I believe science has backed itself into a corner because a) it is and always has been obsessed with a beginning and end rationale to everything when in fact simple logic says there is no such thing as a beginning or end to anything and b) it has never adequately factored in the impact of energy on energy.
Since energy exists and cannot emerge from a state devoid of anything it is by definition eternal and infinite. No energy, no anything. Thus everything that is, has emerged from this source of primal eternal energy and is energy in infinite forms.
Every energy form transmits frequencies and receives them and is thus reactive to every other energy form because input and output are constantly changing thus altering the mean average frequency of any given energy form constantly.
Since everything is eternal energy nothing is born and nothing dies but everything transforms all of the time from and to differing vibrational states.
If this reasoning is correct the birth and death of stars like any energy
form is an illusion created by energy in transformation. If one brings everything back to energy, everything appears to make sense including the "paranormal" but as soon as one interprets energy as an entity in its own right, nothing makes sense because it becomes disconnected in the mind from what it actually is, energy.
This interpretation of everything as energy could even explain the concept of a soul. When the biological body breaks down (dies) the energy that gave it function and which resonated at it's own unique combination of frequencies simply continues in a different form. If energy is indestructible this seems logical. This might well be the process that religions regard as the soul leaving the body.
Because religious bodies regard the soul as an entity unlinked to energy, they have never been able to understand how this happens but if one thinks of the soul as energy it makes a lot more sense.
This concept of energy as everything could explain climate change because the effects of solar/cosmic energy activity would naturally impact on our geology and that of all planets in the cosmos since all energy forms are connected to all other energy forms. This in fact appears to be what is happening as cosmologists have noted changes on other planets in our solar system.
Al Gore et al, like science in general has made the huge mistake of looking at Earth as an entity in isolation from the cosmos and not an energy form witin the cosmos. The incoming energy from the cosmos must have a far higher impact on Earth than our activities on Earth and this is why he is at best only partly right and why we are seeing more and more extreme geological events.
