Universal Unpredictability Pt.5
What would the long term effects of universal unpredictability be on the human brain?  Not just the effect on the current incarnation but on the entire series of incarnations.  Would repeated instances of universal unpredictability leave a mark on future incarnations?  Suppose a strange occurrence creates a neuron path running through two parts of the brain never directly connected before.
Humans with almost supernatural abilities live among us.  All over the world and history, people have claimed a wide variety of talents.  We separate these talents into two categories, natural and supernatural.  Telekinesis, aura reading, and telepathy are some examples of supernatural abilities.  Photographic memory and being able to pick up an instrument and play it very well with no lessons are "natural" talents.  Why do we place these amazing abilities into two separate groups?  I believe this is because we all can relate to a photographic memory as we

Universal Unpredictability Pt.4
Was I born a Universe in life one?  What separates us from an asteroid or planet?  I believe what makes us independent self-contained Universes and planet Earth not for example is choice.  We may be built from the same base material but we transcend the rocks at our feet.  Everything around us, stars, planets even mighty black holes, everything moves according to gravity and the other three forces.  We do not.
Yes gravity affects us, keeps us on planet Earth, but in spite of the very gravity that keeps us here, we move about however we want.  We make choices, we choose to fight gravity and walk or climb up a mountain.  We ignore our buoyancy and swim with the fish.  Nothing else in the Universe, except at the quantum scale, can roll up hill and not just down, like life.  However we are not at the quantum scale compared to the Universe we see around us.  If we were part of the Universe around us and not separate, we like everything else

Universal Unpredictability Pt.3
Another interesting phenomenon that is reported all over the world is astral projection.  The art of leaving ones body behind and going out into the universe.  Skeptics won't hear anything on the topic, and why should they?  The only explanations put forth are of the divine or occult nature.
I propose that astral projection is just another side effect of universal unpredictability.  As an example, an interesting event took place in my life that may shed light on the topic.  My friend, whose garage we were in during another odd event, and I had a bit of a falling out some years after the incident in his garage.
It had been almost a year since the last time I saw him.  He called me up out of the blue and wanted to get together like old times.  I agreed quickly, I was excited to see him as well.  After meeting up we soon found ourselves in a familiar place, his garage.  We kicked the hacky sac around and caught up on what had been going on in e

Universal Unpredictability Pt.2
Many people believe that some, if not everyone has lived a completely separate past life before.  I've read articles about a boy who knew intimate details about a woman, who he claimed was his wife in a past life.  That he was the reincarnation of her dead husband.  He knew everything from what the house they lived in looked like.  As well as the names of all of her family members, among other facts.  Reading this articles and others like it I wondered what could explain this phenomenon.  If this story, and other similar reports were true, and these people experienced a separate second life, would that not derail my theory?
The answer is no.  Universal unpredictability, combined with that we ourselves are Universes, explains this as well.  At the end of, in the case of our example, the womans husband's life.  As with all of us,  what made him who he is dissipated, predictably to resurface back at his earliest memory.  However somet

Universal Unpredictability Pt.1
What will my legacy be? I sit here and ponder that and many other questions. I'm at a crossroads in my life. I sit here and think about how I got here, not only where I sit physically. But also to this point in my life.
Choices. Choices I made year after year, month after month. Some small, others big, all added up got me where I am today. I ponder not only what may have been, had I made different choices through out my life. But also had I made those different choices before?
Over the years may strange occurrences have befouled me. An incident in the seventh grade, me and my friends were sitting around the lunch table. Math was directly after lunch for us that year so we gathered around the table after eating to do our math homework before next period. Clear as day, I heard my friend ask what the answer to problem number seven was.
Without looking up from my own homework I answered him. All my other friends at the table stopped what they were doing, one of them asked "What?" So I stop

Drama at the Depot Pt. 2
Drama at the Depot
The sun was already high in the sky when he got to work the next day. He had the dreaded 11-8 shift. The other lot guy was coming in a few hours later. He punched in and went to the break room to finish getting ready for work. He retied his loosely tied shoes, zipped up his fleece. Then he put his apron and coat over that. Checking his pockets for change he found what he was looking for, fifty cents, enough to buy his roll of life savers for the day. He delayed work as long as he could by stopping in the bathroom before heading towards the front.
It was a Monday, so there really wasn't anyone cool working at the moment. He got some water and looked over the warboard. He sighed deeply but quietly. There wasn't anyone cool coming in to work till like one-thirty and it was currently eight in the morning. He moseyed outside after a few minutes. There were few carts in the lot to push, he really hated Monday's sometimes. If at least one person he liked was working, the fa

Drama at the Depot. Chapter 1
He stared with distaste down at the cooling pizza. A half eaten slice still in his hand. What was the point of eating? Tomorrow it would all be over. Why take comfort now? He wouldn't sleep, he knew that. There was no point in that either.
He regretted much in his life. But the one thing he should regret, the event that brought him to this moment in time, he didn't regret. The past few months…He made many mistakes, and now it was too late to make up for them.
The night seemed endless, every minute felt like hours. His gaze drifted to the window. A full moon high in the sky, unobstructed by any clouds. He stared at the moon as he always used too…At least how he used too before everything changed. The moon seemed to shine brighter, almost as if it knew he was watching it. It comforted him, more then the cold pizza or the prospect of sleep did at that moment. But all good things come to a end. He found his mind wondering to the past.

All thought in the months after the Sephiroth incident he had come to accpt Chaos and learn to bring them him or any of the other monsters forward relatively painlessly. If he was forced to transform, it hurt like it did before.
Soon two purple-black wings tore through the flesh of his back, and claws started to sprout on his hands and horns came out of his head. Now Vincent was flying down the rest of the way as Chaos. He soon made it to the ground and landed on the ground almost soundless.

So a while back I started creating my own table-top game for me and my friends to mess around with.  Loosely inspired by things like DnD and Hero Quest.  As well as old computer SUDs and MUDs(Single User Dungeon and Multi-User Dungeon for those that may not know)  Eventually meant to be nine connected maps, with some or all of them being multi layered(With blocked paths that could end up connecting to another ring of maps, so that I or someone else that's playing the game, could expand upon it).  Currently only 2 maps are "done".  And by done I mean play testable.

I haven't worked on it in a while due to lack of inspiration, but figure I might as well post up what I've completed so far.  So in the near future I'll start(As I transfer everything onto the computer, since it's currently all on paper in a series of notebooks) bringing it up online.  Sort of hoping that transferring it to the computer and going through the entire thing again will re-inspire me, so that I may continue to expand the game.

Feel free to give it a try(Once enough of it is posted anyways) if you want too, all you need is some different kinds dice(Currently uses 6, 8 and 20 sided dice) and a pencil and paper(Highly recommended so everyone is one the same page during the game).  It's been play tested with up to three people(Two players plus the 
Dungeon Master/Quest Master/Overlord whatever you want to call it)  Should work with more players at once but it all depends on how long you want each turn rotation to be and since the games not done, there might not be all that much for everyone to do if there's a large amount of players once you get a bit into it.
What would the long term effects of universal unpredictability be on the human brain?  Not just the effect on the current incarnation but on the entire series of incarnations.  Would repeated instances of universal unpredictability leave a mark on future incarnations?  Suppose a strange occurrence creates a neuron path running through two parts of the brain never directly connected before.

Humans with almost supernatural abilities live among us.  All over the world and history, people have claimed a wide variety of talents.  We separate these talents into two categories, natural and supernatural.  Telekinesis, aura reading, and telepathy are some examples of supernatural abilities.  Photographic memory and being able to pick up an instrument and play it very well with no lessons are "natural" talents.  Why do we place these amazing abilities into two separate groups?  I believe this is because we all can relate to a photographic memory as we all have memories, however we all can't relate to reading another’s mind, so we are far less likely to believe anyone else can have that ability.  To me there is no difference between the "natural" and "supernatural" abilities individuals have claimed to have.  

Universal unpredictability must leave a mark on us, just as any other experience does. In future incarnations the effects of universal unpredictability would still be felt.  The memory of the actual event may be lost, but the effect of the experience would live on in new instances of life.  As more strange occurrences happen over the infinite incarnations, they would continue building more neuron paths and strengthening the ones brought about by strange occurrences in past instances of life.  Building up more and more complex pathways until in a future incarnation, that one shot ability, would become another "sense" on top of the five we all know about.

Using myself as an example, the one shot telepathy at the seventh grade lunch table, that event laid the groundwork.  The first neuron path, that with future strange occurrences, will strengthen, a future incarnation of mine will actively be able to read others minds.  This path of thought brought me to another, were other not so fantastic abilities created in the same way?  Writing, drawing, language itself.  Could universal unpredictability have sparked human’s rapid evolution?

Some scientist believe far too little time has passed for Darwinian evolution alone to have caused the mutations that lead to the human brain.  But what is so special about our brain compared to other animals?  We don't have the heaviest brain in the animal kingdom, pure weigh or pound for pound weigh in relation to full body weight.  Even our cerebral cortex is only slightly more complex than other animals.  If the biological brain has not had time to evolve enough for us to be so different than the other animals then what could be the cause?  I believe ancient man experienced the effects of universal unpredictability just as we do today.

Ancient man’s own infinite past incarnations of life would too form new neuron paths that never existed before.  It is these new neuron paths that would then be passed on to future incarnations of ancient man’s life.  The brain itself would stay the same, but the complex neural paths would change.  This Universal evolution fills in the millions of year’s gap between biological evolution and the current state of humanity.

If humans, due to universal unpredictability, could evolve on a universal level and not just a biological one, why haven’t more ancient life done the same thing?  Crocodiles, sharks, and turtles, virtually unchanged since the time of the dinosaurs.  What separates us on a universal level from other creatures that exist?  I believe there are two reasons for this:

The first reason is choice.  Not in that the other animals made the choice to stay the same.  But in the amount and variety of choices they can make in comparison to us.  Any given day a human makes far more choices than any other creature.  When a shark is hungry his choices are fish, squid, turtle, seal and maybe ten to twenty other choices.  For a human, there are more options on a menu at a single restaurant.  Then factor in the number of restaurants and fast food chains.  You also have the option of eating at home, shopping at the grocery store, foreign food markets and before breakfast is over the amount of choices we made just to eat once is more than other creatures make in a month.

The second reason is biological advantage/disadvantage.  What truly sets us apart from most other creatures is not our brains, but our thumbs.  A turtle that evolved to be twice as intelligent as a human would be hard pressed to write his name out, let alone pump out the theory of relativity.  Our vocal cord system of communication allows us to more freely pass information back and forth, in a much more intricate way compared to other animals.  It only takes one human to discover something and through writing and word of mouth everyone, even those who live hundreds of years later, will know about the advancement.

Universal unpredictability.  Choice.  Communication.  I believe these three factors have been driving human evolution forward at an increased rate in comparison to other life.  This led me to wonder if these same factors also govern our cultural evolution.  Why do some isolated people still culturally act as the ancients did?  The invention of brick and concrete never made it to those tribal people, whereas the rest of the world slowly acquired the information through communication.  Choice then set in, the people who learn of concrete had the choice to use it.  This choice lead too many innovations, stronger buildings, roads, new architecture.  The isolated tribesman never had access to this information, they could not even begin to make the choices the rest of the world did.

Universal unpredictability itself would affect these isolated people less.  What I mean is this, take an isolated tribe with a steady population of 50,000.  Universal unpredictability will affect the individual tribesmen just as often as me or you.  They could then communicate, make new choices among themselves about any after effect, any new insight they gained through the event of universal unpredictability.  Compare that to the total population of Earth that is in communication with each other.  More events of Universal unpredictability will be experienced, communicated and many more choices will be made.  Because of the far greater number of people in communication, our culture would advance at a far faster rate than that of an isolated tribe.
__________________________________________________________________________________

How would universal unpredictability present itself?  Even if we are small Universes, universal unpredictability would still have to have a mechanism behind it.  Visions of the future for example would still have to interact with you in a physical sense.  Universal unpredictability is not just a term I use to explain the unexplained.  I believe there must be a precedence in place that would allow for us to experience the strange events brought about by universal unpredictability.

In my theory I refer to what makes each of us who we are, the electrical signals in our brain.  Inside these electrical signals is where the information from our past incarnations is stored.  The electrical signals are made up of electrons, electrons are a quantum scale particle.  Quantum particles can appear, disappear, and be at two places at once.  What if when one of these electrons disappears a different one returns in its place?

Perhaps this exchange of electrons is the key to how universal unpredictability interacts with us.  Want to read someone’s mind, then simply borrow a few electrons from them.  That led me to wonder about the electron that I would have to give up.  Where did that electron go?  Would it ever return?  Was it my electron in the first place?  Like computers, the information we gather in day to day life must be saved somewhere.  Biologically we store this information in our brains, like a hard drive our brains would eventually fill up and then have to delete older information to make room for the new.

Few people can remember all of the information they have gained in just this lifetime.  Information travels around the brain via electrical signals, the electrons that make up the electrical signal then must be able to store the information.  Eventually over many incarnations of your life, even all the electrons that make you who you are must also get filled up with information.

Most scientists believe that information cannot be lost or destroyed, only changed into a different form.  In our case, from biological information stored in the brain, to quantum information stored in electrons.  I purpose that the quantum level of information storage is as removed from the original biological storage as one could get.  Splitting and storing information at a smaller scale and it would become lost, you just wouldn't be able to gather enough of the original data to make any sense of the information back at the biological level.

In order to retain the information from an infinite number of past incarnations I purpose an electron swap.  Not from one another in most day to day life, but from the inanimate Universe we live in.  Everyday a steady stream of changed particles bombard us from the sun, supplying an infinite amount of new particles for us to fill and then exchange out.  As these particles are too of the sub atomic variety, they disappear and reappear, exist at two places at once.  No matter where in the Universe they are when you need to draw upon the information you stored in them, they can return.  Or at least exist wherever the solar wind blew them and inside of you at the same time.
Universal unpredictability is the catalyst that allows for the exchange of electrons between us.  This sharing of information at the quantum level explains how universal unpredictability can actually affect us directly.  No magic is needed, no divine force sending information is needed.  All of the seemingly impossible information comes from within, with a little help from the largest information center.  The vary galactic Universe we live in.

A free writing secession that spiraled into something else entirely.  I've been told it has a Chariots of the Gods? vibe too it. I suppose I agree.  At the end of the day, just a fanciful view on how and why weird stuff happens. Doesn't match up perfectly with part four, sorry, one day I'll re-edit all of this.  The free writing started to peter off a bit at this point.  More just world building then a linear story at this point.

Was I born a Universe in life one?  What separates us from an asteroid or planet?  I believe what makes us independent self-contained Universes and planet Earth not for example is choice.  We may be built from the same base material but we transcend the rocks at our feet.  Everything around us, stars, planets even mighty black holes, everything moves according to gravity and the other three forces.  We do not.
Yes gravity affects us, keeps us on planet Earth, but in spite of the very gravity that keeps us here, we move about however we want.  We make choices, we choose to fight gravity and walk or climb up a mountain.  We ignore our buoyancy and swim with the fish.  Nothing else in the Universe, except at the quantum scale, can roll up hill and not just down, like life.  However we are not at the quantum scale compared to the Universe we see around us.  If we were part of the Universe around us and not separate, we like everything else not at the quantum scale would be bound by the four forces.  Only as separate, independent Universes could we act as though we existed on the quantum level.
______________________________________________________________________________

Since I was a child both my body and my mind have been restless.  I enjoy moving about even when I have no place to be.  My family nicknamed my restless activities doing the jig, or "jigging".  I'd "dance" around the house going room to room swinging my arms, jumping all over the place.  I'd do this for hours, never tiring, not speaking other than intangible phrases and grunts.  When asked why I did this, I would say that it was fun.  My family also asked me what I was thinking about during "the jig", I would reply anything I wanted, and that I wasn't 'thinking', I was seeing.
I continue to pace to this day, I no longer "jig" wildly as I used to, but I still see other things then what is in front of me.  When I pace, I don't see or hear the room anymore, I'm in a different place, experiencing anything I want to happen from the third person point of view.  I am not only "myself" as in my mental representation of myself, but everyone and everything that comes to exist.  As I grew older and my interests changed, so did what I was experiencing.
What makes something real?  When someone tells a story about their life, an everyday story such as, if I and a friend stopped at a store so I could buy something.  My friend tells me that the last time he was in this store he bought eggs.  Now if the last time he was in the store was long ago, they would have no proof of the event.  What makes that different then him saying he had never been to that store before?  There is no tangible proof in either direction, yet one is a lie and never happened, and the other is the truth and did happen.  Only his firsthand account, what he saw, heard, felt makes the truth, the truth.
Over the years I've come to call my experiences during jigging or pacing a metaphorical adventure.  I use this term as the visual interpretation I experience and the underlining information it represents are different.  I've heard stories of monks that use meditation to experience the unexperienceable.  These monks will meditate for long periods of time, months even years if the stories are to be believed.  When they come back, when they stop their meditation, they tell of multiple lives they have lived, Universes they have entered and lived in, knowledge they have gained through these experiences.
The parallel between what these monks report and my own personal metaphorical adventures is uncanny.  I've travelled the cosmos and existed in numerous different realities.  Over the years, as I existed in Universe after Universe a picture developed of the multiverse.


1. The original Universe stands alone.
2-5. Life, independent Universes form, choice is introduced, near identical parallel Universes of the original begin to explode into existence, yet stay incredibly close to one another, due to choice in the original,
6. The original Universe continues to produce more parallels, a new type of independent Universe comes about in one of the now many Universes that exist, a thinking Universe.  Creativity mixes with choice.  A thinking Universe chooses to imagine an impossible reality, one so different that none of the parallels of the original could ever replicate it.  A new original Universe is created by mixing choice with creativity.
7. Both "Original" Universes produce more parallels of themselves, due to choice existing in both.
8. A third "Original" Universe is created in the same way.  The first two "original" Universes continue to make new parallels.
9-20. Accelerated rate of new "Original" Universes coming into existence and creating parallels.
21. Older "Original" Universes slow their creation of new parallels.  Every choice has been made, all parallels of the original has come into existence.  Younger "Original" Universes continue to make parallels.  New "Original" Universes continue to come into existence.
22-xxxxxx. Young "Original" Universes continue to make parallels. The Multiverse begins to get crowded by the near infinite number of Universes that have come into existence.  Universes start getting pushed closer together.  Parallels of the same original start touching, creating even more parallels even if another exact copy of that parallel already exists from the first bout of parallel Universe creation.

I did not set out on my metaphorical adventures to discover anything.  I willing went on them because they were fun.  Imagine your favorite movie, something about that 'movieverse' touched you, leaving you wanting more.  Now imagine that you could exist and interact in that 'movieverse' and countless others similar but slightly different.  I've explored different realities in which I was most familiar with.  TV shows, cartoons, movies, books, and even countless similar to our own Universe in which we live.
One fact keep coming up throughout my metaphorical adventures.  Not all "Original" Universes are created equal.  In easy to visualize form, imagine a scifi movie where Intergalactic space travel as well as interdimensional travel are both possible, and compare it to a down to Earth romance.  If both were "Original" Universes, they would be classified differently.  In one, you could leave your home Universe behind and in the other you would be stuck, a very big difference if both were to exist in the same multiverse.
During my metaphorical adventures, I experienced highs and lows, happiness and tragedy.  I can describe in great detail, the emotions that I felt, the sights I have seen, sound I have heard.  Like my friend telling me about the time he bought eggs at a store, only my personal experience of the events is left.  Does my personal experience of being at the events make it the truth, does it make them real?
Every time I "jigged" or pace, I continue to experience and evolve what I see, hear and feel around me.  Countless events, emotions have been built upon one another, "jig" after "jig", pace after pace. Until an entire Mythology was born, a backstory was written, even religious institutions completely unique to what I experience when I pace, formed.  All of this came about unconsciously among my metaphorical adventures.  I laid the groundwork for it all through my metaphorical adventures, but as time goes on my adventures have started to write themselves.
Characters I have met in older adventures showing up, interjecting themselves into my current adventure.  Slowly over time, as the backstory was written, something was changing.  While I continue to control "Myself", the inanimate Universe around "Myself" and the new characters I introduce on my current adventures, the entities I've created in earlier adventures control themselves.  I can try and influence them, but the end result is not always what I wanted them to do.
Free will.  Through me and my metaphorical adventures, they acquired free will.  If my theory on the multiverse is true, then I may have inadvertently created a new "Original" Universe by mixing my creativity with choice.  The choice to go on these metaphorical adventures in the first place.
I consider myself to be agnostic, however would I not be looked upon as god to these entities I’ve conjured during my pacing?  Without the intention at all on my part, my metaphorical adventures eerily parallel many religious views on what "God" is and what is in his power to do.  If I still interact with the "Original" Universe I created, why doesn't the “God” that created this Universe interact with us?  I believe that in all probability this is because we do not live in an "Original" Universe, but one of countless parallels of that "Original" Universe.  Just as I interact with just the "Original" Universe I created.  The "God" that created our universal original can only interact with his "Original".
Does this make me a god?  As I sit here writing this no, I am no god.  But being a self-contained universe, my choice to go on my metaphorical adventures may still have led to the creation of an entirely new "Original" Universe.
Universal Unpredictability Pt.4
A free writing secession that spiraled into something else entirely.  I've been told it has a Chariots of the Gods? vibe too it. I suppose I agree.  At the end of the day, just a fanciful view on how and why weird stuff happens. Doesn't match up perfectly with part three, sorry, one day I'll re-edit all of this.  The free writing started to peter off a bit at this point.  More just world building then a linear story at this point.

Thanks to everyone that's had fun walking down memory lane with me so far.  I uh, have nothing planned or anything fancy like that for 1,000 pageviews.  Didn't really think my old writings would really get any views tbh. 
Another interesting phenomenon that is reported all over the world is astral projection.  The art of leaving ones body behind and going out into the universe.  Skeptics won't hear anything on the topic, and why should they?  The only explanations put forth are of the divine or occult nature.

I propose that astral projection is just another side effect of universal unpredictability.  As an example, an interesting event took place in my life that may shed light on the topic.  My friend, whose garage we were in during another odd event, and I had a bit of a falling out some years after the incident in his garage.

It had been almost a year since the last time I saw him.  He called me up out of the blue and wanted to get together like old times.  I agreed quickly, I was excited to see him as well.  After meeting up we soon found ourselves in a familiar place, his garage.  We kicked the hacky sac around and caught up on what had been going on in each others life the past year.

No strange sensations this time, it was just a normal day.  However as day turned to night, my friend asked me an interesting question.  "Last week, did you get the feeling you were supposed to be somewhere else?"  I nodded my head and asked why he would ask me that.

He then told me a story.  "Last week, me and some of the guys, went out to have some drinks.  We got to the bar and decided to sit there.  We filled all the chairs at the bar up except the one next to me.  For some reason throughout the night, when it was my turn to buy a round, I would order one extra beer.  I swear out of the corner of my eye I would see you sitting in the extra chair, the extra beer I just bought in your hand.  But when I would look over, nobody was there.  Your laugh, I'd keep hearing your laugh mixed in with all of ours.  I couldn't get it out of my head, I had to call and see you."

The fact is, he accurately predicted a weird feeling I had the week before.  I felt that even as I sat at my home, that there was somewhere else I should be.  The craving for beer I experienced at that time.  I'm not a big drinker, I'll socially enjoy some beers or liquor but only on special occasions would I seek it out myself.

Unlike "The Locker Incident"  where I believe I fully experienced being at two places at the same time.  This time only a feeling that I should be somewhere else and the craving of alcohol was all I felt.  Which on there own meant nothing.  My friends simultaneous experience made me think.

In other incarnations of our life, did we not have a falling out?  If we didn't I'm sure I would have went on the drinking adventure as well.  Did I once again exist at two places at once?  If so, why did I only remember sitting at home and wanting beer?

Universal unpredictability also explains this strange shared experience, but more in the seventh grade lunch table then "The Locker Incident".  We as independent Universes, having lived countless versions of out life, surely in at least a few past incarnations, my friend and I had been in that bar together.  From my point of view, a feeling of wanting to be elsewhere and from my friends end, swearing he both seen and heard me over the course of the night.

We both independently heard whispers from a different incarnation of our life, both whispers about the same event.  Reaching our current selves in different ways.  In the chaotic world of universal unpredictability even rare events, such as both of us sharing an experience from towns apart is possible.  If you have an infinite shuffles of a deck of cards one of the shuffles will undoubtedly have all four suits in order from highest to lowest.  Even with 10 trillion to 1 odds it will happen, and happen more then once.
______________________________________________________________________________

Dreams are an interesting thing.  To this day we don't fully understand what they are or where they come from.  There are all sorts of books on the meaning of situations that occur in a dream.  A few examples are; if you dream of yourself or someone else dying, then that means someone you know is pregnant.  If you dream that you are falling, that represents that subconsciously, you feel your life is spiraling out of control.

What is our subconsciousness?  Some people think that the subconsciousness merely controls our most basic bodily needs and functions.  We don't need to learn to breath, we don't need to be taught that we need to eat and drink in order to stay alive.  But why then do we link subconsciousness to dreams?  Dreaming of a field of flowers in no way is a basic bodily need.

I've heard the phrase, "You can only dream of things you have seen, and anything from a dream, be it person, place or thing, that you know you have never experienced in your life, is just multiple things you've seen mixed together."

The human brain is one of the most complex things we know of in the Universe.  Out of the brain, millions of artwork, statues, movies, video games, TV shows and books have come into existence.  To this day, new ideas keep getting made, ideas that never have existed before.
If the conciseness human brain is given credit to make new objects never before seen, why not the subconscious?  Could the subconsciousness be the repository that stores all of the knowledge of our past incarnation?

Perhaps our dreams are not merely our subconscious randomly regurgitating and mixing together our experiences.  Dreams may in fact be ourselves accessing information from all of our past incarnations.  But like the ancient man who got imprinted by a being from the far future, how would we be able to tell the difference between actual experiences from past incarnations, and those of fantasy, entertainment based memories?  We all remember our favorite movie, as I'm sure our past incarnations also did.

Everyone dreams, although few dreams stay with us.  I've heard that within five minutes of waking, we forget 50% of what we dreamed about that night.  And within ten minutes, over 90% of our dreams are lost.  Leaving us with a few fragmented pieces of the entire night of dreaming.  Why are we unable to remember our dreams?  If dreams are just a compilation of current experiences wouldn't we be able to remember them the same way as the original events that they are built from?

Even while sleeping, the brain remains active.  Neurons still fire their electrical signals back and forth.  Many people believe that these electrical signals interacting with different parts of the brain creates a dream. Why doesn't the brain rest when we sleep?

Perhaps the reason for the continued electrical signals being produced is that only the physical body needs to rest.  A universe does not need sleep.  With the conscious mind inactive, no longer controlling the neurons, what makes each of us who we are, would have free range to transfer any information it wants.  From any past incarnation of our life.  As we wake up from sleep and the mind becomes more active, it takes control of the neurons back.  Since our active mind was not what created the dream experience we forget more of the dream the longer we are awake.  As our conscious brain takes back full control, we no longer have access to the information that created the dream in the first place.

Not all dreams take place while we sleep.  When we are not actively absorbing outside stimulus or figuring out a problem, our minds wonder.  We call this a day dream.  Many of our day dreams lead us back to choices we made earlier in life.  We think of what would have happened if we followed a different path.

Why is it that when we idol our brains we often are taken back to the choices we have made?  I believe this is the subconsciousness mind giving a sneak peak at what might have been to our conscious mind.  We have after all made the other choice in past incarnations at least once before.

Many religions use meditation as a way to reach spiritual enlightenment.  Meditation is the art of clearing ones mind of all distractions, see nothing, hear nothing, think nothing.  Blocking out both internal and external stimulus allows for the subconsciousness mind to reign over the conscious.  If the subconsciousness is the repository of all knowledge we have acquired over countless instances of life, accessing even only a small portion of that information would change us forever.  Is that not what spiritual enlightenment means?

So a while back I started creating my own table-top game for me and my friends to mess around with.  Loosely inspired by things like DnD and Hero Quest.  As well as old computer SUDs and MUDs(Single User Dungeon and Multi-User Dungeon for those that may not know)  Eventually meant to be nine connected maps, with some or all of them being multi layered(With blocked paths that could end up connecting to another ring of maps, so that I or someone else that's playing the game, could expand upon it).  Currently only 2 maps are "done".  And by done I mean play testable.

I haven't worked on it in a while due to lack of inspiration, but figure I might as well post up what I've completed so far.  So in the near future I'll start(As I transfer everything onto the computer, since it's currently all on paper in a series of notebooks) bringing it up online.  Sort of hoping that transferring it to the computer and going through the entire thing again will re-inspire me, so that I may continue to expand the game.

Feel free to give it a try(Once enough of it is posted anyways) if you want too, all you need is some different kinds dice(Currently uses 6, 8 and 20 sided dice) and a pencil and paper(Highly recommended so everyone is one the same page during the game).  It's been play tested with up to three people(Two players plus the 
Dungeon Master/Quest Master/Overlord whatever you want to call it)  Should work with more players at once but it all depends on how long you want each turn rotation to be and since the games not done, there might not be all that much for everyone to do if there's a large amount of players once you get a bit into it.
