Quantum physics: death, time, space

When is a dead person not dead? [Insert joke answer here]

Robert Lanza, M.D., might suggest a dead person is not ever dead. In fact, he does suggest that. He’s not the first to suggest that; Buddhist philosophy beat him to the punch by many hundred years. And he won’t be the last to suggest that. Lanza says that quantum physics says that, “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.” And, there are multiple universes operating on the same plane in time, and different planes in space (no, this isn’t science fiction), and death does not happen in any of these universes.

According to Biocentrism [the theory of multiple different, simultaneous, universes], 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.

When a body dies, when it expires, the energy doesn’t expire, according to Biocentrism, and Lanza. That’s hardly a new idea. But it’s an idea that negates the need for religion, rather than accentuates the need for religion. If you, or the energy that is you, continues to live that energy has to go into something, or be somewhere. So if we sit around wondering if your energy, that was you before you died, has made it to heaven or to hell, the answer is neither. That energy is still out there floating around somewhere, and to label it as either heavenly or hellish enemy takes away from the fact that it’s on Earth somewhere.
