In our last dialogue we broached the subject of the possibility of a Fifth State of Existence, the known four being solids, plasmas, liquids and gases. At this point we will now refer to this new potential area as a 5SE, and an occurrences in which there is a chance of this happening we can call a 5SE Event. It helps to have conversations when there is an established and accepted terminology. On we go.
For centuries and beyond humankind has known there is more to what we normally perceive as everyday life. The burial sites of Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon peoples have been discovered with plant and animal offerings, and there can be no argument as to the afterlife beliefs of the Egyptians. Many more examples could be cited but there are other reference works to catalogue them. The point is that we as human beings know there is something beyond our limited life spans but it somehow got hijacked and distorted in one direction by organized religion (I give Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Shinto a pass on this one, they actually have it pretty correct. Notice which ones are left? I’ll let you do the deductive reasoning and process of elimination) and out right dismissed as preposterous buffoonery by organized science.
This forum is not meant to rehash all of the old and stale arguments that we always seem to have when it comes down to the contest between faith and facts. I’ve have yet to meet a member of the science camp who is not in some way atheistic while most on the other side more often than not have the blind tunnel vision that is so frustrating to converse with. In stating that I will fire off this comment;
To think that we are nothing more than electricity, carbon and water is arrogant and to believe that dinosaurs walked with men is ignorant.
Now that I’ve offended everyone equally we can move on because fossil records and math don’t lie and mortally wounded people suddenly see the light when the expiration date on their life comes due.
With all of the eye witness accounts, audio, visual, temperature and barometric recordings and reams of empirical (yes, I said empirical,) evidence there is enough material to start laying a foundation for theories, so let’s start, and remember what I said in the first article about not believing a phenomenon just occurred does not make it less real.
There has been much discussion and skepticism on the recent interest in those circular anomalies that show up in photographs, commonly called orbs. While a majority of the photos do indeed show something that a believer wants to be an orb, it usually is just dust, snow, rain, blurry flying insects, you get the idea, and this is what the detractors and doubters use as their argument. However, there are some that show a very distinct and coherent spherical 5SE event (see how easy that was to just throw in there?)
Not to say that the orbs themselves are spirits, ghosts or phantoms but they have shown up in random photographs of purportedly haunted locations or graveyards and other places with so called “higher spirt energy levels” (we are now approaching that slippery slope of being lumped in with the well –meaning but overly whimsical crowd that always seem to have an opinion on the evening news about some local paranormal sighting. They are hard to take seriously and should keep away from the cameras except for when they are being interviewed about legalizing marijuana or how to join a drum circle at the park on Earth Day).
With a background in radio communications, radar frequencies, antenna systems and atmospheric effects I devised a fledgling hypotheses regarding the imagery of orbs that is sometimes hard to reconcile but is nonetheless a part of our world. In the next section we will go down the rabbit hole and take a look at the Super-Nature of Science.
