Form my own personal experiences of esoteric mystical states and dreaming, I can say at the very least, that experiencing the alteration of ones
internalised mapping of the earth's shape is possible as it produces very divergent sensations of orientation awareness that are in a 6th sense sort
of way, tangible to the psyche.
If one has only ever entertained a convex-earth Copernicanised world-view, then they do not have any reference of contrast as to how the psyche
internally maps non-physical feelings derived from logistic understandings of the earth's shape - assumed to be absolute and unchanging.
In other words the way one views the earth determines the kind of internalised/projected information one feels/perceives as orientational boundaries
and/or non-boundaries in a non-physical manner of mental sensations - akin to walking around with eyes shut... one will begin to get nonphysical
sensations of intuited boundaries or knee-jerk reactions - mental sensations regarding fabricated assumptions of borders which do not exist.
Even if one does not believe that alternate cosmologies/world views exist – as realities unto themselves -- such as the concave or flat earth
ones... this does not mean that they are not a valid perception to seek the experience of... In my own experiences of entertaining these world views
the worth of the implications of freeing the self from Copernicanism perception as an absolute became known to me. Thereby in allowing boundaries to
become flexible and changing the understanding that connections to alternate selves in realities where these cosmologies are entertained by the masses
became know to me. The dream state became richer in lucidity once understanding that the degrees of separation that prevent one form becoming lucid in
full swing are more or less due to the inability to maintain resonance with the worldview of the cosmos visited.
This is no to be taken lightly however... there are levels of intensity that come with lucidity that is not otherwise experienced by the average
dreamer, such as vividity of sensations both good and bad... sometimes one may feel pain as real as it exists in their waking life reality.
It also enables one to access the Akashic record of their past lives/alternate parallel lives in which these other world views were expeirinced...
this can occur both during meditation and even full blown internally perceived visions whilst awake, sort of like a portal in ones minds eye which
sees another world/timespace continuum akin to remote viewing. So there is lesser emphasis on these alt realities than the everyday perception that
one seeing it from. Thus operating machinery or driving a car is still possible and if one has to focus on other daily tasks the clairvoyant
sensations fall to the back with less emphasis but if one stops and focuses they will get tremendous insights about themselves as a soul.
there are some interesting variations of each as overlapping cosmologies that also parallel other ancient philosophers – some where the earth is
seen as a bowl and others where the earth is flat but with an underworld or hollow earth beneath.
When you start to dream about places and receive visions of past lives the relation to them as having been experienced can be unmistakable as well as
unbelievably novel, like nothing one would have ever been able to imagine based solely on what is known in their current everyday waking life.
If one understands the mathematics and alternate interpretation of alternate world-views and why they are mathematically irrefutable, and therefore
entangled in a macro equivalent of the quantum measurement particle/wave problem... then there exists the same consensus reality in all three prime
models of the cosmos...
If infinity is infinite, surely it is infinite in every possible way imaginable, thus these notions fall under such a category of probables that all
three models are operating simultaneously and enmeshed to various degrees.
In the words of an anonymous poster:
"this earth reality exists in a hyperdimensional simulation that is flexible enough to model an earth/horizon/atmosphere/space system that can shift
between concave, flat, and convex -- as apparent to any simulant (us). it is also flexible enough to simultaneously convey different models to
different individuals. and it is not a question of whether an individual can choose a particular parameter (concave, convex) at a given time.. rather
the individual IS the system he/she experiences. if you have [recall having] experienced ONLY convexity during your existence, then the simulation is
"playing dumb" with a simple, fixed world model. think "the matrix". physical reality (and the natural laws that SEEM to govern its behaviour and
evolution) is as dreamlike and vaporous as the changing ZEROS and ONES in your favourite first person video game."
