Cool thread, intelligent talk. Thanks for the Poe poem, don't remember reading it. Sounds like he's in the know lol.
For anyone who doesn't think it's possible we are in a dream, and who thinks they have the courage, you can face your convictions through the,
completely legal in most states, sage plant, salvia.(read about it) I had to try it a number of times before I understood it's full power. A
good-deep-long 2 hits of 10-20 xtract will completely reduce you to a conscious molecule, and throw you across the universe of fractured/perceived
realities. I don't condone this for anyone who is concerned about promotions and social acceptance. It can change the way you see everything.
For me personally, I have considered the idea some before. But never so serious and so grave as after salvia. I completely see how this world could
be no more than a dream, created by us, and the other 'atom structure' beings of consciousness. We dream each other up. Without me here, none of
you exist, but that doesn't change that an accident could take me from you leaving you here without me. Do you remember being born? How do you know
you were? Other people being born might just be our way of conceiving new people, and situations of joy/pain.
As far as reading books or hearing music from before our time, why not? Could our mind not conceive of a 'history' of great and low acts, a whole
dynamic? Our mind has thrown up a full stage theater, but where does your consciousness place you in it? You have no ability for art? Or you have
no access to such ability? The art is in you, you have conceived it and I as much as I have conceived you and it. Sounds really weird but why would
it not be possible?
And of waking up into other realities, Eww, I shudder still. We could all be in a hospital, or in our moment of death, the consciousness froze,
constantly trying to revert to re-live and change the course of our life. Maybe to move on to the next world, heaven or hell to some, we have to
recall exactly and with full awareness the moment of our death. I recently asked a family member who had been in a month long coma when younger, what
they remember about being out. And he replied, right before he awoke in the hospital, he remembered being hit by the car.
We could all be in a god like hospital, whereby this life is a fancy escape from the real pain, and when we let go and die, we awake to our true
trauma. Or maybe, a completely backward view. Maybe suicide is the only way out? Maybe to consciously chose to end your own life, is the only way
to realize the trauma of death, to break the cycle of repeating and reliving constant realities. But what do you wake to/ move to then?
Very deep question, and it can absolutely cause what normal people would consider psychosis.
