Hi i was just wondering whether IUOC's that choose to lower their entropy via the negative (power/force/control) path and manage to do so successfully are able to maintain that level of reduced entropy (and the increased power/ability that may go with it) into their next experience packet. Or would the fact that they have missed the point and led a self serving existence mean that they are set straight and given another opportunity to grow in the correct way that is most profitable to the system as a whole (i.e love)? If this were the case would they be stripped of any increased psychic power that may have been previously gained/experienced?
Most likely, they would be able to maintain the same level of entropy, though in the long term it's a very unstable thing. A being can reduce its entropy by learning to focus its thoughts and intent, and instead of eliminating fear and ego, it can attempt to isolate it. However, there are limits to this and it is a path towards self-destruction. I don't know what happens with this category of people in the transition period, but I guess it's very different, as in case by case basis.
I also wondered if the existence and balance of good and evil as part of our free will experience within OS was exclusively necessary for our growth as part of the one consciousness at our beginners level within OS, or whether that balance (ying/yang) is a feature throughout the whole system including all the other realms and those outside of OS aswel.
It exists because consciousness requires free will. Free will includes the choice to do both good and bad. Negativity and positivity exists in various degrees throughout the countless of reality frames. Balance (and ying-yang) might be the wrong word, it gives the impression that some negativity is necessary for a "healthy system", it's not. Only the possibility of negativity is necessary.
As a positive person i try and maintain a healthy and uplifting outlook but sometimes feel that due to the undeniable existence of evil aswel as the good in the world i am sometimes polluted with mental images and unpleasant thoughts that are not in line with my own intent or character. I act accordingly as though i am stumbling across some data in the sea of information that is not of any use to me and attempt to focus on something more fittting and desirable. It is not always an easy task however. I see this possibility for evil as a necessity in order for us to achieve optimum growth through choice but wondering if it will always be a feature of evolutionary growth experience at every level of quality development.
Yes, there is much "pollution".. In general; much is unintended noise and some is intended manipulation. Deal with it with the best of your ability, that's the best we can do. To your last question, there are or at least should be levels of development where the participation to negativity is non-existent, but this is irrelevant to us, here in the present moment where we have to deal with things as they are.
