Evidence of a "Something Beyond"

      Sheldrake (1991) writes, "no one has been able to figure out how the brain does store memories.  People have looked for memory traces . . . and after decades of research have failed again and again to find them.  I think this is possibly because they're not there" (pp. 211-212).  He suggests that the brain tunes into memories like a radio tunes into radio waves.

      Pert (1990), after her years of studying neuropeptides and there receptors, showing that neuropeptide receptors are not just in the brain, they are also in the body, comments that she "can no longer make a strong distinction between the brain and the body" (p. 153).  She questions whether or not the mind is in the brain, and if the mind can survive the death of the physical brain.  She states, "I think it is important to realize that information is stored in the brain, and it is conceivable to me that this information could be transformed into some other realm" (p. 158).

      "Heaven on earth" would be a place where there are no more stressors than the soma is able to affectively deal with.  These new concepts give a new perspective, based on scientific discoveries, of the possibility of an existence beyond the physical realm.  Perhaps, there is a place beyond our physical existence that can be attained when one is prepared to shed their physical existence.  Perhaps, there is in addition to a heaven on earth, a heaven beyond earth.
