Bette,

I was thinking along the lines of whatever happens is, ultimately, natural by definition.

Pointing out the notion that what is known is natural and what is unknown is unnatural. It's a personal reality bias.

Loss of motivation can be the uptake of expectation. Browse this forum and look for the undercurrents of expectation: They are everywhere. You will also see doubt and uncertainty which are almost always based on expectations around what should be happening, what they would like to experience, or whe...

I agree with specialis_sapientia's analysis.

It is a very bottom-up description of the theory and so appears overly complex and of minimal usefulness. It is the meta (top-down) nature of Tom's theory that makes it particularly compelling.

In a "real" universe as most people believe in, there is no "computer behind the scenes". A simulated/fake would mean "something" (some intelligence, computer) simulates it. I was thinking of this answer as I read Montana's question, but if true, it implies something i...

That sounds like progress to me, Bette. Another way of looking at it is that our previous lives were mostly empty affairs full of fear, needs, ego, and such. As we strip those things away, we begin to find that our lives were really just empty, but with full awareness, courage, and our intent, we fi...

Bette, Is that so? You feel more motivated? They say part of becoming enlightened is that you drop all of the worthless habits, mindsets, and concerns that are holding you back and that, as a consequence, your life will be filled with worthwhile things because you will no longer have time for all th...

Ben,

I have not felt a loss of motivation: In fact, I feel more motivated as time goes on.

However, I'm not enlightened.

Lynda, Claudio's covered the search question pretty well. Using Google's site search will really help you. Also, if you are getting false-positives, use "-" before a word to remove results containting that word. Also, become familar with the error message they might receive and how players...

Ted, That's great news - as an aside, I sort of naturaly began to focus on uncollapsing one morning when I was working on your health problems and it really stuck with me for a few days because I had never considered going at it from that angle before. I'm hoping that you might weigh in a bit on the...

Justin, Of course, the 'should' is always fundamentally more important than the 'can', but that doesn't mean we don't like the 'cans'. 'Shoulds' always end up being answered with "It depends", while 'cans' are a bit more binary, but since this idea bumps up against several key MBT ideas, i...

Ted mentioned something about some of his physical ailment's wavefunctions being long ago collapsed: It got me to wondering about whether the damage could be undone. There was a post about this a while back, regarding experiments in physics: http://www.my-big-toe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5...

So far, from what we've been covering, it seems that clear intent is an answer to the "blind state" situation. Much more detail than that is unavailable since any answer we give are PMR metaphors for a non-PMR issue, though I like Jeff's and DrTechnical's ideas, which though still in metap...

Jeff, It seems like our experiences are very similar, then. I am more unhinged by numbers and text, though I have also been overly involved in unmasking, as you mentioned. I keep thinking "unimportant details": Shifting towards what's in the stream, rather than what the stream means is an ...

This topic seems to come up occassionally and since it is pretty much a direct Q&A with Tom, it may be helpful for those with questions or problems with free will.
