Remember: Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed.
And know this: Nature, Life, the Universe, whatever you want to call it, is very, very conservative, conservative in the true sense of recycling
everything, wasting nothing. Consciousness is too resource intensive to waste.
Further, Nature abhors a vacuum: it will fill an empty space with something
Everything that lives has a "soul", i.e., a pattern of coherent energy that runs the body, whether that body is human, or a dog or an ant or a tree.
Presence of a self-sustaining energy pattern = alive, absence = dead.
Have you ever met a smart dog? Or known a cat that talked to you? Have you ever spoken with an elder tree (they might be some of the oldest souls on
the planet; it's really hard to get them even to acknowledge you, the very different time scales requires a lot of patience)? Anyway, each of these
examples have souls, too, and those can follow the very same path to enlightenment that you can, they're just not as far along (maybe), due to the
limitations of the wiring and capacity of the bodies they inhabit. So when a new baby is born, the nearest available "homeless" spirit is attracted
to it like iron filings to a magnet. Most of the time there's a "previously human" (uh-oh, language problems here: English isn't equipped with the
right words to properly discuss this) soul available to inhabit it, but if none are currently available, it will be filled with the (usually) most
[highly developed][best organized][strongest] spirit [locally] [available], a "promotion" of sorts, if you will. If there are none, a very rare
occurence, a new soul will generate, but it will be extremely weak and unorganized, and will likely dissipate when the body dies: have you ever met
someone truly clueless and very slow to learn, but functional otherwise? One good gauge of the age of a soul is to check out how they hold their
energy: I tend to see that more than the actual physical body, it makes them easier to recognize at a distance.
As for where we go when we die, the answer is nowhere...we tend to stay close to the body at first due to the fact that the spirit is quite literally
bound to the body and it takes some time for the energy bindings to [decay]. Remember: we are discussing physics here, not metaphysics or spiritual
mumbo-jumbo. Think of your spirit as a cloud of electrons that released from the physical body holds together for a brief time, then layer by layer it
is degraded by whatever the ambient energy flux is, quicker in some places than others. Once the [unbinding] is complete, however, a spirit can [move]
very far very fast. But the longer it stays outside a body the more is lost. Only the eldest and strongest can hold their pattern [tightly] enough to
spend any great length of time outside a body without losing too much to the [experience].
The levels of the soul described elsewhere seem to be a pretty accurate description that tallies with my experience, with this caveat: Jesus and
Buddha both would've kept their mouths shut had they been a bit older and wiser. They meant well, though.
And death itself is nothing to be afraid: it's just another body. What is to be most regretted is the loss of most of this lifetime's memories.
