Are We Living Inside a Giant Brain?
Living Inside a Mega Brain
By Jay Alfred
Metaphysicists identify the records imprinted on the zero point field as the "Akashic records". This forms the "memory" of the universal brain-mind or computer.
According to metaphysicist, Charles Leadbeater, if the observer is not focusing on them, the records simply form the background to whatever is going on. Under such conditions they merely reflect the mental activity of a greater consciousness on a far higher plane which is accessible to us. We are in a sense living in this much larger brain. This suggests that all human beings (and other life-forms) can and do use the shared (information processing) services of a "universal brain".
Observing the dynamic and visual Akashic records would be like watching the larger brain's movie from a distance.
As you move closer and focus on what is going on in a particular scene, you are immediately in the scene, surrounded by all the characters.
The characters of course cannot see you. Neither can you change anything in the scene. In this way, a person can time travel as an observer, without violating causality. What you see is sometimes in the past and sometimes in the future. The rate at which "the story unfolds" can be altered. Genuine psychics and most people during near-death experiences have access to these records.
Leadbeater warns that the Akashic records must not be confused with mere man-made thought-forms, which exist in abundance in the higher energy planes or spheres. It is possible that if the right brain is not shielded effectively from the usually dominant left brain (the "theory maker") many errors will arise when reading the records.
The Universe is a Computer
According to Science reporter J R 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, holds "1"s and "0"s in the states of its component particles.
Changes in those states could be called "computation", just as your desktop machine computes by changing the information in its memory. The only possible outcomes of measuring an electron’s spin are "up" and "down".
You can choose any axis to measure the spin but once that axis is chosen only two results are possible. These outcomes could just as well be labeled as "1" and "0" – as they are in digital computers. According to Seth Lloyd in a paper called "Computational Capacity of the Universe" (pdf), all physical systems register and process information. The laws of physics determine the amount of information that a physical system can register and the number of elementary logic operations that a system can perform. The universe can therefore 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 to be 10^120 operations on 10^90 bits.
Filaments and Nerves
It is interesting to note that the higher energy universes (as described by plasma metaphysics), composed of filaments punctuated with galaxies, bear an uncanny resemblance to our brains, composed 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 sub-cortex in our biomolecular brain) inside which our own subtle brain-bodies live and think. The filamentary structures carry current — just as nerves (to some extent) do. It would not be difficult to incorporate logic gates and arithmetic units into these structures.
The computational power required to generate a tiny living ant, which responds to multiple inputs from the environment and with its unique structure and behavior, would be challenging even to our current supercomputers. Considering that there are maybe trillions of life-forms on this planet alone, only the computational power of a series of higher energy universes (equivalent to the many layers of a universal brain) would suffice. This is the source of "universal intelligence and creativity".
