This article posted in the Huffington Post immediately caught my attention. Putting aside relgious views for a second, it is interesting to try understanding and interpreting some scientific views on life, and in this case, cease of life.
This article with the work of Robet Lamza M.D ( considered one of the worlds leading scientists) talks about bio centrism. Biocentrism, the new scientific theory is the refined explanation of the “multiverse”. Basically the theory says despite the body dying the mind and “alive” feeling lives on, potentially in other universes. The basis is that even in death, energy never dies. That is a fact, energy can not be created or destroyed.
Here are two paragraphs from the article that put this theory into perspective.
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.
This really made me think. The mind is something we truly still do not understand. What we do know from science is that all of our senses are processed information from our brain. I’ve always stopped and wondered, how would it feel to be dead? The question seems kind of stupid for obvious reasons, but think about it. Can you imagine the lifeless nothingness? It’s hard to imagine your 4358435987451 mph mind somehow ceasing to exist, even in death. Perhaps the reason it is so hard to imagine is because, it doesn’t stop. Our mind and soul are not tangible, they are concepts that exist without needing form. Is there a possibility they can carry on in different forms when one dies? That’s the question this article raises, good read.
