physical and emotional thing as well.
      In what way can Heaven be physical AND not a universe/'realm in its own right?

      What do you mean by "emotional thing as well"? Do you count emotional things as the affect of mind?

      When Jesus talks about how to get there (in John 14), he doesn’t give location-type directions. He says that He is the way (v. 6) and then that knowing him is connected to knowing the Father. Jesus seems to be talking about a relational kind of change, not a locational change. It’s more about being with God and knowing God and living out of that relationship.
      If you believe this is what Jesus meant, where did Jesus go when he ascended into the clouds? Obviously movement and going somewhere/relocating was involved in that process. Jesus confirmed that an attitude was necessary to that movement of relocation, so that would explain the relational kind of change, but not the physical relocation movement involved and so it is not so easy to deny that when Jesus said where he was to go his followers could not go [at that time] so your thinking where Jesus went was not really a place but a state, appears to leave much out.

      The physical universe is not a ‘state’ in this sense.
      Or, perhaps every universe/experience is a 'state' and state is one way of saying 'simulation' and Jesus was able to move from one state to the next.
      I think it is trivially true that the physical universe covers all that exists physically. That’s just the definition to me. That doesn’t preclude something like a multiverse with distinct physical “universes,” although I don’t think Jesus was talking about other physical locations in speaking of heaven and God’s presence.
      In what way [negative/positive] would it impact your belief system to understand that Jesus was indeed speaking of alternate realities as locations which can be experienced physically/as real?
      Would such help you to understand that the non-biblical stories mentioned, are more likely NOT lies being told, hallucinations been had, or honest mistakes being made?

      The descending in Revelations 21, I think, is metaphorical but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t also involve actual physical changes.
      Perhaps it serves as a placeholder to remain undecided and to think biblical events as metaphor, but the OP is asking whether Simulation Theory is valid re those stories, and also shows that it could validate non-biblical stories as well, because we are essentially examining the stories in that light.

      Perhaps the difficult one can have with ST is in thinking that somehow things experienced - whether heavenly of earthly are therefore "NOT REAL" but I think that this is an incorrect assumption.

      Lets say a heavenly city does descend and therefore shows us that metaphor was an incorrect assumption/belief.

      What options as to explanation could we draw from such an event?

      I agree that this interpretation is logically possible. I don’t think it is the better interpretation, though, for reasons like I’ve shared.
      Is it because of your belief systems that you have this opinion?
      This question doesn’t make much sense to me.
      Okay...

      My belief system is simply the collection of my opinions.
      Okay...

      I don’t hold my opinions based on authority, if that is what you mean.
      Is this because your beliefs are simply a set of opinions and thus hold no authority? Why have beliefs then?
      Assuming we are physical beings. We may well actually be non-physical beings who are experiencing a physical simulation. The "glorified environment" may be another way of saying our reality experience has been changed, along with our understanding of who we are.
      I think there are good reasons to reject the above interpretation...
      What 'good reasons' are these? You have not said. You have been asked. For example, I asked you what the difference is between experiencing something real and experiencing something simulated...

      It is not easy for me to determine what your reasons are if you do not state them.

      ...and, so, it becomes a part of my belief system.
      Which is essentially a non-authoritative set of opinions of which you have undisclosed reasons for holding...

      How can one evaluate your rejection of ST when you do not disclose the reasons for your beliefs/opinion sets?

      I don't understand how you could claim to have a relationship with someone while simultaneously begging Him to make himself known to you.
      It is possibly, as some do have these types of human~human relationships but this usually signifies that one of the individuals forming the relationship, withholds their essence from the other, who desperately wants to share their essence with the one withholding.

      Your own witness/advice re the voice you hear Tam... - the voice of a male entity inside your own head - ...is off-putting because of its significant link with mental unwellness re "to hear any other voice in ones head but thine own".

      Q: Is hearing this male entities voice in one's head, how far you expect other folk to go before you can accept that they are genuinely hearing "The Lords Voice" and having a relationship with that "Voice" in their head, which isn't their own?

      Q: Are you saying then, that it is your own thought-voice expressing a common sense, rather than you having heard it stated by the other voice you claim, is Christ?

      Q: What makes you think that just because some folk have contradictory views, that the whole thing being viewed from these different perspectives, isn't Christ working with what is available to Christ, to work with?

      Q: "Contradicts Christ" according to whom? Your point of view or Christs?

      Q: Where can this contradiction be found, that we can examine that as evidence against these one's that at least - you speak about?

      You should understand that such argument can be sourced in the belief that the brain hallucinates everything, including consciousness.

      That is a room without exits as far as positions go..."atheistic" as you suggest... and it should not be expected to be any other way or needlessly/pointlessly complained about.

      I suppose that it is the 'tricks' which have to be addressed because the illusions can induce anger in the personality which acts as a preventative for getting to know the 'tricksters'...from my own 'getting to know' I have discovered that the 'tricks' are not really 'tricks' so much as they are a product of how a personality interprets their experience.

      The Visitation is one such example. I - as the personality experiencing the event - took issue and told the visitor to leave.
      The visitor did leave, but not without first instilling within me - questions regarding my perceptions. Questions which have taken 30+years to come to answer.

      The personality I am now, is not the same as it was way back when. Now I see the 'trick' was really just truth to which I was not expecting because I had little knowledge of such truth - way back when...

      Chamber Twenty Three - A: To grow Human Personalities

      William:
      Chamber Twenty Three
      Spiral
      Inside there is something gnawing
      with silken jaws and wax teeth.
      It holds me still in pureness
      like a circle whose middle
      is my cage.

      While you went away from me
      I was ever tightening my circle.
      A spiral cut in glass.
      A flower’s bloom dropping petals.
      A winnowed ball of yarn
      spilling color.

      I see the inside of your thigh
      brilliant in its smoothness,
      and I spiral ever closer to your edge.
      Paper cut touching I burn
      bleeding without pain.
      How could I spill so easily
      without knowing why?

      When I hear your voice
      there is no quenching this ache
      to hold you.
      Like one who draws near and then forgets
      the story they came to tell,
      I circle you waiting for thread’s tautness
      to draw us ever closer
      though I know not how.

      The final luxury is the kiss
      of your boundless heart.
      The final beauty so pure
      all else limps behind blissfully in your wake.
      Drawing from your shadows
      the light of saplings
      lurking on the forest floor.

      If I could unbutton you,
      take your dress down
      I would see a map of my universe.
      A phantom limb, grown from
      my body like wings sprouting from a chrysalis
      reaches for you.
      It is the hand of clarity
      desperate for your skin
      so powerfully bidden
      as though a shimmering block of light
      cut from black velvet,
      stood before me.
      And all I could do was to reach out
      and touch it,
      not knowing why,
      but utterly unafraid.

      William: FTL re Intelligence as a planetary scale process
      Humanity currently sits at a precipice: our collective actions clearly have global consequences, but we are not yet in control of those consequences. A transition to planetary intelligence, as we described here, would have the hallmark property of intelligence operating at a planetary scale. Such planetary intelligence would be capable of steering the future evolution of Earth, acting in concert with planetary systems and guided by a deep understanding of such systems.

      Proposition for Debate:
      There is no God, because if there were, he would not have bothered to create the universe or us. Therefore, does not our very existence prove there is no God?
      From another thread;

      Compassionist: I think being omniscient and omnipotent would give one free will. Since I am not omniscient and omnipotent, I can't know that for sure.

      William: What process did you use in order to come to the declaration that being omniscient and omnipotent would give one free will/amount to one having free will?

      Compassionist: I realize that if I were all-knowing and all-powerful, I would be free from all constraints and my will won't be determined by my genes, environments, nutrients and experiences.

      William: Let us examine this idea together then.

      I see immediately that if I were all-knowing. I would be constrained by my omniscience.

      Thus I would have no free will in relation to being all knowing.

      Yet - being also all-powerful, I would be able to break free from the constraints of being all-knowing.

      Would you agree with this assessment, so far?
      Unfortunately I got no more interaction from Compassionist re this...and now this thread.

      Your Proposition for Debate is something of straw because it failed to add in the aspect of the idea of GOD to do with being all powerful.

      An all powerful GOD [omnipotent] who knew everything could indeed have created this universe, and the existence of this universe goes some way toward evidence which gives us - in our existing - an understanding of why we exist in such an environment as we do.

      Also, your assumption that the GOD would be lonely and terrified and without purpose is what I refer to as "Mirror-Mirror" as one places what one believes of of oneself, into the GOD-role and "Hey Presto!'

      What you see is what you get.

      This same thing carries over into the next faze, given the many NDEs people have shared to the world. Whether they know it or not, each individual who meets GOD through NDE meets a being to which they place their own images onto, which in turn effects the way the GOD goes about showing them things.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hm-IGeVpJ-M&t=4704s
      Which is to say, if one thinks of GOD as being lonely and terrified and without purpose, there are places which accommodate such individuals and such individuals get to experience such places...according to the stories circulating...

      But anyway, it is my purpose to warn folk about how they think about GOD - specifically to try and assist them in way which might help them use their freeish will to avoid such fate.

      The grounds for your Proposition for Debate "There is no God" are faulty Diogenes. They are a false image of the self, superimposed upon the structure of GOD.

We touch on a number of related themes: the creative deployment of mythic or literary figures, from Cthulhu and zombies, to the Centaur, the Minotaur, and the khora; the importance of wrestling with existential and epistemological limit conditions, and the role of ambiguity in higher forms of rationality; the relation of non-theism to classical theism and atheism; the history of integrative practices, and the 'traps' in conventional practice that can thwart balanced development; and much more. ww.youtube.com/watch?v=t48dC_tJJrY&t=3672s

Sometimes Wunjo is interpreted as gentle, a caress or a smile; other times it is closer to ecstasy, bliss and the fulfilment of personal will. It is also related to wish making, and the realisation of wishes. Its role in both personal ecstasy and communal joy is important, emphasising the need for happiness on the part of both the individual and the clan – Wunjo enables this difficult balance. {SOURCE}

      What have we figured out about the eternal? He is self-existent, unchanging, uncaused, cause of all things, all-knowing, self-aware, something like intelligent, and something like conscious, all-powerful, and omnipresent.

      I think that is enough to establish him as God. I have deduced so much more about God in this same way, but if I keep going this will turn into a book, and I doubt you want to read a book right now.

      William: How can time physically exist?

      Bust Nak: By being a part of physical reality.

      William: Can you show us that it is?

      [Replying to Bust Nak in post #667]

      I can show you a clock?
      Okay. You show me a clock and declare that time is part of physical reality.

      Is time something you can pick up off the floor and place on the table?
      Maybe.
      What makes you think that?
      Because you said we don't know what time is fundamentally.
      So you see that as a challenge - that 'maybe' you can show us that we do know what time is, fundamentally?

      I said that time is a pointless concept in relation to forever.
      What is doing the 'ticking'?
      Time.
      Then show us this thing you call time which is ticking.
      See clock.
      So you have seen a clock on the floor, and placed it on the table and thus declare "Clock is ticking, therefore we have evidence that time is known at its fundamental level!"?

      What things are you separating from the universe so as not to make the absurd expression that the universe caused itself?
      The cause of the universe, for example is separated from the universe.
      Is this supposed separation - fundamentally separate - or simply appearing to be separate?
      Is the wake separate from the sea? Is the ship separate from the wake?
      Is the land separate from the sea?

      Why separate parts of the universe from that which is the whole of the universe?
      It's not the whole of the universe, that's the point.
      Speaking of pointing - are your fingers separate from your hand?

      And yet that doesn't stop you making grandiose claims about time itself ending.
      I made no such claims. I stated that time is a construct of the mind and does not physically exist.
      This is what you said: "Time cannot 'tick on forever' because forever is timeless."
      I said way more than just that. I even went to some lengths to clarify what I meant by "Forever is timeless."

      As I pointed out, the Mandelbrot Set has made it conceptionally easier to understand that there is nothing absurd in the idea and nothing at fault in the notion of 'turtles' [or elephants or seahorses] all the way in and out. [ Infinite Regression is Possible]
      Beginning points, are not significant of being separate from the one thing which is all things. They are distinct parts of what makes up the whole.
      So what?
      Therefore, we have visual representation of infinity. Time is simply a set of begin/end points within the infinite set which folk use to count moments by.

      That doesn't mean you can say things like time didn't have a beginning or that it won't tick on forever.
      Of course I can say those things. I have even pointed out why I can logically say those things.

      Since we are informed that the universe had a beginning, the universe is the effect. Something which has a beginning cannot be the cause of its own effect.

      Therefore, energy must have to be something other than [but not separate from] the QF.
      Why?
      Because it is Energy which causes the effect. To say Energy is the same thing as the objects it forms, is to say that Energy was the cause of its own beginning, which you have already identified as an absurd notion,
      Why are they equivalent?
      [equivalent - a person or thing that is equal to or corresponds with another in value, amount, function, meaning, etc.]

      Your question is one of fundamentals. We do not know the fundamentals of the QF or of Energy.

      Read what I wrote again. See the bold part is not stating 'there is no matter'.
      I was asking you why you believe that when there was no matter near the beginning of the universe works better as an explanation.
      To say that there was no matter before the beginning of the universe, means one has to explain where matter came from.
      If you can explain that, then we can examine why it works better as an explanation, than the explanation which says that matter has always existed.
      Another thing we do not know, is the fundamental nature of the QF. For all we know, it may be a vast sphere, and our universe, simply a tiny blip of light on its overall surface caused by whatever the energy is, passing by and interacting with the QF in that particular area of QF.
      We do not know, and yet that didn't stop you from stating that time would not tick on forever.
      Nor did it stop you stating that time would "tick on forever". Show us this physical time so that we can evaluate the truth of your statement.
      I have something better, see red shift.
      How is that better?
      Doe redshift tick? Is redshift the fundamental of time?

      Time began and continues as a concept of the mind, re what is being observed through the nervous system [brain]. Time did not have a physical beginning, because it is not a physical thing. Time is a mental construct based upon sensory input.
      That's only our concept of time, what about time itself?
      Show us this physical time so that we can answer your question.
      So you don't know whether physical time will tick on forever or not, without seeing it first?
      We don't know that your claim that time is physical rather than a concept of the mind, it true. Of course a claim of a physical thing has to be shown first, before we can agree that it is indeed, a physical thing.

      That's only our concept of time, what about time itself?
      That depends upon what relation consciousness/mind has with it.
      Lets try none, no relation what so ever.
      Okay. What do you propose re that?
      Just the standard scientific consensus, as it stands right now: time had a beginning, and will tick on forever.
      How does the "standard scientific consensus" have "no relation what so ever" with consciousness/mind?

      Time is not a physically real thing. Time is a conceptionally real thing. No conflation there.
      I am arguing that time is a conceptual thing, because I have been shown no evidence to the contrary. If you can show me evidence that time is a physical thing, I will be more than happy to drop the notion that time is a conceptual thing.
      Again, see clock.
      You are the one stating that time is physical. If it is, you should be able to point to it and say "that's what I'm talking about!"
      I point to a clock, that's what I am talking about.
      A clock is a physical mechanism which is designed to physically represent time as conceptualized by human consciousness/understanding.
      A physical representation of a conceptual idea, is in no way an example of time as a fundamental reality.

      It is like someone claiming that the written word "Unicorn" is the same thing as an actual physical Unicorn, when in truth, it is simply a symbolic representation of something which is not able to be shown to exist as anything other than a concept of the mind.

      If consciousness is not there to conceptionally observe time 'tick on forever' how would anyone know?
      Presumably no one would know. Why do you think that has any relevance as to whether it is still ticking or not?
      Because if time cannot be determined through conscious observation, to be ticking or not ticking, how are we to know either way?
      And since time is obviously a conscious construct of the mind, if the mind no longer exists, neither does the construct. It becomes meaningless, because consciousness is what gives things meaning.
      Mindless processes do not require time, even if they go on forever.

      Mindless processes do not require measurements. Time is a mental construct dealing with measurements.

      Red shift doesn't make time a fundamental reality, any more than a mechanical clock does.

      Adams knowledge of what death was.
      As I pointed out, having knowledge does not equate to having understanding of that knowledge.

      Where in the storyline, did they get the understanding of what death was?
      So, YHVH told them to not do something because it leads to death, knowing that they didn’t understand what the concept meant?
      Yes. The point was not whether Adam knew, but that Adam followed YHVH's instructions.

      And then punish them for not following YHVH’s directions.
      Yes. That is the story.

      And this follows the storyline? What specific verse(s) point to these things?
      The story specific is vague on details. If there is anything in the story that you can point to which would verify that Adam knew what death was, we can look into that.

      If not, then I see no reason to think Adam understood what death was.
      ___________________________
      ___________________________
      The Breath of YHVH.
      If we accept YHVH's breath as an interface device between the newly forming conscious awareness of the personality "Adam" and YHVH's own consciousness, we could agree that the interface is itself conscious of being "Of YHVH's consciousness".
      And the LORD YHVH formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
      Why should we accept that?
      And the LORD YHVH took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
      That is the purpose of examining what little is revealed, in the storyline.

      My first question re that, would be;

      Q: How did Adam understand language?

      Clearly the story tells us that Adam understood language

      And the LORD YHVH commanded Adam, saying,
      So we can agree that Adam understood what YHVH spoke to Adam.



      We also know that Adam was the only sentient being in The Garden, and that - even with the voice of YHVH teaching him stuff - Adam was lonely and so YHVH created animals to help alleviate Adams loneliness.

      And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
      We know also, that Adam had the ability to name the animals of the garden that YHVH had provided to help Adam with his loneliness.

      And out of the ground the LORD YHVH formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; ...
      And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
      As the story indicates, even with the other animals created to alleviate Adam's loneliness.

      Even the Serpent - another sentient being YHVH made from the dust and placed in The Garden, and one which understood language and Adam could converse with - was not able to fill this void which was obviously still missing in Adam's world.

      Herein, we can pause and examine the man Adam, and understand that with the greatest teacher-voice in the universe gifting Adam with the ability to understand and use language and have basic critical thinking skills, Adam got lonely.

      YHVH creates tasks for Adam with the idea that the tasks should occupy Adams intellect sufficiently for the loneliness to subside.

      Adam didn't even need to search the Garden and find the animals, in order to name them.

      ...and [YHVH] brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof
      The storyline tells us that Adam was intelligent and able to learn from YHVH.

      It is apparent in the storyline, that without The Breath of YHVH, this would not have been possible for Adam to achieve. He would not have been able to learn things.

      Therefore, I can accept that The Breath of YHVH acts as an interface device between the newly forming conscious awareness of the personality "Adam" and YHVH's own consciousness.

      I see no practical reason why we cannot agree that the interface is itself conscious of being "Of YHVH's consciousness" and that it was the primary source of instruction - where Adam formed his intellectual abilities and mindful concepts before expressing these into the outside environment of The Garden.

      What is noticeable about the style of The Garden Story is that it is presented in a bullet-point manner.
      As such, if it were told verbatim around a campfire, it would be over in a matter of minutes, and leave the listener with more questions than it gives answers to.
      That is what we have to work with.

      1: Adam understood language.

      William: The Gem was mentioned by me yesterday;
      Moving through the epochs from that beginning [Bog Bang] [[ I saw the typo and decided not to correct it]] - from the Big Bog to present day, more fragmentation of the Ambassador Consciousness into the unfolding creation was enabled, as the 'stuff' separated into objects which could be mindfully utilized as body-sets, and the further down that rabbit hole the AC went, the less and less connected with the reality of Itself - it experienced - until the density of the body-set reached its maximum level and a complete cutoff of knowledge of prior experience occurred...but not a cutoff of consciousness...and this is what we humans have been occupied within - body-sets which produced amnesia.

      The side affect of that was that this consciousness of which we are, was unable to easily be an Ambassador to the AC...and "Huston we have a problem"...

      Or do we?

      Somewhere inside each of us, there must be a Gem that we can find in order to reboot the connection...

      So before we go cutting off the mythologies of the past, we might first want to see if there is any recognizable tell-tales of which we might 'hear the voice' of the AC even that at times the hands of human influence have attempted to muffle into silence said voice...and not just through religion, but throughout human culture where the games all begin...{SOURCE}

      Is it reasonable to assume a creator?

      [Replying to DrNoGods in post #383]

      I wouldn't call the ideas unreasonable, but they don't convince me that such a being exists or is necessary to the exclusion of a purely natural explanation for whatever functions this necessary being is claimed to be necessary for.
      I would add that it does not matter then, that you are unconvinced, simply because you already have no need for such a being to exist, and no reason given has been acceptable to you on account that lack of need is already recognized within the psyche of your self.

      It is the nature of Fairy Farts to waft off in all directions possible, and your position is one such direction.

      The direction I wafted on the wind of, includes the possibility that the thing referred to as "purely natural" may be a creation, so I remain open and vigil to that question...

      Same propellent - different perspectives.

      What have we figured out about the eternal? He is self-existent, unchanging, uncaused, cause of all things, all-knowing, self-aware, something like intelligent, and something like conscious, all-powerful, and omnipresent.

      I think that is enough to establish him as God. I have deduced so much more about God in this same way, but if I keep going this will turn into a book, and I doubt you want to read a book right now.
      Who is this God?

      Wherever the blame can rightfully be hung, it can hardly be hung around the necks of the scientists who have been warning us of the very extinction event situation you mention.

      One must remember that it is a particular branch of Materialistic science to which the blame could be hung - and that the scientists doing the warning are most likely not of that particular branch...they may be biologists rather than cosmologists and so understand the importance of preserving the planet-ship we are sailing upon [@ about 1.6 million miles per day] rather than creating space-junk and reaching for the stars...I did say "Exact Science" after all.

      What do do to prepare for the Alien Invasion
      While I was uploading this I went outside for a ciggy and wouldn't you know it! A light the size of a bright star suddenly appeared in the sky and moved northwards dragging a sparkly tail behind it and then disappeared.
      I thought to myself "Well ain't that a hoot - great humor fancy that etc...I'll have to tell this story! and then again from the exact same spot another light appeared and began to move northwards - it didn't have a tail and moved slowly like a satellite and I watched it for about five minutes until it disappeared behind the clouds .

      Was it a UFO?

      Well it is unidentified other than what I just wrote.
      It was in the sky which is seen to be an act of flight.
      It was an object -

      It had no strobe
      The tail of the first one was not flames/fire - it looked electric with a sparkle like those sparklers when they are lit
      It could have been a satellite if not for the fact that it was a lot bigger light than I have ever seen a satellite and it appeared out of nowhere in the middle of the sky directly in front of me - my head wasn't tilted back - I was looking straight ahead.
      And
      The second light came from exactly the same spot as the first and I haven't seen satellites do that before!
      Both lights were the same size as each other.

      William: F3...
      Focus 3 can best be thought of as a tree, with the least free thinking areas towards the bottom and gradually becoming more free thinking up to the top. With the lower branches, they are populated by all kinds of people involved in horrific practises who are basically slaves to their basest animal instincts. Many will not even be aware that they have 'died'. This region equates to Monroe's F23 - F24.
      Further up the tree, you find all the heaven and hell scenarios and other places created from people's expectations after death. They are populated by those who had very strict, fundamentalist religious views on what would happen to them in the afterlife. You will also find many other groups and individuals engaged in an almost limitless amount of other scenarios of their own making. Again while some of them are aware they have transitioned from F1, others may be unaware that they have 'died' or are confused about exactly what has happened to them. This region equates to Monroe's 'Belief System Territories' of F25 - F26.
      Then, towards the upper branches of the F3 tree, which equates to Monroe's F27 label, you have the free thinking areas where people are most well balanced and have no fundamentalist mindsets, or warped desires to kill babies with chainsaws. They are very happy, fun loving and joyful. I tend to refer to their attitude as 'dead and loving it'. These upper (or more correctly: Wider), free thinking areas are also huge in number and you can find all manner of interesting people and locales there. There are too many upper F3 areas to possibly count, but they do include some important locations made famous by The Monroe School, such as The Park, where people often come to chill out while recovering from their physical world experience, The Life Review Centre, the Library and so on.

      Tonight the stars shine as I step out of time
      As I step into the great unknown
      No thought about fate or of ending up late
      Yet I still like to think where I'm going
      No time left for a sentimental tune
      Wherever I've gone I have not left the room
      I am never too late I am never too soon
      No longer tied to the moon

      For whom the bell tolls For to gather the souls
      The numbers in darkness are glowing
      The ticking wont stop while we all watch the clock
      As the winds of our lives are still blowing
      Down through the ages - dark in the gloom
      Many convinced it will all end in doom
      The Galactic Garden is forever in bloom
      No time to be tied to the moon

      Asleep or awake for the give or the take
      Its a good ship that sails these cosmos
      With a mystical smile I float down the isle
      Forgetting the time when I was lost
      The picture unfolds like silk in a loom
      Silhouetted by Diane are the witch and the broom
      If she is the bride - who is the groom?
      Only those who are tied to the moon

      I know how you care while you nurture your fear
      That you'll miss the bouquet when its thrown
      We stood side by side while the veils did hide
      The faces of children now grown
      Memorised vows enchanted by tune
      Before the great minstrel the fair maidens swoon
      We came to our senses as we left the cocoon
      No wanna, be tied to the moon

      The Light in The Dark Everyone a great spark
      Everyone of us all here together
      With a small nervous cough - the wedding was off
      We could all sense a change in the weather
      Down came the waters -great the monsoon
      Washing the soul as it cleared out the room
      Drowning all Warriors in every platoon -
      Still tied to the blood of the moon

      The Dohrman Prophecy
      Deep in a mystical forest, hidden by centuries of myth and technologies of stealth, three monolithic stones rise like beacons brought to this planet by an unknown source. It is the most secret possession of the Church, and it is alive in ways that no one predicted.

      There is one who will awaken it and this is what is whispered among the elite who have read the most secret of all books The Dohrman Prophecy.

      The awakening has begun from a single journey, but all of us will feel the changes.

      From the author, artist, poet, composer who created the contemporary mythology known as the WingMakers, comes a new journey into consciousness equally provocative and stirring to the soul. The Dohrman Prophecy is an expansive novel set in a mystical time and mythical place, but its characters are carved from the very real forces that shape our world—religion, government and heroic individualism.

      If you’re a fan of Paulo Coelho or Kahlil Gibran, you will love the poetic prose of The Dohrman Prophecy. Its message of transformation and love has that rare flavor of truth and substance that only the best works of spiritual fiction offer. It is a novel that has it all: love, romance, fierce conflicts between good and evil, and intelligent characters who define individualism and personal transformation.

      [Replying to TRANSPONDER in post #93]

      Certainly - whatever you mean by Mind and whatever you mean by Everything.
      Your unsupported statements have what to do with whatever I mean by "Mind" and whatever I mean by "Everything"?

      Well I can and logically must imply an established 'truth' (a natural world that so far has shown no Cosmic Mind or 'God') that is the default position that requires anything as yet unproven to be proven.
      Whereas I can and logically must assume the Natural Neutral position on any matters yet to be unproven or proven.

      [Our positions are therefore unaligned.]

      Your position assumes established truth where no such truth has been established re whether or not we exist within a creation.

      I don't think it leads to closed -mindedness. In fact I have found it a reliable basis that allows consideration of all kinds of woo stuff ...
      The very fact that your choice of word ["woo"] belies the open-mindedness you proclaim to have.

      My mind is not closed to a Cosmic Mind, Creator or god. I just require some better evidence than 'not disproved' and 'possible'.
      I am reminded of a hunter who goes out and gets food for himself rather than expecting the food to come to him/her.

      The data is there to hunt down and to study. An open minded non-judgmental approach is essential to that process. The process is also dependent upon the position one is approaching the data from. The closeminded belief that one does not exist within a creation can only ever lead one to learn things through that filter.

      No amount of evidence given should ever be hoped for in order to change any individuals mind from the influencing aspects of their chosen position, regardless if those positions be theist or atheist based.

      On top of that, it is very apparent that the type of convincing evidence you are demanding from the position you are demanding it from, will unlikely be available to any of us in this lifetime.

      Thus, we are forced for now to do most of our hunting, solo.

      We can of course, cross reference with other open-minded fellows...but the open-mindedness derives from the Natural Neutral position, not the theist or atheist positions.

      I think that atheists strongly defend their position on the question as to whether or not we exist within a creation - to the point that they believe we don't and make claims about that - has something to do with the need to say "I told you so" now, because it will be too late to utter such belief-based expressions - after they are dead and gone.

      I can see the attraction from a phycological perspective, but saying "I told you so" before any such thing has been established, is jumping the gun, and might even lead to embarrassment if it turns out one still exists after the fact ones brain has died.

      Still, such is the power of belief-based positions. They tend toward making proclamations which imply established truth, when no such truth has been established.

      [Replying to William in post #331]

      I suppose that it is the 'tricks' which have to be addressed because the illusions can induce anger in the personality which acts as a preventative for getting to know the 'tricksters'...from my own 'getting to know' I have discovered that the 'tricks' are not really 'tricks' so much as they are a product of how a personality interprets their experience.

      The Visitation is one such example. I - as the personality experiencing the event - took issue and told the visitor to leave.
      The visitor did leave, but not without first instilling within me - questions regarding my perceptions. Questions which have taken 30+years to come to answer.

      The personality I am now, is not the same as it was way back when. Now I see the 'trick' was really just truth to which I was not expecting because I had little knowledge of such truth - way back when...

      What happened is that I incorperated that visitation experience with all the rest and all that were to follow...developing a relationship which can also be reflected through this Message Generating Process.

      It is really taking the journaling of my life experience, and using that to my advantage in light of the "Bigger Mind"...

      Why I use both systems together is because, when selecting word-strings off my ComList as randomly as one can, the results are coherent messages and as such, are likely coherent because the same intelligent source is in play behind the process of both the evolution of plants and human language and everything else earth-side.

      So it is the intelligent source which is the focus. We cannot easily invoke 'the brain did it' because we are dealing with objective reality and many individualized brains involved with objective reality know that an individual brain does not effect either word-string values or randomly selected word-strings which become coherent messages, any more than it effects the temperature of Sol or how plants organize themselves in a jungle - so in that, the individual brain can be ruled out as the source of the phenomena occurring with the use of these systems I am using to obtain on-growing evidence.

      Therefore, "Something Else" other than brains, has to be the Source.

      William: So these 'conscious agencies' once were somehow separate?

      Not enough information to know for sure. You're going off your knowledge of how a human brain works for recalling memories. There is no evidence that YHVH''s memory is built or works like ours.
      I am simply going with the belief you have that YHVH has a memory. How it works isn't of issue, even that biblical evidence tells us that humans were created in the image of YHVH, and so YHVH might have some type of brain-like device which has the capability of storing memory and that is what you meant when you wrote;
      The Bible doesn't give enough information as to how the memory of God works but I am satisfied with however He handles the lives of my dead loved ones and even everything that makes me, me if I die.
      Given the information the Bible does provide, and knowing the huge numbers of individual personalities who have experienced life on earth to date, the data of experience of those personalities would have to be saved somewhere, so we can ascertain from that, that the Elohim databanks must be very impressive both in size and in function.

      You don't think we can fathom how YHVH managers to do this, but we have enough information to assert that the database must be impressive for YHVH to be able to achieve this thing.

      We can fathom at least as much as the information provides us with.

      A dogmatic atheist flatly denies that there is a Divine Being.
      A skeptical atheist doubts the ability of the human mind to determine, whether or not there is a God.
      A critical atheist maintains that there is no valid proof for the existence of God.

      Especially with the state that cosmology is in. I maintain that it is impossible for anyone to be a dogmatic atheist. If you think you are a dogmatic atheist then you must answer the question of what was there before this universe came into existence.

      Question for debate: Is there such a thing as a dogmatic atheist?
      Being dogmatic has a thinking and attitude component. It tends to involve people expressing unproven views and in an unquestioning way. A lot of the dogmatism in atheism comes from there being a sort of orthodoxy of views. And it's not just limited to the issue of God's existence (although it's related) but you also find it extending into morality, metaphysics, views on religion, etc. The clearest example can be seen when you venture into forums for atheists. That's where you'll most likely find an "orthodoxy" with views that can't be questioned and/or views that are dismissed a priori. Some have tried to challenge me on there being an atheist "orthodox" but I don't know what to call it when I've experienced many atheists sharing similar views and thinking. They may not be as organized as religion, but there are some that do organize and share common views.

      Watch scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson explain this topic starting at 2:10 minute mark. He brings up the "in-your-face badge wearing atheist".
      https://youtu.be/CzSMC5rWvos

      Clarifications:
      - It's also fair to say that there are plenty of atheists that aren't dogmatic, but they seems to be in the minority.
      - It's not wrong to associate or form groups, but doing so makes it easier for "orthodox" views to form and for people to become dogmatic and reject anything that's not part of the orthodoxy.
      GM: The challenge of reconciling belief in an omnipotent, omnibenevolent, and omniscient God, with the existence of evil and suffering in the world, is illusionary.

      William: Hmmm...the type of atheist AB is pointing out the existence of, are personalities I am made aware of in the Skeptical forum mentioned....
      The Idea that Angels had a War in Heaven because some of them wanted to use their creative abilities to design something better than there already was, does not make as much sense and the idea that two separate types of Spirit-Beings happened upon one another, and had some core differences to iron out...and - together - created a way in which said difference could be examined and discussed and sorted out.

      05:42 Leave room for nature

      William:
      P1: Verifying that the Earth is a container for a sentient being, or that it has a "mind of its own" as the thought experiment proposed, is a difficult and complex task.

      P2: Or it could be a massively pointless waste of time. I reckon that's the one.

      P1: Cognitive bias noted.

      P2: Yes, I have a cognitive bias against things with no evidence.

      P1: Which of course, prevents one from being able to do thought experiments of this nature.

      Adopting this perspective could change the way we think about our relationship with the planet and the environment, and may inspire new approaches to addressing the problems caused by human activities, which could lead to a greater focus on sustainability and the long-term health of the planet, rather than just short-term gains or immediate benefits.

      The "evidence" could only be experienced on the other side of adopting the perspective and - as you point out - your cognitive bias prevents you from even entertaining the concept enough to adopt the perspective.

      GM: Each Individual
      One is not wrong

      William: Yes. We all have our perspectives. Recognizing bias is in the mix, is helpful in keeping an open mind.

      GM: Dequeue [remove (an item of data awaiting processing) from a queue of such items.]

      On Generated Messages:

      So, on your specific experiences and the beliefs you have formed from them, I’m not saying they are lies, misinformation, etc. but that they could be. I don’t know you well enough to trust your belief about (for example) what GMs show us over believing they are random arrangements of pre-determined information that you provide and then read back out of it. On top of that, the whole web of informed beliefs I have about reality seem to contradict it, so I don’t think I am warranted in agreeing with your belief there.
      I have no particular belief about why the GMs form as they do. I look to the science for answers - not to prop up beliefs you appear to think I have about said process.

      I do not know why they work as they do - but I am able to ascertain that it must have something to do with YHVH as I understand YHVH to being the principle mind behind this simulated reality I am experiencing with you.

      I do not know how the GM predicted that the subject of child abuse would be brought up in our conversation before you brought it up, except that if YHVH exists then it makes perfect sense.

      Not only did the GM predict what came about, but it also offered reasons for WHY the woman in the video met her grandfather in an alternate experience and experienced knowing that all was good between her and granddad... - let me quote that GM again to show what it is I tell.

      As in, abusing a child is not really evil and we need to see that, and every act, as good? If not, what do you mean in changing the concept of evil?
      To assist us in answering the question, I bring to your attention a snip from the most recent GM [Fri Oct 28, 2022 12:56 pm]

      [The GM itself is the last part of a series which are focused upon this thread topic and in particular, post #126 and our interaction.]

      Please read the above, view the video section and then we can proceed with finding potential agreement, as we continue with this aspect of our discussion.

      YHVH and other humans are the other helpers.
      Yes. In this case YHVH assisting in helping you and I come to agreement, also [potentially] through the woman in the video sharing her experience with us.

      Certainly, for me - the GM process.
      {SOURCE}
      Now - to assist the readers understanding re my own understanding of what the GM was expressing;

      Brother [me/you]
      Concision [advice in how I am best to proceed]
      The Right Tool For The Job [advice in how I am best to proceed]
      Incorporate [advice in how I am best to proceed]
      The Life Essence [YHVH [advice in how I am best to proceed] incorporate YHVH]
      Coordinate Forgiveness [YHVH does the coordinating re forgiveness]
      Original
      Epiphany [YHVH is the origin of one's moment of sudden and great revelation or realization.]
      The Dolphins And Whales [reference to other earthly critters with free will and awareness of YHVH]
      Getting unstuck [is what forgiveness managers to acheive]
      According [according to the linked video - Woman Crosses Over and Gets Told Our Role on Earth (Near Death Experience)] [RandomTimeSelection=9:00]

      I then did a quick number value calculation
      William: Forgiveness -
      Incorporate The Life Essence, Coordinate Forgiveness = 512
      and found one enter which added up to the same number
      Superposition - Being aware of Human Control Dramas = 512

      Which is to say that forgiveness is helpful in regard to human controls drama's - specifically the one mentioned in the video to do with Child abuse...

      A very useful fiction [even if the story was fiction, it still serves a useful purpose]
      Two seemingly contradictory things working as one overall organized thing. [re the granddaughter and the grandfathers relationship as expressed by the woman explaining her alternate experience to us.]
      Communication With The Deeper Levels of Self [This is what is happening re the interactions folk have with others when experiencing these alternate realities]
      The Shadow [ ]
      Develop a basic, fact-based view first and then ask the question. [good advice]
      Radiate Honesty [even while in the process of developing a basic, fact-based view...]

      Do you agree with my assessed interpretation of the GM as it sits?
      William: In reading that - I was also struck by the reference to "The Dolphins and Whales Getting unstuck" per a documentary I watched last night [Frozen Planet II] where an artic pod of whale were stuck for months in the one, place because the ice had closed them in - and the perilous journey they had to go through as the ice began to thaw and they made there way to open sea.
      This is a good analogy for the human experience on this planet.

      There is no particular direction I want to go with this line of thought, other than to keep to it.
      Re your first line of thought, I see this as necessary to one’s personal religion and have no horse in that race.

      I accept all religions as equally having not being proved or disproved and anyone’s personal beliefs are not an issue re Simulation Theory. [ST]

      The topics I mentioned were not for the purpose of discussing them any further than would be necessary, as ST is adequate enough device for explaining the – otherwise – impossible/highly unlikely/against the laws of physics subjects.

      The Resurrection can be explained with ST, as easily as the order things are mentioned re the creation story [Bible].
      ST shouldn’t contradict an individual’s faith/belief if indeed it is agreed that “Creation” and “Simulation” can/do signify the same thing.
      We could go through the list of strange/miraculous/physics-defying biblical events to see if any could be identified as questionable re ST. Nothing comes to memory as I write this…

      Re your second line of thought, my mention of the two opposing positions [theism/atheism] in relation to the words “if one accepts” [either way], theists could answer “Yes” and atheists would answer “No” to the idea that we exist within a creation/simulation.

      “Blind Faith” really isn’t an issue and those who have/hold it are not in any way disadvantaged than those who apply a more academic study-based belief re the question “Do we exist within a creation/simulation?”

      Re your third line of thought, “godidit” is derogatory atheistic terminology and the links I provided give more comprehensive insight into ST and could be used in part to explain how a Creator might create.

      Re your forth line of thought, I am using the word "creator [creators]" separate from the word "simulator" in the same way we would differentiate “Computer Program” from “Programmer” although – if it goes that way, I am happy to discuss why these might need to be conflated.

      As you may recall, something from nothing is a logical absurdity, which is a gigantic step down from just having more than one unexplained.
      Just how logically absurd is it though?

      Consider the ‘logical absurdity’ of superposition (something being in two places at the same time), or of quantum entanglement (‘spooky action at a distance’) as described here.

      It’s more truthful to say, “we observe quantum entanglement, but cannot fully explain it”, than to say it’s ’logically absurd’. I suggest ‘something from nothing’ should be treated in a similar fashion.
      I think that superposition and quantum entanglement are part of the "something" and that they are thought of as strange, has to do with observations of the behavior of things not regarded as strange - whereas - the idea of "everything that exists coming from something which doesn't exist" does fit into "logical absurdity" in that we do not observe anything coming from nothing, nor can we observe 'nothing' in any fundamental manner.

      Therefore, I do not see how we should treat these things in a similar fashion.

      Even if we accepted that the existence of this universe is a "logical absurdity" - I still don't think we can treat the idea of nothing bringing it into existence as logical or sensible.

      William: Re that, I just wrote this;
      [Replying to Clownboat in post #302]

      Rather, I am pointing out the natural tendency of humans to go the way of theism, and whatever names they come up with in that process, whether they know it or not - they are speaking about the same one real entity
      Sounds like some pet theory of yours.
      Sounds can be distorted through... "you know who".

      What I am doing is following the premise that we exist within a created thing, therefore the implication is creator/creators.
      The question of GOD comes through the theist branch, and there are many theories which require alignment.

      Can you show that all religious people are actually speaking about the same entity?
      I cannot speak for religious people and their particular beliefs on the matter.
      I can show the similarities they all have, which is what I am pointing out.

      You also claim that the entity is real. How did you come about this knowledge?
      I treat the entity as real re the premise. I do so in the spirit of Thought Experiment.

      Human psychology explains nicely as to why humans from all over the planet have assigned agency to what they see around them. There is no need for a there to be a real God for this to be explained.
      Human science re psychology merely scratches the surface, and the deepest level so far achieved through that branch of Human Science is hinted at by Jung.

      These are The Archetypes and represent the voices within - those heard and those which exist to be heard if the Personality engages with their subconscious realm - a realm normally ignored due to viability issues, due to the lack of visibility of said realm within said Personality.

      It's like you are acknowledging that different groups of humans throughout human history have all come up with god concepts to explain the unknowns, yet reject the psychological mechanism in place of pretending that all humans got their god right and they all happen to be talking about the same god in the end (Yahweh).
      Well - my investigations re that are ongoing. I see no better example of an all-rounder that fits the bill, other than YHVH. I am open to alternate suggestions...

      Psychology explains this better then all the god being real and the gods being the same God as you suggest.
      As pointed out, Jung gives us enough information on this re the subconscious realm. The rest must therefore be up to us - as individual Personalities - to examine the knowledge and possibly find that connect.
      Over and above our internal Archetypes, their/there is One - and the Personality can find themselves reflected in that internal mirror.

      YHVH - as it works out - fits the bill re the overall idea that there are "no other archetypes apart from me"...when all is said and done...no "God over Devil/Devil over God" routines. Split Personalities are less useful to both the individual and to YHVH and to the host of aligned archetypes...

      Humans do what humans do. Without the gods as far as we can tell.
      Best not assume either way then, and git about doing what humans best do...

      Anchor Points: The Underlying Mechanics - [LE LINK] Clearly we have enough to work with here on this Planet, which can help us understand that there is actually meaningful communication to be had with the Mind involved in the process of evolving life-forms - humans [and human language] included - even if the system used is simple [primitive]. We use what is available.

      William: Re that, this is why the Archetypes presented the vision [visitation event] in the form of an ET. The visitor was not human-looking, but ET-looking. That was obvious in the presentation/imagery.
      But what you are alluding to has something to do with my knowing this entity way before I began the human experience and endured the subsequent formation of a Personality specific to that Human experience..."before I was Human, I knew you"...

      William: Yes. It is from such incidence - sourced within the Human Psyche - that the theatrics are produced and acted out in "Visions".
