Religion classes pertaining to particular cultures can be both enlightening and challenging. They seek to emphasis how the unseen world is something we will never know the truth about, yet, they do teach us to think or ponder about what lies in the unseen world. This is what this anthropology exercise is all about. So while I was posited the question and have answered it to fit the ideas that I have, I’ll ask now that you reflect and then comment below with what you think.
What do I believe the unseen world is populated with?
I believe the unseen world is populated by others. It’s hard to assume or assign a person or inanimate object to a place or otherworld. To assign such titles or for me to believe such beings exist would mean that I have faith in something. That something is not something I can title, or rather, I’ll just use the term “otherworld” like the Celts used.
How is the unseen world accessed?
I think this unseen world can only be accessed when you reach transcendence, death, rites of passages, or ritualistic acts of certain kinds. I don’t believe that humans, let’s use a psychic for example, can access this world using crystal balls or tarot cards. I don’t think this “type” of person has the ability to access or the right to access this world.
What is brought back from the unseen world when it is accessed?
This all depends on who is able to access the world. In most cases I think information is brought back in the form of a carrier. This may be a spirit or a message you receive in a dream. Objects in the unseen world are viewable in the un-seeable world to the unseen, but once those objects, whatever they may be, cross over, they can’t be seen. So to put it more simply, totems of significance may cross lines, but cannot be seen.
