Here are some clues to human imagination as give in the prelude to our book, The Dream of Mortal Life, Understanding Human Reality—A Final Warning to the Human Race. The following excerpts are from Human Reality, Who We Are and Why We Exist. The Dream of Mortal Life book is the final addendum to this book.
(Excerpt from Introduction:)
As stated above, we are given many answers to these questions, each individual (king or queen) trying to convince us that his or her idea is correct. When the answers are not straightforward and logical, some of us invent theories, beliefs, and opinions based on our own best speculation. Still, most of the answers remain mysteries and have remained so since the foundation of this world. Therefore, in order to be soundly convinced of true reality, we must be presented with explanations that make sense and do not lead to other questions.
Humans have attempted to answer many of these questions by using their imagination. But just what exactly constitutes our “imagination”? We must first solve this mystery correctly in order to understand true reality. With our unique ability to imagine, we have invented an enormous genre of science and conceptual fiction. Nevertheless, today’s science fiction could very well become tomorrow’s human reality.
But what if we could understand future human reality TODAY? How would acquiring this knowledge affect our world? Would the correct answers to all of our questions improve humanity’s plight? Or are we afraid that this true reality would destroy the established perceptions we have of ourselves—our kingdom within, which currently gives us our personal value and security? Being afraid to face the fact that we might all be wrong—and the conditions found in our world seem to prove this—how long are we going to remain scared and consequently loyal to our bad judgment and ignorance? What will it take before we accept the error of our ways and decide to change our current path? True reality will take away our fears and show us the way.
In ancient times, human imagination influenced the concept of “learning and study.” Finding the answers to life’s mysteries became a source of value to both teacher and student alike. The teacher, who thought he or she knew the correct answers, was valued by the student who did not. If the teacher convinced the student that his or her answers were the truth, the student then valued the learning experience.
There were natural phenomena that couldn’t be explained; but it is human nature to want to understand ourselves and the world in which we live. Ancient teachers, therefore, gave their personal understanding of events and phenomena through the written word. Their writings eventually became respected bodies of literature. However, as humans progressed through experience, these ancient works became modern mythologies. These myths extend beyond the borders of the known earth into the Universe, and somehow gave the people who believed in them a safe concept of themselves and a hope that kept them satisfied with their existence. As we have advanced in thought and discovery, though, we are less and less satisfied with the answers that our teachers have provided us. We are getting tired of myths, hypotheses, and theories. We want the real truth!
In the 20th Century, science fiction began to replace mythology as a source of reality for many people. Human imagination began to provide a new hope for the human race. Advanced technology and understanding opened our minds to possibilities that extended beyond the limited and now seemingly ridiculous beliefs of our ancestors.
Now in the 21st Century, we find ourselves inundated with cinematic theories that create a sense of our incredible capabilities and human potential. We are advancing (at least in our minds) into realms of reality that we often find hard to accept, until they happen right before our eyes. Who would have thought, for example, that Dick Tracy’s telephone- picture watch of the 1940’s would be a reality in the 21st Century? Those living in the 1940’s surely didn’t!
The genre of science fiction-laced movies developed by our creativity and imagination pit imperfect humans against more advanced (but often more evil) beings, which in most cases are not human. Even the aliens we create through our imagination that are sympathetic to the human race, are not presented as creatures similar to us. Equally, it’s hard for even the most creative and imaginative mind to envision an advanced human being (in contrast to an alien creature) helping to save the human race. This is because reality (based on the way human beings treat each other on earth) seems to be leaning towards humans causing their own eventual destruction. Therefore, it appears that a non-human, alien being would be a more logical choice to be the savior of the human race.
Science fiction aside, what if there really are more advanced human beings living on other planets throughout the Universe? And what if they are solely interested in our well-being and happiness, rather than seeking to dominate or destroy us? What if the idea of a “Supreme Creator” is in fact the simpler concept of caring, advanced human beings—parents who created us in their perfect world—sending us here to this earth to let us find out what we would do on our own, without them? Don’t teenagers learn to appreciate what their parents provide for them by leaving a secure home life? Free-willed individuals cannot accurately learn reality unless they live it for themselves.
What if human reality is not about myth and fiction at all, but rather about “science,” based on the work and intelligence of benevolent, highly advanced, perfected human “scientists”? If this is so, then why are they not interceding to help us and prevent us from destroying each other and the planet where we live? Most people would agree that part of true humanity should be the tendency to step in and offer assistance to others in need. So, if more advanced humans than us do exist, and they are aware of us, why aren’t they interceding into our affairs for our benefit? They are humane, aren’t they? They understand humanity, don’t they?
But if someone who does not live on our planet has to step in and offer this assistance to us, then what does that say about our humanity? How can we prove that we deserve to be free-willed humans, if we lack the humanity that should separate us from all other animals in our world? Isn’t it true that there are other animals who act more humanely than we do? Wouldn’t we want to be given the chance to prove our humanity before having a civilization more advanced than our own step in and save us from ourselves?
As our world becomes more connected, we become more aware of the problems facing other cultures of people existing throughout the earth. It seems that the more technology advances, the more interconnected and interdependent we become. We are no longer separate parts of individual nations, but are becoming citizens of planet Earth.
Considering our progress in technological advancements, our future will undoubtedly include the ability to visit other planetary systems in the Universe. What will we do if we encounter other civilizations of human beings that need our help? Wouldn’t our compassion and natural human propensity to help, compel us to step in and do whatever we can to assist these people? WE are humans! And if we have the power and the ability, we should help those in need!
But what happens when the whole of the human race upon this planet becomes needful of assistance? Who is out there in the Universe to offer us the help that we need? Are there any other civilizations of people with the same human nature (humanity) as our own? If these advanced societies have existed thousands, millions, even billions of years longer than we have, wouldn’t their technology and advancements allow them the ability to be aware of us and our needs? Again, if they could help, wouldn’t they?
For us to believe that we are the only human race that exists in the Universe is thoughtless, irresponsible, and illogical. Even if we began our existence as evolving bacteria (as some speculate), doesn’t our ability to reason suggest the probability that there exist other bacteria somewhere in the Universe that have evolved to where we have, and beyond?
Some people have been searching all of their lives for some viable proof that other human civilizations do exist somewhere “out there.” None has come up with any conclusive and hard evidence that would support the fact. Some have wondered why other, more advanced civilizations haven’t made contact with us yet. What are they waiting for?
Well, maybe they don’t think we need their intervention…just yet!
Without them actually making physical contact with us—what other way could we know that they exist? What proof would satisfy our skepticism? What about knowing what they know? Would that understanding and knowledge satisfy our disbelief?
What if they have made contact with us, but do not physically reveal themselves to us so as not to interfere with our own development and learning? If they did reveal themselves, wouldn’t the whole world listen to what they have to say about the Universe and what is happening beyond our tiny planet? Wouldn’t we depend on them to solve all of our problems and teach us how to live in peace and harmony with each other? Wouldn’t they stop us and keep us from destroying each other?
If those who would help are indeed advanced humans, then they would step in and assist us. But they would not do so before giving us a chance to prove our right to free will and the right to have the power associated with being human. With the power of human reason and free will, we have the capability to control our environment, to have dominion over the plant and animal kingdoms of the world, and to do whatever it is that we want to do. As we advance our abilities through technology and understanding, can we be trusted with ultimate human power and capabilities? Can we individually be trusted to continue to advance into future realms of human-based knowledge that will eventually allow us to do things that we can only imagine today? Will we use our extraordinary free will and reason to perpetuate and support the human race or to destroy it?
These are questions waiting to be answered in the future.
The premise of this book is that advanced beings, who know true HUMAN REALITY, are subtly intervening in our lives and giving us the answers to the questions that we all yearn to know. They are doing this to aid us in our continual journey to prove our own humanity and make claim to all the rights and powers associated with existing as a human being. Some of these powers and rights have the ability to make us extremely happy or extremely miserable, depending on how we use them.
The most constant influences and motivational parts of our human nature are our sexual disposition and our will to survive. The majority of the problems of humanity come about as a result of actions that can be traced to some connection with one of these two physical influences. Although hard to accept and admit for some, this fact cannot be ignored as we consider true human reality. The downfall of societies can be traced to, first, how humans dealt with their sexual natures and, secondly, how they dealt with each other as they were forced to provide themselves with the basic necessities of life. These two motivating factors have been a course of study and observation by many of the world’s greatest minds. Their conclusions generally agree that the vast majority of our inhumane history upon this earth has been the result of sexuality and our individual desire to survive.
This being the case, the logical solution to most of our problems would appear to be for us to gain a proper understanding of why these motivational forces cause so many problems for humans; and then to explain how we can eventually eliminate both sexuality and the struggle for survival from our existence. Although suggesting the elimination of human sexuality proposes intellectual suicide, eliminating the struggle for survival is humankind’s greatest hope! To show why and how to accomplish both of these endeavors would be profound! It would literally be the salvation of the human race! The proof given throughout this book will overwhelmingly demonstrate that one day, the elimination of sexuality for most of us, along with the elimination of the constant struggle for survival for all of us, will both have to become human reality, or we will be faced with our own extinction.
In addition to the physical forces that have motivated and influenced our existence, the desire for equality and mutual respect has been the greatest emotional challenge that we have faced throughout our history upon the earth. It seems to be an emotional condition that we will always encounter during our imperfect state as human beings.
In order to create value for themselves and gain a sense of equality with everyone else, human beings have developed their own individual belief systems. Sometimes, they have even pretended to possess personal powers associated with the supernatural and paranormal. To address all of the ways that humans create personal value for themselves would create a voluminous work. Such a work would only lead to a further deluge of information that individual readers (according to their own perception) might find insignificant and unrelated to their own personal quest to understand true reality.
The real truth is that there is no true human reality in any belief system invented by humankind—not even one! There is no such thing as the “supernatural” or the “paranormal,” or any other mysterious occurrence that cannot immediately be understood by the human mind, if the correct explanation is given. “Mystery” and “phenomena” are simply acknowledgements that we can’t understand something about our reality.
As disquieting as this proclamation might be for most, its substance and veracity will unequivocally be proven by the end of this book. If the reader will have patience concerning those things which are currently accepted as “mysterious” and “phenomenal,” and also maintain a sincere desire to understand more about his or her existence than he or she can honestly admit that he or she presently knows, then the reader will be astonished at how much emotional peace and security he or she will find by having all the mysteries of life explained in plainness. The true reality will surely set one free!
This book will give the direct, sensible answers to all of life’s most difficult questions. Those responsible for this book will never pollute the sanctity of the reader’s own kingdom. They will always respect the king or queen who sits upon the throne. They are knocking at your gate. They will go away if you do not want to be bothered. But they will leave this book outside the gates and walls of your kingdom, hoping, for your own sake, that you might one day open the gate just enough to grab the book and pull it back into your kingdom—the kingdom that is built within you.
In the solitude and security of your own world, engaging the power of your own mind, you are now presented with the opportunity to read a book that will finally help you understand,
HUMAN REALITY—Who We Are and Why We Exist.
1:34. OUR CONSCIOUSNESS SUPPORTS THE IDEA OF AN ESSENCE
Human imagination has tied consciousness to the idea of a soul— the concept that in each of us there exists an immaterial essence that survives death and perhaps even predates birth. It is believed that the soul allows us to think and feel, remember and reason, and that our individual personality, individuality, and humanity originate from it. Perhaps the first step is to understand “imagination,” including where it comes from and how it is associated with our consciousness. Then we can arrive at a better understanding of exactly how we have imagined another part of us that is separate from our physical body, which body takes its first breath at birth and exhales its last breath at death.
From what science has surmised, the operations of the “soul” are attributed to physical processes in the brain. But exactly how these chemical and electrical processes send signals between trillions of brain cells and are transformed into the actions and experiences of the human soul (thoughts, emotions, and a sense of self) is still unknown.
No one can doubt that a strong correlation exists between the brain and consciousness. In understanding who we are, we need more than just a correlation; we need an explanation. How and why brain processes give rise to consciousness is the question that needs to be answered.
3:21. THE ABILITY TO DREAM, IMAGINE, AND REASON
The difference between the way humans dream, imagine, and reason is the mental state in which they do these things. We dream in an unconscious state, such as sleep, or in a state in which we place our mental thoughts outside the realm of our current reality—such as daydreaming while we are supposed to be working.
The difference between dreaming and using imagination is that imagining is a deliberate mental process, while dreaming is an involuntary mental process that begins in our mind randomly. While both dreams and imagination are often artful, whimsical, and associated with a relaxed thinking process, reasoning, on the other hand, stresses our mental capacity to its limit.
The process of reasoning, or figuring things out, is simply utilizing the process of imagination, or better, dreaming up a way to solve a problem by concentrating a proportionately greater amount of energy on the thought than we would while actually imagining or dreaming. The mental energy used to reason is much more demanding than that which is needed to dream or imagine. This is why some people can’t reason as well as others. It is not that their human essence is any less “human,” but rather that their particular imperfect brain might not be capable of producing the “mental energy” needed to reason appropriately.
The genetically inherited, imperfect brain can only produce the “mental energy” provided by the instructions passed on from its parents. Our widely differing abilities to use our brains are dependent upon the physical makeup of our individual brains. Due to genetic differences, some people have the capability of reasoning much more quickly and efficiently than others. This says nothing of who we are, however, because if the individual essence of a slow-learning person was placed in a body where the brain functioned more proficiently, they would be just as “smart” as everyone else. The degrees of so-called “intelligence” found among human beings have nothing to do with the essence, but all to do with the physical limitations of the imperfect body.
3:28. OUR IMAGINATION SEPARATES US FROM ANIMALS
The fact that we can call upon ideas that are not part of our current reality (imagine them) separates our thought processes and abilities from those of all other animals. However, it would be offensive to animal lovers to maintain the opinion that humans are far more intelligent and more humane than every other life form. It would be equally insulting to the other side, to support the idea that we are not much different from animals, believing that our ancestors were once wild animals themselves. To take sides in this debate would mean either the alienation of the readers who receive much more companionship and love from their pets than they do from other humans, or the alienation of those who have had a friend or relative mauled or killed by the very same animals the victim once protected and adored. It is just as hard for the victim of an animal attack to see the similarities between animals and humans, as it is for the victim of war or crime to see the differences.
No matter how hard one might try to defend the animal lover and humble the human, the reality remains that no other animal uses reason, language, inquiry, wonder, longing, morality, aesthetics, creativity, imagination, and ambition as proficiently or as often as we do. There are those who ascribe to some species of animals the use of all of these attributes. Nevertheless, it takes a reasonable, inquisitive, wondering, longing, moral, creative, and imaginative mind to make the comparison make sense to those who do not see any similarity.
Think about this: Ranchers keep tens of hundreds of pounds of pure horse and cattle muscle from escaping by simply installing a thin wire with a small amount of electricity running through it. The horses and cattle do not long to eat the greener grass on the other side of the electric fence, nor do they wonder or reason and inquire about the smell of distant fresh clover. But even if they did, they still do not have the capability, the creativity, or the imagination to realize that it would only take a simple step to break the flimsy boundary and become free (even after many years of experience of being corralled behind the fence).
4:4. OUR PERCEPTION OF BEAUTY WAS FOUNDATIONALIZED
The primordial foundational process also set the standards of beauty that will stay with us throughout our eternal existence. Every advanced human being is a very beautiful person. They each possess the ability to choose for themselves what their physical body looks like. Although each is individually unique, each is also the quintessential example of human beauty. Therefore, when a newly created primordial human first opens its eyes and sees the people surrounding it, the standard of what a human being should look like is permanently established within the essence.
Rest assured that there are no uncontrollable, powerful “monster-like,” big-headed, or green creatures with tentacles anywhere in the Universe that are going to one day take over or destroy the human race; having an established measure of all that is beautiful confirms this. The ultimate and most advanced life form in the Universe is a beautiful human being.
Even as the most beautiful examples of the human body are part of our first experiences, so are the most pristine and picturesque environments possible in the natural world. The perfectly beautiful mountains, plains, rivers, lakes, oceans, forests, and jungles of our primordial environment add to our foundational alignment of natural beauty and far surpass our present imperfect environment, even in its most glorious splendor. In our primordial perfect world, our advanced creators had the knowledge and capability of creating the most exquisite architecture ever imagined. Once we experienced its magnificence and beauty, our own unique sense of architectural style and design was established. As a result, our mortal ability to recognize symmetry of lines and forms now allows us to build buildings and construct engineering marvels through the use of our imagination and reason. Likewise, our sense of rhythm, synchronicity, tempo, and timing, all established during our foundationalization, enables us to recognize the soothing melody of the sounds of both the natural world and the music we create by using our imagination and reason.
Our ability to imagine and reason, which is associated with our pursuit of and longing for happiness, is simply our conscious mind trying to find a way to make us feel comfortable with our current environment. Our common sense is the “measure” of our imagination and reason. If an action we are considering “makes sense” to us, we do it. Unlike other organisms that have no ability to reason, and which react and adapt to their surroundings, we find ways to change the environment so that it reacts and adapts to us—until it fulfills our desire for happiness. It is within us where we find our individual happiness, the measure of which was established through a perfect Human Foundationalization Process.
19:28. OUR PERFECT WORLD IS ONLY LIMITED BY OUR IMAGINATION
The specifics of what these planets will look like and what our Eternal Home will look like will depend on each of us. Using our imagination correctly, we can visualize exactly what we would want our home to look like.
Before we came to this earth, we already knew what we wanted, based on our vast experience in seeing other worlds and observing all different varieties of environments in which human beings exist throughout the Universe. The perfect world we came from has been discussed previously. From the descriptions given, and by using your own intuitive, free-willed imagination, you can create your own world in your mind’s eye. And just as easy as it is to form the thought of your perfect world through your imagination, our advanced creators and servants will one day help you create in reality your very own perfect world!
(From the Epilogue:)
We have something that no other life form upon our earth possesses. We have an imagination. Although we are often convinced that the use of our imagination is not a part of our true reality, it still remains our only source of information of what a perfect human world could possibly be like. Our imagination is our connection to our past experience and to our future potential.
We have progressed in the way that we control our surrounding environment and get it to do what we want it to do by using our imaginations. Technology is simply the end result of using our free will and imagination. We utilize technology to (hopefully) improve our world and its social and physical environments. We want these environments to benefit our human natures. As technology seems to advance faster than our current ability to imagine, we are beginning to see that the imagination of our past is becoming the true reality of our future. For this reason, this book has only explained a basic, minuscule part of our complete HUMAN REALITY. The rest of what any of us could possibly want to know about ourselves and the primordial, advanced world in which we were first created, or the world that would be perfect for each of us, is accessible through the proper use of our imagination.
Because imagination is a product of human free will, it also must have some specific limits and controls in place in order for it to serve us properly in better understanding our true reality. Because each of us has an essence in which is recorded all of our unique personal past experiences, we cannot expect that the conclusions of our own imagination supersede all those of others. We must accept that our imagination is NOT true reality, but a conscious effort each of us is personally trying to make in order to make sense out of what we feel is right for us. We must be willing to accept that we have an imperfect brain that cannot fully access what is recorded in our essence. And we must accept the purpose for which we currently have an imperfect brain.
