Regarding people with a high Quality of Consciousness, QOC, requiring less food, while it is not a normal aspect of looking at things based upon the principles of MBT
, I would say that it is likely. Your QOC is not something which you as an individual incarnated here in PMR can actually gauge. It is simply not directly available to you or others. That is not to say that there might not be opinions held but there is not real certainty. Now as to the question of requiring less food, such an individual with much above the ordinary QOC would be eating with pretty good probability to sustain its activity level, energy level and physical integrity of its body under the PMR rule set. It would not be eating for purposes of entertainment, compensation for other negatives in its environment or sensory gratification. That in all probability to my viewpoint translates to eating minimally and certainly less that others who do eat for extraneous purposes than simple optimum nourishment. It is probable that such a person would be a vegetarian of some form, at least not eating the bodies of other sentient/conscious creatures. Tom has discussed this to some degree on the board. He chooses to not eat meat but will not as a guest at someone's table be rude or insensitive to his host by refusing what is offered. It is after all too late at that time to minimize the deaths of sentient creatures early in their life cycle just for the purpose of eating them. It is already dead and cooked, whether raised and slaughtered humanely or not. Insulting your host by refusing will not bring it back.
Regarding your dreams. That is a primary way that the Larger Consciousness System, LCS, communicates with and teaches us. I described some dreams to Tom for example which he recognized as training in teaching and counseling. Because we do not retain our dreams in our consciousness does not mean that we are not receiving benefit and information from them. Early on when Tom first asked me to post on his board to answer questions so that he could spend his time on the 'lecture circuit' and less time here on the board, I would frequently wait before answering posts until I could sleep and 'dream' the answer, which I might not consciously remember, especially as I tend to run a little sleep deprived as I wake up ever 1 or 2 sleep cycles, but the answer was there when I went to answer the post in question. I do less of that now as I have more of his model and how things operate in my conscious mind than previously and as far as that goes, I routinely answer questions that I do not consciously have the answer to but find I do have the correct answer. An example is in my answer to you above regarding eating less with high QOC which I had never had reason to directly think about but am perfectly satisfied that the answer I gave you is correct. Tom does come on the board to read around and occasionally post and has so far not chosen to correct anything that I have so posted as incorrect.
As a 'practicing' and I presume academic philosopher, perhaps you might like to look at our Wiki where Tom's model for reality is written out in a little more detail than in his books. http://wiki.my-big-toe.com/index.php/Th ... _Link_Page
Another page that you might be interested in as a philosopher, or in which I would be interested in your comments on, is the page I recently added to the Wiki on metaphysics, particularly as within MBT
I am going to terminate this here as the board will be taken down sometime relatively soon for repairs.
