The Universal language
This language does not use words. If you hear words, you are probably hearing one of four possible things:
- A past life replay – thus an extract from a past life from your perceptions is being replayed with words only
- A present life replay – part of your perceptions from this life have been extracted and are being replayed as words to you.
- A personality you were not aware of – some people have split personalities and are unaware of it. Occasionally the voice comes from this split personality.
- Inter-composer communication – with another living human being. Your composer has communicated with another composer and has relayed the perceptions of that person. Schizophrenics often suffer from this uncontrolled access to other people’s thoughts and their fear often means that the composer picks up the negative thoughts of other people.
Hearing words is a genuine spiritual experience, it is just not a particularly useful one!
[Note: It is one of the more interesting aspects of spiritual experience that people always seem to believe that the spirit doing the communicating is giving them good advice and that the spirit is ‘important’. In some visions and hallucinations on this site , ego clearly got the better of some observers, people made wild assumptions about who it was that had been ‘speaking’ to them - ‘God’ or ‘Jesus’ or ‘Mohammed’. As we see here lots of words simply means you are having the equivalent of a telephone conversation with another human being or yourself! ]
The Universal language is based on symbols. Some of those symbols we are shown pictorially in visions, but where we get inspiration or wisdom or some other invisible input, all we get is a sense of having been communicated with and a sense that this now has to be interpreted and turned into words. Although we express things in language there is every reason to believe we organise and ‘think’ in this universal language. All animals use this language as their primary form of communication.
The closest we, as human beings, have ever come to having a universal language of our own in the physical world is the language used for the deaf, so we can see it is feasible and workable as quite a sophisticated communication system, capable of expressing anything we need to and perhaps more. Often we cannot express in words what we actually know or feel, there is thus a discrepancy between the richness of this universal language and the poverty of our word based languages.
There are three types of visual symbol used in communication.
- The universal symbol – I have placed some of these symbols on this website under the heading of symbols. In addition I have used these symbols to interpret poems, paintings, visions and so on where it is clear this symbolism is being used.
- Culture specific symbols – some symbols are only applicable to a specific culture. At times, I got the impression that the spirit world uses a sort of bank of images and clips of events, analyses what we associate with each image and then presents whatever is relevant to us at the time. Thus to interpret a symbol properly you have to ask the question – what is that thing used for in that societal group and what sort of attributes does the societal group associate with that thing?
- Personal symbols – some symbols only have meaning to that person, in fact may have no meaning to anyone except the person themselves – and may only be capable of interpretation in the personal context in which the person has the vision.
The composer can select from any one of these in building up a vision.
It is worth adding that the spiritual world sometimes uses single words or a small group of words as a symbol. For example ‘leaves lie’. But they are being used in this context as a form of picture, an alternative for a picture. The overall effect is endless apparent ‘puns’.
Any form of communication may take several hours to unravel as a consequence – the use of pictures and puns can be very confusing. Anyone who likes puzzles and games would be in their element.
Practically all observations contain symbolism, as such in order to understand the observations you have to start to get to grips with the symbols being used. In this you need to remember that even the apparently straightforward may be symbolic, and that the symbols used by the spirit world:-
- have a very distinct grammar, which uses all four dimensions – the 3 dimensions of space plus time.
- can represent a process or processes, an attribute or attributes, or an entity and you have to know which, as the same symbol can be used to describe different things. Furthermore, they may be only an approximate fit of the functions or attributes being described.
- May change over time – so that a different more subtle symbol is used for the same thing to convey more of its attributes.
- May be chosen according to the intelligence of the person and their spiritual experience.
- May also be chosen to be more obscure than perhaps necessary in order to put off those without the willingness to learn, think and persevere.
- Are era dependent – as something goes out of public usage, visions containing that as a symbol also disappear.
- Can be extremely obscure – may even be the opposite of what we think. The purpose being to ‘stimulate us to think higher through the ugliness of the images’
