Nobody knows for sure. Ah yes, the last disingenuous refuge of hope. The last desperate clinging and grasping at the straw to keep the fading light
alive. Nobody knows for sure. In statistical terms we are sure. Amount of proof beyond all reasonable doubt for afterlife 0%; amount of proof for no
afterlife based on the previous computation 100%.
As one earlier poster aptly demonstrated, out of all the billions of people whom have ever lived and died, not one has returned to provide undeniable
proof of a continued existence following physical death. By that fact alone we could assume that there is no afterlife, but I think taking a position
of assumption is wrong and unfair. It is too dismissive, and probably not a little arrogant to do so. For a better, more informed opinion it is
advantageous to delve into the anecdotal references that seek to support the conclusion that there is an afterlife.
If we take the anecdotes and the massive library of research available at face value, our conclusion can be nothing but full support for afterlife,
but that would be taking the same assumptive position against it, which I decried against earlier. No. The original position I took, the one I already
accepted, was to allow for the afterlife, but the question I posed to myself was...how does it work? What are (or would be) the energy mechanisms
involved to make it all function. We certainly know the energy mechanisms required to make the physical form function and sustain itself during
physical life, similar mechanistic principles (allbeit on a more subtle and ephemeral level) would apply for afterlife.
One cannot suspend nature's laws of energy to suit one's argument for or against afterlife. If moving from physical life environment to the more
(probable) subtle and refined afterlife environment was just a matter of frequency adaption, we would still be able to detect the subtle transference.
Believe it not, there is a factual and experimental hint of energy release at physical death that all organisms give off at the moment of death. It is
a very real phenomenon, and it is called the 'light shout' or necrotic radiation...firstly:
The above link ponders on the question of data (or information) that the light shout might contain, afterall, the shift in frequency from physical
life to afterlife would most certainly require a transferance of data, particularly memory data...secondly:
When you first click on the link, a separate window will appear over the main website providing a sample of the book that can be bought...and
Necrotic radiation is the only significant phenomenon that might loosely be applied to any particular aspect of early-stage afterlife. It doesn't
prove afterlife, no more so than NDE proves afterlife, but it does give an energy release mechanism at the time of physical death. The question to ask
is to what end has nature provided this energy release? Why this particular way, rather than a non-detectable dissolution? If afterlife is real, you
have to discuss energy mechanisms, because that is the route by which it will be realised and accepted.
