Is there more to life/universe than we even care to notice?

As we go about our daily lives, we are so focused on what needs to be done the daily logistics. Taken that into consideration, on your way to work there is an epic struggle of life and death, of battles and wars, dynamic landscapes all out in nature, while we live our fairly controlled lives.

Now what if there was more than even what's outside our bubble of atmosphere, even our theoretic bubble of multiverses. Is there even more, a greater beyond. The best way I can put this, and bare with me as I'm mostly a visual thinker without a keyboard of pictures. ( found it ( thanks youtube ))

An example of thought from the movie Men in Black ( a .38 second clip )

( In this clip, you are taken from earth, through our universe, through even that, into a multiverse of another greater universe where Extraterrestrials are playing what appears to be marbles with said universes. )

Somewhat as if there is a living fractal happening throughout every aspect of known and unknown space, where exactly would the fibonacci sequence take us in any direction we think of?

With all this being said, I ask you to think about gut feelings, and the very real phenomenon that beings seem to know information before it's time of unveiling ( ESP ), and for spiritual folks, do you think the afterlife is a realm of which is measurable?

I understand this may be too far fetched for some to want to bother with, to me this is how breakthroughs take place, to take your mind and place it somewhere else to break through too.

What do you think about this topic?
Do you have any preconceived notions about this concept?

    Jun 10 2013: When six years of age, I had a deep-rooted inclination to know God! I somehow felt from inside that if I come to know God... I would be able to unravel all mysteries of entire cosmos! In my search for God I slowly realized that I was a soul atman, the spirit within and not the manifest physical human form! As a spirit, as a consciousness I had manifested human form to work out my karma... remove dross impurities within!

    As my spiritual journey continued... I visualized God in different forms! With no preceptor to guide, I continued my spiritual journey all alone. Remaining truthful all the time, I could hear the sweet small inner voice of my soul atman that seemed to come from within my heart. Prompted by voice of my soul atman... I continued my search of God without fear, as if God Almighty himself was guiding me all the time.

    25 years of yoga meditation... I finally realized self, realized god in the wee hours of third of August 1993 at 37 years of age. This is my last manifestation on other earth, 8.4 millionth manifestation. As a soul atman, the spirit within I started my cosmic journey as form of amoeba (single cell formation)... the first manifestation in cosmic life cycle.

    I further evolved into multi-cell formation, then insect life, plant life, animal life and finally form of human beings! In its lifespan totaling 8.4 million manifestations on the whole... every soul atman manifested initial 7.3 million manifestations in insect, plant and animal life. In the remaining 1.1 million manifestations in human form... one was expected to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana in Hinduism).

    The sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... sermon given to mankind by Lord Krishna above 3600 years before now was the guiding light for all travelers of spiritual path. It is following teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita... I finally realized reincarnation, rebirth, afterlife was part of cosmic system! More on Bhagavad Gita here- http://www.bhagavadgitasummary.com
