Yeah, it is clearly effective to use empiricism and the scientific method to understand the rules that govern this reality, and what its history has been. No argument there. At the same time, despite the fact that we can discern the laws that govern it all, the laws that don't appear to be derivative from others seem pretty arbitrary. It may well be that an intelligence has chosen an arbitrary set of starting rules, and a starting condition, and possessed either the computing power or the foresight to know sort of where those rules and starting conditions would lead.
Could be. That sounds like something I might do, and if I would consider doing it so would many others who have bigger energy sources.
Continuing on the supposition of the game analogy (which is speculation of course, but seems like it has a good chance to be true), and you accept the premise that you may have willfully limited your consciousness to "forget" for the purpose of the game, how would you know you were here to play it or not? That may be the point... starting from a position of ignorance.
I cant know for sure, but many things give me clues about why I'm here, my metaphysical parts not the Human body.
I dont resonate with the metaphysical energy on this planet. I'm from somewhere else. I dont know where, except its not here.
I vaguely remember a few things that may have happened before I came to Earth. I saw Earth or this form of reality as a blob of many colors of lights that for a long time has been unable to expand to intersect the structures farther away which also look like blobs of light. I dont know if these structures were galaxies or metaphysical or some combination. Its a vague memory and maybe it was just a dream but it felt like more. It looked stuck like it wanted help to expand. I was with a friend up there who warned me that I keep going down there to do something but not get it done, and then I keep trying again. I responded that if I cant get it done (whatever it was?) this time, I'll leave it for others to do eventually, and me and that friend will do what we had been planning which is in a certain direction far away. I went down. I dont remember what happened after that, except I think I became Human or joined with my Human body in a stronger way.
Theres a danger of following any vague memory or thing that cant be verified, so I leave that as what may have happened, but its not relevant to what I must do now and going forward. I decided the only safe way to choose your future is on what you know is true here and now.
So if I did come to Earth to "crash in the Yukon halfway there, and live there for 2 months" or for "talking to roadies" or whatever "something that happens accidentally in the process, and appears to be background, but is really crux", I must cancel those plans and make new plans in the moment. I dont want to have many pieces of my mind working independently of eachother, hiding information while other parts of my mind choose in ignorance. Its not a good way to live, on Earth or metaphysically.
In year 2003 when I learned metaphysics from nearly nothing to strong telekinesis in 5 months, it was a "wild ride" hard to describe. During it one of the most fun parts was I shared my experience of music with thousands of other spirits at once, and they loved me for it and gave me metaphysical energy which I could use for anything I wanted. This relation between us grew over the months. I started to think that certain life forms out there were helping me with telekinesis only when I thought certain ways or wanted it for certain purposes or was a good person recently. This was not a good way to be, as I soon found out. When the telekinesis wasnt working, I would look to others out there to do for me what I had learned to do on my own. Soon I figured out something very surprising to me... When I finally met these spirits who I was asking permission for me becoming more advanced forms of reality, I was looking in a pandimensional mirror at myself. I had been asking myself for permission. From then on, I didnt have to ask. I just did whatever I thought should be done, and the metaphysics worked like a part of my body.
When people talk about my purpose on Earth without me knowing about it, I see that as another example of not communicating with myself when its needed, since all plans must continually adapt to a new moment of here and now. Maybe I thought something was a good idea before coming to Earth but then realized it doesnt work that way, or maybe I find a better way to do it, or maybe I decide that existing as a pandimensional field intersecting certain galaxies and places across metaphysics would help toward my goals more than staying on Earth. I cant live in a plan set in stone, for the same reason buddhism is against excessive attachment. So whatever plans I've made up to every moment of here and now, I should always cancel and rethink should I again choose to do those things or something else? I free myself from any obligations of my past self before I came to Earth.
