Soul development as the next evolutionary step

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

I suspect that most people will name “soul” as the main difference between animals and humans. They will not be able to define what it is, but it is still a basis for the difference. Now, let’s look at the evolutionary steps: inorganic (minerals) to organic (up to animals) to consciousness (humans) to X (Read Ishmael to find out why there is X). Humans redefine rules of evolution (natural selection does not apply any more), but evolution shall continue (why would it stop?). It seems to me that we are stepping into “soul evolution”, or whatever you want to call it, stage. Animals could not develop brains without presence of required organic molecules. When these molecules became available, brain was developed and used to advance the evolution. The next stop is soul development. There is no point to make it more esoteric than it is, instead it is reasonable to find a rationale behind this progression. The only problem is that souls do not live in four dimensions that we live in. The other dimensions (if any) must be understood, before their inhabitants can be met. It seems that souls will not be available until a human has reached certain level of awareness. And this is a circular argument: no awareness – no soul is visible, no soul is visible – no need to develop awareness. On the bright side, animals did not become aware of the brains, until they started to use it. We will see if we have the time to use this approach.

Universe structure and thoughts

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

I have accepted a long time ago that thoughts are energy patterns (meaning that thoughts can affect physical world), but just recently I started to understand implications of the logical chain that connects thoughts to physical world based on this assumption.

Everything in the universe is energy, matter is a specific form of energy. We also know the energy conservation law: energy can only be transformed. Now, if thoughts are energy, than they must have a manifestation in the universe. In simple terms they are part of the universe as we see it. Given that we have a choice of what we think and how we think, we automatically making choice about how the universe looks at any given point. In short, there is a part of universe that is always shaped by our thoughts, similar to a sand box where we play. How much influence our sand box has on the rest of the universe? I guess it depends.

This explains how it is possible to read thoughts, all we need to do is look at the part of universe that corresponds to someone else thoughts (into their sandbox). I am not sure if there are any privacy laws in the universe, hence I think that anyone can “look” at anything (whatever look means in this context), the only requirement is the skill of “looking”. This also explains how we get new thoughts. Wind blows over our sandbox and forms new patterns, which we interpret as our thoughts.

I bet others have come up with the same analogies, it would be interesting to read about them.
