When a person gets older, the individual energy bodies fill up, so to speak, with the moments experienced. When the individual energy bodies are still empty, because the person is still quite young, then there are no memories, so to speak, and therefore time seems almost not to progress for a young person. When the person grows older and there are more and more experienced moments in the energy bodies, then for an old person time feels as if it is progressing faster and faster at a run. Why is this, we ask? Each moment experienced will occupy a certain amount of space in an energy body, and if many great moments have been experienced, then a great deal of space will be reserved for that moment. The energy bodies can hold a vast amount of information, but if there are only a few moments, then the consciousness finds these memories quickly, so the consciousness has nothing to do most of the time. When the consciousness has nothing to do, it gets bored and when there is boredom, time passes very slowly for the consciousness because when it is doing nothing, it has a lot of time to perceive its environment very carefully. Young people are often bored and because the consciousness has a lot of computing capacity at its disposal, all the senses can perceive a lot of detail. Due to the fact that the environment can be observed very closely, the felt moment of young persons stretches so that time simply does not like to pass. Older persons have many moments cached and whenever the person thinks of something, these moments are searched and compared. This uses up a lot of computing capacity and the human consciousness will feel very short moments, so it perceives time as being compressed and these persons then think that time seems to be running. The moments experienced are stored temporarily in the energy bodies and when you sleep, these moments are transferred to the spiritual world. When the moments have arrived in the spiritual world, they are deposited in the so-called Akashic Chronicle, so that even during your lifetime spiritual beings are given the opportunity to marvel at the moments of living beings. When you dream in your sleep, you do not re-experience these moments, but the masters and teachers of the person prepare the dream stage so that you can learn from your experienced moments, because the masters and teachers have direct access to the moments in your energy bodies, so that they also know exactly what you have experienced. You will not relive the moment you have experienced, but the dream stage has been created so that you can learn from your behaviour and for that the moments are used as an opportunity to train you. What does knowing about these moments have to do with dementia we want to discuss, we ask? If the moments are constantly searched by the consciousness to compare them, then dementia will ensure that these people will hardly be able to do so. Dementia is a degenerative process that damages brain tissue and since the brain is responsible, among other things, for ensuring that all information is exchanged between a person’s bodies, the destroyed brain tissue will disrupt this process. Even more – the brain will stop many bodily processes that are essential for survival, so that the death of the living being seems inevitable. What exactly causes the degeneration of the brain substance, we ask? It is yourselves, because you neither think about what you want to do nor ponder how the world works. The brain is the engine that drives the stream of thought, but the brain is also much more. Just as the brain makes cancer appear in a living being at some point, the brain makes dementia appear in the same way, because both processes cause the body to meet an untimely end. In the case of cancer, the trigger is an environment that appears unsurvivable and dementia appears when the person stops thinking about important aspects in the living together. When the body of a living being recognises that the person is thinking less and less about interpersonal issues, then at some point the moment has come when the brain starts to degenerate. This process is designed to ensure two things.
- The person has given up on himself, so he will not be a useful member of any society, so the task for the person is finished. The body will die faster than intended, so demented people would actually still have enough energy to exist longer, but self-healing in the brain is hindered by degeneration, with no hope of recovery.
- The person will follow this process with full consciousness for a while, so that in this shortened time many great insights are gained that were far away before the dementia appeared.
These two points are the most important aspects of dementia, so that not only the person with dementia learns a lot, but also their environment. When family members have to take care of people with dementia, it is an extraordinary burden and even though this time is tragically remembered by many family members, the family members have changed during this time because they have now been forced to think about life and death. When children grow up in a family, they will adopt many of the character traits of the older family members, so that older people who no longer want to reflect on their lives and no longer give much importance to human existence will set an example for all the younger family members. However, in order for this cycle to be broken, the younger family members must come to terms with the situation that living with a person with dementia entails. This should be seen as a lesson for the immediate family of the person with dementia, because all family members will be affected. This is a time of hardship and tragedy because it is a chain reaction that tests the cohesion of the immediate family. If the cohesion is fragile, the family relationships will rearrange themselves and even if the readers affected now will hardly believe it, but in the long run you will all have learned from it and you will go through your life differently after the test than before. Also, all family members will be confronted with their own transience so thoughts of it will hardly rest because each family member has experienced first hand what a huge burden dementia places on the rest of the family so they will behave differently than before. Dementia is actually meant to stop destructive behaviour in groups, and we should also explain what we mean by destructive behaviour. People need each other because, strictly speaking, people are herd animals that have little chance of surviving on their own. There are exceptions, of course, but you are much more adaptable as a group than a loner could ever be. You need a group to belong to, and it does not have to be the family, because groups have one goal and that is generally to strengthen the common good of the group members. Just like in a family, groups will be concerned that their own do not come to harm, so there are weak and strong groups. In the past, the family was a very strong group because the family was extremely important for survival. Today you can live without direct contact with the family and because you can integrate everywhere, you are always a member of a group so that you strengthen each other. But if only one member of the group no longer stands up for the group, other members of the group will follow suit, so that in the long run the group will be weakened more and more from within. This is considered a destructive behaviour and since family members are not expelled from the family, in the long run the family is weakened from within. In order for this not to happen, dementia will appear in the destructive person to be a test for the whole group in which it can only ever grow, even if this sounds very unlikely at first. Dementia is not curable, but you will soon be able to slow down dementia so that the demented person is hardly distinguishable from a healthy person.
