  1. GRAND CYCLE REPORT for #8 A Grand Cycle is one trip as Essence from Tao through the 7 Planes of Physical, Astral, Causal, Akashic, Mental, Messianic, and Buddhic, returning to Tao. In truth, we never “leave” Tao, as each Plane is layered within each other like concentric circles, with the Physical Plane as the densest and at the center, within the Astral, which is within the Causal, and so on, with Tao encompassing all of these. Each Grand Cycle is its own dance through time and space as an individual Essence who chooses a Role, an Entity, an Essence Twin, etc. Each Grand Cycle can be a completely different Role, Entity, Essence Twin, and so on. Think of a Grand Cycle as one giant lifetime for your Essence as a ROLE, and your Role creates a new Personality as lifetimes within that. Essence and Role are often used interchangeably, but Essence chooses a ROLE, and that Role can change when in a new Grand Cycle, but Essence remains. Though one can have a multitude of Grand Cycles, each one is separate and does not bleed into any other. There is no significant influence among them. However, because Essence still has a memory and consistency, it will carry that experience forward into creating and setting up a new Grand Cycle. Because time can only be measured relative to one’s position within a planetary system, there is no way to really describe when your past Grand Cycles might have been, but if it is possible, Michael will mention it. Other planetary systems and species of your previous Grand Cycles will most likely be completely unknown to us as Humans. Knowing your history as Essence may not make a big difference in your understanding of who you are in your current life, but it can help you to consider the vastness of the universe, and the beauty of the incarnational process. Most Humans have an average of 3 Grand Cycles. NOTE: We should note here that we can only re-report on shared Grand Cycles to some limited extent without questions. Therefore, many reports requesting Grand Cycles that are shared may read similarly or exactly (if Troy has deemed it more practical to copy/paste). However, as different fragments may have had different numbers of Grand Cycles, it would not be meaningful to assume that the 8th Grand Cycle of everyone is the same, for example. But many will be the same, of course. YOU ARE IN YOUR _9th__ GRAND CYCLE Below is a synopsis of your chosen Grand Cycle as Essence: SYNOPSIS of Grand Cycle #8 The 8th Grand Cycle for you was through what we consider to be the first lab-created species. This species was created by an off-planet species that had rendered its own planet uninhabitable and losing nearly 80% of the population. This lab-created species was to be their new bodies, but this did not work out. The bodies created were similar to what you would recognize as humanoid now, but with terribly fragile bone structures. The creator species was adept at configuring DNA and genetics in a way that established a functioning intellect that gains self-awareness rapidly. After three generations of stability for these bodies, another Sentience “moved in” and anchored itself in this species. The creator species that had been living aboard a ship as their home would have to find another species to live out their Grand Cycle. The creator species resigned to this reality and chose to care for the newly-Sentient species they had created. They cared for this species until they died out, leaving generations of the new species stranded on their ship. The new species remained evolving and growing and systems were in place to care for this species for generations to come. The species thrived fairly well as they floated aimlessly through space. Eventually, species from what is known as “The Pleiades” would intercept the ship and bring it into orbit around a planet. To help transition to living on a planet, “your” species lived between ship and planet for quite some time before settling on the planet. Over time, and with access to the entire history and research and knowledge of the species who had created them, “your” species then helped to alter a native species on this new planet and this allowed the creator species to anchor itself in new bodies and complete their own Grand Cycle. *********** NOTES: I described this cycle to @BrianW affectionately as being a "lab-rat".
  2. From a session on 11/28/2012: [Diane_HB] Hello Michael. I'd like to know about my first Grand Cycle as a Server. Could you please describe the species, life cycle, planet, details on its evolution as a sentient species, notable traits, things learned as its role, etc. I'd like to use all of my allotted time for this. [MEntity] Hello, Diane. That was not a particularly "pleasant" cycle for your Essence. The species was something you might find akin to looking like "walking sticks," living symbiotically with the tree-like plants of that planet. Nourishment and shelter were gained from these trees. [MEntity] These bodies were not fragile, but they were rather rigid, and stood approximately 4 feet, or approximately 1.2 meters in height, moving both as bipeds and quadrupeds. [MEntity] Shortly after gaining sentience, an astronomical event occured that moved the planet into a spiral toward its sun. [MEntity] Rather, an orbit toward its sun. [MEntity] All new sentience tends to have its caretakers in place for help in transition to an independent species of consciousness, so if anything goes awry, some alternatives have come to be considered and are at the ready, if you will. [MEntity] The "trees" were the caretakers for this new sentience, as these "walking sticks" had actually evolved from these trees. [MEntity] As you may know from the time-lapse of plants and trees on your own planet now, there is great capacity for intelligent movement, and so it was for these trees, but without the necessity for time-lapse photography/filming to see it. [MEntity] In most cases, this intelligence of movement is only aimed for survival, and is not a result of choice, but the trees of that cycle were capable of movement by choice, as long as the equivalent of root systems and photosynthesis processors were stable. [MEntity] Over time, some "branches" were able to detach into an independently-mobile state, even while dependent upon the ecosystem of the trees. [MEntity] From there, eventual sentience was gained. [MEntity] All ideas for how to care for a new sentience are dependent upon the capacity of that caretaker sentient species, of course, and there were no back up plans for how to transport, if the planet were to be uninhabitable. [MEntity] As the planet spiralled in toward its sun, the caretaker species was affected, first, and though it was well on its way to cycling off, it would not do so until the capacity for the new sentience to sustain itself was well under way. [MEntity] The sentience of the trees was not necessary for the trees to still function as an ecosystem for the "walking sticks," but with the environment changing more rapidly than the trees could adapt, it was clear that both species would lose their home. [MEntity] And so it was that the acceleration of a grand cycle for that species kicked in, if you will. [MEntity] Most of that grand cycle, and all of its monads, karma, agreements, etc. were within the context of profound care for the caretaker trees. The mobility of the "walking sticks" allowed for resources to be manipulated that could help sustain the trees for as long as possible. [MEntity] "Lifetimes" for the "walking sticks" were a matter of what you would experience as weeks, as they would, eventually, burn from the heat, despite the incredible measures kept in place that helped preserve the trees. [MEntity] If the trees were to die, no life would be capable at all, so they were the priority. [MEntity] The hardiness of the "walking sticks" would have been preserved if they were confined to their preferred environment in the canopy of trees, but because they had to move beyond that and into harsh and unsupportive climates as a means to mine and transport nutrients to the trees, they were quickly destroyed. [Diane_HB] Sounds very scathing for a first grand cycle. [MEntity] The entire grand cycle was the equivalent of what you might experience as 3 years. [MEntity] The astronomical impact on the planet kept it within an orbit that was rather slow in descent, relatively speaking, but its own rotation was also slowed tremendously, making for some devastatingly long "days" of heat and cold, light and darkness. [MEntity] If not for the Akashic Records, and the beautiful dynamic of Essence and Tao for keeping records, many amazing species and galactic events such as this would never be known to any of us. [MEntity] As a Server, that particular grand cycle was grueling, and while any lifetime and grand cycle will leave Essence with meaningful and profound evolution, there can be some lifetimes and grand cycles that are quite intense. Though this intensity is not experienced in the same way by Essence that we might describe it in limited words, it would still be considered intense. [MEntity] The entire grand cycle was a race against "time," if you will, and was a bittersweet journey for grasping even the most minute of moments of joy and pleasure that made each and every life "worth living." [MEntity] The two sentience, in the end, remained together in the final days, cycling off "together." [MEntity] In the final weeks, a massive wave of "births" were generated as the oldest of souls stood together in rest, no intensity, and no fear, simply "being together," for the first time since the beginning of their symbiotic relationship. [MEntity] A great quantity of the Design who were those "trees" is a part of the Design who are our caretakers even now, as we move through our current species of Human.
  3. From my Grand Cycle Report on 1/29/2013: SYNOPSIS of Grand Cycle # 2 As a Scholar, your Essence embarked upon a journey of sentience through a species that might resemble to you a star fish. Each body would inhabit the consciousness of a Cadence, so every incarnation was a coordination of 7 Essences for one body. Each body had 6 “tentacles” that acted as the individual consciousness of one Essence, while the hub of the body was unique to the 7th Essence. In early incarnations, as a lifetime would unfold, the formative years were spent harmoniously sharing this body and its parts, but during a process that would be the equivalent of the 3rd Internal Monad, the appendages would go through a process of separation from the hub, each coming into their own independence, and leaving the hub on its own to die. Over the span of the lifetime, each part would die, but whichever lived the longest would spring out its own new appendages as the means of birthing of another round of lives for Cadence Members, giving life to those appendages, separating from them, and then dying, and so on. This shift of emphasis as hub would cycle among the members of Cadence, but as the soul aged, the mixing of Essences among bodies would come, with the older Soul Ages having elaborate and meaningful patterns of mixes among Essence Twins, Task Companions, Entity Members, Cadre Mates, etc., giving rise to a multitude of profound and exciting variations of relating. This species existed in an environment similar to what you know as Earth, with great bodies of water, and a caustic, sulphuric environment. There were no other sentient lives here, but this species has been in existence for countless ages, and continues to “today,” having hosted many Designs of sentience. It continues to be a host for new Designs.
  4. OMW - Oct 20, 2012 - How To Use Your Energy Troy Tolley, Channel [MEntity] First, we will define "Energy" here as the force that is vitality, which allows for systems to work. [MEntity] One may find that we use the term "beauty" and "energy" and even "oneness" interchangeably when discussing the three building blocks of any universe: Truth, Love, Energy. [MEntity] That is because each of these terms refer to that force of vitality that enables the functioning of a system. [MEntity] Energy is a Universal Truth. It exists in a multitude of forms, both seen and unseen, tangible and intangible, quantifiable, and amorphous. [MEntity] Where there is a system at work, there is Energy. [MEntity] Where there is Energy, there is a system at work. [MEntity] We will define "system" here as those parts that work to generate the whole. [MEntity] Tao, or "God," cannot exist without Energy, then, because it will always be made up of parts that generate that wholeness that is itself. [MEntity] Oneness is used interchangeably, because there is nothing that is truly whole without comprehending its resonant parts. [MEntity] Comprehending the interdependence of the parts is vital for that wholeness to be sustained. Otherwise, the illusion of fragmentation is consuming. [MEntity] A good example is the functioning of any Physical body. It is a system. It is made of parts. Parts that are interdependent, resonant, interacting, generating the whole of the body as one. [MEntity] The health of a body is much more easily sustained when this is understood, truly comprehended. [MEntity] What I EAT affects me. [MEntity] What I DRINK affects me. [MEntity] What I INHALE affects me. [MEntity] Eventually, the temporary high, temporary stimulation, temporary relief comes to be replaced with holistic awareness that comprehends the wholeness that is the body. [MEntity] When we mentioned "temporary," we mean those things that are clearly not beneficial for the body, but are ingested for the stimulation, high, or relief. [MEntity] This is not a concern when the body is in a fair state of health, but must be considered if the body is falling ill. [MEntity] This is another arena for the dance of choice, of course. [MEntity] But it is a fair comparison to any other system that is fueled by Energy. [MEntity] This would extend into the Emotional, Intellectual, and "spiritual" bodies, as well. [MEntity] On Macro and Micro levels, this is an absolute truth. DISCUSSION [MEntity] Before we move on into more detail, we will pause for questions about what we have shared, so far, if there are any. [Bobby] How does the Energy side of an Entity play into this? [MEntity] While there is no "side" to an entity, and while each Essence has all three "sides" as part of their dynamic, there are those within the entity who emphasize one over others for the sake of a dynamic structure. [MEntity] For those who emphasize Energy, their Essences (not necessarily their Personalities) help sustain the vitality for the functioning of the Entity. [MEntity] They would tend to keep the Entity "alive," and would tend to have lifetimes, or themes across lifetimes, geared toward the practice of waking up, and then the waking up of other Entity members. [MEntity] That path to waking up, and staying awake, may tend to be wrought with chaos, as Energy is both chaos and order, with chaos being the default entrance toward the path of waking up. [MEntity] For those on the "energy side," there may tend to be, in the Old Soul Age, a fine line between chaos and beauty (perceived order). [MEntity] However, this could be said of any fragment, and every fragment will have this as part of their own path toward wakefulness, consciousness, but for those with an emphasis on Truth or Love, then they would have their chaos move into beauty through their relative emphasis. [MEntity] For instance, Beauty and wakefulness comes to the lives of those with an emphasis on Truth by working through the spectrum of Truth. [MEntity] When that person rejects the truth, or is in the earlier stages of exploring truth, chaos may be a part of the dynamic. [MEntity] And the same for those who emphasize Love. [MEntity] Does this help explore your question. [MEntity] Are there any others? [GeraldineB] I'm confused about something [Bobby] Yes, thank you! [GeraldineB] Parsing what you said, it "sounds" as though Essence and/or Entities (through Entity Members aka Essences) need to be wakened [GeraldineB] I thought Personality was what needed awakening [MEntity] Correct. But the evolution of Essence, and thereby, the Entity, evolves based upon the rising capacity for consciousness while incarnated. [GeraldineB] ok -- thank you -- so they're not "extremely advanced" to us, their Fragments [Maureen] Sleeping Beauty [MEntity] In addition to this, no Essence is a completed state of awareness. It evolves into greater states of "wakefulness" that are relative to its own journey. [MEntity] If that were not the case, it would make Grand Cycles, and incarnation, a kind of soul masturbation. That would not be a "bad thing," but a fairly useless point for such vastness as Tao and the universe. [GeraldineB] I think that has been one of the issues I've been hung up on [GeraldineB] thank you [MEntity] An aside: [MEntity] The passage through the Soul Ages is always relative to the level of consciousness brought to the Grand Cycle, and then continues to build upon that through the experiences gained through the Planes of that Grand Cycle, relative to the species of incarnation. [MEntity] Those who have had 3 Grand Cycles will bring a different degree of capacity to their Grand Cycle as compared to that of one who might have 17. [Maureen] Thanks Michael -- I have wondered about that [MEntity] Returning to the subject now. [MEntity] But that was not a digression, as it is insight into how the Energy of one's Grand Cycle works [MEntity] This is the same for the individual lifetime, as well. [MEntity] Over the Soul Ages, both the Essence, and the awakened Personalities, will tend toward refining the use of Energy in evermore productive and relevant ways. [MEntity] This is seen in even more microcosmic scales when looking at how any individual life tends to use Energy over the course of growing up. [Maureen] Would you give us an example Michael? [MEntity] In both the Infant Soul Age, and as a literal infant, there is chaos as the force of Energy. That chaos is vital, is vitality. It is necessary for reasons we will share in a moment. [MEntity] As the body grows, so does the organization and movement of that Energy. [MEntity] As the soul ages, the same can be said. [MEntity] The reason for this movement through chaos, first, is because the Mass of an object IS its Energy. The Mass of any Essence is vast. It is transforming a minute portion of its Mass into the Energy that becomes the force and fuel of Personality. [MEntity] This could be said of any birthing into the Physical Plane. It is rarely without chaos in some form. [MEntity] That form is held in place only through the vitality of Essence, its Energy. [MEntity] In other systems, or species, those forms are held in place by their relative fields of consciousness that have formed them. [MEntity] Every form of any sort that can be quantified, even if in ways that would seem extremely abstract and intangible to you, such as the concept of Essence, is held in form by the "higher" field of consciousness behind it. [MEntity] So the form of Essence is even "held together" by the fact of its "birthing" from Tao. [MEntity] However, regardless of the form and the force that generates and sustains that form, there is potential Energy that is generated from the chaos. [MEntity] And this is harvested, if you will, in the form of growth, experience, comprehension, and waking up, which then becomes the force that sustains the whole. [MEntity] Imagine, then, every lifetime being much like a coiled spring. [MEntity] Every Grand Cycle, an even greater launch of force. [MEntity] The more Grand Cycles, the greater the Soul Age, the more quickly that spring is sprung, if you will. [MEntity] For most Old Souls, this is known. Their "spring was sprung" quite early, or in other words, the self-consciousness and self-awareness came quite early in the life. [MEntity] The earlier this comes, the more is harvested from the life in terms of experiences, growth, comprehension, and wakefulness. [MEntity] Because Energy cannot be destroyed, "you" will never die. [MEntity] The you that you know will never be left behind, absorbed, discarded. [MEntity] In much the same way that not a single one of your comprehended experiences will be lost to you, neither are you ever lost to Essence or Entity. [MEntity] Not a single experience is lost to Essence, regardless of your comprehension, but when the Personalty comprehends within the lifetime, it is never lost to that Personality. [MEntity] Because no lifetime is birthed without profound comprehension, then no lifetime is ever lost to Essence. [MEntity] In the same way that Essence evolves because of the potential unleashed in the lifetime that results in experiences, so do you evolve in Personality (toward the Positive Poles) as you use the power of Choice. [MEntity] Choice, then, is your individual key to all of the potential vitality that you carry as a Personality. [MEntity] This is not counting the potential already moving through the life because of Essence, but that which is unleashed by you, and harvested by you. [MEntity] As you are your own system of Overleaves, of working parts that generate a whole. [MEntity] This is not a matter of "the right choice," or "better choices," or a "bad choice," but the process of owning all of them, whether in retrospect, now, or as the impact of a previous choice comes to light in the future. [MEntity] Owning your choice is wakefulness. It is not guilt. It is not shame. It is not defense. It is not smugness. It is not dismissive. [MEntity] The owning of choice is simply recognizing the capacity for choice, even as you are bombarded by, benefited by, or harmed by the impact from the choices of others. [MEntity] We realize we are speaking quite metaphorically, but we think it is helpful. We will pause for questions before continuing. [Janet] Michael I am having trouble wrapping my head around all this but it is becoming clearer so I will wait to see where this goes. [MEntity] We will continue: [MEntity] Continuing with the spring as metaphor, the Internal Monads describe how far one's spring has sprung, how much potential has been released and is being built upon. The Soul Ages and Levels could be said to be simiar, but on the scale of Essence. [MEntity] The more consciously one is making Choices, the more smoothly that Energy continues to spring from the life. [MEntity] Or rather, from Essence. [MEntity] The more consciously one is making choices, the more potential is being converted into experiences, comprehension, waking, etc. that then sustain and expand both Essence and Personality. [MEntity] In terms of Essence, the use and management of Energy can tend to be relative to Frequency and Energy Ratio. The higher the Creative/Female Ratio, and Frequency, the greater the explosion of potential unleashed in a lifetime. The lower the Frequency, and the higher the Focused/Male Ratio, the more paced, measured, and steady the release of potential. [MEntity] The former often have lives and Personalities that are scattered in multiple directions, contexts, and foci to help disperse the impact of that explosion, so to speak. [MEntity] The latter tends to an ebb and flow, release and contracting, of energy that shows up in a multitude of ways over the lifetime. [MEntity] Ironically, the more consciously one is of Manifesting Essence, the more likely these reflections. [MEntity] If one has a lower Frequency, but a higher Creative Ratio, it would tend to show up as an effort to control or deflect the chaos more so than one who would have a higher Frequency. [MEntity] If one has a higher Frequency, and a higher Focused/Male Ratio, it would tend to show up as an emphasis on wringing the experience out of even the seemingly most insignificant of events and experiences. [MEntity] These are highly simplistic descriptions, and subject to variations because of other factors, but are fair enough. [MEntity] This combination between Frequency and Energy Ratio could best be understood here as the combination between the "rate of comprehension" to "path of navigation." [MEntity] Rate of comprehension is not describing intelligence, but quite specifically the preferred rate of comprehension. It is fair to say it is a spectrum from Ordinal to Cardinal, in that the lower Frequencies prefer a more Ordinal process. [MEntity] In terms of Personality, the same could be said of the distribution of Overleaves as they fall on the Axes. [MEntity] The more Ordinal the Overleaves, the more effort there is to manage the flow of Energy in the life. The more Exalted the Overleaves, the more likely this is not a concern. [MEntity] This is not to say that the Personality might choose differently from its design, especially when considering cultural and familial imprinting. [MEntity] In terms of the whole Personality, the Goal carries the greatest weight as influence in that overall management of Energy, then. The negative pole Goal would tend toward a more chaotic version of that Goal than that of the positive pole. [MEntity] In terms of relationships and relating, the Mode would carry the most weight. This might mean that if your Mode is exalted, your relationships may have much more explosive momentum than one who may have an ordinal Mode. [MEntity] In terms of social perspective and personal philosophy, the more effort to manage and control these might come from weight of the ordinal Attitudes. [MEntity] The more one is in the Positive Poles, the more flexible and fluid the flow of Energy because that flow would be allowed to be relative to the parts, the contexts, the necessities and design of those parts. [MEntity] The more one is in the Negative Poles, the more one would tend to alter the flow of Energy for the sake of constriction or force, based on defenses, fear, protection, etc. [MEntity] *alter the natural flow of Energy as described by the design of Personality.... DISCUSSION [MEntity] Before we continue, we know that this is a lot of information to combine and assess in one exchange, but we ask if there are any of you who find validity, or lack of validity, to these more immediate factors of Personality as they relate to your experience of vitality. [Diane_HB] Yes, I find that it fits. [Maureen] I can see how it fits as well Michael [AnnH] yes, it makes sense (in a broad way) [Janet] I see how it fits me. [Janet] Except that your description of how explosive my potential can be [MEntity] Ann, the broader context is always helpful for then applying the more immediate uses of the information in more meaningful ways. [Janet] But I'm working on it. [MEntity] Janet, By "high," we would mean 65 or higher in terms of Energy Ratio, and 75 or higher in Frequency. [Janet] Yes. I have 83 frequency and 59 creative. [MEntity] Keep in mind that the use of the word Potential here is not meant in terms of one's expectations of the self. [Janet] Agreed. [MEntity] It is in terms of accessing vitality. [MEntity] What you do with that is up to you. And that is where Choice comes into play. [GeraldineB] it doesn't help that one of the euphemisms for being "very energetic and healthy" is vitality in much of our advertising [GeraldineB] and I get a much more neutral feeling about it from you, MIchael [MEntity] Yes. That would be correct. Vitality is as calm or as "energetic" as one sees fit. A person in quiet meditation, or enjoying a day resting on the beach, or watching children play, or reading a book is just as easily accessing their vitality as one who is playing volley ball, exercising, or dancing. [MEntity] The appearance of vitality tends to be relative to one's Centering. APPLICATIONS AND USES [MEntity] To continue into the more immediate applications and uses of this information: [MEntity] One: it will always be helpful to remember that the potential and vitality of Essence will be managed by Essence, whether you are Manifesting Essence, or not. [MEntity] Two: it will always be helpful to remember that your immediate access to vitality, to the flow of energy that is your life force, regardless of circumstances, is your capacity for Choice, and the owning of that process. [MEntity] Three: it will always be helpful to remember that you cannot destroy Energy, and that everything you consciously choose is a process of conversion of You (mass) into Experience (energy). [MEntity] Every choice is a release of potential, a further expansion of the spring that is the force of vitality from Essence. [MEntity] Four: the health of your bodies is affected by your choices, and is a great form of feedback for the impact of many of your choices, but your health is not always the result of your choices. Scathing is a part of the package of the Physical Plane, as is "death." No choice can keep either from happening. [MEntity] Your choices from within any scathing, or in the face of any death, be it yours or someone else's, or loss of any sort, is what matters. [MEntity] Access to Vitality is not altered or hindered by anything other than choice. [MEntity] Vitality is most easily understood, in terms of accessibility and application when making choices, as Trust. [MEntity] When you trust yourself, you are Vitality. That is why the volley of a ball, or the reading of a book, can be equal in vitality, because of the trust. [MEntity] That is why the pain in harm, or the pleasure in healing, can both be filled with Vitality, when there is trust, a knowing. [MEntity] Finally, to get used to the idea and practice of allowing the flow of Energy in your life, and accessing Vitality and trust in your choices, we suggest playing with each day as if it is an incarnation. You are the Essence of the day, and the day is your Personality. [MEntity] You may not have control over the Personality/day, but the force of your choices contributing to the day, make a difference. [MEntity] That is Vitality. [MEntity] That is a force of life. [MEntity] Letting yourself move that Energy in ways that are natural to you, based on your Overleaves, can help you, then, to let that vitality show up however is best, not for however it looks best. DISCUSSION [MEntity] We will take any questions now. [MEntity] Or comments. [Janet] I like the idea of treating a day as an incarnation. I'm going to try that. [GeraldineB] Yes, I'm going to set that one up as a discussion on TLE [Janet] Michael, this material requires reflection before I can even begin to formulate a question. [MEntity] That is a quick path to the self-awareness for how you use the energy of your day. [MEntity] We understand, Janet. We will, also, state that this is, as usual, only a part of what we would have to say on the subject. [Diane_HB] I can validate a lot of it, and I think I manage my energy fairly efficiently for the most part. [Maureen] I take it that my being revved up from 55 Frequency to 75 Frequency not "natural" for me. Am I not manifesting Essence when I am not inhabiting my natural Frequency? I guess this may apply to others as well. [GeraldineB] wouldn't that still be a matter of conscious choice? [MEntity] Maureen, the use of the range of Frequency is not a hindrance to the Manifestation of Essence. You could use 35 to 75. [MEntity] Sustaining at one extreme or the other is not easy on the Personality, but it is not a factor in Manifesting Essence. [Maureen] that's good then! [MEntity] We will continue this discussion with our students. We will conclude here for today, then.
  5. Maureen’s 5th Grand Cycle From a POF on December 14, 2011 Maureen: Michael – Your answer to one of Bobby’s questions on Monday re: a future self spun a lot of discussion around a Star Trek Episode called “The Inner Light”. To many of us it is a favourite. Bobby connected his future “flute playing” to this episode and I have had this episode on my mind many times over the years and in particular quite insistently over the last few weeks. #1) I felt – through this shared resonance or “poignancy” – that this episode relates in some way to a Grand Cycle of a Species that is no longer “with us” that my Essence has shared with Bobby’s Essence (hence the shared “connection”) and may in fact have been shared with others as well. If so please describe this Species as viewed through this shared Grand Cycle and its connection to this Episode? If not – please answer why this particular episode was so evocative to so many of us. MEntity: To Maureen - In response to your first question: Your intuition appears to be valid, in that the episode may evoke some Essence memory of a previous Grand Cycle, but it is also relevant to all of you in terms of "the future." MEntity: This "future" is painfully craved by many of our students who endure the slower timeline toward it, which has deep rewards of evolution in itself. MEntity: With Bobby's Essence being "featured" in such a daily way in that community, there is a natural resonance to that peaceful, parallel "future" existence. MEntity: On your own, you "know" that existence, with or without our information, so the episode is provocative of Essence Recognition. MEntity: In terms of previous Grand Cycles, you may be drawing parallels to a species that could be said to be "time-based," and its bodies being sound. The species evolved parallel, and symbiotically, to another species that was capable of generating sound. MEntity: As the species evolved, so did the quality of sound, from chaotic din to orchestral harmonies. The "bodies" of the species were categorized by the instruments used to generate the sounds. MEntity: Many of our students enjoyed the "wind" and the "strings" body types. MEntity: Beyond that, it was also just a good episode that was well-acted and written. It could be as simple as that. Maureen: What Grand Cycle # was this for me and for Bobby? …for our record-keeping. Martha: sounds fun, getting to "be" instruments Maureen: I have "witnessed" a healer "tuning" a body like an instrument -- interesting! MEntity: We think this may have been #5. We would suggest asking again at another time for verification. ~~~ Addendum June 4, 2019: Clips from Star Trek: The Next Generation: S5E25: The Inner Light The launch of the probe and Picard's realization that he was the one it'll find: Batai: Don't you remember?... You saw it just before you came here. We hoped our probe would encounter someone in the future. Someone who could be a teacher. Someone who could tell the others about us. Jean-Luc Picard: Oh... it's me? Isn't it? I'm the someone. ... That's what this launching is. The probe that finds me in the future. Eline: The rest of us have been gone a thousand years. If you remember what we were, and how we lived, then we've found life again. ..... Now we live in you. Tell them of us, my darling. And, of course, the Flute Playing that reminded Bobby of his future life: Here's the whole episode for those who wish to see it:
  6. Maureen

    Maureen's 3rd Grand Cycle

    Maureen's 3rd Grand Cycle Originally published on November 22, From a POF on October 12, 2011 Maureen: In my last private session with you Michael I asked about a recent meeting with a young man (a Server-cast Artisan) and you said: “His Essence appears to be an Essence Mate, which is an Essence Twin from a previous Grand Cycle; your third Grand Cycle as a Sage. When one comes across an Essence Mate, it is often an immediate Recognition, marked by a level of comfort that is often quite confusing.” Maureen: Could you describe a significant life lived with this Essence Mate (Essence Twin in my third Grand Cycle) in a way that illuminates the species, life cycle, notable traits, things learned as the Sage Role in Essence, etc.? Please use my allotted time, as required, for this one question. MEntity: The Grand Cycle in question appears to have been through a humanoid species that may look a bit like a cross between an insect and human to you, less than one meter tall, with a large head, roundish body, two compound eyes, four arms, walking upright, with bristly course skin. MEntity: This was on a planet with a harsh environment above ground, so most of the civilizations were below ground, with technology developing in such a way as to capture light from various sources, not only from the primary star of that system, but from radiating sources below ground. MEntity: There were very few lifeforms sharing this planet with that species, so relationships were developed with minerals. In the same way that your species now may adopt a mammal, reptile, bird, or fish, etc as a companion, crystals were taken in as personal and family companions. MEntity: Crystals were used for everything from religion to music to healing to light sources to "pets." MEntity: Global communication was based on them, as well. MEntity: One of the striking things about this species was its inability to sing, at least not in ways that would be considered beautiful. Their vocalizations would sound like the shattering of glass to you. Maureen: lol MEntity: A significant lifetime, then, shared between the Essence Twins, was the work of installing structures above ground that took advantage of the winds, sands, and metallic dusts that were normally something to protect oneself from, and allowed that species to hear music for the first time. MEntity: The Crystals began to "sing." Maureen: :) MEntity: This led to a transformation of the species in terms of evolution and soul age, as this could then be extrapolated from and used eventually for elaborate songs that were used to identify various cultures, societies, cities, etc. MEntity: One of the ways that the various challenges among the cultures were resolved was by fine-tuning one another's "song" in a way that would move into harmony, and this would resolve the issues of conflict, allowing for a focus on resolution of the more tangible conflicts. Maureen: that is truly beautiful MEntity: If one were to visit the planet, it would be heard much like a rising and falling of a chorus. Martha: that is beautiful, I've got tears now MEntity: This species developed great skills in remote viewing, and while no off-planet travel has yet developed, a 12th Design and variation on the species does still exist, and has "visited" some of our students. Maureen: "visited" - in what way? Bobby: via remote viewing Martha: peeking in through the cats? Maureen: ok :) MEntity: Remote viewing, mostly through dreams, through felines, or in meditations. MEntity: Though this is only a fraction of a view of life in that Grand Cycle, it is a fair glimpse that reveals a great deal. Update: Additional information received from Michael November 7, 2011: Maureen: Could you provide a broader definition of “12th Design” and is this design related to this species only or is there a more general applicability to other species as well? MEntity: A Design is what we use to refer to a whole set of Sentient fragments who choose to incarnate across a Grand Cycle together in a particular species, until all have reunited with Tao. MEntity: Sometimes, a Design is done incarnating in a species that remains with a capacity for sentience. MEntity: Rather than that species falling back into non-sentience, which is sometimes the case, there can also come a new Design that either picks up that species after a clean break from the previous Design, or there is an overlapping, if you will. MEntity: When there is overlapping, there is often an evolutionary branch or leap that occurs to differentiate the previous bodies used for the previous Design from the new Design. MEntity: In a species that has had a long-standing cycling of Designs, records can sometime begin to be developed as a way to pass along ancestral histories. MEntity: In the case to which you refer, that 12th Design, though it had no direct interaction with your species, knew enough of our history with that line of Designs through that Species that contact was kept intact to some extent.
  7. EIGHTH GRAND CYCLE: SCHOLAR [Oscar] Hello Michael =) I'd like to continue with my Grand Cycles, and like to know about my eighth Grand Cycle (as an Scholar). Could you please describe the species, life cycle, planet, details on its evolution as a sentient species, notable traits, things learned as its role, etc. I'd like to use the time for both questions for this. [MEntity] At this point in the recounting of Grand Cycles, it may begin to show overlap with other students' who may share in the exploration, as many of you shared the last 2 or 3 Grand Cycles in some way. [MEntity] In this case, it was one of the "first' lab-created species that we know of, created off-planet by a species who had rendered its own planet uninhabitable, reducing its numbers tremendously, and working hard to create a way for the species to continue. [MEntity] These bodies were similar to what you would recognize as humanoid now, but it took a long time for the bones to develop in a way that would not shatter easily. [MEntity] This species drew in an immediate Sentience, as the creator species was well-versed in tweaking the dna and genetics in a way that established a functioning intellect that could house self-awareness and choice. [MEntity] By "immediate" we do not mean the first bodies, as they were not Sentient, but within the first three rounds of successes, Sentience moved in. [MEntity] The "ship" was a fully-functioning alternative to a planet, and it coasted freely and slowly without direction, since there was no eagerness to inhabit a new planet without having any way to save the species that was dying out. [Oscar] What did the creator species look like? [MEntity] We think you may describe them as bipedal humanoid-insectoid, as they did appear to be human, but with facial structure and features, and bodily movements similar to a praying mantis. [MEntity] The creator species did eventually die out (in the middle of its own Grand Cycle as that species) leaving the new Sentient species to figure out how to run the ship. [MEntity] This ship was eventually "rescued" and brought into what many now know as "the pleiades." [MEntity] This was long after the creator species had died out, and the new Sentient Species had mastered the use of the tools and talents of the previous species and its ship. [MEntity] As a part of the transition to on-planet living, the ship orbited one of the planets in the system that would become their eventual home. [Oscar] How big was that ship, and what did it look like? [MEntity] With this possibility of on-planet living, and the deep, loving gratitude for the creator species, and the sharp knowledge of their dying out, a plan that had been formulated by the creator species, and held sacred by the new Sentience, was finally able to be implemented. [MEntity] This ship would have been similar to your own moon in shape and size. [MEntity] The Sentient species lived between the planet and the ship, long enough to gather the materials and energy necessary for re-creating their creator species. [MEntity] This, eventually, allowed for the completion of their Grand Cycle as a Design. [MEntity] After ensuring the quality and stability of the ship, the new Sentience that had then helped to establish its creator sentient new home, left the orbit of the planet to continue out its Grand Cycle aboard that ship. [MEntity] To our knowledge, that ship remains afloat at this time. [MEntity] Life aboard the ship was not much different from one on a planet, but because of the context of the creation, the body types, and living circumstances, the species was quite philosophical, peaceful, and unaffected. [MEntity] Their curiosity was less about what could be discovered, and more about what could be created, so there were waves and waves of experiments that emphasized various themes over time within the species. [MEntity] If our records here are clear, one of the final creations was that of a synthetic intelligence that is capable of sentience, yet currently remains dormant to this day aboard that ship. [MEntity] This was an emphasis of creation because it had suddenly occurred to many that they would never see another species again, let alone a sentient species. [MEntity] Their history had been so filled with the aim for getting the creator species back into bodies, that once this was accomplished, the inclination was simply to move on. Their fragility was one that prompted them to happily remove themselves from the complicated world of interaction with more robust species, and to remain in an environment that was wholly capable of being controlled. [MEntity] This Grand Cycle's experiences are part of what led many who chose to move into the current Human Sentience to choose such a robust, moving, and excitable species now.
  8. FOURTH GRAND CYCLE: SCHOLAR [Oscar] Hello Michael =) I'd like to continue with my Grand Cycles, and like to know about my fourth Grand Cycle (as a Scholar). Could you please describe the species, life cycle, planet, details on its evolution as a sentient species, notable traits, things learned as its role, etc. I'd like to use the time for both questions for this. [MEntity] Your fourth Grand Cycle species could be described as yet another electromagnetic-based species that might be understood as a kind of globular plasma. The life-cycle would appear to have been measured in hues, instead of years. Hues moved toward a darker spectrum as the life unfolded, and eventually faded into darkness, so to speak. The planet was more like an "ocean" of electromagnetic fields in which the species "swims." The movements were not confined by speeds, but by frequencies. (We are describing this as best we can.) The species did eventually master off-planet travel, and does continue to exist now as a non-specific planetary species that has evolved far beyond where "you" were in that fourth Grand Cycle. At this point, they often work with "new" planets in helping to stabilize the non-sentient life forms that are evolving, and are often mixed in with the "faery lore" of that planet, if there is interaction. That is, interaction with the sentient life forms. That species is now in its 5th Design. During "your" Cycle, however, no off-planet travel had begun, but the species cycle evolved to a point where individuals could "leap" outside of the "ocean" of the fields, much like dolphins in your current oceans of water, which prompted the attraction of the next Design to carry that further. In terms equivalent to Human experience, this might be experienced as Remote Viewing, or "shimmering" out of your current space and into another entirely different universe from what you know. Or maybe more that you could move beyond your atmosphere without any protection or propulsion. Family lines in this species were defined by colors, as well, with far more defined lines in the beginning than at the end. In the same way that your current species will eventually move into a bell curve that returns your species back to "brown" over such defined skin color groups, so did this species move back into a more rainbow-like glistening of colors that broke down the social and familial barriers. Though we cannot synopsize all that your Essence learned during that cycle, we can say that a major theme involved was one of contributing to the use of vibration for generating "music." "Music," then became part of the equation that allowed for the freeing of the species from the confines of its fields. We do not imply that your Essence was solely responsible for this, of course, but that it contributed to the pieces that were put together by others who then moved it into other fields of application, so to speak. Mating was done in a way that can only be described as a resonance of frequency that then moved in a dance between particles and waves shared between the fragments mating. "Parents" were often in groups, not pairs. Being "born" was a matter of generating this matrix of particles and waves that then allowed for a new light to form, much like a spark that stabilized. That is what we have to share about this Grand Cycle. We have no more to share. [Oscar] What did you mean by "non-specific planetary species"? [MEntity] The species now moves among the known universe in a way that travels in electromagnetic fields, and if a planet has them, which most do, then that species can go there. It now moves in clusters throughout the universe, settling on newer planets with evolving lifeforms that can use their help in stabilizing. When they move in groups, they are more obvious, but when they disperse, they are usually only "seen" as glimpses of light, balls of light, or electrically sensed by most. They participated in the repairing of our planet, Earth, after the 5th Intervention. Which gave rise to some of the "faery lore." [GeraldineB] Do later Designs for a species evolve more quickly through their Soul Ages? [MEntity] These are not the same thing as "devas," but they work well with Devic energies. [MEntity] Geraldine, no, not necessarily. It is relative to the Design: one can be very "slow," while others catapult the species. =================================================================================================== [GeraldineB] I'd like to continue with my Grand Cycles, and like to know about my fourth Grand Cycle (as a Warrior). Could you please describe the species, life cycle, planet, details on its evolution as a sentient species, notable traits, things learned as its role, etc. I'd like to use the time for both questions for this. [MEntity] To Geraldine - your fourth was shared with the same fragment known as Oscar. The description would be the same. However, a theme developed during that Cycle might be in the contribution to the capacity for manipulating energy to take shape into forms that could be used as tools. The species had no appendages or form, but the Warriors worked to extend the capacity of the species. Species often morph by the lead of Artisans, Warriors, and Scholars. [Oscar] ooo [GeraldineB] oooh [GeraldineB] Was it the same Design as Oscar's? [MEntity] Yes. [GeraldineB] So, we "knew" each other? [MEntity] Your Essence (along with many others, of course) "wondered" how mating could occur, but no real manipulation beyond that, and moving about. This launched the imagination into frequencies that could be more easily manipulated. This might be understood as the equivalent of a Human living his life wandering about in an environment already defined for him, with his mind rich with creativity, and suddenly realizing that his thoughts are not enough for implementing that creativity, so he reaches for a physical tool. In terms of a Physical Plane, Warriors were first to "reach for that tool." [GeraldineB] Have you picked up any understanding how this species evolved through the Soul Ages -- did their Internal Monads, etc? [MEntity] This launched an entire revolution that not only led to the building of what might be the equivalent of cities, but led to the capacity for making music. They evolved in Soul Age much in the same way as any species: through experience; and evolved in Monads in the same way: through relationships, within and without. The Monads are universal. [GeraldineB] I just can't quite see them sitting around a campfire buck naked and eating grubs :) [Oscar] lol [MEntity] That is because they did not. "Sitting around a campfire, naked, and eating grubs" is far from necessary to evolving in Soul Age or fulfilling a Monad. In any species. [Bobby] lol [GeraldineB] No, but my imagination is limited by our own history as a species [Oscar] Yeah we can be dressed i suppose ;) [GeraldineB] I can't visualize an electromagnetic spectrum as "physical". [MEntity] But they went through the same processes of developing societies, schools, laws, and exploring Chief Negative Features, exchanges, etc. [MEntity] Yes, Geraldine, we understand, which is why our means of conveying more is limited. We have to resort to analogies, at best. In some ways, their world was much like the Astral Plane, if that helps. In fact, they merged a great deal. Your Physical Plane merges with the Astral, as well, but is far more definitive. [GeraldineB] Also, my 3rd GC was a "wave lengths". [MEntity] Yes, this was a natural progression, as far as we can see. Sometimes there is what would seem a natural progression, while other times there is a grand departure into unexpected species. The earlier Grand Cycles are far more experimental, and as the Grand Cycle numbers are higher, the more dense and familiar the species will be. [GeraldineB] So, it's like the Tao itself is evolving into density. [MEntity] It is more that it is become more confident in its structures of imagination. Having more fluid life forms allows for less scathing, but as Sentience evolves, scathing is more tolerable. Which is why those with greater Grand Cycles tend to fall into positions for hosting the Infinite Soul. At approximately the 7th Grand Cycle, most of our students would be sharing the same descriptions. "We" have been together a long time, if you will. The Warrior fragment known now as Steven Lisberger did his best to recreate this 4th Grand Cycle creatively in the Tron franchise. It was nowhere near accurate, but it was metaphorically accurate, particularly to the Young Age of the species during that cycle. Or rather, the end of the Young Age cycle. It also helps metaphorically play out the current shift on the planet, as well. [GeraldineB] Approximately, how many other TLE Students of Troys are part of this 4th GC? (Even if it were not their 4th, per se) [MEntity] Nearly all of the fragments with whom you associate regularly, though their numbering may differ. [Oscar] Oh so Bobby was a plasma blob too at some point...cool :) [MEntity] Not Bobby, but his Essence experienced that species, yes. [Oscar] Yeah that's what i meant :) [GeraldineB] It's almost as though we're going to have to name these Species/and Designs to catalog them. [Oscar] Can't we get a printout from the Akashic Records? [MEntity] If you choose to do so. You may then see a pattern that is vast in scope, and helpful for understanding evolving Sentience, or evolving Tao. However, one fragment's question from within one range of Grand Cycles, even alongside several other fragments from the same Design, only gives a blink of a glimpse into this vastness.
  9. SEVENTH GRAND CYCLE: SAGE [Oscar] Hello Michael =) I'd like to continue with my Grand Cycles, and like to know about my seventh Grand Cycle (as an Sage). Could you please describe the species, life cycle, planet, details on its evolution as a sentient species, notable traits, things learned as its role, etc. I'd like to use the time for both questions for this. [MEntity] Yes, this would have been as the Sage Role, and the Seventh Grand Cycle for your Essence. This Cycle appears to have been within a bird-like species who sang as a means of communication. We say "bird-like," but that is a bit misleading. [MEntity] These creatures were bipedal and wingless and featherless, but "bird-like," nonetheless. The bones of these creatures were hollow, and the musculature growth around them caused by the high gravity led to an evolving species that had great strength. [MEntity] A shift in the gravitational field of the planet over time left the species with a great capacity for leaping and jumping for great distances. [MEntity] However, that shift also released the resistance that helped to build such musculature in the body. This led to technological developments that fitted each body with its own mechanical armor, if you will, and helped maintain the capacity for the species to leap great distances. [MEntity] This may seem a silly priority, but imagine if your species were to suddenly begin being born with no legs, or a lack of muscular strength in the legs, immobilizing populations over time. There are many ways that this can be remedied, either through adaptation to that sedentary life, or through the replacement of the familiar mobility functions. [MEntity] The use of wheels would be a fair solution, but wheels have limitations on terrain, so it would become a priority to develop all-terrain "legs" again. [MEntity] And so it was that the capacity to leap was a priority. [MEntity] So, to some extent, the species could "fly." Once the armor began including the capacity for gliding, and a brilliant platform system for travel, the distances that could be covered were even greater. The "singing" was similar to what you might recognize as "bird-like," as well. [MEntity] Off-planet travel was limited, because the gravitational pull of most planets was simply too much for this species, so it became a planet for retreat and vacation and pleasure for other traveling species. [MEntity] Much of the culture, then, was aimed toward art, performance, decadence, and entertainment, along with great services, treatments, and comforts. [MEntity] As a species, this was a particularly exciting one for Sages and Servers, and any fragments with inclinations for Expression and Inspiration, but the Action Roles were quite comfortable, as well, since so much construction, planning, organizing, and functioning architecture was involved. [MEntity] Plants were an important part of this species life as well, as it shared the planet with no other mobile species. [MEntity] Plants were respected and honored in much the same way that animal companions are respected and honored among some in your current species. They were named, relationships developed, and roles played by them in society. [MEntity] As this species were frugivores, no exploitation of plants was ever necessary, and the life cycle of any resource was profoundly honored. [MEntity] What was learned from that Grand Cycle is too much to summarize, of course, but a theme that developed for that Role, and for most who incarnated as that species, was a deep undercurrent of sensitivity and awareness of the consciousness and vitality of non-sentient life. [MEntity] There tends to come at least one species over the course of Grand Cycles that lives with harmony as the priority, and an awareness and embrace and agape that extends far beyond its own species. [MEntity] This was that species for your Essence. [MEntity] It is a kind of full circle, in those Grand Cycles such as this one, that help the Essence remember its own path of exploration as non-sentient, and as part of a hive soul. [MEntity] That is a fair synopsis for now.
  10. SIXTH GRAND CYCLE: ARTISAN OSCAR: Hello Michael =) I'd like to continue with my Grand Cycles, and like to know about my sixth Grand Cycle (as an Artisan). Could you please describe the species, life cycle, planet, details on its evolution as a sentient species, notable traits, things learned as its role, etc. I'd like to use the time for both questions for this. FROM MICHAEL: The Grand Cycle in question appears to have been through a bipedal species that would resemble giant toads, living in what might seem to be a tropical, humid, and wet planet with very little variation in weather because of its rotation, orbit, and proximity to its sun. The years lived by this species ran a kind of "bell-curve" over its Cycle, starting out with fairly short lifetimes that would be the equivalent of 20 to 30 years, peaking at 150 to 200 years, and then down to 40 to 50 years. This is different from your current species, whose lifetimes during this Cycle have several high peaks and sharp drops in the numbers of years in a body. This species was rather "warrior-like" and aggressive, leading to nearly the entire Cycle being lived out with the species divided across its planet based on variations in the body types that sealed ones alignment with parts of the planet. Some species spend their entire Grand Cycle with a kind of Infant Soul theme, even in the other Soul Ages, or a Young Soul theme, even in every other Soul Age, etc, and this species had a pronounced lock on the Young Soul ideals across the entire Grand Cycle, though Mature and Old Soul values came to be used as a means to work within that Young Soul theme. For example, because of the default state of warring and division that was sustained throughout the Cycle, this was played out in the obvious ways on larger scales, but also became the provocation for how to implement the Mature and Older Soul concepts of peace and context. Technological and Spiritual progress was all within the paradigm of war, and how to create, prevent, resolve, or escape it. Your Essence took from that Cycle a great appreciation for conflict, but also a kind of mocking for when there is a lack of necessity for it, which is most of the time.
  11. FIFTH GRAND CYCLE: SERVER [Oscar] Hello Michael =) I'd like to continue with my Grand Cycles, and like to know about my fifth Grand Cycle (as a Server). Could you please describe the species, life cycle, planet, details on its evolution as a sentient species, notable traits, things learned as its role, etc. I'd like to use the time for both questions for this. [MEntity] From what we can see, this Grand Cycle was experienced as a species that would be similar to that of what you might recognize as a rabbit or kangaroo on your current planet, though much larger in size. [Oscar] lol [MEntity] This was a species that lived in a similar way to what Earth's Cetaceans live like, with an emphasis on philosophy, intellect, and play. [MEntity] Earth's sentient Cetaceans, that is. [MEntity] Similar to rabbits, this species procreated beyond any necessity for so many bodies, which led to two rare scenarios for a species: bodies from within a sentient race that did not have "souls," if you will, and many bodies dying very early in their lives. [MEntity] This is what helped move the species into a long arc of exploration of metaphysics, philosophy, spirituality, and so on. [MEntity] This also generated an early recognition of responsibility and maturity within the species for its impact on its environment, leading to some of the most valuable mores any species has ever had. [MEntity] Its own inherent survival instincts ironically nearly drove the species to extinction several times before someone "caught on" that the slowing down of reproduction must be considered. [MEntity] This was on par with the discovery of electricity for this species. [MEntity] Bringing such an awareness to the process of something that was "so natural" that was causing so much harm was profound, and turned the species into a careful, measured, and ultimately extremely joyful species. [MEntity] All species have some similar process to its evolution of awareness as a whole. For instance, Humans continue to return to the "Achilles' Heel" of Consumption. [MEntity] Rather, all Sentient Species. [MEntity] Humans, it would seem, also "love to procreate," but more than procreation, Humans consume. [MEntity] However, the species of which we speak "loved" to procreate, and once there is a means for managing what one "loves to do" without it being a source of one's demise, a great shift occurs for the species as a whole. [MEntity] This is true for the individual, as well, of course. [MEntity] The species never took off for off-planet exploration, but became a great sanctuary for other Sentient species who had discovered them at the time, turning the planet into a rather wonderful retreat for education, meditation, and healing. [MEntity] This species, then, became a great influence in its part of the galaxy for mediation, peace-keeping, and policies that were of benefit to all. [MEntity] Unfortunately, near the end of the cycle for this species, it was "wiped out" by a species who decimated their planet. [Bobby] [those damn Klingons] [Oscar] lol [Oscar] What was the reason for that? Conquest? [MEntity] A handful of survivors who were able to be taken into sanctuary on planets that had benefited so much from them, and the instinct for procreation returned in a way that was tremendously successful for returning the species to a population that allowed for completion of the cycles. [MEntity] Though interplanetary travel remained unappealing to the species, interplanetary incarnations began then, as the species now had stations across a few planets. [MEntity] And when the species finally died out, its influence continued for what might be equivalent of 3 Grand Cycles of incarnations through that system. [MEntity] These became loving gods and protectors of subsequent sentient species. [MEntity] We will complete our session with you here today. Synopsizing these Grand Cycles does not do justice to the complexities and beauty that each represents for your Essence, but they are a start in understanding just how vast each of us is.
  12. This material is from a POF on September 17, 2014. Janet: Am I correct in assuming that Grand Cycles can be concurrent? If so, can experiences gained by Essence in one Grand Cycle generate ideas for experiences to pursue by Essence in another Grand Cycle? Can there be cross-Grand-Cycle exchange among each ‘version’ of Essence? MEntity: Grand Cycles are not concurrent. We suppose they could be, but we have not seen this. Grand Cycles are generated based on accessible species that can host sentience, and many of those species are long gone. There is a more linear progression to Grand Cycles than the progressions within the Grand Cycles. Janet: I see. So, for instance, it would not be possible for Essence to have a Grand Cycle among the Cetaceans while also having a Grand Cycle among Humans. MEntity: Correct. We have not seen this. However, once cross-breeding is possible between two sentient species, cross-incarnation can happen, and this is not so uncommon. Janet: Is that a possibility here? Doesn’t seem likely. GeraldineB: only if you want to be a gorilla Janet: Ha. I meant between Humans and Cetaceans. GeraldineB: I don't see how they could crossbreed MEntity: There are possibilities for cross-breeding, but we do not think this is possible between Cetacean and Human.
  13. [MEntity] Your Second Grand Cycle appears to have been in an insectoid species that would look somewhat like large “walking sticks” from Earth, about the size of the Giraffe. This species was fairly sedentary, slow-moving, and meditative, evolving a brain that was something that could be considered cellular and not centralized. In other words, the cells of these bodies were networked through synaptic processes that let the entire body act as a “brain.” This species survived on a liquid diet that was extracted from excretions in trees and plants. This excretion was waste material for the plants, so the ingestion helped to keep the plants and trees from poisoning their soil. However, this foodsource was also intoxicating, so a great deal of the life of this species was spent with “one foot in the Astral,” so to speak. They never moved to be off-planet, and though other species visited the planet, they never recognized the creatures as more than a form of plant. Their movements were slower than that of what you know as the Sloth, and were barely discernable to other species. If one were to look at a family or group of this species, it would appear as a large brambling bush. This is because each fragment would link to another and share in thought, brain activity, pondering, etc. This species did little but exist for the sake of its existence, while pondering the nature of all that is, and eventually died out after the last of the fragments cycled off.
  14. [MEntity] You are in your 9th Grand Cycle YOUR ESSENCE HAS BEEN: Scholar, Sage, Priest, Scholar, Sage, Priest, Artisan, Sage, and now Scholar

 [MEntity] Your First Grand Cycle appears to have been as a rather giant, worm-like creature who lived primarily in sands of a very dry, desert planet. Its entire source of nutrition came from the caverns of waters and mosses deep within the planet, which was illuminated by what would be understood as bioluminescence. The lifetimes were the equivalent of what you might experience as a century. This species did not require interaction for reproduction, as every body could reproduce on its own, planting large quantities of pods in the cavern pools where larvae were nurtured collectively. The species was primarily philosophical, but in the crudest of terms, as the speculation was limited to life beyond the surface of the sands. Beyond this, the species was so physically sensitive that most of its time was rather meditative on its sensations, moving about merely to feel, sleeping minimally, moving constantly. Though sexual intercourse and gender was not a necessity for reproduction, sexual pleasure was eagerly shared in writhing groups. This species never made contact with any other sentient species, was always planet-bound, but another species did discover the remains and generate a version of the species again on another planet, which turned into a terribly problematic scenario. Some variation of this species was depicted in vague, creative memories from the science fiction writer known now as Frank Herbert. The original species died out as the planet’s water reserves dried up, but the Design was able to complete its Grand Cycle incarnations.
