Recent events have me pondering things of this nature as of late. At my uncles funeral, a song was sung about God "descending" from Heaven. I recall hearing many comments about descending into Hell. When we believed the world was flat placing such places 'above' and 'below' made sense, but, to our current science, such a placement seems an imposibility. If I go 'below', I hit magma, and eventually pop out the other side of the planet. Might be a short cut to decent sushi, but a place of eternal damnation is unlikely. Of the same vein is the idea that "Heaven" is above. Above me are clouds, then the moon, then deep space, and eventually yet another star system, and so on. Unless God descends in a UFO riding in from beyond the edges of the universe, such a placement is also unlikely. So if up and down are out, what about sideways? Watching numerous ghost hunter shows, many comments are made of spirits caught 'between worlds'. 'Portals to other worlds' are often cited when one discusses places of strange occurrence such as the Bermuda Triangle. So, what if places such as "Heaven" and "Hell" are not really up or down, but these 'alternate worlds' or other dimensions? What if what we call ghosts and demons are beings of energy, caught in the 'doorway' as it were? What if the idea of the laws of conservation of energy, and all of the mythos of 'spirits' are somehow connected?
