Modern astronomers are busy with telescopes and spectroscopes, exploring distant star systems, searching for planets that might support life as we know it—maybe intelligent life… like us. They’re finding hundreds of exoplanets that orbit distant stars and just might have life forms like the plants and animals of our world.
Why? Because the exoplanets are like “Mama Bear”… they’re not too big, not too small; they’re kind of like the Earth… jus-s-st right. And they’re not too close to their sun or too far from it. Again, they’re sort of like the Earth: jus-s-st right.
To a modern scientist, looking for extraterrestrial life means looking outward toward the stars with the assumption that conditions for life out there will be a lot like conditions for life here on Earth… and finding life out there would be the ultimate proof that “we’re not alone.”
Well, folks, there are a couple of problems with that thinking. First, you don’t have to go to all that trouble. If you really want to find extraterrestrial life, you don’t have to open your coffers to fund billion-dollar space astronomy programs… you just have to open your mind. Your mind’s like a radio tuner that’s normally set to your favorite station and mine—the vibrations of the material world and material universe. Most of us assume it’s the only station, but the fact is that there are countless other stations—other worlds and universe in-beyond* of our physical universe that march to a different beat, dance to a different vibration. And we can learn to tune our minds to visit those other worlds. And when we get there, we sometimes find them flourishing with life… conscious life… life that’s sometimes so conscious and bright that it makes us feel like bugs… but in a good, reassuring way, because those brilliant beings only want to love us, not step on us.
So that’s the first problem with modern thinking about extraterrestrial life—the assumption that we have to look outward into the stars to find it… when it’s really right here, all around us, superimposed over our world, flourishing in countless worlds that are invisible but not inaccessible to us.
The second problem is that we expect to find life existing under the same conditions as here on Earth. Most scientists, like most people, assume that life everywhere is based on the same familiar principles of physics and biology as life found in our world… but nearly two decades of inter-dimensional (afterlife) research have convinced me that that’s not at all the case. The fact is, our world is illusory in the bigger picture of reality in virtually all aspects that we take for granted. Life, time, space, gravity, structure, motion—most of the stuff studied and measured by scientists—it’s all illusion. The forms and forces of this world are what eastern mystics for centuries have called “Maya” or “Samsara,” which is the manifestation of pure, genuine divine life or consciousness as it has to transduce down into very dense, heavy vibration to form life in the material universe. This dummied-down force of life comes together as the structures and energies that we have come to accept—consciously, at least—as reality.
Science today is mostly engrossed in the illusion, and the most popular projects to study extraterrestrial life are completely off the mark—looking outward into the stars, instead of in-beyond* into subtler realms of existence.
* “In-beyond” is a term I coined in my new book, The Project, to refer to the direction of looking into other dimensions. Not up or down or left or right. Not outward into the macrocosm of stars and galaxies, and not inward into the microcosm of cells and molecules, but in-beyond: into the worlds of spirit.
