A Course on Consciousness

LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION

This is a thoroughgoing examination of communication and language both verbal and non-verbal. The most important part of our personal and social existence is the ability to communicate and convey a language based on thoughts and ideas. Language on earth has been limited to a very linear way of speaking. Our thoughts are articulated through a series of verbal commands which sometimes loose themselves in semantics and ideologies of other humans. Even the best linguist would have problems conveying a thought to people where language causes the break up of communication.
When exploring consciousness, it is important to see certain factors of communication which is present in every day life. The most major level of communication is non-verbal in the form of reality itself. Non-verbal communication is a very advanced way of thinking. It entails thoughts and ideas, which are generated in a manner so that to convey it would mean to experience it similar to how we experience our physical existence.
In the previous chapter, we discussed energy as having consciousness. And the physical senses as tools that we use to communicate with our external physical matter reality. The reason why I have taken this angle is because I want you to entertain the possibility that everything you are experiencing now is a complete form of communication both physical and non-physical levels.
Universal consciousness if it does exist would be the sum of all our ideas, the ideas and thoughts of other intelligence’s, and the ideas and thoughts of intelligence systems that go far beyond a human intelligence. Universal consciousness is where we objectify truth. It is the realm of the absolute and concrete. The most founding level of that truth is the fact that a universe exists at all. To personalize the truth we can admonish our own existence and acknowledge the fact we exist as having a fundamental truth to that personalized statement. Communication with a collective universal consciousness would mean that the language by which this objective universe speaks is how our experiences as subjective consciousness perceive this communication. Self-realization and self-exploration of ourselves as a part of a collective whole begins when we start to objectify truth. Truth is an absolute that we cannot argue or bicker over with ourselves. It’s like trying to argue that you do not exist at all with yourself when by that argument, you have proven that you do exist, at least, you have proven this to yourself. My fundamental basis for truth is the fact I exist and that something (left undefined for the argument) exists around me. All I have is myself as truth, and this is shared as a relationship with what I perceive as our externalized reality. And this externalized reality has others like myself who share in thoughts and ideas where communication plays a vital role in the conveying of these ideas. What about dreams? What are they? Are they just a thought pattern that our mind creates? Do dreams have a reality to them? Why is it that billions of life forms dream? If dreams are not important to physical reality, then why does our consciousness require them during sleep? Do dreams have the potential to be objective? Think about the possibility for now that some people share dreams. If you have not experience a shared dream before. Imagine similar tools of perception perceiving another spectrum of energy, which is more directly related to our thoughts and consciousness.
If people share dreams, then telepathy is a naturally occurring at some sub-conscious level. If two or more consciousness can share the same dream then the energy system that both share are the products of conscious thought patterning. In my studies, I have spoken with several people who have shared dreams. Myself being one of those people know that dreams can be shared. This is not a belief, or a desired fantasy, rather a personally explored part of my reality.
Dreams are as much a language as the spoken word. A powerful lucid dreamer with full control of the dream whereby he/she is sharing this dream with other consciousness has an ability to convey ideas in words, more so this consciousness can convey ideas where his thoughts become the dream. The recipient then experiences the dream based on this communication. It is natural for that subconscious part of ourselves to share a dream reality as it is for our physical waking consciousness to see and understand it’s physical environment.
The difficulty with shared dreams is the current human ideas and beliefs about dreams. Most think that dreams have no objective value and are purely the results of some unknown subconscious need to dream. The good news is people are starting to have experiences in the dreamstate that defy logical reason. The effects of this are profound enough to cause the person to think and analyze their views on dreams and what they mean.
Dreams at deeper levels of our sub-conscious begin to connect to a collective unconscious. At even deeper levels, dreams start to transcend the space time limitations of a physical belief system and precognitive elements begin to surface within a dreamers waking consciousness. Even deeper states where the waking consciousness is present enough to remember, dreams begin to unlock the very foundation where manufacturing of reality takes place. This creative process comes down to one fundamental, communication. Thoughts and ideas are being exchanged on a creative universal scale.

PRECOGNITIVE DREAMS

If one should wake up and remember a visit to this precognitive state and remember some of the details. One’s physical matter beliefs would start to change into something more profound. Imagine a dream where the contents convey a normal physical event. You wake up and clearly remember the dream. The dream is unique and you remember specific details. Then months go by and you forget the dream. One day, you decide to travel to a town that you have never been to before. And you go to a park to admire the waters. The people playing, the songbirds singing and every movement and physical expression starts to trigger some faint memory - déjà vu. You start pondering the déjà vu when a realization comes forward about your dream. It’s the contents of that forgotten dream you had where the same people, the same park, and the same town was conveyed. You sit there feeling and seeing in perfect timing everything from the same perspective you had in the dream. Every detail of your dream matches the physical event.
You may have had a dream come true before. It may have happen once, or twice. Perhaps you are the kind of person where this occurs on regular intervals, or perhaps you never had one. The fact is- people are having precognitive dreams. You could be having one right now for all I know and if so, please tell me about it as I am interested in knowing if this article you are reading is triggering some sense of familiarity that you attribute to a dream you once had. You would know because it triggers such a powerful déjà vu like awareness where the connection to the dream very strong.
What are precognitive dreams? Are these future events? Why are people having them? Have you had them? If you haven’t had a precognitive dream take some time to investigate them by asking friends, family, strangers, just about anyone you please to ask if they have experienced a dream, where months or years go by and this dream came true. If so, what is this phenomenon?
My personal experience with dreams coming true is for myself epic. When I was 15, the first dream I had where I started to realize my dreams did somehow mimic physical reality was taken only as a surprisingly accurate coincidence. The event was a fight I was in where five people had jumped me. The distractions in the fight was my awareness that I had dreamt this fight and clearly remember going over the details of that dream months ago. The same people, the same area, the same results. I was amazed at how close a dream could be to an actual physical event. But I discarded it as being purely coincidental because dreams have no relative meaning in physical matter reality.
During the same period, I had a friend who told me of experiences that came true after I told him about a dream where he was in that dream. I laughed at him and told him it was impossible, just a big coincidence. I completely ignored the early hints of this phenomenon. That didn’t last to long. The early precognitive dreams were tempered warning signs of the storm that was about to hit my consciousness. When that storm hit, it hit with a force it changed me forever.
The first metaphorical lightning-bolt to strike me seemed planned out. The timing of the next series of precognitive dreams was too overwhelming. Days after the fight, I thought about how my dream was so close to the physical event, and it was kind of disturbing. How could strangers of whom I never met before be familiar to me? Did I see them around town and subconsciously stored that information in some unknown reservoir where my dreams have access? I don’t remember ever seeing them before. Even the clothes they wore, the beer they were drinking, my friends who were present during the fight, the location, the placement of the cars, the punches and kicks thrown, the resolution of the fight, all completely accurate in the finest detail to the physical event. Not one trace of inconstancy. It was too weird but the next few days became even weirder.
Downstairs in my house I was watching a movie, “Evil Dead” with my sister and her friend. I had seen evil dead before and this event set me up for a major realization. The dream I had was similar. I was downstairs watching Evil Dead with my sister and the same friend was there as well, except here was the inconsistency: my sister’s friend was not sitting with my sister, instead she was sitting with me and we had a blanket over top of us. She started to play with my feet, tickling them with her toes. Thinking to myself I laughed, “Yeah, dreams can be close to physical events but they are no-where accurate.” My clear memory of the dream proved the inconsistency theory I was thinking about, it also set me up for the fall, which came next. I had seen Evil Dead before so at least that was familiar. But my sister’s friend had not, and she was getting scared. Seeking refuge from her fears she walked over to the couch where I was sitting and sat beside. She said she felt safer sitting with me. She brought over a blanket from the other couch and threw it over top of me while covering herself. I started to get anxious. The familiarity level just took a ten-fold increase not to mention a sensation of déjà vu that was amplified by the precognitive dream I was realizing. All what I had remembered so clearly, and so accurately moments before happened. Every detail was now a match to the dream. Evil Dead was not as frightening to me as the fear that this precognitive realization brought to me. I was so frightened that something horrible was happening. Something no one could explain. It was relentless, the next day more and more events were coming out of the woodwork. Every corner I turned, every person I met, every thought I had soon became repetitive. There was nothing I didn’t know wouldn’t happen. The peak intensity of the next year was so strong that nothing could stop the surge of precognition I faced. I suffered as a result of it. I had no one to turn too, no place to go. I proved it to my closest friends, my mom. It was complicated by the start of lucid dreams and out-of-bodies and shared dreams. In one year, my entire perspective of reality changed forever.
At age sixteen, I made a leap in consciousness that I never even considered a possibility. I never asked for it, I never wanted it. It just happened. The results were to clear, to concise for me to ignore. I suddenly didn’t trust anyone. I became quite paranoid of other people, school, governments and science. My grades dropped, I was extremely depressed. I felt like some freak of nature, an alien in a fabricated world that could be nothing more than just my imagination externalized. I was in a black hole of familiarity and it scared me. I knew I wasn’t crazy but this sort of thing wasn’t supposed to happen. But it did, and I knew it. My feelings at that time can best be described like this; I felt like it was going through a loop. What I dreamt would soon be and all the thoughts, the emotions, and feelings I had could not stop nor change this. For whatever reasons, this intense level of precognition served its purpose. I could no longer deny the truth that dreams could convey a future event at a personal level in a hundred-percent-like fashion. Despite what others would argue to me against this truth I was realizing, their arguments were sometimes met with a demonstration of this precognition. This was rare and few but occurred none-the-less.
I started to notice answers to why not everyone has precognitive dreams. And this was brought by the deterioration of this level of experience. For what ever reasons, it started to deteriorate and soon the familiar patterns were replaced with a distorted symbolic representation of physical events. The memory was altered when passing through some unknown distorting layer in my consciousness. But since it was symbolic, I could see where the symbolism did represent the future event but it was masked within a distorted field of my perception.
For the most part, I feared that my psyche was destined for an eternity of living in some endless loop. My salvation came from my desire to figure out how all this was possible, and the answers came in ways that overpowered my ability to ignore them.

THE CREATIVE PROCESS

As you are probably aware, I am reducing the concepts of physical matter reality from being just a physical mass, to an energy pattern. It gets better or for worse. Many of you who lack the experience of what I have been and will be discussing may want to stop reading this manuscript in the light that it goes so totally against your beliefs about physical matter reality. Please bear in mind, they are still beliefs and I encourage you to stick this course through. We must clearly see why precognition exists. Why consciousness exists and why we exist. There is a truth in all of this. The fact we exist a fundamental for truth. It becomes a fundamental when we realize that “truth” is who we are. Truth is our awareness about ourselves combined with our awareness of the universe. My belief is- we can no more understand the workings of this externalized world if we do not understand the workings of our internal one. What if physical matter reality was nothing more than a pattern of thought that we share? What if we can communicate with other intelligent systems? What if there is a universal consciousness in which we are all parts? We are a part of this reality. We are made of the same particles and energy that makes up this universe. We all have some sense of our own existence in this physical universe. What if a creative intelligence was vital in the creation of physical matter reality? What if you are a part of that creative intelligence? What if all the patterns of energy that we sense around us are nothing more than the manifestations of patterned thought? How could physical matter reality exist purely as thought?
Thoughts are created. Something thinks and the end result is the thought. Dreams are a subconscious form of thought. Precognitive dreams on the other hand are not to far from this creative process. To understand precognitive dreams, we must enter this level of dreamed of experience in a way where we can consciously explore it. Waking consciousness is who we are. In order to learn anything, we must be able to consciously perceive it. Lucid dreaming is one way to tap into this source. Another way, which relates to lucid dreams, is the out-of-body experience.
Since this section has been on communication and dreams, we will look at a new form of lucid dreaming we can call, “Lucid Precognitive Dreams”. These dreams are probably the most profound experience one can have. It strips away everything you may believe you are and replaces it with something more than just a belief. The results can be fantastic, awe-inspiring and forever changing. It is a good way for you to realize that you have the potential to consciously share in this creative spectrum of experiential existence.
Lucid dreams have been researched over time. The average person who investigated dreaming usually can accept the possibility that they can achieve a state of lucidity in a dreamstate and have total control of that dream. Waking conscious is vital for exploring dreams. Lucid dreams are important for a more conscious view of ourselves. We will be looking at some very simple steps for achieving a lucid state in the dream. The most important thing to recognize is that you as a conscious participant in your dream-life hold every key to unlock these doors. Time, practice and determination should yield results and we will look at potential blockages that may arise due to fears, disbelief and poor sleeping patterns.
Lucid Precognitive Dreams are the next step in dream exploration. The science that will evolve from people actively entering this state will be very interesting to say the least. It makes the most improbable possibility seem more probable. And the effort it takes to get there is relatively simple. Just not yet fully understood. Over the next couple of weeks, I will be addressing this thing called the creative process. The focus of our lucid dreams and out-of-bodies will be to uncover and unlock some of the hidden secrets of this creative field. My exploration of this state has illustrated to me that we are subconsciously already there. Knowing that will make it easier for subconscious information in that layer to slowly surface into our normal waking consciousness. The key has always and will always be what we can consciously be aware of. This course is designed to make the subconscious more conscious.
