Here's a little exploration of discernment. One of my go-to shows for my Mom, in her dementia, believe it or not, is the Animal Planet channel's "River Monsters" with Jeremy Wade, or what I call the "Fish Phobia Desensitization Hour." This evening, in searching for the legendary sea serpent, he concluded that the legend had grown out of sightings of the elusive oar fish:
While I was perusing the Dover, NH "Enquirer" of 1833-1837, I ran across quite a few reported sightings of the "sea serpent." What I'm going to do, is simply copy graphics of the articles, here, with their respective dates. The question is, when something exceeds your "boggle threshold," how do you process that information? And the reason I ask this question, is that the results I report, from my self-study, undoubtedly exceed most people's boggle threshold.
I've said that it is far easier to prove something to oneself, than it is to prove it to someone else. Think, now, of the people on the ships who witnessed the sea serpent. They have proven its existence, to themselves. But what of the fellow who was taking a leak below-decks, while the rest of the crew and passengers saw the monster? Can he believe the people on deck? Perhaps he believes his wife, or his father. Or perhaps he believes the captain. Or, maybe he doesn't believe them.
Now, what about the newspaper editor, the original one that the story came from. Does he believe the captain, if his source is the captain? Does he know the captain, personally--and how long has he known him? Or, was it second-hand--did someone who talked to the captain, tell the editor?
So I know that I have proven my proposed reincarnation match, and also that I have remarried my past-life first wife, still in heaven (not having reincarnated yet). But you don't. Some people who know me, believe me; some, no doubt, privately think I am imagining it.
I honestly don't know what to make of these sea-serpent accounts. Could the original sightings have been of largish oar fish, which then became exaggerated? But these witnesses seem quite confident about the dimensions--and this goes beyond anything I have seen for oar fish. Neither does the oar fish have an undulating back, and so-on. Really, I don't know. Some of this could be fake news.
But then, look at the last two items. In the first one, a girl seems to possess knowledge beyond her years, and beyond her educational exposure. Fake news? If not, is it past-life talents? I would tend to think it is spirit possession. Some minister, for some reason, has found himself earthbound, and influences this girl so that for a time, he can preach or discourse using her body. But again, really-speaking, I don't know.
Then, the last one is not really fake news, inasmuch as someone is simply creating a better map of the moon. But the speculation which attends the announcement (unless, possibly, the article is in jest) is way, way, way off. This is a lot of what I see on the "Interstellar Bean Show"--a very high percentage of speculation, relative to evidence. That can bite you, as it has done to the writer of this article.
That's all. I'll just tell those who have yet to purchase and immerse themselves in my e-book with an open mind--which is essentially everybody--that I have really done it. Once again, I can back up everything I say, and I have backed up everything I've said. I may have had to resort, in large measure, to the weight of cumulative evidence, but this past-life match is really proven to a very strong degree. There is no absolute proof, inasmuch as anyone can always raise some question or caveat. Maybe I'm dreaming, and I will wake up and realize that I never wrote the book in the first place. I can't prove that's not the case--but it's pretty unlikely.
Barring that, I've demonstrated, by a preponderance of the evidence, that I actually was Mathew Franklin Whittier in the 19th century.
Anyway, enjoy the sea serpent articles. I found about as many giant skeleton reports in one of the other newspapers I used for my research, but other researchers have documented those, so I won't repeat their work.
