The illusion of separateness from the rest of Creation and our Creator arises not only from a strong Earthly pre-occupation with our individual Self and its physical needs, but is further emphasized by the historic existence of a "Frequency Fence" or "Veil" surrounding our "quarantined" Planet. This has totally isolated us from directly contacting and experiencing the higher Spiritual Planes. This Veil has been built up over tens of thousands of years and can be readily seen by those with psychic sight as a dark cloud of negativity surrounding Earth. The Veil is a legacy of all the darkness which has built up, partly through the latent natural self-centeredness in most unevolved souls, but more significantly, through having been brought in by an outside insidious source of evil which has infected some of the outer Universes of Orvonton. However, up to the present ending of the current major Universal Age, the ruling Trinity Hierarchy of Paradise has not up to now ever attempted to remove this surrounding Veil. They appear to see Earth's unique "quarantined" environment as providing many with a unique learning experience on the extremes of negative-positive Duality. It also has the useful function of preventing us with an easy escape to the Higher Realms and thus from learning the lessons we especially came here to experience. For those "Descendant Beings" who have come down from the Central Universes of Havona and Paradise as volunteers, they have themselves made a prior "Life Contract" which has accepted the curtailing restrictions. They also have come down here to learn a powerful lesson from Earth's strong culture of perpetual conflict. From this they often learn useful lessons in their attempts at reform, and the experience can provide them a great strengthening of their Soul against negativity, something they might find useful to deploy in a possible future Grand Creation out in the Great Void.
The "Veil" has thus made it virtually impossible to be aware of, or remember our past lives on the Higher Worlds. Our present dense and low vibration-rate prevents us from seeing the higher Dimensions composed of less dense matter and more widely spaced-out atoms. Fourth Dimensional Beings are therefore totally invisible to us unless they lower their vibration rate down to our own level. Only those who have over many lifetimes developed their powers of "extra-sensory-perception" are normally able to see higher vibrational level Beings or possibly communicate with them.
Occult Science explains that all "Matter" is made up of various groupings and combinations of atoms with their orbiting electrons and protons, all of which oscillate about each other in a positive-negative vibratory movement whilst maintaining a fixed magnetic spacing from each other. All atoms, and the resultant matter that they constitute through their cohesive groupings, vibrate at different frequency rates dependent on their complexity and density; a low frequency promoting a denser grouping, and higher frequencies creating less dense, more spaced-out and refined matter. Within the three main vibrational frequency/density ranges of the Spiritual, Etheric and Physical Planes, Occult Science also identifies seven subdivisions, or intermediate levels:
"The occultist finds that physical matter exists in seven sub-grades or orders of density: Solid; Liquid; Gaseous; Etheric; Super Etheric; Sub Atomic; Atomic. Particles of all these grades enter into the composition of the body, the physical vehicle. The physical body24 however, has two well-marked divisions; the Dense Body, composed of solids, liquids and gases, and the Etheric Body25, or Etheric Double as it is frequently called, consisting of the four finer grades of physical matter. Every solid, liquid and gaseous particle of the physical body is surrounded with an etheric envelope: hence the Etheric Double, as its name implies, is a perfect duplicate of the dense form. In size it projects about one quarter of an inch beyond the skin." Between the Physical and the higher Etheric vibration densities there is an important intermediate level: the Astral Realm26, composed of slightly lower-vibration Etheric matter. The Astral Plane is also known as the seat of our Emotional Body27, and is usually the first level on which we arrive after the transition we call "Death". As the seat of our emotions, senses and memory, and of our Subconscious mind, it is also the level where we are constantly recording all our thoughts and experiences into the great Celestial Memory-Bank known as the "Akashic Records28". Here is the storage point for all our memory-data available for later retrieval by our physical brain. In fact, this is the sole source of all "Memory"; we do not actually store memories within our physical brain matter, but use it only as a communication link to the Akashic Records stored within the Ethers. With the onset of old age, those who have started to lose their interest and attachment to an Earthly life, a part of their brain loses its capacity through lack of use, to "record" incoming events. However, another part of the brain may still be able to "retrieve" longer term memories, through having maintained a greater use of it, those past events which still have an interest for them.
All of the original "patterns" for our Physical body are replicated on the Etheric Plane in the "Etheric Body29" as an exact counterpart. This is why, for instance, when a person loses a limb, they often feel it as still being there as a "ghost" limb. Since most illnesses originate in mental or emotional disorder, they first of all manifest in the Etheric Emotional Body30 before being transmitted down to the Physical Body. Many New Age healing therapies, such as "Radionics" and other forms of Spiritual Healing, apply healing on the Etheric level. As this can be instantly transmitted through the non-physical Ethers, healing can be done on the Physical Plane31 from any distance or place without physical contact between Healer and Patient. Transmitting a corrective vibrational frequency, such as through Radionics, to the Physical Body can restore the lowered disease frequency to its former vibrational rate, thus replicating the pattern set within the counterpart Etheric Body.
At our dense physical Third-dimensional vibration rate level, our physical perception range, apart from the sense of touch, is limited to a range between the frequencies of sound (16 to 20,000 cycles per second) and the higher visible light-frequency spectrum. Visually, this ranges upwards from red, orange, yellow, green, blue, to the ultra-violet level. We are therefore unable to see any higher-frequency vibrational "matter" outside of this range. This is why we fail to see any living life on our neighbouring Fourth and Fifth Dimensional Planets, or the presence of their visiting space craft, except in those cases where they have chosen to lower their vibration level for our benefit. What we are seeing of their Planets is the basic physical 3rd Dimensional core, even though it is in fact surrounded by higher vibrational planes of Etheric matter and inhabitants.
"The Spirit World has as many distinct planes of existence as an onion has skins, each forming an outer protecting skin to the previous one and providing a means of contacting the experiences which that particular plane has to offer. These planes are co-existent with our physical world, invisible to our slow reacting sense of sight, yet as real as the invisible waves which carry our radio programs.
"As a Spirit descends, plane by plane, into the depths of experience, a body, complete with the organs of sense suitable for manifestation in that particular sphere, has to be donned in order that those senses may respond to the vibration of things comprising that sphere. Without such a garment it would not be found possible either to express oneself or to receive impressions in local surroundings, and the experiences in that particular plane would be fruitless."
"The often-puzzling idea of invisible worlds and Beings being totally invisible and yet interpenetrating us, can be more readily understood if we bear in mind that all "solid" matter is in fact composed of atoms with spaces around them. It is of course, well known that even in the hardest substance no two atoms ever touch one another, the space between two adjacent atoms being in fact enormously larger than the two atoms themselves. Orthodox physical science long ago has posited an Ether which interpenetrates all known substances, the densest solid as well as the most rarefied gas; and just as this Ether moves with perfect freedom between the particles of densest matter, so does Etheric matter interpenetrate it in turn, and moves with perfect freedom among its particles. Thus a Being in the Etheric world might be occupying the same space as a Being living in the Physical world; yet each would be entirely unconscious of the other, and would in no way impede the free movement of the other."
