Many if not most ancient cultures have some sort of Great Flood myth. Usually involves some fertile respite and a very few people left to start things over again. Call it what you will but we can surmise that something of magnitude happened in antiquity, the details lost over time. Of necessity real history is a lossy format, the real feel and taste is extremely perishable. Having a belief in Something Else, that there is something beyond corporeal existence is also an extremely common theme. So is this biology and sociology that collectively works to our advantage somehow or myth with some actual basis in fact?
There are non-Western cultures that readily accept life after death, in fact embrace it. There are accounts of bodies being marked in certain ways that reappear in children. Sometimes they bear scars from grievous mortal wounds, past illness, or are deliberately marked by relatives near or shortly after physical death. Descriptions of what happens 'in between' are not unheard of and a very few have been well documented. Some bear remnants of past personalities and possess detailed knowledge of them for otherwise inexplicable reasons.
Sounds to me like a natural process that we are aware of and can describe that 'modern empirical science' is having a hard time getting it's head around. Typically, it's always late to the party. I've spent a bit of time looking for veridical evidence without success, only got tantalizing synchronicities.
God, what would anyone do if they actually received this proof ?
I've mentioned this privately but may as well drop it here. My best friend passed last year quickly and badly. He lived with us a while before he went into a facility. We created a secret message - a simple phrase that could easily be represented in an image. We signed it, mailed it to myself so it's post marked and it's been in a commercial safe that only I have access to since February 2021. Put some effort into finding the 'right person' to help with this and can say it was all very illuminating but not overly helpful.
The part I never considered is what the hell would I do if I actually GOT the damned message? When you think about it, isn't that a bit of a reality-worldview-rattler ? Like my dog finally catching the UPS truck, now what?
I believe that we continue to exist in some form but am wondering if it would be unhealthy if we actually could communicate. If someone were to invent for example, a 'radio transmitter for talking to God' to paraphrase Rene Belloq, would it really be a good idea?
I believe it's a more complicated process than just dropping a line. If this were the case everyone would hear from their loved ones after passing. I don't really know how some people are able to receive messages or farewells while others are not. However, I'm not ready to write off everyone's story on behalf of those who didn't receive a message.
I'm not sure how it happens or why it happens or why it doesn't happen to everyone, But, It can't entirely be an emotional connection to the individual either, IF that were the case no one would have ever seen a ghost ever. Unless one is inclined to believe that no one has ever seen a ghost ever. I feel like, It may have something to do with the individual that perceives.. Perhaps that individual on the receiving end has some sort of experience or property to their individuality that makes it possible, Perhaps a near-death experience that they themselves have had. I'm not sure.
I can say this though, Just as it would be with the supernatural, If everyone everywhere got to experience it, There would be little mystery to the facts swarming about all around us. I do know, To some Degree, Some people have had genuine experiences, I know this because I've had them.
If I had to give any input on this, I would say, The Messages we receive are not truly in real-time, I believe there are limitations. Strong emotional Feelings, Perhaps could be conveyed, While, Logical output like, The Answer to an intricate question may be more difficult to convey.
In Certain Contexts, and Scriptures Death is conveyed in this way, The Body perishes, The worries and concerns, and possibly all memories parish. The reason for this as I understand it is that what is left can truly be at peace, Because how could they be at peace with all those memories and worries weighing them down? In spiritual Scripture, This includes Hindu, Christian, Jewish, Even Satanism, and Witchcraft, The Soul leaves the Body and passes on to another place, A place where souls are gathered together with others and, Contained, Held, Stored there, perhaps sleeping.
I bring this up because personal beliefs are unique to individuals. But These are shared beliefs spanning various spiritualities and epochs, So they are cross-referenced to some degree.
Some, May never Believe, And that's fine. But, This needs to be said. A great many people have had experiences. If the truth was truly unveiled. One would quickly see more people have experienced the unknown than not. I don't ask that people believe as I do, But I feel it necessary to point out that the nonbeliever is the minority by an extraordinarily vast margin, and
By a margin so vast, It makes me wonder if they are even looking... "Not talking about God here, Im talking about The entirety of the supernatural"
