“Now. Take for example probable event X. This so-called probable event or action will be experienced by the various portions of the self in their own way. When it is experienced by the ego you call it an actual physical event. When the event is perceived or experienced by other layers of the self, the ego does not know of it.
The event is actual all the same, and is experienced in variation. The whole self therefore perceives and is affected by probabilities, and experiences these as action, regardless of whether or not the ego has chosen to accept any given event as a physical occurrence.
The time sequence varies also as you have seen. That is, events are experienced in different sequences. However past, present and future has reality only to the ego. Now there is some bleed-through. The ego is certainly aware to some extent of the subconscious. The subconscious is certainly aware of the ego. The portion of the self, or rather the portions of the self, that experience action in terms of what the ego would term probability, is further divorced from the ego, however, and this probability reality appears to the ego very rarely, and only very occasionally.
When this does happen it usually occurs as a bleed-through from the subconscious from the dream state, for the subconscious is somewhat acquainted with probabilities, and to some degree experiences these in a problem-solving manner. It views various probabilities with the purposes of the ego in mind, and therefore aids the ego in its decisions as to which probable events it should choose for its own experience.
Now, the time in which the inner ego exists is, as you know, the spacious present. The spacious present is the basic time in which the whole self has its existence, but the various portions of that self have their experience in their own time systems, which are the results of their characteristic methods of perception.
Now. It should be obvious that the psychological framework must be different when the time system of experience is different. You can see easily for yourself the individual psychological variations that exist simply between the ego and the subconscious, but these portions of the self are very close. Other portions of the self, that deal in what you would call probable realities, are very different in their psychological makeup.
There is a chameleonlike characteristic, a continuity, not in terms of successive moments, but a continuity in terms of design. Events are perceived in what would seem a most alien manner to the ego. The probabilities are traveled through, so to speak. Identity or continuity of the self is retained and strengthened in a series of simultaneous events, with value fulfillment foremost insofar as purposeful action is concerned.”
