The correlation about Anita and her brother.......meaning in spirit, I was suggesting that everything is available already, Anita was able to see what another person was doing during her NDE, when Anita's body was in a hospital and her brother was on an airplane, hence why, in the larger more expansive view, everything is available to see, including.....my sock color ....which is what you were asking about and I was responding to.
Sorry, was it shoes? Thought it was socks. But, I never said I do know what color your shoes are. So, not sure the point there. I made that clear that the way I see it is that when Spirit is focusing its attention on this human experience (in other words, Consciousness incarnated to the human experience)......it cannot possibly know what color your shoes are, because the focus of attention to the human experience limits what can actually be experienced from its full potential when not focusing on this human experience. So, again, to try one more time, while here in human body, Spirit cannot know what is beyond the limited sensory of the human body without having an OBE or something of the like, (aka an experience where the more expanded view of consciousness is available, not limited by the body's sensory).Ok but you still don't know what color my shoes are, so there's one thing you don't know
However, I was suggesting that Spirit is infinite and only focuses a small amount of attention on to the human experience, while its attention that is not focused on this human experience.......already does know what kind of shoes you are wearing, as once the body dies, all is happening simultaneously with no more limitations.
This point is exactly the point I have made countless times on this forum discussing uniqueness. Yet, it's a bit ironic,since you are the one who incessantly points out that there is no person, even in this very thread, read your response to Onceler. "You are a person sometimes, and not a person at other times? My point is you're never a person". But, now, there IS a person? How interesting. So, there's a person when it's convenient for you, and not a person when it's not convenient?I sometimes say consciousness is all, but that doesn't make one separate person the same as another (it's a pointer beyond the illusion of separation), and the fact that you don't know what color my shoes are is evidence that within a certain context, you are not the same spirit as I am
What does all of this have to do with free will? Actually? Nothing. My original point earlier in this thread, about free will is that if a debate is going to take place about this particular subject of free will, there has to be at least a consideration of the greater reality of spirit in my estimation. I suggest that there is a spirit world that is far more real than this human experience and that is where free will is most apparent. Why is it most apparent there? Because all of our choices there are done with a greater understanding of how it will affect the whole, with no conditioning to cloud that view. Yet, I am suggesting that choice is still the focal point of all creation.
On another note, you posted an awesome link in another recent thread about bio-energetics which is an area I'm studying. So, I want to say thank you for posting that. I saved it on my computer, because I found it really helpful.
