It was October 1969. The weather was still nice but getting colder. By this time I had proof one and two, proofs by awareness and birth, behind me. I was sure that life didn't end at death. I'd seen too much to believe that.
However, I was in pursuit of a comprehensive proof of afterlife. I wanted to take it further. It wasn't that proofs one and two weren't correct. They were. I wanted something definitive. The next trip was a deliberate pursuit of a theory of afterlife. It was Friday in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I remember sitting in class watching the clock on the wall tick towards 3:00pm. I couldn't wait to get with my friend. We had a party to go to that night. Being young we had no qualms about doing crazy things. I was part of the Woodstock generation. This time, unlike last time, I made sure to bring along a pencil and paper.
As the drug took effect I was thinking about afterlife. I tried to concentrate hard. Then the apparitions appeared. The environment was becoming more complicated. A complicated environment, full of apparitions moving and multiplying, was a distraction. I couldn't think. I remember thinking; there is no way I can make any sense of this. Finally I was forced to give up. My environment had become so complicated that I couldn't do anything but experience it. Thinking was out of the question.
Soon, experiencing the environment was out of the question too. It became a matter of simply holding on. I was losing my grip on reality. I was drowning in complications. The apparitions were so vivid, numerous, and detailed that I was stupefied by their complexity.
As bad as things were, they just got worse. Each apparition was magnificent in its complexity and there were thousands of them in the environment. If you looked at once, it exploded into more complexity by growing facets. The complexity was building and there was no control. The apparition filled environment was boiling over. There was nothing I could do about it. I was scared to think about how this might end.
Then, when things were at their absolute worst, everything cleared up. It happened in an instant. One moment I was drowning in complications. Then my mind snapped. The next moment my environment was clear. I was back in a normal environment with no apparitions. All complexity disappeared.
What caused the apparitions to disappear?
Here is what I saw.
When you start out you are a point of view within the environment. You are sitting in the center looking out at the world. Then an apparition appears. The apparition is in your environment. So you are experiencing the environment plus the apparition.
Then another apparition appears. Then another. The apparitions become more complex and numerous. Your environment is becoming more complicated. As the environment grows more complex, it begins to become overwhelming. Everything is taking place around you. The complications are on the outside of the mind.
Then you back up in your mind. You goes from being a point of view within the environment to being the environment itself. When this happens, your mind absorbs the apparitions. The apparitions that were on the outside of the mind are now on the inside. Complexity was overwhelming to a mind that was a point. It becomes simple to a mind that is space. I could feel my mind expand from the center to the outer reaches of the environment. It went from point to space. As it did, complexity became trivial.
When I saw this I knew life is not going to end at death. It is going to do exactly what happened here. It is going to expand to the reaches of time and space. I've seen it first hand.
The human mind has two states. State one is the point of view within the environment. State two is the environment itself. Awareness can only be in one state at a time. During life, awareness is in state one. After life, awareness is in state two. We never see state two unless we experience out of body awareness like I did above. Once you see state two you know it is there.
When my mind transitioned, it went from state one to state two. When it did the apparitions were absorbed. State one is consciousness. State two is memory. The mind is both. We happen to see things from state one during life.
I make this sound easy. It's not. The period of clarity after the mind expands lasts a minute or two. Then the apparitions and complications begin anew. You can't think during this. You are not in control.
At the beginning of the site I explained that during the first trip something profound happened and I wanted to write it down. But I didn't have a pencil and paper. I didn't forget that. This time I came prepared with a pencil and paper. After the trip was over there two things written on that piece of paper. One were the words "Memory and Dimension work together and that's why things become more complicated." The second was a picture of a pyramid.
What made perfect sense at time time I wrote it down wasn't so clear afterward. It was up to me to piece together what I meant. It took some time to figure it out. Following is Proof Of Afterlife By Geometry. It explains exactly what I meant when I wrote those words down at the peak of that evening.
This section is a traditional mathematical proof. It uses geometry.
If you are looking for a mathematical proof of afterlife, this is it.
Before we walk through this proof, we need a basic understanding of what geometry is and how it works. When I say basic, I mean basic. This proof does not require any math. It is proved visually. All that is required is an understanding of the geometric concepts of point, plane, space, and time.
Geometry has been around for a long time. Mankind's first civilizations occurred in about 8,000 BC. The origin of geometry can be traced back to 3,000 BC in ancient Egypt. The ancient Egyptians could calculate the area of a circle. They obviously had a pretty good grasp on point, line, and plane as the built the pyramids. The greatest pyramids were built around 2,500 BC.
The ancient Greeks developed geometry further. Euclid, who lived from 325 to 265 BC, is considered to be the father of geometry. He presented geometry in an ideal axiomatic form that became known as Euclidean geometry. Euclid lived in Alexandria during the time of Alexander the Great. Alexandria was noted for advanced learning and the most complete libraries in the world. It was a premiere center of knowledge at the time.
It was Euclid that formalized the concepts of point, line, and plane. Geometry is reality reduced to its simplest terms. Geometry provides the perfect building blocks for proving afterlife. Here is a review of the basic concepts of geometry: point, line, space, and time.
A point, in a geometrical sense, is a location. Mentally you build your concept of a point by thinking of a small dot. Think of the smallest dot you can imagine as shown here:
Then take that dot and make it smaller by one half. Then take that dot and make it smaller by one half again. Now, take that dot, and push it to the limits of smallness. Make the dot so small that it has no size. It has no length, no width, and no height. It occupies no space because it is too small. It is just location. A point, within the context of this discussion, is this perfect geometrical point.
A point is like a pin of light shining within a dark universe. It is so small that it has no length, width, and depth.
A line is like a point in that it has no height or width. It does however have length.
You can think of a line as a point that has been stretched in both directions. A line is infinitely thin and perfectly straight. It extends infinitely in both directions. If you looked at a line from one end, it would look like a point.
A line is infinite in length but has no width or depth as shown above.
A plane is a slice. A plane has length and width, however it has no depth. A plane is a point that has been stretched in length and width but has no depth.
A plane is like a sheet that is razor thin. It has no thickness, only length and width. It is perfectly flat. It extends forever in lenght and width. If you looked at a plane from the side, it would look like a line.
Think of a plane as having no thickness, but unlimited in length and width as shown above.
Space is the opposite of a point. A point is infinitely small, with no length, width, or depth. Space is the opposite. Space has unlimited length, width, and depth.
You can imagine space by standing outside on a dark night looking up at the stars. Imagine space as stretching infinitely in all directions.
Space has unlimited length, width, and depth.
Think of space as taking the sphere above and expanding it in all directions, infinitely, until is encompasses all of space.
Time is often called the fourth dimension. Length, width, and depth, coupled with time, form our universe. The first three dimensions (point, line, space) exist in time. Time is generally not considered a dimension when talking about geometry. To understand afterlife we have to understand time too.
A point, existing through time, is actually a line. So to properly define a point (within the context of time), a point would be a point that exists for one moment only. It would exist for a moment and be gone. The true definition of a point would have no length, width, depth, and no duration. But it exists. It is location, within time and space.
Space existing through time would have unlimited length, width, depth, and duration. The definition of space (within the context of time) would be everything.
Time/Space is four dimensions. It is unlimited length, width, depth, and duration. Put another way, it is all space and time.
The concepts of geometry including point, line, plane, space, and time form the perfect framework to prove afterlife. Afterlife is proven by equation. The equation is built using these five geometrical concepts.
Imagine yourself sitting outside, at night, under the stars.
Now imagine a pyramid. This is a perfect pyramid. It is made from four geometric planes. The pyramid extends out below infinitely to the limits of your universe. The apex of the pyramid is razor sharp. The pyramid looks like this:
We noe have a pyramid sitting in the universe. The sides of the pyramid extend out to the limits of your surrounding space.
Now take a geometric plane and make a horizontal slice through the pyramid as shown below. The horizontal slice intersects the pyramid forming a plane. The small drawing in the upper right shows the plane intersecting the pyramid. The large drawing shows the pyramid slice in perspective.
You can see how the plane slices through the pyramid. The intersection of the pyramid and slicing plane is shown in yellow.
Now take a cube, exactly the size of the slice, and place it on the pyramid. The base of the cube sits exactly on the intersection of the slicing plane.
The cube sitting on the pyramid looks like this:
The drawing in the upper right shows the cube sitting on the pyramid precisely on the slice. The center of the cube sits precisely at the apex. The large drawing shows the cube in perspective sitting on the slice.
Now add a second cube, exactly the same size. Place it on the pyramid at exactly the same place.
We now have two identical cubes sitting on the pyramid at the slice as shown above.
Inverse is a relationship that can exist between two things. For example, you rent a music hall for $300. Then you sell tickets to cover the cost. If 10 people come, each ticket costs $30. If 100 people come, each tickets costs $3. The cost of the ticket has an inverse relationship with how many people attend. If few people come, the cost is high. If many people come, the cost is low.
The cost of the ticket is inversely proportional to the number of people that attend. As one goes up, the other goes down.
We can have an inverse relationship in geometry too. To show this we have placed two boxes, of the same size, on a balance beam. The fulcrum of the balance beam is exactly half way between the boxes. The system is in balance as shown here.
It is important to FEEL the balance of the two boxes on the beam. Since the boxes are the same size, and the fulcrum sits exactly half way between each box, the system stays in balance. The question is, what happens when we move the fulcrum?
When you slide the fulcrum under the beam, taking it off dead center, the beam tilts and the boxes fall off. The system is out of balance.
Let's make keeping the system in balance a hard requirement. That means we have to adjust the size of the boxes to whatever they need to be in order to keep the system in balance.
As we move the fulcrum toward one box (and away from the other), the boxes must change in size to maintain balance. It is important to feel this happens. As the fulcrum moves toward on box, it must become larger. As it moves away from the other box, it must become smaller. Like the teeter-totter, moving away from the center makes you heavier. Moving in toward the center makes you lighter. If a heavy guy moves in, and a lighter guy moves out, the teeter-totter stays in balance.
When balance is fixed and box size is allowed to float, the boxes enter into an inverse relationship with each other. As the fulcrum moves, one box gets larger and the other box gets smaller. Visually it looks like this:
To feel for the concept of inverse, imagine sliding the fulcrum back and forth on the beam. As the fulcrum moves, the boxes react in kind. The precise mathematics is not important.
What is important is to see these boxes get smaller and corresponding larger as the fulcrum moves in and out beneath them.
See this as a fluid system, ever responsive to the position of the fulcrum. Now that you have an idea of the inverse relationship between the boxes, we place them into a simple equation.
A requirement of inverses is expressed mathematically as follows:
We start with the boxes being the same size and assign a volume of one. The equation reads, from left to right,
This equation is read, left to right, as follows: One divided by one, multiplied by one, equals one.
The system is in balance.
Now we are going to change the volume of the box from one to two. It will be twice as large. Now the equation reads,
One divided by two, multiplied by two, equals one.
The system is still in balance. The box on the left has been reduced to half its size. The box on the right has increased twice its size. The equation still equals one.
The boxes are locked into an inverse relationship. The boxes will do whatever they need to do so the equation equals one.
If we reduce the size of the box on the left by one half again (to one fourth of its original size), the box on the right increases to four times its original size. This inverse relationship between the boxes holds.
With that in mind, we place the boxes back on the pyramid.
The illustration below shows two cubes back on the pyramid. It is a requirement that the two boxes maintain their inverse relationship. The inner box has become slightly smaller. As an inverse response, the outer box has become slightly larger as shown:
Look at the inset drawing at the upper right. The original plane is shown as a slicing line in orange. This was the original placement point for both boxes. At that time both boxes were the same size and same distance from the apex. Now we have moved the plane up slightly toward the apex of the pyramid. The inner box stays on the plane.
The inner box keeps its corners on the pyramid. The inner box has become slightly smaller.
Since the inner box and outer box are invoices of each other, the outer box gets correspondingly larger. The inner box is reduced by one half. To compensate, the other box has doubled in size. The boxes stay on the pyramid and the relationship between the boxes still holds. This system remains in balance.
Now that you see how this system works, take the slice and move it up a little further toward the apex of the pyramid. As the slice moves toward the apex of the pyramid it takes the inner box with it.
The inner box is reduced again by half. Correspondingly the outer box doubles in size.
As the slice moves towards the apex the inner box becomes smaller and the outer box becomes larger. The inner box is now one fourth its original size and the outer cube is four times its original size as shown here:
We have made two movements of the boxes. First we reduced the inner box by half. Then we reduced it again by half. Correspondingly the outer cube doubled in size. Then it doubled again.
Instead of moving in jumps, I want to think about constant movement. Take the slicing plane and start moving it slowly toward the apex of the pyramid. As you move it, imagine what it happens to the inner and outer boxes. As you move the slicing plane up toward the apex, the inner box is becoming smaller.
Correspondingly the outer box is becoming larger.
As you get close to the apex the inner box becomes very small. Simultaneously its inverse, the outer box becomes very large.
Eventually the slicing plane reaches the apex.
At that moment the slicing plane touches the apex, the inner cube becomes a single geometric point.
That looks like this:
Look at the inset in the upper right. The slice has reached the apex of the pyramid. The pyramid has perfectly sharp edges being made from four geometric planes. The intersection of the slicing plane and the pyramid is one geometric point. At this moment the inner box has no length, width, or depth but it does exist. It is sitting precisely at the apex of the pyramid.
To help visualize what a single point at the apex of the pyramid looks like imagine it as a infinitely small point of light. Mentally it is as if the inner cube has started to emanate light now. It has no size. It has been reduced to only position only, without dimension. Visually and emotionally the single point (the inner box) looks like this:
Our inner box has become a single point. Now that we know what has happened to the inner box, the question is what has happened to its inverse, the outer box?
We know the outer box is the inverse of the inner box. Here is what has happened to the outer box:
As the inner box became a point with no length, width or depth, the outer box has become its inverse, with unlimited length, width, and depth.
Think of this as the outer box expanding through space. When the inner box reaches the apex, the outer cube reaches out through space to encompass the environment. As the inner box takes on its glow (when it reached the apex), the outer box reached out into surrounding space and took on the same glow.
The inner box is a point within the environment. The outer box is the environment itself. Here we show the view of the outer box, looking down at inner box:
Look at the picture above. Imagine sitting somewhere out at the far reaches of the environment looking down at the apex of the pyramid. This shows the outer box looking down at the inner box.
The inner box is your awareness. The outer box is your memory. Memory and awareness are inverses of each other. Awareness is location with no length, width, or depth. Memory is space with unlimited length, width, and depth.
What you are seeing in this drawing, is awareness from the perspective of memory. This view is your memory looking down at your awareness. The perspective of memory looking down at awareness is something we will never see during your life. We will only at the end of life. This outer glow is the entire space around you. The outer glow is your memory.
The key to discovering afterlife is looking at the present moment only. What I mean is look at awareness and memory now, in the present, while we are alive. Ignore, for the time being, that memory has depth in time. Concentrate only upon the present. When we approach afterlife this way the picture becomes clear.
Think of yourself outside, at night, under a sky of the brightest stars you've ever seen. Looking out at the stars we are struck with the vastness of the universe. The distances to stars is measured in light years. When you look at the universe this way it is easy to see that we exist at a single location within a vast universe.
The diagram below shows the inverse relationship between awareness and memory:
On the left side of the equation is awareness. It is infinitely small, a single point.
On the right side of the equation is memory. It is infinitely large, the environment in its entirety.
The two boxes, awareness and memory, are invoices of each other.
This inverse point/space relationship of awareness and memory holds true always. Most people believe that life is awareness only. It is not. Life is both awareness and memory working together. Memory is the inverse of awareness and vice versa.
Until now we haven't dealt with time. Now I want to add time into the equation. When you add the four dimension, time, into the equation it looks like this:
On the left side we have awareness in the present. Awareness is at one location in space/time. On the right side we have memory with its duration in time. Memory is the surrounding space and time.
Note: To see this clearly we need to consider space/time from the perspective of awareness. All space and time, relative to an individual, is everything they have experienced from the beginning of life to the present. Every moment experienced is absorbed into memory as it happens. It is retained in memory perfectly, exactly as it happened the first time. All these moments held in memory form a time/space continuum containing everything.
The equation above, with awareness on the right and memory on the left, proves afterlife mathematically. The proof concludes that afterlife must be unlimited space and time.
We don't see the right side, memory, during our lifetime. We only see the leading edge of memory. We call it the present. We feel that the present is real and the past is the past, but that's not true. The past moments are real too. They are as real as the present. We will not realize these moments until they end of life.
During life we go from environment to environment. Unbeknownst to us, memory is absorbing these environments in total as we move through time. We aren't aware of it. It happens in the background. While we go about our daily business, our inverse (memory) is building a realm of unlimited length, width, depth, and duration. We don't pay any attention to it. We don't even know it is happening.
Over time what you are left with is a huge realm of time and space, filled with everything you have ever experienced. Don't take my word for it. Look at the equation. The left is a point that lasts a moment. The right is unlimited space that lasts through unlimited time. The two are perfect inverses. This is how it is.
Memory is an unlimited realm of time and space that we have built during lifetime. We haven't manifested it yet. But it is there. It has always been there. It will always be there.
Afterlife is awareness expanding to unlimited length, width, depth, and duration. During life we are contained in the smallest possible box, a single point at one moment in time.
At the end of life we become the inverse, unlimited space without beginning or ending. We go from a point in time to all of space and time. When I envision it I think about the Big Bang theory of the original of the universe. I think about how it all began from a single point in time and space.
Afterlife is not a point of view within a big box. It is not awareness as point, like we are now, continuing beyond death. That is not how it is. Afterlife is a point expanding to absorb the universe. Awareness becomes the universe. Moreover it is not as though something external needs to happen for this to manifest. Memory is already there. The realm of time and space exists in memory already. The ability of awareness to expand into it exists too. You can think of life as being confined to a point. Once that confinement is broken, awareness expands. Awareness expansion is unlimited. It goes everywhere, including throughout time.
As you approach the end of life, rest assured that the kingdom of heaven is real. It exists in memory. It is perfect. It is my hope that by going through this proof, you know now that death is not life going to zero. It is the opposite. Death is life go to everything.
At the end of life you will become God.
You just don't know it yet. You will become all seeing and all knowing. You will be without beginning and ending. You presence will be everywhere.
This concludes proof of afterlife by geometry.
Jesus, like me, was faced with the task of explaining these concepts to people. Ask yourself this, if you were Jesus and you knew what he knew, how would you impart your ideas to the world? Most people assume that the "word" just gets out. Trust me, it doesn't. Just because you understand, does not mean everyone else does too. It takes a visionary like Jesus to take a geometric idea and make it understandable to others. Jesus came up with two analogies to explain this knowledge. One is "Son of God." The other is "Kingdom of Heaven."
My understanding of Jesus comes from early Saturday Catechism. These were classes given by nuns of the Catholic Church to youngsters. I attended catechism from the age of three to six. The nuns instilled in me the basic concept of heaven through the teachings of Jesus. At the age of 17 I rejected these teachings. I became an atheist. Through the Theory of Afterlife I began to see that these teaching were correct after all. It became apparent, upon the realization of afterlife, that Jesus did know what he was talking about.
I have a slightly different concept of "Son Of God" than the consensus. The consensus believes that Jesus was the one and only "Son of God." My opinion differs. I believe what Jesus was saying is that "Sons Of God" applies to everyone, not just him. He was telling people that through death you become will God. As the son grows up to one day become the father, Jesus was saying that through death you will become God. As all sons grow up to become the father, we will all one day become God. I like the analogy very much.
In the days of Jesus Rome was the dominant empire. The Roman Empire encircled the entire Mediterranean Sea. Roman leaders had unlimited power. In many instances they insisted on being regarded as gods. In the midst of all this, Jesus was preaching that ordinary people, including slaves, will become God. When pressed on the issue, he couldn't denounce it because it was true. It is easy to see why an authority who insisted on being regarded as a god could not allow it.
In the days of Jesus there were 170 million people on earth. Today it is estimated there are 7.4 billion people. That means the population then was 0.22 percent of what it is today, roughly 500 to 1. The vast majority of people then didn't have conveniences. It was largely a hunter-gatherer society with a few small villages. Life was a hard. Here's what I see when I envision the days of Jesus:
Nothing. No roads. No towns. Imagine walking through the wilderness like this and coming upon the city of Rome for the first time. You are probably from a village with a few huts, in the middle of nowhere. There may be a few domesticated animals and a crop or two.
Then you come upon Rome. Never has a society had such a technological advantage over the surrounding environment. In the time of Jesus, Rome was about one million people. Rome had already invented concrete. Using concrete they constructed large temples, forums, and theaters. These weren't small either. They were towering structures, many faced in marble that surpassed anything in the world by a large margin.
Throughout the city the water flowed. Rome built aqueducts that carried water for miles into the city. Aqueducts ran through mountains and crossed deep valleys on arched bridges. Roman aqueducts transported water with a drop of as little as 3 inches over 1000 feet. Rome was a city of water. It was gravity fed from the surrounding hills into many fountains, sewers, and baths. What a sight that must have been?
Rome had roads. I'm not talking about dirt paths. I'm talking about paved roads. They ran throughout the empire. No one else had roads. Rome had a standing army that was, by far, the most powerful in the world. They also had leisure time. They had theater. They had sporting events.
Water flowing through the city allowed a million people to gather together for the first time. Rome had a sewer system that kept the city clean. Roman bathing was part of the culture. Their bathhouses were like temples. Romans enjoyed cold baths, warm baths, and hot baths. Baths weren't only for the aristocracy. Bathing was ingrained in the Roman culture. In the days of Jesus, in contrast to the rest of the world, Rome was good.
I'm pretty sure that in ancient Israel, they knew of Rome. I can just imagine the tales from people that had seen Rome; tales of magnificent marble temples, abundant food in the forums, paved roads, luxurious villas, large sporting events, and fountains with running water. Rome must have seemed like the city of Oz. It must have seemed like a magical place from another planet.
Jesus told people "You will inherit the kingdom of heaven." When people envisioned a kingdom, they envisioned Rome. The city of Rome, compared to the countryside, was uber good. Hard living in a village was in stark contrast to a leisurely existence in a Roman villa. It was that contrast he was getting at. The Roman proletariat led great lives. They played, bathed, and went to shows. The kingdom of Rome must have seemed like an awesome, wonderful, and magical place. The kingdom of heaven is an awesome wonderful, magical place of infinitely greater proportions. It is a place you want we to be and will be soon.
