CHAPTER 36 THE FUTURE Back to the Table of Contents future:Question: I  thought  I  just  read  in  Chapter  Twenty-Seven  that  time  doesn’t  exist. What are you doing calling the last chapter in this book “The Future?” Answer: You’re right. FUTURE:But I also said in Chapter Twenty that “I can still dream;” and that’s what I’d like to do – dream a little about the future – as long as I don’t get attached to the fulfillment of those dreams. Actually, toward the end of your time in the cocoon, you…

CHAPTER 35 U.G. KRISHNAMURTI  Back to the Table of Contents U.G. KRISHNAMURTI:Question: A  lot  of  things  you  have  said  sound  like  stuff  I  have  read  by  U.G. Krishnamurti…. Answer: I’ve read a lot of things from U.G. – no relationship  to J. Krishnamurti  – that I like, too. There are other things I’ve read where he seems to contradict himself a lot, things I disagree with, or maybe things I don’t totally understand. But here’s a sample from this “anti-guru” of what I like…. “People call me an ‘enlightened man’…

CHAPTER 34 JED McKENNA Back to the Table of Contents JED McKENNA:Question: You seem to use a lot of quotations from Jed McKenna, who isn’t a real person – or at least that’s not his real name. Do you think he’s actually for real? Answer: I  said  Robert  Scheinfeld  stopped  along  his  path  as  a  scout.  I  think  Jed McKenna also stopped at a certain point to write his Enlightenment Trilogy. He claims to have emerged from the cocoon as a butterfly… “All that scorched-earth wandering wasn’t the end, it…

CHAPTER 33 ROBERT SCHEINFELD Back to the Table of Contents robert-scheinfeld:Question: You mention Robert Scheinfeld a lot, but you don’t quote him very much; and it’s not clear exactly what you think about his work. Answer: I cannot tell you how much I appreciate Robert Scheinfeld and the role he played in my transformation. It was Robert – through his Busting Loose from the Money Game DVD home study course  (which  is  no  longer  available)  –  who  ushered  me  through  the  back  door  of  the movie theater and into my…

CHAPTER 32 COMPASSION Back to the Table of Contents Question: compassion:This whole model seems to me a very selfish way to live. Where’s your heart? Where’s your compassion for the pain and suffering of others? Answer: I have no interest in justifying or defending “selfishness.” I will leave that up  to  people  like  Robert  Ringer  (Looking  Out  for  #1),  Ayn  Rand  (The  Virtue  of  Selfishness),  Bud  Harris  (Sacred  Selfishness:  A  Guide  to  Living  a  Life  of  Substance), David Seabury (The Art of Selfishness), the Hellers (Healthy Selfishness: Getting the Life…

CHAPTER 31 THE EGO Back to the Table of Contents   EGO:Question: You’ve  been  pretty  hard  on  the  ego  throughout  this  book.  Isn’t  that  a judgment in itself? Answer: Excellent point, and I’m glad for the chance to clarify it. First, let’s make sure we agree on what we mean by the “ego,” since that word has been used a lot and means different things to different people. In  this  book  I  have  used  “ego”  to  mean  the  personality  construct  we  create  while playing the Human Game. It is composed…

money:We talked in Chapter Twenty-Four about “virtual reality”…. If part of your computer-generated “virtual reality” experience was to look at your bank account and see a million dollars in it, I wonder whether you would say, “This must be a mistake. I didn’t earn that money.” Most likely you would realize it was created out of thin air by the designer of your “virtual reality” experience and would not need to figure out how it got there. In fact, you would know how it got there. But according to quantum…

CHAPTER 29 TRUST Back to the Table of Contents TRUST:Question: Is it true, what L. Ron Hubbard once said, “On the day when we can fully trust each other, there will be peace on Earth”? Answer: No, not really, because the way he said it makes it sound like we should be working to learn to trust each other, and if we could succeed, we’d have peace on Earth. That’s just another incorrect twist to the Truth that happens inside the movie theater. The intentional community I have been associated…

CHAPTER 28 KARMA, CAUSE & EFFECT Back to the Table of Contents KARMA:Question: So what about karma? Answer:  As I’ve said all along, there is a grain of truth in every philosophy,  every religion, every spiritual path; but in the first half of the Human Game, that truth had to be perverted to a greater or lesser degree in order for a Player to experience limitations and restrictions or the Game wouldn’t work. In  this  case,  the  truth  about  karma  has  been  twisted  in  many  ways  until  it  means many…

CHAPTER 27 PAST LIVES? Back to the Table of Contents past-lives:Question: What about past lives? Answer:  I love this question, because I believed  in past lives  for about fifty years, before encountering quantum physics and the truth of the Human Game model. Not only did I believe, but I had many detailed “memories” of a number of those past lives. But before we can talk about past lives, we have to talk about time…. From the  research  in quantum  physics,  we know time  does not exist in  The Field, where…
