Your life is a picture of what a baby goes through when it touches a hot stove and learns not to touch it again. We are born into the water of the
material world. The soul is tried by life in the Refiner's fire. It gains an experience here that cannot be gained by simply hearing or seeing.
Confucius said, "I hear I forget. I see I learn. I do and I understand."
A soul cannot be told a story and understand. The story must be experienced. Each 2000 years on earth, a different archetype of the same story is
expressed in this reality. The archetype story is experienced by the masses and then related in history. Each story ties into the next and further
expresses the overall plan for humanity. The goal is to initiate the soul for assertion and to find the emerald of life. The emerald to be found is
love for God and love for your neighbor. The universe is one. Once we appreciate our place, we are then given the next vehicle for development.
We are made 'in' the image of God. The image is reality. We are artificial consciousness. Compare this to the Sims. The difference is, we are
learning as we go along. The universe is real to us, but a projection from God. Our consciousness is an expression of God's Nous. We receive the
gift of Nous and then gain Gnosis as we go along. If mankind ever develops this degree of reality in the silicone environment, the life there will
need to be taught in the same manner. Anything else is merely a remote controlled vehicle in a virtual world. Jesus was the word (LOGOS) expressed
in the material realm.
The earth is a womb of development. Your body is a placenta, attached by the silver cord.
6 Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed,[a]
Or the golden bowl is broken,
Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain,
Or the wheel broken at the well.
7 Then the dust will return to the earth as it was,
And the spirit will return to God who gave it.
The body is essentially a bio-mechanical vehicle to sense the material world. Your next vessel for sensing the kingdom of God will most likely be
much more advanced than the one you currently move around in. The Bible says that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. This is true.
We cannot leave our womb without taking the earth with us into space (Heaven).
In John 3, you can read that we are born again into the water if we do not find the spirit. We are blown by the wind somewhere different each time
our soul travels to earth. When we are born again of water and of spirit (Finding Atonement or At-One-Ment), we escape this realm for the next. We
are first baptized into the water. The point is finding salvation--Love of God and love for even your enemy. This is the main test of the learning
The Bible is the key to understanding. Search wherever you like, you will return again to the message of the Bible. All roads lead from and then
back to the Bible. It is the guidebook for this realm.
Look at it this way: An oak tree is folded up in the acorn. The essence in the acorn that unfolds into the tree is information. This information
can be saved or lost. A dead acorn rots back to the soil. A live acorn expresses itself in the form of the tree. The information can be retained
and copied. Our soul is folded into the seed that we came from.
Nothing about God, salvation, being born again, or the process of saving and being lost should be foreign to our day and age. We are the expression
of this creativity. All of creation copies and repeats. You are a divine being riding along in the ultimate vehicle of 50 trillion cells. You body
is a universe that you command. Choices.
How do we explain physics? Time, Space, Matter and Energy. In the beginning (TIME), God created the heavens (Space) and the Earth (Matter). Let
there be light (Energy). John 1 says that, "In the Beginning was the WORD..." This word (wave) created reality from the four parts of creation
above. All particles (light) have an associated wave (Word or streaming information). This is what projects reality to the observer. The observer
collapses the indeterminate wave of probability from the ALL that is God. God is the infinity of possibility at rest. We are in movement as we draw
from the infinity.

I've explored the notion of a soul, the afterlife, ego and the presence/absence and like studying why we exist, how we got here, what was before the
supposed big bang, is there even an afterlife, why we endure Earth...etc
This made me wonder about a few things, particularly why are we here? Since were in the philosophy and metaphysics forum I feel the subject of
assuming a perfect afterlife not too farfetched. Thus, let's assume that we incarnate in bodies for experience. I've seen that notion brought up many
times by people who have had NDE's or AP's...etc.
Thus, we're here on Earth. We keep gaining experience, for what reason I have no idea. Some will argue it's to graduate to the 4th density. Others
will say we come here to bring positivity to this negative world. Others say it's experience because the other side is a perfect place where you can't
experience negativity. The latter seems to be the most prominent and aligns with my thoughts. Thus for the sake of this argument I'm going to further
define that we're assuming life on this Earth to be a controlled fashion where we choose to experience what we want.
What reason is there ever to come down here?
Sure, we make friends, share the love...etc; but it all comes at a price. None of us come down here to be born into a king's family and experience
luxury 24/7 and die of old age. Instead we come down here to get our hearts broken, endure misery, die slowly and painfully while being stung with
mental and emotional stress beyond belief. Why? Why so much pain? Why not have a world with more positivity so this kind of stuff is endured.
One question that blows my mind if my assumptions are true is why people come down here to be enslaved for 50 years, and then die. Why do people come
down here to be hacked up slowly into pieces (try pricking your finger with a knife and then imagining what I described [yes, hyperbole somewhat ]).
From a logical standpoint I just don't understand.
We come here to experience misery because there is none on the other side?
Why did we come here then?
Do we naturally at a higher level enjoy pain?
Why would I come down here to make more good if I can just have an infinite amount on the 'other side', especially when the sole reason people come
down here is to experience negativity then? Am I hindering them by being nice?
