we are both autodidacts
but my exposure is greater
I'm sure your exposure is much greater than mine, because I don't consider myself an autodidact at all, if you're using the dictionary definition of a "self-taught person who didn't learns from teachers". My root knowledge about the nature of spiritual reality is based on past-life and pre-life memories which means it wasn't learned from any outside source at all. And much of the rest of my knowledge in this area I've learned through channeling, with my Spirit Guides playing the role of teachers.
