Common questions on life after death include – What happens? Where do we go? Do we see loved ones? The videos below show the research that different people have done into answering these questions, starting with a video from The Infographics Show named ‘Science Experiment Proves Afterlife is Real’ that summarizes on many of these questions.
Dimethyltryptamine is a natural chemical substance that is produced in many plants and animals, including humans in the liver, lungs and pineal gland. Despite occurring naturally in us, it is famous for being the strongest psychedelic and has a reputation for inducing the biggest changes to our perception of reality.
Graham Hancock is respected researcher in ancient civilizations. His books have sold millions of copies and have been translated into 27 different languages. Some of his greatest research and findings have revealed many facts, secrets and knowledge of ancient Egypt. Some of this has been described as ‘truly mind-blowing’.
‘The famous philosopher Descartes described the pineal gland as the ‘principal seat of the soul.’ You’ve probably heard of this gland being called the ‘third eye,’ a mystical chakra point residing right in the middle of your eyebrows. It turns out these ideas aren’t too far off. The small, rice-sized, pinecone-shaped endocrine organ sits alone in the middle of the brain and at the same level as the eyes.’
Research into the relationship between memory and the brain is offering a different insight into how these work together. It is commonly though that memory is stored ‘in the brain’. Despite this, the brain has been described by neuroscientists as ‘a transmitter and receiver of signals’ like a computer. As such, some are opting to the ‘possibility that memory is stored on a cloud similar to that which modern technology uses’. From this, your brain transmits and receives the signals to retrieve the memory.
The masons are an organization well known for their secrecy. However, some researchers and ex-masons have given insight into their beliefs. This includes a strong belief in the afterlife, including claims from an old mason that they believed you had to pass away to get to the next degree of masonry and gain it in Sirius (the star often shown in Masonry and Ancient Egypt, where they also strongly believed in the afterlife, hence mummification).
The Emerald Tablets were written by Thoth, a leader of ancient Egypt that is often referred to as ‘a God’. These tablets contain ancient wisdom on how reality and the Universe work, with reference to the Hermetic Principles. ‘Acknowledging that they were created on an imperishable material, suggests that they held the knowledge in high regards and is less likely to be fable like some critics suggest.’
