ELIAS: (1) “Bon jour! Aspect, Seer, Intent. (Pause) A.S.I. The eyes being the symbol of the Seers. This being a construct equation of Seer doorways. This fits into a larger equation, to which now you have a puzzle piece that you may fit this to another. This is part of your city construction, which will also go alongside of Michael’s [Mary’s] tile. So, you have begun! Also incorporated within this is a connection with Sophia [Guin], in seeing or viewing the same essence Seer as Michael [Mary] has incorporated. Your hallway is also a part of your construction. Therefore, your city has begun!

You will notice within the equation two doorways; one representing what you term future, one representing what you term past, both being linked with your archeological focus as your clues within your book (2); one future focus, one past; both aspects of the same, each part of the twins. This is your equation.” [session 46, October 18, 1995]

Elias “gems”

ELIAS: “I shall begin by offering an equation. Then you may continue with your questions. You may express thanks to your new friend for delivery of this dream equation, and you may deliver the equation to Stephen [Norm] for his pondering. The equation is as stated: ‘Relay the force pattern as a source of tension.’

(Vic’s note: pause, as I write the equation down, frantically trying to remember who to thank for it)

VICKI: This was from Carole’s dream?

(Vic’s note: I had to go through my email file to finally discover that it was Carole who sent this to me on December 9, 1996. I didn’t understand it at the time, and therefore didn’t pay much attention to it. Really tuned in, eh?)

ELIAS: This has been relayed to you by one of your new friends as a remnance of a dream. It is a message. The key words to be focusing upon within this equation are relay, force pattern, and tension, for their meaning is not as it appears. Now we shall allow the scientist to engage his scientific ciphering! (Smiling)

VICKI: Okay. I shall relay the message.

ELIAS: Very good.” [session 142, December 27, 1996]

ELIAS: “We continue.

CAROLE: Elias. Relay the force pattern as a source of tension.

ELIAS: No! You relay the force pattern as a source of tension! (And we all crack up. Elias is grinning widely)

CAROLE: Does that sentence have something to do with the electric light show I saw blinking on and off when I got that sentence? Is that the energy that we have to be able to access to create?

ELIAS: Accessing energy! Very good beginning!

CAROLE: And then we need to engage action with the energy?

ELIAS: This is a sentence presented to you objectively, in description of subjective activity. Your question is, ‘How do I create my reality?’ Your answer is this.

CAROLE: Create the force pattern as a source of tension.

ELIAS: You must be engaging your periphery and allowing yourself a wider explanation and definition of these words, for these words indicate the action which you engage within Regional Area 2 in creating your reality, and also within your dream mission behind the imagery. It is the same.

CAROLE: How would I consciously move my consciousness to the place in the dream imagery where that information becomes clearer to me?

ELIAS: You do not move your consciousness to a place. You allow yourself to understand your imagery which you have created for your symbolism; recognizing that you create symbols to explain action to yourself, and also recognizing, as I have stated previously, that each symbol, every symbol, is a symbol, and also holds its own integrity and therefore is a reality.” [session 148, January 14, 1997]

ELIAS: “Our most difficult subject of simultaneous time! Time is a very tricky business! (Laughter) It is a very interesting creation, for it creates many different dimensions. It is a perception, but it also is a priori.

NORM: Supposedly, the fundamental unit of All-That-Is, including and meaning everything, is the consciousness unit. I’m assuming that consciousness unit has no other parallel, that it is truly the one and only fundamental unit of All-That-Is? (3)

ELIAS: I prefer to express this concept as links of consciousness for units presupposes an enclosed system, and as there are no closed systems within consciousness, I have expressed to these individuals that it is more efficiently stated within links of consciousness; but yes, you are correct in your idea; this being the symphony.

NORM: The symphony? (Elias smiles at Norm) For example, the links of consciousness can be gestalts, or they can link together of course in any set. Some sets, for example, are electrons and atoms, neutrons, protons, electrons forming atoms, which are really tens of millions of these links? Is that a true statement?

ELIAS: Correct.

NORM: And they possess the ability to go in many directions at once as a unit?

ELIAS: They are everywhere simultaneously. They are not bound by dimension or space arrangement or perception or time dimensions.

NORM: Okay. You said that time is a thing, and also it is ... I should have perhaps stated that links or CU’s have the ability and the propensity of anything. They can be anything.

ELIAS: Correct.

NORM: Is time then, the thing ‘time,’ is it really a link or a CU or a gestalt of those?

ELIAS: As I opened this evening’s session, I expressed to you all that you think in terms of things. You think in terms of atoms, molecules, electrons, photons. You think in terms of tangibles. Not all reality is tangible. As I express to you that time is a thing within itself, I do not mean this word thing as a tangible, physical element, although it is a thing in itself. It is a force. Now, Stephen [Norm], concentrate upon your equation; for time is a force pattern.

(Vic’s note: the equation is, ‘Relay the force pattern as a source of tension’)

NORM: And it can provide a tension, and is the source of tension.

ELIAS: Just as you may look to your physical existence and you may recognize your force of gravity, you recognize this as a thing, but it is not composed of things. It is a force. (Intently) Time is a force pattern. It is a thing in itself holding the ability to be creative, and it may create variations on a theme of itself; but it is not composed of units.

NORM: Or links.

ELIAS: Everything, every thing, underline three times, is composed of links of consciousness, for there is no existence that is not consciousness!

(Vic’s note: my computer won’t underline three times!)

NORM: Thank you.

ELIAS: ... (To Norm) Continue to investigate your equation! Think clearly of relay this force pattern. I have instructed you that this word of relay is instrumental.

NORM: Thank you.

ELIAS: You are welcome.” [session 152, February 09, 1997]

ELIAS: “We shall ... (To Vic) You are wishing inquiry?

VICKI: Just briefly, this word relay, does it have anything to do with interpretation?

ELIAS: Partially. Continue with your investigation of your equation! You may be interpreting closely to your dream mission also. We shall discontinue this evening. I shall be anticipating our next meeting. Affectionately, au revoir!” [session 153, February 16, 1997]

CAROLE: “Oh, in one of the transcripts you were curious why soap operas were called soap operas. This is going back and it’s kind of a silly thing, but I thought, ‘Well, next time I speak with Elias, I’ll tell him why.’ It’s because they used to sell soap on those shows! That’s why they were called soap operas! (Elias chuckles) ’Cause it was on during the day and women used to stay home and wash the clothes!

In that sentence, ‘Relay the force pattern as a source of tension,’ one of the things that I started to come up with was that some of this is energy going from one focus to another focus, and that it will show itself manifesting either emotionally or materially. Or, if it’s non-physically then it’s not materially, but some aspect of that reality, just kind of showing that it’s all connected and it’s all the same and yet different. Is this accurate?

(Vic’s note: ‘relay the force pattern as a source of tension’ was presented by Elias as an equation. Reference session 142 dated December 27, 1996)

ELIAS: Partially.

CAROLE: Partially, okay. It’s bigger than that too, huh?

ELIAS: Quite! This equation is concerning the relationship of essence to focus. But I am acknowledging of you that you are remembering of these equations I have offered, and continue to be lending your attention to these aspects of our information.

CAROLE: Thank you.

ELIAS: I am aware that many individuals receive these equations and are allowing themselves forgetfulness! I have offered these, which hold information in them if you are allowing yourselves to be connecting to these equations.

CAROLE: Well, I found it interesting that this equation was offered by you, and I had seen it in the inner self about six months before you offered it, written out in block letters, and had mentioned that to Lawrence [Vicki]. I also saw at that time wires kind of blinking on and off, and I have since come to realize that perhaps those blinking-off wires, which were sort of like a honeycomb blinking on and off, was what would be the divisions in the different states of consciousness or realities. I know there’s no such thing as planes, but somehow – and this is the thing I get stuck on all the time trying to figure out – what is it that actually makes the divisions? I know that everything is unified, unity, but something makes divisions. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to talk about different things. So there is something, and it seems like with that statement and those blinking on and off wires, I was viewing some imagery that I presented to myself.

ELIAS: Of strands of consciousness and their interconnectedness, but each strand holds its own integrity.

CAROLE: Okay. So that’s how we can view things in segments, because each strand holds its own integrity and has consciousness and awareness of itself?

ELIAS: Correct.

CAROLE: Am I subject to creating my reality due to mass belief systems if I’m not consciously aware of that belief system, and so haven’t recognized a need to develop something that I prefer to that belief system?

ELIAS: You are influenced, yes. Mass belief systems are influencing of all individuals. This is not to say that you may hold an objective awareness of the affectingness of these mass belief systems, but you are influenced by mass belief systems. It is quite amusing to be listening to individuals expressing that they are not affected by mass belief systems or that they do not hold to mass belief systems! They ARE affected. They merely do not allow themselves an objective awareness of the affectingness.” [session 272, April 05, 1998]

PAUL: “Another question, Elias. In session 148, Carole presented what you called an equation. She used the words, ‘relay the force pattern as a source of tension.’ You described that as an equation, in which the answer helps to answer her question in the dream mission: how do I create my reality? I wondered if you would comment a little bit more about how you use the concept of equation in this context. It’s certainly not a scientific, mathematical, numeric equation. It has a different meaning.

ELIAS: You are correct in this. The meaning of this terminology of equation is to be placing together the elements of self to be creating the sum or the whole.

Within your physical reality, as you are aware, you have created these separations. Therefore, you also create a process in moving into a lack of separation or less of a separation, and this creates the elements of an equation. For within an equation, you incorporate different elements that you place together to be creating of a product or a sum, so to speak; an outcome, in a manner of speaking.

What you are creating in this equation, so to speak, is an incorporation of all of the elements or aspects of self to be creating the outcome, figuratively speaking, of the lessening of separation within physical terms, and the opening to freedom of your continued exploration.

Therefore, as you turn your attention to self and are noticing and examining and exploring the different elements of yourself – the subjective and objective awarenesses – and you are merging these and creating a balance in expression of these in objective terms – for they are balanced, but you do not hold an objective balance of these two elements of your awarenesses – you are creating the action of the equation.

PAUL: So then the equation, so to speak, incorporates both subjective and objective self?


PAUL: Now, in this example of ‘relay the force pattern as a source of tension,’ only reacting objectively to it ’cause that’s the state I’m in presently, there seems to be three elements there: the force pattern, the source of tension, and the action of relaying.

Now, is that sort of thought process helpful in interpreting the equation, or is it a starting point to move more into the feeling tone and connecting with subjective self?

ELIAS: A beginning. The force pattern is the subjective. (Pause)

PAUL: And the source of tension? (Pause)

ELIAS: This is the action of the translation. (Pause)

PAUL: And then relaying, is that also an action?

ELIAS: This is an action, that you shall be relaying the knowing and the information to the objective awareness.” [session 493, October 26, 1999]

PAUL: “Moving on to some other questions today, when we last left our hero, we were talking about the dream mission, so to speak, and we had talked a little bit about what you had called ‘the efficient language of translation of subjective into objective imagery.’ (4)

We discussed an equation, so to speak – relay the force pattern as a source of tension – and I just wanted to review my understanding of our interaction with that, and ask some further questions about that.

Listening to the tape of that session, it’s my understanding that the ‘force pattern’ aspect of that equation deals with the subjective source energy. Is that correct? (Pause)

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, yes.

PAUL: Okay, thank you. The ‘source of tension’ aspect of that equation, I understand as a translation process. Is that correct?

ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.

PAUL: Thank you. And the ‘relaying,’ then, is the knowing and perception in objective terms of the translation process?

ELIAS: The relaying is the action.

PAUL: Okay, thank you. It is the action of knowing, in objective terms?

ELIAS: It is the action of the accomplishment of the translation into objective knowing.

PAUL: Great. Thank you.

So, moving on, in one of the early session books by Seth and Jane Roberts, in session 23, Seth introduces some terms that I think are kind of similar to this equation, and I wanted to bounce that off of you and get your feedback on that.

Seth used the words ‘source energy,’ and he talked about actions of receiving this source energy as received by our inner senses, and is transformed by mental genes into camouflage patterns, and in a sense, that maps onto this equation very nicely. (5)

So I guess one question I have is, what is the role of the inner senses in this language of translation? (Pause)

ELIAS: Your inner senses may be enhancing to your outer senses, and offer you more input in the direction of your objective perception. They offer you more of an objective assimilation of information, in a similar manner to your outer senses.

Your inner senses need be creating no translation in the direction of subjective recognition and awareness.

But at times, you may be engaging a translation of information that you incorporate through inner senses to allow you an understanding in objective terms, for you may be assimilating experiences that you do not hold within your creation of experiences.

Therefore, in a manner of speaking objectively, they are foreign to you, and in this type of expression, there is a translation which is required, that you may be understanding in objective terms what you are assimilating and what you are incorporating in experiences, for just as with your outer senses, they assimilate information through direct experience.

Your inner senses also incorporate information through direct experience in a different function, but it is a direct experience which is being accomplished and offering you information. But in objective terms, the information which is being incorporated through inner senses is unfamiliar to you. Therefore, it may be at times requiring of a translation process.

What you have offered in this other equation basically is a very similar equation to what we have been discussing within our previous session.

PAUL: Great. So I have some further questions then, because it offers a new angle, so to speak, to look at this equation, at least in objective terms.

I’m struck by this statement of ‘transformed by mental genes,’ which is an early term that Seth used, and the closest thing I can come to understanding mental genes ... Seth does go on to later talk about consciousness units, which you have termed links of consciousness, and he’s also discussed a concept called EE units or electromagnetic energy units, and I’m wondering ... the first question is, are these concepts of links of consciousness and electromagnetic energy units, or whatever you would term it, the same as mental genes?

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, yes, although I shall also express to you no, for within the context of what is being expressed and explained, no. This is not the information that is being offered.

Therefore, be not confused in the thought process that this teacher is expressing the same concept in different terminology, for it has not been offered in that manner.

As to links of consciousness or what you term to be consciousness units, this constitutes EVERY expression of consciousness.

Therefore, in a manner of speaking, I may express to you in response, affirmative; that yes, you may incorporate links of consciousness into this explanation. But as I say to you, within the context of the information offered, this is not what is being referred to.

In this, it may be expressed in other terms in the statements of energy and energy signatures.

Each of you, in your uniqueness and within your individuality, as I have expressed previously, are so very highly individual and unique that you each possess your own energy signature, in a manner of speaking, just as we have discussed within previous sessions in comparison to your physical fingerprints.

Your individual expression of tone and vibrational quality and personality are so very highly unique and individualized to you yourself that it may be compared to physical fingerprints not being duplicated within the physical expression of any other individual throughout your history within your physical dimension.

There are no two identically the same, and in this, you each hold a particular energy signature which is unique to yourself.

Now; in this energy signature, you also incorporate certain qualities that appear to be in alignment, in a manner of speaking, with other individuals, although you express, as I have stated, within yourselves uniquely.

In this, you may be incorporating the similarities of orientations also, which place you in a type of general expression of a group, so to speak. But within the group, you continue to be highly individualized within your expressions.

Now; as you look to your physical identification of gene pools, gene pools are not unique to one individual, although they ARE unique to each individual.

Your genetic makeup, so to speak, is individualized to yourself, but also simultaneously, it incorporates hereditary factors and the similarities to other individuals within your physical dimension, which creates a commonality in one respect between yourself and other individuals, but retains your individuality and your uniqueness within the group.

In a similar manner, through the incorporation of orientation, you hold similarities to each other in each of the designations of the different orientations, but you also each hold your individual energy signature.

Therefore, these may be likened, in a manner of speaking, to the manifestation of your physical genetics, and this may be translated in terminology that may be more easily assimilated by individuals objectively as a concept that is expressed as ‘mental genes.’

It is a different manner of expressing the same concept as commonalties and uniqueness in your energy signature and your orientation, within physical terms.

These are influencing factors in your translations. How you translate different elements of subjective movement or imagery into objective movement and imagery – how you create the bridge in objective terms between the two that you may view objectively – is quite influenced by your energy signature individually and also by your orientation, for this is a construct of your perception.

PAUL: That’s incredible! I have like a hundred questions, and I’m just trying to formulate the most efficient next one!

ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha!

PAUL: (Laughing) Very interesting! Just give me a second here; we’ve covered a lot of ground.

I guess I just want to make the observation that I didn’t realize ... connecting all this orientation information that you’ve offered this year within this concept of an efficient language of translation. It’s obvious now that you’ve put it in those terms to me; the role of energy signatures too. Maybe that’s where I’ll go.

I have a sense, as a physical being in linear time, of my body, of my mind and body as – in terms of tone, in terms of energy and vibration – thick, slowed down in terms of light energy and faster than light energy, and so I have an objective sense of this energy signature, so to speak, as it manifests objectively.

However, subjectively, in the context of this term of mental genes, commonalties and uniquenesses in the context of how we translate, there is a subjective manifestation of the energy signature also, and that is on the subjective side of this equation that we’re talking about, and maybe that’s good enough to know at this point!

ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha! You are correct!

As I have expressed to you previously, your objective and subjective awarenesses move in harmony with each other and are not independent of each other, in a manner of speaking. Therefore, what is being created subjectively is also being created objectively.

What you are attempting to be moving into is the translation, is the objective awareness of BOTH creations of awareness. You wish to be objectively aware of subjective movement.

And in this, we concentrate our subject matter upon the objective movement and objective noticings and recognitions and translations, for you need no translation of the subjective – the subjective needs no translation of the objective – and you have no motivation to be translating any objective imagery into subjective awareness.

But as you HAVE created veils and separations objectively throughout your history in manifestation within this dimension, you DO hold a curiosity and a motivation to be creating a translation of that which you view presently – or perceive to be illusive – as the subjective imagery and movement, that element of yourself that continues to be suspect, and you wish or desire to be creating a translation, that you may hold an objective awareness of the movement of the subjective imagery and awareness; not that the subjective movement or imagery or awareness is being created in any different manner than the objective in terms of direction, for it is not.

The direction is the same of both the objective and the subjective, but the imagery presents itself differently, and therefore there is a fascination in the area of investigating that which is unfamiliar to you objectively. Therefore, we DO concentrate our discussions in the direction of the objective terms of translation.

PAUL: Great. That’s very clear.

So for now, in my present understanding, I think if I proceed in terms of this equation and its three aspects in a general sense of subjective source energy, translation, and objective imagery – the accomplishment of objective imagery – that will be helpful, to continue in that framework, for me. Is that correct?

ELIAS: Yes, you are correct. You may identify force pattern or source energy as quite the same.

PAUL: Great.

ELIAS: They are merely different terms for the same concept.

PAUL: So, just one further question in this general area.

Seth does mention this concept of electromagnetic energy units, which he says, in his terms, are made up of consciousness units. I’m clear that in your terms, links of consciousness make up these other units of energy that are involved in translating into objective physical imagery from a slightly faster, higher vibrational speed than is physical. You’ve never really commented on this concept, and I’m wondering if you would just comment on that notion of electromagnetic energy units in this translation process. (6)

ELIAS: This is an objective translation that may be more easily assimilated by individuals.

In another manner of speaking, it is a complication of the concept of consciousness, for it is the offering of what you objectively may term to be an extra piece or an extra element.

It has been offered purposefully, for as you are aware, within physical focus you incline objectively quite easily in the direction of complication and of creating processes, within your thought patterns and within all of your objective imagery that you create.

You move in the direction of not allowing yourselves to be accepting of the simplification of concepts or of movement or of consciousness, and in your exploration of consciousness, within physical terms, you choose to be creating complications for many of the aspects of consciousness within your physical dimension.

(Firmly) This is not bad. I am not expressing this in any terms of negativity. It is merely an action that you create, and that you have created quite purposefully.

It offers you the ability to be examining every area of physical manifestation. It offers you a tremendous labyrinth of exploration within physical dimensions, and allows you to be examining every aspect of what you may be creating within this physical dimension.

Therefore, it is not without purpose that you have created this direction of complication, but you have also incorporated this complicating element into your language quite efficiently.

Therefore, as you receive information, it is easier for you to be assimilating information offered if it is complicated. It is more difficult for you to be assimilating information if it is offered to you too simply.

Therefore, it has been quite purposefully complicated and offered to you in information, that you may easily assimilate the concept of movement of energy, and as I have stated, an extra piece has been inserted for your benefit, that you may be understanding the information efficiently.

In this, I express to you, links of consciousness create ALL manifestations.

You may complicate this, and you may express different categorizations for these links of consciousness. You may group links of consciousness in different manners, and in this, you may label and identify and classify them, and this may be efficient for your objective understanding, and this is acceptable if this offers you an ease within your objective understanding in movement.

But I may express to you, in actuality, links of consciousness group together in different configurations and create all actions and all movements and all manifestations of consciousness, and it need not be complicated further.

But as I have stated, I am quite understanding that this is the development of your language and how you move within your thought processes, and as I express to you the statement that links of consciousness create all of your reality in different configurations within physical dimensions and within nonphysical areas of consciousness, this is a simplification, and appears to you to be missing a piece. Therefore, you may insert your piece! (Chuckling)

PAUL: Thank you. That was really clear. I’m scaring myself these days that I’m actually following you, and I mean that with all due respect! (They both laugh)

So just to summarize my understanding of your answer, it’s clear to me, in what you’ve offered thus far in terms of consciousness units, that there’s a large, perhaps infinite spectrum of configurations, groupings, and so forth, and within our objective terms, there’s a certain observable way of breaking those down into pieces, and that certainly aligns with our scientific belief systems and so forth.

So, that’s interesting. My personal interest in this area is not classifying all of these configurations and publishing books about them at all, but to simply see what your answer and your feedback is in that area, and for me, it’s very clear. Thank you.

ELIAS: You are very welcome.

PAUL: Another question then, in this area of the equation and the three aspects, the general orienting aspects here, types of force patterns or source energy that you’ve discussed to date ... I just want to summarize my understanding and see if there’s any that are missing, or other aspects that I’m not clear on.

So, my understanding is that in terms of source energy, certainly our essence and all of our aspect selves, which includes focuses of essence and all the probables, alternates, splinters, counterparts, et cetera, is one. You’ve talked about Source Events found in what you term Regional Area 2. That certainly seems to be another area of source energy that impacts what you term our Regional Area 1. And then what some call psychic blueprints or world views, you term energy deposits, aspects of focuses in transition found in Regional Area 3. So, would you comment on the accuracy of that assessment? Are there other types of source energy that I’m not aware of?

ELIAS: (Deliberately) Let me express to you that the force pattern – or the source energy – may be classified quite simply as ALL of the energy and movement, imagery and creation, collective and individual, which may be designated within Regional Area 2, or any regional area of consciousness that may be translatable into objective awareness within Regional Area 1.

PAUL: So that would include this energy exchange with Regional Area 4.

ELIAS: Correct.

PAUL: Interesting.

ELIAS: For in this phenomenon also, [there] is a translation which is occurring, and in this, it may also in part serve as an example, for there is a force pattern which is projected in what you may term to be a filtration through subjective energy, in a mergence with subjective energy, and is translated in energy through, and relayed into objective expression.

PAUL: That’s clear from where I’m at, at the moment. This is fascinating stuff, Elias! I just have to say that. Sometimes I can’t believe I’m having this conversation with myself!” (Elias chuckles) (7) [session 506, November 24, 1999]

End Notes:

(1) Vic’s note: In October of 1995, Ron had a dream in which he received A.S.I. as an equation. The following evening, Elias began the session with this equation.

(2) Paul’s note: a reference a “fictional” book called The Education of Oversoul Seven (1973), written by Jane Roberts that uses many of the concepts found in the information offered by Seth and Elias (for example simultaneous time, probabilities, the cycle of manifestation, essence families, altered states, etc.).

(3) Paul’s note: Norm is a retired physicist who attended the Castaic, California sessions from November 1996 through February 1998 and continues his conversations with Elias is private phone sessions. Norm is also a Seth reader and uses the terms ‘unit of consciousness’ and ‘All-That-Is’ found in the Seth Material.

‘All-That-Is’ refers to Seth/Jane Roberts’ term for expressing the concept of God as an action of eternal becoming, inseparable from and contained within Everything, incomprehensible in Its Totality.

This information was first introduced in The Seth Material, Chapter 18, The God Concept – The Creation – The Three Christs, (1970), sessions #426-428, (no date given.)

Elias initially used the term “Creating Universal One And Whole” to describe the same Reality. This was subsequently replaced by “all of consciousness.”

Digests: find out more about the Creating Universal One And Whole.

The concept of consciousness units (CUs) was introduced by Seth/Jane Roberts in The “Unknown” Reality, (1977), Vol. 1, session 682, February 13, 1974. According to Seth, these “units” form the underpinnings of all consciousness and are the foundation for ALL physical and non-physical domains.

According to classical Newtonian physics, the universe is perceived as a closed, finite, machine that can be broken down into parts like molecules and atoms. Quantum mechanics, a 20th century branch of physics, has essentially thrown out this model discovering that there is a “hidden” or nonlocal domain from which all matter and energy spring. Thus our physical universe is no longer understood to be a closed system, but intersecting and exchanging energy with countless probable/alternate dimensions.

Elias modified his use of the term from “units” to “links” to reflect the open system nature of our physical dimension.

Digests: follow this link (pun intended :-) for more information on links of consciousness.

(4) Paul’s note: in my previous session, #493, October 26, 1999, Elias and I discussed this efficient “language for translation” in the context of the dream mission, out-of-body states, and engaging the remembrance of essence.

The following exchange between Norm, a retired physicist, and Elias from an earlier session led me to ask about a “language for translation,” as this relates to HOW we create our reality, through the action of translating “source energy” into physical constructions:

NORM: “One of the questions is in regard to the relationship of the brain, and not using parts of the brain, and our thinking mechanism. And then, what happens when we have out-of-body experiences in the waking state, and then we have out-of-body experiences in the dreaming state? It seemed to me that, and I think I did have an out-of-body experience when I was fifteen or sixteen years old, that I was able to think as well in that out-of-body experience. I looked down on my body and there it was. I’m trying to figure out what the relationship is between my physical brain and my real ability to think. It felt like I had some kind of a spiritual essence or a spiritual form that came out of my body and moved with me in my bedroom, in Sioux City, Iowa in 1945 or 1946. So is it true that my thinking has really nothing to do with my brain?

ELIAS: (Chuckling) This engagement is quite amusing! Once again, we shall take your questions in order, of questions within one question)

RETA: That’s how he talks all the way! (Elias is still chuckling)

ELIAS: You engage the action of what you term to be out-of-body experiences within waking state, within sleeping state, consciously, unconsciously, in your terms, within altered states, in your terms. You may experience out-of-body action, so to speak, within what you term to be a daydream. Within missing time, as you experience, you are experiencing an out-of-body. You experience this action much of your time. You are not aware objectively of this action, for you do not translate into your objective language the action that you are engaged in.

As to your thinking while you are engaged in this action of out-of-body; the action of physical thought is quite valuable if you may train yourself to be consciously, objectively consciously, aware within the action of out-of-body experience. Thought processes are a creation of physical focus. You think in terms of language, which is symbolic. Thoughts, within physical focus, are symbolic energy. They are symbols. They are a language. Therefore, it would be helpful to you if you allowed yourselves to train your objective consciousness, your thought processes, to mingle with your subjective activity and create an efficient language for translation of subjective activity into objective knowing. You do not remember your experiences out-of-body, for you have not created this language to be translating subjective activity. Therefore, you have no frame of reference within your objective, waking state. You then are left with ‘blank space.’

NORM: Not even feelings or intuition.

ELIAS: You are attempting to translate non-physical, subjective consciousness action into objective consciousness; this being the same as what you expressed earlier within the action of Regional Area 3, and wishing to know the mechanics of this area of consciousness. You are attempting to label experiences which do not fit within this area of consciousness. Therefore, they must be translated. All that you view is a translation. All that you think is a translation. Within other areas of consciousness, thought is not what you ‘think!’

RETA: So we have to learn, or find steps to take, to get more of that subjective material into our life.

ELIAS: Notice Michael’s dream mission! This shall be your key.” [session 135, November 24, 1996]

(5) Paul’s note: here’s the excerpt from The Early Sessions, Book 1 of the Seth Material by Jane Roberts and Robert Butts that I was referring to:

SETH: “The only reason the whole self is not much more conscious and accessible is your own stubborn refusal to admit it. I cannot emphasize this more strongly. The camouflage pattern world is formed by the mind, and I am using this now in its true term as a part of the inner world. Energy is received by the mind through the inner senses and transformed by use of mental enzymes into camouflage patterns.

There is no reason why mankind cannot be made aware of this transformation, if once he admits into existence the whole self which makes this possible.” [session 23, February 05, 1964, pg. 168]

The sentence above in italics maps nicely onto the equation we discussed previously – relay the force pattern as a source of tension.

I should also mention that I switched the words “enzymes” and “genes” from the above Seth excerpt in my question to Elias, as Seth discusses both “mental enzymes” and “mental genes” in the Early Sessions books. However, my “switch” didn’t seem to faze Elias at all, as he used the opportunity to deliver more information on genetics, orientations, and energy signatures, all in the context of this equation’s “language for translation.” I suspect that the action of Seth’s mental “genes” and “enzymes” both map nicely onto this equation.

For those interested, here’s the equation excerpt from session 148 that I was referring to:

ELIAS: “We continue.

CAROLE: Elias. Relay the force pattern as a source of tension.

ELIAS: No! You relay the force pattern as a source of tension! (And we all crack up. Elias is grinning widely)

CAROLE: Does that sentence have something to do with the electric light show I saw blinking on and off when I got that sentence? Is that the energy that we have to be able to access to create?

ELIAS: Accessing energy! Very good beginning)

CAROLE: And then we need to engage action with the energy?

ELIAS: This is a sentence presented to you objectively, in description of subjective activity. Your question is, ‘How do I create my reality?’ Your answer is this.

CAROLE: Create the force pattern as a source of tension.

ELIAS: You must be engaging your periphery and allowing yourself a wider explanation and definition of these words, for these words indicate the action which you engage within Regional Area 2 in creating your reality, and also within your dream mission behind the imagery. It is the same.

CAROLE: How would I consciously move my consciousness to the place in the dream imagery where that information becomes clearer to me?

ELIAS: You do not move your consciousness to a place. You allow yourself to understand your imagery which you have created for your symbolism; recognizing that you create symbols to explain action to yourself, and also recognizing, as I have stated previously, that each symbol, every symbol, is a symbol, and also holds its own integrity and therefore is a reality.” [session 148, January 14, 1997]

(6) Paul’s note: according to Seth, electromagnetic energy units (EEs) are faster-than-light units, found just “beneath” all physical matter. EEs are manipulated by what he terms “the inner ego,” which is analogous to Elias’ concept of “subjective awareness.”

EEs change constantly, pulsing, expanding and contracting. They have variable polarities and an innate propensity to form into vast arrays of “larger” groupings and intensities, ultimately transforming into physical spectrums of energy and matter. They are the basis for “normal” perception (five senses) and extrasensory perception (inner senses).

According to Seth, it is “the inner ego, that organizes, initiates, projects and controls the EE units of which we have been speaking, transforming energy into objects, into matter.” [session 509, November 24, 1969]

In later sessions, Seth refines the function of EEs within the context of another concept – “consciousness units” (CUs). He says that all EEs are made up of these “more” fundamental CUs. Elias uses the term “links of consciousness” (LCs) to represent the same concept.

Seth introduced this concept of “electromagnetic energy units” in The Seth Material (1970) by Jane Roberts, Appendix sessions, 504 September 29, 1969 – 509, November 24, 1969. There is more information on this concept found in additional Seth books.

(7) Paul’s note: just to clarify my intent in this statement; I have come to think of my private conversations with Elias as a mirror action occurring within “the mirror of Self.” This is my own metaphor for the perennial notion that there is no separation within consciousness.

In this metaphor Elias represents subjective areas of “my” wider consciousness objectively translated for my own benefit. The mirror imagery is further reinforced by the fact that Elias consistently “reflects” all inquiries back to me in terms of noticing, accepting, and trusting self.

Don’t get me wrong here, I don’t consider myself to be Elias or anyone else for that matter, but realize that our conversations occur WITHIN a living web of consciousness. In that multidimensional context, I am “talking to mySelf.”

Oftentimes these conversations are accompanied by a sense of wonder, discovery, and indescribable beauty! So I would use the following spelling in this sentence, “Sometimes I can’t believe I’m having this conversation with mySelf!”
