A description of the experience

Robert Monroe

 Turning inward … I immediately encountered the expected:  a layer – or file – containing every moment of my life to date, with more pouring in that matched exactly my thoughts and actions as I conducted the investigation.  Other signals were still coming in from the physical body.  This was far more than memory, as we consciously think of it …. I tested the storage system several times with great fascination.  Upon selection of a given point in the past, I relived the event in every detail, down to each minute sensory input, thought and emotion.  I soon realised such super memory was not altogether pleasurable.  With such intense hindsight, one become all too painfully and sadly aware of the many irrational decisions made, the stupid mistakes, the missed opportunities.  The exciting incidents were no longer exciting because I knew the outcome.  The joyous moments often seemed infantile, and the infantile sad and amusing.

Robert Monroe – Ultimate Journey

 Monroe:  Then you are the total of what I have been whatever or however that was

 I-Self :  The focal point, the tip of the pyramid of you and more, including you as you are now

 Monroe:  It must be rather a mess!

 I-Self:  Not at all.  We are highly organised.  You know the perception layer?  It's neatly set up in serial form and also by category.  So are all the existence patterns we've been through.  You can look up what you want immediately

Robert Monroe – The Ultimate Journey

Beyond the barrier there were hundreds and hundreds of what appeared to be waving beams of multi-coloured lights.  Uncertainly, I reached out and touched the nearest one.  A rich male voice rang in my mind....... immediately another brightly glowing beam, mauve in colour came close........  This voice was female!

That was only the beginning.  The process was repeated again and again.  Each time it became easier.  Now I realised that every beam of light was one of me, one of my personalities with a different life experience.  Lodged within my 'I-There' was a corresponding life pattern of each personality in great detail.  This, I realise, is an inadequate description, because each is a conscious, sentient being ….. Communication was easy because I was holding forth with myself!  Some of them were familiar, as I knew of them as driving forces in my present life experiences.
