Theory Of Afterlife Evidence
6.3 Case Three – Dreams
6.3.1 The Significance Of Dreams
In terms of afterlife dreams are important for two reasons:
First dreams speak to the vividness of memory. While in a dream the conscious mind is immersed in a reality that is every bit as real as reality itself. Dreams shows that memory is a physical realm consisting of time and space.
Second dreams give the mind a way to process the enormous amount of data that comes into the mind everyday. It is a way for the mind to catch up and process memory for long-term storage. It is as though the mind has a short-term buffer that is filled during the day and this information gets moved into memory at night. These functions are typical of a computer system handling this much data.
Computer scientists know that if you put information into memory, then come back 100 years later, it may not be there anymore. However if you move this data onto newer hardware, thereby refreshing it periodically, it will remain perfect indefinitely. Dreams provide the mind a way to move information physically within memory, creating copies of it, and comparing it while in storage.
Dreams give the mind a way to handle data during downtimes. They also give us evidence that memory is a realm.
6.3.2 Lying Awake And In The Present
Picture memory as a large body of water. Awareness sits on the surface of the water. The surface is the present. As long as awareness is located on the surface, you are awake. If you are trying to get to sleep, as long as you are thinking rational thoughts your conscious awareness will stay on the surface. When in the present, you will not go to sleep. Only when you begin to think irrational thoughts, thoughts that do not makes sense, are you beginning to fall asleep. Staying conscious, rational, and in the present will not bring about sleep.
When you begin to fall asleep conscious awareness begins to sink below the surface. What is happening is your conscious awareness is going back into your memory. This can happen because memory is time and space. It is a physical realm of space/time where the mind can go.
6.3.3 Falling Asleep And In The Past
During sleep conscious awareness remains remains below the surface back in time. Our point of view is transported back into memory where it resides. If there is a noise, such as an alarm going off, it will return to the present. To awake conscious awareness comes up from being submerged to return to the surface of the lake. When the conscious mind reaches the surface it is in the present. We wake up. Conscious awareness returns to the present moment.
That is not to say that afterlife is a dream state. While dreaming conscious awareness is still a point of view with time and space. The difference however, is that during dreams that point of view is not in the present. It goes somewhere else in time. It goes into memory.
The place we go during sleep is as real as reality. The events, thoughts, and physical space during sleep are as real as reality. We may tell ourself during sleep that this is a dream. However the surrounding physical space is real. Time experienced is real too. The time and space realm of dreams is in the mind. It is real and it is contained within the mind. Dreams provide evidence that memory is real time and space. The environment during dreams is real as the environment while awake. There is no difference between the two.
That is not to say that afterlife is like dreaming. During dreams we are a point of view. Afterlife is an expansion of the point to view to encompass time and space. Dreams are like reality. Dreams are life where conscious awareness is a point in time and space. They just take place in an environment made up entirely of memory. Reality is made up entirely of memory too. Being awake we see reality as being on the outside. Dreams provide proof that reality is actually on the inside. Dreams reinforce the concept that reality that exist entirely within memory.
6.3.4 Statement of Evidence
Theory of Afterlife states that life is a system made up of a point of conscious awareness surrounded by the time/space of memory. Dreams provide evidence by allowing conscious awareness to be transported to a completely different place in time and space while maintaining the completeness of reality. Dream reality is just as real, detailed, and complete as awake reality. This proves that reality is actually within the mind. Reality is in memory. This proves that memory is our surrounding dimension of time and space.
Dreams to not give us a glimpse of afterlife. Dreams are like life. The system of conscious awareness and memory is intact. What they do show is memory as time and space. Dreams show us that mind created reality is as real as physical reality. Conscious awareness going to far off locations within time and space, while still being within our mind, prove that memory is physical time and space. Dreams show us first-hand that memory is reality. They show us the potential of what conscious awareness can expand into.
