This current website for Eternea should be considered temporary and only a crude representation of what will be offered eventually when adequate funding is obtained to pay for customized animation, programming, databases and software, as well as advanced graphics and video archives.
A dedicated webmaster/developer/designer will also be in place, in addition to full-time staff who will provide necessary support to various chat rooms, blogs, forums, podcasts, social media posts, message boards, emails and much more. These will encompass over 100 discrete phenomena categorized under the general rubrics of spiritually transformative experiences (STEs) and non-local consciousness experiences (NLCEs).
The ideal website is intended to be a complete comprehensive showcase of all credible empirical evidence to reinforce the validity of Eternea’s Seven Statements, complete with primary source audio and video files from exemplar cases representing each type of STE/NLCE covering the full range of over 100 different phenomena. It will be accompanied by documentary evidence as well for each exemplar case, including applicable medical records, EEG and EKG reports, MRI/CT scans, etc. There will be a separate portal for each type of STE/NLCE, reflecting the current state of the art and all that is reliably known for each specific type of STE/NLCE.
Our ideal website is intended to be experiential and interactive. It is meant to be the virtual cyberspace representation/demonstration of eternity, that is to say, the eternal now and the infinite here.
Our ideal website will be highly engaging, enthralling and impactful. It must be highly credible and completely comprehensible to multiple and diverse audiences. Moreover, we want visitors to experience a sense of occasion when they come to our ideal website, an experience like none other, akin to entering a gateway in cyberspace to eternity, infinity and the ultimate nature of human consciousness.
We envision our ideal website to be a progressive work of art, sort of an ongoing sculpture, fashioned by its creators and its visitors who will be encouraged to make contributions to it each time they come, whether it is to report a spiritual transformative experience, or a story about historical accounts they find in the literature, or sharing grief experiences, and so much more.
Here are just a few examples of some of the concepts we want to put in place for our ideal website:
1. An animated film based on the Eternea Tree graphic (see attached) to explain The Eternea Strategy in visual terms.
2. An animated film depicting a virtual near-death experience (one type of STE).
3. An interactive/experiential component that provides a virtual life-review & preview process as it would take place on the other side upon the death of one’s body which requires the development of proprietary software called “E-LITE-10,” Electronic Lifetime Inventory Transformative Exercise – 10 Right Actions.
4. A greatly improved STE Electronic Registry (STEER) where people around the world can enter their STE or NLCE translated uniformly and automatically from input language to English, with the option of auto translation into any other language a viewer/visitor may desire. These data are for public viewing free of charge, and for access by scientists free of charge, around the world.
The STE Electronic Registry (STEER) at Eternea.org is a place wherepeople can archive and publicly share first-hand accounts of their STE(s) or NLCE(s). Experiencers can upload scans of images or records, as well as audio and video files, in addition to their personal first-hand narrative account of their experience or experiences.
At STEER, people simply enter their own personal written narrative account of their STE/NLCE or their multiple STEs/NLCEs by answering a series of questions. They can upload video or audio files and other supporting documentation such as medical records or scans. They can also explain in detail how their STE/NLCE transformed them and changed their lives.
STEER thus provides a virtual treasure chest of information for scientists and researchers from all over the world to study. It also enables the interested public to read these accounts first-hand. As the STEER global archive and data repository grows larger over time, it will enable scientists to answer many important questions about STEs and NLCEs.
For example scientists will be able to estimate more accurately the true prevalence and geographic distribution of STEs, as well as the impact of cultural and religious diversity. It will also give scientists a better grasp of how STEs affect and transform the people who undergo them.
The primary job of our ideal website is to represent the current state of the art for each one of over 100 distinct phenomena, including the top exemplar cases on video with scans of medical records and other forms of corroborating evidence; profiles of the top researchers for each of the phenomena; introductions to top support organizations for each of the phenomena; summary of alternative explanations within the materialist world view for each of the phenomena providing data which shows why they are inadequate, making the survival hypothesis the default explanation; chat rooms, message boards and forums for each of the phenomena; and so much more.
The overarching job of our website is to present the strongest scientific/empirical argument possible to demonstrate the reality of survival of consciousness after death, and to present the implications of that finding for human nature, religion, government and other social institutions, all to advance civilization using the progressive science of consciousness as the catalyst.
All of our expressed positions and perspectives are evidence-based and data driven, decidedly not the product of faith, belief, opinion, theology or dogma.
Our aim is to spark a global spiritual renaissance leading to the realization of an optimal future for earth and all its inhabitants. In the process, we hope to be the impetus for the optimization of science embracing the role of consciousness as cause with matter at effect.
We also aspire to optimize religion, all religion. This would involve inspiring all religions to return to their original roots, where most converge around a few central core premises as expressed in Eternea's Seven Statements. We also hope to inspire them to undergo a shift in their central focus/goal centered on teaching their constituents how to practice oneness and unconditional love in daily life, serving as a support system for them in the process. This, in our view, is the highest and best purpose for all religions and the best use of their time, energy and vast resources/global infrastructure.
Our website is also intended to be a resource for the bereaved, the terminally ill, those contemplating suicide, spiritual seekers generally, scientists and all religious authorities looking for a better understanding of their subject matter from the vantage point of science. Thus, our market is global and diverse, encompassing a broad spectrum of needs. Ideally, our aim is to reach and inspire every human being, and we need a website that will facilitate this ambition.
Our website is our brand, our storefront, our primary tool. It should be the virtual representation in cyberspace of the larger spiritual reality that encompasses all of physical reality. It should be a powerful resource for people all over the world, and science as well, to accept the validity of The Seven Statements based on empirical analysis, not faith.
Eternea intends to offer free access through its website (eternea.org) to comprehensive resources and information about Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STEs) and Non-Local Consciousness Experiences (NLCEs), providing a snapshot of the current body of knowledge and state of the art findings concerning all phenomena related to these areas of interest.
Eternea.org aspires to function as a ‘one-stop shop’ for people seeking to learn more about all NLCEs and STEs. It is in essence a digital repository for all manner of first-person accounts of these experiences and a digital encyclopedia or library for up-to-date information concerning each individual type or category of STEs and NLCEs.
Each phenomenon would ideally have its own portal featuring the following information:
1. Video/audio files of the most exceptional cases;
2. Summary of all research, past-present-future and profiles of all leading researchers, as well as their books and scholarly articles;
3. Comprehensive annotated bibliography concerning the subject matter at hand;
4. Thorough list of all support groups and resource organizations;
5. Analysis of all alternative explanations within the materialist model;
6. Events Calendar giving current information about lectures, workshops and other activities; and
7. Chat rooms, forums, blogs and message boards to bring together those who report these experiences.
The ideal website will also provide current information about the activities of Eternea’s Seven Program Components, which are as follows: 1) Research; 2) Education; 3) Outreach; 4) The Convergence Coalition; 5) SynerGe Initiatives for Institutional Transformation; 6) Personal Growth & Individual Transformational Programs including the C.R.E.A.T.O.R. project; and 7) Induction Technology Development & Incubation.
