      Not a bad approach actually. In a manner of speaking, that's what we do with the multiple interests in our lives. We try out certain concepts, and if they don't serve us well, we discard them. For years I tried to 'prove' or make practical use of my psychic experiences. Now, anytime I visit those 'stores' I'm disappointed with how poorly they performed.

      > The idea of 'being"'in more than one space and time is interesting and challenging for discussion. Scientists and mystics each have their special jargon, but perhaps 'reality' can be expressed in more common vernacular. I think that what we call consciousness is not a discreet entity but a dynamic between ourselves, others, and our environment. If you can accept that, and the fact that we are thus entangled, parts of us are always in other spaces at other times. Also, written language, art, and images are preserved via audio-visual media and distributed throughout time and space. This present technology, the internet, enables this dynamic quite obviously. Aren't all physical elements interacting and being in more than one specific space-time? What about light? What about holograms? Are we more than our words and images? Doesn't our communication technology reflect that very desire, to be in more than one space-time?
