To me the inter-dimensional world appears somewhat like the almost tactile dark matter of the universe, while the spiritual realm is more abstract, similar to the mysterious nature of dark energy.
How can it be said that spirits are fiction and that nothing happens or exists in other dimensions when we can only verify the properties of a mere 4% of our physical universe? We seem to know a lot about our biological selves because we can physically study the most evident part of our being, but the higher nature of human capability has been largely ignored, due to the divide between science and religion. (Note: I’m not a member of any religion.)
Although our higher-level aspects represent the largest component of our being and dark energy constitutes about 73% of our cosmos, practically nothing is known about either. Since ancient times we have been seeking to explain the meaning of our existence at a level above our physical evolution, but few answers have emerged. Perhaps for the same reasons as cosmologists and astrophysicists require more advanced mathematics to explain the largely unseen portion of the universe, we need to develop our higher-level knowledge to access the positive aspects of our spiritual being.
While dark energy in its vastness can be compared with the phenomena associated with the spiritual world, the properties of dark matter might soon bring knowledge about how inter-dimensional activity is conducted. Some recent breakthroughs show that, although invisible, dark matter appears to have substance as it demonstrates gravitational effects on its density. The similar almost tangible nature of the inter-dimensional plane suggests that further study might reveal the forces separating it from our familiar level of reality.
Now that physicists acknowledge and attempt to prove that the scientific truths of quantum mechanics must be equally verifiable at larger scales, it must spark a profound change in the way we see ourselves existentially. It’s mind boggling to grasp that some scientific investigators have hypothesized that our universe could merely be a 3-D projection on a 2-dimensional screen at the edges of our universe or that we could be the creations of an advanced civilization’s manipulation of matter through computer programming. Is our role as an evolving species merely to reproduce to provide more advanced players for the next generation, or are we meant to progress by realizing the potential of the spirit within?
As we delve further into the similarities between the microcosm of our material composition and outward into the macrocosm of the universe, we appear to be the constructs of an incomprehensible yet remarkable reality. Once we consider that we are not only comprised of the infinitesimally tiny components of our atoms, but part of a much grander scheme in the universe, it’s easier to fathom that our spirits represent the more advanced part of our existence.
At the physical level, we’re expanding ever outward into the universe, as though it was intended that we strive to explore the expanse beyond. All of our experiences have accumulated into our reality as individuals and as a civilization and we have the power to move past the negative interference and to add new positive content that expands our spiritual horizons.
