There are some interesting, non traditional ways of looking at this subject. We already know there are people with odd abilities to know things they should not be able to know. Twins have some of these abilities at times. We've all heard how someone wakes up in the middle of the night, knowing that a tragedy has occurred involving a loved one. Others have memories of past lives.
My question is this: Has evolution only occurred on the physical plain, or has it also occurred on a metaphysical plane? Has some element of energy evolved to the point that it survives and moves on? Just questions for which I have no answers, but I find them interesting. Still no rock solid proof though.
