As we attempt to make ever better sense of what actually is going on, the hardest concept for most of us to grasp is the fact that in nearly all of reality there is no objective time or space. I’m more used to it now, and I think I begin to understand the science of it, but still the effects of it can boggle!
Those we used to think were dead find their lack of space and time quite freeing. For decades I was mystified by the way the dead could think themselves to the other side of the world, or even to the planet of a distant star, and they would be there in less than an eye-blink. In the afterlife things look and feel solid, our bodies seem to be in every way real, and there is a perception of visual distance… but still, people tell us they can look at a mountain range across what seems to be fifty miles of distance and make out the veins in every leaf on every tree on every one of its foothills. It was really only when we began to get good quantum-physics-for-dummies books in the first years of this century that it was possible for afterlife researchers to begin to make sense of all of this. It’s simple, really.
The only thing that exists is consciousness energy. Even what we think of as matter is just energy at a lower rate of vibration. As Albert Einstein said, “Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” And Max Planck agreed. He said, “As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”
Reality is composed of consciousness energy in an infinite range of vibratory rates, very much as if your mind were a television set with an infinite range of channels. It is only this material-seeming universe – which exists at what we think is the lowest vibratory rate – that is governed by a mathematics-based, clockwork form of physics. In the rest of reality, which is most of reality, the only physics is consciousness-based. So it is only in this material-seeming reality that time and space seem to exist at all! In all the infinite levels of reality beyond this one, the illusory matter is mind-created, all forms of energy are also mind-created, and time and space can exist or not and in whatever way your mind might like.
You will have to internalize these concepts if you hope to make sense of what is going on. Some of the implications are astounding. For example:
To claim and own and stand at last upon your status as an eternal being is the very foundation of human joy. And getting yourself past the notion that time and space are objectively real turns out to be its indispensable beginning!
