(includes an explanation on how the mind, intellect and sanskaras work; and a further discussion on the mind, sanskaras and 'slate')
Within each living human being, there is a soul. You are the soul within your corporeal body. You are not the corporeal body. The soul is a point of white living light energy.
The energies of the soul has various functions. Three of the most important functions are the mind, intellect and the sanskaras. The sanskaras is also called the memory bank or the sub-conscious mind. The soul uses the mind, intellect and sanskaras as 3 faculties/servants/ministers .
The mind is the window of the soul. It is where all observations, information, thoughts etc are first placed so that the soul can view it. When we see, hear, speak, smell or touch something, impressions are left on the soul's energies in the mind. Whatever impression is left in the mind, is taken note of by the soul. The intellect, then, takes whatever is in the mind and places it in the memory bank. They are stored in the memory bank.
The mind is also used for the creation of new thoughts, emotions, desires and so on. All these that have been created, in the mind, are also taken by the intellect and sent to the Memory Bank. They are also stored there for future use.
When we want to remember something that has been stored in our memory bank, the intellect will pick it out from the memory bank and place it in the mind for the soul to see. If it is not needed anymore, the intellect places it back in the memory bank.
The mind, intellect and memory bank are all part of the soul. Thus, it is as if we are doing all the actions (as the mind, intellect and sanskaras) when we want to remember something etc.
The subconscious mind or memory bank or sanskaras are where all the information is stored within the soul. 'Sanskaras' can also be taken to mean everything that is in the memory bank, including all that we see, hear, touch, all kinds of information and memories, the desires that have been used, instincts, habits, tendencies, emotions, temperaments, behaviour and personality traits, etc.
The soul uses a new slate for the memories of the new birth-role, by beginning to develop new sanskaras for the new birth-role.
The ancient people, at the beginning of the Copper Age, inscribed the myths on tablets because:
1. the writings will last for a long time, until the End of Cycle
2. the writings are inscribed firmly just as the memories within us are inscribed firmly within the memory bank.
That which was inscribed firmly within the memory bank had emerged to influence us, from the beginning of the Copper Age. In the divine world, since the soul is in the perfect state, memories do not emerge to influence us. But from the beginning of the Copper Age, since we have gone into an imperfect state, strong memories can just emerge to influence us. The memories which we create in the Confluence Age are very strong and powerful. We have to create very strong desires and aims for transformation. So, they emerge to influence us from the beginning of the Copper Age. But these memories are not bad. They are good because they are for spirituality and virtuous living. These memories will influence us for our own benefit until the End of the Cycle, so that we are influenced to walk on the spiritual path and to behave in a virtuous manner. Thus, they are good. Only strong bad memories (created during accidents etc), will disturb us badly when they emerge.

(includes a discussion on how the intellect works; on using the intellect to get information from outside the soul; and on the subtle communication abilities)
The intellect takes whatever is in the mind and places it in the memory bank. The intellect also takes what is in the Memory Bank and places it in the mind, so that we (the souls) will remember that which has been placed in our mind.
The intellect is also used to make judgements, to discriminate, to reason, to understand and to make decisions based on observations and facts retained in the memory bank or from outside. For example, as we are contemplating on all relevant facts so as to make a decision, the intellect is used to pick out all those relevant facts from within our memory bank and to place them in the mind. And as they are placed in the mind, we use the intellect to decide as to which among the relevant facts, that are in the mind, should be given more importance etc so as to make a decision.
When our intellect is in a divine state, the decisions, which we take, will be the best because of the perfect state of the intellect. It is when we lose our divine state, and go into the weak ordinary state, that we will find it very difficult to use the intellect well so as to make the best decision. So, we can take sometime to come to a good decision. We can also become confused because we are unable to make a good decision.
In the Kaliyug world, we learn to use the brain and the vices, well, so as to make decisions which seem intelligently taken. We keep doing something repeatedly so as to become good at making decisions in the relevant field. We try to develop our brains so that we can perform better. We also learn to use the vices well, so that our interest is protected. In other words, we become dependent on the 'corporeal' and on the vices.
When we are trying to make a decision, and we have an intellect which has the ability to get information from outside, our intellect can also get information from outside us so as to help us make a decision. We can also intentionally send the intellect outside the corporeal body to get the information which we need. When the intellect goes to get information, from outside us, the soul is not leaving the corporeal body. If the soul leaves the corporeal body, we die. We can only send some of our energies, out, to get the information for us. This is why, sometimes, some people are able to make themselves appear in more than one place. Only a little of their energies are sent out for each of those experiences. The soul is still in the corporeal body. Sometimes, these out-of-body experiences happen because the soul has lost control over itself. At other times, it happens because the soul is intentionally doing it.
When the intellect goes outside the corporeal body, so as to get information, it can also feel like as if we are leaving the corporeal body to get the information. Actually, we are not leaving the corporeal body. Only the energies of the intellect are sent out. It can feel like as if we are leaving the corporeal body because the energies of the mind, intellect and sanskaras are all part of us (the soul). It is our energies.
When the intellect gets the information, from outside the corporeal body, the intellect puts it in our mind. We, the souls, will then be able to view the information that is in the mind.
The intellect can also connect us to someone else so that we can know of what they are thinking, feeling etc. Impressions of what is seen or felt by the intellect (within the mind of others) is left in our mind. So, we can know of what the other person is thinking, feeling etc.
At the End of the Confluence Age and in the first half Cycle, our intellect does not have to 'seek' to know of what is in the mind of the others. The powerful state, of the soul, will enable us to have the ability where we will subtly know of what the others want from us etc. It will be as if our mind and intellect has subtly opened out to each other, so that we can easily communicate subtly. This subtle communication is similar to the communication which we have with God in the Confluence Age because God has opened Himself out to the Confluence Aged souls. This is why we can experience God's Company, Vibrations etc. But God's Company will purify us because of His powerful state. Human souls do not have the ability to purify other souls. Human souls can only interact with each other, subtly, without the purification process. Once our minds are opened out to others, everyone will know of what is in our minds. This kind of situation is only ideal for the first half Cycle because the deities (human beings of the first half Cycle) will not have any secrets to hide. In the ordinary world (in the second half Cycle), there are a lot of things which we would want to hide because of the existence of the vices, sins etc. So, this situation (of being able to communicate subtly) will stop at the beginning of the Copper Age.

(includes a discussion about the intellect being the third eye and about the Third Eye on Shanker 's forehead)
When our intellect goes outside our corporeal bodies, to get information, the intellect is like our subtle third eye because it helps us to see what is in the mind of the other, etc. But this is not what was meant by the Third Eye of Shanker. The Third Eye of Shanker refers to the third eye of the Confluence Aged souls.
In the Hindu myths, the opening of the third eye of the Hindu god Shanker refers to the opening of the third eye of the Confluence Aged souls. This Confluence Aged third eye is opened when we first receive the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge so as to take our Confluence Aged spiritual birth.
The opening of the Confluence Aged third eye links us to God for world transformation through self transformation. Since it is for world transformation, it has been associated to destruction of the old world and the creation of the new world, in the Hindu myths. Since the role of Parvati is involved for the creation of the new world, the Copper Aged Reptilians had got a very creative myth created involving Shiva and Parvati; where Shiva got the world destroyed through his Third Eye and Parvati got Shiva to re-create a new one in it's place. More on the Third Eye of Shanker can be found at :
Part 44 - Aliens, UFOs and Parallel Universes - Parvati & Shiva (3 - Moon on Shiva's Head, Third Eye)
Part 45 - Aliens, UFOs and Parallel Universes - Parvati & Shiva (4 - Moon, Ganga, New World)
When we receive the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge, we will instantly have the ability to link ourselves to God. Acquiring this ability to link ourselves to God is opening our Third Eye. Since the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge and the intellect is used to open one's third eye, both (the 'divine intellect' and the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge) are referred to as the 3rd Eye. The Third Eye enables us to know of the past, present and future based on the Truth.
The intellect is used as a 'Third Eye' when we churn the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge. Once our Third Eye has been opened, we have to keep using it so that it does not close again. More on the third eye can be found at:

(includes a discussion on churning; about using the intellect to get information from God and from deep within us; on linking ourselves to God)
Churning on the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge will automatically link us to God because God enabled this to happen to all the Deity Souls, when they are in the Confluence Age. Thus, our intellect will help us to:
1. keep God's Company, while we are linked to God through our intellect, and
2. understand the truth,
When we churn the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge, we are actually contemplating on it, while accepting and believing it to be true. When one accepts it, one's intellect will act upon it. So, the intellect will link us to God. As a result, the intellect becomes divine and :
1. we, the souls, go into the soul-conscious stage and get Purified,
2. God gives us spiritual experiences,
3. God gives us an understanding of the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge, which we wish to understand,
4. God uses us as instruments for the Confluence Aged service,
5. God gives us information, help, guidance etc.
The minute our intellect touches God's energies, it instantly get energised so as to transforms into it's divine state. It is then referred to as the 'divine intellect'.
When we churn on the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge, it is as if the soul is instructing the intellect to help us understand the knowledge. The intellect thus helps us to understand it through linking us to God.
God has enabled all Deity Souls who come into the Confluence Age to get a link through using the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge. So, listening to it, contemplating on it, etc will all link us to God. And the intellect is used to link us to God. The mind, intellect and sanskaras will act based on our instructions and as instructed by God.
As we keep churning the knowledge, the intellect will keep linking us to God. And we will keep getting a better understanding of what we are churning upon, etc. This understanding is got through:
1. the knowledge that is there within God,
2. the knowledge that is there deep within us, the souls.
God also has the 3 faculties of Mind, Intellect and Sanskaras. When we link ourselves to God, our intellect gets linked to God's intellect; our mind gets linked to God's Mind. And our memory bank gets linked to God's Memory Bank. So, we will know of what is in God's Mind. We will also have access to all the knowledge which is in God's Memory Bank.
Deity Souls also have this Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge deep within them. We (the souls) hear it in the Confluence Age of every Cycle. And we have churned on it during every Cycle. So, the knowledge and understanding is there deep within us. Thus, when we churn on this godly knowledge, the intellect can also emerge the information which is there deep within us. When we churn on this godly knowledge, our intellect becomes divine because it is linked to God. Thus, it will know how to get the information that is already there deep within us.
When the intellect plunges deep into the soul, the divine energies that exists there are brought into an emerged state and we will be experiencing that divine state again. The divine energies and memories there include the experiences of what we had done earlier, in the previous Confluence Ages of the previous Cycles. Our intellect can also emerge our experiences of the present Confluence Age. The experiences of the present Confluence Age are not that deep down because they are recent experiences.
When we have an experience, we should keep remembering it. When we remember it, we can experience the beautiful experience again or we can have a different experience. The Confluence Aged experiences are divine in nature. Thus, when the intellect gets the Confluence Aged memory from the Memory Bank, the intellect touches the energies of the experience. This gets the intellect to link us to God and to transform into the divine state. So, automatically, we are linked to God again. Thus, we can have the same experience again or have a different spiritual experience or have a greater understanding of the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge. Since we want to remember the earlier experience, it is as if we are instructing our intellect to link us to God again, as it did when we had the previous experience. So the intellect links us to God again.
In the Confluence Age, when we want to link ourselves to God or when we want to communicate with God, the intellect flies up to connect us to God. When our intellect flies towards God, it feels like as if we are flying towards God because the intellect consists of the energies of the soul (us). Energies can only fly; and since the intellect consists of our energies, it is as if we are flying. Having flown to God, the intellect acts like our telephone connection to allow us to know of what God has said. Impressions of whatever God has said to us is left in our mind through this connection. And we, the souls, will be able to see it in our mind. But it will seem like as if God is speaking it to us because we are 2 different souls communicating with each other. God is not us, the human souls. He is another soul, the Supreme Soul. What He says leaves an impression in our mind, so that we will be able to hear God as He speaks. We hear it instantly, as God speaks, because the mind, intellect and sanskaras work instantaneously to let us know of what God is saying.
In the Confluence Age, we actually use our mind to initiate our link to God. To link oneself to God, one has to create the thought in one's mind that one wants to link oneself to God. One has to make sure that one's desire to do this is strong. And one has to instruct oneself to link oneself to God. One's intellect will act upon this command to link oneself to God.
