Finding the Soul, Surviving Death
Soul. We humans know that we’re going to die.
We hope that we will have some form of afterlife. We are hoping that we have a soul.
But we know that our bodies decay. Therefore in order to have an afterlife there must be some part of us that survives death. We have come to believe in the concept of the soul.
Finding the Soul, Surviving Death describes a possible scientific explanation for the soul and describes the ongoing tests by NASA and others that may lead to proof of some of the elements of the scientific speculations described in my book.
I have always wondered just what the soul could be because I have always hoped for an afterlife.
Recently I attended a paranormal event where the people there said that they could talk to the dead.
I of course did not believe them. But what I witnessed there made me believe that maybe they could talk to the dead. It made me want to study and research the subject of the soul.
I have an aerospace background that includes mathematics, physics and engineering. I therefore wanted to find a scientific possibility that any of this could be true. If we have life after death, and I assume that we could only have it if we have a soul, I decided to search to see how a soul could scientifically exist.
I knew that our five senses could not detect the soul. I therefore knew that if we have a soul we would have to find it in some manner beyond our five senses.
I was thinking about how Einstein used his imagination to develop the theory of relativity. He could not see the parameters of relativity with his five senses. So he imagined things beyond his five senses and came out with his famous equation E = MC squared where E stands for energy, M stands for matter and C is the speed of light.
I decided to use Einstein’s equation to explore for the soul.
Einstein taught us that there is a definitive relationship between matter and energy. Take another look at his famous equation mentioned above: E=MC2 and take particular note of the relationship between mass, i.e. matter (M) and energy (E).
Our bodies are a matrix of matter. Our flesh and bones are matter, but matter is a form of energy. Therefore our bodies are energy matrices of matter.
Now let’s take a look at that matter. We will use the model we were taught in high school.
The matter of our bodies is made of atoms. The atoms have a center nucleus of photons and neutrons. Electrons orbit about the center that contains the photons and neutrons. There is a tremendous distance between the nucleus and the orbiting electrons, that is, compared to the size of the photons and neutrons and the electrons. So our bodies are mostly made of space.
The matter within this mostly space matrix is structured and organized by our DNA which is just a coded form of matter. It carries the code to structure our bodies in our mother’s womb and instructs for our growth. It provides the instructions for all operations of our bodies.
Now step back and visualize our bodies. Imagine a body magnified to the size of a galaxy. Really? Stay with me.
We could then use a magnifying glass to see the many specks of atom particles, but we would mostly see space.
Isn’t imagination wonderful? It can really help us better understand concepts beyond our 5 senses. Einstein was a genius at it.
Now let’s go a bit further in our imagination. Visualize the matter “decaying” to pure energy according to Einstein’s famous equation shown above. You may prefer the word transforming rather than decaying.
Is the body still the same body but now in an energy matrix of energy rather than an energy matrix of matter? Stay with me.
Now the energy matrix may not need all that space that the atoms needed. In fact, it does not need any space. It does not need to be a specific size as are our bodies. This new version of the body can be as large as the galaxy size we imagined or as small as we are or maybe even smaller. Actually it has no size at all, as we envision size.
Maybe I should mention that space is one of the eleven dimensions of universes just as are the spatial dimensions of up-down, left-right and back and forward; and time.
This energy version of our body is not detectable with our 5 senses. But it can be detected with electromagnetic sensors because this energy matrix is, that is it produces an electromagnetic field.
Truth be known, the body has always been an electromagnetic field.
So our bodies have always had a physical being as we detect with our 5 senses, and an electromagnetic being as can be detected with an electromagnetic sensor.
Recognizing these facts arms us with the ability to take our imaginations and speculations to another, very much more amazing level.
We then see what our souls really are.
