What if it's all real?
What if when we die we come back as ghosts? Now I'm not saying, what if ghosts are real. We've all experienced unexplainable activity linked to the spirits of those who have past. What I'm asking is, have you ever put away the equipment, silenced the concepts put in place by religion (Heaven, Hell, reincarnation, purgatory), ignored those past paranormal experiences and just focused on the biggest question in our field — the question driving everything we do? That question being: What does it truly mean if our energy continues to exist after death?
Don't answer. Think. Let the question sit for a while. It's a massive concept, which is quite possibly too complex for our brains to comprehend. An idea so incredibly monumental, spitting out a cliche answer to the question would only stall our progress towards the actual answer.
To me, if it's true we continue on after this life on Earth... Holy s#*t! That would mean this life is simply the beginning of an eternity-long adventure. Us living and breathing right now would only be a phase in our existence. The first lap after the starting gun.
Our conception (please don't make me have to explain where babies come from) could be the Big Bang! Which would mean we are each a universe. We, each of us, is a living universe, and within each of us exist millions of galaxies, and in those galaxies billions of life forms going about their daily life. Is it that far fetched? Your body is the home to countless microscopic organisms, and possibly an un-fathomable number of living things smaller we can't detect. To those beings, we are their universe. We are the endless void of space in which they dwell. When those living creatures die, their energy is absorbed by us — their universe. They continue on as long as we live.
Scale that concept up to our level: Human-size. What if we are those undetectable life forms in a much larger, living universe? When we die our energy would join that of the universe, and quite possibly have the strength to remain. Like I said, Holy S#*t!
If we do continue on after our brief stay of Life as we know it on this tiny planet, in a universe we assume has no borders, the definition of Death would need to be revised. It is not the end. It is just the beginning. It's a lofty idea, but I hope it's true. I experienced too many encounters with forces I can't understand to believe it all ends after our last breath.
We are so much more than we know, so there has to be more in this universe we don't know.
It's an outrageous idea, but What if?

Being out in the middle of nowhere for an extended amount of time gives me time to think. My mind wanders, jumping from thoughts about current theories in the paranormal to new ideas in the hopes of discovering the truth about what we're encountering. These are some of those ideas.
