Review of Arc Copy
Does the world of the spirit exist and is there an Afterlife? Until now, there has been an immense amount of anecdotal evidence that the spirit world exists and there has even been a growing number of scientists that controversially state that there is such an entity as a spiritual world which is based on their own personal research.
You can count on ninety-four year old Chuck Swartwout author of You Don't Die-You Just Change Channels to be one of these scientists.
When his wife Gretchen, who was the love of his life for fifty-four years died suddenly, Swartwout began to examine the reality of a life-hereafter which led him to conduct a considerable amount of research regarding “Afterlife” or the period after we physically die on this earth and continue to exist in the spirit world.
Swartwout informs his readers that he was educated as an electrical engineer and while heavily relying on his experience solving creative problems in his field of study, he also utilizes his later experience as a motion picture producer where he created many television commercials and films designed to inform and motivate people. As his guide in researching the subject, Swartwout refers to Buddha: “Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, not even if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and common sense.” And describing himself as a dreamer, Swartwout uses his “common sense” approach to make the case that the spirit world does truly exist.
By now some of you are thinking, here we go again with balderdash, but then again we have to be reminded that many of the great discoveries were ridiculed as being nonsense. Just because we can't see something, doesn't necessarily imply it doesn't exist or because something has not yet been scientifically proven, it doesn't mean that it is not real. Remember, what we see with our physical eyes comprises less than ten percent of the universe because our human vision operates only within a limited range of the electromagnetic spectrum. To illustrate, we are unable to see radio waves that carry huge amounts of information which we all agree know exist.
In other words, and here is the caveat, when reading this compact hundred page tome, you must keep an open mind. You may not agree with Swartwout's logic, nonetheless you have to admit that it does provide us with food for thought. And what if somehow it was shown that the world of the spirit exists, can you imagine the huge implications it would have on the way we see the universe? Incidentally, Swartwout is open to hearing from his readers and in the Appendix 2 of the book he mentions that he is anxious to receive feedback as he is a great believer in the collective wisdom of all of his readers. You can refer to his website and follow his directions as to how to provide him with your input.
his conversational style, Swartwout moves quickly and covers an
expanse of ground providing insightful thoughts with the objective of
affording his readers the possibility of viewing the world of the
spirit through a different lens. Among the themes he examines are the
different approaches to learning about the Afterlife, the mystery of
life through the ages, coincidence or Divine Intervention, mediums,
near-death experiences, after-death communications, far out concepts
and a host of others. In exploring these various topics Swartwout
compels readers to reconsider their preconceived notions which may
prove in the end to be quite a challenge.
