I stumbled upon this guy on YouTube, Rob Cutter, who seems like he may have had (and is perhaps still having) experiences/contact with the LCS. The YT video below, entitled "Unity Consciousness," is part one of a four part series that I initially encountered. It is along the lines of the increasingly common theme that consciousness is fundamental, we’re all one, and that most religions possess the same kernel of truth within them, which is: the purpose of our existence is to learn how to love one another. I found this video series to be quite beautiful and moving, and it has a number of concepts in common with MBT (but it is not essential to the question I will be getting to).
As I continued watching Rob’s material, I eventually came to a two part video series that sort of weirded me out, entitled "Dark Masters & Reincarnation." The video presents a similar description to one element within MBT, but with a major twist. If I am interpreting Tom’s model correctly, Rob’s model is similar to Tom’s in that they both indicate that, within our overall consciousness system, our earthly selves (FWAUs), which are “sent” here to experience PMR, are only a small piece of our more expansive higher selves (IUsOC), which remain in NPMR.
Rob goes on to say, however, that we are essentially being deceived in this relationship because our higher selves are not really what we think they are. He says they are only representing themselves as our higher selves, when in fact they are “using us” to incarnate here in PMR to live these challenging lives for them - so they don’t have to go through the struggle of actual PMR existences, yet can still gain the benefit from them. Moreover, he says that after we are finished reincarnating, we are then tricked again into allowing ourselves to be fully absorbed into our (fraudulent) higher selves so they can co-opt our PMR knowledge, and that during this process we will lose our individual identities altogether. He even says that these “fraudulent higher selves” (what he calls “fifth-dimensional beings”) have discovered that they are also being deceived in a similar fashion by an even higher level of beings. He says they used to call these higher beings Elders, but now refer to them as Dark Masters because of this dishonesty.
This next video is an NDE experience from a man named Jim, who talks about going through the process of merging with "the light" in NPMR in much the same manner that Rob Cutter describes it in his videos. So although Jim maintains complete control during the entire experience of being drawn into the light by its intense love, he does have the feeling of losing his self-identity as he goes in deeper, but then he regains it more strongly as he backs away. Jim repeats this process over and over again as he tries to discover how far he can move into the light without losing his self-identity completely.
Now here’s the more typical sort of NDE experience by a man named Dave, who didn’t seem to have any fear at all about losing his self-identity while merging with the light. Unlike Jim, Dave identifies the light as being a larger aspect of himself (which doesn't seem to be all that common in NDEs.) His experience seems like a simple, joyous reconnecting with his higher self while temporarily in NPMR (before he had to go back into his body), and he maintained his sense of identity throughout the whole experience (although less intensely while he was fully merged with the light).
Rob’s two part video, “Dark Masters & Reincarnation,” contains the only description of “NPMR mergings” between entities I’ve come across that portrays an element of deceit in the process. So my question is this: Since I’ve only read a small part of MBT so far, does Tom talk anywhere about entities being absorbed by other entities in this dishonest fashion? Or is the merging of entities always a loving, straight-forward process, more like Dave (and so many others) describes in the second NDE video? Does Tom ever say anything about the possibility that some entities within the LCS may not be on the up and up? (And if we’re all one, how could any of these beings, who are (supposedly) fraudulently representing themselves as our higher selves, not somehow be a part of us anyway?)
I recall reading that many Buddhist sects teach that the goal of reincarnation on earth is to eventually reach a high enough level of spiritual enlightenment whereby we can end the karmic cycle of birth and death (which is seen as suffering). And then as a reward we get to merge back into the universe, which is all part of a natural and loving process.
If anyone feels like having a look at these videos and commenting on their content - who is more knowledgeable about MBT than I am - I would be very much interested in your take on things. Also, are there any specific sections in MBT that focus on this issue of entities merging in NPMR? Thanks for listening. Cheers.
