Most religions believe in the premise of heaven and hell where only spiritual beings may exist and it is said that humans are an amalgamation of spirit and flesh.
Our spirits are supposedly the variants of a Supreme Being whom we commonly refer to as “God” and when our physical bodies expires after many years of living this mortal life, our spirit returns to the source – God. Over the years religions and beliefs evolved from the polytheistic aristocracy into the oneness of monotheistic views, but with hundreds of different beliefs. Which one fits closest to truth or logic?
The answer may lie further than what we fundamentally accept and it could be far stranger that we’ve ever imagined it would be. Today I would like to share my views or theory on the subject of life, death, our spirit and what I would like to describe as the “Ether.”
Among the many documented cases of near death experiences (NDE) nearly everyone’s account are strangely identical to each other, no matter the distance of these events and when they occur. Their race, creed, color, religious beliefs, gender and age are also of no consequence because everyone speaks of darkness, and then an out of body experience (i.e. spiritual separation of the soul from the body). After a brief moment the corridor of light appears and the eventual arrival to a resplendent place at the end of the tunnel (corridor of light). Some speak of meeting with old relatives who had previously died as far back as 70 – 100 years ago, others say that they encounter some spiritual beings that at times take human form and in another becomes like a being of pure energy. There were rarely any accounts of Jesus, Buddha, prophets, angels or even the religious depiction of “God.” If anything, God was described as the light that illuminates that place where the dead go, but that sentient being never claimed that he was anybody’s god or made any religious references of any kind-even to the most faithful of believers. In my opinion that place could be the “Ether” where the life-force of our spirits conglomerate from before we were born to the time when we’ve arrived here and back. The Ether may have already synergistically co-exist with our physical planet before we even knew about it, but at a different plane of reality and if our spirits can cross from that plane of existence and possess our bodies that would allow us to live 100 years at best, then the reverse might just be possible.
Life, Death and Reincarnation
It would seem that our inauguration into this life is not by our choice nor is it by our parent’s choice, but it appears to be more like a random selection. Humans do not predetermine to choose their mates nor does reproduction and genetic formation that ultimately results in a fetus and yet we have Einsteins, Teslas, Edisons, Mozarts and so many other diverse personalities that helped shaped our society into what it is now. I believe that there are two kinds of spiritual beings, one who has less control of his destiny that bonds with human flesh and dies after a century more or less and another who can cross over spiritual and physical boundaries at will. We referred to the latter as angels, demons and gods and just like us, some of them are benevolent while others are purely evil. They can also choose to remain in spirit form or possess a host (human) in order to manifest themselves to us, but clearly they are the bosses in the spirit realm. If our spirits therefore could transcend from the Ether to our world and vice versa, then reincarnation might be possible as well.
You may have hear them for yourself or have experience them directly, but just to let you know I do no claim that any of them to be factual or true. However, the circumstance of the stories themselves and the physical residue that they come into contact with and how a witness describes the events is absolutely thought provoking. There was a story about a woman who had died for a few minutes while having a brain surgery and her eyes and ears were covered with cotton buds and sanitary cloth. However, she described the materials the surgeons used to open her skull and remove her tumor in perfect detail and what’s most puzzling of all is that she never saw those things before, during and after the operation, even the doctors were stunned to hear her story. She also mentioned being in a very beautiful place where the light seems to come from everywhere and saw her dead relatives there as well as people whom she never met, but felt a connection with them. She then asked one of her relatives if “God was the light” and her relative answered that “the light happens when God breathes.”
Another story tells of electronic voice phenomenon (EVP) that was popularized by the movie “White Noise” experts believe that they are static electrical pulses that are misinterpreted as (dead) human voices. But again if this was the only accepted explanation then how is it that these voices knew intimate details about their relatives who communicate with them through the same medium. There are also ghost stories that were described as moving really heavy objects that would normally take about 10 – 20 people to lift and move while others are so extreme that they would cause harm to human beings and some even got killed.
There was a story about several groups of Malaysian teenagers who would love to venture out in Mother Nature’s exotic spots and would go there to picnic. The local farmer who lives near that forest would often notice that each time these young thrill seekers would visit and bathe in the waterfall at least one of them would get sick and mysteriously die after a few hours with no medical explanations why. Then a local charismatic Christian church decided to visit the place and to pray over it and they were shocked to see the kind of non-human beings that lived there. The pastors realized that they were dealing with something beyond what their prayers can do and so they left luckily unharmed and ever since that time they would advice people not to venture in that part of the forest because the beings claimed that if humans would trespass their domain, they will demand a human life as a sacrifice.
Who are these ultra-terrestrial beings who seem to co-exist with us who are often more or less malevolent towards us? What do they want from us? Why do they always conceal their presence from us and choose only to reveal themselves to a few whom we consider as having mental issues that make up fairy tale stories about them? If we truly believe in the cardinal rule of the scientific method we would approach these matters with a rational mind and spend time and effort in investigating them with a clear aim to find out the truth about these things. Sadly we will still have to wait for that day to come.
