The question of an afterlife has been asked for thousands of years and might even be the most thought about concept known to man. Man has always been on the quest to understand what happens when humans die, and understand the causes of paranormal phenomena that have been witnessed for thousands of years.
Within the realms of religion and regional cultures, perceptions of an afterlife were developed and handed down through the ages. Some of these beliefs still exist today. But there have always been free thinkers wanting to know more — some were put to death for their theories, while others wrote in secret of their personal beliefs in the afterlife.
Mediums were at times held in high esteem; at other times in history they were put to death for their gifts. Today, once more, they are assisting with research and intermingling with scientists and theologians. Their gifts have helped solve crimes and have educated people on how to receive signs from their deceased loved ones. In this guide you'll learn how personalities and traits come with you when the time comes to cross over. Most importantly, you'll learn that you are never alone.
Clinical death — when the heart, brain, and lungs cease to function — was until now considered the point where the consciousness and mind cease to function, too. Doctors have staunchly held that the brain and the mind are one and the same. But recent studies have shown that this belief may be a fallacy.
With the development of modern scientific technology, researchers have opened the door to new possibilities of the existence of another realm beyond the physical plane that is seen by the world today. The study of consciousness has shown the possibility of the continuing of life after death. Have you ever had déjà vu, like having experienced a specific moment before in time? Do you feel at times like you have a sixth sense? Do you have vivid dreams with visiting deceased relatives? These are questions dealing with consciousness and how your mind might be able to separate from the physical body.
Quantum physics and string theory have revolutionized ideas about what everything is made of, including man himself. The possibility of multiple dimensions interacting with this one is no longer science fiction but on the verge of becoming reality.
From the everyday events surrounding the witnessing of paranormal phenomena such as ghosts, near-death experiences, and deathbed visits, you will learn how today, more than ever before, people are talking openly about these happenings in their daily lives.
This evidence does not have to eliminate your current belief system. It can coexist with the faith or cultural beliefs you have followed throughout your life. Judge the evidence with an open mind, accept what you can, and contemplate the rest.
The Everything® Guide to Evidence of the Afterlife will bring you up-to-date scientific studies, theories, and evidence of the afterlife. You will be asked to open your minds to the possibilities like you have never been asked before. As the evidence is presented, ask yourself the question that French philosopher and Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin asked almost a century ago: Are you a human being having a spiritual experience, or a spiritual being having a human experience?
