Seth on: Frameworks 1 and 2
Framework 1 is physical reality...or normal life.
Framework 2 is where the inner mechanisms that happen prior to your
experience take place. There all detail will be arranged, the seemingly
chance encounters, for example, the unexplained coincidences that might
have to occur before a given physical event takes place.....it is the
medium in which our world exists.
Dictation: You must understand that in a manner of speaking, Framework
2 is on the one hand an invisible version of the physical universe.
On the other hand, however, it is far more than that, for it contains
within it probable variations of that universe --- from the most cosmic
scale, say, down to probable versions of the most minute events of any
given physical day.
In simple terms, your body has an invisible counterpart in Framework
2. During life that counterpart is so connected with your own physical
tissues, however, that it can be misleading to say that the two ---
the visible and invisible bodies --- are quite separate. In the same way
that your thoughts have a reality in Framework 2, and only for the
sake of a meaningful analogy, thoughts could be said to be the equivalent,
now, of objects; for in Framework 2 thoughts and feelings are far more
important even than objects are in physical reality.
In Framework 2 thoughts instantly form patterns. They are the
"natural elements" in that psychological environment that mix, merge, and
combine to form, if you will, the psychological cells, atoms, and
molecules that compose events. In those terms, the psychological events that
you perceive or experience can be compared to "psychological objects"
that appear to exist with a physical concreteness in space and time.
Such events usually seem to begin somewhere in space and time, and clearly
end there as well.
You can look at an object like a table and see its definitions in
space. To some extent you are too close to psychological events to
perceive them in the same fashion, of course, yet usual experience seems to
have a starting point and a conclusion. Instead, experienced events
usually involve only surface perceptions. You observe a table's surface
as smooth and solid, even though you realize it is composed of atoms and
molecules full of motion.
In the same way you experience a birthday party, an automobile
accident, a bridge game, or any psychological event as psychologically solid,
with a smooth experienced surface that holds together in space and
time. Such events, however, consist of indivisible "particles" and
faster-than-light perceptions that never show. In other words, they contain
psychic components that flow from Framework 2 into Framework 1.
Any event, therefore, has an invisible thickness, a multidimensional
basis. Your skies are filled with breezes, currents, clouds, sunlight,
dust particles and so forth. The sky vaults above the entire planet.
The invisible [vault of] Framework 2 contains endless patterns that
change as, say, clouds do --- that mix and merge to form your
psychological climate. Thoughts have what we will for now term electromagnetic
properties. In those terms your thoughts mix and match with others in
Framework 2, creating mass patterns that form the overall psychological
basis behind world events. Again, however, Framework 2 is not neutral,
but automatically inclined toward what we will here term food or
constructive developments. It is a growth medium. Constructive or
"positive" feelings or thoughts are more easily materialized than "negative"
ones, because they are in keeping with Framework 2's characteristics.
If that were not the case, your species would not have existed as
long as it has. Nor would the constructs of civilization --- art,
commerce, or even technology --- have been possible. Framework 2 combines
order and spontaneity, but its order is of another kind. It is a
circular, associative, "naturally ordering process," in which spontaneity
automatically exists in the overall order that will best fulfill the
potentials of consciousness.
At birth, each person is automatically equipped with the capacity
toward natural growth that will most completely satisfy its own abilities
--- not at the expense of others, but in an overall context in which
the fulfillment of each individual assures the fulfillment of each other
In those terms there is "an ideal" psychological pattern to which you
are yourself immediately connected. The inner ego constantly moves
you in that direction. On the other hand, that pattern is not rigid, but
flexible enough to take advantage of changing circumstances, even as a
plant will turn toward the sun though you move it from room to room
while the sunlight varies its directions. The inner ego does not exists
in time as you do, however, so it relies upon your assessment of
situations with which your reasoning is equipped to cope.
Obviously there are objects of all sizes, durability, and weight.
There are private objects and public ones. There are also "vast
psychological objects," then, sweeping mass events, for example, in which whole
countries might be involved. There are also mass natural events of
varying degrees, as say, the flooding of large areas. Such events
involve psychological configurations on the part of all those involved, so
that the inner individual patterns of those lives touched by each such
event have in one way or another a common purpose that at the same time
serves the overall reality on a natural planetary basis. In order to
endure, the planet itself must be involved in constant change and
instability. I know it is difficult to comprehend, but every object that you
perceive --- grass or rock or stone --- even ocean waves or clouds ---
any physical phenomenon --- has its own invisible consciousness, its
own intent and emotional coloration. Each is also endowed with patterns
toward growth and fulfillment --- not at the expense of the rest of
nature, but to the contrary, so that every other element of nature may
also be completed (all with much emphasis).
At certain levels these intents of man and nature may merge. I am
speaking in very simple terms now, and yet those involved in a flood, for
example, want the past washed away, or want to be flooded by bursts of
vital emotions such as disasters often bring. They want to feel a
renewed sense of nature's power, and often, though devastated, they use
the experience to start a new life.
Those with other intents will find excuses to leave such areas.
There will be, perhaps, a chance meeting that will result in a hasty trip.
On a hunch someone else might suddenly leave the area to find a new
job, or decide to visit a friend in another state. Those whose
experiences do not merge with nature's in that regard will not be part of that
mass event. They will act on information that comes to them from
Framework 2. Those who stay also act on the same information, by choosing
When you enter time and physical life, you are already aware of its
conditions. You are biologically and psychologically predisposed to
grow within that rich environment, to contribute on all levels to the
fulfillment of your species --- but more than this, to add your own unique
viewpoint and experience to the greater patterns of consciousness of
which you are a part.
You are beginning to understand the intimate connections that exist
in your physical environment. The psychological connections, however,
are far more complicated, so that each individual's dreams and thoughts
interweave with every other person's, forming everchanging patterns of
desire and intent. Some of these emerge as physical events, and some
