    Paperback í El Aleph PDF/EPUB Ì aleph book, El Aleph PDFTHE IMMORTALWe have all experienced different dimensions in our life to name just three waking deep sleep and dreaming Yet when it comes to describing or imagining the afterlife I’ve read very few accounts postulating how awareness could shift between various levels rather life or lack of life after death tends to be portrayed as an uninterrupted hum all at one frequency the three major frequencies 1 awareness within a specific form like a light body 2 formless awareness that is our consciousness merging with undifferentiated oneness an ocean of universal conscious 3 complete obliteration without a trace of conscious awareness Why is this? Why can’t we think in terms of an alternating between various frequencies or modes of awareness perhaps even with an occasional shift into oblivion? And these questions are compounded if we also think of
