The supersensible worlds have an energy and a form aspect.
The energies are the aura and to the aura related energies.
The form, shape, visual appearance, or configuration of objects is ideoplastic, which means modulated (set up, given form by) by the mind , the imagination. These shapes are three-dimensional and despite of their ideoplastic character, they are, from the moment they are created notable stable, durable and stay in existence effortless. When mental images are hold steady with a certain concentration, they stay in existence within the higher worlds, also after this concentration stops, and also in absence of the person who created this shapes. The mind can create its own environment here. This capacity can result in the formation of complete landscapes, large buildings etc. This ideoplastic formation, can not only be generated by conscious effort, but also by unconscious thoughts, desires, fears, emotions, dominant habits of thinking, fixed ideas and strong expectation patterns. That these ideoplastic shapes really do exist in spatially extended objective (be it supersensible) worlds, is supported by the results of an investigation by J. Eisenbud, in which a person succeeded to imprint mental images on polaroid photographs. In the initial stages of an out of the body experience, an uncontrolled functioning of the imagination and emotional tensions (be it in a very small minority of the cases), can lead to a nightmarish state. In this state one sees all kinds of or beings such as demonic beings or aliens or other cultural specific non-existent mythological beings. These are projections of the subconscious. The person experiencing these is not aware that it is oneself who brings forward these thought forms. If one becomes aware that these thought forms are self-generated, one will become free from them, and one moves up to a higher level of existence.
There are miners who have been stuck in a mine after a collapse, and describe a collective seeing of these ideoplastic images. These imprints in the psychic aether have shape, depth (they are three dimensional) and move, but the movements are mechanical, repetitive without purpose or consciousness. (A study into these collective extrasensory perceptions could prove perhaps that these ideoplastic shapes really do exist in spatially extended objective (be it supersensible) worlds). The ideoplastic surroundings can be an exact copy of the physical world, so that someone who has died could be under the impression that the surroundings are in fact the physical world. But it will become clear soon that this is a totally different world, on a higher level of existence. The ideoplastic buildings, landscapes, but also the bodies, originate at first automatically, without conscious intention, but in a further stadium, one discovers that one can change the ideoplastic surroundings consciously. At first it can appear as if everyone lives in this world in the same way as one lives on earth, but gradually it becomes clear that there are big alterations such as floating movements of the body, aura’s, subtle energy lights, while the energy one has in these worlds is much higher than at the physical level. Not only mental images take shape, but on the lowest supersensible world (‘aether world’) also every physical object has its ideoplastic counterpart. This extended world is the result of the mental activity of many human beings, worked out over a long period of time. This includes not only static surroundings, but also dynamic moving structures.
