Many years scientists have explored the possibility of life after death and how consciousness is maintained in the cosmos after we leave our physical body.
In the last decade, the number of people having out-of-body experiences (me included) has hugely increased. This is the reason why science is so curious about finding the answer to this mystery.
A man named Todd Acamesis claims that he has been having out-of-body experiences for 42 years, ever since he had a near death experience when he was a five year old child.
Out-of-body experiences are those in which one feels as if s/he is floating outside his/her body. You can see your external body and its surroundings while having such an experience. Such experiences can be an outcome of meditation, a near-death experience, or spiritual plant medicine, such as Ayahuasca or Psilocybin Mushrooms.
At the 27th annual Glastonbury Symposium, a conference held in the Somerset town, the mystery behind these out-of-body experiences was discussed by researchers, authors and other experts on the subject. The discussion also included topics surrounding paranormal activities, conspiracy theories, alternative thought, to new age philosophies.
Todd Acamesis also attended the Symposium. He teaches out-of-body exploration to those who are interested. Upon this subject Acamesis said, “Like with anything in life, the distinct thing is to be clear about what you want to do.” He believes and practices in a form of OBE known as Astral Projection. It is a willful separation of the soul, or our astral body from the physical body, which can travel across the Universe.
Up to date, there is no scientific evidence which can prove astral projection to be true. The many claims made by people like Acamesis remain a matter of belief. Those who want to, will believe it, while others will not.
According to Mr. Acamesis:
“If you know the purpose of why you are doing it and the ritual side – astral projection – from my own view we are dealing with metaphors and what explains existence. My belief state changes rapidly. I am no longer looking at physical reality. It is not just out of the body, we are consciousness. We are very grounded in this reality, but we are not exclusively physical bodies.”
He has also made claims about walking through walls while travelling out-of-body and exploring buildings via “remote viewing”. All this could be possible because reality is multidimensional, and unknown possibilities lie in front of us. Acamesis has a theory that our “nonphysical minds” are all interconnected through a massive human consciousness network, i.e. “all minds are joined – interconnected on a certain level.”
According to Dr. Jim Tuccker, author of Life After Life: A Scientific Investigation of Children’s Memories of Previous Lives, reincarnation is real because consciousness is energy on the subatomic level, which is held in our body during life, and is not a part of it.
Scientists have also explored how the soul does not die and returns to the Universe. Scientists believe that the human brain is in fact a ‘biological computer’, and the ‘consciousness of humans’ can be considered as a program run by the quantum computer located inside the brain that continues to exist after death.
