Alice in Wonderland - Caterpillar
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgbntWU7pG8&feature=player_embedded


Psychedelics have been known to alter cognition and perception.
Magic (Psychobilin) mushrooms, such as those eaten by Alice (in Wonderland), Mario (Nintendo Game) and
Terence McKenna (psychonaut), can deliver you to another hyper reality where magical feats are ordinary,
and the sense of sublime is indeliby impressed upon the awestruck mind.


One does not need psychedelics to experience Alice's Wonderland where self definition and delusion
is commensurate to the extent of one's metamorphosis relative to self definition of ordinary.

In deep meditation and out of body experiences one can transcend the normal, and experience the sublime
dimensions of consciousness, where vivid dream worlds liberate the soul and beckons the nocturnal explorer.
Body morphing, teleportation, astral flying and extra-sensory abilities all reveal the fabric of dream worlds is malleable
as the changing thoughts, emotions and desires of the dreamer.





In contemplation and introspection one wonders whether the ego is the delusion.
Accepting that all these alternate reality experiences temporarily define self relative to the starship/light body vehicle
and reality paradigms, one persistent question remains:


Who am I?


Je pense donc je suis                     
"I think, therefore I am"   
                   
-Renι Descartes (French)


I am nothing (in the stillness of meditation)
and I am all that I am.
I am consciousness and potentiality.

I wrote this in reply to another forum (I'm a member of) being inundated with spam:

^



I would like to take the opportunity to point out that in our daily lives we are continually spammed with information.
Some of this information we can readily filter out as it appears non-sensical. How about those that aren't?

We are bombarded with commercials, infomercials, propaganda, media, radio, music,
health pubications, science publications, financial publications, religious publications, so-called news,
and other published/ distributed perspectives.

Without realising, we decide, de-spam and define all the time.
Why? because we think, we feel and desire.

We each decide what information has value to us, to either accept or reject as valid points of view.
Subsequently we filter information of reality all the time.
It is in this processing of information, we interpret what these perspectives and ideas means to us,
and thus arise our corresponding emotional responses.
Since the universe is made of entangled fields of information and energy, all these layers upon layers of self definitions
and acceptable cultural/society definitions constitutes our mental world, another metaphor "illusory perspectives".

In short, if your (internal) definitions and emotional responses about self relative to the world is liberated and joyful,
then your reality will be commensurately so.
Conversely if your self definitions is limited and fear orientated, then your reality will be commensurately so.


Quote
With our thoughts, we make the world

-Buddha









Spam, spam everywhere,
How you process it -take care!
Filter, file to make more sense,
Liberation or limitation commence,
As you define ideas.

Be the author of your story,
And main actor in full glory,
On a stage of make-believe.
Allow your senses to deceive,
Immerse yourself in role-play.

Meditate to know the inner you,
As the absolute unchanging truth.
You have the power and the key,
Creating joyful experiences and memories,
In the now-to-now choices.

I also have experienced several OOBEs where I look at a mirror and seen my own reflection:
wearing a fox half mask, as an older and younger versions of myself (female), a different female,
also as a brown skin man. I morphed my face & body in front of my bedroom mirror as well.

OOBE: Once I looked through a mirror in my computer room and saw a parallel reality.
I saw the other side of the mirror (different because it featured golden intricate swirly, loopy designs around the mirror frame),
the room looked more like a nursery room and I saw my baby & toddler here, the light was ambient soft light,
through the window a rural scene of green hills & valleys. 


I understood through these experiences and more,
we all change apppearances, scenes, personality and stories,
but the creative intelligence, the soul is eternal.

That's happened to me. If we take the concept that all is, 'now' in another reality, then I am also a black face, spikey alien, a young short haired women, and have also seen another version of myself, with more (and less hair).

Makes you think cool

Avatar meaning: A manifestation of a deity in bodily form on earth.
An incarnation, embodiment, or manifestation of a person or idea.
My avatar is an avatar because as dreamingod I can pick and choose roles as I please.
The ego is transient. The creative intelligence is omnipresent.


I don't recall if I designed or chose my reality;
maybe this amnesia is deliberate to enable oneself to immerse oneself in the experience of limitation... I don't know.

However reading other people's past life regression stories:
http://www.in5d.com/forum/index.php?topic=2564.msg3493#msg3493
it seems to indicate that our experiences are chosen and by self design.

My many lucid dreams, OOBEs indicate that I've experienced many lives as a human being in different bodies,
as different personalities and different settings/scenes;
whether they be past life, future life/possibilities or alternate reality ...
time is not important because the experiences and sensations happened in the present now moment.

I have recently experienced an awesome sensation of what I call "mind rush"
when I approached a mind vortex amidst a white background, and was inundated with the voices, thought patterns of many personalities.
Depending on the voice-data stream I focused on, I will be hit with that energy-force of the personality until I re-focus on another voice-personality stream,
the sensation of the mind rush continued until the next re-focus...

This was a mind boggling experience which caused me to start questioning along the lines of:
Are we each experiencing a data stream based on the ego determined by the thought patterns or perceptual propensities of that personality construct?
It is probable that the ONE universal mind can create the idea of multiplicity by custom designing personality constructs
and reality paradigms as role playing ground for imagination to run amok.

I wonder .....


Yes Barnowl I find mindself questioning, wondering, reflecting more and more...

Meditation, introspection, out of body/phasing experiences, lucid dreaming,
remote viewing and other modes of spiritual exploration enables one to
be more awake.

Quote
The word “Buddha” means “I am awake”
The last words of Jesus before his arrest in the garden were also “Stay Awake” (Matthew 26:38)
To be awake is to be fully conscious and fully aware

When one is more awake, one's sense of identity and perception of reality
becomes more elusive, and morphs from experience to experience until
the realisation is reached:
that self is the "I am" self awareness and creative intellligence with no fixed definition.
Identity is temporal, and only relative to the reality frame and personality construct being experienced.

Who I am?
What is reality?
What is the meaning of life?

One's perception of reality and the universe becomes more of an abstraction;
ideas upon ideas, their relationships to each other and their contextual meaning.
Value systems, morality, belief systems and corresponding emotional responses also is questionable.

Are there any absolutes?
Or is everything a matter of perspective?



The analogy of Source/God as being one consciousness server, partitioned into many operating systems, running many
virtual multi-player simulation games becomes more credible:

Source is the player, role-playing all the characters.
Each character is preset (personality construct), cultural programming sets the themes and most players are on auto-pilot -
repeating the thought patterns of cultural/belief programming.
Each player experiences their own perspective, subjective reality, perceptual illusion,
seemingly real by the engagement of your virtual senses.
When a player becomes aware that reality is not what it seems to be
and starts to question the nature of self and reality, the character becomes
more self aware and breaks away from the programming constraints/rule sets.

The player and the character start to merge, and more information becomes available.
The more self aware player through the characters in the game will shift the reality
and diminish governMENTAL control structures.
Subsequently more players will be released from the hypnosis of dogmatic belief systems.

Reality, characters are organised by idea relationships
similar to main directory, sub directories and filing systems.
Access different characters and virtual simulation games by intent,
or design/imagine your own.
You are the programmer, both the dreamer and the dream are caught up
in the drama, story-telling of the moment Smiley

A Dream Within A Dream

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow –
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand –
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep – while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

By Edgar Allan Poe

Leonard shows Penny a hologram of Earth > Solar System > the Universe


Leonard showed Penny a hologram of outer space (then they make out) The Big Bang Theory s6x5 - YouTube

The Big Bang Theory Season 5 Episode 6

Watch: 1.35 min to 2.27 min

The whole Universe maybe a hologram.
What we all experience everyday in 3 dimension may really just be information
on a surface located in the farthest reaches of our cosmos.

So it is possible that our lives are just acting out a painting on a largest canvas of our universe.

Dreamingod your poetry is great.

I love the 'spam' one... very astute.

A Dream Within A Dream is amazing and is what Christopher Nolan was going to put at the end of 'Inception'.

I also love the Computational Metaphysics and Vedic Metaphysics and really shows their equivalence and fractal nature of consciousness.

 I agree Bedeekin. Lately I have been studying the Vedic Sanskrit and have found that it has it's roots in Egyptian and Sumerian teachings. Like I have always believed, everyone is right, they just have their own ways of translating what they have to say. This is because they lacked the words and technology to reference exactly what they were experiencing and seeing.

Bedeekin,
Thanks for your encouraging words  smiley


My 12 year old son spends many hours playing online multi-player games.

He implements his gaming experiences in OOBE.
He has taught several of his friends to do the same.

He described to me that he can choose to activate his "Control Panel"
- This is a floating Control Panel that he can toggle on or off.
- Wake up Alarm (preset action at specified time before starting the game to help wake up the player)
- English (Translation)
- FAQ
- Guide
- Light on
- Check Point Save (save and can restore to last Check point)
- Clock (Earth Reality)
- Gaming Clock
- Golden Pen (to add to Control Panel)

My son has described experiencing many virtual gaming realities in his OOBE.
It would seem that any game, cartoon and movie available on Earth reality is available for him to experience.
This makes sense because all information systems is stored in consciousness.
He has experienced many years in the alternate reality while only hours has passed in the Earth reality.

His favourite reality is "D.J. Reality" because it is a reality that you can play games and readily
change from game to game consecutively. You can also choose from the available characters available or
custom design your own with whatever attributes you want.
This is his idea of heaven Smiley

I used to love playing Tetris years ago, until Tetris got a hold of me. I would close my eyes to go to sleep and all I would see is those blocks falling. I would awaken in my dreams and everything around me would be reacting like a Tetris game did. It got irritating, but was also a great focus technique. Once in awhile now before I attempt a Phase I will play Chuzzle or Mahjongg Dark Dimensions just to get myself a great focus visual as I am shifting to the NPR. Just one of the many different experiments I like to do.
 Thank You sharing!  smiley

I'm very familiar with the falling blocks when going to sleep... that's the down side to being the best at tetris.

I remember back in the N64 days, I had a friend who played Goldeneye non-stop, and he said when he slept he would just be running around in his dreams cappin people left and right.

Based on this, some years ago I tried playing flying games for about 2 hours straight before going to sleep in the hopes of flying dreams, but it never worked. I guess it only works when you don't expect it. Or maybe you have to play 10 hours a day or more.

Once again, Thank You for sharing this Bedeekin. I usually have to wind down for a couple of hours after driving a long distance because of this as well. It's good to see that there is a sensible description for what is occurring here. When I was younger in sales I would find myself pitching/selling in my Dreams. The pitch/selling wouldn't stop until I finally sold someone, lol. Songs do the same thing to me, but I learned recently that if you allow yourself to hear the song in it's entirety, that it finally goes away. A friend of mine who is into "Access Consciousness" taught me a great technique as well. She said whenever that occurs to say "By my act of will I return this song back to it's owner with 100% Conscious Awareness attached". This actually works quite well too.

Digital dreams or another way of interfacing with information systems and reality.
The hall of records that my son experiences in his OOBE/alternate reality resembles
something like this of the linked youtube video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfWiZsinYNc&feature=player_embedded#!

at frame ~2.20 min (1 scrolling panel)  and
at frame ~2.35 min (2 scrolling panels)
A computer graphical type interface.


One may eventually realise that what we all are experiencing is information systems and
CULTural programming in various modes.
By saying this I do not mean to imply that we are a mechanical process, because this will deny our free will.
However I will use the analogy of holographical computational process to convey how we organise ideas.


Quote
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)

Image = Information: is a symbol, has meaning, composed of bits/pixels
We naturally think in mental images (a picture is composed of bits/pixels = information).
Without organisation and interconnectivity there will be chaos!
Meanings arise from a pattern of thoughts and experiences.

Also if one accepts that time is only a mental construct of the mind relative to the reality that is experienced,
the only time is NOW > then all motion picture/personal reality are composed of still images,
complicated symbols if you will, superimposed on top of each other.
Time, frames, rhythm, periods, cycles (metaphors) are required to have our motion picture experience,
where all sensorial experiences are in sync with events (time based).


The accelerated rate of information technology development, quantum computational processes,
realistic HD resolution virtual simulation multi-player games, holographic techology,
smart mobile phone/multimedia devices, greater (GB) information storage capacity,
GPS technology, artifical intelligence, cloud information storage, greater information transfer-bandwidth
will indeed shape our collective reality and minds.
Terence McKenna's Time Wave Novelty Theory is in effect - in the context of information explosion and interconnectivity of minds.

I think we will inevitably turn inside out.
Our lucid dreaming state will be the main focus because all alternate/dream realities and physical realities
will coalesce until there can be no discernment between what is real, unreal and virtual!

Returning to first premises, we will ultimately realise what we experience
are ships (vessel/light body) and relationships
between ideas and forms/images; all are but mental constructs of mind.




Dreams Of Sublime

The ebb and flow of thoughts sublime,
Transcend the dreams of my mind.
Golden light bathes sapphire seas,
Indolently renewing memories.
Guilt and fear no longer cast,
Shadows which harbour painful past.
While ships chase stories they roam,
Heart compass will beckon home.
Divine light-eternal love shines,
Restoring unity, blissful mind.

Time is a mental construct.
There is no absolute time. The only time is the NOW that one experiences.
Our motion picture experience is composed of still images/frames containing many symbols (including words);
all made of bits/pixels of information, perceived meanings determined by the experiencer.
With memory we construct our U-ni-verse and U-in-verse,
our story and hi-story, so we can experience linear time with it's causality, past and future.
Our experiences in dreaming realities are not so confined to this structure,
and the passing of time can be experienced without causality; fragmented storyline.


Question
I have experienced teleportation in my OOBEs from my room to another place and outer space.
What is teleportation?
Could it be skipping any intervening frames and arriving at the frame of desired destination without the need of travel?
or
Changing your perception of needing to travel and just appearing at the desired frame in the story?


 
Refer to Flipbook animation, Flash Animation using frames, frame loop, symbols, timeline etc. 



I love the below (linked) amazing: Stop Motion | Whiteboard Animation - The Marker Maker
demonstrating how all things are first conceived with thoughts.

Watch and be aware of your inner space Smiley

Earlier this year I had a vivid dream experience/remembrance how I chose this reality frame.

I was a disembodied observer in the sky, observing the 3D Earth landscape below.
Next to me, is another disembodied witness; his voice and energy tone is that of one of my brothers in my current reality context/story.
Lets call him H.

H. asked me, mind to mind, and I clearly hearing his distinct voice, "How about this one?"
The scene below, seen in both top view and front view (depending on the focus) featured a flat terrain, dry orange-brown dirt,
with distant mountains and native Indians riding horses.
I dismissed it, "Nah, did it already..."
As if H. pushed the scene aside with his invisible hand, the scene misted away like an eraser wind dissolving the image,
immediately replaced by another 3D video scene of another landscape.

H. repeatedly asked me, "How about this one?" and again I gave the same reply. This happened over 7-8 times.

H. then showed me a scene that could be an Australian suburb, brick houses with green lawn and backyard and vehicles parked in the driveway and street.
I replied "Why Not?" then black screen......

It would seem that my method of selection was not very well thought out after all.
