Yeah, Script, but that's so boring. It's especially boring if you're right! So why not indulge in a little speculation knowing we'll probably be
wrong, but what the hey. There may be a glimmer of truth to emerge from the discussion, some food for thought.
What if both science and religion have got it all wrong? What if there IS a 'heaven' (notice the quotes), but it isn't filled with God, Jesus,
angels, and black-eyed virgins, but it is filled with a higher-vibration of people like us who have 'shed' our earth bodies for the next realm?
Science is in many ways a reaction against mysticism. Where the ancients would blame little devils for making them sick, science can explain it is
actually bacteria and viruses, find 'miracle' anti-bacterial cures, and prove its worth. Bravo! The materialistic approach works! And it's no
wonder science balks at weirdo explanations of astral planes, reincarnation, and other mumbo jumbo that is unexplained. Yet when you get to the
fringes of scientific explanation, it's pretty weird there, too. The "Many Worlds' theory? Quantum mechanics and string theory? Pretty weird stuff,
too! But science has mumbo jumbo equations to prove it where religion only has mumbo jumbo 'faith,' whatever that is.
So the speculation is that there is another higher plane that science simply has not yet figured out. Religions pay attention to the hints that it
exists, but put false trappings around it that turn off scientists, so it is still unrecognized. But the ET guys--they've figured it out! Not only
that, they're in both places and, just as Strieber describes, they interact with us there, too. They have often been reported saying, "science and
religion merge at a certain point and you won't understand capital "R" Reality until you allow the possibility." So when science allows the
possibility that this sort of scenario can explain Reality, we'll start to get somewhere.
As long as we continue to resist the possibility, we'll be stuck on Earth thinking we do die, until it is proven by our continued consciousness that
we don't, at which point it will be too late to do anything about it, at least this time around.
Total abject speculation, but a lot more fun than just kicking the bucket.
