The physical plane of existence is the plane of reality that we experience through our physical senses. It is the world of matter, energy, and physical laws that govern the behavior of all things. In contrast, the other planes of existence, such as the astral, mental, and spiritual planes, are often seen as existing beyond the physical realm.
In many spiritual and philosophical traditions, these other planes are viewed as more fundamental or “real” than the physical plane. They may be seen as the source or foundation of physical reality, or as the realm of consciousness or spirit that underlies all physical existence.
Accessing these other planes often requires practices such as meditation, visualization, or shamanic journeying. Through these practices, individuals may be able to explore and interact with other dimensions of reality, gaining insight and understanding into the nature of existence beyond the confines of the physical plane.
