    It is the stuff of Source, Will, and Consciousness.

     It is undetectable only if you are asleep.

     It is the color picture you see/her/feel around you and it is
the stuff of your self awareness.

     It is the stuff of your dreams.

     The world is a projected hologram.  The hologram is real,
but the implied external world of space matter energy and time is not.

     Surely you jest?  You have no evidence of the existance of the external
world at all let alone electro chemical processes.    The entire external
picture is a dream.  Prove it is not.  I can prove it is, but it takes
some doing, and usually involves getting out of your body which would
be impossible if you WERE a body.

     People who have contempt such as you express about those who
recognize their past track and Immortality are sick.

    You delude yourself about ALL VERIFIABLE EXPERIMENTS.

    No one is asking you to BELIEVE anything about your Immortality.
One is asking you to consider how you might have hidden it from
yourself and why.  Also to consider the enormity of the pain this
engendered on you.

     To abhor death is quite sane.  You are making a virtue out of
a perceived ncecessity.  You think you are mortal so you have chosen
to love it.  I REMEMBER who I am and some of were I was.  YOur
certainty of death can not take away my direct perception of my
past 20 trillion years.  You can call it delusion, but you can not
prove it to that it is delusion, and I have no interest in proving
to you that it is not.  In the mean while you face the grave and
I don't.

     That does not make better than you, but it does make me happier.

     Also more powerful, as I would have had to contact the impulse in
me that caused me to make myself mortal in the first place, the impulse
towards macabre humor I call Majesty.

     Power stems from operating majesty.

     I CHOSE to believe I was MORTAL.  Read it right.  Re operation of this
results in DIRECT MEMORY of have chosen to be MORTAL.  Since this happened
upwards of a few million years ago, it is clear I have been around for
a long time.

     You are a very stupid person.  As you have been unable to even
understand what I have been saying all along, you problems with it
are unworthy of further clarification.

     I demonstrate power to no one.

     By getting people to practice believing that they are MORTAL, they
will soon come to REMEMBER when they first chose to believe they
were MORTAL.   It will be EVIDENT to them at that point that they
are IMMORTAL.

     I have never said anyone should chose to believe they are IMMORTAL
and will thus become so.  It is outrageous that you should even pick
up that inmplication from anything I have said and if you wish to post
further on this list I suggest that you turn you brain on before
you put your mouth in gear.

     People who chose to believe in Immortality because they are afraid
of Mortality are losers.  People who chose to believe in Mortality because
they are afraid of Immortality are losers.

     People who chose to believe in Mortality because they are afraid
of Mortality are winners.  And soon come to recover their Immortality
which was there all along.

     Get it right before you criticize with your putrid mentality.

     You can die of chagrin.   Those who deny this are always
the first to do so.

     It is not a problem of LEARNING.  It is a problem if CHOSING to be
DUMB for FUN.  Scary fun.

    Yes indeed.  You can not prove I am mortal, yet you yap merrily along
about your false certainties.  I can on the other hand prove to myself
I am Immortal and so are you.  I can not prove it to you, because
frakly I can not even prove to myself that you exist.

    You might just be my hallucination along with the other jokers
on ADORE-L who make similar noises.

    Nor can I prove to you that I exist.  I could be YOUR dream.

    Thus proving things about consciousness is best done to oneself.

    However if I could get YOU to remember YOUR past track and what
you did and WHY then you would have some serious evidence that you
were Immortal.

     But I can only show you your Immortality in YOU, I can not show
you anything about me that would convince you.

    The posting on fractals was originally written for Frac-L way WAY back
when it ws new and before ADORE-L was even conceived.  I never sent it
to FRAC-L because I found FRAC-L was populated by Mortal jerks.  A lot
of good people too, but mainly the rock and mud crowd.  That forum
is for serious science of the physcial universe.  Most of them have
not figured out they are conscious yet, and so would not take kindly
to being woken up.

    I have no such responsibility, and only fools think me a fool.

     I am not a MASTER.  I am an APPREHENTICE to Beings FAR greater
than I could ever hope to be.

     However you are right about the scorpions.  The MASTER can however
chose to let them drown.  He is a MASTER of RESPECT and he can RESPECT
their drowning too.
