First thank you sincerely and genuinely for your contributions. Your theory and the way you’ve presented it has been very meaningful to me and those I know. I appreciate your work in a real way.
I recognize I am a consciousness in need of development, I desire to be refined toward Love. To that end you made several statements in your Spain presentation about which I’d like to offer questions for consideration and comment:
: “The LCS isn't really interested in your headache...”
(ref 20:50 of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26vPagD6DmM
: It seems deeply intuitively true to me that the LCS loves each of us even as individual FWAU’s and therefore the content of our experience is consciously important to it. That is, because it is truly loving and empathic, it “cares” that we have a headache (in its own largely unfathomable but ultimately loving way). Do you concur, and if not, why?
: [paraphrase] It isn’t really Aunt Betsy waiting for you on the other side.
(ref 1:10 of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ4QpAlmNws
: Isn’t it possible that the LCS could permit Aunt Betsy’s IUOC to generate free-will Betsy for that experience? That is, couldn’t Aunt Besty be both at your deathbed and a “burly guy on the dock” in her next life simultaneously? And since the LCS is love if it “cares” about our experience, isn’t it conceivable that it would be more fulfilling and developmentally advantageous for both you and Aunt Betsy to be consciously aware at that experience of your transition?
: [paraphrase] The purpose of reality is to lower the entropy of all IUOCs. Lower entropy permits greater total potential.
: To what ultimate end? Once X number of conscious beings have lowered their entropy to a very low state, then what? (I recognize there may never be an end- you may just get more and more lower and lower entropy beings- but the question still stands.) It seems to me that increasing the potential of the whole system by developing all the IUOCs within it is the goal but perhaps not the end in itself. If true, what is the ultimate purpose? I personally intuit that the experience
(of the individual IUOCs, being chunks of the LCS) itself
has meaning or what I’d call “inherent value” to the LCS, so the great journey of lowering entropy isn’t just about the end goal, but generating meaning
in the process itself. Perhaps this meaning is something we cannot fathom (it may be in the area beyond what we can consider with brains), but after much searching I seem to sense it. Would you offer a comment to this? What is the ultimate end?
for your time and efforts, and thank you for making the choice to share your wisdom with individuals like myself!
Note : While I directed this message to Tom, I am equally interested in receiving input from anyone else on the board as well, please! Thank you for taking the time!
