Well, here's how I look at this: It might sound a little Christiany, but I think there are a few useful nuggets in the Bible; I just put a huge twist
on it. So here we go:
So imagine a universe created an infinite size. It was full of God and angels, but they were not physical. They were non-corporeal. When some of
the angels rebelled, the spiritual universe began contracting, sucking the rebellious angels out of infinity and into a finite, shrinking space. The
angels that didn't rebel remain in the infinite space. Of course, God, being omniscient, knew beforehand that some of the angels would rebel. That
was part of his plan. There was a reason for it all to happen. A way was needed for the angels to become physical so they could all see each other
and be with each other.
The universe of the rebellious angels got smaller and smaller over billions of years until it contracted infinitely. Then the universe began
expanding (inflating), at which time physical matter came into existence. The angels saw all this happening and it was time to start the plan of
evolution. Their presence in this expanding universe drove the formation of the first organic matter into living things which, over the aeons, has
evolved to humans. Fallen angels being the original catalyst for physical life dictates that all other animals in the world are branches off the
human evolutionary line. Evolution isn't finished yet, but we evolved the way we did because of a spiritual/angelic catalyst. The goal of human
evolution is not only physical immortality, but astounding physical beauty with endless variety.
So the feeling of deja vu, in my view, is an event that reminds us that we're on the right track. Probably at the Big Bang, and at several times
since then, these fallen angels that are our own spirits have seen the future and they know what's in store for us. Moments of deja vu are like
checkpoints along the path. It's like we're being told, "Yes, we knew this was coming. You've already seen the story subconsciously. You're doing
fine. Just keep going."
The catch here, though, is that the fact remains that *we* are here. We are *not* in Heaven. If rebellious angels were kicked out of Heaven and we
are not in Heaven, what does that logically mean? No matter how much people on this planet think they might somehow be saved by a messiah, the fact
is, some of us are going to Hell, not because we necessarily did anything wrong here, but just because that's where we belong. We've all already lost
our place in Heaven and there's no return for us.
The good news is that Hell isn't a bad place, but it's better than Heaven. If anybody who belongs in Hell went Heaven, they'd be miserable. That's
why they rebelled in the first place. They found flaws in Heaven and in the ways of God.
Originally, I wrote the previous two paragraphs to state that every last person on this planet is going to Hell, but maybe that's not true. It could
be, but maybe not. If physical existence is for the good angels, too, then perhaps they've been incarnating as well, making the planet a mixture of
both. But then you can't really judge where a person is going by what they do. For example, I'm socially a good person, not because I want to go to
Heaven, but because I want to go to Hell. To me, it's a matter of getting what I want out of eternal life. I don't want to be a bad person and get
something I don't want for all eternity, so I try to be good so I will get what I want: A pathway straight to Hell for all eternity.
I hope that made some sense.
