Because of this, we often fall back on a habit of talking about the world that the Internet has wrought—or is in the process of creating—in terms of Utopia or Dystopia, the opposing poles that define Ready Player Onewith its desert of IRL and its plugged-in OASIS. Like the Internet, like all technology, the OASIS has no inherent morality, and is only as good or as bad as the people pushing the buttons. This being a crowd-pleaser, amateur ardor triumphs over faceless efficiency, while here on Earth, such a definitive triumph is far from sure.
What is certain is that technological upheaval has left us surrounded by a glut of accumulated pop effluvia. It is in the very air we breathe and, for a generation of artists, trash is the tool best suited to Community People - Sixteens - Casio the contemporary condition: the medium is the mess.
As pop culture keeps piling up, Ready Player One joins an ever-growing aesthetic that cuts across movies, the Internet, the art world, and everything in between.

The short answer is…. Since I am currently experiencing the limitations of being human, I cannot tell you with certainty what lies beyond this life. No one can. After trying on everything else, it was the only thing that fit all the evidence and left my core at peace.
But my internal guidance suggests that our soul group is less like a tribe bound together by necessity and more like a neighborhood bound together for mutual advantage that mutual advantage being the ability to experience this reality. But if it is administered by self-serving consciousness, that consciousness does what it can to convince you to stay. Looking upon all the possibilities we just explored — and tossing in the possibility of an indifferent administrating consciousness for good measure — what conclusions can we draw The Dumping Ground - Various - Endless Grindstone: The Compilation what we should do when we die?
My current intention is to leave this reality and never come back. It will become quite clear in the next installment on this subject…. It is the world of the celestial spheres, crossed by the soul in its astral body on the The Dumping Ground - Various - Endless Grindstone: The Compilation to being born and after death, and is generally believed to be populated by angels, spirits or other immaterial beings. In the late 19th and early 20th century the term was popularised The Dumping Ground - Various - Endless Grindstone: The Compilation Theosophy and neo-Rosicrucianism.
Among those who have experienced or who believe in the Astral Plane, it is generally assumed that it is a higher realm than the physical world we experience when alive and conscious. It is entirely our creation.
There you will find every creature and vista that any human has ever imagined, so it is a vast and The Dumping Ground - Various - Endless Grindstone: The Compilation place. There are so many ideas on this subject pushing to be expressed that it The Dumping Ground - Various - Endless Grindstone: The Compilation like there are a Come Into My Heart (Basic Mix) - Kenya Travitt - Come Into My Heart hummingbirds flitting about my head — all wanting to land on my keyboard.
So here goes…. It is in the lucid state that we have control of our dreams and 013 - Various - Nallet Tulee, Oletko Valmis ? consciously create in the astral. What the occultists have done is develop techniques to induce the lucid state on demand, so they are able to consciously create within the astral whenever they wish. And since each occult society is of one mind and agenda, its members synchronize their efforts to create beings, structures, and currents of thought within the collective subconscious that advance their aims.
All methods of entry involve either idling or fracturing the conscious mind, thus leaving a vacuum into which the subconscious can flow. Consider these methods of entry…. All of these techniques create a whole or partial gap in the conscious mind, thus allowing the subconscious mind to step forward and fill the gap. All other things, like the earthly reality we are now experiencing, are nothing more than fleeting thoughts in the mind of God just like it is with your own mind, the mind is permanent, but its thoughts are not.
And since consciousness is both the creator and experiencer of all realities, an obvious challenge arises…. How do you project a reality and experience it at the same time? How can a reality hold any mysteries and wonder if you are aware that you are projecting it and know everything that will happen?
In order to have a true, immersive reality experience, it is necessary to separate the consciousness that projects it The Dumping Ground - Various - Endless Grindstone: The Compilation the consciousness that experiences it.
That way, the experiencing consciousness views the reality around it as a mysterious place of wonder. I suspect that it is for this reason that there is a partition between the conscious and subconscious minds. The subconscious mind does the grunt work of projecting realities so the conscious mind can have a convincing experience within them. But this raises another question….
