Is the purpose behind paranormal phenomena to shatter our sense of self? Gradually chipping away at our manufactured identity until we are left exposed to the collective consciousness surrounding us? 

And is there an invisible ecology of consciousness we are able to tap into once our individual barriers are demolished? I sure as hell don’t know, but my ignorance and blindness never stopped me from rambling in a quasi-intellectual manner! 

Today I express my personal thoughts on individuality, monism, the role of ego death in spiritual enlightenment, and even loss of identity as a process of establishing communication with the overarching source of our consciousness.

For a more well-researched discussion on these topics grab a copy of Joshua Cutchin’s new book Ecology of Souls: A New Mythology of Death & the Paranormal

For another take on this topic, also check out Aliens: The First and Final Disclosure , a new book by Jeremy Vaeni
