I want to apologize for my last comment. I didn't explained myself correctly.
Of course there is a direct relationship between the phase and the physic world. WHAT I MEAN is that you can't expect to find the same world structure in both worlds, so performing the experiment about hiding a number inside a box is pointless.
Sure! Absolutely! There is no guarantee that you will see the actual number. Two possible reasons: Reality is not that simple or it doesn't work that way if one indeed travels extra-dimensionally in the Phase state...OR...it is all illusions concocted by the brain and thus, if the brain does know what the number is, then all it is doing is "wild guessing" by using the subconscious.
I know that there is people who had successfully performed the above experiment, but I have a different hypothesis.
They didn't extracted the information from the physical world. May be everybody is connected in the phase, and the number they saw in the phase, wasn't a projection of the physical world, but a projection of the memories of the person who wrote the numbers, which are non-physical, like everything in the phase.
I suspect this is true too. In fact, I've had my fair share of seemingly telepathic Phase experiences. I think you will like this guy:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Sheldrake
On the other hand, which resonates more with the Thomas Campbell view (and I think both views could go together), I devised this analogy and posted it on Pulse but here it is:"Recently, I've been thinking about the physical realm like a PowerPoint presentation. This kind of presentation needs to look professional or acceptable. It needs to make sense too. It should, in purpose, be impressive to the individuals who view it. To compose the presentation, you need to create a template (bearing in mind that a whole array of templates is possible/available) using a standard layout and consistent formatting. That's where the Slide Master option comes in.
If the "Normal View" of slides is the physical realm experience, then the Slide Master option is the Phase state. The Slide Master on PowerPoint (the program!) transcends Normal View. Slide Master is not an actual mode of experience like Normal View, though. It is the limbo where ideas and creativity are expressed. Its existence, although experienced as though it's actual while you play in that mode, is still theoretical and not yet applied to Normal View until you select the "Apply To All" option and play the presentation in order to decide whether it is suitable or not.
So, in the Slide Master limbo, anything goes as fas as reality is concerned - the impossible is possible there. There may even be many different levels of that limbo, where some are closer to this physical universe idea than others. The template for this universe has long been created in the levels that transcend it and the template has been evolving in Normal View ever since - albeit slowly (just like in PowerPoint where you can change the template in Normal View but what you can do there is limited compared to what you can do in Slide Master).
When we enter the Phase, we can play with the various Slide Master options, so to speak, but we don't have the "Apply To All" option there. at least not that I know of. I haven't discovered it. If we did, in theory, we'd be able to affect the physical realm directly from the Phase state and create tulpas all over the place.
In the Phase, our minds can create things spontaneously. Perhaps these ideas manifest in various physical realities once they 'decay' from the non-physical limbo. As far as I'm aware, the creation and evolution of objects and beings in this world are eventuated by an unconscious function within the program...at least from our current perspective. It's like PowerPoint creations being updated as we try things out.
You can insert images or backgrounds on the Slide Master, position place holders, format text styles and add standard text. This configuration is then automatically applied to all the slides in the presentation."
Scientific are starting to agree with theories about the "physical world" is just an illusion.
It may be that the physical realm is a more persistent dream environment...a more condensed reality which is intrinsically made of the same energy as dreams. Tibetan Buddhists consider everything to be consciousness. Interestingly, the quantum level of physical reality appears to behave in a similar fashion to the macro level of a dreamworld.
I agree with your point of view.
I will take a look to "My big TOE trilogy", and I invite you to watch a movie called "What the bleep do we know?", which actually talks about quantum theories and reality. It changed my point of view about the reality.
Please do. I think you will love it. Suddenly, the reality of the waking world and the reality experienced in the Phase will start to make sense. You may also like this guy:http://www.astralpulse.com/frankkepple.html
I've seen that video, by the way! It is very interesting and certainly food for thought. I particularly liked John Hagelin and Amit Goswami. You may also want to get your hands on Goswami's Physics of the Soul
(which references experiments like the double-slit with electrons along with his theoretical model of reality). He seems keen on showing that the Tibetan Book of the Dead
is right. All is consciousness.
Sorry for my last comment... I don't know what was I thinking. Actually I have dualistic beliefs and I'm completely opposed to the persons who don't believe in nothing else than the physical body.
The next time I post a comment, I will be more careful explaining myself. Promise.
No need to apologise. I have done the same thing before. It is a genuine mistake and I know exactly where you are coming from. I have actually said things that later came to realise to be contradictions of what really resonates with me. When people pointed things out to me I suddenly became aware of the fact that I thought as they did in the first place! LOL!
I have trouble with the materialistic view too. There are too many gaps and in the end it is just a creed like any other. My suspicions are stronger on the possibility that the mind extends beyond the physical, it transcends it, and it is responsible for creating things on this level of reality. We unconsciously grow our brains in my opinion, not the other way around. Just as thoughts exert influence in the non-physical environments, so it is in the physical but on a slower and not-so-apparent level. It's like giraffes' ungulate ancestors having short necks aeons ago and looking up at acacia trees and wishing that they could reach for the nutrients. They looked like antelopes then but many millennia later, voila...long-necked giraffes. It took all that time - in this level of reality - for their wish to come true. Hence consciousness is always looking for more efficient ways to improve. This world is an idea in the making...
As for us, I think intrinsically, we are the empty void which is full of overlapping realities existing in their designated vibratory frequencies. It's a "full-void" as someone once described it here. As long as there is something happening in this void, we will always experience something. This, to me, is more probable than the view that affirms this physical reality to be the only existent one.
Sometime ago people thought what they could hear was the only sound waves there were...until new technology revealed ultrasonic frequencies. One day, I suspect, science will acknowlege other extensions of reality - levels where thoughts have a more defined structure.
