I proposed that we, as singular representations of the greater, whole, consciousness, are subject to the confines of our own medium, our own
time/space and point of perception, or that we exist in this reality with your own two eyes.
At no point was it suggested that we should flit from consciousness to consciousness throughout various realities, only that there may be opportunity
to witness/experience a cross-over effect from an alternate time-line in your current time/space. Same place, people and items, different actions.
I, like you, can put a pencil down and be sure that it will be there when i get back, yes. This is our affirmative time line, compared to a parallel
alternate time-line where you perhaps had put the pencil in a drawer. My statement was that it could be plausible for these time-lines to cross now
and then and that we could be witness to the "glitch" in various ways if we are present in the exact right moment.
I can even be unconscious for many hours at a time at night, dreaming all kinds of crazy crap, yet when I wake up, everything is (as far as it
matters) back where it was before.
my dream hypothesis was that "all kinds of crazy crap" though, yes, can be just a dream state of your current physical consciousness' reality, may
also be our higher self transcending the limits of our current physical reality in order for one aspect of its consciousness to assist another in a
time of need.
some of these realities or universes may have different rules to their operation, like freewill, gravity and or the building blocks of organic life,
creating places unimaginable under conventional circumstances.
My consciousness defines the universe and there are no other potential consciousnesses of mine that I'm sharing it with. Two eyes, one consciousness
looking out of them, not 10 billion.
none of this was meant to state that you are effectively sharing your own consciousness here with any other version of yourself; only that those
exist and that we may unwittingly
experience proof of this on various occasions, from time slips, weird noises and
seemingly paranormal events to states of lucid and even day-dream states.
Being that we are all comprised of energy from the same source, I would argue that the universe indeed does define our individual consciousness, but
that our consciousness defines our perception of that reality. Like lets say someone here in this reality, this universe, is quiet and reserved,
introverted, and anti social, but when they dream, they go to a place where they are confident and full of life, in a different earth-like environment
with different goals and aspirations; in both cases its the environment (universe) that defines the awareness (consciousness), and then in turn the
awareness of ones environment that defines ones perception of it through its own unique experiences.
