Those who received such information, who due to their abilities to use changed states of mind got access to such knowledge, suppose that the Records contain joint collective experience of the Humankind which can be compared to Jung’s theory of the collective unconscious and to the history of the Universe creation.
Most supporters of the Records see or perceive them as libraries. For instance, Edgar Cayce said that after leaving his physical body he moved in a pillar of light and arrived to a high hill with a temple on it. “I entered this temple, — he said, and I found there a big room which looked very much like a library. There are books of human lives there, and it seemed that the acts of each one of them were real journals. I just needed to pull out records on the person I was inquiring about”.
