Bro, I'm not trying to convince you. You see everything from your perspective and I'm saying that's the very reason you don't question it because you don't question your perspective. It takes time and effort to do that. If you're not there yet it is not constructive to try and force someone to be there. And yes, it can be an act of selfishness, wanting other people to join you wherever you are. No, the reality is that different people are on different levels and what you need on your level is different that what I need on mine. The experiences you have on your level are different from the experiences on mine. This is not about who is better. This is about time. And in time you will get there. I believe in you.
I have no doubt that you are a very intelligent brotha. In fact, you remind me of myself at a younger age which means you have every potential to be better than me by the time you turn my age. When I think about some of the potential I see in the youth, it makes me proud. So I want you to argue with me and do whatever you have to do, mentally, to keep making progress. Don't ever feel like you've reached the top of the mountain and there's no more to learn. There always is. But it's like infinity. Knowledge goes around in a circle.
I understand why you believe your experiences should be enough to convince myself and others. Last night I had enough THC in me that I probably solved the meaning of life. And no... you don't have to be high to have these moments of clarity or these moments when your mind communicates your subconscious or when memories are triggered and you see things. It just helps you experience life more slowly and presently, enhancing your meditation, when you add THC. On top of that I hit the massage button my bed so I had vibrations hitting me from head to heel. The stimulation to my whole nervous system... It was amazing.
The reason I don't see gods and demons anymore is because I don't believe they exist. If I did, I would see them. It's that simple. When you were seven you had enough memories and information that your subconscious could produce visions and yet if you were to draw God from your visions and someone else did the same they would look different. What you saw was based on your own imagination which has been fed by Christian doctrine. I know how it is. Mine was fed by it too. You're in the Matrix. You saw what you were meant to see. Everyone sees what they're meant to see. And you have to cite a vision at a younger age because you don't have these experiences currently to that degree. This is because, as you get older your mind relies more on your 5 senses to match patterns already in your mental database. When you're seven your imagination is stronger because your mental database is still "Soft" and malleable. You're still learning reality at age seven so your imagination is much more potent then. The more you spend time in reality the less you get to experience that alternate reality of pure thought and imagination. That's where drugs come in (for those who use them).
Tell me this. Come let us reason together.
Is there any reason why humans, being far younger than God, should have technology that God didn't have a long time ago? So anything we can do he should have done better millions of years before human history started recording. Yet the bible speaks of chariots and thrones and wheels because that was the level of human invention at the time. But what YOU saw, and I say this with the utmost respect, is what your mind reproduced from THEIR (authors of the bible) minds. So YOU see what humans had over 2,000 years ago. You see "robes"... "wheels of fire". Why would he need wheels? Your mind pieced together this image based on the information you were fed in the bible. Much of your vision was fueled by the story of Moshe where God descends on the mountain in fire. That was based on a volcano. The idea of God associated with fire is simply based on sun and volcano mythologies. Why would a being dressed in fire be wearing "robes"? Because in your imagination God is what someone else imagined God to be, based on their time, not yours and not humans 100,000 years into the future. But you didn't criticize your mind's mental image, why? Because you assumed that your experience was real and just so happened to reinforce Christianity and the bible because they are true rather than reality being that your belief that they are true is what reinforced the image of God in your imagination which is what you experienced.
And you're not completely wrong because deep down humans knew we came from the sun. The sun has always been our most important god and we've always personified it. Scientists agree that we came from the sun. Paganism was compatible with Hebrew doctrine because animism has been the basis of both. But of Earth, Water, Wind, and Fire... which one are humans more afraid of?
The human mind is truly amazing. Last night I was seeing vibrations and sound waves as colors and different materials. The paintbrush for the scenes that were created in my mind were literally anything in my memory banks. And when you believe, you buy into those memories, and they intensify. If you're asleep we call it a dream. If you're awake it's called a vision. But in reality one isn't different from the other.
You provide information based on your experiences. Whether you think you are "pushing" a belief or not, really doesn't matter. That word is unnecessarily judgmental. In reality, you only push if you have an agenda. You don't. You're just sharing. And that is part of each one of our purpose, as individual cells of a larger organism; God. From what I saw... its all about energy and the spark generated in the balance of positive and negative forces, or forces moving in opposite directions. We all mimic this and everything we do is intellectually based on and predicated upon gaining energy/power. Without showing the vision it's hard to explain but it is the very source of our intelligence.
But what you see in visions and dreams, is a product of what you have learned and believe. I ask different questions so my brain produces different answers. Those answers then become the basis for more questions. You will do this too. As you gain more intelligence, your questions within your own mind will expand and change and you will get smarter and smarter and ask smarter questions. At some point, unless you're too stubborn, you'll come to the point the point where you'll understand all the things you remember me say. And you'll appreciate the fact that I was saying it and that I was challenging your mind to further grow and develop. You don't need to be there now. Just keep an open mind as much as you can. But also be critical as much as you can. It's like order and chaos. They are only opposites because they are part of the same infinite circle. You need both. This is why AI is based on learning algorithms that compete each other. Competition inspires growth.
