There is such a thing as real truth. It, even if captured in a subjective narrative, transcends any
expression and survives all assaults. This truth remains ever undaunted. It remains undaunted when
confronted by the theories of the masses, undaunted when threatened by the sharp knife-edges of probability,
and yes it remains undaunted as it stands against the hopes and dreams, preconceptions and prejudices of
human beings. Is it a scary proposition? Even if so, its still true.
We learn by stepping out of ourselves and into our shadows. All of the knowledge that mankind has
garnered and will ever garner has come from a step into that cold, dark twin. Courage is the force we need to
break the dams that limit our knowledge. Thus courage is the force we need to expand: first the courage to
shift from our mental comfort zone into an obscurity and second the courage to imbibe the new knowledge
attained and to dispose of any displaced preconceptions. The most pernicious move in our intellectual career is
the one which leads us to cling to any single proposition so tightly that it may never be opposed. Before we ask
ourselves “what is the truth?”, we need first ask ourselves if we are really ready to accept it.
In the quest for truth, humanity, and very often individual human beings, have found themselves to be
the battlefield in an epic war between science and religion. While some have accused the division of being an
artificial dichotomy, it is definitely undeniable that many fundamental religious claims are in direct contradiction
with the observations of modern science. Could it be however, that what appears to be an obvious conflict, a
vicious fight between the two forces, in actuality is an elegant ballet misinterpreted by an ignorant perspective?
Such may be the reality as for the first time in human history cutting-edge physics has proven a nearly
ubiquitous religious concept: the hereafter.
It was by pure chance that an unusual document would make its way into my hands at about the end
of January of 2009. Donald Pursing, the elder brother of an acquaintance of mine, had recently returned to the
United States from Europe bringing with him an unusual souvenir. Pursing discovered the flimsy, mid-sized
spiral notebook in an inn in Porto, Portugal. There was nothing attractive or unique about it. In fact he reported
that he nearly ignored it and failed to do so merely out of boredom. Once opened however, he was addicted.
He brought it home and the souvenir made its way around his family eventually coming to Tyler,
Donald’s younger brother with whom I am more familiar. It was through Tyler that I learned of his brother’s
discovery. The contents of the notebook show it to be a diary chronicling a physicist ’s life between November
of 2008 and January of 2009. The entries record the events of a veiled physics operation and its immediate
effects on the author’s life. That which has brought the diary to publication lies with its claim that an afterlife has
been scientifically confirmed. While the author does divulge data concerning the instruments and institutions
that took part in the project, he does not disclose much information about the individuals involved especially
himself. Therefore the author is a John Doe.
I developed a strong affinity for the diary as Tyler expected I would. Suspending a project which I
myself was in the middle of, I rerouted my attention to the account and conducted investigations which all have
corroborated its validity. The account is now being brought to the public unadulterated, presented as an exact
photocopy of the original diary. Further investigations on the original document have commenced. Updates on
the investigation will be available at doesaccount.com.
Note: The first entry had been obviously torn out and reattached, but carries the latest date of all the other entries. This
suggests that the author mindfully returned to the front to formalize his writings by installing an introduction.
In the even of my failure in Geneva. If this account is unearthed before the world is flooded by flames then I have no doubt that it may be the match to ignite the global inferno.The irony almost begs laughter, but all I can mamnage now are tears. Yet no amount of tears can quench the monster's thirst. The cremation is inevitable.
He took it to Jonathan Epic, a retired professor of psychology and close friend of Pursing who in turn took the diary to forensic scientists where its legitimacy was investigated and established.
