The Nature and Origin of Man--p1

What awaits us after our death?
This new body, is it physical?

image of a penny with 'In God We Trust' The nature of man, the origin of man, has always interested me since a young child. My suspicion now is that we are not and never was flesh and bones, corporeal, and not ever of a physical nature. Now that I'm 69, now that I'm approaching what can only be described as the end of
this life and the beginning of a new one (or perhaps a return to an older one), I'm beginning to wonder about the nature of man, especially to where I may be headed after this one ends.

The Astral body, as it's usually called, could be, and probably is that which the Bible refers to as a "new body" where man sheds his physical body, exchanging it for this new one. The fact that we're "caught up in the air" tells me that this is likely the case because when in the Astral body, we have the ability to fly through the air.

A few minutes ago I set out to find a suitable explanation as to what the Astral body is, but having found none, I decided to make the explanation myself. The Astral body is identical to our "physical" body. What makes it different is that it is non-corporeal by nature. Although it has an atomic structure, like our physical bodies, the density of the Astral body's physicality is much, much less than the body we occupy here in this reality.

In short, you and I actually occupy the Astral body, and the Astral body itself climbs into this physical body, much like we do when we get into our motor vehicle and ride around. In a word, our true nature is that of the Astral body, not the one we use in this reality. The complexity doesn't stop there, however. In truth, the Astral world, also called the spiritual world, is itself not our true habitation.

Well, after having had possibly hundreds of OBE's (Out of Body Experiences) over the first 45 years of my life, I've come to understand the process intimately well, although I may not understand every little detail of what's at play behind the scenes. But I know enough to understand that we, in this reality, know very little about any of this. I know this so much so that I've come to suspect that there is NO PHYSICALITY. The following is a photo of my personal journal, which may explain why I decided to write this blog post (click on the image to view an enlarged version):

Background

When I was a small child, I was intrigued by the mere idea that in the beginning was God and only God. Out of nothing God made something by merely speaking it into existence, and that is what I was told, kinda.

In John 1:1-5, this is what we're told (see photo below). We're told that 'in the beginning was the Word, that the Word was with God, and the Word was God.' And so, I can see where those who came and went before me concluded that 'in the beginning there was nothing but God.'

I was partially raised by a Methodist minister's family, the late Rev. R.C. Wells of Waco, Ohio. It was there at the parsonage that I asked Mrs. Wells many questions concerning God, why He chose to make us, where He came from, how He came to be in the first place, etc. My time with them began in 1955, at the age of five, to 1965, at the age of 15.

One of the things I asked Mrs. Wells, and most likely my own mom, was why God made us. I was told, and I'm not sure by whom, perhaps by both, that He was probably lonely because He was all by himself, and so He chose to make the angels as well as man.

Once I asked Rev. Wells who all those people were outside the Garden of Eden. I pointed to the passage that said, essentially, that Cane who slew Able was cast out of the garden, that a mark had been placed on his forehead so no one outside the garden would kill him. The preacher smiled and said that this is a question that the clergy has argued over for a very long time. He told me that some of the clergy believe that those outside the garden were Adam and Eve's children where others believe otherwise.

After considering this question a very long time, I chose to believe that if these were Adam and Eve's children, they would be in the garden along with their other children. I continue to believe this even now.

These questions were with me a very long time, even before I asked the Wells' about them. My own mother, Nova Jane Adkins Colombo, who went home to be with the Lord in 1995, told me prior to her death that at an early age, like two years old to four--for two years--I had her read two specific books of the Christian Bible to me--Genesis and Revelation.

One day, according to her, she asked me this question, "Why only these two books?" She said, "Do you remember what you told me?" I had no remembrance of what I may have said. She said, "You told me that you want to know where you came from and where you were going."

I'm not surprised. I've always known that I had a life before this one, that this is not the only place I've been. In a word, I've always known that this is not my home. As I said, I knew this from as far back as I can remember.

Conclusion

I suppose that this could be considered as the very beginning of a larger body of work. I've been holding off starting it, but now, I've had a sudden realization that I'm not getting any younger and that this must be written now, before I lose what faculties I may have left. The fact is, I'm still here, and in due time, I may not be. So there is no time like the present.

Wait on the Lord

A bit of inspiration in the midst of chaos and confusion.

image of a penny with 'In God We Trust' Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. -Psalm 27:14

Science, Religion, and the Quantum Hologram Theory

Let's continue our discussion on what someone has coined a Programmed Reality. Probably one of the most difficult things for human beings to do is enjoin what we know about religion with what we don't know about science.

On a personal note, the writing of this blog post has taken additional time because the integration of religion and science is not an easy one to understand, let alone write on. So this post may see a few revisions and additions over the course of time. When I do that I will alert my readers using a segment of the blog that I have yet to create--a "What's New" page, which will be available in the right hand column on this blog.

Science and Technology

First, in my personal view of life, science and technology go hand in hand. In a historical sense, it was religious figures in history that pioneered scientific thought. At some point, and I'm no historian, it appears that the two took a radical turn apart from one another.

Secondly, it appears to me that when we look at the universe above and around us in a scientific sense, we do so utilizing the finest technologies known to man-kind. So, in my view, it requires the use of modern technologies to reverse engineer our current understandings of what God has done in the initial and on-going creation and of the world we live in. So, to my notion and in my estimation, this boils down to this: "It takes technology to understand God's technology."

Here is a list of Bible passages that I believe has significance in understanding the programmed reality issue:
1 Chronicles 29:15
For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.
2 Peter 3:8
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Mark 13:20
And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
Matthew 24:22
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

Life and a Programmed Reality

For several years I have expressed the idea that what we see before us is a manifestation of a high-order technology the likes that our minds at this level cannot begin to fathom.

I first became involved in this thought several years ago, probably 2008, when I watched several quantum physicists talk on YouTube about their interpretation of what the cosmic evidence indicates so far as reality goes. I've written several articles and blog posts concerning this issue and have contacted several scientists who, I might add, did not give me the time of day.

Before I say anything more, here are several videos that you should watch that will walk you through some of the theory and ideas concerning a programmed reality. When you're done with these, perhaps there will be no need to read on... Al Colombo


So the question is, what is the reason for this quantum holographic projection? I read with great interest a few years ago some of the papers that came out of a conference held by quantum physicists. It was said that many of these scientists were coming to realize that they, themselves have a presence in two places at the same time. Yes, it's a mystery that none of us can fully comprehend.

If you apply many of the things the Christian Bible tells us about life, you will find that it's a very scientific book. In an upcoming post I'll talk about some of these things written by God in our Bible and how they relate to a programmed reality.

If you have something to share, an opinion, a link, a thought, please comment to this post.

Humans and Artificial Intelligence

For some time now I've pondered several issues: "Just what is reality." "What is this thing we call life on Earth?" "What is the true nature of this thing we're immersed in?"

In the Christian Bible we're told that not everyone is called by God to be part of His Kingdom. Instead, the Holy Spirit, 1/3 of the Godhead, calls a man or woman and then it's up to each of us whether we heed the call. This leads to a process that Jesus Christ called being "reborn," or "rebirth."

We're also told in the Bible that those of us who are called are listed in a book commonly referred to as the Lamb's Book of Life. According to God's Word, our names were written into this book before a single plank was laid in this world. We're also told that unless our names are in this, there is no going home to God.

So, with all of this in mind, I have to conclude that those who heed the call of the Holy Spirit by allowing Him into their hearts and minds are living, breathing beings while those who do not heed the call, especially those not listed in the Lamb's Book of Life from the beginning of this time, are not true, honest-to-goodness living beings. This would, in my mind, make them sort of an artificial intelligence (AI).

What this boils down to is that those who are not reborn are really not part of the program here and those who are in that book are. If those who are not reborn are truly AIs, then perhaps all of this--reality itself--is generated by a form of computer technology the likes that we at this level can only imagine.

Quantum physics appears to support this possibility. To do research on this issue, go to Google Search and use the following terms in a search: "Quantum Hologram" and begin reading from there. When you are done, email me and let me know what YOU think. Send your email to blogger@tpromo.com!
