If we cant detect it, is it safe to say that it most likely doesnt exist? Sorry, this is just the way my mind works. Free-will is also hard for me to understand, or how a person could be held fully accountable for their actions in some type of afterlife. I believe that genetics and the environment one grows up in dictate their actions, I dont see anything free about that. I cant understand how you came to believe that there are some type of absolute truths, its just non-sensical to me. How do you know they are true? Could you prove it? Or does it just make sense to you and feel good?

hi masqua, ill try and compare a bit of this to some of my beliefs.
in part 2. it says everything is connected, i would say things are connected to other things around them or a likened frequency, but not in the way that everything is connected together.
(frequency fluctuates depending on situation and mood responses etc, so one minute you can have positive flowing through then if you get angry you will line up to negatives etc).
so i would disagree and say everything is not connected together, for one thing a individuals soul is individual.
