Crazy Button On:

   Alrighty, my fellow Cauldronites, breathe easy I have returned… (My ego fully intact…),

But what exactly is the astral plane? Can it even be described?

Is the astral plane the only other plane of existence other than the physical one? Or are there more?  

The way I see it, everything living thing in the universe has an energetic body, which is a requirement for life as I have come to know it.

It can be seen in humans as the little electrical synapses in our brains, traveling through us and telling the rest of our body what to do. So when we die, where does all of that energy go? Only 10% is passed on as consumable energy to anything else, and it’s a basic rule of physics that energy can be neither created nor destroyed.

Scientists say it escapes as heat energy, that makes sense. But when they go looking for ghosts, what do they measure? Variations in tempatures (…Albeit that’s usually a change in tempature for the cooler, but I’m human, not the Universe Encyclopedia…) so let’s assume this energy escaping our body is still a conscious entity, i.e. us, and that the body itself is merely a tool for creation of physical goods. (…That’s a completely different topic…)

Since we are able to leave our body as this energetic entity when the physical body has reached it’s sell by date, it seems reasonable to assume that it may be possible to do this prior to death as well. Hence, ASTRAL TRAVEL…

The astral plane itself is harder to understand, I think of it as a room with a million doors. You start in the same place, but there are a million different places you can go all separate and individual from each other.

I've often come across references to subtle body, but what exactly is this? And can it really be seen as an aura?

I think this is the afore mentioned energetic body I’ve spoken of, and I think there are variations in color.

As a means to differentiate between energies, I believe there are variations in intensity. (… I would be a lightbulb, a God/Goddess might be the sun…) But when you look at light, which is what you’d be viewing the energy as, it occurs in various colors, due to intensity. (…I think… Any scientists in the forum?..) I believe this is what causes colors in the energetic body to be unique to a certain being.

I also believe the intensity of a deity's energy may be the reason they don't need a physical body, if they want it they can make it happen from where they are...

•Correct my if my physics are wrong, which I think they may be…

I LOVE You All,
Aionia

Except Melamphoros, if you were a little bit saner you'd know that it should all be from Column A... But, I accept you as you are, and will learn to love you with time... JK
