How Universes Workby Tanaath on 12/28/15
We live in a multiverse; a lot of people
have heard this statement and have a general understanding of what this means.
But sometimes the whole concept of what is a universe is can be
confusing. Since just about everything I'll talk about in the posts after this
require at least a general understanding of what a universe is and how it
works, and how they relate to other universes, and the general structure of
existence, I need to address it here, to at least make an attempt to get
everyone on the same page.
What is a universe? A universe is a number
of things simultaneously. I'm going to address each one point by point.
A universe is a holographic projection of
a fractal – note, in popular culture a holographic
projection is often portrayed as an illusionary image of something that is
fundamentally not real, a universe holograph is very very 'real' in every sense
of the word. Just because something is a holograph doesn't mean it isn't real.
We use holographs and holograms in order to make 3D-like images on 2D spaces or
projected into our 3D world. A holograph in its essence is the projection of
light to create something, and in the case of a universe, it is the
projection of light to create a very complex, very real, living fractal.
This, of course, requires that we define
what a fractal is. A fractal is an infinitely repeating, self-similar pattern.
The Fractal Foundation http://fractalfoundation.org/resources/what-are-fractals/
provides a brief description and a few examples (although the pyramidal fractal
is problematic, but we’ll get to that in a few posts). When you're dealing with
fractals in a 2D environment such as on a computer screen, you can make very
very beautiful, intricate designs with fractals. The neat thing about fractals
is that when the designs are repeated, patterns begin to form that actually
look like things that exist in real life – plants, animals, geological
features, cosmological features, etc... This is no accident. All life is based
on fractals, because the universe is a giant, multidimensional, intricate
fractal. And within that fractal is contained the possibility for just about everything
you can imagine. Examining a fractal at a given iteration point in its context
will allow you to see what the expression of that fractal looks like.
Different levels of iteration will show different aspects of the pattern in
their expressions. This is what we mean when we talk about a fractal
A universe is infinite. This means that there is no actual limit to what it can contain.
It goes on 'forever'. (Note, infinities can actually be different sizes. If you
want more explanation on that notion, and don't mind the math, check this out https://www.sciencenews.org/article/small-infinity-big-infinity.)
And, as long as a universe is alive, it's growing. Not expanding, growing.
New matter is being created, new energy is being added, new souls are born and
expressed for the very first time. Some of it does get recycled, but there is
new being added all the time. As long as the universe remains attached to the
Tree of Life (more on that below), the universe will be growing.
The insides of a universe occupies actual
space... and plenty of theoretical space as well. A
universe has several spatial components, D-space, spirit realms, 'potential'
space, and unexpressed possibility. D-space (my term for it) is the actual
'physical' space that we occupy, not only in the 3rd dimension but
in other densities. D-space is what we usually mean when we talk about 'the
universe' in a cosmic sense. D-space contains your planets, suns, solar
systems, cosmic debris, nebulae and solar breeding grounds, galaxies, black
holes, galactic superclusters, and the like. Basically, all the 'Point A to
Point B' stuff is in D-space. D-space exists in all dimensions in a given
universe, from its lowest dimensional point to its highest, in our case,
dimensions 1 through 12 (we have 12 'dimensions' or densities of
matter/consciousness in our particular universe, though it appears there might
be a 13th one growing).
D-space conforms to mathematical dimensions
(as opposed to densities of matter/consciousness that are often called
dimensions, both by me and others – densities are overlapping layers within
D-space) such as length, width, height, space, mass, time, etc.; you can
navigate D-space in a rational fashion if you have the means (i.e., you can
travel down the road to a destination, you can fly across the skies, you can
sail across bodies of water, you can fly between celestial bodies, use portals,
gateways, and space-bending tech to navigate vast interstellar distances, and
so on). Things that exist in D-space in one dimension/density will exist in
other dimensions, they just might be expressed differently. For
instance, Jupiter in our 3rd dimension is an uninhabitable gas
giant. In dimensions farther up the fractal iteration (because this is an
aspect of the fractal as well), Jupiter is not a gas giant but a rocky planet
capable of supporting life. In some of the other dimensions, Earth is
uninhabitable – but there is still an Earth placeholder of some sort. This is
just an example.
D-space tends to be pretty rational,
predictable and 'real'. Things generally act and move according to
understandable and predictable 'laws of nature' or constants. These are things
that can be expressed mathematically, for the most part. While there are
pockets of places where things like universal constants seem to take a
vacation, these are mostly just eddies in the great flow of the universe – areas
where some exception or another encounters another exception and makes an
exceptional spot, either for a short period of time or a long one. Within a
particular density layer or dimension, D-space acts in pretty straightforward
ways. The nature of transition between dimensions or layers means that there
will be some funky stuff going on, particularly from the perspective of the
layer below, but again, it is usually something that can be explained
rationally once enough knowledge of the process is obtained.
In addition to D-space, a universe has
spirit realms. Spirit realms can be described as being 'at 90 degrees to
D-space', because they don't correspond to rational, physical locations. Spirit
realms can be any size, from little pocket realms to vast, infinite expanses.
They can be created or natural. They have their own constants and their own
physical 'laws' (think of these as mathematical laws and conditions of
existence, not rules imposed by a being, though some spirit realms have those
as well). They may or may not be connected to other spirit realms or the
D-space portion of the universe, and this connection may or may not be
temporary or constant. Navigating spirit realms is a crapshoot. To get from
Point A to Point B in D-Space, like I said above, you pretty much travel in a
rational fashion. To get from Point A to Point B in spirit realms may involve a
travel path like something out of Alice in Wonderland or getting into Narnia –
enter an old wardrobe in one realm and come out of someone's fireplace in
another, walk to the corner store and step in the bathroom to arrive at yet
another realm, where you fall out of the sky and into a whirlpool which takes
you to yet another realm, where you materialize in a desert, take three steps
towards the mirage and one step backwards to arrive at your intended
destination... and this is assuming that those spirit realms have linked points
and the paths are all working they way they're supposed to.
Spirit realms can be owned and created by
beings. Natural spirit realms aren't owned by anyone, and may have native
lifeforms and inhabitants, such as the fae realms. Artificial spirit realms are
owned by someone or created by someone. Artificial spirit realms have their own
sets of laws which dictate what things can and can't happen – and may or may
not have rules as mentioned above. Natural realms may have very
different natural laws from what D-space does, but they are rarely
self-conflicting – a realm with conflicting laws can exist but must gain or
obtain energy in order to artificially maintain its own coherency. Artificial
realms are the only things that meet that requirement, because natural realms
will generally 'wink out' if there's nothing powering them. So an artificial
realm (such as the Silver Legion's headquarters realm) requires an input of
energy in order to maintain a contradictory state. (The Silver Legion's realm
is mostly self-sustaining, but we have reservoirs of power for those occasions
when we need to make the place very illogical, and for illogical
infrastructure, such as our arena systems.)
Spirit realms connect to each other,
sometimes these are deliberately created and other times natural paths occur.
Spirit realms can also have intersection points with D-space. There are some
popular religious and new age concepts that are based on spirit realms. Heaven
and Hell are spirit realms (and there are multiple versions of these). The
Astral Plane is a spirit realm, as are the two layers of spirit realm planes
between Earth and the outer edges of the Astral plane – the Etheric plane and
the Dreamlands. One of the ways to 'get' to any given spirit realm from this planet is to go through the Astral
plane as a kind of intermediary zone. It can even be used to access other
dimensional layers in D-space.
'Potential' space is a tricky concept. A
universe contains all potentials and all possibilities. Sometimes we like to
talk about alternate universes and alternate timelines where everything is like
here, but with a little (or huge) difference here and there. This is
'potential' space. It exists because it has to, and it has to exist because
all variables of a given existence must be explored, but is generally not
accessible to us in a full experiential fashion. There are people who can view
or travel between our experienced reality and other realities, but this is
generally not a common trait. Changes made in alternate timelines and alternate
universes won't affect our experiential reality. These are separate realities
that exist because they have to, we can't necessarily use them (though people
do attempt to); nevertheless they make up a very large proportion of a
Finally, a universe contains unexpressed
possibility. These are all the things that have not yet been expressed within a
universe – they 'haven't happened yet', or they're part of an unresolvable
paradox where one part is currently in expression in the active universe. This
is all the stuff that 'could be' but isn't yet or isn't currently possible
given current circumstances.
A universe is both creation and creator. A universe is alive, and a universe is conscious (and is
consciousness). A universe is made up of a Source creating itself. All of
those things I mentioned above – all the space, matter, potential and possible
things, are part of that creation and are part of the Source. The Source is the
consciousness of a universe, and it is the substance of the universe, and it is
the energy of a universe. All matter within a universe is projected from the
Source of that universe. All beings within a universe are consciousnesses
projected from that Source. Non-native beings entering into a universe have
the option of becoming expressions of that Source as well and becoming
naturalized. It has been popularly described that existence is Source exploring
itself. This is pretty much true. A universe is a Source's attempt to explore
and experience itself to the fullest extent possible. In that way, a universe
is very much a living thing. The notion of consciousness – of awareness,
thought, subjective and objective experience – cannot be divorced from that. We
are consciousness, and we, as individual consciousnesses, all spring from
Universes are alive. They are born, and they
can die. Universe death occurs when the consciousnesses that make up a universe
disconnect from the consciousnesses of the Source creator of the universe and
the bond between the Source and the creation is broken, and the attachment to
the Tree of Life is severed. Universes can also collapse due to contradictory
natural constants – we’ll get more into that later.
There are many other living universes,
and they are all attached to a great Tree of Life.
The Tree of Life is an infinite fractal of existence, in which each and every
point of the fractilic expression is a universe (and no, it's not the same
thing that is presented by Kabbalah, that's something different entirely).
Every universe attached to the Tree was once a being, a person, a soul in a
universe itself, that went down the spiritual evolution path of becoming an
'experience provider' rather than an 'experiencer'. The Tree itself is alive
and conscious, but that is not a
unified consciousness – there is no one
Source of the Tree. No one owns or is responsible for all of
existence, and no one rules. Period.
When a being wishes to become a universe,
they first start out by being an experience provider in other ways. They may
become a planetary consciousness, or a solar consciousness, or galactic
consciousness, etc. They dip their toes in it, so to speak. If they like it,
they spend many existences learning about being an experience provider before
they are finally able to become a Source and form a new leaf on the tree. When
they become a new leaf on the tree (a newborn universe), they receive a copy of
the base fractal of existence from the universe in which they first became an
experience provider. They are then able to modify that fractal in order to
explore themselves as a universe. Every universe is unique; every universe is
There are a few catches to becoming a
Source/universe. When a Source becomes a universe,
there's a few strings attached. The consciousnesses that will be expressed as
beings within the universe are technically creations of that Source, but they
are also present in other forms in other universes simultaneously. You could
say there is a mutualistic relationship between a Source and the
consciousnesses that become the experiencers within a universe – they agree to
become part of the Source and help the Source explore itself by living and
having experiences provided by the unique lens of that Source's expression of
the fractal of existence. The Source thus creates that version of them.
In the meantime, they do that Source the favour of playing in that Source's
One of the requirements of becoming a Source
and thus a universe is the agreement to respect the free will of experiencing
beings. Because Sources must respect the free will of beings playing in their
playgrounds, it is not able or permitted to simultaneously be a singular
exceptional differentiated consciousness within itself, separate from the rest
of itself – it cannot rule itself like a king. All conscious
beings that a Source creates must be created free and equal and the Source
cannot personify within itself as a special ruler over its creation. Nor can
it appoint special beings to enact a tyrannical will that violates the free
will of the rest of the beings for its ego-benefit (more on this in a later
post). These are the requirements that allows the Source to remain attached to
the Tree of Life and to be able to draw upon the very large infinity of
possibility contained by the Tree – that is, stay alive and keep growing.
Without that attachment, a Source no longer has the capacity of infinite
energy/soul/matter generation, because at that point it has become a tyranny
and the Tree will not tolerate a tyranny without end to be fed by
If a Source really wants to do either one or both of those two things, it can still have a chance to do so, but it must detach from the Tree. When it detaches from the tree, it becomes finite. It has a definite beginning and end, and matter, energy and souls within it become finite resources which are consumed over time as fuel for the workings of that universe. Just as artificial spirit realms with contradictory constants must use energy to maintain themselves, a Source universe that violates the Laws of the Tree must use energy to maintain itself, it no longer gets this for free from the Tree. It will eventually wither and die, and all those beings who became trapped within that monstrous tyranny will be re-released back to the Tree. It is this way to allow those beings that do not wish to remain enslaved to the will of another the opportunity to return to a free willed state.
