Bob Monroe was big on this earth addiction concept...see his YouTube recordings
Yes he sure was... He came up with the "Maintaining escape velocity" idea.
I have seen most of his recordings and also read his books.
I may be wrong, but I thought one of the biggest concepts of the Monroe Institute was to gather up escape velocity. Isn't that what the logo is about? The individual breaking out of this Time space illusion, or PMR?
Maintaining escape velocity = lowering entropy ?
I love your avatar and signature, kroeran =)
don't know about the logo..could just be to represent OBE? I am not a serious TMI dude other than reading about it...there are others that can speak to that.
I have delegated meditation to the avatar, as I am too lazy/hyper to do it, ; - )
Seems that once you are at a certain point of Quality, the benefit of earth incarnation is a wash, but as Bob said, you come back for strawberries or whatever...you form an addiction to the earth experience, when you might be better off moving on to higher games - but this is how Bob was interpreting things from his framework
Tom's interpretation is more like a mission debrief, needs assessment, next mission selection, memory suspension/belief wiping, then deployment for another round of lessons working from the new higher quality set point
regarding your signature, I would say that peace and truth can be good, but chaos and beautiful lies may be more effective at generating quality
like, much of your life experience is a useful, virtual, beautiful untruth
It could and probably is representing just an OBE =)
I agree with what you say about when at a certain point of CoQ, whatever I experience or desire to experience it always ends up being an illusion. Even love, it seemed for a while, was an illusion. It is my understanding now that love is not an illusion, only the major concept of love in humanity at this time is. Stroking eachothers ego, which never lasts. I sometimes experience this true dynamical love, and in order to maintain and make it last I need to let go of all the illusions I think I need and want to experience.
This may be my point of QoC at this time.
I can relate to Tom's interpretation a lot, but Bob's interpretation also makes a lot of sense. In deed Tom's interpretation may be more efficient and faster to move to higher points of QoC. It's kind of like more realistic, and free of illusions, while Monroe's is more trusting on emotions. And that makes the process slower, but more fun, imo.
About my signatures, well, I guess you are right. One of my greatest desires is to visit this PMR when QoC is at it's finest for mankind. Mainly of empathical reasons. And about the truth, well, it is a personal story. It may not be as efficient as lies and chaos to increase QoC. I now feel I must change it. =)
