You’re at physiotherapy, that mix of massage and relaxation (…Not! because you’re screwed and in pain) and hear the folowing remark from a guy on the bed just beside yours: “One thing I have asked from the LORD: that before I die I see a spirit and an ET! “.
Last week there was a a lot of noise because NASA announced the discovery of 7 Earth-like planets, all with the potential to have life. What naiveté (or even arrogance) to think that we are the only ones in the Universe. It is as if ants, in an anthill at the Amazon, spent their days debating if they are the only species of the entire forest.
No, my dear ant friends, according to experts, there are approximately 2 million different species in this forest’s fauna, including more than 1,300 species of birds and 300 mammals. This is in the Amazon alone. And also no, my dear Earthling fellows. There are 8 planets in the Solar System and it is estimated that our galaxy, the Milky Way, has 100-400 billion stars. And nowadays, with the help of the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers estimate 2 trillion galaxies in the Universe.
Assuming that each of these galaxies has at least 100 billion solar systems and that each of these has at least one planet … It’s a matter of pure math. Cracking the numbers on a bar paper napkin, after 2 beers:
1 planet x 100 billion stars x 2 trillion galaxies = do you really still think that we are the only ones, the smartest, the most advanced, the “Kings of the Universe”?
And as far as spirits go, I believe there are people who are born with the power to see them, like the kid from the Sixth Sense, but if they’re not born into a family of mediums, this can scare the hell out of them. Others can see nothing beyond the material world, but as they develop their spirituality, they may gradually have access to this other dimension.
Part of the esoteric literature explores the possibility of material and ethereal planets, like the book “Esoteric Buddhism”. Has it ever crossed your mind that when an ET dies it may also become a spirit?
So, dear physiotherapy neighbor, may God grant your heart’s desire, but hopefully that won’t also become your cause of death: fright. You finally see a spirit and an ET, but as you are not prepared for it, you literally get scared to death.
One thing is certain: a person who makes this kind of comment is certainly prepared. I think his cause of death would probably be more of happiness, gratitude, and wonder.
Happiness to finally see that we are not alone, to see that life goes on, even on other realms. Gratitude for having guardian spirits who only want what’s best for us. And wonder to maybe find out that, just like in the movie “The Arrival,” there are ET’s helping the Earth survive such turmoil.
