The brain as a portal to parallel worlds

Post by MaartenV »

This is a link to a brief essay about the brain and its access to parallel universes.

Parallel universes are only accessible through the mind via the brain in my hypothesis. Our mind always takes the form of an avatar, as in virtual reality worlds when we put on VR glasses.

The body in which we appear to other observers is an avatar.

Psychedelic trips, Near-Death experiences, astral travel, and lucid dreaming make us, through the brain as a portal, temporarily present in another parallel world. There we take on a different avatar and meet avatars of other minds. They take on a certain avatar there, which they don't have in other parallel worlds. For example, 'The Light' or 'beings of light' that people see during an almost-death experience represents perhaps The Source from which all consciousness comes.

A mind is invisible in itself, so it must look like an avatar in order to exist in a universe. The avatars we see during astral travel or during Near-Death experiences or psychedelic trips represent a mind.

I call myself a dualist, but not a dualist in the sense of mind vs matter. I'm a dualist in the sense of mind vs (parallel) universe and whatever it is made of. I'm also not a materialist. Because some parallel worlds are not made of matter as we know it. I'm not an idealist, because in my theory not every object in a world represents a mind. Only avatars represent minds.

Every experienced world has its own laws of nature. But a parallel world is only accessible through the dying brain/avatar in this universe. The observers are your mind and other minds each represented by an avatar in every world. My analogy is a virtual reality game where you wear a virtual reality headset.

I feel like I've walked out of a movie theatre and have been asked give feedback. Ok then ... That too is a Mind-movie that isn't capturing this Imagination. Might make a box office hit for some though. ;)
Here out of instinct or grace we seek
soulmates in these galleries of hieroglyph and glass,
where mutual longings and sufferings of love
are laid bare in transfigured exhibition of our hearts,
we who crave deep secrets and mysteries,
as elusive as the avatars of our dreams.

What's the probability that someone could experience being a Boltzmann brain elsewhere in the cosmological multiverse?

I admit I didn't pay the .99 to buy your essay, so my comments are limited to your post. I don't use and am not familiar with the word 'avatar' except it's use to define the appearance on earth of a divine teacher, as in, Jesus is an avatar. You are essentially calling everything an avatar, so for me the word looses it's import.
Also it would help if you tightend up your use of words 'mind' and 'brain'.- unless you mean to use them inter-changeably.
Otherwise, I don't see anything different than what I might read on any New Age bookshelf.

An avatar is a representation of a mind in a world. A body, a pinpoint of light. It is a body of some kind of appearance of you for other minds in a world.
