I found another book to read that is a channeled message from beings far from our physical location here on Earth. The group of beings goes by the name “Frank,” which I think makes it easier for us to consider what they have to say.
Their names (individually and collectively) may be too difficult to pronounce, or so outside of our bounds, that we would be unable to keep them straight. This is the way I think about Russian literature – all those names of all those people…. geesh.
That’s an interesting thing to ponder – “alien” names evoke fear in some people, many people perhaps, and the name Frank (in American English) is sort of low key, nonthreatening (at least to me). So if you are a group of beings who are gentle and want to make contact without frightening everyone, then selecting a name like Frank would probably work ok. I’ve only read the preface by Mike Molloy. I guess he’s a fairly familiar well-known spirit teacher from here on Earth, though his name is not immediately familiar to me. I’m interested in seeing what the Frank is going on! 🙂
Listening to Mythosophia podcast with Jeffrey Kripal talk about the many experiences Mark Twain had involving clairvoyance – his brother’s death and funeral as well as several others. Twain had enough experiences that he wrote an anonymous essay for Harper’s Magazine about it. They rejected the article because he wouldn’t put his name on it. Well, they didn’t reject it outright! But in the end, he didn’t put his name on it and I don’t believe it was ever published.
Twain became very interested in communication technologies of the time – the telegraph and the burgeoning study of radio. He thought these were parallels to his telepathic experiences. Then Kripal said something really caught my ear – he said that it could only go so far in parallel because energy of the electromagnetic spectrum degrades over distance but thought-energy does not. It is interesting that the two types are compared at all – one being in the realm of science as provable fact (electromagnetic spectrum) and the other being thought-energy which is known but still cannot be proven. We don’t have any instrumentation that can detect or measure thought-energy. Actually, that may not be entirely true – if research is correct, there is a correlation between types of brain waves and recordings of jumps of a needle responding to those brain waves. Scientists seem to think there’s a connection between brain waves and thoughts, though the mind may not be concerned with the brain at all!
So I think I had this in mind when I was cruising around Amazon (not cruising around THE Amazon – the other Amazon) for a book to read. I know I have a lot of books already but… that’s how I am. I should get rid of some of those I will likely not read ever. But I digress…
So in Frank’s book, they are like eight billion or trillion light years from Earth and are making contact with an Earthling who can translate or transfer knowledge into written form. Physically, for us, the degradation of “physical” energy would be such that we could probably not have contact with Frank from our side. Eight billion light years is a long way. But energetically – with no decrease in strength of signal – we could have communications with other beings. If we knew how to do so. I guess having a book shows that someone knows how to do it!
Another thought I have – I wonder if as people we love pass from this Earth plane and are in another dimension, that their “side” of things becomes weaker. In other words, does a departed person’s “memories” of us in this physical place (Earth) fade? If our memories of loved ones fades for us, do we fade for them as well? Our connection in this dimension has changed, so maybe their attention in a different dimension takes up their time and so memories of an Earth-time existence fades into the background of who they are.
I try to imagine how this might be for me. If I live in multiple dimensions – I’ll call them multiple or simultaneous lives – and if I say that I can only concentrate on one life at a time (this goes to the idea of consciousness being filtered by the mind!), then it goes that as I let go of this life, my concentration can be magnified elsewhere. Maybe I stop filtering for this life on Earth-time, and start filtering for life somewhere else. Could it be that the physical dimension is what the filter is? I have the Earth-time filter turned on right now as I write this. Do I do it to pinpoint experiences in this Earth-time to bring back to the Sum Consciousness? If I’m an extension of the Sum Consciousness, and I “grow” by having experiences, the filter for this Earth-time adds to my [the Sum Consciousness’] overall growth.
I think this idea could extend to other dimensions as well. Let’s say I’m also a being on a planet around a star in the Andromeda constellation. On that planet, maybe I’m also living, learning, and growing. My experiences there are filtered by the consciousness filter I have for that planet-time too. I could add in the idea that my “past lives” on Earth-time is filtered too. Not sure how that fits in the picture other than being outside of the confines of time and that parallels being outside the confines of space.
But why the filtering? Why does the Sum Consciousness need a filter? If it grows through the collection of experience, why is there a need for a filter? Maybe the Sum C isn’t using the filter – only I am using the filter to understand my own consciousness. Perhaps an analogy could be beneficial for this thought train – the difference between seeing an individual flower in a meadow full of flowers and seeing the entire meadow as a whole. Both are of equivalent value in terms of experience, both provide a chance to grow because of the observation of flowers and meadows. The analogy lies in this – my filter provides me a look at an individual flower in the meadow. The Sum Consciousness sees the meadow full of flowers.
OMG – One Tree One Forest!! :-O I see a tree in the forest but the Sum Consciousness (of which I’m a part) sees a forest full of trees! [I knew that there were reasons I chose this name for my blog, I just couldn’t find words to elaborate on the idea more. This might be one way.]
My mind is overloaded and I need to stop for today.
