What if we were the only Conscious Being around?

    I think this goes to the spirit of parallel universes and how time travel and the changing of history questions get answered.
    If we can grasp our arms around how vast this universe is, is it outrageous to think that we all operate in our own little universe, and everyone around us acts according to how we "vibrate" to them.
    What proof do you really have that your neighbor isn't just some "mock-up", and that they are merely your projection.
    Sure fits into the "all is one" ideas that some religions bandy about..

      What fits is that we are all here, on Earth in the same damb Universe taking up space cause something has to fill it.  The all in One idea isn't like conformity, cause that would be boring.  It's about being able to live without being subject to starvation, murderers, taxes and stupid crap that makes our lives irritated or stressful or unfullfilling. 

      It is more about making sure "everyone" has something to eat instead of feeding the starving fat ass who obviously does not lack food, while some starving child suffers and the fat ass complains cause he has diabetes or heart failure. 

      Anyways if you could grasp how big the Universe actually is you would think two things, 1. Were f**ked and life doesn't mean a thing, or 2.  There has to be a God, or if you do not like the term God, then there has to be a singularity.

      It is the truth. All is you-One.

      "Each in his own world,
      Here and there  is tossed and twirled."

      Each is also the centre.smile

    No offence my friend. but why would I ever in history "mock-up" - you, whereas I agree you don't exist, only some printed words on a projection monitor. 'the "all is one" ideas' generally are associated with what is called 'enlighenment' or 'sartori', the
    experience of the all as one.
    However there is another way to look at it: it takes space as a medium for the earth to float in, and it takes a sun to provide the gravity and warmth, and it takes more space as an orbit for the sun, and it takes a galaxy to provide the gravity and safe path to travel... So it goes, and all this, a singularity, is necessary for the existence of any of us, unless of course we are just 'mock-ups'.

    How can we call a whole existing person a projection.I want you explain this for me.And also how we vibrate others.

      sandra rinckposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Well, butting in...reverberating others means that what we do effects other people, whether near or far.  Every action we make has a consquence, some are more ignorant to see what effect it has on other people or things they cannot see.  smile

      Examples:  I sneezed, I spead germs.  I ate too much, another got not enough.  I pollute the air with high emission vehicals, someone else got cancer.  I created the hydroden bomb, thousands of people died.  I could afford the high rent, now others are expected to be able to as well.  I came from a poor family but became rich because I worked hard, someone else has no means to even get an education. 

      People think that just because "you" can do it, then others must be able to too and it is not true.  Just because a guy in the Olymipics can run a mile in four minutes doesn't mean I can not matter how hard I try.  Just because you are ( my "you's" are an example, not directed at you, incase you were confused) a math genius doesn't mean I can understand it too.  Just because you got to travel the world doesn't mean that I will ever be able to. 

      Cocky mother hummers who think that just because they can do it, then you can to, are ignorant for beleiving that othes just don't try hard enough.  I want to be a rockstar, I can try my hole life, doesn't mean it is going to happen.  Why?  Because things reverberate. 

      For every action there is an equal or opposite reaction.

    What Sandra said speaks to the whole vibration thing, and the cause/effect model of our actions.  So I won't try to further explain that.
    By the way, if you've ever seen the Matrix, the following would seem less confusing.
    The best analogy I could give (and I learned this from Steve Pavlina) is that we are not really this body, we are controlling this body from somewhere else.  People are no more conscious beings in our reality than they would be in our dreams.  So, the people we see in our dreams are more or less a projection of our reality.
    Yet we wake up from our dreams. 
    Have you ever had the sensation that you know you're dreaming, yet you continue to "play it out?  There's actually a name for this and it's called lucid dreaming.
    Perhaps waking up from this dream (our life) is only obtainable via death.

      That is not so far fetched.  Other sources indicate this as well.  I lucid dream a lot and even struggle to wake myself up sometimes, which is always weird because it makes me think how much harder it must be to wake up from this one.  smile
