Dating after the death of a girlfriend
But, if you are open to some ideas that are intriguing, it might be valuable to read a bit about the ongoing debate of life after death before completely making up your mind.I became fascinated by this topic after attending a Noetic Sciences conference that I wrote about in my last post. Eben Alexander is the author of Proof of Heaven—A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife. Alexander speak twice during the 3-day event, a number of related topics made the subject irresistible.Of primary importance were two main questions: 1) Does consciousness exist separate from the body or is it merely a biological or chemical result of the brain?2) Is life a material and limited manifestation, or actually an eternal quantum experience that never begins and never ends?Ultimately, assuming you care in the first place, how any person then answers those two questions, largely determines whether you open the door or slam it shut on any further discussion about eternal life.
Ever had a conversation with someone and realized that no matter what you said, there was no way your companion would grasp what you were trying to say?
One time I was talking excitedly to my nephew Mark about some studies I had recently uncovered about how our minds work.
In complete seriousness Mark stopped me and said, “Studies, oh you can’t believe studies like that.” In that moment the conversation ended before it began.
With that said, if you are convinced that life is finite and there is no heaven or any kind of existence beyond the physical, chances are good that nothing I can write will make any difference.
But I’m definitely skeptical about whether a “heavenly” location exists as described by anyone, including Dr. I found his description a bit too traditionally religious for my taste and prefer a more cosmic and holistic approach to such questions.And while I will humbly acknowledge that I am as guilty of confirmation bias as much as anyone, I spent the last couple of days researching what I believe are fascinating tidbits of information that both support—and argue against—a belief in both of my earlier questions.
