17. THE THOUGHT OR THETA UNIVERSE
The final prison universe built below the Symbols Universe was called, by its inhabitants, the Thought or Theta Universe (depending on how you want to translate it). They considered themselves to be Thought People in contrast to the Body People of the next lower prison universe (which they built). But they were not thought people in the true sense. What they really were was energy beings. So maybe we should call this the "Energy Universe".
The transfer incident down to this universe sends you down a sort of 4 dimensional spiral staircase. It basically lays in the idea that you are an energy unit and can be effected by energy and it gets you to build what Dianetics and Scientology refer to as the reactive mind. From here on you can be effected by force and you tend to accumulate incidents of pain and unconsciousness which further abberate your behavior. As you go down the staircase, things seem to shrink strangely in the distance while remaining near by. This is because you are curving off in a 4th dimensional direction. With each step, the staircase disappears in blackness and you get an implant item. Then it reappears and you're taking another step downward. The implant includes the materials run on the clearing course.
The body here is a circle or globe of energy and it can be trapped and hurt by energy. And unfortunately, we were stupid enough to think that we were these energy bodies and therefore could be kicked around and conditioned by the use of force. This is the era of the Thetan as an energy unit and it is pretty high and powerful compared to people living as bodies, but it is far lower than the Thetan living as a "god".
And here we have the endless aberrations of energy and the abuse and misuse of force. But we also have what is still a very thought oriented society with a tremendous level of creation and aesthetics.
This universe starts around 4.5 Quadrillion years ago. The goal for this universe seems to be to create effects on others especially through the use of emotion. There was some sort of whole track word for this which I will translate as "To Emotionate".
People could kick into each other so heavily that the next lower prison universe was built fairly quickly, maybe around 2.8 Quadrillion years ago. At this point, beings were still coming down from the symbols universe.
Throughout our history, we had been projecting mockups of bodies but had never been really restricted by them. But now we actually believed ourselves to be energy bodies and the next logical step was to condition the convicts being sent down to the next universe into thinking that they were physical bodies made of matter.
And so we built what we then thought of as the "MEST" or "Physical" Universe as a prison where everybody would be in a body and subject to physical laws. But since it was not the current universe, and since we also think of this one as a MEST or Physical universe, it will avoid confusion if I give this some other name. Based on the subsequent events, I will refer to it as the "Conflicts Universe".
And the implant which took us down from the Thought Universe to the Conflicts Universe laid in a terrible compulsion for using bodies, but it was otherwise defective and the prisoners broke out and counter invaded the thought universe from the conflicts universe resulting in the Theta-MEST Wars.
18. THE THETA - MEST WARS
In the conflicts universe, the body type is a body as we know it, although there were no internal guts or biochemical processes. Externally it might look human (or whatever) whereas internally it was more like a homogenous mass with a few gizmos (electrical coils or whatever) inside of it. And imposed into it would be an energy pattern of golden globes etc. used by the person (who thought of himself as an energy being) to control the body.
Because of the defective nature of the implant, the prisoners escaped and counter invaded the Thought universe. This is the Theta-MEST wars with body people invading against the thought people. Most of the theta line incidents described in Hubbard's History of Man are from this time period.
The war went on endlessly (only the big super long wars are worth mentioning in this history since they are the only ones that had any significant effect on everybody) with people switching sides occasionally so that everyone has the experience of being the thought people fighting back against the invading body people and vise versa.
The only people who were not involved initially were those last few who were still up in the Symbols Universe. But the war got very interesting and went on and on and gradually these Symbols Universe people became avid spectators. Around 2.48 Quadrillion years ago, the final crew came down as Gods from the symbols universe and joined the war. Everyone was tossed through the universe shifting implant many times and eventually we all wound up in the Conflicts universe as body people.
Near the end of the wars, the crossing back and forth between the 2 universes became very great and more and more transfer points and common anchor points were established until the 2 universes sort of collapsed together. This formed a sort of layered universe with a material plane and a thought plane (where you went between lives). One was quite aware of living physical lives and being an energy being between lives (in an energy body which kept re- incarnating in the physical).
19. THE CONFLICTS (or MEST) UNIVERSE
After the collapse, there is a long time period of living in the resulting "MEST" universe. The goal of this universe was to gain bodily experience and sensation. The environment is mostly flat worlds in space (continents in the sky). The wars had been so extreme that we feared to build a lower prison universe for fear of starting the whole mess over again.
Again there is a long and interesting creative period building societies and civilizations. But as always, there was an undue amount of conflict and people wouldn't leave each other alone. Some people just wanted make slaves of their fellow man. Others were trying to make everybody good. But in either case, the effort was to make people obey and walk in straight lines and the counter effort was to have revolutions etc. And anyone who tried to step aside from this and "cure" the insanity was stupid enough (thanks to the misleading information in the jewel of knowledge) to try to do it by implanting even more conditioning, which only made matters worse.
Since bodies were of tremendous importance, but the person carried on in an energy form even after the body died, it was possible to push someone into a body, kill it off, and then pull him out, push him into another body, and then kill that one too. So the predominant form of conditioning used here consisted of repetitive deaths and heavy pains and sensations. Here the person can be mauled around by force and it is used either to make slaves or to force people to be good depending on which team you were playing on. Here you might suffer endless car crashes or be thrown out of the door of an aircraft and go splat on the ground over and over again while they try to lay in various stupid orders and conditioning.
Near the end, a group formed that was going to take care of everybody once and for all. It would bring about peace by holding everybody under its sway and it would solve the social problems by having a rigid social structure. This was the "Magic Kingdom of Gilead" (approximate translation). It had the innocuous appearance of a castle beside a lake on one of the continents drifting around in the sky. But they had salvaged some of the higher dimensional technology from earlier universes and internally this castle went on infinitely with the 3 dimensional corridors curving off slightly at 4 dimensional angles so that the castle was quite capable of housing the entire population of the universe.
Giliead was set up as a "pyramid" society where new recruits came in as servants and everyone else bumped up a level in the social hierarchy when enough people came in to fill the lower strata. In other words, social status and privileges were based on how early you joined the society and when it began to look like they were going to take over all of civilization, there was a tremendous influx of recruits who were quite willing to work temporarily as servants with the expectation that they would be overseers later as the rest of the population joined. But of course this tapered off when the remaining people saw that they would be forever stuck in the lower positions. And so the Knights of Giliead (armed with energy weapons and riding flying horses) set out to conquer the remaining peoples of the universe.
This pattern of a stratified pyramidal society trying to take over the universe and make slaves out of the majority of people has been followed frequently. Our modern day Hitlers are but the tiniest shadow of these super organized societies that live by continual expansion and enslavement. But they inevitably collapse when their expansion is blocked either by running out of new people or by a determined military resistance. The three really big ones were Alpha Prime in the Symbols Universe, Giliead as discussed here, and Arslycus in the current universe. All of them had populations in the trillions and their collapse always has a bit of the feeling of the collapse of home universe even though none of them were really nice places for anyone who wasn't at the top of the heap.
Eventually, around 200 trillion years ago, we did build a lower prison universe. This was probably done to provide a fitting place to dump the rulers of Giliead after its collapse.
But we still had a great deal of worry about a prison breakout triggering something like the Theta-MEST wars again. So this time, the prison was intentionally made a fairly nice place so the prisoners would stay there. The transfer implant used a volcano on a flat earth copy of the original earth. A path lined with statues of the penalty universe terminals (the tiger, the bear, etc.) lead up to the peak where one was tossed in and went on down to the prison universe.
People were weary of the constant conflicts, so around 181 trillion years ago, there began a wave of mass suicides where everyone threw themselves into the volcano to "die" as beings and be reborn in the next lower universe.
Eventually this next prison universe came to be known as the Magic Universe.
20. THE MAGIC UNIVERSE
Entry to the magic universe has an incident which shows you a wizard who floats out over the water from an Arabian style ship while holding a glowing ball between his hands.
The bodies again look like meat bodies but internally they have a structure based on the Chakras described in Eastern Metaphysics. Many of the early medical dub-ins such as the blood running in tides (instead of circulating) and "humors" etc. might also be part of the physical anatomy of the magic universe bodies.
Many of the wrong ideas that people believe instinctively (whether superstition or incorrect science) were actually true in the magic universe. People are just behind the times so to speak.
Based on the inspiration of the eventual 2 layered structure of the thought + conflicts universe, the magic universe was constructed with a physical layer plus a heavenly layer and a demonic layer. Dead people went around in a visible spirit body which was the older body mockup of the conflicts universe.
The goal of this universe was "To Enjoy" and it was primarily a hedonistic pleasure seeking place. It was quite heavily oriented to sex etc. Fantasy stories and fairy tales and most current metaphysical and witchcraft ideas are based on vague recollections of the magic universe.
But, as always, you have some people trying to lord it over others and you have another group trying their best to condition people to make them good.
Here the definition of the game called for many gods and goddesses, demons and devils. And many came down willingly from the conflicts universe armed with higher level knowledge to establish themselves in these positions.
And the games and wars and whathaveyou went on for the usual long period of time until a need for yet a lower prison universe was agreed upon by all. And so the current physical universe was built.
After being sentenced in court, the prisoner usually goes down a spiral path lined with statues of the penalty universe terminals and ends up at a sort of Greek style pool at the center where he is pushed under and finds himself shifted to this universe.
21. THE CURRENT PHYSICAL (or Space Opera) UNIVERSE
Our universe was built as a prison 86 trillion years ago. The sentencing process includes passing through a sort of implant universe which tells him that this is the universe of physical force and then lays in the goals that he is supposed to live by in this universe (things such as being successful, popular, intelligent, strong, etc.) but putting them in with a twist so that he will forever get in trouble trying to do them. Of course the implant is at the beginning of time (and says so) but it is only the beginning of time for this stupid little universe and not for our eons long existence.
At first, people would escape and be in the magic universe for awhile and then get sent here again (receiving the implant again). The magic universe remained in existence (and is still there although it is very contracted and almost deserted).
In recent times, the remaining kings and wizards, seeing that most of the action and people were down here, relocated themselves by forming up invader forces and trying to take over this universe.
There are some parts of this universe where we have attempted to recreate magic universe operation and which to some degree imitate the magic universe. One difference is that space in this universe is dark whereas in the magic universe, the space is light (radiant).
Most science fiction contains vague recollections of the history of this universe.
The goal of this universe is "To Survive". The normal emotional tone level (as described by L. Ron Hubbard) is in the 0 to 4 band. There may be a many layered structure of "astral" planes in addition to the physical level in places where someone has taken the trouble to build these using higher dimensional technology carried down from the higher universes.
Again there was a big society which tried to make slaves out of everybody. This was Arslycus. It was a great city in space and was researched to some degree by L. Ron Hubbard in 1952. If you will think about building in three dimensions instead of 2 (on the surface of the Earth), it should be obvious that a space city occupying a spherical volume equal to the size of the solar system would have more "land" area that all the planets of the galaxy combined. And gradually they captured all of the populations of the outlying spiral arms of this galaxy. Their main activity was implanting people to be slaves.
An equally viscous group of religious fanatics, known as Helatrobus, was entrenched in the center of the galaxy busily implanting people to be good. Gradually the Galactic Empire (millions of planets in the center of the galaxy) came under their sway, began using implants to solve social unrest, and ceased to be a nice place.
These two groups came to blows and fought a war that just about wrecked the galaxy a few hundred million years ago. It pretty much resulted in their mutual destruction. You might say that Arslycus won because they collapsed the center of the galaxy into a black hole which formed the next lower prison universe (the mud universe) where the remnants of Helatrobus now rule. But it was a Phyrric victory since Arslycus was also shattered. This ended around 167 million years ago.
Of course there have also been plenty of subsequent little empires that have claimed to be the continuation of Hellotrobus (like having Constantinople and the Holy Roman Empire around long after Rome fell to the barbarians).
Since then, there have only been petty little empires and the usual operations of civilized man. And if you object to calling these later glorious empires "little", please realize that an empire with a thousand planets would hardly be bigger than a dust mote on a picture of our galaxy with its billions of stars.
The galaxy has, to some degree, remained in a dark age ever since, with petty kingdoms fighting wars and buisily implanting their citizens.
Eventually the invader waves started coming in from the magic universe to add a little spice to the action. These invader forces would generally be formed up by a few kings and wizards grabbing entire planetary populations and dragging them back up to the magic universe briefly for advanced training and implanting followed by returning here in a wave of conquest.
The body types in this universe are generally humanoid ( 2 arms, 2 legs, etc.) but not necessarily human. This is in keeping with the penalty universe designs that we have tended to fixate on more and more. The more exotic types of bodies sometimes envisioned by the science fiction writers actually hearken to earlier universes where we had a bit more free thought and our mockups were more diverse.
Things are not really as simple here as they seem. To make things this solid and immune to thought, everything is setup on a very indirect basis. We carry all of our earlier universe experience along as baggage and we hide a good bit of it from ourselves and keep it out of sight.
The real structure of our bodies actually carries our entire "evolution" (or "devolution") with it. The bodies consist of a physical body generated by an astral body (a hidden immaterial version of the old magic universe style body) which is generated by a spirit body (the old conflicts universe body) which is projected by an energy body (thought universe) which is projected by a symbol body (symbols universe) which is in turn projected by a mask (motion universe) which is projected by a basic object (games universe) which is mocked up from one's operating space. I.E.., the people operate through many layers of vias to keep themselves and their stuff from being hit. The higher level forms are very carefully hidden and the being wouldn't even let himself know for fear that someone will read his mind and zap them. The person dies in a physical body and then stupidly runs around in an "astral" body where he can still be hit (and is still carrying around tons of baggage) until he can hook up to a new physical body.
If the person were smart, he would step outside of the whole mess and be like a god again. Occasionally, some people do. Unfortunately, they then proceed to get into even more conflicts and trouble and wind up right back in the soup again. They perpetuate their early aberrations instead of facing up to them. Even the gods fall prey to the early stupid and self-destructive ideas such as jealousy and vengeance. Everyone swallowed the jewel of knowledge hook, line, and sinker and believes it to this day.
22. THE MUD UNIVERSE
The next lower prison universe has already been built. The entry point is through a black hole at the center of our galaxy. They are already tossing people into it, but its just started so most people come back up and out pretty quick. Most people on Earth, being of the troublesome type that gets sent to prison planets etc. have probably been down there once or twice already.
It seems like Hellotrobus structured the mud universe as their last act in this galaxy. The remnants of the old Hellotrobian hierarchy may be in power there now.
In the Mud Universe, space is very solid, feeling like molasses. The goal of this universe is To Persist. Note that survival implies continuing to struggle to live whereas persist implies simply hanging on as a rock or whatever. The normal tone band (i.e.. the thetan plus body range) is -8 up to 0. It is an unpleasant place.
23. WHERE ARE WE NOW
We are not in the Mud Universe at this time (although many of you may have visited there briefly). But we do seem to be in some sort of a local prison within the physical (space opera) universe.
Although this planet may have had some good times, it is a copy of the original Earth and therefore tends to be selected for whatever nefarious deeds are required by the local space empires. Its recent use as a prison planet is probably the result of a war, with the soldiers of a captured army being dumped here. It might also have its compliment of political prisoners, revolutionaries, and real criminals. It has previously been used for mass implanting on the same basis of being a copy of the original Earth.
The prison machinery has to be elaborate enough to keep the prisoners from simply reincarnating back in normal society and starting to raise hell.
Advanced technology allows the manipulation of multiple three dimensional spaces in a four dimensional framework. The entire solar system (out to about 1.3 light-years) is handled in this way (there is a set of 12 stations, sort of like the zodiac, surrounding the solar system at that distance).
The entire structure (this solar system) has been copied sideways in a 4th dimensional direction to form a "heavenly plane" on one side of us and a "hell plane" on the other. These are not very thick in a 4D sense and therefore are a bit ethereal giving them a bit of an "astral" (spirit-like) quality. They are like positive and negative plates between which our reality is suspended. Earth as we know it is very thick (thousands of layers) along the 4D axis with a dead spot in the center that acts like a mirror. What we normally see is in this mirror which is reflecting the thousands of "real" copies to either side. One of the reasons you can't grab the things you see with your thoughts is that there really is nothing where you are looking. You have to reach in funny directions to grab an object with your mind and move it around.
Don't get all religious about the heaven and hell planes at the far edges of the prison. This is like painting the top floor of one of our penitentiaries and fixing it up to look like heaven according to legends remaining from the magic universe. Similarly, we could fix up the basement to look like hell. Then we give the guards costumes as angels or devils. The best prisoners are given an occasional day in heaven and the real troublemakers are occasionally thrown into hell. But its all part of the prison machinery and the supposed angels and devils are all really guards who work together to keep the convicts confused and under control. The guards might play good/evil type games to keep themselves amused, but they are basically guards and they never really loose sight of that fact.
With the prisoners so horribly conditioned and brainwiped between lives, there is not much danger of a prison revolt. But there is also the possibility that the prison might collapse. If anything were to destroy the Earth, they would suddenly have far too many people on their hands and at least some would escape out into the galaxy at large. So they must protect the world from destruction. And yet they must leave us with advanced scientific knowledge to support the ever growing numbers of prisoners. They encouraged a scientific revolution so that the population could expand and now they have the constant difficulty of our blowing ourselves up and destroying the world in various ways.
But there is a technical solution to this given the ability to manipulate 3 dimensional spaces in 4 dimensions. You can store copies of the 3D space sideways along the 4th axis. Imagine that we are living on a flat sheet of paper. The paper changes constantly, but occasionally someone makes a xerox copy of the page. If the paper ever catches fire and burns up, they pull the last xerox out of the file and everything goes on from there. You will see the same thing if you play a computer video game that you can save and restore. If the game goes very badly, you can always go back to a previous copy. If you try this, you will also notice that after restoring an earlier copy of the game, you have some knowledge of the "future" even though things will go slightly differently. This is the real explanation of "deja vu" (remembering the future when it happens again).
One recent example was in 1963 when president Richard M. Nixon launched a nuclear war that destroyed the planet. As we all began dying in droves, the prison machinery was used to restore a copy of the Earth taken in 1957. We were all conditioned to go back to what we were doing in 1957 and life picks up with a second pass through 1957 to 1963. Of course they intervene slightly and Kennedy is elected by the barest margin. Since he begins introducing major changes and because everyone unconsciously expects something bad to happen in 1963 anyway, he is assassinated and things begin to settle back down to their normal course. Nixon even gets to be president later with less ill effects.
These "backup" copies of the earth appear to be taken every 5 years in February of the years ending in either a 2 or a 7 (i.e.. 1952, 1957, 1962, etc.).
When they restore and earlier version, they don't like to back up too far because they have the problem of the growing population (as more prisoners are added). Pushing earth time back too far gives them a host of newer prisoners who have noplace to go. Small numbers can be handled by using animal bodies for a brief time, but large numbers require setting up "holding tanks" on yet another copy of the earth further sideways along the 4D axis. This gives us a bunch of weird "preternatural" earths that some people will have experienced just before birth (and right after the previous time they died in this lifetime).
As you can see, this makes a terrible jumble of one's history. Nobody in their right mind, catching a halfway glimpse of the truth, would believe it, because things are not in the simple logical order that you would expect. You wonder why his recollection of Christmas 1957 doesn't match the facts? Maybe he's recalling a different time that he lived through 1957. Does he remember a funny incident when there seemed to be old steam boilered fire engines on the streets of modern New York, well that's a much earlier pass through the 1950s and things were slightly different. We have been reliving the 20th century for quite a long time.
A person's actual experience might include quite a few reincarnations on earth. But he might have lived through the last one or two incarnations a large number of times and he might even have another incarnation "up in the future" that he's been through a couple times as well. And in between, there might be visits to heavens, hells, pre-birth worlds, and even a few stints where he was forced to work in the between lives administrative area to keep this whole complex show on the road. Now mix in tons of heavy conditioning to keep him confused as all hell, and you have a true picture of today's human being here on Earth.
This paints a pretty depressing picture. But its no more than frantic hand waving meant to keep a god so confused and distracted that he wouldn't remember who he is or what he can do.
Here is a brief list of the universes:
a. Separation from static
b. Jewel of Knowledge
1. Creation period
2. The Mis-aligned spaces
3. The Agreements Universe
4. Home Universe
5. Games Universe
6. Motion Universe
7. Symbols Universe
8. Thought Universe
9. Conflicts Universe
10. Magic Universe
11. Current Universe
12. Mud Universe.
It is quite possible that I have gotten some of the details wrong. For example, it wouldn't surprise me if it turned out that Giliead was in the Magic Universe instead of the Conflicts Universe. And I have intentionally avoided mentioning things which are still highly speculative. So do not take this literal mindedly or assume that it is complete. It is the barest sketch of a framework and further research is needed.
Some of you may think that I have an overly active imagination. In that case I invite you to enjoy the above as an entertaining piece of fiction. I do hope that you will begin to research your past existance and attempt to determine who and what we are. I do not insist that you find the same answers that I did.
Take this roadmap and use it as a suggestion for things to look at. Don't simply swallow it as a matter of faith. Wrong ideas are not harmful unless you blindly insist that they are correct, otherwise you would simply have a good laugh.
