I'm not going to say you are wrong, but your viewpoint might be a bit skewed.
My best definition of the astral is that it's like the end scene to Men in Black
, where every universe is in its own marble. When you project,
it's like instantly gaining access to all these marbles, in which you might find yourself in someone's fantasy world, or in another universe
completely separate from ours, where the inhabitants don't even realize you exist. Now, I suppose you could liken it to the internet when it was all
IP-Addresses and no website names, in that if you put the time and effort in you could keep an "inventory" of places you have visited.
Now, here's where being on the astral is different than the internet - on the astral, you are in control of the session. You don't like that some
entity or concept is bothering you? Banish it - pretend you have a sword and that it's vanishing like the mist before the dawn. Got a nasty feeling
about a place? Find another spot! On the internet, the stuff is there, until the site goes down.
If you want my advice - look into the authors Robert Monroe, William Buhlman, and Robert Bruce (well, don't look at Bruce's "commercialized"
stuff, as I found it to be a bit boring & repetitive). These were the people that to me, when I started researching the phenomenon, allowed a light
bulb to turn on in my head (it made sense). Monroe's original books, while old, had a little bit of everything. Buhlman, although slightly
commercialized, has some good info in his books with a similar view as Monroe, and finally, Robert Bruce's earlier books are a great resource.
