Black Holes at the Center of Galaxies

I also did some research on the Web about physics and cosmology to see if any of the latest theories could help me verify whether my death meditation experience had been a vision of some unknown reality or just an elaborate daydream. I searched for information about black holes and learned that the concept of a black hole started in the early 1900’s with Einstein’s work on relativity. The theory was that a star like our sun would eventually explode and implode simultaneously in the form of a supernova. The implosion would compact matter so densely, that an intense gravity would result that would even prevent light from escaping. Formulas showed that most of the matter in the original star would be crushed to an infinitely small point.

Later some scientists who were watching the explosion of a supernova discovered what they believe to be the first verifiable black hole after the light of the explosion died away a few years later. Probably the most interesting fact I discovered involved scientists who were studying the orbits of stars at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. The orbits of these stars seemed to pivot around a nothingness that from their calculations had to have a mass of several million stars. They called this phenomena a “super-massive black hole” and they theorized that every galaxy had one at its center. The tornado-bathed-in-light that I had seen during the death meditation had been at the center of a spiral-armed galaxy.

Nature of Light

One of the things I found interesting in this research was the nature of light. The speed of light, which is 186,000 miles per second, is thought to be the fastest speed possible in the universe. Yet, light has both a particle-like nature and a wave-like nature. Unlike sound waves which bounce from one air molecule to another as they make their way from one person’s mouth to another person’s ear, light waves traveling from the sun to the earth do not have anything to move through. There is nothing but empty space between the sun and earth. It was as if light really didn’t exist, but we know that is not true when we look up at the sky on a bright sunny day. In fact, without the light from the sun, life on earth is impossible.

When light is measured as a particle, it’s called a photon. Various experiments involving particle physics were aimed at smashing particles into one another at high speed and measuring the results. In some experiments, electrons collide and are annihilated, and the collision results in the release of a photon of light. In other super high-speed collision experiments, particles are seen to disappear, and anti-particles appear out of nowhere.

I had several meditation experiences involving light, and in those experiences I found that light does not travel as waves or particles from point A to point B. Instead, expanding basketball universes travel with light as part of the pattern of reality.

Doc’s Last Bombing Mission

It was January 18, 1943 and their mission was to bomb the harbor of Kiska Island. Earlier in the day, a weather reconnaissance plane had spotted two Japanese ships in the harbor. The bombing mission consisted of six B-24 bombers, four B-26 bombers, and six P-38 Lightning fighters.

Alaska’s Aleutian Islands had become a hot spot in World War II, when the Japanese invaded two islands at the far end of the island chain; Kiska and Attu. While not known at the time, the invasion was a diversionary attack by the Japanese to take attention off their main attack planned for Midway Island.

Four months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, the Americans had launched a daring raid to bomb Tokyo using a dozen or more two-engine B-25 bombers flown from an aircraft carrier. This famous bombing mission was known as the “Doolittle Raid,” named after the commander of the raid, Lt. Colonel Jimmy Doolittle. When the Japanese encountered the normally land-based B-25 bombers flying over their capital city just four months after Pearl Harbor, they were convinced that the Americans had launched them from bases on either Midway Island or the Aleutians. Therefore, to protect their homeland, they decided to invade both to create a buffer zone.

For the Americans, even though Alaska was officially still a territory and not a state, the invasion of Kiska and Attu in the Aleutians was considered an invasion of North America and the American homeland. Thus, a vigorous defense was devised that involved stationing the 11th Air Force in the Aleutians and training an amphibious invasion force to retake the islands.

What is the Temperature in Heaven

Does anyone know what the temperature is like in heaven?
If you were preparing for a trip there, what would you bring?
As you sort through your wardrobe of memories,
What would you pack?

Obviously heaven is cooler than hell,
But is it a cold weather climate or warm?
And how much baggage are you allowed to bring?
When taking a trip to infinity, it’s important to pack smart.

Sorting through the dusty part of your wardrobe of memories,
You pack your baby clothes along with that odd looking shirt you wore to first grade.
You grab everything you can from growing up through your teenage years…
That monstrosity you wore on your first date…
The unmentionable item you were wearing under your graduation gown.

Your wardrobe of memories is organized like a timeline…
The earliest stuff on the left
The most recent on the right.
You grab great handfuls of memories and pack them away.

When the wardrobe is empty,
You look out at the vast collection of luggage this life has created,
Wondering if you properly tagged each one with your name and address.
Lost bags on this trip are rarely returned.

The road to heaven leads down to a wide river.
You arrive with a cart overflowing with luggage,
Only to discover an old man waiting to take you across
In the smallest rowboat you’ve ever seen.

He looks at your cart full of memories and shakes his head in disbelief.
“There’s no room for all that,” he scolds.
So, you hurriedly sort through your bags and reduce your essentials,
Down to two large rolling suitcases.

But, when you try to step out onto the dock,
The old man shakes his head once again.
“There’s no room for […]
