yes very good, its like infinite finites spirals within spirals within the fractal of this creation, as it is as a reflection
also in terms of ones reality within a collective reality that also exists at the same time with diferent parallel realities. each one is a diferent experience but most of those are all based upon the same programing, same topic, subject, fundaments wich you talked about like, the "imprisonment", "in..prison capture..moment" - the Ilusion >< in one's body - the "imtrapment", "in..trap..moment". where consciouscious of it or not.
So the narrative as "above so bellow" is like a reflection of a spiral that spirals in (3d form) to the atom level "so bellow", AND, as Above spirals out to the google level, to infinity. for example.
Then on this matter to reflect this into the material experience, and as you point it out, prison systems that exists within a whole system, say political, financial, spirituality, that exists within a planet prison that exists within a cosmic opressive system and so on. Very much so geometrically speaking is a Toroidal structure with its hemispheres spinning 360 degrees becoming aware that is really spinning.
In other words Souls are like electrons that flow in alignement with the original frequency, wich gives power to the structure itself but experiences polarity, the hemispheres.
So in terms of criteria for me and from my shamanic knowledge or point of view (if i can speak that way), is to get back to the original frequency of Soul, trueself, from a soul perspective. in other words vibrating on a higher form.
We've been experience this more and more nowadays with the energies of the Sun shifting, our awareness is becoming higher, we are starting to remember things that we can only access in a higher frequency, because they are resonant with that particular vibration and experiencing realities that questions reality itself.
The process of awareness, the getting back into alignment, but with that also comes more polarity, as a direct result of more consciousness, as a reflection in matter terms, is like the opressive system playing in a micro level and macro level, through the manipulation of programming in collective reality but also from a higher level through the fractal / matriz plane / high energy plane the so called negative influences from 2nd consciousness, or higher self energy domain.
So if i could describe in one word it would be - Illusion. the several layers of illusion, and the criteria is the break from those illusions from 1st consciousness but also 2nd consciousness.
In terms of "Maybe this is not about location", i think Courtney and Harvey talked about this, it's a bigger picture, wich also reminds me (and to add to the soul question with this) it reminds me also one of the key components of all of this that we learn in ancient shamanic knowledge, "what it means Humanness, what it means the human body? what it means to be a human" this is the focused of shamanic practices. See these indigenous people knew that humanness has a profound correlation in the galaxy, the bigger picture, in material structure Human body, personality/Ego/Avatar structure Human, energy level Humanness.
Also In terms of Earth not being the only prison planet, i thing it was in the Escape remote viewing project that the viewers describe that there are several planets through out the galaxy with the same opressive system.
Sorry got carried away, very good.
