Michael Speaks -- Open Floor Chat July 10, 2011 [Diane_H] What is the cause of autism/asperger's syndrome (a milder form of autism) from your perspective? [MEntity] From what we can see, Diane, as these are syndromes, there are multiple causes that come together to generate the symptoms that are called "autism" or "asperger's syndrome." As this tends to be a developmental syndrome, we think it is partially explained, in many instances, by the Goal of Re-evaluation for the Personality. It is simply one of the many ways that an Essence can create a Personality with a re-evaluatory aim for the lifetime. There are lifetimes that are physical re-evaluations, emotional re-evaluations, and intellectual re-evaluations. There are a multitude of ways for helping to bring that Goal into focus for a lifetime, and these conditions are ways to do that. [Diane_H] Are they generally planned before birth? - the syndrome [MEntity] With physical "causes" that may be difficult to pinpoint, but range from genetics, to deficiencies in diet from the mother, to post-trauma, to vaccination issues (which are legitimate concerns, regardless of claims for safety), to simply being slow development, to being complete misdiagnoses. The Goal of Re-evaluation appears to make up approximately 40% of the legitimate cases, with physical "causes" ranging across the suggestions above; with 30% being slow development phases, and 30% being complete misdiagnoses due to the methods of expression that a Personality may implement that are simply not satisfying to those around him or her. Those relative to the Goal of Re-evaluation would have been planned, but the others are developmental, and not always planned. We do not have the terminology through this channel to convey a specific response, but we think that the legitimate cases, regardless of original causes, would be dealing with synaptic or neural issues that can be treated. [Oscar] I would like to know if Lloyd Pye's theories have any ground. As such, are some hominid races (pre-Homo Sapiens) still alive on Earth today, and what were the races of the parents of the so-called Starchild, of which he has the skull in his possession? [MEntity] This Scholar known as "Lloyd" appears to have some footing in his theories, and though there are flaws and embellishments that are unintentional, we think it is worth exploring for the sake of concept. We do not see any of the "pre-homo sapiens" at this time. We also think the label of "star child" is a misnomer. [Brian_W] Hi Michael. The term "subtle energy" has been used quite frequently lately and many of us are curious, from a physical standpoint, what frequency and energy range does it fall under on the electromagnetic spectrum for us to detect and harness it? Does it propagate on, parallel to, or perpendicular to the existing electromagnetic spectrum? [MEntity] We may fall short again in terminology through this channel, but we can say that subtle energies fall just beyond the range of what you would call Electric and Magnetic Fields and frequencies. At this point, we know of no reliable means for detecting these without a living system involved, such as the musculature responses of a human body, which convert these into something observable, and without considering the concept of a empty space, or a vacuum in the calculations. We do think it is valid to consider subtle energies as being a kind of "vertical" energy vs the "horizontal" energy of observable energy. All subtle energy would require conversion, if harnessing or directing it were to be an aim. We are doing our best to convey the details through this channel, and we would suggest continuing to ask these questions in different ways at different times to help in generating a clearer picture. [Maureen] I have 3 planets (Sun, Venus, Mercury) in my 12th house. It is often described as being the house of isolation, hospitals, i.e., retreats of any kind, BUT I find this incongruent with the overall description of what it means to be “above the horizon”, usually pointing to “exposure” of sorts, for any planet placement. What is Michael’s take on this? What is the “true” meaning of the 12th house in Astrology? [MEntity] We would not qualify our response as clarifying the "true" meaning of the 12th House of a Zodiac, but we can say that it is A truth. As Astrology is a system of symbols, the flexibility of meaning and "truth" can accommodate a great many perspectives, maturities, and contexts. Our perspective of the 12th House, in terms of the Natal Zodiac, tends to be that this is where issues of collective inheritance comes in, with the planets emphasizing how these would be brought through the Personality. By "collective inheritance" we mean that which is a collection of imbalances, ideals, woundings, and/or patterns that are relative to a group of past Personalities of your Essence (past lives) or relative to those who your Essence intends to include as part of the current life. For those who lean toward an emphasis of Healing within the lifetime, either of the self or others, there can be a tendency for planets to populate this House. It could be called "The House of Healing," for that matter. When the Sun is present, we would think this is relative to SELF; with Venus present, it would indicate realms of Intimacy; and with Mercury present, it might indicate the realms of Communication. Each of those areas may come with built-in challenges that prompt a development of techniques and methods for Healing. This is a highly simplistic response, but a good start for consideration. [AnnH] I've been observing a great deal of divisiveness on many different levels. In the US overall, on my job (administration vs. faculty/staff), among friends, and in the MT community. Is this the tidy up from the June platform, or the movement into Pragmatist in July (sliding to Skeptic/Cynic), or just what I'm focused on? [MEntity] The emphasis of collective energy has shifted toward the Attitude of the year, which we see as Pragmatist. The first phases of emphasis tend to bring up the Negative Pole, and in this case, issues relative to perspectives rooted in Dogma are going to surface. The means through which to secure Dogma appear to be through the use of Cynicism and Skepticism, as Pragmatist perspectives slide into those. This means that some securing of Dogma will come in the form of Denigration and Suspicion. This is being played out currently in the United States over the "debt ceiling" and the divisive dogmatic maneuvers of those involved with that. In short: it is "not you." It is the world, in general, and everyone who is participating in the world in any way is going to find exposure to their own, or others', Dogma. The moment you notice another person or group as having a problem with their perspective because of their strict adherence to one acceptable pattern, we would suggest, first, exploring whether this is noticed for the sake of bringing to light your own Dogmas. That is not always the case, of course, but it is a healthy pause to make in the process of interpretation. We will have more to say about this, and suggestions for solutions, when Troy posts our Energy Report. [Geraldine] Due to some fairly fundamental differences between some parallels on earth, are there some Energy Rings that only incarnate into those parallels after they've become very different? Do all Essences in the same Energy Ring incarnate into all of the same parallels for a shared experience? [MEntity] Because all of one Design, or in fact, all within an entire Universe, begin "together," there is ultimately that "trunk" that will bind all of us. No matter how many branches will come from that trunk, ALL of us will share at least that primary binding/winding of realities that are similar enough or the same. However, there are no rules to the variations of branching, and one Entity, one Cadre, one Energy Ring, and any combination, can branch off into its own experimentations, with no other fragments involved at all, or at least not involved in any meaningful way. By "not involved in any meaningful way" we mean that your Essences are vast in their capacity for being present in any parallel at any time, so if, say, an Entity wants to explore one extremely experimental version of a timeline, it can appear to be populated by as many as necessary, but these would, in "reality," be props. There are multiple, solid versions of timelines for your cycles of incarnation by the time your Essence cycles off. Parallels exist up to and through the Causal. We have parallel versions of ourselves, as well. However, by this Plane, these versions become accounted for, and become a part of the integration process before moving to the higher planes. If it were not for these parallel versions, Entities would not have the opportunity for exploring the 6th and 7th Soul Ages. For instance, there is a parallel version of our relationship with you where we are incarnated as Transcendental, and you are a part of our audience there. In short: yes, there are many variations for how an Entity, Cadre, Energy Ring etc. cycle off, and part of the progress through the Astral and Causal Planes is the recollection of those variations. [Bobby] You've mentioned that the Chernobyl incident was one where alien intervention occurred. Did the recent Fukushima incident also precipitate such an intervention? If so, what sort of interaction is taking place? [MEntity] The Chernobyl event was one that included prevention, with some amount of hope that this would help move nuclear development down in priority, as it is quite unstable as a resource on a planet with shifting crusts. The impending destruction at Fukushima, however, is not being prevented, and is, as far we can see, even being encouraged, as this may end up being one of the "hard lessons" that caretakers may consider necessary to allow, much like eventually allowing the child to burn his hand so that the danger is fully comprehended. There are no interventions at this time, that we can see, at least. [jesuislulu] After researching about the more personal nature of Triads from my last POF session I came across a question regarding working groups....I cribbed this question from the Library as it resonated with information from previous sessions regarding my times in the Mystery Schools..... SO. Regarding your description of working groups as “a configuration of fragments working on esoteric themes begun in Alexandrine schools….,” this struck a cord with me. Could you elaborate a bit more and I’m not asking for details, but can you confirm whether I am part of such a group and if so, what its esoteric theme is? [MEntity] Yes, your Essence is part of such a Working Group: The Owls, who focus on a form of constant and persistent questioning until "satisfying" answers are collected. Owls may be associated with the sound of "hoo," but this Working Group asks "why." [MariLynn] there has been a recent trial decision in the Casey Anthony case, and the drama of it seemed to captivate the entire US, perhaps beyond, and I was wondering if this woman did have something to do with her daughter's death, as in guilt but, what can we take away from this drama, ie. what can be the "bigger lesson" for people? [MEntity] We cannot answer definitively whether this Artisan killed her Sage child, though we do see some record of awareness of from the Artisan that indicates her presence at the time. We cannot answer definitively because this is a Karmic issue that does not allow for access until the ribbons are burned, or at least those Essences involved are done locking down those records. When Karma is involved, particularly when it is still active, either in formation or balancing, the records are "locked down," so to speak, because to relay any details about a Karmic situation via any method other than one's own Essence, can incur Karma. Giving an intentional or an unintentional "heads up" about Karmic Ribbons can alter the entire dynamic of a lifetime for many involved. And while we would not be in danger of this through answering your question for you, we still cannot answer that question until those records are clear. There is no "big lesson" in the drama that has unfolded for the public, other than one that each chooses to interpret from the scenarios as one plays out "what if" or "if I were..." games with speculation, but we can say that this case symbolizes the growing shift of maturity away from glamor and fame for sake of glamor and fame, and the growing disgust with such seemingly blatant displays. [tkmppi] Do others of the 9 Pillars have 7 alternatives as True Home does (wilderness, ocean, etc., with the usual M math I presume)? If so, what are they? [MEntity] It is valid that each of the True Work, Play, Study, Love, Core, and Gift can be delineated as having 7 categories for each, but these would not be as personalized as our choosing more specific terms from within those categories. For instance, True Work *could* be described as being the same as your Goal, but this would lend no insight into that specific Life Task, or methods for implementing that Life Task, even as it may fall under the broader umbrella of Growth, Acceptance, etc. Or True Play might be understood as relative to your Attitude, and your means of forming Expression; or True Study as relative to your Mode, and your means of igniting Inspiration. True Love tends to be relative to the Level within Soul Age. True Core tends to be relative to Soul Age. And True Gift tends to be relative to Chief Features (or the means through which one transcends or transforms the Chief Features). We can delineate these in more detail at another time, but this is a start. [Jana_K] I have been watching a programme called Catastrophe on Discovery Science. It seems like the fact that life is possible on earth is only thanks to seemingly endless amount of "accidents" that have happened. Collisions of a specific type, in a specific order, with specific consequences, eruptions, freezes and so on. It seems like an awful lot of coincidence, because all of these events in the order they have happened have lead to making conditions for life possible. In addition to that, our planet is in a number of "Goldilock zones". Again - more and more unlikely coincidences. It seems orchestrated. Is it? By whom exactly? How? [MEntity] The means for which "life" is possible seems far more profound when the "perfect scenarios" are retrofitted to what is living at the time, but it is often the other way around that "life" begins. Or put another way, the definitions of "life" are often limited by the lifeforms defining it, and what is "perfect" for that lifeform is not perfect for another. Life exists in many forms in many ways, and the "Goldilocks Zone" for humans is very different from those who are silicon-based, for instance. What tends to happen in the creation of a Universe, from what we gather, is that the initial process is rather random in its formation, but eventually patterns emerge, much like a painter might splatter paint across a canvas and eventually find images in that pattern. The dominant patterns that begin to form throughout the universe then become the media through which "life" and Sentience will choose to evolve. In other Universes, some patterns may be more prominent than the carbon- and silicon- dominant universe we exist within. There are three dominant bases in this universe, but we do not have the proper word for conveying the third, in addition to carbon and silicon. There are more than three, overall, but those are the dominant bases. In other words, BECAUSE those bases developed as the most prominent pattern, Sentience used it, rather than the bases being determined, and then the universe having to shape itself around those parameters. [Paulyboy] How have other traveling species managed interstellar travel? Propulsion seems to have many difficulties around it (time dilation, energy requirements towards the speed of light, sheer distance, etc.), so perhaps bending space/time and "hopping" may be more the route to look into (I'm not really sure). What directions, openings, ideas, leads, principles, etc. would be a good aim for further opening of exploration and questioning of this topic in the future, given the vocabulary of the channel? I'd aim for the schematics and construction manual for a warp drive or TARDIS (/chuckle), but I doubt this would be quite the setting for that. Thanks! [MEntity] The concepts of folding space are valid, though not quite understood when put into current paradigms dependent upon propulsions. The "folding" of space that is used by many species includes the disassembling of matter from one point in space to the reassembling of matter in another. When the emphasis of exploration focuses on this method, the cascading of possibilities and potential might then lead to farther off-planet explorations. [Paulyboy] Sort of a teleportation type technology? [MEntity] It is a variation on that concept, yes, but rather than either a "beaming" or a "folding" acting as separate concepts, they come together. In most instances that we can see, the "beaming" comes first in development, and then the "folding." We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you.
Ask Michael - January 7, 2018 MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. ***QUEUE IS NOW OPEN*** Crystal: Hi and happy new year Michaels! Can you comment on the possibility/ies for a woman president of the US in 2020? I feel we should choose one! MEntity: It is now 100% possible for a fragment of female identity to be President of the United States. As for the probabilities that this will occur in 2020, it currently stands at around 88%. Crystal: Hooray! MEntity: Keep in mind that being female does not guarantee enlightenment. A female candidate is likely to be pushed and supported by the less inclusive and anti-progressive Party, as well. Pat: Good evening Michael! When a human in a Bonding Agreement adopts an adult animal, that body was probably hosting another Entity Mix previously, so all the experiences will not be applicable for the new “inhabitant”. How is it solved, so that the new Consciousness doesn’t miss out on life-long experience relating to the aspects of their own Stage of Bonding and development of Emotional Centre? Thank you MEntity: The stages of bonding for the consciousness of animals works a bit differently and is not anchored to the experiences of the body. If an animal shifts in consciousness to accommodate a relationship that comes late in the life, then the new consciousness mines the experiences stored in the body and uses what is interesting and useful, but can discard all of it, as well. We rarely see a complete discarding of the data. In addition to this, the consciousness may be at a point in its progression that a complete lifetime is not necessary for the animal to gain a missing experience or element that then completes a stage. In that case, a few years of bonding at the end of a life can be enough. Because animals have a hive consciousness, or hive souls, they are not as compartmentalized. The life of a body that has had a certain set of experiences is considered carefully and integrated (if useful) for any change in consciousness and late-life relationship. Does this address your question? We are not certain we received your question clearly. Pat: Oh yes! It is exactly what i was wondering about. Thank you Michael! Mizle: Hi there Michael, I would like to ask a further question about vaccination safety. I am interested in ways to prevent the potential damage and what a parent can do in preparation, if they choose vaccination. I'm guessing timing can be quite important, so other than obviously choosing a time when the child is not sick, i'm wondering, since vaccination damage and autism, and then again autism and incomplete 2nd IM are connected, if it would be correct to assume, that vaccinating becomes significantly safer after the child has completed their 2nd IM…? MMR is usually given right before or during 2nd IM at 15 months…. Thanks!! MEntity: Timing is important, but it will always be a gamble. The theory and use of vaccinations are valid, but it will always be the case that a single solution does not work for everyone. The higher the population, the higher the number representing even a fraction of a percentage who may be affected adversely. In most cases, you do not need to be concerned with timing or dangers of any significance when it comes to vaccinations. However, there can be "bad batches" or an individual may not respond well, etc. If a body will respond adversely, the timing matters because the more developed the individual immune system the more likely it can respond to any negative effects of a vaccination. Knowing if a body will respond adversely is currently not explored to any degree that could help prevent the harm done. Mizle: Assuming then a parent can't do anything really, maybe immune boosters or something at best. MEntity: Genetics and Nutrition are far more important to consider than whether to vaccinate or not, at least in terms of developmental challenges. At this point there is no known way to guarantee that a vaccine or lack of vaccine is a better or safer choice than the other. The variables in an individual life are so vast that even we would have difficulty calculating an individual probability. This is why it is such a difficult decision for a parent. We can say that when in doubt, look to the patterns of history, not speculation. History has a solid pattern to observe that reveals success and safety more often than not. However, the same can be said of those who refuse vaccines. The numbers of successful and safe refusal of vaccines are about equal in consideration. As for timing, if vaccination can wait until beyond the 2nd Internal Monad (individual mobility), it can be ideal in terms of allowing the body to gain its full consciousness on its own terms, but this delay is entirely dependent on the quality of current environment, climate, genetics, nutrition, etc. In short, we do not have a simple answer beyond directing you to use the tools available to you for making your choice, such as large scale data that reveals patterns of success or patterns of harm, along with your assessment of the quality of your current environment and quality of nutrition, and genetic vulnerabilities. Uma: Hello Michael, I would like to know the Soul Age/Level, Role/Casting, Cadre/Entity for Robert Mueller, the Special Counsel investigating trump, and if there are any karmic or other connections between them. If possible I would like the probabilities for impeachment/resignation and also for criminal conviction/prison for trump and his kids. I would appreciate knowing anything that would make this drama more understandable or easy to navigate. Thank you. MEntity: The fragment in question is a 7th Level Young Warrior-Cast Scholar from Cadre 11, Entity 3. There is Major Karma between these fragments involving Betrayal and Abandonment. When fragments address Karma during the 7th Level, especially as part of the transition into Mature Soul, there is an effort to shift away from simple reversal of scenario. For example, rather than killing someone who killed you, he saves your life in another life. It does not always go so well for the Young Souls who are new at the more creative Karmic Balancing. The "plan" was for the Scholar to show "sincere and authentic loyalty" to the King as a means to balance Betrayal and Abandonment in another life. This is showing up a bit differently than expected as the Scholar is, indeed, showing sincere and authentic loyalty to the King. It just so happens that this sincere and authentic loyalty are naturally devoted to upholding the King's authenticity and accountability. This relationship and Karmic balance would not have looked like this had the King not succumbed to his Imprinting. Probabilities for Impeachment are at about 58% at the moment. Conviction and Imprisonment stands at about 22% for the King and at about 18% "for the kids." Luciana: I read on that site that autism would be the result of an incomplete second internal nomad. However autism nowadays has several degrees. So I would like to know if this would be true even in the milder cases of autism such as Asperger's syndrome. What would lead to an incorrect diagnosis in the case of milder autism? MEntity: A failed 2nd Internal Monad tends to be hooked into any degree of Autism, but is not always causative, but is correlative. They are symptoms of each other. Sometimes the early onset of autism can affect the 2nd Internal Monad, and sometimes the struggles of the 2nd Internal Monad can bring about some degree of autism. A failed 2nd Internal Monad is correlative and causative of many developmental challenges. In the case of Autism it is both because "autism" is not a singular or definitive diagnosis. Early onset of autism tends to be the result of a mix of genetics, nutrition, and environment. In many cases of "autism, you simply have an Artisan or high Artisan elements in the Personality, particularly in the milder cases. Having one term represent such a broad umbrella of symptoms and degrees makes it difficult for us to carefully correlate or suggest causation, so this is a valid and important question that you ask. Did we address your question? Luciana: yes MEntity: FINAL QUESTION Connor: Hi Michael! Coming in November of this year (to a theater near you) in the United States are midterm elections, in which all seats in the House of Representatives and ⅓ of the seats in the Senate are up for reelection. There has been a lot of murmuring about an oncoming “Blue Wave” backlash to Trump’s bungling of his presidency which will flip control of Congress to the Democratic Party. What are the probabilities for this occurring? MEntity: The probability of United States Congress shifting into control of Democratic Party in November currently stands at 64%. The year ahead has too many variables for a higher percentage, but this is fairly high in light of that. Connor: Both Houses of Congress, you mean? MEntity: We are looking at both, yes. Did this answer your question? Connor: Yes it did. Thank you. MEntity: Good evening to each of you. We will conclude here for today. Goodbye, for now.
