    We think of humans in contrast to the reptilian morphology. I would not be surprised if the proper framing isn't more like mammals in contrast to reptiles.

    My phrase, "in contrast to" is a replacement for the unnecessary adversarial word versus, which is in the word adversary.

    Language as free of duality as possible, as opposed to contrast, (this sentence not a good example but, 'as contrasted to contrast' was inelegant) will facilitate staying more in the mental body.

    That's right. A very important, crucially so, point.

    I have heard it said from some sources, perhaps we all have, the the Reptoids believe the Earth is theirs. I wonder if the 165 million years the dinosaurs were the dominant species on this planet has any remote connection?

    Just for giggles. I am a Dragon in Chinese astrology.

    Now there's a topic in need of exploring.
    healthy, reasonable, proven effective ways to restrucure the mind/brain.
    Magick?
    Samatha and vipassana meditations?

    Imagination can bring burdens, but also can bring new and wonderful creations, can it not?

    Maybe that brings us to which part of "us" we chose to focus on. The higher or lower. I have often thought that most of us (through encouragement of the ptb) have given our personal power over to the lower (ego) self - and rarely focus on the higher self.

    Agreed. But I'm not sure it has to be slowly, but usually is because we often lack the single-mindedness of purpose to make it a faster process. IMO, we have become accustomed to allowing our brain, lead us, rather than the other way around. Rather like getting on a horse and letting the horse decide which way to go. I believe that's why the Buddha said something like the brain is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master. But in order to get it back into servant mode, we have to be vigilant of our thoughts- and stop them when they're taking us someplace that's not for our higher good.

    What do we mean by "dominant?".

    For example, every living organism that digests plant or animal food sources cannot survive without micro organisms which help to digests proteins and/or cellulose. Without it dinosaurs and mammals would not have been a reality based on their genetic physiological design. (This is just an example, if bacterias did not exist then the genetic design would never have been designed for it of course!)

    If it is a question of numbers, then surely again for example, the micro biological universe is infinitely larger, therefore the dominant force?

    So, in conclusion, if such a race like reptoids exist (and I know they do), then to stake claim to any planet or thing is enough to understand their mindset, a mindset which has caused all wars and suffering on this small blue jewel.

    Also how many dimensions, and time lines do they claim is theirs too?

    Reminds me of an old Native American Indian saying: The only ones more foolish than the man who puts a fence around a piece of land and calls it his - are the ones who believe him.

    My 'for instance' about a reptoid claim to the planet was an attempt to imagine looking through reptoid eyes, with reptoid perception and culture. Also for us to look at things from stance where good and bad are not quite as obvious and clean cut as we might think they are.

    How we feel about things is closer to the fact than how we think about things.

    Dinosaurs became extinct because of an ELE.

    65 million years later man arrived.

    Have they never heard of the 65 million year rule?

    It is basically the 2 second rule when leaving a chair free, except for much longer and a much bigger chair...

    That made me laugh out loud which is exactly what I've been needing! Thank you, Caleb!
    I embrace my desire to feel the rhythm, to feel connected enough to step aside and weep like a widow, to feel inspired, to fathom the power, to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain, to swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human.

    What we mean by dominant ? Or maybe rather its a whole mind set perpetuated why the psychopaths in power ?

    The two second rule is fair enough (if a little disconcerting sitting on a warm seat ) but where did you get the other stuff from ?
