Explaining the Unexplainable: An Imaginative Look at Aliens, the Bible, Magic and Everything In-Between

The mysteries of reality are a puzzle

 

Imagine a world where the expectation of your soul’s redemption is fact; and another world, side-by-side, where you exist as a phantom without soul or spirit.  Speculate about what life would be like if your five senses were augmented by fifteen others.  What would it mean if UFO sightings were directly related to the Bible and Christianity?  Consider the possibility that magic is real and can be accessed for the good of mankind.  Reflect on the idea that vampires and dragons have existed.      

I have in my possession journals written by a close friend several years ago.  My friend was a dreamer and, in his own way, a philosopher.  He asked many questions and theorized what the answers might be.  He looked into the heavens and asked about both God and the universe.  He saw the universe as a puzzle and tried to make all the pieces fit.  In doing so, he attempted to understand and embrace fantastic possibilities—simply because he wished for everything to be possible.

The thoughts recorded in his journals were not new to me, although the depth of thought was somewhat a surprise.  We had theoretical discussions for decades, usually simultaneously mixed with my incessant basketball chatter.  The descriptions and explanations you are about to read are mine (offered at a fraction of the complexity of his original work), but the thoughts were his.

This article represents beliefs, theories and flights of imagination—nothing more. For the sake of brevity, I will not preface each statement with “he believed…” or “he theorized…”  I will simply state speculations in the same manner one would relay facts.

Putting the pieces of the puzzle together


Understanding Human Potential

Human potential evinces itself in the use of many more than the five senses men are credited with possessing. Some are likely unused while others remain accessible but unrecognized for what they are. Luck, coincidences and peak performances are possibly the utilization of “unacknowledged” senses. Children have the ability to access these senses, explaining why young people sometimes appear aware of ghosts or other paranormal phenomena. Extra senses might explain a child’s ability to learn very quickly. Unfortunately, as children are taught what the world is and is not (and the explanation invariably includes only five senses), the ability to use these gifts recede.

(Have you ever thought you saw a ghost? You might have, but there might be another explanation. There may be far more inhabitants of the planet Earth than we realize. A separate lineage of humans or another species perhaps live side-by-side with mankind, invisible because our five senses are different and incompatible with those used by the other species. They would certainly live differently or mankind would notice a competition for natural resources, but there is no reason Earth could not offer a wealth of resources undetected by our known senses. Tapping into unutilized senses might cause these creatures to be detected.)


Magic as a Force

Magic is an energy that can be harnessed, perhaps also by the use of mankind’s “extra” senses. “Power spots” on Earth exist where magic is easily accessible—likely places of historically unusual occurrences. Stonehenge, the Pyramids in Egypt, the Bermuda Triangle, Israel and perhaps Salem, Massachusetts all have “power spot” potential. The ability to utilize magic might also be interpreted as performing miracles.


Man Possesses a Soul

Man has an immortal soul (referred to as being “ensouled”). Animals possibly possess a “spirit” but not a soul, and the spirit is capable of being reincarnated into a higher life form. Mythological creatures exist and are/were ensouled, as well; vampires, dragons and centaurs are likely to possess souls. Not all humans have souls, however—at least not in this reality.


Alternate Realities

An infinite number of alternate realities are apt to exist. The choices we make in life establish our reality, and numerous planes of existence represent a multitude of choices available for every man and woman. Everyone has a primary reality in which we live a life closest to our ideal. We are ensouled in this reality.

Alternate realities that come closest to our ideal without reaching it are planes where we exist as beings with a “spirit.” In such a world, we might be happy and successful, but perhaps feel a lacking—a lack of love or an undistinguished career, for example. Humans with a spirit but not a soul are often nurturers, fulfilling supporting roles in the universe of ensouled beings. The decisions which create these realities are not always immutable, and further choices may guide one back to their primary reality and a merging with their ensouled selves. When this happens, we notice paradoxes or inconsistencies in popular beliefs, events are “misremembered,” and things we believed are certainties might be proven untrue.

The tragic figures in life—those that cannot conform or succeed on any terms and appear destined to live their lives as a loser—exist without souls. These beings think and feel and are as real as anyone else, but they do not have souls. In the multitude of realities, each of us inhabit all variations of existence—living in our primary reality as an ensouled being; living multiple realities as beings with a spirit, and still more realities as shadows—persons without soul or substance.

There can be a convergence of decisions affecting a single individual taking place on “power days.” When this occurs, a finite number of life paths are available to choose from. If the convergence is so powerful and all-encompassing that only one life path emerges, it becomes a “pre-destined event,” making specific occurrences inevitable.


Karma

John Lennon wrote a song about instant karma, and the premise is logical. It is possible to describe karma as an alternate reality—i.e., the effect of our actions. The concept of moving to a higher spiritual plane (enspirited to ensouled) allows man to work toward a moral life’s path, even in the face of “inevitable” decisions. Existing in multiple realities, man has the opportunity to experience the consequences of all past and present actions simultaneously, erasing karma through a non-linear life progression.


Aliens

If alien races existed, why would they visit Earth? A possibility is found in the roots of Christianity. If God sent His son to Earth, he either sent an aspect of himself to many planets in the universe with intelligent life, or Earth is unique. If God’s presence on Earth has never been duplicated on any other world with sentient beings, Earth becomes the de facto religious and spiritual Mecca of the universe. Alien races might actually see Earth as a shrine, or at worst a tourist trap—beings from other worlds would certainly want to see the planet God personally visited.

Why would God visit Earth and no other inhabited world? Searching for answers again within the boundaries of Christianity, perhaps only humans are ensouled and capable of salvation. If aliens are without souls, the children of aliens mating with humans could theoretically become human enough to be ensouled, and thus another reason to visit Earth suggests itself—for an alien species to gain a soul would suggest at least the possibility of salvation. A second idea: if there are half-human, half-alien beings in the universe, visiting Earth might be viewed a homecoming.


Vampires

The first vampires, werewolves and other half-human creatures are likely the result of interactions between humans and alien races. Humans are transformed into these powerful creatures either through mating with aliens or perhaps being attacked by them. A creature drinking human blood might leave traces of their own DNA in the human body while feasting, altering the human body. Other magical creatures including fairies, nymphs, sprites, gnome, leprechauns or elves likely originated through similar means.


Time Travel

Man will eventually conquer time and space, traveling throughout both ages and galaxies. It is logical to assume man will contact and interact with life forms from other worlds. Time travel might become possible through scientific advancement, or if man were able to more fully understand time as a force of energy. If one were able to utilize all senses fully, a comprehension of time might result, making possible the ability to travel forward or backward. A few individuals may currently be capable of time travel, but do not necessarily visit other eras.

Time travel will allow for the dawning of a new age, clarifying ages-old mysteries. It will allow us to know that hope and answers always exist, and will likely lead to unification of both major world governments and religions. The urge to summon the future and change the past will demonstrate that theoretical time-travel paradoxes exist. Man will discover universal laws that prevent using time as a tool—for example, it might be physically impossible to visit a moment in time and space where one currently exists, and man would be unable to “meet” himself in another era.

Traveling through time and space will be the means to spread the word throughout the universe that God visited Earth. As man moves into the heavens, aspects of his culture will be carried into the cosmos, as well. When the idea that Earth is special spreads, others will come.


Read these words and wonder

Very cool hub Mike. I agreed completely with Understanding Human Potential and Magic as a Force. I like all the rest but at best can only accept the possibility of some of the things mentioned and not the actuality.

I persoanly belive everything has a soul and all souls are part of God, or the supream being, or the Tao or Great

Spirit or what ever you wana call it. you can see some of my thoughts here http://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/understand

Your friend was very deep thinker and his words should be preserved and shared with the rest of the world.

Thank you for the awsome post.

Mike Lickteig 6 years ago from Lawrence KS USA Author

John, thanks for stopping by. My friend was indeed quite a thoughtful man, and this hub reveals only some of his speculations. I agree that it is difficult to see some of this as anything more than possible, but I can easily accept that we might have more than five senses, and their acknowledgement and use would allow us to explore the human potential in new and fascinating ways.

I will definitely check out your hub, and thanks again for stopping by and leaving a comment. Have a great weekend.

"Think of this as a story" - exactly the attitude I took, Mike. I've seen theories like this in novels. There are also authors who do seriously create and believe such theories. Do you remember pgrundy? She recommended me some books by a Patrick Harpur--one, I recall, was 'Daimonic Reality'--that basically try to explain fairies, UFOs, etc. under a broader theory of multiple levels of reality.

I think these theories are intriguing, because the product of an above-average mind, but also entertaining in the way reading Erich von Daniken's books is entertaining. They're just so detached from what one normally expects theories to do. These theories seem less concerned with explaining the world around one as trying to justify a lot of peculiar beliefs (vampires and werewolves, e.g.) that aren't evidently connected to reality at all.

But every time I've tried to have serious discussions (because I do love ideas of every sort) with people who hold such views, I get told my skepticism emits negative energy making it impossible for me to see the evidence or understand the ideas.

Anyway, thanks for sharing. I enjoyed reading your friend's ideas. Rated up!

P.S. Was your friend a Christian? He seemed interested in integrating Christian thought with his more fringe views.


Mike Lickteig profile image

Mike Lickteig 6 years ago from Lawrence KS USA Author

Arthur, thanks for your comments. I was so pleased to see that you got the point of this on all levels. These ideas are indeed similar in feel and scope to the Erich von Daniken school of thought--trying to see if ALL the pieces fit together. The article is not meant to convince anyone of anything (a difficult task anyway, given the 1500 words I used to articulate a number of ideas...).

My friend attended Catholic grade school with me. After being swayed as a teen by the Unitarian Universalists, he investigated many schools of religious belief. He eventually considered himself a Buddhist, but as you note, could never completely seperate himself from the Christian ideas he grew up with and always sought to integrate them into his more personal beliefs.

I do remember pgrundy and will look for 'Daimonic Reality'.

Thanks again for reading.

Mike, our view of the world is all about perception. We are taught from a very young age about what is 'real' and what is not. Reality is just a sort of idea that most people can agree on to make sense of our lives. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there. Who can see the wind?

When my computer was down I found myself drawn to the TV more and was watching the History channel and the had documentaries on this idea. It was quite fascinating and truth is stranger than fiction so who know. Stumbled this one!


Mike Lickteig profile image

Mike Lickteig 6 years ago from Lawrence KS USA Author

Dolores, thanks for reading. You are absolutely correct that our reality is based upon perception, and we agree on a description of the world that is shaped through our shared meaning. I will confess that a part of me certainly wants to believe that everything fits, just as my friend wanted to believe. I never had the mental agility to try to piece things together as he attempted, but I do like some of the ideas. And, I have never been so much the skeptic that I could sit, arms folded across my chest, and refuse to believe in anything I couldn't see with my own two eyes. As you point out so wonderfully, who can see the wind?

Thanks for your most thoughtful insights, I greatly appreciate your input.

Mike Lickteig 6 years ago from Lawrence KS USA Author

Hi Janny! Hope you're doing well. Truth is so much stranger than fiction, and I believe in a greater truth that we have only seen glimpses of so far. The pieces do fit together--perhaps not in the manner my friend believed, but in some way--and I look for the day when we will be able to see how and why.

Thanks for reading and for the stumble, Janny--hope you have a great weekend.

Hi Mike

I just loved getting lost in this hub. I have always believed it is our imagination that creates a great deal of our personality if that makes sense. I love to day dream and continually imagine what if this, or what is that.

Thanks for a unique, well written, thought provoking and very creative hub.

A wonderful way to start my Sunday.

Thank you my friend

I have always thought it was quite egotistical of us to believe that out of this vast, infinite universe we were the only planet with intelligent life.

When we hire interns for my corporate world...guess who we look for...those who still have wide open minds. Knowledge is a good thing...unfortunately knowledge also sometimes tends to retard the creative/learning part of people. They tend to say things like, "but this has how it's always been done" or "but this is how I learned it" And unfortunately it is very hard to un-learn something. It tends to crush the creative and imaginative side of people. And if you need people who can think outside the box, sometimes the less they know the better. Of course if you are looking to hire a brain surgeon, I would recommend finding one who learned everything they could about that particular subject! This is a relative situation kind of thinking.

I, myself, think that the black holes in the universe are a way to travel to different dimensions or times. I think that we can't do it with our current physical bodies, but may be able to do it in a spirit form, because the force of a black hole is to great to endure any other way. But that is just my own thoughts and I have absolutely nothing to back it up with.

Good hub Mike...I love thinking outside the box!


Mike Lickteig profile image

Mike Lickteig 6 years ago from Lawrence KS USA Author

Voice, nice to see you here. I'm glad you had a chance to read this. I understand completely what you are saying about hiring people with open minds and the ability to accept what they are asked to learn. The inability to see new possibilities or ways of doing things is tragically limiting, especially when one is entrenched in a particular point of view.

On a broader scale, I'm not saying everyone should believe everything they are told without question, but I am always amazed at people unwilling to even accept possibilities without demanding proof. Without first dreaming of what might be possible, there would be nothing to seek proof for. (The same folks typically adopt a "prove me wrong" posture for their own belief systems, always ensuring the burden of proof falls to the other person--but I digress...)

I have wondered as well if black holes could be a method to travel to other places, whether it is another time or another dimension. Some folks also believe there are places where vast distances can be cross instantaneously. There are even folks who believe an area in the Pacific Northwest called the 'Oregon Vortex' is such a place.

There are worlds without end in our universe, and infinite possibilities. We have not even taken the first step toward unlocking the secrets of the world around us. Those secrets will begin to be revealed by people willing to dream.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you had a great weekend.

I had a fabulous weekend...I did nothing but lay in the pool for 3 days...I'm beige instead of stark white. No traffic headaches, no crowds to deal with, just 3 blissful days of peace and rest. Hope your weekend was just as fabulous!

But as to the current theme:

I always wonder about people who can't seem to see beyond a finite world. Where do they think we would be if that was the case with everyone...still living without electricity, cars, all the many forms of communications we have now, space exploration, not to mention all the medical wonders that are available. We could even through in velcro and zip lock baggies. In the 1700's and maybe into the 1800's all these things we now take for granted would've been thought of as witch-craft and we would've all been burned at the stake.

Like you said, you should always gather all the information up before believing full hearted in something. But having said that you should also be opened enough to accept the possiblities of something new. No one knows everything...and who knows what wonderous thing will pop up next!

Cheers :)

Hi Voice! Nice to hear you had a good weekend. My Sunday was filled with traveling to cemeteries, but it was a nice day in its own way. It somehow made me feel really connected.

You are absolutely correct, things we take for granted would have been considered magical 200 years ago, and we have only scratched the surface of what is possible. If we don't dream, we don't progress. I worked once for a self-made millionaire completely unwilling to embrace change--after all, the old ways made him rich. Along the way, he stopped taking risks and demanded proof an idea would work before trying. Well, his business has stalled out, and he's left wondering what's wrong. Thankfully I don't work there any longer.

Who knows indeed what will pop up next? For example, we know dogs can hear sounds man cannot. If man could be made to hear a wider range of sounds, would music be transformed? Would any song we now listen to be considered simple? What would it be like?

Frankly, I find it enjoyable to dream of change....

Have a good week.

This is an eye-opening hub. Some ideas I had heard or believed and yet others never occurred to me. Ever since my first child was born I believed children had access to senses that we have lost over time. I would enjoy having the opportunity to read some of your friends journals, have they been published, or are you planning on publishing more of those ideas? How lucky you are to have had access to such a friend! The stories you two share probably keep you noticing things that slip by the average person. Thank you for sharing these ideas here.


Mike Lickteig profile image

Mike Lickteig 6 years ago from Lawrence KS USA Author

Faybe, thanks for reading. I also believe children have access to more than five senses, and that we all could regain their use if only we knew how.

I haven't published any more of my friend's work, but I have been organizing some of his work in the hopes of putting it out there, either in this forum or perhaps through more traditional publishing venues. He was a brilliant man and a very deep thinker, and there is a wealth of good and thoughtful reading in his words.

Thanks again for stopping by, I appreciate it very much.

Hmmm this Hub kind of awakens a yearning to what was, and was destroyed by planned purpose to prevent. Sounds about right. But I don't want to know about vampires-

I know this probably sounds weird, but I told my husband a few weeks back- what if the sky isn't really blue? That we are TOLD its blue- so that is what we perceive?


Mike Lickteig profile image

Mike Lickteig 6 years ago from Lawrence KS USA Author

Dugger, thanks for reading. There is a school of thought that suggests everything we know about the world is merely a description, and that reality is formed by agreement upon the description. If we agree the sky isn't blue, it isn't. We are taught what reality is supposed to be and we conform to the description. I am disinclined to believe that reality is completely based upon perception, but there are those who believe.

Having said that, I consider myself open-minded enough to accept possibilities beyond what we can touch with our fingers. Reading your hubs leads me to believe you are, as well.

Thanks again for reading, and I look forward to reading more of your own writing soon.

Hey, Mike...

I decided to check your hubs because there are things you write about that I like. This hub is an example of things I pondered and cogitated deeply since I was a teen. Now I have my views on those things your friend wrote about. I believe in everything you have written here. From Aliens, to Vampires and DRAGONS(My all time favorites)to parallel universes, magick not magic, alternate realities, immortal Soul and Naturally, The Maker, Creator, The Great Architect, God, whatever name you like best. No matter what we may think our imagination "Has created", they aren´t make believe. The Universal Mind is the storage of ideas we tap into when we create, and if it is there, I do not need scientific proof of it. I consider myself a very spiritual person, but I am very open minded. My inquiries, my pondering go way beyond science. Definitely, possessing a finite mind, limits us outrageously when trying to fathom the infinity. This hub has been truly enjoyable and stimulating. Rated up and awesome!

Warmest hugs and infinite heavenly blessings to you, Brother,

Al

Mike Lickteig 6 years ago from Lawrence KS USA Author

Mystique, thanks for reading. You and I are of like minds--I consider myself very spiritual in nature as well, and I am open-minded to new possibilities. I am also able to accept ideas without the "burden of proof;" I find it impossible to believe that nothing exists beyond our ability to rationalize it. I too enjoy trying to fathom the infinite. Call it dreaming or something else, but advancements in any field of study or endeavor would not be possible without those of us willing to imagine there is more out there than what we can touch with our fingers.

Thanks for stopping by, I greatly appreciate your insights! Come back any time.

The many things I have seen make me believe aliens indeed visited earth and probably socialized with humans and it appears were not strangers to humans on earth at one time. When or how long who can say, but the drawings, the signs, work impossible that man did alone, I think so. Maybe not aliens as we think, maybe angelic beings; good, evil or both. I don't believe in magic or vampires, and maybe magic I would accept under another heading. I am sure there have been cannibals. I have felt spiritual beings and don't think there would have been any harm done to me participating but chose not to thinking maybe at an older age I would, but never did. I think spiritual could be mistaken for magical but controlled by opposite forces so it is something someone would want to take caution with, it is definitely a serious undertaking that we have to be prepared for if making a decision to get involved.


Mike Lickteig profile image

Mike Lickteig 6 years ago from Lawrence KS USA Author

Polly, thanks for stopping by and reading. I am prepared to believe we have been visited in the past by other beings, whether we called them gods, angels, or aliens. I agree with you--there seems to be evidence of odd artifacts that don't correspond to their place in man's history.

There are so many possibilities--my friend always sought to tie all the loose ends together. That might be too much to ask, but I think it's easy to see there is more going on than mankind typically bothers to account for on a day-to-day basis. Some of it is good, some bad, but it is there to see if we look.

Thanks so much for reading and offering your insights. As always, it is greatly appreciated.

My husband and I lived in a home the previous owner died in and were sitting on the sofa talking about how it didn't bother us and the coffee table lifted off the floor and went back down. This was not a place of earthquakes, no logical reason at all (nothing shook, sunshiny day) for it happening and yet it still did not frighten us but that is one thing I have witnessed meaning what I have no idea.


Mike Lickteig profile image

Mike Lickteig 6 years ago from Lawrence KS USA Author

Polly, your story certainly would be eerie to experience live, I will say that. It's hard to say what the experience might mean, but it would not surprise me if a ghost was in the house if the previous owner died there. If it was not frightening to you, perhaps the ghost was peaceful--I know nothing about ghosts, but maybe they can project a variety of energies, some of which might even be calming.

Thanks for sharing your experience, that is an amazing occurrence.
