John and Valerie Barrow travelled to France during 2015 and finished their travels with a visit to the United Kingdom. On this journey, there was closure for records or signatures of past events associated with the Crusades, Queen Eleanor, King Richard I (the Lionheart) and the Knights Templar, and importantly, the energies associated with the Crusades.
John Barrow has concluded a conversation with Cosmic Sai Baba on the Whispering Knights and certain energies associated, and the unfolding of Ascension and what the higher energies of the 5th and 6th Dimensions will feel like – as John and Valerie were given a ‘taste’ of what life would be like. John Barrow now moves on to another subject, that of bi-location and virtual reality, the capacity of humans to experience being in two different places at once.
An Adventure in Virtual Reality
John Barrow: Just one more question, Baba. We saw a man from Miami by name of Robert in a resturant yesterday. He saw the ring on my finger and made a comment that he had seen me in another place at another time. This was not so, at least, in my recall. Can you tell me what’s going on?
Cosmic Sai Baba: We felt this man needed a prompt, and your ring was the instrument. This was another coordinated incidence for him. So we created a hologram of you – which can be easily done. Man can do this with the camera – create an image. Now, this gentleman we speak of as Robert, if he had continued to watch you, you would have disappeared. But you didn’t do that, and he assumed you were still in the room. Do you understand?
John Barrow: Aha!
Cosmic Sai Baba: This is an example of what is called Virtual Reality. It is coming about more and more. This is what the modern way of thinking is calling it now. In fact, consciousness is very different from what many are thinking. In fact, there is more coming out now – there are those who are talking about it and saying … this is not the reality.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba has said many times, “This world on Earth! This is not the reality.”
So if you would like to give that more consideration, and think about or discuss, or even read about – the knowledge that the quantum physicists have – and other ways of creating vitual reality. It is no different from what we as starpeople already do – I hope this gives you some answers.
Each element that Cosmic Sai Baba refers to in this very short overview may be viewed on the video on this page. The speakers in this video explain all about what Cosmic Sai Baba is speaking of.

“Virtual reality, like lucid dreams, can either wake us up to the nature of reality, or pull us further into delusion,” he says. “How do you use it for the purpose of awakening? How can we use cyberspace as a lab for exploring the mind?” Read more about how New research explores benefits of Buddhist practice in virtual reality

Virtual reality to dominate: Spielberg
SAN DIEGO: at Comic Con 2017, Steven Spielberg has warned that a future dominated by virtual reality is coming ‘whether we like it or not.
The American director was discussing his new movie, Ready Player One, at Comic-Con San Diego. The film is an adaptation of Ernest Cline’s book that depicts a dystopian world where humans take refuge in virtual reality in a world scarred by the effects of global warming. Set in 2044, it entwines 1980s culture and futuristic concepts.
On reading the book, Spielberg said: “It was like the most amazing flash forward and flash back at the same time to a decade I was very involved in, the 1980s, but a flash forward to a future that I think is out there awaiting all of us whether we like it or not.” He described the world it was set in, where fossil fuels are depleted and extreme weather is pummelling the globe, as “so dystopic”. And virtual reality opens up the possibility of being able to do “anything you can possibly imagine”, he said.
He feared being “vilified for some kind of grand act of grand larceny of vanity” because so many of the moments in Cline’s book focused on his own donations to culture. Spielberg had to leave parts of his work out otherwise he felt he would have had to defer directing it.
