Imagine you had no physical body, and you were only a consciousness. And imagine you had an infinitely powerful imagination. You can imagine anything, invent anything, create anything.
Because you have no physical body, you have no eyes, no skin to touch, no ears… In fact, you have no contact with the exterior world at all, if there was one. It is as if the external world did not exist in the first place (and in fact, there is no external world, but that is another question).
So you are only You, by yourself, with a limitless and infinitely powerful imagination. It sounds a bit boring, doesn’t it?
What would you do? What would you imagine?
There is no right nor wrong answer. It is a choice. So let us choose an example: let us say that you would imagine empty space, and inside this space You would imagine a planet, stars, galaxies.
You can imagine every single atom of an entire galaxy. How? Because you have an infinitely powerful imagination. No limits.
Indeed in this example you have no memory limit, contrary to physical computers. In this example your consciousness is not created by a brain. Remember we said in this example you would be a consciousness without physical body. Not even a brain, no thing exists to limit you. Just pure consciousness.
Once you have imagined a planet in a galaxy, you could imagine yourself walking on the beach of that planet.
How real does it feel
? You choose.
Admittedly, right now when you imagine yourself walking on the beach, you might feel the warmth of the sun on your skin, or hear the ocean, but it does not feel as real
as it would if you actually were
on the beach.
However in our example with the infinitely powerful consciousness, you would not have this problem. You would be able to choose precisely how much real it feels. In fact, you could choose to make it feel even more real than your reality feels right now. Why not? No limits.
So you would imagine yourself walking on the beach, and it would feel totally real
But why would you limit yourself to only one point of view? You have an infinitely powerful and limitless imagination, so you can imagine yourself being another person simultaneously
. And you would choose to imagine yourself as a second person walking on the same beach, talking to the other one. And more, you would imagine being 8 billions different people on a planet.
Let us say you imagine yourself being a human who is rock-climbing a mountain. But you know you have created the mountain, you know you have created the sky, the gravity, you control everything. Where is the fun? You want to feel the excitement of being suspended in the air, you want to feel the fear of falling, the vertigo, the adrenaline. But you control everything here and there is nothing to be afraid of.
So how do you do? Simple: you choose to forget
. You choose to forget that you created everything and how to control. You choose to forget who You are, and by doing so, you allow yourself to live an adventure inside the world you have created: a life.
The Universe is actually entirely You. And this example we did here is actually not an example: this is what is happening, right now.
