Our brains collect billions of pieces of sensory data and to organize it all, it created a "self" to listen. This self is like a librarian in our brains, not us. ( The Self Illusion, by Bruce Hood)
So, what are we?
We call the voice in our heads our soul, but this is not our soul. It is the "self" the little self that has been made by the billions of sensory data. New Experiences create a new illusion of a different "self."
But, don't worry, there is a "bigger" self — it's much bigger than you would imagine, it is the Expanded Mind, which are like a "Cell" within and carrying all your knowledge and experiences like DNA. Yet you maintain your personality after death, like DNA holding the data of everything we have ever been. We take our "unique personalities" where ever we go, in this life and in the next.
There is no punishment upon death, no hell, and no karma. Because there is no such thing as "time". Everything occurs in the present moment. Our true reality is occurring in all three— present, past and future simultaneously. This is quantum physics. It's about Becoming!
My memoir "From Hollywood to God" is now on Amazon and Kindle books!
My first stop was to The World Sound Healing Conference in San Francisco. I wanted to understand the science of frequencies, especially if everything in the universe was vibrating to their own unique song!
I waited in the large conference room to hear Dr. Susan Yale's lecture on the Harmonic Oscillator.
The room went black and three pyramids projected on a movie screen.
"You can hear the sound of "nature" between the Pyramids of Giza," Dr. Yale said, pausing, "it's a perfect F Sharp."
No one moved. She spoke slowly, "If you knew there was a place in the world where you could hear God, would you go?"
I always wanted to sleep on the Nile!"
