  1. Yesterday
  2. @Troy and Michael and all participants !!! This session is such a highlight, thank You all so much !!! ME: The work you do in this single lifetime regarding what you care about is what propels your vastness of existence in infinity. I got so many answers for myself out of this one sentence. ME: You cannot exist without caring. You cannot. It is one of only a few impossibilities. Caring, like Existence, is a constant. Neither are dependent upon being all-powerful. Very soothing, in a lot of ways. ME: When you "care so much it hurts" it is because you have left yourself out of the equation of caring. Rings the bell, in such a simplistic way. Love is all inclusive, Victory includes defeat. I sooo love what each participant cares about and all the peoples, its a thread of the weave.

    It is funny how sometimes clear and then sometimes how difficult it is to see the ideal of the person we aspire to be. Sometimes I have been so far from who I want to be ie being straight, working as a nurse, then I am so close to who I wanted to be: vegan, employed, playing music and creating landscapes, making food for friends and family, and having a cool place such as TLE to be creatively seen and weird in not too many questions asked... I am glad that you are being you and she is still there, the one who was there ages ago when you were in your 20s. I was listening to Your Funeral My Trial - I love Stranger than kindness, hard on for love, long time man, Tender Prey - I love all of it Let love in - all of it esp Do you love me Part 2
  4. Wow. Tears here too and also wishing this didn't resonate so much. Sometimes when Michael talks about many or most students I feel like I'm one of the not many but not this time. Just yesterday I woke up saying "I'm so tired of the fight". Every day there's more feelings of defeat than victory. This brings a whole new lens to our caring and embracing it, which truthfully feels like another huge challenge but perhaps is more a soft change of focus. Mind once again officially blown!
  5. This is an amazing session and it brought me to tears. I have been feeling a sense of defeat throughout this year and have been so exhausted. It is difficult getting through the days. I can relate to most of the individual assessments too. Thanks!

    ENERGY REPORT: August 2018

    @AnnaD Yes, I feel very grounded in who I've become as I've allowed myself to be the person I was on track to be in my early 20's, then ran hard away from; she's much healthier and happier. Though she is also a little more amoral, and a few other qualities I did not expect to welcome home. And she has fucking tinnitus from all that rock and roll devil music. I recognize what you're saying about the various moods you're finding yourself in. Today I'm beginning to get a message from my intuition that I should just embrace my agitation. Like, okay, I'm agitated. I feel like I'm going to jump out of my skin. Nothing and everything is happening. Embrace it. Embrace feeling anxious and weird. And what I am actually doing is slowly beginning the process of cleaning up my house, which is a nightmare of millions of tiny plastic kids toys and similar, and dust, and unshredded bank statements, and all sorts of other things I have not been attentive to. It's adding to my feeling crazy. I'm blasting Thalia Zedek and going for it to the extent that I can. Sounds like you've got a lot to manage, too. Good for you for holding that line. What Bad Seeds are you listening to? I personally love Grinderman for exercise, especially #2. Goddamn.
  7. I wish I could say this didn't resonate with me at all, but I'd be lying. They may as well said "Heidi" ( or any one of your names!) at the beginning of each sentence. So thankful for this. I'll probably be rereading it a few times.
  8. Tears. This is profound/moving. How does this resonate with those that participated? Thank you for sharing this. The demoralisation - yes. Caring so much it hurts I can also validate.
  9. I have to make a comment. What was said here really has everything to do with me. I myself have been thinking a lot these days, and I even told it to some people, that I became obsessed with the way people see me. I really liked the ending in which Michael speaks. You can better learn how to create the story of who you are, rather than let it be told by others. It seems like that's what I'm trying to do .. Even because what I've been told most of my life is that I would not be as capable as people's coucars ... But it's funny that I have trouble believing when someone Tell me the opposite .. this is a contradiction that I will address with Michael ..
  10. This was an amazing Workshop and experience. So much was clarified for me, and so many things were really outstanding: So many of the ideas that swirl around in my head and conversations! I love Michael's answers. So personal yet so universal.

    @Leela Corman, I hope that you can still hear your true voices from all of those experiences over the past few years. That is a lot to process in a short time. My moods tend to move between anarchic, shit stirring and agitated, to very slender moments of contentment. Just yesterday after a week of attempting to catch up on work backlog, and living through work union politics, I started my weekend with energy to get things done that have been put on the backburner. I started with exercising to Bad Seeds records which is loud and always GIVES me energy and makes me feel ok about things, then still listening to further Bad Seeds records I weeded, vacuumed and showered. I then wrote a public letter to my union highlighting what I perceived as their lack of democracy and I asked them bluntly what are they going to do about it? The President of the Union saw my question and answered my question. I am not a union delegate and I have become aware of the overloaded conflicting interests of my union and I do not want to become a delegate if the status quo continues. My union has both an industrial arm (striking, grievances), and a professional body. Long story short we get more value out of the professional body than we do out of the industrial arm. NZ Nurses have been offered a shit wage rise and no guarantee of fixed nurse to patient number ratios. Many nurses will defect or leave NZ to work overseas. In my letter asking the union Higher Ups What are you going to do to make it easier for each financial member to submit votes on remits online, outside of the unions AGM? And I said that we pay for your wages, do you think that you could ensure that the union enables optimal democracy by allowing online voting for all financial members one vote for one member for each remit? I had my question answered, that they are voting to enable this but that we all have to follow constitutional rules (I was suggesting that maybe the constitution could be waived in this instance to ensure greater canvassing, engagement and involvement of constituents) and follow due process blah blah blah. And the greatest part of this interaction is that I have been called as Rude and Demanding. Demanding and Rude, sure, but also, a fair question. I am not in love with my profession, we have a history of being kind ineffective doormats. I don't play that role well and this is one time that my forthcomingness had a big spotlight in all its demandingness front and centre. I have no time for conversation that creates a pleasant ambience for someone who is meant to ensure my democratic rights and hasn't, and I have no hesitations about asking questions directly to the right people. Interestingly enough, as it was a facebook group post, my post received a lot of likes, some loves, and a few probably apoplectic indignant offended wows. For me, my voice asking others what they are doing to ensure that our rights aren't turning into a US Electoral College Fracas is very important to me. And of course in me asking that, I am direct, and I let the other person know that I am aware of what is optimal, and that the current process and strategy is suboptimal. So - a lot of this happening in many areas for me at the moment. I am learning which battles to pick.
  12. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. We have received Troy's request and understand. We will respond. What we have done is look at each of you in attendance today and assessed a common theme among you. We will address this theme and then address each of you in regard to that theme. We also know that we are not speaking only to those in attendance today. What we share may help address those who attend in another time and format. From what we can see, each of you, regardless of what is happening in your life, what is demanding of you, what is distracting you, what is bringing you happiness, what is bringing you joy, what is challenging you, what is lifting you, each of you are struggling with a theme of DEFEAT. We are using this term to capture a wide range of Defeat that comes from existential crisis. There is something, someone, or some undercurrent that is wearing at each of you and it is all you can do to stay as many steps ahead of a wave of total defeat as you can. For the past 2 to 5 years, each of you appear to have been relying on great strength, support, insight, confidence, wisdom, patience, etc. to stay as many steps ahead of this sense of defeat that is trailing just behind you. It is exhausting. In the past year, some of you may have begun to feel as if you are at a breaking point. The truth is, none of you will ever "give up." None of you will. None of you are interested in resigning in any way. You have been "fighting" far too long for this haunting defeat to get the best of you. But this theme of defeat is demoralizing. Whether from world events or personal events, or a combination of both, the wave of powerlessness and defeat has reduced your sense of presence and participation in this life to some extent. Even if you are involved and active, there is a part of you that is not. A great part of you. A part of you that simply wants something better and knows that it does not have to be this hard. Here is something to consider: THIS HAPPENS IN EVERY LIFETIME, IN EVERY LIFE, IN EVERY PERSON, IN EVERY TIME. World events and personal events are incidental. They are details. From your first lifetime to your last, you will have a wave of existential crisis. In your earlier lifetimes, it manifests in ways that simply prompted reactionary defenses that blindly lash out against the experience. As you wake up and evolve and are aware within a lifetime, you begin to find the correlations between your crisis and events. The irony is that this moment for anyone in any Soul Age is triggered by a moment of contact with Essence. For those of you who are older souls who sustain those moments of contact, the effect can be quite challenging. The more you are in contact with Essence, the more you Manifest Essence, the more you live AS Essence, the deeper into an existential crisis your Personality can go. It is not about Trump. It is not about your lost love. It is not about your lack of direction or motivation. It is not about your fellow human beings and their idiocy. It is not about life or your life, at all. It is about the process of grasping your infinity while finite. The more you are in contact with that vastness of infinity, the more you may turn your focus to the "comforts" of the finite. This points you toward the important events of your current life and the short amount of time you have to resolve or solve these challenges. How can you embrace your vastness of infinity without losing all concerns for the challenges that are a reality in this finite form? If you exist in cycles that are GRAND and you are told that you have come and gone through many of those cycles, there must have been many things that felt desperately important and now you simply do not remember them or know a thing about those moments from other universes and times and places. How do you care about a life that is a blink in the vastness of existence? How do you embrace the vastness of existence while grieving loss or wishing for better or fighting for equality and peace? If you embrace your vastness, will you not care anymore? If you care too deeply, are you rejecting your vastness? Here is the "twist:" You and your life are a microcosm of your Essence and "the universe." The more you live as Essence, the more you care; the more you pay attention. The more it matters to you how a single day goes. The cumulative effect of caring how your day goes is the same cumulative effect that comes from your Essence caring about how a life goes. In other words, you are already reconciling your vastness of infinity while in finite form when you GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOUR EXISTENCE. When you care so much about how the next day will go for you, for your relationships, for your future, for your fellow humans, for the planet, for the animals, for life; when you care so much that it hurts, and you continue to care anyway, you have become the very heart of your infinite vastness. The aching and overwhelm you feel is because of how the body processes that vastness of caring. It is not quite designed to sustain that current of energy. This is why you find a teaching and teachers. Because you cannot simply leap into the vastness of your existence while in a body and expect to sustain that current of energy. It is an energy that is no different from what an Infinite Soul must sustain. And it will "burn up" the circuitry of you. The existential crisis comes in every lifetime for every Personality, and it is often ignored or blindly buried, but for the older soul, you embrace the hurting. You sit with it. You carry it. And you learn better how to sit with it and carry it so that it is transformed from hurting and into power, peace, and presence. Your teachers and your teachings help you to navigate, manage, and understand that this current of caring THIS MUCH about a person, about a life, yourself, a relationship, the future, the planet, etc is a POWER, not a burden. It is a responsibility, not an imposition. A choice, not an interference. The work you do in this single lifetime regarding what you care about is what propels your vastness of existence in infinity. We have told all of you that once you exist, you cannot unexist. This is true on all levels from your individual Personalities to your Roles in Essence and Essence, itself. However, you also cannot UN-CARE. Why do you think you exist through an entire Grand Cycle and into many more? Why do you think you "leave" Tao and return to cycles of incarnation through various species in different star systems and universes? Because you care. Because ALL OF IT MATTERS TO YOU. You cannot exist without caring. You cannot. It is one of only a few impossibilities. And so, in every lifetime, you come to a crisis point where you must learn how to care so much that it hurts, and then grow bigger still than that hurt. It does not matter how big or small the thing is that you care about. It does not matter how private and personal that thing is or how shared and public and grand that thing is. It is the caring that matters. How you live this life and navigate how you care is a microcosmic reflection of the evolution of your soul, of you AS a soul. Your Essence has no shame in the depth that it cares about you. You can practice unapologetically caring deeply for humanity, for life, for your relationship, for your well-being, etc. Whatever prompts your caring, even if it is confusing and hurts, is a piece of your vastness being expressed. Transform the experience of impending defeat and demoralizing into an empowerment that you shamelessly own as your right of existence. You need not run from defeat any longer. You need not question your value and point of existence when you care so deeply about something that is well beyond your control. You need not turn your caring into a liability that must be reduced or masked in anger or frustration. Care. That is all you need to do. Just care. Sometimes you can do something about that, and sometimes you cannot, but you can always care. Caring, like Existence, is a constant. Neither are dependent upon being all-powerful. When you do not know what to do, it can hurt. Let that sense of hurting be a reminder to care for yourself at that point. When you cannot be all powerful in helping those things you care about, you can always remember to include your self-care. It will not take away from the care you have for anything or anyone else. When you "care so much it hurts," it is because you have left yourself out of the equation of caring. WE WILL ADDRESS EACH OF YOU WITH A MESSAGE NOW THAT MAY TOUCH ON THE PATTERNS OF WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT ANN - The pattern we see for you is that you care deeply about being RELEVANT. We encourage you to continue to care about this. Care deeply about this. Expand your definition of it and carefully consider an update to what it means and what it looks like and how it can be nurtured. Your caring about being relevant is not a superficial concern. It is a desire to create and communicate and disseminate. You are not done saying what you have to say. It is okay to care about this. CONG - The pattern we see for you is that you care deeply about THE FUTURE. It is difficult to care so deeply about the future because it never arrives. It is always just out of reach, always in a vague state of potential and possibility. But that is why you care. You pay close attention to your choices, your direction, your focus, your priorities and the people who are a part of this because you are nurturing an empowered relationship of existence between the past, present, and future so that these co-exist in everything you do. LUCIANA - The pattern we see in you is that you care deeply about BEING SEEN. You care deeply about who you are and how you are and what that looks like to yourself and to others. This is not a shallow or shameful thing to care about. You are experimenting with SELF-REFLECTION. It is one thing to simply exist and BE, but quite another to SEE and BE SEEN. However vast you are, observation snaps you into form in some way and you are exploring all of the ways that you "snap into form" through your own eyes and the eyes of others, so you can better learn how to create the story of who you are, rather than let it be told by others. MAUREEN - The pattern we see in you is that you care deeply about BEING RIGHT. This can show up in combative ways within yourself and even around you, but that is because you are still exploring the concept on different levels. When we use the term "right," we use it to refer to an alignment with Truth, Love, and Beauty/Energy, such as RIGHT WORK, RIGHT ACTION. It matters deeply to you that you are Right, that you are in alignment with the highest values of this universe and how they play out in your life and the world. It is painful to sustain this sense of Being Right when there is so much "wrong," and so your fight can sometimes fall into being "correct" or being vindicated or being justified. Those are simply lower and more accessible ways of tapping into what you care about, but it is never about being correct or justified or vindicated. It is always a cry from within you to stand strong as a beacon of alignment with remembering what is True, what is Love, and what is Beautiful. To help clarify this for you, Maureen, it may be more fitting to say that you care deeply about RIGHT BEING, rather than Being Right. RACHEL - The pattern we can see in you is that you care deeply about WHERE TO STAND. This may seem to be a vague phrase, but it is quite specific. You care deeply about taking a position in your life, with other people, with your creativity, with your relationships, etc. in a way that profoundly represents the truth of your being. However, you are still trying to figure out what this truth of your being is. You cannot take a stand or hold a position until you feel you have a comfortable grasp what you know is true for you and about you. This exploration can leave you feeling as if you have no foundation upon which to stand or be in relation to others and your dreams. Give yourself the time and space to create that foundation. It matters to you to take a position that you trust and care about and that reflects your passion. It could be said that what you care about is the evolution of your passion and learning how to let that represent you in the world. SUSAN - What we can see in your patterns is that you care deeply about PRESERVATION. There is a deep desire within you to help repair, preserve, conserve, protect, serve, restore, etc. various ecosystems within your life and the lives of others. These "ecosystems" may be bodies, may be relationships, may be environmental, may be ideas, but it matters to you to care that these systems are noticed and nurtured and remembered and even pointed out for others to consider. We use the term "preservation" because it is matters to you that they last, that these systems carry you and others forward wherever that may be, but forward, regardless. Some of the general struggles you may have in your life may relate to your caring about preserving and restoring and repairing all of the systems that you know make a difference and need someone to heal these. UMA - From what we can see in your patterns is that you care deeply about BEING INCLUDED. You care so deeply about this that it hurts. It hurts when you feel excluded and it hurts to exclude and it hurts when you see others are excluded or exclude themselves. Any breakdown in a network of caring and creating is devastating, both in personal terms and in global terms. You know that Being Included must stand as a permanent invitation and vulnerability and you refuse to resign from upholding a state of inclusion for yourself and others. This does not mean you have no boundaries or that you will not say No, or hear someone say No. You know that inclusion cannot be forced. And that is why it can be painful when you must simply stand as an invitation and watch how it unfolds. BOBBY - What we can see as a pattern in you is that you care deeply about CONTRIBUTING. You are a giver. However guarded or isolated or open or involved you are with others and the world, it has always mattered to you what you GIVE. It is painful when you cannot give or when what you give is not enough or even too much or not what is wanted. But you continue to give when you can and how you can. The greatest gift you have found that you can give when you are out of everything and resources are low and even energy is low, is JOY. You give kindness, a smile, a joke, a tease, anything that could provoke a moment of joy. This ensures that you are contributing in some way, somehow, any how. It is baffling to you when others cannot seem to make that same effort, but it does not stop you. You care deeply about participating in life and are, quite frankly, in awe of life, and so you give as much life as you can. When you feel the shadow of defeat chasing after you, it is because you may have forgotten to give some of that life to yourself, or you have suddenly decided to grade yourself on just how much you are contributing. And finally, TROY - Your patterns reveal that what you care deeply about is INTEGRITY. Regardless of your passions and interests and paths, they are created from a deep caring for honesty, principles, decency, trust, etc. Every focus of activism or play or fight or communication is about upholding that Integrity. It is painful to see others undermine their integrity through hypocrisy or through compartmentalization or through denial. It is overwhelming and exhausting to monitor yourself and others in terms of calling out where integrity is threatened or in danger of collapsing. From animal rights to human rights to the work you do with us to your interest in movies and music and even gaming, the motivation and passion of focus comes from that deep caring for Integrity and where that is represented in art, communication, humanity, etc. For each of you, we can continue our discussion with you individually in other formats regarding what we describe as what we see you care so deeply about. We know you may have questions or comments regarding these words from us. We also suggest that you consider these to be only words from us, not conclusive statements. The words we shared today about you are from our perception and assessment, not from a static record. You may care about other things that stand out to you far more than what we see today. Let yourself care about what you care about and allow it to be a strength for you, not a shame or liability or pain. Let the hurt be a reminder to care about yourself, but know that some of that hurt is only your growing pains. We must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

    ENERGY REPORT: August 2018

    Re-reading this report, I am unsure if I have actually begun to listen to myself and cut through the bullshit. This is because 1) Everything they describe there actually happened to me over the course of the past two years, rather profoundly, so I'm currently living the results of many versions of myself "coming home", and it is intense, and 2) I am caught up in a situation that is making me feel very lost and insecure and not sure what is true, where I am subject to a lot of negative self-talk and worry, so...yeah. Just have to tough that one out, I guess. Otherwise, how's everyone doing? I myself feel like I'm going between the poles of Doldrum-y Dead Zone and Jumping Out Of My Skin In My Room Alone With Anxiety. They're quite related. HAHA I AM FINE but very wigged out?
  14. Hello. Other than Michael, there are a couple of frameworks re evolution that i've come across viz. Spiral dynamics with its memes & Jeff Green's Evolutionary Astrology (E.A.). I think E.A's consensus 3 would equal michael's latter stages of a young soul or spiral dynamics orange meme. Can Michael validate this and shed some light on how these other systems echo the Michael Teachings? Many thanks
  15. Omg Yes!!! Im so excited to finish it this time - I totally fell ofd the map before Thank you Troy!!!
  16. Last week
  17. @Troy @Kasia Thanks to both of you. I am well aware of the huge amount of transfer of sessions and work when TLE moved here, and that formatting entries at that time was not prioritized - and still is not something than can be prioritized. I would not assume or expect that to be done either. When I see looooong sessions like this one, and such a great session too, I had to point to that this particular session could really need formatting when possible of course. There has been a few sessions that I wish I could have done some formatting on while I was reading the sessions anyway, but since I don't have access to that I can't help. I hope I didn't sound as complaining or demanding, it wasn't my intention. I know team TLE is busy working in the background and then it is the tremendous amount of really great channeling work from you Troy, plus administrating this website and more. Of course everything can't have the focus all the time. It is a milestone that three volumes are going to be published and I am really thankful for being part of this community and having access to so much information, knowledge and wisdom. Kasia, I can come back to it and giving it a try (sending you a private message with it) when I have more time. Right now is too much on my plate. XOXO
  18. Truth, Love, or Energy is a variation of the game Truth or Dare that utilizes the overleaf cards. The game is for 2 or more players. Note that trust and consent are required for this game; players may not use this game to coerce or manipulate others into compromising or illicit situations. Setup Players sit in a circle and a dealer shuffles the cards. The cards are placed face-down in the middle of the players. The player to the left of the dealer begins the game. Simple Version On their turn, the player draws a card from the pile. Cards are either Truth (Expression axis), Love (Inspiration axis), or Energy (Action axis). Assimilation axis and Wild cards allow the player to choose either Truth, Love, or Energy. If the player draws a Truth card, they must truthfully answer a question. If the player draws a Love card, they must say/do something positive about/for another player (with consent from that player). If the player draws an Energy card, they must successfully act out or perform a dare. The player hands the card to the person on their right, who determines the specific question, task, or dare. This person hands the card back to the player after they have attempted or declined the turn. If the player succeeds, they keep their card, which is scored as a point. If they decline or are unsuccessful, they must return the card to the pile. Play then continues to the left. The game ends either when the stack has run out of cards or when the players decide to end the game. The winner is the player with the most cards (i.e. successful turns). The game may also be played without the use of scoring. Advanced Version In the advanced version, the player draws a card as normal. Along with the card’s axis, however, the overleaf of the card determines a specific category of task. If the player draws a wild card, they still decide Truth, Love, or Energy, but the person to their right decides the overleaf. The person to the right still determines the specific question, task, or dare, but must adhere to the categories as outlined below. Soul Age – relating to memory or knowledge. Role – relating to an activity, service, or job/activity. Goal – relating to a challenge, goal, or taste. Mode – relating to relationships, affection, or touch. Attitude – relating to opinion, philosophy, or sight. Centering – relating to repetition, habit, rotation, or sound. Body Type – relating to physical appearance, state, talent, or balance. Chief Feature – relating to fear or smell. For example, if a player draws a Soul Age card, the person to their right might ask them about a childhood memory (Truth), recall a fond memory of another player (Love), or be asked to recite the alphabet backwards without error (Energy). Tasks may also reference the overleaf directly. In the example above, the person to the right may also ask the player how they experience their Soul Age and Level (Truth), to guess the Soul Age and Level of another player (Love), or to act out a Soul Age stereotype (Energy). Three-Deck Version If all three design styles of the Overleaf Playing Cards are available, players may opt to combine these and play the three-deck version. In this version, the three decks are shuffled together into a single pile and placed in the middle of the players. When the player draws a card, however, the card’s style determines if it is Truth, Love, or Energy rather than the card’s axis. Classic-style cards act as Truth cards, Soul Spectrum (rainbow)-style cards act as Love cards, and Midnight (black)-style cards act as Energy cards. Wild cards and overleaf categories (as applicable) remain the same.

    Kurtle's Dream Thread

    I had a busy dream night but low recall again. What I do remember: 1. An earlier dream had Emma Gonzalez in it. I don't recall the details, but she was in my backyard and in a neighborhood that vaguely resembled mine. She was working on an important project I was also loosely involved in. But we did not ever meet, and I only watched from afar. She seemed to be rather stressed and exasperated that something or some group was not working as planned. 2. One part of a dream showed the sky was extremely smoky from nearby forest fires. Irl BC is under pressure and air pollution from a lot of these fires right now. Our Augusts seem to be permanently laced with smoke now- likely thanks to Global Warming. In the dream though, the smoke was so bad you couldn't see more than 60 meters away. Despite my parents' worries and concerns, I went outside anyways- but I met my deceased cat, Whiskey, out there on our driveway. In the dream I knew she was dead, but I didn't know it was a dream & me and my cat actually talked in English. I don't remember about what- but it was casual. I also scratched her around the ears and back, and she even responded like she would irl when I scratched the right vs wrong places. It was very nice. 3. My dad and I were talking in a later dream about the Platforms of each century. Only it was laced with weird bible scripture and religious connotation. He mentioned something like the Platform of the 22nd Century being about "Aragon's something or other". I don't recall the last word. Dream me did not get what that meant & wanted to respond with my own theory that the 22nd Century would focus on Intelligence- but either did not, or did but was dissuaded by my dad.

    Last Will & Testament

    I just saw this post. I thought I’d add my question from a few years ago that Diane mentioned. Can you solve the mystery of who wrote the Shakespeare plays? There are many theories out there about the historical person Shakespeare not being educated, “proved” by his children being illiterate, and that someone like the Earl of Oxford really wrote the plays. MICHAEL: The persona of "William Shakespeare" existed only fictitiously, though as a thoroughly-fleshed out fiction. MICHAEL: The fragment of the same name was real, but the persona was not his. MARTHA: That is the rumor MICHAEL: The speculation and rumor is catching up with the truth, but it was not an elaborate conspiracy, but more a product of intentional misinformation that was never questioned. MARTHA: the Earl of Oxford, Christopher Marlowe, Edward DeVere, and others have been mentioned as candidates MARTHA: Was it just one author? MICHAEL: For the most part, yes. MARTHA: I saw a documentary recently that made it seem like it would have been fairly well known at the time that it was a fake persona MICHAEL: That would be valid, as far as we can see, and it was of no significance to most who the writer was, though those who wanted to know, could. MICHAEL: It would be similar to your concern for the real name of Vanilla Ice. MARTHA: oh lord MARTHA: that one I know MARTHA: So, can you see who?? MICHAEL: At the time, it was speculated that the real William would either not know, or not mind, as he was not particularly bright. MICHAEL: It is valid that the fragment known as "Edward" was behind these writings, motivated by a crippling arrogance and self-deprecation, volatile streak, and deep interest in upholding a position of patronage, he gave rise to these writings in a way that his position would not be threatened by the success or failure of these, and could be served by his own investments. MARTHA: interesting! thank you MICHAEL: We doubt that the mainstream acceptance of the authorship will be contested to any meaningful extent, but this Sage-Cast Scholar from Entity 2 of Cadre 1 does not mind. MARTHA: Ha, he IS a loudmouth, seen that before
