Over the years I have had incidences of tools and other articles disappearing into thin air. The first time that I was actually conscious of this was when I was repairing a switch and there was a sudden brilliant flash and my screwdriver was gone from my hand ! I should add that the electrical power was turned off at the main fusebox at the time.
Another incidence was years later. I was dismantling an old cattle crush using a cold chisel, a lump hammer and a two spanners. I was called to the house for coffee, so before leaving I put all of the tools in my right hand and dropped them to the ground, my assumption being that they would remain roughly all together.
I had my drink at the backdoor with my three friends who were commenting on my progress. We were stood about 30 feet from where I had been working. When I returned the tools were not to be found. A thorough search by four of us revealed nothing, the tools were not found then and never ever found later.
My conclusion is that there are other planes of existence that overlap the earth plane consciousness [i.e. where we are] . Most commonly known is that of the Faerie, who to my mind are on the edge of our consciousness standing between us and Nature. Others may consider an Angelic plane but I have no experience of them.
I am though certain that there is far more to life than the mundane and that discovery of such or broadening of the conscious mind can be experienced by the regular practise of meditation. In that we start utilising the other areas of the brain and its frequencies. Beta being our normal state and changing to Alpha during meditation, may possibly awaken our perception & awareness when having returned to beta.
