Let me first make a correction to what you are saying. I never said the following which would disagree with Tom, which I make every effort possible to keep congruent with what Tom says. There is an underlying basic misunderstanding on your part involved.
If we do not have consciousness after our avatar ceases to exist as Ted suggests (i.e. physical death) how does this immediately after death process still work that Tom has talked about previously in other interviews?
All the various VR consciousness streams that our IUOC engages in consists of the passage of messages over the RWW. The same goes with the One Consciousness of AUM. It's all done by the messaging over the RWW through appropriate data streams. This is what I have always said.
You always, as an IUOC, participate in one or more such data streams that make up your participation in the Union of all IUOCs which is, makes up, AUM. This is the Jewels of Consciousness of Indra's Net reflecting each other in their facets. Those reflections are those messages. Think computers on the Internet. Think neurons in the brain of AUM interconnected by axons and dendrites that are these same messages. We as IUOCs are the building blocks for anything which AUM chooses to accomplish. All it takes to do something is to select an appropriate group of IUOCs, a sub group of the Union of all IUOCs that makes up AUM, and start the right stream of data connecting them and organizing and directing them to create the messages that represent that functioning as a data stream. You could say that a hierarchy of command and control is created, a work force delegated and then things begin to happen. No one has to design and purchase computers and put them in a data center and connect them to the Internet with proper programs, power and cooling systems. We (the IUOCs) are the computers, already programmed with the general purpose algorithms of logic and pattern matching that we need, and the specific program to be followed is in the messaging going out over the RWW.
Your existence, as an IUOC experiencing itself as an avatar or FWAU in a VR, arises from and is based upon that same messaging. Different messages, coded in some manner to establish what that message represents, make for different experiences. Messages related to AUM or to some sub set of AUM's activities and purposes, such as an instance of TBC, are what makes that function to occur. For these types of functioning, there need not be any element of things to be conscious of in that messaging. In fact, it is better without, as there would be then a risk of AUM's thinking and functioning being 'skewed' by the thinking, and ego, that an avatar in a VR tends to develop. What you are conscious of in a VR comes to you in the messaging that creates that VR as prepared by TBC. But TBC is just a collection of IUOCs selected by AUM to function as TBC as a subset of AUM. Probably based on their contiguity to minimize overhead for communication over the RWW. It would make for a much slower than necessary functioning in a VR made up of randomly scattered IUOCs throughout the LCS. That would make no sense given the apparent propensity of AUM to do things efficiently. As Tom says, AUM and the LCS are real systems and thus they are subject to reduced performance if things are done inefficiently. If AUM is engaged in a process of upgrading the QOC of ourselves as IUOCs and thus of its own QOC, effectively increasing it's own efficiency, it certainly would not fail to do things efficiently in its other operations.
So as avatars in a VR, we are IUOCs connected to our past history in that VR and also to our incoming data stream, created specifically and especially for us as that IUOC/avatar. When we die in a PMR type VR where we are 'mortal' and physical, we are not just like a power tool with the cord unplugged and put away in the tool box. We are conscious, have been experiencing our consciousness of that VR and an abrupt ending can create problems. Because we are not just that avatar in that PMR VR, we are also and equally, an avatar in an NPMR VR where we have a continuous existence and are not mortal. Our NPMR continuous avatar is how and where our cumulative growth is expressed as our QOC and entropy level as an IUOC. But our continuous history there in NPMR is not complete in itself but augmented by inclusions from our IUOCs intermittent experience and development in PMR. That's the purpose of a PMR as the cutting edge of such development as entropy reduction. But just adding on our PMR experience to our NPMR experience, just making a raw insertion, would be disruptive. Everything would be cluttered together and one life interfering with the understanding of every other life. Imagine sitting at a business conference table negotiating with associates and being annoyed at the person across the table from you who wants to do it differently than you have planned. How helpful would it be if Ug, the cave man from millennia ago in your memory but with a very domineering personality, takes over and bashes your opponent over the head to win your point. Not productive today.
So there is a process to take beginners who have just transitioned and minimize or prevent trauma in the transitioning process. This process varies with the degree of experience of the IUOC and is matched to development level. So instead of just unplugging an experience steam from the PMR VR, it is transitioned to minimize upset. When ready, your avatar developed in PMR is integrated into your continuing NPMR avatar. Not the details of English speaking or math skills as such or PMR rule set details. What is universally useful to your continuing development. Personality type skills can be brought in if new and of value. Your PMR experience has after all been undergone for the purpose of enhancing your QOC as an IUOC and also as an NPMR continuous avatar. So there was never any conflict between what I said and what Tom has to say.
Perhaps this explanation is more understandable than in the past or perhaps not. I agree that it would be desirable to have a video/graphical presentation to allow for better understanding for those who understand better in this way, and that is a large percentage of the population.

I wrote up a list of projects that I wanted to accomplish and if you look at 5 on the list, you will see just such a project outlined. Since then my computer system has been rebuilt once and now needs it again. I have also had a pacemaker installed and am now working my way through understanding a lifetime of Migraine Equivalent experience and getting it under control as it gets worse with age, for me anyway. I had a group interested and working towards project 4, but they have all had changes in their lives which took them away from the project. We did select a game engine and which would also be invaluable, I believe, for the modeling project. In addition, I have spent many years doing CAD, computer aided design work, in engineering as well as some graphical work so I have the needed skills to do this project as well as the understanding to do it in agreement with Tom's model as he teaches it. As I am retired, I have full time to devote to this and my other projects, other that as taken up by ordinary living problems. I don't really need someone to do aspects of this for me and there are aspects of development which are continuing that will expand this description and the Model. Tom has been made aware of these things and will have his input when he deems appropriate. But Tom is very busy also with his own aspects of this project so leaves to me what I can do for him. Be assured that when I need help, I will ask for it.
