The fundamental question of human existence is this: who and what are human beings? The scientific community is confident that we are only the latest iteration of an evolutionary process that goes back to living cells appearing in primordial soup; while Christians see us as the fallen and inadequate creations of a stern Godhead.
Neither of these beliefs-based views of human nature has ever made sense. Neither has any explanation for the complexities of human experience, for our awareness, emotions, and aspirations. And what may be worse, neither has any corrective nor any predictive power. We want to know who and what we are not so much so we can dwell in our past, but rather so we can improve our present and begin to perfect our future.
Both of our most trusted institutions base their assumptions in faulty core
beliefs. Christianity’s supposition that we must be evil is rooted in Adam’s Biblical sin – even the nature of which is still debated – which got him cast out of the Garden of Eden. Mainstream science, on the other hand, remains enmired in materialism, so it is incapable of making any sense of human nature beyond the study of our anatomy.
So we are nowhere. The Christian explanation makes you wonder how God could have made the mistake of creating us, while the scientific theories remain so lacking that they cannot even be called basic science. For example, recent scientific interpretations of the same ten-thousand-year-old massacre site argue both that at last it proves that warfare is innate to us, and that actually it proves precisely the opposite! So, which is it? Are we warriors by nature, or is warfare a recent cultural artifact? We study photographs of primitive people, as little touched by civilization as possible, hoping to see somehow – perhaps in their eyes – the answer to humankind’s most basic question.
At our core, who and what are human beings?
You will be relieved to learn that at last the answer to our age-old question is emerging. And it comes from what both science and Christianity would consider to be an unlikely source. We who have spent our lives studying nearly two hundred years of abundant and consistent afterlife evidence have learned the following facts, all of which will soon be such common knowledge that they will be taught in grade schools:
The fact that mainstream science remains so clueless about the nature of reality has turned the venerable Scientific American into little more than a humor magazine. Every month we find more references there to research and theories being ardently developed in the airless heat of a materialist hothouse, so we know they are going to be yet more dead-ends. While some in other fields not burdened by materialism are beginning to use consciousness tools as the powerful sources of help that they are, my favorite magazine remains stuck with notions that easily could be either refined or exploded if scientists finally gave up on materialism as just a century-long blind alley. Oh, the discoveries soon to come once scientists are allowed to study reality! For example, the question of whether we have free will is one that materialist science doesn’t even have the tools to investigate; but the whole question will be readily answered once scientists are allowed to study how vast and complex our eternal minds really are, and how little of them we can consciously access while we are briefly in these bodies.
The truth about who and what you are is glorious!
You are one with eternal Mind at its highest vibration. You are powerful. You are eternal. You are, in your essence, perfect love.
