ZetaTalk - Ch.6

The rules we must observe that prevent our machines from becoming alive, from becoming sentient or conscious thinking machines, must seem confusing to humans who observe that their computers often seem more intelligent than other humans. A retarded human who can barely recall the sequences necessary to put one leg into a set of trousers is alive and conscious, but a powerful computer monitoring a myriad of logic threads simultaneously is not. Just how does that compute? The difference is subtle, and where the line may seem blurred to humans who are confusing performance with intrinsic intellectual independence, ie, choice, the issue is not confusing to us. We will expand on the differences between performance and choice.

Confusion over whether robots are alive, make choices, or might be incarnated with spirits lies in understanding what is seen versus what is unseen on the surface. On the surface, humans see robots as able to entertain focus on a task at hand to the exclusion of all possible distractions, and thus, for instance, win at a game of chess over a human chess master. Is the robot not thinking? Yes and no, depending upon how one classifies thought. To primitive peoples, a simple computer program appears to be thinking, as it can rapidly arrive at a conclusion while entertaining a problem it has been programmed to address. Computer programs are not considered brains by most humans only because they can gaze at and understand the program, and can see that the computer is simply following instructions.

What is unseen is that robots are bounded in ways that DNA is not bounded. Humans are bounded by their biology, an inability to put aside their biological needs, so that they cannot travel where robots can, exclusively concentrate on a task as robots can, or remain calm in disturbing circumstances such as a burning building or the torture of another human might present. In overcoming biological imperatives, robots seem superior, especially since the average human does not understand how they have been programmed and are in awe. Robots, however, are bounded in what they can address. Even where robots are designed to repair themselves and make minor adjustments to their surroundings, they are still operating within their original programming.

A robot arrives at its decision quickly because it does not ponder. Humans are virtually unlimited in their ability to ponder, which is what makes their life-form attractive to the stuff of souls so that entities form within humans. Robots are utterly boring, as they have an inability to ponder, being programmed to reach quick conclusions after considering a set number of variables, and thus do not attract the stuff of souls, regardless of appearances!

Stuff of Souls
What humans refer to as the souls, what is sometimes called the spirit, or which we refer to as the entity, is not what is supposed by most humans. They imagine a vapor, something that can move through walls like a ghost, something without substance that seeks to influence the physical world around it with little success. They realize the soul can remember, as past lives are recalled, but do not imagine that a physical brain is required. The view that humans have of the soul is, as could be expected, the view from the human vantage point. what is missing from that vantage point is the ability to see the soul, as the substance is not something that the human eye can perceive. The soul has substance, and grows in bulk early in its development as many incarnations, many lives, are experienced. This bulk cannot be gauged by humans, who look upon one another as having equal souls, when nothing of the kind is the reality. Some souls are so tiny and poorly constructed that they dissipate after the incarnation, what we term aborted entities. This type of soul may be present in many animals and even some plant forms, as the stuff of souls is dispersed throughout the universe and incarnations happen naturally. Where the human eye cannot gauge the mass of another soul, the spirit gauges this very well. You know instinctively that another is old and wise.

Not only does the soul have memory, it also does not forget. it is not by accident that intelligent life-forms have nerves, brains, and memory in the form of chemical impressions. The stuff of souls is simply another density level, one that touches on all the others. it is finer and more durable, at the same time. it could be called the base of matter, in that regard, as it permeates all levels where matter can reside. Intelligent life-forms come in many shapes and sizes, but all have brains and nerves. Thus a soul can incarnate in a hominoid at one point in its development, and into quite another life-form during another incarnation, without any adaptation required. The spirit communicates to the mind by bio-chemical means, by inciting bio-chemical activity. It does so by adjusting itself to the density of the incarnated body and to the peculiar bio-chemistry of the life-form. During each incarnation the spirit quickly familiarizes itself with its new physical body, and gets down to business.

Soul Nature
The soul does not require food or nourishment as physical life-forms do. The human animal cannot retain its shape without fuel, without maintaining a certain temperature and replacing damaged or consumed bio-chemicals. It must eat to survive. Souls do not require a temperature maintenance, and by their nature maintain their own chemistry, the only outside reach required is to acquire more of the stuff of souls, present everywhere in the universe, when growth in bulk is occurring.

Humans are used to thinking of the senses as merely sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell - five senses. A sixth sense is attributed to all other hunches, and is variously described as being supported by ESP or intuition. The human body alone has many other senses, and the soul surpasses any given body in which it happens to incarnate. Senses not mentioned are the sense of balance, where relationship to the gravity center is sensed, the sense of motion, related to the sense of balance, and the sense of being ill, where the human senses that all is not right in the body. We have mentioned only those senses that the common man can readily relate to, not the myriad that in fact exist. Between the soul and its surroundings, there are many touch points. Thus, even thought the soul does not actually have eyes, it can see!

The stuff of souls, the substance spirits are composed of, transcends all density levels, as it can interact with what humans call the physical world on all density levels, simultaneously. Most humans are at best newly formed entities incarnated into an intelligent body native to the Earth. Both the entity, or spirit form, and the human body newly emerged into consciousness are aware only of the corporeal world around them. They naturally think this predominant. It is not. Those formed entities who have experienced thousands of incarnations and have begun to interact with entities from other worlds are aware of the spirit world also.

But until an entity has arrived at higher-density levels and has itself been at the helm during density shifting, they are only superficially aware of how vast the universe actually is.

Incarnations occur naturally and are the way that forming entities get their start. The stuff of souls is everywhere, disbursed throughout the universe, but so disbursed it does not make a soul. Does a single strand of DNA constitute life? Yes and no. By itself it is a complex chemical, but when combined with other DNA in a living organism it is considered life. The stuff of souls tends to gather in living things as the environment is more interesting than non-living environments. It is not so much that it is attracted to life as that it lingers, and thus begins to accumulate. Without conscious intelligence it fails to establish a personality - a self - and after death of the life-form disburses again.

After a certain point, when the lessons to be learned from the shear fact of life have been well learned by the newly formed entities maximize the wisdom to be gained form their incarnations. Formed entities, operating in fourth density or higher, surround the immature entity when it has freed itself from a dead or dying body, and communicate. These conferences may be short, with a second incarnation occurring almost instantly when the path is clear and incarnation opportunities are available, or they may drag out, if the lesson to be learned requires a special environment or if incarnation opportunities are limited. In the meantime the forming entity does not wander, as it is essentially herded together with others like itself, and finds this stimulating.

Since incarnations are natural, when the forming entity is guided to a new body it sets up housekeeping willingly. This is a familiar experience. Burning issues which were present when the entity left its former home, a dead or dying body, come to the fore, and the forming entity is off again on the great exploration that life provides. Being incarnated is far more stimulating and fascinating than the alternative, being dis-incarnate, at this stage, and out-of-body experiences seldom occur unless trauma to the body is extreme. Incarnations gain the entity an acute sense of mission. Think of your current third-density existence and your current mission to determine your orientation, service-to-self or service-to-others. How would a spirit form so decide? What sacrifice is required for service-to-others? The orientation decision of the entity is proved out by life circumstances. In some cases an entity continues to learn through incarnation, even when in a higher density. Incarnations are a learning tool.

Forming Entities
In the beginning, each forming entity is aware only of itself. Self-awareness is a constant state in all life of whatever form, but at the start this is the only state. Forming entities are placed into third-density incarnations. Whether incarnated or not, forming entities first become aware of others based on the effect upon the self. Is the effect pleasant or unpleasant, dominating or acquiescing, desired or resisted? Incarnated or not, social interchange has begun. Sense of the other is also born in this context, not only in awareness of the partner in social interactions, but also by observing others undergoing a similar experience. Within third density there is first self-awareness, second reacting to the presence of others, and lastly the capacity for empathy.

In making the orientation determination, the entity choosing service -to-self is not so much progressing towards this determination as clinging back. They remain most comfortable with self-awareness, and react to others in this context, essentially asking, “What can you do for me?” Interactions between entities change and become more complex during spiritual fourth density, and many entities completing their third-density physical existence are already operating in this mode. Following the development of the capacity for empathy comes the determination to intercede, to rescue, and as an adjunct to this determination the entity begins cooperative efforts, the sum being greater than the parts.

Complex social interchange presents forming entities with situations requiring compromise if goals are to be met, and the need to subjugate might benefit. While the entity leaning toward the service-to-others orientation moves steadily in this direction, the entity leaning toward service-to-self reacts to this greater social complexity with more of the same old reaction, “What's in it for me?” As entities surrounding the emerging service-to-self entity are learning compromise and conciliation, the technique for the self-focused entity to gain more for the self is essentially manipulation. Since groups of emerging service-to-self entity tunes its manipulation skills so as to manipulate groups, too. The orientations, even within third density, set out upon different paths, and polarization increases as they progress.

What does the future hold? The service-to-self entities' spiritual existence is essentially frozen while their intellectual existence progresses. For the service-to-self entities there is even less interplay and manipulation between entities than took place in third density. A rigid hierarchy with rules for everything emerges so that the lessons can proceed. Spiritual wisdom for the service-to-others entities continues to grow and augments rather than detracts from their intellectual progress. Skills in team efforts, where the individual is not required to sacrifice, but can learn and grow while contributing, are honed. Where the focus at the beginning of third density was self-awareness, by the end of fourth density in the service-to-others orientation the focus has expanded to be on group awareness.
