[Excerpt from TT: 1999-02-25]
[ha] Why would it become desirable to “spin-off” aspects of self, i.e., I’m in process of re-integrating spin-offs, why would it be beneficial to spin off more?
[Michael_Entity] It would depend on your definitions of “Spin-offs”.
Assuming [your definition is] the same, it will always be the case in any given lifetime that aspects of your Personality “spin-off” into realities of their own. This is simply because Essence wants to not only experience EVERYTHING it intended (your TRUNK REALITY), but also all of the creative input from Personality. When you speak of integrating these Parallels [“spin-offs”], this may easily mean that other aspects of Personality [are moving] on, [being replaced].
Let us clarify something:
Each Personality is composed of what we refer to as SUB-PERSONALITIES, aspects of “you” that make up who you are in various situations.
Parallel Selves are aspects of ESSENCE, virtual “sub-personalities” of the Essence.
We realize this can be mind-boggling, but we assure you, you are not required to grasp this. That is what Essence does. You, as Personality, have only the life to contend with, not the creation of the Universal Schemes.
Many of you will be bringing in aspects/parallels that have been off in their “own” realities for a while, and now are merging with “this one”, but we will discuss that at a later date.
[ha] So when you mentioned at the beginning that we may be spinning off aspects of self, did this mean sub-personalities of self, or essence’s sub-personalities? Also, if it is sub-personalities of self, where do those spin-offs go and what do they do?
[Michael_Entity] We were referring to Essence “sub-personalities”.
Sub-personalities of Self stay with you, present, and are called to the “surface” for your various situations. Multiple Personalities and Schizophrenia are the results of breakdown and non-communication between these sub-personalities, by the way.
When you ask, “where do they go?” the same similar event occurs on an Essence level: YOU and ESSENCE exist within the SAME SPACE [like the sub-personalities within Personality]. ALL the parallels exist within the same space, but “you” are at a different “frequency” for Essence [than another “you”].
An easy way to visualize this:
Imagine Parallels as being a conglomeration of colours on a single surface. THIS is how Essence “sees” it all at once, but when this conglomeration of colour is [seen] through, for example, a BLUE lens, different colours are highlighted and others diminished. The SAME palette is there, but the FOCUS creates a different “dimension”. Other “lenses” would create similar results. “YOU” are a specific focus within the conglomeration of all the Parallels.
[fg] M said, “Parallel Selves are aspects of ESSENCE; virtual sub-personalities of the Essence.” What do you mean by virtual?
[Michael_Entity] That was a convenience of speech. We choose our words carefully in many ways and this, we felt, carried the best impact as these “selves” are not easily verifiable. But it is only from the perspective of one self that these [other selves] would appear “virtual”.
