So I was recently given some advice and reading. Apparently I'm not reaching a deep enough trance, or not reaching as deep as I thought. But reaching just deep enough I'm finding my weaker eye can almost see spirits. I'll have to work on that some.

Something I've felt for a while but I found beautifully worded. I have faith but mother help us.Image

I've been thinking lately of how string theory and the observation of particles work. I'm wondering if there is a limit to what we as physical beings can observe based on the uncertainty principle. Chaos magicians created Ellis to link points of power and introduce more variability. But what if all that it accomplished cannot be observed by us. We may be spiritual beings but we are locked within physical form that binds our ability to observe the natural world.

In essence perhaps we are limited in our scope of ability in part because there are too many observers of this reality, but even more so by the limitations of our senses. The potential exists but is unusable past a certain point because we cannot see things as they really are. Or even more interesting, maybe the spirits can't either and are on the other side looking in.

There are some other theories around, which promote the idea of the physical body being a spiritual body, as all things are created from Spirit. The 'ability to observe the natural world' while in the 'physical' body, in these theories, is 'blocked' by the Ego's perception of reality.

For example, Descartes "I think, therefore I am" is the Ego perception. In my own opinion, it should just be "I am."

This theory may be a core reason why we believe and pray to gods and goddesses in the first place tbh. They are privy to a reality that we are not

I agree with the last statement. However, I'd argue the Ego isn't necessarily the reason. I know plenty of gods whom possess ego to as great a degree as humans, however they are not tied to a human form and exist truly as spiritual beings even when inside of a physical form. While matter is made of energy it is no longer truly energy in pure form. It has been given a pattern to impress upon the world around it. In the same way spirit is not body although the body may be composed of spirit. But the pattern of the body and the parts is greater than the sum of the whole while being less than the potential of the spirit in pure.

I feel people forget that matter and energy conversion is a thing and that spirit can be linked to energy. People look at the patterns everywhere and seek to unravel or destroy them but what if it is a matter of rewriting them. I know that is no small task and would require a concerted effort. But I feel chaos magicians are simply making a new pattern and they forget that in their search for using chaos all they do is create new webs to entangle and confuse the things that already exist. It is not necessarily a bad thing but perhaps the metaphysical world is in shift more than we wish to acknowledge and our intimate understanding of the physical world has limited our ability to perceive the outer realms of existence.

Again that is perhaps a true statement. I'm wondering if their might be a way to get them to help rewrite the pattern within me to open up higher levels of understanding and open doors that I may not be able to on my own. I still have yet to find who these guides are who've appeared. I cannot remember what thread I mentioned them in though so I'll describe them again here. There were about 5-7 blue humanoid forms with a golden center located around the solar plexus. Perhaps this is what they are for or maybe not but I have yet to see them again, although I've been quite busy the last few weeks.

Do they posses Ego, or are they speaking in the language of the Ego in order for you to understand them?

Lol talk to Zeus he'd probably say something similar. While I see your point I deny that divinity is anything more than a higher form of energy or being, not that it includes any requirement of wisdom. Because really one can have the knowledge to do something without the wisdom of restraint.

Lol, then the question comes down to whether or not they act ;)

This is "inspiration" at its finest, in my mind.

I find this is the case especially with Angels. To some, they seem cruel but that is not the reality of the situation.

Honestly I consider angels a more powerful form of construct. In truth they have no free will. That was one of the major differences between angels and humans. At least this is the understanding I was lead to.
