From the point of view of nondeterminism, the chain that keeps us from moving on in cosmic evolution is our obsession with our ego.You can't mention sol without thinking of life after death. Here we say life to mean identity. Our ego impacts the information state of the larger existense. During the process of death as people report who have a near death experience's, they experience their impact on others as others do. The more "stuck on" their identity, the kind of people who we say don't care about others because they can't identify with someone else, the kind at extreme we call sociopaths, or evil when they come back seem more "shook up" Because they know awareness from a strong ego centric point, any other perspective is resisted. But as they are exposed to other information, their ego, their perspective, also includes an awareness of what others felt because of them. "Judgement" is not something imposed on us. It's something we experience from the perspective of another's identity.
I think animals have this same sense of identity.But it's viewpoint is fixed in events as they unfold. It can't create "simulations" of possible future's. Instinct at this level is hard wired behavior, like nest building, migration, etc. A bird doesn't migrate because it understands in the future it will get cold. It does so because it's one aspect of it's behavior. Someone like me who works in a world of theory, analysis, proof, and per review does not have a conflict with this concept. I can't see, or hear x-rays but know they exist because I see them through the "filter" of machines. I believe all creation is information. As I am now, I lack the ability to comprehend this greater landscape. It doesn't threaten my scientific rationalism. It just tells me theres more then I understand. Wonder begins with self reflection.

2. Jesus said,
“Let him who seeks.
until he finds.
When he finds,
he will become troubled.
When he becomes troubled,
he will be astonished,
and he will rule over The All.”
3. Jesus said,
“If those who lead you say to you,
See, The Kingdom is in the sky,
then the birds will precede you.
If they say to you,
It is in the sea,
then the fish will precede you.
Rather, The Kingdom is inside
you, and it is outside.
When you come to know yourselves,
then you will become known,
and you will realise that it is you
who are the sons of The Living Father.
If you will not know yourselves,
you dwell in poverty
and it is you who are that poverty.”
77. Jesus said,
“It is I who Am The LIGHT
which is above them all.
It is I who Am The All.
From Me did The All come forth,
and unto Me did The All extend.
Split a piece of wood,
and I am there.
Lift up the stone,
and you Will Find Me there.”
“Shamanism encompasses the belief that shamans are intermediaries or messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. Shamans are said to treat ailments/illness by mending the soul. Alleviating traumas affecting the soul/spirit restores the physical body of the individual to balance and wholeness. The shaman also enters supernatural realms or dimensions to obtain solutions to problems afflicting the community. Shamans may visit other worlds/dimensions to bring guidance to misguided souls and to ameliorate illnesses of the human soul caused by foreign elements. The shaman operates primarily within the spiritual world, which in turn affects the human world. The restoration of balance results in the elimination of the ailment.
