The final book in Philip K. Dick’s VALIS trilogy, The Transmigration of Timothy Archer brings the author’s search for the identity and nature of God to a close. The novel follows Bishop Timothy Archer as he travels to Israel, ostensibly to examine ancient scrolls bearing the words of Christ. But more importantly, this leads him to examine the decisions he made during his life and how they may have contributed to the suicides of his mistress and son. This introspective book is one of Dick’s most philosophical and literary, delving into the mysteries of religion and of faith itself. As one of Dick’s final works, it also provides unique insight into the mind of a genius, whose work was still in the process of maturing at the time of his death. 1. Language: English.

This book is dedicated to all living beings who expect to die sometime and to all of the dead people who ever lived who may still be living somewhere, sometime, somehow. This book is also dedicated to all of the people who are living that may need some ideas about what to do with themselves after they die. And to all the people who will soon be living by virtue of one or more of the following circumstances: birth, rebirth, resurrection, reincarnation, transconfiguration, cryogenic resuscitation, invasion of alien beings, angels falling out of grace, an act of one or more gods, transformation or transmigration, arrival from a different time/space/universe/plane of existence. If you have a faith, belief system, philosophical paradigm, or superstition to protect or defend regarding the subjects of life, death, afterlife, existence, spirits or god(s) that is your problem and I will leave you to it. Whoever you are, were, or will be, I trust that you will enjoy the "Rest of Eternity". 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kendra Hoffman.

A doctor’s religious doubt is shaken by a transplant patient’s eerie knowledge of his organ donor’s most intimate secret.Doctors tend to the needs of their patients, but patients give meaning to the lives of their doctors. So it is for Cullen Brodie, a twice-divorced California nephrologist, and Ennis Willoughby, a troubled cross-dresser whose life is saved by a rare heart-and-kidney transplant. Cullen’s bitter disbelief in the afterlife is tested when Ennis begins to exhibit tastes and characteristics uncannily similar to those of his female organ donor - whose first name Ennis inexplicably knows. When Ennis becomes convinced that the donor’s soul has inhabited him, Cullen sides with Ennis’s psychiatrist, who tells Ennis he has subconsciously confused his emerging transgender personality with the imagined characteristics of his female donor. While his psychiatrist coaxes forth Ennis’s female side, Cullen is summoned to the South Pacific by an old lover for a reckoning of their past. On the island paradise of Rarotonga, he is forced to confront the heartrending truth about a tragedy that destroyed their college romance - a tragedy Cullen blames on religious zealotry.Filled with resentment over what he has learned, Cullen returns to Southern California determined to shatter Ennis’s delusion of ensoulment. But Ennis’s eerie knowledge of his donor’s greatest secret forces Cullen to consider the unimaginable: Is it possible he is witness to a verifiable incident of transmigration, tangible proof of a human soul? Or is he witness instead to the miracle of being transgender? Male and female at once, the glory of one and the glory of the other, both shining - like a parrotfish, another miracle of nature, changing gender apace, beside its glorious, ever-changing hue. 1.

Wicca is one of the most popular neo-pagan religion, which emphasizes on the peaceful relationship between the humans and nature. It is a religion that professes equality between men and women and emphasizes on a healthy coexisting relationship between humans and nature. Apart from this, the Wiccan philosophy is also largely based on magic and spell-casting. The Wicca religion also emphasizes and encourages on the transmigration of souls. There are many different interpretations of the Wiccan religious texts, but the general viewpoint is that the reincarnation of a soul is one of the pillars of the Wiccan way. One of the most common Wiccan theory is that when a person dies, their soul will temporarily reside in what they call "the land eternal summer", where they will prepare and wait for their next incarnation. This is the main difference between Wicca and other traditional Abrahamic religions.Wiccans do not seek to fulfill their religious goals just to simply attain a sure place in a heavenly kingdom or paradise. One of the main ethical laws of the Wiccan philosophy professes the following: do whatever you want upon Earth as long as it does not harm others. This saves the religion from the problematic gap between the transcendent and the real worlds that other Abrahamic and Dharmic religions usually have. Based on all these interesting concepts and theories, Wicca is a religion that greatly fascinates scientists and professors who are given the enjoyable task of researching on the development of various kinds of religions.Wicca is a neo-pagan religion that is heavily associated with magic and the Book of Shadows. Among the many things that fascinates people into studying about this religion is its philosophy of promoting equality between men and women and a harmonious relationship between humans and god. The presence of magic only adds to the fascination, as magic is one of the many things in life that still holds unraveled myster 1. Language: English. Narrator: Clare Radix.

Death is a factual reality that every human being must encounter. However one fundamental question runs through the minds of men, "what happens after death?" when we die is that the end of our existence or is there a continuous existence in another form? There have been various stories about events that seem to suggest that even after death though the body decays, the soul of the person leaves on. This immortality of the soul is either explained as in the case of most Africans, through ancestor-hood or through a transmigration of the soul of the deceased into another person often times a new born child (reincarnation).There are even some tales in extreme cases of people still having some form of contact with the ghosts of these deceased or even cases where the deceased is said to live another different life somewhere far from his previous life existence and then suddenly disappears when the secret of his death in a previous life is exposed. These mystery of reincarnation will be exposed with focus on the Yoruba people of South West Nigeria.
