   1. IMMORTAL QUESTS


   Early Immortal Quests

Practice Self-Control: Remaining in control is a minimum standard for
   becoming serious about your life, in order to achieve what you
   want to achieve.

Culture Virtue: Most people agree that they are in a better state of
   mind when they avoid the worst kinds of activities. Criminalism
   comes with risk, and risk is bound to confound the path to
   immortality. Imagining animal virtues is another technique, which
   aids grooming.

Avoid Dissipations: Things like masturbation, drinking alcohol, and
   doing drugs dissipate the spirit, and make it less magical. Improve
   the magic in your life, and in the lives of others, by avoiding
   dissipations.

Write a Poem: According to legend, a poem is the only true map to a
   life.

Position: Practice Feng Shui and other techniques to maintain focus on
   who you are.

Exertion: Minimal exercise whenever necessary can improve odds of
   survival.


   Middle Immortal Quests

Invent Something: Even if you cannot get credit for it, becoming a
   world influence is a good way to promote yourself to the powers
   that be. Invention is the way to do this.

Develop a Taste for Water: This may involve enjoying exercise, which
   in turn requires some amount of brain development. If desperate
   for feelings other than pain, take a longevity supplement.

Negation: The third of the Four Substances of alchemical fame, this is
   the ability to physically or spiritually negate bad influences.

Ambition: The fourth of the Four Substances of the alchemists, this
   simply involves the ability to remember one’s own youthful
   ambition to be young, in crystal clarity.


Advanced Immortal Quests

Time Travel:  Important intellectual achievements and differences
   between you and others may grant you the ability to time-travel,
   as recorded in Vol. 15 (The Dimensional Time Travel Toolkit).
   Although there may be no way to genuinely cheat, since travel can
   mean losing touch with one’s former universe, time traveling may
   be an important way to loosen the flux preventing you from
   becoming immortal.

Live In Sidereal Time: Having endurance to live for longer times in the
   same period of chronological time can lead to access to the
   sidereal realm----a realm, so to speak, beyond time. This realm
   has been described variously as ‘the realm of true forms’, the
   adastral plane, and the domain of true knowledge. As long as you
   aren’t really dreaming, this place is where you really go someplace
   as an immortal.


2. MAGICAL AND SYMBOLIC QUESTS

Learn Spiritual Alchemy: Ascending through alchemical levels may be
   shown by success in various activities, and acquisitions of magical
   powers or spiritual experiences. It is usually considered to be
   connected with the culturing of the soul, and pursuit of
   immortality.

Transmagensis: If you live long enough, declare yourself a mage!


   3. PHENOMENOLOGICAL QUESTS

Phenomenal Quests tend to be equally-rated in value, but ranked in
   order of difficulty.

How to Become a Rock: (1) Keep rocks for company, (2) Practice
   myopia until your eyes feel like your skin, (3) Practice feeling
   hard, (4) Let the world become soft, (5) Continue to feel soft as
   long as your brain feels hard. (6) Allow time to pass, exaggerating
   the influence of wind and water as erosion. (7) When something
   smashes you, become human again. (8) Remember how it was to
   be a rock.

How to Become a Straw: (1) Be tricky. (2) Know where to be. (3) Know
   who you are. (4) ‘You are a straw.’ (5) You are doing something.
   (6) You love someone. (7) Someone is sucking. (8) They are
   sucking because you are a straw.

How to Become a Dancer: (1) Care for your everyday needs, (2) Take
   moments to rest, (3) Become excited, (4) Dance, (5) Take lessons
   in dancing, (6) Do a performance, (7) Practice dancing, (8) Live
   the life of a dancer.

How to Become a Philosopher: (1) Keep the best principles in mind. (2)
   Muse on what it is to be a rock, or a dancer, etc. (3) Develop
   general theories about reality. (4) Consider what life really IS,
   what is right, beautiful, or true. (5) Write about it. (6) Publish
   books and papers. (7) Become educated at a university. (8) Even if
   it just means becoming someone to imitate, where possible, teach
   what you know.

How to Become a Phenomenologist: (1) Do something besides
   philosophy. (2) Observe what it means. (3) Theorize about what it
   is for that-thing-to-be-that-thing. (4) Describe what you observe as-
   phenomena, even if it is only poetry and not philosophy. (5) Study
   philosophy and phenomenology. (6) Write in a phenomenological
   way. (7) Develop major theories of phenomenology. (8) Practice
   the attitude of a phenomenologist.




           4. TIME TRAVEL QUESTS

(Whatever you do, don’t kill your grandfather!)

   Beginner Time-Travel Quests

Study Philosophy and Metaphysics: This will give you an edge in your
   knowledge of time, destroying others’ ability to second-guess your
   time-travel attempts.

Know the Basics of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics: These are
   useful tools in the semantics of time-travel. Concepts like
   ‘dancing’ and ‘improbability drive’ also add something.

Practice Un-Attachment: This can involve such elaborate things as not
   doing anything noteworthy for years at a time, in order to free up
   time to travel back to, without sacrificing any noteworthy
   accomplishments. This also allows you to focus your mind on
   time-travel.


   Intermediate Time-Travel Quests

Find a Tentative, Rational Reason to Believe You Time-Traveled: This
   may be harder than you think, when you really think about it.
   Remember, proving it to yourself is easier than proving it to
   someone else. The object of this quest is to prove it without a
   doubt for yourself.

Have a Definite Time-Travel Experience: Try traveling a short distance
   after any amount of effort. It requires less knowledge or technical
   expertise than long-distance travel, but does require a lot of
   authority. ‘Definite’ means that you know you were in the future
   or the noticeable past, not that it felt like anything.

Return to the Same Location at an Earlier Time: There is an odd sense
   of nostalgia when re-living the past.

Demonstrate Psychic Knowledge in the Past: It can be anything. You
   may find it is easier to focus on something unimportant.



   Advanced Time-Travel Quests

Attend a Time-Traveler’s Convention After Time-Traveling. Some of
   these were held in Boston in the early 2000’s.

Change History for the Better: Exerting subtle influence on history can
   be a powerful tool. But make sure it is for the good. For example,
   I feel I contributed to the election of Barack Obama by saying
   “what about a president for the future? How about a black
   president?”. This statement was especially powerful because I had
   already lived in the future.

Prove You Time-Traveled: This may involve advanced activities like
   pre-meditated time-travel, or carrying an object while time-
   traveling, or time traveling long enough to age more than
   ordinary, or traveling far enough back that your mother expects
   you to be much younger.

   How To Build a 100-Dimensional Universe

   NOTE: I cannot answer in mathematical terms, but I can venture
   a physical and philosophical answer. The fifth dimension involves
   extension into and beyond 4-d. Thus, it involves not just the
   possibility, but the guarantee of two time dimensions. A general
   way to extend dimensions is to think first of possibility, and then
   in the next dimension as reality.

   fundamental types of matter, and always has two concepts of

   three concepts of matter, and always has two concepts of
   time, and always has some other thing.

It is possible to conceive of other typological systems, however, in         
which these typological dimensions are not reached, or in which one
characteristic, such as material complexity, time complexity, or sheer
complexity develops quickly while other characteristics do not. My
conclusion for the fifth dimension based on the study of characteristic
dimensions is that it objectively involves the most advanced
conceivable concept of five properties (one for each dimension): (1)
nature, (2) materials, (3) structure, (4) properties / culture, and (5)
evolution. These are sort of the Qubits of 5-d space. And it can be
added that 5-d may be a different spatial or metaphysical dimension,
with the assumption that simpler experiences are analogous to Flatland,
and that more advanced experiences can be approximated.
