    Default How thought becomes reality

    What Version of your life are you in ???

    For my 80th birthday, I decided to kick my life one version up.

    Having worked in software development and quality assurance, version control had
    dominated my workspace.

    Having gone from DOS version 2 to DOS version 6.21 and from Windows 2.0 to Windows 10 and everything in between, the rules of version control were very simple:
    - increment the version by 1 for a major change and
    - increment the version by 0.1 for a minor change.

    I looked at my life and counted the following:
    - I moved 4 times between continents
    - I moved 16 times between different residences
    - I worked for 14 different companies plus 3 companies of my own.

    I married, divorced and got remarried.

    So looking at the major changes that my life experienced since childhood, I had experienced 13 major changes in my life – lets call them versions.

    In the past major changes in my life had happened mostly out of my conscious control and more by the impact of circumstance. As a magician, and shaman I am well versed in changing realities by a mindful effort. So I decided to make meaningful changes in life
    driven by my desire and need to change.

    Today, this is my live version 14.

    Quality assurance was my main career for quite a while as well.

    Too funny - I have counted myself as having multiple lives. I am probably a couple versions behind you. Lol!

    A lot of software packages ask permission in order to be automatically upgraded. Or they can be manually upgraded when you are ready.

    Life, however, isn't like that. You wake up in the morning to a crisis, a new realization, a complete change in you life. Someone, somewhere is quietly saying "looks like s/he is getting upgraded to version 7.0."

    Well, I like to compare myself to the experiences of others, so I will simplify by saying my life has come down to "rolling stones gather no moss." My friends are now only acquaintances. The two friends I considered I had are dead and standing on the other shore saying, "What is taking you so long? Get over here!" However, I am now on computer number four, left in various places with varying versions of Microsoft and data on them. Will my final version be the Original Program that went before Microsoft, etc.? LENUX? I am fedup with changes. Will I switch to LENUX only to find that they also have gone into the version racket? I too am 80 years young and 80 years fedup.

    I've been thinking 2019 towards the end is a lot of change and weird **** happening ... definitely in line with a required change ...

    Three 'Realities' to consider:

    1) Thoughts ARE reality and by extension...ALL reality is a derivative of such.
    2) Thoughts BECOME reality (and secondary...how that happens)
    3) A coexistence of both.

    Thinking that is why there is so much covert to overt mind-control that occurs. Because those in control of mass media know and other entities know, that the general direction a group consciousness goes, so goes the general tone of reality for humans and the decisions they make go. (As above, so below)

    Quote Imagine there's no heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky

    -- John Lennon
    Quote All in all it's just another brick in the wall. - Pink Floyd
    In a sense, without thought there is no reality and without reality 'I' have no thought/ idea/ opinion about it.

    kfm27917 I think your op title should be 'How thought become your/our illusion'

    All the below have taken dedicated years (year after year)
    Iv'e lived the life of a party animal, going to Disco after disco with lots of booze.
    Iv'e been a draughtsman setting out many a plan for other peoples buildings.
    Iv'e been a stone-head toking my way through many years and tracked down many, many magic mushrooms.
    Iv'e been a panel-beater car sprayer by day and mini-cab driver by night.
    Iv'e been a mediator and mind diver, tripper, not talking to more than one person a day, sometimes none in a week.
    Iv'e been an artist, dedicated and lived the life in persecute of personal creation, it lived through me, I was it's slave.
    Iv'e been an angler, dedicated and lived the life in persecute of oneness with the rivers and lakes, nature.
    Iv'e been a web designer and gamer.
    Iv'e settled for married life and exploring, researching through the web/surfing.
    Iv'e been and done many, many other things all of which have given me insight of so called reality.

    Thoughts are the Pandora drug they are not reality and don't lead to reality,
    they suck you deeper into the illusion.

    Here is a thought for you: 'Think of no material reality'
    then you will be getting nearer to reality and what you really are, not who you are.

    The above might make me sound bitter and or disillusioned, well I'm not.
    I still live a life of wonder with the world and life, still part of the illusion

    Quote What Version of your life are you in ???
    Well i always thought i was like on version 2.0 or so of myself, but ever since i joined this site i realized i wasn't and all the people here talking tons of stuff i did not know anything about made me feel anxious and dumb, like when trying to reply to someone and sometimes i know i'm right and yet i get that feeling that i will be dumb anyway

    So i guess i'm like Beta Build 0.5 and probably will have to reset that soon LMAO!

    Quote In the past major changes in my life had happened mostly out of my conscious control and more by the impact of circumstance
    But when that happened, were there times you were cool with the results or was it always a negative thing, or positive in your life but still not what you wanted?

    Versions are up and down. Some are better, some are worse.

    Going back to software analogy, Windows XP was stable, but later windows Vista, 7 and 8 were not.

    But we are NOT software !

    We are spirits in a body (most of our time here) and here for a reason. As author Richard Bach quoted ( I believe it was in the book "The blue feather") " we are here for learning and entertainment"

    I am also finding out, that just like in the software analogy, certain traits of old builds are permeating from the past, mainly in the form of negative thoughts or attitudes. What it says to me is that this "build" is not yet stable. I will need have to work on finding and correcting bugs to reissue an update !

    Specifically my V7 when my Dad died or V 9 when my then wife left me for another guy and triggered a 15 year period to change and re-establishing my self esteem were terrible lives.
    However V10 where I met my soulmate and V11 and V12 living in California and travelling to all the beautful spots of the SW USA with her were pretty good.

    as I'm a bad english spoker, I'm at risk to say and understand silly things

    so, I can not see any How on this content thread out of the title, unless
    If become a shaman-magician giving power to desires Is intended as How

    being more silly, I even can see a reality of soft versions becoming a life-thought
    and like Sunny-side-up I think the title could be Which Thought Become Reality

    I think Desires create illusions and Will create realities, so I may not be silly alone

    Rogparan:

    I understand your comment about language. English is actually my 4th language.

    But to refer to the main point of your post:
    there are subroutines for both Desires Will in any and all builds.

    Mental models- These are representations or explanations of human behavior that exist on a personal, internal level. A person can generate a mental model in order to understand their thought processes, decisions and consequences. Mental models are a part of the orientation step of the OODA loop.

    Factors that affect the (OODA Loop) mental model
    OODA loops are only as effective as the amount of time it takes to execute a response. Factors that can affect the efficiency of the process include:

    The number of potential scenarios that can be pursued.
    Denial that a specific event has occurred, and refusing to acknowledge it right away.
    The complexity of the stimulus.
    The need for approval prior to carrying out a response.
    The emotional stress of the team or environment at the onset of the stimulus.
    The level of trust that exists within a team to rely on each other’s decisions.
    The amount of intuitive skill that is possessed relating to the stimulus.
    Clearly, or unclearly, defined business goals.
    Stimuli that is constantly evolving or changing.

    interestingly, the loop used by OODA (below)



    its the same (conventional) used by Continous Improvement normative series
    as ISO-9000 (quality) ISO-14000 (environment) ISO-32000 (risk management)




    Other model of PDCA loop (Plan, Do, Check, Act)


    OODA ----- PDCA

    Observe --- "Check "
    Orient ----- Do & Study
    Decide ---- "Plan "
    Act ------- Act

    Does the order of factors change the (thought) product ?
