    It looks like we all sense when someone stares at us from behind us, and half of the people have thoughts of "important" meetings with people before they happen to them.

    Some others feel the visitation by people (and animals!) who are dead but they don't know they are dead until later.

    So, it looks like
    1) either our physical bodies are developed out of us to focus on 5 senses at the expence of others,
    2) or that our bodies incorporate us and physical life is a result of this interaction,
    3) or that we are a derivative of our physical bodies and we gradually drift out of them including more than 5 senses,
    4) or ... .

    But then, there are far more people who don't sense anything apart from the 5 senses and adomently deny anything outside the body.

    What's your take? Are there other possibilities than the above 3? And the other puzzle is why there are so many adoment deniers. Are they afraid of something?

    Try the butterfly scenario.

    Caterpillar = human existence
    Cocoon = death state

    Butterfly = life after death

    We have a body because with a body ...living here on earth we can suffer more acutely,feel more ... in a mental and physical way.

    Not so if we are spiritual beings with subtler bodies.

    What do I know anyway.

    As a practical matter to get around in this earth. However, as far as I am concerned a body that eats well, is taken care of and is able to express the thoughts of it's owner through music, art, cooking etc is a body that is blessed many times over...:D

    We are... Jocko Homo:

    They tell us that
    We lost our tails
    Evolving up
    From little snails
    I say it's all
    Just wind in sails
    Are we not men?
    We are DEVO!

    Brains don't get around well without something to carry them around.
