Proof Of Afterlife By Memory
The Fourth Proof (Circa 1982)
In was summer of 1982. I was living in Downey, California. I had dropped out of the University of Michigan in 1970 to pursue proof of afterlife full time. I returned to school at Northern Michigan University in 1975. After graduating from NMU i went on to study at the University of Michigan in 1979. After graduation I got a job at Rockwell International on the Space Shuttle program. It was at Rockwell where I got my first access to a computer. You know what happened? Thoughts of proof of afterlife came rushing back when I realized the striking similarities between the computer and afterlife.
The first three proofs took place in a short time span, from 1969 to 1971. This fourth proof took place twelve years later. I was 32 years old by then. At this time in history there were no computers. During the years that followed I was grappling with terms like memory, conscious, and awareness in the pre-computer age. There was no manifestation of these computer terms like there is today.
By 1975 we were first starting to hear about computers. America's top universities may have had one. It was kept under tight security. Only a privileged few had access. The tight security and privileged access made computers more attractive. I was doubly attractive because of their connection to proof of afterlife. I knew they were related to afterlife in some way.
Knowing about afterlife is a double-edged sword. On the negative side I had a hard time settling into general life. Mundane things like getting a job were hard for me. I always felt compelled to preach the world but didn't have a clue about how to go about it. It took a full six years for me to settle down. I enrolled in college again. I began to build a career.
On the plus side it stopped my destructive behavior in its tracks. The knowledge of afterlife gave me comfort. I was an atheist before the theories. After the theories I started living my life knowing I was surrounded by memory. I knew the last day of my life would be the best. I didn't use these drugs anymore. I didn't want to.
Fed Up And Down Trodden - I Returned To School
At 25 years old I was weary of low paying jobs. I made the snap decision to return to college. I quit my job on Thursday. I packed a bag and took a bus to Marquette, Michigan on Friday. On Monday I enrolled at Northern Michigan University. I started classes on Tuesday.
It was 1976, during my second year when I saw my first computer. It was actually a word processor. A professor at the university had replaced his typewriter with a new computer based word processor. They showed me how they could make a mistake, backup up erasing the entry, and retype. This was the first time I had ever seen memory outside of the human memory.
As the author of Proof Of Afterlife I knew the significance of typing, backing up, and retyping. I drew an immediate parallel between the memory in this machine and memory in the human mind. Computers hold the key to understanding afterlife. They are living proof that memory exists. Up until this point in history, that wasn't the case. What we knew of memory was actually remembering. Perfect memory, such as computer memory, wasn't even a concept then. Most people felt memory faded over time. I knew from my work on the theories that the human mind took in and retained everything in the environment. When I saw this computer taking in and remembering type I saw physical proof of memory. This simple act of typing and retyping held profound significance to me. Computers reinforced the fact that memory is real.
Memory Manifested - The First Computer I Ever Used
I went through six years of college without actually sitting down at a computer. Universities had them but they were mainframes. The personal computer hadn't been invented yet. Access to the mainframe was tightly controlled.
I was at home on break when I announced to my mother that I was going into the computer field. She said I didn't have any experience. I told her it didn't matter. I knew I'd be good at it.
The reasons for my career shift were in order of importance:
1. The Theory: Although my career as an evangelical for Proof Of Afterlife never materialized, it wasn't about to give up either. When computers arrived I knew I had an avenue to continue learning about memory. Memory to me meant more than bits and bytes. Memory was the key that allowed the mind to change dimension.
2. My Interests: I've always enjoyed difficult problems. Someone told me once that programming a computer was incredibly hard. This got me excited. I think in terms of logic. I see things in black and white. Developing a program to control a computer to make it do certain things turned me on.
3. My Career: Going into computers was not an abandonment of my course of study. Even in those days it was apparent that computers were going to change the world of design. Computer Aided Design and Computer Graphics were coming soon. Moving into this field was somewhat in alignment with what I was already doing.
The first time I sat down at a computer was at Rockwell International shortly after graduation. The company had ordered two Coordinate Measuring Machines. The vendor shipped the computers in advance. Since I was assigned to the project they put the computer on my desk. It was mine to use. No one else had access.
It was a Hewlett Packard computer. It was beautiful. At the time it was in the $40,000 range. Since the CMMs weren't here yet I had all day to learn the computer. I attacked it with vengeance. I started writing software to manage the CMMs immediately. I had an affinity for this work. I enjoyed writing code and putting up
software. I still do this professionally to this day.
So here is Proof Of Afterlife By Memory. It was conceived eight years after the first four. The six years after the first theories was spent writing and rewriting attempting to come up with a real book. While a book never received recognition, it forced me to think these concepts through. Going back through the tape helped a lot. It showed me exactly what had taken place in the mind.
Once immersed in the computer field I began to draw parallels between the human mind and a computer. I looked at the question of afterlife from the perspective of computers. Computers helped me solve the age-old question of what happens when you turn off the power. Using computers I was able to continue my quest to prove what happens at the end of life. Explaining concepts of memory and awareness using a computer model fits perfectly.
