20 - A Second Depth of Awareness
They both think and feel beyond their immediate, physical bodies. Second depth awareness involves a deeper, often intuitive awareness of gravitic resonance on a greater, outward scale (this invariably merges into collectively shared dimension). Via an inward negative cycle that also resonates out into space-time, they feel out into further reaches. This is how some of us can almost instantly know what another is thinking - often far away.
The physics (and communities of mind) that allow this to occur are explained in earlier chapters.
This allows us to walk into a room of people and sense the mood and subject of recent interactions there. It involves a kind of transparency, as does all telepathy.
* Please try it, if you can. In most cases it can only improve your life.
In other words, other people can know your thoughts.
Initially, this may seem awkward among sexuals, but among non-sexuals it’s much less so. Transparency of the sort takes a little getting used to. Many of the lies and misconceptions that tangle up in a mind wither away as a result (a saving grace, in itself). A man who spends too much time looking a woman up and down may find that she turns warily and looks in his direction. In second depth societies, a man who wants power for criminal reasons can be detected. The lies of a given regime and its crimes can all be known by any of the people.
Over time, second depth awareness evolves into higher order(s) of extra awareness, which some advanced hyperversals and community of mind exemplify. There are all-important, if not phenomenal understandings and dynamics that can only be known through such awareness and equality.
The difference between community of mind and an individual is analogous to the difference between an individual and a few brain cells.
When humans start to interact and probe within second depth awareness, the same advanced community tries, in various ways, to assure that pre-existing, non-violent conventions are understood.
As we’ve seen with hyperversals, this meeting of minds can be touchy at times, yet, in overall terms, should lead to mutually more evolved continuities. Among aliens, second depth awareness is considered as necessary as a child’s ability to de-center (to realize that he/she is not the center of everything).
Mack wrote that Catherine,
Sometimes, humans note a distant, if not patronizing alien attitude toward the human condition.
For example, Verdant-abetting “three ellipticals” hyperversals sometimes try to fob off a superficial image of themselves, at face value. That isn’t how they see themselves, of course, but given the ghastly ironies in the Verdant strategy, they find it convenient to pose themselves that way to humans. For humans, the sheer presumption of such aliens can be a problem.
Hyperversals of the sort tend to think that everything is different after the hyperversals. Moreover, they may try to pre-empt other structures and communications networks in this entire multi-galaxy vicinity.
Meanwhile, recently evolved e.t.'s can see what the future holds: a
stark need to conserve, prevent conflict, and reduce population in
galaxies like the Milky Way and Andromeda because we will merge,
forming a large, hot and marginally less hospitable elliptical
galaxy. It's either do or die in such cases but recently evolved
e.t.'s appear to know that.
At times, “three ellipticals” hyperversals’ attitudes suggest that if humans proceed from more equalitarian, ecological considerations, we’ll do all right. However, at times some of them flip that attitude and act as though the fix is in and millions of humans will die, due to the Verdant incursion. We’ve heard three ellipticals hypers say the Verdant spectacle is simply a variation on a theme because humans would otherwise have experienced an intervention by one group or another.
Hyperversals of the sort suggest that humans lack perspective regarding such matters. Keep in mind that hyperversals live long and have seen long histories of brutality here, and elsewhere.
They assume that one way or another, we’ll be compelled to change.
