Brief Angel Encounter
Thought I'd share this experience with an "Angel" or being....
Fall of 2003 was going through a existential crises event involving a lot of agitation, anxiety and fear.
The day of Oct. 29 2003 was an exceptionally emotional one. I guess the full implications of "anything is possible" were very real and overwhelming to the ego self that day, By following that truth out one realizes that the world could dissolve and disappear to be replaced by something else at any time. Anyway it was extremely frightening and I could almost think I was going insane.
Fortunately my wife was there to talk me down. She was like the Buddha giving me step by step instructions on what to do to stay grounded and not go over the brink. I also cried out for God and or the angels to help me through this and actually said something to the effect of if you really exist why are so f------ hard to contact.
That night I went to bed probably around 11:00 PM. Sometime later I woke up to a most unusual energy. I was lying on my left side and it seemed that my being was vibrating almost like a bowl of jello. Like my boundaries were shifting several inches in all directions. It was a warm, low frequency vibration. Pleasant.
Now this could not have been my "physical body" since that type of motion would have shook the bed and awakened my wife but it was definitely happening. I opened my eyes and was just lying there very still, feeling this, wondering what was going on, when I suddenly felt two hands on my right shoulder push me down with a quick pulse like motion harder into the mattress. It was like someone was leaning straight-armed against me and putting his/her weight on me with a quick motion. I felt my left elbow pushing harder into the matress.
Along with the touch of those 2 hands a powerful pulse of of the same energy I had awakened to went through me.
It was over like that.
When I turned I saw nothing. I immediately woke my wife and told her what happened.
I'd never had an experience like this before. It was definitely real, though with more thought, if was my spiritual or physical body responding is hard to tell. It seems that an angel or being whatever you wish to call it responded to my somewhat anguished cry after all.
Let me say I appreciate John Geigers book on the third man but there are two annoying things. He gives what i call the neuro-otics too much credit. There are no engineering details on how oxygen changes and chemistry could create another being outisde yourself.
This once again shows that the neuro-otics really have nothing. Where are the engineering details of how a change in brain cell oxygen and chemicals could create the real experience of the thurd man? There aren't any. There are no theories or empirical measurements that could can be made to verify that the third man event is occurring. We only know because someone reports the subjective experience. If no one in history ever reported a third man science would never even suspect they occur. This goes for all the phenomenon of the psyche including consciousness, memories, hallucinations, visions, dreams, the NDE etc. There are no engineering details on how to get from oxygen levels, chemicals, and electrical impulses in the brain to any of these. Isn't it funny how anoxia and the dying brain is supposed to cause NDEs and yet consciousness still exists during these times to experience the NDE? Dying brain means end of consciousness and yet consciousness still exists and the dying brain is also producing something it normally doesn't - an NDE. Could a neuro-otic really tell me what's happening in my dream without asking me? No. The neuro-otic Brain Worshipers have nothing, never did have anything, and never will because you can never get from what they consider to be "objective" to "subjective". It's about time we stopped giving them the benefit of the doubt and told them to either produce the theory, the math, the engineering details, and the evidence for what they say or shut up.
The other annoying thing is how the book keeps saying the body is a survival machine. This is obviously false since eventually all bodies cease functioning at some point. The body is actually designed to stop functioning at some point not to survive. The fact that a certain possibly fatal scenario has been avoided is just a delay. Consciousness or spirit cannot be explained by physical science. Spirit uses the "physical" body as a vehicle for experience for a time and then moves on. The third man is exactly what it's experienced to be a spiritual event in which another spirtual being helps a spiritual being in a body to get past a certain situation. Let's stop the gibberish about brain cells and oxygen levels creating experiences in ways for which there is no explanation.
