The following evening, preceded by the day behind the pictures left and last-post, led Brian and I into a discussion about dreamscape. From the idea that we are just thought forms of the Universe, and not the spontaneously-made Higher Life Forms we think we are, came the realisation that we are nothing more than organic machines. We go wrong, we switch off, we switch on again. This system of rundown and recharge is no more complicated than a car battery and like a car battery it's also a carbon unit. We carbon units need to sleep or we die, so that makes sense of that one then. Brian is a teccie, remember, who knows his machinery inside out even if he is a bit reluctant to talk about dimensions.
So what are dreams? If mind is the waveform, which I'm now taking totally for granted, then it's free of the constraints the body is used to. There isn't a dimension it can't potentially access or a section of the multiverse it's unable to visit. What the mind can't do isn't in question, it knows what it can't do, and that's not a lot. The mind has infinity to play with if it wants it. Most of us don't want it to go that far.
Brian and I both dream as ourselves. The dream may be wildly away from the normalities of everyday life, but we are ourselves as we are now, the same age and the same person. For others, it seems, the constraints are looser, and they can dream themselves as other people altogether, some even go so far as being different life forms. The point is, the mind needs its time off. Coping with the pressures of a singular, 3D, grounded reality is just too much for any self-respecting mind to handle, so it insists on regular holidays or the girl dies. "Your dreamtime or your life, People of Earth. We insist on nothing less if we're to get you to where you want to be."
The mind in this respect is both a singular and a collective at the same time, as Light is a collective of photons while also being omnipresent - which is perhaps quite a feat for any life form. Hey, making hay while the suns shines, maybe I may humbly suggest that we dump the whole ‘parameter of life' questions and just get on with learning what we can about how life works, rather than gettin' bogged down with the details. Whether or not something needs a brain to be conscious is very old-hat now. Let's move on.
What we experience in Dreamscape is therefore no less real than what we experience of conscious reality, it's just an extension of our mind's capacity for freedom. And as everywhere in life, it's as well to be careful what you wish for, and think about thoughts being very powerful indeed. Thoughts are the gravity that brings Mind home, they choose where to lead us, so perhaps us electromagnetic units had better start making friends with our electrons.
