Unknown Reality, Session 712
Each system of reality is indeed surrounded by its probable realities, though any one of these “probable realities” can be used as the hub, or core reality; in which case all of the others will then be seen as probable. In other words, relativity certainly applies here.
The rockbed reality is the one in which the perceiver is focused. From this standpoint all others would seem peripheral. Taking that for granted, however, any given reality system will be surrounded by its probability clusters. These can almost be thought of as satellites. Time and space need not be connected, however – that is, the attractions that exist between a reality and any given probability cluster may have nothing to do with time and space at all. The closest probability satellite to any given reality may, for example, be in an entirely different universe altogether. In that regard, you may find brethren more or less like yourselves outside of your own universe – as you think of it – rather than inside it. You imagine your universe as extending outward in space (and backwards in time). You think of it as an exteriorized manifestation, expanding perhaps, but in an exterior rather than an interior fashion.
Your idea of space travel, for example, is to journey over the “skin of your universe”. You do not understand that your system is indeed expanding within itself, bringing forth new creativity and energy.
Your universe is only one of many. Each one creates probable versions of itself. When you journey on earth you move around the outside of it. So far, your ideas of space travel involve that kind of surface navigation. Earth trips, however, are made with the recognition of their surface nature. When you think in terms of travelling to other planets or to other galaxies, though, the same kind of surface travel is involved. As closely as I can explain it in your terms, your concepts of space travel have you going around space rather than directly through it.
You are also viewing your solar system through your own time perspective, which is relative. You “look backward into time”, you say, when you stare outward into the universe. You could as well look into the future, of course. Your own coordinates close you off from recognizing that there are indeed intelligences alive even within your own solar system. You will never meet them in your exterior reality, however, for you are not focused in the time period of their existence. You may physically visit the “very same planet” on which they reside, but to you the planet will appear barren, or not able to support life.
In the same way, others can visit your planet with the same results. There is then a whole great inner dimension even to the space that you know, that you do not perceive. There are intelligent beings outside of your own galaxy, “adjacent” to you. Theoretically you can visit them with some vast improvements in your technology, but great amounts of time would be involved. Others have visited your own planet in that particular fashion. Yours is still a linear technology. Some intelligent beings have visited your planet, finding not the world you know but a probable one. There are always feedbacks between probable systems. A dominant species in one may appear as a bizarre trace species in another. More will be said about this and your planet later in the book. The closest equivalent to your own kind of intelligence and being can actually be found not by following the outer skin of space, but by going through it, so to speak.
There are, again, inner coordinates having to do with inner behavior of electrons. If you understood these, then such travel could be relatively instantaneous. The coordinates that link you with others who are more or less of your kind have to do with psychic and psychological intersections that result in a like space-time framework.
Here I would like to give a very simple example, evocative of what I mean. The other day Ruburt received a telephone call from a woman in California who was in difficulty. Ruburt promised to send [healing] energy. Hanging up, he closed his eyes and imagined energy being sent out from a universal source through his own body, and directed toward the person in need. When he did so, Ruburt mentally saw a long “heavy” beam extending straight to the west from a point between his eyes. It reached without impediment. He felt that this extension was composed of energy, and it seemed so strong that a person could walk upon it without difficulty. Subjectively he felt that this beam of energy reached its destination. And so it did.
Energy was almost instantly transmitted across the continent from one specific individual to another. When you are dealing with that kind of energy, and particularly when you believe in it, space does not matter. Emotional connections are set up and form their own set of coordinates. That beam of energy is as strong and real as a beam of steel, though it moves faster than a beam of light.
If Ruburt had tried to visit the woman by plane he would have followed the curve of the earth, but in those terms the energy went through in the “straightest” way.
The psychic and emotional communication, then, cut through physical coordinates. Ruburt was momentarily allied with the woman.
In the same way you can be allied and in tune with other probabilities that do not coincide with your space-time axis. The exterior universe with its galaxies – as you understand it, and on that level of activity – can be encountered on certain rigid space-time coordinates. You can visit other planets only in your present. Your present may be the past or the future as far as inhabitants of a given planet are concerned. Your physical senses will only operate in their and your present.
“Effective” space travel, creative space travel on your part, will not occur until you learn that your space-time system is one focus. Otherwise you will seem to visit one dead world after another, blind to civilizations that may exist on any of them. Some of these difficulties could be transcended if you learned to understand the miraculous multidimensionality of even your own physical structure, and allowed your consciousness some of its greater freedom.
To some extent you have neurologically blinded yourselves. You accept only a certain range of neurological impulses as “reality”. You have biologically prejudiced yourselves. The physical structure is innately aware of many more valid versions of reality than you allow it to be.
Theoretically, a thoroughly educated space traveler in your time, landing upon a strange planet, would be able to adjust his own consciousness so that he could perceive the planet in various “sequences” of time. If you land upon a planet in a spaceship and find volcanoes, you would, perhaps, realize that other portions of that planet might show different faces. You have confidence in your ability to move through space, so you might then explore the terrain that you could not see from your original landing point. If you did not understand the change in qualities of space, you might imagine that the whole planet was a giant volcano.
You do not understand as yet, however, that in a way you can move through time as you move through space – and until you understand that, you will not know the meaning of a true journey, or be able to thoroughly explore any planet – or any reality, including your own.
You imagine that your own earth is mapped out, and all frontiers known, but the linear aspects of your planet’s life represent a most minute portion of its reality.
The portions of the psyche reflect and create the portions of the universe from its most minute to its greatest part. You identify with one small section of your psyche, and so you name as reality only one small aspect of the universe.
In class last evening Ruburt “picked up” messages that seemed to be too slow for his neurological structure. He was convinced that it would take many hours of your time in order to translate perhaps a simple clear paragraph of what he was receiving. He experienced some strain, feeling that each vowel and syllable was so drawn out, in your terms of time, that he must either slow down his own neurological workings or try to make some suitable adjustments. He chose the latter. Messages, therefore, perceptions, “came through” at one speed so to speak, and he managed to receive them while translating them into a more comfortable neurologically familiar speed.
One part of Ruburt accepted the “slow” [or “long”] perceptions, while another quickened them into something like normal speech patterns. Some communication did result.
What he was sensing, however, was an entirely different kind of reality. He was beginning to recognize another synapse [neuronal] pattern not “native”; he was familiarizing himself with perceptions as a different set of coordinate points. Such activity automatically alters the nature of time in your experience, and is indicative of intersections of your consciousness. That particular type of consciousness operates “at different speeds” than your own. Biologically, your own physical structures are quite able to operate at those same speeds, though as a species you have disciplined yourselves to a different kind of neurological reaction. By altering such neurological prejudice, however, you can indeed learn to become aware of other realities that coincide with yours.
Electrons themselves operate at different “speeds”. The structure of the atom that you recognize, and its activity, is in larger terms one probable version of an atom. Your consciousness, as it is allied with the flesh, follows the activity of atoms as far as it is reflected in your system of reality.
Ruburt is learning to minutely alter his experience with the probable atomic correlations that exist quite as validly as does the particular kind of atomic integrity that you generally recognize. When he does so, in your terms, he alters atomic receptivity. This automatically brings probabilities to the forefront. To perceive other realities, you alter your own coordinates, tuning them in to other systems and attracting those into your focus.
To some extent or another there are counterparts of all realities within your psyche. When you slow down, or quicken your thoughts or your perceptions, you automatically begin to alter your focus, to step aside from your officially recognized existence. This is highly important, for in certain terms you are indeed transcending the time framework that imagine to be so real.
In other terms, certain portions of your own reality have long since “vanished” in the unrecognized death that your own sense of continuity has so nicely straddled. Your personal cluster of probable realities surrounds you, again, on a cellular basis, and biologically your physical body steers its own line, finding its balance operating in a cluster of probabilities while maintaining the focus that is your own. You can even learn to tune in to the cellular comprehension. It will help you realize that your consciousness is not as limited as you suppose. All realities emerge from the psyche, and from the CU’s that compose it.
