Our Life After DeAth. A firsthand Account from an 18th-Century Scientist and Seer . eMANueL SWeDeNBOrG translated by George f. Dole introduction by. LIFE AFTER DEATH. Problems of the Future Life and its Nature. BY. JAMES H. HYSLOP, Ph.D., LL.D.

So if there be any information available with regard to the life after.
Before that we presumed cells were only full of water. In fact the microtubules form a vast skeletal framework inside the cell. Microtubules are long cylinder structures only 25 nanometers in diameter and hollow inside. Hence, the entire cytoskeleton inside a human cell is actually a gigantic molecular computer. Sir Roger Penrose was quite instrumental in bringing this to the public attention with his book where he pointed out that the microtubule computer inside a single neuron cell has about the same switching capacity as the switching capacity of the entire brain. This is an astronomical increase in brain power that we have never been aware of! Naturally these signals travel at the speed of light.
It is also very good in explaining how it is that Father helps us, when we cry out for help. There is also a fascinating glimpse of the issue of our being frequently in spirit during the sleep state, and thus being able to recognise many old friends when we finally arrive in spirit. I have created a pdf: The Life Elysian A newly printed copy can be had here , as secondhand copies are now scarce. This is now available in Kindle e-book format at site.
The Gate of Heaven by Robert James Lees I was frankly initially somewhat disappointed with this book, the final book in a set of three, when I first read it. I probably should not have been now that I have read it again very closely.
This book confirms the intriguing, and critically important spiritual information conveyed in both the Padgett Messages and the Urantia Book that there lies a dimension beyond the Spirit World. Some differentiation between those that pass through the Gate and those who do not.
I could not initially find that, and now conclude, on a careful re-reading, that I was too harsh. I believe that Aphraar had as his mandate, the exclusive use of the Bible, and he never attempted any other source.
The reason for that is I believe there is very little error in this book. And it does help if the first few books you read are accurate.
This book is not one that portrays any philosophy of how the spirit world is organised. And is somewhat limited in explaining progression. But it does a really great job of trying to explain how they live, move, talk, what they do, what their houses are like, how they make music etc.
The final chapter on the education of children is really good too. While we are never going to totally understand how things are in the spiritual realm until we get there, this book gets as close as any I have found. One chapter I would have initially preferred to have seen left out, and that is the one on aliens. Not that I am a disbeliever in that topic, but as presented one gets the idea that Mars is covered with inhabited settlements.
Pdf Copy here: Spiritworld. Actually however, it is a very different book, and is only partly her work. It is a large number of case studies of a human working with a celestial support group tasked with awakening these recently departed folks - presumably in the Astral Plane, although that is not stated.
Finally I have a very clear idea of how the many of us typically awaken in the next realm. All too many mortals awake into darkness and confusion, with minds in a dream state, unable to see anything or hear anything.
Some are relatively quickly taught how to awaken their spiritual sight, and hearing, and then progress as expected. Others relatively few may apparently take centuries to come out of this zombie like state.
These are not folks that are bad either, just folks who never gave a thought to life after death. I did not imagine obsession of one spirit by another could occur.
This book also has two very interesting sections right at the end. One is on the subject of thoughts, and how they actually influence the mind. The other is on the location of what I suspect is the First Sphere. Unlike the majority of books in this section, this is not a tale by a deceased mortal channeled through a medium.
Caroline Larsen actually personally experienced all that she describes in an out of body state. She was able to travel to all of the four lower Spirit Spheres. There is an extensive coverage of ex-mortals still unable to come to terms with their new state, post death. No where in her tale does she describe an Astral Plane such as is described in two other books on this page. However she does state that the sphere where children are raised is in the Third Sphere.
However the numbering of spheres by authors is very problematical, and that may actually simply mean Summerland, which is in the First Sphere A pdf can be found here: Caroline D Larsen My Travels in the Spirit World.
Ward Received in , this book is a phenomenally detailed description of the dark planes of the First Spirit Sphere, and also the Astral Plane. Quite useful classifications of these and even the higher spheres are used in this book, and although these may not easily align with the Spheres described through James Padgett, nevertheless they seem very descriptive and useful. The Astral Plane has to my knowledge not been as carefully explored and communicated in any work that I have ever read, and this seems a great pity, since many mortals apparently pass to this plane where they may reside for a considerable period, till eventually passing up into the Spirit Spheres, or down into the dark planes.
It also thus gives a lot of background to the phenomenon discovered by Dr Irene Hickman, and also Dr Carl Wickland of obsession and possession. This book can be downloadd on site, as it is available though Kessinger Publishing. Ward This book concentrates on the Astral Plane.
That statement may mean nothing at all to the reader, as it is rare for any of these books to be so specific, and one often wonders where the spirit is located, who is describing life after death.
This is the finest description of the Astral Plane I have ever read, and makes it clear that some people go here after death, while others go to the Spirit Spheres. There are also excellent descriptions of other inhabitants of these planes, both elementals and astral shells. There are also evil elementals, and evil astral mortals.
The author has been able to see and converse with earthbound spirits since she was a child. This book should be good enough to convince even skeptics that folks are alive after death.
It is a very good coverage of earthbound spirits, also called ghosts. But because she has no experience of those who have crossed over, it does not cover the situation that the majority of us will experience. This book is current, and should be available in many book stores.
Stead, a man of considerable significance in journalistic circles in his lifetime, and who died when the Titanic sank.
It is his story of passing over and spending time in the transition zone, which he has called the Blue Island. Interestingly, he did not travel through a tunnel of light, nor did he see any light immediately after his death on the Titanic. Also interestingly, he reports that all the dead traveled together in a group to the transition zone. It is a good coverage of the issue of communication by thought, as also the technique of materializing and transferring thoughts to mediums.
This book can be downloaded as a pdf: The Blue Island. Letters from the Light Written through the hand of Elsa Barker. This book is based predominantly on the Astral Plane, and the spirit also touches on a number of curious things that I have verified elsewhere, such as sleeping survivors and the issue of eating. But the Astral Plane is rather different to the Spirit Spheres and unless one is aware of this, one would find some things quite contradictory to other spirit experiences.
I have created a pdf copy of the portions of this text which are in the public domain in other words - the original publication of Here is the pdf: Letters from a living dead man. I have also made an extract of the chapter on Sleeping Survivors: Sleeping survivors. Testimony of Light by Helen Greaves Quite a recent book, published in and is the communications of Frances Banks.
For 25 years she was a teaching nun, based in South Africa. But her ever inquiring mind led her out of the Anglican order, and into more general psychology and spirituality.
This story is at its best when she tells exactly what she is experiencing, and far less so when she repeats that which she formulated on earth. She too believes in reincarnation, but this topic does not form a large part of this book. She describes the Healing Hospital, or Station where she initially woke after death, and subsequently served. This book does not have as much detail on the after life as many of the books I have recommended, but for all that it is interesting.
As the copyright is still in force, there are no pdfs of this book. This book, published in is an extensive coverage of the dark spheres, but not quite as extensive as Gone West. The same topics are covered in the Padgett Messages, but here we have an entire book devoted to the subject.
Franchezzo passes into darkness, and details his extensive journey back to the light, and later, back to help others in the dark. Some of the descriptions of cities ruled by dreadful ex-mortals are quite terrifying. In fact I would recommend against reading this book, unless you already have a clear idea of the wonderful places in the next realm.
There are descriptions in this book of low levels of consciousness that I would think might be called Thought Forms. But for me the most important material was a very good description of the Astral Plane.
It seems that our definitions of earth bound spirits may in many cases be inaccurate, as it appears there are also a significant number of astral shells which once housed a mortal, but no longer do, as also thought forms some of which can attain a degree of independence. Probably these are the classic ghosts that no one seems to be able to help.
I also wonder how many of the attachments that Dr Irene Hickman and Dr Carl Wickland described may fall into some of the categories described in this chapter.
In this book I look at curious aspects like the Dalai Lama, why regression delivers past life information that so closely parallels the current life, even the participants of this life involved in the drama and sometimes things like birth marks. In sixteen chapters and pages, I also look at spirits who try to reincarnate, and those who think they have reincarnated but are merely obsessing a living human. I cover: Eastern beliefs. The Bible. Where is the mind?
Past Life Memories. The Law of Attraction. Trying to Reincarnate. The soul and the spirit body. Sleeping Survivors. Non-survivors of death.
Getting out of Hell. Progress in spirit. Hearing from famous spirits. Indwelling Spirits - the perfect Guide. What really happens after death? This is really a tour through many sources of spiritualist literature that have been published in the last years. Those pro and those against reincarnation. But as far as I can see, there are solid arguments against any aspect that one might review. And the more one studies these things, the more curious it is that so many others have not.
This book is now available in e-book format at site. This book has now been revised, as of October The cytoskeleton is known to remain viable up to 30 minutes after neuronal brain death, EEG flatline.
Apparently so in the former case because uT consciousness is the only consciousness still existing after neuronal flatline occurs. Now consider your computer downloading a copy of Gone With the Wind which is a 3 hour movie, in 10 seconds. Of course the computer is not conscious because it has no human body in it. But the uT system does.
And by the way human memory is now believed to reside in the solid state structure of the uTs  Craddock et al. The uT consciousness then views the Afterlife dream in real time. Hence, while bedside observers might see the patient die in a few seconds, the dearly departed could actually be spending months or years in a paradisiacal existence in Heaven during that short moment. This is because of the vast time dilation caused by uT speed.
Life after death then is actually life before death and only appears to occur after death. It is no longer a valid scientific roadblock. Now we must here say more about the sensory quality of this Afterlife dream and the first thing to realize is that unlike an ordinary dream it will not be only visual. Nocturnal dreams are mainly visual because vision is 3 the only one of the 5 senses which is completely shut off during sleep.
Touch and sound are not shut off. A loud noise or a sharp poke will quickly wake someone up. But Life After Death is different. When the brain flatlines all 5 senses are shut off. Therefore we expect that the Life After Death dream state will exhibit all 5 senses.
We will not only be able to see things, we will be able to feel things, hear them, smell them and taste them. Hence we expect Life After Death to be far more real than an ordinary nocturnal dream! In fact most people would probably decline an offer to live life all over again. I think I would. But the phenomenon of Life After Death as historically described offers something far more miraculous than simply a rerun.
At first this appeared to be a problem for my microtubule theory. How could the brain conjure up the image of a fully grown body from memory if it had never had one? This seemed like a logical impossibility. Long studies have shown that human growth is caused by both cell division proliferation and growth size of the cells  Winick, This tells us that if the cell division process becomes attenuated our body will have many millions of missing cells.
How could the human brain possibly conjure up from memory what it would be like to have a body containing all these missing cells? It seemed to me to be an impossibility that could not be solved. But it turns out that there is a remarkable solution to this problem.
It is a fact that virtually all of the brain cells that you will ever have in life are created during the nine months before you're born. We are born with about billion neurons in the brain and these are sufficient to last a lifetime, indeed sufficient to carry us through 18 years of growth. The main reason for this is that the brain uses a shotgun approach to make the brain neurons connect up to target body cells. It shoots them out like a shotgun hoping that some of them will hit the right target and then eliminates the ones that miss.
Of course this approach calls for producing a large overabundance of neurons. Along the 4 way of course it is obvious that the body must produce enough neurons to serve a theoretically fully grown body. This number is apparently genetically determined. The brain must have some genetic information about how many neurons will be required for a fully grown body. The question then becomes what happens to these extra neurons when the body doesn't grow to full size?
The answer to that question arises from a very intriguing source. Many years ago doctors noticed that when someone had a limb amputated in many cases they would report the feeling that they had a "phantom limb". Investigation soon shows that the cause of this is that even though the limb is missing, the motor sensory map of the limb homuncular cortex map still exists in the brain. Inadvertently on occasions this motor sensory map of the limb can become active and the person feels like he has the missing limb even though he has never had one.
Well, when I discovered this I immediately saw that it is possible that the extra neurons which were produced to subserve the missing ungrown body in the case of a growth deficit, could become likewise active and produce an entire "phantom body"! That in fact this phantom body would exist even if you didn't notice it. I immediately saw that in the Afterlife this phantom body could become the biological origin of the "Glorified Body" that is predicted to exist in Heaven by the theologians.
I had discovered the biological origin of the Glorified Body of the Bible! Now some might object that phantom limbs exhibit only limited fragmentary performance.
How could a phantom body be a Glorified Body? Again, it turns out there is a biological rationale for this. It has been noticed that when a person has a finger amputated sensations from adjacent fingers transfer to the phantom finger. Practice and experience transfer also  Ramachandran and Hirstein, This transfer takes place between the neurons in the homuncular brain map.
Now, the neurons of the phantom body are homogeneously interwoven throughout the entire neuronal body map, and if we can have transfer between adjacent fingers, how much more transfer would we expect between adjacent neurons?
This means that the neural map of the "phantom body" consists of neurons that have been absorbing experience, sensation, and memory from the entire neural map of 5 the physically existing body throughout life. This would tell us that the phantom body is all set and ready to go if it only had the missing body cells to connect to! Of course the Afterlife body will be synthesized or "dreamed up" by the microtubules of the brain and doesn't need the missing body cells for its Afterlife performance, it only needs the neurons.
So it appears to me that the way is clear for the appearance of a Glorified Body fully grown body with its Eternal Life and Beatific Vision, in the Afterlife. Before leaving the phantom Body, I would mention that although I arrived at the Phantom Body theoretically from modern biology, another far more famous person arrived at the same conclusion experimentally years ago.
Admiral Horatio Nelson the most famous military figure in British maritime history actually had a phantom right arm after it's loss in a battle at Tenerife in Lord Horatio Nelson ca. Lord Nelson believed that the phenomenon was "direct evidence of the existence of the Soul So Lord Nelson discovered the Phantom Body years before me and immediately recognized it's theological significance! Finally, before we leave this section on Microtubule Resurrection, there is one last sticky issue that we have to consider.
It is clear that we go to Heaven at the moment of death, but when exactly is the moment of death 6 and how does the microtubule system know when it is? There are people who die and are then revived minutes later.
Does this person go to Heaven and then return? How would the microtubules system know when the body is permanently dead and how would it determine the exact moment of death? I don't know the answer to this and all I can do is take an educated guess. I suspect that the Microtubule Resurrection system does not send us to Heaven until it detects that the Microtubule Resurrection system itself is being destroyed. This would require massive brain damage and in most cases would be produced by natural brain atrophy within 10 or 15 minutes after clinical death.
In other words we apparently have found the long sought for "instant of death" and it appears to taker place 10 to 20 minutes after the doctor pronounces us dead. At that final instant the cytoskeleton system sends us to Heaven and it may be that the last act of the microtubule-cytoskeleton resurrection system of the brain is to self-destruct before it leaves.
It is known that brain neurons are capable of programmed self-destruction Apoptosis and uses this mechanism quite regularly to prune neural circuitry during life.
It may be that when the Soul finally decides to depart the body for Heaven, it has no intention of ever returning. Now then, in the first 11 pages of this chapter on Life After Death I have outlined the origin and history of the belief and have actually discovered the world's first and only credible scientific explanation of how it could work.
While there is no experimental proof that this mechanism is correct at the present time, I do think there is enough evidence to put a scientific probability on it. My opinion is that there is something like 1 chance in 3 that this theory is actually correct and that there is a literal Life After Death. Meanwhile recent medical advances have demonstrated that a surprising confirmation of the theory may be closer at hand that we think.
A Possible Experimental Proof From Cardiac Resuscitation Hypothetically speaking it is obvious that the most direct way to prove that there is such a thing as "microtubule consciousness" would be to cause a subject's brain to go into EEG flatline for a while and find out if he dreamed anything.
Since EEG flatline means that all synaptic activity is zero. Of course such an experiment is impossible because you would kill the person by doing it. Amazingly however, hundreds of cardiac arrest patients have reported just exactly that, namely, that while their brain was "EEG flatlined" they actually had a vivid hallucinatory 7 dream.
The neuron's in the brain cease firing completely within 20 seconds after cardiac arrest.
