In some peoples way of thinking, consciousness adheres to certain aspects of predominance. As in when a human dies the body regresses from this form on which the consciousness lies to another form. With death it retracts from each and settles temporarily into another before it releases entirely. This presents in reverse form if one is to be born in the desire realm which includes humans.
This displays as appearences present upon dying....first in solid form is consciousness, what we see right now. Then regressing(in a dying process) to liquid form with appearence of a mirage, then into fire form with appearence of smoke. Then into what is described as wind(energy) with a flickering light as blowing in a wind. In final form, as a very subtle consciousness with no real physical support, is simply clear light appearence.
So(perhaps you are familiar with all these things and this way of thinking of things I don't know).....
Imagine we were not in a desire realm and our consciousness in birthed form did not ride in a most predominant spot on solidity, or particles, the solid part of things as we envision them; but on liquid wind or other. This would not be a fish as all desire realm being exist in this fashion. Even though a fish swims it is a solid object in which consciousness abides. Even a ghost or god would have similiar channels of energy and go through a similiar constituancy appearence upon death.
But imagine we are not in a desire realm in which solidity has such significance. Imagine our consciousness abided not on the solid but other or nothing at all, as in a clear light state.
Imagine the variety of appearence if perhaps we did in final birthed form present with energy as predominate aspect on which consciousness rides. IN which things such as attraction repellence and gravity and those sort of things were our solid(these things are not solid we make them so). Imagine our consciousness rode on those things in final birthed form; not this perception of solidity. IN which event.... imagine then the appearences we would apprehend.
All certainly is conceptual in origin but there seem to be gross concepts and more subtle concepts. Our conceptual origin of things seems quite gross and allows only the presentation of objects in solid form. But as perhaps in a no form realm or some such, imagine how things may be.
I know things are best for enlightenment to ensue in this realm, the most spiritual progress possible, but that does not preclude that all birthed here even with the best on intentions will not birth elsewhere.
I would not prefer such places but it seems such could happen in that fashion to my personal opinion.
It would not be aresnic substituted for phosphorus but actually wind or liguid or light for solid. Totally different. We assume such cannot be as we cannot perceive such. But our lack of perceptive ability we know is no indicator of the existance or nonexistance of things.
WE are so gross we cannot perceive much at all in this state of human.
So in a daydream perhaps..imagine such could be true and what then would one see if one could be found to see? Imagine perhaps part of our great delusion is part and parcel of thinking all evolve in this way of consciousness abiding...from wind to liquid to solid. Image it could like as not evolve from solid to liquid to wind or not at all as to how our consciousness may ride. Image we are only biased to this opinion on how things are which displays in our reality, but it is not as things necessarily are. Imagine they can be myriad of all sort and semblence. Imagine we when presented with....well these are the physical properites of things and laws of reality.....we could respond with.....these laws are self invented and not more real then any other possibility.
To explain what I mean.
I do suppose personally that is how things are. We are biased to think we are it, our town is it, our nation is it, our continent is it, our world is it, our galaxy is it, our universe is it, our constituant parts of living beings are it, our realm is it, our greater desire realm is it, our way of thinking is it....
Imagine it is not it but one of only a billion possibilities. No it. Inclination only.
