Group Flow State

World Builders and Collective Consciousness

If we are consciousness that has access to the coherence of individual memory and present awareness in the zero point field, we are the physical interface for space time as it is unfolding.

Death unplugs the body from awareness of the zero point field, but consciousness persists in the quantum.

Death, then, is a transition between states of consciousness.

Mark Wagnon, in our conversation with Langdon Roberts and Jim Shroads, was explaining how consciousness can become aware of other dimensions that are our current reality. However, our senses are not attuned to recognize the frequencies of the wave patterns.

As I understood it, consciousness is the steady state of the universe. There are no waves in consciousness. Rather, consciousness perceives waves and motion through experience.

We compare time to a line and plot events on a timeline. It is a primitive abstraction that distorts our understanding of reality.

We can think of channels of information in the same way we build software that abstracts time as a play head on a VCR that detects and decodes information from a magnetic tape that passes over the surface of the play head at a constant speed.

However, in a flow state, it is possible to experience time as if playback is sped up or slowed down.

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi asks, “What makes a life worth living?” Noting that money cannot make us happy, he looks to those who find pleasure and lasting satisfaction in activities that bring about a state of “flow.”

Our meeting yesterday was about group flow states. Unfortunately, the video recording of that meeting failed to record the audio, capturing only the video.

If we could access the zero point field, theoretically, we could have access to the full resolution of universal experience.

The universe is not only the substrate of life, the ground of being. The universe is the recording device of all of reality in full resolution. We are the play heads of reality.

Together, we weave worlds. Through consciousness, we create worlds by accessing memory and projecting possibilities into the future.

Non-fiction is recorded reality. Fiction is reality that is yet to be. With a multitude of play heads, we are weaving reality as a collective consciousness. God, you could say, is the universe, the book of life. God makes us and we make God through the intimate connection of oneness with the universe. There is no separation.

When we say that God is the ground of being, we are referring to gestalt theory and the figure-ground relationship. We are beings, the figures. God is the substrate on which our beings exist.

We can understand the figure 8 because of the contrast of the shape against the ground of the paper on which it is written or printed. If we rotate the symbol onto its side, the meaning changes to infinity.

We went to the Apple Barn yesterday. Together, we participated in the shared experience of our connection with nature: family, friends, sunshine, weather, trees, fruit, trampolines, swings, ponies, goats, chickens, rabbits, llamas, slides, pedal karts, apple cider, popcorn, picking fruit, roasting corn, walking pathways, eating ice cream.

I was talking with a friend about her conversation with her daughter about life and death. When we die, our bodies become part of the circle of life. Her daughter cried at the thought of dying and becoming food for the trees.

But that is not the end of the story. How do you explain the zero point field to a five-year-old?

My son-in-law shared a video about harmony. Then I shared the experience of flow as I play piano. But this has only been achievable by gaining some measure of mastery with the instrument. I have not yet achieved the level of mastery to which I aspire, but I continue to learn from other musicians through attempts to reconstruct chord progressions by carefully listening to recordings and attempting to imitate the sounds, melodies, harmonies, cadence, and rhythms.

I know I still have much to learn, but I enjoy the process and the feeling of accomplishment that comes when I can play by feeling the music, when I transcend beyond thinking about the mechanics of hitting the right notes at the right time.

We often perform life as an orchestra, playing exactly what has been written and following the leadership of a single conductor.

But life is more like jazz, an improvisation that involves a high level of mastery that allows musicians to listen to each other and respond in the moment to the complex chord progressions, melodies, and harmonies.

The next set of conversations that YouTube suggested was about quantum computing.

We are learning to weave together our experiences through conversation. We are discovering a harmonic resonance as we discover common values and intentions.

What we hope emerges from our growing awareness of our oneness with all of life as a group flow state, the ability to navigate metaphysical gravity.

Light is a form of radiation that moves out from a sphere in all directions. Light casts a shadow, if objects obstruct, reflect, bend, or absorb the light. This can result in distortions of perception.

Gravity casts no shadow. Love is metaphysical gravity.

And when we speak of that which will last, of what remains when all else divides, dies, decays, and disintegrates, we find the human common denominators.

And these three remain: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love.

We are the builders collective. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.

We are World Weavers, but I still resonate with the original name of our group, the World Builders. We are building the kind of world we would want to live in, a world that works for all of life, a world of love.
