The LDS scriptures refer to several states of existence, but the scriptures aren't clear about the characteristics of those states. This camp presents the belief that those states of existence are different from the mortal world in which we are currently living. That is, the matter that comprises those states of existence is different from the matter that comprises our mortal world, and the matter of each state of existence is different from the matter of the other states of existence. This implies that our scientists can not characterize the other states of existence, since our scientists have instrumentation that can only extract information from our mortal universe. This position is presented in more detail in the forum for the Multiple Universes topic.
