On Dreams

The particle/wave duality found in Seth\u2019s consciousness units metaphor has
some
very important implications. The fact that Seth chose to couch his CUs in
the
context of one of the most important paradigm-breaking theories of the
twentieth
century \u2013 nonlocality in quantum mechanics \u2013 is no accident. Even the
skeptic
who believes that Jane Roberts secretly read up on this topic and used her
overactive subconscious to produce the Seth books has to consider that,
regardless of the source, the integration of this metaphor into this
creation
myth is brilliant and evocative.

As we have seen earlier, when the species is in need of new ideas, like
calculus
and the wireless telegraph, they inevitably burst forth from the depths of
the
collective psyche. A group of scientists and a handful of enthusiasts are
the
only people who have ever performed the mental and mathematical gymnastics
necessary to understand the concept of nonlocality, if only in intellectual
terms.

And yet, when a housewife and aspiring writer in New York state comes up
with a
robust metaphysics that uses essentially the same idea in the mid-1970's,
is
this purely coincidental or more cynically, intentional subterfuge? Come
on! The
fact is that these ideas continually emerge in various creative guises to
facilitate helpful changes in portions of the population. No single source,
discipline, or belief system has a legitamate claim to a Complete View of
Everything. A Theory of Everything as recently formulated by Ken Wilber,
perhaps, but _not_ a Complete View.

Continuing then, the particle/wave duality of CUs also sheds important
light on
the deeper nature of the mechanics of the dream state. CUs dream and
perceive
through inner sensing, so every grouping of CUs holds these innate
characteristics. Could it be that the linear characteristics inherent in
our
waking state are simply the direct result of CU\u2019s particle nature and the
more
amorphous, timeless nature inherent in our dreaming state is the result of
CU\u2019s
wave nature?

The CU metaphor also maps directly onto another important concept found in
quantum mechanics \u2013 the universe as a hologram. This metaphor supports the
existence of a physical universe coupled with a hidden, source domain. In
short,
Seth\u2019s frameworks of consciousness. We discussed the concept of
nonlocality, or
being in two or more places at the same time, in the Foreword. However, the
analogy of the physical universe as a hologram needs some further
explanation.

Increasingly capturing the imagination of scientific and religious thinkers

alike, a hologram is basically a three dimensional picture that appears on
a two
dimensional surface. It is created through a process of imprinting multiple
images onto a photosensitive chemical layer, usually on glass, from
reflected
laser light. If you break the hologram into pieces, you can still see the
_entire_image_in_each_piece_. In other words, the Whole is contained in
each-of-its-parts.

In essence Seth\u2019s CUs are holograms, containing the Whole of All-That-Is in
each
\u2018\u2018part.\u2019\u2019 Though in one sense there really aren\u2019t any distinct parts, in
purely
physical terms there _is_ the appearance of parts, thingness, and
objectivity
when CUs employ a \u2018\u2018particle focus\u2019\u2019 to form myriad psychological
boundaries.
When CUs employ a \u2018\u2018wave focus\u2019\u2019 the discrete nature of \u2018\u2018parts\u2019\u2019 and
boundaries
melts away, revealing the Whole contained within, just as in the shard of
the
fractured hologram.

The particle/wave duality of CUs also helps to explain how there can be
simultaneous time in the context of frameworks of consciousness. It is the
CUs
\u2018\u2018particle focus\u2019\u2019 that creates the nine basic dimensions of time and it is
the
CUs \u2018\u2018wave focus\u2019\u2019 that allows our inner selves to simultaneously perceive
all
of them:

PAST/past
PAST/present
PAST/future

PRESENT/past
PRESENT/present
PRESENT/future

FUTURE/past
FUTURE/present
FUTURE/future

Actually there is no such thing as _the_thing_ \u2018\u2018simultaneous time.\u2019\u2019 This
is
just another metaphor that Seth uses to attempt to explain in plain English
the
complexities of All-That-Is in the context of the multidimensional psyche,
universe, and frameworks of consciousness. This metaphor reinforces that
physical reality (Framework 1) is much bigger than previously thought, not
aclosed system, and multidimensional in nature. Additionally, it reinforces

that
there is no beginning or end point in linear terms to our psyche and
universe,
just endless variations on the particle/wave nature of consciousness
ever-dreaming, \u2018\u2018forgetting\u2019\u2019 and \u2018\u2018remembering\u2019\u2019 itSelf anew.

The intrinsic nature of CUs\u2019 \u2018\u2018particle focus\u2019\u2019 and \u2018\u2018wave focus\u2019\u2019 also
forms a
baseline for understanding _all_ paranormal experience \u2013 nonordinary states

\u2013including astral projection, lucid dreaming, near-death experiences, and

superconsciousness. Further understanding the mechanics of the paranormal
is an
important frontier for continued scientific research as we begin a new
millennium.

As physical selves we are immersed in a camouflage universe of idea
constructions \u2013 a holographic dream \u2013 formed by the latent potentials of
electromagnetic energy units and consciousness units, those foundational
aspects
of All-That-Is. In this sense physical reality is as much a dream world as
our
dream state. However, this doesn\u2019t mean that physical reality is not real.
That
is, it would be prudent to wear a parachute when jumping out of an
airplane,
there are dream-bills to be paid, and dream-stomachs that require
sustenance.
Nonetheless, physical reality is a unique and sacred dream, built upon a
divine
love and subjectivity imbued with a great desire and purpose to nurture
_everything_ toward the realization of its maximum potential.

On \u2018\u2018Evolution\u2019\u2019

It is interesting that Seth\u2019s creation myth bears a remarkable similarity
to
other creation myths from around the world. Though they are beyond the
scope of
this essay, one myth in particular, the Aboriginal myth of the alcheringa
or the
\u2018\u2018dreamtime\u2019\u2019 as English researcher Frank Gillen coined it in 1896, bears a
closer look. It maps closely to the essential nature of what Seth describes
in
the opening chapters of Dreams, \u2018\u2018Evolution,\u2019\u2019 and Value Fulfillment.

According to this Aboriginal creation myth, time emerged from a timeless
realm,
supernatural beings created the world and then fell into an exhausted
\u2018\u2018slumber\u2019
\u2019 becoming the very parts of the earth itSelf \u2013 oceans, forests, lakes,
mountains, and sky. These supernatural beings seem remarkably similar to
Seth\u2019s
sleepwalkers \u2013 those early entities \u2018\u2018in trance\u2019\u2019 who formed the planet,
its
geography, and ecosystem.

In the Aboriginal myth, the action of dreaming plays a central role in the
creation. According to physicist Fred Alan Wolf:

\u2018\u2018As new as the Dreamtime concept of this reality may appear to us,
Australian
Aborigines claim to have \u2018memory\u2019 of this realm dating back nearly 150,000
years. From this realm, a long time ago, the world of mind, matter, and
energy
arose as a dream of the \u2018Great Spirit.\u2019 Thus Aboriginal thinking suggests
that
the universe or God is itself dreaming into existence all of what we
experience.
