The benefits gained from eating this fruit of knowledge are far greater than their price, for its nutrition catalyzes a way back to this same wild existence; except that this time, it can include social goals. Not just for basic sustenance, but for the freedom and joy to create life itself.
In order to maximize our sense of being alive, we need to cultivate universal wildness and social skills, both. Their collaboration creates a landscape filled with opportunities and beauties that are beyond the ability of what any society alone can offer, and beyond what can come from any unsocialized wilderness.
The self-organizing principles of the external wilderness apply equally to an organic society, which can only appear when all within it are truly free.
Scroll 11-section 1.2
Even though many societies claim to embody such a system, they have no other vision but to promote bureaucracies that reduce people to numbers and sociological theories.
Most social institutions practice a connecting-the-dots technique of moving from one point to another. They use the straight lines of rules that are based upon the averaging of templated human beings. Straight lines do not foster authenticity but require and empower rulers. The curved line predominates within us, for we ultimately live by feelings.
If we want to achieve both freedom and self-realization, then we need to question the information that directs us into action. The more clearly we understand our key words, the more our thoughts can serve our goals. Instead of then dominating us, the words that we both send and receive will help us synchronize our universal and social experiences of life.
Scroll 11-section 2.1
When we accept responsibility for the information that we receive from our unhindered perceptions, then we have the daring to become our truest self without the need for anyone’s authorization or validation. We will still want to govern ourselves in cooperation with others, but only to the extent that anyone has a right to expect it.
Without guilt, we will sense the natural limits for how much we must give of ourselves, how much we need to keep, and how much we can take from another. If people affirmed the ideal of each one being their truest selves, then a thriving organic society would emerge without the need for any artificial incentives or controls.
The hallmark of a truly civilized being or society is that they want to protect the dignity of others, as well as their own.
Scroll 11-section 2.2
To do so, lets people be their full selves, each according to their nature.
Democracy means that each one of us is responsible for the government that we have. In parallel, the government is itself responsible for facilitating its citizens’ activism for an ever better society. By implication, the democratic model recognizes the high value of each person, even when it inadequately implements the educational investment that this political relationship must make.
Without providing access to the education needed for nuanced and sophisticated forms of thinking, a democratic society cultivates its decay from within. Pure survival or greed as the primary engines thus maintain their merciless supremacy, regardless of technological or cultural sophistication. Within such a game, situations and players may change forms and positions, but as each >
Scroll 11-section 3.1
> thing looks out for itself at major costs to others, the battles of supremacy continues.
However, when we see reality as manifesting vibratory landscapes that rise and fall according to acts of imagination and ideals, then we can dispense with competition and, instead, cooperate to create a world whose resources benefit everyone. Individuality and prosperity cannot help but then flourish.
This global teamwork is not an effort to homogenize the human experience, but rather to minimize—through pooled information and a collective vision—the time spent acquiring resources for basic survival.
We human beings can create heaven on earth. It starts by taking responsibility for our own life’s fulfillment; this is pragmatic rather than selfish. As the Sufi story goes, only the person with an overflowing bowl has enough to share with others.
Scroll 11-section 3.2
14 Being in Tune
If we want to develop our transformative abilities, we need to think of our life as filled, not with solid objects, but with information-directed energy. This energy is first vibratory, then modulated into being by the information that we accept as true.
Within the creative freedom inherent to this paradigm, we can still experience reality as if it could not be transformed at will. Without >
Scroll 11-section 4.1
> that element, there could be no edges or tensions to define what we experience, and to make things matter such that our pleasures and pains are in the balance.
The drawback to this edgy device, however, is that if we identify too much with reality’s terms of solid being, then we feel convincingly locked into our situations. The effect of this biased foreshortening is that we have to negotiate with external forces on their own, and much more restrictive conditions and parameters.
Rather than work from the outside in, the most efficient (and interesting) way to achieve any goal is to work from the inside out. From that standpoint, we can conceptually draw out the desired changes through our imagination, feelings, and our basic emotional resonances—(omitted: such as what is contained in our hearts. )
Scroll 11-section 4.2
Imagination is especially active in bringing about materiality because it generates an emotionally charged wave whose vibratory instructions activate the +crossfield’s potential for organizing informational relationships so as to appear in the form of specific objects and states of being.
Through explicit elements of information, it instructs sub-quantum energy to collapse out of its indeterminate state and emerge into well-defined particles. These then organize on the atomic level to become distinct things, including neurological triggers to act and to intuitively receive information.
The “feel” for any imagined reality starts with these emotionally pulsed vibratory textures. Before becoming defined imagery and language, these vibes gather into a kind of orchestrated existential “music,” >
Scroll 11-section 5.1
> the most fitting word for information emerging as being. In a direct way, the music to which we respond to is a one-dimensional restatement of our own deep story; the quantum field’s fluctuations have thus gone full circle and returned us to our native landscapes.
According to what concepts are activated, our imagination's vibrations have a specific rhythm and melody to them.
Scroll 11-section 5.2
Their preverbal modulations cohere in the form of a tonal composition, one that begins the process of adding dimensionality to concepts. The feel of these vibratory textures follows the textual content of both what is desired and, subliminally of what is shunned.
In every instant of our nao, we all long for specific tones to either, be added or, removed from the melody composed by our actions and reactions. These desires, whether unconscious or overt, evoke words and images in us that have the potential to draw out what they represent into full materiality.
Not just our preferences, but what we fear also takes on life when we let it have its way in imagination. To dwell on our fears only adds more details to what we do not want, and so subtly cultivates its arrival. The cost of reassuring ourselves away from these imagined anxieties is a very taxing way >
Scroll 11-section 6.1
> of confirming our needs and wants.
It is far better to ignore our fears and focus instead on nurturing our ideals. These will be directed by our heart's longings, in combination with our biology's need for ongoing health at all levels, from the transcendental to the physical. The facilitator of this welcome navigation is our own surrender to what comes through from the +crossfield in the form of guiding information.
Scroll 11-section 6.2 — End of Scroll 11
When it arrives, this imagined-into-being actuality will not obviously violate any of reality's ruling principles so as to appear truly impossible. This is one of the beauties inherent in the concept of "real" reality. Instead of something nonsensical happening, there is the new information that now, in its revelation, changes everything in our favor.
It comes in a multitude of forms, from an unexpected circumstance, to the arrival of opportunities, to the remembrance of a forgotten detail, to simply new information out of the blue. These factors will morph a situation in such a way that still all continues to make sense.
