Events are Multidimensional

I like Seth’s comparison between a table … which is really a seething mass of quantum particles appearing to be organized by our perception into a table … and the parallel with events.  

I like to use a movie projector metaphor to describe Edgar Cayce's manifestations process “spirit is the life, mind is the builder, the physical is the result”.  This works for Seth’s description too.  What we know as physical perception is actually a pattern of light  (like images on a screen), or Framework 1.  This pattern of light is maintained by a continuous flow of light (energy) from the projector (Framework 2).

“You can look at an object like a table and see its definitions in space.  To some extent you are too close to psychological events to perceive them in the same fashion, of course, yet usual experience seems to have a starting point and a conclusion.  Instead, experienced events usually involve only surface perceptions.  You observe a table’s surface as smooth and solid, even though you realize it is composed of atoms and molecules full of motions.

“In the same way, you experience a birthday party, an automobile accident, a bridge game, or any psychological event as psychologically solid, with a smooth experienced surface that holds together in space and time.  Such events, however, consist of indivisible “particles” and faster-than-light perceptions that never show.  In other words, they contain psychic components that flow from Framework 2 into Framework 1.

“Any event, therefore has an invisible thickness, a multidimensional basis.”
