Science Digs Into Consciousness, Soul, & The Afterlife

Mordechai 2Sometimes science is redundant. If you’ve got faith, belief, and even experiences that confirm that life has meaning, consequences, and conscious existence beyond our brief time in our present physical bodies, you might not care what the average scientist thinks.

Or you might be surprised what scientists are thinking about now. (These make for some worthwhile clicking.)

A New View of Consciousness (PBS)

“…there might be a more dynamic relationship between consciousness and other states of matter—that our ability to perceive the world is both a means to an end and also an end (an “object”) in itself.”

Controversial View of Consciousness (Physics of Life)

“…a controversial 20-year-old theory of consciousness claims that consciousness derives from deeper level, finer scale activities inside brain neurons. The recent discovery of quantum vibrations in “microtubules” inside brain neurons corroborates this theory…”

Several Scientists Speak About The Soul and the Afterlife (Huffington Post, UK)

“What we consider the here and now, this world, it is actually just the material level that is comprehensible. The beyond is an infinite reality that is much bigger. Which this world is rooted in. In this way, our lives in this plane of existence are encompassed, surrounded, by the afterworld already. When planning I imagine that I have written my existence in this world on a sort of hard drive on the tangible (the brain), that I have also transferred this data onto the spiritual quantum field, then I could say that when I die, I do not lose this information, this consciousness. The body dies but the spiritual quantum field continues. In this way, I am immortal.”

Consciousness Lives On… (Outerplaces)

“Quantum physicist David Bohm, a student and friend of Albert Einstein, was of a similar opinion. He stated, “The results of modern natural sciences only make sense if we assume an inner, uniform, transcendent reality that is based on all external data and facts. The very depth of human consciousness is one of them.”
