But still, I'll give the Americans the prize for fortune telling with the (rebooted) Battlestar Galactica for the glowing spheres down Blondie's spine. Interesting that it was not really explored as to the "why" in the story.
How the human body's spinal nervous systems and the location of interactive shared dreams and networked consciousness in some of the more ancient AIs is an interesting "co-incidence".
BigThink.com: There Are Biophotons in the Brain. Is Something Light-Based Going On?.
There was a thread that was closed asking about biophotons and Heidegger.
TEOT's thoughts: [Our] brains [are] a quantum [computer] using entangled [light] as one of several forms of communication. QE can happen across vast distances and many particles can be entangled. We have the "knowing-that" (Dreyfus) but not the "knowing-how" (or what the scope of entanglement is. I will go so far as say 'galactic intelligence' or our good old friend "galactic Schumann resonance").
We are beings of light frozen in a meat bag. That we have access to the full spectrum through various access points makes more sense than anything else!

Well yes, sort of. How'd you know that?
I'm hesitant to use the 'S' word because it is loaded with preconception.
Hypothetically speaking here . . . .
If one was going to design an organic organism of a human type for a low 'G' "organic subterranian type environment", one might create a fairly compact, female with a prehensile tail, bat like wings and big eyes and not a vegetarian.
Female, because without males, one controls numbers and can bring about the end of their race.
Now let's say they are not all under supervision, in that case, wouldn't they be looking for a way to procreate?
Thing is, Hypothetically speaking, sex is a organic physical process. So sex won't produce children outside the physical. Just think how many "dirty dreams" would result in "virgin births" if it did.
So these hypothetical girls would have to have sex physically to get knocked up.
Let's also say they are out of incarnation and desiring to live as is their right. They were created and are not of what one might call "normal" evolution (whatever "normal" means when it comes to evolving, to what? for instance.).
So such a being might go looking for suitable candidates and work out specie specific incompatibility issues on the road back to the wonderful world of life.
However, one might suggest they have the problem of growing up in an all female world. They might just view humans as having something important that they haven't got. That would be falling in love, courtship, having children and a family, husband/father role models. In short; the idea of moving from an all female regimented society to a male/female relationship society would be a huge thing.
Sadest thing may be that they may not fit the human ideal of a wife. They may fall in love but would a normal human male of worth reciprocate? Especially if they are a bundle of feelings and communicate on that level of honesty.
Your average human male probably wouldn't cope with feeling based honesty . . .
Hypothetically speaking of course.
How did I know? it just logically popped in my head when i heard the description. and their sex drive if i remember is very high when mating. berserker sex. lol.
All this talk about Shiva and the vedas and whatnot...
Ganesha is very real. Ganesha has a raspy, drawn out and and 'mechanical' voice. Curious about human consciousnesses as well, as I got the feeling Ganesha doesn't get to interact with human minds all that often.
My impression was that Ganesha was a sort of hyper dimensional awareness. Well, that's not quite correct either. I mean, all points in space/time are connected after all.
We're all part of a hyper dimensional object, and for some reason poking into 3 dimensional space, and having the "experience" of a human life. We come here without any memory of that hyper dimensional nexus that out awareness was drawn from. So for me as a 3-D entity, trying to describe a hyper dimensional entity is a bit like a 2-D "flatlander" trying to describe us.
In that (and similar places across the multiverse like parallel universes) there likely are entities that can and do reside there. When we manage to interact with them they take on certain avatars. Ganesha is one such avatar.

We're not "allowed" to have fusion on Earth.
Unless it happens to be a secret of how to travel to the stars via time.
Everything is connected and at the highest level, and is one and the same. Ganesha experiencing me would be like me looking at a skin cell of mine under the microscope in fascination.
We don't realize we're all reflections of the sameness, and we over complicate life with silly cults, squirrely religions and intricate belief systems.
We are the same, you and I -- simply experiencing a unique 3-dimensional "simulation" (for lack of a better term). We all chose our experiences, even if they are painful ones. For, you see, in order for bliss to be known and felt, a contrast must exist. We should take some comfort in that, as it means that we are not stuck or static in our simulated experiences. We can (and do) shape them on a moment-by-moment basis through our objective perception of the "now".
There is no future, no past. There is only a singularity of "now". And in that singularity of "now" exists all the histories, memories, experiences, and famous moments through "time". The rising and falling of empires and nations, and the extra-solar adventures of mankind. All possibilities exist in the now; all experiences. When someone claims to have memories of a past life, the are dipping back into an infinite sea that has always, will always exists just beyond our awareness.
It is possible to "shift" from one observer-experience to another, changing the situation and path you find yourself on. Sometimes we do this unintentionally and notice odd changes to our perception of reality. Suddenly, for example a mailbox we swore was always red is now blue. A neighbors cat that had a black spot now has two. We are constantly creating -- and in a sense -- "procedurally generating" our experiences in a non-stop constant infinite loop.
There are techniques and ways to shift one's experience around. The methods vary by cultural background but they almost always involve aligning and syncing the subconscious, conscious, and supra-conscious minds as one. When all three levels of mind are as one and in agreement on a new direction, a shift is possible in perceptual awareness
The Earth's "status quo" would be rocked to its core with the introduction of fusion power. Entire systems would collapse overnight, and the resulting wars for power and control would do more damage than the positives of fusion would grant.
We, as a planet, haven't been deemed 'ready' for fusion power. As it is, the current power structure of Earth enabling relative stability is being held together tenuously at best. Believe it or not, Earth is actually experiencing the lowest levels of violence in mankind's history. Fewer wars, genocides, murders and violent crimes are happening than at almost any other time in mankind's history (on a per-capita, world population basis).
I mean, why risk the lives of all those RK'ers who are still needed (for the time being). I suspect in time, once the RK program is abandoned, if Earth hasn't transitioned to a new paradigm things like nuclear war may again become a real possibility. For the moment, however, Earth is safe and being "protected" from extinction-level wars and natural disasters.
