Interview: The Big Question

Josh Okello invited me back on his show and he entitled the episode “The Big Question” where we talked about transmigration of souls, reincarnation and life after death. We also discussed my writings on Quora where I have been answering many questions related to the three books I have written.

We talk about the most popular question that I have answered so far, and that is about the story of Eve being made from Adam’s rib. As with many of the stories in the bible, this is of a nonmaterial nature. God did not wrap earth around a rib He took from Adam, but rather He took a physical body and ensouled it with one of the false ribs – the fallen pair of Elders (Rev 4:4). God put this symbolism into man’s body – showing the 24 elders, and only fourteen of them are connected to Jesus (the sternum).

We discussed the flood as how it fits into earth’s history. The abrupt global warming, that occurred around 8,500 BC, flooded the inhabited delta regions and wiped out those who were not prepared for the rising waters. But Noah, a spiritual pioneer in the plan of this benevolent force, was saved. This was like burning the dry brush away to allow the tender green roots of virtue to take hold.

In addition, we spoke about the plan of salvation, which is not spoken of in any religion. The concept is that each one of us is a fallen angel, and this material world was created for us to regain our virtues and overcome our vices in an unperceivably slow process of rebirth. I have explained this in the books and also in a post on Quora called How can God’s work of salvation be summarized?

Torn Between Two Worlds answers many common questions on Quora

Since the release of my trilogy, I have been answering common questions posted on Quora addressed by my books. Over 4,700 questions have been answered and these have received over 3.5 million views. There seems to be a hunger for logic and reason that both religions and science are having difficulty delivering. Below are the questions I have answered that are of most interest to readers.

Although the old Testament reveals women were made from Adam’s rib, what is the actuality now known by science?

Do birthmarks have a spiritual meaning?

Do we reincarnate instantly after we die? Or do we end up in some kind of limbo waiting for years and years until it’s the right time to reincarnate?

How is it that the pyramids were build 12,000 BC and Adam and Eve came about 8000 BC?

What is the true story of Lucifer and the fallen angels?

Why do ‘ghosts’ never talk about going to heaven and what that is like or about God?

The Discovery – thoughts on life after death

I was looking to forward to this film to see how they handle the topic that I discuss in my third book – Torn Between Two Worlds: Material and Ethereal. I was quickly disappointed in the first scene, where the discovery of life after death turns into a call for mass suicides. But then when I thought about it further, I realized that this might be a logical conclusion with no guiding philosophy. The conclusion drawn is that death is like “pushing the reset button” on life. In my book, I lay out some research into the consequences of the lifestyle on the type of after life that could follow such a life. There is an indication in the research that a suicide has dramatic consequences, including the theory that the next life could present the same issues that one is attempting to escape.

The second thing that stood out for me was a quote by Thomas (Robert Redford). He said, “Faith, oh god, I have such contempt for that word. Show me someone who relies on faith, and I’ll show you someone who has given up control over whatever it is that they believe.” This shows me how misunderstood faith is in the scientific community. Einstein was one of the few scientists that understood the importance of faith. He once said that he has faith in the nobility of nature. Science needs to relearn this trait if they are to successfully unravel some of nature’s secrets.

I often tell friends that they need to learn to have faith in themselves. By looking at all that one has been able to overcome already in life, should reassure one that they can handle anything life throws at them in the future – have faith instead of fear. This is faith based on a logical assessment of one’s accomplishments. No one should be ashamed of having faith in themselves or, like Einstein, in the beauty of nature.

Discussion on Periscope with Josh Okello

Josh Okello invited me to join his show on Friday night to discuss the trilogy Torn Between Two Worlds. After having read the first book, Josh had a wide range of questions about the nature of reality and truth, the origin of the universe, and more philosophical concepts that stretched the breadth of my three books. I look forward to continuing the conversation with Josh and his twitter followers.

In this discussion, I hope I was able to make the point that any theory of our universe and its creation needs to encompass much more than scientific realities. It must be able to explain:

  • the anomalies that science ignores,
  • the common perceptions of people with clairvoyant gifts,
  • commonalities in near-death and out-of-body experiences,
  • the shared experiences researchers have with ghosts,
  • the multitude of religious beliefs, and
  • the wide variety of human life experiences/tragedies.

Ideally, this theory should also answer the three basic questions of human existence:

  • Where do we come from?
  • Why are we here?
  • Where are we going?

New insights into addiction from beyond the veil

I start with this account from the late 19th century, not for its time period, but for the level of enlightenment of the deceased. He is a self-proclaimed egotist, and the ethereal world that he describes is fitting to his character. I imagine it on the one hand as the wild west, due to its amount of lawlessness, and like a ghetto on the other hand, due to its run-down and dirty appearance.

This is a fascinating story to read after having read Wickland’s work, because it complements the knowledge he imparts. Franchezzo explains how he and other ethereal beings in this wild west influence weak-willed humans. After death, an addict is still an addict, so they seek out humans that they can connect with to experience the “high” of their addiction. They accomplish this through temporary possession. For example, a deceased alcoholic will search out weak-willed drinkers and encourage them to keep drinking so that he can enjoy the ethereal essence of the alcohol and the intoxicating feeling experienced by the drinker.

We also find from this story that the deceased are encouraged to improve their base thinking and strive for virtue. Benevolent beings visit these lower regions and encourage the residents to consider a path of redemption, a nobler path. Though, as in the material world, free will is respected and no one is forced to change their ways, until they are incarnated again in the material world.

Heal Thyself: Modern Science has not changed much in a century

After nearly one hundred years, the success rate of treating mental heath ailments has progressed little. In his book, Heal Thyself, Dr. Edward Bach discusses the variability of results from the various treatments available at his time. He was disturbed by the lack of consistency in treating the symptoms. A similar situation exists today with results from pharmaceuticals, eastern medicine, acupuncture and various energy healing techniques, including Dr. Bach’s own Bach Flower Remedies.

The theme of my trilogy, Torn Between Two Worlds, is to highlight scientific anomalies that are not currently understood with a materialistic viewpoint and to suggest a holistic approach that can help to encourage researchers to look at other factors not currently part of their experiments. In the case of Bach, this is the logical step he took. He boldly named his book Heal Thyself because he truly believed that it is the patient who knows the most about the underlying causes of their ailments, they just need to be empowered in order to treat themselves.

It seems logical to me that when anomalous results exist, that there are more variables involved in the solution to consider. Currently, medical professionals are discouraged from looking for non-materialistic factors and non-materialistic results. Dr. Bach went out into nature and discovered thirty-six essences that are effective in treating the sources of many ailments such as anxiety, depression, and mental distress. These essences are of an ethereal nature. They are the direct transfer of the flower’s essence into water using sunlight and contain no material components. There are other similar studies that have come to the same conclusion, notably Dr. Emoto’s use of Hado water in treating similar ailments.

Dark Energy explained in Death by a loss of 21 grams

The work of Dr. Duncan MacDougall was groundbreaking in many respects. Firstly, he had the curiosity to apply science to the impact of death, with scientific rigor. Secondly, because he was able to explain the variations in the test to match the personality of the subject.

Finally, the 21 grams which are lost at death correspond to 1.9 billion MJ of energy that escaped into the ether, providing evidence for the so-called Dark Energy theorized by astrophysics. If each living body, including celestial bodies, contains a proportional amount of energy, this might account for the missing energy that the Dark Energy hypothesis represents.

A secondary effect of MacDougall’s experiment is to suggest that the universe is permeable, not to suggest that there are multiple dimensions. The 1.9 billion MJ was not released into the closed room of his experiment, but the first law of thermodynamics says that this energy went somewhere, it was not destroyed. The Torn Between Two World hypothesis is supported by this observation.

Together with the work of Ian Stevenson, we have enough evidence to examine the so-called Dark Energy in near space. By bridging the gap between science and spirituality, wisdom can be acquired. We need more scientists to help religion to dispel their illogical doctrines and dogma, rediscovering the wisdom of the founders of science: Euclid, Pythagoras, Democritus, and Hippocrates.

The loss of weight from the 21 Grams Movie

Scientists have rebuffing the experiments without bothering to do what MacDougall recommended: increase the sample size. At the time of his experiments, he was using leading edge technology that can be replicated today with much greater accuracy. Instead, they make statements like this: In other words, the measurements are not dependable, so should be disregarded.

Between Science and Religion

And get back to the wisdom of the founders of science.

It is time to get over Aristotle.

One of the fundamental laws of physics is that a force is met with an equal and opposite force. Since Galileo rescued science from religion, science has done battle with religion: knowledge vs belief. I would go as far as to say that science has violated one of its most basic laws, and as a result, helped to create an equal and opposite force in this world. When we look at history, whenever a group gained power through knowledge (at the expense of others) a force grew within society to oppose it.

The Roman church’s adaptation of Aristotle as their proxy for science, set scientific development back for centuries, until Galileo pried it free in the 17th century. Since then, modern science has developed its theories about the physical world at an amazing pace, while the churches have remained stagnant, with few exceptions.

This book celebrates the wisdom held by each of these two worlds and attempt to highlight the blind-spots that have kept the two sides from forming a partnership. One of the universal wisdoms that religions have taught for millennia is that when you give, you receive more in return. John Nash received the Nobel Prize for proving this spiritual wisdom, and it is in this spirit that a cooperation between science and religion could be formed.

Between Wisdom and Rhetoric

So, even if science and religion work together to break down barriers and expand the understanding of the universe, there is another battle, on a different dimension, that we need to examine. Knowledge without wisdom can be even more dangerous when coupled with someone talented in rhetoric. Rhetoric in this book is defined as the use of knowledge and beautiful speech to achieve a political objective. Philosophy is defined as the “love of wisdom” and the search for it among the rhetoric will prove difficult.

I must admit that it took me many years to be able to understand and verbalize this dimension. Trying to understand the difference between an argument based in laws and one that is almost all based in laws is often impossible without looking at the personal motivations and character. Often this cannot be known in time and can only be studied after the fact. This book will analyze some key moments in history, starting with the master of this topic, Socrates. Thanks to Plato, the words of the master of logic have been preserved, and we can examine the battle he fought between wisdom and rhetoric, and the impact of his loss on the world.

The subtleness of this loss is symbolized on the cover of this book by the difference between the Ionic- and Doric-order. The Erechtheion is an Ionic-order temple built by the enlightened of Athens. The six Karyatides staring out to the ocean, depicting the women of Athens carrying the weight of society while their men were defending Athens from foreign invasion. In his early life, it was Socrates who carved these six images of his wife, the wife who was stolen from him by a Spartan as he was away defending his country. It was this materialistic society who built the monstrous Parthenon, with none of this subtle symbolism of the value of women to the enlightened Greeks.

Between Material and Ethereal

This is the third and final battle. Even with all the knowledge and wisdom we have gained, every day we make choices between the material world and the ethereal world – choices between our ego or our true selves. Underpinning these personal choices are two ethereal destinations that are actively courting us. One of these destinations offers material rewards for its loyalty, while the other offers spiritual rewards. This final book will shed light onto the masters of these two destinations and the characteristics of their servants. The ancient Greeks referred to the two sets of servants as Nymphs and Muses. Each Nymph specializing in a different vice, ready to offer material reward for loyalty. Each Muse specializing in one of the virtues and offering wisdom for loyalty.

I will start by looking at the life of Abram and examine how these two masters tried to influence him. By taking what science has uncovered about the life of Abram and what religions teach about he and the lives of his children, we can begin to see the spiritual battle that has raged on earth since the beginning of time. The Archangel Michael was there at the beginning of this battle, and now it is our turn to finish the fight; this is the purpose of life in the material world.

The enlightened Greeks celebrated the emergence of Aphrodite from the Bitter Sea, escaping its ruler Poseidon and starting her journey back to Olympus. The cover also shows how they depicted Hercules, disguised in a lion skin, the symbol for the ruler of this world and of the Bitter Sea.
