This brief and simplified discernment is to emphasize on the important of the subtle body-mind:
As stated in many past discernments, the physical body (many sentient composite body mind system) is mean for living and experience in the known physical world. And mean or process (and mechanism) to create, shape, nurture, develop, transform, and purify the subtle body-mind or emerging spirit-soul potentialities of possibilities. Furthermore, as mean or process (and mechanism) for the subtle body-mind or emerging spirit-soul to transition beyond after physical life or immaterial world (as had simplified and briefly discerned here https://www.epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org/philosophy-and-science/on-the-philosophy-and-science-of-the-nature-of-nature-form-formless). Form-formless are needed for:
1.0 Live and existence.
2.0 Transformation and evolution potentialities of possibilities.
3.0 1.0-2.0 across all realms and worlds.
There are 2 distinct consciousness, consciousness of the whole. And consciousness of the parts and sum of parts such as individual and species. The consciousness of the individuals are parts of sum of parts of the greater whole consciousness. Being parts of the whole is not the same as the whole. Even through the whole process and mechanism facilitate the parts transformation and evolution, the part or individual is not the whole. And therefore, individual form-formless is essential for self transformation, evolution, and purification. And of course, are facilitating by the greater whole.
Past lives experience can be explained through quantum (and beyond sciences) such as sciences of intertwinement and entanglement with the local and non-local cosmos. In other words, since lives and existence are interdependent and interconnected, such experience are possible since despite nature is of infinite potentialities of possibilities as well as dynamic and transformative far beyond present sentient imagination; nature, sum of nature parts, and the parts are not perfect. For example, cross-talk and cross information coupling as well as interference can easily occur in circuits boards, among circuits boards, and systems, (and even in living things such as effects of EMF-EMR and diverse body-mind telepathy technology) if they are not well designed or shielded, grounded, and de-coupled.
Many philosophy, traditions, and practices do not recognize or acknowledge the subtle body-mind for many reasons such as:
1.0 Improper perception and experience of life and existence. And nature of reality and truth.
2.0 Lack of scientific development and practices.
3.0 Belief based practices.
4.0 Make mind believe practices such as consciousness is from brain and or mind only.
5.0 Simple or explained away epistemology and ontology.
6.0 Lack of resources, means, knowledge, and science to properly record, interpret, and or translate ancients wisdom. And as well as effects of hidden and forbidden knowledge and practices over the millenniums.
7.0 Conform to certain belief such as incarnation and re-incarnation: incarnation and re-incarnation phenomena basically implied consciousness is a stream or formless. And therefore, there is no form as well as the individual consciousness is the same as the whole consciousness. However, these belief contradicted principle or nature of epistemology and ontology. In other words, how could information about the system and its parts exist without the system and parts. And vice versa. For example, in the origin when the process of self -realization and self-actualization was in progress, there was no living things nor sentient nor spirit until material and immaterial are created. And sentient were created and evolved to have subtle body-mind that can evolve to transition as immaterial body-mind or spirit sentient to the immaterial realms and worlds. There was no process and mechanism for incarnation and re-incarnation. In addition, nature process of intertwinement and entanglement is far more useful, dynamic, transformative, and effective than the need for incarnation and re-incarnation.
Furthermore, incarnation and re-incarnation is already subtly integrated or embedded in a more meaningful and purposeful dynamic and transformative process as in the intertwinement and entanglement process of parts of sum of prats of the greater whole. In other words, spectra-field (i.e. implying such as energy, frequency, vibration, information, resonance, and among others) of individual and collective as well as species are intertwined and entangled as parts of sum of parts of the greater whole as well as empirical data or observed and experienced natural process and mechanisms (since the many sentient composite body-mind system is essential for rise of consciousness and awareness or subtle body-mind). In addition, for life and existence to exist beyond the known physical world, form is required since stream of consciousness is neither form nor life nor existence. Furthermore, even through the parts are interdependent and interconnected with the whole does not mean the parts are the same as the whole. However, the foremost reason is that incarnation and re-incarnation violate principle or the nature of process of being and becoming. And essence, nature and ground of being, And nature as previously mentioned
8.0 Social, Economical, Cultural, Civil, Political, and Traditional factors and conditions.
9.0 Combinations and or all of the above.
Beside incarnation and re-incarnation, many other phenomena can also be explained through the scientific method such as: physical body remained warm for days or weeks or exhibited other supernatural phenomena can be explained through many natural processes (and mechanisms) such as diverse bio-transmutations and or LENR fusion or cold fusion (in particularly, when the individuals were long term and skillful practitioners of body-mind energy and control). And even spectra-field bio-chemical interaction can cause spontaneous combustion such as wildfires and, even through less often, combustion of sentient, including human. Furthermore, once the subtle body-mind disentangled from the physical body, it is death. There is no longer the individual consciousness or subtle body-mind remained in the physical body. In other words, the mind belongs to the subtle body.
Not integrating the subtle body-mind as parts of the human living and experience as well as integrated nurturing, development, and transformation would be great causes of disempowerment, irresponsibility, malpractice, injustice, and sufferings in the known physical world. And far beyond. While promoting and practicing improper essence, nature, and ground of being. And nature would make things even far worse.
And as such, for inclusiveness, pluralism, common and greater good, betterment and long lasting benefits to all, and the pursuit of well being in the known physical world and beyond, the solutions would be to skillfully and expediently through collective resources, wisdom, and efforts to explore and discover the essence, nature, and ground of being. And nature through meaningful heartful and mindful care integrated science and naturalness-spiritual scientific method and process as had encouraged and urged in past discernments. All the while advance quality, meaningful, common and greater good, and well being life. And while also prevent and eliminate harm, injustice, and suffering in the known physical. And far beyond.
