Matter and Inventing in the Spirit World.

I am here, Thomas Alva Edison.

I know you are curious about inventing and technology in the afterlife. You have thought that they are not present over here because the elements of Nature are not here as they are on Earth.

But you are wrong, for the material of the mortal universe doesn’t disappear over here - it simply changes form. That is, we still have matter to work with, though the laws affecting this matter are different, and the matter is of a different nature.

The major change is that if a spirit is in a fairly bright and good place, that spirit can manipulate matter with his or her mind and will. This has actually happened, though in a more limited way, on Earth. But over here, it is common and prevalent. In fact, opportunities for inventing are greater on this side of life than on Earth. That is why for someone like me, the spirit world is a Paradise.

On Earth, I had to create a generator to power the light bulbs I invented. Over here, this is not necessary, since the chemical makeup of matter doesn’t exist in the spirit world in the same way it exists on Earth.

The universe God created, on both sides of the Divide, is infinitely complex, and just as on Earth, the more we spirits learn about the Creation, the more surprised we become, for each discovery simply opens another door into the unknown.

You don’t have to be a genius in inventing to appreciate this. All you need is an attitude of reverence and awe for this amazing Creation that God made.


Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931) was an American inventor of Dutch origin and businessman who developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph and a long lasting light bulb. Dubbed “The Wizard of Menlo Park” by a newspaper reporter, he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production to the process of invention, and therefore is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.

Edison is considered one of the most prolific inventors in history, holding 1,093 U.S. patents in his name, as well as many patents in the United Kingdom, France and Germany. (Source: Wikipedia)
