I have some questions about the brain and mind, the nature of the awareness we experience on this side of the veil versus the awareness our entities have, and the degree to which our memories contribute to who and what we are as individual beings. I’m particularly curious about the continuity of awareness at the time we move back to our entity at death.
Experiences, whether they are remembered, forgotten, or even repressed, seem to leave their marks on us; memories are tied to changes in our brain. So how does the non-material entity—without a brain—perceive them? Where do they go when they go to the entity?
The mind forgets; the body remembers. You are more like an octopus than you might think. You remember that not too long ago we spoke about how an octopus can have specific brain functions within its tentacles rather than just in its head. Humans are much the same.
I’ve spoken to you about your having three brains, because brains really are just a bunch of nerve endings that have been specifically grouped for particular behaviors within the body. So you’ve got a heart brain, you’ve got a gut brain, you’ve got a head brain.
Your head brain registers your pictures, but it’s not the only way you register your memories. Do you understand the difference there? Your picture of a memory is different than the memory itself, which holds so much more than the limited perspective from which you look back and recall a still picture that, as you think about it further, opens itself up more. That’s because when you’re thinking about it harder, what you’re doing is accessing more of the physical memory of it, because your body holds the stories.
So how does that work with an entity, with the Spirit you are? It can access without all of the “human” processing you put around it, and it accesses it simply because it’s energetic frequency.
You attach a lot to your memory, but the fact of it is, a memory is simply a set of frequencies: one piece is stored in one area, there’s another area for another piece, and another area for the next piece, and you then pull them all together. The entity has access to all of that. It’s not limited by it. However, what the entity does not have, which I would tell you is a great advantage, is the human emotional relationship to it. The entity looks at the computer program; the physical body runs the whole process, the program itself.
The entity, I assume, retains an awareness of information that it accumulates. It’s more than just a machine that reacts in the moment. It must retain some sort of information too.
The entity does not retain anything. It doesn’t need to. It can access everything, but it does not retain it. It just accesses what it needs.
Remember that your human experience is simply a projection of your personality. The personality molds the energetic frequencies into a specific shape, and that shape is determined by the experiences of that human, of that chosen vessel. There is so much that goes on that is vital to the human and not at all vital to the spiritual progression of the entity.
When you die, after a certain amount of rest—it usually takes three days, more or less, for you to fully leave the body—your personality reintegrates into the entity. This personality reintegration usually is complete after three or four months, depending upon what’s gone on with the individual and how hard it is to release that personality. Until then, the personality is sort of like a computer filled with programs that it’s incessantly running as it is working to hold on to what it thinks of as life. At that point of reintegration the personality becomes like a book in a vast library, the book of David Thomson, and any time the entity wishes, it can go to the book of David Thomson and access whatever information it needs.
Your memories are how you hold on to your humanity. Your entity doesn’t need that.
It’s very hard to conceive of awareness as progressing through time without involving some kind of memory of what happened in the previous instant.
What would the entity want to get from that volume called David Thomson?
Well, for instance, David has mastered many things in his life, and it might be that there is another projection going on that could make use of that mastery. And that projection has reached a point in its own awareness and perspective that it would be able to access that. So, through the entity, it goes through that library and finds the David Thomson book and flips it open to where David has mastered whatever that personality needs.
What about when human experience is distorted or made unnatural by mental illness, when a person cannot even perceive the reality around them accurately? How does that affect the entity?
All right, first, what you are saying is fraught with problems. Can you come up with what they might be?
Who can say what reality is?
Who can say what reality is? You started out assuming that mental illness means they are not “normal.” You are suggesting that their reality is not useful, and I disagree with that. What I would rather you ask is, “What about people who experience the world radically differently, people who medical science today would say are, for instance, experiencing psychoses and are broken from reality? What does that mean with regard to the way the human processes energy and when the entity makes use of it?” Does that still honor the question you are asking?
Yes, I think it does. My concern was primarily with things like paranoia and dementia, and I get your point about those realities being different but not wrong.
Any of them are different, not wrong, except when judged by certain social standards. Someone who is considered nowadays to be out of touch with reality and needing to be shut away was at one point considered the oracle for miles around, and well worth listening to. A lot of what is considered neural divergence has to do with society’s misunderstanding and being ill-equipped, particularly in the West, to deal with such things.
Every living human is experiencing a reality that works for the journey they have taken, but it’s not based on what the world wants to see. It’s based on the blueprint. It’s based on what that soul, what that Spirit, needs for its next step. I have said over and over that you are the center of your universe and all those around you are characters within your production. Some of them have an important role and some of them do not.
Many, many times somebody’s dementia or head injury or strongly neuro-divergent processing system is not nearly as much about that soul as it is about agreements with the people around it—those areas in which one universe overlaps someone else’s universe. So a compact is made. David to Paula: “We are going to make this connection. There’s going to be a point in which this happens. Will that work?” “Yes, because I can use it for this purpose.”
So what you’re saying is that when we try to fix whatever it is by medication or whatever, we are actually interfering in a process that has been chosen.
No. It’s very, very different to choose being psychologically unbalanced or psychotic in the fourteenth century than in the twenty-first. When you take the dive into when you are going to be, you are also choosing all that is available then. If all you wanted to do was experience the plague, then you would pop into what, the fifteenth century? On the other hand, plague is in this world right now, and there are a few countries that regularly have a bit of bubonic floating around. But why is it you don’t hear about it? Because your science is one-hundred percent different now, and when somebody comes up with those symptoms, the medical people say “Oh, here is what we need to do. Clean up, clear out, medicate and bring about health,” something that could not be done centuries ago. So if it’s available to you in your time and place and you’re not making use of it, you’d better have a pretty good reason, because you chose this time and this place.
Now, having said that, the bad end of your current medical revolution, like anything you’re at the very start of, is that there are a lot of times you really should just let things go. Your ninety-one-year-old mother really doesn’t need to go through eight rounds of chemo, really! But it is possible, and it is available in this time. So don’t misunderstand what I’m saying here. But the basic answer to your question is, it doesn’t mean you should do nothing and let it take its course, because you’re in a time in which there are options.
This interview was based on a perception I had of the projection being sort of an information gatherer or reporter for the entity: “Go experience this, send back your experiences and the entity will benefit from that.”
Which is true.
And that’s what led to my curiosity about distorted perceptions of reality here. Is that bad information going back to the entity?
It’s just information. It’s not bad information; it’s just information. The human is having a full experience; it’s not simply a vehicle. It’s having its own experience. You make decisions on what to do with the successes you’ve had in the past or the disasters you’ve had in the past. You learn from those. You grow, you change, you extrapolate and leap forward, or extrapolate badly and leap backwards. You are you, having a full, powerful amazing experience, and the higher the frequency you work at, the more the entity is able to work through the human, which is what you’re after. It’s always good, but sometimes you don’t realize it’s good until you get away from it. It’s not human versus entity, and it’s not that life is ever wasted, because the human isn’t the entity.
So the entity’s focus is to expand spiritually by putting down these projections and then pulling back these multiple experiences.
I’m not sure I understand how these multiple experiences are going to help the entity grow.
When you were a toddler, life was very, very different than when you were a teenager, which was radically different from the first time you got married. Which was a whole other life from the period before you met David. All of this happened within one lifetime. Use that as your illustration. A personality in a toddler stage, a personality in a teenage stage, and yet another stage after that, and it’s all going to bring information to the entity to make use of, just as the adult you are right now looks at all of your different lifetimes within this one life and pulls together what you need in order to move forward. It’s pretty much the same.
On a human level we would call that wisdom.
I agree with that. For the entity it’s just wisdom at a much higher level, because it has an even greater perspective.
Is that because the entity is outside of time and it has access to everything all the time.
Yes. It doesn’t need time and space to put a mark on the experience. Therefore it’s a memory.
I was running into difficulties while putting these questions together with the idea of time and space, and how experience that happens here doesn’t transfer well to the other side of the veil.
That you are assuming does not transfer well.
One question that came up for me regarding time is about the value of our time and what effect it has on us, at the level of the entity or even at the level of the personality, when it is “wasted.” You know, the idle things that we do that we don’t even remember doing, particularly when we’re eighty years old, things that don’t affect our lives, that don’t affect our thinking. Like playing a computer game: it’s basically an hour of my life gone and I haven’t benefited from it. So what about wasted time? Is it wasted?
There is no such thing as wasted time.
Then what is its value?
What is the value of time when it has not been spent productively? That’s a very privileged statement. Your judgment of what you do, how you spend your time, what its value is, is unique to you and comes out of the community or the society you’re are a part of. So if you are a part of a society that says that when you are not making money twenty-four hours a day, or you are not cleaning your house or completing this project, you are not making wise use—even good use—of your time, then you learn that you’re wasting it.
And so the first thing that you want to look at is, why are you considering it possible to waste time? How are you judging it as wasted?
I said earlier that the mind might not remember, but the body does. The mind forgets, the body remembers. Everything that you do, that you think, every bit of the input you are receiving, even that which is beyond what your current abilities allow you to recognize or measure, it’s all there.
Now, there is only so much space in the Lake of the Known, so you are constantly filtering based on your belief system, filtering out those things that don’t look like they’re going to be in the Lake of the Known because it’s crowded. That does not mean they are never accessible. It does not mean that they’re not a part of the processing you have gone through to get to a very important decision, let’s say, based on what you think is only about these memories and qualities that you can consciously pull up. You’re actually basing it on much, much more. Nothing is wasted. Nothing.
Having said that, suppose you know that you must journey from Lexington to Louisville in two days because you have some very specific things you need to do there, but instead you find a thousand and one reasons not to go there yet; you find a thousand and one reasons to hold off, to wait. You might even convince yourself not to go at all! In that case everything keeping you from the journey is “wasted time.”
Until you go to Louisville and do what it is you’re trying to do there and get yourself back, everything in your life is focused on that journey, and you have the choice to ignore it, which I would call a spiritual waste, or follow through with it and get yourself to Louisville, do what it is you’re there to do and get back.
So spiritually speaking, people do waste their lives. Your life is made up of a quantum of time, which is the only way you register it. But you’re not wasting it physically. You’re here, and that’s never a waste. Do not misunderstand; do not think that being quiet and not doing work cannot be useful. When you start thinking that you can waste your time, put it on a spiritual state, not a societal one—How is what I am doing working toward my ultimate purpose?—and judge it by that.
