Astral Projection: to prove, or not to prove?
Astral projection eludes the attention of mainstream science because it is not easily duplicated in a controlled environment such as a lab. Although some natural projectors have demonstrated this ability under professional monitoring, it still needs to be more widely controlled before it can be accepted. The "exception" won't work, it has to be the rule. We lack the tools and technology (due to lack of social and scientific interest) to make this happen at will, but what if we could create a device (like an electromagnetic pulse devise), that could allow astral projection to happen at will? This would allow any human, spiritually developed or otherwise, to have free reign in the astral realm.
There are far reaching implications with this possibility. With any significant advancement or discovery in science, the potential for abuse always exists. Just look at what the discovery of atomic energy did.
Here are the major points that would arise from proving astral projection was real or having a device that would allow us to all project freely.
- I've stated that time and space can be transcended in the astral. What would happen to the financial markets, lottery, elections, and sporting events if their outcome was foreseeable? A literal crumbling of the economy and society would ensue. There would be groups, particularly the government, large businesses, and organized special interest groups that would make every measure to prevent this, even with terminal action.
- Religious beliefs. Although astral projection is known and accepted in many eastern cultures, it is not encouraged in others, like Christianity (I'm not sure what their official position on the subject is but I was raised Catholic and I don't remember anything being said on the subject). Also, in the cultures that do accept this ability, criticism would be drawn because the subject would then have access to a realm normally available only to spiritual adepts.
- Every-day living would be altered. The will to live in the physical world would diminish because we would know (what I already know) that we are more than our physical bodies. To undeveloped souls, this could lead to suicide and listless living. Why would a person, full of problems in physical life, want to live when he can access the glories of the astral? Unbeknownst to him/her, these very problems are helping that person to grow spiritually and are there to learn valuable lessons. This would be worse than any addictive drug in its ability to lure a soul away from physical realities.
One positive area for all would be the healing potential. Sickness can be detected in the aura/astral prior to it being present in the physical. It's much easier to cure an ailment in the finer bodies before it manifests in the physical body.
And of course, on a lighter note, this would bring endless opportunities for unusual travel experiences! Why go to Hawaii if you can go to Saturn or view the construction of the pyramids!? And we could say goodbye to long distance expenses like transportation and phone calls.
Even if astral projection could be proven, I have no doubt that it would be crushed or covered immediately. Maybe astral projection has been proven, and we just don't know about it.
