Billions of folks through the ages have desired immortality. The idea of having life continue on forever is nearly universal as far as men and women are concerned. Billions more simply seek to preserve youth for as long as possible. They purchase creams, ointments, hormones and vitamins in the quest to fight the clock. In the end, time always wins. The wrinkles and grey hair accumulate and even the richest movie stars and tycoons can't buy youth.
An observant and intelligent person would realize that youth can't be bought. What's more they would learn not to bias the symptoms of aging, as these will only be attracted to one, much like iron filings to a magnet, and aging will be sped up by such negative biases.
Yet we live in a culture which obsesses about youth. Sexualization of girls now starts at age 8 or 9 and is fully made manifest by the time they are 10 or 11. The corporate empire realizes that the best consumer is the one who is still completely immature and can be swayed by the simplest psychologically exploitive commercial.
How many really lame toys have been sold by a hype commercial showing kids excitedly racing to play with said lame toy? Such commercials are always short. Anything more than twenty seconds and the kids might realize it's not that exciting at all, and is, in fact, quite lame. Such toys are bought and played with for about the same amount of time as the commercial.
But the exploitation stuff has been covered sufficiently in other blog entries. Today's topic is immortality.
Being an immortal requires a completely different lifestyle. Immortals don't follow trends. They've seen civilizations come and go and watched as people make the same mistakes, live with a plethora of inferiority complexes and then lash out at the world around them. The entire human ego and the many wars, conflicts and violence is mute testimony to this process of man constantly compensating for feelings of inferiority/insecurity.
Walk past someone who has nicer clothes and better grooming? Call them a metrosexual! Someone is in the public eye? Judge them! Your girlfriend/boyfriend breaks up with you? They must be gay!(or straight?!) An endless litany of defense mechanisms are employed hundreds of times a day by most humans - and almost no one is aware of this or why they do it. The constant little cuts into one's ego occur all day long. It truly takes the mind of an immortal to be on complete equilibrium in all circumstances and to be free of an ego. There is no such thing as a healthy ego - a healthy ego simply means one is still ruled by feelings of inferiority/superiority and a desire to compensate for them.
That's a big no-no for an immortal. You can't live forever and still be trapped in the tiny emotional roller-coaster of the material world. Naturally, this would be a big disappointment for most who seek immortality. Not being able to lord it over others or exploit one's position or knowledge seems to spoil the whole goal of being immortal.
Being an immortal means living by a certain code; a constant awareness of the inflexible principles of energy, regeneration, frequency-relationship, feedback, relativity, etc. Yes, every action is judged by this code and consciousness tallies up the relative positive/negative ratio of such an action in comparison to stored structures, experiences and values. Doing something willfully negative carries greater feedback when one knows better. Call someone a name when you are sixteen and you will still be receiving regenerated feedback from this ill-conceived action well into your seventies - or until you put such a biased cycle of regenerating energy on equilibrium again.
Immortals age, only slower. When one doesn't bias or fear aging, at thirty you'll look twenty and at eighty you'll look sixty or perhaps even fifty. However, this will not be that important to you, because you will have lost the fear and insecurity that sponsors such obsession with youth. You will not envy the young, nor pity the old - you will be on complete equilibrium and realize that life is simply a set of cycles regenerating, re-manifesting and growing more complex.
Immortality means work. You don't coast through lives. Your mind is constantly analyzing, balancing and ironing out ALL things that come into your dominion. And this process never ends. As your mentality develops the challenges and biases one faces grow in equal proportion.
Being human means living life controlled and guided by emotions and material desires. Being immortal means forsaking emotions and replacing material desires with longer lasting, immortal desires; love, caring, sharing, learning, etcetera.
In the film the Highlander, starring Christopher Lambert, and which dates to 1985, the story involves immortals killing each other so as to rule humanity. Such a film captures the escapist fantasy many folks have about immortality/invulnerability. Just as man has for many millennia given his gods human vicissitudes, so does he give his vision of immortals the same traits and petty desires spawned by insecurity. And what's more the movie's message "there can be only one" is exactly the opposite of the truth. In truth, there are an infinite number of immortals, most of which have eons upon eons ago long since graduated from material/atomic planes of existence.
No, with immortality does not come a desire to rule others or lord over others on some throne somewhere. Immortality comes with great peace of mind and understanding. The realization that ALL souls are your brothers and sisters and are a vital part of the infinite universe, makes any efforts or machinations against them the equivalent of beating oneself in the face.
This sense of separation, isolation and loneliness is another mirage that fades away. We are all integral components of the universe. Your life and mine are interconnected, even thought the connections may seem only tangential and distant, this too is an illusion. The past/present/future are one collective whole and nothing can be added or taken away without it influencing this whole.
Oh, and immortality means death - lots and lots of it. Each day has a sunrise and a sunset, just as each life has a birth and a death. Yet this is all illusion. The sun constantly shines and life never ceases. Once your perspective broadens these changes, the life cycles, etc. all make perfect sense and possess perfect purpose.
As an immortal, you will understand all this written here today and so much more - you'll have to.
And you'll be seeing me around the multiverse forever.

Sometimes I feel like Clark Kent. Every now and then I reveal that I'm not exactly human and I end up freaking folks out.
Today we're going to discuss biases. It's very important and will change your life just as much, or more than those who are caught up in religion or "The Secret" or any other escape mechanism that is handy.
"The Secret" presents just another "think and grow rich" fantasy. You can't really control life like that and the selfish motivations are actually counter-productive. Sure you can think about getting rich - but your positive overbias on wherewithal is just as likely to draw poverty unto you as riches.
What you can control is your reaction to everything around you. By learning to see things in balance, you go through life without the swings of highs and lows. This in turn, builds a consciousness that more truly mirrors the universe. The universe doesn't personalize or bias anything.
Every waveform that's off-equilibrium, either to a positive or negative bias will draw certain experiences unto you. Our lives are the byproduct of all these waveforms and new ones we compound into them.
The goal of life is not to be rich, be famous or powerful - but rather to build a balanced and expanded consciousness. Sure it sounds new-agey, but in truth our minds are us - the body is just a shell. By experiencing and mastering more and more things and pushing our minds to conceive greater and larger concepts, we become more infinite - and this in turn will place us in environments suitable to our continued growth - and which will test us on what we have already learned.
And while it seems like such would have to be "designed" by some greater power - it really is just the natural function of energy. No gods ensure "eternal life", just understanding how the universe functions will make "eternal life" a reality.
Instead of chanting or prayer - understanding simple wave propagation is infinitely more useful. Understanding that balanced waves propagate most efficiently and can traverse greater distances and that our consciousness is truly nothing but oscillating wave forms is the key.
By balancing the waves that comprise our consciousness and making sure any new ones added get balanced as well, this is the way to "eternal life" and ever greater "heavens".
Billions of Christians are planning to go to heaven after they die. The place is merely a vaguely imagined paradise that promises to be free of all the "bad" things in life.
How unfactual and unrealistic such a concept is! Anyone with a smattering of common sense can see that bad/good are relative propositions and what's more, that good emerges from the bad and vice-versa!
And this is what "The Secret" misses entirely as well - that bad experiences, suffering, pain, poverty, etcetera are just as good as they are evil!
The true secret lies in realizing this obvious fact - that ALL things, ALL experiences and EVERYTHING one does in life is neither positive or negative - neither good or evil!
How many folks go around biasing everything?
"This is good, that is bad - these folks are good - these folks are bad."
All these biases are not held by the universe. The universe doesn't say "Hitler you're a bad man! You must be punished!" The universe is absolutely oblivious. It's up to Hitler himself to discover the perils of his imbalanced consciousness. He already had his eyes opened to this feedback of his biases by 1944.
We all are in the same boat as Hitler. We all carry these imbalanced thoughts and thinking processes which are filled with extreme biases.
The more imbalanced our minds are - the more likely we are to be perceived as either "evil" or "good" by those around us.
There is no good or evil - only biased waveforms and other waves which react to these waves.
How many people go through life realizing this? Not many. Although almost everyone is intuitively aware that this is the case. They constantly are forced to bring out the good in that which they perceive as bad. And the good things always reveal their 'bad' payloads forcing the realization that all the good things one desires aren't so great after all.
Folks chide me for being robot-like or unfeeling. This is just the perceived lack of overwhelming biases. Biases are strongly maintained illusions, based upon a lack of information - the result of one-sided thinking.
Emotions are much the same. Hate, fear, sadness are all the manifestations of imbalanced thinking processes. Eventually, everyone must leave their favorite emotion - insecurity - behind.
Yes, some folks die and wonder how they can be the only ones who are not feeling overwhelming insecurity, fear and sadness. Others go into the "beyond" with great fear and insecurity.
We all rationalize our insecurities and our fears. They have become prized possessions and depending on how often we use them, our consciousness and minds become veritable mine-fields of insecurity and emotion.
And where do these emotions, fears and insecurities get their origin?
Yep, you guessed it - biases!
So the simple secret to life is right in front of everyone's eyes: Master your biases - don't let them master you.
Biases can never disappear entirely, because every NEW experience will always at first be imbalanced and biased by your consciousness before it is mastered. However, by having this 'secret' under one's belt - one knows exactly what do when one finds oneself caught up in some strong biases.
That's the difference.
"The Secret" only reinforces all these false goals, and further ensnares folks into a web of biases to imprison them.
Using a knowledge of energy and the way energy interacts, can provide one with the key to a more productive, balanced life - a life more free of fear and insecurity - and at the same time become more efficient at processing data and conceiving ever larger concepts and compounding their consciousness in a manner that ensures its growth and propagation.
For folks who want a little primer on the universe and time, here's a little graphic. It explains how the universe is just pure energy and can be broken down into wave forms with frequency:
Energy=Waveforms with frequency
Universe=Waveforms with frequency
Time/space=local mass frequencies and associated fields
Energy=Waveforms with frequency
Universe=Waveforms with frequency
Time/space=local mass frequencies and associated fields
Universe & You: relate solely via waveforms with frequency.
In a nutshell it means your life and your travels through time/space are solely based upon frequency relationship. Nothing else. Not emotion. Not logic. Not fate. In this case your consciousness and body oscillate with the world/universe around you and all your experiences are the sum of these very precise, scientific oscillations
That's all for today. It's time for me to put on my bumbling Kent act for Lois again, and ask her what day it is and how a bumblebee flies.
