Yes. The (it's) are referring to the cosmic consciousness. Must shorter to write.
The only things that I learned from that source other than the fact that it was real was that my basic paradigm for religions and life were on the right path and it chastised me to think more demographically. There was more but I was not able to catch it because as I stated, I was crying through the whole episode.
" If that's the case, are you saying that you think 'the cosmic consciousness' is a sentient (i.e. willful) entity of some kind?'.
That's a bummer. Basically, 'the cosmic consciousness', in essence, told you (through speech? Just in internal feeling?) that 'it' is real, and then chastised you to think more demographically. The latter is somewhat confusing - could you better elaborate what you mean by 'chastised'? Did it speak to you in an angry voice? What does 'think more demographically' mean? Did it explicitly say words like 'think more demographically', or are you extrapolating that information from some 'feeling'?
It is definitely sentient and aware.
Wonderful! An actual property of the label 'cosmic consciousness'! Got any more?
In discussing this, and primarily because of the Sudbury information, the thought did come to mind that what I found was not the remnants of those that had passed on. It is possible that what I found was just other conscious and live minds like mine who just happened to be there at that time. I would have no way of knowing this without one of them stating it and that did not happen not even from me.
It's also possible that you suffered a temporary psychotic episode.
It's also possible that you had a cognitive hallucination.
It's also possible that you had an extraordinary emotional event, and you've pieced together a rationalization to fit around that emotional event that is completely decoupled from anything real.
This goes against what I gleaned from my experience but I recognize that what I gleaned was speculation that has yet to be confirmed.
Sure I don't.
"There is a cosmic consciousness that I believe I connected to for a few seconds a few years back when I got the impression of loads of minds! I can't tell you anything about it but I appear to have built a whole philosophy on it - certainly I reference it in every conversation I have on this forum. No, no evidence for any of it at all apart from the tiny 'experience' that I cannot replicate or adequately explain".
No woo, no indeed. Definite science, backed up by evidence. Sorry I got that so wrong.
Is that my words. It does not sound like my pattern or word I usually use?
It's called paraphrasing, though with a particularly sarcastic tone. The tone and the words are different, but is the content
? If so, please elaborate on what Anfauglir has incorrect.
