Dude’s Maxim 3 amended and Dude’s Maxims 12-17
Some of you will remember that I posted the first installment of Dude’s Maxims last October (https://etandi.wordpress.com/2014/10/11/the-maxims-of-dude-maxim-1-11/ ) . Well it was kind of a joke. He had said so many unusual things to me, my son and Rachel; that I thought I would try to sum some of them up, as a kind of ideological maxims. Well, Dude was aware of this and so shortly after this we had a conversion about what I wrote.
One of the things he did was to amended Maxim 3, in which I originally stated GRAVITY IS A BELIEF.
So here is what he said to me :
“MAXIM 3 : GRAVITY IS A BY PRODUCT OF PERCEPTION.
It is not dissimilar to what you said Bright. Burt by bringing it down to belief, you make it to be an emotional thing. It is not just an emotional thing. It is about the senses. It is about how the whole mind-body perceives and not just about belief. When you think of perception, you think of your physical senses. You do not think of the perception of your heart or your body or your mind and all the processes that take place in your mind. A mind that is located in the body and beyond. And so Bright, perception is all of these things. Your belief is simply one process, one process that occurs in the mind – especially when it is limited to the body. So, if you were to say that gravity does not exist, it is a product of belief (is a belief); you are limiting the idea of what gravity is to a mere belief. But what I am trying to tell you, is that gravity is limited by perception.”
After clarifying that issue, he then went on to give me Maxims 12-17, without context or further comment. Partly because I had to finish and do something else. So here they are :
MAXIM 12 : THIS REALITY YOU TAKE TO BE TRUE, IS A CREATION OF THE MIND.
MAXIM 13 : ALL THAT YOU EXPERIENCE SHAPES YOUR PERCEPTION AND YOUR PERCEPTION SHAPES YOUR REALITY.
MAXIM 14 : HUMANITY WILL NOT EVOLVE, IT WILL ONLY CHANGE.
MAXIM 15 : THE IDEA THAT YOU HAVE OF BEING A BODY, IS LIMITED BY YOUR PERCEPTION. WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR PERCEPTION, YOU CHANGE YOUR BODY.
MAXIM 16 : THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE, THERE ARE SOULS WHO IMAGINE OTHER SOULS. THEIR IMAGINATIONS CREATE REALITIES.
MAXIM 17 : THE IDEA YOU HAVE OF TIME IS BASED ON MEMORY. WHEN YOU REMOVE MEMORY, YOU REMOVE TIME. WHEN YOU CAN SEE WITHOUT TIME, THERE IS NO NEED FOR MEMORY.
I’ve been trying to make sense of a couple of these and some of them seem to confirm things I have experienced with the other ETs – especially the Teal’hia and the Sawronde; who seem to be able to create reality/souls at will.
It seems that everything is about perception. Which, if I had to find a key word to sum up all of the experiments and work in self awareness I’ve been doing for the last decade – that would be the word. Understand the nature of perception and you understand the nature of reality.
These maxims seem to complement Q/A 9 from Dude’s interview rather well but they also seem to contradict other things he has said to me.
As he was outlining these maxims, I had the sense that he was trying to simplify things as much as he could. Some of these ideas complement other teachings I have heard but there’s a couple that really throw a spanner in the works !
