Leading-edge research in holistic medicine, biophysics, bioenergetics, and biocentrism all point in the same direction — showing we are more than just our bodies are more than physical molecules and chemicals.
Explaining why and how we are more, H. P. Blavatsky asserts in The Secret Doctrine (2:149) that “The whole issue of the quarrel between the profane and the esoteric sciences,”
“… depends upon the belief in, and demonstration of, the existence of an astral body within the physical, the former independent of the latter.”
