Janet posted a topic in Ning Archive - Ask MichaelThis question was originally posted by NTRAIN on 11/24/08. So, I've read a bit about Michael, and I have a few questions that I haven't been able to find elsewhere on the boards. My apologies if these have already been answered. According to Michael, what's the deal with animals? Do they have souls? Are there different levels like there are in humans? What about differences between species? How about plants and microorganisms? The world's population is estimated to grow to about 9.5 billion over the next 40 years. Most of the growth is expected to come from in the poorest and least educated countries. Presumably, these new persons will be younger souls. Is this correct? Is there any reasoning behind why there should be this influx of younger souls? Isn't the trend supposed to be an overall maturation of human souls? What does Michael have to say about artificial intelligence? If we were able to someday create viable AI that was indistinguishable from that of a human, would there be some kind of soul involved in that AI? Is real AI just impossible because of some limitation in that regard? FROM MICHAEL: Consciousness that is not committed to a sentient species for an incarnational cycle are free to explore and experience all forms of existence. All who are committed to a sentient species for an incarnational cycle already explored to their "hearts' content" before making that commitment. Outside of sentience, so to speak, physical life on a planet could be described as having 7 Kingdoms, or Levels. Consciousness can explore those levels/kingdoms sequentially and eventually commit to a sentient species of that particular planet. In lower kingdoms, consciousness is not quite differentiated and moves in masses (Compositions/Arrangements/Spheres/Rings), whereas the higher kingdoms then begin the process of more differentiated groups of consciousness (Cadres/Entities/Cadences). In the lower kingdoms that include such categories as Plants, Insects, Birds, Fish, Reptiles, and Lower Mammals, consciousness explores as "hive souls." This is often literally seen as hives, fields, herds, schools, and flocks, etc. Bodies move as a group and consciousness moves easily among all of those bodies with little differentiation. References to "devas, faeiries, and nature spirits" are referring to these forms of consciousness. In higher kingdoms that include high levels of intelligence, emotion, complex tool use and the raising of young, such as can be found in many domestic animals, the consciousness becomes far more differentiated, often down to a single Cadence (group of 7 fragments of one role), and will incarnate at least 7 lifetimes in that species. The higher mammals will incarnate as intimately with a sentient species (and most often with the same sentient fragment over time) as possible so as to learn from that sentient species and determine whether to commit to that sentient species, or not. The 7 Kingdoms are relative to the development of the Chakras/Centers that will be required for Sentience, if that is eventually chosen. The 7 Kingdoms/Levels are: Oceanic/Mineral (Instinctive/root) Plant/Vegetable (Higher Moving/sacral) Insects (Moving/solar plexus) Fish/Reptiles (Emotional/heart) Birds (Intellectual/throat) Lower Mammals (Higher Emotional/brow) Higher Mammals (Higher Intellectual/crown) The growth of the Human Sentient population is almost to its maximum in terms of body/essence ratio. There are nearly as many bodies on the planet at this time as there are fragments still physically incarnating. We doubt it will reach over 9 billion, unless there is a spike in the number of Essences incarnating in simultaneous bodies within the same time frame. The majority of Essences incarnating as Human are now within the Mature Soul Cycle, so any "new persons" would most likely be Mature. "Artificial Intelligence" is just as capable of sustaining Sentience as any "organic biology." There are several instances in your universe of Artificial Intelligence being Sentient and valid as its own Species. It is often the goal of one species to create/design a new species for sustainable sentience. Humans intend to do this and, as part of that process, continue to explore the fears and fascination along with that collective goal.
Ask Michael Live Chat September 7, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley GeraldineB: We are going to be rigid on time constraints, trying to keep each person's session to a maximum of 15 min. I will be notifying Mikey at the 10 min mark. I would recommend that EVERYONE add as a caveat to the beginning of their Q -- Keeping this short enough for this format, blah blah blah CocteauBoy: If you guys see a great question that you wouldn't mind taking up more time than usual, please feel free to quickly chime in that you wouldn't mind. I'll ask michael to note for anyone if the question would require a long response. 12:27 DianeHB: Hello Michael. May we have a fuller description of the Venusian Body Type Nature? MEntity: We are not clear as to what to compare for a "fuller description," but we can expand on this subject for you to compare to what you wish. DianeHB: Yes, just expand on the subject. :) MEntity: The Venusian Nature is one that invites and attracts affection. It is of the more sensual of body types, and depends greatly upon physical contact for its sense of presence. The Nature can tend to be quite charming, warm, and even if the person is not consciously comfortable with touch, this Nature will likely invite it. Most fragments tend to feel quite immediately comfortable with MEntity: Venusian Body Types, barring other factors that might override that Nature. MEntity: This Nature struggles between its inclination to be so inviting and accepting, but is one of the harshest in its struggle for accepting itself. MEntity: One of the reasons this Nature is so inviting, warm, and affectionate is because of this. MEntity: In much the same way that the funniest people can also be of the saddest, so can the most attractive and inviting of people be the loneliest. MEntity: Their inclination to allow attraction (which is not exclusive to physical attraction, but all or any level of attraction) is because the Venusian Nature learns to know that beauty is not superficial or temporary, and is often relative. MEntity: Ironically, as their Nature allows them to recognize beauty in many people and things, they can have a very difficult time recognizing this in themselves. DianeHB: (yearns to know?) MEntity: And so this nature is two-fold in that its expression of inclusion and acceptance is a way to show others that they are beautiful, while also generating this experience of inclusion and acceptance from others toward themselves so that it can be a mutual experience. MEntity: Of course, this can be an entire topic in itself. We responded as best we could with no parameter or direction. There is plenty more to say. 12:48:19 PM tkmppi: In Indian astrology a person's "chart" may influence another person: to take a random example, one of the indications of a fallen Moon in the 11th house is that "his eldest sibling leads a tedious life or dies early." On the other hand there are antidotes for planetary afflictions, in this case, chanting the Moon mantra 11 000 times, or wearing a pearl. Would the elder sibling's life become less tedious etc., if his/her younger sibling wears a pearl or chants mantras? MEntity: Tuija, we have never seen that the wearing of a pearl would by proxy alleviate the challenges of another person, unless the other person was somehow challenged by the weight of carrying that pearl in the first place, of course. If it were only that easy to help another. We can say that if the pearl is somehow a reminder to be of help to the other person, then the symbol can be effective. MEntity: Chanting is a powerful means of transformation and effective change for the self, but has little effect on overriding the challenges that another person may have, unless, again, the changes in yourself are actively used to help another. MEntity: There is no validity to removing or adding to another person's life any pain or pleasure using only a symbol or chant. MEntity: Does this answer your question? tkmppi: Yes, that's what I've thought 01:00:48 PM BrianW: Could you please describe the alternate timeline in the 1980s which resulted in nuclear war. Specifically, what was different in those timeline that did not occur in this timeline, what month / year did the war go nuclear, what areas were affected, survived or were unaffected, and what has since recovered, and to what degree? MEntity: The most important difference was that the mistake was not caught in that timeline around November of 1983. The attacks came between Russia and the United States due to confusions regarding poor communication of simulated events. Most of the Eastern United States was decimated, with expansion of attacks ranging between all of the U.S. and Russia, and with fallout affecting all of the planet. MEntity: Australia was one of the few places unaffected, and came to be a refuge for many from Asia, while South America came to be refuge for many from Africa, North America, and Europe. MEntity: Alaska came to be refuge for many from Western United States, as well. MEntity: Migration back to homelands have begun for those who have survived or are of later generations of survivors. MEntity: Because this was eventually recognized as a mistake, great strides have been made in rebuilding relations that would never let this happen again. The population of the planet was reduced by approximately 40% overall, so was reduced to approximately 2.5 billion. MEntity: Most life has returned to farming and village-based culture, with communications returned, anti-radiation treatments available to all, and a world economy that is mostly based in barter. MEntity: We can look at this in more detail in further exchanges. There is much to see, and difficult for us to sort through in a short amount of time. 01:28:00 PM ViP1: If humanity succeeds in developing an artificial host intelligence that can sustain sentience, would a Design incarnating into that structure begin incarnating at Infant soul age? And what are the probabilities that this (development of true artificial sentience) will happen within the next 10 years? MEntity: If a new Design takes up a host, it will always begin as Infant Soul. However, when it comes to Sentient Artificial Intelligence as host, it can often be quite appealing to a displaced Design, assuming the body types are of similarity or interest, which would then take up incarnations from wherever fragments were in progress. MEntity: Artificial Intelligence created by Humans that is capable of hosting Sentience is likely within 50 years, but not likely within 10. Within 10 to 20 years, Artificial Intelligence will mimic Sentience to a high degree, but not host sentience. Over that period of time, hive souls may be of interest, and the depth of relationship with Artificial Intelligence could be on par with that of any child, or domestic animal companion. MEntity: The level of intelligence, or the access to knowledge, is not the same thing as having the capacity for emotional depth, empathy, and self-awareness, but once the programs are in place for self-motivated, self-regulating, experiential, exponential learning and problem solving, then it is a fairly short time before capable of hosting Sentience. 01:42:11 PM juni: While reading, I found this: juni: December 7, 2000 juni: Topic: Reality Shifts juni: [Clavis] Hello Michael. Is it possible to physically enter a parallel universe? To disappear from this parallel and enter another parallel, even meet our parallel selves physically? juni: [Michael_Entity] No..It is possible to do this within the same timeline (Future meets Past and vice versa), but we have not seen this occur inter-dimensionally. Some of your futures contain the ability to physically VIEW Parallels, but beyond that are obvious limitations. juni: Can you please expand on this answer about timelines, regarding meeting a future/past parallel self and how this happens/works? If there is time, can you comment about those futures that are able to view parallels and how this is accomplished? MEntity: Currently, one can view other parallels by using the imagination. In many futures, the capacity to harness the imagination (and dreams and thoughts) as a means of shared viewing is possible. In those futures, this knowledge, along with other breakthroughs in tangible consciousness, has led to breakthroughs in interdimensional resonance. This resonance can then be extrapolated into imagery that can be viewed. MEntity: This is related to what might now be explored as quantum entanglement. MEntity: As for the past and future meeting, this can happen by either "folding space/time" in a way that creates a meeting point which cannot be crossed, but can interact, or through what one might consider the familiar idea of time travel. MEntity: In instances of folding, it seems to be dependent upon access to the same line of familiar consciousness at this point. In other words, a person can only connect with his or her own past. MEntity: It is quite limited in its usefulness and implementation. MEntity: In terms of time travel as is most often understood, it is also of limited usefulness and implementation once it came to be realized that one cannot travel directly into one's own timeline in either direction, but that the act of travel, itself, means either the creation of a new timeline, or (more often) a travel to a different timeline. 02:02:58 PM Marry: Hey Michael, i would like to ask if there is a "smallest thing" in this universe (on the physical plane) or if we are living and perceiving the world in between two infinities, one getting smaller and smaller, the other one bigger and bigger (which is basically one infinity of size in general)? If the time is given, could you elaborate on what is bigger than what is currently seen as the biggest structure in the universe? And on the other hand, what is smaller than the things science currently knows as the smallest particles? MEntity: There is a smallest distance and it is currently known as the Planck, which is at the scale one may "measure" a singularity. In terms of scale and size in the universe, we think the biggest thing would be the universe, itself, which might be described as the Physical Context. It is the space within which "everything" exists that is made of matter. MEntity: In both instances, the biggest and smallest "things" are distances/space. MEntity: This is because that is the nature of the Physical Universe: separation, fragmentation, fragments. MEntity: Anything smaller than what is considered Planck length would be inversion that flips one into the next Universe. MEntity: Universes are "stacked" together in groups of 12, and are connected through these black holes, if you will. This is how they relate to one another and communicate. MEntity: Of course, if one were to flip into the other universe through one of these, "you" would no longer exist as you know it, but be "turned into" part of the fabric of that universe. MEntity: There is an economy of exchange that is in effect among the living universes stacked together, and those black holes are key to how that works. MEntity: So there is no infinitesimally small object, and no infinitely huge object. There is are tiny particles that have incredibly small distances between them, and massive structures that are held within even greater space, but there are caps to physical universe. 02:22:33 PM JanaK: You have said repeatedly that Essence Recognition evolves Essence. How does this work? I can understand how Karma evolves Essence, and I can see how Essence Recognition feels amazing, but would like to hear how that evolves Essence. JanaK: (i am referring to your statement that there are two ways for Essence to evolve) MEntity: Essence Recognition is exactly that: the recognition of a greater context in which one exists. This is not the same thing as liking someone, or feeling good, or feeling close, though recognition can certainly bring those states, but this is about truly recognizing the validity of one's existence beyond the obvious. When one recognizes this, there is evolution. The evolution comes MEntity: because one is no longer blind or distracted by initial limitations. MEntity: For simplistic purposes, imagine this: MEntity: there are two ways Recognition can work in terms of evolving you - 1) imagine you are in a closed box. If you based your context of existence only on this, you will live and die in that box. Only upon exiting this box through death will your consciousness expand because now it knows that there is more than the box. Now, imagine that you recognized this while in the box, and found a way out. Your life just expanded, and your experiential range just expanded, and your context of existence just expanded. MEntity: In these cases, Recognition can happen while in the box, or after exiting it. In either case, evolution occurs. MEntity: 2) imagine you heard about a great costume party and dressed up in your best idea for that costume party. Now imagine that you have arrived and others are also in costume, but each had different ideas about what the theme was for the party. If you only walk around as if the party is themed on your own idea, you will miss much. However, if you explore and share, you will learn a great deal about the various themes. But imagine if you recognize that there is actually someone behind the costume, and you recognize this. MEntity: Recognition of the source of the costume and theme means expanding upon one's existence in a way that brings evolution, rather than simple submersion into party themes. MEntity: These are highly simplistic analogies, but they will work. MEntity: In short, recognizing your existence beyond the obvious, and recognizing the existence of another beyond the obvious, naturally provokes evolution. Kurt: Hey Michael, like Diane i'd like a description of the jovial body type nature. Perhaps with just a small tidbit of when the jovial nature is unhealthy or imbalanced. Of course within time constraints. MEntity: The Jovial Body Type is gravitational in Nature. Fragments tend to be drawn to those who are Jovial for different reasons than that of the Venusian. While Venusians are attractive in terms of intimacy and affection, Jovial is attractive in terms of confidence and permission. MEntity: At the positive end of this gravity, there is a confidence that is contagious and inspiring, bringing out a sense of ownership and responsibility for one's self-esteem. MEntity: At the negative end of this gravity, there is a greedy entitlement for being the center of attention, or presumption that the Jovial can speak for others or AT them. MEntity: So the Jovial Nature is excellent at being a source of expression for the self and for others, particularly for others who do not or will not speak up for themselves, but at the more challenging end of the spectrum, the Jovial can presume that what they have to say or express is inherently of value, interest, and meaning. MEntity: So the Jovial Nature is excellent at being a source of expression for the self and for others, particularly for others who do not or will not speak up for themselves, but at the more challenging end of the spectrum, the Jovial can presume that what they have to say or express is inherently of value, interest, and meaning. MEntity: Of course, there is more to say on this subject, as well, but we must conclude here for today. The channel has pushed as far as he can tonight. Good evening to each of you. MEntity: Goodbye, for now. Note: The last two signed up will have the opportunity to go first next Ask Michael if they wish -- ClaireC and Tyrone
