Everyone experiences reality. Pretty much everyone has a central point of awareness, that thing they are thinking about consciously, right now. I think it safe to say that most everyone also has a huge section of their mind working subconsciously, that is below the level of active concentrated thinking, at keeping things running. We also often switch from one concentrated thought to another, with almost no transition time. What if that switch is nothing less than us actually transporting ourselves into a parallel universe, one in which we are concentrating on slightly different subject matter. Maybe, when that cell phone rings while we are driving we aren’t actually turning around our thinking about the road in order to think about the call, but we are actually instantaneously shifting to a different universe in which we are thinking about the call and not about the road.
This concept may not be of any value to us, as the result on our daily lives seems to be identical no matter which way we think about it, or if we think about it at all, but there is one difference; if there are parallel universes containing versions of each of us all doing everything slightly different, it might explain how we can sometimes do such a complete and nearly instantaneous ‘about face’.
In ordinary thinking mode we normally plod along, making very minor changes in our opinions and it is all very predictable…as facts are learned, as experiences in life are added, we move in a different direction from before. Once in a while though, we seem to snap completely into a radically new direction, with seemingly no facts or experiences to justify it. Maybe, just maybe, we’ve overshot the next universe, and moved over 10, 20, or more than a hundred. Who knows?
Maybe visionaries, or even us while we are in a dream state, are actually experiencing those more distant universes; ones in which we are totally different in our thinking, in how we see the world around us. Maybe that is what we need most…large leaps into ‘new to us’ worlds, and to forget about the plodding changes getting us almost nowhere.
Incremental changes are all fine and dandy if you have endless time, endless resources, and endless patience, but whilst people (and our planet if you look at it environmentally) are suffering badly it would be best to make immediate and dramatic improvements.
The glacial change towards acceptance of homosexuality, admittedly nearly a galloping glacier here and there, is nothing but pathetic. The change needs to be rapid, with full acceptance, and indeed, embracing of same sex attraction. The world has too many people on it for what it can sustain, and wholesale change to same sex activity is the most acceptable way to reduce the population pressure. If, instead of breeding ever more children as the result of heterosexual intercourse, we keep to the same sex, it wouldn’t take too long to bring the population down, whilst not hurting (or killing) anyone in the process. In some parallel universe this may already be happening; we just need to all shift there immediately.
