I have heard Tom speak many times on the topic of switching between data streams. This was typically in reference to different states (NDE, OOB, alternate realities, etc.) that were in fact different streams of data to which we were focused or tuned in to rather than actual locations.

I am curious what Tom (or anyone else) has to say on the manner in which we recognize these different streams of data and also the mechanism by which one "tunes" into that stream.

Thank you!

Tom

I am curious what Tom (or anyone else) has to say on the manner in which we recognize these different streams of data

dream, OOBE, NDE are generally single player "games" rendered by the system. the difference is that "lucid dreaming" and OOBE as opposed to dreaming is that you are aware you are not in the earth simulation.


and also the mechanism by which one "tunes" into that stream.

there are two ways this can happen. the system can on its own stop sending you the earth avatar data stream (unlikely) and send you another one. or you can learn on your own to stop focusing on the earth data stream until the point that you can switch on your own and go "out of body"

similar to when you read a book you might stop focusing on traffic noise outside or something, meditation allows us to stop focusing on the entire avatar data stream. then you can try to learn to "float in the void" as a consciousness and use your intent to switch data streams and "travel"

take the long view. avoid caffeine, sugary drinks and food. and obviously other additive substances. create small goals. have a more easily achievable goal; meditate with your eyes closed for 5 minutes with no thoughts or images coming into mind without focusing on anything but your breath. in time you will not need to use the breath as "training wheels"

unfortunately most of us have jobs and responsibilities and cannot spend every day all day in meditation working on our abilities. try meditating while falling asleep. while snoozing in on the weekend day off. try mindfulness and not thinking while washing the dishes or taking a walk. set aside 30 minutes to just sit and try to mediate with eyes closed.

its generally not easy for most people. keep at it and make is a life long journey.

Well, you are very familiar with your waking data stream. And you can recognize a dream data stream. Dream data streams can feel very different than the daytime one. The constraints aren't the same and they are often disjointed. OBEs for me have often been more like the waking data stream except that the constraints are much less strict. The lucid dream experience gives you more of a waking decision space in a dream setting. I've never been good at remote viewing so maybe someone else can describe that.

There are lots of ways to be able to change data streams at will. If you are serious enough try changing your diet. No sugar, alcohol, meat, or additives in your food. Or try some version of this. It takes between 3-6 months to see a difference in your consciousness.

Become a proficient meditator. Shut off your internal dialog and be able to float in point consciousness, (the void,) for some time. That becomes your jump off point to talk to other entities, heal, or have other experiences. At this point you need to be fearless because you will get some fear tests. Someone will grab you, or you will meet a scary monster. The idea is if you have a lot of fear you shouldn't be exploring NPMR. Because your fear will predispose you to scary experiences.

The other way is wake-back-to-bed. Google it for directions.

According to MBT, we (as avatars) are actors in this linear data stream creation. This PMR is a experiential sensory data stream. Our focus is outward in this objective reality. It is imagery presented to the IUOC. The IUOC's natural state is "point consciousness". It is the "true" out of body condition. Point consciousness is our theta state:

You can measure brainwaves by electroencephalogram or EEG but from a technical point of view, a theta state of mind measures the frequency between 4 to 7 Hz. In simple terms, this is the state that typically exists between wakefulness and sleep especially when lying in bed.

In order to reach that state, we must direct our focus inward through meditation, hypnosis, imagination, etc. When we reach the theta state, we are the IUOC. We can then phase into other NPMR or PMR data streams. There are three basic stages to consider: pre awakening, awakening and post awakening. In pre awakening some of us realize that there is more to this then "meets the eye". In the awakening stage, for some of us, an "experience" has triggered "shock and awe". Likewise, post awakening causes us to recognize that consciousness is interconnected. In this stage, less emphasis is placed on phasing into alternate data streams because we recognize and accept that we are interconnected, we are consciousness. My 2 cents.

Thank you all for the responses. I live a relatively healthy lifestyle with the exception of drinking quite a lot of coffee. I hear the message on that loud and clear. Both Robert Monroe and Tom speak of the necessity of relegating caffeine to the sidelines. It's time for that if I want to evolve a bit further.

Now it's on to some more experimentation!

Tom
