    I'm exploring this concept of dual control centers performing the same function.

    Perhaps spirits can't use language?

    I don't think a spirit can be damaged , it is really us; who we are, our lives recorded and stored. When we die God takes that recording and stores it. But when the brain is damaged the consciousness is affected , hurt but not destroyed. You can beat a human body beyond description, but as long as the person is still alive, the spirit is still there, the consciousness still present. And when they die, the spirit never dies, it goes to God, wherever he is.Such is my belief.

    In my thoughts , from all theories I have examined , I accept most that humans are really spiritual beings, just now having to live in a physical world. In physical temporary bodies. There is far more to life than we know; this stuff now is not our intended future; no. It can't be, its not enough. Oh one can accept its all to it, because that is as far as their consciousness can go. I have stretched a bit further.

    Where God is , its a mystery, as God is a mystery. Believing God is real or not , hurts no one. We can live and die , our view of God has not hurt humanity ; humans have hurt humans , and often have used religion as an excuse to ravage and hurt each other. This is something God has obviously allowed , he knew we would do this. And he knows what he is going to do about it. None of us are doomed to some hurtful future far ahead, the future belongs to God, and we all will live in it. I don't know what God is going to get out of human suffering , but he wanted it first, before we shift into his reality. Only then will we know how we will benefit from all this we only now understand. I often wonder just what is on his mind ; and I think the complete salvation of all humanity is one thing he wants.

    Some of what we humans know about "A God", comes from our imagination , history or word of mouth. We reference books and our cultures to rely on such unusual subjects. If I may use my own reasonings and say how I think on the matter, not knowing if a God is listening to me or not. I don't see how something that exist can come into existence without something else that exist, brings it into existence. But using that reasoning , just how is it that God exist? Just as much a mystery as where is God?

    Why can't all things just be simple?


    How spoiled would humanity be if all things were simple? If you think about it life seems like a puzzle. A mathematical puzzle, an emotional puzzle , a scientific puzzle. Some people actually get so sick of it , they give up on life itself. Just tired of the puzzle, what is right or wrong, who is right or wrong. It takes a certain strength just to keep going, often not even knowing where your going.

    One of the more depressing things about God and Christ is not " Knowing"; not knowing where they are , if they even exist, why they keep hidden; not knowing what they think about you , why they have done things like they have. God knows that we don't know; he knows. So none of this is our fault , which is why I believe in Universalism; or all humans being saved from this unknown dynamic. You don't place billions of humans into this barrel of living without God , then start judging them based on confusion. God would not do that. But many just don't know he would not do that. They base their beliefs on not knowing God. And that only adds to the confusion.
