For quite awhile now, I have been going on and on about my vivid dreams and the process of dreaming, ad nauseum. Not only have I given detailed accounts to what I have seen, I have also described many thought-experiments on the creative and the philosophy bent. Well today, I am going to talk about it in concrete scientific terms. Up until this point, many of you have probably thought all this dreaming nonsense is just an artist’s over-active imagination, not to be taken too seriously. Well—
Get a clue. It’s important.
Reality coexists on multiple levels, and what we can see and hear only exists in this tiny band of what we know of as REALITY.
Reality may be nothing more than what exists in our mind, and what we think of as reality. In fact, what we think of as our fail-proof faculties and senses don’t even see the bulk of what’s going on around us! As the graph shows, so much of the world around us doesn’t even register in our realm of experience. Yet, the only gateway to that otherworldly realm lies in our ability to tap into another wavelength of reality, and we need to re-tune our minds to be able to receive and process the new signals. We do this via a process called bioelectromagnetics, using crystal calcifications in our pineal gland. But be forewarned. It is not a tame world.
Have you ever thought that perhaps all the crazy people around us, the psychotics, the schizophrenics, the ones tripped on acid—just perhaps—they’re not so much crazy as they have somehow accidentally tuned into another way of sensing things that are not within the vibratory wavelength of us ‘normal’ humans?
R.D. Laing, the famous radical psychiatrist, said: “Mystics and schizophrenics find themselves in the same ocean, but the mystics swim whereas the schizophrenics drown.” The schizophrenics drown because they think that what they see can’t be real, and therefore they turn into blathering idiots because they cannot reconcile in their minds, the various levels of reality that they find themselves caught in. They are stuck in between worlds, so to speak, and that is no place to exist. There has to be a more systematic and scientific approach to all this, and there is.
To understand and study this idea of multiple realities via the laws of physics, a group of scientists have been able to holographically reproduce a tiny corner of the Universe that acts and exists exactly as our universe would. *
The problem with all simulations is that the laws of physics, which appear continuous, have to be superimposed onto a discrete three dimensional lattice which advances in steps of time…What they find is interesting. They say that the lattice spacing imposes a fundamental limit on the energy that particles can have. That’s because nothing can exist that is smaller than the lattice itself…It turns out there is exactly this kind of cut off in the energy of cosmic ray particles, a limit known as the Greisen–Zatsepin–Kuzmin or GZK cut off…the cosmic rays would travel preferentially along the axes of the lattice, so we wouldn’t see them equally in all directions. **
A good example of this is Ava (Airport Virtual Assistant), a holographic image of a friendly New York airport hostess who answers questions and gives good advice to travelers. Ava is just a tiny taste of our understanding of holograms in this reality. *** If you can wrap your mind around the fact that you can literally see and interact with Ava, then wrap your mind around the idea that all the objects and scenery around you can also be of a holographic nature.
The fact that I can control many aspects in my dream-state demonstrates quite clearly to me that I can consciously function in these other dimensions of reality, much like how I function in this reality. The only difference is, in my dream-state, I am actually far more powerful than I am in the reality that I know of as this 3D dimension.
There are very few things in the dream-state that I cannot conquer or vanquish. If I can’t outrun whatever demon that is chasing me, I turn back around and vaporize it with a huge sci-fi looking ray gun. I can also leap up into the air and plant a kick in between the eyes of my opponent. I have also been known to simply shrink the thing into a smaller version of itself, thereby making it look puny and comical to me. It is really fun in a video game sort of way, when I think back on all these ‘monsters’ I have vanquished via my powerful dream-god self. It could be that I play quite a bit of video games, and indeed, research confirms the link.
According to Lifescience.com, “…dreams arise biologically from the human mind, while video games are technologically driven by computers and gaming consoles. “If you’re spending hours a day in a virtual reality, if nothing else it’s practice,” said Jayne Gackenbach, a psychologist at Grant MacEwan University in Canada. “Gamers are used to controlling their game environments, so that can translate into dreams.” **** It is only a matter of time when computers get powerful enough to be able to create the video-game-like atmosphere all around us so that we can be completely immersed in the virtual-reality world of video gaming.
I don’t really get these kinds of monster dreams any more because I dispatch them off so easily that it’s mostly just another interesting aspect of my dreaming. Nowadays, I mostly get the crazy, mind-boggling dreams that are filled with mathematical equations, graphs, charts, and time-lapsed models of scientific knowledge that, in my dream, I completely understand. I get voices that drone on, and on, and on in my head about all sorts of esoteric and ancient knowledge and history and fun-filled-facts. Mark Bancroft wrote about this in his paper, titled Lucid Dreaming and How Dreams Relate to Waking States of Consciousness.
…what we consider reality is analogous to being active participants within a computer program, and not knowing it is a program. Sleep could be a necessity in such a reality. Sleep would provide the opportunity to tweak and readjust the program (life) being experienced within it. The “life within the program” would experience sleep, while in fact new situations, experiences, and “people” were being added to the program. ~ Mark Bancroft, MA*****
What he proposes is something that I experience almost every night of my dreaming life. The numbers go against me though, because only 20% of the population actually reports getting lucid dreams. The other 80% thinks it’s either a bunch of hooey or they don’t ascribe anything important to lucid dreaming at all. It’s like trying to explain what the color blue is to a blind person…or the sense of out-of-body flying to one who has never flown.
