EXPLAINING LIFE’S MYSTERIES May 17, 2009
By Stephen Ellis
Nobody asked me, but…
“It seems we stood and talked like this before…
We looked at each other in the same way then
But I can’t remember where or when…”
The lyrics of the haunting song, “Where or When” by Rodgers and Hart first came out in 1941 with the Benny Goodman band playing for a 21-year-old Peggy Lee. It was far from being the first song whose lyrics talked about a déjà vu experience. There have been stories, songs and even poems about “haven’t we met before”, “haven’t we known each other before” and “haven’t we had this conversation before” dating back to Homer’s “Iliad” and “Odyssey” written in approximately 400 BC.
So, why do skeptics and the so-called scientific community keep denying the possibility of having lived before? Or perhaps that we may be living the same life more than once in a different dimension?
Granted that nothing paranormal can be proven scientifically. But, even the claims of science are virtually not provable by their own standards. Still, if we look at the few things that science claims they can prove we must ask ourselves where they are headed? The answer is that they are headed for paranormal answers…and back to God.
If you look at the Super String Theory (which even very few physicists seem to fully understand) the existence of other dimensions containing planets just like Earth is now becoming a scientific reality. Is this really fact or is it science-fiction?
One of the questions no one seems to be able to answer, as of yet, is where these other dimensions are located and/or how we can communicate with them. Some quantum physicists believe these other dimensions are in our microscope; others believe they are too large to be seen with our telescope; still others believe they exist parallel to us.
In my book, “Explaining the Unexplained” I set forth a scenario wherein we are existing in some giant world’s microscope. I don’t say that this is the way things are, I just set it out as a “possibility “ to stimulate the imagination. Yet, there are some factors that are undeniable: Bodies in space act like bodies under the microscope. There are undeniable similarities in the way electrons spin about a nucleus and the way planets spin about the sun. The seemingly absolute limit for any atom is to have eight electrons spinning around it. For many years, we thought we had nine planets spinning about our sun, but just last year, astronomers decided that the planet, Pluto, was not in our solar system and that our system had only eight planets. Coincidence?
It is not my position to state that my little scenario is true, but if it doesn’t get you to start questioning things about our existence, then I’m not doing my job well.
I haven’t seen the film “Angels and Demons” yet, but I have read Dan Brown’s book. It starts with the premise that science and religion are mortal enemies. It’s an excellent novel, but it creates lots of so-called “facts” in an attempt to justify that premise.
The truth is that science and paranormal phenomena are one! The research and discoveries of science only serve to create questions that science cannot answer. If science cannot answer them we must look elsewhere for answers. We must come to the conclusion that there are things out there that lie somewhere outside of science’s limitations. Paranormal? Perhaps something or someone far beyond us that created everything? Science, alone, will never provide the answers.
It’s silly to believe that the heavens and the earth were created in six days or that Noah put two of every living species on an arc to survive a planetary flood. To me, it’s just as silly to believe that man came from the sea via a walking or flying fish and evolved, through monkeys, into human beings. There are so many basic differences between humans and every other species that inhabit this planet that Darwin’s “Theory of Evolution” makes about as much sense to me as the theory of our world starting less than six thousand years ago with Adam and Eve.
So why does science fight everything connected with religion? Why do they try and label the paranormal as pure fiction and its believers as less-intelligent people? Why does science say that déjà vu is impossible when billions and billions of people have experienced it? Why does science continue to call millions of people “liars” and “frauds: when they claim to see UFOs or when they have claims of recalling a past life?
The fact is that the closer science comes to the truth, the closer it comes to belief in a Creator and in the paranormal.
“...And so it seems that we have met before…
and laughed and loved like this before…
but who knows where or when.”
