LOCAL AND NON-LOCAL
Core aspects of epistemology and ontology such as subtle body-mind, evolution beyond known physical world, transcendence and naturalness-spiritual phenomena and experience, realms and world beyond known physical world, and the interdependent and interconnectedness of life and existence can be validated through common senses and reason based on the human experience. And existing scientific knowledge and empirical data. For those with meaningful transcendence and naturalness-spiritual or epistemology and ontology experience, the available scientific knowledge and empirical data would only strengthen their realization or conviction rather than the need to be convinced since it would be far easier to relate to and to better understand. However, for those with no or limited experience, existing scientific knowledge and empirical data (both through available applied main and non-main stream sciences and the human experience) can be applied creatively and skillfully to validate or convincingly illustrate the essence, nature, and ground of being, And nature.
Even certain aspects are through induction, deduction, reduction, interment, and as sum of parts; others can also be with empirical data. Therefore, there are many diverse ways of validating core aspects of the essence, nature, and ground of being. And nature. And as critical or essential, would help develop new and better ways to better the human conditions, transformations, and potentials. All the while help strengthen and accelerate epistemology and ontology quest on the global scale. And as such, great causes, reasons, and opportunities as well as for inspiration, aspiration, creativity, imagination, and emancipation. And as had inspired, encouraged, and urged in diverse ways in past discernments.
More comprehensive and detailed validation would take many more generations (and therefore, far higher risks of not achieving due to the many de-evolution and existential risks), in particularly when the technology lags the science (equipment and tools are required to gather evidence and empirical data), it is essential to use available scientific knowledge (the bare minimum sciences or scientific pre-requisites existed) and empirical data to advance the mass or public consciousness and awareness. In particularly when they can be used to effectively raise understanding. And therefore, elevate consciousness and awareness.
As a brief and simplified example: https://www.youtube.com/c/IANDSvideos/featured (and among any others)
Despite being parts of the human conditions and nature of being, OBE and NDE were not better recorded and known until a few decades. There was not a clear nor meaningful recorded of OBE and NDE throughout ancient (rather than modern) history of humanity, in particularly Western culture since by simple facts that scholars and scientists are still debating whether recorded ancient experience were resulted of transcendence, OBE, NDE or other altered states of consciousness (i.e. beyond comprehension, words, imagination, human capacity). And which indicated that common scientific language would be solution or common and inclusive. Recent OBE and NDE (and diverse transcendence experience) phenome exploration were initiatives of spiritual and non-mainstream scientific communities or OBE and NDE sciences are mainly non-main stream Western scientific practices. And came about due to the main reasons:
1.0 Science have advanced further in the West. And therefore, scientific mind and practices are more predominant than other parts of the world for which many regions and countries are still being developed.
2.0 Medical practices and health care, in particularly resuscitation science and technology along with complementary resources are more available as well as further advanced. And therefore, more lives were saved which implied higher NDE rate or occurrence.
3.0 More curiosity and interests due to many factors such available time, comfort, resources, means, and scientific resources and practices.
4.0 Searching for spiritual path and best practices.
5.0 Growing inspirations, aspirations, and yearnings for the essence, nature, and ground of being. And nature or to "Know Thyself".
and among others such as advancement in human rights.
In the past, NDE has been thought as returned of the dead or re-surjection (since the phenomena nor science were not known and understood. Again, expressions of "far beyond comprehension, words, imagination, human experience, and human capacity"). However, the science and empirical data more and more clearly indicated that NDE is basically what the term means, near dead rather than dead since with dead or once the subtle body-mind is disentangled from the many sentient composite body-mind system, it can never be re-entangled for life with the many sentient composite body-mind system. , NDE was not rarely and properly in the past. And in particularly in ancient days (beside due to factors such as forbidden and hidden knowledge and practices, lack of resources and means, epistemology and ontology knowledge).
Another brief and simplified example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3n6zlKGDXI
Exceptional skills demonstrated by the practitioner Alain Forget are parts of ancient forbidden and hidden knowledge and practices, status quo, lineage protection and competition, and among other reasons (and to certain extent, are still the practices in many traditions, lineages, or communities) such as it is not possible for mass practices due to lack of means, resources, and development. And as well as without the scientific process and method, the vast majority would not be able to achieve such skills nor ever understand such phenomena due to variants in such as knowledge, experience, biologic-genetic, pre-disposed talents, efforts, and essence and nature of being. And even can have counter productive effects or experience as shown in empirical data of meditator practitioners in modern days. Even expert experiencers and practitioners would never understand without the scientific knowledge-empirical data (which is the norm since even in science there are many things that are used or applied without or full understanding. And which are across the scientific spectrum). And beside certain practices such as naturalness-spiritual and science are process of transformation rather than simply event(s) or interval(s) (another reason for mutual quest and collaboration), a main reason was due to the many aspects of forbidden and hidden knowledge and practices millenniums upon millenniums.
And therefore, in the past, such skills usefulness have very negligible impact on their communities while non-existence on the global scale since they were not explored nor developed scientifically (beside due to many aspects or variants of forbidden and hidden knowledge practices). Even the Dalai Lama have spoken out about these and rainbow body practices effectiveness as parts of social engagement and activism. And the Dalai Lama himself do not practice them since they are on the extreme conditions, requirements, and efforts as well as due to variants mentioned (i.e. extremely few can achieve or meaningfully achieve even through entire life time). And as well as there are many ways of constructive or useful social engagement and activism. However, such skills as parts of scientific engagement and activism can now be of great impacts to the global community as a whole.
and among other naturalness-spiritual and scientific explorations (and related empirical data) on process of being and becoming such as diverse transcendence, extraordinary senses, and naturalness-spiritual experience.
And as such, by bringing forth the knowledge, experience, skills to the open and public through well presented scientific approach and empirical data; they can greatly raise global consciousness and awareness, inspirations, aspirations, emancipations, solidarity and unity of oneness, and collaborations. And as empirical data, insights, causes, and reasons to inspire and encourage scientific inspirations, aspirations, actions, collaborations, and quests forward since "far beyond comprehension, words, imagination, human experience, and human capacity" or far out of this world complexity and norm would require meaningful diversity, pluralism, and number or shared and collective open heart-mind inspirations, aspirations, living experience, collaborations, and efforts. And essential and meaningful scientific method and approach.
And which can or are causes, reasons, and opportunities to create long lasting benefits and betterment for individual and collective, potentially relatable, useful, applicable, and practicable to and for all in the known physical world. And beyond.
