Sorry I meant to say the aum is not infinite even though It may seem that way. I just caught it before you posted so I doubt you saw. Ok so when the AUM creates an IUOC it transfers awareness in a way from the big picture to a fraction of it? So conscioussness never really grows right? It is just being recycled constantly. Is Consciousness always using all of it's "energy"? Does it come to a point where it no longer has the required awareness to create more and keep track of everything that is going on, then waits so to speak till it no longer needs certain subsets, and then "recycles" them in order to create the newest subset it has in mind to further its understanding of itself?
Am I correct on my thinking? Im just trying to get a grip on what I have maped out in my head of all this.
AUM is apparently infinite, but finite.
There is no transfer of awareness. Awareness is developed. An IUOC is not necessarily created by the whole AUM or the "head" of AUM as a metaphor. An IUOC or a group of IUOCs (still also a IUOC sincde defined as a subset of Consciousness) can create another IUOC. The most common scenario according to Tom is that an IUOC is created with very basic data and just the capacity to evolve. It is then submitted to experiences in VRs, so that it can evolve.
AUM does not grow as a spatial grow but it can grow its capacity by subdividing itself. According to Tom, AUM does not have problems of generating enough capacity. It is also capable of recycling, like you mentioned. Awareness is something that can develop by experience. I don't know if you are getting confused about awareness. Also, you may tend to think that everything is centralized. It may have been centralized at a certain point at the beginning, but it is now a very complex system, and it is not just the CEO doing everything but a whole corporation with multiple companies and branches, and those divisions can expand as well, and have their powers. It has a structure with multiple fractal levels. When a client needs help, it is not usually a CEO responding but somebody available in technical support, that may have actually volunteered for the job :)
