Woo-Woo Time: As you know, I’ve done a tremendous amount of research into topics that most people call “woo-woo.”
In particular, I’m fascinated with bending space-time and “getting out of my head” being a prolific vivid dreamer. Vivid dreams are sensational (yes, with poor pun intended) but as I have just discovered in a revealing dream one night this week, dreams may serve a very useful function.
They may be a pipeline to waking-state Creativity.
Let’s back up to a snip from the Peoplenomics.com subscriber piece Wednesday of this week. It’s this idea poured from…
A Short Wednesday Woo-Woo
A couple of weeks back I posted (here, bottom of page) a note about some intense dream experiences. three dreams were described but here’s the one that matters to me today:”
“Third dream involved a cruise ship. Not a big one, but a small one that was using a crane to offload people onto a bridge. Don’t know what that one was about. Large bridge, ship off to the left (white ship) crane on the front of it has a kind of passenger bucket and the ship got close to the bridge and offloaded people. No idea what they were telling us (if anything). …”
Remember, this was posted July 16th.
Fast forward to yesterday (Tuesday, June 30) afternoon: there I was, reading an old Popular Mechanics when my eye caught this:
I just sat there for a moment. (Dumbfounded.)
Another one of those “Well, I’ll be…” moments.
The “dream signal” wasn’t perfect, because in the dream, the “bridge” had been of the sort connecting piece of land. And yet…there’s the ship and there’s its bridge…
Thinning of the veils between dimensions? Two weeks in advance?
Now fast forward to the reason I couldn’t sleep Thursday morning.
What woke me up wasn’t so much a dream this time, as an idea.
“You’re not looking at this ‘basket dream’ right. You need to look at what the timeline is telling you….”
As I laid there in bed, a slow realization dawned. Is it possible that some (large) measure of what we take to be “ideas” are not from the “here and now?” Could they be from….the future?
I rolled it around for a couple of hours. But it made sense, since I’ve been studying space-time so much lately.
In the study of space-time, you becomes familiar with the “arrow of time.”
If you picture the stereotypical hourglass, you can draw the analogy to how “reality happens” quite easily.
Picture in the top half of the hour glass that you have “The Future.” It’s a huge assortment of possibilities.
As “The Future” arrives, trickling down as the “sands of time” do as they transit the narrow part of the hourglass, you have “The Now” (The present instant.)
As “stuff” comes to us from “The Future” transiting “Now” on the way by, it falls into the past. Should be easy-enough to follow that, right?
Now the two insights from this “dream” of the ship’s basket moving people dream.
Did my “idea” to have that dream somehow get “triggered” by my “future-self” who would run across the article two weeks in its future? Did my “future-self” somehow telegraph the concept two weeks into the “nowness” of July 15th? Looking at a ship basket people-mover is a very low-probability event, I think we can agree.
That’s rather remarkable. It extensibly means that people with positive expectations of the future REALLY DO (at some level) “materialize” a better future for themselves than people who do not. Bet me a beer this isn’t what cuts losers and winners from what is otherwise the same cloth…
I’ve told you many times about MMT – the Miracle Money Technique – which our consulting astrologer so generously has shared online over here.
Oh, and by-the-way, YES, it really works – a personal MMT story in sec.
The main question (which I think I know the answer to) has to do with the symmetry of time. Understand that at a global level, there are an infinite number of possible futures. And, since we have a huge number of people with an essentially infinite number of “pasts” there’s a rough balance: Infinite Futures, Infinite Pasts. Or however many pasts 106-billion people who’ve lived have accrued.
The key point is: While an infinite number of futures (and pasts) exists globally, at the personal level there is only one future. Because we don’t have two pasts. Balance is maintained.
Sure, sure..you get the ‘”illusion of choice.” But as my picking out an ancient Popular Mechanics from my digital library demonstrates, my “choice” of what to read in the past week was already “baked-in-the-future-cake” on July 15 when the dream told me what was coming…
We each can choose any of the infinite futures, but in reality we don’t. And once we pick a future, it will be along shortly to become our past.
The “Arrow of Time” ensures symmetry. One past has only one future. But, as the practice of MMT (and prayer, too) teach us, we can “bargain with the future” (request, bribe, cajole, etc.) for a better present which in turn will build a more desirable past.
You want a desirable past. Because when we all get around to dying, as we all will some day, it is the “Past we’ve built” that will be scored in the just-after-death Life Review written of by Near Death Experience (NDE) researchers.
From Dreams to Life Review?
Yeah, it’s pretty heady stuff, for sure. We live life, grappling the whole time with “the Future” in order to experience a satisfactory Present, but the whole game is to collective a bountiful Personal Past. That way, you’ll have something good to show for your time in Life at the exit-interview/ Life Review. Which, Wikipedia lays out this way…,
“A life review is a phenomenon widely reported as occurring during near-death experiences, in which a person rapidly sees much or the totality of their life history. It is often referred to by people having experienced this phenomenon as having their life “flash before their eyes”. The life review is discussed in some detail by near-death experience scholars such as Raymond Moody, Kenneth Ring, and Barbara Rommer. A reformatory purpose seems commonly implicit in accounts, though not necessarily for earthly purpose, since return from a near-death experience may reportedly entail individual choice.
Experiences number up to eight million in the United States. Although rare, there are also a few accounts of life reviews or similar experiences without a near-death experience, such as during the simpler out-of-body experience or when under circumstances of intense threat or duress.”
One Last Detail
Once you really know at a deep, internal, heart-centered way that this is a “general framework” with how things operate – which is not inconsistent with any religion, since most refer to Judgment Days and such which could be religious-speak for the Life Review – Life begins to make far more sense.
We’re here to “grab good experiences” and “fertilize our Afterlife” if that’s not off-putting. Physics is non-denominational. It’s like people looking at a magnificent mountain like Mt. Rainer in Washington State. The Mountain looks one way from the foothills east of the Mountain going to Yakima. Another way, from the north, say around Puyallup. Again, from the south and west, it all looks like a “different Mountain.” Which to my simple way of thinking explains the multiplicity of religions…Same Mountain all the time. Different vistas, sunrises and sunsets…
The final detail is a “mental plug-in” to this taxonomy. If you look, you’ll see there are three general “classes of people” in the world.
Those who are Future-oriented (my hand went up, yours likely did, too…), those who are the “in the Nowness” and those who are “stuck in the Past.”
We can evaluate others based on our assessment of how they relate to this Big Schema of Life. At each level, there are those who get it, those undecided, and those who are clueless how anything works. Or, they just can’t deal with the data and have made up some gobbledygook.
As a result, since we become like those we hang around, there’s a simple “scoring system” which you can apply to people:
Green people I are collected as “friends.” People who are future-oriented are worth collecting even if they don’t have a clue on the physics of IT all.
Past-oriented people, with no clue, or simply wrong-headed ideas are quietly swept out of our awareness.
A couple of examples: An example of a Past-oriented person who “gets it” and is worth knowing would be a historian. A “Nowness” practitioner who gets it might be a Buddhist monk or a teacher of “letting it be” like Ram Dass (Richard Alpert) who’s 1971 book “Be Here Now” is worth reading more than once. As is Alan Watts’ book “The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are.” But, I digress.
Point of Nowness is letting Future take care of itself. As a control freak, I’ll be working Future over, thanks.
Work on your relationship with the future and demand from it only the best. Seems like the simplest route to a good Life Review when it comes. It’s also where creativity seems to come from.
People school, like fish. Hang with people who share your time-orientation. Learn to be future-directed because that’s where the Now comes from. Once experienced, “Nows” go into your history folder. Keep that folder clean and clear by following simple rule sets laid out by religions. Like 10 Commandments and similar.
Dreams can tell us of the future, even if they seem nonsensical. Unless you want to move people between ships.
“What About the MMT Story?”
Well, I have a medical operation coming up. Hernia. I was fretting and stewing about costs. Even with Medicare and insurance, when you get older, costs of operations can be non-trivial even for a simple hernia repair. You hear about people bankrupted by medical costs all the time.
After fretting and stewing for a bit, I figured my tripping was because I hadn’t nailed down the costs. So before tackling that, I did a bit of MMT/Future wrestling.
Then, and only then, did I make “the money call.”
“Why, Mr. Ure, your total cost will be a $295 co-pay plus whatever your prescription co-pays come to…”
I had concerns this might be $20,000 check time. Big checks make me grouchy. But no: We could afford hundreds of these operations.
I got a huge smile out of the experience…Thanks Future, Thanks Big Schema of Life.
Point is when doing MMT you have to expect that your “money miracle” can come in the form of a huge discount rather than Publishers Clearinghouse knocking.
Try it. And share this with your friends.
I did some more MMT Thursday. Two-hours later, I opened an invoice to discovery UrbanSurvival’s web hosting will be $200 cheaper this year. Funny how the Big Schema works, isn’t it?
