A system is an ordered grouping of functions, constructed from Spirit using the Word. Thus we have weather systems, water systems, various animal and plant systems, human systems, mineral systems, planet systems, galaxy systems, star systems, insect systems, air systems and so on and so on.
All systems use data – they create data and they use data. The data that is permanently kept within the spiritual world is stored as databases – an ordered classified set of data.
Some of the very large databases in the spirit world get the name of the ‘Akashic records’, this particular database has been seen in visions as a great library of indexed and classified information. But we must not forget that there are literally billions and billions of such databases, because each of us has one in our mind as does everything!
Accessing shared data in the spirit world
The bigger databases are often accessible to us, with help. We can access them, but cannot create, amend or delete the data in them.
Each Database is formed from a large number of Data stores which are cross related - linked by pointers to help in access and navigation.
Analogously, this is a concept with which we should all be familiar. We have all used files or databases on our computer systems to store information - music, pictures, photos, text documents, accounts information, spreadsheet data, and so on. And if we search the Internet, we also find files of information for us to use. The Internet can be thought of as a vast distributed filing system – a large remotely accessible file or database resource. So the spirit world at large is like the Internet and our own mind is like our own computer [and if our computer files are a mess – so probably are our minds !]
The problems of shared data
One of the difficulties of having shared data in the spirit world – whether we look on this as a set of data stores or as one big database - is that since anyone who is spiritually aware and seeking inspiration can access them, different people may get the same ideas. Seek inspiration and you may be accessing the ideas of someone else.
There have been numerous instances which resulted in court cases where musicians and composers have come up with the same tune and there have been cases where writers have claimed their ideas were plagiarised by others. Often the defendant pleads innocence – and their stories are believable, after all who wants to risk being sued for plagiarism. The answer is that they have probably accessed the database seeking inspiration and found the same tune or the same bit of prose.
I have provided a few observations to show the difficulties caused by inspiration.
