Inputs Part One

 

Note from Janet: Although the transcript heading indicates this session is 'Part One', no additional session was found.

 

[Note: I'm not too happy with how superficially we touched on Inputs in the chat, but we can only get so involved in such a short period of time. I hope we can continue this topic again. tt]

 

[M_Entity]
Welcome. We are here. We understand the requested Topic to be that of “Inputs.”

 

Very little has been said in terms of Inputs because the topic is a bit more nonlinear in appearance than most of the aspects of our Teaching.

 

It “makes no sense” to some of our channels and students; therefore the topic is dismissed or vaguely understood. In nearly all aspects of our Teaching there is an order and consistency that can be counted on, but some aspects of the universe, while still sustaining an awesome order, may not “fit in” with the patterns of every other thing you have come to understand. We assure you though; there is still an awesome order and compassionate intelligence behind even the most bewildering parts of the universe, known and unknown.

 

First, we will define “INPUT” as a channel or frequency through which an Essence becomes aware, processes, and comprehends.

 

3 of the Roles in Essence have ONE INPUT; these are the Scholar, Warrior, and King Essences.

2 of the Roles in Essence have TWO INPUTS; these are the Priest and Server.

1 of the Roles in Essence has THREE INPUTS; this is the Sage.

1 of the Roles in Essence has FIVE INPUTS; this is the Artisan.

 

The strange distribution of Inputs has to do with the Roles themselves acting as “sensory units,” so to speak, for Tao.

 

Because the Physical Plane is of the most unique and densest of all Planes, three Roles in Essence are distributed with ONE INPUT so as to gain awareness, Process, and Comprehend FROM BEGINNING TO END in a linear fashion inherent to the Physical Plane. By default, Warriors and Kings are ACTION AXIS Roles and therefore inherently have ONE INPUT, as that is “natural” to Action. Being the most comfortable and compatible with the Physical Plane, Tao (or “the universe”) is able to gain profound experiences through the linear process of gaining awareness and comprehension.

 

The Scholars (who are the memory cells of Tao in many ways) have ONE INPUT so as to maintain a direct link to the Akashic Records/Plane. Because Scholars are specifically designed as ambient, experiential “sponges”, this ONE INPUT allows them to act as excellent, direct, recording devices and conduits between the Physical Plane and the Akashic Plane. Although all fragments update their own records (usually having to be done between lives or through conscious awareness), Scholars do so for themselves, their Entity, and/or Cadre.

 

Because Scholars, Warriors, and Kings are by nature inclined to focus on very specific themes for study, conquest, or mastery (respectively), having One Input allows them to excel in the Task at Hand (by standards of Essence.)

 

With this understanding, it would not be amiss to say that ALL FRAGMENTS have at least One Input focused on NOW, or in other words, capable of being focused on the present, the task at hand, the moment, etc.

 

The Inspiration Roles of Priest and Server have an additional Input as a means to maintain a connection to what INSPIRES them. In general, the Two Inputs for the Priest will have one focused on the Task At Hand, while the other maintains the Vision, or Higher Ideal. For the Server, one Input is focused on the Task At Hand, while the other is focused on the Common Good, or WHAT IS NEEDED.

 

Inspirational Roles were the Tao’s idea of providing the universe with a means to provide for ALL FRAGMENTS an access to something “beyond the moment.” It could be said that the Priest then provides access to “what is beyond the Self”, while the Server provides access to “what is within the Self.”

 

In general, the Expression Roles are the means for the Tao to continue reinventing or transforming itself throughout the Planes.

 

As Kings and Warriors we can attest to the importance of the “pesky Sage” and the “kooky Artisans” as the single- or double-input Roles can tend to take to life a bit more “seriously”. Artisans and Sages can certainly be serious, which tends to be interpreted as “dramatic”, but they do bring a much-needed levity to the density of the Physical Plane.

 

The Sage, in addition to the one Input focused on the Task At Hand, will have a second Input to sustain connection to whatever that fragment deems is “the Truth,” while a third Input is focused on the expression of that Truth. This can be translated rather simply as a Sage having an Input for gauging his Audience (task at hand), his Truth, and how to express that to the Audience.

 

The Artisan, having the most Inputs, is the Tao’s means to constantly keep the universe “fresh,” revitalized, and “alive.” They are the guarantee in the Universe that ideas of the Tao can continue to come into existence. All Roles are expressions of Tao, of course, but Artisans are more a direct conduit for Tao than can sometimes be comprehended by the mundane levels of life.

 

The Single-Input Roles are focused on directly experiencing the Planes, the Dual-Input Roles are focused on expanding beyond them, the Triple-Input Role is focused on keeping the truth entertaining, and the Quintet-Input Role is focused on creating new contexts for it all.

 

The Artisan then has one Input on the Task At Hand, another on generating creativity, another on maintaining or generating the manifestation of a previous creation, another on maintaining or generating the medium of that manifestation, and a final Input that is literally tuned to All That Has Come To Be. Artisans are CHANGE manifested; therefore they are tuned to those five dimensions of Creativity.

 

This is simply a basic introduction to the Inputs and why they are distributed in this manner among the Roles, but there is a great deal more information available about these aspects of Essence. We will take your questions now.

 

[val2] If a sage has three inputs what happens when they have an Artisan for essence twins and task companions; are they adding to their inputs?

 

[M_Entity] Though “bleedthrough” can tend to lend seemingly extra dimensional awareness to the default Inputs of a Role, they are NOT “added” to the Inputs. Because of the intimate nature between Essence Twins and between Task Companions, there is a level of communication and assessment that does allow a potential, alternative angle of Input, but this is no different from asking for a friend’s opinion, so to speak. The use of the “opinion” may or may not influence the ability for you to use of your own Inputs appropriately, but they do not literally get added in.

 

[Suzanne] Michael, how does frequency tie into the one input for warrior? I have a rather high 65 for a warrior, being sage cast, and can multitask well.

 

[M_Entity]
In the younger soul ages the Inputs can tend to manifest in ways affected by the general design of the soul, but as the soul gains experience, so does it gain the ability to utilize the Input more appropriately. As the Essence evolves, so does its ability to seek out the experiences through which balance can be attained and maintained. This eventual balance applies to all extremes of design, from the highly-Focused or highly-Creative Energy Ratio to high or low Frequencies.

 

To respond directly to your example, a simple interpretation of a Higher Frequency matched with One Input could be that the movement toward Awareness, through a Process, and to Comprehension (the triad of each Input), is “faster” than a Lower Frequency with One Input.

 

“Multitasking” is not an indicator of the number of Inputs; it is a sign of adaptability within your current culture. A One-Input Role and a Five-Input Role can equally “multitask”, but the method and internal experience for each may be quite different.

 

[ClaireN] Could you please explain how the last 4 Artisan inputs are experienced in a life?

 

[M_Entity]
This will be highly simplistic, but we think we may be able to describe a familiar scenario:

 

For an Artisan, other than the Moment, or Task At Hand, there will always seem to be a need for something NEW, a search inside or out for the Muse or Inspiration. This could be said to be Channel 2. This could manifest as simply as an idea or as profoundly as a deep, spiritual inspirational move to creativity. In general then Channel 2 would be the channel that Searches, Desires, Knows, and NEEDS to create change.

 

Channel 3 then will be focused on trying to “finish” that which has being created previously, ranging from a new job, new move, to a new art project. Channel 3 monitors your “children,” so to speak.

 

Channel 4 then is focused on the HOW of a project or path of change. This can range from choosing your colors and clay for an art project, to designing or finding the path that is capable of actually being the conduit or medium for the creation or change. Channel 4 can be said to be your “mapping system.”

 

Channel 5 is the broadest Channel, or Input, as it is simultaneously aware of all that has come to pass and all the probabilities of the future, and the entire dance that is possible among them. This can show up in an Artisan’s life as the part of them that is painfully aware of the past and its supposed mistakes, while desperately aware of an idealized utopia of a distant future of their making. However it shows up, it can be said to be the Channel that is constantly COMPARING. As we said, this is highly simplistic, but a bit more for you to consider as we share this information over time.

 

[Kathryn41] How does casting influence input? Does a multi-input casting position add dimensionality to a single input role, and a single input casting position adds focus for a multi-input role?

 

[M_Entity]
Your Role in Essence is how Tao experiences the Lower Planes “through you,” while the Casting (being more permanent and pervasive) could be said to be how Tao experiences “through you” while transiting the Higher Planes.

 

While Physical, your Casting (in terms of Input) is the most directly available “alternative” means of Input, but it is ONLY THAT, an alternative. Casting is a POSITION relative to a group, while your Role in Essence IS YOU. Casting as an alternative Input is accessed in that way VERY RARELY and usually when access to multidimensional awareness is sought. Some Channels, Healers, and legitimate Psychics tend to access Casting Input influences, if necessary. For most, it is your Role in Essence that defines your Inputs.

 

[JNelson] It would seem every Fragment is capable of experiencing the world like the way an Artisan does through each Input. How does it manifest uniquely in an Artisan compared to everyone else?

 

[M_Entity]
We remind you that what we describe is the ESSENCE'S experience, not necessarily the Personality's. This is where some confusion comes in.

 

The Personality of every single Fragment, regardless of its Essence, has the ability to design Overleaves that are more or less focused, inspirational, creative, or entertaining. Examining your Overleaves in relation to the Axis can reveal the way your Personality filters the world FOR Essence. This expands on the possibilities of all Fragments then. That is why a Warrior can be absolutely creative, and an Artisan can “kick ass.” This is not to say the design of Overleaves has an effect on how Essence INPUTS, but rather, it does help explain why varying Fragments feel they EXPERIENCE or BEHAVE in ways different than our Input descriptions define.

 

The way the Five Inputs manifest MOST uniquely could be in the final examination of how an Artisan processes a life. Artisans do not process experiences directly or with focus, but rather have varying levels of commitment to varying themes in their lives. A Warrior may find a theme and find himself compelled to stick through it until everything that can possibly be “milked” from it is. An Artisan, on the other hand, may find she has many patterns in her life, all repeating and being highlighted and revisited in varying stages of her life.

 

The most defining aspect of the Artisan, in terms of inputs, could be said to be in their deeply restless search for “something.” Although this trait can be attributed to any fragment, we are speaking in far more profound ways than a simple distraction for a Personality. The Artisan has a “knowing” that there is so much more than what is seen and yet is it is not touchable until she creates it. This “knowing” vs “creating” can either fuse the Personality and Essence into a powerful force of creativity, or the Personality begins to splinter and reject the Essence. Delusion and retreat then become more and more the emphasis of Channel Four

 

[Anne751] The queues are finished for the night.

 

[M_Entity] Then we are finished. Good Night.

Note from Janet, 9/8/17: I found the following additional info that apparently was appended to the original transcript via comments.

 

CHANNELED RESPONSES FROM MICHAEL [following chat]

 

Question:
Quote from Michael: "First, we will define "INPUT" as a channel or frequency through which an Essence becomes aware, processes, and comprehends."

 

This is one of the largest problems I have understanding Inputs. How are they different from Centers? I'm used to thinking of Centers and their Parts are the "input" and "output" of a person. Here, Inputs seem to take the place of Centers.

 

MICHAEL:
CENTERS are a specific dimension of experience and/or expression, and while they are contexts with which the process of life occurs, they are not the actual processing, itself. As Centers do have an "input" and an "output" (which could be alternatively described as "Experience"/"Expression" of the Center), they are contexts shared by shared by most living beings and they are not unique to Sentience.

 

ALL living things have an Instinctive Center, for instance, while Bees and other community Insects or schools of Fish are primarily, purely Moving Centered; Higher Mammals, especially those who live interactively with Humans are primarily, purely Emotionally Centered (even the Feline), while Higher Primates, such as Chimpanzees begin to become capable of being Intellectually Centered. However, without an individualized Consciousness that is Sentient, there will be no Inputs to differentiate how each Being would create and process a life.

 

Centers are functions and tools of the Bodies of the Physical Plane. "Outside" of the Physical Plane, they are seen more accurately as the varying contexts of interaction with Tao.

 

Inputs, however, are part of the unique design of Sentience and the varying Essence Roles.

 

The number of Inputs you have simply describes how you would use ANY of the tools available to you, whether this be your Attitude or your Centering. It would lend you greater understanding if you were to differentiate between the fact of Essence's manner of processing vs the tools available as a means to support that processing.

 

Inputs, whether having One, Two, Three, or Five, is simply the number of themes ESSENCE is capable of:

 

Stage 1. Gaining Awareness within
Stage 2. Processes that Awareness
Stage 3. Comprehends what has been Processed

 

Applying that Triad to each Input, and that Input's main focus, can help you understand how your Essence processes the life.

 

In general, Kings, Warriors, and Scholars, can "only" process one theme at a time, whether the Personality is submerged in several experiential themes or not. If needed, the focus of the Input can change for some lengths of time, but these Roles will not find the comfort and adaptability to be submerged in several themes at once. We are not speaking of their being capable of watching TV while sewing. We are speaking of actual life themes as they apply to Essence's digestion of them.

 

Scholars, Warriors, and Kings move steadily and enduringly through their experiences until comprehension is attained. We say "comprehension" as it applies to ESSENCE, not necessarily Personality. Until the Older Soul Ages, Personality is not so concerned with comprehension simultaneously to Essence's comprehension.

 

Question: I'm curious about the Michael Math behind the number of Inputs given to specific Roles. I suspect there is more to be told.

 

MICHAEL:
Though meaning could be found in the numerical values and distribution, it would an arbitrary assignment of meaning and symbolism. Inputs are similar to the function of varying digestive systems; some have one stomach, some have four, etc. The meaning behind the number of Inputs has more to do with the particular "species" of Essence and its inclination toward certain experiential "diets" than anything else.

 

Question: This is a generic Michael question beyond just Inputs, but I'm wondering how Scholars keep "records" differently from other Roles.

 

MICHAEL:
Scholars not only manage their own Records, but as each Essence updates its own records within the Entity and Cadre, the Scholars update the Akashic Records. In other words, each Essence has its own "personal library", but the Scholar extends on that to make that information "universal". Keeping that information as up-to-date, so to speak, as possible allows many versions of consciousness and sentience to draw from it. This is the stuff of new universes.

 

Scholars have One Input as having One Input increases the durability to indulge in specific experiences, rather than touching briefly on a theme, and then moving to new ones, then returning later with new awareness.

 

Scholars complete their themes so as to have a "purer" experience.

 

Question:
Quoting Michael: "Channel 4, then is focused on the HOW of a project or path of change. This can range from choosing your colors and clay for an art project, to designing or finding the path that is capable of being the conduit or medium for the creation or change."

 

Again, can't everyone focus on choosing colors and clay for an art project? Does this mean that the Artisan Essence is constantly focused on such selections?

 

MICHAEL:
A Warrior may choose its material for a creative project, but that will be within the confines of its One Input, or one theme. In other words, that creative project ALTOGETHER will have a Stage 2, which may BE the choosing of materials.

 

For an Artisan, though, the choosing of a medium will have its OWN Stage 2.

Thank you Janet for having this channeled. I was thinking about inputs the other day. I have one input and it can be difficult at times. When I'm working on a project, researching something, reading a book, watching a movie, etc. I can't have any distractions or it throws me off track and I lose focus. When I'm at work I'm probably one of the best in my workgroup at multitasking but even at times I have to hide out in a conference room and work in there because there are no outside distractions. My husband teases me all the time about having one input and how obvious it is.

From what I've garnered it seems like Essence without a role has 5 Channels for experiencing the awareness, processing and comprehension of themes through personality.
These channels are: the MOMENT, the INSPIRATION, the MONITORING OF CREATIONS, the HOW THINGS CAN BE DONE, and the SIGHT/COMPARISON OF ALL THAT'S COME TO BE.

For 1 Input ROLES, all of these can only be experienced one at a time. This is because the key characteristic for these roles are that whatever they focus on, they FOCUS on it. They are the embodiment of the channel focused on the moment.
For Warriors this focus is on CONQUEST, for Kings on MASTERY, and for Scholars on STUDY.

For 2 Input ROLES, all of these channels are experienced with a sense of something beyond the moment. The key characteristic here is that whatever they focus on, there is INSPIRATION/MEANING to be gathered and expanded as they have that experience. They embody the channels focused on moment and inspiration.
Warriors, Kings and Scholars experience inspiration as its own thing after they've finished a theme, but Servers and Priests gather+evolve it as they have their experience.
For Servers this inspiration is the COMMON GOOD/WHAT'S NEEDED FOR YOU- for Priests it's the HIGHER GOOD/WHAT'S BEST FOR EVERYONE.

For the 3 Input Sage ROLE, all of these channels are experienced theatrically. The key characteristic here is that whatever they focus on, they make it into something FUN AND ENTERTAINING. They embody the channels focused on moment, inspiration and monitoring.
Warriors, Kings, Scholars, Priests and Servers experience entertainment+monitoring, but it's its own thing after they've finished a theme & gathered inspiration.
Sages entertain through COMMUNICATING THE TRUTH they've found/coalesced.

For the 5 Input Artisan ROLE, all of these channels are experienced creatively. The key characteristic here is that whatever they focus on, they let it bring CHANGE/make it into something CREATIVE as it happens. They embody the channels focused on moment, inspiration, monitoring, how-to and comparing everything all at once.
Warriors, Kings, Scholars, Priests, Servers and Sages experience Change+Creativity through figuring out how to do things & comparing everything, but its its own thing after they've finished a theme, gathered inspiration and entertained notions.
Artisans create through INNOVATION+REVITALIZATION.


EDIT: I differentiated Inputs from Channels.
Channels are the 5 things of life (aka. moment, inspiration, monitoring, strategy, comparison of everything) that every sentient fragment must bring awareness to, process, and fully comprehend.
But Inputs are what the Role can receive from those channels.

1 Input roles can only focus on one channel at a time, then once they're done they can move on to another.

2 Input roles can focus on two channels at a time, but they can hold onto a sense of expanding inspiration/meaning in both of those at the same time.
3 Input roles can focus on three channels at a time, but they can bring entertainment out of all of those at the same time.
5 Input roles can focus on all five channels at a time, but they can see/bring creativity and change out of all those at the same time.

I definitely have an input. I've always focused on one theme at a time.

Okay, this is a giant thought. Mind blown. Transiting the Higher Planes.

I feel that this exchange with Michael might be useful with the topic. 

 

From a private session on December 21, 2015:

 

Janet: Just to clarify — the casting does not add inputs does it?

 

MEntity: Casting does not add Input, but it does affect Input.

 

Janet: That is interesting. Can you expand on that a bit? I have not heard this.

 

MEntity:
Imagine the Input of Role as being how far one can turn one's head, and the Input of Casting is how many chairs one has for changing direction.

 

So, a Scholar with One Input can only ever "look" straight ahead, but can change seats to see in different directions.

 

An Artisan-Cast Artisan can not only turn her head in 5 directions, but she then has 5 different directions in which to seat herself.

 

Janet: You beat me to the question. So I can see everywhere! lol

 

MEntity:
Being able to "see everywhere" can have its challenges and strengths, as well as the single seat and single input.

 

No combination is a limitation over any other. They are merely different. Each will have their pros and cons and challenges and strengths.
