Survival? Annihilation? Humans have wondered for millennia what happens to the conscious part of us when the physical body dies. Our materialistic "scientific" paradigm has failed us in this regard, and orthodox religious structures have lost much of their explanatory power in our technological age. Fortunately in the information age we have access to astonishing spiritual experiences from all around the world - near-death experiences that speak powerfully to the survival of consciousness. Some of them are so powerful they have to be avoided by minds not ready to grapple with them. Following on from looking at the out-of-body phenomenon, Episode 30 leads us deeper down the post-mortem rabbit hole and into some very reassuring - if eye-opening - territory. The afterlife may be much closer than we think.

Is there a "spiritual body" as well as a physical body, as Paul wrote in his letter to the Corinthians? People in the pre-Christian world seemed to think so - the doctrine is ancient. What about the modern world? Can you travel astrally and project a "spiritual body" away from your physical, and if you did, might someone else be able to see it? What does the modern evidence tell us about astral projection, aka out-of-body experiences? Seeking answers to this question has yielded some truly astonishing material, as you're about to find out. Get ready for a fascinating ride in what occultists call the astral plane, a virtual world simulacrum of our familiar earth environment, known not only to occultists but also government-paid spies called "remote viewers" (aka the Psi Spies). Applying the standards of logic and evidence to "religious matters" can be a most enlightening experience!
