Human History - The Roman Empire - End of BCE to the 1st-3rd Centuries of the Common Era
In this episode, we discuss the rulers and changes in the Roman Empire throughout the 1st-3rd centuries.Sources:The Essential World History by William Duiker and Jackson SpielvogelWestern Civilizations - by Joshua Cole, Carol Symes, Judith Coffin, and Robert StaceyAlso the works of historian Mary Beard who uses a modern day analysis of Roman History. In conclusion, the Romans established a civilization that still influences the modern world - laws, concept of time, society, economy, buildings, art, music, infrastructure, etc.  The Romans incorporated foreign customs and allowed provinces to rule themselves but under Roman domination.  The human consciousness and the meaning of life differed based on each individual’s circumstance as it does today; however, during this time one could be considered a Roman citizen or strive for Roman citizenship becoming a part of one the the largest empires the world had ever known.  Proving one’s devotion and duty to Rome included worshiping the Roman gods which represented the founding and the empire of Rome.  As we have seen throughout Roman history of the Republic and the Empire that dishonor was typically met with suicide and if one did not obey Roman values then they could be banished.  For many, Rome was the center of the universe and it demanded loyalty from the citizens as state and religion were one in the same.  Although Rome demanded the worship of gods of the state, there were various cults during this time as well as philosophies including Epicurism, Stoicism, etc that shaped the human understanding and meaning of life.  Depending on the Emperor, some allowed the worship of other gods; however, the Roman gods must be served first and foremost.  As historian Mary Beard explains in her documentaries and research, there was a large Jewish population and the Christianity was starting to spread heavily during this time.  The religion was attractive because it gave new purpose and meaning to life, promising a better place and a deeper spiritual connection based on redemption.  The Romans brought their ideas and technologies that helped improve infrastructure around the empire.  The Romans did not come without their flaws as their economy was fueled and made possible by slavery.

Mental Pain - Mental Health
In this episode we will discuss the various types of mental pain that you may experience as a human here in the physical world as well as how to help cope.  Thoughts, feelings, and emotions are non-physical energies that affect the physical world - being our bodies - and produce an energy field around the being.  The non-physical aspects of our lives are often undermined because it exists in a field beyond the capabilities for science to test through the scientific method.  We are often sold the idea that if we cannot prove something through testing or present evidence then it simply does not exist and is ignored.  No one can gauge another person’s mental pain because the experience is relative to the observer.  Every being produces an energy field based on their feelings, emotions, and thoughts which makes an impact on the physical world.  EX: a heavy and thick atmosphere = negative feelings, thoughts, and emotions = lower vibrations: vs a light and bright atmosphere = positive feelings, thoughts, and emotions = higher vibrations.Often people are in mental distress without even realizing it.  We all try to navigate through the physical world with the tools we have gained through knowledge and experience.  We are all born into different families with various social, cultural, genetics, hormones, and economic status.  It is a waste of time to envy another’s predicament as life was never meant to be 100% pleasant at all times and fair.  Ex: wanting to be wealthy, famous, climb the ladder of the social and economic hierarchy, craving power.Mental trauma is energy that can be “trapped” where the being releases said energy in their atmosphere and environment.  Which is why old asylums, hospitals, crime scenes, war bound places, etc carry this heavy negative energy.  Trauma is also passed through genetics in the form of inherited trauma.

Metaphor to Help Explain Space, Time, Existence, and Consciousness
Metaphor to Help Explain Space, Time, Existence, and ConsciousnessThe physical worldWhat we knowLaws of physics change and alters Relativity = explains and describes the universe on a larger scaleMotion of large objects like planets, etcQuantum mechanics = explains the subatomic world and how the universe interacts on a smaller scaleWhy is this problematic?  It cannot tell us the future or past of the universe.These theories are not interchangeable, meaning that the theory of relativity does not apply to the subatomic world and vice versa.  It is as if they are two totally different worlds.We have a past and have a future - time consciousnessWe know that eventually our sun will burn out and the planet Earth will no longer be in its current state.We use space time to describe the events that happen in our reality based on motion.Metaphor that helps describe spacetime to help show there is no beginning or endTake a sheet of paper and place it in front of you next to some drawing utensils.You begin to draw on the paper, whatever it is from a stick figure, a world, a landscape, a being that has yet to exist in our reality.You have ‘created’ one dimensional drawingsBefore the one dimensional drawing, everything existed in different states - whether ideas or physical objects/beings.Meaning the paper was blankThere is no beginning and there is no ending regardless of what you do with the paper.  You can burn it, throw it away, hang it up.  Whatever happened, it still existed.  It was not created or destroyed, it just existed in other states.Now take that piece of paper and think of it as the 3rd dimension/ the physical world/ our current state of consciousness.Whatever you drew on the paper - you were spilling/ projecting your consciousness on the paper.When you were done, whatevers happens to the paper = it lead to an experienceNow think of the piece of paper as your life storyThrough your life - from childhood to adulthood - are imprinted experiences, personality, likes and dislikesYou, the author, existed before the paper - think of the author as your higher conscious selfThe author draws ideas and information from this infinite net = energy that connects everything with one anotherAuthors motives and intentions based on knowledge and experience as well as capabilitiesWhen the author is finished with the piece of paper, You simply get up and do something else.  The piece of paper represents your human life in the physical world/ the universe.Your consciousness projected the art of the piece of paper - drawing from knowledge that has always existed but piecing it together in a unique manner.Regardless of what happens to the paper, it was an experience that allowed YOU the high conscious self project and this projection sparks feelings and emotions in the form of energy imprintsFor more information, please visit www.higherconsciousthinker.com.Please feel free to send me an email at higherconsciousthinker@gmail.com.
