It was winter of 1970, about three months after the first proof. In discovering the first proof, Proof Of Afterlife By Awareness, I learned how an increase of complexity in the environment lead to proof of afterlife. When you become aware of more, as it did during the party in proof one, the result is an increase in confusion. Confusion is brought about by awareness opening to absorb more information than it normally does. It was then I realized that awareness doesn't diminish at death, it grows.
This second proof, Proof Of Afterlife By Birth, follows directly from that growing awareness concept. From that experience I learned that there is more going on in life than we are aware of. Most of what happens in life gets absorbed into memory unnoticed. It follows logically that life's unnoticed information would be realized at some time. That time is afterlife. That's when my attention turned to the geometry of birth. Could it be that birth and death are exactly the same event?
I was raised in a traditional American catholic family. We were taught about Jesus and the kingdom of heaven. I wasn't devotedly religious, but I did believe in the basic teachings of heaven. My understanding was if you led a good life you would be rewarded by going to heaven when you die. I believed was there was a single, all encompassing God that oversaw everything. I believed Heaven was a magnificent place. This is what I was taught from an early age.
These teachings came from catechism. Catechism is weekly classes that I attended as a member of the Catholic faith. It was in catechism that I formed my basic afterlife belief system. The belief was that God is all seeing, all knowing, and all around us at all times. It included belief that we ascend to heaven at the end of life. Over all of this was a belief that God is good. Going to heaven was a reward for living a good life.
My belief system as a young man (about 10 years old) was severely tested. As I became a teenager, I began to doubt the "God is good" part. Like so many American families in the 1960's, mine was ravaged by alcoholism. My father was intelligent, hard working, devote, but addicted to drinking. The drinking was bad by the time I was five years old. Alcoholism gets worse over decades. The abuse suffered by family members of alcoholics is severe. I was no different. As the disease progressed the abuse by my father got worse.
I was conflicted. On the one hand I had been taught that God is all seeing, all knowing, and watching over us. On the other hand I saw what appeared to be an intelligent man willfully taking a substance that caused him to abuse his family. I my young mind I struggled to find God's plan in all of this. When you witness someone destroy everything that is good in life by insisting on drinking every day, it wears you down emotionally. Finally, at sixteen, I rejected the possibly be a God.
The faith that was so strong as a child, eroded into atheism as a teenager. Finally, at the age of 16, it collapsed completely. No God can possibly condone this, I reasoned. The only conclusion I could draw, based on the facts at hand, was there were no God, no heaven, and no afterlife.
Then quite unexpectedly due to these psychedelic drugs a phoenix arose from the ashes. My faith returned. It returned because I had physical proof the afterlife exists. I wasn't looking for it, but I saw it. While high I experienced my mind expanding. Before seeing this I thought life was all there is. Through experimentation I found out differently. When you are sitting in a room, listening to two conversions simultaneously, and the environment is hopelessly confusing then you know. I knew, for the first time, we go through life in an unopened state. When I caught a glimpse of the open state, albeit briefly, I knew I are sitting on a powder keg. Life, at any moment, can explode upwards. The mind is not ever going down. It is going up.
In the days and weeks after the party I began to think about how opening the mind pertains to the beginning of life. At birth there is an opening of life too. Could it be that the beginning of life (conception) and the end of life (death) are exactly the same event? Mathemtically it makes sense. These two events, conception and death, are an opening of life. Both take place in an instant. The only difference is our orientation. We look back at conception. We look forward to death. Other than orientation, they are the same event.
Here is the second proof, Proof Of Afterlife By Birth.
Birth, within the context of this discussion, is the spark of life that occurs at the beginning of life. I am talking about the first moment of life. Birth, in the context of this discussion, is conception.
Birth is the exact moment in time when a cell becomes imbued with life and begins to grow.
The important concept is that life is binary. It has two states. It is either on or it is off. It is like a computer bit in that regard. Birth is the moment in time and position in space where life turns on. It happens at conception. That is when life goes from off to on. Life remains on from that moment until the end of life. At that moment life turns off. At least that is what we see.
Solving for afterlife is a matter of looking at what we have and solving for what is missing. Shown below is a life, what we know, and what we do not know:
Put yourself in place of the person in the illustration. Here we are in life located in between birth and death on a time line. From our position between birth and death we can see the output side of birth and we can see the input side of death.
What we cannot see is the output side of death. This lies outside our view. From our perspective between birth and death we cannot see this.
Our problem is to solve for output side of death. The output side of death is the unknown quantity. This section will prove what lies on the other side of death.
First, understand what I mean by birth. For this discussion I am not talking about childbirth. I am talking about the spark of life that occurs at the beginning of life. I am talking about the moment of conception. Conception the exact moment in time when life begins.
For the duration of this discussion, we are referring to conception, not birth by mother. That takes place nine months after the birth I am talking about. It is critically important to differentiate between birth and conception. Within this context we are talking about conception. Conception is the moment when life turns on.
I want to step away from the physical being and think about just life. I am not talking about the manifestation of life. I am talking about life itself. At conception you have a change in life that takes place. This change is from not having life to having life. A moment before this change there was no life. A moment after this change, there is life. The change took place in a single moment in time as shown below.
Life began at a moment in time. Conception was not something that took place over a duration of time. Conception was a spark. It was a quantum change, from nothing to life, that took place in an instant. In computer parlance, life went from 0 to 1. It went from off to on. This transition took place in a moment.
Conception is an event that takes place at the moment in time when life begins.
To be able to solve for afterlife we have to define life first. A firm understanding of life is a requirement. To quantify life, consider the geometrical definition of a point:
1. A geometric point has no height, no width, and no depth.
2. A geometric point has no dimension.
3. Yet a geometric point exists.
4. A geometric point has position in the universe.
You cannot see a point. It is too small. You cannot measure a point. It has no dimension. Yet it exists. It has position. A point exists at a location in the universe. It exists within space.
Now consider life...
Life has exact properties of a geometric point as follows:
1. Life has no height, width, or depth.
2. Life has no physical dimension.
3. Yet life exists.
4. Life exists at a position in the universe.
You cannot measure life because it has no dimension. Yet, life exists. Life has position in both space and time. It exists at a location. We see manifestations of life. We know it exists.
The properties of a geometric point and life are the same.
Look at the diagram of the beginning of life below. Look at the spark of life - the specific point in time and space where life begins. Before that moment, at the left side of the plane, there was no life. After that moment, on the right side of the plane, there is life. Life can be traced back to one point in time and space where our life began.
In geometric terms life began at a specific moment in time and a specific point in space. Life began at a location within time and space, then moved forward in time and through space from that point. Life did not come into being as a built up over time. Life came into being as a spark. One moment life was not there. The next moment it was.
Looking at conception in geometric terms, life exists at a point within time and space. This geometry sets the stage for the illustration that follows.
Life exists after conception. Life did not exist before conception. At the moment of conception something happened. When the spark of life occurred, we have life when before we had nothing. After conception you have an existence emanating from a location within time and space. This existence has position. It exists in both time and space. The transition from nothing to existence took place in an instant.
Imagine building a machine that creates life as shown below. The machine is capable of conceiving life. It can create life from nothing in a single moment in time. We do not care about what is in the machine or how it works. All we care about is what goes in the machine, what comes out of the machine, and how long it takes. Visually that looks like this:
We do not know how life happens. All we know is that it does happen. Here is how our machine works:
1. We take nothing and put it into the input side of our birth machine.
2. It passes through the machine in an instant.
3. It comes out the output side of the machine as life.
There is nothing explained here that we do not see in everyday life. This is simply a matter of describing birth in an unconventional (and mechanical) way. All I did was define conception (the beginning of life) in geometric terms. I am saying:
1. Before conception there was no life.
2. After conception there is life.
3. The transition at conception from no life to life took place in an instant.
I want to take a closer look at our birth machine. We understand that conception takes place at the beginning of life. To understand how conception works in geometric terms, let us look at the precise moment life begins, shown as the black vertical line. To the left of the line there is no life. This is shown in red. To the right of the line there is life. This is shown in blue.
1. On the left (red input) side we put in nothing.
2. Inside the machine, at a precise moment, life begins.
3. Life is expelled out the right (blue output) side.
4. This transition, from nothing to life, took place in an instant.
So far so good. To understand this concept completely we need to take a look at the transition at birth in a three dimensional view:
In this view we've tilted this back to show the geometry. The height, width, and depth coordinates represent the specific point within the environment where life begins. The horizontal coordinate is time. The red plane, perpendicular to time, represents the exact moment in time where life begins. This drawing is intended to show this important fact:
Life begins at one specific moment in time and space.
Think back to the moment your life started. You are looking back at the output side of conception. Using our birth machine analogy, what you see is the blue output side of the machine. Visually you can only see the blue output side. The red input side is hidden from view. That looks like this:
The important point is:
During Life We Look Back At The Output Side Of Birth
When we look forward to the end of life, we are looking at the red input side of birth. Visually that looks like this:
What we have is a life existing in time, between birth and death. Visually that looks like this:
Putting it all together we make this assertion:
1. Conception takes place at the beginning of life. Life begins in an instant. This is a slice of time.
2. Life is the output of conception. Life is located time, between birth and death.
3. During life we see the output side of birth and the input side of death.
This diagram shows birth, life, and death in perspective. It looks like this:
Looking back at birth we see the blue output side of birth. The moment of birth, when life begins, is represented by a blue plane. We cannot see before the plane. We can only see after the plane.
Looking forward toward death we see the red input side of birth. We can only see before this plane. We cannot see after the plane.
During life we see the output of birth (blue) and the input of death (red).
To solve for afterlife I want to look at the diagram below. In this diagram life gets multiplied by 10 at the beginning of life. Life gets multiplied again by 10 at the end of life. Birth and death are the same transition. They take what comes in and multiply it by ten. This is what that looks like:
Here is how to read this diagram:
1. Starting at the left, we have a cube one unit.
2. It transitions through birth where it gets expanded 10 times to become a cube that is now 10 units.
3. The cube transitions through birth a second time. This time however, it went in as a 10 unit cube.
4. It gets multiplied again, by 10 times, and comes out as a cube that is now 100 units.
The transition, at birth and death, is not a 10-fold expanision. It is in that direction however. Life goes up at birth and it goes up again at death. I have put this into the following equation. The question mark (lower right) represents afterlife. This equation says it all. It proves afterlife. If you can look at this, and solve for afterlife, you have the answer.
This equation is as follows:
Nothing Is To Life, As Life Is To Afterlife.
The ratio of the left (nothing divided by life) and the right (life divided by afterlife) are the same. What this says is that through death life goes up. It goes way up.
It is not enough to state life goes way up at death. While true, this lacks definition. To truly understand afterlife I need to define exactly what it is. To do this I will start with one single question.
What time is it?
When I ask you what time it is you are going to respond with a specific year, month, day, hour, minute, and second. You are going to tell me an exact moment in time. What you are describing is an exact location on a time line. You don't describe two moments. There is only one. The present is a moment. It is a point in time.
Life in the other three dimensions is described the same way. When I ask you this:
Where are you?
You are going to tell me the country, state, city, address, and location within the room where you are located. Like time, you are located in space at a specific point in space. To sum it all up:
Your location is a point in time and space where you exist.
Life exists at a point within time and space. It emanates from that location. Coming out of birth we have a life emanating from a location within time/space. Now we put position (the point where life exists) into our equation. It now looks like this:
The equation reads as follows:
Nothing Is To Position As Position Is To All Time And Space.
What we have on the left is nothing on top and a single point (position) on the bottom. What we have on the right is a single point on top and all of time and space on the bottom. The ratios (left and right) are exactly the same. Think in terms of geometry. This mathematics works out exactly. It is the true picture of afterlife.
The equation above describes the mathematical structure of afterlife. Prior to death we are position within time and space, like a point. After death we are all of time and space, like the surrounding universe.
This geometric structure is not entirely accurate because surrounding time and space sounds like an empty box. This is not the case. While it is true that we are located at a position in time and space during life, we are also life. Describing life as position does not do it justice. It leaves out the emotional component. Life is rich, full, and vibrant. It is full of people. A point, by comparison, seems sterile and lifeless.
When I say we are position going into the end of life what I really mean is we are life going into the end of life. The emotional content of lifetime, in its entirety, is what comes out of the birth machine at the end of life as illustrated below:
The key to understanding afterlife is to apply the geometric understanding of position undergoing dimensional change to become all of time and space then, on top of that, layer in the emotional content of life itself. Replace position with life. While technically equivalent, life is a more accurate picture of what we really are.
Layer in the emotional content of life into time and space. The answer lies in taking life itself and passing it through the expansion that occurred at birth. Life undergoes a dimensional change upward, in proportion to a point becoming all space and time.
Afterlife is an explosion of life. Life transitions from the smallest possible thing (location) to the largest possible thing (universe throughout time). An explosion of awareness of infinite magnitude happens at the moment life ends. Infinite magnitude means that life explodes to become everything. Afterlife includes everything and everybody.
One final thought: The mathematics of afterlife is developed from the perspective of the individual involved. When I say throughout all time, I mean throughout all time relative to the individual. All time encompasses every moment from the beginning of their life to the end. From that person's perspective, that is all time. In the same manner, all space is all space relative to the individual. That means their environment. To that person that is all space. When you learn to look at life this way, from the perspective of the individual, the mathematics of afterlife falls into place. This simple, elegant, beautiful mathematical concept works out perfectly.
Afterlife is bigger than anything imaginable. As you will see in other Proof Of Afterlife sections, life is small during life. Much of the environment passes directly into memory without us being aware of it. Everything includes a lot more than we know.
The totality of time and space is important. The dimensional change in life that takes place at death is infinite. Afterlife is not a multiplication of life from one to ten, or of one to one hundred. It is a complete dimensional change of life from the smallest geometric entity (a point) to the largest geometric entity (all time and space). Push whatever you are thinking is the largest possible change to its limits. Afterlife is grander than anything imaginable. Whatever you are thinking; double it. Then double it again. You are still not even close.
If I had to describe afterlife it would include the following:
1. You become all knowledge.
2. You see everyone you have ever known.
3. You become all seeing and knowing.
4. You become all time.
5. You become all space.
As grand as these statements are they are still an understatement. We cannot possibly comprehend the scope of what is coming.
I know you think this cannot physically be possible. If afterlife is expansion in time and space then why don't we see it? Here is why: Afterlife is a change of life. Through death life expands from one point in time and space to all of time and space. Through death life changes dimension. It transitions from one moment in the present to all time.
It only takes one moment to become all of time.
Life does not exist for even one moment after death. However that one moment contains all time. In like manner it only takes one location to become all space. How is this possible?
The key to afterlife is memory. Memory contains time and space. We spend a lifetime accumulating memories. Memory absorbs time and space as we move through life. It builds a time space continuum during life. It is this time space continuum contained in memory that enables the transition from a location to all space and time. I will make this clear in the upcoming proofs.
Afterlife transcends the physical body. The expansion emanates from a single location. That is also why we do not see it. We are not at the point in time and space where dimensional change happens. The only time we see this personally is when we go through it. We do not have to see it, however, to prove that it exists. Afterlife is the opposite of what we would expect of death. We see life coming to an end. Afterlife is the opposite of what we see. We see life going to nothing. The person inside sees life going to everything.
Proof Of Afterlife By Birth is based on the assumption that birth and death are the same event viewed from different sides. The act life ending causes an opposite reaction where life becomes everything. We become the mathematical inverse of what we are during life. Afterlife is an infinite awareness explosion throughout all of space and time. This takes place in a moment. It lasts for that moment only. But one moment is all we need, for inside that one moment is all time and space. Outside observers do not see this. Life changing dimension is how afterlife works.
This concludes proof of afterlife by birth.
Ancient philosophy attempts to reach an uncluttered, peaceful state through the embodiment of be here now. This philosophy reduces life to its simplest terms. What I think of is a person sitting in an environment. To be here now is to not think about the future or the past. The objective is to eliminate everything but the present. In like manner, it is an attempt to eliminate thinking about other places. By restricting thought to only the current location can we be a peace in that place and time.
From a philosophical perspective it boils living down to its essentials. When you focus on just our present location life becomes simpler. It is much easier to cope with what is happening now versus what has happened in the past or will happen in the future.
I like to think of be here now as it pertains to birth. Before the event of birth (conception) there is no existence. Thus be here now does not apply. After birth there is existence. Now be here now does apply. We now have an existence (be) located in space (here) and located in time (now). In essence be here now describes a consciousness at one location in time and space. So through birth life has undergone a change from none to one, with one being an existence located at a point in time and space.
Be here now describes existence, but what about its inverse? Take the concept of be here now and turn it inside-out. The opposite of here is everywhere. The opposite of now is always. So if you look at the inverse of be here now you have is be everywhere always.
If you look at death as an event there are really only three things that can happen. One is that life ends. Life goes from none to one and back to none.
The second is that life keeps going. This would be life goes from none to one and then stays at one.
The third is that life goes from none to one to all.
It is this third concept that embodies the be everywhere always philosophy. From a mathematical perspective life becomes its inverse. This is the predicted answer to the question of what happens at death. Here is what it looks like when life becomes its inverse, going from here now to everywhere always:
Life going from here now to everywhere always seems impossible. Is there any practical evidence to support such a theory?
What is missing from the argument is the question of memory. Take for example, a person during life experiencing be here now. The environment they are sitting within is memory. We tend to think of memory as the past. Memory is your surrounding environment. Think of memory as memories of the past extending up to and including the present. Memory is continuous. The present moment is the leading edge of a four dimensional continuum.
The man experiencing be here now also has memories of the past. Memories of the past are not his recollection from the present. Memories of the past are the environments having been absorbed throughout a lifetime. Do not mistake remembering for memory. Memory is a continuous collection of environments experienced throughout life. When you look at the opposite of be here now you are looking at memory. Memory is the universe of that person.
Be here now is one aspect of life. That is the aspect we see. Memory is the other aspect of life. Memory is the surrounding environment. The total picture of life is more that existence within space. It is existence and space. During life conscious is aware from a location. At the same time memory is aware of space. Life is this location of awareness and its surrounding space.
So we go through life as location. We have a specific location within time and space. All the while our memory is capturing surrounding space. So during life we are building a universe of time and space. That universe is continuous, limitless, and goes back to our birth. We are a duality. We are a location in time and space observing the world. We are also the world as it gets absorbed in total.
Birth is the point in time when life goes from none to one. In geometric terms life goes from none to a location in time and space. Death is the point where life goes from one to all. A birth life gets multiplied to spring forth as one. At death life gets multiplied a second time by the same order of magnitude, to become all.
What makes this possible is memory. It is no coincident that memory holds all time and space at the moment death occurs. Memory is the environment that life expands into. The order of magnitude of birth reapplied and memory containing everything match perfectly.
I want to be specific about what happens at the end of life. During life we are be here now, an existence within space and time. As we go through life the here changes as we move from one location to another. The now changes as we go from one time to another. We can track our location through life. It forms a line in time and space as we go.
At some point we will reach out last moment. We will be at the end of that line. There will be no more moments.
At that moment our consciousness will be located at a specific point in time and space. It is then and there when that one moment undergoes a transformation into all of space and time. From that specific location life springs forth throughout a universe in memory becoming everything always.
The outside observer sees nothing. That is their frame of reference. From the frame of reference at that point of time they see awareness exploding throughout time and space. This is physically possible because the mind has absorbed environments in total as we moved through life. At the moment at the end of life that universe is built and intact. Conscious does not exist beyond death in the world of the outside observer. But it doesn't have to for afterlife to exist. Memory is a universe. At the end of life you enter that universe. That universe contains space and time. It is the universe we are within now. In this way life transcends the physical by becoming the dimension it was contained in. In terms of geometry through death that one location becomes a universe and that one moment becomes an eternity. Life has changed dimension to become life everlasting.
