This is a metaphor that may help one visualization the configuration of this reality.
What we experience is similar to a projection system. It can be described relative to the large, “overhead” projector systems that are placed on a rolling cart. This also works with a reel to reel projection system, like in movie theaters.
In this metaphor, the projection device is the physical object which acts as the construct to support everything needed to project the information. The glass display is covered with slides that are filled with information written or drawn by the “teacher”. The power comes from a tube/channel that is filled with electricity and connected to a plug in the wall where there is infrastructure connecting to a grid and relay station. This is synonymous with a “world of energy”.
The light that is shone up through the display and the slides (or horizontally through each frame on the movie reel as it turns) is then projected outward onto a display that is usually a hanging screen that is a solid color to easily show contrast and details.
The metaphor is as follows: the electrical energy from the wall and grid is the ‘source’ energy or pure spirit that is flowing from the “world of spirit”. This is the raw spiritual energy that ‘lives’ through the body and the body experiences life as long as this energy is present.
The slides or the movie reel contains information that is ‘produced’, by design (with foresight of the resulting experience) by a “teacher” who is presenting a lesson to those in the classroom. The lessons is always about the true nature of the self.
The projector device itself, the light bulb, the mirrors, the frame, that is the physical biological construct which allows the whole process to occur. This is the physical body and brain.
The mind is the immaterial information, the drawings, equations, writings, or scenes that are expressed as a result of the soul information projected from each slide. This information is the immaterial mind, the connection between the body and the realm of the soul. The slides themselves contain the information that the self is identifying through on the projection while simultaneously containing information relative to the identity of the teacher designing or teaching the lesson. This is the soul energy, the blueprint, the information that pours through. The changing of these slides is actually the perception of time. The rotation of the movie reel, or the changing of the slides as the teacher moves on with each sub-lesson, creates the sensation of time. There is no actual change, no actual motion, it is about the angle of perspective and the process that takes place outside of the “projected realm”.
The screen across the room hanging from the ceiling or the wall, that is this physical realm. It is a two-dimensional surface that acts as a surface area for the projections to form and as we know these projections can easily give the illusion of three-dimensional space and the 3.5 dimensional organization of information of a “movie” or life.
While present here in this plane, we disconnect from the view of the teacher who is designing the slides, scene by scene, one lesson plan at a time with a foreknowledge of how it will play out. The characters on the screen, they believe that their existence is solidified on that screens, that it begins and ends there. This is the illusion.
