“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”– Philosopher Soren Kierkegaard
Having spent decades studying more than 150 years of abundant and consistent communications from the dead, it astonishes me to see how hard people who consider themselves to be defenders of science still are fighting against the possibility that any of this might be true. They never investigate anything! How can people with scientific training altogether refuse to consider whole categories of documented phenomena that have real-world effects? The problem seems to be that they are fearful that what they might find could disrupt their scientific assumptions and perhaps even derail their careers. That’s it? That’s their problem? And they still call themselves scientists?
I am a business lawyer. I had no particular belief system to support when I started this investigation, nor do I have one now. I remain skeptical of every new afterlife-related detail, but at least I do investigate things! I look for answers. And after I have assembled enough evidence of all stripes to draw a rational conclusion, I draw that conclusion and explain where it came from. What these scientific Luddites do is to refuse to investigate anything that doesn’t fit their predetermined beliefs. They even presume to post on the Internet flat lies about the afterlife evidence and about those who would investigate the evidence. Have they no self-awareness at all?
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Ignoring the afterlife evidence worked amazingly well throughout the twentieth century. If scientists won’t talk about something, and if the three network channels plus PBS won’t cover it, then it must not exist. But the Internet has dramatically increased the public’s access to information of all kinds, and in the area of afterlife evidence and afterlife-related science the effect of the Internet has been explosive. Just as Baby Boomers are entering the what’s-next stage of their lives and glimpsing death on the horizon, there is a flood of fresh afterlife-related information waiting for them.
”I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.” – Physicist Max Planck, winner of the 1918 Nobel Prize for Quantum Physics
We are coming to see, too, that cutting-edge science supports what the afterlife evidence tells us is true. It all fits together so beautifully! Quantum physics is a kind of plug that connects the physics operating in the areas of reality that we enter at death with the physics that functions only in this material universe. The earliest quantum physicists realized that consciousness is primary. Scientists today still revere these folks! Why won’t they listen to them? Max Planck and his fellows knew a hundred years ago that the math-based, clockwork model of physics that is still so beloved of mainstream science is insufficient to explain what we know about reality, even if we ignore the afterlife evidence altogether.
So at this point we are somewhere between the “laugh at you” and “fight you” stages of Gandhi’s formulation. And as the “fight you” stage intensifies, it seems clear that mainstream scientific apologists are going to fight to their own bitter end, until the moment when we reach a tipping point in the public’s understanding. Awareness of the truth is spreading. At some point there will be one new bit of evidence – perhaps a telephone for talking with the dead – that is so popular, and so undeniable, that all the lying on earth by scientific apologists won’t be able to save mainstream science from looking supremely foolish. And not only foolish, but venal. If mainstream scientists had at any point in the past hundred years been willing to open their minds enough to investigate the afterlife evidence, the truth could have been known by everyone long since. And the fearful and bereaved could have been spared so much pain.
Still, now we have every reason for cheer. It has taken us much too long to get here, but in this new century truth will win.
