What is the Resurrection?

I don't think there is any evidence in nature that bodily resurrection can happen. I think this is a misunderstanding of the resurrection.

Non-Self Reveals the True Self

When the false self dies—the ego, the old creature, the constructed personality, the illusory self, the separate independent idea of one's self, the man of sin, the son of perdition, the natural man, the carnal mind—when this is seen for what it really is, when it is revealed in truth, when it is put off, taken out of the way, when it is crucified and passes away, then the true Self is revealed in glory.

Oceanic Light "First Vision" Account

Meditation begins as most do. I feel as if I am a small stone sinking into an ocean of filtered light. The light seems to be coming from all directions. I slow, almost pause, at certain levels before my specific gravity increases again, and I sink deeper into this ocean of consciousness—no real experience of having entered this ocean—just being there and going deeper and deeper. It is beyond peaceful, beyond serene.

Video Presentation: “The Mystical Core of Mormonism: A Very Brief Introduction”

This is recorded video of my oral presentation on 8 April 2017 at the Mormon Transhumanist Association Conference in Provo, Utah. It is an abridged version of my written paper, which can be read online at ThyMindOMan.com here. The written paper is about three times longer in content, with 72 endnote references and links. So this oral presentation is a very brief introduction, indeed. But watching it does have a different quality to it that some may prefer over the written text.

The Mystical Core of Mormonism: A Very Brief Introduction

The experience and concept known as mysticism and its practitioners, mystics, are largely unknown today in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. What are these, and what relationship might they have with the Gospel and the Restoration, particularly with Joseph Smith and his First Vision? The case is made that they are vital to our communion with God, and our ultimate goal of returning to God. Many perspectives and concepts are discussed including personal experience, neuroscience, psychology, transhumanism, computer science, philosophy, popular culture, history of religions, psychology of religion, and contemplative practices, offering tentative associations and insights with Mormon concepts of spiritual experience, atonement, salvation, exaltation, the Second Comforter, calling and election, and theosis or divinization, becoming like God.
