The word soul is an ancient word that attempts to describe the life force inside of us that remains immortal after our earth lives have ended. As you can imagine, the ancient people who tried to understand this, had no idea about computers such as we have today and especially advanced computers which even in our modern society today, we as a society know nothing about.
The mystics of yesterday, when they had mystical experiences (OBE’s) went to primitive places. The mystics of today go to places where more can be known. The secret is never given up, it must always be learned. This is why I’ve always said that the greatest wisdom exists today.
The foundation for wisdom regardless of when it was written is the same yesterday today and tomorrow however, there is often a wide grey area between the foundation of wisdom and understanding it. This is why there are so many interpretations as to what ancient and contemporary wisdom means. Knowledge which leads to understanding explains why. It is one thing to say that we should love one another, it is yet another to know “why” we should do it. When one understands the math which defines love, there is only one interpretation. When all of the variables are filled in the equation, we no longer believe what is righteous… we know; and that is why we are here. The sooner we solve the equation, the sooner the cycle of life and death stops for us and we join a truly immortal community.
