the Physical Body
First Inner Mind
(IM-1), is the most basic layer, with little ability for
comprehension or understanding beyond those processes
which maintain life.
IM-1 is the extremely well insulated, robust and is the
elemental, preconscious mind; that which is common to
all life, be they considered plant, animal or even
elemental (more later on).
IM-1’s role is to maintain the autonomous life
preserving functions of the physical body. When the
rest of the mind is disabled, IM-1 is capable of holding
a body in relative stasis, maintaining life in that form
known to medicine as a profoundly deep coma, which may
often involve the
second inner mind (IM-2), dependant of the coma’s
Not yet with subjective identity, IM-1 exists in an
universe of itself only.
Second Inner Mind
(IM-2) is the deep sub-conscious level which preserves
the genus’ and species’ inherent, base instincts,
responses and behaviours. It communicates and
interfaces primarily with IM-1 in a synchronous
partnership of instinct and response. IM-2 also
interfaces regularly with IM-3. In times of exceptional
stress or relaxation, IM-2 may access IM-4 directly and vice versa.
IM-2 is a robust and well insulated (like IM-1)
preconscious mind which is both common to all in the
near evolutionary path and specific to the species as a
whole. IM-2 is like the child who can not be
for to it no other but self exists.
IM-2’s role is to bring forward instinctive reactions
for survival and a physical empathy for those of the
same species. The strength of influence of IM-2 is far
greater in those considered lower species than man, but
in times of stress,
disablement of higher levels of the inner mind etc.,
IM-2 will influence greatly the actions of the
responsive inner minds.
Deep situational & instinctive fears, physical reactions
to triggers of deep species survival instincts and the
like are the domain of IM-2. Far more accessible to the
conscious levels of the inner mind, IM-2 is called upon
often as the lower sub-conscious.
Should IM-2 become dominant through
accident, dysfunction or
disease, situational triggers may manifest socially
inappropriate responses, often in the realm of the fight
or flight options.
Third Inner Mind
(IM-3) is the last level before the conscious mind and
is the realm of species specific, higher level
behaviours, social instincts and deep inherited familial
and racial memories. This is the level typically
referred to as the sub-conscious in psychology.
IM-3’s role is to ensure the social and environmental
survival of the physical being as well as observational
learning regarding other species upon which survival may
IM-3 is a less insulated and robust (than the lower
levels) and of far greater complexity and function.
IM-3 is the upper sub-conscious mind which is capable of
significant levels of information processing and
learning when compared with the essentially static
natures of IM-1 & -2. Not yet encumbered by conscious
limitation, IM-3 is capable of exceptional processing
and extrapolation as required by social and personal
IM-3 is one with which the conscious mind
(IM-4 especially) can commune
regularly, but resists direct continuous communion for
fear of becoming entangled in the underlying basal
workings of the deeper levels. IM-3 is used by the
conscious mind to set new belief / behaviour patterns
and modify pre-existing ones.
IM-3 also interacts with the first outer mind (OM-1),
essentially bypassing the conscious levels of mind and
function. Significant dreams and inspirational flashes
can often occur in IM-3 when the upper levels of the
inner mind are at
rest enabling IM-3 to
communicate with OM-1.
Should IM-3 become dominant, inappropriate behavioural
states, delusional states of mind, detachment of
personality and lack of strong singular identity may
result, especially when considering that IM-3 is not
capable of understanding the role of external
personalities in existence beyond a basic, objective
interactivity – more based in survival than true
empathy. Sociopathic and psychopathic
manifestations may result.
Fourth Inner Mind
(IM-4) is the level of the lower conscious mind and is
the realm concerned with identity of self and
surroundings, learning and processing societal rules and
non-instinctual behaviours, often overcoming the
instinctive self-oriented impulses generated in the
underlying levels in favour of societal rules and norms.
IM-4 is the most robust of the conscious levels of the
mind and is the first layer of the mind aware of the
existence of others as interactive and sentient
IM-4’s role is to learn about and interact with others,
learn and execute physical actions and observational
learning of other species and people at a conscious
IM-4 is the level of learnt, often automatic responses
and non-complex language.
IM-4 is capable of learning and understanding rote
behaviours and responses, and represents the lower side
of the conscious mind.
Should IM-4 become the dominant IM level, a functional
and social human being
will occur, although little in the way of 'deep'
thoughts and investigations of existential dilemmas
would be likely. Also the natural warrior's level,
able to learn, act, adapt and overcome but not requiring
of deep philosophical reasoning to act or react.
Fifth Inner Mind
(IM-5) is the level of the higher conscious mind, with
ability to mould and change itself, allowing
malleability or fixation in any chosen measure. IM-5’s
role is higher level skills acquisition and execution,
complex communication and, to some extent, innovation.
IM-5 is the first level where the concept of justice
and law exist simultaneously to the action-consequence reality
of IM-4 and the essentially stimulus-response of the
It is the fifth layer of the inner mind in which the
beginning of questioning of existence occurs, the self
exploration of what makes the owner of the mind unique.
It is IM-5 which assimilates, assesses and plans beyond its own scope of current
experience, but within the framework of its experience
and that observed of others.
IM-5 is the layer which seeks interaction and exchange
of abstract concepts with other minds, developing new understandings through
communication rather than observation and
stimulus-response experiences alone. IM-5 that can
sub-intentionally and sometimes intentionally learn to
communicate directly with OM-1 & sometimes OM-2 and the
multiple layers of the sub-conscious and meta-conscious
Sixth Inner Mind
(IM-6) is the lower meta-conscious mind. As the third
inner mind communicates with those levels below, the
sixth layer communicates with those below and sometimes
the IM-7 above. Interestingly, in most human
experience, we seldom to very rarely access or use the
meta-conscious levels of IM-6 and IM-7. Those who
innovate and create
are often very adept at accessing and actively using
their IM-6; accessing the functions of IM-6
in a more abstract way and making use of IM-6’s bias
to problem solving processes in scenario based
In states of extreme, be they extremes joyfully, fraught
or deliberately sought, the IM-5 & IM-6 can blend and
become operationally as one, recognised as moments of
strong intuition, of premonition and
IM-6’s role is innovation, inspiration and
innovative thought processes as well as being the
of low level clairvoyance and similar abilities.
Through training, suitable adepts may be gain access to
the energetic pre-existence state via IM-6, which will
also typically lead to development of IM-7’s ability to
communicate directly with the Outer Mind.
Seventh Inner Mind
(IM-7) is the higher layer of the meta-conscious, in
which resides all experience, memory and sentience ever
experienced by the individual but stored in the physical
capacity of the brain and body. IM-7’s role is
essentially a more refined and magnified version of
IM-6. with a bias toward abstract and plenty-string
arguments and intellectual developments.
Deep philosophical cogitation, innovation in abstracts
like cosmology etc. rather than problem solving
situations described in the previous section typically
use the IM-7
In rare moments, IM-5 and IM-6 may, individually or
combined, gather information directly from the seventh
inner mind, recognised as moments of deep inspiration.
IM-7 is also boundary level for the outer multiple minds
of life, which are also set in similar structure to the
individual mind. This is the level where linear
corporeal meets non-linear spirit.
IM-7 is also capable of accessing all of the lower
levels of the inner mind and interfacing with any or all
of them as required, but generally only in quiescent
periods of time.
An adept, with suitable training may learn to access and
utilise this seventh layer of the inner mind, allowing
access to the outer mind without the physical
transformation usually necessary to participate actively
with the outer minds at a conscious level [death]. It is IM-7
that essentially 'filters' the experiences of the outer
mind, making them something that the linear human being can
Some adepts can learn to access the first, second and
third outer minds via IM-7, leading to superior
clairvoyance, healing abilities and remote viewing and
other traditionally “psychic” gifts.
Some psychotropic or stress induced experiences can
result in a person’s mind ‘shorting out’, with
inappropriate manifestation of control to these higher
levels of consciousness. The meta-conscious mind is
totally unsuited to operating a human being in a
society,.. these are roles of the fourth and fifth inner
In cases of certain savants gaining access to these
upper realms without the filters of the conscious mid
IM’s, these abilities may manifest as spectacular but
completely unordered visions, often labelled as dementia
In relatively rare cases, typically through unwise
journeying (most often through psychedelic drug use),
the inner mind loses the distinction between linear and
non-linear realities. It is part of why any
journey outside of the Middle Kingdom should only ever
be conducted with a living guide who knows those realms
and can guide and protect your mind, someone who you trust totally.
Losing yourself to both linear and non-linear states can
only result in
the shattering of a mind, a very real destruction of
that which is a
person. This shattering has only been survived
once within my extended circle of knowledge. When the mind is shattered, it is only time
before a body follows and life departs. We will discuss
this in detail later on.
