A professor at Princeton has devised a computer gadget to measure
collective consciousness --- The Collective Consciousness Project.
This meachine measures collective responses [with] cells in various
parts of the world. On Diana's funeral, this machine registered
a phenomenal emotional surge; so too did it register 9/11. Four
hours before the tsunamis hit the coast of Sri Lanka [in 2004-2005]
the machine registered a huge emotional surge. Perhaps at a soul
level, we already knew of the pending disaster. (G, via email)

Web Bot Project and Global Consciousness Project make predictions
based on collective beliefs. Sometimes these beliefs manage to
come into being, and sometimes they just evaporate - which is
why it's so hard to make specific predictions. When a portion
of the collective believes something will happen, like apocalypse
in 2012, there's always another portion of the collective that
doesn't. This is why there's always free will and karmic wiggle
room built into karmic fate.
To see the
most probable futures, step back from time into timelessness.
Then imagine all potentiality looking like a spiraling glob of
gelatinous chia seeds. At any point you can stick your fingers
in it and mix the seeds all together, or string the seeds out
in a line, or make your initials out of it. The karmic seeds are
still there, but they're now arranged in a different form.
Now - The
collective is sticking its seven billion sets of human fingers
(and its countless plant/animal fingers) into an infinitely vast
globule of karmic chia seeds. What emerges is true democracy:
infinite numbers of creations existing at once in huge complicated
parallel and concurrent universes. The Global Consciousness Project
simply scans the seed-containing mental contents and subconscious
desires of people on the internet, which is only a subatomic fraction
of the sum total of all universal thought forms on all planets
and beyond. Predictions the GCP makes aren't necessarily accurate
(dependent as they are on the jumpy human mind), but they are
When we die, do we die into an astrology sign? Is that why some
people seem to delay their deaths to time entry into the astral?

depends on how many parallel selves someone has going at the moment
of death. One dying parallel might aim its karmic arrow at a future
astrology chart, but the remaining parallels might continue to
live. If Parallel One is reborn, it becomes what's called a Concurrent.
As the remaining parallels die and recombine on the astral, even-tually
the reincarnation schedule of karmic tendencies - portrayed in
the new chart - starts to look more clear. The new astrology chart
will show a South Node that describes in shorthand the issues
and events around the prior parallels. Does our goal-driven ego
have control over any of this? No. Our schedules are managed by
We've been watching a little of The
Civil War. Do you have a read on Stonewall Jackson and Robert
E. Lee? I was paging through Celebrities...It was interesting
to notice that Custer is an Artisan/Warrior...and U.S. Grant is
a Warrior/Artisan. Are they essence twins, by chance? (Nothing's
by chance, I know!) (L, via
email) (edited for length)
far as I can tell from paintings of Thomas (Stonewall) Jackson,
he was an Artisan with Goal of Submission in the midst of a Leadership
Karmic Sequence. Normally we don't see Artisans doing military
leadership, but everybody does a Leadership Sequence from time
to time; also, he has a King essence twin and Warrior casting.
E. Lee (also oddly enough for a soldier) appears to be a Mature
Scholar in the Michael system. He was a highly-regarded military
leader due to his lifetime trajectory of studying history and
politics, and he was also in a Leadership Sequence.
when determining someone's Role it's usually best to look at their
eyes --- and Lee has the flat-goggle-like eyes of a Scholar. He
almost looks like he'd be more comfortable giving a university
lecture on medical forensics than leading thousands of soldiers
in a fight to save his homeland. He was pulled into the Civil
War due to his somewhat involuntary participation in a Working
Group that was mostly discarnate, focused on figuring out whether
it's okay or not to own other people. He was personally opposed
to slavery, and his North Node in Sagittarius led him toward the
end of his life into a position as President of Washington College.
Custer was definitely an Artisan, as you pointed out. His solid
Warrior essence twin's energy bled through his own non-soldier-like
Artisan personality; and that, along with his Baby Soul viewpoint,
made him think fighting for his own political interests was a
good idea. He was at the highly karmic 6th level of his Soul Age,
very efficiently creating karma with a nation of Native Americans.
His outrageous Artisan creativity came through in his manner of
wearing his military hat cocked at a jaunty angle.
Grant was a Warrior indeed, with a lot of Artisan energy bleeding
through; however, he and Custer are not essence twins.
you look closely at the photos of Lee and Grant, you'll see suffering
in their eyes: a profound effect of war.
In Advaita [nonduality], it is stated there is an endless wheel
of birth and death. This seems different from the Michael Teachings,
[where] a fragment completes the grand cycle and reunites with
the Tao. How is it possible to be identified as an individual
soul again? How then to be sure that I had two previous grand
cycles on this planet and one on another? (W, via email) (edited
of yourself as Harry Potter, and your various lifetimes as Harry
Potter movies. Think of your grand cycle as the complete edition
of all Harry Potter movies. That is False Personality going through
a cycle of lifetimes. Now think of yourself as J. K. Rowling,
and the books "you" write
as reflections of your own tendencies, wishes and dreams. That
is your Essence. When Essence has things to do, it creates illusory
characters that resemble itself. When Essence is done, it stops
creating characters that resemble itself. Because Essence is the
author of you, it retains full authorship rights. It can stop
creating you or recreate you at its pleasure. "It" is
what you came from, and "it" is your guardian, your
guide, your Home, your True Being and your Self. It is so profoundly
simple that it is the same Source of everything - No difference,
no "thing." When all the Harry Potter movies have been
made, and all the Harry Potter books have been written, where
does Harry Potter go? Nowhere. He is merely a collection of Harry
Potter-like thoughts that exist in availability. Anytime J. K.
Rowling wants to resurrect Harry Potter, she can put him back
on the wheel - on another planet, as a girl, as an old man, a
sentient lion or a Transcendental Soul. She can have him dissolve
into infinity then appear again in a 1st level Infant prequel.
She can play around with time and reality all she wants. That's
Rather than ask others if you've lived on another planet, do your
own research, and be honest. If it is true, something inside you
will know it. If it isn't true, then you can always "write"
yourself there. Thanks for your question.
