Ted, thank you. I have not been straining or overly concerned, about this aspect, just very curious. I think, I perceive , the evolution of our consciousness, is the causality of how our avatar deals with the uncertainties, that come our way, via not so great choices, or some randomness- which could be a test and tool, to allow us a chance to see what decisions or solutions we implement, in a given random event, that has uncertain qualities, or is unfamiliar to our avatar's experience, in this data stream , therefore, we are having to rely on on a gut feeling [ intuition or a message from beyond this data stream/VR], for a sense of guidance.
When it is a familiar, event, or interaction, which we have some familiar reference point, to bring to mind, we can just about predict, the outcome, or result, per the selection of our decisions/choices that we make, in the event or occurrence. Therein , leaving not much room for advancing with new experiential data, that will require "gracefulness" to deal with the uncertainty, rather than try to manipulate the circumstances, from a fear or ego based motive. to appease the ego side of our avatar's thought process.
Then, I suppose, with maturity, we will know when to "stand up", or, "just deal with it", as it comes, and to do these successfully, can only and truly, be learned from experiencing and interaction. "Sucesss, comes thru failures, and failures come thru experience", and old Oriental proverb.
