What if Earth is a Prison Planet Where Our Souls Are Trapped?

/, Unexplained Mysteries/What if Earth is a Prison Planet Where Our Souls Are Trapped?

As if remembering something important and eternal, the human soul asks itself: Who am I? Where do I come from? What is the meaning of my presence in this world? Where do I go after death?

These questions are not accidental, given that one of the theories about the origin of our species claims that the Earth is a place where souls go through a stage of reflection and correction. This is a prison planet where we all are incarcerated, that is why it is useless to aspire for universal peace and the perfect order of the world since living on this planet does not set such a goal.

We all each have our own purpose – to find our true selves, remember our divine origin, develop the bright side of our souls and return… to our homeland.

In Genesis there is an indication that we once lived in another divine place and our souls were not imprisoned in the corporal shell: “And the Lord God made Adam and his wife garments of skins and clothed them”, “…in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till you return to the earth from which you were taken.”

The wheel of endless rebirths

If we turn to Buddhism, it is possible to find a definition that human life is a chain of continuous suffering. To live in the Buddhist understanding means to suffer. Perhaps that is why, when a child is born, he cries, as if the soul were aware that it was born in the material world, on planet Earth. After some time, a child’s memory is locked and he forgets who he is and where he lived before birth. Buddhists believe that we do not die forever, and after some time, our souls are born in a new body, go through suffering, and then die and are re-born again.

If a person leads a righteous life, he improves his karma and in the future gets rid of suffering. If he commits evil deeds, then in the next life he condemns himself to more suffering. The basis of Buddhism is that the person is able to break the eternal wheel of rebirth and get spiritual liberation by reaching nirvana.

Up the evolutionary ladder

To return to the “Garden of Eden”, a person should climb the same staircase, from which he was once thrown down.

With experience, trial and error, sweat and blood, following the path of inner perfection, a person climbs up the evolutionary ladder, returning to the Creator. At each step he has to make effort, working on his personal lesson. Each new transition upwards must be deserved, and you can get stuck at some stage or crumble down. There is only one way: to rise from the low material matters to very high, divine ones. When this happens, the soul completes its earthly incarnation and goes into a qualitatively new form of existence.

One would assume that if really works this way, then there is nothing easier than to escape this prison and voluntarily leave this place. But such an action only aggravates our fate and prolongs our stay on this planet. That is why suicide in all religions is considered a great sin. The program of spiritual development allows a person to understand which is why he is here and learn his lesson.


The harder a person suffers the aggression and the imperfection of the world, the more pain he feels at the sight of hungry children and homeless animals, the lighter his soul becomes and the closer his way home is.

Our soul longs, looking at distant stars in the endless sky, remembering about its extraterrestrial origin. Someday we will return in the place, full of harmony and joy, where we once came from, where we can complete a real mission and where our existence will be filled with love and high sense.

    I am so touched by the comments! On amazon instant video I like to indulge in the short films it’s included in the prime membership subscription… I watched this one film titled “dinner for few” it’s an anomaly to the never ending cycle of life and creation . It’s a brain teaser and kinda have ones thougts out there. It’s animated illustrated. Life is a never ending cycle and we are maybe unfortunately part of its infinitesimal cosmos creation. The good part about being part of the universe is that we are infinite too and we get to experience LIFE. Too bad earth wasn’t so pleasurable for some or most. When the time comes for earth to release the world’s sorrows, which will be a great explosion of who knows what, where will we go, where will we hide? Look in the sky these days, feel how the weather changes like 3 times in the course of a day. The weather patterns consist of 3 different temperatures that’s insane. The earth is experiencing some type of solar power storm and can’t stabilize naturally until somthing explosive happens. And it’s coming. People see it, hear and feel it in the air. No one is alone, we’re all in this together! People are coming into consciousness because the earth is going through a poler shift. I’ve read the Alien interview website, it’s a hard pill to swallow. All we want is truth, peace, love, and the pursuit of happiness in this planet. How many more lifetimes we gotta go through to accomplish a simplistic life? We Are tired of suffering, war, hatred, greed, envy, stealing, killing, indifference, lies, programming, manipulation, religion and slavery! We are sick and dieing of these painful atrocities. I say, if we are sick and dieing from these things we gotta do things much different than we’re used to. Stop watching television! It’s an illusion it’s part of the programming mind filtering tool. Stop being a big time consumer on useless technology like the next ps1, xbox, iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, fashion LeBron James, kyrie Irving, jordands, brand names etc… STOP IT! It makes their pockets fatter and zombify us more, these things are a distraction from the real problems. Stop going to the movies, stop being a sports fan supporter, they don’t support us when we’re late on the rent, or a bill stop it! It’s ok to have SOME nice things but limit your indulgence. Discipline! Stop voting it’s a game we never get to choose who runs the country! Stop paying taxes it’s robbery! Stop celebrating holidays it’s another form of robbery. Stop banking it’s a slave monetary debt system. Stop stop stop it! If course you’re not going to stop because you’re attached it’s part of the Grand scheme of things and experiencing life. Stop paying rent, mortgage, bills, insurances, car payments lol there’s so much. But of course you’re not going to stop because you’re attached to the material life and it’s saving you from being out in the streets with nature! Haha! Stop send the kids to indoctrination so called education facilities (schools), I like to call em’ asylums. They teach our children the ongoing cycle of slavery in the work place. This life is filled with perversion and contradiction. Oh what a challenge! Stop working for the US corporation of America! It’s a never ending debt cycle from winning the war of DEPENDENCE rather than the war or independence. And of course no one will react because the fluridation in our American water supply keeps the masses sedated and under control. Mother Earth is a ticking time bomb it’s only a matter of time when this baby of great sorrow explodes! Nothing is separated everything is connected… We are supreme beings and the oneness we have been seeking for so long, we gotta learn to put aside our differences because in the end we are all we have! ❤️

    But above all it is hell for the children.
    When you come to this infernal place the only thing you want is love. What a contradiction. It could be the opposite and then it would match.
    But most of the babies are killed before they are born and their parts sold for something very dark, the abortion business, many are killed before birth with war violence and other types of violence. And even the lucky ones get dozens of injections with harmful substances just a few days after birth. Many are stolen with lies by the social services, at least here in the hellish UK. Many are separated from their mothers when they are very young and need still breastmilk because their mothers have to work outside and babies have to stay with childminders or preschool teachers for hours while they miss their parents. Many of them are abused in those places. Many are even mistreated by their own parents. Justice is a joke.
    After 2015 with the discovery of the NASA hoax and the flat Earth, after the obvious brutal trans agenda and all the satanism propaganda and in 2016 the pizzagate case (abuse and cannibalism world network of children) it is more than clear that the ones on the top are descendants of the devil and they look like humans but they’re not. And we are in danger. If this is hell it’s not forever because the destruction and extermination is clearly coming.
    God for sure existed and I’m not sure if still but the devil is for sure alive enslaving his/her own kind and the humans.

      No need for such pessimism. The golden age is here. All one need do is kick back, mediatate and pray. It is wonderful.

      As to the darkies, they are self destructing. It is good that such things are being brought to light. Worry adds fuel to the fire in the worst possible way,

        If this is the golden age, then leave me out of it.

    Earth should only have 500 million because souls are trapped there are over 7 billion Every birth commands a soul from the heavens and death should release the soul to go home with it’s knowledge learned but souls are trapped to reincarnation to stay here, then my wife said There is no such thing as reincarnation when you die if you’re a christian like me you go to heaven that’s where your soul goes if you’re not then yes your soul is lost in eternal hell
    To which I replied I.e. eternal earth, never to be free again

    humans imprisoned us here as the prison planet theory involves the mixing of genes its not possible for different species question is what are we going to do about it wait for our jailers to be merciful and kind and let us out or do we break out of our prison for some payback

    Yeah this theory is hugely flawed because there exists other life forms on this planet that aren’t human, trees for example, cows for example. Whenever I come across any theory where it talks about general life but somehow limits the theory only to humans, religion and creation stories for example, I immediately just think about the other living creatures that surround us and poof, that theory is destroyed.

      Do animals not have souls too? You cant say the theory is destroyed if your rebuttal is clearly flawed too.
