Troll the past for beginnings, through many levels and vision breaks; break vision in the past, seeing the paths vision clears.
I'm a bouncer. Not the Roadhouse variety, not while I'm here. To understand me, you have to understand where we both are right now--you reading [hearing this], and, me, when you're doing so and the nature of existence. For here and now; I'm called Padre. Try not to read too much into that.
We occupy threads in the webs of time and space, and in times of peak, you bounce to your ongoing travel on the web, while you replace you when you go. The difference is do you know it?
Have you ever had a moment where everything really slows down or really speeds up?
Your life flashing in living color [some parts in black and white] before your eyes?
That sense of de'ja vue?
That bone-deep sense of WTF?
Some of these are very minor. You haven't moved far from where you were to where you are now. Afterwards, there may be just a few changes--a few things moved or missing. Friends and family may seem a bit off on memories of past events, occasionally an old photo or video will show you something you know didn't occur-- nothing major. This will happen (mostly) after de'ja vue and speed up/down events. Ninety percent of inconsistencies will be disregarded or "explained" in a fashion that won't warp your fragile minds. The other 10 percent will make you think. Right now, many of you reading this are remembering your own events and wondering where this is going. I'm telling you now, if you value "stability" and a "fixed" reality, stop now and switch to something else.
Consider this to be a viral meme and go somewhere else. Knowledge is not always welcome, and, quite honestly, the majority of people don't want things to change radically.
For those who remain, know that ignorant bouncing is useless. Ignorance of bouncing can be fatal for one of you. Knowing can be scary, fun, and combinations thereof. Or you might lose your mind. On the plus side, if you do, you won't miss it.
First, you have to understand time and paradox, and then you have to understand the nature of soul.
There are multiple timelines and dimensions. Consider that some lines are local and others are not. Observation alters reality, the extent of which is dependent upon knowledge. Time is not a river, it is an ocean. Reality is layered, not whole. Paradox is not possible because time heals its own wounds.
THE THREAD OF YOUR LIFE CONSISTS OF MANY STRANDS. You turned right instead of left, went in instead of out, said yes instead of no; this is basic. But these minor "spinoffs" are not permanent because they are dependent upon observation AND the memories of yourself AND others. Over time, these "spinoffs" will merge back into the main thread of your life. Now your thread interacts with other threads, other lives, and the entangled memories of these threads form what we perceive as "reality". Over time, the belief in our observations "creates" the worldview we exist in--what we'll call our dimension. Dimensional travel, which differs from thread travel, produces the WTF moments when you move into a dimension with a major variation. While there are ALWAYS exemptions to every rule, major jumps are generally proceeded by "I'm gonna die" events or serious injuries. Edgar Cayce is an example of the latter. Consider this:
The progenitors of many of our "religions" found enlightenment AFTER periods of removal from the rest of humanity. From "40 days" in the desert to contemplation of the "bo tree" and from ascetics in cells to monks in caves, they involved people who voluntarily removed themselves from entanglement with other threads while examining self/reality. Serious studies into the nature of reality sets your line differently than others. Removal from entanglement frees the soul who knows to travel the points of power. Our modern society presents more opportunities to "see" differences (changes) because of our ability to "freeze" events on film, in books, and other recordings. It's far easier to ignore a "memory" than a picture, voice or print.
