Schrodinger’s Ghosts – Belief in Ghosts and The Big Bang
Instead of arguing against us, please experiment with trying to find arguments which may agree with us. Instead of imagining how what we say cannot possibly be true, please first try to imagine, with us, how what we say here may really be true.
All people unconsciously defend what they believe to be true. It is not possible to accept something dissimilar to what you believe if you allow your unconscious defense mechanisms to distort our messages here in order to suit the cultural prerogatives your human operant-conditioning has been programmed to defend.
Your cultural prerogatives lie to you. We hope to help you set yourself free.
Most folks like a good ghost story, but are ghosts real?
In a movement that may be more fraud than fact, ghost hunters have arisen in our television programs in unprecedented numbers.
But what should we really believe about ghosts or the stories told by ghost hunters?
Until recently, science has appeared to stand against everything supernatural; if we believe some people, science may stand against everything spiritual or religious as well.
More recently, science now appears to be used to support everything from hauntings to psionic talents to old testament tales.
Alas, anyone can pretend to be scientific well enough to fool all too many people; pseudo-science is particularly crafty at fooling television audiences, particularly if the television program producers are collaborating with their network hosts to deliberately foster deceit.
We will leave whether there is collusion between fraudulent program producers and their television networks for someone else to examine, the networks may be innocent. Our interest might be more along the lines of whether the programs themselves are as innocent as the networks who broadcast these programs might be.
The anecdotal evidence in favor of the existence of ghosts is tremendous, stupendous, and potentially overwhelming.
Nearly every family has a ghost story or knows a family with a ghost story.
Descriptions of ghosts follow cultural paradigms both in their appearances and in their powers; some ghosts are attributed with deadly abilities while others are scarcely able to make themselves known to the visitors of the places they haunt.
Ghost enthusiasts will already have catalogued a variety of characteristics they associate with ghosts and the places they haunt; it is not our purpose to go into those details here.
What we wish to present is a plenum theory regarding ghosts and what they may really be.
The plenum might be considered an imaginary or cognitive artifact that defines the ultimate collection of all created universes including all parallel dimensions or alternate realities.
Observable cosmological architecture scales up beyond galaxies to constellations of galaxies and nets of constellations of galaxies and perhaps beyond these as well, until we reach the background radiation of the big bang. This background radiation might be said to define the limits of our immediate knowable universes.
Beyond this background radiation it is believed there are more universes, universes that may, perhaps, be similar to our own.
Variations in the temperature of the background radiation show patterns from which it appears to be possible to deduce how our universe was formed.
So how are theories about the creation of our universes related to ghosts?
Ghosts may really be the products of sensitive people communicating across parallel dimensions of space-time, dimensions supported by mathematics with quantum theory; it is the sum of these alternate reality, parallel dimensional universes that is called the plenum.
The plenum may appear to be as real to the best scientists of our age as ghosts may be to the mostly lay-people (inexperienced observers) who witness them.
Alas, the cognitive tools of perception required to see the plenum are far more difficult to acquire than are the cognitive tools required to see ghosts.
Nonetheless, belief in the plenum is gaining favor as scientific investigation further explores and begins to verify the underlying theories describing plenum architecture.
Now we step off, away from science per se, and into our own personal domain of knowledge, knowledge related to our personal experiences; knowledge which we should preface.
What we say must be regarded skeptically, at best, until readers can work through the many reasonable objections to be made. Skepticism is a healthy approach, although even skepticism can be taken to an unhealthy extreme in which the skeptic becomes paralyzed by indecision, not knowing who or what to trust.
What we say can only be our personal opinion until our readers have experiences of their own with which to begin to attempt to verify any possible truth values for our statements.
What we say is from our personal experience, an experience that has lasted many lifetimes, across thousands of generations, a type and quality of experience we hope to help you to discover both for and about yourselves.
What we say is potentially dangerous, we absolutely do not advise that anyone kill themselves to test what we will say.
So what are ghosts?
In our views, ghosts begin as spiritual connections between two or more living people.
The spiritual connections between people always transcend death.
The spirit realm is not ‘the next world’, it is a realm that transcends worldly properties.
All people exist for all time.
Time does not pass, only our awareness of time moves on from one time to another.
Consequently, you exist forever even though you may appear to die and may subsequently seem to remain dead forever as well.
Only your corporeal bodies, your incarnations appear to die. The greater spirits that might be called your souls cannot die because they are not dependent on anything or anyone for their existence, with the possible exception of God (who may otherwise be irrelevant to this discussion).
Time is an illusion.
Consequently, all people, including all ‘dead’ people exist now; always and only now.
The mathematics describing the big bang and the formation of parallel universes show that in the beginning all of time and space existed in a singular state of unity, collapsed into a super-saturated condition of infinite energy that could only begin to expand, resulting in a big bang whose visible aftermath (the architecture of our universe and the background radiation ‘container’ surrounding our universe), can be seen in any direction we care to look in all of the unclouded night-time skies of earth.
The quantum principle of entanglement describes how everything (previously only one infinitely dense initial state that was infinitely small to the point of its own non-existence in space-time (as we conventionally understand space-time)) …remains connected to everything else in spite of its apparent physical separation across any and every conceivable distance, even the distances of time.
Ghosts, then, to our way of seeing them, are phenomenon related to connections between living persons from different times who may become associated by the places they share.
>>>Ghosts are not the spirits of people who have died. Spirits are much more than ghosts, revenants or any other such dimly perceived discarnate beings.
>>>Perceptions of ghosts are always mediated by each perceiver’s unique matrix of cultural icons such that no two people can see ghosts alike, even though they may cue each other to describe a perceived ghost in similar terms.
>>>Alternately, they may collaborate in a ruse.
So why do so few people see ghosts, and why are ghosts so frightening?
People are vulnerable to seeing ghosts for a variety of reasons, most of which disturb a person’s abilities to relate to the so-called ‘real’ world in ways that are often conveniently described as mental illnesses by people too ignorant to appreciate the gifts or talents of people able to act as mediums or channels for the ‘dead’.
Severe traumas of nearly any sort, but particularly near-death experiences make a person more vulnerable to seeing beings from other worlds who may resemble ghosts.
>>>these beings may also resemble angels, devils, the incarnation of death, or saints, etc.
>>>these beings gain their appearances from the minds of their beholders; the beings may be real, however their appearances are rarely ‘accurately’ described; their descriptions tend to result from a conflation of very subjective cultural paradigms and psychological projections rather than from any ‘objectively’ perceivable phenomena.
Traumatized people appear to be more prone to experience psychologically projected phenomena.
Such projected traumas, when described, often form a basis for other traumatized people to encounter their own traumas in a context that feels safer for them than the true memories of the real traumas that haunt them.
If a person consistently helps people explore their own traumas by describing events which may really only be the speaker’s projected trauma then the speaker may eventually come to be regarded as a psychic healer.
Psychic abilities are related, in part, to a phenomenon called resonance. Resonance occurs when two or more spirits share something in common, such as traumatic experiences.
Death is one of the most powerful experiences shared in common by two or more people.
Many (if not nearly all) psychics regard themselves as having had at least one near-death experience.
However, as we see it, all people have near-death experiences all the time; so near, in fact, that they are always dying, all of them, right now, including you.
You die right now.
Fortunately, no matter how many times you die, you will always go on living as well. The architecture of the plenum guarantees this.
A sort of psychic homeostasis keeps your conscious awareness focused nearly exclusively on your lifetime, ignoring all of the times you die.
The mathematics describing the formation-of-universes collapses all of space-time into a singularity, an infinitely small point where space and time cease to exist.
All of time, in that moment, exists now.
The you that is 8 years old and the you that is 80 years old are both inseparable parts of the you that is now.
Only the manner in which you perceive yourself limits your ability to know yourselves at any other ages than those ages most immediate to your current concept of this moment you call now.
The same limits apply to knowing yourselves in context to other lifetimes in alternate incarnations.
Past-life regression specialists may be less fraudulent than many of the general public might believe them to be.
Resonance occurs between similar things, events, emotions, thoughts, etc. any perceived similarity can evoke an experience of resonance.
In the cases of ghosts, the resonance of death becomes a gateway through which a medium can connect with the spirits of other people who have died.
Persons very familiar with death may make some of the very best mediums.
Death is painful, often terrifying. Mediums and other psychics must often learn to inure themselves to the shock and trauma associated with death.
Regardless of a medium’s skill and familiarity with death, a medium’s clients will almost always be less skillful and less familiar with death experiences than their medium; consequently, the medium’s ability to assist their clients’ perceptions to transcend their earthly limitations are mediated or disrupted by their clients’ emotions and beliefs, especially their anxieties.
When a ghostly presence is experienced, at least one person experiencing a ghostly phenomenon will be connecting to the ghost’s spirit with their own spirit through the commonality of their death experiences. This person may act as a medium who may enable other people to share their experience. The other people present need not be strongly familiar with death in any traumatic or personal sense.
The medium, the person acting as a bridge between the living and the ‘dead’ need not consciously remember their own death experiences or traumas; however, the larger parts of themselves, the parts that every person hides from themselves beyond their immediate conscious awareness, always know death and trauma intimately.
Mediums are people who are often or typically more skilled at accessing these hidden inner parts of themselves than their clients or other lay-folk.
In a séance the details of how each person has died are inconsequential; it is death itself that is always the door connecting them.
Death is immediate.
Death is always happening now.
But this is only because all things are always happening now.
In some dimensions you are always dying right now.
Traumatized people learn to transcend the limits of space-time in order to survive their traumas.
The more routinely a person is traumatized the likelier they are to learn to dissociate from here-and-now. Dissociation with the present leaves the dissociated person in a void that becomes filled with projections of whatever most strongly resonates with them.
Sometimes, a traumatized person simply wishes to die.
Such a death wish can resonate and attract similar death wishes.
In this manner, when a person truly, fervently wishes to die, they may make a connection with another person who wishes to die, a connection that transcends space-time.
Memory requires a storage medium.
Old places have stored memories of everyone who has visited them.
Of all the experiences stored in an old place, death experiences are the loudest, the strongest, the clearest experiences a medium can perceive. Too often these are so loud that they drown out a medium’s ability to read anything other than the spirit of a person who died in that place.
Inexperienced mediums or lay-folk may be shocked into trance states that enable them to perceive spirits or the ‘remains’ of a spirit’s experiences in a haunted place.
Shock reduces a person’s cognitive skills to less evolved states. Some cognitive states are more resistant to perceiving spirits or their energies than are other cognitive states.
Adults, for example, are less prone to see ghosts than are children.
Researchers have explained this by saying that children are more fanciful or more gullible; however, culture often plays a critical role in how well a person is defended against or well attuned to seeing spirits.
Scientific cultural communities seem to reinforce a social convention of denial; consequently, many researchers are really trying to support or defend their own denials; they may fail to do any genuine research because they may really only be doing their best to explain away any evidence they may find that conflicts with their desires to deny anything supernatural is really possible.
Many people are afraid of ghosts, but some scientists are afraid of mere concepts of ghosts.
After all, if ghosts are real, perhaps anything could be real?
Where would science be then?
Scientists are particularly concerned with clearly defining what they believe to be real in contrast to everything they choose to believe is not real.
But it is all real from where we sit, including ghosts.
So do ghosts really exist then?
Everything imagined becomes real by imagining it, if it is not already real to begin with.
So ghosts, even if they were never real before the first person imagined one, are now real.
If ghosts are real, then why did we say ‘no’?
We said no only because what you imagine ghosts to be is unlikely to fit a ghost’s description of their own ghostly natures.
All phenomena in the physical world is unreal.
Anything that might be real is inaccessible from within this state, except, perhaps through our imaginations.
If ghosts are regarded as belonging to what most people might regard as the ‘real’ world, this world, then ghosts are not real because this world is not real.
At best, ghosts may belong to some alternate reality, a reality that is always here and now, but also always excluded from this world at the same time.
The excluding agent is your mind.
Your mind excludes anything it does not want to spend time with.
Your mind is the maker of all of the time that you experience; the more impatient you are the less likely you are to give time to matters that do not interest you.
If you are fascinated by ghosts you will almost inevitably begin to experience them if you have not experienced them already.
However, in our opinions, regardless of so-called scientific ‘evidence’ to the contrary, ghosts are not phenomena of this world, even though all worlds appear to be intimately connected to one another through quantum entanglement.
The perception of ghosts, like all other perceptions, is a cognitive function.
All of your perceptions are mediated by your minds.
(Yes, you have many minds, regardless of whether or not you may feel you are many different people. But we probably should not launch a discussion on multiple minds here.)
A perception is a mentally mediated product of your senses; a perception is your minds’ description to itself of your awareness of something sensed; a description which must be phrased in a language of some sort; a language consisting of symbols that contain references you associate with objects you perceive with your mentally mediated sensory awareness.
Whatever a ghost may be, without a concept for a ghost in your mind that distinguishes it from other worldly phenomena, a ghost will appear to be an ordinary part of reality; its reality will be indistinguishable from the reality of anything else you perceive.
A ghost’s discoverable properties may differ from the properties of other things in ways that you may eventually decide make ghosts seem unreal, however, until you can learn to distinguish a substantial difference between ghosts and other more worldly things, all of these things appear to be equally real.
Over time, your minds accept the culturally defined opinions of your family, friends, and neighbors; you learn how to think about ghosts. Even if what you learn to believe is wrong, it becomes the right thing to believe in context to your family, friends, and peers.
Consequently, it may be true that ghosts do not exist if the opinions of your local community consensus agrees this is the case, and at the same time it may be true ghosts do exist if your own perceptions inform you this is true.
The details may never agree, but both opinions will always be true in context to themselves, as tautological cognitive phenomena.
But then, in the end, all explanations for everything return to their own origins forming circular arguments for their own existence that can only be tautologies, or so it seems to us…
If you believe in ghosts, then they are real.
However, to the best of our knowledge, it is only by transcending death that you can know ghosts on terms as intimate and real to yourself as you know your current family and friends.
All people transcend death beginning with their misconceptions.
To be conceived by your parents is to not be conceived by them as well.
It always is.
So from the moment your parents make love your conception is as equally inevitable as it is unlikely; all possible outcomes of your potential conception come true; each in a different universe.
In some universes you are never conceived, your parents are barren or they conceive a different child.
In other universes you are conceived but never born; instead you are miscarried, murdered, or aborted.
In still other universes you are born differently, your gender, birthmarks or other details of your anatomy may be different than those you are familiar with today.
All of these possibilities were made real when you were made real, not with your conception, but with your will to exist, your will to become the person you call yourself.
All that you dreamt that contributed to this incarnation you experience now was programmed by you for you alone; albeit you may have many friends or soul-mates whom you may meet while you are incarnate here who may have been written into your dreams of the person you most wished to become here.
Regardless of whom you love or how you collaborate together, all that you do is done for yourself, regardless of who else may benefit.
If you experience ghosts now, then it is because you wanted to experience ghosts as part of this lifetime, even if you now feel frightened or injured by your experiences of ghosts.
Your ghosts may be other incarnations of yourselves, or they may be members of your families or clans; they may be some other kindred spirits with whom you have strong affinities that resonate between you deeply across any and every conceivable distance of space or time.
Every place has its memories, but it is the memories of the dead of a place, its ghosts, with whom the strongest connections are most easily made.
Experiences of your own death resonate in response to the dead of another place and may open the doors of perception widely enough for you to see beyond this world to the worlds of any ghosts you may meet.
Today’s television shows provide elaborate props and dramas to present their depictions of hauntings and ghosts. These shows may help some people to believe in ghosts more readily, while, at the same time convince other people that ghosts may not be real.
What a person takes away from such shows is almost always what they wanted to believe before watching, regardless of any or most denials to the contrary.
Typically, it is your choice, whether or not to believe in ghosts, that will do more to inform your perceptions than will any underlying reality (or unreality) of ghosts.
love, Schrodinger’s Grigori,
Deceased, yes, but also still alive… haha hehe hoho…
Are you ready to open our black box to see how we are for yourselves?
