I would like to propose a question, if I may:
What kind of world would we LIKE to live in?
I for one, do not care about aliens, or spaceships, space brothers, prophecies, religion, or donuts. Whether we collectively "Ascend" and wake up
all at once, or whether Jesus, Buddha or the flying sphagetti monster come to visit and teach us enlightenment...I don't really care. It's all
aesthetics. If we want to go to Boston, it doesn't particularly matter whether we take a train or a bus.
So let's try to figure out where we want to go, ok?
First let's establish the ground rules: There are no rules.
Wherever we want to be, that really is ok. Anywhere. If we want to live in a world where everybody has jobs and enough food to eat, and there's no
poverty. That's fine. If we want to live in a world where aliens hunt us like dogs and eat us left and right, that's ok too. If we want to live in a
Star-Trek style universe in which we explore the galaxy in giant spaceships, no problem.
Let us not pass judgement on our collective desires right now. Let's just figure out what they are.
Personally, I want to live in a reality with no limitations other than those I choose for myself at any given moment.
Being unable to see through solid objects is a totally arbitrary limitation. Being unable to instantly alter form is an arbitrary limitation. Being
unable to perceive what's going on in neighboring galaxies right now is an arbitrary limitation. Being unable to see what was going on, and what will
be going on in neighboring galaxies plus or minus ten thousands years is an arbitrary limitation.
Even the notion that there ARE neighboring galaxies is a completely arbitrary limitation.
What if I don't want there to be neighboring galaxies? I'm conceiving of a 'reality' in which it's completely reasonable for me to decide that
there are no neighboring galaxies, and therefore there aren't. Do I 'destroy' them with this conception? No! Not at all. They simply don't exist
in my pereption. There is nothing to 'destroy.' And...anyone else who happens to exist within their own perceptions is similarly able to choose what
they do and do not perceive. To choose what is and is not 'reality.' No interference with free will is necessary for this conception to exist.
Consider this: Do you enjoy scary movies? Do you enjoy Shakespearian tragedy? Maybe you do, maybe you don't. But it's certain that some people most
definitely do. Is it 'wrong' for people to enjoy such things? I would say no.
So...let us then ask...is it 'wrong' for "God" to appreciate the observation of 'scary' and 'tragedy' on a cosmic scale? I would also say no.
Consider the perspective that 'bunny rabbits are cute.' Is that a 'proper' and 'holy' perception? Is it 'good?' Consider a different
perception: 'bunnies are uncaring, indifferent biological machines that kill and consume living vegetables in order to survive.' Is this perception
not also, 'valid?' And here's another perception: 'bunny rabbits taste good.' Simply as a matter of possible perspectives...aren't all three of
these perspectives possible? Are humans 'evil' because they kill and eat cows?' Well, from the perspective of a cow, that may well be a reasonable
perspective. I won't discount it.
But from the perspective of 'God' enjoying reality as we might enjoy a good stage play, does not the entire spectrum of happy, sad, comedy and
tragedy all have a valid place in perception? If I, as a human, can enjoy both a funny movie as well as a scary one, isn't it reasonable to suggest
that 'God' may similarly be capable of 'enjoying' both the possibility of collective human ascent as well as the complete and utter genocide of
Let us not limit our potential based on preconceived notions of 'good' and 'bad.' Let's ask ourselves want we really want.
I for one, do not want the genocide of our species.
But...I ALSO DO NOT WANT the 'utopia' conceived of by some, where everybody has a job and nobody starves. I perceive that as an entirely limited
conception, and I want no part in it. Why should we all have jobs? I don't want one. I don't want to be limited by something so trivial. I don't
want to be limited by my eyes, or my body, or this world, or the space containing it. These things are all completely arbitrary. We've been there.
We've done that.
I want to exist without limitation. I want to be able to experience what it is like to fly through the skies in this body...and in the next moment
disintegrate the body and perceive all of the world simultaneously from the perspective every every atom collectively. I want to play with human
history, and create new timelines in which I test to see how things might have turned out if Hitler had been a better painter, or if whales had become
the dominant lifeform. I want to be the spirit to which college students speak through a Ouija board. I want to visit Venus and offer the Venusians
awareness of the concept of kisses and nuzzles from playful, happy ferrets. I want to create entire universes with rules of my own choosing, and
invite other consciousnesses to live and play in them. I want to be the author, and I want to step in and out of the story as I choose.
This is the 'world' I wish to live in. The 'perspective.' The 'consciousness.'
I'm tired of all these silly rules and arbitrary limits that we've been putting up with all this time here on earth. They're stupid.
Let's get rid of them.
