the big truth descriptions match the big disconnect process of a forum/human communication.
Tom had to use metaphors for everything. I think things are more connected than we can realize. We are to used to partitioning everything into separate things.
Little picture perspective is as valuable as the biggest LCS perspective
Only seeing a little picture can be crippling, because it is easier for belief and fear to take root. Having a bigger picture of anything can be very beneficial. It depends upon what you do with it.
I smile every time I hear Tom talk about people who travel get a bigger picture of the world. And in some cases that is the truth. But I used to work for a very rich couple. They had traveled all over the world. But they had some of the most narrow views I had ever experienced. So, it truly depends upon what you do with the information, and experiences, you get.
One thing I have learned is to never trust myself when it comes to belief, after all these years studying Toms theory can you all say the same?
Belief is a tricky thing. You have to ask yourself all the time, does the reality you are experiencing back up the things you believe?
if i can be a mother or father in PMR but you cant have one outside, i guess PMR is the only place to have heart and soul, outside is just gears and cogs?
Look at this from a bigger picture. Your IUOC has had thousands of lives with spouses, children, relatives, and friends. But what is left from all those experiences is Quality of Consciousness. High QoC creates heart and soul in whatever VR it participates in. The rest is just the means to the end. There are no doubt many PMRs that do not even have a concept of a mother or father. But they know what Love is, and what ego and fear are.
