Bodies! Why Are They Important? 071815
Before writing this article, I thought of several questions suitable for my
Question of the Day page. In looking there for references on “body,” I found
over 100. I've included several, but not all, below the video. I hope you find
them thought provoking.
Earth, 21st Century
In this culture, upon examination, it is very easy to see the importance placed
on the human body.
All visible functions, in this society, are accomplished by human beings.
Before I take up the points I wish to cover, let us take a look at the definition
Google defines "Human": a human being, especially a person as
distinguished from an animal or (science fiction) an alien.
That is accurate as far as it goes. I would like to comment that aliens
probably working for Google wrote the definition!
Aliens would not be human unless they were of the same species, homo
sapiens. Then regardless of where they came from, they'd still be human.
Let me add to Google's definition: A human is a spiritual being using a homo
Why Spiritual Beings Use Bodies.
There are many reasons and I will take up only a few below.
These reasons are: Control, Communication, Sensation, Aesthetics and
Havingness. I'll start with “havingness” as you will need a definition of that.
Havingness is what a being works for. Havingness is the prize for winning
the game. Havingness is the mass of a new vehicle or a well functioning
The reason many things are done is to produce something to have. You can
build it or purchase it or accomplish it. A trophy or rank gives one a sense of
Most humans, who are convinced they are their body, lose all their
havingness when the body dies. The loss of possession it self is a shocker!
Upon death, they lose their family, vehicle, friends, bank account, clothing,
So to a Being, a body provides havingness and a means to play games and
have other things.
People generally need a body to communicate with.
Telepathy is an ability that is generally denied and invalidated. Anyone with
any skill at all generally hides it to avoid the negative attention.
Everyone has telepathic skills to some degree.
However, bodies are needed at this time to provide reliable accurate
I chuckle about that. Have you ever played the “Telephone” or “Chinese
Whispers?” It would seem verbal communication isn't that reliable or
Part of communication is attention. Something that has no attention is not in
communication with anything. A beautiful woman or hansom man gets
attention and is thus easily in communication with others. Babies attract
attention and communicate well though most adults do not pay enough
attention to fully understand the child.
Attention is necessary in order to create an effect. If you don't have
someone's attention, you will create no effect and not communicate.
Hence, having an aesthetic body enhances the giving and receiving of
Tip: When your communication is important, put it in writing!
There have been reports of levitation and poltergeist.
Teleportation, at this point, must be considered fiction. Some day, maybe,
someone will accomplish it. It will not be done my a machine in my opinion.
Few people can mentally move objects. It's a very powerful Ghost that can
actually move anything. One reason ghost are ghost is they are too weak,
dazed, confused to even find a new body. It is extremely rare that a ghost
The Spirit, you, normally can not control any object without using your body.
Since we wish to do things, drive cars, get dressed, cook food, IE control the
physical universe, currently, we need a body to do those things.
This is not to say you can't be powerful enough to do any action without a
body, it just hasn't been observed lately.
Ah! The one of the things a body seems to really be good doing, feeling
things. Of course, sensations can be pleasant or unpleasant.
It could be the main reason a Being keeps a body around is for sex.
The truth is a Being can produce any sensation in vast quantities better than
any body can.
Pain is a sensation. Sensations are neither good nor bad except as the
Being considers it.
Most human Beings consider pain an undesirable sensation as it is a
warning signal for the body. Remember the Being is not the body.
Many bodies are beautiful. I would almost say a body is as useful as it is
Once a body gets old, it does not receive the attention it used to get. As I
mentioned above attention is necessary for communication.
Older people sometimes seem to lose their beauty. With this loss of beauty
comes the loss of attention and the lessening of communication and the
lessening of life.
A person is as alive as he can communicate. Take the dead, for example,
they have very poor or no communication!
Having an aesthetic body creates pleasant effects. Few sane people want to
create negative effects and seek not to employ ugliness.
The point here is that a Being does better with an aesthetic body. It provides
the Being with a better quality havingness (of course that's my opinion:-).
As almost all Beings have gotten themselves into a state of such weakness,
they must have bodies to play the games of life.
As a Being, your potential is incredibly great and you could actually learn to
operate without a body.
You can have the entire physical universe and control matter, energy, space
and time. You can communicate and create great beauty.
You can create sensations. You could try this now, put any emotion into the
environment, the walls etc until you can feel them coming back to you. Keep
No one wants you to know you are a spiritual being trapped inside a homo
sapiens style body. No one wants you to know you can be free.
I wish you well.
