White Powder Gold, or Monoatomic Gold - An Authentic Ascension Process
Someone sent me an email regarding nagging questions. Some of the questions are among those that are the only ones worth asking, while others are just plain obtuse, and so I post them here, with my answers. I'll preface it with my response to the sender, who will have to jump in here and take credit for the questions if so desired.
It's a video game, and none of it matters. It seems like it does, especially to the characters that move about according to those with the game-controlling "paddles," virtually insurmountably so, because it has to or it would be devoid of experience, but it doesn't matter. Everybody's, and everything's a chesspiece. End of story.
So, since you're receiving so little satisfaction in your desire to count, it's probably best to go find something that will reinforce your need to count, your need to have things matter, your need to be "in charge," your need to choose.
I've answered pretty much all your questions in the Unteachings and posts, sometimes multiple times, but because some of them are the only questions worth asking, I'm going to post them, without citing you, and answer them again. If you want your named tagged on them, you'll have to do it.
I'm not being crass here, because you must do what you must do, no matter what, and nothing can change what that is or when you'll actually wake up, and you know that this virtual vessel functioning as a symbol called Jason Davis feels a concept called "love" for you, very much indeed.
Upon very careful reading and deep contemplation, there is so much more being stated than the words convey of themselves.
Q: If it's all a script or a dream, why bother trying to become enlightened?
A: Why indeed, as there is no question that you can’t TRY to DO anything. There is either do, or do not. But if it is a dream/script, then enlightenment is the process of waking up in it. Why do that? To end suffering. The tradeoff is the end of ego-defined undesirable impactful experience, which is the same thing as saying the end of debilitating emotion. The passion remains, but becoming like the Q Continuum is the result, and I’m not so sure that there are many here who are ready to become emotionless. Here’s a question for you: would you rather feel the heart-exploding “falling-in-loveness” when meeting “the one”? Or would you rather look upon “her” as a sleeping ghost? Which, by the way, is how a flower, or the Sun, looks upon you.
Emotion = convinced that it’s real, which is necessary to benefit from the experience itself.
Q: How could anyone be able to get there any faster than the script allows by meditating or using alchemy?
A: Define “faster.” What does it mean? The more accurate question is: “Why did I select the DVD that included the use of alchemy as a storyline component to achieve what this video game calls enlightenment?”
Q: And once enlightened, how does one dispel all thoughts of how much more evolved he is than those who have not pierced the membrane?
A: Once enlightened, thinking that way bit by bit becomes impossible, for many reasons, not the least of which being that he or she knows there is no evolution to begin with, that he or she is a cardboard prop playing the role of someone who is awake in the dream. When I tore through, it was instantly not possible for me to think that way, but so far, with others I’ve ushered through, old human habits seem to die pretty hard (reiterating that I’m fully aware I was a participatory element in the ushering event).
Q: If a person who asserts that he is enlightened has not dispelled all thoughts about what he has achieved, how can he have achieved what he thinks he has?
A: Answered above.
Q: If each person thought that he is the only one in the script, why is it that each person in my script thinks that he would be the only real one in the script, including myself?
A: Let’s replace “script” with “video game.” Again, from the standpoint of the characters in the video game: who is perceiving whom?
Q: If we say "the dead bury the dead," then aren't the concepts of life and death completely meaningless?
A: Thou sayest, and this of course is absolutely the case. But let’s tie this question in with the previous one. There’s a character in the video game, and he (according to his perception) tries and tries and tries to get past Level 3 without knowing that something else is running “his” show. He falls off the cliff over and over because the Flutintahgin Ice Dragon keeps knocking him off, and he “dies,” again and again, only to reappear once again at the outset of Level 3 with no memory of the previous go at it.
Q: Why even use the word "dead" if we're all dead?
A: Why use words at all? They’re containers of concepts, and nothing more. If One is true, and it is, then the word “dead” is irrelevant. If it were relevant, then there would be both One AND dead.
Q: If we're all dead, couldn't we just as easily say that we're all alive and there is no such thing as death?
A: If you prefer, but there is a big difference in my world between the words “dead” and “death.” Get my meaning?
Q: Aren't we all just dreamers having the thought that we are living beings having thoughts about dreaming and not dreaming and being dead or alive?
A: Better stated: both the dreamer and the dreamt so thoroughly addicted to the belief that it’s all real that waking up is actually the undesired event. Waking up is what happens when the split consciousness fragment (known as “person”) completely relinquishes any notion of self, and all notions of self are addictions, the need to have it be real for the sake of experience. But in asking that very question, at least some of your other questions are moot.
I’ll reiterate what was stated in an answer above. Would “you” rather experience the concept of falling in love? Or would you rather be free of every emotion, which includes falling in love? Just ask the Sun how he feels about you.
Q: If we really have no free will, why not give up trying to accomplish anything and live lives of total hedonism?
A: Please forgive me for having to say this, but this question is just plain…uh…obtuse. You already know the answer. BUT, if that is your design, so shall it be. I’m not designed to be a hedonist (at least not yet ;-D). Are you? And once again, you can’t TRY to accomplish anything. As for me, I just do what I like doing, and that is precisely what I’ve been saying here. Do you do what you like doing? Now, did I TRY to say it? Or did I just say it? That you have not truly awakened…is that because I’ve TRIED and FAILED to wake you up? Or did I just do what I like doing and write stuff?
Q: Isn't there some purpose for the universe that we can all choose to make some contribution to?
A: You mean purpose for the dream? I hope so. Because there is no universe. But if there is a purpose, it is to experience a vast and terrible and terrifying and brutal and beautiful story, but this has been said so many times here. It is so important to get this part. If you dream tonight that you’re on your back looking up at the vastness of the firmament: in that dream is that a universe you’re contemplating?
And here’s the noodle-baker. It IS a universe, but it’s no more nor less valid than the universe being dreamt by your neighbor, and numbers among the infinite number of universes which must exist in order to accommodate the ego-necessities of every thought.
Q: Wouldn't a purposeless existence focused exclusively on maximizing pleasure in the present moment and minimizing pain be decadent and bring about the decay of civilization?
A: I don’t know why that would be, but more importantly I don’t know why the decay of civilization matters at all, since it would be the decay of something that doesn’t really work (in the minds of sleepers) as it is. To me, the word “decadent” is absolutely meaningless. But being that it’s a dream, as you yourself have already stated, what could make the decay of a dream civilization be in any way a meaningful event?
There are dream-realms, other mental levels (otherwise known as dimensions), for example, that are nothing but the endless experience of pleasure, designed for that purpose, with never a thought, ever, of civilization as you perceive it to be or that something called “decay” is even possible or in the lexicon of understanding. But that's a different video game. Have you been to the video store and seen how many video games there are? They're all mental levels. Now consider that there are an infinite number of video games.
