An interesting a provocative answer, IDONO. I like it. Such a subject for ongoing dialog....
EP. This came from a conversation I had with a friend one time. We were talking about why the thought of "before birth" doesn't create fear, but the thought of after death does. This ? didn't ask this, but the conversation came to mind.
That makes it all clear, and brings it round.
Did you and your friend come to any conclusion?
Maybe before birth, well, whatever it was already happened and here I am.
After death, it is still an unknown for most. Fear of the unknown.
EP. No conclusions. More ?s. I think what scares us is that "here I am" is a result of what "already happened." Is the key to heaven (afterlife) based on what we do now? Your idea would mean we are presently in heaven or hell as a result of B4 birth
No conclusions here either, IDONO. Just an ever-expanding & evolving perspective.
'Your idea would mean we are presently in heaven or hell as a result of B4 birth.'
I see your point. Do we create our experience on both sides, in each dimensi
Maybe. But at some point they would have to cross paths or there would be no purpose and I've always been taught that everything has a purpose. We can't be talking Doppelganger or they would have to exist at the same time.
Will look up Doppelganger, whether quantum mechanics or a German rock band. There is still to explore the theory that all possibilities exist in the same instant. I see not a wheel of rebirth but a continuity which varies with ind'l awareness. More..
Doppelganger is a mirror image copy of one's self. They look identical but usually one is good and one is evil. They are exact opposites. Your stuff is getting a little heady for me. I'm getting lost in philosophical jargon. Please come back to earth
Add to my answer, and with all respect, my perception of death for the many who live only a physical life is that their body is returned to the earth and their animating spark, or UOC if they have one, is recycled back into 'stardust' - a metaphor.
I learned as a bible student That death was a sentence given to Our first human parents, Adam and Eve ,because they challenge thier Father ,Almighty God's Authority over what was Good and bad,Because they listen to the voice of satan,(snake) .
You have a right to your belief. I applaud you.
Have you written any hubs on the subject? I have dreams of those who've passed through the veil, sometimes they seem real. And experienced earthbound souls in the wilderness - hub 'Return to the River of No Return.' Blessings on your path.
