Two leading scientists claim that the human brain is actually a ‘biological computer’ and ‘human consciousness’ is a program run by the computer that’s located in the human brain and that continues to exist even after death.
As the scientists explained, the soul returns to the universe after death and never dies. The debate whether the soul exists and whether it’s immortal or dies with the person is a never-ending story that has occupied the minds of great philosophers throughout history. The soul’s mystical nature still perplexes different fields of science. Recently, a team of scientists has discovered a new truth relative to the human soul – the soul doesn’t die; it returns to the universe.
Since 1996, Dr. Stuart Hameroff, an American Physicist and Emeritus in the Department of Anesthesiology and Psychology, and Sir Roger Penrose, a mathematical physicist at Oxford University, have been working on the Quantum Theory of Consciousness, which is based on the belief that the soul is sustained within the microtubules of the brain cells.
This thought-provoking theory claims that brain cells hold the soul within their internal structures called microtubules.
The two scientists believe that what people perceive as consciousness is in fact a result of ‘quantum gravity’ effects found in the so-called microtubules. The scientists named the process “Orchestrated Objective Reduction” (Orch-OR).
The theory explains that when people go into a phase known as ‘clinical death,’ the microtubules located in the brain lose their quantum state, but keep the information contained within them. Or, as the scientists described, when people die, their soul returns to the universe and doesn’t die.
In the interview he gave for the Science Channel’s Through the Wormhole documentary, Dr. Hameroff explained:
“Let’s say the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing; the microtubules lose their quantum state. The quantum information within the microtubules is not destroyed, it can’t be destroyed, and it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at large. If the patient is resuscitated, revived, this quantum information can go back into the microtubules and the patient says “I had a near-death experience.”
“If they’re not revived, and the patient dies, it’s possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul.”
As postulated by this theory, the human soul is not a mere ‘interaction’ of neurons inside the brain and it probably exists since the beginning of time.
