Susan: It seems to me that the word 'interpretation' is always the key word required here. Because I have learnt more and more about how the mind works, about how, for instance, peripheral vision and peripheral hearing have during the whole of every person's life provided trillions of bits of information, the brain uses all of them to compose, arrange, re-arrange again and again, thoughts, ideas and images. Everyone has experiences all the time, it is their interpretation of them, influenced by their minds' inputs, that makes them think they are influenced by any kind of spirit/god/etc.


My reply: Here is what I think is wrong with your conclusions. First off, Thomas Edison said we as human beings only understand 1 millionth of one percent about anything (not a direct quote, but something close to that). From the film "What the bleep do we know" - addressing visual perception - "the eye takes in about 400,000 bits of information anytime we look out at the world, but by the time our brain and eyes filter out information (or in my mind, edits out everything we do not understand) only 2000 bits of info are received" (again, not an exact quote). So, what is it we are not seeing or understanding - our dead grandparents lingering nearby perhaps, guardian angels, who knows. I'm in the camp with Edison, I think there is so much more to know and the knowledge will change us as a species, hopefully in a way that will keep our home planet healthy. I pretty much see that as a goal of evolution - to expand our knowledge and learn how to operate in a "kind" way in the universe or multi-verse.
But, from what I perceive in the many replies I've seen of yours over many years, is that everything is KNOWN, period, that's the end of it. I could be wrong about you, of course, and frankly I don't have a problem with your opinions and in no way think you are a bad person.

Susan: "which only generations of reality will help to move"

My reply: reality is flexible, but you would have to understand something about spirit to understand that. Personally, I think Einstein was aware of this. There is plenty of evidence out there that a great deal of science is correct, however, it is always being tweaked with new incoming info and investigations. Thus our understanding is constantly evolving, as are our bodies. Science has to develop ways to test the ethereal, but as long as they are in denial that it exists...…..
