This is a response to some earlier posts, although it was a variety of them so I haven't quoted them. It has to do with how what we "perceive" changes
what aliens/faeries/etc. may seem to "be."
My ... theory. Although much of my experience is what has led to the theory.
A thought exercise, if you will:
Let us say that you have... a sphere of (white) light.
Now inside that sphere, let's separate that light into a prism of color-bands of the rainbow.
Imagine that some things and identities are existing or living in the green band. Some in the yellow band. Some in the blue band. And there are even
identities all along the spectrum, such as in lime and teal for example.
Of course it's all just white light. But depending on how you separate it (and it is immensely, if not near-infinitely, separable), the color is going
to be different. And every separable unit can also be combined with any other separable unit(ssss) for a yet-new variant as well.
Identity-X or Thing-X -- these being what we interact with, let's say "John" and "an airplane" and "a tree" -- merely exist
. They are part of
the assumedly-infinite nature of white light.
But from the "perspective" of someone in the yellow band, these are perceived and interacted with like this
-thing, and from the perspective of
someone in the teal band, they are perceived and interacted with like that
Much like wearing a certain color-filter glasses can make everything of that filter literally invisible, while making some other things barely change,
and yet other things seem to change considerably.
But the energy of things at root is the same thing
. It is merely that as time/space are perceptual not literal, the energy itself (be it an
airplane, person or tree) simply "exists." As there is only the here-and-now, then any given "perspective" one chooses -- a century ago, three shades
of color toward the blue, whatever -- those things in time or location or identity are merely perspectives-on-what-is.
So it becomes, in a way, a very literal but also metaphysical version of the blind man and the elephant
fable. When you are in teal, you are
only capable of perceiving and interacting with "the portion of energy which is 'Real' within the perspective-environmental of teal."
The same thing/person/event that you are experiencing, however, is equally present everywhere and everywhen; but whether it is perceived at all, and
how, as what, and even when and by whom/what, depends on the perspective.
What we perceive has as much to do with who
we are, and what
we are, and where
we are, and when
we are, as
the-thing-perceived. Experience is not something that happens at a single-point. All experience is the joining-point of at least two.
Objective reality is better called a consensus perspective
. For all useful purposes, it IS useful and seemingly objective if you are sharing
the majority of a perspective.
The moment that changes for any reason -- and there are many reasons and ways it can (changing any parameter of the who you are, the what you are, the
where you are, or the when you are...) -- the whole definition of "reality" tends to change.
You can model-analogy this like a big kaleidoscope. There are many pieces of many shapes and colors. Each turn of the wheel is a different
All the SAME shapes-colors are at play in every single turn of the wheel. In no turn does any of that "source energy" add or subtract or change, it is
always "here, now" and "there, then." There is no difference. But each turn, each perspective
, sees a different pattern, a different picture;
had a different experience
In some of those patterns, some colors fall behind others, so you get orange instead of the separate red and yellow that may be experienced at other
Or you get a shape that only exists through the overlap of 6 different shapes together (which then appear as that-one-thing, and all their-own-things
are now 'gone'). And so on.
Nothing inherently changed. There is no difference, in the source energy. The only difference is the change of "perspective."
We are all a perspective
. You, me, our animals, the trees, gemstones, the beings we call aliens and fairies and whatever else.
Awareness is all that is
, with increasing emergent properties and degrees within those. When that 'perspective' is merely
consolidated-awareness we call it a thing
. When that awareness has the emergent property of sentience, a sense-of-self, we call it an
. When it has the emergent property of autonomy, we call it an entity
. All are perspectives.
Many would say trees and cats are both in the middle 'identities' group. But some people would say trees are merely things. And others would say cats
are actual entities. It depends on the person's perspective, how those energies "are perceived" to them. Neither are wrong; they are correct within
the framework of their perspective. Everything is different when you are different.
The "energy-that-is" inside our kaleidascope, is that same energy that is also the perspectives experiencing it
. The universe is experiencing
There is no difference.
As space/time are perceptual, there is not really an inside/outside or thing-being/other or then/now. Those are simply
we are is humans. So that's a huge filter. Changes in our brain chemicals or elsewhere in our bodies can change that too. Our formative
experiences become part of that, culturally and individually, as psychological filters and nervous system blocks are within the physical body.
we are has things such as chakraic and spiritual development involved.
So those two variables are unique to the individual, although the "What" has a huge amount of overlap with others around us. Where
we can be shared.
Since at least half these variables are going to be at least a little bit if not completely unique to the individual, it means there isn't really any
such thing as identical
-experience ("objective reality").
There is merely shared consensus
, where 'enough is similar' to give us an agreement about reality. What we share is not a reality
an agreement about
The world is different when you are different.
This is what 'my' perspective has taught me. Of course, it's probably worth what you're paying for it, since yours may be different.
