"The Afterlife Interviews: Volume 1" by Jeffrey A. Marks is a channeled book that tells of different ideas of what can occur in the spirit realm. This version contains among the following rich details: Page 65: A Soul is allowed to change their appearance in the non-physical realm. Pages 79-84: Infinite wisdom is not instantaneously granted upon physical death. However, the spirit can often gain knowledge that was a strong focus during their physical lifetime. For instance, there is an example given of a woman who was very much into science and gains an increased awareness around that arena. I admit that one of the reasons why this chapter interested me is due to my own strong inclination towards information on the higher self (connecting to one's soul) and the power of imagination. Pages 149-159: Evolution can happen in both physical lifetimes and non-physical experiences. Spiritual growth on the other side is seen more through the analogy of a highway with landscapes rather than a ladder.
