A couple more conversations with Bob Monroe held a few years after he left the body for the final time. Again, these referred to specific cryptic inscriptions he left when signing people’s books.

Sharon Hurtley-Durand (via email):
A friend of mine, Jena, got this one from Bob years ago:
6S + N (3C + 5) = MVL!
4T + P
Would Bob care to elaborate? She could never figure it out.
Don’t like to put the work on you, but, my attempt to link to Bob doesn’t seem to be producing much. Course, it’s probably because I haven’t figured out how to turn up the volume on my receiver. Some day, I hope.
F: (9:30 p.m.) Bob, no rest for the weary – or is it, for the wicked? Here is another of your past sins, back to haunt you. Can you meet the request I have received to crack another of your formulas?
RAM: Well, we can try, as before. That isn’t the same thing as setting up shop to answer every letter I ever left unanswered.
F: I understand and I sympathize. Here is the cryptic formula.
6S + N (3C + 5) = MVL!
4T + P
RAM: Let me recommend to any who want to decode these themselves that they begin as I do with the result. That will canalize (I hate the word channel ) your thinking through the rest. Or, not “thinking through” at all; more like moving into Focus 12, sitting there with the formula as a question, term by term, and responding. You will find that much more valuable than getting someone to answer it for you.
MVL! Multi-Valent Life!
6S six senses, plus
N your nature
(3C+5) three consciousnesses plus five
4T four variants of time, plus
That is, a Multi-Valent Life (exclamation point, for emphasis and enthusiasm) is the result of your balancing your six senses plus three consciousnesses plus five, which is your nature plus your presence in the moment.
F: I’m sorry, but that isn’t nearly clear to me.
RAM: No. it is a sort of test for you as well, this time, for you are putting out what looks to you to be self-contradictory nonsense – but still you are doing it. Good work.
Here is the explanation, a little closer to English.
A Multi-Valent Life – that is, a life with more than one “stop,” a life of flexibility, variability, responsiveness, altering with circumstances internal and external. This is highly conducive to the breath of life that is inspiration, joy. Hence the exclamation point – it is highly to be desired, and it is, itself, enthusiasm, as opposed to the frozen rigidity of self-defense or overcontrol.
F: Hmm. You were not unfamiliar with over-control yourself, if I read you right.
RAM: Well, nobody is perfect. Not much point in being perfect if you are going into a compressed learning environment.
6S is the first term that worried you. Six senses? Well, why not? Intuition, prophetic knowledge, is commonly called a sixth sense, isn’t it? So – five senses and your sixth sense. Using it all, in other words.
Now, N(3C + 5). Here I didn’t dare even spell out the five for fear of meeting enough resistance to end matters, so we slid by it.
N is your nature, that is, your total nature, not merely the nature of the ego self in TSI that you often identify with. Taking your larger nature to include other parts of yourself outside TSI, parts you may or may not experience on a regular basis, you get 3C + 5. Three consciousnesses: conscious, unconscious, and what we might call super conscious not as psychology defines it, but meaning the consciousness of your total self, far beyond ego consciousness.
And the five that is added to these three forms of consciousness (if it is permissible to refer to the unconscious as a mode of consciousness) ? This time, the five senses – as you intuited but couldn’t figure out – as a model of the locus of that individual ego consciousness; the “window” into TSI that it represents.
So you ask, how is it permissible or even sensible to add six senses and five of them again? That isn’t exactly what we are doing.
6S means your standard way of perceiving the world from an ego consciousness point of view. N(3C+5) means your total nature using your senses as their window on the bit of world your ego-self experiences and shapes. see the difference, and why I supply both?
Finally, all of that numerator is conditioned (divided, so to speak) by 4T + P, four variants of time plus the degree of presence you bring to your life at any given moment.
F: The four variants? I’ve tried to imagine what they are and failed, as I expect you wanted me to, for reassurance. So –?
RAM: You don’t commonly think of “the other side” – outside TSI – as having time of any sort, though some thought should make you realize that where there is change there are separate states, and whatever serves to separate them serves as time does in TSI.
Time 1 – T1 – time as experienced in TSI – seemingly non-elastic, one-way and inescapable.
T2 – what you might call psychological time, the factor that compresses pleasurable events and stretches staff meetings interminably.
T3 – whatever you care to call the separating medium on “the other side.” Highly elastic, multi-dimensional, and more a matrix like space than a vector like T1.
Finally, T4, the equivalent of T2 on “the other side” – for a moment’s thought will show you that if there is an “external” – that is, group – separator providing some of the functions of time, there will be an “internal” – that is, relative to whatever that “individual” relates to – as well.
All these variants of time condition your psyche; hence, your life.
F: Wow. Well, if nothing else you did come up with a plausible 4T scheme, and I admit I couldn’t have done it. Let’s see what response this meets. And again, thanks.
Monday 4/3/06 11:50 a.m.
F: Now have another formula for you if you’re up to it – though Carol did seem to indicate that she would work on it herself.
SCC= T + T2 – 5
I reversed it, putting product first, to match your method.
RAM: All right. Remember, no necessary consistency between formulas. So T2 here doesn’t have to have any relationship at all to T2 in another formula – though it might. It is strictly my own method of shorthand code.
Super-Conscious Consciousness = Time in TSI plus time in “the other side” minus the influence of the five senses, within the context of (divided by) your perspective, which is formed of your values plus the three parts of your human being, your ego self – which are, depending on how you want to see it, reptile, mammal, human brains, or, body-spirit, ego-spirit, trans-personal-spirit.
F: I’m not sure that makes sense, which means I’m not sure how good the transmission-belt at the moment.
RAM: Well, try it out on her, and if there are parts that are wrong, she will feel the difference; they won’t feel right – for she was part of that minute, that event.
[interruption, but maybe this was all anyway]
