The Multiverse in Faith
Doorways or Portals
A reading of the Bible and the Gnostic Gospels gives a different theory on the multiverse. They speak of Heaven, Hell, and Earth as we know it, all existing in the same place, but perhaps in different planes of reality. It may open up possibilities that explain some of what we have come to know as paranormal activity, and even how a soul passes from the living at the moment of death.
When you think of the living there is no doubt that there is an energy, a force within us. A spark of life. Yet we look at the bodies of the dead, it is plain that they an empty vessel and that there is no spark or energy whatsoever left in them. Wherever the soul goes when we die must exist in the same place on another plane, and death simply opens a portal or a door that allows the soul to pass. Whether in involves the guidance or accompaniment of a loved one, or the embodiment of a Reaper, the passage is invisible to us and leaves an empty shell behind.
Human sentience is measured in electrical impulses in brain waves and mental activity. The mystery that explains life and death in terms of how the soul arrives and leaves will remain mysteries until someone experiences death and comes back and describes it for us.
Spirits and Ghosts
I have never really believed in ghosts as represented in novels and movies, but in the context we have just explored I am willing to accept them as troubled souls who for one reason or another have failed to find their way through the door, or been prevented from passing through that door.
There are many reasons that can be expressed which might cause a soul to have problems with their transition to the next plane. I do not profess to understand the specifics and would not conjecture at this time. However, people have provided ample demonstrations of apparitions and spectral visions which can be taken as being related to the spirit of a soul that has been trapped in this plane. How that soul would be released, again, I am regrettably ignorant, but it is an unfortunate truth that there are an abundance of hucksters and charlatans who prey on those in pain for monetary gain.
It is also possible that people are harmed by some apparitions not so much by the apparition itself but by their own fears and a weakness of faith. A malevolent spirit would I think be able to detect weakness on some level, and manifestations of possession have been documented in the past. The catalyst to solving any of these issues is finding the way to open the channel that allows that soul whether good or evil to leave this plane and find its way to the place where it belongs.
Religion And The Resurrection
In the Bible there is a brief discussion about the winding sheets in which Jesus was wrapped after the resurrection. The men (disciples) go into the sepulcher and comment on the linens Jesus was wrapped in and how they were found on the platform where the body had been left. The consensus was that they were left on the platform in the same condition they had been when Jesus was wrapped in them, and the cloth that tied them around them was still wrapped around them. That means that when Jesus rose He came out of the sheets without disturbing the windings. That would mean that He simply ceased to be in one place and was then in another place without moving. It suggests that his body passed from one plane of reality to another which is consistent with the ability to pass through multiple universes or dimensions at will.
In the 40 days after His resurrection Jesus traveled widely and appeared in diverse places. It was said He could literally walk through walls. The concept we have explored here is a perfect fit with the Biblical writings of Christs activities prior to his ascension.
Mary Magdalene was the first to encounter Christ after the resurrection. She reached out for Him, but was admonished not to touch Him because He had not yet ascended to His Father. Yet when He visited Thomas He to let Thomas touch His wounds to show that He had indeed been crucified. So Christ has shown himself corporeal and incorporeal at will.
The Shroud of Turin is a documentary of the Crucifixion of Christ. An image so thin shaving with a razor will remove it. It shows the scourging, the beatings, the crown of thorns, the crucifixion itself, and the piercing with the Spear of Destiny of the cardiac sack that bled out. It can’t be duplicated, and it is Biblically perfect. His ascension explained as rising into the clouds, can only end with His passing from this world into another, the same place from which He will return. At the end of the day it seems to be perfectly reasonable in my mind to accept this confluence of worlds with gateways through which we pass.
The Basis of the Parallel Universe in Faith
A Level 3 parallel universe is a consequence of the many worlds interpretation from quantum physics in which every single quantum possibility inherent in the quantum wave function becomes a real possibility in some reality. When the average person thinks of a parallel universe, they are probably thinking of Level 3 parallel universes.
Level 3 parallel universes are different from the others posed because they take place in the same space and time as our own universe. You have no way to access them. You have never had and will never have contact with any Level 1 or 2 universe, but you are continually in contact with Level 3 universes every moment of your life, every decision you make, causes a split of your “now” self into an infinite number of future selves, all of which are unaware of each other.
Though we talk of the universe “splitting,” this isn’t precisely true. From a mathematical standpoint, there’s only one wave function, and it evolves over time. The superpositions of different universes all coexist simultaneously in the same infinite-dimensional Hilbert space. These separate, coexisting universes interfere with each other, yielding the bizarre quantum behaviors.
