But, there's more to it too, because I personally believe that we are each also existing/creating our own individual realities in a sense, while intertwining in each other's stories through a common consensus of sorts. Think parallel universes. Wild stuff
Okay, this needs some explanation ... please?
Well, my own interpretation for this and this is only MY own interpretation and perspective, and I'm holding an incredibly speculative view here. I don't hold tightly to this at all. This is something I still don't fully understand and likely never will in this life time. Yet, we are all manifesting our own realities. I have direct experience with this in my own life. I personally believe that because there is really no such thing as actual 'linear time', that all 'potentials' are ultimately already existing simultaneously.
In other words, this entire physical reality that we see external to our physical bodies (there is nothing really external to consciousness, but there IS a world external to our bodies, or I should say, 'potential world' external to our bodies), you and I are having a conversation right now, is a product of our collective (all of us, people, plants, animals, rocks, everything) creation. We clearly are interacting in the same virtual reality of sorts. We could not have conversation if we were not. This does not require analysis. This is everyone's direct experience. We all meet together and adhere to the same 'laws' of the universe. Ok, great, we agree upon that.
So, what to make then, of our own personal experiences and how do they affect on a larger scale? This might sound really far out there. But, I believe that while there are meeting points for all of us (consensus), external reality is simply a mirror for our individual belief systems. And our individual belief systems collectively create what we call.....Physical reality. But, there's more......
There is no one....collective reality. There IS a collective story, but even that is always changing in a sense. What we call 'collective' is more or less just potential to choose from. We are actually each creating our own vibrational versions
of that collective potential. In other words, what we call 'collective' is not just one objective 'reality', it's a mesh of vibrations interpreted from different perspectives. Planet Earth is not just 'One Planet". Which version of planet Earth are we experiencing? Again, consensus are consensus. Laws of Physics are laws of physics that we agree upon 'prior' to entering into this game of life. That's what gives the VR game a sense of continuity. No matter where you go, Donald Trump is President. No escaping that. That's part of the consensus collective story that we all co-create together. However, which version of Donald Trump we get, is entirely dependent on our belief systems about Mr. Trump.The laws and all of the commonalities that we all share are the parameters of the game....SO THAT....we can actually have a virtual reality experience. However, beyond that, we are each simply creating the outside mirror from our own belief systems.
It is our emotional experience or our beliefs which affect the 'external reality'. The ONLY way you could possibly know what you are holding on to, what you are creating, what you are experiencing is if it is reflected back to you. You are a musician. How could know the music you are creating if it was not reflected back to you in the form of sound? As infinite creators, how could we know our own creations if it were not reflected back to us in the form of (what we call) 'external reality'. There is LOTS of science coming to the forefront now with this. This isn't hocus pocus anymore. Dr.Joe Dispenza is one of the fore front leaders in this area. Also Gregg Braden, Bruce Lipton. They have tons of YouTube videos if you'd like to watch, if you haven't already. So, we each (through our belief systems), are drawing to us, vibrational versions of that collective potential (what we call collective reality is just potential) that match best with our own stories. And yet our own stories are intertwining with vibrational versions of other people's stories. How could this possibly be though? Wouldn't that leave very little resources for everyone around? That's why, in my opinion, there are parallel realities all existing simultaneously, depending on our belief systems.
I know what I am saying is likely making little sense. But, in simpler terms, consider that there is only One Consciousness, which is experiencing itself from an infinite number of perspectives, not only people, plants, animals, 'non sentient objects', but also infinite potential choices
for each one of those people, plants, animals, non sentient objects, etc etc. Whether I turn left or right at the doorway....each potential is a viable option that already exists in a sense (since all time, all choices already are NOW). Every possible choice that I can make in my life, already happened. Whichever choice I choose, I am essentially, collapsing the wave into particles for THIS particular vehicle of Consciousness. Time is like a movie reel. It's one moment to the next to the next to the next. All infinite realities simultaneously already existing. PLUS, in addition to that, there are also..... the vibrational versions of the people I interact with correlate best with the belief systems I am personally holding on to which also all exist simultaneously.
So, to a close, is there one Planet Earth? Is there one Universe? I say.....no. Planet Earth is ALL dependent on the perspective of.....yes....the observer. Anything we perceive in reality is dependent on.....the observer. (Observer again though, is not just a human observation). Again, there are consensus, meeting points for all of us, no doubt. But, all else is our own creations. In other words, the meeting points, the consensus laws of physics, we could say are the canvas boundaries. The canvas itself.....is Consciousness. What we create on that canvas is entirely up to us. Because there is no one version of Earth or even the Universe and that everything (again beyond consensus agreements) is entirely subjective is credence to the idea that everything in reality is entire dependent on experience. And that's why we are here.....for experience. Nothing is ultimately real in a grander sense....but our EXPERIENCE of it all is very real and ultimately, that's all there is.......Please understand, this is just my own view, and it's still in the very early workings. I more or less at this point, have fun with this stuff. But, I believe this whole shebang is somewhat along the lines of this.....
