As the day progressed, amnesia began to erode the greatly heightened level of understanding achieved during the P.E. The loss of insight from conscious memory over the next several days seemed to follow an exponential decay curve. Within 48 hours, well over 90% of the new information seemed to be lost from conscious memory. The experience was so undeniably strong, however, that I was left with the knowledge that the insights were still there, hidden somewhere in unconscious memory, and I was very strongly motivated to attempt to retrieve them.
A fraction of the insight has been regained through many hours of meditation and study. Even though I gained many new concepts and a more full and complete understanding of reality during the P.E., I have since found that many of the thoughts had not only been brought forth by other individuals previously, but that many had also been scientifically established by mind-brain researchers. This has provided whatever proof I needed to convince myself that P.E. is a valid way of achieving breakthroughs in scientific understanding. What others had been struggling to verify experimentally for years, I came across during one sudden intuitive leap. Not all of the concepts put forth within the Integrated Theory of Intelligence have yet been validated through scientific research. However, knowing that many already have been has increased my confidence that eventually others will be also.
One question that I am trying to satisfactorily answer is: Where in space is the information stored that my mind has access to during an ordinary state of consciousness, and where in space is the additional information stored that my mind becomes privy to during P.E.? Is the information stored in space all around me, so that an expanded state of supraconsciousness allows me to integrate, canvas or observe a larger share of it? Does the total amount of stored information that I have access to during P.E. entirely belong to me, or is some of it shared with others at a colonial hierarchy level? Although the new insights seem to build upon information already stored within my conscious and unconscious mind, I cannot rule out the possibility that the new information was being retrieved from an external source. The most probable explanation would seem to be that there is information stored within a universal holographic system, that it is potentially available to anyone, and that the higher one's level of consciousness, the more information that becomes available to consciousness for processing.
This concept might be illustrated by evaluating a photographic image stored on a holographic plate. If the whole plate is utilized in the restoration of the holographic image, it will be relatively high in resolution and detail. If, however, the plate is broken into multiple pieces of varying size, any reconstructed image will have less resolution and detail, dependent upon the size of the broken fragment that is used in the reconstruction process. All images will show the same structures, but the detail and resolution will vary greatly. If our minds operate on this principle, one might speculate that the greater the level of consciousness being experienced, the larger the volume of the universal hologram being processed by the mind per unit of time.
