[Excerpt from a POF on April 6, 2012]
You’ve mentioned elsewhere that two people are not in the exact same parallel unless they are in physical contact with each other. If that is the case, can you elaborate some on how people can communicate across parallels (for example, in the case of this chat), and/or what people are sensing when they see, for example, someone across the room?
In response to the first question, we would say that we probably meant "reality," not "parallel," though these terms are often interchangeable. Two people can be quite close and still have quite different realities, but if they are in contact, they are in the same parallel.
The extent to which one is sharing layers or reality with another is the extent to which one is sharing the depths of a parallel, as well. This chat is still physical contact, and there are a multitude of ways for physical contact to occur; it is not limited to touch, but to the fabric of that plane.
The very basic default of shared reality is physical space, and if you are sharing that, you are probably in the same parallel. However, that same person may be from a completely different emotional or intellectual reality, and never share that space with you.
An exploration of the subject "the 9 realities" may shed further light on this subject.
