Talk:Individuated Unit Of Consciousness
Should this instead say that you are a FWAU, a part of an IUOC? My understanding is that an IUOC controls the data that feeds many FWAUs that are a part of it, or something to this effect. I am still new to this model so I might be wrong.
David asking BTW :). --David Mathis 10:52, 6 July 2011 (CDT)
Hehe, I see that now. :)
I am still a little hazy on all of the distinctions between a FWAU and an IUOC, other than that a FWAU is a subset of an IUOC that is specifically tasked for interacting in a PMR. But I thought that FWAU also has control over the PMR data feed as well (you can focus your Intent on things). In a sense yes it is probably more accurate to say that you are a FWAU which is part of an IUOC. I will add that in.
But when you go into other reality frames (NPMR or whatever), "you" aren't strictly your FWAU anymore either right? When I'm dreaming I certainly don't feel like my FWAU (even when lucid). That's why I like to just think of myself as an IUOC, as the distinctions aren't clear to me. What do you think? --Michael Saganski 11:11, 6 July 2011 (CDT)
Perhaps Ted can clear this up? I was under the impression that the NPMR is just the NP part of the same FWAU. But again, I am still studying the model. --David Mathis 11:17, 6 July 2011 (CDT)
That could be the case, I've wondered that before but never investigated fully because I didn't think it was that important for my growth at the time. It's certainly more important here in the Wiki. I'll ask Ted. --Michael Saganski 11:37, 6 July 2011 (CDT)
We really need more explanation than this before resolving the question asked. We are really defining IUOC, not these other terms here.
Our IUOC is our true self, a digital individuated consciousness, as it resides on the RWW, also called Indra's Net historically. Historically with reference to Indra's Net, an IUOC was referred to as a jewel of consciousness with each jewel reflecting all of the others within its facets. It is a digitally based mind. It is a subset of the whole that is The One Consciousness of AUM and in their Union function as The One Consciousness. This is the primary meta reality on top of the Consciousness System as a cellular automaton with deterministic functioning. This meta reality provides the free will outside of the deterministic base of the CS that enables the consciousness of AUM. This functionality is not accessible to us. Our IUOC is also our base self.
The following should probably go elsewhere. A subset of our IUOC, referred to as an FWAU, is designated to interact with a Virtual Reality. Each VR within which we participate has its own designated FWAU. The FWAUs may be actually the same or the PMR FWAU may be a subset of the NPMR FWAU as not all of our functionality will be necessarily included in a given PMR incarnation. We may reduce our functionality for learning purposes. Our NPMR FWAU is expected to include all of our available functionality. An FWAU is constrained in correspondence with the rule set of the VR in which it functions.
I think this is a good start that Tom can correct if he feels it necessary. If necessary I can find references on the Internet to the Vedanta that describe Indra's Net. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indra%27s_net There will be references to be found in MBT for IUOC. When we get to describing FWAU, the references will have to come from the BB as I don't think Tom used this term. There is a thread with diagrams even. --Ted Vollers 14:32, 6 July 2011 (CDT)
Thanks Ted. I took out the reference to any physical/virtual reality on this page to be able to omit the mention of a FWAU (at least for now). I imagine that once this page is fleshed out more, and the page for FWAU, higher-self, oversoul, etc. are added the picture will be made clearer. I remember one of the posts on the BB had a Venn diagram that could be used on this Wiki to make the concepts clearer.--Michael Saganski 14:54, 6 July 2011 (CDT)
I added the historical reference I provided earlier. Tom wishes this to be a general metaphysical reference and tying Tom's work into the historical record is a desirable thing to do. --Ted Vollers 03:39, 7 July 2011 (CDT)
