Assuming that we accept that in the eyes of the quantum physicist that with every choice you make, an alternate YOU is created to experience the other choice, then what happens? Well before going there let’s examine the statement Bob Albiston made about thought.
“In Frontiers Of Psychology, 2017, recent developments in the neurology of thought and consciousness were summarized. We tend to think that we consciously direct our thoughts and make choices. Actually, thinking goes on in the background in an efficient manner while consciousness passively rides alongside unaware of how information is being processed. We quickly become aware of what we have already thought. It is the old horse and rider analogy of the deep meditator...we are not really the directors of the play. We are, in fact, being thought by large processes outside of our consciousness. Your MWI is equally humbling, disconcerting, and oddly liberating.”
This is pretty much in agreement with quantum physics theory that thoughts interact. Divide the mind into two components, the conscious part that gives us our self worth, that tells us who we are when we look into the mirror, and the second part that doesn’t care about our self worth because it’s too busy working on what and who we want to be. Some scientists call this the Undermind. It is the Undermind that helps us play golf, breathe, etc. And it is the Undermind that makes it possible for us to get what we seek. So while the conscious part of our mind is being ‘oh hum’, it is actually the other portion controlling our thoughts. And because the Undermind is interacting with other forces—and we are not even aware of it, the sly devil—it is, as Bob said, directing the play we are seeing. So the question becomes, how do we choose the play? I’ll get into that later but for now there is this: BELIEF IS EXPECTATION AND EXPECTATION IS BELIEF.
So, a brief synopsis of MWI is that choices create a new YOU, and that new YOU shares the same space as the old you, but its world is different. The new YOU brought along its friends, house car, etc into the world. This man is insane, you say---but hold on because if a hundred years ago I said that we’d be traveling in space and able to talk on a wristwatch, well---
Why accept this theory? There is a story about a drunk looking for his lost keys under a street light because he could see better there. Well, this theory answers a lot of my questions so until I find something better, I’ll stay where I can see.
So, assuming there are an infinite number of YOU’s and your brains are using the same space, do YOU interact? Of course, why wouldn’t YOU? And there is nothing to suggest that in our MWI, time is not accelerated or events compressed. When Jesus told the thief on the cross that today he would be with him in paradise, was that event compression or accelerated time? One or the other. Dreams about the future that come true are called psychic events, but perhaps they are simply another YOU travelling faster than you and seeing the future. What is intuition? De je vu moments?
For now, I’ll let this be digested, or thrown up—whatever, and go back to EXPECTATIONS AND BELIEF. We have the power to control our life to a much greater extent than we imagine. Jesus tried to tell us that when he said that with faith the size of a mustard seed we could move mountains. So what happened? Well, we chose to take this as a metaphor, to accept limitations rather than possibilities. All this while our Undermind was screaming, NO, NO, NO! Please listen to him. See, the Undermind knows but won’t force its will on us. We have to choose. Again Jesus said, that where people were gathered together, he would be there. To me this means that when thoughts are forming a consensus, there is great power. EXPECTION IS BELIEF. Your expectations tell the Undermind to get busy, so it does that through—well, networking. Remember, that thoughts interact. And here I’m talking about the world YOU now live in. So, get rid of those negative thoughts and grab onto the Undermind---have true faith, not hope, expect things to improve, and see what happens. Search under the streetlight.
MUCH MORE LATER---if you have issues or questions you can address them through my blog. They will be private.
