Expedition Unknown – Search for the Afterlife (Part 3); Edge of Existence Review

Continuing with Josh Gates series on the “Search for the Afterlife” this week was part 3 and the subject matter was Exorcism,  Russian eternal like experiments, and investigation of the Indonesian Tribe called The Torajan.  Then the episode after this one was “After the Search” which is a follow up to the previous episode and included a preview of next weeks episodes.

The episode open with a follow up from last week of the results of the exorcism and of course the “devil” inside the guy was successfully removed by the priest.  Lots of gyrations but in the end it was gone.  The only religion that we know about that does exorcism is the Catholic.  There may be others, but this is our opinion on the Catholic exorcism.  Because it’s a religious process then the only way a “devil” can get inside a follower is a product of the Catholic Religion.  The Vatican does not take these lightly, but it does authorize the event, so this says that the religion creates the problem so it takes responsibility for “fixing” it.

The next subject was how the Russians are experimenting with eternal like creation.  They have several bodies and brains in a frozen state (-320) in a vat so that when science can bring these back to life they can put the brains in robot or a different body and the frozen bodies can be returned to life.  They had Josh walk around with a device fitted to his head that recorded his every movement throughout the day.  It looked like he was wearing curlers connected together with wires and gadgets.  Their point was the data can be down loaded in the future into a robot that will use the data to make a “new Josh” in the future. Then there was a guys on the follow up show that had a name for this, but we did not care what it was because it sound like a huge scam to bilk people into a false sense of the future, which by the was is an illusion.  The guy had run for California Governor and President of the US.  He also had an implant in his hand that downloads his “serial number” and other information into a phone.  His point is he wants to bring this “future” technology to the attention of people.  When asked how this effects humanity?  He says its an enhancement to mankind and that we were meant to live forever.  Our response is “BS”.  It isn’t the body that matters, it’s the soul.  The minute a person dies the soul leaves the body because the body is only a vessel to carry the soul and assist the soul in it’s path through communication.  Freeze the body for future defrosting and you will have a bunch of soulless robots running around bouncing off walls.  No folks, this is not where we wish to end up because we know that there is an afterlife and we will come back at a later date.  Why people would do something like this might be because they are afraid of death?  Or they hid a bunch of money from the family and want to come back and get it?  Or the family said “look do this and die now (calming fear) and you can come back in 5050.  If the planet is still here then we will have a party.” “In the mean time where did you put your will?”  This is our project of course.

Then the next subject was an Indonesian tribe named “Torajan”(Sp) that believes the spirit stays in the body when someone dies so they mummify the body and bring the “body” into the house and treat them like they are still alive. They talk to then each day, they offer them food, and they change their cloths.  Then at a later date when the spirit leaves the throw a week long funeral with all kinds of events and they make a sculpture of the person, which will be placed at the actual burial site along with the body in a coffin that goes into a cave that has about a zillion  other bodies.  There seems to be some “loop-holes” in this like if the family could not afford the expensive funeral the body might remain with them forever, yes, forever.   We wonder how many families have moved to a new home and forgot to take the bodies with them accidentally on purpose?  Does the next person who bought the house inherit the bodies or do they send them to the cave without a funeral?

The next subject was only touched on and a full blown follow up with be in next weeks show.  Josh went to Peru and shamans prepared a liquid (Drug) for Josh to drink.   Josh had to fast for two weeks prior and no sex.  This reason is that if he did not do the proper procedures he might not come back from drinking the drug.  The drugs purpose is to take you to your afterlife.  Josh did say that after it was over his body purged itself from both ends for a few days. So this event will be on next weeks show in detail along with a ghost hunt on the Queen Mary that is docked in Long Beach.  Josh is great at his ghost investigation so we are looking forward to this.

Of course there was more and overall this week was good and we like how Josh is investigating all kinds of ways to get to the solution of looking for and afterlife.  We believe on the afterlife but it all boils down to what you believe.  If you believe the afterlife is swimming wit whales, then thats all yours.  You might believe that this is the only life we get and once we are six foot under, cremated, or mummified then that it. Done!  If you are hanging around in a vat waiting to be defrosted you need to know that your soul has moved on and might come back a few thousand years from now and be the one to hit your defrost button on the body sized micro-wave  to bring your body back.  Interesting concept huh?  We call this Karma.

We have nothing else to report except that we like this series because it makes up think about other ways people believe in life and death.

Thanks to all our followers, subscribers, friends, ghosts, and souls just stopping by for a quick read.

If your a ghost stopping by then we must tell you that God loves you and you will be welcomed in his/her realm.  Just go to the light off in the distance with many blessings and Peace be with you.  We might even see you when we get there and we can hang out.  Of course if you end up in heaven, then we can only come there for a visit and we need to get a heavenly passport to get through the pearly gates.  We know this because we have a bunch of friends in Heaven and we visit them often and joke around.
