Living inside a mega brain
Metaphysicians identify the records printed in the zero point field as the “Akashic records.” This forms the “memory” of the brain-mind or universal computer. According to the metaphysician Charles Leadbeater, if the observer does not focus on them, the records simply form the background for what is happening. In such conditions, they simply reflect the mental activity of a greater consciousness on a much higher plane that is accessible to us. In a sense, we live in this much larger brain. This suggests that all human beings (and other forms of life) can and do use the shared services (information processing) of a “universal brain”.
Observing the dynamic and visual Akashic records would be like watching the movie of the largest brain from a distance. As you get closer and focus on what is happening in a particular scene, you are immediately on the scene, surrounded by all the characters. The characters, of course, cannot see you. You can’t change anything in the scene either. In this way, a person can travel through time as an observer, without violating causality. What you see is sometimes in the past and sometimes in the future. The speed at which “the story unfolds” can be changed. Genuine psychics and most people during near-death experiences have access to these records.
Leadbeater cautions that the Akashic records should not be confused with mere man-made thought forms, which exist in abundance on the higher energy planes or spheres. It is possible that if the right hemisphere is not effectively protected from the generally dominant left hemisphere (the “originator of the theory”), many errors will occur when reading the records.
“The Akashic records or ‘The Book of Life’ can be equated to the super computer system of the universe.” – Kevin Todeschi, scholar Edgar Cayce
The Universe is a Computer
According to Science reporter JR Minkel, in his article “If the Universe Were a Computer”, information theory says that every physical system, from a glass of water to a microchip, contains “1” s and “0” in the states of the particles that compose it. Changes in these states could be called “calculation”, in the same way that your desktop machine calculates by changing the information in its memory. The only possible results of measuring the spin of an electron are “up” and “down.” You can choose any axis to measure the turn, but once that axis is chosen, only two results are possible. These results could also be labeled “1” and “0”, as in digital computers. According to Seth Lloyd in an article called “Computational Capacity of the Universe”, all physical systems record and process information. The laws of physics determine the amount of information that a physical system can record and the number of elementary logical operations that a system can perform. Therefore, the universe can be considered a physical system or a gigantic computer. As a computer, the number of elementary operations the universe has performed to date has been calculated as 10 ^ 120 operations in 10 ^ 90 bits.
Filaments and nerves
It is interesting to note that the higher energy universes (as described by plasma metaphysics), made up of galaxy-dotted filaments, bear an uncanny resemblance to our brains, made up of nerve fibers punctuated with neural cell bodies.
These successive universes can operate as the many layers of a gigantic electronic brain (analogous to the cortex and subcortex of our biomolecular brain) within which our own subtle cerebral bodies live and think. Filamentous structures carry current, as do nerves (up to a point). It would not be difficult to incorporate logic gates and arithmetic units into these structures.
The computational power required to generate a small living ant, which responds to multiple inputs from the environment and with its unique structure and behavior, would be challenging even for our current supercomputers. Considering that there are perhaps trillions of life forms on this planet alone, just the computational power of a number of higher energy universes (equivalent to the many layers of a universal brain) would suffice. This is the source of “universal intelligence and creativity.”
