From the atom, through (wo)man, to other spiritual realities...
we have a spectrum or band of frequencies
which differentiates
types of consciousness.

...vegetable consciousness, another type of energy whose frequency range overlaps with, but is not identical to ours.

...Bentov diagrams a series of energy exchange curves which illustrate this overlap among different frequencies of consciousness, different realities. Thus we [as humans] experience something of vegetable consciousness on one side and Angelic consciousness on the other.

Indeed, might it be that memory is our animal-vegetable-mineral heritage, the way in which rocks and stones, plants and trees, birds and fishes, continue in us, and that imagination is our angelic destiny?

The dream and our capacity to symbolize it as culture also allows a resonance between us and these other frequencies of consciousness. When we dream, our dreams become the royal road not to our unconscious, as Freud would have it, but to the consciousness of all creation. Moreover, traffic on this road flows both ways. In dreaming not only are we open to other vibrations of consciousness, to other realities, to the energies of other beings, they are also open to us.

Bentov says that animals we encounter in our dreams indicate "that they do reach into [our] level of consciousness." Notice his language! Bentov is not saying that we dream the animal. Nor is he saying that the animal dreams us. Rather he is saying that dreams are the way in which our consciousness and that of animals interact.

Dreaming is an attunement of different frequencies of consciousness. The dream no more belongs to us than it does to the animal. On the contrary, the dream is the way in which we meet. is still too limiting a notion, insofar as the unconscious remains tied to human psychology, either as the personality repressed, or as the collective repository of the experiences of our species.

The unconscious needs to be re-imagined as the consciousness of animals and plants, of minerals and stars, of Angels and atoms. It needs to be freed from the notion that it describes our ignorance about ourselves, and re-imagined as the epiphany of other kinds of consciousness. It needs to be transformed from a way of tuning out all creation to a way of tuning into it.

The "common uniting element of all creation is consciousness," Bentov says, "and through this bridge all things are in constant contact."

So we need to become comfortable with the thought of the interaction of all creation and even more comfortable with the insight that minerals dream of animals and Angels, just as plants dream of rocks and us.

I died from minerality and became vegetable; and from vegetativeness I died and became animal.
I died from animalism and became [wo]man.
Then why fear disappearance through death?
Next time I shall die
Bringing forth wings and feathers like angels; After that, soaring higher than angels- What you cannot imagine,
I shall be that.
