I was listening to that George Noory fellow on the radio one night last week while driving home. He was talking to someone who suggested that perhaps things we perceive as ghostly visions could well be leftover energy. Energy doesn’t begin or end in the classic sense; it merely transfers from one form to another. So the idea of ghosts being the energy leftovers of what they were before made sense to me.
While I’ve never seen anything I’d refer to as a ghost, I do believe, as Teilhard de Chardin suggested, we are spiritual beings having a physical experience and not the other way around. From that paradigm, energy as an element of spirit doesn’t seem far-fetched at all.
could anything be
as real as the smile passing
between you and me?
My expressions are often subjected to the limitations of text, so I’m always pleased when someone finds a way to give my words a little more impact. Which is why I’m sharing this piece of visual art. It was put together by the talented folks at iFractal and sent my way by Frank.
