Life On The Astral [Nov. 27th, 2015|10:06 am]
Tony Grist
According to the once famous spiritualist book I've been reading (A Subaltern in Spiritland by J.S.M Ward) things that have been destroyed on earth find a new home- intact- on the astral planes.

So it's the Great War and a number of recently deceased allied soldiers are living in the astral replica of a Franco-Flemish town that has been flattened by shelling. If they want furniture for their houses they go a curio shop where the stock is continually replenishing itself. "O look," says the shop keeper," There's a grandfather clock that wasn't there before." On Christmas Day they attend a service in Ypres cathedral.

Sometimes they'll catch a house reassembling itself.  If the earthly counterpart is being slowly taken apart by shellfire the astral version will materialise in stages. First the roof and upper storeys appear- suspended in mid air- and then the lower portions attach themselves in chunks.

A lot of afterlife narratives came out during and around the time of the Great War. I've just started Raymond Or Life And Death- supposedly the post-mortem communications of the son of the distinguished scientist Sir Oliver Lodge.
