No Facts, No Proof, No Evidence

What happens when we die? Everyone thinks something about it, but no one knows for sure. It is something that will happen to all of us and there is nothing we can do to stop it. People often try to avoid the subject of death, but there is little value in avoiding something that is inevitable and unavoidable. In what way do we benefit from ignoring it? It would be the same as ignoring the fact that our cars will eventually run out of gas. If we ignore that fact, we will strand ourselves on the side of the road somewhere. We should not strand ourselves alongside the road of life having never thought about death.

We rush through our lives believing we are in control of things, but that is mostly illusion. We have a very tiny amount of superficial control, but not much more. People quickly realize how much control they do not have the very instant any kind of natural disaster happens. Whatever you had planned, or thought you were going to do, abruptly changes the instant an earthquake, tornado, hurricane, fire, flood, or any other natural disaster devastates the area where you live. We only think we have control of things, but it's just not true. At any moment the illusion of control can be snatched away from us in dramatic fashion. It does not matter what we have planned or what we think we must get done, if a heart attack happens, plans immediately change and we have no control whatsoever. Suddenly heading toward the Emergency Room is never in anyone's plans, but if the need arises we have very little choice or control concerning any of it. In reality, you have no control over anything at all, you only think you do. Control is an illusion, and that is why it cannot ever actually be attained. It's not real, and what is not real cannot be obtained by anyone.

There is nothing we can do, nobody avoids death. That's just all there is to it. We all die, it is a natural part of life. Then what? What happens after that? Does it all just end and we just blink out into nothingness, or does life continue on in some way? Nobody knows the answer. We have beliefs about what happens after death, but there are absolutely no facts to base those beliefs on. We don't have even a tiny speck of factual proof or evidence, nothing at all, for what is or is not after death. The only thing we know for certain is death will eventually happen to everyone. Beyond that there is only speculation, opinion, and belief. There is no escaping this truth. We do not know what happens after we die.

We also have no facts by which to prove if there is any purpose for our existence, or any point at all to us even being here in the first place. There just are no facts whatsoever concerning any of these things. Everything could just be a pointless never ending chain of meaningless random events eternally happening with no purpose whatsoever, for all we know. We can each believe whatever we choose, but there simply are no facts that prove any of our beliefs to be true or false.

Nothing whatsoever has ever been proven, scientifically or otherwise, concerning what may or may not happen after death occurs. Those who believe official mainstream materialistic science passionately and persuasively argue, with no proof, that physical reality is all there is. They believe there is nothing after death, but they have no proof of this being true. Unaware they are promoting a belief rather than a fact, Materialists arrogantly suggest, as if there were no possibility of error, that when brain death occurs it is simply the end. They honestly and devoutly believe nothing exists beyond brain death and often refuse to admit that what they believe is only an opinion. They insist that they already know all the answers and act as if what they believe is proven fact. Often, they will refuse to even look at any information that challenges their beliefs.

In reality, that refusal to look at contradictory information is direct confirmation that their belief system is fragile. Someone with a strong belief is not afraid to look at anything that contradicts their beliefs. Arrogant Materialists believe they already have all the answers, therefore should not waste their valuable time examining anything. If someone already has all the answers, that is a sure sign they have no idea in the world what they are talking about. Those with all of the answers are who should be dismissed at once. They have completely discredited themselves, even if they don't realize it. This is often the case with overly aggressive and arrogant Materialists. Those who already know all of the answers know none of the answers. It is ridiculous.

People who already know all the answers are the last people we should be listening to if we want the truth. People who already have all the answers have closed minds. Closed minds dismiss, refute, and avoid any information that challenges what they have already decided is all there is to know. People who have strong core beliefs will deny any information that contradicts what they believe. Rigid beliefs cannot change, therefore lock people into a reality that may result in the outright dismissal of provable factual information. Hardcore rigid unchangeable closed minded belief systems often end up producing little more than ignorance. These type of belief systems are dangerous and almost always do more harm than good. We should remain flexible in our beliefs. We should always be able to adjust our comprehension, perceptions, and opinions in light of new information, facts, and knowledge. We should not simply dismiss anything that falls outside our belief system, especially when something is provably factual. This is pure ignorance in its most grotesque form.

Sadly, far too many people suffer and create suffering based upon their rigid belief systems. Those who live in the prison of unchangeable belief systems will invent anything and ignore everything to preserve their views. This is called Cognitive Dissonance. This mental imbalance can be quite uncomfortable for those who experience it. We are in real trouble when we think we already know everything and adhere to rigid belief systems, but this is exactly what materialistic science has created.

According to scientific based beliefs, death is the definitive end to all, and unquestionably so. The argument is made as if they have facts that prove their belief, but they do not. This cannot be overstated. There is not one shred of proof to substantiate such a belief, not one shred. How is this even taken seriously as science? It is not science, it is a belief system that is literally based on nothing. They teach this belief system to children, in the schools that they are forced to attend, without ever admitting that it is only a belief. Why do they never tell the school children that there are no facts by which to substantiate such a belief? Why are they teaching school children a belief system rather than actual science? Real science requires facts, proof, and evidence. It has to be demonstrated in front of other people or it is not science. Science is not the adherence to some unproven belief, that is religion.

Materialists dismiss and laugh at anyone who suggests that we go on after death, based on a belief. What exactly makes one belief correct and another incorrect? If there are no facts, how can one belief be more credible than any other? Besides it being believed to be so, no belief can be any more or less legitimate than any other. The suggestion of anything else is ridiculous nonsense that should not be taken seriously for even one second. Sometimes Materialists go as far as to ridicule people for having their own beliefs. They do so based completely on something they themselves have no evidence or facts for. It is absurd.

Scientists and Materialists have no facts at all about whatever is or is not after death, they only have beliefs. Then, they make fun of opposing beliefs that are no more supported by facts than their own beliefs. It is absolute hypocrisy.

When Materialists make fun of people who have beliefs that are not based on facts, they are making fun of themselves just the same. Unfortunately, due to their extremely limited narrow distorted understanding, misunderstanding rather, of reality, they are pathetically unaware of what they are doing. It is beyond ridiculous. They have beliefs and nothing more, but insist that those who have beliefs and nothing more are delusional. In this way, Materialists absolutely discredit themselves, but rarely realize they have done so. It is quite comical really.

Do not be confused. Humanity has benefited enormously from real science, but what is being promoted today is not real science and is beneficial to no one. Mainstream official materialistic science is not science, it is a belief system. It is a rigid narrow religious belief system that is founded on facts no more than any other religious belief. Modern mainstream science does not qualify or meet the definition of science. However, It does qualify as and meet the definition of religion. It is the religion of Sciencism, Materialism, and Physicalism.

Unfortunately, there is more evidence of this religion being wrong than it being right. Those with rigid indoctrinated scientific belief systems dismiss anyone who says anything like this. They defend their precious belief in science exactly as religious fanatics defend their precious belief in their religion. By definition, there simply is no difference between science and religion. Religion and materialistic science are both accurately described as beliefs based upon assumptions. There is not even a fragment of empirical evidence that proves life ends at death, yet scientist and science minded people insist that there is. Where is the proof that we are just physical bodies and nothing more? Where is this evidence that proves there is nothing beyond death? This evidence can only be found in the beliefs of those who have been brainwashed into accepting this nonsense as reality. At a very deep level, we all know this view of things is incorrect.

This belief is backed by no evidence at all. How can science, if it is real science, promote a belief with not even the slightest bit of proof or evidence for it? This is what passes for science in modern times and it is absurd. It is not science, it is a belief system, a faith based doctrine, just like all the rest of the religions.

Get out of the Cult

The materialistic scientific system mandates that no matter what the rest of the body is doing, when the brain ceases to function, that is death. If the rest of the body is functioning perfectly, but only the brain is dead, that means the largest majority of the body is still alive. To call something dead when it is actually alive is not accurate.

Hydranencephaly is a condition which results in babies being born with much, or even all, of the brain missing. A boy in Louisiana lived to be 12 years old with no brain. Was he dead because he did not have a brain? No, he was alive and there are many others born with the same condition every year. Those born without a brain do not have what we would call "normal" lives by any means, but they are certainly alive. We are not just brains. Perceiving us as such is an insult to the whole of Humanity.

We are consciousness, and that is something that science does not and cannot explain. Materialistic, physical, "five sense reality is all there is" science, is a fraud. It is masquerading as if it has all the answers to everything, including life and death, but it does not even understand consciousness, which is what we actually are. They don't know what it is, how it happens, or where it comes from, yet they are given the authority to brainwash everyone into believing their version is somehow provable fact. It is no such thing.

They have no understanding whatsoever when it comes to this kind of thing. They don't even know what we actually are, yet they are the authorities and their version is the only version accepted. Children cannot complete mandatory educational requirements, indoctrination requirements rather, unless they are able to retain knowledge of this materialistic version of reality. It's a cult really.

If someone does not complete the mandatory education, getting a job or furthering their education is nearly impossible. Without a job, or some other source of income, life can be absolutely miserable. A world has been created around us that requires us all to accept this one extremely narrow view of things. We are forcibly indoctrinated into a singular cult-like belief system that is, in every regard, a religion. How's that for freedom of religion?

If we do not answer every question on every test with the mandatory required beliefs, we cannot be successful in society. This is what has been created, and we stand for it. We cannot have our own beliefs, well we can, but we cannot put our own beliefs as an answer on any test. We must put their beliefs as the answer or we will not do well at all. If we disagree, we either get the answer wrong or we lie. What kind of education is it when students are forced to lie in order to get a good grade? This is what is being done to children in the public government funded education system. How do you think this might spiral out into society? Have a look at the nightly news and you might just get a good idea of the answer.

This system imposes its beliefs onto all of us as if it is provable fact. In reality, it is nothing more than just another unfounded unproven ridiculous theory, and a religion to go along with it. It is beyond insanity, and even more so, that the vast majority of people can't see it for what it is, or simply don't care that it is insane. It is child abuse, that's what it is.

Much stronger words, with many more adjectives, are needed to adequately describe this absurdly ridiculous expression of unbelievable sickness and depravity that we have all been forced into. It is a cult.

You have to be part of it if you want to stay alive. We have all become unwilling members of this mandatory cult that has been forced onto all of us ever since we were very small children. It is very disturbing really. It is time for a mass exit from this cult. Get out while you still can.

Sometimes TV will play a show about survivors, or those who have left a cult. It is easy for every viewer to recognize the danger and see the brainwashing. We usually wonder why these people would have ever fallen for it. Why did they stay? We often think that if it was us, we would have been out of there in an instant. Oh? Would you have gotten out in an instant? Really?

Sadly, the vast majority of people in a cult do not realize it and therefore will not get out until serious physical, mental, and psychological damage has been done. Sometimes it is too late and people never manage to escape the cult. This is the reality we are living in. We are in a cult and we need to do whatever it takes to get out of it.

If you have made it out of this cult, what are you doing to get others out of it? You can't just ignore it, and It's not going to go away. It is all of our responsibility to do something about this. We need to get ourselves out first, then we need to start helping others get out as well. This is the responsibility of each of us. If you know this, and do nothing, you participate and help to facilitate the brainwashing, indoctrination, and enslavement of the entire Human race. This is a huge weight to bear, but we must do everything we are each individually capable of to assist in the freeing of the Human race from this dangerous cult that we have been forced into. Get yourself out and then help as many people as you possibly can to get out. That is what we must do if we are ever to see a free Human race.

The Brain does not Create Consciousness

The interaction between the brain and consciousness is not what our education system, media, and government has conditioned us all to accept. According to their version, the brain creates consciousness, but this is provably false. Remember those children with no brains? They show signs of consciousness, this could not be if the brain is what generates and creates consciousness.

Materialists point out that when damage to the brain occurs, certain parts of consciousness cease to exist. They claim this proves the brain creates consciousness, but this proves nothing of the sort. If a radio becomes damaged and no longer tunes in a station, does that mean the radio created the broadcast? No, of course not, that is obviously ridiculous. If you damage a computer and it no longer connects to the internet, does that prove the computer is what generates the internet? Again, nothing but absolute nonsense and everyone knows it. Why would we ever accept this kind of explanation when it is obviously not true?

The brain is certainly involved in the process of consciousness, but no proof exists whatsoever that the brain creates consciousness. The suggestion that it does is not a fact, it is a belief, and should be regarded as such. Being that it is a belief, and a religious one at that, it is only proper to give it no more credibility than any other belief, no matter who is saying it.

In the gut is a huge number of neurons. Neurons and synaptic activity are why anything is going on in our brains, why would we have those same things in our guts? Our brains think, based on neurons and synaptic activity, does this not also mean that we could potentially think with our guts as well? Of course it does.

This is why we sometimes get what we call a gut feeling. Some people consider the gut to be a second brain in the Human body. These gut feelings often turn out to be amazingly accurate. Sometimes, and we have all experienced this, we just somehow know something based on a feeling in the center part of our body. We call this a gut feeling, a sense, or an intuition. It happens because the neurons in the gut are receiving information from somewhere and transmitting that information into something we can be conscious of. This is absolutely amazing.

The gut actually receives and transmits information into our consciousness having nothing at all to do with the brain. Sometimes these feelings alert us of danger or draw us in a particular direction. We don't always follow this, but when we do amazing things tend to happen. Sometimes we meet someone who we just don't feel right about, or someone who we feel we have known for our whole lives. This all comes from the gut, and it knows things that the brain does not. The gut is able to receive information that the brain is not capable of receiving. If we do not pay attention to the thoughts in our guts, we might be missing information that is profoundly important. These gut feelings are essential and we have them for a reason. If we ignore the information coming from our gut, we are ignoring part of what we need to know in order to function properly in the physical world.

Ignoring this part of ourselves typically leads to unsuccessful, unfulfilling, and unhappy lives. It also leads to all that goes along with living a life that is perceived to be meaningless. Why would anyone ever spend one moment of their time believing their life is meaningless? If you feel your life is meaningless, it is time to make a deliberate conscious decision to change that. It must be decided here and now, in this instant, that a meaningless life will be accepted no longer. Once that decision is made, demanded, and made mandatory the rest happens almost automatically. A meaningless, unfulfilling, pointless life can be turned into a fantastic, meaningful, and brilliant experience in an instant if we simply make that decision and then follow the gut about what comes next. Life can be an absolutely amazing and beautiful experience, regardless of our circumstances, if we choose it.

Decide that your life has value, meaning, direction, a point, and accept nothing less. Demand it and refuse any notion of anything else. Believe fully in this new understanding, follow your gut, soon your life will be an amazing adventure that leaves you full of everything good this life has to offer. This is the choice each of us make every single day. Look around, it is obvious who has made which choice. It is equally obvious, to everyone else, which choice you have made as well.

Always make the choice that leads to a more meaningful life, this gives the whole world more meaning. If you are what you want to see more of in the world, you have added that which you want more of to the world. One person can literally make a difference and a change to the whole world and to every person on this entire planet simply by changing themselves. It is amazing. If your life is not what you wish it to be, the whole world is waiting, get to making your life the way you want it to be. Do it now.

Many times people have a feeling or sense about something, having no idea why, or what it means, but later realize that their strange gut feeling has helped them to avoid a horribly negative experience. Is any of this because the brain creates consciousness? Obviously not. It is because neurons in the gut receive information and transmit the information as a feeling that we then experience and react to. The same is true of the brain. The brain does not create consciousness, it receives it and transmits it. It is just like a TV that receives a signal from somewhere else, then transmits that signal to be projected onto the screen. The brain does not make, produce, or create consciousness. It is a receiver and transmitter of consciousness no different than TVs, radios, and computers are receiver/transmitters of the signals they receive.

This is a proper understanding of what our brains actually do, and for thousands of years Humans have known this. It has only been in the past few hundred years, if even that long, that other ideas have emerged. Some areas of so-called science have come to a screeching halt due to what is being proven by other areas of science. Quantum physics is proving that beliefs held by Materialist are completely wrong. Eventually physics will prove, and it already has really, that the "five sense physical reality is all there is" fraud that they have shoved down all of our throats for our whole lives is not only wrong, but pathetically incapable of describing accurately even a small portion of reality.

Sometimes, recipients of transplanted hearts have had memories from the lives of the donors. This is impossible and cannot happen under the version of reality we have been forced and manipulated into believing. When people start knowing things after a heart transplant about the life of the person the heart came from, who they have never met and know nothing about, does that not prove beyond any doubt whatsoever that there is, at minimum, more to a Human than brain function alone? When put into full and proper perspective, the belief that we are just our brains is absurd, depressing, and ridiculous. It is unfounded, nonfactual, and not supported by real science. We have been held back and imprisoned in our own minds by this mandatory belief in that which is obviously nonsense.

Children who are forcibly indoctrinated, by the education system, into this false belief later become the adults who run our society. Those adults teach future children the same nonsense, on and on it goes. Eventually no one knows the difference, which is where we are today.

This should be unacceptable. Fact is, it is unacceptable, whether anyone realizes it or not. This is absolutely unacceptable, period, and we should stop allowing it.

We are not Human beings who have spiritual experiences, we are Spiritual beings who have human experiences. All of Humanity knew this until a group of psychotic psychopaths decided to convince the entire Human race that it was nothing more than a soulless creature that serves no purpose and has no future beyond this so-called physical reality.

You will live, you will believe what they say, you will do what they tell you, you will love it, you will do it until you die, and that is all there is.

This is what they require of us, and then people wonder why things like mental illness and depression are so common and increasing by the year. Why do you think? Look at the nightmare that has been imposed on us against our will. Mental illness, as it turns out, is quite an appropriate reaction to what has happened.

According to this distorted understanding of reality that we have been forced to accept, other than what happens here in this physical life, there are no consequences for how we act or what we do with our lives. No consequences for our actions plus the belief that it's all over with the instant we die, has allowed the Human mind and sense of morality to descend into the darkest of places. Just look at the horrible condition of our planet and our people. This idea that we are just hunks of animated flesh with no soul and no future has been a major contributing factor to the atrocities people are committing all over this planet. The utter disdain and disrespect for life, not only Human, but all life on this planet is appalling. Acting as if life has no value is the result of Materialistic Sciencism. It is a grotesque abomination beyond anything we should have ever allowed. It's time to stop allowing it. Whatever we allow is exactly what will continue.

If we see ourselves and each other as eternal infinite beings of unlimited potential and pure consciousness, the whole of reality shifts and the effect suddenly becomes beneficial and positive for everyone. You can't look at yourself or another person with disgust when you realize that we are all part of the most amazing thing that has ever existed. When you realize the true nature of yourself, it is exceedingly difficult to treat others poorly. You are literally a piece of the most meaningful, amazing, beautiful, and perfect thing that has ever or will ever exist. That is what we are and that is what we each are a part of. All of us are a piece of it and therefore a piece of each other. We are each a piece of everything. We are each a tiny piece of all that has ever been, all that is now, and all that will ever be. We are all part of that. So much for the whole meaningless pointless existence bit, that is right in the garbage, and rightfully so too.

When we align ourselves with what is right, and do what is right in every moment, things must become beneficial. When we align ourselves with what is wrong, and do what is wrong, then a horrible imbalance takes place. This imbalance then expresses itself through war, murder, violence, hatred, and every imaginable horror that can be. This is what has been forced upon us.

Some people will suggest that it is religion that has had the most destructive and devastating effect on the Human race, and they are absolutely correct in saying so. Materialistic science is nothing more than another religion, so all statements made concerning the negative effects of religion equally apply to the religion of Materialism.

Science and religion go together just like left and right politics. One is at one end of the stick and the other at the other end, but they are the same stick. Left wing vs right wing is the same as science vs religion. They are different aspects of the same thing. That thing is a way to control your mind and keep you from understanding the truth.

We are Everything

All through history people have had extraordinary experiences that in every way defy what materialistic science says is possible. Out-of-body and near-death experiences are fairly common. After one of these experiences, those who experience them never adhere to the "five sense physical only" view of reality. If the brain is the only source of consciousness, why have people in hospitals, who were brain dead, commonly experienced seeing and hearing things that would be impossible if the brain is the creator of consciousness?

After recovering, people who were literally brain dead have known about people who have visited them while they were supposed to be conscious of nothing. Complete conversations have been recalled by people who were brain dead while the conversations were taking place.

Experiments have been conducted using numbers, letters, or symbols that have been placed in certain locations, like on top of light fixtures, that would be impossible to see lying on a hospital bed. Someone would have to be floating or on a ladder to see what was there, yet brain dead people have accurately reported things like this ever since it has been being tested. The way these tests work is by letters, numbers, or symbols being put in places that cannot be seen from the bed, then waiting for someone to report having seen them. If someone is aware of these markings, having never been told, this suggests that something after brain death is more likely than nothing after brain death.

How can any of this be true if the brain is the only source of consciousness? It cannot. All those who have near-death experiences report remarkably similar stories. They almost always remember a light at the end of a tunnel and various other things that are strikingly similar.

Maybe that light at the end of the tunnel is the opening at the end of the birth canal. Maybe those who have come back from near-death experiences, who have seen this light at the end of the tunnel, are babies that did not survive birth. When considering reincarnation this idea does seem at least possible. It is certainly something interesting to consider.

Ian Stevenson studied reincarnation for 50 years at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. During his time at the university he held some very impressive positions. He was chair of the department of psychiatry from 1957 to 1967, Carlson Professor of Psychiatry from 1967 to 2001, and Research Professor of Psychiatry from 2002 until he died in 2007. After 50 years of study, Stevenson concluded that certain things were impossible without reincarnation. He believed to have found proof that reincarnation was factual in some cases. Stevenson cited many cases of people knowing things they could not have known unless they had previous lives. Ian Stevenson concluded that reincarnation was a factual reality. He also concluded that the brain does not produce consciousness, the brain receives and transmits consciousness.

We are eternal beings that use the physical body, including the brain, as a way of experiencing this reality, or frequency, that we call the physical world. Materialistic science cannot understand these things, but it is not meant to. It is meant to manipulate us and keep us from understanding our true nature. Our true nature is infinite awareness and pure consciousness. We are everything. We are all that was, is, and will be. We are infinite, limitless, and boundless. That is our true nature. Death is an illusion, nothing more than energy transforming from one form to another. The five sense only version of materialistic mainstream brainwashing science has no way of understanding or interacting with the real reality we are part of. It is no different than the understanding a fish has of what is outside the water. When it comes to consciousness and the true nature of reality, science truly is a fish out of water.

Science is not here to provide answers to any of this and it has no tools by which to do so. It is here to manipulate, control, and keep us separate from truth. The version of science we have before us is here to convince us that we have no power and to keep the world in a perpetual state of imbalance and disharmony. The world must be kept in a perpetual state of imbalance if control is to be maintained. Godless, soulless, materialistic, mainstream, what passes for science, is part of that control, and it works very well. Whoever regular religion doesn't get, Materialistic Sciencism will. That has always been the true purpose of Materialism, to gobble up those who did not fall for the other religions. Brainwashing, mind control, manipulation, and disconnecting us from the knowledge of what we really are, that is the purpose of this that we call science. It is abuse and it is wrong.

When we rise above this deception healing can begin. Our people and our planet need healing now more than ever. It really is time to get moving in directions that can accommodate healing. The path we are on now only leads to more of the same. How much more can we really tolerate? We must do something about this, and we must do it now. No more waiting around to do something. Waiting is wasting. No more waiting, the time to speak out and the time to act is now. Do not delay, delay only creates more suffering. Do not create more suffering, we surely have enough of that already.

"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." - Albert Einstein
"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." - Albert Einstein

Look beyond the Illusion

We are enslaved by our technology and all the super busy stuff we have. Very little time is given to the contemplation of death and life in our modern mainstream world. We all just go on about our business, never thinking about it, never preparing. Then we wonder why we overreact and are completely unprepared when that inevitable day comes for someone we love. How might these experiences be different if we spend a little time exploring and uncovering the eternal selves that we truly are?

We don't have time for any of that, and that is exactly why our world is going in the horrible direction it is. It is time to pull ourselves away from all of the mindless meaningless garbage we immerse ourselves in. We must step back from all of the distractions and take a little time to focus on and consider things that are much more important than this physical life that seems so real to us. It is not real, it is an illusion. See through the illusion, reality is waiting.

      Yes, absolutely! Look through my other articles. I wrote several concerning this: Who-What-When-Where We Really Are -- Welcome to the Hologram, There's Nothing Real About the Real World, Reality is an Illusion -- Welcome to the Matrix, The Illusion of the Holographic Universe, The Moon Matrix Theory, The Saturn Matrix Theory. I touched on the idea in some other articles too, but I am absolutely convinced that indeed we do exist within, and are part of, something exactly like The Matrix.

      Jason Horne? I must commend you that your article does encourage its readers to think outside the box. I do have one curiosity, however. I've come across videos all over YouTube in which so-called experts have claimed that we are living in a simulation. Do you believe that such a thing could be possible?

      10 months ago from North Central West Virginia, where the green grass grows...

      I have studied and practiced Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism,and Taoism. From 13 to 45. I also have 40 years of formal and informal studies in Metaphysics. I became ill with Fibromyalgia and dropped the PhD in Metaphysical Psychology I was nearing completion in 2014. The Wisdom books of all those "isms" can best be viewed as that culture's attempt to explain reality as they faced it at the time. Or, the Science of the day. When all of those Book's descriptions and explanations are viewed as a whole certain ideas can be viewed as "facts, for they support and explain the same realities, one being the view that death is the end of nothing, but a continuation of "life."

      The various practices of divinity in Metaphysics, Astrology, Tarot, Numerology, I'Ching, all of which I studied and practiced for those 40 years (and still do) are all based on strict guidelines and practices. Not once have I ever been given contradictory information from one concerning another and each of their systems, have for me withstood my doubts or suspicions and have proven their efficacy. Nor have I come across anything that with study and contemplation that would contradict the information in the Wisdom Books I have studied and used.

      I guess what I am saying is that I slightly disagree with your thesis that there are no facts concerning death only beliefs - educated and uneducated.

      That is not to say that you have not written an excellent essay on the subject. This old (69) dog can still learn new tricks!

      Thanks for an excellent, well thought out post.

      You sound like someone who has done their research, and then some - how refreshing! When you realize that past civilizations on this planet have been more technologically-advanced than we are today; and that we have LOST so much of that former knowledge - it becomes clear that science is just now starting to get a grip on our reality.

      For instance, all the 'evidence' that is coming to light about us 'creating our own reality; combined with quantum physics revealing just how pliable and moldable our reality is BY US. We are both 'receivers' and 'broadcasters' of wants/need and desires, respectively. (Look up 'Law of Attraction') As people are starting to realize this, slowly - one at a time - we are coming 'into the light'.

      This is actually the main reason why our world is currently in chaos - because most of us don't understand that WE create this reality through our 'beliefs' - erroneous or not - and how divisive are they, collectively?!

      FYI, this is the context of the ORIGINAL message of Jesus Christ whose messages have been seriously tainted by the pagan religions he was actually trying to 'get people out of' and FREE them from. His death wasn't about 'salvation' - it was about dying for a spiritual message that the world could not handle: basically, the same as every other 'Christ' who has been here before him, such as Buddha: that the 'Kingdom of God' is WITHIN and 'the way' is through the heart - not 'believing' in a god or religion.

      For instance, when Jesus said: I am the way, the truth and the light... or even in the verse K&T gave us above, "Joh 8:12 Then Jesus spoke again to them, saying: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will by no means walk in darkness, but will possess the light of life.”

      The *I* Jesus is talking about in both instances has been CORRECTED via recent bible translations discovered: he is talking about his 'christos' - or soul within than exists within the hearts of absolutely everyone (Luke20:21 - the kingdom of God is within; John 10:34 "Is it not written in your law, I said, YOU are gods?).

      We are EXACTLY like Jesus Christ, and he was 'called' by people decades before his time because they were a people SCREAMING for relief and truth about themselves. Essentially, Jesus came to 'show us how to do things' WITHOUT paganism - like how to heal people through the concepts of Law of Attraction. Do you 'believe' that YOU can walk on water? If you can convince yourself of that, you can! No 'God' or belief in him, required. Belief in yourself - or your OWN christos within - is all that is needed. ;)

      Thank you all for your comments and for reading. I certainly do appreciate it. Although the information is vast and certainly can never fit into one article, this information and perspective has had a profound effect on my life. This type of information, which I will write more about as time goes by, is in my opinion, some of the most powerful information anyone can ever come to understand. It does not matter from what perspective or background a person comes, understanding this information can be life changing, and indeed it has been for me.

      I've been fortunate to be involved with a school where mapping consciousness is a prime endeavour. The experiences are phenomenal and in the past we have touched on the subjects you are writing about. Consciousness is easily discerned as being beyond the brain once you find a way to see it. Consciousness is such a vast topic it is difficult to label its meaning. There are layers upon layers. Perhaps in science this will never be achieved because the measuring tools are lacking.

      True in your hub there is a real illusion that exist, the bible calls says this.

      2Co 11:14 And no wonder, for Satan himself keeps disguising himself as an angel of light.

      2Co 4:4 among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.

      Joh 8:12 Then Jesus spoke again to them, saying: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will by no means walk in darkness, but will possess the light of life.”

      This is the only way to see the truth. If a person does not follow Jesus in the manor as he instructed you will always see from the darkness satan blinds many with.

      You touch on some very important issues that science does not have all the answers.

      Jason.....It's been while since I've stopped by and I'm very pleased I chose to read this phenomenal work of yours, this evening. When I first joined HP over 5 yrs ago, I recall there was a way to print out copies of our hubs. There hasn't been for quite some time, which disappoints me when I come across a mind-blowing work of art as this is. When I'm so very impressed with something I've read, I like to make copies, not only to share with friends, but to carry around with me from place to place so I can read it over and over again. Sure, I can send the link to everyone and come to your site any time I'd like to read it again but that's just not the same to me. I've carried poems & notes and quotes around with me for years.

      So, now that I've confessed one of my strange habits........I can barely find the appropriate words to tell you how enlightening and positive I find this hub. It has fueled flames I've had for some time now.

      You've mentioned so many things I've heard about, thought about and come to sincerely embrace through the years. I clearly remember reading something once.....a statement by "someone" about believing that the heart has it's own brain. That's just one of those profound perceptions that made such an impact on me and literally opened a part of my brain. Yet, as affected as I was by that, I can't tell you what it was I was reading at the time, nor who said those words. It simply impacted me.

      The same can be said with regard to what you have written about our "gut." I can surely attest to numerous experiences when my gut saved me from disaster or worse. And just as many times when my gut would have slapped me if it could because I fluffed it off, knowing full well I was doing the wrong thing. Wow. Just wow, Jason. You are so filled with sensibility & genius thought. My head is spinning. I will sleep on all that you've presented here and then tomorrow, come back to read it all again. I intend to get my hands on the book by Stevenson

      I really want to get back to more frequent reading here and your site is a perfect place to start. I trust you to impress, enlighten & intrigue me. Thank you for such a wonderful read, Jason. Paula
