It would soon become clear that the world in which the soul lives after the death in the material world is not a remote existence somewhere far above in the space. We know for instance, that X-rays penetrate through solid objects, whereas for a living person even a wall restricts movement. Heat and cold too pass through physical barriers to a certain extent. That is to say, the movements of extra-sensory finer elements cannot be stopped by physical objects. On the other hand, though material barriers obstruct our activities, we hardly ever feel the presence of the finer elements of the beautiful nature around us until we greet death like an old friend and depart from this life.So how huge is this astral world ?
