The Cat and the Plane

(Submitted by the author)

Why do we always assume that when someone dies they have ceased to exist on the 'earth-plane' (so to speak) and are in heaven, being reincarnated - or simply don't exist anymore? Could it not be that they do still exist on the 'earth-plane', but within a realm which simply requires a different kind of perception to the one which we're normally used to using?

To give an example: a cat can see the shape of an airplane in the sky - and hear it - but doesn't realise (we don't think!) that it's, let's say, an Air France Boeing 747, unlike a person observing the same plane. - By the same token, just because we humans can't perceive something, doesn't mean that it's not happening or doesn't exist!

Of course, their molecules stay behind & are absorbed into everything, we all have a bit of Jesus in our bodies for instance & then at some point a bit of Hitler as well.......... Nobody ever ceases to exist, all is recycled............

H'mm, very interesting point, Keithy! Hadn't thought of that! - And you're absolutely right - not EVERYONE assumes - and not always - thank God! X

And, don't forget, we are all children of the sun, literally, all energy on Earth is a little piece of sunshine, ask the new lead singer for Depeche Mode, Sir Stephen Hawking!
