The Demystified Afterlife
Updated: 3 days ago
For those of you who are interested in a straightforward, secular and normalized understanding of the afterlife put forth in easily understandable terms, I offer my version of a demystified afterlife. This perspective comes from many years of absorbing an enormous amount of afterlife and other researchand information, and my own experiences.
The key to understanding the afterlife, at least in general, is to understand the basics of how and where it exists. First, the afterlife has been proved to exist for over a hundred years now, dating back to the early 1900's when four of the top scientists in history - Dr. Alfred Russel Wallace, William Crookes, Sir William Barrett and Sir Oliver Lodge investigated the evidence of the time and unanimously proclaimed the afterlife a scientific fact. Since then, the credible evidence has expanded into multiple categories of research far beyond what they had available at the time, all of it only adding to the weight of their conclusion. We now know that the afterlife exists; asserting otherwise is the denial of a mountain of convincing evidence, including countless credible, first-hand, eye-witness experiences alongside decades of scientific research in multiple categories.
Quantum physics has demonstrated the "how" and "where" of the afterlife. The existence of the afterlife is no more remarkable than the existence of this life when viewed in the light of what 100 years of quantum research has demonstrated, including the experiments that won the 2022 Nobel Prize in physics. This research has proved that we do not live in a world of matter and energy, but rather in a world of mind and consciousness. We have found - conclusively - that there is no objective, material world outside of the mind, no external realism, so to speak.
“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.” - Max Planck, Nobel Prize-winning physicist and the father of quantum theory.
“The atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts." - Werner Heisenberg, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics.
"Observations not only disturb what is to be measured, they produce it." - Pascual Jordan, physicist, early contributor to quantum theory.
What has been proved not only provides a basis for the continuation of consciousness after what we all "death,' it necessitates it. The atoms that make up our bodies and brain do not cause our mind or consciousness; they cannot, because it is our mind/consciousness that causes those atoms to "exist" in our experience. They are a product of mind, not vice-versa. The "death" of the physical body cannot cause the end of that which is causing it to exist in the first place. That's like saying that once the music stops, the violin ceases to exist.
We have an easy example of what is going on and how to think of this when we dream. In dreams, our mind can produce a fully physical world in which we have fully physical bodies. We usually have no memory of our waking world or our lives there while we are participating in our dream world. Are those physical bodies and objects in the dream world made of atoms or subatomic particles? No. If you could examine those bodies in the dream world closely enough, you would come to the same conclusion our scientists have come to about this world: it all exists in, is produced by, is caused by mind and consciousness.
So, you might think of existence s being a collection of "dream worlds" with certain mental states that define the nature of the kind of experience one has in that shared world. Death can only be a transition to an new experience. Physical death in this world can no more "end" us than physical death in a dream world, because both worlds are produced by mind/consciousness, and mind/consciousness is fundamental.
So, the afterlife is no more "mysterious" or difficult to understand than this world or a dream, if one properly understands how this world exists according to modern science. Materialism has been scientifically disproved, and the only reason we had to believe that conciousness/mind ended at death was the assumption that we lived in a world made of and caused by matter and energy. That has been decisively proven false.
The afterlife is merely the continuation of fundamental, causal consciousness as it moves from one consciousness-caused environment to another, so to speak. This is why the dead, or people who have NDEs, often report that it is like "waking up," and that the afterlife feels "more real" than this world.
