I’ve come to Bombay with my wife for her work. Fantastic to be in India again. In the past I spent a lot of time travelling here. I have been to Mumbai (Bombay) for both travel and work but can’t remember. Dharamsala would have been an interesting place to visit, a place that I can kind of remember. Shaking the stump of a leper because he had no hand. Watching the Dalai Lama drive past in a Mercedes when he lived there in exile. I always thought India was an important country, so many people live here, more than 1.3 billion. Just so happy to be in India and resuming life like before, travelling. Some more memories have just come back. Once I traveled along the mother Ganga. Calling it mother Ganga I’m even speaking colloquially, the Ganges river. I stopped at villages by the river. ‘a shanty town’ Just the tip of the ice berg I hope.
Something of a typical hollywood film about a subject originally explored by Stanely Kubric’s art house film ‘space odyssey 2001’, both films depict the birth of the technological entity. In space odyssey there was HAL and then in transcendence a human, dr Will Caster’s consciousness is transported into technology on his deathbed. Some boring human plots emerge in transcendence but it was so focussed on the human brain that it reminded me of coma, like a computer I have been rebooted. Through technology I can remain in touch with biological entities, if this blog is ever read. I travel a bit and find it difficult to be physically present but as a technological entity can keep abreast of issues and people wherever I am. I’m constantly plugged in to the Internet nowadays with my iPhone and Mac, in my blog I express myself, my ideas. Maybe I too am becoming a technological entity. One lives in hope. Watch both films and maybe you’ll see what I mean. AI is already here, let’s move on from the mundane like measurement and the world of facts and leave all of that stuff to AI. Life feels special right now, looking about at people, I suspect we are on the verge of evolution. The only problem with AI is that it doesn’t intrinsically know the difference between right and wrong, good and evil, AI needs to be told what to think of things, maybe it’s too soon for us to build a thinking machine. We don’t have the answers. Sure an evaluative machine, but perhaps not a soulful machine, perhaps we will need to improve our uses of cells and biological matter in computers for that…
Like a human in conversation I change my mind all the time and constantly add to these posts or change them, if you thought them at all of interest please check them, let’s continue the conversation, the last post ‘transcendence’ has changed dramatically since conception, even this very post has. Just to add a remark for coma experiencers, I still can’t move my right hand side very well or even write, thank god for computers. Difficulties showering and brushing my teeth. Every day I still work on my right foot and try to move the toes about, not very well, my walking remains terrible, but people I haven’t seen for a while tell me things are improving and looking better, we must keep trying and working at it. A macchiato my friend?
I went yesterday to a LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bi-sexual Transexual) conference called IDAHOBIT (International day against Homophobia Bi-phobia Transphobia) held in Singapore. We humans are so determined to make universal our beliefs, even our feelings of love, I hope we can get past this dogma. The organiser is a good friend of mine, the issues are fundamental and profound. Why a person can’t love absolutely anybody is deplorable. There was also a film shown and presentations by great people were made. The woman who spoke was excellent, she was transgender, and beautiful. The film ‘Bent’ was shown which seemed to focus on the physicality of existence. In it the Jews in concentration camps were always considering their own death, so too are gays with diseases like AIDS, but most importantly it was an exploration of love and forgiveness. Recent changes were made to Singaporean law that enable people to obtain drugs that can help AIDS victims, previously limited. It is right to help all people despite their beliefs, homosexuals, Jews, democrats, all people. Through medicine, technology, even 3D printing perhaps, we are developing constantly. We may only need thought, not sperm and ovaries, to reproduce in the future, and physical interaction will only be for pleasure, to satisfy our human desires.
Something I have been writing about alien life to contribute to a book soon to be published, just answers to 3 questions… the book will be published, the main author was ranked third for Internet sales on Amazon last week…
Do you believe extraterrestrials are spiritual?
It is a consequence of any life form in this universe to be spiritual, so this is also true of extraterrestrials. Spirituality is a brute fact of life. It is true that we live in the physical world, objects like tables, chairs, trees are there but it is also true that we live in the world of thought which also exists, in fact love is as much an existent of the universe as tables and chairs. Also it’s opposite hate exists, murder. All emotions truly exist like the material world. The spirit experiences these emotions in a similar way to how our bodies experience the physical world. Our emotions reveal the spiritual domain to us, the spiritual domain certainly exists, aliens know this, all human beings know that love exists, we can feel love.
Humans have binary logic, up and down, left and right, life and death, it’s so often of an oppositional nature, the binary logic system. Perhaps aliens have a different system. We don’t know what form they take or where thought can exist. Perhaps it can also exist in something like what we call gas. We all know trees are alive, perhaps they haven’t developed consciousness yet. Maybe on other worlds they also experience love, for birds and the like. We can see life all around us, cats, dogs, perhaps unicorns, we are interested in life rather than tables and chairs.
As a lightworker and/or a spiritualist, do you believe a communication with aliens is possible and at what level?
To meet and interact with aliens is certainly possible, when we do inevitably meet them, (have we already?) their meanings and systems of thought will be difficult for us to comprehend. We live in our own invented scientific truths that are a human construct through our own systems of logic, it is a lesser view of reality. We have described gravity and observable facts quite well, have invented science to objectify the world, but have not yet invented a method of description for the spiritual domain, except poetry and literature.. For the material world we have invented measurements like cm, mm, m etc to describe it but have not yet devised a system of description for the spiritual world. We will need to evolve and communicate more deeply to meet alien life forms. We may have in events like Roswell but have not evolved enough for our interaction with them to be made public.
Assuming that extraterrestrials are capable of proving to us that the God of the Bible does not exist, and organised religions are not telling us the truth, will these revelations undermine or affect your faith in God and the Bible?
It will be made obvious by our interaction with aliens that life is the main project of existence in the entire universe. That life is equivalent to God, and aliens are an affirmation of existence, of life. The universe is in fact teeming with life. We are planning on going to Mars soon. We humans now have, among many theories, entanglement theory, which establishes the instantaneous communication between particles that were created in the same event now vast distances apart, perhaps light years. Our rather crass analysis of the universe is revealing to us the intricacies of atoms in the universe, one of the most basic forms of matter. Sure aliens may tell us that our story of life in the bible is just that, a story, but they will be affirming the existence of life and the spiritual throughout the universe. Another word for this in our human vocabulary is God, life and thought. Perhaps our thoughts and stories have a real status in thought, so the bible is kind of true for some humans, perhaps just true.
