In man, consciousness is all about originality and creativity and story-telling as strange as that must seem to those who might not realize this instantly. Language actually has a way of constructing stories quite unbeknownst to the brains which "compose" them, and even more so as to their LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. But, of course, those brains did not "compose" them at all! Life composed them all long before it seeded human DNA with the capacity for language - specifically its location, and therefore reception, and therefore translation. (Keep these terms in mind as you continue...)
People simply do not and quite literally can not comprehend the connection between the "stories in their heads", how they got there, where they now (apparently) live, and the apparently external events that "SEEM" to have preceded, or even triggered them.
For example, someone might tell an amazing story of "lost and found" (pet, trinket, sibling, whatever), and their telling is so odd, weird perhaps, out of the ordinary, that in their view "must be believed" because of that oddness. The number of similar re-tellings** - and, believe me, they are ALWAYS re-tellings - is incalculable to say the least! Including, but not limited to alien visitations, after-death journeys, conversations with gods, angels, dead people, etc., etc. Yet, a few here and there can always see through the ruse, the wily subterfuge, the deception, always intended to deceive**. (Life is the DECEIVER!)
Human consciousness is directly wired into the language that constructs realities they perceive, "after-the-fact", sometimes even in reverse order, the way dreams are recalled, in reverse order. Time is the culprit, AND the effect, in all these misunderstandings, and those who deliver such odd stories to themselves, their friends, even more publicly, are not indicating - by any stretch - they are "more conscious" than ordinary standard-issue humans, but JUST AS or even LESS THAN. JUST AS, because everyone alive is subject to this subterfuge, just as almost everyone is subject to believing them; but LESS THAN, because the more and longer people fail to realize what's actually occurring, the more they become deluded. Dismiss them quickly, one an all!
"WTF did you say?"
Story-tellers are not Creative nor Original - not in the sense I discuss herein - just clever and capable reporters of language-based sentences strung together, not unlike the strings strung between tin cans of friends in their bedrooms "having conversations"...
...strings (threads of thought), strung between tin cans (head brains), in their bedrooms (imaginary worlds consisting of all the other threads - their "neural webspace").
"WTF did you say?"
Just this, nobody who actually IS more conscious than ordinary humans, would ever fall into such TRAPS that, like pools of tar behind the eyes, keeps the extinct animal (the clueless squared) TRAPPED in a goo-field, who never knows it - EVEN AFTER more conscious persons might remind them of their entrapment.
The MOST MOST MOST favorite and easily accessible "stories" are called memories, and reported memories are called anecdotes, and all such often recalled and retold (ad nauseum) stories, and all such TRAPS are designed by LIFE to confuse Humanity into believing they are... ready?... SPECIAL!
Humans are NOT SPECIAL, any more than bugs are particularly special. Oh, the SPECIES is special to be sure, well, until it is no longer necessary and quickly extincted. Same for all other life forms on this planet! The only thing that is NOT extincted, is consciousness, because it is not alive the way life forms are alive. Oh, it is ALIVE, but at the same time, non-materially containable in matter. It is free-flowing energy filling the Universe, and only occasionally "coagulating" into "clumps" of physicality that in some unknown manner attracts consciousness to it.
Here is what Real I can DO (without quotation marks) that ordinary brains can not do: Create an Original "take" on what the entire planetary human species "believes" is going on here, inside them, and outside them, that literally BLOWS THE SOCKS OFF all prevailing Earth-bound (Tar-Pit bound) "beliefs". Creativity and Originality in that LOCATION, where such is available to all who discover the hows and wherefores, can blow one's OWN MIND, surprising in such a way that one will never return to that TAR-PIT one discovers one has been dwelling for so damn long! Call it, the END of memories, anecdotes and personal story-telling... (not that anything is forgotten, ONLY THAT it is not re-TOLD!)
**re-telling: No memories or anecdotes were destroyed in the out-flowing of this highly energetic transmission never ever TOLD before... hope your tin-can telephone picked up something!
ps- Always "IN FOCUS, IN TRANSIT"... so that nothing sticks, not even "you", and the tar-field behind your eyes always remains VIRGINAL, having TRAPPED nothing whatsoever, allowing the "Blessed One" the power to escape when ESCAPE becomes possible.
