THE ILLUSION OF DEATH

If I could collect one tiny snippet of truth each time I heard the question: “Is there more to life than this?” then I would be a truly wise person indeed. It deserves a simple explanation now that we question our origin more than ever before. It seems that life is administered so unfairly whilst some folk cruise along with no problems and others ride the roller coaster.

I don’t have the answer as to why there is so much diversity between our lives. Neither does anyone else for that matter, although some may think that they do on account of their faith or belief structure. It’s my opinion that if we believe with honesty and integrity, a truth somehow will manifest.

Please allow me to broach on the subject of death. What exactly is it? As an illusion it doesn’t exist; it never has. However, as we witness people dying, what else are we to think? Something happens at death where animation ceases, leaving an eerie stillness, at least from the physical point of view. Things seem different, but what has really happened? To find out, we must look to biophysics and science, breaking down our bodies to the smallest physical component.

We’ve heard how scientists spent years trying to ‘split’ the atom. The study of radioactivity led to the realization that one kind of atom may change into another, so must be made of smaller parts. It was discovered the heavy radioactive element of uranium spontaneously splits itself into a lighter nucleus and a very light helium nucleus; hence the uranium atom and the subsequent creation of the atom bomb.

The variables that dictate the type of atom depend on its nucleus, neutrons, protons and electrons. For the purpose of this article, I refer to those atoms that make us what we are as human beings. They are indestructible and are the smallest component responsible for our physical make up.

From conception, additional atoms are acquired to help build our bodies. As an embryo, our mother, via her biological process, feeds them to us and as we grow after birth, the Earth and the Universe, which has provided every atom that constitutes our physical make up, continue to supply them. Our world and all its life forms, including us, are made from nothing else. It may seem strange that all things appear so different to one another, but this is due to how the atom is composed and how it formulates into larger structures. At some stage, life is introduced and this is where many people refuse to give logic priority over their beliefs.

For example, and not wanting to be drawn into some kind of disagreement regarding creation, let’s assume that intelligence is responsible for putting things together, including the atom. I’m well aware of the Darwin theory, holding evolution responsible. The Creationists think an almighty being is the answer and there are Interventionists who believe extra terrestrial forces are our creators.

It doesn’t end here, except to say that something has put things into place and this is how we see ourselves today. Life has origin, so maybe we should leave it at that for the time being. Our mind and body are quite separate from one another, and although they can blend for the purpose of physical existence, it is our brain that co-ordinates the two. Elements, cells and molecules constitute the intelligent make up of our bodies and create what we are. Once we realise how our feeling presence (our mind and spirit) converge into a state of physical being, will be the day when true enlightenment begins to enter our consciousness.

Ask the questions: Can we exist without the physical body? If so, how is this possible? Is the all-feeling, all-touching, tangible, physical world all there is? We must return to science and biophysics for answers. When you see pictures on television or listen to sound on radio, it is unlikely you would question their origin. Yet these phenomena are not part of the physical world. They are bursts of energy or frequencies that have resonance, or vibration. In other words these are dimensions that are separate from the one that we have come to know.

Energy is the source of all dimensional levels and each different level houses consciousness. When daydreaming in your armchair, your thoughts, which are living bursts of energy, vibrate at a different level to that of your physical body. Therefore they exist in different dimensions, even though you are aware of both your body and your dreams simultaneously.

Try to imagine countless dimensions or levels of existence. Even if you can’t, your consciousness, of which you are physically aware, must exist beyond the boundaries of coherence and has probably done so before your present physical state. If you find this hard to accept, ask yourself: did you begin to exist the day you were born or conceived? How can that be? One day, technology and science will reveal all in a way that will be totally understandable and, hopefully, acceptable.

When dreaming, you are experiencing something and possibly dismissing it as imagination. Even this must have origin. It is just another state of consciousness, manifesting in one of the different levels of vibrations or dimensions. You can also experience some of these by way of your thoughts and emotions.

These phenomena resonate at different rates of frequency. The transmission of radio /TV, radar/sonar, ultra violet /infrared, your cell phones etc, have their dimensional levels which enable them to manifest in the physical world. No one will argue their existence because we witness and experience them in the here-and-now and are accepted as perfectly normal, fitting into our everyday lives. So why be surprised to be told that your thoughts have frequency?

It may appear strange to hear the atomic structure of your body being described as indestructible, which it is. What is destructible is its molecular make up, and this is the key to my statement that you cannot die. It is not the point of this article to stress where and how you may have existed before coming into this present life, but simply to show you that there is no such thing as death. There is only change and the physical body is your host whilst experiencing earthly life until that change occurs.

Back to the atom and cells/molecules mentioned earlier. The elements are responsible for physical matter. The atom is the smallest part of an element, which has the same characteristics. The molecule is the smallest part of a compound, which is a combination of atoms, and forms life’s building blocks. The element can’t be separated into different substances. Once a cellular structure is formed, the endless formulation of molecular building blocks moulds them into different things. This is how plants and animals are made and we are no exception.

Everything physical is constructed via molecular geometry and the codes or programmes responsible are transmitted via electromagnetic and magneto-electric fields. The difference with plants and animals, especially humans, is that life is introduced whereby this mathematical, molecular make up becomes animated. Humans go one step further due to self-awareness and free will. It is the introduction of life that perplexes and yet stimulates our thought processes to reach beyond the paradox that constitutes life and death.

We’ve all heard about DNA, which is a code of life, and no two are alike. This is a structured and disciplined blueprint dictating how our bodies grow via the programmed molecular make up designed for each individual. I mentioned the source of all things, only to accept and not analyse. Without source, we would not exist. How this programming comes into effect and is responsible for what we are is now beginning to unfold as scientists capitalise on the findings of quantum physics and their relation to thought and energy.

As we grow, our planet supplies all the atoms that constitute our make up. However, they change quite regularly. In fact you are literally not the same physical person compared to a year or so ago. Cells are replaced quite frequently, like for like, regardless of condition and some are replaced quicker than others, depending on the organs and tissues involved. The big drawback is that as cells are eliminated and replaced, by the time we have reached the tender age of 20 or so, the process of supply slows down whilst the elimination process increases.

There comes a time when the molecular structure holding our cells together will not sustain the pattern of programming that our DNA has mapped out for us. This means human form can not continue in a physical environment. The ageing process, illness, accident or other reasons are factors. As the molecular structure breaks down, each cell reverts to its elemental state and its composing atoms return to Mother Earth. Within that breaking-down process the real us, meaning our consciousness, leaves this changing formula, no longer requiring the accommodating body to experience physical life. Once again, science may one day reveal whether this is by [subconscious] choice or design.

Each and every atom that has been responsible for your body’s growth can be accounted for during the period of your earth life. It has been around since the dawn of physical time and replaced, via the cellular structure, and returned to the earth in proportionate amounts so as to help sustain your life. Look at the dust content in the home which is mostly composed of dead skin and you’ll see my point. At the latter stages, whereby more cells break down to atoms, there comes a time when the body no longer functions as a biological unit. Cellular breakdown becomes rapid and each atom eventually returns to the earth; ‘ashes to ashes, dust to dust’. Only change has occurred here and yet nothing, repeat nothing has died. Our consciousness somehow remains constant, and as it leaves the physical body so it must also have been introduced at the conception or birth of your physical life.

Where we come from and where we are going is food for thought and the answers may rest with those who strive to break down the secrets of life that have eluded us for so many, many centuries. In the meantime, look forward and be positive, because life really does go on. To those who have lost friends and loved ones; don’t despair because the unity of minds you have shared still exists. Perhaps their only sorrow is to realise the way that you interpret their departure as something being finite.

Arthur C. Clarke comes to mind when he referred to the quotation by Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovski, the Russian Pioneer in rocket and space science, who said: “The Earth is the cradle of the mind, but you cannot stay in the cradle for ever.”

    Thank you for this article. if i would not of read this, i would still be “what if” and becoming sad. I often wonder also if deceased family members are still around atomically and consciously helping me and my family through tough times, like spiritual guides. Again..thanks.

    Greetings Mike San

    I like what you write my friend. As you know my feelings follow a similar path with my Belief in Ki. We began as part of it and will once again be part of it. Everything nothing and all that is in between

    Yours as ever in the spirit of Budo

    Mike
