Hello All,

As some of you already know, I have been building an index for MBT (at Tom's request) in my spare time since January. I wanted to have it ready in time for the most recent printing but unfortunately I could not pull it together in time and now I've reached an impasse.

My plan was to have at least 1000 entries. So far I only have about 300, some of which I am not sure whether to include.

Now I am asking any and all of you who would like to be involved in this index-building project to join me in my efforts. Having witnessed the teamwork on the translation project, I feel that together we can build something really wonderful: intuitive - precognitive - an index that knows ahead of time what words and phrases will be searched within it and makes sure to contain those entries.

I am posting what I've got so far and opening it up for review and debate. If I've included entries you feel don't belong in there, please let us know what they are and why. But more importantly, please help me find entries that belong in there that I haven't included. I also think sub-entries are important and will ask for input with respect to those as well, as I haven't the faintest idea how to go about it.

The page numbers refer to the paperback version of the all-in-one trilogy.

The entries that don't have page numbers beside them were words I felt belonged in the index but could not find the appropriate instance.

In most cases, I made note of the context of the entry I selected. This list may not match perfectly with the above, but this should make it clear why I chose the instances I chose.

Entry: p# Context
dimensionality p. 145 Dimensionality is like your family tree, it has the property of breadth as well as depth.

religion p. 158 There are those few who after subtracting organization, socialization, status, tradition, habit, dogma, creed, ritual, and belief from their religion still have something left over that is very significant. For these people, religion is a personal spiritual experience that enables them to evolve the quality of their consciousness as effectively as any other spiritual path.

awareness p. 208 Awareness grows and evolves similarly to how physical bodies have grown and evolved. That is an important concept to understand.

complexity p. 218 Awareness, complexity, and useful control grow with the number of potential states or possibilities AUO can profitably explore (reach through evolution).

precognition p. 337 Most precognition occurs in the margins - like a hot spring, or unpredictable geyser.

balance p. 374 When right being and right action are natural, easy and obvious, you are in balance.

Altered State p. 55 I had shown that an altered consciousness directed by intent can consistently and directly affect and interact with real things such as my computer code.

daydreams p. 56 Daydreaming is one specific type of altered state.

Altered State p. 55 In contrast to conceptual constructs such as justice and love, altered states of consciousness and their objective results seemed to be measurable, consistent, and reasonably well defined.

belief trap There is a whole chapter called beware of the belief trap. How do you index something like that?

Results p, 164 Here, the word "results," at the most basic level, refers to significant, continuing verifiable progress toward the improvement of the quality of your conscious being, the evolution of mind, the growing-up and maturing of spirit.

learning p. 111 I also learned that the bigger picture was centered on the quality of your consciousness, the evolution of your being, and that my experience could be scientifically explained. Eventually, it became apparent that the rate of learning accelerates. The more you know, the faster you learn.

beliefs p. 115 It is our personal beliefs that determine what we consider to be mystical.

awareness p. 119 We cannot be aware of what is beyond our awareness. However, we can be open to learning new things, and in the process, expand the scope of our awareness - and therefore our reality - to its outer limits.

Physics p. 121 It is often said there is nothing as outrageous or strange as the truth. The truth of that statement, clearly demonstrated by modern physics, demands an open-minded approach.

ego p. 121 we almost always let our egos trick us into believing that we are much less ignorant than we actually are.

belief trap p. 124 Without this realization, our perspective and capacity to understand is trapped in a conceptual prison (a belief trap) of our own making.

Big Truth p. 128 Big Truth must be understood deeply to be effectively applied.


ego p. 128 The discomforting anxiety disappears as pseudo-knowledge is manufactured by the ego to deny ignorance its due.

psi p. 132 Let's take a short break to define the word "psi." Psi is a familiar term among parapsychologists and others who are engaged in studying and exploring the capabilities of mind. Psi events generally refer to unusual artifacts of consciousness, specifically to paranormal events associated with mental abilities or altered states of consciousness. Psi is often used as a synonym for Parapsychological - thus the term "psi phenomena" refers to measurable physical phenomena that are produced by some characteristic or ability of mind that is presently beyond traditional scientific explanation. For example, telepathic communication, precognition, and remote viewing are a few commonly experienced and researched psi events. The terms "psi energy" and "psi forces" are often used to imply some unknown theoretical causal mechanism that is assumed to lie behind psi phenomena.

remote viewing p. 132 For example, telepathic communication, precognition, and remote viewing are a few commonly experienced and researched psi events. The terms "psi energy" and "psi forces" are often used to imply some unknown theoretical causal mechanism that is assumed to lie behind psi phenomena.

telepathy p. 132 For example, telepathic communication, precognition, and remote viewing are a few commonly experienced and researched psi events. The terms "psi energy" and "psi forces" are often used to imply some unknown theoretical causal mechanism that is assumed to lie behind psi phenomena.

precognition p. 132 For example, telepathic communication, precognition, and remote viewing are a few commonly experienced and researched psi events. The terms "psi energy" and "psi forces" are often used to imply some unknown theoretical causal mechanism that is assumed to lie behind psi phenomena.

wisdom p. 134 Knowing the difference between knowledge and belief relevant to any particular piece of subjective information is called wisdom.

Big Truth p. 135 There is no safety in numbers with regard to discovering Big Truth.

beliefs p. 140 Cultural, religious, scientific and personal beliefs can be extremely subtle and are often invisible to the individuals and to the members of the group that share them.

wisdom p. 140 No group, regardless of how small or large, can possibly create and bestow experience-based understanding, integrity, and personal growth (the basis of wisdom) upon an individual.

belief trap p. 141 If ego (I must be right, my needs, opinions and beliefs define the truth), fear (of the unknown, being wrong, disapproval, imperfection, failure, God, or of the unholy enemy), and peer pressure (this is the way everybody else thinks, therefore it must be right, or at least safe) have influence or veto power over what thoughts you can honestly and seriously entertain, then you are caught in one or more belief traps - even if you don't want to terminate those degenerates who are screwing it up for the rest of us.

Personal Science p. 142 In contrast, it is the personal science, philosophy, and quality of the individual that must supply the fire at the creative core of human existence. Only the individual can bring content, direction, quality, and value to the power of numbers.

paranormal p. 143 What is beyond PMR may seem mystical to us and can, within the causality of its own dimension, logically violate our 3D objective causality resulting in measurable PMR effects that we often label as paranormal. Paranormal essentially means acausal - beyond the normal cause and effect relationships defined by our limited PMR physical science. Once the limitations of PMR science are surmounted, what was once defined as paranormal becomes a normal part of a larger scientific understanding that answers to a higher (more general) level of causality.

dimension p. 144 And so on and so forth as each larger dimension of existence supports, and is a super-set of, the next one down.

dimension p. 145 We see that beginnings belong to, and are governed by, the rules of causality of the next higher dimension. Each dimension of existence births and nurtures the child dimensions it spawns. A child can (but is not required to) become a parent. One parent can birth many children. Each child exists within its own dimension.

dimensionality p. 145 Though Flatland deals only with geometric or spatial dimensions, the difficulties encountered in perceiving and understanding a dimensionality that is different from one's native perceptual construct are much the same.

dimensionality p. 145 I will describe and discuss both in great detail later, as well as explain what dimensionality actually is and how it is generated.

reality subsystems p. 146 Reality subsystems, each with their own local causality, can be likened to the software components and subroutines of a large complex simulation - all run interdependently within the same computer as long as they have self-consistent rule-sets to define their internal and external interactions.

comprehension? Understanding? p. 146 There may be relationships and interactions between causal systems, but comprehension and understanding normally flows in only one direction - from the superset to the subset. The subset does not have what it takes to understand the superset. To understand the superset, one must first become a member of it.

beliefs p. 149 Our beliefs set the boundaries and define the limits of our science - they always have and any reasonably accurate history of science will verify that fact. Most scientists, from pre-history to the present day, feel that though belief obviously blinded their forebears, it does not seriously inhibit their own clear vision. As time passes, the belief-blindness of those who came before appears more and more ridiculous yet current belief-blindness remains as invisible as ever.

science p. 150 We believe there are always objective causes for every effect and every event whether we know what they are or not. Determining what those causes are and discovering their rules is what we call science.

Big Truth p. 153 In matters of Big Truth, you cannot teach, much less force, someone to get it.

knowledge p. 153 Undeniably, a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. That is particularly true of knowledge gained from others when the recipients do not have the personal quality to have derived that knowledge on their own, thus guaranteeing that misunderstandings will occur and that it will be impossible for the recipients to make distinctions between knowledge and pseudo-knowledge. In matters of Big Truth, you cannot teach, much less force, someone to get it.

Big Truth p. 154 As a teacher, it is better to wait until your students are ready than to push Big Truth into an apparent position of mystical misconception within their minds. As a student, it is better to wait until you are ready (have grown up enough) to understand Big Truth at a profound level than to leap headlong into a belief trap, thinking that you have taken a shortcut to knowledge and wisdom. You cannot access understanding and wisdom that is beyond what the quality of your consciousness can naturally support. Every individuated unit of consciousness must develop in its own unique way, powered by the free will that drives its intent.

IUOC p. 154 Every individuated unit of consciousness must develop in its own unique way, powered by the free will that drives its intent.

beliefs p. 154 Beliefs appear to make life easier, less work, and happier, at least in the short run. Without them we must face our ignorance, our uncertainty, our inadequacy, and our fear - anything is better than that.

Free will p. 154 Every individuated unit of consciousness must develop in its own unique way, powered by the free will that drives its intent.

intent p. 154 Every individuated unit of consciousness must develop in its own unique way, powered by the free will that drives its intent.

Physics p. 155 Given the accepted scientific facts of wave-particle duality, paradoxical entangled particle pairs that instantaneously communicate, and statistically based material existence, modern physics itself is pushing the notion of our cherished objective reality into the subjective mind space of the experimenter.

Spiritual Growth p. 157 Spiritual growth, personal growth, improving the quality of your consciousness, evolving your being, increasing your capacity to love, and decreasing the entropy of your consciousness are all essentially synonymous and equivalent.

science p. 157 Certainly, most religions do not believe that PMR is all there is, and religion, as well as science, is a significant part of our cultural heritage.

mysticism p. 157 Nonetheless, the organization and codification of mysticism into various religious doctrines and dogmas is of little value. That we as a culture permit a limited and narrowly focused mysticism (various religious dogmas) to coexist and blend with our scientific dogma serves only to confuse, distort, and restrict our ability to deal with the real issue of consciousness quality.

consciousness quality p. 157 Consciousness quality is a personal achievement that can only be developed by an individual - it is not a group endeavor. It has absolutely nothing to do with creed, dogma, or belief. An individual's quality cannot beincreased one single iota by any belief, or by accumulating information about anything, or by doing good deeds that are not properly motivated, or by talking to others or reading books.

religion p. 157 Certainly, most religions do not believe that PMR is all there is, and religion, as well as science, is a significant part of our cultural heritage.

logical progression(s) p. 157 logical progressions must take the time to develop their logic one step at a time.

religion p. 158 When I use the word "religion" here, I am speaking only of institutionalized dogma or organized religion, which represents how the great majority of people are connected to religion.

inefficiency p. 158 Inefficiency is not a crime; if it were, we would all be in jail.

condemnation p. 158 Condemnation typically flows from arrogance and is not likely to be part of a helpful process nor is it likely to be a good technique for fostering understanding or improving communication.

arrogance p. 158 Condemnation typically flows from arrogance and is not likely to be part of a helpful process nor is it likely to be a good technique for fostering understanding or improving communication. This trilogy is about being helpful, improving understanding, and reducing ego and arrogance.

dogma p. 159 It is possible, though exceedingly unusual, for an individual to lose ego and gain consciousness quality in pursuit of a favorite dogma. For most of us, dogma erects barriers on our path to personal growth, distracts us from what is truly important, confuses our sense of what is right and wrong, arbitrarily limits our reality by snagging us in belief traps, and tends to make us more egocentric, arrogant, and self- righteous. We readily embrace dogma because it soothes our fearful ignorance with a comforting salve of easy to obtain pseudo-knowledge, and because its downside always falls outside our awareness. However, there are a few who outwardly appear to be in pursuit of dogma because of their habits of ritual and association, yet inwardly they have grown beyond its limitations. For these individuals, the dogma (along with any associated ritual) becomes a familiar pattern of doing that is similar in function to a meditation mantra.

Big Truth p. 161 They think that if they find the right religion, organization, book, teacher, guru, or advisor, they can minimize the effort required to develop their personal experience of Big Truth because the teacher will explain what is true and they will simply believe it.

wisdom p. 161 Though knowledge can be passed from person to person, wisdom is derived only through your personal experience and is nontransferable from others.

consciousness quality p. 161 You cannot believe your way into consciousness quality any more than you can believe your way into being a master violinist, sumo wrestler, or the president of your country.

knowledge p. 161 Though knowledge can be passed from person to person, wisdom is derived only through your personal experience and is nontransferable from others.

Spiritual Growth p. 162 I do not want to leave anyone with the impression that spiritual growth (improving the quality and thus decreasing the entropy of your consciousness) is like working in a salt mine. Besides being useful, spiritual growth is also thrilling, interesting, rewarding, fun, and joyful. Once begun, it is so exciting an adventure that you will gladly want to put more of your time and energy toward it. It is also practical: Increasing the quality of your consciousness immediately increases the quality of your life.

It is also practical: Increasing the quality of your consciousness immediately increases the quality of your life.

beliefs p. 162 Your beliefs (cultural, religious, personal, or scientific) are for the most part not relevant to the quality of your consciousness, except that they may retard it by limiting what your mind can think. Evolution is not a matter of passing an exam. It is a matter of how you are, the quality of your being, not what you believe. Beliefs don't often, if ever, translate into quality of being; they are only about using pseudo-knowledge to fill in for unavailable (or difficult to obtain) real knowledge.

Increasing the Quality of Your Consciousness p. 163 Although some guidance by a fellow explorer may help you better understand your challenges and choices, discovering Big Truth and increasing the quality of your consciousness is fundamentally an independent individual effort.

Personal Growth? Subjective Science? Verifiable Results? p. 164 Personal growth is most efficiently and effectively the product of good science. This is subjective science or personal science, not to be confused with either organized or personal religion or objective science. Subjective science is the mother of objective science. Real personal science requires real, verifiable, measurable, objective results. Here, the word "results," at the most basic level, refers to significant, continuing verifiable progress toward the improvement of the quality of your conscious being, the evolution of mind, the growing-up and maturing of spirit. (NOTE - I have Tom's input on this one in an email, just need to dig it up)

Growing-up? Maturing of spirit? Evolution of mind? p. 164 Personal growth is most efficiently and effectively the product of good science. This is subjective science or personal science, not to be confused with either organized or personal religion or objective science. Subjective science is the mother of objective science. Real personal science requires real, verifiable, measurable, objective results. Here, the word "results," at the most basic level, refers to significant, continuing verifiable progress toward the improvement of the quality of your conscious being, the evolution of mind, the growing-up and maturing of spirit.

consciousness quality p. 164 By the end of the next two sections, science will have logically derived the origins, nature, purpose, and mechanics of both spirituality (increasing consciousness quality through evolution) and your physical world.

spirituality p. 164 By the end of the next two sections, science will have logically derived the origins, nature, purpose, and mechanics of both spirituality (increasing consciousness quality through evolution) and your physical world.

change p. 165 Evolution forces choice and change. Remaining the same by choosing the no action option is not possible. Change cannot be avoided. Change can take place as either positive growth or negative deterioration; the individual choices you make ultimately determine the direction (positive or negative) of your growth.

evolution p. 165 Evolution forces choice and change.

Results p. 166 A change in the quality of your being, growth in the quality of your consciousness, evolution of your spirit: these are the results I am talking about - results of the being, not results of the intellect. It is about who you are, not what you know. It is about why you do what you do, not what you say, or what you do. When you start intending, doing, and being differently, you will produce measurable results. The tests you must pass are not written ones. Great factual knowledge cannot help you pass a test of the quality of your being. You are who and what you are - and it shows - no matter how good you might be at controlling your behavior with your intellect.

truth p. 166 Truth is absolute, but how to discover it, and express it within your being, must be personal

Spiritual Growth p. 168 Improving the quality of your consciousness, energizing spiritual growth, and gaining a Big Picture perspective are not accomplished by changing what you do, but by changing what you are. Reread the previous sentence at least twice and think about your need for a physical process to develop your consciousness. You are a product of your culture - you cannot help that. Spiritual growth, improving the quality of your consciousness, is about changing your attitude, expanding your awareness, outgrowing your fears, reducing your ego, and improving your capacity to love.

change p. 168 The prospect of fundamental internal change can be very frightening.When change begins to occur, many people run away because they are terrified of the unknown. They are afraid of where the changes may lead (which is often directly into the face of their fear) and of not being able to intellectually control the process. They find that shaking the foundation of their being at its deepest level is too unsettling an activity.What if the entire I-structure comes tumbling down into ruins? The ego begins to fear its own dissolution and death. Fear and belief cause many well-meaning people to reject fundamental internal change, particularly if their beliefs are incompatible with the required changes. Instead of embracing change and facing fears, many would-be spiritual seekers focus on the external rituals associated with some type of mental or spiritual discipline: They go to church or learn to meditate. Many meditators and a few churchgoers hope to produce measurable external changes and to have cool internal metaphysical experiences.

belief trap p. 169 Belief traps are bigger problems than most of us think they are.

consciousness p. 170 Consciousness is fundamentally individual and personal.

ego p. 170 Because the ego's main job is to keep you feeling good by managing various systems of belief that are designed to keep your fears beyond the reach of your intellectual awareness. Increasing the quality of your consciousness requires you to face your fears, overcome them, and dissolve your ego. You should expect the ego to struggle mightily. Ego does not necessarily imply arrogant self-centeredness. Ego comes in an infinite array of expressions - arrogance is only one. Being timid, unsure, or a worrier are also manifestations of ego. Insecurity and anxiety about that insecurity are common. How each personality expresses that insecurity and anxiety reflects individual quality and style. The strategies that are used to deal with fear, though common at the top level, are uniquely applied to each individual. Great ego reflects great fear; it does not necessarily reflect great arrogance or great pride, though it may reflect both. Self-centered, self-focused, and self-absorbed are three of the many possible aspects of ego - each of these three can be directed either inwardly (producing timidity) or outwardly (producing arrogance) to create personality traits that appear to be opposite. Courage and determination will grow sufficiently to overcome fear if the intent to succeed is sufficiently strong, steady, and clear. I will more carefully define ego and explain its functions (how it works and achieves its goals) in an aside in Chapter 8, Book 2. Go there now if you are seriously confused.

personal reality; personal awareness; "other"; improvement of quality of consciousness? p. 171 Your conscious awareness defines your personal reality. There are as many different shades and levels of personal reality as there are of personal awareness. "Other" provides opportunity for the improvement of the quality of your consciousness by accurately reflecting the truth of you.

conscious awareness p. 171 Your conscious awareness defines your personal reality. There are as many different shades and levels of personal reality as there are of personal awareness. "Other" provides opportunity for the improvement of the quality of your consciousness by accurately reflecting the truth of you.

personal reality p. 171 Your conscious awareness defines your personal reality.

Individual consciousness p. 173 To become aware of your consciousness (as opposed to being aware of the thoughts that inhabit your consciousness) you must eliminate the obsessive preoccupations most of us have with ego based self-definition - the contrasts that you use to define yourself against the relatively unchanging, invisible background of your individual consciousness. Meditation is thus an act of not doing. It is an exercise in removing enough of the contrasting clutter of your mind to get a glimpse of the real you. Individual consciousness is a subset of absolute consciousness. You are not only the clutter, the wrinkles, the ego, the thoughts - even if that is how you unwittingly define yourself. You are much more than that. Meditation allows you to discover that fact in a uniquely personal way. That is its purpose - self-discovery - a glimpse of the fundamental reality of which you are an integral part.

meditation p. 173 Meditation is thus an act of not doing. It is an exercise in removing enough of the contrasting clutter of your mind to get a glimpse of the real you.

meditation p. 173 Do you see why meditation is almost universally prescribed as the first step - the doorway to understanding and exploring consciousness, as well as to the attainment of spiritual growth? It makes sense that a program to develop your consciousness should naturally start with finding and becoming acquainted with that consciousness. There are other methods, but they apply less universally, are more difficult to learn, and are much more difficult to teach. Meditation will work wonderfully when you are ready.

meditation, purpose of p. 173 Meditation allows you to discover that fact in a uniquely personal way. That is its purpose - self-discovery - a glimpse of the fundamental reality of which you are an integral part.

Spiritual Growth p. 179 spiritual growth, as any growth, is an internal process and cannot be forced from the outside.

bootstrapping p. 179 This personalization of the growth process takes place naturally because each individual is essentially engaged in a "bootstrapping" (pulling themselves up by their bootstraps) operation with his or her own consciousness.

"One Source" p. 181 The first assumption, referred to as the Fundamental Process of evolution, is readily understandable and is well within our experience. The second, often called the "Absolute" or the "One Source" by philosophers and theologians, may require our spatially limited worldview and our cultural beliefs to stretch beyond their normal patterns. As it turns out, this "One Source" is simply consciousness - primordial consciousness - the fundamental energy that is the medium of reality.

math p. 183 Math is merely symbolic logic. The limited local logic of the little picture is clearly expressed by little picture mathematics. Within the PMR causality system, if the assumptions are correct and the math is correct, the results will be correct - that is how little picture physics works.

physical reality p. 183 Physical reality and PMR science must be an integral part of any Big TOE. We, after all, are at this moment interacting in what appears quite convincingly as a physical reality. No one can reasonably deny the importance, or the necessity, of physical experience, even if consciousness is at the core. Physical reality and its science must be a necessary, rational, and derivable part of the Big Picture.
digital consciousness p. 183 My Big TOE represents a serious attempt to describe and model the larger reality in which you exist as a digital consciousness.

the larger reality p. 183 In other words, the larger reality (NPMR - consciousness) cannot be fully specified by a limited local logic and knowledge that belongs to a small subset (PMR) of that larger reality. If I could describe My Big TOE in terms of little picture (PMR) mathematics (logic), it could not possibly be more than a little TOE. That is one of the invisible walls that Einstein ran into with his failed Unified Field Theory - he tried to describe the Big Picture exclusively in terms of little picture logic. At least he knew there was a Big Picture even if he did not know it constituted a superset of the little picture.

little picture p. 184 The traditional belief-blinded little picture perspective will maintain old paradigms and preserve cultural and scientific dogma by simply denying the existence of a larger reality.
truth p. 185 A word about truth. Many people think of truth in terms of local and universal truth. Local truth may be relative. It may be in the eye of the beholder. It is sometimes dependent upon the perspective and beliefs of the individual. This is not the truth I am referring to. Universal or absolute truth is the same for everyone - it is timeless and unchangeable. The paths to absolute truth (Big Truth) and the individuals who walk those paths can be so different that the description of the same absolute truth may appear to be very different - particularly to those of less understanding. Individual interpretations are, as they should be, a reflection of that Big Truth within the mind and experience of that individual.

ego p. 185 This is because all spiritual paths converge on the same absolute truths by means of reducing ego and fear, which are the primary generators of confusion and divisiveness.
fear p. 185 This is because all spiritual paths converge on the same absolute truths by means of reducing ego and fear, which are the primary generators of confusion and divisiveness.

All That Is p. 188 A Oneness that is uniform, plain, and without differentiation. This apparently infinite source of our larger reality has no discernable boundaries, edges, or limits (as a perfectly calm ocean would appear to you if you were floating in the middle of it). This undifferentiated something would seem to be, and has often been called "All That Is," "The One," "The Void," "The Primordial Big Dude," and other similar philosophical descriptions.

intellectual freedom? belief? fear? vigilance? unconditional love? p. 189 Vigilance and unending effort are the nonnegotiable price of intellectual freedom. A mind that is not free is simply a self- referential belief machine that continuously spins off useless and unprofitable thought energy. Belief and fear are the only ties that can bind a mind, while unconditional love and open minded skepticism set it free. A body may be enslaved by others, while a mind can only be enslaved by itself.

AUO p. 190 You will soon discover that this seemingly infinite Absolute Unbounded Oneness (AUO) is not infinite. Nor is it absolute, unbounded, or a oneness - but only appears to be an infinite absolute unbounded oneness from a limited point of view within PMR. Although the name Absolute Unbounded Oneness is a descriptive misnomer, I use it because many readers will find the concept to be comfortably familiar.

Fundamental Process p. 191 The remaining ingredient is what I call the "Fundamental Process." The Fundamental Process is the basic process of evolution. It is the repetitive pattern of trial and error, of spontaneous change and choice, of random events and encouraged behavior that enables evolution to result in progress. Progress is defined as change within an entity or group of entities that is in some way immediately beneficial or profitable to that entity. Profitable change leaves the entity or its group, or both, in a comparatively better, stronger, more functional, capable, and successful position relative to its internal and external environments.

Progress p. 191 It is the repetitive pattern of trial and error, of spontaneous change and choice, of random events and encouraged behavior that enables evolution to result in progress. Progress is defined as change within an entity or group of entities that is in some way immediately beneficial or profitable to that entity. Profitable change leaves the entity or its group, or both, in a comparatively better, stronger, more functional, capable, and successful position relative to its internal and external environments.

entity p. 191 An entity is a well defined, self-contained (bounded) interactive system. It can be an atom, molecule, rock, technology, computer, worm, monkey, human, organization, city, nation, planet, or an aware individual nonphysical consciousness. The interaction of an entity with its internal and external environments is constrained by what those environments will support, encourage, or discourage.

constraints p. 191 The interaction of an entity with its internal and external environments is constrained by what those environments will support, encourage, or discourage. Thus, constraints that reflect the demands of the internal and external environments define the criteria for profitability and are the source of evolutionary pressure that pushes every evolving entity forward.
interaction p. 191 The interaction of an entity with its internal and external environments is constrained by what those environments will support, encourage, or discourage.

AUO p. 191 The concept of an apparently infinite Absolute Unbounded Oneness (AUO) is only half the ingredients we need to grow a new Big TOE.
Fundamental Process p. 192 The Fundamental Process, as it is applied to a complex entity, moves that entity toward those internal and external states of being that are the most immediately profitable. This motion is the result of external and internal pressures

changes p. 192 Changes (evolutionary motion) that result from external pressures can be viewed as the cumulative results of the dynamic interactions between an individual entity and everything else, which in aggregate constitutes its external (outside) environment. Evolutionary motion that results from internal pressures can be viewed as the cumulative results of the choices that an individual entity makes relative to all available internal configurations and potential states of being.

evolutionary motion p. 192 Changes (evolutionary motion) that result from external pressures can be viewed as the cumulative results of the dynamic interactions between an individual entity and everything else, which in aggregate constitutes its external (outside) environment. Evolutionary motion that results from internal pressures can be viewed as the cumulative results of the choices that an individual entity makes relative to all available internal configurations and potential states of being.

fear p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

ego p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

love p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

purpose p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

stress p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

pleasure p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

growth p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

contentment p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

ambition p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

self-improvement p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

satisfaction p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

confidence p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

self-esteem p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

social interaction p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

internal constraints p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

evolutionary pressure p. 192 Fear, ego, love, purpose, stress, pleasure, growth, contentment, ambition, self- improvement, satisfaction, confidence, self-esteem, and social interaction are a few of the internal constraints creating evolutionary pressure.

systems p. 192 As individuals strive for maximum profitability, groups of interdependent entities may evolve together interactively to form a larger system or ecosystem. Interrelated systems interact with each other to form larger systems (such as earth's biological ecosystem and the solar system). Nothing stands alone - all are interrelated from the perspective of the largest level of organization. This applies to all evolving systems and systems of systems - animal, vegetable, mineral, technological, or organizational - and to subsets of systems (including your brain, stomach, or a networked computer), and to subsets of subsets of systems (including your blood and bone cells, or a microprocessor), and so on and so forth (cell parts and transistors followed by their supporting molecular and atomic layers).

Profitability p. 197 Profitability is defined by the degree of immediate success an entity has in dealing with the evolutionary pressures created by the constraints within their internal and external environments.

change p. 197 ...all things and systems of things are in an active process of change - animal, vegetable, mineral, technological, and organizational - and that the Fundamental Process is the basis for that change.

usable energy p. 198 That is, toward a more profitable configuration or mutually beneficial arrangement - toward a lower energy state for physical matter (higher entropy) or a lower entropy state (higher usable energy) for consciousness.

lifeforms p. 201 All life-forms (biological, consciousness, or otherwise) change themselves.

pain p. 201 Most biological things are aware of their environment (external awareness of things such as hot/cold, acid/base, and wet/dry). Additionally, they are aware of themselves (internal or self-awareness of things such as hungry/full, hydrated/dehydrated, threatened/safe, peaceful/agitated, hurt/not hurt, pain/pleasure, joy/sadness, and fear/love).

adaptation p. 201 Most biological things are aware of their environment (external awareness of things such as hot/cold, acid/base, and wet/dry). Additionally, they are aware of themselves (internal or self-awareness of things such as hungry/full, hydrated/dehydrated, threatened/safe, peaceful/agitated, hurt/not hurt, pain/pleasure, joy/sadness, and fear/love). All life-forms (biological, consciousness, or otherwise) change themselves. Sometimes the change is in reaction to their environment - they adapt. Sometimes the change is internally generated - they mutate.

mutation p. 201 Most biological things are aware of their environment (external awareness of things such as hot/cold, acid/base, and wet/dry). Additionally, they are aware of themselves (internal or self-awareness of things such as hungry/full, hydrated/dehydrated, threatened/safe, peaceful/agitated, hurt/not hurt, pain/pleasure, joy/sadness, and fear/love). All life-forms (biological, consciousness, or otherwise) change themselves. Sometimes the change is in reaction to their environment - they adapt. Sometimes the change is internally generated - they mutate.

AUO p. 203 For our purposes, we utilize only the bare basics of this concept, no frills, no dogma, and no extraneous conditions or attributes - just a plain, simple, minimalistic Absolute Unbounded Oneness - a form of potential energy that appears to be nonphysical from the limited PMR point of view.

awareness p. 207 Awareness is a characteristic of consciousness.

awareness p. 208 By now, it should be clear that developing and evolving awareness is a standard, normal and natural happening among biological entities.

awareness p. 209 Awareness at the cellular (dim) level evolves naturally from the existence of a rich and varied array of available potential states.

intelligence p. 209 I will show that AUO meets the requirements for developing awareness and eventually intelligence.

Individual consciousness p. 210 Our individual consciousness reflects the pattern of AUO as a piece of a hologram, or each individual element of a large fractal design, contains the pattern that defines the whole.

hologram p. 210 Our individual consciousness reflects the pattern of AUO as a piece of a hologram, or each individual element of a large fractal design, contains the pattern that defines the whole.

evolutionary profitability p. 214 Over the next several chapters we will see how a digital model of highly aware consciousness can be derived from a single monolithic consciousness system that is driven to ever lower values of average entropy (higher values of usable energy) by the requirements of evolutionary profitability.

usable energy p. 214 Over the next several chapters we will see how a digital model of highly aware consciousness can be derived from a single monolithic consciousness system that is driven to ever lower values of average entropy (higher values of usable energy) by the requirements of evolutionary profitability.

duality p. 215 It can first create a duality within itself. This vs. not this. It can alter its uniformity to create a local disturbance or distortion. Then there exists, distorted relative to non-distorted. A duality has been created.

awareness p. 218

complexity p. 218 Likewise, complexity, however simple, always generates greater possibilities for the evolving entity to investigate.

diversity p. 219 Where many choices can be profitable, the outcome is great diversity.

survival p. 220 Within biological forms and functions, diversification and specialization are primarily driven by two basic pressures: survival and propagation.

propagation p. 220 Within biological forms and functions, diversification and specialization are primarily driven by two basic pressures: survival and propagation.

industrialization p. 220 Industrialization is a process that in the short-run turns natural resources into wealth, power, and a higher standard of living.

global systems p. 221 In global systems, individual players always have bit parts, yet all are vitally important, even from a system perspective.

intelligence p. 221 However, let me remind you that intelligence and education are attributes of individuals, not groups - you cannot pass the buck or abdicate your personal responsibility (rely on somebody else to solve a shared problem) without becoming part of the problem.

responsibility p. 221 It appears 5 times on p. 221 of the all-in-one

consciousness quality p. 223 It is not a lack of intellectual capacity that is at the root of humankind's self- inflicted difficulties and dysfunctional behavior. The fundamental problem is the lack of quality in consciousness. Quality is the issue, not quantity or capacity. We obviously have more processing capacity within our consciousness than we have the quality, maturity, or wisdom to put that capacity to good use. As a species, we are out of balance - and that is not good.


self-improvement p. 223 What is creating evolutionary pressure if we are no longer preoccupied with the traditional issues of survival and species propagation? We have become aware enough and capable enough that self-improvement is now our main goal. Most importantly, that means spiritual evolution, or equivalently, the improvement of the quality of our consciousness. Selfimprovement could also mean the development of science and application of technology that might eventually result in spindly arms and legs, or merely developing a more civilized civilization. It could also mean something as quick and direct as human genetic engineering.

human genetic engineering p. 223 What is creating evolutionary pressure if we are no longer preoccupied with the traditional issues of survival and species propagation? We have become aware enough and capable enough that self-improvement is now our main goal. Most importantly, that means spiritual evolution, or equivalently, the improvement of the quality of our consciousness.

change p. 226 Change one thing and everything is affected, including the external and internal environments of the individual entities that make up the system. Change is constant . and often chaotic.

diversity p. 226 Thus, with fewer constraints, evolution delivers more diversity because there is always someplace to go.

evolutionary potential p. 226 However, keep in mind that evolutionary potential is dynamic.

survival p. 226 Survival and propagation represent the external pressures or constraints of a biological environment.

external pressures p. 226 Survival and propagation represent the external pressures or constraints of a biological environment.

propagation p. 226 Survival and propagation represent the external pressures or constraints of a biological environment.

profitability p. 227 Optimal profitability, as it is constrained and prodded by internal and external environments, defines evolutionary success.

evolutionary success p. 227 Optimal profitability, as it is constrained and prodded by internal and external environments, defines evolutionary success.

immortal p. 227 Because survival and propagation do not constrain our timeless, immortal, space-less, apparently infinite AUO, it would seem to be free to pursue every possibility open to it. If you happen to be apparently infinite, spatially unrestrained, timeless, immortal, multi-dimensional, and aware, you have tremendous potentiality.

complexity p. 228 For now it is enough to understand that through increased complexity in relation to itself, AUO escapes atrophy and puts its limited energy (ability to modify itself, to change its internal environment) to the most profitable use - continually redefining and improving its overall capacity, quality, and awareness.

self-improvement p. 229 Survival and procreation are giving way to self- improvement as the defining evolutionary constraint for human-kind.
evolutionary profitability p. 230 For now it is enough to know that the capacity and capability to effectively self-organize toward some purpose (evolutionary profitability) is critical to forming and maintaining aware consciousness and all life as we know it.

civilization p. 234 Civilization is about ordered patterns defined by profitability and constraints - so is everything else, including consciousness.

Spiritual Growth p. 235

TBC p. 235 The Big Computer is just that - memory, processing, rules, operations, and content. It is not necessarily The Big Brain as we think of it in biological (discrete physical organ) terms. At this point, it is more of a memory- intensive computationally based process that provides improved organization to a relatively dim cellular mind. Think of TBC as a digital computational functionality (based upon discrete reality cells) that naturally evolved to improve organization, and thus reduce entropy, within the energy form we call AUO.

dimension p. 236 We now know almost enough to pull together a better understanding of the word "dimension."We have said the larger reality is a multidimensional reality and that PMR and NPMR represent two of those dimensions - but what does that mean?

dimensionality p. 236 What is this dimension thing - If it is not time and not geometric, what is left? Forget about all the sci-fi and fantasy movies you have seen, the dimensionality of reality does not function as the screenwriters for Twilight Zone or the X-Files would have you believe. However, it is true that most realities simultaneously exist within their own dimension and as a subset of a larger reality, and that travel between dimensions is possible - indeed, it is relatively easy once you know how.

the larger reality p. 236 Searching for a fourth and higher dimensions in terms of geometry is also not particularly helpful to the understanding of the larger reality. Reality is not fundamentally geometric. We think it must be geometric because our little picture view is centered in 3D geometric reality and we naturally tend to expand upon what we know.

little picture p. 236 Searching for a fourth and higher dimensions in terms of geometry is also not particularly helpful to the understanding of the larger reality. Reality is not fundamentally geometric. We think it must be geometric because our little picture view is centered in 3D geometric reality and we naturally tend to expand upon what we know.

awareness p. 242 The more awareness and complexity an individual entity or system creates through evolution, the more potential states and possibilities there are to explore.

thoughts p. 242 Consider the speed of your thoughts, the space between consecutive or adjacent ideas, or the patterns of thought in your skeptically open mind. Think about multiple, simultaneous, or regularly occurring thoughts and about having thoughts simultaneously exist in the foreground and background of your mind. Great big thoughts and little tiny thoughts are not spatially large or small. We must guard against imposing our extremely limited 3D conceptual patterns (as well as our sense of time and causality) on AUO.

complexity p. 242 The more awareness and complexity an individual entity or system creates through evolution, the more potential states and possibilities there are to explore.

learning p. 243 For example, education and learning is a bodiless process that obviously accelerates.

"One Source" p. 250 However the consciousness pie is divided up, however many realities may be running as simulations or as sub-sets of larger simulations, all are connected through (and are a part of) the One Source: AUO consciousness.

evolutionary profitability p. 257 We will show that space-time cells must be uniform in form, function, and makeup in order to produce the underlying structure for a simple isotropic experience-space (reality) that can be used to improve AUM's evolutionary profitability.

digital simulations p. 257 Digital simulations, like those run on our mainframes or within TBC, generally model what appear to be analog events at the macro level.

space-time p. 257 Space-time subsequently becomes the fundamental medium for a uniquely dimensioned sub- reality or virtual reality within the larger consciousness system.

duality p. 259 Recall that each reality cell exists as a duality, a condition relative to some different condition, each condition existing only in relation to the other.

reality cell p. 259 Recall that each reality cell exists as a duality, a condition relative to some different condition, each condition existing only in relation to the other.

reality cell p. 262 It is ticking in mind-space, within an aware consciousness that can differentiate between this way and that way, flip-flopping atoms of consciousness called reality cells whose state can be manipulated at will and with regularity.

time p. 262 Our time, measured in seconds - fractions of the periodic revolutions of the heavenly bodies or more recently some number of atomic oscillations - is a shadow of Fundamental Time; it is our sensory perception of a specific constrained and limited implementation of the more fundamental time defined by AUM-consciousness.

granularity p. 264 The resolution of the "graphics" (scene generation) defining the "3D pixel size" of the PMR virtual reality, i.e., a measure of the granularity of space -- a 3D quantum of PMR space we have named DELTA-v.

Time or Frequency? Or both? p. 265 Time, or equivalently, frequency is a fundamental attribute of AUM, whereas the notion of space is derived from time specifying a constant velocity of propagation of information.

Cells p. 266 Reality cells, memory cells, binary cells - everything seems to come down to cells. Cells are discrete units of state-specific relational content, and represent both information and organizational substance (not necessarily physical matter). Awareness, form, function, content, and purpose all flow from the possible interactions of reality cells - the basic building blocks of aware consciousness.

reality cell p. 266 Awareness, form, function, content, and purpose all flow from the possible interactions of reality cells - the basic building blocks of aware consciousness.

reality p. 266 The reality in which we interact with each other is a virtual classroom or learning lab designed to help us reduce our individual entropy and grow the quality of our consciousness. As consciousness, that is what we do; that is how evolution challenges us.

granularity p. 266 All cellular and digital creations exhibit granularity at some level of detail.

dimension p. 269 There are other space-time parts (or space-time dimensions) of AUM corresponding to the other PMRs (mentioned in Chapter 4, Book 3).

space-time p. 271 Equivalently, one could say that space-time is a construct of consciousness. Some may be tempted to say that space-time is constructed of consciousness, but that statement is likely to spread more confusion than illumination.

intelligence p. 271 The proliferation of reality cells and the interaction between reality cells creates complexity and a greater potential for self-organization that eventually leads to a more comprehensive lower entropy self-awareness that in turn leads to intelligence, values, personality and purpose.

power p. 271 In scientific terms, a lower entropy consciousness system has more power - more energy available to do work - a higher, more useful level of organization.

organization p. 271 In scientific terms, a lower entropy consciousness system has more power - more energy available to do work - a higher, more useful level of organization.

usable energy p. 271 In scientific terms, a lower entropy consciousness system has more power - more energy available to do work - a higher, more useful level of organization. In common terms, a lower entropy digital system commands more usable energy (more profitable organization) and, therefore, becomes capable of creating greater and more profitable configurations of itself.

AUO p. 271 Primordial AUO is a relatively simple, uniform, high entropy, energy-form that is the basic foundation of consciousness.

Free will p. 272

physical experience p. 272 Physical experience is generated when the perception of an individuated consciousness (sentient being) is constrained to follow the space-time rule-set.

free will choice p. 272 Imagine a specialized space-time virtual reality trainer (operating within a subset of digital calculation-space called a dimension) that is constrained by the space-time rule-set to provide a causally consistent operational experience that enables an individuated consciousness to evolve to lower entropy states by exercising its intent through free will choice.

sentient p. 273 "Sentient" is defined by Microsoft Bookshelf 2000 as "having sense perception; conscious." If we generalize the obvious carbon-based life-forms bias, the definition becomes: having perception, conscious. We might expand this to include: having the ability to interact with, or perceive itself or its environment; having awareness. Terms like "conscious awareness" and "aware consciousness" may seem redundant but using the words "conscious" and "awareness" together emphasizes the fundamental connectedness of both concepts. Do you think that a clam is sentient? Sure, if it pulls in its foot and slams it shell shut to protect itself when you poke it. If it is interactive, it must be aware and therefore sentient.

consciousness quality p. 274 Your consciousness quality rises and falls based upon the intent that animates your everyday interactions.

intent p. 274 Your consciousness quality rises and falls based upon the intent that animates your everyday interactions.

little picture science p. 281 Our contemporary objective knowledge-base sets the limits on what we can collectively imagine, much less comprehend, and it is unlikely that our little picture science can ever hypothesize more than a minute fraction of the possibilities of creation.

conscious awareness p. 284 The fundamental evolutionary process seems to work everywhere - life or conscious awareness or individuated sub-systems of consciousness are merely the result of a purposeful, self- interacting complex system with memory, evolving its way through a large and diverse set of environmentally constrained possibilities.

little picture thinking p. 284 The belief that any life-forms that might exist "out there" must be similar to the lifeforms of earth is a product of little picture thinking.

time p. 284 Time is the same way. From the macro view of our everyday experience, time appears to be continuous.

granularity p. 284 You do not notice the granularity in a slab of steel or a pane of glass unless you can measure distances down to the size of an atom or molecule. The glass, steel, or wood tabletop you set your drink on appears to be solid and continuous although we know it is made up of discrete tiny particles with vast regions of empty space between them - the granularity is imperceptible from the macro view.

Big Truth p. 287 That is the nature of Big Truth. It is either trivially obvious or totally opaque.

space-time p. 295 It is not that we are separate from space-time and live within it, as we live in a house but are not part of the house. We experience space-time as our minds interpret and process the limited perceptions gathered by our senses. Contrary to popular belief, space-time is not a physical construct that we physical beings live within, but rather the result of a ruleset that defines the experiential virtual reality that we perceive.

IUOC p. 296 An individual mind (an individuated unit of consciousness) engaged in an interactive multi-player virtual reality must experience, act, and interact within the bounds prescribed by the causal rule-set that defines that particular reality.

physical reality p. 296 I know that this is confusing, but by the end of Section 4, you will have no trouble understanding that the physical reality you physically experience is merely the experience our consciousness interprets as physical reality. If your sensed physical reality and what your consciousness interprets as physical reality seem the same to you, it is because your culture has convinced you that consciousness is a derivative of the physical body. The experience that our senses interpret as physical reality leads to the conclusion that physical reality is an external reality that our body interacts with (reality is defined by our physical interaction with it). On the other hand, the experience that our consciousness interprets as physical reality leads to the conclusion that physical reality is an internal reality created by the perceptions of consciousness - a virtual physical existence that is defined by our mind's interaction with the space-time rule-set.

virtual reality p. 296 Your physical reality is an interpreted virtual reality that only appears physical.

physical body p. 296 If your sensed physical reality and what your consciousness interprets as physical reality seem the same to you, it is because your culture has convinced you that consciousness is a derivative of the physical body.

space-time p. 297 Space-time is the virtual medium through which the rules of engagement (constraints that define our interactive experience with other "players") are applied.

individual existence p. 297 Our individual existence, like the hand puppets, is the result of constraints defining a dimensional variation in consciousness that individuates a unique entity with free will.

thoughts p. 297 Can one idea (thought-thing) be manifested through (give birth to) another? Sure. Why not? In AUM's world of digital consciousness energy, thoughts (discrete packets of organized content) are real things - the only real things - and AUM can birth (think up or organize) as many as it wants to.

All That Is p. 30 My Big TOE describes, as any Big TOE must, the basic oneness, continuity, and connectedness of All That Is.

pain p. 307 All pain does not come from making the wrong choices. Only self-inflicted (internally caused) pain, which makes up the bulk of our daily ration of pain and suffering, has wrong choices at its fundamental source

IUOC p. 308 One can learn from either right or wrong choices. PMR is designed to serve as a learning lab - a place where units of individuated consciousness (sometimes referred to as beings, entities, or souls) can grow up (improve their quality) by exercising their free will intent within a virtual system of direct interactive experience and feedback.
right and wrong p. 308 Right and wrong in the social or cultural sense is relative and customary - often a diluted and distorted shadow of absolute right and wrong. Absolute right and wrong are operationally defined to optimize the growth (evolution) of the quality of our consciousness, or equivalently, our spiritual development. "Right" intents and choices help us improve the quality of our being, whereas "wrong" intents and choices stimulate no positive growth and may cause us to lose some previously earned quality. Absolute right and wrong (intents, motivations, choices, and actions) are defined and differentiated by the effect they have on the average entropy of the system.

death p. 311 Your physical death initiates a process that eventually creates a new maze for you to explore - your learning is cumulative. You are a participant in, as well as a driver of, the consciousness cycle.

motivation p. 316 Motivation, intent, action, and feedback are all interconnected. Right motivation and right intent are the only sure path to right action, which produces the right feedback to encourage continued right growth and learning.

intent p. 316 Motivation, intent, action, and feedback are all interconnected. Right motivation and right intent are the only sure path to right action, which produces the right feedback to encourage continued right growth and learning.

personal quality p. 316 You gain personal quality the same way you gain strength and endurance or learn to play the piano - by dedication and continual effort applied over a significant period of time.

bootstrapping p. 316 We call this self-teaching incremental self- improvement process "bootstrapping" - you may employ a coach to improve technique and clarify issues, but only you can accomplish self- improvement.

pain p. 318 Unfortunately, our egos are so good at blaming others that even after great suffering we often miss the point that our pain is primarily self- inflicted and trying to tell us something about what we are doing wrong.

thought-forms p. 328 Though you might think that the beings and critters in NPMR are merely thought-forms, whereas the beings and critters in PMR are real life-forms, I will demonstrate in Section 4 that the difference is only apparent - that the distinction between physical and nonphysical is relative to an observer's perspective. The observer's perspective is a function of the constraints and rule-sets that define his interaction with, and perception of, his local virtual reality. You will see that the so-called real lifeforms in PMR are actually thought-forms within AUM as well.

lifeforms p. 328 Though you might think that the beings and critters in NPMR are merely thought-forms, whereas the beings and critters in PMR are real life-forms, I will demonstrate in Section 4 that the difference is only apparent - that the distinction between physical and nonphysical is relative to an observer's perspective. The observer's perspective is a function of the constraints and rule-sets that define his interaction with, and perception of, his local virtual reality. You will see that the so-called real lifeforms in PMR are actually thought-forms within AUM as well.

learning p. 329 These individuated consciousness experience-bumps must be selfmodifying. They must be capable of learning - of self- improvement through multiple evaluative feedback loops. Because these bump-beings are very limited, they must be designed to accumulate knowledge and evolutionary progress by being recycled again and again through many challenging interactions until the FWAU self-destructs or eventually ripens for harvesting.

physical body p. 329 The being we call ourselves (lump in the AUM-sheet) is not dependent on our physical body - it is the other way around. Physical bodies are relatively dense space-time constrained experience-bumps on the lumps in the sheet. These self-perpetuating, low maintenance, biological-matter experience-bumps come with a sensor platform called a "body" to provide experience and immediate feedback, a low-end Free Will Awareness Unit (FWAU), and a lifetime guarantee.

Free Will Awareness Unit p. 329 These self-perpetuating, low maintenance, biological-matter experience-bumps come with a sensor platform called a "body" to provide experience and immediate feedback, a low-end Free Will Awareness Unit (FWAU), and a lifetime guarantee.

local reality? Consciousness evolution? p. 329 Our local reality and everything in it is a product of consciousness evolution.

arrogance p. 330 The proclivity to reinterpret our differences as obvious superiority represents little picture arrogance.

diversity p. 330 Every critter, including you, has its point and its place; diversity is a natural artifact of evolution when there are few constraints.

Free Will Awareness Unit? Soul? Spirit? p. 330 A few people who are unfamiliar with the nomenclature on AUM's design drawings call the FWAU a "soul," "spirit," or simply the "nonphysical component."

thought-forms p. 331 Man, and other beings both physical and nonphysical (as well as all the extant objects found here, there, and everywhere), may be described loosely as thought-forms created within consciousness. It should not be too surprising that within AUM, or in mind-space, the intent, or will of the mind becomes the fundamental or natural force. You will soon see (in the next section) that thought-forms are as real as rocks, and that every real thing is a manifestation of consciousness regardless of how dimly it might reflect that seminal awareness - yes, minerals included.

Spiritual Growth p. 332 Spiritual growth (developing a higher-quality, lower-entropy consciousness) provides for more brightness, capability, effective organization, and more energy to do work; in other words, more personal power.

IUOC p. 334 From the PMR view, consciousness is the nonphysical energy of a self-organizing digital system - it is the energy of profitable organization. The soul, as an individuated unit of consciousness, is a subset of the larger consciousness, a constrained portion of nonphysical energy that contains enough memory and processing capability to support self-optimization through profitable intentional choice or free will.

reality wide web p. 334 It would seem natural, because we are part and parcel of AUM's being, that our minds are chips off the old block so to speak and thus able to communicate over the Reality Wide Web (the RWW constitutes the master network of all consciousness) using individual consciousness intent protocol: icip://RWW.Individuated-consciousness.NPMR.

intuition p. 336 At a deep level, your intuition is awash in molten paranormal information. It is connected directly to the One Source and is on-line at the RWW probable realities home page.

precognition p. 337 Only if your intuition finds a way to vent its content to the surface will you experience a psi event such as precognition - and then only if you are paying attention.

Physics p. 35 Contemporary physics is shown to be a special case of a more general set of basic principles.

choice p. 350 Choices made in pursuit of getting what we want produce occasional material success, anxiety, stress, pain, frustration, emptiness, insecurity, and unhappiness while choices made to express unconditional love produce all types of success, peace, tranquility, confidence, satisfaction, fulfillment, happiness, and joy.

peace p. 350 Choices made in pursuit of getting what we want produce occasional material success, anxiety, stress, pain, frustration, emptiness, insecurity, and unhappiness while choices made to express unconditional love produce all types of success, peace, tranquility, confidence, satisfaction, fulfillment, happiness, and joy.

reducing entropy p. 355 These are a few of the things that will make some future computers more profitable to themselves and thus better able to accomplish their external task-oriented goals as well as better able to implement their internal (personal) goal of reducing entropy (becoming better organized as well as more effective and efficient).

humility p. 367 To complete the picture of ego, as defined above, you must be aware of its opposites: humility and compassion. Humility allows for confidence, certainty, self-assuredness, purpose, and passion while carrying an underlying implication of an awareness and recognition of limitations. The limitations of which humility is aware can originate inside or outside the individual (a wholly artificial distinction, but one that will aid the clarity of the explanation).

balance p. 374 This is not a control issue; control does not create balance, but only the appearance of balance. A balanced individual is a conscious part of the unified larger reality, a productive citizen of the larger consciousness ecosystem, and is aware of being interconnected to everything. External balance (being in balance with everything external to the individual) is an immediate and automatic consequence of internal balance. Internal balance precedes and enables external balance - it does not work the other way around. Trying hard to appear as if you are balanced does little to produce real balance - truth does not flow from fantasy. The Big Picture can not be derived from the little picture.

love p. 374 When you are animated by love, you are not driven by fear, ego, desire, or need. There is no forcing function driving your choices. Love is directed outward. With love, you are at peace, solid, still, fearless, and centered.

control p. 375 Control, driven by desire and need, is a desperate and self-limiting attempt by the disenfranchised effete to appear powerful. Control is, and always has been, a poor substitute for love.

God, god p. 379 Because some will be forced by habit to project delusion into the mind of AUM, let's look at the historical record. Historical, mythical and theological reports of Greek, Jewish, Roman, Christian, and Muslim gods being egotistical (vengeful, jealous, angry, demanding, pouty, upset, selfimportant, and violent - all traits of a large dysfunctional ego) are most likely an artifact of God being described by men, in the image of men, to satisfy the needs and purposes of men. In other words, the common description (among many of the world's popular religions) of an egotistical (delusional) god is most likely the result of men projecting their own egotism upon their concept of god (god made in the image of man) and offers no credible evidence (guilty by vague association) against the mental and spiritual health of AUM.

uncertainty p. 385 Outside (external to PMR) meddling, applied to the evolutionary process taking place within the PMR learning lab, adds uncertainty to the process and usually produces unnatural results that cannot be maintained without further meddling.

experience packet p. 395 What we do with the opportunity to evolve our consciousness is entirely up to us. It is our free will, our self-interaction, and our interaction with others that creates the possibility of learning, which in turn creates our potential for growth. Because of our relatively high entropy, we are slow learners; consequently, our cycles of learning and growth are designed to accumulate results over multiple experience packets.

growth potential? Potential for growth? p. 395 What we do with the opportunity to evolve our consciousness is entirely up to us. It is our free will, our self-interaction, and our interaction with others that creates the possibility of learning, which in turn creates our potential for growth. Because of our relatively high entropy, we are slow learners; consequently, our cycles of learning and growth are designed to accumulate results over multiple experience packets.

death p. 399 This is how the fundamental-consciousnessenergy- ecosystem evolves, lowers its entropy, and avoids stagnation, regression (increasing entropy), and dissolution (death).

evolutionary success p. 407 Eating that metaphorical apple from the tree of knowledge carried with it the potential for expanded evolutionary success or failure. Self-awareness and the knowledge that comes with it was the beginning of AUM's Great Experiment and our Great Struggle - the beginning of our employment as an entropy transfer media within the consciousness cycle - employed as lab rats, high entropy to low entropy consciousness transmuting bacteria, expressions of art, participants in scientific enquiry, stand-up comedians, or all of the above.

uncertainty p. 413 the uncertainty (degree of randomness)
Free will p. 415 Free will - the ability to make choices in order to effect self-modification in the pursuit of evolutionary profitability - is part of the definition of consciousness itself. Free will is not an outside condition that must be applied to consciousness, it is fundamental to the existence of consciousness. Free will is a necessary attribute of successfully evolving consciousness. Without free will, a profitable consciousness system is impossible.

evolutionary success p. 424 The rules of the game of evolutionary success define it into existence and maintain its integrity.

digital simulations p. 424 With respect to big PMR-based digital simulations (war games or meteorological modeling, for example), the people who build and use these simulations do not know how the results are going to turn out; if they did, there would be no need to develop or run the computer models.

duality p. 426 The illusion of determinism is the illusion that this rule-set represents all reality and not merely the local calculation space, reality, or dimension of existence we call PMR.

PUP p. 429 The psi uncertainty principle is the mechanism for maintaining that particular growth-optimizing balance.

future p. 443 The future is not a done deal.

PUP p. 444 However, we will see below that the psi uncertainty principle requires that problems that are physically verified (known malignant tumor) must have either a physically verifiable physical solution or a physically unverifiable nonphysical solution.

uncertainty p. 449 The entanglement (interaction) of uncertainty with the measurement of psi effects leads to what I descriptively call the psi uncertainty principle - where the uncertainty surrounding an event allows the event a larger selection of probable outcomes that may be more easily altered by the application of a focused (low noise - small ego) mind with a clear intent.

little picture science p. 483 Along the way, we will demonstrate that PMR physics (our hard-headed little picture science)

bootstrapping p. 495 If done internally, this bootstrapping (self-elevating, self-teaching, or self-improving) process may be referred to as artificial intelligence (AI), a form of self-modification (learning) based on data collected from previous experience.

artificial intelligence p. 495 If done internally, this bootstrapping (self-elevating, self-teaching, or self-improving) process may be referred to as artificial intelligence (AI), a form of self-modification (learning) based on data collected from previous experience.

AI Guy p. 495
evolutionary profitability p. 526 Logically, AUM could achieve the greatest rate of evolutionary profitability by running many experiments in parallel. Multiple simultaneous experiments would most quickly and effectively evolve the constraints (player definition, processing power, memory, data collection, and purpose as reflected by the conditionals within each competing algorithmic rule-set) leading to the highest evolutionary rates of return and greatest overall profits.

physical body p. 533 A physical computer, like your physical body, will never be conscious: it supports consciousness and is a container of consciousness within the PMR space-time reality dimension.

AI Guy p. 534 AI Guy is our creation, a derivative of our consciousness and as such will eventually evolve into a life-form of various types and subspecies, all derivative of, and dependent upon, the physical and nonphysical sources of its being as are we.

immortal p. 534 We, as individuated consciousness, are truly immortal unless the bits that represent us become disorganized beyond repair, irredeemably negative, or are deleted from memory.

telepathy p. 545 Information transfer by discrete thought packets can, in one of its forms, be called telepathy.

telepathy p. 546 Think of telepathy as adding data to (organizing bits within) someone else's calculation space.

Altered State p. 55 There were those things that were non-measurable yet functionally operational (including my meditation state, which is properly defined as an altered state of consciousness) that fell into the category of subjective experience with objective results.

mystic? paranormal? p. 551 As we pointed out in Section 2 (Chapter 20, Book 1), the words "mystic" and "paranormal" have meaning only in relation to the normal level of ignorance within PMR.
thought-forms p. 558 NPMRN continues to flourish and evolve an immense selection of lifeforms outside the various space-time PMRk. The beings of NPMRN might be thought of (by the residents of PMR) as bounded, discrete thought forms.

lifeforms p. 558 NPMRN continues to flourish and evolve an immense selection of lifeforms outside the various space-time PMRk. The beings of NPMRN might be thought of (by the residents of PMR) as bounded, discrete thought forms.

reality wide web p. 559 Whereas our cute little space-time bodies are genetically determined, cast in mass and restrained to contiguous 3D motion, their bodies are energetically and functionally determined, cast into habituated forms, and can travel as information packets on the Reality Wide Web (RWW) network (if they know how).

daydreams p. 56 Were daydreams (self-directed imagination or purposeful visual imagery) functional? Of course! Why had I not noticed that before? People have been preparing themselves mentally for all sorts of things since the beginning of time.

immortal p. 562 All beings were, like AUM and all consciousness, more or less immortal. Digital beings, if not deleted or damaged, last as long as the computer (AUM). From your point of view, that is immortal with a capital "I". Yes, my friend, you as an individuated consciousness are essentially immortal - unless you screw up and get zapped by the Big Cheese or mugged by some tough guy or mean-spirited anti- rat.

mortality p. 562 The apparent mortality of your virtual physical body is simply a device to facilitate your learning; local mortality is irrelevant to the apparently endless continuation of your digital awareness.

logical progression(s) p. 564 The point is: We started with AUO - plain dim consciousness (digital potential energy) and ended up with our beloved PMR by following a reasonable and logical progression that was defined by the interaction of our two basic assumptions.

consciousness p. 570 Back in the real world of fundamental existence, consciousness is the one universal reality.

experience packet p. 581

uncertainty p. 588 In these well known and often repeated experiments, the statistical nature of the data resides in the future as a probability distribution that contains some uncertainty.

future p. 588 In these well known and often repeated experiments, the statistical nature of the data resides in the future as a probability distribution that contains some uncertainty.

law of attraction p. 589 Thus follows an explanation for "backwards causality", the biasing of random events, unnatural or consistent luck, the placebo effect, mental healing, the power of positive thinking, the power of prayer, the so-called "law of attraction" and many other mind-matter interactions.

backwards causality p. 589 Thus follows an explanation for "backwards causality", the biasing of random events, unnatural or consistent luck, the placebo effect, mental healing, the power of positive thinking, the power of prayer, the so-called "law of attraction" and many other mind-matter interactions.

prayer p. 589 Thus follows an explanation for "backwards causality", the biasing of random events, unnatural or consistent luck, the placebo effect, mental healing, the power of positive thinking, the power of prayer, the so-called "law of attraction" and many other mind-matter interactions.

reality wide web p. 655 All consciousness in NPMRN is "netted." It is as though each entity in NPMRN has a unique URL (Uniform Resource Locator or web address) in a gigantic, but finite, Reality Wide Web (RWW).

experience p. 655 Experience, carefully filtered by a scientific method (repeatable evidential data collection) that sorts external signal from internal noise, leads to the knowledge that forms the basis for a larger set of productive and meaningful possible intents.

intuition p. 656 People in PMR who are unaware (or mostly unaware) within NPMR, can use and experience this net if they are connected strongly enough (large enough signal-to-noise) and with enough clear intent (interest) to produce a crosstalk or bleedthrough into their consciousness (typically perceived as intuition or precognitive dreams).

precognition p. 656 People in PMR who are unaware (or mostly unaware) within NPMR, can use and experience this net if they are connected strongly enough (large enough signal-to-noise) and with enough clear intent (interest) to produce a crosstalk or bleedthrough into their consciousness (typically perceived as intuition or precognitive dreams).

telepathy p. 656 Individual communications between sentient entities are telepathic. Additionally, within a given PMR, communication using sensory data (such as sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste) typically functions in parallel with telepathy to some degree.

remote viewing p. 66 "What exactly is remote viewing?" I asked. "Obtaining information paranormally by going somewhere in the outof- body state to collect the target information - without taking your body along, as it were."

space-time p. 662 He did not grasp the digital nature of reality - that space and time are quantized - and that space-time itself was only a local phenomenon, a virtual little picture reality dependent upon a more fundamental digital energy field called consciousness.

time p. 665 Awareness cannot grow, progress, learn, or evolve past a very rudimentary level without the organizing influence of time.

AUM p. 667 We use the terms AUM, EBC, and TBC to express differing levels of digital functionality, however, at the root, they are not separate parts. Imagine a single evolving digital system serving multiple functions simultaneously.

EBC p. 667 We use the terms AUM, EBC, and TBC to express differing levels of digital functionality, however, at the root, they are not separate parts. Imagine a single evolving digital system serving multiple functions simultaneously.
TBC p. 667 We use the terms AUM, EBC, and TBC to express differing levels of digital functionality, however, at the root, they are not separate parts. Imagine a single evolving digital system serving multiple functions simultaneously.

reality state vector p. 674 I have used the term reality state vector ("reality state," or simply "state" for short) to mean the total description or specification of the state of existing choices, things, and energy that defines OS at the end of a DELTA-t. Later I will define more precisely what a reality state vector is (Topic 9 below) and describe the process that generates it (Chapters 8 through 10 of this book), but first there are a few more basic concepts to be introduced.

uncertainty p. 696 Consider the natural uncertainty and small random components modeled within the digital consciousness system as the lubricant that helps make the system work.

energy p. 727 Energy (the ability to rearrange bits and affect organization, and thus content, within a system).

Alpha Centauri p. 727 Alpha Centauri (a star 4.4 light-years away from the earth)

teleportation p. 728 Teleportation is only a matter of switching your consciousness to a different energy packet exchange interface (see Chapter 32, Book 2)

Nonphysical? Visualization? Meditation State? p. 77 Meanwhile, while Dennis and I were working in and on the lab, Bob was leading us and teaching us to experience and explore the nonphysical. He would first lead us into a deep relaxation state, then using visualization we would begin to focus our thoughts, center our attention - let go of our bodies and the environment. These exercises produced various states of consciousness that were similar to the meditation state I had learned to achieve with TM.

little picture science p. 786 Physicists still have a lot to learn about the space-time rule-set that defines our little picture virtual physical reality. Because that rule-set defines a digital virtual simulation within a larger digital reality, little TOEs may need to embrace some of the digital magic we have found so entertaining at the movies and so useful on our desktops. Even so, little picture science and applied mathematics (little picture logic) can never lead directly to a Big TOE.

Even so, little picture science and applied mathematics (little picture logic) can never lead directly to a Big TOE.

human genetic engineering p. 806 "The release of atomic energy has not created a new problem. It has merely made more urgent the necessity of solving an existing one."  ALBERT EINSTEIN Little did he know that mankind would devise several additional ways to destroy life on our planet within a few decades. Given this destructive capacity, future human genetic engineering, psychotropic pharmaceuticals, and the coming Information Age, it has never been more important for mankind to understand the Big Picture before it prematurely terminates this portion of The Great Experiment in Consciousness.

intent p. 92 Conscious intent is everything - space and time are not fundamental.

Dang, it's may be "just data" but that's a lot. I've given out all my soft under one cover MBTs, I'll get more as I want to get one to my daughter's ex boyfriend. The ones you haven't found reference for yet make my heart beat a little faster. You are also, in fact a ROCK STAR, and if I know you you offered, but that's in a past thread. ;)
Love
Bette

You can probably use the Google Books version until you buy more softcover trilogies.

I didn't do a good job copying and pasting, I am cleaning it up bit by bit, I am sorry about that.

This may be off topic but is there a way to highlight sentences etc on the Google version of MBT? I bought the trilogy in hardback and I just don't have the heart to break out the highlighter when I have those ahha! moments while reading. I may just end up buying another trilogy in paperback for scribbling in.

Lynda, you have done a lot of work here and this is very helpful. I plan on bookmarking this page and using this. Good job.

Thank you very much. I hope it is helpful.

I am not aware of any way to highlight the Google Books version except when performing a keyword search.

Tom should sell an electronic version, I read somewhere that he was looking into his options, but I don't know how those work. Can you highlight a book on Kindle?

Great piece of work.

Wonder if it could be ported to some sort of evergreen wiki so that terms can be added and entries modified (subject to oversight)

yeah, paperback and use highlighter/underlining, dog-ear key pages or use stickies, make notes or summary diagrams in margin.

or just decide to destroy the hardcopy with use.

What do you need it in? HTML? PDF? Word? Excel? Let me know and I'll send it to you.

Thank you Edge but I clicked to add an Index page to hopefully harvest some Index Suggestions and got told:
