31.  Résumé and outlook

I can imagine that this book represents an argumentation rather difficult to understand for those readers who so far have heard little or even nothing of the phenomena herein described.

The positive in this however is that everyone can convince herself/himself either by experimenting on her/his own, or by participating in such experiments when made on the occasion of meetings/symposia, or congresses, or in working groups, whose addresses can be made out.

When, recently, I had a conversation with a gentleman who knew hardly anything about transcommunication, he spontaneously said: “If this is all true, if this really exists, then the world would have to prick up its ears, it would have to regard this phenomenon as the most important discovery in the history of humanity. What is the construction of an A-bomb or the flight to the moon against the possibility of contacting an other dimension ?”

The man was right. With the knowledge about these contact bridges the world would have to change. The research on transcommunication as it presents to us today involves that we have to rethink anew our traditional conceptions and opinions regarding the life on our earth as well as in the Beyond. The refreshing of it is, that this can reveal the absurdity of many of the previous teachings having always caused us uneasiness, and that we can look forward with much more hope and confidence to what will expect us in our life after death.

In any case, transcommunication underpins the thesis preached by almost all religions, id est, that life after death is no fata morgana, no wishful thinking, but reality. The sole fact that - due to transcommunication - this vague belief has turned into true knowledge, actually constitutes transcommunication’s right to exist. Through transcommunication man is to a large degree freed from his hithertoo existing doubts, he understands (inter-)connections and aim, and he acquires certain knowledge about the “Beyond” already in the course of his earthly life. The dialogues with other dimensions lift off the veil from many things up to now incomprehensible to us. We no longer need to hang on to a week straw of hope, but can seize a promising anchor of certainty.

Since the research on transcommunication has advanced into most differentiated special fields, the knowledge about the continuation of life after the bodily death is transmitted to us in such an illuminatiing manner that the disputed survival of death is no longer a matter of belief, but of multifarious knowledge.

Besides the “global fact” survival, we, by transcommunication, receive answers to many questions to which, in the past, we could not give plausible explanations.

The advance into other dimensions, made thanks to the progress in research, allows contacts with spiritual entities able to give teachings of directive tenets, and information about the life after death.

Because of a great lot of identical messages we can assume that the excarnated man, after the death of his body, lives – depending on his degree of evolution - either a short or a longer period in a dimension hardly different from the conditions of earthly life. Since the human first carries his individuality along into this other world, he occupies after his death with the problems or activities he has been concerned in during his life on earth. The deceased stays in this sphere “near to earth” till he has overcome the imperfect, untrue, non-spiritual he has brought with him from his earthly existence, till he has achieved clarity and awareness/knowledge so that nothing prevents him from ascending to a higher, perfecter dimension. The unmastered ballast having accompanied the human into the other world needs to be worked up first, and in the Beyond he has to recover what in the earthly life he has missed in accomplishing his spiritual tasks.

However, every human has to win by himself his inner conviction abouth the “last things”, and each individual will and must find his own, individual viewpoint on the path in conformity with him. The hurdles and barriers which a man striving for comprehension has to overcome are different. Many a thing will be realized by him via detours, or after having led himself astray, and many a thing accrue to him only by harmful experience. 

From this variousness results the great problem of being able to transmit insights convincingly. To have insights and to transmit same are two different pairs of shoes. Though for most people absurdities appear quite as matters of course, if only they are furnished together with a scientific sprinkling of knowledge, and they even believe completely nonsensical things just because they have been drummed into them, or because they are advocated by a branch of science.

For example, is it not a paradoxial theory to maintain that life had – by mere fortuitousness -  proceeded from dead matter ? Not anywhere on our earth or in our life we find an instance for life having proceeded from something dead. Not death, but life stands at the beginning. Life well includes death, but not an end of life. And similarly, is it not basically wrong to accept that man be totally dead when his brain does not work any more ? This false reasoning could only come about because science affirms consciousness were a product of the human brain. And after the producer’s failure, nothing could be produced.

People declining transcommunication mostly plead their realistic attitude. But where is their realistic thinking as regards the mentioned absurdities ?

A striking counterstatement has been written by Thorwald Dethlefsen (in his book Was bedeutet der Tod für Sie ? Prominente antworten. (What means death for you ? Notabilities answer), Ariston Verlag, Geneva.  His example furnishes an explanation for this misunderstanding:

Music resounds from a radio. One could deduce from this that the radio produces the music. This hypothesis can be underpinned by the fact that the music disappears when the radio is destroyed. Nevertheless, we all know that, despite of this, the hypothesis is not correct, for the radio is not the producer of the music, but only a transformer transforming the actually existing radio program, which originates from a different source, onto a level perceptible by us. When destroying the radio, the program indeed disappears from our field of perception, but it is not abolished by this; it continues to exist on its level and, with the use of an other appropriate receiver, it can at any time come back to our field of perception.  In this example we only need to replace the “radio” by “brain and nervous system” and the “program” by “consciousness” to easily and quickly get to the bottom of the mistake. That consciousness simply disappears – in the sense of “no more existing” - when a human has died, belongs with certainty to the most thoughtless statements made in the history of humanity. Even physics are teaching us for some considerable time already that energies cannot disappear, but can only undergo a constitutional change. What authorizes us to assume that something dissolves into nothing simply because it disappears from our evidentness ?

When we look at a dead we state that only one thing differentiates him from a living person, namely the missing consciousness. Now as before exists the body, is to say the material part of man. If we would only accept the material level, there would be no possibility of defining death, for the body is the same before death as it is after death. The objection that now integral functions of the body, such as the functioning of the heart, of respiration and circulation are missing, is not sound since functions are already the expression of something showing in the body. But that what expresses as a function in the body is not part of the body – otherwise a dead body would still have this function. Since primeval times all humans are agreed on that, at the time of death, “something goes away” – what has had issue in many formulations: “He has given up his ghost”, “life has gone from him” (the fragile quality has gone from his chin), “he has breathed out his soul”.

So, at the moment of death something disappears what quite obviously is not of material nature, for otherwise one could evidence its missing on the bodily level. But that something actually disappears is certain, since otherwise there would be no difference between a living person and a corpse.

Complementary to this I would mention that every man looking at a dead undeniably has the feeling: this is no longer the person I have known, this is no longer an ensouled man, but just his hull, dead matter no more telling anything about the man he was.

Another reflection, also written by Thorwald Dethlefsen:

The sun is setting – but in the moment it sets for us, it rises for the observers in a different place – each sunset thus is simultaneously a sunrise. Sunrise, sunset – both are mere ideas and mental outlooks of men. In reality the sun follows its course and knows nothing of sunrise or sunset.

Human intellect comprehends not more than a fraction of the entire immesurable spectrum of life, death, cosmos and infinity. We pretend to decide about what can and what cannot be, or what may or must not be.

Still now I have in mind the words of a scepticist to whom I had demonstrated, almost seventeen years ago, the tape-recorded voice of my deceased daughter. Since her birth, he had known the girl very well. “Yes”, he said, “this is her voice, there is no doubt about it – but – there are no such things !” For his comprehensiveness it simply had not to be true that a “dead” can speak on a recording tape.

Man believes a lot of things he cannot see, not hear and not touch. Why is he not ready to accept a voice that manifests clearly and pronounces clear statements about the Beyond ? Good Christians believe that in the Sacrament of the Holy Communion blood of Jesus Christ transforms into wine, and that they partake of his flesh in the form of a small consecrated wafer or piece of bread. Does this not demand more willing belief than the acceptance of an audible voice ? When asking people whether they believe in a life after death, many of them will affirm it with every confidence. But for most of them it is absolutely unbelievable that “inhabitants” of the Beyond are able to communicate via electronic equipment.

At this point I would also like to quote Rainer Holbe (RTL Luxemburg). He said:

“I have broken myself of playing the advocatus diaboli who always strives for rational explanations only, who with the hybris of modern man seeks to destroy what is going to build up, with so great hardship, off our trodden paths of conceptions.”

“Why must exist only such things we can touch and see ? We cannot see the waves of radio and TV broadcasts either. And despite of this they surround us. Not before we have a device for receiving them they become reality for us.”

Equally plausible is the example with the dog whistle. When sending an acoustic signal with it, the dog hears it, but man not. This however does not imply the non-existence of this tone. It is simply our hearing that is not adjusted to this wave length. The same applies to the life after life.

Everybody having ever been confronted with the voices from other spheres will one day arrive at the point where he will have to become aware of his aims and his responsibility in relation to all living beings. For the one deciding in favour of  the authenticity of what he has experienced, a new, important part of his life begins. He is confronted with an immaterial world’s challenge to open for the life and knowledge of other spheres of reality. Uprightness and a critical attitude towards oneself and towards others are part of the demands, and when one day they will have become one’s second nature, the way to one’s self is made free, and man lives a transformation without diminuation of his intellect and his feelings.

To me the most important seems to be the discerning of the significance of life: why we are on this earth, to make use of our possibilities, and to realize that our whole life is a consequence of all the choices we have made. It is our responsibility. And we are not only responsible for our actions, but also for our words, and even for our thoughts. When going into the other dimension the value of our life is the total of our free choices, whether they were actions, words, or thoughts. The present time with its multifarious results in transcommunication, and the indications connected with it, make it easier for us to acquire understanding for the span of our being on earth, and for our existence after death. This knowledge resembles an armour. Those buckling it on feel protected and in safety.
