I have purposely waited for some time, to write about the problems involved in understanding the idiosyncrasies of time when confronted with the almost irrefutable proofs of advancing moments, hours, years and centuries. Continuity of past, present and future seem to be an absolute within the physical universe, but please understand that the universe is only physical to your particular senses and your senses can sometimes lead you astray in the pursuit of true knowledge.
Clock time is an unnatural human overlay of "natural time", the dawn and dusk, the relentless progression of the seasons lapsing into years and centuries.
Time marches on; but what really is time, and if time as you experience it through your physical perceptive apparatus can be misleading at best, then what exactly is time to other species of consciousness alien to your own that do not posses the same kind of perspective mechanisms.
You don't have to go too far to run into these, what you may not consider alien consciousness, but whose perception of time is much different than your own. Your pets are alien enough to perceive reality in far different terms that you do. A dog, a cat and most other species including the chimpanzees that you consider your closest animal relatives, experience time far differently than you do.
Time reality within the Earth system is evident at certain levels, but still bears some explanation, and frankly cannot be adequately explained to anyone still inhabiting a human body, since the body itself requires physical time for data to travel the nerve endings, jump the synapses and travel to the brain for processing before any physical response is activated. Time then is a human thing that is a development of the evolution of human consciousness, but not all earthly consciousness. The animals have evolved their own perceptions of time and they are quite unlike yours.
This uniquely human time lapse observed in the bodily nervous system obviously requires time, but this time dependent physical body of yours and all other species is only an appearance that energy takes within certain frequencies that are the basis for your emergence within the physical system.
The animal's nervous systems and brains interpret the same lapses differently, and so for them, the present seems larger in terms of intensity and value fulfillment instead of being lengthened, which is the animal's way of perceiving reality. Given different life frequencies, you would not have a physical body on this planet at all. You might exist in another system with different requirements for materialization, but that is another story.
For the present, you are primarily a psychological being enjoying a sojourn into the "Earth" physical system of reality, and you will be for some foreseeable time in the future in your present body and in future physical bodies. It is impossible for the soul to experience your world without materializing a portion of itself in a physical body, and in this process a portion of the soul must remain un-materialized and aloof from three-dimensional reality.
In this life, you carry within your genetic structure and within past memories buried in your subconscious, traces of previous lives that you have lived before this, your present life.
The knowledge of these past lives of yours are withheld from you at this time, since this kind of knowledge would simply overwhelm your present method of temporal reality perception. You can barely handle the trials and challenges that one life throws at you, let alone having to deal with multiple life data.
The real reason that your "past life" recall information is withheld is far more challenging a concept than you presently realize. From what I have said, you could correctly come to the conclusion that the perception of a past, present and future are happening simultaneously in the NOW, so there must be some contradiction in what I have said about past reincarnational lives. It is commonly assumed that reincarnation means that one life is lived after the previous life in a continuous forward progression in time. This is the way you "must" percieve it at this time, but it is a great distortion of the true nature of reincarnational lives.
All lives are lived in the PRESENT, probable lives, simultaneous (soul-mate lives) and reincarnational lives. Renincarnational lives are simply probable lives viewed through the lens of time., but in reality, they are also living in the present.
So there is no mistake, and I realize this will not be understood by many at this time, all of these lives being lived NOW in the PRESENT are physical lives, but in different planes, dimensions and worlds. To you, with your built in assumptions of solidity, distance and space, these lives will seem to be non-physical since you will perceive a lack of space to contain them in their own worlds. Their own worlds occupy the same space as your Earth.
Your past reincarnational selves, the selves that you were from your present point of view, are still alive and well NOW and for that reason, an understanding of the true nature of the "self that you are" will help you open yourself to connections between all of those other aspects of your identity that still exist and can be utilized to the extent that you believe they exist. You will obviously not experience something that your conscious beliefs will not let into your area of concentration.
MANY ASPECTS OF YOUR SELF, other than just the self that YOU THAT YOU KNOW, are just as alive as you are, but your attention is not focused in their direction so you are not consciously aware of their existence. They are likewise not aware of your existence but from their perspective, they are the REAL YOU, and you would be the probable self, reincarnational self, etc., etc.
Because of your preoccupation with time, you perceive the lives of these previous self traces as finished and done, while they are still alive in your present, just not in your reality system. Because you believe so strongly in time continuity, you must then plant memories in the past of their existence and death, but the past personality still lives and has long since gone its own way, as incidentally, you will go your own way after leaving behind irrefutable proof of your demise for future generations to grieve over.
I hope you can now see some of the real reasons that past life data is not accessible to your memory without special arrangements to assist in the recall. Recall will still indicate a death as recorded, but only the death of physical body, not the death of a vital alive personality.
The ability to recall and utilize past life data is presently latent within the brain and nervous system, and future developments of brain and of the human species itself, will lead it to adopt a new way of putting together past and present memories in one present expanded conscious self.
In other words, the species will undergo dramatic changes and you will become more than is possible now. You will put together your experience differently and include not only your presently remembered history, but also the combined history of other portions of your identity that are not handily retrievable at this time. They do exist and can be remembered quite easily with the assistance of a good trained hypnotist who understands the existence of reincarnation.
There is some evidence of this kind of multiple life reality existing in your world in cases of multiple personalities. Without going into too much detail here, I want to mention that your past selves are not dead by any stretch of the imagination; they exist as surely as you exist, but they do not exist in your system, and have gone their own way.
To you, they have died, but you only recognize the death and decay of the physical body and the physical body only represents the personality for a short time while it is being utilized to gain entrance into the physical world. In other words, you need a three dimensional physical form if you want to play the game of Earth 101.
And here my friends, is the statement that I have withheld for years for fear that you would run off and declare my insanity, but now, feeling more secure with my position with you, I intend to proceed with material that is essential you understanding the totality of your own self and understanding of the "Earth reality system" that you inhabit.
In the inner universe from which all worlds emerge and all identities spring, ALL TIME IS SIMELTANEOUS, and yes, everything exists at once, in the expansive NOW. There is no real distinction between past, present and future and yet, before you ask, there is still expansion and nothing is finished, as might be suspected.
Time continuity is a unique creation of the physical world that you know and will always be of some importance to existence within all physical systems. Non-Physical systems, of which there is a preponderance, do not need, nor do they utilize time to any great degree. The more advanced reality systems are non-physical, yet they still utilize atomic structure and experience the tinge of time in ways not well understood.
Before I get too far into the weeds here, let me remind you of your dream activity, where you can travel roads over continents from sea to shining sea, viewing all of the pertinent travel destinations, in one wonderful dream event, tasting the dream foods, smelling sweet dream fragrances, feeling velvety dream textures, yet upon waking, find that only a few minutes have elapsed and you are sleeping safely in your bed. You have truly traveled hundreds if not thousands of miles and experienced a variety of sensualities in relatively no clockk time.
You have visited the important monuments, talked with other people, enjoyed countless sunrises and sunsets, gazed over wide expanse of oceans, but still, no time has elapsed. Of course, you created all of this in your bedroom with your body snuggled securely in bed while you experienced many activities, traveled miles on strange roads that you have constructed over and through your bed, night stand and bedroom chest. You utilized the same space that they occupy, and they didn't even notice.
You may consider dreams to be pure fantasy, but I would then ask you, what is physical reality? You may say that physical reality is dependent on atomic structure to construct hard physical objects and events that are solid and endure in time, where dream events don't.
When you understand that dream activities also utilize atoms to create form, just not in the same consistency as yours. The main difference is thickness, bulk and perceivable durability. Dreams endure outside of your system, so you don't regularly bump into dream objects or remember dream events in the same way as you do physical reality. No dream once dreamt ever dies. They fall into the dream universe where they also continue to exist and go their own way in their native system.
What I am trying to point out is exactly what Einstein instinctively knew, that time is relative, what he didn't foresee at first is that space is also relative.
Consciousness creates all reality systems.
Reality systems do not create or evolve consciousness.
Without a first thought, nothing would exist. Period!
Having said that, I would like to move on, and rest assured, if some of what is said here seems vague or unbelievable, that does not make it so. Now that I have begun the discussion of time as it really is, I can begin to explain how it affects all other phases of your life and the life of your cultures and civilizations, since it applies so closely with your own total identity.
I do not mean that time does not exist in a practical and utilitarian way within the world that you know, and in fact, it is indispensible for physical existence. Time is certainly real and necessary within the precise parameters for existence in your three dimensional world, but it does not exist as such elsewhere in the universe.
To clarify that a bit, time exists for your system of reality, and extends through your system of reality, which includes everything that is perceivable of the universe that you know to you, but only you, meaning your earth civilization. Alien species, utilizing the same universal raw material as you, put their own universe together in far different terms. Put another way, you would never recognize the universe of the Romulans.
I am of course, inferring that from your perspective, you only perceive a small portion of the whole universe, a very small portion indeed. You perceive the portion of the universe that happens to intrude into your physical dimension and is picked up by your physical senses through a time perspective, but there are other dimensions that utilize your same coveted, cozy universe, that is incidentally, not solely yours. The time orientations arise from the facility of your type of consciousness, and cannot be applied universally.
Time as you know it is foreign as seen from the perspective of others, occupying what you would classify as alien worlds.
You may ask why this kind of knowledge is important, and what do you gain by understanding the true nature of time. When things in your life are not going well and you begin to root through past memories to look for the reasons for present day problems, you will inevitably begin to wonder if your life problems could be the result of a previous life experience thrust upon you by some Karmic judgement from some aspect of a previous reincarnational life.
Knowing what is begun here, you will understand that this would be impossible since all lives are lived at once in the expanded present and beyond your present three dimensional world and its time demands, the past does not exist and in those terms and neither do past selves and neither do the causes of present difficulties. All aspects of you exist NOW. Your point of power is not to be found in the past, but in the present, and all life adjustments must be made from the present.
Please feel free to submit questions using the "comments" link dfound below. I will attempt to answer all appropriate questions within the limitations of my knowledge.

Atlantis, what a tantalizing tale it is that has occupied the minds of men for thousands of years. Scholars far and wide have explored the deserts, the seacoasts and under the sea as best they can with somewhat limited mobility under water until recently.
I somehow wish I hadn't promised to write about Atlantis simply because no two people have heard the same story and also because the story that no-one can agree on, has changed so much over the centuries that it is a wonder this great myth has survived this long. It is not so much that I don't know what I want to write about, but that I don't quite know how to express the real truths about Atlantis in terms that most people will understand.
I am in no way demeaning your intelligence, but suggesting that what you know is only what you have been taught or what you have learned from sources that are simply wrong. I have suggested many times before that the Earth is a rather new reality system, and one that is uniquely endowed with characteristics that afford the widest latitude in exploration of the limits of new consciousness in a physical reality system.
For that reason, much of what you have been taught is just flat out wrong or at best, you are learning the true nature or reality but fortunately, you have all the time you need to progress to the point that you will be ready to move out of the physical system to more challenging worlds. Having said all of that, it would be easier for you to understand what I say here had you had some basic understanding of the formation of reality itself and the role that probabilities play in creating the world that you know.
In time terms, a very long time ago mankind experienced his reality much different than you do now and a there was no great divide between your dreaming and waking state. Men and women did not differentiate so much between their daytime and nighttime activities and unlike you today, there was sometimes confusion between what you would call real and what you now view as unreal.
It is not that you don't use sleep in the same way today because you do, but you tend to forget your dreams upon waking whereas in the past those dreams were incorporated into your daytime activities and provided an enriching thickness to everyday experience. Early man had more difficulty in differentiating between physical activities and dream activities. There was no clear-cut line drawn, so they were more familiar with the unknown process involved in negotiating between probabilities in adopting the events that will form and mold your future daily experience.
These ancient people were awaking from a state that I have described before as "dawn-treaders" or sleepwalkers, those whose dreaming selves experienced what you today consider your waking physical reality.
At some hypothetical point in those ancient times, mankind began to wonder about that which was not, to the point that his dreams began to reflect the idea of a parallel reality of a wondrous place that only the gods could create and reside. That imaginary place contained streets of gold and structures of exceeding brilliance and the peoples that inhabited that reality were gifted with extraordinary abilities, good health, abundance and blessed with the best that life had to offer while still in a physical body.
There has been much written about the physical attributes of this mystical place called Atlantis, so there is no need for me to expound on that since you can research the subject fully at your leisure on the internet. Atlantis is a myth that to some extent was real, in their dreams, hopes and aspirations, at least to the people of those times. They yearned to live in an Atlantis.
The human race is a natural maker of myths. Newborn spiders are born with the knowledge of how to build spider webs without being taught. From their first hours, baby spiders know how to weave webs. It does not have to be taught web-weaving skills. In the same way, beavers know how to build dams without having been taught. A mother beaver does not have to take their young to a stream, push him in the water and teach him how to build a dam. He instinctively knows, and in the same way men and women know instinctively how to create myths. It is a natural characteristic of humans and has been since the beginning of time.
In some ways that I am not prepared to delve into at this time, the Earth reality system that you inhabit today is the result of myth that because of its strength and the conviction of the personalities believing in the myth, took on the properties and coalesced into the natural world and environment, giving physical reality its depth, solidity, bulk and duration. In certain terms, the dream woke up and solidified.
Some myths are short lived for various reasons, the most important being that not enough people believed in them for long enough periods of time and with enough intensity to give them durability. They disappeared from the physical scene for "lack of mass interest" and fell into other more appropriate reality systems where the requirements for physical manifestation were not as demanding and as rigid as the Earth system. They still exist, just not at your level of manifestation or perception.
Other myths DO have enough impetus, gaining enough strength, and enough mass interest that they are perpetuated down through centuries, even though their validity and legitimacy has nothing to do with physical matter.
Atlantis is one, and although you don't realize it, you are all quite familiar with other long lasting and mass adopted myths, those being religious myth, which individually, and in masse, are some of the most enduring and most common myths of all time. So there is no mistake here, I mean all religions to some extent. The great strength of religion comes from the mixing of real truths and imaginings, with myth, so there is no easy to ascertain dividing line between true and false. In that sense, Christ was real, his purpose was real, but Christianity was mostly myth that grew up around the Christ personality.
But that is for another day.
The Atlantis myth survived time and gathered strength over the centuries, fortified by humanity in the dream state and eventually confused with the "Garden of Eden" stories of the Old Testament. The Garden of Eden legends handed down through time are confusing, becoming so discombobulated over time that it is hard to separate one story from another. In myths, fictions become truths to those who believe.
The real reason that myth has so much strength and why it is so difficult to discern the truth is the great mixing and merging that takes place between psychic reality and physical reality. In other words, real mixes with unreal and what you end up with is neither, kind of like making sausage.
One thing is for sure, by the time the Atlantis tales were picked up by Plato in the dream state, written about and passed on, Atlantis supposedly existed as a large continent or large city-state as they were want to be called in those times, that existed beyond the Pillars of Hercules in the Gibraltar Strait, which would put it somewhere in the Atlantic ocean.
It was not known at that time just what existed beyond the Pillars of Hercules, which were thought to refer to the Rock of Gibraltar and one of two other islands existing off the coast of Greece and there was even then much confusion which of these other two islands represented the second of the two Pillars in the strait that connected the Mediterranean and the Atlantic oceans.
One thing that most agree on is that Atlantis was destroyed, or destroyed itself. Plato spoke of a great war launched by the people of Atlantis against the mainland, which it lost and here too there is much confusion in the myth because it is said that shortly after losing that war, Atlantis was destroyed by earthquakes and volcanic activity that caused the entire continent of Atlantis to sink below the sea and disappear. Other legends say that some of the Atlanteans survived and made it to Egypt and ancestors of those ancient people still exist there today.
Now, here is where this may get a bit difficult but I will to explain to the best of my ability. The Earth is much older than most scientists' suspect and several Atlantean-like civilizations have come and gone leaving no physical trace. They did leave psychic remnants that are still swirling about the psychological atmosphere. The continents were not as they are now and all continental configurations now existing, migrated to their present positions on the surface of the earth from one large originating continent named Pangaea.
For that reason nothing is where it is supposed to be, in ancient geographical terms. One unknown, ancient civilization existed in the general geographic area where Australia is now located, was highly technical, succeeded evolved and migrated to another planet in the universe, leaving no trace due to continental migration. Another, less successful, destroyed itself and has also been lost. This first advanced civilization caused some confusion in the creation of the Atlantis legend.
Artifacts from these ancient people can indeed be found under the depths of the oceans, but you must remember the oceans now cover what were then landmasses and land areas have moved and risen from beneath the seas worldwide. You have searched for Atlantis in the Aegean, in the Mediterranean and in the Caribbean, but they are not located there and in practical terms, you will find nothing at this time because they do not exist there yet. I will try to explain.
The latent memories of these civilizations linger in the psychic history of the Earth and were recalled and entered into the dreams of Plato and others during the formative stages of the legend of Atlantis. You could say that the legend of Atlantis was at least partially dreamed into existence. You could also say that the myth consisted of remnants of a lost civilization remembered in dreams and thrust outward into the psyche of the physical world.
I should mention here that all reality systems have mental roots, psychological patterns, later filled out with atomic structure to become perceivable, hard, solid worlds. There was a great mixing of real physical events and psychic events, yearnings for the Garden Eden, Nirvana, Heaven and other states of existence that eventually became the myth of Atlantis and the myths of many religions. The reason that Atlantis has not yet been found is that it does not exist yet because it has not been placed there in the past from the future psyche probability.
And here I must touch on how probabilities affect the history of the human species and the other species that you shave the planet with. Every personality has its own probable version personalities, which I have discussed before. Likewise, every other physical construction has its own probable versions of itself, which exist in other probable reality systems.
En masse, every civilization spins off probable versions of itself and every world exists as one version among other probable versions of itself. So there is no confusion, I am saying that there are other probable physical worlds that are quite as valid as your own, undetected by your most sensitive instruments because they exist in other dimensions, but still in the same space that your world occupies.
Every event creates probable versions that will play out somewhere. There is no outcome of any event that touches your life that is not experienced by a probable you in another probable reality in another probable world. The person that you married in this life, you didn't marry in another reality system.
The difficulty of this material is precisely why I had misgivings about talking about this at this time without further preparations, but we shall try anyway.
You create your reality through the cumulative effect of your beliefs, emotions, thoughts, ideas and expectations. These coalesce into your reality that you experience, also creating your closely held environment. In that respect, unreal becomes real given enough time and, desire and intensity. You do the same in creating your dream reality, except you create without solidity and bulk, but the process is exactly the same. You are creators of your experience, both seen and unseen.
Nothing happens to you, everything happens by you. Period.
The emotional expectations of mankind's longing for the perfect place to live, the place you want to live, gave birth to the probable world of Atlantis in myth, but a myth that you are not yet prepared to materialize. Atlantis does exist in future probability and in certain terms, it is as real as the world you encounter in your everyday exploits on a solid planet.
This will be the most difficult part, and that is to convince you that a thought is as real as a rock, an emotion is as real as a star, and solidity is just an overlay effect of matter on psychic patterns. Atlantis exists today as a probability for materialization at some future date to come. Remember, time is malleable and is relative depending on your psychological viewpoint.
Everyday you create events in your life. I have explained how past, present and future can be changed from the present and events are continuously being manipulated so there is a continuous stream of events that maintain a logical order, one leading to another. There must be continuity of events for them to make sense to the human brain in your linear reality.
Atlantis cannot exist before the events that lead to Atlantis also exist. What this means is that each event drags it's past and future along with it into physical actualization in order to be experienced in your present. You can only experience reality in your present, but no present can exist without an accompanying past. You don't notice these constant adaptations of pasts in order to compliment newly emerging presents, so everything seems just hunky dory to your perceptive mechanisms, which are precisely tuned to pick up continuity, so no violations will seem to occur.
Here is the long and short of this somewhat confusing story.
When you as a civilization, are prepared to inhabit an Atlantis, when your civilization matures, and is ready for Atlantis to exist in your world of physical reality, the world of atoms, molecules and physical structures, it will be created as a result of civilizations longings, dreams and desires. Of course, this is exactly the way all other reality is created, Atlantis will become apparent in concrete fact and will then exist in your present.
It must also exist in terms of continuity, so the present will not only drag along it's logical past but will also change future probabilities and at that time, the submerged artifacts, the buried archeological proofs will be available to be discovered and no one will think anything strange about it. Time is illusion and in your reality system, you have adopted the use of time and no matter at what point psychologically you come into the game, no self respecting event will be caught dead without a past and future. Atlantis is an event waiting to happen on the future physical landscape.
It now exists in psychological fact, waiting to become physical fact. You must evolve into Atlantis and when that happens, Atlantis will exist.
I know this is difficult material, but I also know many of you want to learn and know, and if you get some inkling of what I have been trying to explain here, we are ahead of the game.
