I am open to the possibility of the existence of a collective consciousness from the non-physical realm. I've read exhaustively about Universal Laws like the Law of Attraction(the book "The Secret" became a bestseller). I am open to the possibility that a group consciousness in a higher realm may be able to advise us about the LOA and the inter-workings of the universe. I have heard some use terms like "infinite intelligence" or an "expression of unconditional love" to describe the group consciousness in the spirital realm.
Professor, I freely admit that I simply don't know for certain if anything exists beyond this Earthly dimension. And contrary to what others on here may say, no one else knows for sure either. I think we all probably would like to think that there is a higher intelligence than what we have to offer in our physical dimension. Am I a skeptic by nature? Yes. Most scientists are. However, I do feel a spiritual connection to the Universe. The atoms in my body- the same atoms that originated somewhere within exploding star billions of years ago - are still vibrating away. The thoughts I think affect my emotions, which, in turn, affect the frequency with which those atoms vibrate. Maybe when that vibration is in perfect alignment with Source Energy in the non-physical realm , good things manifest in our lives. When our vibration is out of alignment, sickness, disease, and other bad things happens. It's quantum physics really...
Classify me as a skeptic or an agnostic, if you will. That would be the scientist in me.
I do,however, sense a spiritual part of me. Maybe it's a longing for something more, maybe it's just the romantic in me. Hell, I don't know, maybe I just want unconditional love that is available for all to exist somewhere in the universe. That's the non-scientist in me.
Bottomline, yes I am very skeptical of anything supernatural. But I am open-minded. I do think we always have to be careful not to create something that doesn't exist just because we want it to exist. I think we humans do that a lot. Maybe that's what I'm doing when I say there may be a spiritual realm.
When it comes to these matters, I think it's okay to be confused. None of us has all the answers. I distrust those who profess to have ascertained certainty in matters of spirituality.
Professor, I respect your knowledge a lot. I would love to hear what you think on this topic.Advertisement

I guess the confusing thing for me is people who say they are Christians but do not go to church. IT seems like a contradiction to me. But it is not my place to judge.

There's possibilities of something beyond our understanding being in control but imo it's an extremely small possibility. I believe scientist are on the right track as far as digging into the answers and are learning more everyday as scientific technology progresses.
I believe the religions of the world, past and present, are man created. I have a difficult time with the thinking that supernatural deities revealed themselves to a few people and asked them to spread the "word." Also revealed to others what is expected of the humans on the planet, and the penalties and rewards if the don't believe, without no more evidence than what was written many centuries ago.
