That's a good question.
I have no idea for certain, but I can give you what I believe to be true.
From what I understand this is basically a school of learning. We come here with groups of "people", like soul groups, in ever expanding rings of
interactions between other groups of people. We learn all aspects of the universe and what we all are, as that as I understand it, is the ultimate
goal, to become fully realized beings of/in the creator.
We pass into and out of "the physical world" because I guess on the other side, when you can have whatever you want, you cannot learn certain
aspects of whatever it is we are supposed to be learning. The only way is to experience, which is what "physical life" is about. You have to know
pain in order to know pleasure, you have to know hate in order to know love, you have to understand darkness to fully appreciate light. The only way
to know is to experience.
You take away the ability to instantly create what you want and what happens?
You have to learn how to create.
I personally believe that we are all parts of the creator. Like sparks in a fire.
To me, this is all about the creator learning about itself in all it's aspects.
All things are a part of "God" for lack of a better term. And all things are a part of the experience.
But really, I don't know for certain.
The things that I do know are:
We live on after death
The spirit world DOES care about us and does pay attention,
and that we take what we know with us when we go back.
Anything else is speculation on my behalf.
