Of the five proofs of Proof of Afterlife, "Proof of Afterlife By Birth" was the first. It is also the easiest to understand. I didn't come to this conclusion out of my faith. At the time I conceived it I was an atheist. It wasn't always that way. I was born into an American Midwest catholic family in the early 1950's.
Being 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 growing up was that if you led a good life you would be rewarded by going to heaven when you die. We were also taught there was a single, all encompassing God that oversaw everything. I believed that when you died you would go to heaven. Heaven, I believed was a magnificent place. This is what I was taught from an early age.
These teachings came from catechism. Catechism is weekly classes that we attended as part of the Catholic faith. It was in catechism that I formed my basic afterlife belief system. The basic belief was that God is all seeing, all knowing, and all around us at all times. Included in that belief was that we ascend to heaven at the end of life. Heaven was a large and beautiful place. Over all of this was a belief that God is good and going to heaven was a reward for living a good life.
That was my belief system as a young man, about 10 years old. As I became a teenager, it was the "God is good" part that gave me trouble. Like so many American families of the 1950's the effects of alcohol ravaged mine. My father was intelligent, hard working, and devote, but he couldn't stop drinking. The drinking started early, when I was about five years old. The disease of alcoholism progressed steadily over the next decade. The abuse suffered by children of alcoholics is severe. I was no different. As the disease progressed the abuse 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 be abusive to 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.
Finally at the age of sixteen I reached the conclusion that there cannot possibly be a God watching over this. People get sick. I understand that. But this was self-inflicted. No matter how ugly he became toward those closest to him, he would get up the next day and do it all over again.
I can't blame the nuns at catechism. They were doing there best to impart the catholic ideology. Everything they taught - God is all knowing, all seeing, and good - is correct for most people. Us children of alcoholics are different though. The abuse suffered by young innocent victims is horrific. No one should have to endure this abuse. Being abused leaves you profoundly different than most. You become decidedly pessimistic. Adult children of alcoholics know how bad things can become. There is no limit to the black hole you can descend into.
The faith that was so strongly engrained eroded slowly of the years. Finally, at the age of 16, it collapsed. 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.
At 16 I became a hardened atheist. There was nothing in my life that allowed me to think anything different. I suppose the association between God and my father was responsible for this. Young boys look to their father for support and guidance. My father, when drunk, was a monster. When drunk he hated his own son. He was drunk six days a week. That is a lot of hatred in a young boy's environment. The conclusion I drew was there couldn't possibly be a God. It made sense.
That is the backdrop for "Proof of Afterlife by Birth." At 16 years old I became a hardened atheist. I conceived this proof at 18. What you have at that time is a boy whose catholic faith had completely crashed. I believed there was no God. I believed there was no afterlife. I believed that what we saw in life was all there was. In short I believed in nothing. That is until that fateful august day in 1970 when everything changed. It was during a party when it came to me. There was more to life than what we see.
That "more" can be explained by birth. So here it is. This is the first proof of the five proofs.
I. Birth: The Beginning Of Life
1. Solving For The Unknown
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. It is the precise 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 show what lies on the other side of death.
2. The Moment Of Birth
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.
3. Life Described In Geometric Terms
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.
4. The Moment When Life Begins
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.
II. Analogy Of The Birth Machine
1. Constructing A Birth Machine
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.
After conception there is life.
The transition at conception from no life to life took place in an instant.
2. Defining The Transition Of Conception
I want to take a closer look at our birth machine. We understand conception has taken place. To understand how conception works in geometric terms, let us look at an inferior birth machine that operates with diminished capacity. Here is what that diminished birth machine looks like:
1. On the left (input) side of the machine we put in a sphere that is one inch in diameter.
2. Inside the machine the sphere undergoes a change to become a sphere that is 10 inches in diameter.
3. The sphere is expelled out the right (output) side of our machine as a 10 inch diameter sphere.
4. This change took place in an instant.
So far so good. To understand conception we need to take the concept of change above and push it to its limits. Here is how that would work:
1. On the left (input) side of our machine we put in a zero diameter sphere shown as the small red dot. The sphere has position only. It has no length, width, or depth but it does exist.
2. Inside the machine the sphere undergoes a change where it becomes a sphere of unlimited diameter. The sphere of unlimited diameter would encompass all of space.
3. The sphere, now all of space, is expelled out the right (output) side of our machine.
4. This change took place in an instant.
This is a look at conception from a purely geometric perspective. Before conception (shown as the left side of the birth machine) the sphere is a geometric point. It is location only with no dimension.
After birth the sphere becomes all space. It becomes a universe. The transition from point to all space takes place in an instant.
This is a dimensional change of life. A dimensional change is when position within space becomes all space. It is when a geometric point is turned inside out to become the surrounding space. It is possible because our birth machine is now perfected. It takes in the smallest possible thing, and in one instant, turns out the largest possible thing. By putting a geometric point through our machine, it changes dimension to become space.
3. Birth And Dimensional Change
Conception is the creation of life. How did life get there? Based on observation we can see that at the moment of conception life underwent a change in dimension. Before conception there was nothing. After conception there was life. Life went from nothing to position within space.
Look at conception as the change in life from nothing to existence. Geometrically this is it is the same change as our birth machine. Mathematically the change from nothing to position and position to all space of the same magnitude. The change that takes position and makes it all space is the same change that takes nothing and makes it position. They are mathematically equal.
Let me explain the moment of conception in a graphic way:
1. Before conception life is like zero-diameter points floating around just waiting to be born. They are so small they don't even have position. Geometrically they are nothing.
2. All of a sudden one of these spheres gets sucked into the left (input) side of our birth machine.
3. Inside the machine life undergoes dimensional change and gets blown up on the order of magnitude of a geometric point becoming all space.
4. Life comes out the right side of the machine.
5. This dimensional change of life from nothing to position happened in an instant.
This event is conception. Life coming into existence when a moment before there as nothing.
4. Conception Defined As Dimensional Change
We do not have to understand the machinations to see conception work. We only need to observe the input, the output, and the duration of the event. Here is what we have:
1. Conception takes place in an instant. This is a slice of time.
2. Life is the output of conception. Life is located at a point in time and a point in space. Life exists in the present. The present is a point in time. In like manner, life exists at a point in space.
3. Nothing was the input side of conception.
III. Birth And Death Are The Same Dimensional Change
1. Perspective Of Dimensional Change
Proof of afterlife is based on this assumption:
Birth and Death are the same event
Evidence makes it so. Our perspective is different with death than it is with birth. During life we are stand between birth and death. What this means is:
1. During life we are look back in time at birth. From our perspective in life we are looking the output side of dimensional change at birth.
2. During life we look forward toward death. From our perspective during life we see the input side of dimensional change at death.
Here is what we know:
1. The input side of conception is nothing.
2. The output of conception is life.
3. The input side of death is life.
These three things are self evident. What we need to prove is the output side of death. We do not need to see it to prove what it is. We can prove it because we know:
1. Conception is dimensional change at the beginning of life.
2. Death is the same dimensional change at the end of life.
That is all we need to prove afterlife. No other variables are required.
Given that conception and death are the same event, here are the only three possibilities.
2. Possibility One: Nothing to Life to Nothing
This is an arrangement is where birth and death are oriented facing each other. The two birth machines are arranged as shown:
In this arrangement this is what happens:
1. Life starts out as nothing (on the left).
2. Life undergoes dimensional change by going through conception. It comes out of conception as life.
3. Life undergoes dimensional change again at death, going into the output side of conception.
4. Life comes out as nothing (on the right).
This arrangement seems the most obvious solution based on what we see. Birth and death opposing is the classic athiest belief. It supposes nothing beyond what we see. Physical evidence of death as life going to nothing seems to support this arrangement.
However, just because it looks this way doesn't mean it is this way. There are times when looking at the big picture brings new understanding to light. When you turn birth around, to oppose like this, it is not birth anymore.
The problem with "nothing to life to nothing" is conception and death are opposing. Since conception and death are the same event this cannot be true.
3. Possibility Two: Nothing to LIfe to Life
This arrangement is one where there is no birth at death. Visually it looks like this:
This is what is happening starting from the left of the diagram:
1. Life starts as nothing to the left of birth.
2. Life undergoes dimensional change at birth and becomes life.
3. Life goes through death but does not undergo a dimensional change.
4. Life continues after death.
In this arrangement life just keeps on going. There is no death. Some believe life lives on in some other form. Others believe life goes somewhere different physically such as a dream state.
The problem with the arrangement is there is no birth at death.
Life continuing in some other form is not dimensional change. Afterlife arrangements like this cannot be true because there is no dimensional change at the end of life.
If this arrangement were true we would not see life come to an end. If life continued in its present dimensional state, without undergoing dimensional change, we would know about it. If life changed position at death we would see that too. We do not see life continuing on. We see life end. That is why this arrangement of nothing to life to life cannot be true.
4. Possibility Three: Nothing to Life to Space
This is an arrangement where birth and death are oriented in the same direction. It looks like this:
Life begins on the left at a specific point in time and space. It moves forward through time and space toward death. Life arrives at the moment of death at a specific point in time and space.
Take our dimensional change machine and position at the point in time and space where life began. Then take the same birth machine and position at the point in time and space where life ends as shown.
Here is another view of life between birth and death. From our position during life we are looking at the output of birth (at conception) and the input of side birth (at death). This is our life situation. This is an accurate description of what we have.
Once you see this, it all fits beautifully.
IV. Defining Afterlife: Multiplying Life By Birth
1. The Output Side Of Death
To understand how afterlife works I want to look at the diagram below. We are going to look at birth in a limited sense first to get an idea of the type of thing that happens at the end of life as shown here:
Here is how afterlife works:
1. Starting at the left side of the diagram we have a cube one unit by one unit.
2. It passes through birth where it gets expanded 10 times to become a cube that is 10 units by 10 units. This is us during life between birth and death. This is the intermediate stage where we are now.
3. Then cube passes through birth again, at the end of life. This time however, life went into birth as a 10 unit cube.
4. At death life gets multiplied again, 10 times, exactly like at birth.
5. Life comes out of death as a cube 100 units x 100 units.
This is the understanding you need to see afterlife. Life will expand at the end of life by the exact same ratio that did at it birth. To further define that ratio look at the equation below:
This equation is as follows:
1. The left is what goes into birth, divided by what comes out of birth.
2. The right is what goes into death, divided by what comes out of death.
3. The left and right ratios are equal. Solving for the output side of death is simple.
To put this another way: what we are now during life is litterally nothing compared to what we will become in afterlife. If you're seeing the equation this way, you're on the right track.
2. Solving For The Output Side Of Death
To actually define afterlife we need to take a closer look at our ratio. We need to further define what comes out of birth and goes into death. This is clarified by the equation below:
We define the left ratio first:
1. On top, before birth, we have nothing.
2. On the bottom, after birth, we have life with position in time and space.
Now the right side of the equation:
1. On top, before death, we have life with position in time and space.
2. On the bottom, after death, we have time and space. The output of death is unbounded space and time.
The left and right side ratios are identical. That is because birth and death are the same event.
3. Defining 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 life, in its entirety, is what goes into 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. It is binary, just like birth. 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.
4. Afterlife: What Will It Be?
I've done my best to describe afterlife as big as possible. Afterlife is grander still. As you will see in other sections, our awareness is limited during life. Much of the environment passes directly into memory without the conscious mind being aware of it. Everything includes a lot that we do not know. Everything is much bigger than what we know.
That is why understanding the totality of time and space is important. The dimensional change 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 position to everything. Push whatever you are thinking to the boundaries of grandeur. 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 will become everything you know.
2. You will see everyone.
3. You will encompass all knowledge.
4. You will become all seeing and all knowing.
5. The term big bang comes to mind, as in the origin of the universe. We are standing in life now, before going through our big bang where a point expands to become all time and space.
6. It terms of afterlife, we have not been born yet.
7. We will become all time.
As grand as these statements are they are still an understatement. We cannot comprehend the scope of what is coming.
I know you think this cannot physically be possible. If afterlife is expansion in time and space, why don't we see it?
Here is why: Dimensional change is the expansion of one point in time and space to all of time and space. Through dimensional change the one moment of death expands to become all of time. It only takes one moment to become all of time. We do not exist even one moment after the end of life, however that one moment at the end of life contains all time. It only takes one point in time and space to become all time and space. That is how life transcends the physical body. That is also why we do not see this happening. We are not at the point in time and space where dimensional change happens. The only time we will see this is when we go through it.
Afterlife is the opposite of what we see at death. We see an life coming to an end. Afterlife is the exact mathematical opposition of that. We see life going to zero. They see life going to everything. The opposite of what we see is what happens.
Proof of afterlife is based on the assumption that birth and death are the same event viewed from different sides. The mere act of life coming to an end causes an equal and opposite reaction of life becoming everything. What we become is the mathematical inverse of what we see at death. Inside the person at the end of life, is an infinite awareness explosion throughout all of space and time. Afterlife, exactly like birth, takes place in an instant. Outside observers do not see it because it happens immediately. Dimensional change is how afterlife works.
This concludes proof of afterlife by birth.
I've always been a problem solver. My parents hated my habit of taking everything apart to see how it worked. In Math class in high school I attempted to solve a famous unsolvable problem. I turned in dozens of charts of failed attempts. I received an F for my effort.
Theory of Afterlife by Birth was conceived in 1969. I was 18 and not in good shape. My friend Eddie measured life success in terms of the big three. The big three consisted of a job, a place, and a car. I had exactly zero of the big three. Additionally I was estranged from my parents due to my father's drinking. On top of that it was cold outside. Northern United States gets real cold in the winter. Living without the big three is not what you want.
The idea of launching a preaching/teaching career based on Afterlife by Birth was not possible. I had no foundation. I had nothing, monetarily or emotionally. That does not alter the fact, unlike the unsolvable math problem, that I did have a true theory.
This video above is fairly close to the concept I am trying to embody. Two words come to mind. One is dimension. The other is explosion. To me dimension means outside space, all of it. Explosion means something that blows up.
When I look at this clip, I see birth. This video embodies the emotional concept I am trying to convey. What you have here are particles emanating from a point in the center of space, reaching out into space. All the particles are coming out of a single location in the center of space.
What I like about this video is it approximates what I call dimensional change. Dimensional change is when a point blows up to become its surrounding space. The dimensional change that happens at birth is total and instantaneous. It doesn't happen over time. It happens in an instant. One instant there is a point. The next instant there is space. This video shows this happening slowly over time, so that is not correct. But I like the concept.
Dimensional change is a hard concept to explain. Everything that happens in life takes place within the dimension. It is linear. The concept of point becoming space is hard to convey because we never see it. The idea of going "up and out" into another dimension does not appear to make sense. We have no frame of reference for it. Proving afterlife cannot happen while staying within the current dimension. It requires opening up to the concept of dimensional change.
Look at this video. Imagine having two of these. One occurs at the beginning of life. The other occurs at the end of life. Mentally place this video back at birth. Place it again at the end of life. While regarding this placement, think of the first video as looking into the output of it. The video represents point to space. If you are looking at the output side you are seeing the space (or output) side of the event.
Now look ahead to the end of life. This is the exact same event as the beginning of life. It is the exact some point to space transition that occurs at birth. Only this time we are going into the event. This time we are going into the event as the space that came out of birth. We are going in as space and undergoing a point-to-space magnitude transition.
At birth we underwent the point-to-space explosion to become what we are now. At the end of life we are taking what we are now and applying the same point-to-space transition. We go from nothing to big through dimensional change. Then we go from big to stupendous through the exact same dimensional change. Take one and multiply it by ten and you have ten. Take ten and multiply it be ten you have one hundred. It is that concept. Only the muliplication is total and instantaneous. But the logic is the same.
The multiplication factor is embodied by the video. Use that as your multiplication factor. Imagine this transition is total and complete, not only in space by time as well. Through birth in terms of time we go from nothing to the present. Through death we go from the present to all time. The math works. It is different, to be sure, but it works. Look at the video, imagine what I am saying, and it will make sense.
Put another way, it is not life to nothing that happens at the end of life. It is the exact opposite. I mean literally the exact mathematical opposite. It is life to everything that happens at the end of life. The only thing necessary to prove it is so is that birth and death are the same. I believe the are.
