The “higher” you go mentally, vibrationally, you actually go deeper. Dimensional planes of existence are not arranged in hierarchical “heights” in the physical sense, they exist co-dependently and they parallel each other by way of vibrational degree.
Just as each body (we have several bodies: physical, ethereal, astral, mental, etc.) that’s affixed to the physical human anatomy is its own organism with its anatomical and atomic structures, so too are the dimensional planes of existence within this infinite manifold Omniverse which contains all universes (varying realms, realities, or dimensions). Every manifestation of energy is toroidal to some degree, even consciousness itself due to its reflective modality of being the producer and the product of its content simultaneously. Therefore, when one dreams of being in different worlds or mysterious and bizarre unfamiliar places, the one has not ventured to some offshoot realm that is apart from his or her own universe, the one has simply delve into a deeper level of oneself.
When you dream, or even when you astral project or trip on some psychedelic drug, the brain’s neurochemistry is being altered into “higher” states which are essentially faster frequencies that induce deeper dissociation from the physical body, which ultimately inverts conscious awareness into itself to explore its myriad of infinite dimensions and aspects of its experiential “self.” We can liken this process to that of a ceiling fan. When the ceiling fan is turned on to its lowest setting, “slow,” you will be able to see the blades spin gently. However, when the fan is turned on to a higher setting it becomes harder to see the blades one by one, and as the setting is increased to its highest setting, “fast,” you won’t see the blades at all, for they become invisible.
Consequently, our conscious minds’ functionality within waking life acts the same way. The vibrational frequency of the experience of our “normal” waking life is like the ceiling fan set on “slow,” everything vibrates slower, which makes things appear to be dense or “solid;” but, when we dream or have our consciousness altered (accelerated) the vibrational frequency of our experience becomes like the ceiling fan set on “fast,” which in turn makes things appear to be more sparse and less “solid,” for everything is more malleable and volatile.
