Transmundane Thursday

A professor at the University of Kentucky was giving a lecture on the
super-natural. To get a feel for his audience, he asks:
"How many people here believe in ghosts?" About 90 students raise their
hands. "Well, that's a good start. Out of those of you who believe in
ghosts, do any of you think you have seen a ghost?"

About 40 students raise their hands. "That's really good. I'm really glad you take this seriously. Has anyone here ever talked to a ghost?"

About 15 students raise their hand. "Has anyone here ever touched a ghost?"

Three students raise their hands. "That's fantastic. Now let me ask you one question further... Have any of you ever made love to a ghost?"

Way in the back, Bubba raises his hand.

The professor takes off his glasses, and says, "Son, of all the years I've
been giving this lecture, no one has ever claimed to have made love to a
ghost. You've got to come up here and tell us about your experience."

The big redneck student replied with a nod and a grin, and began to make
his way up to the podium. When he reached the front of the room, the
professor asks, "So, Bubba, tell us what it's like to have sex with a ghost?"

Bubba replied, "Shiiiit! From way back thar I thought you said........."Goats"


Yesterday I posted a hypothesis I ran across that is really intriguing: The hypothesis holds that we are nonphysical entities who are able to exist in the physical aspect of reality because of our physical body, but that when our physical body dies, we as Self, change our point of view to nonphysical reality. In effect, we exist before and after our current lifetime. Dawn followed with her own comment on this hypothesis: "We are spiritual beings having a human experience." (Wayne Dyer)

Whether you believe in the paranormal, the Almighty or intelligent life among us you cannot honestly state that there has never been anything you couldn't explain with scientific logic or logical reasoning. I'll predict that during our lifetime we have a 1% chance of actually seeing concrete proof of beings or paranormal existence. That's not to say it doesn't exist now, it only means we do not have the means necessary to prove it.

I'm not even sure why I'm driven to investigate the paranormal. Yes I've always been intrigued by the paranormal but never to the extent of actually going out looking for it. Oh I have read sites for the last year or so regarding paranormal stories...but that was easy, it wasn't me doing the actual investigation. I think I've told of my own experiences, well a couple of them anyways. I believe one statement given to me by a grandparent stands out clearly, "Embrace it and don't be scared of it." What she meant by that I have no idea. But I can honestly say that she obviosuly had some sort of recognition of the paranormal. Unfortunately, she died before we ever discussed that comment.

Will I ever post proof of my investigations? Probably not...because one mans beliefs is another mans follies. Have I got something already? Yes. Concrete? No. But I have it and I believe it, so thats important to me. Email me if your interested...and if I don't know you as a faithful reader/friend, don't expect a reply.

One thought has occurred to me...what if there is another parallel universe our spirits ascend to after our physical life is complete? Could it be that most "evidence" collected is actually taken from weaknesses of the wall seperating the two universes? Star Trek: The Next Generation touched briefly on this theory during one of their episodes. While the Enterprise helps a Romulan science vessel, an accident occurs which forces Geordi LaForge and Ro Laren slightly out of "phase," causing them to become undetectable to everyone but each other. As a result, the crew thinks they are dead and make arrangements for their funerals, even though they are closer than the crew realize. Yea I know...geeky but then again look at the flip phones nowadays. Looks like the original Star Trek communicators!

Ok..what is a parallel universe? A parallel universe is most times called a hypothetical, alternate universe that co-exsists along side our own universe.
Some people believe that spirits or ghosts come from an alternate universe, and they are seen in our world because they have crossed over the boundaries. Researchers also point out that spirits try to talk to us, but are prohibited because they are not from our world. Maybe there are portals from which they can travel between the two universes. Psychics and paranormal researchers have long suspected one or more parallel universes, and have often speculated that there may be doorways or "portals" in certain areas that allow entities to travel into our dimension. Many old Indian burial grounds seem to act as portals, for reasons unknown, other than the Indians consciously located their burial grounds in places that they felt were close to the after-death realm. Other non-Indian cemeteries are also suspected portal sites, probably for the same reasons.

Yes it's all theory and there's no solid proof any of this exists. But wouldn't it be cool if someday soon, like 2010, solid proof exists? Traveling through portals to other universes, or even within our own, would be amazing. The human race evolving to accept the proof and embracing it.

Just a theory...

The paranormal has always interested me as well, but like you I have never really delved into the mysteries of it all. I believe that there is definitely something to all the unexplainables out there though, and that dream I had was as real as could be. Odd don't you think, how people all over the world have shared similar experiences?

I have always liked the thought of time travel...maybe we could teleport to whichever century we'd like to be in. LOL!

Hi, blog friend!

I love that joke...especially now that Kentucky is my neighbor...LOL.

Hope you're doing great. I'll probably be around a "little bit more" after I get into my own place...but I'm having a blast right now with writing, boats, friends, church, play rehearsal and life itself.

Take care of you.
