Commentary on the Challenge of Trans-Physical Information

Posted by IronGhost , 12 September 2011 · 278 views

Let me pause now for some commentary:

As you may have noticed, a single dream trip to The Restaurant on the Edge of Time has generated an enormous amount of material. Even with excluding the events involving the Hidden People, documenting a journey to a dream destination can result in pages upon pages of … stuff.

When I first started keeping a dream journal several decades ago, this aspect of dream journaling quickly became apparent to me. Just a single night of dreaming can generate easily 10,000 words or more. It’s daunting. Even the great Carl Jung made a similar observation in his ground-breaking studies of his own dreaming mind. Jung expressed discouragement, saying the aspects and elements of the unconsciousness mind are so endlessly deep, plumbing the depths of the unconscious seems an impossible task.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged very quickly, especially if you have an otherwise busy life. Recording the rich and loaded “packets” of information impregnated within dream imagery in totality is an impossible task.

I quickly learned that I would have to learn to be selective in recording dreams – that meant writing down only the central themes and significant elements of dreams, any one of which can spin off into thousands of words of commentary.

Jung said that every dream unexamined is like a gift that remains unopened. That’s true, but the sheer reality for me means tossing a lot of those “gifts” on a heap somewhere, and opening only those that glitter the prettiest, or come wrapped with the nicest bow!

Some of my friends have often urged me to write a book about The RET itself. One friend said: “You should take, say, two years worth of trips to The RET and make it into a book!”

Two years worth! Oh, wow, LOL, man! Let me tell you all something, people. I could easily – and I mean easily – write a full-length book on any two or three trips to The RET. Maybe even just one trip. Yes, easily. I think you have all seen an example of that.

Just look at all the elements of the trip to The RET is have been documenting in this blog recently:

The always strange relationship with the Goddess Waitress, chocolate dress and all; the giant dinosaur birds; the strange Pandit Magnneson entity; his encounter with the giant rocker chick; the description of the ‘Night Section’; the Cosmic Brain Vine and it’s connection with Father Reston Vromin and the world of Dr. 58; the encounter with the Hidden People – and let’s not forget the food itself!

And there are even whole sections of this dream trip to The RET which I have glossed over, such as the “Bizarre Area” which is to the left of the central walkway and opposite the solarium viewing area. There is also a “Weird Area” – let me tell you something – you would not believe what is happening over there! I’m not even going to go there in this blog! It would be endless.

And then there's the "Hallway to Infinity." Oh man! When can I ever get to writing about that?

The same situation is also true of Ouija board work. You would not believe the pages and pages and pages, and volumes of information, I have never released concerning the Dr. 58 material alone. It’s not that I don’t want to – it’s simply impossible. There isn’t enough time in the day to process all of the information, believe me.

So my challenge here has always been to be as selective as possible, to not get bogged down, and strive to relate to you the central, most salient elements of the experience.

We are limited beings in our physical forms, my friends.

Part of the problem is the very primitive way we communicate here on this physical plane. Words transmit meaning, but they are extremely limited! Spoken language is primitive! It’s also highly symbolic, and all but meaningless because language bits are watered down symbolisms that don’t really get at true, central  meanings.

Talk is cheap, that’s for sure. But talk is not only cheap – it’s almost worthless.

Imagine if you were traveling in a realm of Pure Mind, and the communications you had with other beings and your experience of other environments was all being absorbed nonverbally – and without using any of the narrow, primitive five senses – but rather, you were absorbing massive amounts of information directly into your consciousness – like a gigantic sponge that was absorbing whole lake-fulls of “water information” – and doing so within seeming seconds!

But it’s even more than that. In the realm of pure consciousness, the time-based concept of  “seconds” is all but meaningless, if not nonexistent.

Let’s say you are in the dream world, or in the astral plane, you encounter another being or entity of some kind. Instead of sitting down for a normal conversation – that being “shoots” a “quantum packet” of information at you, that bursts inside your own consciousness – kind of like a zipped file you download from the Internet -- and when it gets to your hard drive, it proceeds to open up by “executing” itself.

For me, the dream world and astral world is a place where “zipped packets” of information energy are constantly being ‘fired’ into my consciousness. Instantaneously, one receives a huge volume of extremely rich, layered and deep information – it may be 10 days worth of information, say – but one absorbs it all into the mind in a mini-microsecond!!!  YAHHH!!!

And then you face the challenge of reporting it back to your friends here in our narrow, limited plane of existence where we see only a tiny sliver within the total spectrum of light-wave energy, mixed in with some paltry sound wave information, and not much more – if you don’t count stuff like intuition, imagination, emotions, feelings – all of which are integral forms of communication.

And so, I just wanted to mention some of these aspects of what I am reporting here – there is never a time when I do not feel inadequate and even frustrated in getting the entire story out to you as best as can be done – but in the end, it all is what it is, I guess.

:>>>>>>>

In my next post, I want to tell you about two final encounters with the Hidden People. I successfully banished the gnome invasion, but the night I encountered another amazing attempt by the Hidden People to break into my realm – they tried to get in through the roof – and this time it registered both in my direct experience and in my wife’s dream imagery.

After dealing with that, the next night, the Hidden People put on an unforgettable display for me – I can’t wait to tell you about it.

One final note: Recently I was reading Micah Hanks’ excellent book, Magic, Mysticism and the Molecule.

Each chapter is headed with a meaty quote from some intellectual heavy weight, including Einstein and Aldous Huxley.

And so I was thrilled when I got to Chapter 9, page 153, where I saw myself quoted to head off the chapter!  Hanks used a quote from my novella “The Fairy Redemption of Jubal Cranch.”

So to thank Mr. Hanks, here's a link to his site: Gralien Report

Thanks, Mr. Hanks! I’m honored to be included with such other luminaries (although totally underserved).

We had an interesting personality here in Sweden by the name of Dénis Lindbohm. Unfortunately I haven't found any of his books translated to english. He worked profesionally on a photo-firm in Malmö until he got retired. All his writing and experimenting with the paranormal he did in his spare time. The subjects that interested him most was magick, reincarnation and astral projection. But he also wrote some about and had encounters with the little folks or the elementals as some might call them. He was born in 1927 and already 18 months old he remembered his previous lifetime as his mothers little-sister who died of some illness only 4 years old. His mother was a practicing christian with psychic abilities, just like his maternal grand-mother. Perhaps that gift helped her being more open-minded than people in general at that time. By a stroke of luck she had also for a time worked as maid for some rich elderly sisters that taught her about religions far from Sweden. They told her about reincarnation. Dénis never wrote about what it was exactly that convinced his mother, it was probably too personal for both of them. But he did convince her though and mother and son was close for the rest of their lives. Ian Stevenson knew about him but was sceptic because of his memories from off-world incarnations. Of which the most important was from a world named Sjermjyl and the life as one Rogval Hsan. He pointed out that those names might have been spelt differently but that was what Dénis brain interpreted them.

He got interested in lucid dreaming after having read An experiment with time in the late 30's, early 40's. He eventually abandoned lucid dreaming for astral projection. He made up his own word for it, which eludes me for the moment, because this was decades before new age and internet, so his sources was quite limited compared with today. He was completely self-taught and all his explorations in magic and astral voyages was due to his experiment. He discovered that the pentagram was a powerful protection against negative entities. He was also obsessed with the true pentagram, not the one we are used to from popular media but the three dimensional pentagram. He has also described in his books how to build a 3-D pentagram. He was also a pioneer in swedish science fiction but that's another story. He passed on 2005 78 years old of long-time cancer. It's a pity his books hasn't been translated to english because I'm sure many would be interested to read them outside of Scandinavia.

That is very interesting, Robin, and too bad there's not a translation. I wonder who is publisher was? Anyway, it shows that there are a lot of people out there who find the "cracks int  he doorway", so to speak, of the avenues of reality that lie outside the dominant technological-scientific paradigm most of the world culture is sold upon, to the exclusion of all else.

I'm not an anti-science guy by any means -- I love science -- nor am I one of these people who moans about oppression of the dominant paradigm we all operate under. Everything is as it should be -- but it is interesting to note that the "other worlds" can't be suppressed because there is always some around to "tune in" so to speak.

For the latter part of his life, maybe 20 or so he issued his books on his own small company called Psi-Cirkeln and on print on demand basis as to keep down his costs. There is a spanish artist by the name of Maria Lombide Ezpeleta who made some of his covers. She shares memories of the same strange world called Shermjyl.

I found a story about him and what is our equivalent to the Ouija board, the spirit in the glass. We often do it ourself using a cardboard and using a schnapps-glass as a pointer. Here they managed to contact Belial. I hope the google translate works. Sometimes it works pretty well and sometimes it's just dribble.

Crazy amount of work this all must take!

WOW! :tu:
Completely blown away by all this....

This is how I found your writings:
I spend most of my time (on night shift) in the ET/UFO threads here.
They have been boring of late, so I checked out another thread cryptids, I think.... Someone started a thread about what the weirdest UM threads ever were.
Someone posted your 'Dr 58' thread.
I was hooked.

The only thing that was a problem is that I went to your blog, then the UM blog in search of ordered (start to current) Dr 58 writings... I read them back to front (chronologically) for a while (stupid UM setup) and then realised I missed a big chunk in the middle (because the original thread is over 50 pages!)
Hopefuly one day you will put them all in order in one place!
I am now going back to read the bits I missed in the UM thread - then I eagerly await to see what the Shadow People did!

Having read all these, I am now absolutely KICKING myself that I abandoned my attempts at OBEs and was even too lazy to get good at lucid dreaming!

Well.... time to start again!

THANKS for sharing all this!
