A Communication Conundrum

co•nun•drum (kə-nŭnˈdrəm)

  • n. A paradoxical, insoluble, or difficult problem; a dilemma

From its trailer, it would be easy to label the 2016 movie Arrival as a science-fiction story, but I would categorize it as “a cinematic conundrum.” It is a puzzle that invites us in to ponder the riddle of these aliens and to try to understand them through the only language they display — a series of circular inkblot-like characters that they inject into their liquid environment from one of their appendages.

To help us understand them through their language, Louise Banks (played by Amy Adams) quickly becomes the central character, called in by the military because of her skill in translating from one language to another. She gives us an early warning about the pitfalls of translating by telling one of the military officials an anecdote about the exchange that took place between the early explorers of Australia when they first encountered the aborigines of that continent.

Seeing an animal they didn’t recognize, the explorers pointed to it and asked, “What is that?” The aborigines replied “Kanga roo,” so the explorers assumed that that’s what the aborigines called that animal (and what we ourselves call it today). However, Banks then explains that “Kanga roo” in the aborigine language means “I don’t understand.” That example becomes important later in the movie, when she misunderstands what the aliens are telling her and that misunderstanding becomes amplified further when it is communicated to the military who are charged with determining whether the aliens pose a threat or not. Were they saying “weapon” or “gift”?

Language is based in a culture and a way of perceiving. In the movie, we learn that the complexity of the circular symbols is based in the complexity of the alien’s perceptions about reality, and about the existence of things within time, both forward and backwards. They are not confined to linear perceptions, and to understand them, what they are communicating, and their purpose in appearing at all, Louise and the other protagonist in the film (a mathematician played by Jeremy Renner) must work together to untangle the mystery by themselves coming to terms with non-linear processes.

The very structure of the film itself is non-linear, and what we originally assume are flashbacks turn out to be “future memory” instead. The title of the film appears at the end, instead of its customary place at the beginning. Some scenes repeat entirely with no apparent logic to that occurring until one “gets” that the movie is itself moving backwards and forward in time. It isn’t until the very end of the movie that Banks reveals what has been going on, and I leave it to you to see the movie if you want more on that.

The reason I am bringing this up at all is because of the difficulty and frustration I am experiencing in trying to communicate my understanding of what is going on with regard to this current transition through using language that some of you appear to either not read correctly or simply don’t comprehend.

When I receive “channeled” information, it is communicated to me telepathically — mind to mind. The information comes in as a holographic packet that I refer to as “the impress” because it is an impression I receive. It is felt, rather than heard, and contains complex information that has to be translated from one cultural reference to another.

My ability to translate the impression depends on my skill with language, my openness to perceptions/models that are not part of my normal daily existence, and my ability to surrender up my ego and any preferences regarding what I am being given.

The perceptions of the Hosts are quite different than those I use when I am operating as a 3D human. However, that is a veneer I have been conditioned to develop in order to “fit in” and function here. It is not my true nature and my veiling is not total, so I still experience bleedthroughs and memories from other times and places than I have lived in, including the “future self” that I am returning to. This is especially so when I am interacting with someone I interacted with in those other times and places, but not exclusively so.

In New Age parlance, the word “multidimensional” is used often, as if everyone understands what that means, but as the movie shows, multidimensionality is something that has to be experienced in order to fully understand it. Trying to establish the complex relationships depicted in the circular forms that the aliens use for written communication does not do more than give Louise and her co-star the ability to develop a complex catalog of words that might be the ones being communicated. WHICH word depends on context and complicated mathematical forms. (Mathematics itself is a language expressed through symbols that represent certain values and conditions.)

Music and mathematics are examples of multidimensional thinking. They can be written and shared through the use of symbols, but the actual content occurs in someone’s mind and gets translated through the experience of the music or through grasping the logic of the mathematics via a similar cognitive leap. In trying to talk to others about what I experience multidimensionally, I am limited to words and images, and they do not always convey what I intend to convey. There is always much left out and much of the richness is sacrificed in order to convey what CAN be conveyed through words.

The alien language depicted in the movie is written in liquid medium (think “ink”), projected into a liquid environment. The situation that the Hosts are describing is also liquid. Fractals are involved, as well, so certain aspects are revisited and explored anew with each iteration. The reality we are returning to is so much more liquid than this one, we will have to leave behind all our definitions and become fluid in our interactions with everything else. The words the aliens used expressed complex relationships whose meaning was only understood in context. The more complex the context or environment, the more difficult it is to reduce to simple terms that can be expressed in our kind of language.

The information that comes to me telepathically is presented as a packet or stream of information that contains mental concepts, visual images, sounds, smells, and (most important of all) feelings that are a language in themselves. It is difficult to try to reduce that holographic richness into words and then to hope that those words will sufficiently transcend the differences of culture, perception, experience and clarity that each person carries and to correctly convey what is meant or intended.

I have done my best at all times to try to deliver what I am given with the greatest possible clarity and fidelity to the source. Based on the responses I have received, I have succeeded for some and not succeeded for others, but it is a product of the receiver interacting with me and what they carry in terms of beliefs, filters, and experiences meeting up with what I offer from my end that determines how much is transferred accurately and successfully. There is always coloration, and there is no way around that fact.

I do feel that, regardless of how the rest of this transition plays out in the world of form, I have done my best in the task to which I was called to serve, and now I am finishing up with that task altogether. If there is something else I am able to share that is useful, I will. At some point, though, this blog (and my voice in it) will have served its purpose and come to an end. The server is paid for until March, but whether I continue in this role past the end of this year will depend on factors that are beyond my control or ability to see.

No matter how it goes, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a smooth passage through whatever seas lie ahead and may we soon be together again, as we were so very long ago! I also want to thank those who have given their support through financial contributions and through posting. It has enriched us all.

Yours in service and in light,

Thanks, Traveler. The words do work as an energetic anchor as well. Picking up on the multidimensional aura within and around the source-message when reading your words does happen pretty easily, but as you said that’s part on the receiver to tune in that way.

As a kid, and not in a morbid way, I never thought I would live past 25 and I had my 26th birthday this week- definitely a distortion meaning change in life/form early on haha, but it’s amazing how it has lined up within my spiritual journey and transition here on Earth. I keep up with a lot of sound sources, no fluff, like yours and the cross referencing of solid data over 20 years has lead to some very obvious crossing of data streams. It’s a beautiful web of options and all you have to do is subscribe to a belief/where you gravitate. It’s time to pick a station for anyone undecided. All truths are true.

Your messages are appreciated, Traveler. I also feel that the majority of people who are strongly in line haven’t taken the time to comment in general, due to usual peanut gallery commentary, but that may change and be manifested in a much more present way…the players are changing on the stage.

Sage,

As a child and all throughout my younger years I never thought that I would make it past 30, in a non-morbid way of course. It was just one of those things you accept because it feels right. Every day since my 30th birthday (I am now 34) has been something of what Traveler has described in this post as non-linear. I have had two more children that I didn’t even know were waiting to be born! Meaning that I DID know about my first few lol. It has really been an exceptional life for me and I only realize how much so when I am here. Reading comments like yours and being able to feel how much this thing or that thing resembles my life. Sometimes I feel like I have experienced it all and yet all of it is completely new. But that is the nature of being non-linear I believe. Anyways, thank you for posting about this, it has brought to my attention once again just how fascinating this journey is and how grateful I am to be here with one and all.

Thank you again Sara/Adonna/Traveler for all that you have done for the OT family and especially for me.

As you have said so often everything has been scripted and this as well has.

I verily believe we as veiled 3D humans cannot fathom what will or how it will happen once we pass through the null zone, so trying to get a handle on it may just cause anxiety and thus LGLG direct is the best advice that the HOH and you have stated on numerous occasions..

Till we meet again on the other side of this veil, love, peace and happiness.

Dear Sara/Adonna/Traveler,

It’s 16th morning 7.40 am in Sri Lanka. I just woke up and read all the comments and the new post.

It shows the love and great care that you have for patiently replying to all the comments. It’s so profound. You have done so much service to humanity and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

You have brought meaning and happiness to our family and to our lives. What you say makes perfect sense to us in a spiritual way. We have always accepted OT site and AUV blog as the absolute truth because we feel that deeply within our hearts.

Thank you again for everything and hope to see you and other travelers soon if that’s what our script is.

Wish you all the very best!

Love, peace and joy!

Traveller/Sara/Adonna,

This sounds like a goodbye, and maybe it is. I truly appreciate your efforts and success at conveying what is complex. I truly appreciate your steadfast honesty and heart felt approach. You have played your part well and survived the slings and arrows, the non-comprehension, and anxieties, angst and questions. You do deserve a beautiful rest.

love,
Lin

“Most people don’t really want the Truth.
They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the Truth.”

All energy in the universe is neutral, timeless and dimensionless. Our creativity and capacity for pattern recognition in the primordial soup is the link between the macrocosm and microcosm, the timeless world of waves and the solid world of things. Observation is an act of creation through limitations in inherited thinking. The moment we thus name or label something, you also negate it to all other possibilities and potential, thus not only creating it but also pinning it. The universe is created in several incomprehensible layers of vibration. Yes indeed, all things will ‘end’ and it is the nature of the limited observable universe that everything is spiraling or cyclic in nature. The world ‘ends’ for individualized aspect of the All and indeed on a collective level too. Right now we are witnessing an acceleration of individual awakening the world over.

As Traveler has gone to great lengths to explain through one of the most misunderstood and least effective means of communication ‘the written word’, certain aspects of reality can never be communicated, but only experienced (even then there are limitations). Imagine trying to describe an orgasm to someone who does not even comprehend what sex is.

I stumbled on this blog only recently and would like to express my sincere and heartfelt gratitude to all that is published here. It has at the very least opened my perceptions to the endless possibilities that exist in the potent state, waiting for us as a species to ascend and explore.

It is clear why you were chosen Sara, in this piece alone, it is crafted so well. Your articulation is superb.

The simple fact remains, and will always lend to the frustration of bother sender and receiver, and that is the subjectivity of the initial transmissions.

I suspect another deciding factor of being singled out is your level of tolerance, I would have banged my head against a wall to a fleshy pulp by now, had I been given the daunting task to relay such a rich and complex message to the masses! Not so much Chinese whispers, more My Mumblings, with a side of extra drool….

Whatever happens from this linear point, we thank you in earnest, and if the outcome is not how we have interpreted or hoped, then we would do well to not shoot the messenger or indeed the originator (slightly outgunned too methinks ;-))

It’s been a hoot hasn’t it…but I do not wish to come back into a society like this ever again!!!

Traveler & All,

Arrival was the first movie I have gone to see in the cinema in probably 14 years. The moment I heard of it, from one of the comments here I felt like I had to see it. So my husband reluctantly (neither one of us likes spending that much money for a movie, it feels like a waste) took me and it was quite the movie indeed.

I love how fluid the movie is even though there are completely different parts of time that are being shown. Makes it a lot more feasible to get your mind around non-linear time and shows just how deeply interconnected everything is, in a small enough way to also get the mind around it easily. Definitely gave me a new perspective. And certainly gives me a better understanding how hard you work to communicate what you see and feel Traveler. I couldn’t even figure how to put much of what I got from the movie into anything to share until you posted this latest post. Thank you very much!

Also, if anyone would like to check out the trailer for another movie that looks pretty incredible called Collateral Beauty, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1tfLWxcEzw&mc_cid=aa6b9f0b2f&mc_eid=ad52272cb8 you absolutely should. It has a star studded cast and while this does not make for a good movie, from the trailer it certainly does for this movie. At least in my opinion.

Love,
Rinda

Hello…..hello…..Adonna??? Are you there? Any update for us. I have not experienced a null point or blink, and have no perception of having shifted to a new or separate timeline.

Just wondering.

Yes, Robert, I am “there” (Midway Station) and “here” simultaneously. We just got back from our weekly shopping trip and I will be working on a new article to fill everyone in on what happened, what I have been experiencing, and what I am being told. For now, it appears that we DID move across the barrier and at least some of the first wave is operating from “there” more than “here,” myself included. Carlos’ description is very close to what I am also experiencing. More to follow when I can put it together enough to share it with the rest of you.

Love,
Sara/Adonna/Traveler
