Many of us fear death. We believe in death because we have been told we will die. We associate ourselves with the body, and we know that bodies die. But a new scientific theory suggests that death is not the terminal event we think.
While the religious argue that life on earth is a mere warm up for an eternity spent in heaven or hell, many scientists dismiss it for lack of proof.
Dr. Robert Lanza is a science expert who claims he has definitive evidence to confirm once and for all that there is indeed life after death. He was voted the 3rd most important scientist alive by the NY Times.
Lanza and other scientists claim that they can prove through Quantum Theory that our consciousness moves to another universe when our physical body dies. In his book called “Biocentrism", Lanza explains that life lasts forever...but where is the proof?
The proof lies in the idea that death is a mere figment of our consciousness. The universe only exists because of an individual’s consciousness of it – essentially life and biology are central to reality, which in turn creates the universe; the universe itself does not create life. The same applies to the concepts of space and time, which is “simply tools of the mind”.
Concept of death as we know it “cannot exist in any real sense” since there are no true boundaries by which to define it. Essentially, the idea of dying is something we have long been taught to accept, but in reality it just exists in our minds.
Similar to the idea of parallel universes - a concept hypothesised by theoretical physicists. In much the same way as everything that could possibly happen is speculated to be occurring all at once across multiple universes, and once we begin to question our preconceived concepts of time and consciousness, the alternatives are huge and could alter the way we think about the world in a way not seen since the 15th century’s “flat earth” debate.
The double-slit experiment shows proof that the behaviour of a particle can be altered by a person’s perception of it. In the experiment, when scientists watch a particle pass through a multi-holed barrier, the particle acts like a bullet travelling through a single slit. When the article is not watched, however, the particle moves through the holes like a wave.
Scientists argue that the double-slit experiment proves that particles can act as two separate entities at the same time, challenging long-established ideas of time and perception. Although the idea is rather complicated, it can be explained far more simply using colours. Essentially, the sky may be perceived as blue, but if the cells in our brain were changed to make the sky look green, was the sky every truly blue or was that just our perception?
In terms of how this affects life after death, when we die, our life becomes a “perennial flower that returns to bloom in the multiverse”.“Life is an adventure that transcends our ordinary linear way of thinking. When we die, we do so not in the random billiard-ball-matrix but in the inescapable-life-matrix.”
The new scientific theory – called biocentrism – explains that there are an infinite number of universes, and everything that could possibly happen occurs in some universe. Death does not exist in any real sense in these scenarios. All possible universes exist simultaneously, regardless of what happens in any of them. Although individual bodies are destined to self-destruct, the alive feeling – the ‘Who am I?’- is just a 20-watt fountain of energy operating in the brain. But this energy doesn’t go away at death. One of the surest axioms of science is that energy never dies; it can neither be created nor destroyed. But does this energy transcend from one world to the other...or does it transform into something else?
According to Biocentrism, space and time are not the hard objects we think. Wave your hand through the air – if you take everything away, what’s left? Nothing. The same thing applies for time. You can’t see anything through the bone that surrounds your brain. Everything you see and experience right now is a whirl of information occurring in your mind. Space and time are simply the tools for putting everything together.
Death does not exist in a timeless, spaceless world. In the end, even Einstein admitted, “Now Besso” (an old friend) “has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us…know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” Immortality doesn’t mean a perpetual existence in time without end, but rather resides outside of time altogether.
When a person dies, they are both alive and dead, outside of time. It’s the 20-watts of energy that will experience the result. Biocentrism shatters our ideas of life, time, space, and even death. It also releases us from the confining worldview that life is merely the activity of an admixture of carbon and a few other elements. It leads us to the exhilarating possibility that life is fundamentally immortal. Life creates the universe instead of the other way around. In this new paradigm, life is not just an accidental byproduct of the laws of physics.
Consistent with the most ancient traditions of the world which say that consciousness conceives, governs, and becomes a physical world. It is the ground of our Being in which both subjective and objective reality come into existence.” —Deepak Chopra
Professor Stuart Hameroff from the University of Arizona has no doubts about the existence of the eternal soul. As recently as last year, he announced that he has found the evidence that consciousness does not perish after death. According to Hameroff, the human brain is the perfect quantum computer and the soul or consciousness is simply information stored at the quantum level that gets transferred, following the death of the body.
