First, when I said 'this is the projector', every thing is the program/projector. Your flesh, the air, matter, anti-matter, everything. If you need
to have a location for this, here would be the direct answer, and also floating in void itself, so technically nowhere. I doubt that is the answer you
want though, but that is life, and it is rarely what one expects, and almost never what one demands.
Now on to your human thought projection. Human is just what people on Earth call themselves. That term has little impact on what living entities are
in general. Do you think that extra-terrestrials are any different in that respect? Hardly. The mind is really the only 'thing' that can exist
outside of this system. That is what defines individuals, even hive minded species, and the mind/essence is what leaves once the flesh/form is no
longer capable of holding the mind.
Here is another example, think of the body as the hardware, the mind as the software and the soul as the power source that fuels the body and mind.
People constantly confuse the soul as the mind, which really isn't the case. The soul is basically what allows your mind to grasp complex concepts,
adapt to new situations, find your car keys, runs your autonomous bio functions (heart, liver, kidneys, etc.), and the more you reincarnate the
stronger your soul becomes, giving your mind the raw potential to become a 'better' person.
Your body is also better off. For instance, why do some people live to 98 years old, smoke, drink, work most of their lives, and are far healthier and
stronger than someone who has a number of debilitating diseases, is constantly bitter about life, but avoids drinking, smoking, then dies at 65? The
overall power of the soul is what contributes to this phoenomena, and the more energy the body has to better regulate its cellular reproduction, DNA
repair, toxin removal, immune response, and so on giving the individual a better opportunity to embrace life more fully.
The soul is what the mind uses to produce a proper form in order to house the mind (form covers energy beings as well as physical, where as body is
the physical variant) as it projects into this system as the offspring of the parents who combined their essences to create a new form for a mind to
This is not the only place minds exist. This and its infinite alternate realities is just one of many places minds can reside. The heavens, the hells,
and even higher realities than those are just some of the possibilities, but most people who even believe in a Heaven or Hell, just don't understand
the true nature of these places and that perhaps the general population is unaware of what truly lies beyond a 'physical' existance.
Did anyone ever think that it may be possible to be a sentient being composed of nothing but color, in a world that is it self just a sea of colors?
If one is self aware and exists, how one exists is far less important as long as they try to live up to their true potential (how one would do that in
a sea of colors is not within the grasp of my understanding, but that does not exclude the possibility).
What I am truly getting at here is that the depth and beauty of the projector theory of existence tends to be lost when one is more concerned about
where the projector IS, rather than contemplating WHY it is, and how does this relate to our true purpose as sentient beings in an existence of pure
potential. We are all extremely close to unlocking the secrets of what our existence truly is and what we really are, and by keeping an open mind and
at least trying to understand such a wide reaching concept as living in a computer, we can gain a greater appreciation of how beautiful life and
