Salad Days

Far beyond the simple iceberg lettuce and bottled dressing of our youths, mercifully past the canned pear half resting on a limp lettuce leaf, we have become a salad-crazed nation. Most restaurants, including fast food shops, feature meal-sized salads with savory ingredients, from avocado to fried chicken strips, drenched in honey mustard or chipotle ranch dressing, driving up those calorie counts. Salad bars took the country by storm in the 1970s, and eager diners loaded up their plates with dozens of offerings. Anyway you slice it, we devour them with gusto and without guilt. After all, it’s salad.

Extraterrestrial Life – Is Swedenborg Credible?

Emanuel Swedenborg said some spirits he met in the spiritual world had been born on other planets. These experiences took place in, what today, we would call an altered state of consciousness. He wrote that the extraterrestrial spirits are human people a bit like us. We read that these spirits had come from the Moon and other planets in the solar system. He repeatedly refers to the physical facts of these planets, and infers that these spirits are from them. Yet since his time, science has discovered there is no life on the Moon and Mars. It finds no hard surface on Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune. And so in disbelieving any reality behind this aspect of his inner experience, people may also wonder about the credibility of a spiritual world that he describes. Yet there may be meaning to these experiences which can offer ideas about spirituality.
